Houston’s Hot Climate can Cause Foundations to Settle and Crack
Lately (2015-2016), there has been a lot of rain here in Houston. In fact, we are well over historical norms. Long periods of excess moisture teamed with Houston’s 100+ degree summer heat can cause the soils supporting your home to change, resulting in foundation movement and structural damage to your home.
Soil Conditions Cause Houston Foundation Problems at an Alarming Rate
Did you know foundation problems are more common in Houston, Texas than almost any other major metropolitan area in the United States? According to data from Google search trends, Houston is one of the leaders for “foundation repair” searches in the country over the past decade.
For current homeowners and potential home-buyers in Houston, understanding how to look for signs of foundation problems is a necessity. Addressing structural weaknesses early is key to avoiding more serious and costly structural problems down the road.
What is the Cost of Foundation Repair in Houston, TX?
One of the most common questions we receive comes from homeowners looking for an exact quote to repair their foundation. Since no two homes are built exactly the same, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer.
The truth is, foundation repair pricing can vary drastically in Houston, depending on the size and build of the home, severity of the damage, environmental factors, and the personal goals of the homeowner.
For many fortunate, quick-acting homeowners, simple preventative maintenance and/or drainage products can help keep costs well under $3,000. However, for serious damage; you may be looking at several thousands of dollars. According to HomeAdvisor, a popular home service locator, the average foundation repair cost for jobs completed in Houston, TX falls between $3,070 and $6,520 or $4,764 on average.
Potential home-buyers should also be aware of the possibility of existing and potential structural problems when purchasing a new home. If foundation repair was performed on the home in the past, it’s important to transfer any existing warranty under your name. It can also be a good idea to consult with a Structural Engineer before finalizing a purchase agreement for a new home.

Cable Lock™ ST Plus – Olshan’s Patented Structural Repair Technology
At Olshan, our solutions are built to withstand the test of time. That’s why only Olshan offers the exclusive Cable Lock ST Plus system (U.S. Patent #8,500,368). This innovative foundation support system combines the durability of concrete pilings with the strength of steel.
Cable Lock ST Plus offers significant improvements in the quality of installation, cost-efficiency and long term reliability. While most companies still use concrete pilings or steel pilings, the innovative foundation specialists at Olshan have determined a combination of both technologies can provide a stronger, better, and more reliable repair.
Although Cable Lock ST Plus is the most popular solution we offer in Houston, we also offer a variety of different piling types, as well as foundation lifting (an effective alternative to mudjacking) using a two-part Polyurethane mixture.
