Weather in the Bryan-College Station, TX
College Station and Bryan, TX are located in East Central Texas in a region known as the Texas Triangle, which is one of 11 megaregions in the United States. A megaregion is a large urban area that is greater in scale to a metropolitan statistical area (MSA).
This region of Texas experiences a dry, hot climate and lower than average precipitation. In fact, according to U.S. Climate Data, the average high in August is 96 and the average precipitation is only 2.68 inches. Compare this to the national August average of 72 degrees and 2.9 inches and it’s not surprising to find an abnormally high number of foundation problems occurring in the area.
This might be way Aggieland is home to state-of-the-art research facilities and some of the best structural engineering researchers in their field, dedicated to understanding, preventing and ultimately fixing structural failures across the globe. The cutting-edge research that happens right here in College Station helps make life easier on homeowners.
How does the hot, dry climate in College Station affect your foundation?
Droughts and high temperatures cause the clay soils supporting your home to shrink, which can result in foundation movement, damaging your home over time. As the country continues to see droughts and higher temperatures, foundation problems will continue to increase.
According to a NY Times article titled “Shifting Soil Threatens Homes’ Foundations,” weather changes are threatening the stability of home foundations. “Extreme weather possibly linked to climate change, as well as construction on less stable ground, have provoked unprecedented foundation failures in houses nationwide.”
