What Causes Foundation Problems in San Antonio?

Olshan Foundation Repair - San Antonio is a HomeAdvisor Screened & Approved ProSan Antonio isn’t known for high rainfall. Most precipitation occurs during the early fall and late spring, but the area typically gets less than 30 inches of total rainfall per year.

San Antonio is near the edge of the humid subtropical climate zone. The amount of humidity in each season can fluctuate depending on the influence of the Gulf of Mexico, in addition to the winds.

The soil composition in San Antonio, Texas and the surrounding cities such as New Braunfels, San Marcos, Uvalde and Seguin is made up of moderate to highly expansive types of soil. During and after periods of heavy rainfall, the soil absorbs the moisture and expands like a sponge, while the opposite is true during dry spells.

When rain is introduced to expansive soils, the dirt can start to lift up and put pressure on the home’s foundation, even as the center of the foundation stays dry.

During drought conditions, the moisture content from the soil gets released. As the soil shifts underneath the foundation, cracks can begin to develop inside the home.

Are Foundation Problems Common in San Antonio?

Unfortunately, the answer is yes. According to Google Trends, an online database that tracks search activity across the globe, San Antonio is consistently among the most active metro areas for searches related to foundation repair.

The good news is that foundation problems can be repaired and even prevented, but you will need to keep an eye out for signs of a developing problem. Catching foundation issues early-on is critical.

If you think you might have a foundation problem it’s probably a good idea to contact a professional.

Common Signs of Structural Damage to Look for

brick wall crackMost homes in San Antonio have a slab-on-grade foundation. There are several signs to keep an eye out for that can indicate problems with this foundation type. Most concrete slab foundation problems originate from one or more of these five areas:

  1. Seasonal weather changes
  2. Poor drainage
  3. Expansive clay soil
  4. Trees and tree roots
  5. Under-slab plumbing leaks

Left unaddressed, these problems create visible damage to the home. For example, you may start to see separation between the walls and ceilings or the floor. The same phenomenon may occur with your doors and windows. You might also notice that the doors and windows of your home begin sticking or not closing fully. Small cracks may appear near the door frames.
