Waco’s Soil and Your Foundation
Waco and the surrounding area lie atop layers of jointed limestone. Interspersed with underground springs and fault lines, this limestone has the tendency to collect water in pockets. A top layer of clay, sand and gravel, much of it lain down by the Brazos and Bosque Rivers over time, provides a soft, shallow base onto which Waco foundations are built.
Though Waco’s soil is great for agriculture, its clay content absorbs water and expands like a sponge. When the water dries during hot spells, the soil contracts, shrinks and hardens. The expansion and contraction cycle can wreak havoc on foundations, causing them to shift, settle, and even crack.
Signs of damage may include:
• Cracked walls, bricks, mortar, ceilings or drywall
• Chimneys pulling away from walls
• Uneven floors
• Doors or windows that won’t shut properly
• Gaps above door and window frames
