Foundation Problems – Dallas
Foundation problems in the Dallas area are well known. Local news stories occasionally highlight the primary issue which is our active clay soil layer. When the soil is exposed to extended periods of wet and dry cycles, it shrinks and swells like a sponge. If not mitigated, this soil movement can result in horizontal and vertical movement of a part of your home, which then can cause cracks to appear. These cracks can be visible at high stress points like the floors, around windows and doors, chimneys, interior sheetrock or exterior brick walls and of course, the foundation itself.
Pier and Beam Foundation Repair
Do you have a dirt crawl space? Floors over a vented, dirt crawl space can sink, settle or sag for several reasons; weak joists and beams due to moisture and wood rot, columns spaced too far apart or weak soil underlying the foundation.
Moisture is a particular problem because it can also result in excessive fungus and mold growth. At Foundation Repair Pros we offer several, cost effective solutions to fix pier and beam foundation issues permanently:
- Retrofit failing piers with concrete pad base and block or steel pier supports
- Retrofit rotten or broken beams (wood or steel I-beams)
- Re-shimming with steel shims
- Crawl space encapsulation with dehumidification
Slab Foundation Repair
Settling is the most common cause of slab cracks although heave is also fairly common. Slab construction is an important consideration in developing a unique solution for your specific home. Typical slab on grade designs include block walls with spread footings, monolithic pour, and poured concrete floating slab. Our approach to fixing the problem may include the following:
- Helical piers
- Concrete pressed pilings
- Steel piers to bedrock or equivalent

Correction of Foundation Drainage
Without a doubt Water Management is the critical ingredient to the long term stability of a foundation. Too little or too much water adjacent to or beneath a foundation is the most important factor in managing the health of your foundation. Foundation Repair Pros has several options for surface and sub-surface water management solutions that can be used to fix your site specific issues including:
- Custom engineered French drains
- Seamless gutters and downspouts
- Grate or channel drains
Remember, it does not do any good to level a foundation if a water leak or other water management problem is not corrected as part of the project. Long-term success requires both issues to be addressed and is the reason our company has been recognized as the industry leader. Be sure to check out the video on checking for water leaks that your can do yourself.
Our Free Foundation Inspection Process
The process we follow at Foundation Repair Pros is straightforward yet thorough. Our goal is to evaluate and advise you on the best technology and most budget-friendly permanent solution to your foundation issue; starting with a free foundation inspection.
Our foundation specialists will examine your home’s structure to diagnose precisely the cause of your foundation problem. Many criteria go in to this inspection but we won’t propose a solution until we know exactly what is causing the issue. Foundation movement (vertical or horizontal) leaves distinct clues – we observe, measure, ask the questions and get the facts first! We also check for plumbing leaks which are sometimes the source of your foundation failure.
Unlike some companies, we will tell you if foundation repairs are NOT needed! It could be that you just need help with water drainage or maintenance watering. We offer optimal solutions, not just house leveling services.
Evaluate alternatives – as discussed above, there are many potential options for fixing your foundation problem including various underpinnings, piers, jacks and anchors; we’ll evaluate these options to factor in your site-specific soil, water and foundation movement problems. We will tailor our proposed fix to your particular needs.
Proposed solution – we will present the best, proven solution available from our company to permanently solve the problem. This will include a detailed breakdown of the costs involved.
Schedule the work – we will work with you to schedule the work to work around your schedule and accommodate your special needs.
