Galveston is a coastal region city found at Galveston and Pelican Island at state of Texas. It is an old city as first settlements in this area were constructed as far back as 1816. The building then was used as war support centers but with time, Galveston developed to a city of settlers. Building in the area may have been reconstructed severally and transformed but the soil underneath is the same.
It has clay soil which expands during wet or rainy season due to holding much water and shrinks during dry weather after losing water and moistures. Over years, there are many homeowners who experience frustration because of foundation damages. They engage in costly foundation repair. Most of the foundation problems and damages can be attributed to these causes:
- Soil swelling and shrinkage
- Compacted soil that loosens and settles during construction work causing movement of foundation
- Soil erosion above retaining walls and on hillsides causing sliding and slumping
