Are you concerned about the effects of heat and drought on your foundation?
Dry Texas weather can easily affect the integrity of your foundation. Since temperatures during the summertime regularly exceed 90° Fahrenheit in Texas, the weather conditions remove moisture from the soil around your home.
Our soil is predominantly clay. When it dries, it shrinks. When moistened, it expands. When over-moistened, it turns to mud.
This process will sooner or later affect the foundation’s stability. When the hot temperature turns into a drought situation, you’ll have to find ways to counter the damage.
In this article, we’ll go over the basics of how and why hot weather affects your foundation. You’ll also learn about the various ways you can cut the associated risks and prevent foundation damage.
