Why do structures in the Houston area have so many foundation problems?
The answer is the type of soil on which they are built. Most of the Houston area's soil has a high clay content, which is sensitive to moisture and heat fluctuations. Adding water to clay causes it to expand and heave upward, creating pressures from underneath the foundation. When water is withdrawn, however, clay soils contract, which in many cases creates voids that can leave parts of the foundations without support.
Most commercial buildings and homes in the greater Houston area have foundations supported by this clay soil. Soil "gives in" when a heavy load is built upon it. A foundation settles when the load is too much for the supporting soil. The design of multi-story commercial buildings typically plans for an expected foundation settlement of several inches. Most homes, however, are structures that apply relatively small loads. These loads should result in reasonably minor settlement in their foundations.
The most commonly-constructed foundation is a concrete slab-on-grade. These foundations require a solid and stiff slab to counteract the effects of soil movement. As the soil expands or contracts, a well-designed slab should withstand the pressures created by the soil movement and maintain its initial integrity. Many of these slabs use drilled piers, usually belled at the bottom, and offer many advantages. They transfer the loads from the structure above to deeper soil strata that can be stronger than the surface soils. They are less exposed to the moisture fluctuations that cause them to heave or contract.
