“Each year in the United States, expansive soils cause $2.3 billion in damage to houses, other buildings, roads, pipelines, and other structures. This is more than twice the damage from floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes combined.”
“U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimated $9 billion damages in 1981 resulting from expansive soils. It indicated that shrink-swell problems were the second most likely problem a homeowner would encounter, after insects.”
We can help you identify and mitigate these problems before they happen by keeping safety and cost-effectiveness at the forefront of all we do.
