Foundation Design in Dallas, TX
Your home’s foundation is one of the most important elements of the structure. Unfortunately, it is often the one element that receives the least attention; because it is the least visible portion of the home. As one client said “Money that is taken out of the foundation can be put into doorknobs”. In order to properly design a foundation, there needs to be an inspection of the lot, an assessment of the foundation soil, and a review of the home’s architecture. Foundations need to be strong and either supported on a stable geological formation or isolated from the effects of expansive soil. After the inspection is complete and the lot and geology have been defined, the proper foundation type can be chosen to fit the client’s objectives. The types of foundation are:
- Pier and beam
- Suspended slab
- Slab on grade (with piers and void boxes)
- Slab on grade
The slab on grade foundations can be either reinforced concrete with rebar or post-tensioned reinforcement. Independent Foundation Engineers are top-rated professionals helping homeowners with foundation design in Dallas.
Forensic analysis is a more detailed examination of foundation problems that may involve additional testing and analysis of soil and structural elements not performed in the standard foundation report. The aim is to collect evidence to present in court to establish claims for warranty and insurance claims settlement.
Retaining walls are commonly built to support structures and enhancing the landscaping. In spite of the crucial support they give to structures, there is rarely proper engineering done to ensure support capability.
