WHY Foundations Fail in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area.

Climate + Soil Type: Over the past 10 years, the North Texas area has experienced climate changes. Severe drought conditions, interspersed with brief, heavy rains has caused imbalances in the soil. Natural expansion and contraction takes place througout the seasons, but the extreme variances stresses even the most solid foundations.

Grading issues: Most housing lots are not flat prior to new home construction and lots must be leveled prior to construction. Unfortunately, quite often soil in improperly compacted and can result in erosion or recession over time.

Improper drainage: Most homes are developed with a drainage plan in place. However, there can be changes that effect drainage patters. New landscaping (yours or your neighbors), poor gutter installation and general erosion can wreak havoc on a foundation. Signs of drainage issues include areas of standing water which accumulates after a rain.

Plumbing System or Irrigation System failure: Just like not enough water can affect a foundation, so can too much water. Leaking pipes beneath teh foundation or irrigation leaks can cause soil to heave or erode away.

Tree Root/Landscape effects: Trees love water and as they grow, their thirst for water can deplete the balance of water under the home. Overtime this can cause excessive contraction of the soil under the home, which contributes to foundation sinking and failure. Be cognizant of root growth when planting trees and shrubbery.

Inadequate Construction/Failed past repair: Unfortunately, we often visit homes with foundation problems that are the result of faulty construction. We also see many homes experiencing new foundation problems as a result of past foundation repairs previously attempted.

I have used Metro-Tex Foundation for the past 8 years on multiple projects, because they deliver honesty, clarity, and confidence in every job performed. Their expertise in identifying the source of the problem (when it is sometimes not so obvious), along with offering successful solutions for any foundation type (even when it means not performing foundation repair) makes me trust who I am using. If you are rehabbing houses in North Texas, you are eventually going to need foundation repair. When you do, why not select the best resource available and call Metro-Tex Foundation.

Mike, Dallas

I’ve had Metro-Tex repair the foundation on 2 different houses for me. The service has been excellent and very professional. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone. Keep up the good work!

Rita, Garland

Steve you have done several jobs for me and my family and you are awesome. I want to thank you for taking the time to explain to me about my foundation problem and which repair solution I should use. What you taught me saved me thousands of dollars. Again, I cannot thank you enough for your honesty, generosity and patience.

Diane, Rowlett

I used your company twice and I appreciate the fact that it never seems to be about money. Your company always tries to find a way to do it the least expensive way without cutting corners.

Tom, Sachse

We want to thank everyone with this company that worked so hard to repair our foundation. We watched the entire time you were at our home and saw how everyone that worked at our home was respectful of our property. All the mess was contained and cleared by the men that repaired our foundation. The owner Steve Sutherland is generous and fair about everything he does. We thank you so much for all you did to fix our problems.

Kenny, Arlington

I just wanted to say thank you. After our foundation was inspected, we were told that we had a maintenance problem not a foundation problem. We had gutters put on the house, took out the metal edging surrounding the flower beds and this solved our problem. Again, thank you so much for your honesty and time. It really means a lot to us.

Jimmy, Richardson

I wanted to thank all of you at Metro-Tex Foundaiton. My house was in very bad condition, I had several foundation companies come out. I even had an engineer report. When Steve came out there was no pressure to use him and he knew exactly what my engineer report said without even seeing the report. I used Metro-Tex because I could tell ou were very honest. I have recommended Metro-Tex to several friends that were just as happy as I was with the work done. Thank you again so much. I will continue to recommend you.


Metro-Tex did a great job at a fair price!! All my questions were answered. The work was done quickly & with very little distruption . They even did extra work spreading some dirt that plumbers had left in a pile. A great company! Will call them anytime.
