Foundation Repair In The City of Brea

The city of Brea has a pretty interesting history, with it early beginnings in the crude oil industry before transitioning to the citrus industry. An interesting fact about Brea is that although its in Orange County, it’s also a part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area Anyways, on to the interesting stuff! Brea’s surface soils are very similiar to the soils present throughout Orange County. There’s is ton’s of expansive clay and loamy sand, which doesn’t bode well for many of the homeowners. 

These expansive clay soils will often lead to settling, or sinking, due to the reocurring cycles of expansion in the presence of moisture and contraction as it dries out. Over time voids will form in the soils allowing the structures built above it to move. This settling can lead to all different types of things from interior cracks on drywall to sticking doors and windows.
