Texas building codes make sure your new home can stand the test of time, but Central Texas' clay soil presents a unique problem for homeowners. Clay expands when it becomes saturated with water and contracts as it dries; which can, in time, shift the entire foundation of a house; moving, tilting, and even cracking the foundation. Foundation shifts can cause doors and windows to bind or jam shut and, if left unattended for too long, may require costly repairs before it can be sold.
