Foundation Repair Dallas
Foundation Repair in Dallas is often followed by the need to fix cracks in the brick mortar. This is because the cracks in brick walls are the leading symptom of foundation settling. As the foundation settles, cracks form in the walls. These cracks can tell you how and where the foundation of the house has settled, and repairing them prior to foundation repair can prevent a full inspection of the foundation and prevent parts of the house from returning to their original position. It can also cause more extensive damage to the house and the masonry when the new mortar forms as a wedge and pushes the wall over or off of the foundation. On pier and beam houses, it can crack the windows.

Brick and Foundation Repair in Dallas
As with many areas around Dallas, there are two types of homes. There are those which have settled and cracked the bricks and mortar joints, and those that are going to settle. This is why there is such a large number of competitors in the Dallas brick repair market. The second reason this market is so large is that most homes in the Dallas area are 80% or more masonry siding.
This is a great way that Dallas and the surrounding area keeps property values higher, but it also creates some problems. When repairs are performed improperly and the mortar is not matched in its color and crushing pressure, it makes those ugly cracks even worse. This lowers selling prices and property values.
