The weather is getting hot, the ground is getting dry and you know what than means with our north Texas expansive clay. We hope you enjoy your Fourth of July! but once the partying is over :) take a read at this Texas A&M article we found (it's a PDF) about maintenance of residential foundation in expansive soil. http://fcs.tamu.edu/housing/construction_maintenance_repair/pdf/maintenance-of-existing-foundations.pdf
You will find some good information about gutters, drain systems, soil slope and landscaping. All the good things we always like to talk about.
Ya'll have a great holiday!
