Facts About Yazoo Clay Around the Jackson Metro Area
Yazoo Clay is one of the country's most problematic type of foundation base. Add in the fact that Mississippi builders aren't required to do boring tests to get a soil sample before building, and you have a recipe for disaster in most cases for any home built in the Jackson Metro area. Expansive clay like Yazoo can and will eventually wreak havoc on a foundation. Yazoo clay runs across a large part of central Mississippi, not just Madison like a lot of people think. Our advice at Jackson Foundation Repair for anyone looking to buy or build around Jackson, MS is to have soil borings performed prior to building, or if you're buying to have borings done around the house prior to buying to know confidently if there's expansive clay around the home. A home that has appeared to be steady and stable for a long period of time is still vulnerable because the clay around here is heavily dependent on the weather. It's hard to pin point, but one thing is certain, if the house has remained stable for a number of years that's great, but if there is sudden year of excessive rain, flooding, or even if there's a long period of drought then that clay is going to start moving and shifting.
As an addition, a structural report that you may receive before purchasing a house is only going to show you what's going on with the structure at that moment. It will not tell you what potential there is for any future foundation issue (AKA: worthless without any sub-surface info)
Our final word about building or buying in Jackson, MS : GET BORING SAMPLES. It's the only way to assure what type of foundation issues you may or may not be getting yourself into.
