Best Soil for Your Foundation

Get the dirt on the best type of soil to use around your home

Choosing the right soil to  protect your home from structural damage is important. Some soil will shrink and swell with the elements, pressure, and time. Expansive clay soils will change greatly depending on water content. Unstable soils are those which can settle and lead to major structural damage. To avoid such a slip, consult a soil engineer before your contractor breaks ground.
