Foundation Destabilization

Areas with a lot of clay, sand, or silt in the soil will undoubtedly pose difficulties when laying solid foundations.

Expansive soils have a high amount of clay or silt. When they absorb water, they expand and shrink a lot when they dry out. This swelling-shrinking pattern causes soil movement. This puts stress on a foundation and perhaps leads to differential foundation settlement.

Sandy soil may not be very expansive, but it is prone to erosion. Erosion can result in cavities under a foundation and differential settling. On the other hand, Loam has equal amounts of sand, silt, and clay is the ideal soil for building foundations. Bedrock is another preferable base for foundation.
