Before you can build, you need to ensure that the soil beneath your building, road, or parking lot is stable enough to handle the weight and traffic. Soil stabilization improves the durability by compacting the soil and removing excess water. This ensures that the ground will not swell, crumble, or otherwise move under your building or parking lot, which could result in significant damage and expensive repairs.
Soil Stabilization Procedure
Aggregate materials are added to your soil to improve its qualities. Depending on the condition of the soil and the amount of stabilization needed, different amounts of materials will be used. Typical aggregate materials include gravel, sand, clay, and silt. In some instances, lime and cola ash or bitumen may be used to stabilize your soil.
The aggregate materials are mixed together either on-site or off-site. Once the correct mixture has been created, it is poured onto your existing soiled and mixed using various pieces of construction equipment. This helps ensure the stabilization materials reach the required depth and provide you with the stable soil you need to continue your project. Once your soil has been stabilized, it can be leveled and graded, according to your construction needs.
