Today’s sites typically involve unsuitable soils for construction. Soil drying and modification can convert unsuitable soils to suitable soils with the use of a Soil Stabilization contractor.
Soil Stabilization is the alteration of soils to enhance their physical properties. Lime Soil Stabilization can increase the shear strength of a soil and/or control the shrink-swell properties, thus improving the load-bearing capacity of a sub-grade to support pavements and foundations while lowering construction times.
The chemical stabilization of soil can be utilized on roadways, parking areas, site development projects, airports and many other situations where sub-soils are not suitable for construction. Stabilization can be used to treat a wide range of subgrade materials, varying from expansive clays to granular materials. This process is accomplished using a wide variety of additives, including lime, fly-ash, and Portland cement. Other material byproducts used in Stabilization include lime-kiln dust (LKD) and cement-kiln dust (CKD).
