Did you know?
Soil stabilization is a process where the physical properties of soils are altered to increase the strength or bearing capacity. This is often done by using Portland cement or a lime-based mix to form permanent bonds between soil particles. Soil stabilization is key to providing a strong working platform for the foundation and all other parts of the project.
