Soil stabilization is a process for preparing roadbeds for pavement and building sites for construction. Depending on the composition of the soil, lime, cement, ash, and other ingredients are added to the soil to improve water absorption, reduce swelling and strengthen the roadbed or construction site’s load-bearing capabilities. The process of soil stabilization requires proper testing before the soil can be amended. Extensive knowledge of soil amendments and how to apply them is critical to the process. Many building and road contractors opt to hire companies that specialize in soil stabilization for this reason. Tallahassee Foundation Repair has extensive soil stabilization experience. In addition to roads and highways, Tallahassee Foundation Repair can provide soil stabilization for residential housing developments, commercial properties, and municipal projects.

Lime Soil Stabilization
Applying lime can significantly improve the engineering properties of soil. There are basically two types of improvement: soil preparation and soil stabilization. Almost all fine-grained soils, with some exceptions, can be improved by the use of lime, but the greatest improvement occurs in soils that have moderately to highly plastic properties. Throughout the process of modification, calcium ions supply by the hydrated lime is readily exchanged with cations adsorbing on the surface of the clay mineral. In addition to plasticity and swelling reduction, reduced moisture-holding capacity, and improved stability are the results.
Cement Soil Stabilization
Soil Stabilization can be utilized on roadways, parking areas, site development projects, airports, and many other sites where sub-soils are not suitable for construction. Stabilization can be used to treat a wide range of sub-grade materials, including clays and more granular materials. The process is accomplished by using a wide variety of additives, including lime, fly-ash, Portland cement, lime-kiln dust (LKD), and cement kiln dust (CKD).
