Study the Soil Before You Build

Soil is the foundation of your foundation. Learn more about the importance of soil before you contact an expert Bay Area soil drilling and trenching company.

Why Does Soil Matter So Much?

Why, because the soil on which a structure of any type is built must support the load of the building, must be stable and drain well (so the building doesn’t shift) and must exert low lateral pressure. All these make for a stable and dry foundation. To construct a reliable foundation that will last on reliable soil conditions, contact an expert Bay Area soil drilling and trenching company.

To construct a reliable foundation that will last, contact Bay Area residential foundation drilling experts.

Foundation matters and there are different kinds! An expert Bay Area foundation drilling company will be able to deliver a reliable and enduring foundation.

Let’s Look at the Different Types of Foundations

A strong and stable foundation is the starting point for any enduring well-built structure. In fact, the strength of a structure depends on its foundation.

The foundation must support the “dead” load—the structure itself, and the “live” load—the structure plus people and other objects.
