CLAY Soils in Southern California – Foundation Repair Tip Of The Day #58

Did you know that clay soil is very prevalent in Southern California?

In our previous video we heard from Brian who talked about silt as a soil type. In today’s #FoundationRepair #TipOfTheDay Brian discusses the prevalence of clay and why it often impacts homes here in Southern California! Clay soils are especially common among our beach communities. They are typically finely compacted until the soils becomes dry and begin to contract. It’s especially common to see clay soils below the foundations of hillside homes, and clay is usually the cause of a home moving down the hillside.
