SILT, the Soil Type – Foundation Repair Tip Of The Day #57

Have you ever wondered what silt is??

In our previous video we heard from Brian who talked about sand as a soil type. In today’s #FoundationRepair #TipOfTheDay Brian discusses silt!! Silt is a granular material whose material size is between sand and clay. It’s typically made up of quartz and feldspar, and is typically found mixed with sand and/or clay. With a floury feel when dry, silt gets very slippery when wet. Surprisingly, it is very prevalent all across Southern California. Stay tuned for tomorrow episode where Brian talks about clay!
