Soil bearing capacity testing is a soil test completed in order to determine the soil bearing strength for a home or building. We complete many of these soil tests for house lifting due to storm sandy.
Soil bearing capacity soil testing is normally completed through collecting a soil sampled from below ground. It I a specific soil test. This type of soil testing is ideally should be collected from the bottom elevation of the proposed footing. If there is any existing footing then the soil the soil sample should be collected at the bottom elevation of the footing.
The soil sample after collection is sent to a laboratory for grain size analysis. The soil samples analysis classifies the soil sample. So the (soil testing) or soil bearing capacity may be determined.
In the shore area of New Jersey we complete soil bearing capacity soil testing for house lifting due to storm sandy. We have completed many soil bearing capacity tests for home owners, contractors, and architects throughout the New Jersey shore area.
A soil bearing capacity determination is one of the most important soil testing applications for house lifting. It is required to reduce the likelihood of foundation settlement after house lifting. The extra weight added to a foundation is something that my cause foundation settlement which is the reason this particular soil test is needed.
