Re: Foundation on clay

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Do you have any information on LL, PL and PI for the

Can you get a local geotech company to give a quick
recommendation for lime stabilization?

Did you talk to the neighbors, if any, about what was
done to their foundation?
