Clay soils. They’re our territory.

Posted on 2 November 2021

Clay soils are an increasingly common problem when it comes to housing, whether for an existing home or a new project.

Homes built on clay soil, especially after a dry summer, are more at risk of suffering the effects of subsidence, the gradual caving in or sinking of an area of land. Naturally, the lack of water causes the clay to dry out, which creates a void below the foundation and therefore, eventually, subsidence. If you notice any new cracks in your foundation, it is very likely that you are a victim of this natural phenomenon.

Fortunately, there are solutions. For existing structures, the experts at Héneault and Gosselin can restore the full value to your property with a patented stabilization and straightening technique on piles. Our piles are driven by a hydraulic ram, which will support your foundation for good.
