MOISTURE CONDITIONING

Moisture conditioning is the deliberate adjustment of the moisture content within the soil or substrate of a construction site’s foundation to achieve optimal conditions for building and structural stability. This process is crucial for ensuring that the ground upon which a building will be constructed is properly prepared to support the structure.

By managing moisture content under the supervision of a testing lab, our professionals at Greater Dallas Development ensure that our pad’s subsoil possess the necessary properties to prevent issues such as settling, subsidence, and structural instability. This proactive approach also aids in mitigating problems related to soil expansion and contraction due to changes in moisture levels, which can adversely affect the building’s long-term integrity.

Moisture conditioning typically involves the precise addition or removal of water to achieve the desired moisture content, followed by thorough compaction to optimize soil density. This meticulous process guarantees a solid and stable foundation upon which the building can safely and securely rest, contributing to the durability and longevity of the structure while minimizing the risk of costly repairs in the future.
