Colorado is home to purple mountains, amber waves of grain….and expansive soil. Two of those things are the reason people buy a home and settle down in Colorado. The third is an unfortunate side-effect, but one that all homeowners should be aware of. Damage caused by expansive soil can be detrimental to your home.
Bentonite, a.k.a. absorbent clay, a.k.a. expansive soil is the number one reason for foundation failure in Colorado!
Expansive soil will absorb moisture quickly and dry quickly causing the soil to expand and contract around your foundation. Most foundations are built to withstand this type of natural soil movement. The problem is when this process occurs unevenly. If the expanding and contracting soil doesn’t happen uniformly, your foundation is likely to crack due to the uneven soil movement.

Making sure you have the right gutter and drainage systems to divert water away from your home. This includes sloping the dirt away from the foundation. You may also need to put in a french drain to help divert water away from your home.
