GMS Services. Foundation Stabilization


Expansive clay soil is a problem experienced across the United States and abroad. In the US alone, expansive clay soils account for more than a billion dollars in damages to residential and commercial properties.

GreenMarket Solutions, Inc. utilizes its GMS Soil Stabilizer product and application process to treat and stabilize expansive clay soils.

Laboratory testing on GMS Soil Stabilizer attests to the safety of the product to both soil and groundwater. The application of GMS Soil Stabilizer provides an effective and environmentally-safe means for remedying problems due to expansive clay soil.

Characteristics of Expansive Clay Soils

Expansive clay soils are susceptible to seasonal shrink/swell cycles due to changes in the soil’s moisture content. These seasonal cycles lead to soil particle swelling during the rainy season, and soil particles shrinkage during the dry season. Depending on the clay content of the soil, these shrink/swell cycles could have a significant impact on the stability of the soil, causing undue stress on foundations and other peripheral structures.

Common Symptoms

  • Cracked or distressed foundations, roadways or walkways
  • Cracked walls or ceilings within the interior or exterior of the structure
  • Sticking doors or windows
