Soil testing for potential new home owners

Pre Purchase Soil testing for new blocks or existing homes

Buying a new block of land can be an exciting experience! Testing the underlying soil conditions for your new home's foundations however, probably not so much.

At Queensland Geotechnical Services, this is what we do and we love it! By testing the underlying soil conditions on your block of land, your engineer can properly design foundations for your new home. They might not be glamorous, but foundations are literally the basis of your new home!

Conducting a soil test on your new block of land before you go through with the purchase can flag any potential design issues that you might encounter. We test for soil strength, reactivity to moisture changes and determine if your block contains any fill material placed by humans. All of these properties will affect the final design of your foundations & costs. 

Structural failure of your home can be difficult and very expensive to repair, so it's paramount to make sure the footings have been properly designed to work with the (often changing) soil conditions. Choosing the right people for the job, means a professional and thorough soil test on your block and will save you money in the long run.
