Why is Colorado Soil so Different?
85 million years ago, Colorado was part of the ocean. As the ocean retracted, and the Rocky Mountains formed, the layers of ground were formed from silt, clay, and different rock components.
These soil elements have left homes with many different foundation problems. Homeowners and Real Estate Agents only discover this problem when they are buying or selling a property.
Yes, 85 million years ago, Colorado was part of the ocean. As years progressed, the ocean retracted from the land that is now the Mountain West of the United States. This retraction of land caused layers of different sediments to form versatile soil horizons.
Under the homes in the Front Range, there are 85 million years of sediment built up from the ocean. It is made of layers of silt, clays, and various rock compositions.
