Expansive soils have caused significant damage in pavements and households; this damage leads to substantial economic loss in the world. In Mexico, around 12% of the territory is made of expansive soils and due to the problems that they cause, various techniques have been developed so as to stabilize them, which include mechanical and chemical methods, among others. One proposed technique to diminish expansion problems is the presaturation method which consists in provoking soil expansion by adding water to produce swelling prior to the structure’s construction, reaching a degree of saturation higher than 80%. In this article, a literature review about the efficiency of the implementation of quick and inexpensive stabilization of expansive soils applying the presaturation technique is made.
