Excavation Services

So, you've got an excavation project coming up, eh? What's that? It's your first? Well, don't fret! All you need to know is that your very first step is to look up reputable excavation companies. Make sure to conduct independent research above and beyond any reviews you might read! After all, you don't want to waste your money! However, if this is your first excavation project, you might not be aware of exactly what it is that excavation companies DO. While each company is a bit different, it is usually safe to assume that they offer some or all of the services included in the general offerings of all excavation companies. Obviously, you will want to ask a representative of the company you're thinking about hiring for more exact and specific details.

With the above in mind, there ARE a few things you can expect to have access to, in terms of options you can purchase. Here are a few of them, with accompanying explanations:

  • *Excavation. While this should be a given, excavation companies specialize in the performance of services related to excavation. As such, their primary focus is on performing services related to the completion of the excavation projects you might have. "Excavation" is a pretty broad term, though, so keep reading to see some of the options you may want to investigate to make your excavation project as quick and painless as possible.
  • Pre-Demolition Consulting. Most people are probably unaware that excavation companies specialize in demolition, since it plays such an integral role in the overall completion of the projects of their customer base. Demolition is all about destruction (albeit focused, purposeful destruction) . Therefore, it should be glaringly obvious that it is ill-advised to let anyone, even someone working with an excavation company on a project of yours, loose on your property with demolition equipment. Some demolition is done with explosives, after all! Safety should be your primary concern. Excavation companies realize and respect this caution on the part of their customers, and as a result, if they offer demolition services, they will also offer a pre-demolition consulting session. This pre-demolition consultation is meant to ensure that the risk to both parties is kept to a minimal level, while simultaneously keeping the overall goal(s) of your project in mind. Surveying services may also be offered in conjunction with this service.
  • Demolition. Here's where things get fun (Only kidding…. mostly)! For any demolition projects that take place on anything other than a totally clear, soft excavation site, demolition will be a vital part of completing your excavation project. While demolition isn't a part of every excavation project, it is involved in most of them in some fashion, simply because the majority of residential and commercial excavation sites complicate things through the presence (and associated need to remove) one or more pre-existing obstacles before the "real work" can begin. Most reputable excavation companies will offer this service, whether separately or as part of a package.
  • Hazardous Waste / Materials Disposal. Some excavation projects are dirtier than others, and depending on the nature of your specific needs, yours may be one of them. In that case, you're going to want to take advantage of yet another brilliant example of quality excavation services: Hazardous / Dangerous materials disposal. Due to the increased danger inherent in such work, you shouldn't be surprised when, in electing to utilize this service, your wallet suddenly gets a bit lighter than you had anticipated it would - but then, this isn't something you should scrimp on! If you have dangerous or hazardous waste on your property as a result of your most recent excavation project, don't be afraid to fork over a few extra pounds! You'll be glad you did. Plus, it's illegal in nearly 100% of civilized living space, to have any sort of dangerous or toxic matter sitting on your property.

These are only a very few of the many, many excavation services your local excavation company can provide. If you find yourself in need of the services of an excavation company, and you want your project to be a real success, Google is perhaps your best source of information, with your phone book a close second. Remember to conduct thorough research before picking an excavation company to work with, and good luck!
