Tunnel Excavation

Of all the many and varied types of excavation available to consumers who happen to be in the market for an excavation company, tunnel excavation has to be right up there at the top of the list of the most commonly used. Think about it for a second: Tunnel excavation is just what it sounds like: You hire an excavation company, tell them you would like a tunnel excavation, and hey presto, before you know it, you've got a tunnel! But why would anyone actually WANT to pay for a tunnel excavation? Lots of reasons! Some of the reasons people might have for getting a tunnel excavation include:

  • Utilities installation. Everyone has them these days, especially with the increase in home offices - and "it" is a nest of wires connecting one's house to a bunch of utilities. If you yourself aren't this person, you know someone like them: This person has 4 phone lines, cable or satellite TV, a fax machine, and possibly a secret lair with a time machine, in addition all the indoor plumbing and heating and other modern conveniences that society has come to take for granted…. and they all have to be connected in some form or fashion to their house. Most utilities are placed underground, and require tunnel excavation to install or repair them.
  • Poo-Poo Problems. Alliteration aside, it is an unpleasant fact of modern plumbing that sometimes, the devices we rely on to process & dispose of our waste in a manner both efficient and inoffensive break down. When that happens, the quickest and surest route lies not in the construction of an outhouse, but in your pocket. No, not the cyanide capsule, your cell phone! If you call your local excavation company, they can often fix the offending appliance(s) in a day or less. How do they get their equipment where it needs to go? You guessed it - tunnel excavation.
  • Pest Control. This is probably the last thing on someone's mind when they inquire about the reasons for a tunnel excavation, but if you think about it, it might be the best one of all. Groundhogs, moles, and other burrowing animals can cause unsightly blemishes in your carefully maintained lawn, not to mention injuring pets, small children (both are remarkably curious), and the mysterious disappearance of any garden plants. With a tunnel excavation, their burrows can be destroyed, and, with the help of your local pest control agency, your rodent problem will be a thing of the past.

These are but a handful of the great reasons to enhance your next excavation project with the addition of a tunnel excavation. For more information, it is recommended that you contact one or more local excavation companies. Good luck!
