EXCAVATION SERVICES


fOUNDATIONS

We are very experienced at digging precise foundations for residential and commercial buildings. If you’re building a new home, we can help.

Accurate grading is essential to a structure’s safety and effectiveness. It’s also essential to landscaping projects where every visual element counts. We do grading work to spec and make sure that your land is sculpted in the exact way necessary.

Septic

We also excavate for septic system installation, removal or replacement. We can have your tank exposed and replaced in a matter of hours. 

How to Hire the Right Excavator

Nothing will influence the stability and longevity of your home or building more than the ground it’s built on. Which is why choosing the right excavation service is one of the most important keys to successful building. It’s important to verify that your contractor has a successful track record of jobs and has the right equipment for the work. Excavation equipment ranges from small earth movers to large backhoes and other heavy machinery that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. If you’re hiring for a large job then you’ll need to verify the contractor is up to it. Checking references and getting testimonials from past excavation clients will also help you make the right choice. When people receive good work they won’t hesitate to praise it and recommend that service to their friends.

 It’s always wise to get multiple bids for your excavation project. This will ensure that you’re not taken advantage of and that you get a fair market price. Generally speaking, excavation work is priced at a fixed quote, rather than hourly rate.

Excavation Safety

The safety of the excavation crew is important. Which is why the contractor should be insured and follow proper safety measures. It’s also essential to make sure they don’t dig where there are power lines or other utility lines. Consumers can call 811 to have your utility company tell you where lines are buried. They’ll even come mark them for you. This will prevent damage to your neighborhood’s power supply and potential danger to the excavation contractors as well. 

Questions to Ask Your Contractor

Permits – it’s important to know whether any work permits or specific licenses are required by Connecticut (or your particular state) to do the work you intend. And do they have these permits? Subcontractors – will they be using any subcontractors? You’ll want to know exactly who is responsible for the work getting done right. And that they also have the correct licenses, permits and insurance. Excavation Quality – what quality guarantee do they provide? What happens if you’re dissatisfied with their work?
Surety Bond – Is the contractor bonded for the value of your project? If they’re not, will they increase it for this project? A surety bond ensures that a contract is fulfilled if the hired contractor defaults on the work.  
 Payment – Does the contractor require prepayment or a deposit? If so, how much?
