Prep and Clearance
No two job sites are ever going to be the same; each comes with its own unique set of debris and obstacles that must be cleared before any work on your project can begin. Things like vegetation, trees, underbrush, and debris must be collected and removed before any ground can be broken. Another big thing we consider here are tree roots. Tree roots are notorious for growing underground and sprawling over large distances. Tree roots must be thoroughly removed and we ensure that there is at least a foot of space between your foundation and any roots.
The Actual Excavation
Depending on the situation and your specifications our contractors will predetermine the correct level of depth for your foundation. We also mark and set out the area so we know exactly the dimensions of the dig. Excavation is an equipment heavy task, we use heavy bulky machinery to dig out the soil and break ground for your foundation. Some soil types are more durable than others, and depending on the situation the foundation trench may require support as the digging goes on.
Breaking ground for foundations is hard, labor intensive work. As we previously mentioned, the foundation is one of the most important parts of your building structure, any problems with its construction could cause you a massive headache down the line.
