excavation requires the work of an excavator and grade person to remove the
ground to the proper elevations and to assure the foundation will fit within
the excavation. It is important to “over
dig” the width to allow room to poor the concrete footings, but not to “over
dig” to much to require more backfill. Also an “over dig” may be required vertically if there is unsuitable
soil which must be taken out and filled with proper fill materials.
Excavating, LLC works with experienced plumbers to ensure proper installation
of water and sewer laterals. Connecting
sewer and water consists of taping into the main, either in the road or
terrace, or connecting to existing lines. Also, we can install storm lines to down spouts if permitted by the city.
takes place after the walls have been poured and the concrete has been allowed
time to harden (7-28 days). This process
is required because when excavating for the foundation an “over dig” is
required to allow for the extra width of the footings and for tile lines. This process is also time to do a rough grade
to get the site close to where it should be, but cannot get it exact because
the ground will settle.
grades take place after the ground has had time to settle and allows for proper
grading of the site to ensure water flows away from the house and to the proper
channels. This is the last step in the
excavation process for building a house.
