Trenching & Trench Digging

Trenches are dug for a variety of home systems, most often they are placed before the home is constructed. When considering adding systems that require trenching, proper planning is necessary.

  • Plumbing systems, such as sewer lines & water mains
  • Underground electrical wiring
  • Drainage systems around the foundation in or in the yard

Backfilling is a necessary process during any excavation process. Unfortunately, most people don't realize how important backfilling is and often use the wrong materials or do not compact the soil well enough. This causes problems, for example, if a foundation is not properly backfilled, shifting could occur that could jeopardize the structure and result in expensive foundation repair that could have been prevented. When backfilling in CT, it is important to know:

  • Which material to use (rock, sand, dirt, concrete, etc.)
  • The soil composition around a foundation
  • The weight capacity of the object being backfilled (roads, walkways, drains)

Attempting large backfilling jobs without experience could be detrimental to the project and you could put your safety at risk. Always consult with a professional excavation company before attempting backfilling.

Joe is one of the best contractors that I have ever worked with. His decisions and advice reflect his extreme knowledge of construction - he builds and designs projects to last. Throughout the project, he always had a backup plan for everything. I gave him access to my house while I was at work; he is completely trustworthy. I highly recommend Excavation Contractors CT will use them again for future projects.
