Drainage is related to carrying water away from areas and could include ditches, trenches, storm drains, agricultural drainage, drainage for runoff, and so on, as well as any structures related to such drainage. These ditches have had excavating done to funnel water away from habitation, infrastructure, agriculture, and other areas that could be harmed. We do any land clearing.
This is a type of excavating classification that centers on the material being excavated, rather than the purpose of excavation. As you can probably guess, it pertains to the removal of soil (located beneath topsoil) and it could apply to earth removal for the purposes of laying a structure foundation, digging a drainage ditch, or any number of other construction or engineering projects. We do all land clearing.
Footings are foundation structures used to support buildings, bridges, and other structures by spreading the load so that the heavy structure above doesn’t sink or collapse. This occurs after a building site has been properly graded, at which point excavating can begin. This type may be somewhat more precise than other types as the concrete for footings will likely be poured and left to set. We can do all your land clearing.
Excavating related to roadways can have a couple of different purposes. For example, excavated materials may be removed to another location to make way for road construction. However, excavated materials may also be used in the building of the roadway, such as to build embankments. In some cases, unsuitable slope materials will be excavated and removed, and other excavated materials will be brought in to replace them. There may be some land clearing.
Rock excavating is based on the removal of materials, generally due to rocky surfaces that impede construction or engineering projects. This type of excavation is often considered more challenging than other types and may require some land clearing.
Stripping is a type of excavating that revolves more around land clearing a large area rather than digging a pit or a trench, for example. Before construction or engineering projects can begin, an area may need to be cleared of topsoil, gravel, sand, rocks, and so on and grading might need to be done. In such cases, excavation will consist of clearing away wide, shallow swaths of material.
This is often confused with stripping because stripping is the method of excavation used to remove topsoil. However, this type of excavating is specific to the material, topsoil, consisting of vegetation and the uppermost level of soil.
