What Does an Excavating Contractor Do?, Victor, New York

Excavation is a messy job, but it’s a crucial part of the construction process. Someone needs to clear the land safely and efficiently. When you hire a contractor, you expect your property to be ready for the build promptly, but you might not see all the planning and preparation behind it. So what is the excavation process, on and off-site? Victor Enterprises in New York shares what you need to know about excavating contractors.

excavatingWhat Role Does an Excavating Contractor Play?

Most people think that being an excavating contractor includes digging up and moving soil with backhoes and bulldozers, but this is only a fragment of the whole job. Excavating contractors prep the site with heavy machinery by digging down and removing earth to the grade and depth marked by a surveying crew. These measurements must be precise, and the earth must be level and compact to ensure stability. When the new foundation is poured, the contractor backfills around it to provide protection. They carry out many other excavation jobs as well, such as digging trenches for gas and water lines and excavating land for swimming pools.

Why Is This Important for Construction?

Imagine if your home didn’t have a solid, level foundation. Not only would your belongings be on unsafe ground, but you’d be at risk for sinkholes. Having a licensed and bonded professional prepare land for construction is a big step in safeguarding your property against whatever nature throws at it. Excavating contractors do a lot of work to bring everyday conveniences to the general populace; they help build and grade roads, explore historic sites for possibly buried artifacts, and dig sewers. After all the work is done, they even clean up after themselves, leaving your lot as neat as it was before they arrived.
