When you see a new structure being built, it can be very exciting. This is especially true if you’re building a new home. However, before any construction can begin, the excavation must take place. It is the first step in the construction process and is very important because this is where the foundation for the new construction is formed. Our Delaware basement excavating company has the experience, equipment and manpower to perform this crucial step to ensure your construction project is successful.

Trusted Basement Site Prep In Delaware

Once the construction project has been approved, all permits have been obtained and the survey has taken place, the site must be prepped. Construction can begin only after the site is cleared and prepped. Our team uses heavy equipment, including bulldozers, backhoes and dump trucks, to clear the site of trees, bushes, rocks and other obstructions. We can also demolish and clear any structures on the site. While we try to be as gentle as possible to surrounding landscaping and structures, anything within the construction site will be gone once the excavation begins.

Digging the Hole

Once the site has been cleared and prepped, we can start digging the hole that will be your basement. We use a piece of equipment called an excavator to dig the hole. An excavator can dig deep into the ground which is why it looks effortless when we dig the hole for your basement. Because a solid foundation is crucial to having a sound structure, it may be necessary to use backfill soil to allow for proper drainage and settling of your property.


As you can imagine, the excavation process leaves a pretty big mess. Between the removal of trees and structures to the digging, this isn’t a dainty job. It results in a pretty big mess. In construction, you can count on things to get worse before they get better. But, our team will clean up all the debris and haul it away so that your site is ready for the next step in the construction process.
