Excavating in Minneapolis is More Than Just Clearing the Land

When you are in the building and landscaping business like we are, you learn very quickly that excavating the property and securing the foundation is one of the most important jobs there is.  Excavation is way more than just clearing a lot and pushing dirt around until it looks good. Proper excavating will build an underground world that will allow the world above ground to function to your expectation, without any floods, cracks, or failures.

A good excavator will dig trenches and install materials that will allow water to be managed properly, so that all this hard work is not washed away 10-20 years down the road. It will also provide keenly placed conduits that will allow electricity to be placed above ground, even in remote parts of your property. Most importantly, good excavating will render a solid foundation so that your building will not settle and start to come apart way before its time. For this reason alone, it is worth the time and energy it takes to find and use a great excavating company.

When debris and water are on a lot, they need special attention to make sure the final lot is truly ready to build on. These 2 things in particular have very dynamic properties in that water will drain away, and debris will decompose, leaving sink holes on the property that weren’t there before the work began. Only companies that work with the before, during and after stages of development will truly appreciate all hard the work that needs to go into this part of the development.
