Knowing What to Expect

It is important to understand some of the basic terms that are generally involved in the site work of most excavation projects. Knowing these terms when you get ready to hire a contractor can make the process of discussing the site work you need much easier. 

    • Clearing and grubbing (excavating soil): the process of removing soil to make room for some type of construction, like a basement or pool.
    • Filling: placing soil to fill in an area or to raise an existing area higher.
    • Swelling: what happens when dirt is removed, and is loose
    • Shrinkage: when dirt is placed and properly compacted
    • Grading: the process of leveling a surface in preparation of a building project

With over 20 years in the industry, we have the experience and expertise you need on your job site. However, when dealing with excavating, there can be issues that arise that can lead to unforeseen costs and delays. If this occurs, we will do our best to manage the situation appropriately and keep you well informed, but with our extensive experience in the industry we can usually see issues long before the site work begins. When you hire DiFranco Contractors you can be sure you are getting an accurate bid that includes your requested work as well as items that we find that you may have overlooked. We have the knowledge, equipment, and experience to do just about any project requiring machine work. If materials need to be imported or exported off site, we have the dump trucks to remove the extra materials.
