Excavation Services for Home Owners

By June 8, 2018September 20th, 2018No Comments

Many of our clients are surprised to hear that we offer excavations services for many different home improvement projects.  This is because excavation is more commonly associated with large scale projects and commercial construction.  There are, however, many applications for residential use that will help to make your job more cost effective and efficient, and which will deliver much more consistent results than excavating by hand.

Landscape Clearing

Excavation is a great way to begin your landscaping project.  It allows us to work with a clean slate and to give you the finished look you want for your home.  Through the use of excavation you are no longer limited to the current layout of your yard, but instead can customize your space to suit your personal taste.

  • Shaping earth to accommodate your landscape design
  • Removing debris
  • Clearing any unwanted plants and structures

Driveway Excavation

If you are considering a new driveway or stone pathways in your yard, hiring an excavation expert will help you to get the perfect finish every time.  Whether a gravel drive, a flagstone walkway or a paved parking pad, it’s important to start with a smooth level surface to prevent buckling and heaving that can shorten the lifespan of your investment.

Repairing Foundations

If you live in an older house, chances are you’ll have to have repairs to your foundation at some point or another.  While this is never great news to hear, it’s good to know that you can improve safety and efficiency by hiring an excavation team to get to the root of the problem.

Prepping for Construction

The first step in starting a home renovation or construction project is clearing the land and getting the area ready for the build.  Our expert team is familiar with construction code requirements and will work with your contractor to ensure that your reno moves forward without delay.

  • Digging basements
  • Clearing trees
  • Removing existing structures
  • Demolishing sheds and out buildings
  • Prepping for Pools or Hot Tubs

If you are planning home improvements that require excavation, trust the experienced team at Okanagan Yard Works to deliver quality service and impeccable results.
