Questions and Answers to Common Questions About Excavation
WHAT IF IT RAINS DURING THE EXCAVATION? WILL MY EXCAVATION SITE BE COVERED UP IF IT’S GOING TO RAIN?
Every worker at Parrish & Sons Construction is trained to recognize wet weather hazards and stage excavation sites to mitigate problems as much as possible. Rain is of course one of the bigger problems we deal with, and in many cases, we will simply cover the area well with tarp and weights or stakes to keep the tarp down so no serious damage is done.
HOW WILL MY EXCAVATION SITE BE PROTECTED FROM CAVE-INS?
With smaller excavation jobs it is simple to prevent cave-ins but when we are working with trenches deeper than five feet, trench boxes, shoring, sloping, or benching are mandatory installations to prevent cave-ins. By accounting for all underground utilities and soil conditions before digging, we know what we are dealing with and how to avoid dangerous incidents.
WHAT IF THE CREW HITS A WATER LINE OR GAS LINE?
On the occasion that there is a miscalculation and we hit a water or gas line, we clear the area, and keep our distance. Being mindful of what substances are leaking is important. At Parrish and Sons Construction, we will always contact the utility company immediately to have it dealt with professionally.
WHAT PROBLEMS WITH THE FOUNDATION ARE ENCOUNTERED?
Old foundations can exhibit cracks and crumbling which means they’re compromised, and any excavation company should proceed with caution when working around them. During new foundation installation, a high-water table makes for lots of trouble. But with the right equipment we can work to fill and dry your foundation.
SHOULD I NOTIFY THE NEIGHBORS? ARE THERE ANY DANGERS TO THEM?
Pursuing any type of major construction work should be something you discuss with neighbors if they are close by. They could be at risk for utility issues, and if you are quite close to your neighbors and digging is necessary up to their foundation they could suffer from the same problems as your property.
WHAT PRECAUTIONS ARE TAKEN FOR SAFETY?
At Parrish & Sons Construction we take every precaution for the safety of our team, our clients, and the property we are excavating on. We avoid falls by avoiding the use of mobile equipment and protect every trench we create. Prior to any digging, the soil is tested for potential issues and utility lines are mapped out and avoided. In the case of builds that take days or even weeks, inspections are done at the beginning of every day.
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT IS GENERALLY USED FOR EXCAVATING?
The prime vehicle associated with excavating is the excavator itself—a large piece of machinery with a long bucket arm used for handling material, digging, and demolition. We also use backhoes, bulldozers, graders, trenchers, dump trucks, and a wide variety of general construction equipment. When it comes to excavation and demolition, you can never have too many options. Right down to the common sledge or jackhammer if it’s right for the job it’s right for the job.
