Orlando’s Top Excavation & Site Clearing Service

Excavation and land clearing services are typically needed for Central Florida construction projects. Whether it is a large scale construction job or a residential home, calculating the dirt and leveling require experience and quality. 

But this doesn’t mean it has to cost a small fortune. Unfortunately, the bigger the job, it seems like the more bids you receive. Don’t forget “you get what you pay for”. Saving a few bucks now can end up costing you big later. 

Excavation is more important than many people think. Obviously, a low quote is very attractive, everyone wants to keep their expenses in check. But a low bid can be a red flag, meaning an inexperienced service, not dependable, or low quality.

An excavation service with experience and knowledge of the Central Florida environment is essential. Factoring in all possible expenses into the bid. Instead, a very low bid that tends to add on expenses once the job starts, quickly climbing out of control.

Low bids are often that way because they are cutting corners, ultimately putting your property at risk. Do they have the proper insurance or licensing? Who will be responsible if something happens, such as an on the job injury. Excavation is a dangerous industry, the cost of injury and death is nearly $13 billion every year! 

Choose a site clearing and excavation service with the necessary tools and equipment for the job. Ensure they are properly licensed and insured, as well as a portfolio of past clients.

Orlando/Kissimmee Excavation & Land Clearing; Planing a Construction Project?

Land clearing and excavation is a vital part of construction projects throughout Central Florida. No matter what type of project you have in the works, a new business, housing community, parking lot, or a residential home, the land will need to be cleared and prepared before construction starts. 

Typically land clearing is when trees, brush, debris, and top soil is removed before a project begins. But there is much more to the process. Which is why it’s important to have an experienced team with the proper equipment, and the highest quality of work. After all, you can’t build a great building on a weak foundation. 

Why Does Just About Every Building Project Need Excavation and Site Clearing

It may sound pretty straight forward, but there is a lot that goes into clearing a piece of property. For instance, water run off and drainage. Removing all the trees and rocks, then flattening out the soil for houses and a playground, easy enough. But what happens when it rains every afternoon, it becomes one big mud puddle. Central Florida has an array of terrains and different soil types. All these factors go into clearing the land, along with a good understanding of excavation. 

Green Space Conservation 

More and more builders, architects, and developers are retaining some of the trees for a natural green space. They add aesthetics and provide shade for walking paths, parks, and playgrounds. Protecting a variety of trees and giving them a spacious berth.

Orlando Construction Site Development, Excavation & Land Clearing

Whether it’s a large housing development or a commercial real estate project, every construction undertaking starts from the ground up. Central Florida is rapidly expanding, a solid foundation is essential for a successful project. 

While it may be invisible once the project is done, site preparation is vital.

If a site is not prepared properly before construction begins, the entire project can be compromised. Preparation includes land clearing, grading, proper compaction, soil stabilization, dewatering, excavation, paving, storm water and utility system installation. 

The first step is excavation and land clearing. Removing any unwanted trees and shrubs that are needed for the project.

This also includes any unwanted materials, rocks, stones, and garbage. Dirt may need to be excavated, depending on the soil and ground level, to ensure the highest quality, new dirt may need to be brought in and placed down. This creates a flat, secure surface for construction, which is vital for long term stability. 

The next step is land grading. This ensures the ground is reshaped to the planned grades. Proper drainage is imperative for any property in Florida, of which land grading plays an important role. It also helps control sedimentation, soil erosion, and surface runoff.  Improper grading can result in increase peak flows, high runoff, poor drainage, and flooding. If the ground is left at levels that are inappropriate, it disturbs the natural patterns of the storm water and can cause a huge, costly mess.
