Land clearing, excavation, and earth work are in high demand here in Central Florida., for both residential and commercial applications. Cities like Orlando, Kissimmee, Clermont, Lake Nona, and so many others, are growing exponentially.

It is more than just moving dirt around, it takes the proper heavy equipment, experience, and extensive knowledge of Florida’s laws and permits, to get the job done right. The last thing you want is problems down the road.
Today’s land clearing methods have gone through enormous changes in the past decade. Modern techniques are safer, conform to local laws and are environmentally friendlier, than traditional methods.
The foundation of any building is expected to last for hundreds of years, supporting thousands of pounds. It needs to resist weather changes, say level and dry. While weighing several thousand pounds, the foundation withstands significant stress. In order for this to happen, the ground must be properly prepared and correctly excavated. Any corners cut here will show up when you least expect them, cracking, separating, and sagging.
A few things to take into account for each individual site are the soil stability, quality of the backfill, even the moisture and water table. It is important for the excavator to have the experience and knowledge to address the unique issues of each property to prevent any problems in the future.
