Construction leveling devices are used to ensure the soil is in the proper place according to the plans. Graded slopes are created to make sure water flows away from future structures. The dirt is carefully smoothed out, so that slopes are not too shallow or too steep.

Utility Issues 

Underground utilities, sewer lines and power cables, are not always clearly marked. Detecting them may not be easy. Digging up these utilities can be extremely dangerous. Which is why professional excavation does excess research before beginning the project. 

Tree Issues 

Small plants and trees may be easy to excavate and remove, but removing larger trees and their roots take a lot more that bulldozing. It takes the experience of a professional to tackle these issues. Roots need to be expected before removing the tree and safety needs to be addressed as removing large trees can be dangerous and cause extensive damage. 

Hazardous Materials 

Hazardous waste left on abandoned or vacant property is an especially big issue here in Central Florida. Often times this includes chemicals, garbage,  unwanted dangerous materials. These items need to be properly removed and disposed of. 

Water Issues 

Water sources located underground can be difficult to detect until you start digging. Soft ground can indicate an issue with water, which can be expensive to reroute to make the property buildable. It is important to have the property inspected before purchasing.

Permits are required before excavation or site clearing can begin. To avoid any delays, make sure you have all the necessary information for the permits.
