Connecticut Excavation Project Types

Sewer Line Excavation

Many larger excavation contractors won’t actually do smaller sewer line repair projects. At Valley View Excavation we actually specialize in Connecticut sewer excavation. Sewer excavation involves digging trenches in order to access sewer lines for repair or maintenance. Homeowners typically call us after having a plumber come out to investigate a backed-up sewer system. We use backhoes and excavators to dig up a yard and address the source of the issue with the sewer line.

Slope Stabilization

Spoke excavation involves digging into a hill or slop in order to create a level area for construction or other purposes. It is often necessary when building homes or roads. We use heavy machinery such as bulldozers and excavators in order to remove soil and rocks from a hill. We then transport the material away from the jobsite. We also install retaining walls when needed.

Driveway Excavation and Road Grading

Driveway excavation involves digging and preparing the ground to create a level surface for a driveway. We use heavy machinery such as excavators, bulldozers and compactors to remove the soil and rocks and prepare the surface. One of the critical aspects of driveway excavation is ensuring proper drainage. A driveway that isn’t properly sloped or graded can lead to water accumulation which can cause damage to the surface or surrounding area. We carefully access the slope and drainage requirements.

We provide complete driveway and walkway services.

Foundation Excavation

Foundation excavation involves digging a trench or pit into the ground in order to prepare for the construction of a buildings foundation. The depth and size of what we excavate depends on the type and size of the building and we work under the direction of the buildings general contractor to determine the specific excavation requiremnts.

Septic Installation

We provide excavation services for septic system installations.
