4 Common Residential Excavation Projects

When people think of excavation companies, they usually think of bulldozers and backhoes digging giant holes in the ground. While excavation is a process of digging and moving earth – dirt, soil, or stone – from one location to another – there are several different kinds of excavation projects. Excavation companies like Five Star Home Services are far more versatile than you’d normally believe. The following are some of the different types of residential excavation projects we perform:


Solutions to drainage issues on residential and commercial properties vary according to the property’s problem. The types of problems leading to improper drainage include the slope of the property, the quality of the top soil, and existing drainage system conditions. Remember, homeowners usually need permits in drainage construction projects. Permit requirements change by the property’s type and location. We help you navigate all the subtle nuances between these property types and get your project underway without delay.


We specialize in both of these demolition services. our home will need an inspection before you move forward with demolition, which we can perform. We examine the home’s structural integrity. We check safety risks and hazards, the presence of mold, wood rot, and other hazardous materials. Understanding where these weaknesses lie will help us engineer a safe demolition. We can also assist you with disconnecting services and utilities before moving forward with demolition. We can help with disconnecting gas lines, water lines, sewage connections, and electric lines. It is of the utmost importance that you have gas and electricity lines disconnected. If they’re active at all during a demolition process, you pose a serious health risk to both your property as well as your neighbors’ property.


If you and your family are looking to install an in-ground pool, we can help with the project. We offer a service known as land clearing. Land clearing is when we clear potential obstacles like tree stumps, boulders, and prohibitive materials that might hinder construction. When deciding where exactly to locate your new pool, you may not think about which part of your property is easiest to dig into. We can help you find the best placement for your in-ground pool. After you determine the location, we can prepare the dig site for the pool.


A lot of people overlook driveways as the cause of water drainage problems. Because driveway pavements contain nonporous materials, water can’t slip through the pavement. This can cause water to pool around the driveway. In addition, driveway drainage problems are often caused by a too-flat driveway. Installing a more sloped driveway allows water to run down the property and into the street-side storm drains. If your property is not sloped, installing trenches on the sides of your driveway will help you improve your drainage. Driveway drains are installed using a metal grate on top of them. This makes them easier to clean and much safer to walk over. We help you re-slope your driveway and install the trenching around it.
