In short, excavation on a residential property first involves marking what areas are designated as being “for excavation.” From there, we’ll have the site evacuated at the right time specified by you, the homeowner. C.F. Russell Excavating crews immediately get to work with our collection of heavy excavation equipment — including excavators, skid steers, and dump trucks — moving all the dirt from the worksite. This is all in an effort to replace your current foundation or to implement a new foundation on the property for a house. After this first stage of a client project is complete, C.F. Russell Excavating paves the way for the foundation to be poured, typically a mixture of concrete. After your in-person, on-site consultation with us, we’ll provide a tentative timeline for how this excavation process will be completed.

Post Footings

Post footings are needed for construction work or other types of landscaping projects because it provides a foundation. The idea behind these footings is to evenly distribute the weight of a structure over a larger surface area, keeping everything stable and level. Using these structures is key to increasing the amount of load that can be supported. C.F. Russell Excavating’s team installs post footings on your Wilmington, MA and Middlesex County, MA residential property. This process involves pouring concrete at the base of a large hole dug in the soil, before a wooden support pole is stuck inside the concrete and into the hole. Not only does this prevent the need to remove large amounts of soil, but it also provides a strong anchor. Discover all the benefits of this option by contacting C.F. Russell Excavating!
