Residential Excavation Companies Near You

Earth Moving Contractors In Your Area

A lot of renovation projects begin underground. Everything from plumbing repair to installing a new irrigation system needs excavation. Even driveway repair and building your backyard deck starts below the surface. Digging into the area for your new fixture makes it longer-lasting, better protected, and more integrated with the design and other features of your home.

But digging into the ground yourself or with unlicensed excavation contractors is dangerous. There are power lines below the soil and usually a water line that runs under your yard from the underground shut-off valve. Excavation services in your area know how to avoid fragile utility lines. They can also excavate without disturbing your foundation or unaffected landscaping. Many cities and homeowner associations require permits before large additions and excavators who work in your area will know the local regulations.

When you need part of your property excavated, find local experts who can get it done. Type in your zip code and HomeAdvisor will connect you with pre-screened excavation services near you.


"Beyond professional, the service was both efficient and considerate. Contracted only for excavation work, he helped out and then took over the plumbing repairs, working cheerfully and hard without thought to extra compensation. He immediately pulled out his own tools when ours were not up to the job. A wonderful experience of a small business owner working hard to earn business. "

"Jose and his crew were great. He not only did the drainage grading we needed, he had connections to install asphalt on the driveway. He also connected us with a person to take care of a retaining wall issue we had. Everything was done within schedule, even with my "scope creep"."

"I had another contractor with a Bobcat scheduled but he backed out at the last second. I called Kenneth at A&E and told him of my dilemma and that I was on a tight schedule. He bumped me ahead of another job and got what I needed done in time to start the project. Job well done!"
