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.
