New Orleans Residential Excavation Services

If you are looking for local excavation contractors to ready your land under and around the site of your new home, we offer residential excavation services to save you from the hard work needed to prepare your land.

Once all zoning, permits, and engineering plans are put in place, our excavation contractors will work with you to prep the site through:

  • Working closely with other experts, such as permit services, utility companies, and land surveyors in order to prepare for the dig.
  • Clearing the area of any troubling obstacles including trees, logs, roots, brush, or boulders

Once the project has been approved and surveyed, our excavation contractors will do the job for you in:

  • Trenching for foundations, pools and utilities and do backfills around any concrete work, if needed.
  • Grading and smoothing the soil after pouring the foundation and backfilling. We consider this necessary to keep drainage away from buildings and for driveways, sidewalks, and landscaping.
  • Demolishing any pre-existing structure with skill, precision, and extra care to remove obstructions while preventing damage.
  • Hauling away dirt and debris to keep the area clean and ready for construction.

Other residential excavation services that we offer include raising off the foundation if you want to build a basement under your existing home.

Our process involves:

  • Jacking up your house, bracing it, then digging a hole underneath.
  • When the hole is prepped, our foundation professionals pour in the foundation for your basement.
  • When the concrete sets, your house will be lowered and tied to the slab.

Commercial Excavation Services

New Orleans is considered an economic and commercial hub where you can see a skyline of low- and mid-rise structures.

With a thriving tourist business industry, our commercial excavation services offer help to transform the land around your existing structures for grading and landscaping to bring your business to the next level.

We perform grading to prep your site for foundations, driveways, and landscaping installations.

This helps to reduce the chance for future water problems because we create proper drainage in your commercial site. We take care of all the engineering required for proper drainage.

As excavation pros, we work with landscaping architects and designers to know where the trees, shrubs, grass, driveway, walkway, and other landscaping structures and elements will go.


Our additional commercial excavation services include:

  1. Demolitions

    We use the same machinery in moving dirt to tear down and move away any old structures in your commercial property.

  2. Cut and Fill

    We move the earth from a high area to fill in a lower area to level out stretches of land in preparation for road construction. If there are hilly areas in your commercial site that need leveling, we can use the dirt to fill in small depressions or valleys in your property.

  3. Land Clearing

    We clear your commercial land of trees, shrubs, and obstructive structures, if needed, to prepare it for new farmland, parks, parking lots, and commercial structures.

  4. Digging

    We use excavators to burrow into your land and cut out driveways, curbs, gutters, and trenches. We work closely with utility companies to trench for electrical, telephone cable, water lines, and septic systems so that all will be strategically located in your commercial land.

  5. Pool Excavation

    We have experienced excavation contractors that specialize in pool excavation. Our pros fill in and compact the dirt around the outside walls to give strong support to the walls of the pool. They consider soil composition and address any erosion issues to prevent future issues.

  6. Foundation and Basement Excavation

    Our excavation contractors also dig out foundations and basements including backfilling, which is filling in around the outside of the walls to help support the structure and allow for correct drainage around your foundation and basement.
