Footings, Basements

JJ & A’s excavation, earthwork, trenching, tunneling, digging, dredging, site development, and underground work all serve to ready the foundation. In this process, we clear away any vegetation or large rocks on the land. Bushes and trees often prove to be major obstacles in the early stages of a construction project. Remember, even if a tree isn’t necessarily in the way, its roots can become an issue years down the road, so it’s important to be thorough in the inspection and lot clearing stage of work.

 Next, the land needs to be graded. How deep we dig will depend on several factors, such as the type of foundation and whether there will be a crawl space or a basement. Slab, basement, or crawlspace foundation requirements will differ, with the process taking anywhere from three days to three weeks. Whatever the case, the process of excavating and laying a foundation is a critical phase of construction and cannot be overstated. The JJ & A team takes the time to ensure your foundation is built to last, beginning by methodically excavating to include the following steps along the way:


  • Setting Corner Benchmarks
  • Surveying Ground and Top Levels
  • Excavation to the Approved Depth
  • Dressing Loose Soil
  • Marking Up the Cut Off Level
  • Construction of Dewatering Wells and Interconnecting Trenches
  • Marking the Boundaries of the Building
  • Construction of Protection Drains

    "Found and repaired in the basement a leak on the wall and repaired by digging, cleaning, and patching the wall. I’m very pleased with their service. They rerouted the water flow away from the house to prevent future issues.
    They were on time and friendly. Will definitely use again and recommend to anyone."
