Rough Rock Contracting - Best Excavators In Nanoose Bay

Although excavation and site preparation seems like a job that does not require a lot of skills and expertise, this is not true. Successfully completing these tasks not only requires years of experience but also rigorous training.

Many provinces do not allow contractors to excavate land without proper licensing and insurance. This is mainly due to safety concerns birthed by digging around gas, sewer and water lines.

Rough Rock contracting has been in the excavation industry for more than two decades. Our company is based in Nanoose Bay and in addition to excavation services, we also offer services related to the septic field, large yard, foundation digging, rock breaking, site prep, excavation, and more.

From helping you prepare a site for construction and excavation to installing a septic tank and designing large yards, we have you covered.

In the past 25 years, Rough Rock Contracting has covered several projects for clients from different industries. Our trained professionals have a keen eye for detail which ensures high-quality services and successful completion of projects.

Excavation projects can be challenging. They require careful planning and proper experience. Rough Rock Contracting can provide you with both.

Excavation is much more than merely digging the land with huge machines. There are many underground utilities that have to be protected. We make sure that there is an engineer on site who can read the maps and accurately locate the underground utilities. Moreover, we have the required excavation licenses and equipment for proper excavation.

Site Preparation

The first phase of any construction project is site preparation. It requires the cleaning of all debris, rocks and levelling the surface. An improperly levelled and filled surface affects the quality of the construction.

In addition to this, site preparation for each site is different. It depends on the type of soil, the gradient of the land, the types of rocks and the presence of utility lines. Rough Rock Contracting has prepared sites for its clients for the past 25 years. We also have all the required equipment from skid steers and dump trucks, to excavators and backhoe loaders.

Rock Breaking

The West Coast has a beautiful landscape. However, many areas are very rocky which makes it difficult to construct buildings. If you plan on constructing a building, you will have to remove or break these rocks.

For proper removal of natural rocks, it is best to hire a professional company. Rough Rock has 25 years of experience in this industry and has been providing safe and reliable rock breaking services to its customers in both private and public sectors. We have the trained staff and required equipment.
