To do that, we hire and work with experienced professionals, including excavation experts. We’re dedicated to ensuring every project runs smoothly and want to share our top five tips to make sure you have the best excavation experience.

Choose The Best Professional For The Job

When you need to hire a professional to handle digging and excavation, it’s important to make sure you hire one with the right experience that you can trust. 

6 Questions To Ask Your Excavating Contractor

Get Proper Permits In Place

Depending on the excavation company you hire, they may be able to handle permits for you. That’s how we do it at SiteWorx, but whether you have to handle permits yourself or the company will do it for you, be aware of exactly what permits your project needs before you begin.

Mark Utility Lines

Before any digging or excavation work can begin, underground utility lines for gas, electric, and water need to be clearly identified and marked. If your project is in Indiana, you can call 811 or visit to schedule a utility crew visit. This service is provided at no charge and marketing is usually done in chalk or by using flags.

If you’re relying on 811 for this service, make sure you contact them at least two days in advance before digging will begin.

Test The Soil

Before you break ground, testing your soil is always a good idea. Soil can become contaminated or unstable due to chemicals leaching into it. There’s no way to know if your soil will need remediation without testing it.
