The structural integrity of a building starts with a solid foundation. Without a solid foundation major issues such as cracks in the walls or foundation sinking or foundation upheaval can occur. This can be extremely costly to remedy and at worst, demolition of a building may be the only option. Before any concrete is poured however, the process of excavation must occur. Excavation is a vital part of the foundation process, clearing the way for the creation of a solid foundation that is able to withstand the stress and weight of the ensuing structure.
Excavation is the process of preparing a site for construction by removing rocks, earth and any other material that may interfere using heavy machinery and specialised equipment. It is vital component in developing the foundation of a building or structure. There are a number of methods of excavation such as digging, trenching and dredging. These all require differing methods and equipment the method used will depend on the characteristics of the site as well as the building requirements.

Without proper care and expertise, the structural integrity of nearby buildings can be affected. There is also the risk off affecting underground structures such as sewage systems or underground cables. Much of the excavation work requires the use of heavy machinery and the movement of rock, debris and earth which can be dangerous when undertaken by an unskilled worker. It is for these reasons it is vital you use an expert service. At Fort Worth Concrete Stamping we have all the necessary equipment and expertise to complete excavation work quickly and safely

While it does not take long to create a concrete slab, it is a strong and long-lasting foundation choice. It is also cost-effective and allows for a wide range of interior flooring choices.
