Excavation – Salt of the Earth Inc.


Your home is an important part of your life—it’s where you rest your head at night and prepare yourself for the following day. But what if your house is missing features that are essential to you? If you’re planning to renovate it, you’ll need Our experts at Salt of the Earth Inc. to perform the necessary site work first.


Whether you’re planning to build a new garage or bedroom, Salt of the Earth Inc foundation excavation services will ensure that the ground below can support what’s up above it. Excavation is a crucial step of any construction project; a building without a sturdy foundation won’t stand the test of time.

To support a new structure, the land underneath needs to be level, free from voids, and prepared for construction. An uneven foundation may cause your home to settle. This can quickly become dangerous for your family. With our excavation site work, your house will remain stable for years to come.


Installing new gas, water, or sewer lines is not a job for a DIY homeowner. Hitting an existing utility line can have disastrous consequences for those in residential areas. We plan these projects with efficiency in mind. Our experts at Salt of the Earth Inc. search for optimal areas to add new lines that won’t interfere with the existing ones. The area will be carefully mapped and marked before any digging begins to ensure safety and precision.


Land grading prevents water drainage issues, which can damage the foundation of your property and lead to mold growth. The value of your residential property can increase substantially after a land grading project. Proper drainage systems will protect your home in the event of a flood.

Land grading is often the first step before other structures can be built, like a new deck or driveway. Not only does grading serve a functional purpose, but it also improves the aesthetics of the landscape.
