Swimming pool excavation is the first phase in the construction of a new backyard pool. A backyard will become a construction zone. In some cases walls are removed, plants are uprooted, and a mechanical, parallel rut is embedded into the side yard of the home.
This is just part of the building process. Our machines and the process for removing all of the dirt can take a toll on any backyard and we try to minimize any landscape wear. An average pool will require us to remove about 140 tons of dirt from your backyard during the construction process, which equates to about thirteen truckloads.
Not all yards are the same. Some homes have large side yards, which can accommodate a truck and full sized excavator at the side of the house. Other homes may only have enough room to accommodate a mini-excavator. The cost of a swimming pool excavation is determined by the size of the pool and the construction access.
In order to get a clear picture, call us today and we can assess your area together. Some common choke points include gas meters, hose bibs, air conditioning units, and the overhead eves of a home. Turning radius and even the slope of the yard can affect what type of machinery we can use to dig your pool.
Our excavation contractor is happy to pre-site the home to determine a proper estimate for the pool excavation.
Excavation sets the stage for the rest of the project. This establishes the foundation and the elevation with which a pool construction company will complete the project. Excavations typically only take one to two days to complete. Afterwards, the dust can be swept away and the rest of the construction process can begin.
