Basement Excavation

If you want a house to have a basement, you are going to need a pretty big hole. The easiest and quickest way is to have a professional excavation team help you move the dirt in order for you to create the foundation needed for the basement and the rest of the house to be built on. Hiring a professional crew will help speed up the process, saving you the time and money of having to do the work on your own. You want a home that will last for a long time, and it is important that the foundation is set from the beginning, because once it has been built on top of, there isn’t any way of going back. You will want to hire an excavation team with years of experience and knowledge that will do the job proficiently, so that the rest of the house can’t be built on top of, without worry. Drake Excavating offers both precast and cast-in-place basements, depending on our customer’s needs. For builders in Central Eastern Illinois & Central Indiana, hire the team at Drake Excavating to make sure that your basement excavation is done the right way.
