If you don’t have a trencher, chances are you’ll need our trenching services. Trenching by hand is one of the most time consuming and arduous tasks you can do as a home owner.
Don’t worry, though, we’re pros at it.
What is Trenching?
Ever needed to bury a sewage pipe, water line, or power line underground? Trenching is how you get that pipe or line underground.
Trenching is a narrow ditch that is just wide and long enough to emplace the materials you’re needing to bury.
With our heavy duty trenching equipment we can take the trouble off of your hands so you can get your water line in the ground in no time.
How Much Does Trenching Cost?
How long of a ditch do you need? How deep? Is your land composed of mostly black soil, limestone, or caliche? There are so many considerations when determining the cost to emplace a trench.
However, we make it super easy to get a quote. Simply reach out to us and we will gladly give you a quote for how much trenching costs.
How Long Does it Take to Trench a Ditch?
Again, really depends on how long and deep of a trench you need. Don’t forget that soil type plays a critical role as well. Whether you have black soil, sand, caliche, or limestone, all of these will affect how long it takes to perform the operation.
For example, if you need a 24″ deep trench to run a water main, you can expect us to perform that at 100′ per hour. Of course this is with good soil and minimal rocks and obstacles.
Hazards When Trenching
As with any construction project, there are inherently some hazards. Specifically with trenching, you have to be aware of underground utilities and infrastructure such as water and sewage pipes, power lines, and internet/phone lines.
You don’t have to worry about any of that with CenTex Excavation and Land Clearing. Before each project we request a site survey from Texas811. All utility companies in the area are they notified of your project and they are required to mark their lines based on the project specifications.
Checking for hazards is critical to ensure we don’t accidentally dig into preexisting lines.
