Land clearing is a vital part of a renovation. More importantly, it’s almost always the first step in any big construction project on a new lot. We’ll walk you through what you can expect to see in this service. Visit our website to learn about all the services we offer. 

While it may seem simple, land clearing isn’t just taking down trees. First, the contractors will compare the blueprints with the land to figure out exactly what the construction will call for. They usually begin with clearing any vegetation off the land. Bushes and trees are also a big obstacle to construction projects, so they are removed, too. As the process clears the way for the rest of the project, it’s vital that all roots are taken out, as they can pose a hazard in the future. 

The next step involves grading the property. This is important for preventing erosion and ensuring proper drainage on the land. Installation of wells or a septic system could be part of this process. Grading could also include building an access road for the rest of the construction project, connecting the site to utilities, or digging a basement for a home. 

It’s important to remember that permits might be needed, which could cause additional fees for the project. Factor permits into your cost before you start the project to ensure you’re prepared for the expense. 

There are a lot of variables that can influence the cost and time of a land clearing service. Though they may be costly, they’re an important part of the construction process. 

We’re happy to answer any questions you have and work with you on a case-by-case basis to get you what your project needs. Call us or visit our website for more information.
