Full-Service Excavating Contractor
At Kris Eilts Concrete & Drainage, we believe in doing right by our customers, which means using reliable equipment, following code compliance, and providing quality workmanship, you won’t find anywhere else. Our professional excavation team in Vancouver safely removes concrete, dirt, and debris to create a proper subgrade or base for other services like new concrete installation or french drains. Just like every house needs a good foundation, so does drainage and concrete. The end result will only be as good as the base that was prepared for it, which is why we take the time to do it right every time.
Our team is capable of handling a variety of projects, including removing and installing concrete, digging trenches to install french drains, preparing sites for new concrete, and building driveways, patios, sidewalks, and more. We are licensed, bonded, and insured to operate heavy machinery.
Our concrete removal services start with an awareness of underground gas, water, and electrical lines throughout the property. Once our excavation team has safely and effectively removed all of the unwanted concrete, we can then begin to prepare the subgrade. The quality and performance of the newly installed concrete directly correlate with the preparation of the subgrade.
The process of grading is done to ensure that we have a level and compact base before installing concrete. The degree of compaction, the addition of gravel or rock, and occasionally rebar will all have an impact on the concrete’s load-bearing capacity, longevity, and durability. Our team ensures this process is done with precision and accuracy to provide you with a beautiful and high-quality concrete installation.
Excavating to Improve Drainage
In the Pacific Northwest, we are well known for our extensive rainfall, but for some homeowners, this could mean flooding or standing water. Not only does this water prevent you from enjoying your yard, but it is also extremely damaging to the structural integrity of your home. A proper drainage system is crucial for all properties to prevent standing water and structural damage.
At Kris Eilts Concrete and Drainage, our contractors specialize in excavation for trenches that diverts water away from your home. We install french drains, channel drains, yard drains, and sump pumps to protect your property.
