Levelling of ground and curb
Your construction project is finished and you want to rework the land to eliminate the piles and other obstacles that have formed along the way? Does your land have negative slopes that move rainwater near your foundation rather than away from it? Does your layout have significant gradients or landings that require more than one or more retaining walls? Correcting a slope means checking the level of the earth on your foundation. Since it is important to leave some clearance between basement windows and your land level once levelled, you may need to install curbs to maintain a positive slope (directing water away from the foundation) to provide clearance to your basement windows.
For all these situations, the skills of the HEBR's team in grading will certainly be of great help! Equipped with tractors, excavators and high-performance loaders as well as exceptional agility, our team will make sure to correct the situation quickly, but for a long time! You will certainly be charmed by the impeccable level of finish proposed by our active excavation company on the South Shore.
In addition, to avoid having to mop and mop for weeks every time the front door opens, you can opt for HEBR's peat-laying service.
Do you need to prepare your land for construction? The earthwork phase is essential. The latter involves modelling the soil and moving the earth and rock to provide a solid and adequate base for building houses, terraces, swimming pools, walkways and more.
This step involves clearing (removal of the top layer of organic matter) and backfilling (filling cavities and portions of soil too low) of the land.
The earthworks stage is also important at the end of your work! Using professionals such as Excavation HEBR during these steps helps to avoid settling the earth or a long-term landslide, as well as damage to pre-existing underground structures.
The retaining wall can have various uses, but its main purpose is to retain the land on a steep slope. This makes it easier to level the ground and enjoy a space that was previously unusable due to its elevation difference.
It should be noted that the retaining wall is also very popular in the field of landscaping, where it allows the creation of tiered beds.
