Frequently Asked Questions About Our Excavation Service

Do you need an excavating contractor in Grand Junction, CO but are unsure what you will get? Let American Pioneer Co. answer some of the most common questions and enlighten you about how excavation companies work.

Q: What do you do?

A: An excavation service provider is usually associated with hauling dirt around a property. However, our company does more than just that. We participate and oversee projects, including site preparation, grading, trenching, and soil management.

Q: Can you help me with a new home construction project?

A: Everything from foundation excavation to soil compaction and erosion control needs analyzing for such jobs. Our professional excavation company can help ensure that your projects move ahead without disruption and result in a sturdy structure. We will carry out all the planning and preconstruction work, the actual site excavation, and more!

Q: What services can your excavating contractor offer us?

A: We offer a range of services, including project planning, preconstruction, home excavation, underground utility excavation, road & infrastructure excavation, land clearing, and more. Whether our dirt work contractors are your primary choice or a member of the subcontracting team, we will deliver the safe services you need in a cost-conscious manner.

Q: What is the difference between hiring several subcontractors or an excavation service provider as a prime contractor?

A: Hiring American Pioneer Co. as your prime contractor means we will work directly for you, and you will benefit from special offers. As a subcontractor, we will still work for you, but indirectly. There will be another manager leading your project, and if you have any concerns, you need to turn to the general contractor instead.

Q: What kind of equipment do you use?

A: We use different equipment depending on the services required and the scope of the work. We have well-kept excavators with various attachments such as compactors and breakers. We also use trucks, dump trucks, dozers, graders, backhoes, rollers, loaders, scrapers, and more.

Q: Can rain impact the excavating?

A: It will depend on the time of the year and the duration of the project. Heavy rain that saturates the ground makes digging difficult, as mud gets caught in the equipment and needs cleaning out regularly. In addition to wet weather, wind can also cause delays. When you work with our excavation company, you do not have to worry about anything. We will plan for time lost due to the weather ahead to stick to the schedule.

Q: What happens to the piles of dirt?

A: Everything from digging out foundations to laying underground systems, anything below the grade will displace the dirt. If this dirt is clean, it can be used on other parts of the job, like filling in holes or grading. If there is too much dirt, we will happily help you send it to local schools or parks for landscaping purposes.
