Commercial and domestic services

If it involves dirt then we have probably done it before. Here are a few of the services we offer.

A stream in the woods during fall


We offer drainage installation as well as drainage repair. Surprisingly to some, there is a lot that goes on under foundations and retaining walls. Poorly installed drainage systems often collapse in just a little bit of time creating standing water and water under buildings. FTS Excavation services installs quality materials properly so that these systems are designed to last. We follow engineered plans when provided and can also problem solve and design and install non engineered drainage solutions depending on the situation. Our ability to creatively problem solve all types of groundwater issues is one of our fortes you won't find in other excavation companies.

A concrete slab


This is where it all begins. With the exception of land clearing, which we also do. Some of the components that goes into a good foundation is lot clearing, construction entrances, leveling, dirt removal with dump truck services, excavation and grading, drainage and compaction per plan specs. We do all these things with expertise so you pass your inspection the first time and can build the foundation with confidence. After your foundation is poured, we also will grade in a driveway, trench for utility installation and prepare topsoil for beautiful landscaping.

Sloping or Leveling

We are the excavation experts for sloping and leveling. Once the land has been cleared, we can make those beautiful cuts you see in the land that slope down to a drainage pond or ditch. We can also add retaining walls, which require exact level, compact foundations with drainage for beautiful and long lasting results.

We are experts at preparing and repairing driveways. Often times driveways are installed incorrectly creating problems with water and erosion. That is why you should call FTS Excavation services to get the job done right. We can also repair potholes in road work or driveways so that they don't come back and so that water runs off the road instead of puddling in places creating new potholes. Whether you are preparing for paving, asphalt, or gravel, we can properly install a driveways and roads for your project that will last.
