The Best Earthwork Contractors in Fort Worth TX Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire

The state of Texas doesn't require any state license of earthmovers, trenchers, and excavators in Fort Worth TX, so there is no state standard for competency for excavation or grading contractors in Fort Worth TX.

So there's no guarantee that any particular earthwork contractor in Fort Worth TX is even competent, is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all all contractors doing grading or excavating in Fort Worth TX who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified liablity and workers comp insurance for your protection, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

 
 

Excavation vs Trench

Excavation is often defined as any man-made cavity, trench, cut, or depression formed by earth removal. This includes excavations for anything from cellars to highways, dirt removal to landslide repair. 

A trench is formally defined as a narrow underground excavation that is deeper than it is wide, and no wider than 15 feet.

No matter how many shoring, trenching, and backfilling jobs an excavator or grading contractor in Fort Worth TX has done in the past, they must approach each new job with complete preparation and care, and the success of excavation work is dependent upon thorough planning.  When a trenching contractor waits until after the work has started to correct mistakes in shoring or sloping, it slows down the project, adds to the cost, and increases the chance of a cave-in or other excavation failure.

Before preparing a bid, excavation & earthwork contractors should be learning as much as possible about your property site and the materials needed to perform the work safely. Things they should be assessing on your job site prior to submitting a bid include utility lines both overhead and underground, weather, location of the water table, surface and ground water, soil conditions, traffic, and proximity of nearby structures.   A trenching contractor who prepares a bid without this full assessment is more likely to charge you for cost overruns or miss your deadline.

To make that assessment, the trench contractor should be doing a jobsite study, observations, test borings for soil type or soil condition, and consultations with local officials and utility companies. Failure to do so means the excavator is unlikely to correctly determine the right cost and equipment necessary to do your project safely and on time.

Questions to Ask Earthmovers in Fort Worth TX

• How many other earthmoving or excavation projects have they done specifically in Fort Worth, indicating how familiar or not they are with your local agencies, utilities, soil conditions, water table, and weather.

• Will the excavation companies give you names and numbers of previous customers who you can call as references? (All earth moving  contractors in Fort Worth TX bearing the Prime Buyer's Report - TOP 10 symbol have already had their customer references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Do the earth moving companies have experience in the same kind of project as yours, such as residential versus commercial earth moving or grading?

• How does the earthwork and grading company determine pricing?

•  Can the graders and excavators vouch that all their employees sent to your property are legal to work in the U.S.? (All excavation companies in Fort Worth TX bearing The Prime Buyer's Report - TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

• Will the earth mover show you proof of active workers' compensation and liability insurance? (All earth moving companies in Fort Worth TX bearing the Prime Buyer's Report - TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• In preparation for a written bid for your evaluation, what process will the excavator undertake to do a thorough assessment of the site, including soil conditions, local agencies, traffic, and more?

• Does the excavator provide written warranties for their labor? For how long and what does it cover?

• What happens if the excavator encounters toxic substances in the soil? Are they licensed and qualified to do remediation, or will you have to hire an outside company?

• How will the trenching company handle cost overruns due to inadequate planning? Do they guarantee to absorb any such costs or will they expect you to?

• Does the excavation company give any kind of guarantee of completion by your deadline date?

• How well do the excavators know their crews? Do they personally hire and train their crews, or do they bring them in from the outside on a project-by-project basis?

• How often and when do the excavators clean up your job site?

• If the excavation project is residential, will you have access to your home during the project?
