Depending on the project there are multiple methods when it comes to breaking up concrete or excavating rocks from land. Knowing which method to use in which situation is key, and a prime reason for working with professional excavation contractors like Avery Excavating Ltd..
Using a drill, we’ll create holes to insert rock breaker chemicals. It is important to not attempt this on your own, as holes have to be a specific size and depth or you’ll be dealing with dangerous blowout as the mixture does its job. Within 24 hours, you’ll have smaller more manageable pieces of rock to deal with.
By carefully and strategically drilling holes with a jackhammer, we’ve been able to remove many larger rocks and boulders from residential and commercial Calgary properties. Effective for concrete removal as well, jack hammers can chisel away until there’s nothing left!
Blowing up rocks might sound like one of the more entertaining things you can do, but at Avery Excavating Ltd., we proceed with caution any time we use this method, and only use it as a last resort. We’ll drive wedges into the boulder and insert explosives that force the rock to break into multiple pieces, much like with the expansion and jackhammer methods.
As demolition contractors, rock removal is one of the tasks that takes less setup to perform, but can be dangerous nonetheless. When you work with Avery Excavating Ltd., you’ll have access to competitive rates making it simple to choose the professional advantage, and you won’t have to heft any rocks around yourself!
Rock Excavation Rates
Rock excavation cost depends very much on the size of the rock, quantity of rocks, and location we’ll be working in. While it’s hard to estimate the cost for services without an assessment, on average these jobs can cost between $5-$35 per cubic yard.
More dangerous methods drive the price up further.
