No surprises

We provide confidence. We help you prevent a disaster from happening during your project by identifying the location of all your utilities and any other underground objects. Once we have located and marked all of your utilities and completed our gas, water, sewer and electrical lines, you can proceed with your project confident that you will not strike anything unseen while digging.

Utility detection is crucial to any construction project where excavation is planned. Knowing the location of all your underground utilities prior to starting your project is a critical step in preventing utility damage, personal injury and cost overruns.

Our Services

Utility Locating

If you accidentally damage a utility line during a dig, it will not only be costly but can also be extremely dangerous. We’ll locate all your utilities — gas, water, electric, communication and sewer lines — in all kinds of environments, so your project will be safe.

Concrete Scanning

Don’t risk hitting a post-tension cable, rebar or conduit when you core or cut into a concrete wall or slab. We’ll find them for you and save you the headache and extra cost of coring in the wrong spot.

Subsurface Investigation

Coming across unmarked underground storage tanks (UGST) or other unknown objects during a dig can be costly. Our ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a very effective tool that we use to find them for you in advance, saving you time and money.

Underground Cable Fault Detection

When your buried electrical system goes down,  our Underground Cable Fault Detection service will pinpoint exactly where your cable has failed. We’ll save you valuable time and money and get you back to work sooner!

Utility Mapping

Don’t let the markings of your located utilities get wiped out by construction equipment or grading, making you locate them again! We’ll save you the hassle by creating a detailed GPS/GIS-based map as we locate your utilities, providing a permanent, sharable, regulation-compliant record.

Dave came out to our site and located the the underground utilities. His skill and abilities were apparent – you can see very quickly that his experience level is at the top. I only hope that the next time we need a locating service, Dave and Spearhead will be available.

I was on a tight schedule and Spearhead came out quickly and in short order identified the gas line I was looking for. They used several different types of equipment to detect the underground pipe. They were friendly and professional. I highly recommend them!
