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.
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.
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!
