Trenching & Backfilling

Do you need trenching or backfilling services - Residential or Commercial?

At Oly Mattera Construction, we have the expertise to help you when it comes to construction projects that require trenching & backfilling services. We are well trained in providing solutions for most purposes.

■ Trenching

Our services include commercial & residential trenching services, both new trenches and replacements including, but not limited to, water and gas pipes, electric and communication lines.

The trenching equipment that we use is designed for tight areas, usually present in residential applications. Our equipment is very powerful and it can perform any required job, from small to large. The main benefit to using proper equipment is that it can be deployed in areas with special requirements.

We have different equipment that we can change quickly as needed for the project, so that our job will not be interrupted for long periods of time; thus getting it done quickly and efficiently.

■ Backfilling

The way you backfill a foundation makes a difference to a home’s real value. Good backfill should be boxed-out and stable enough to ensure it won’t settle over time and won’t apply too much pressure to the basement walls. It should be coarse, well-draining material to help keep the basement dry. Backfilling needs to be carefully planned to make sure waterproofing or existing drains are not damaged in the process.

Whatever the material, backfilling a basement foundation puts a momentary stress on the walls. We at Oly Mattera Construction let the concrete cure for at least a week before backfilling. We place and compact the backfill carefully in partial lifts and make sure not to dump it all in at once.

Our company specializes in trenching and backfilling services in the Fairfield County Area and throughout Connecticut. Our experience, capabilities, and personnel are top notch. We offer quality services at very reasonable prices.
