Driveway Contractors in Pittsburgh
If you’re looking to construct a new driveway, replace an existing one, or expand your current driveway, you’re going to need skilled excavating contractors to get the job done.
Believe it or not, there’s a lot that goes into driveway excavation. This is surprising to many of our Pittsburgh clients, but it’s a fact!
At CMS Construction, we’ve got years of experience working with the right machinery to perfect our methods and provide every one of our residential and commercial clients with top notch service, resulting in driveways that look great and last for years.
The Right Depth
There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to excavating for driveway installation. You may be working with concrete, asphalt, or pavers in the end, so you’ll want the excavation to match the material so your installation is successful.
For instance, Pittsburgh clients that choose to use interlocking bricks or pavers will find that driveways should be at least six inches deeper than the thickness of their chosen brick.
Grading contractors are important in this process as well, and lucky for you, we fit the bill. Grading will ensure your subgrade is at the right height, and your driveway slope is at the right angle.
Driveway Excavation Cost
Cost is one of the most important factors when it comes to any type of construction or excavation project, and there are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to driveways.
As your demolition company, on average we charge between $3 to $5 per square foot to excavate and grade your driveway surface.
But you’re going to have to allow for paving material afterwards. Asphalt sits at $3 to $10 per square foot, concrete between $7 to $15, and pavers at $12 to $20.
If you’re uncertain of which material if going to be best for your design and wallet, just give us a call. We’re happy to advise and are educated in every aspect of driveway installation, not just excavation!
