The quality of backfill on construction sites can affect the entire building project for years to come, and at PBM Excavating Co., we’re committed to performing the highest quality work. We have more than 31 years experience in backfill, grading, and compaction, and in that time, our work has never been called into question.
Because hundreds of construction defects can result from improper backfill and compaction services, it’s critical that you choose the right contractor to perform backfill services,
Our PBM crews are not only knowledgeable about the expansive soils and clays in the Denver metro area (including bentonite), but we’ve also developed a quality assurance process for all of our fill projects.
After a foundation or slab has been poured or placed, we fill all of the voids around the foundation, compact the soil, water it, compact it again and repeat the process until we’re certain that the foundation is stable.
In addition to conventional backfill, grading, and compaction projects, we also have extensive experience with foundation repairs and replacements caused by improper backfill. One of our most noted projects involved homes in Ken-Caryl Ranch in Littleton, Colorado that had been damaged by expanding bentonite. We were called in to move the homes from their defective foundations, place them temporarily in the backyards of the properties, replace the foundations, perform backfill, and reposition the homes on their new foundations.
