Difficulty of Rock Excavation in Kansas City

Rock can consist of sandstone, limestone, granite or similar materials and be found in solid beds or stratified layers or as large boulders. Rock excavation is extremely challenging and is more time consuming and more expensive than soil excavation. It involves removing boulders, rock fragments larger than one cubic yard or cemented or compacted materials that require the use of ripping and excavating equipment larger than the equipment commonly used in excavation work. Special tools, often referred to as ground engaging tools, are required. We use every mechanical mean and the best techniques to break and remove rocks that stand in your way.

Rock, unlike soil, is too hard to simply excavate. The exact procedure to excavate rock differs depending on the strength of the rock, the job site’s proximity to other structures and other factors. During rock excavation, we often utilize rock boring or hammering. In certain situations, we use rock saws or excavators. Rock saws cut any type of rock, asphalt or reinforced concrete. We may also pneumatic hammers and tooling for our rock drilling equipment. When soil conditions change, our experienced team of reliable contractors cater our services to your needs to successfully dig you out of any situation.
