Specialty Grading, preparing the roads for smooth travels

Whether driving into your driveway or your daily commute to work, the condition of the ground under the tires can make for a pleasant or nuisance of a ride. Specialty Grading has got the skills to repair driveways and roadways, as well as create the secure groundwork for new driveway and roadway systems with their specialty excavation services.

Driveway and Road Maintenance

The groundwork for a road or driveway will determine how well it holds its structure. The elements can play a huge factor in the durability of the road or driveway as well. With the swelling of the ground from extreme heat or cold or erosion from water, the properties of the driveway and roadway can diminish, needing repair for smoother, reliable driving surfaces. If you are noticing a washboard effect or ripples in your driveway or roadway, give us a call to provide the maintenance.

Driveway Excavation

Specialty Grading performs a thorough driveway prep. Sub-grading a driveway with driveway pavers or brick requires a precise cut and/or an accurate fill to establish the appropriate grade for the driveway pavers to lay.

Our contractors use an AB material, which is made of ¾ rock with sand and fine material and clean dirt with a green, gray, or white tint. We also use gravel or rock. 

The material used for the driveway will determine the grade required. Concrete driveway base preparation requires a hard-compacted base to prevent cracking. If clay is found in the soil, we will remove it to ensure a stable base, ideal when working with paving companies and driveway contractors.

Road Excavation

Our excavation services in Arizona also cover road excavation. We prepare new roadway systems by providing reliable, compacted earthwork underneath to secure a trusted base for the paving companies to lay the asphalt.

Things You Need to Consider When Having Your Gravel Driveway or Road Repaired

A driveway or road repair and maintenance project can be a big undertaking. It takes a professional excavation contraction and specialty equipment to ensure a successful high-quality driveway. Here are some things you need to take into consideration:

New Driveway

Actual Project Costs

The total price of the project varies depending on materials cost, equipment rental, and the size and scope(per square foot) of the project. If you’re planning to build a gravel driveway, then you’ll be considering the cost of materials as well.

The cost to excavate driveway starts at  $0.25 to $0.50 per square foot and goes up from there depending on the type of surface you have. If you have gravel driveways, then the cost will be on the lower end of the spectrum. If you have a concrete driveway, then the cost will be on the higher end of the spectrum.

Installation Waste

There will be some soil removed during the excavation process. Depending on how much needs to be excavated will determine how much waste there is. The excavation company will need to factor in the disposal cost of the waste as well.

Make sure that there is a dump truck available to cart away the waste from your property.

Proper Drainage

It’s important to make sure that the new gravel driveway or road has proper drainage. You don’t want to encounter any drainage problems, otherwise, you’ll end up with puddles of water on the surface that can damage the gravel and cause it to shift.

The drainage system should be designed to allow for water to run off to the sides or into a drain pipe that leads away from the driveway or road.

Specialty Equipment

At the job site, the excavator will need to remove the existing gravel, as well as grade and level the ground for the new gravel. If there is a lot of rock or concrete that needs to be removed, then a jackhammer will be needed to break it up so that it can be removed easily.
