Whether you're building a new house or a new office building, you need to deal with the rock you encounter during construction. As you deal with this process, you can choose from two main options: blasting or trenching.
Since the rock excavation will happen on your property, you want to make an informed decision before proceeding. Below, we'll tell you why trenching is usually your best option if you live or work near Twin Falls, ID.
Initially, blasting seems like a quick, easy way to deal with rock. However, as a machine hammers or blasts through solid rock or pavement, it sends shock waves through the surrounding material. The impact can damage other structures, and your company will likely have to pay for the damage caused or for any liability incurred.
Blasting and hammering produces a symmetrical walls that are harder to fill, and the material removed from the area can't usually be used to
back fill the trench. Unlike trenching, the blasting process doesn't help with compaction. As surrounding structures settle after being disrupted by
hammering, the restructured trench might start to sink.
As you decide whether or not to choose trenching over blasting or hammering, get in touch with our professionals. We're happy to look at your
