After an undeveloped property has been excavated and its foundation built, the next step is to fill in the empty spaces between the foundation and the rest of the hole surrounding it. This process is known as backfilling a structure’s foundation. Having the proper equipment, knowledge in soil composition and precise filling techniques ensures the process runs smoothly.
At Kent of Fredericksburg, we have all of the tools and know-how when it comes to backfilling. We utilize the best fill material to prevent excess water from reaching your foundation and causing cracks to form. Our careful filling techniques avoid impact loading, which further prevents damage to structures and utility lines near the filling site, as well as stable compacting of the fill material.
