Underground Utilities Repair or Replacement
When lines and pipes become damaged, cracked, or burst, the consequences for your property can be disastrous.
At our company, we specialize in addressing water mains and sewer pipes, aiming to alleviate existing problems and prevent future issues. Depending on factors such as the soil composition, earth stability, and seasonal conditions of your property, we determine the most suitable approach, which may involve pipe lining or complete pipe replacement.
Pipe replacement serves as a long-term solution, particularly for critical failures. We possess the expertise to fully replace underground pipelines, or alternatively, repair, patch, or line pipes when replacement is not feasible.
Sewer & Water Line Installation
By ensuring proper installation of sewer lines and water lines from the start, we effectively prevent the need for expensive repairs and utility work down the line.
Water Main or Sewer Line Extension
When the need arises, we have the capability to extend your utility lines to cover a larger portion of your property.
In the case of property development on fresh ground, our team is equipped to construct lateral water and sewer lines that seamlessly connect to the main city lines.
Switching from Well Water to City Water
If your commercial property currently relies on well water, you may be contemplating a transition to city water. This conversion can bring numerous benefits to your business, including enhancing the taste of your food and beverages, mitigating unpleasant odors, and eliminating issues related to hard water.
Although the process may initially seem costly and time-consuming, we are here to simplify it for you. Our team takes care of acquiring the required permits and offers a fair price quote, ensuring a seamless switch to city water.
Quality & Safety
The installation of underground utilities often involves excavating deep trenches, which can pose safety risks. Construction-related safety concerns can have unforeseen implications for property owners.
At Ellis Construction, we prioritize the safety of our workforce and adhere to both OSHA Trench Safety standards and our own rigorous internal safety protocols. By upholding these strict guidelines, we ensure a secure working environment and mitigate potential hazards associated with underground utility installations.
