Q What do I do about underground services ?
A If there are services running through the area but you are unsure of the exact location we can generally avoid them by exposing small areas by hand, a lot of our jobs don't
go deep enough to damage any services. If your project involves deep excavation and you are concerned about services we can scan the area and mark out all service locations
Please let us know if you require this service and we will send you a seperate quotation as we outsource this to a professional scan company, we do everything possible to avoid
services but we can not accept any responsibility or cost to repair any damage
