Home > OUR SERVICES > Excavation


There are typically two primary options to remedy a plumbing issue. Traditional excavation and trenchless pipe repair are the two solutions used by most professional plumbing companies. For Dynamic Drains, we know that each plumbing system is unique, and when one solution isn’t ideal, our expert technicians are professionally trained to complete excavation work. When possible, our master plumber and technicians rely on trenchless technologies to make repairs. However, there are some plumbing replacement needs that call for excavation to get the job done right.

We offer excavation services to various areas around Southeast Michigan including Water Line Ann Arbor, Canton, Chelsea, Howell, and Dundee. The Dynamic Drains team will not use an excavation technique unless we are absolutely sure the plumbing repair method is the best solution to your problem. Our skilled technicians will explain the entire excavation process, answering any questions you may have.


How Excavation Services Work

The amount of digging during your excavation project will depend on the severity of the damage and work scope. For severe line breaks or a complete pipe collapse, the scope of work will be larger than for partial line replacements. When an entire pipeline needs to be replaced or laid, the Dynamic Drains team will carefully dig up the existing water or sewer line or create a new path for a pipe installation. How far the pipe is buried beneath the land’s surface will determine the depth of the excavation. The climate can be a determining factor in how deep the pipes are laid. In colder climates, the pipes are traditionally buried deeper beneath the surface to avoid freezing.

The severity of the work needed will also affect how the excavation is completed. Manual digging may suffice for small jobs. The Dynamic Drains team will utilize sophisticated excavation equipment, like mini excavators, backhoes or other machinery for large-scale operations.

How to Know When Excavation is Right for Your Property

A variety of plumbing issues in Ann Arbor and the surrounding communities can call for excavation. Sewer line excavation is needed when trenchless pipe cleaning, repair, or replacement is not an option. In many excavation projects, the expert technicians with Dynamic Drains were dealing with:

  • Severely invasive tree roots that have completely blocked or destroyed a pipe
  • Off-grade pipe material
  • Leaking joints that are causing raw sewage to flow into a yard or soil
  • Corrosion that will not allow the pipe to be repaired through trenchless solutions
  • Collapsed pipes
  • Broken or cracked pipes
  • Blockages to the main sewer line or those that restricted water flow
  • Bellied pipe
