FAQ about drilling

Horizontal Directional Drilling or HDD is a trenchless technology that allows a customer to solve their underground utility job without an open trench cut. It is safer, faster, more cost effective and requires minimal disruption compared to other forms of underground utility installation. Using our drills we bore into the ground and navigate the rods using our drill head locators to create the hole where the pipe will lay. Once we reach the other end of the hook up, we then pull the pipe back through the hole. We can either hook up the pipe or you can it’s entirely up to you.

We mainly pull HDPE, PVC, Steel, and Ductile Iron but we can also pull many other types of pipe. Just let us know what your job entails and we can solve your problem.

With over 25 years combined drilling experience, Double D Directional Drilling focuses on the project or resolution necessary to meet or exceed your needs.

FAQ about excavating

For the majority of homeowners, especially those considering renovating or finishing their basement level, either a sump pump or drain tile system, or the combination of the two, just isn’t good enough.

This substance is called efflorescence. It consists of deposits from the minerals in the concrete, mortar, or soils that remain behind when water evaporates from the surface of the wall or floor. It appears as a white powder or crystals. It is sometimes confused with mold, but it is not alive – just mineral residue. It is not harmful and can be swept or brushed off. It is a sign that water is (slowly) coming through the wall or floor.

Repairs depend largely on the nature of the foundation problem. For instance, a typical bowing basement wall can be stabilized in less than a day (situations vary) with little disruption to a lawn, landscaping or decks.
