The demolition of a home can mean many things for different people. You may be excited to build your new home in Calvert County, Maryland which means out with the old, in with the new! Or demolition could mean something a bit more inconvenient… Maybe the house you have lived in for decades is rotting from the inside out… and it is causing you exorbitant amounts of repairs! After counting the cost, you may find that the price of the repairs would exceed the value of the home.
If a house has been deemed ‘uninhabitable’ then the repair costs will be significant! The cost it takes to demolish the home may be less than what it would take to repair the condemned structure to become worthy of living in again. This is where your homegrown Southern Maryland Excavating company comes in! Guy Excavating has a total of 58 years of experience, serving Southern Maryland, including locations like Mechanicsville and Hollywood!
Another reason for demolition… and no one likes to talk about this one… is if a house has become infested with vermin. Rats, termites, bees, bats and other critters have been known to take over homes that have sat for years, making the house completely and utterly useless.
But if you are building a custom home for yourself, perhaps in St. Mary’s County, Maryland, you may need an Excavating team to demolish the house and clear land for building. It may be in your best interest to buy a property that already has a home on it and then demolish the house before building.
In a different scenario, you could be selling a plot of land in Mechanicsville, Maryland, but you know that a clean piece of property will attract buyers more than a rickety old house from the great depression era. Although you have not rebuilt on the land, the attractive, clean lot could actually bring in a profit from the demolition work, in comparison to what it would have yielded with a dilapidated house.
What You Need to Know About Land Clearing
Do you have a major construction project in Calvert County or a different location in Southern Maryland on your upcoming schedule? Then you will need to know what to expect from your land clearing contractor. Long before the footers of the foundation can be dug, your land needs to be cleared from trees, brush or debris that could be within the property lines. After the lot has been cleared, then your Contractor can ‘grade’ the land. This essentially means that he levels the dirt with heavy equipment like a bulldozer or backhoe, making sure that there is a slight fall in grade going away from the house. It also means that he complies with any direction from the county regulators as to where storm water will be diverted to.
The amount of time it takes to clear land really depends on the project. After your surveyor has laid out his marks, then the excavating services can come in and get your land to a point where it can be built upon. It begins by clearing away any rocks or vegetation on the building location, leaving any trees that the homeowner has requested to leave in place. However, it is good to remember that even if a tree isn’t really in the way, depending on the type of tree, it’s root system can become an issue years down the line if too close to the foundation, crawl space or the septic system.
Don’t forget! Land Clearing is also a necessary first step if you are going to put in a new pool, green house, shed, garage, garden, pasture or if you are planning on laying out new farmland. Guy Excavating is happy to clear your land of obstacles all throughout Southern Maryland, including St. Mary’s County, La Plata and Prince Fredrick!
What is Site Work? So you are building a house in Calvert County, Maryland and you are at a meeting with your General Contractor… He says before we build your house, we need to hire a contractor to do the preliminary ‘site work’. You think to yourself… what does ‘site work’ entail? Site work is essentially the part of a construction project that is not part of the building of the house’s physical structure. It is the preliminary work to prepare a construction site for building. It is an early and essential part of the construction process and usually involves things like, grading, driveways and other utilities. Excavation always requires extensive use of large heavy equipment to get the job done right. Site Work is an important part of the excavation process to ensure that the construction site is stable and safe for all the workers who will be working there.
The definition of site work also includes things such as the preparation of the structure’s foundation and land clearing. Rough grading, Final grading and landscaping would also fall under the topic of site works. The excavating and paving of driveways or walkways are also included. Subgrade Stabilization, another aspect of site works involves making sure that all the soil levels that are beneath the topsoil are stabilized. This makes it so that the ground beneath your house or other building will not cave or shift in any way. Without proper site work, the building could end up having major foundational or structural damage, such as cracks in the concrete.
In St. Mary’s County, Guy Excavating has had the opportunity to do site work on hundreds of acres of property for many Maryland homeowners. We are happily serving towns and cities all over Southern Maryland, including Hollywood and Mechanicsville! Give us a call for all of your site work needs!

Water Drainage Issues
As a Homeowner in Southern Maryland, you no doubt have heard horror stories of what can happen to a home without proper water drainage around your house. It is vital that any water drainage issues be addressed since improper drainage can lead to problems with the foundation of your home. Concrete surfaces and pavers can shift and move when they are set on moist soil, eventually causing cracks.
Along with cracks in the foundation… water leaks, a flooded basement and mold in your home could spell a headache for you and your family! Along with these problems, standing water around your house can attract mosquitoes and other pests. Soil that is too moist can also cause the growth of fungus and other diseases that can wreak havoc on your lawn or the trees around your property.
Water Drainage problems can be fixed with better grading of your property, or the use of underground trenches, above-ground trenches, and even with the introduction of certain plants and vegetation. Guy Excavating is happy to help you with any of your water drainage issues, reshaping the land around your house to fix all of your water problems!
Do you live in St. Mary’s County and have a wet basement that is smelly moldy and musty down there? Guy Excavating can help you by waterproofing your basement! They are careful to keep your foundation in good shape and protected from the heavy machinery.
We can install a waterproof membrane or a waterproof coating to keep water from protruding into your basement. Coatings for basement waterproofing made from a thick tar can be applied by brush or spray. In other scenarios, a tar like substance or membrane is not necessary, but filling the void with gravel is all that is needed. The process involves excavation around the exterior of the existing building, then applying the treatment, and then backfilling.
When you think about the benefits of having a dry basement, the intensive work is certainly worth it. Just think about how instead of using your full basement for boxes and storage, you can use it as a recreation room, or a man cave! But you’ll never make that move if it is damp, humid and wet. Let us help you transform your basement into a home below your home!
For years Pat Guy and his team have been waterproofing basements all throughout Southern Maryland, including places like Hollywood, Mechanicsville, St. Mary’s County and Calvert County! Give us a call today!
