Tree and Plant Removal

Most plants in the path of the damaged pipeline will be destroyed during traditional sewer repair services in Tacoma, WA. If there are smaller plants that you wish to keep and replant, these should be removed and stored safely in an out-of-the-way location.

Dealing with Hardscaping

If the area to be dug up includes paved paths, water features, stonework or any other permanent hardscaping fixtures, these elements will likely be damaged as part of the excavation work if they can’t be moved. It’s a good idea to take pictures beforehand to aid in later restoration when the job is through.

Environmental Considerations

Excavation can expose large amounts of bare soil that may be tracked onto roadways or washed into creeks and streams. When tackling sewer line replacement in Tacoma, WA, our team always takes steps to prevent this and works as quickly as possible to avoid significant environmental impact.

Property Repair and Restoration
