How long does it take to build a house? The short answer is, “it depends!”
On the average, it takes less than three months to build a basic house in New Hampshire – from clearing the lot to paving the driveway. Unfortunately, home construction projects often run over-time and over-budget due to inefficiencies in scheduling the subcontractors. A key area to look for inefficiencies is in the site development for house lots.
From beginning to end. Aside from the builder, the excavation contractor in a home construction project is the only contractor who is involved from beginning to end. Consider all of these steps in site development:
- Lot Clearing
- Road Grading and Site Drainage
- Stump Removal
- Ledge Removal
- Foundation Excavation
- Foundation Drain
- Septic System / Sewer Installation
- Utility Trenching – Electrical, Waterline installation
- Backfilling Foundation
- Driveway Base Prep
- Driveway Paving
- Final Grading / Loam and Hydroseeding
Doesn’t it make sense to hire an excavation contractor for your home construction project that can provide all of these services? Look no further than Steve Sarette and Son Excavation! For the past 30 years we have been servicing home builders and land developers with all the excavation services they need to complete their projects in a timely fashion.
What you need, when you need it. We have the flexibility to change out crews and equipment within a few days. Finding ledge is never a nice surprise when building a home; however, it doesn’t need to stall your project. Sarette Excavation’s ledge removal services are immediately available to keep the project moving forward. We are New Hampshire licensed septic installers, and also maintain active drain layers licenses. We have our own sand and gravel pit with state-spec landscape materials for road grading and leach field construction.
Another inefficiency factor in site development for house lots is downtime. Our equipment is meticulously maintained, and if a piece of our equipment should break, we can quickly swap it out with another one.
Steve Sarette & Son Excavation is known locally for their efficiency and planning in completing a house lot from start to finish. A builder will not have to wait for us – we will be waiting for the builder. On an average size house lot, the crew at Sarette Excavation will have the lot ready to build within 4 – 6 days. The lot will be complete, clean and to sub-grade. The only thing left to do is build the house. Upon completion of building the house Sarette Excavation returns to put the final touches on the lot such as spreading screened loam and grading the lot to completion.
It’s in everybody’s best interest – and certainly possible – to complete a home building project within three months or less! Let Sarette Excavation partner with you from beginning to end!
