There are sewer and water lines running all over the place just under our feet. Sewer lines carry the waste away from our homes and businesses, while water lines provide us with a constant supply of clean water. When they’re working, we don’t give them a second thought, but when they’re not working properly they can be a big hassle. Older, established cities that are experiencing growth – such as Clifton Park, Colonie, Albany, Ballston and Saratoga Springs – are creating a double boom for sewer and water line companies in the area, thanks to a mix of repairs to existing lines and installation of new ones.

Sewer and water line installation and repair takes careful planning to ensure all local and state guidelines and rules are followed. When sewer and water lines aren’t installed properly, they risk breaking due to shifting ground and frost. Thanks to our experience here at Colonial Excavating, we can plan and carry out all your residential and commercial water line repairs.

 Different Types of Sewer and Water Line Projects

Due to the different skills, experience and equipment required for various types of sewer and water line work, not every contractor can handle it all. Here at Colonial Excavating, we can take care of each type of project and ensure safe, high-quality work every time:

  • New Installations: We are equipped to handle even the largest new sewer and water line installations. Our equipment can tackle trenching and backfilling for regular residential properties as well as larger commercial properties. When it’s time to connect to the city water sewer and water lines, we’ll work with the local authorities to ensure proper connection and verification.
  • Line Repairs: As your residential and commercial sewer and water lines get old, they can start to leak. If you are having problems with your lines and need to plan repairs, give us a call. We have experience digging down to existing sewer and water lines without damaging them. Less experienced sewer and water line repair companies can have difficulty locating leaks and carefully digging to expose and repair the lines.
  • Line Replacements: If your sewer and water lines suffer repeated leaks, then it’s time to replace the whole system. This is more complicated than installing new lines because the old ones need to be removed. In most cases, your property is without water and drainage during the line replacements, which is why choosing a quick and reliable repair contractor like Colonial Excavating makes sense.
  • Emergency Repairs: When a sewer or water line leak occurs, it is at the very least a hassle and in some cases can be a major concern. Flooding of your property in winter can cause dangerous slippery conditions, and allows water to enter your home or commercial building. Leaking sewage can cause pollution and health concerns. We offer 24/7 emergency sewer and water line repairs to give you peace of mind.

We want our customers in the capitol region – including Clifton Park, Colonie, Albany, Ballston and Saratoga Springs – to call on us for all their sewer and water line needs. Before every job, we’ll provide a free detailed quote so you’re clear on the work to be done.

Thanks to the effort we put into planning our sewer and water line installations and repairs, we get in, dig, place or repair the lines, and fill the trenches back in quickly and efficiently. We’ll get your sewage and water flowing again and let you get back to your life.
