Road and Driveway Construction Needs a Strong Foundation

The most crucial component of a road and driveway installation is a well-built and robust foundation or base.

The driveway's ability to withstand heavy loads, continuous vehicle traffic, and various environmental stresses over time depends on its foundation. Additionally, it aids in avoiding frequent problems like cracking, settling, and uneven surfaces, which can be expensive to fix. Any construction project must include a base because its proper preparation and construction are essential to ensuring the longevity and durability of the road or driveway.

Our team is dedicated to providing top-notch craftsmanship to guarantee that your driveway withstands the test of time because they recognize the importance of a strong foundation. Whether you select an asphalt driveway or a concrete driveway, our top priority is to give you a durable surface that meets your needs and goes above and beyond what you expect.

Whatever your project specifications are, we're here to help you get a well-built driveway that increases the value of your property and improves its overall appearance and appeal.

As land management experts, we pull out all the stops to complete a successful road and driveway installation project. No matter what your specifications are, we do our utmost to provide the highest quality work that exceeds your expectations.

Our approach to road and driveway installation is similar to house pad construction. Upon a complete evaluation of your location, our experts will set a plan for the project to ensure that the land is cleared and adequately leveled.

• A comprehensive inspection of the site
Site preparation
• Thorough land clearing
• Land grading
• Proper drainage system
• Erosion control

Dirt Road Leveling

At Shilling Excavation, one of our important jobs is dirt road leveling. In our over three decades of dirt road maintenance experience, we always make sure to complete the following objectives:
• Sufficient water flow control around the dirt road
• Elimination of all obstructions on the road
• Proper dirt road leveling

Water Flow

When you want to maintain your dirt road properly, remember that water (or any of its form – ice, snow, sleet) is not your friend. Our experts know the techniques to properly slope the road and allow for proper water drainage and prevent it from flowing back onto the dirt road.


When there are any obstacles that you need off the road to make the space open and functional again, call us. We have a top-of-the-line fleet operated by our experienced team. We do all land clearing work safely, effectively, and promptly.


When it comes to efficient dirt road leveling, it’s all about equipment and know-how. Depending on your needs, our experienced team knows what leveling solutions to apply for your dirt road.

Gravel Road Construction

A Great and Functional Gravel Road Starts with Proper Construction

Don’t settle for a hastily constructed or poorly maintained gravel road. With our expert and professional services, you can have a beautiful and functional gravel road for your property.

We know a well-built gravel road can offer an affordable and long-lasting option for access paths, rural roads, and driveways. With our knowledge, we create a durable, low-maintenance gravel road that withstands heavy traffic and inclement weather by considering proper drainage, gravel thickness, and compaction.

Don't cut corners when it comes to your gravel road's quality. Instead, put your trust in our team to give you a dependable surface that improves the usability and appeal of your property. We are here to assist you in building a gravel road that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations, no matter what they may be.

Full Understanding of Your Vision

Before we begin any gravel road installation, we’ll make sure to understand your needs for it. 

Farming vehicles with massive horsepower and size, for instance, are not suitable on gravel roadways if the surface is not strong enough.

We’ll carefully analyze your needs and the frequency of traffic the road will get so that we can plan your gravel road installation appropriately.

Call us today to discuss your gravel road construction needs and get your free estimate. Do not hesitate. Now is your time to start improving your propery.

Creating a Strong Foundation

A strong and well-built foundation is crucial to any construction project – whether it’s residential, commercial, roads, or driveway construction.

At Shilling Excavation, our expert contractors will ensure that you have a strong and leveled sub-grade to build your road or driveway on.

If your property has unavoidable weaker or wet soil, we’ll do the appropriate excavation process to replace it. 

If the roadway is too wide, we’ll bring in the right materials to raise it. 

Whatever challenges or issues your gravel road construction project may present, our expertise and experience allow us to come up with solutions that work.

Choosing the Right Materials

We have the highest quality gravel to use for your project. Whether it’s for base material or surface use, you’re getting the top-grade materials when you partner with us.

Building It Right

This may seem like a simple and straightforward step. However, only experienced gravel road contractors know how to start the project and finish it right.

With our tried-and-tested techniques and know-how, we’ll provide you with a functional and cost-effective and easily maintained gravel road – and not a weak type that needs frequent and costly repairs.

Efficient Drainage Is a Must

The success of a gravel driveway installation depends on efficient drainage. Standing or excess water on the surface or adjacent to the road can negatively impact the installation.

Roads and driveways that can properly channel water out of the surface allow for easier and less costly maintenance. Our gravel driveway contractors have all the means necessary to ensure proper drainage.

Top-quality gravel selections. Tried and true construction techniques. Valuable experience. All our gravel road and driveway installation projects prevent water damage.

Roadway Maintenance

Whether you need soil stabilization or land grading services, our highway maintenance services ensure that your road or driveway is functioning at its peak.

Correct highway maintenance techniques and the use of cutting-edge equipment lead to an efficient road and driveway. That’s why your maintenance needs are best left to the professionals at Shilling Excavation.
