Driveway Grading

Driveways should have the proper slope for water drainage and for safety of  you and your family. Professional driveway grading does both and is a crucial first step in any residential or commercial driveway project.

When we prepare land for asphalt driveway or concrete driveway, we start by ensuring that the terrain is solid, stable, and angled appropriately for driving and parking. Then, we adjust the slope of the land to ensure that water will divert away from the property rather than pooling in uneven portions of the land.

Parking Lot Grading

Parking lots require careful grading to provide water drainage and ensure stability through years of driving and parking. During our parking lot grading services, we use bulldozers and motor graders to create a flat foundation that:

  • Allows for easy driving and reliable parking
  • Diverts water away from buildings
  • Prevents drainage issues
  • Meets ADA compliance requirements

Our San Jose crew is well-versed in the local codes and municipal requirements to prepare for parking lot paving.

Site Development

Evaluating and adjusting the land gradient is essential in preparing any construction site. When a construction site’s slope is too steep, it can allow for fast, uncontained water drainage, eroding the soil and negatively impacting the foundation’s durability.

You can trust our EARTHTEK Grading & Paving crew to prepare your construction site adequately for building.

Rough Grading

Rough grading is the first stage of the land grading process. During this step, we use heavy machinery to shift dirt, rocks, gravel, and other earth materials to create the proper slope for your construction project.

Final Grading

After completing rough grading, our team will move to final grading, which involves fine-tuning the site using more precise machinery and techniques. We’ll eliminate any contours in the land and create a smooth, even finish.

Cut & Fill

When preparing land for roadways, buildings, or railways, we’ll cut and fill to adjust the ground elevation and slope to the project requirements. We also can add and remove topsoil during our standard grading process to level uneven ground.
