Building a new home? Make sure your project is off to the right start with professional excavation. From demolition and site clearing to drainage control and driveway work, excavation contractors provide King Township, Tottenham, Vaughan, New Tecumseth, and other area residents with the needed services to prep and transform any property. At Smith Excavating, Grading & Septic Services, our excavation contractors provide all stages of site preparation to ensure a well-primed base for your building’s construction, as well as your septic system and hardscaping.


A solid foundation ensures a solid structure. When you’re building a new home, the foundation must be properly installed or else problems will arise for the whole structure. Improper foundation installation may cause sagging of floors, cracked walls, crooked windows and doors, and standing water under the home. Hire our professional excavation contractors in Tottenham and protect your new home from these potential foundation problems.

Silt Fencing for Sediment Control

During excavation and construction work, a lot of soil and debris can get moved around. Silt fencing is one way to temporarily control sediment churned up by excavation from entering streams, rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water. Storm water runoff is the most common way water is contaminated sediment. Our team maps out where the silt fencing should go on your site and professionally installs it around the perimeter.
