Top 10 kinds of commercial/residential developers’ jobs by Dicarlo

Sewer and water utilities are always installed before gas, electric, and foundations. Frequently, a gas company, electric company, or other contractors will damage sewer & water infrastructure. The original sewer & water installer will not categorize these damages under warranty. DiCarlo will complete any work that needs attention alongside the developer to enable closing on homes as soon as possible.

1.  Manholes


-------------------------------------------------------


Manhole frames, adjustment rings, and barrel sections frequently get pushed off, cracked, or are simply not to the proper grade. Whether it is a sanitary, storm, or water manhole, we are highly experienced with all of these structures. Dicarlo construction uses the proper petroleum sealants and chimney seals to make sure the repairs are done correctly, clean, and quickly. We finish by making sure the manhole is fully repaired, to grade, and benches & inverts are cleaned.

-------------------------------------------------------


2.  Water Services and B-boxes


-------------------------------------------------------


Dicarlo construction can repair all copper/ round way related issues. If sod is already laid, we always cut sod by shovel, excavate down by hand when possible, and restore sod back in place for a clean finish. There is no need for sod replacement. 

It is very common for the Buffalo box (b-box) to be pushed off, broken, or not to grade, also a similar situation to valve boxes. When this occurs, it causes the valve to be un-key able. We quickly fix these problems with very minimal disturbance to the grass to make sure the valve is key able without a struggle.

Before:  Lowering/ Repairing water service (Excavated by hand)

After:  Same sod used to save our customers the additional cost of landscaping

3.  Inlet Filter Protection


-------------------------------------------------------

Dicarlo construction is able to keep our prices competitive & cannot be beaten on inlet filter baskets. We obtain our filters at discounted prices from the leading manufacturer. Our services include installation, maintenance, and fabric replacement.



-------------------------------------------------------


4.  Fire Hydrants


-------------------------------------------------------


Dicarlo construction will raise, lower, or rotate hydrants to comply with the municipality code. However, valve boxes for these fire hydrants frequently get pushed off or broken during excavation and building. Upon repairing any of these problems, Di Carlo Construction greases and lubricates internal stems, caps, and paints the hydrant the desired color to satisfy the municipalities’ expectations.

5.  Retention & Detention Ponds


-------------------------------------------------------


Di Carlo Construction repairs flared-end section pipe in retention and detention ponds, excavates and grades land for positive water flow into ponds, and installs fabric to restrict any vegetation to grow, followed by rip-rap (large rock) for effective filtration. 



-------------------------------------------------------


6.  Landscaping/Settlements


-------------------------------------------------------

Repair settlements of any ground disturbances. Backfill with pulverized dirt, finished with topsoil & sod.


-------------------------------------------------------


7 & 8.  Drain Tiles, Underdrains, Sump Pump & Down Spout Connections


-------------------------------------------------------

Dicarlo construction will install under drain to eliminate any sump or down spout water discharge.

Drain tiles are needed when storm water is ponding in a low area & the water has no escape route. Drain tile is typically a 4”-8” perforated pipe with bedding and cover of ¾” wash gravel to absorb the water like a sponge. The pipe is pitched at the correct percentage needed to allow the water to flow into a storm structure, dry well, or a French drain. We excavate our drain tile trenches by hand, always laying down plywood as the first step. We save the dirt & sod on top of plywood, keeping the job site clean while being able to salvage the original sod.
