Unstable soil can lead to construction project delays, costly remediation, and angry customers. Your construction's success might depend on your selected erosion control company. So, don't assume any product will get the job done. Select a dust control company that has the right expertise and products to deliver the results you need.
We've outlined five essential questions you should ask before selecting a company specializing in erosion control and soil stabilization. Let's get started.
Why do you need an erosion control company?
Erosion control is an indispensable aspect of construction management—especially in areas vulnerable to runoff, weathering, and wind. The right erosion control company can help you manage these challenges and prevent costly delays with products that protect the environment while stabilizing and protecting your land.
Question 1: What is the pricing structure?
A cost comparison will help you understand if an erosion control company fits your budget and is a good value. Ask about their pricing model and what the cost includes. Does it cover the entirety of the product, or are there extra costs for special equipment or delivery fees? Be cautious of hidden fees or charges. A transparent pricing model is a positive sign of a company's integrity.
Question 2: What equipment do you need for your project?
Purchasing or renting extra equipment for applying soil stabilization products can influence your project's timeline, cost, and overall effectiveness. Inquire with the erosion control company about the specific machinery you'll need for the application, and then use that information to assess the time and money spent.
Question 3: How durable are their erosion control products?
No one wants to be constantly reapplying erosion and dust control products on terrain and ground surfaces. Consider the durability and longevity of the erosion prevention products being used. Ask the erosion control company about their product's expected life span for different weather conditions and geographic areas. Selecting cheaper, less durable options may cost more in the long run.
Question 4: Are the products environmentally friendly?
Environmental sustainability is paramount and costly fines can occur if the runoff from your land enters local waterways. Look for products that follow environmental regulations and are considered environmentally friendly. Ask if an erosion control company's products meet local regulations and inquire about its eco-friendly properties.
Question 5: Is the product a good match for the weather and geography of your project?
Not all erosion control solutions work equally well in different regional conditions and climates. Ask the company how their products will fare in the particular area you're working on—such as wildfire-prone areas, arid regions, or high-rainfall environments.
