Directional boring is the method of creating bores or underground trenches across land spans that are covered by natural and man-made structures. It uses as specialized machine to create holes underneath the ground without disrupting the existing structures on top. To illustrate simply, it is like prairie dogs creating tunnels below the earth’s surface. Only in this case, directional boring uses specialized equipment to maintain a predetermined distance, depth, and hole circumference.
Directional boring is useful in a number of situations. These include when you need to lay additional piping, water lines, utility lines, and other landscaping features without the digging through or destroying existing structures. Building contractors, utility companies, and construction companies have great use for companies offering directional boring services. For example, these services can be useful in instances when contractors meet installation challenges that prevent them from laying down pipelines or electrical wiring for utilities because there is already an existing concrete road or structure on top of the area where they need to work.
Drainage maintenance crews also need directional boring services when they want to lay additional sewage pipes without doing deep excavation. Likewise, electrical workers use directional boring services when they add conduit lines across properties and structures for added power supply.
For homeowners, directional drilling is a common method used when adding water pipe lines or electric conduits for automatic sprinkler system or outdoor landscape lighting, as work can be completed without having to touch any of the existing structures in place.
Directional boring is first and foremost, a cost-effective method of providing additional structure such as underground utilities and water lines. If you use the traditional method of digging and trenching, you may need to spend additional money and time refurbishing or re-constructing existing structures that are destroyed or damaged during the installation process. With directional boring, everything on top will be left undisturbed and the only work done is beneath the soil.
For large operations, directional boring is beneficial, as it does not disrupt the flow of traffic. This is especially important in urban areas or busy work zones. It also has lesser environmental impact as the work is done quietly underground, without the usual dust and dirt that accompanies other digging methods. Work can also be accomplished in a shorter period of time, giving both the contractors and owners more time to tend to other important matters.
Another benefit of directional boring is the extended capabilities this method offers. With directional boring equipment, longer and deeper installation is possible without the need of creating access pits. It also has directional flexibility that will allow the operator to dig in any direction required for the job.
