Why Directional Drilling?

When businesses or homeowners need to extend their existing utilities or install electrical conduit through heavily congested areas, horizontal directional drilling is usually their best option. Referred to as “trenchless technology”, HDD drilling utilizes special machines that install underground utilities without impacting the surface area or disrupting traffic flow. Once crews have cleaned up the work location, it will look like they were never there!

We can handle a particular component of the project or we can turnkey the entire project for you. Working with We-Bore-It is like having your own ON-DEMAND underground construction department!

No project is too tough for our crews!

Using trenchless technologies, our drilling experts can circumvent the most challenging of environments. We’re known for boring in areas where others say they cannot! We bore through rock, concrete, sand, clay, bluffs, and more.

Special challenges include:

  • River Crossings

    River boring presents a host of challenges but nothing that we have not had prior experience dealing with successfully. Although We-Bore-It is not an engineering firm, we can consult and work with civil engineers and government agencies as part of your team. Planning a waterway crossing can be time-consuming and having a team of people experienced in underground construction and the use of directional boring technologies is essential.

    Our company was designed from the ground up to work with our customers from the planning stage all the way through execution of the work and post construction activities. It may help to think of us as an on-demand construction team that you can turn to when you need an affordable, reliable and proven solution.

  • Cold Weather

    Yes, we can bore in cold and snow weather. However, it does pose unique challenges concerning the identification of underground utilities and frost lines. Severely cold weather can prohibit (delay) operations but in most cases we deal mostly with additional time to transport and startup. Site preparation times may take longer and full restoration of frozen surface areas sometimes will require a follow up site visit in the spring. READ MORE ABOUT WINTER CONSTRUCTION

Directional Boring vs. Trenching

When should directional boring be used instead of trenching?

Directional boring (horizontal drilling) is a very efficient method of getting into an area, setting up and commencing operations. Open trenching, depending on depth and local ordinances, can require additional labor, planning, supervision, safety precautions, and restoration.

Urban areas such as water crossings, high traffic areas, pedestrian traffic, railroad spurs, and airports are ideal for directional drilling. Rural areas with low vehicle and pedestrian traffic tend to be better suited for open trenching.

Your We-Bore-It Project Coordinator will review your project with you before and after performing a site survey to determine what options are available. The coordinator will also review restoration costs and, where possible, provide you with options to reduce them.
