Private Utility Locating

Private Utility Locating is essential to construction projects involving underground digging or excavation work. Universal Services recognizes the importance of identifying where your private utilities are within your property to allow for safe excavation as well as preventing loss of a service. Universal employs a team of experts that solely focus on private locating to ensure safety and timely installation.

Vacuum (Hydro) Excavation

We provide excavation services in the safest and most efficient way possible: Hydro Excavation with our custom Hydrovac trucks. 

Hard Surface Restoration

With concrete, nothing contributes more to the overall quality and longevity of the concrete than the subgrade / base preparation. 

Soft Surface Restoration

Our technicians are trained to provide complete and thorough restoration while minimizing disruption and cost.
