When Is Drain Excavation Necessary? 

Drain excavation can become necessary when there is a problem with your home’s drain or the larger nexus of your region’s drainage system. Usually, you’d get some clear warning signs that your drain needs to be excavated. Here are the signs to look out for –

  • Blocked or clogged drains 
  • Water draining very slowly or require multiple flushes to be drained 
  • The foul odor of sewage being emitted from toilets and sinks 
  • Vegetation growing indoors

If you’re looking for contractors in Seattle, look no further than Aces Four Enterprises LLC. We provide a full range of drainage services, including excavation, at affordable rates.

4 Factors To Know Whether Drain Excavation Is Required 

Professionals often consider some factors to know whether drain excavation is required. Here are some of the things that they consider before starting a new project 

Pipe material

Regardless of what pipe materials are used to make your drainage system, it will sustain some damage over the years. Usually, it is corrosion that causes the pipe to wear away. The material could be plastic, metal, and concrete, and the age of each material differs. The technician would inspect the material of the pipes and gauge whether excavation is needed to fix the drainage issue. Call Aces Four to have your drainage system inspected in Seattle today. We also listen to emergency calls. 

Soil Condition

Below average condition of soil can shift the sewer line. If this happens, the professionals would have to excavate the drain to make the required amends. For any repairs to happen using the no-digs method, your yard’s soil needs to be in good condition. 

The Severity Of The Blockage

Blockages of the minor scale are easy to fix and don’t require much groundwork to repair. However, if the drain is blocked in more than one spot, or if there is a severe blockage, methods like breaking it up or pushing it through might be futile. Additionally, the pipes may have suffered corrosion, which would make it imperative to replace the entire section. 

Contact Aces Four now to learn whether excavation is required to repair your home’s drainage in Seattle. We would inspect your home’s drain and, based on our findings, advise you on the ideal solution to the problem at hand. If we believe that excavation is indeed necessary, we will provide you with a free estimate on the project and begin the work as soon as an agreement is reached between us. Contact us now to get started. 

Tree Roots

Tree roots can cause drainage issues as well. This problem usually occurs when you have a huge tree on your lawn, the roots of which begin to grow within the sewer line, causing it to block it. If the roots get too far, the technicians would have no choice but to excavate the drains and remove the roots to repair the system. The issue may not be visible to you, so if you’re unsure whether it is tree roots or any other landscaping problem causing the drain issues, it’s best to hire a technician to have it inspected. If you live in Seattle, call Aces Four Enterprises LLC for inspection. 

How Much Does It Cost To Put In A Drain?

If you want to replace your drainage system due to irreparable issues, it’s important to think of the costs before you hire contractors for the job. The project’s cost would depend upon the drain system you choose to replace the existing one. French drains cost between $1,000 and $10,000 per 100 linear feet, while trench or channel drains cost between $3,000 – and $9,000 per 100 linear feet. You would have to pay about $200 – $2,000 per downspout for underground downspouts, while for concrete catch basins, prepare to spend anything between $2,000 – $5,000 per basin. 

This is apart from what your contractor may charge a service fee. Before hiring a contractor, ask for a project estimate and get it in writing.

It was a pleasure to do business with you. Over the phone, Tracy was very nice, honest, helpful, and efficient. Your crew who came to fix the problem was a godsend because I had a tenant moving in that day. If I even need anything further done, I will definitely use your company. I was very impressed.

Thank you for coming out and sending us the estimates promptly. I appreciate your professionalism in every interaction we had - when I made the initial inquiry phone call, the person who received my call treated me very nicely and she also notified me immediately when a scheduling phone call needed to be postponed. On the day of estimate you notified me the exact timing of your arrival. All these things that seem to be small matter but I appreciate how you treat your customers.

Side-sewer hookup and septic decommissioning; the crew was focused on doing the job right. Their initial timeline was optimistic and project took 3 times longer than originally planned due to some issues that couldn't of been foreseen; regardless they knew what they needed to do and got the project done. Their estimate and final bill (which were on par with each other) were for the Project as a whole, minus permits and hookup fees, so there wasn't an additional charge for the extra time needed to complete the project. Aces Four is top on my list to hire again for a future project.

I highly recommend Aces Four, they are the most ethical and honest plumbing company I have found. Very good communication and they are real plumbers that know how to get the job done right. I had a bad experience with another plumbing company that charged me $1,900 to remove roots from my main sewer line, luckily I found Aces Four and I am so happy I did. Aces Four told me they could remove the roots for a 1 or 2 hour maximum charge which was about 80% cheaper than the first terrible company that tried to scam me. It's so hard to find an honest plumbing company, I'm so happy I found Aces Four, I will continue to work with Aces Four in the future and refer them to everyone I know.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ACES 4 - Our plumbing flooded yesterday afternoon - lower floor flooding the entire laundry room and out into our garage - garage was full of packed moving boxes as we are moving in just over a week - I called Aces 4 immediately - Tracy Middlebrook let us know what to do in the interim and had Jessie out here before 10 this morning - all better - we got everything cleaned up and back to packing for our move - I can't recommend Aces 4 enough.

Hi Tracy, Please thank the Aces Four team for great job on our sewer line.


What a great crew, from the moment we got the quote to the time the last of our rockery was put back into place after a repair was made and a side sewer cleanout installed. It's a family owned business, too! Special thanks to Mike (camera), Jerry (liner) and Yung (ran the project and the cat). We couldn't be more pleased.

I have been practicing Real Estate for close to 30 years. I have a very short list of vendors that I refer my homeowners to: Aces Four is at the top of the list because you can TRUST them. If you are experiencing any sewer or drainage issues, call Aces Four. They are very knowledgeable, fast, and very nice.

– Linda, Seattle Realtor

Your employees doing the sewer repair have been great. They are courteous, as clean as possible, and keep me informed of what is happening. This is a project that we didn't ask for, but the quality of the Aces Four people working on our sewer repair has made it so much better for us. You have an excellent crew!

– Deborah in Greenlake, Seattle, WA

Aces Four did a great job here. We are really happy with their work. They worked with us to be sure everything was being done as we hoped. They also took great care in the rebuilding of the rock wall and the cleanup effort. We appreciate their workmanship.
