Drilling & Blasting
Weber Construction has been involved with drilling, blasting and rock excavation for over 35 years. It is common when constructing logging roads in the Cascade Mountains to encounter solid rock outcrops within the road Right of Way. These outcrops often develop into rock pits to supply road ballast. Weber Construction, with its fleet of rock drills and experienced, capable operators and licensed blasters can deal efficiently with rock. When we find rock, we often view it as an opportunity rather than an obstacle.
Controlled blasting is a specialty with Weber Construction. Our experience includes solid rock excavation for hydroelectric powerhouse construction, boulder blasting in residential areas, pre-shearing (pre-splitting) for rock slope excavation on Federal Highways, and trenchline blasting.
If solid rock in encountered in your project, please remember to call Weber Construction.
