Subgrade and Gravel Services for Sidewalks and Buildings

A strong foundation is very important for a successful construction project. You should ensure the subgrade and gravel layers are strong enough to bear maximum loads. Having a strong base of concrete slabs improves the structural performance of a building. If you are planning for surface improvement strategies, Deford Contracting Inc. can help. We are your trusted subgrade and gravel service provider in Edmonton. We provide a wide range of services including excavation, paving and asphalt repairs. For over 50 years, we have been operating as a diversified construction company in Edmonton. You can count on us for earthworks, removal and demolition tasks. Our quick response and quality workmanship will ensure the timely completion of your project.

We undertake projects from residential, commercial and industrial clients. From highway up-gradation to municipal improvement tasks, we can do them all. We have Certificate of Recognition for providing a safe working environment on the project site. By performing routine internal and external auditing, we ensure avoiding potential risks and accidents. We follow all the mandatory guidelines laid down by the Alberta Construction Safety Association.


Where there is detail grading, there is usually granular preparation required. Our company has always had a subgrade and gravel operation as part of our excavation contracting expertise. Our subgrade and gravel crews complete subgrade preparation and detailed excavation for: 



  • Sidewalks

  • Buildings

  • Grade beams

  • Trenching

  • And more

We also provide subgrade services for any type of under slab preparation in Edmonton and surrounding areas. If any of these items require cement stabilization, this is also an option.

Cement Stabilization and Rubbelization for Subgrade Operations

Since our paving division has become more established, it has added a whole new dimension to the diversity of our company. DeFord Contracting Inc. has the ability to complete cement stabilization and rubbelization as part of the paving crew’s subgrade operations. Our subgrade and gravel division not only supports our excavation crews, but also works very closely with our paving crew. We feel that our subgrade and gravel crews have the ability to adapt to our excavation and our paving crews’ needs. With the subgrade and gravel crews being the middle man within our operations, we rely heavily on them for communication and often act as the primary crew on site for the jobs that we are the acting general contractor.
