Frequently Asked Questions

TN Underground Cabling is a nationwide contracting company that provides turnkey underground construction services. Our crews are dispatched from throughout the country. All contracting partners meet a stringent vetting and approval process before they are authorized to work for our company. 

One of the many benefits of trenchless technology (Directional Drilling) is that its impact to the surrounding area is very minimal. However, there are times when trenching is preferred method and as a result trench lines will need to be backfilled, compacted and restoration of surface areas such as lawns, wild grass, concrete, asphalt. Your project coordinator from us will review these costs and where possible provide you with options to reduce restoration costs to you the customer.

TN Underground Cabling is much more than a underground directional drilling and trenching company, we can provide you with assistance in the areas of project consulting, engineering, project management, logistics, equipment, and in sourcing materials (i.e. HDPE, steel, ductile iron, PVC, cable vaults, pull boxes, etc.). Our services are totally scalable, so we can be a component of your project plan or if you would like, we can turnkey your entire project.

We can conduct directional boring and trenching operations in warm or cold weather. Cold and snow weather does pose unique challenges as it relates to 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.

We can perform rock drilling operations by using larger and more powerful equipment to accomplish the project. However, due to the nature of rock drilling, the larger specialized equipment and maintenance costs, drilliing in rocky or solid rock is more costly than in less dense surfaces such as soil, clay, sand, and gravel. All we quote address the matter of rock boring and your Project Coordinator will work with you should it be determined that rock boring may be required.

We provide affordable and reliable services. Often times there are additional costs in addition to actual boring or trenching activities. There are times when “open cuts” must be made in roadways but these costs will be identified and calculated into our quote. When you receive a quote from us, it is a complete quote.
