“Video of our sub-contractor blasting ledge from our customers building lot in Northampton, MA in order to make room for a sub-surface foundation. The contractor bore explosives into the ledge in order to break the ledge into rock. The rubble was loaded by an excavator into a dump truck and removed from the site. The lot had expansive views of the valley making the expensive process worth it. In most cases the costs make the lot unusable. Costs start at $5,000 and quickly escalate to $40,000 and up”.
