Utility Locate Markings

People always ask what the markings indicate on the ground when Locator's come out to homeowners properties.  Always call your locates, even if you are drilling 1 or 2 holes make sure you take the time to call your locates.  Also Master Post Hole, will take care of your locates!  Always have the locates in the excavators' name always!

Fence Post Holes and deck pier footings!

People often ask about building permits for fence installation and deck installation.  Also we are not required to have a permit for fence post installation.  Some deck pier footings require a building inspector.  It all depends on you deck plan.  We are very familiar with building inspectors. 

Please read below.  Refer to your local city hall for more information!  

Whatprojects do NOT require a building permit?A building permit is not required for a detached accessory structure (gazebo, tool shed, etc.

Who is responsible to have the locates done for all underground utilities?

You should always have the contractor call the locates in!   You don't want to take the responsibility of someone hitting a gas, hydro, cable or bell line. The contractor is responsible if they are drilling your holes on your property. 

Don't let them talk you into calling the locates in yourself.  No, the responsibility is the contractor who is drilling your holes.

They are able to ask for a priority and often locates can be obtained in 3 working days.  Sometimes during peak season it may take up to 5 working days.
