London's Leading Percussion Drilling Company

Percussion drilling offered to building companies looking to remove tough earth and rocks with ease across London.

Tough soil is hard to break through and often halts work on a building site while you are trying to work out how to solve the problem. Rocks and boulders getting in the way of laying foundations or drilling deeper into the earth using conventional methods is frustrating and means that you will have to get specialist equipment in that may or may not work. With percussion drilling, we offer a tried and tested method to quickly and efficiently get rid of stone obstacles, drilling right down through them to free up space beneath the soil. Percussion drilling works through stiff clays, sandstone, gravel, sand and silt with ease, used up to a depth of 25 metres for the best results.

There are a range of benefits to having percussion drilling carried out at your London building or construction site, including:

  • Percussion drilling will be able to handle most ground conditions
  • Unlike other drilling methods, percussion drilling is able to remove boulders and break hard rock formations effectively and quickly
  • Percussion drilling is able to drill further into the water table than dug wells, even being able to drill past one water table and into another
  • Percussion drilling can drill hundreds of feet deep

Percussion drilling is the perfect solution for tough soils that need some specialist equipment to break through, utilising manual labour or a small engine to get the very best results. It is easy to transport and simple to set up, taking a little effort to drill through rocks and boulders, clearing the way for continued building work. Working well in all conditions, percussion drilling is the perfect solution to building woes, especially when work has stopped due to heavy soil or large rocks.
