The knowledge, skill and experience of Rays Electricals’ drilling crew plays a crucial role in our success since the action of directional boring takes place underground and out of sight. This requires that the operator has complete information about existing utilities so that he can plan the best bore path and avoid damaging existing utilities.
Our team is experienced in using safe practices of pot holing to expose any utility crossings so that we can visually see the depth. We incorporate the use of hydro-excavation and also use utility locating equipment to maximize our ability to know where the existing utilities are located for our bore path.
