G&H using GPS to install drain tile

G&H Trucking & Excavating, Inc. is now installing drainage tile using GPS technology.

Recently, they added a self-propelled tile plow with GPS technology to their list of equipment, used for installing farm drainage tile up to 12 inches. The GPS technology also allows the tile to be mapped out for future reference.

Other excavating services include basement excavation, grading, bulldozing, driveways, site preparation, demolition, ditch cleaning, fence line removal, sewer and water lateral installation and perc tests. They also provide hydro-excavating and jetting services that include slot trenching, exposing utilities, cleaning sewer mains, vacuuming out manure pits, and sand settling lanes.

Owner Gerald Heus started the business in 1992 with a tractor backhoe and a single-axle dump truck. Since then, his two sons, Eric Heus and Neal Heus, along with daughter Tina Ziebell have joined the company to make it what it is today. They provide excavating and trucking services to the surrounding area.

“No matter the size of the project we will provide the highest quality service at a fair price,” Gerald said. “We will complete the project to your satisfaction.” Visit the Web site at www.ghexcavating.comfor more information or to request a free quote.

MSHBA pushes American dream

For the second year in a row, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker proclaimed April as “New Homes Month” to highlight the economic impact of construction-related jobs on the economy.

To celebrate New Homes Month, Mid-Shores Home Builders Association (MSHBA) worked in conjunction with the Wisconsin Builders Association (WBA) to promote the benefits of building a new home. Find the “Top Ten Reasons to Build a New Home” at www.MidShoresHomeBuilders.comor at the WBA’s new web domain, www.HomeSweetNewHome.com.

“Owning a house is invaluable to the family who calls it home,” Governor Walker said. “These homes provide stability and a safe haven, but are also a huge boost to the economy. The construction of a new home supports three full-time, family supporting jobs, and the economic impact of that home’s construction is felt throughout the community and the state.”

For every 1,000 new homes built, an average of $117 million in household income and $15.2 million in tax revenue for Wisconsin schools, roads, and communities is generated. Construction jobs in Wisconsin have been growing at a fast pace. The state ranked 11th highest in the number of construction jobs gained from September 2012 to September 2013.

Throughout April, MSHBA, WBA and 22 other associations statewide conducted a consumer education campaign on Facebook highlighting five main themes—Healthy Living, Peace of Mind, Social Entertaining, Wise Investment, and Personal Achievement. To follow the weekly consumer education updates, simply “like” MSHBA’s Facebook page at www.tinyurl.com/lacyoox.

Mid-Shores Home Builders Association is a trade organization made up of dedicated professionals who provide excellence in housing through education and innovation for the betterment of members and local communities. It has successfully served the industry since 1998.
