How Michael & Son determines your estimate

  • We look at the size of your home. The size of your home and the number of plumbing appliances plays a big role in determining the size of the tank needed. Larger homes with more plumbing appliances typically need larger tanks—and the larger the tank, the higher the cost of the project.
  • We determine the type of system needed. Michael & Son has decades of experience recommending and installing the septic system that best fits your needs. The most common types of septic systems in Charlottesville include aerobic and anaerobic. Anaerobic systems typically cost less to install than more complex aerobic systems, however, they typically require more maintenance. Our team will walk you through your septic system options and help you choose the system that will keep the surrounding environment clean and your plumbing system safe.
  • We assess the soil conditions and any landscaping challenges. Excavation costs can vary from project to project and are determined by various factors such as soil composition, water table depth, etc. Our team will thoroughly assess your property's soil conditions to ensure fair pricing but also to plan out the least invasive excavation possible. Michael & Son has a variety of methods at our disposal for protecting your home's landscaping when installing a new septic tank.
