Our Services


Dave did a new septic system for us and some other work that we added, which he just rolled with. Not only was he there when he said he would be, he’s personable and very easy to work with! We wanted to keep our business local and we are incredibly pleased with the job he did. We would absolutely recommend Butler Excavating to anyone! Thank you Dave for a job well done!
