Our Philosophy


Committment to Excellence

We live and work in the same communities that our customers and partners do. It's important to us to deliver the excavation excellence that they do and should expect. Every project. Every day.


Decades of Experience

Many of our employees have been with us since the company was founded in 1974. They have seen and done it all, bringing decades of experience and commitment to every excavating project we do.

Quality in All Aspects

You can't deliver a quality project unless every person and every piece of equipment is held to the highest standard. At Drenckhahn Excavating, we are committed to quality so that you get the best in every project.


Attention to Detail

Every excavating project we do is custom and personal to you. Our experienced team of workers and machine operators are committed to your project from design to completion and pay attention the tiniest detail that might affect the cost, quality, safety, schedule, or outcome of your excavation project.
