Residential Work

We have the equipment to complete your project on time and to your satisfaction.  We have complete repair facilities to keep our equipment running and looking good.  But if there is a piece of equipment that we need and we don't own it, we turn to our extensive network of rental and purchase resources to get what we need so we can get your job done on time and to your satisfaction.

Although we perform 99% of our projects with our own manpower, we have relationships with a wide array of contractors who can work with us on areas of work that we do not self-perform (i.e.: asphalt paving, concrete curbs and gutters, directional boring, bore & jack, striping and signage, etc.)

We're proud to have a workforce personnel who are skilled and experienced in their fields.  Many of our employees have stayed with our company for many years.  We have an office staff that is ready and capable of handling the most complex paperwork.  When you call our office, you do not receive a recorded message.  We have folks on staff that can bid your job to your exact specifications.

Our construction employees receive ongoing safety training and periodic training on specialty topics like traffic control, HAZWOPER, MDOT and OSHA rules and regulations, septic issues, etc.  

We are a Drug Free Workplace, and all our employees are subject to random drug testing.  Many of our employees have obtained Federal Government Security Clearances to work on jobsites with security concerns.   We are proud of the level of expertise that our employees possess, and the commitment to quality workmanship that they show on a daily basis.  Burton Excavating is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Burton Excavating is proud to honor the service men and women of the United States of America. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do around the world.
