“It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Fawcett J. Excavating Ltd. and its owner, Josh Fawcett.

I am a general contractor engaged primarily in residential projects. Over the past few years I have hired Fawcett J. Excavating Ltd. on numerous occasions to provide me with utility trenching, drains, backfills, heavy equipment work etc. I have always been impressed with the quality of workmanship and the attention that is paid to detail. Josh has an excellent grasp of what is required to get the job done and the tools (that he maintains in top condition) to do so. Not only is Josh professional, he is personable. He interacts well with other trades, owners and inspectors on site. He is truly dedicated to delivering exceptional service from start to finish.

I can say without reservation, that I highly recommend Josh Fawcett and his company for any excavation or heavy equipment work. I look forward to continue working with Josh on future projects.”

“Five years ago, my husband and I began construction of our new home in the City of Kawartha Lakes.  We employed several local businesses throughout the process; Fawcett J. Excavating being one of them.  Our history, as satisfied customers, began about 4 years ago when I was first very impressed with the quality of work and skill Josh Fawcett displayed creating an armour stone shoreline, just prior to forming his own company.

Our property required a great deal of excavating and landscaping and I used three different companies in the process.  Fawcett J. Excavating has provided us with outstanding services since the company was formed in 2010.  One of these services included very specific excavation work required for one of our outbuildings.  Specifications were made, by a qualified soil engineer, to create an engineered fill pad for a raft slab to be placed on.  The work was done professionally, on time and at a very reasonable cost.  Like most construction projects, this one was not without its issues.  I must say, however, I was very impressed with how calmly Josh dealt with adversity and continued to carry on until the job was done exactly right.

As well as excavation done on our property, we used Fawcett J. Excavating to do some landscaping.  A rock retaining wall, that forms the driveway down to our outbuilding, was done not only with a great deal of skill but also creativity.  An unexpected business trip made it impossible for me to be on site during some of the landscaping work.  Josh took the initiative to continue on with a just few email exchanges and the work was completed to my specifications.  Josh’s effective communication skills made this possible.

I have always appreciated Josh’s quick response to emails or voice mails as well as his respectful, courteous and professional manner.  Also, his staff has consistently made extra efforts to assist us in completing our projects on time and accurately.  Very impressive service and after service.

In my opinion, Fawcett J. Excavating, although a young company, provides excellent services as a result of such a high level of skill and attention to detail. I look forward to many more years of cooperation and a continued relationship with this company.   I appreciate the friendly and respectful business relationship I have with Josh and know I can always count on him for his knowledge and consistently excellent service.”

“We had decided it was defiantly time to reconfigure and revamp our over grown disaster of a back yard.  Our starting point was to call josh Fawcett to level the area to give a starting point. Josh was diligent in coming to our first meeting. He listened carefully and  Much to our surprise josh informed us that he did much more than just excavating, with a gleam in eye he proceeded to see a vision and gave us a visual that we couldn’t resist, including stone and deck work. So the job was his!!  he proceed with all his big equipment and within 5 days transformed our back yard into something stunning and magazine perfect. The stone work was spectacular  and the attention to detail over the top. We were away for the last two days of the project so when I walked into our finished yard, my comment was that it looked like it was competed and they took a large vacuum and perfected everything right down to the driveway. 2 years later we love it and enjoy it everyday!  We are now getting a quote on our front yard, can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve this time!!”
