A b o u t  u s

Headquartered in Urbana, Ohio, McKeever’s Excavating has been West Central Ohio’s preferred source of first-rate construction services since 1973.

No matter if the project at hand is residential, commercial, or government/municipal, we stand behind our commitment to execute only the highest-quality work. The McKeever’s team remains on site to personally oversee all processes from the initial quote to final installation.

McKeever’s specializes in excavation, materials hauling, septic tank installation and maintenance, portable sanitation amenities, snow removal, and hydroseeding.

With an in-house team of expert civil engineers and a 10-truck fleet including a 4,500-gallon septic tanker equipped with 300 feet of hose, you’d be hard pressed to find a challenge we’re not capable of matching.
