Houston Excavating and Demolition

A Family Owned Kansas City Company

Our Story

Owner Lance Houston started with a vision. At the time he was working as a contractor on small earthwork and landscaping projects. From the start, he made it his mission to do the very best work on any project, large or small. His vision was to elevate to the best in his field. This was over three decades ago, but the same vision motivates Houston Excavation and Demolition today. Lance is happy to say that to this day, he personally oversees every project taken on by his family-owned business in Kansas City, Missouri. While the size of the company and the projects have grown, Lance has never lost sight of his vision.

Over the years, Houston Excavation and Demolition built a positive reputation based on the best possible service. The Kansas City-based, family-owned business has grown on the principle that we have to earn the client’s trust. While we have grown to employ over sixteen dedicated staff members we are absolutely committed to providing the best excavation and demolition services in Kansas City– along with customer service that has a family touch.

Today we continue offer that same level of service at great prices. Owning our own large equipment means that we are able to pass savings on to the client.
