Water in basement. Got three estimates, went with JTB because owner showed up in person and was genuine. Got an estimate. But more importantly the explanation about the job was detailed and in terms that made sense, was a knowledgeable person who didn’t rush through the explanation and did a proper investigation before estimate, including the use of a drainage camera. Arrived on the day he said he would start and stayed with his estimate even though the job turned out to be very demanding. The the equipment he has is very well maintained, which later reflected him and the quality job he did for us.

Joe Buckles of JTB Enterprises is honest, hard working and methodical. As a contractor, I find it exceptionally difficult to find other contractors to do work for me. I attempted to contact more than 100 excavation contractors throughout the lower mainland. I received responses from 4. Most were trying to push cost added services, it was frustrating. When Joe contacted me back, he gave me an exact price, which he stuck to. When he arrived on site at our home, he was on time, friendly and listened to all of my concerns. Joe safely, methodically and in great time completed the excavation work and moved the soil to a different area of our yard, and the project was completed exactly as I had envisioned. The price was in our budget. I would not hesitate to recommend Joe to anyone needing excavation or landscaping and or trucking services.
We had several footings that needed to be dug for a shed for our motorhome. Joe got it done so quick that we had him dig some drainage ditches with the time left over in his minimum 4 hour rate.
Happy Customer
Joe followed our project from concrete pad demolition to final site preparation. He cared a great deal about our deadlines and appeared at a moments notice when needed. His connections to services and supplies were extremely valuable in our situation. Joe is an excellent operator who offers friendly service, competitive pricing and fair billing. We highly recommend him.
Carolyn Holt
We are extremely happy with the professional service and excellent work provided by Joe! He made 2 service calls to our home during our excavation process providing valuable advice as we attempted to figure out why our back yard was always flooding. Once the problem was uncovered (yuck!), Joe quickly and efficiently rectified the situation with the installation of our new system. (See photos)
The service was prompt & rates were very reasonable. We would definitely recommend Joe!
Diane Jacobs
Joe did a great job! We had some drainage problems that required working close to the house. He was very careful and completed the job without issue! I totally recommend Joe and would work with him again anytime!
Ken D.
We were very happy with the drainage work Joe did on our property. It was quite a large job and he finished within his quoted timeframe. He is a very meticulous, careful operator and it is clear that he knows what he is doing. We were impressed with the job he did and would definitely recommend him to anyone needing any excavation work done.

Joe did a great job fixing a major drainage issue at our home in maple ridge. Our crawlspace was flooded because our drainage had never been installed properly. Old homes are always full of surprises. He worked hard to get the job done even in the poring rain. I liked how careful he worked around all my plumbing and electrical lines, never rushed to get anything done but stayed very efficient with his time. His quote was accurate and fair and he was full of useful information for other projects around the house.

We've dealt with Joe a few times over the last decade. Always made sure he did the job right the first time. Great price, great guy, excellent job.
Diana Wood

The Unknown Boilermaker
Excellent operator, fast and efficient. Very pleased with quality of service. Would recommend his service to anyone needing excavation in tight and close areas near existing structures.
Norman Ireland
Very professional. Very meticulous. Well maintained equipment (which makes me happy to see). Couldn't be happier with the job done on my yard. would definitely recommend Joe for any of your excavating needs.
We had an acre of overgrown trees & rocks of all sizes; uneven ground; and old growth stumps. Joe’s talent (and patience), cleared & leveled our land. Not an easy task given the abundance of rocks & old stumps. His creativity using existing 1 ton+ rocks to build a majestic rock wall not only enhances the curb appeal of our home but also adds to the tiered levels he created utilizing uneven raw land. Using his bucket, he was able to help us preserve & transplant trees, huckleberries and shrubs. The before & after pics give testimony of the amazing work. He helped turn a wild piece of property into a beautiful Lamdscape. Truly a home of transformation.
Joe was amazing and thoroughly explained all aspects of the job and made recommendations, but was not forceful or pushy. He worked efficiently and far exceeded our expectation of what our yard could be.
Joe answered my Homestars request for a quote on a drainage problem that I was having by the garage. He came out and took a look at the site and the issue. Figured out the best solution and sent me a quote the next day. He did the work required and in addition ended up spreading the left over drain rock around the area. Left everything very nice and neat. It hasn't rained since he has done it but I have no doubt that it will work fine and I won't have water in my garage this winter. I would not hesitate to recommend Joe.
Joe I want to thank you so much. If you ever need a reference please feel free to give my email. We could not have accomplished as much as we did this year without you doing the machine work for us. We are incredibly grateful to have found you and appreciate your being here when you said you would and leaving place looking perfect.
I would recommend Joe without hesitation.. great communicator and keeping u updated with the job..
Joe delivered a most amazing and great service, self-managed, fast, reasonably priced and top quality.
Joe came on time ,dug our area with his machine , very professional dig. Even filled my garden with beautiful dirt , saved my back again. Hauled away dirt and dumped crush for the base, helped level. Great attitude, friendly and quick work. Would call him again and recommend him to friends and family .
Company replied promptly to my request for contractors through Homestars. Great communication throughout the process from start to finish even when we decided to make a couple of changes. Professional service, completed the job & left the site as well as could be expected - well graded & ready for re-seeding in the spring. Highly recommend Joe for your project!
Excellent job from Joe. He repaired drainage to our driveway, and our driveway has never looked better.
Brent & Lorraine
Great job ! Joe connected my house to sewer 200ft line , bypass old septic !!! He replaced old water line and add hydrant . Fast reliable work. Very satisfied
We called out JTB Enterprises initially to deal with water coming up through the floor of our garage. He quickly and accurately assessed the problem - lack of perimeter and rainwater drains around our structure and offered a solution to link our home's drainage, which needed repairing on one side of the house, to the garage and to install a sump and washout ports. He set out a solid plan to fix the issues and kept us in the loop every step of the way and even answered questions with understanding and patience. His site prep was organized and clean, his demeanor friendly, and best of all his work was very high quality. Not to mention the price was within our budget and accurate to the work as quoted. The drains began running and we haven't had rising water in our garage, side of our home, or surrounding areas. We definitely recommend Joe for any drainage projects.
Happy Customer
JTB did an excellent job of removing my old concrete tile perimeter drains and replaced with new and up to date drainage system. I would highly recommend them.
My wife and I are very pleased with the work done by JTB enterprises. Joe was very professional and skilled! He understood our vision for our yard and completed in under the quoted time. We have had him back for a second job and have recommended him to family and friends.
Fantastic work, same of the stumps was the size of excavator and close to the house. Work was done in very safe way. The grading was excellent too. It will be very nice and useful backyard .
Our bank on the side of our driveway was slowly eroding and washing away and in danger of trees falling over. Joe was able to dig back into the bank and create a beautiful rock boulder wall for us without damaging any trees. No root damage and we gained some much needed extra width on our driveway. Joe was very time sensitive to our project and also aware of our need to be able to access the driveway through the project.
Glen & April
I definitely made the right decision in hiring Joe to build a storm drainage system for our home. Unlike so many contractors I’ve dealt with, Joe is focused on the customer. He responded to calls or emails promptly, kept me updated on progress, and finished the project by the deadline. Joe is talented and very knowledgeable, works hard, and most importantly, takes pride in his work. I recommend Joe for any excavation and/or drainage project and would hire him again without hesitation.
