The history of Western Septic and Excavation begins over 30 years ago. Brothers Kendall and Brandon Unruh grew up around the construction trade near Buhl, Idaho, under the influence of our father, Maynard, who owned West End Builders, Inc. West End Builders, Inc. was an established custom home building and remodel contractor, and this interaction with all aspects of the construction trade helped shape our future as we learned the various phases of building construction. As we became old enough to work in the family business, we were able to join the business as partners.
In 2005, West End Builders, Inc. purchased a backhoe and a mini excavator, and Kendall obtained his septic system installer’s license at that time. We began installing septic systems for our own construction projects as well as for other customers in the community. During this time, as we gained experience in septic system and sewer installations and repairs, we became aware of a demand for other services in the septic and sewer industries in the Twin Falls area, such as septic tank pumping, camera inspections, and hydro jetting. In 2009, Maynard and his wife, Daryla, agreed to take a volunteer position operating a child care facility on the Navajo Reservation in Window Rock, AZ, leaving the business with his sons. In 2010, due to an increasing need for quality septic and sewer services in Twin Falls and the surrounding area, we founded Western Septic and Excavation as a subsidiary of WEB, Inc, formerly West End Builders, Inc. A septic tank pumping truck was purchased, followed closely by a complete line of sewer and drain cleaning equipment. In 2011, due to further customer demand, the company added sewer camera inspection and hydro jetting services. Maynard returned from his tenure in Arizona in late 2011 and rejoined the company. In 2012, Western Septic and Excavation entered the trenchless sewer repair market with the addition of the PipePatch No-Dig pipe repair system. Since that time we have hired several employees to keep pace with the growing demand for our services. Western Septic and Excavation is committed to providing quality service at a fair price, while remaining a leader in the septic and sewer industries by investing in technology and equipment that enables us to provide solutions for even the most difficult situations. We also offer other general excavation services like water line installations, foundation excavation, and trenching for utilities or irrigation pipelines.
