My husband and I found out we needed a new drain field, no one wants news like that. I will say that with the headache of having to have it done, Wade and his awesome crew knocked it out in no time. They were very professional and even went the extra mile by hauling away what was buried when the property was originally cleared. Many thanks to Wade and his crew, I would definitely highly recommend this company!!! Heidi, Poplar Branch

Great company.......Wade Tillett did a sand BEACH PUSH for me and my family last week on the ocean at Duck. They made the new dune HUGE - in fact, the new dune looks like a mountain! Wades wife handles the communication for the company and she really stays in touch with the customer. I would recommend this company to everyone because I did not have to have have dump trucks haul sand in because Wade Excavating and Septic did it all in a timely fashion. GOD BLESS THIS WONDERFUL COMPANY because they did the work as quickly as the could and the product was outstanding.

Wade Tillett replaced my septic system several weeks ago and did a most excellent job!! He and his wife Chelsea were awesome to work with and I would highly recommend their services to anyone that needs this type of service! Gwen, Nags Head

Wade and his wife Chelsea are a CLASS ACT!  From start to finish, they were prompt, knowledgable and always willing to go above and beyond.  There is no question about the integrity and character of this couple and the business they run.  If you are in need of a septic expert, this is the company to call! They are not the biggest but they are the BEST! I am in the real estate business and am confident in recommending them to all my clients. Whitney, Kitty Hawk
Timely, Honest, Fair with Pricing, and stands by his work. Outstanding reputation backed by stellar work. Ross, Duck


Wade came out the day I called.  He is excellent about taking care of his customers and referrals. Anyone I know that needs something done related to septic systems - Wade is the only name I give.  He repaired my drain field for me because it had failed after 11 years.  This was all done 3 days before Christmas so we could have Christmas at our house! Cara, Nags Head
Wade and his wife did some work for us at our OBX property this summer. He was reasonably priced, helpful with landscaping concerns, acted as prime for some sub-contractor work for tree removal and topsoil delivery as well as drain field replacement. Throughout Wayne and his business were helpful, accurate, did what they said they would do at the price they quoted. No surprises or upcharges and when complete the work done exceeded our expectations - something that is too often not the case with OBX contractors. I recommend him without reservation. He is honest, hard working and will deliver value above and beyond what you are paying for. Thanks Wade for a great job! Use me for a reference any time it would be helpful. Jim, VA

One of the most conscientious gentlemen for detail and is very easy to work with as any person you will ever meet. I would recommend Wade without any hesitation. And his very friendly, professional wife is absolutely the best. John, Kitty Hawk
The quality of Wade's work matches the quality of his personality and we can say both are SUPER. Wade brings high quality work ethic and his super personality all the time. Barry, Nags Head
