Do it once, do it right.

KV Build combines comprehensive resources and deep experience in excavation with the insight that comes from also being in the building trades. Understanding both the specialized nature of excavation and the broader scope of construction enables our team to provide true value to developers, contractors and owners. From site prep to delivery of the right aggregate materials, KV Build tailors our work to the unique requirements of every site, maximizing efficiency and optimizing results to provide the best possible foundation to move your project forward.

Attention to details – and schedules.

Undeveloped land services.

Many residential and government projects in the greater Ashland area start with raw, undeveloped land that requires a combination of services in advance of construction. KV Build can clear trees and brush, develop new access roadways, and prepare locations for building trades in accord with all design requirements and local codes. We offer a full range of services, from ensuring proper depth and location of trenches and septic drain fields, to completing water lines, electrical and underground utilities, drain tile, driveways and property line clearing.

Working on basement finishing

Basement improvements.

Poor drainage around the foundation is the most common cause of basement water problems. Addressing these issues requires precision excavator operation. Our team can excavate around your basement and foundation, install drainage tile, insulate and waterproof the space, and then backfill with the right layers of sand, gravel and other materials to achieve proper drainage. This will protect your home or business against the damaging effects of water for many years to come.

I went to pay my Propane bill, turns out I had a credit, not a bill. Having you do my weatherization paid off, that and the mild Winter. Thanks again! Happy Customer!!!!

KV Build is the go-to company for foam insulation and related services. They are professional, the best at what they do, they go beyond expectations to work through the curve-balls common to most construction projects. The highest compliment I can offer any business is this: I trust them and their work.

From the moment they arrive these folks are competent, professional, knowledgeable and they get the job done very well. It was a bit of a wait to be able to work with them but definitely well worth it. I can recommend them wholeheartedly.
