Hi! I'm Johnny Pipp

I’ve worked on equipment since I was a boy and tried one of those big office jobs for awhile until I decided to start my own Excavating company. I’ve grown up in Birmingham and I love this area. My boys are now starting to learn about machines and the family business as well. I take pride in my work and my integrity, which is why I will always be honest and open when figuring out services. 

I am the owner and founder of Pipp and sons excavating. I love what I do and I’m proud of the results we have been able to deliver. 

our philosophy

We pride ourselves on being a business built on integrity, quality, and trust.

What clients are saying

Quality work and very timely. We had a severe drainage problem in our front yard causing water to pool under our house. Pipp & Sons came out and I was hands off! They handled the whole project while keeping me informed of what the plan was and took into account any specific requests I had. Several very heavy rains later and my crawlspace is still dry! Great to find reliable contractors still exist.

What clients are saying

Pipp & Sons Excavating is the real deal! Knowledgeable, professional, hardworking, trustworthy and very reasonably priced. We have used him for several projects and recently had him install a driveway entrance gate for us and it looks great! We are always pleased with the quality of his work. Johnny is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet and he shows up & gets the job done.

What clients are saying

Worked with Jonny, great guy and knows what he is doing. Priced the competition out of the water and finished the job earlier than expected. Would recommend these guys for any land clearing or grading you need!
