McDonald Excavating, Inc. was founded by Mike McDonald in 1980 as a demolition and excavation firm in Washougal, Washington. Since then, our company has distinguished itself as one of the area's most capable excavation and site development contractors. We specialize in site work, including earthwork, grading, and underground utilities, for residential subdivision development as well as for large commercial building projects.
