At LakeCountry Construction we are committed to exceeding client satisfaction, but please do not take our word for it. See what our clients have to say:

"You and your crew did a major terra forming and drainage project at our summer home on Widewater Lane. You imagineered a project to drain the vast amounts of water that drains from the properties uphill from us and divert that water further downhill from us without disturbing any of our neighbors on Singing Woods Lane. You employed an engineering firm to make formal plans and drawings for the project to ensure everything would drain properly, you obtained clearance from the Country and City of Syracuse water authorities to ensure that our project would protect the lake as it is a primary water source for the City, and then your guided equipment per engineering drawings, terraformed and dug a network of four-foot-deep trenches filled with twelve-inch drainpipes surrounded by clean gravel all draining to an area that was prepared to receive a volume of water without damaging any other property.

The system has worked magnificently. We cannot thank you enough for the terrific job you and your crew have done for us."

“Having lived in my house for 34 years with no significant basement water issues, I was not prepared for the water which flooded my basement when there was significant rain and or snow melt this past year. I sought a resolution for this from various water solution experts. I felt frustrated with the conflicting opinions and lack of local resources to definitively define and deal with the problem. Fortunately I remembered LakeCountry Construction & Contour with whom I had worked with on another project. They responded quickly to my call, came and assessed the problem and presented a complete plan handling all facets of the work so that I did not have to engage in extensive preparation on my own. I now have a dry basement and the work solved other issued including a rusty faulty exhaust on the furnace which was probably leaking carbon monoxide. If you want a complete plan rather than the purchase and installation of a system which may or may not resolve the problem, try LakeCountry Construction. They are competent, courteous and able to handle every aspect of the job. ”

“We would recommend Jim & The Lake Country Team without hesitation! We have been working with their team over the past two years on a residential backyard drainage & improvement project. From the beginning, the responsiveness & planning time Jim spent with us was invaluable. The crew members have been so personable & courteous - being sure to seek input & approval on things along the way - and providing smart, aesthetically-sound suggestions on decisions to be made. From a brand new deck & pergola to an extensive excavation & drainage solution, they have been wonderful to work with. Most importantly, the plan & execution have surpassed our expectations & addressed the needs we had. They event kept an eye out for  our family dog throughout the project given she was in the work area daily - ensuring her safety at all times & showing the care and attention they put towards the people they do work with! 

Please use this local & well-established business for any building needs you may have!!
