About L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc.

Foundation Solutions Since 1989

Lar-Rays Excavating, Inc., began business in Hernando County, Florida, in February 1989. After three years in service it became apparent that services needed to be expanded and hence the emergence of L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc. The company began its operations in the ground modification field repairing sinkholes. It has expanded to include pre-construction soil stabilization and underpinning.

Since 1989, the company has grown from three individuals to over 100 associates. Obviously many challenges have been a part of this fast growing business, and L.R.E. has developed innovative ideas to provide superior services to our clients. By using specially designed state-of-the-art equipment, L.R.E. has reduced further damage to structures and landscaping. Our uniformed field personnel are trained to put the client at ease during the repair process by answering all questions in a polite and professional manner. They also remove excess concrete and materials daily and leave the site as neat as possible. In this highly competitive business, our commitment to the client to be professional, honest and clean has enhanced our reputation.

Innovative Approaches

L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc., has been in business since 1989. We have seen continual growth during that time, beginning with three employees to over 100 associates at this time. L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc., is a stable and reliable company in its field, and has grown to be one of the largest in the State of Florida.

Having a Quality Control background has set us apart from our competitors, in the fact that we have a cleaner operation. A cleaner work area means less second hand damage. L.R.E. stands apart from the competition. For example, most of our equipment has been specially designed to fit into small residential lots and around homes and landscaping, reduces damage to landscaping, lawns, sprinkler systems, etc. L.R.E. constantly strives to be the cleanest and most professional company in the field. Our neat, uniformed crews give the homeowner a sense of security that their home will be repaired properly. When our crews finish a job, the homeowner can hardly tell we have been there.

Since L.R.E. expanded its services with its foundation underpinning programs, it has established that L.R.E. strives to meet the clients' needs with new technology and equipment. We are the most reliable and fastest growing company in the field because we are always looking to find newer and better ways to provide our services to our clients.
