I have worked with John Dendis on several occasions over the last 15 years. I have built several car wash projects in the Finger Lakes area. I would not call anyone else when it comes to site work. John is a very talented heavy equipment operator. He also goes beyond the art of operating the equipment. He is a business man in every sense of the word. His vast knowledge is invaluable to any project. I highly recommend Dendis Construction.

Keeping our project on schedule and within the budget could not have happened without your team, thanks for working so closely with the other teams, John.

John Dendis worked on a project for the county which I was in charge of. It was an ecologically sensitive area. It involved a village water supply as well as four different owners. The work was done quickly, efficiently, and professionally. There were erosion problems as well as wash out under buildings. Everyone was pleased with the outcome.

John Dendis and his team turned what could have been a disaster into a dream come true. Our home on Cayuga Lake experienced a landslide directly under the house leaving a hole 20’ wide and 6’ tall, and I thought our family’s dream of lake house might be over. Enter John, who immediately knew what to do, and began working with me to create a tiered, developed and absolutely beautiful hillside that exceeded our wildest expectations. (See photos.) Not only was the result great, but the experience was too.  John, who has an experienced highly skilled team, was a pleasure to work with throughout the project. He embraced our vision and carved it out of our hillside, working closely with me the whole way.  My wife and kids even enjoyed the team and the experience! I’m proud of what we created together and it will serve our family well for generations to come.
