Dewayne Endecott, Owner
Allow me to introduce myself – Dewayne Endecott, Owner / Operator of AA Pile Driving service on Lake Gaston.
Back in the early 1970’s, my father, A.D. Endecott (aka "Bud"), custom designed and built the first pile driving barge on Lake Gaston. Each winter he removed the barge from the water and improved the design to produce a faster and more efficient machine. He went on to construct many of the older boathouses still standing on Lake Gaston today.
As the old saying goes, hindsight is 20-20, which proves true in the case of my father not knowing Lake Gaston would grow in popularity. He sold his business, Warrenton Machine Shop, in the late 1970’s to pursue other interests.
In 1997, my father and I decided to venture back into the pile driving business together and started our business plan. By March of 1998, our business AA Pile Driving as it is known today became a reality. We worked together for 6 months before my father handed over the company to me and I became the sole proprietor and operator of AA Pile Driving. At the young age of 22, I knew I had to work twice as hard in order to prove myself as a quality competitor. It was difficult at first as I bid on projects along with others twice my age with more experience. My hard efforts paid off, as more and more projects were awarded to my business.
Three years went by and it was time to upgrade the pile driving barge once again. It was outfitted with another driving boom and twenty feet was added to the barge itself. The upgrade was designed for more speed and accuracy and is still in operation today.
Today, AA Pile Driving provides a wide range of services to both homeowners and contractors. We provide quality work, second to none, in most areas of marine construction including piers, boathouses, bulkheads, and rip rap.

"Dewayne Endecott, doing business as AA Pile Driving, replaced 60' of my bulkhead in Lake Gaston Estates this summer, and did an outstanding job. He was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and very professional. He made a couple of suggestions that were very helpful, and saved me some money. I felt very comfortable with him on my property while I was not there, and he coordinated the workers so the work was done very efficiently. I would gladly recommend Dewayne to any of my neighbors or friends. After completing this work, I have asked him to come back and do some additional work to prevent the bank erosion."

“We at Fresh Water Pearl have been immensely pleased with Dewayne’s quick action, wonderful workmanship and his always professional approach to all our needs.”
~ Billy Sparkman, Vice President
"Dewayne did an excellent job with sitting my post for a new boat house and pier. I did the construction and they were only a 1/4 of a inch off and most contractors can't get that close on dry land. It was enjoyable working behind him and would recommend AA Pile Driving to anyone."
