Mike Pendergrast - CF Excavating

Mike Pendergrast

Michael Pendergrast, a Skagit County native, started as a equipment operator constructing logging roads.  In 2012, he took a leap and created PENDER Construction. He and his crew began with logging roads, fish passages, and road maintenance. As business grew, PENDER Construction added residential & commercial site work.  

Michael, his wife Trista and their two boys live in Bow, Washington. As a family they enjoy skiing in the winter and boating in the summer. As a graduate of Burlington-Edison High School and Eagle Scout, he gained leadership skills and recognized the value in being a productive member of the local community. 

In 2020, a new opportunity arose. Michael is one of the founding members of CF Excavating. This collaboration provides the opportunity to be involved in more expansive and innovative projects. Michael is excited about what CF Excavating can offer you.
