Landis C. Deck & Sons Site Contractors Contributes to ABC s This Sunday, October 24, 2010, Landis C. Deck & Sons Site Contractors (LCD) will appear on ABC’s hit series "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," airing at 8:00PM on ABC.

The project took place at end of July 2010 in Tilden Township, Berks County, which is about 15 minutes from the LCD office in Bernville, PA. LCD became involved through L.A. Kehres Building & Remodeling, Inc. (L.A. Kehres), who, as well as LCD, is a member of the Home Builders Association of Berks County. The Home Builders Association was enlisted by the show to perform the project. Because LCD had performed work in the past for L.A. Kehres, the owner, Larry, a member of the "Build Team" suggested that LCD complete the site work for the project.

The project consisted of the demolition of an existing but structurally deficient farmhouse, which was occupied by a family in need, and the re-building of a new home in which the family will reside. The parameters of the show allow one week for the completion of the project. The family is sent away on a 7-day vacation while all the work is completed, and the house is revealed to them upon their return. LCD worked from Day 1 until their work was complete on Day 6. LCD’s portion of the project included all site work, including excavation, grading, and installation of the septic system, as well as the driveway installation. LCD’s generous donations to the project included labor, equipment, stone, fill, and topsoil.

It is noteworthy to mention that this project was completed in the second fastest time ever in the history of the show, and was the fastest for a conglomerate of builders, such as the Home Builders Association of Berks County.

LCD provides full-service site contracting from their base of operations in Bernville, PA, and has been a proud member of The H&K Group Family of Companies since 1998. For more information on LCD or The H&K Group, please phone 610-488-8929 or visit
