C.E. Layman

Our History

While C.E. Layman & Son Drilling Inc, was not founded as a sole proprietor until 1991, our family has been drilling in Southeast Michigan since 1928. Our president and owner, Charlie Layman, has brought over four generations of knowledge in the drilling industry to Ortonville for the last 15 years. Due to our extensive history in the area and the expertise we have shown our customers, we remain the number one water well drilling and service company in the Greater Detroit Area. 

All of our employees believe that honesty is the best policy which is why we will never up-charge or over-sell ourselves for a service. We want all of our customers to get exactly what they need; when they need it. Whether that includes troubleshooting a “fix-it-yourself” dilemma or a full well drilling, we will give you the best customer service in Oakland and surrounding counties. 

Charlie’s father began teaching him the business at a very young age and instilled in him to take pride in his work. This is a trait that Charlie has also passed onto his son, Nick. This is why we 100% believe in installing a high-quality product within a well system the first time, so that it will last longer for our customers without needing to be serviced.

Over the last 20 years most of our well drilling business has come from homeowners spreading the word – which we could not be more excited about! However, we are also excited to announce that, along with individual homeowners, we also have extensive experience in working with commercial facilities, replacement wells, and demolition companies who are abandoning wells – which by the state’s law, requires a licensed driller to perform.
