  • The Wall
    5.0
    The Wall is incredible! We needed full landscaping done for our new construction and an addition added to our patio. The work they did was amazing and they were so professional. Originally I didn’t know they did landscaping and just needed them to extend our concrete patio, but after speaking with them they told me they now do landscaping too. They put in full irrigation, put down sod and provided landscape design! It was so nice to be able to complete my entire backyard with one company. Our backyard looks perfect and we could not be more grateful for everyone at The Wall. If you need any landscaping done they are the ones you should hire

    I can't say enough about Steve and his team at Coffman. They came on board after a YEAR of fighting and frustration with the first contractor I hired and had to fire. Coffman shines even more based on my first septic contractor experience. They're not cheap. But you get what you pay for. 100% recommend

  • Spearhead Construction
    5.0
    Jordan and his team at Spearhead Construction were awesome to work with! They helped us with our backyard project to turn our backyard from a jungle to usable space. They excavated/graded and fixed drainage issues so that our new patio could be installed. All throughout the project they were professional, friendly, and great at keeping us up to speed on progress, etc. I would gladly use Spearhead Construction for our future projects as I’m so pleased with the experience and the outcome

  • Ram Jack West - Portland
    5.0
    Purchased a 1906 home in North Portland with an uneven foundation that had been patched for 60 years, but needed serious stabilization work. I contacted multiple foundation contractors in the greater-Portland area and Ram Jack was the only team that provided a full worse-case estimate that included everything that I may need to permanently stabilize the home's foundation. Other contractors' estimates were higher, omitted some of the features of Ram Jack's estimate, and involved greater excavation work around the home. While I was collecting estimates, I had multiple contractors check the levels on the house and could see the home was continuing to sink as much as half and inch in some areas within only a few months, so I knew I had to do something soon as the hotter summers are causing significant erosion to the clay soil in north portland. After paying the 50% down payment, I was quickly in touch with multiple project managers and structural engineers who were able to answer my questions as the work plan developed. I work from home and have two cats, so I was a bit worried about the noise and needing to leave at certain times during the work. Ramjack devised a plan of installing 12 helical piers from the basement and 2 outside for a small crawl space area as well as replacing most of the piers in the basement that had water damage. During the excavation and pier installation, I didn't have to leave my house at all, my cats were fine, none of the utilities ever needed to be turned off and none of the neighbors said they heard more than the hum of the generator outside; insane professionalism. The work team kept me informed at every step of the excavation and pier installation and was able to recover an inch of lift with only a few drywall cracks that I patched in a day. I could have gone further, but wanted to avoid any potential damage to the sewer pipes and stay within my budget. During the lifting, I was standing with the lead construction manager who kept me informed of every risk as we lifted the house bit by bit. During the excavation my basement looked insane with mounds of dirt everywhere, but the construction team cleaned everything flawlessly; all I had to do was a quick mop and the basement was good as new again. Overall had a great experience with RamJack; the 20 years in business shows, most everyone I dealt with had been working with them for years; the construction manager had been doing pier installation for 15 years. The work was expensive, but cheaper than the other local contractors, and certainly way cheaper than replacing the entire basement foundation. Ramjack was even able to take a few grand off the intitial worse-case estimate for solutions not needed. Glad I was able to repair my 120 year old home; here's to another 100 years. Big thanks to Pancho and Stephen, as well as the structural engineers and project managers; I'm very happy with the work

    5.0
    I cant say enough good things about this company. They had honest pricing, excellent response time, friendly staff and kept the work site clean. 3056sf plus garage new construction footings and stemwall. We had very difficult engineered plans but everything was done excellent and passed inspection with no issues. Adam is very professional and will definitely be a company I use again. Thanks again for a job well done guys!!
