Reviews in Chicago to Prepare Building Site

BRETT GRANTHAM EXCAVATING
5.0
There were some hiccups, at no fault of Grantham, but Brett and his team were able to adapt and keep the project moving. Especially in the situation he was able to use his connections to other trades to make sure I didn't lose a week calling around for someone to even give me an estimate. As for the excavation, I don't know exactly what makes a good or a bad job... but I do know the concrete guys were very happy with what he left them to work with. While I can't see needing another foundation dug anytime soon, they would be my first call.

Florim from Landmark Demolition was wonderful. He contacted me right away, came out within 2 days, and hauled away a lot of rock/brick/pavers from my yard. He went out of his way to help me break and remove a very large rock stoop...he got some, but it was too hard and thick for even a jackhammer to get through (he went all the way back to Bollingbrook to get it). He was polite, prompt, and efficient. I would hire again.

QUALITY EXCAVATION INC
5.0
Quality Excavation was one of the subcontractors working on our new home. It's a typical Chicago lot with a tight fit coming in, a fence on one side and home on another, so they had to work in limited space to manuveur. The excavation and removal of the earth was well coordinated and the entire excavation/removal was completed in less than a day. Charlie handled the shovel like an extension of his hand, and it was nice to watch him work. I would definitely consider Quality Excavation for any future work and I do recommend them to others as well.

I called on a Saturday night and they were very responsive getting to my house after hours. They than tried to rout out the drain to no success and then diagnosed the issue quick and repaired it within the same week. They also went above and beyond to try and get the work approved through my insurance. Thank to all for your outstanding customer service and professionalism. TIM B

BGR Construction Inc

I would not hire this contractor again. This contractor gave us a bid based on plans provided by us. The plans called for 6 piers with footings to be placed below the frost line, and a foundation wall with footings below the frost line. The contractor completed the walls per the plan, but did not dig the piers per the plan. My husband and I spent about 8 hours arguing our point with the building inspector and BGR, before he finally agreed to remove the footings that he poured just about 23" below grade, and replace them with piers poured per the plans. Then when it came time to pour the slab, the contractor did not perform that task per the plans either. The end result is that although the completed project is adequate to carry the weight of the structure we are building, it is not far enough above the finished grade, and we are regrading our yard to be able to have the wood parts of our structure 6" above the finished grade. If BGR had poured the slab per the plans, it would be sitting 5" higher that it is, and we would not have to regrade our yard. At this point we are sick of dealing with this contractor and we paid them to get rid of them.

Everything went perfectly. The team was courteous and worked fast and efficiently. They hand dig down to the sewer main in a tight area and installed a valve that will keep water from coming into the basement when the sewer system is overwhelmed with rain water. Replaced the water heater that was damaged in the flooding. It all went quickly and professionally. I would definitely use them again!

Recent Review: I called Roto-Rooter because there was a sewer backup into my house on April 9, 2016. I arranged to have a technician come out to clean out the sewer line. The technician arrived on April 10, 2016, cleaned out the sewer line of debris, and used a video camera to make sure the line was clean and found a section of the sewer pipe that was damaged. The technician provided an estimate for the excavation, removal and replacement of the damaged sewer line and details on what to expect. The technician also provided the information for Roto-Rooter to remove and clean that damaged area from the sewer backup. The lead for the cleanup team arrived on April 10, 2016, took pictures, and arranged for a team to remove the damaged portions of the house and clean the affected area. The cleanup team arrived latter and worked to remove the damaged flooring and completed this task and cleaned the floor on April 11, 2016. The excavation team arrived on April 12, 2016, dug the trench to get to the damaged pipe, removed and replaced the damaged section of sewer pipe, arranged for the city engineer to inspect the work to make sure the work was up to city code, added a new sewer clean out access point, and replaced any dirt that was removed. The excavation team placed pieces of plywood on the ground to protect the ground for when they replaced the dirt. Each person was knowledgeable about to expect and how the process works.
