Gensler, Inc

Call Gensler Inc. to dig my basement and install my septic. Ryan did an outstanding job on everything. Would definitely have him do work again in the future if needed.

I got them from Angie's List and they were an excellent choice. He is extremely skilled. He can problem solve and figure out difficult situations. He was able to get excavating equipment between 2 houses in a very narrow space with outdoor gas meters on either side. He is a one man show with every kind of equipment possible that you would need. He can really customize his equipment to fit the job whether it is a small or large area. His pricing is reasonable. What he accomplishes in one hour of work would take other contractors far longer to do so he accomplishes a great deal in a limited period of time. He is very pleasant to work with and communicates well. We have used him several times. We have worked with him for several years.

Dave worked hard with me in a pinch to get the job done before the ground froze in early December. He is a hard worker and good person.

Dave's a true pro. He handled my difficult job with ease, was responsive to all of my requests, and had a very fair price.

Olp LLC
5.0
Olp LLC is a small family-owned excavating service. I first contacted him for demolition of an old house that was beyond repair. Steve Olp (owner) showed up for the estimate and was very knowledgeable. It didn't hurt that he offered the lowest bid of three contractors. During demolition, I was so impressed with his work ethic that I asked him to stay on for the new excavation as well as installing a new sewer line. He is licensed to do all exterior plumbing work so he was a good fit for what I needed. Over the course of overseeing his work, I was very impressed with his attention to detail. Normally you don't think of excavation as a detail-oriented job, but besides being a licensed plumber for exterior work, he is also a skilled surveyor. He made sure the excavation and appropriate fill was brought in for the new foundation and was leveled and compacted at the exact height specified. That is detail work. He made sure the 90' sewer lateral was laid at the right depth and sloped properly–another crucial detail. He also made insightful suggestions about drainage that ended up saving me time and money in the long run. He performed the work as if it was his own house, always thinking about how his work would affect the new building performance and trying to forestall any problems that might crop up. If I could use the term 'craftsman' for something as rough as excavation, I would call him a craftsman. For demolition, excavation, sewer line work, etc. you would be fortunate to hire Steve Olp as your contractor.

Everything went well. Steve was responsive and stuck to the schedule he set. The work was great and he even accommodated a few minor changes. Once winter is over, we will be using him to grade the lot. We would definitely recommend Gausmann Trenching.

Brad was the third service provider I called. The first never called me, the second called me three days later. Brad returned my call in one hour. I should have just called Brad. He visited me to provide an estimate and to talk about the job. He was polite, straight forward, and a good guy. We received heavy rain the night before the scheduled work. Brad called me early that morning and communicated that because of the wet conditions it was best to wait one day. He then drove to my house at 6:30 the next morning to assess the situation and then returned with his equipment to do the work. When I got home I was amazed at how awesome my property looked. Brad left me a voicemail after he completed the work, but I was blown away by how great everything looked. The best part is he completed the work for half of the price of his estimate. The work was so good, complete, and exactly what I asked for that I would have happily paid full price. I highly recommend Brad Kirch to anybody looking for high quality excavating and landscaping work. He's responsive, responsible, fair, and skilled. I wish I could upload a photo of the work so you could see it (hint hint Angie's list).

I have been trying to get this driveway done for 2 years and he did it in 2 days. Everything went very well. I would recommend them. They did exactly what I wanted done and did it efficiently. The estimates were a little higher than others, but it was definitely worth it. He had all the right equipment for the job, which was an issue talking to others.

He said he would get back with me about the price of the job. I called him many times without an answer, and then called on a different phone so he wouldn't know it was me and said he would drop the estimate in my mailbox. He dropped a letter in my mailbox saying that he would not be able to do the job. He said he was too busy, after he said he didn't have any jobs lined up around the original estimate. I asked him why he wouldn't do the job and was saying that I, personally, wouldn't be able to be made happy by his work.

Meade Construction Co Inc
5.0
They were real pros. I don't think you could find any better. Every result was just perfect. Their communication was good with me. When they were doing some excavation outside the lower level, they used a rotating laser level to get the slope just right. They offered ideas about flat work to get it just right. They were familiar with zero entrace access and in floor heating. They did a great job all around.

Recent Review: Overall my project went well and I would use this company again. I also had a independent Jendusa Engineering report so I was comfortable with the price and that they were doing necessary things. I used this company for the following reasons. 1.) I felt there representative (Blain G) was professional. The rep listened to me, somthing other companies did not do when giving estimates. 2.) I felt there company was large enough to get my foundation replacement job done fast. 3.) They assured me that they could do the job without damaging the neighbors property(Which was the only access). Things that went well: 1.) The crews took extra care to avoid damaging the neighbors property that they had to go on to get my job done. 2.) Crews cleaned up after themselves. 3.) All workers were very very nice. 4.) Everything else not noteed below. Things that didn't go perfect. 1.) The job took a few days longer than expected (no extra charge). 2.) Crews showed up on Saturday when they said they were only coming on Sunday. Overall I am very satisfied with CRC and would use them again if need be.

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.
