I used English 30 years ago for a water leak and I found them to be highly reputable and competent, so when I had sewer issues I immediately called Mick. They kept me informed about the work they were doing and were extremely professional and respectful. Would hire them again.

It went fine. It was expensive but from what I understand excavation is usually high. They came out on 9/21 and dug the necessary trenches and connected large PVC pipes that run down my front yard, join and then go into a gravel filled hole with a pop up above. They filled in the trenches which left some mounds of dirt in the yard. Waited until mid-October to let the ground settle and then they ca...

We were very happy with the job results! We would definitely use this company again. They were responsive and got the job done quickly.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had a main sewer line at a rental property that had partially collapsed. Drains were starting to backup in the property. We explained that this was somewhat of an emergency. We called Mick English on Monday afternoon. He came out first thing Wednesday morning, assessed the job and gave us a quote. He explained permits had to be filed and utilities marked in yard so work would be done Friday morning. His company arranged the permits and work was done on time as promised.

I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful this company is. I suddenly had low water pressure in the house and called the water company. They came out and said I had a leak. They turned off the water to the house. I called my home repair team, Home Experts, and they recommended English Excavating. Mark English came out less than an hour after I called and it was a Sunday afternoon. He said he would ...

They were referred by another Angie's list company and I was given exceptional service that is apparently what they always offer. The job was completed in approximately an hour. I asked for additional work and it was performed without issue in a very competitive price. Everyone that was on site was professional and more than knowledgeable about my problem and how to take care of it. It was dug up ...

I live in Meridian Kessler in a home built in 1925.  Ever since we moved in in June 2015 we have had issues with the basement floor drain backing up when a lot of water is being used in the home.  In late December it finally became a larger issue and unbearable.  After several attempts from another company to declog the sewer line were unsuccessful, I called Mick English (who was recommended by a ...

Mr English was awesome.  He said he could do pipe bursting, which was a bit more expensive, but it would save my landscaping.  He came out and did the project seamlessly in a few days with minimal inconvenience to my family and  a small mess in the basement.  It took 2-3 days, but in the end, all I can say is Wow!.   Everyone else wanted to tear up my yard and my brand new landscaping.  He saved i...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had a pipe that was in grown with roots.  The problem was we had just redone the landscaping 2 years before.   The plants, rocks, and concrete would all have to be torn up to fix the drain using the conventional methods offered by the first two guys that evaluated the situation.
