IF YOU DON'T HIRE THIS GUY YOU'RE CRAZY. LET ME SAY IT AGAIN. IF YOU DONT HIRE THIS GUY YOU'RE CRAZY!!!! Dave came out and gave me a quote detailing exactly what he was going to do for me. The job was pretty detailed. I had a 40 x 40 basketball court that needed to be removed. This included hauling away 25 - 30 tons of concrete as well as countless railroad ties. Once the winter weather broke he c...

My experience with Dave Zile was terrible. Midway through each phase of the job he decides to raise his prices, threatening to pack up and leave if his demands aren’t met. This happened over 5 times, the 5th time this happened he packed up his things and left the site. Through the duration of the job, Mr Dave spoke to me with no respect whatsoever, swearing every few minutes, calling me a motherf*...

Dave did a great job. He removed a large, thick concrete porch that was difficult to get to. He also installed a concrete sidewalk, and removed some large bushes. He did the work quickly and at a fair price. I would definitely hire him again.

Dave was prompt in giving me a quote, and started work within an hour. He performed all work and cleaned up afterwards, filling the holes and seeding the area. I highly recommend using this service!

Dave Ziles is thoroughly professional, multi-disciplined, and is a man of his word. After a particularly brutal Winter which stressed our trees and impacted our pipes and drains we contacted Dave to take care of our problems which ranged from pipes which had collapsed upon themselves, drains which had become completely detached, a culvert and gutters which had been clogged and swamped with dead le...

I had very high expectations for this job, and Dave Zile exceeded them. The job was done on time, and on budget. Dave thought of things that I missed. Frankly, it couldn't have gone any better. I built my house many years ago, and have been involved in construction projects ever since. Dave ranks among the best contractors I have dealt with in any profession or trade in all those years. I would de...

Dave came out to assess the project on the day and time he told me. He seemed knowledgable about concrete demolition. When he asked to do a test for how the concrete would come out, I knew that he was my kind of contractor! Because he had information about the job from his test, he could give us a fair price! As it turns out this test he did was a strong predictor for how he works. He did all the ...

Contacted Dave to discuss leveling a portion of our backyard to install a shed. Dave was available the next day to provide a quote. I had a few ideas on how he could level the yard, but he had some great ideas that saved us money and materials. Dave was available to start work within a few days and it was evident he was really experienced with excavation. He was extremely professional and meticulo...
