Recent Excavating Reviews in Buffalo

  • Quality Concrete
    Found George and Erin to be professional and perfectionist. On time, tidy and felt like talking to a neighbor. Highly recommend.

  • J H Trucking & Excavating
    We had limited access to the backyard to tackle this job. John knew exactly what to do. The project went far better than expected. 3 days of work and complete! After a couple of days, John came back to check the sod and finished off the front curbside with sod, dirt and seed. The best part of this project was the positive comment from my neighbor. He said that he was impressed with how quickly the job went and how respectful John and his crew were regarding his property. That comment would seal any deal

  • T-Mark Plumbing Heating & Cooling
    Previous occupants of the house were flushing anything and everything down the pipes. A broken riser was the result from 4 failed attempts at snaking done by other plumbers, whom I do not wish to shame. I finally called the right guys, with the right tools and knowledge to take care of the problem once and for all. They were efficient and very professional. They thanked me for allowing them to do my plumbing even. Just call them and skip the giant headache. Their prices are fair and completely justified. Or call to book a quote! Thank me later

  • R E Peters Landscaping & Drainage
    Ralph and his crew were incredible. They came out the same day I called and fixed a drainage issue on short notice. I ended up having a separate problem a few months later and used them again. They did excellent work both times. I rarely write reviews, but was compelled to recommend them due to the quality of their work

  • Quality Concrete
    Very well, I would highly recommend Quality Concrete. George Borowski and his team were great, they promised to clean up and I have no doubt they will. They come back Monday for final sealant, etc.

  • RIC Plumbing Inc
    So happy to be able to use the plumbing again within 4 hours of their arrival, after dealing with repeated cleanings for the previous 10yrs which was just getting worse as the years passed. If they were unhappy to on the coldest day of the year so far, they hid it well. They did leave behind 1 of their power cords, forgot to reconnect my downspout completely, and poked a hole in the screen door, but that's pretty minor for work done that I won't have to worry about until the day I die or sell the house. They came back when I called to finish the downspout, get their cord and take away an old pipe left in the basement that they replaced. I would recommend them for replacing a sewer line to anyone, but I can warn you - they don't give free estimates, unless they can't camera your line 1st

  • The Plumber
    1. Have used their services since having homeserve insurance for about 3 years now. We have had them out multiple times for snaking and hydrojetting of my basement floor drain. Wipes, grease, hair-understand that’s all on us as homeowners. What is not on us is pulling out roots and not suggesting an estimate to the line. Then next back up call and it’s snaked and part of an old snake was pulled out of the line. After having all of this and being told on our last snaking that HomeServe would not approve a camera i reached out to a different company to have them camera the line. Which lead to me discovering we had a break at our foundation and the end of the line was underwater. I submitted the info to HomeServe and a camera from the plumber was sent out on Tuesday July 26, 2022 to which Will cameraed the line and discovered that we had two breaks in the line-told me that it would be submitted to insurance and I would be called to schedule-I said can you note that I would like a Monday when we look at scheduling because I’m off on mondays. 2. Thursday July 28th, 2022 I am getting ready to leave for work and I see a company marking the street for digging, I figure ok ahead of the work awesome they’ll probably reach out today-wrong. I leave for work and my grandmother that was watching my children calls me and says that they are there to do the work-no call no nothing. No dispatch email like normal nothing. I immediately call the plumber to which i spoke with an office manager and an underground manager that were extremely rude. Office manager did explain someone was suppose to call me the night before but neither me nor my husband received the call. The underground manager asked if I was paying out of pocket or insurance-which why does that matter if you just show up to dig up my lawn without me knowing. Being a newer homeowner I personally would’ve liked to be home. 3. Reason I wanted to be home during the job were to ensure everything was cleaned up. I had McDonald’s cups all over, left over piece of clay pipe on lawn, gravel overthrown all over my lawn, and the complete half of my lawn looks like it was a race track of a visible circle that was driven. My concrete sidewalk leading up to my house (my property-not a city sidewalk) was cracked by the machine being driven over it. (I also have that on video as well of it happening as my entire house has cameras) 4. My husband reached out to the plumbers office on Friday July 29th 2022 to which when he called he was asked for the address and he was told the job was complete now. That’s when he explained that the sidewalk leading up to the house was cracked. The woman that he spoke with told him that no mention of the cracked concrete in the work order to send picture and provided an email. I immediately emailed photos clearly showing the crack and the track marks from the excavator. Heard nothing. I then reached out to HomeServe to which they reached out and we’re told a manager would call me back no call. I called HomeServe again and the woman justice there emailed the plumber and again no answer to myself or HomeServe because I’m sure someone would’ve called by now about the concrete pa

  • T-Mark Plumbing Heating & Cooling
    Went great, they are polite, efficient, quick and cleaned up nicely. Plus they were able to save most of the shrubs in front of the house. I recommend them heartily. I worked with Steven and thought he was really helpful.

  • T-Mark Plumbing Heating & Cooling
    Given that it was an expensive and unexpected repair that needed to be made, T-Mark was great. Jeff not only came in with the best price, but he broke the pricing down into two parts - one if they didn't have to break into the street and the second if they did, since he wouldn't know until he dug through how much pipe needed to be replaced. Even at the quote stage he sent one of his crew back with a longer camera scope to see if they could get a better idea of how extensive the damage was. Once they started digging, Jeff realized that they would not have to dig up all the way to the middle of the road, they could just insert the new pipe into the old from the curb to the mainline, which saved some money, but he also realized that unless I put a sump pump in the basement, there was no guarantee that I wouldn't get more water in the basement in the future. So the money I saved by not having them go to the street, I spent on a sump pump and I am glad I did. They rerouted my interior basement drain lines, put in the sump pump and cistern for about what they had originally quoted the whole project, and given all the snow we had this winter and the rain and drain off, the sump pump has been very busy. It is so nice knowing that I don't have to worry about water in the basement and the suggestion for the sump pump was great, so money well spent. So glad that Jeff was looking out for my best interest when he suggested changes to the original job, and even though it took them more time it saved me in the long run
