  • Modern Scapes and Hydroseeding
    5.0
    We had the retaining wall on both sides of our driveway replaced along with the stairs and walkway leading up to our front door. Joe and his guys were here early and worked late. Everything was cleaned up at the end of everyday and the finished product look great. We can't leave the house without someone stopping us to say how nice it looks.

    The day of the excavating, Troy, the crew chief, contacted me at work to say that the sanitary sewer line was not in fact made of orangeburg (an inferior grade of material), but steel, which would have a much longer life span. (A previous vendor had told me the line was made of orangeburg(. For a mutually agreeable reduced price, I opted for them to simply install the cleanout access and the check valve near the house and not to dig up and replace the rest of the sanitary sewer line. The crew was quite expert at the excavation, which was right up against the house and near a gas line. The digging included extracting and replanting two large juniper shrubs, which survived, thanks to the speed and the surgical precision with which the crew worked.

    Joseph Smith did exactly what we discussed and he left my property looking the same way it was before he did any work. You could't really tell any digging was done. Very pleased with the work that was performed. Joe is very hard working and thorough I would highly recommend him.

  • Szczepanski Construction
    5.0
    We called Szczepanski construction, spoke to owner, Steve. We explained that we needed some ditch work done. We scheduled a day/time for Steve to come on location to assess the work that needed to be done. Steve arrived as scheduled and was very informative and helpful to us in determning the solution to our water run-off problems. We agreed on the details and the cost of the project, and scheduled a day/time for the work to be done. Steve and his team arrived as scheduled and performed the work. We are very pleased with the speed in which the job was done and more than pleased with the outcome, the price, and the way in which Steve and his crew conducted themselves (professional, expert, honest).

  • R J Zigmont's Excavating Contr
    5.0
    Mr. Zigmont himself did the work. He had a very confined space to work in. He was like a pro with his equipment. The water was only shut off for maybe 3 hours while the entire sewer unit of the house was replaced. You could not even tell he was here when he was done. I would highly recommend Zigmont's for your sewer needs. He is very honest, a man of his word, someone you can trust.

  • Szczepanski Construction
    5.0
    Called Szczepanski Construction for needed septic work. I was contacted back within a day and Steve (the owner) was out to assess the situation within a few days.They were able to fit me into their schedule almost immediately and all work was done at my house within a day and a half. They were very easy to talk to and kept me informed as to what they were doing as the work progressed. It became obvious that they are very good at what they do and I felt like I was in good hands. The work area was left so clean and nicely leveled off that you'd never know any work had been done there, except that the grass was missing. The bill came in for less than I was expecting and I couldn't be more pleased with their performance. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone and do plan to use them again for some future work needed on my property.

    Every project was handled with professionalism and courtesy. He installed several paver pathways and built a retaining wall for us as well as doing landscaping in our backyard. Over the course of the years we've spent close to $15,000 with him on projects at both our house and cottage and have never been dissatisfied with his work.

  • Murdock's Excavation Inc
    5.0
    John and Tim and the crew arrived on time and did a FANTASTIC JOB! the work was respectful of our lawn and grounds, and John Murdock is still the master at operating the backhoe! With only 2" of total clearance, he dug a trench with expert precision and was flawless! The new line was installed from the tank into the basement including a new baffle cleanup in less than three hours! If you need excavation of ANY KIND, burdocks Excavation is the company for you! A+++++

  • SHUTA HAULING & EXCAVATING
    5.0
    At first, we weren't very happy with Gary. We were purchasing a new house and needed an estimate to satisfy the requirements of the contract. Gary wouldn't come out, which disappointed us because he competitors were clearly eager to come out and help us. He gave us a rough estimate over the phone. It was clear he was a "contractor's contractor". However, his estimate was so good, we called him to come out after we had purchased the house. He walked through the project with us and gave a VERY good number on everything we wanted to do (tear out and re-grade old driveway + add section to the drive way). Even though he gave us a good number, the job he and his crew did was top notch and we were very impressed. Ultimately, we went with Gary and were very very pleased with the result. We would recommend him to anyone looking for driveway/asphalt work.

  • ELEGANT ESTATES

    From the first moment I engaged Chris Negley and his team at Elegant Estates to today, this firm has been simply outstanding to work with. They were able to help me turn the outside of a property I bought five years ago into an oasis where my family loves to spend time. What was an awkward multi-level yard with crumbling decades-old rock walls leading to the lower level is now a three tier terraced outdoor living area with gorgeous trees, lush plantings, a beautiful built-in grill, both dining and seating areas and a fire pit we love to use on those cool summer nights. Low voltage lighting comes on in the evenings, lighting the area with ambiance. The stairs are wide, easy to navigate and beautiful to look at as you are walking out from the house. Simply gorgeous. They did such a great job that we brought them back the following year to attack the crumbling concrete driveway in the front, and now I have a stunning water-permeable paver driveway that is not only awesome as the water from above us on the mountain no longer rushes across my lawn (having sunk into the gravel bed below the pavers) but is also a gorgeous look from the street. They built planters and added lighting, and have sensor under the pavers that will be connected this year to turn on and heat the driveway when it snows - no more shoveling for me! EE does a phenomenal job. Chris listens, draws up plans that can be delivered in a single job or through multiple over the years, and his crew is great. I trust them completely to do quality work, and to care more about doing what is right for us as a family than to make the most on a job. I would turn to them time and again for work - they are just that good. Thank you Chris, Tyler, John and team - you are outstanding.
