Andrea G.

Ted exceeded our expectations. We hired Ted to create a flat backyard and RV parking on our sloped property. Watching him excavate and move boulders with his equipment was like watching someone use a bionic arm to perform surgery. He removed our existing boulder wall, moved tons of dirt, and rebuilt the wall better than before, with little room for him to maneuver his equipment. We also had Ted dig trenches and remove part of our concrete foundation with great care to not damage the rest. He's talented, precise, creative, committed to do a good job and really pleasant to work with. We're extremely happy and highly recommend him.

Ted fit me into a tight opening in his schedule which was much appreciated and then went above and beyond with the work. True to his word and did a great job.

Ted was great. He removed a concrete slab and disposed of concrete. Also moved some large rocks in our backyard and placed nicely so we can make steps up the rocks. Did work promptly and even a little extra just to make sure everything looked just right. We are in Bend, OR. He is a good option if you are in Central Oregon.

Out of several companies, I chose Ted Rudiger, Excavation Inc. because the company spans three generations and I appreciate professional experience. Furthermore, Mr. Rudiger's estimate was fair and he was not overcharging. Mr. Rudiger and his employee were punctual and pleasant to work with. They explained the work to me at various stages and made sure that the nearby deck was properly reinforced before they started digging. Because of the narrow entrance, all materials had to be brought on site using a wheelbarrow. Mr. Rudiger had promised to do his best to spare some important vegetation and none was removed or damaged. In addition, Mr. Rudiger helped me with the complicated paperwork. He and his staff responded rapidly to my (many) inquiries and were always courteous. The site was left in good shape. We felt that the job was in reliable hands and I definitively recommend this company to others.

I would not recommend anyone to hire this company! They did a job for us and (in my opinion) they totally ripped us off. We had to hire an attorney to deal with him! We had a contract for him to remove fill dirt and put down erosion control, and he did not seem to follow the contract on many levels. We had to hire someone else to correct what they did because we continued to have issues. Consultants told us that he left 3-4 feet of dirt that was all supposed to have been removed down to native and that he put the erosion materiel the wrong way on the hill. We asked him to come back and fix what he failed to do, but he refused. If you want someone honest, in my opinion, I would not recommend anyone hire this guy!

First of all this was not an Angie'[Member Information Removed] List project, and to our knowledge you have went to every website possible to slander our company. Legal facts are with CCB and our insurance company, who also provided an engineer to your site, and findings were in our favor. We did have a meet set up with CCB, but you and your attorney cancelled the meeting, so we were not able to resolve. Our insurance company to whom was working with you waited for you to provide addt. info., and you never provided, so they closed the case. CCB has also closed the dispute. City Planner with Ore.City also inspected job site when completed and said that the problem was mitigated. The engineer that was hired from the insurance company disputed your facts and said that it could not have been our company that caused the damage. All engineers that went to site were in our favor, and not to slander your other contractor that went after the fact to your site to fix the septic system that was sliding, this contractor went through the whole project and destroyed everything we did, including fabric, french drain, all the plants and hillside materials placed were destroyed, and your contractor filled his septic hole with the plants that we placed on your hillside. Other pictures and docs show as proof, all in our favor. I am sorry that you feel that this was not resolved, but all inform., docs, pictures, emails show that the damage was not caused from our co.

Ted was great to work with. He was on time, did the work I asked him to do and exceeded my expectations with the overall quality of the work. There were roots that were buried I didn't know about and more earth to move than he had originally expected. We got it all done and are extremely happy with the result.

This was a great experience. The staff (Roberto, Tyler, Bruce, David and Ted) was excellent and kept me informed daily as what had happened and what was going to happen the next day. They cleaned up after each day and repaired a neighbors fence post that was slightly damaged during demolition. When unexpected issues came up, they found ways to make everything work. Ted ensured everything was done as per our agreement and a bit more. I'm very satisfied with the work done and would use them again if a project needed their expertise.
