  • Maintained By Mike
    Mike was great! He talked thru our options, suggested a couple things I wouldn't have thought of, and did excellent, careful work. I thought his rates were very reasonable, and he is a good guy to work with. I would definitely hire him again.

    Mike is fantastic. He was very responsive to our inquiries. Great communication, just a lovely guy. He was great with my kids too, let the 4 yo "help" him with moving gravel. We would absolutely hire him again.

    Nick and Russell at R.N.D. Construction were quick to respond to an estimate request, provided knowledgeable insight on the project, and completed the job in a timely manner. Very professional and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommend.

    They were very efficient. Their work was very well done, and they left our basement clean. Oh, and it's been three years and the basement is completely dry.

    Scott was very responsive. He gave us an estimate on a Saturday for removal of several dead or dying trees in the woodline of our property. We also needed our driveway leveled out and a drainpipe replaced that ran under the driveway. We also wanted a lot of mulching done once he finished. The estimate was a little higher than some others, but he actually gave me a firm date to do the work so we signed him up. As promised, on Monday morning he and his crew arrived, did all the work as contracted and cleaned up all the mess! The entire property looks even better than I had hoped for. After months of searching, this company actually came when they said they would and did exactly what was requested. I would definitely hire them again

    We’re on time and completed when said they would be and then came back and did other odd jobs. Great response time and nice work

    They did an excellent job with both situations and can not find anything at this point to fault them on. They will be my go to water fixers from now on.

    I could not be happier with the excavating and installation done by Commonwealth Underground. I had another contractor walk away from the job after taking the contract due to the underground utilities, but Commonwealth Underground was more than confident in their ability to get the job done. They completed the job quickly, professionally, and at 1/3 of the price of the contractor that walked off the job

    The amount and quality of work done by Mike and his additional worker was everything we could've hoped for and more. Before Mike rescued our driveway, it was in bad shape - completely washed out (12" deep hole in one spot) along with terrible drainage, there were dips, it was uneven, grassy middle strip...the list goes on and on. He dug a perfect trench along the driveway and filled it with rip rap, we needed 40 tons of gravel to repair the driveway, a new trench dug at the top of the driveway, etc. etc. they even cut back limbs and probably a whole lot more that I probably don't even just looks great! He was incredibly fair, straight-forward and did an exceptional job. We made a few changes along the way and he took it in stride and made it work like it was originally part of the plan. You will not be disappointed hiring Mike or anyone he works with. Couldn't have been nicer or more professional. My husband and I will absolutely be hiring him again for more work on our property

    I brought Mike on full time from Jul 15 until Aug 31st. He was in charge of all exterior work. He also worked with my other contractors and assisted with any painting, carpentry, debris removal, and overall logistics. Mike is a extremely trustworthy, reputable, and anyone who uses his services will not be disappointed. I would not be able to complete my renovation without his help. This is my second time using his services
