Excavating Reviews in Denver


I called them for an estimate of the work we wanted to do. The original estimate was just for a small repair where the sewer cleanout pipes were, but added in the sinking step and concrete around the patio door that created a problem for water pooling with leaking downstairs. They were very polite and though there schedule was backed out several months they moved the work ahead of other projects for my elderly parents. They didn't want them to wait and have more problems with water in the basement as well as issues that could occur with walking out the door on a very sunken step. Some bad weather delayed the original timing, but they still put this job ahead of others. They were very careful and cleaned up after the demoiltion of the portion of patio they needed to remove. The next day, the concrete was delivered and poured into place, stamped and cleaned up. The match was really good and since the stamp was such an old pattern, they rented it and it blended pretty well even though it was slightly different. My parents were very pleased with all the work. They came back about a week later to cut the plastic pipe to level in the concrete where the cleanout was. This is a family owned business and I felt very comfortable with all of them. They were all extremely nice and wanted to do the best job for us.

to replace the main sewer line for $4925. Got two other bids; one was essentially the same ($4950) and the other was about $1000 higher. They did the work as promised and in a timely (1.5 day) manner. They did have to reschedule for a couple of days later because their pipe bursting machine was down - but they called the day before to let me know.

After 5 sewer line cleanings, following 5 backups in our basement, we knew it was time to have our clay sewer pipe replaced. We contacted several companies we found on Angie's list.

was by far the most professional, responsive, and flexible.

came out to evaluate the situation and was forthcoming with information, expectations and price. Every question, concern and phone call were answered immediately. He even went the extra mile to look into all options to keep our cost as low as possible. The crew that did the excavation and pipe replacement were punctual, polite and hard working. I highly recommend this company. This was a great expense for us and I feel we found the best company to do the work for us.

Excellent. They were efficient, extremely well priced, and provided friendly service. They were a pleasure to work with.
They worked long hours and were very respectful or our neighbors during their demolition work.
They are a family owned company and each member is nicer than the next.

It was a great experience. We needed to replace our sewer line and called around for quotes. Plumbing companies were asking around $9,000.
Denver Excavators Provider Name Locked
quoted around $4,500, but it ended up being $200 cheaper than anticipated -- very honest, reasonable pricing. They were able to start the work very quickly and finished a big project in one day. And our sewer thankfully works just great now. I just recommended them to a friend and realized I hadn't left a review, so here it is. Highly recommended.

They were hired to dig a sewer cleanout and when they did that we think they didn't compact the dirt well enough around the water main when they were finished, and that is why the water main broke. We are in litigation now.

Bill was prompt and professional from the first call we made to ask him for an estimate. We were coming in from out of state and he was more than obliging in meeting our schedule. He impressed us with his friendliness and knowledge of what needed to be done to remedy our situation. Our patio roof was ready to be replaced and he gave us a thorough explanation of what would need to be done. His first bid was for a complete demo and rebuild. While it was a very fair bid, we decided to just remove the roof for now and clean up everything until we could decide how to proceed. He gladly bid the demo, all clean-up and projected that the work would take three days. After clearing up some questions with the bid, we contracted with him to do the work. Our daughter who is living in the house was most impressed with Bill and felt his work schedule would give consideration to the fact that she has pets and a new baby. The work was scheduled to begin based on a date that we could be back in town to observe the job. A debris roll-off was delivered prior to the work starting and Bill arrived promptly on the first day. Over the three days, work started promptly and time was allowed for the pets to come outside. A few other details came up during the demo which Bill explained and we agreed to add to the Contract. Bill recommended a company to supply the replacement gutters and except for the installation of those, the job was completed and cleaned up in the estimated three days. We are very satisfied with all of the work and would call him for further projects without hesitation.

This went extremely well. We had a bid from another company that was about $2500 more and they were going to do less work. From the first phone call until the final check there was never a concern. Everything was extremely professional. Should we ever have the need for a plumber this will be our first, and only, phone call.

Update: 8/2011...More /> I was in paramedic school at the time the original work was completed and had very little time to think about anything other than school during the intensive program. When our sewer collapsed, I was in such a daze. I didn't notice that the excavator had cut through the sprinkler lines buried in my lawn until

when my school finally settled down and I had time to charge my sprinkler system for the first time. I dug up my lawn by myself until I got frustrated and called
Denver Excavators Provider Name Locked
to voice my frustration. I didn't expect
Denver Excavators Provider Name Locked
to do anything about the sprinklers, I just wanted to tell them that I was frustrated about having to dig up my yard again.

I was directed to the company president,

, who listened to my concerns. He told me that when a sewer job is done in the winter, generally they cannot save the sprinkler system because the ground is too hard to dig into with shovels. I told him that I understood.

could tell that I was exhausted from working for days on the sprinklers and he stated that he really wanted to help me out. He offered to send someone out to help me dig up and repair the sprinkler lines. The next day I received a call telling me that someone was coming over to help me. A polite and knowledgeable plumber met me and helped me for 4 hours to dig up and repair several damaged sprinkler lines. Then on top of all this,

gave us a movie gift card. I've felt like my hard work was rewarded after a few trips to the movies.

I want to thank

We used Apex for some small interior plumbing problems, including capping a leaking shower and repairing a sewer drain.
Denver Excavators Provider Name Locked
always did a good job and generally came when he said he would. There were some minor communication issues between us, him, and the administrative assistant at Apex, but they were always resolved. We also used Apex for replacing a lead water main to our house with copper. We received multiple quotes before choosing them, and they were at or below all of them. The crew that came did a great job. They had some big problems getting the line out using their standard methods and ended up having to stay many hours past when they intended to use other techniques. The foreman for the project was very good with updating us and apologizing for the delay. At one point, we saw the absolute mess in our basement - but there was hardly any evidence they had been there by the time they came back the next day to clean up. I anticipate we will be using them for any future plumbing needs.

My 90 year old clay sewer line needs cleaned every couple years due to roots, so I had a ?rooter? company come out to cable the sewer line. They offered a free camera inspection so see if they got all the roots and to see if there was any line damage. Camera inspection showed several places in the line that appeared damaged and were about to ?cave in?. The company that told me that I needed the whole sewer line to be replace which would be $9000-20000, depending how they did it since it went under a driveway and went about 15 feet into a busy street. Other quoted came in from 7000-13000, but they were just quoting for the replacement of the line.

urged me to get a second opinion or at the very lease get the sewer line scoped again to see if he could save me some money on only replacing the place that needed it. He directed me to

at Pipe
Denver Excavators Provider Name Locked
, a very knowledgeable and honest guy, who showed me that the ?damaged? and ?caving in? spots were actually places they used to dig down and break into the top part of the clay pipes to clean the lines before they had the equipment of today. The holes were properly covered and this is very typical for this era house and line. He saw nothing on his inspection that indicated that I needed any work done. I am very thankful to

for having me get this second opinion. Also, his quote to get the line replaced was also the best one that I received too, before we found out that nothing needed to be done. When it comes time to do plumbing work in the future, you can be sure that I will call him first thing!
