was very thorough in explaining his estimate for the basement drainage work, including descriptions of alternative approaches. We opted for the full interior perimeter drain pipe which we considered the "sure fire" solution to ground water into the basement. The crew jackhammered a strip of concrete around the basement, installed a 4" drain pipe, and connected the pipe into our existing sump with an existing sump pump. I liked that he "tunneled" the drain pipe under the furnace.
The work was done quickly and efficiently. We are very happy with the work. Since the new drainage system was installed our basement has stayed dry, even after some very major periods of wet weather.

We called several times to see if this highly rated Angie's List provider was interested in bidding on a sewer line replacement. We left messages on their voicemail--they don't return calls.
We had also used Angie's List messaging service last year for a new sewer line install job and they never responded to that either.

The job went extremely well and

left my yard in surprisingly good condition. It was a very challenging project as there was a gas line and sump line to work around and there was only 5 feet between the house and property line. They discovered that my fireplace foundation was very shallow.

English thoughtfully solved all of the issues and did not charge me extra. I am very happy that I hired this extremely experienced and reputable company.

was very pleasant and easy to talk to. He look at the size and depth of my pool and gave me an estimate to properly remove and fill in the pool so that I don't run into foundation issues in the future. He did send me the quote on email. At this point I am just waiting to make sure it financially makes sense to move forward with this project, but will keep in touch with

if/when we decide to move forward.

I REALLY wanted to "like" this company and give it a good review. And I have tried repeatedly to communicate with them and asked repeatedly for them to return & fix the problems. Unfortunately, at this point they are not being responsive to my requests. So I think people need to be aware of my situation so they can make an informed decision regarding providers, particularly if they have a water problem. The work was performed as stated above.

and his crew came in and got the work done as stated. They were prompt and polite, and when the work was finished I thought that would be the end of my problem. And that is when my problems went from bad to "just as bad". Apparently
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
misjudged the amount of water which was being discharged from the sump pump, because the overflow valve was constantly churning out large amounts of water, and large amounts of water are coming out the end of the pipe as well and being discharged into my neighbors yard and up against her house. I have notified
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
numerous times regarding this issue. He has sent crews out several time to try to address the problem with minor "solutions" which are not fixing the problem. The water from the overflow valve was so forceful that it dug a large hole down into the ground. Their initial solution to that was to fill in the hole & put a small plastic piece there for the water to land in. Then the force of the water caused the plastic piece to tilt towards my house & spill water over up against my house again. Next thing they did was to cap the overflow pipe off, which defeats the purpose of having the overflow spout in the first place, so now if the line becomes clogged my basement will flood. They also tried putting a small plastic popup thing on the end of the line. I don't quite understand how that was supposed to help other than it was supposed to help regulate the water discharge from the end of the pipe some. It does not work. I will upload pictures if necessary so people can see the swamp that is still in my yard and now in my neighbors yard too. I called
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
last week & told him something HAS to be done & that moving the swamp from my yard to my neighbors yard is NOT acceptable to me (or to her).
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
stated that he would be out Monday or Tuesday to figure out a "fix" for my problem. He did not show up. I called him yesterday & left a message & he has not returned my call. I just left a message for a second time. The original $3,425.00 I paid was NOT a "cheap fix" for me and I trusted this company to come out and do a good job and stand by their work. They have failed to do so. I am really hopeful that
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
is still going to contact me and actually fix this mess, but if not I think my next step is going to have to be the "Better Business Bureau" and/or an attorney... :-(

I awarded the job to
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
March 20. They called to schedule, and were finishing up a job in the area and could begin Monday March 24 and asked to park their equipment in front of my house over the weekend. I had taken off work, and was concerned that no underground utilities had been marked prior to Monday morning. There was a flurry of activity before the start time and everything was marked. The

crew laid plywood to pile the dirt, and began digging.

and

did excellent work. When unplanned problems happened they knew what needed to be done. They dug up the SDR-35 and replaced approximately 45 feet of sewer line with new Schedule 40 PVC pipe, fittings and two-way cleanout. Two sections of the sidewalk were removed, and will be replaced by

when the gravel settles. The sewer line was connected to the main sanitary sewer line in the street the same day. Tree roots had infiltrated the original sewer line causing most of the problems. The new pipe was bedded in #8 stone. After the sewer inspection the entire line was covered with #8 stone and the trench backfilled. Use of the plywood kept the yard from getting muddy. The crew did a good job cleaning up.

It was a pleasure to deal with professionals like

Delaby and
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
Guard and the rest of their crew.
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
Delaby came out to our home shortly after we contacted
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
and we went over what we wanted to do and asked for some suggestions from him. He had
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
Guard come out then and do a walk around with us and wrote down what we wanted and made suggestions on some things he saw that we hadn't thought of, and then went back and
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
up a a Landscape Design for us to look over and make any changes that we wanted. We were able to make changes and add a couple of things and within a week, they had a crew out here working. Their crew is knowledgable, hard working, promptly at work early in the morning and stay until evening. They always clean up in the evening before leaving, blowing dirt, dust and mulch off of the driveway, sidewalks and patios. It was nice having people come and be working when they said they would be there and not come late and drag a project out for 3-4 weeks. We had 3-4 plants not make it through the winter, which they replaced, and a couple of lights quit working and they promptly came out and replaced those too. I definitely would recommend them.

Wonderful!
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
is a true professional. I called
Indianapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
and initially received his voicemail but he called me back within minutes. He was able to get to the job within a couple days. He worked late on a Friday to get job completed. Job was more difficult due to being under a asphalt drive but

cut into the drive and repaired the damaged drive. I would recommend

We had an oil odor in our house and discovered oil in our sump pump. Apparently many years ago our house had used oil for heat and a oil tank near the front of our house was buried. Apparently the underground the tank must have rusted somewhere and the remaining oil leaked.

removed the remaining oil, filled the tank with sand and capped it with concrete. He was a pleasure to work with. Very responsive and hard working. We are very grateful to have found him because it seems there is a shortage of people who do this line of work.
