has not responded to any of my messages. As a result, unless
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
is dead, I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy.
Good work
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
! You've really ticked off a potential customer! Bad work I can accept, but unresponsiveness to a potential customer is un forgiveable behavior from anyone who claims to be a business! If you don't want the business you could at least return my messages and tell me to shove it!

Many landscaping companies quoted me $2000+ to do the job, but couldn't give details and seemed unsure about what they were doing. Companies that the neighbors have hired in the past have only made the driveway worse, so I was hesitant to hire someone who seemed unsure. That was completely different when I contacted
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
and Excavting. He knew what he was talking about- knew what size of rock and how much we would need, and even removed all the old gravel to relevel everything- something no previously hired company had done. Due to all of the problems in the past, I waited to write the review until the driveway handled a winter- and it handled it great. There are no potholes and everything is as it was when he did the work.
Hiring him was

as well- he communicated great about a date and time, was able to get out there quickly before the ground froze, and was very professional. I would highly recommend him!

Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
and
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
were prompt and conscientious, as well as knowledgeable about the other plumbers bidding for the work. The selling point was their bid itself, which was the most detailed appraisal of the project, and included the work they did on the pipe to ascertain the initial problem. Best of all, they offered a maximum price for the project, not just a baseline. Even with all of that, they were still flexible with price, knocking money off to beat the competition. They worked efficiently, cleaned up after themselves, and offered no surprises.
They cared about the job, not just getting it, but doing it well.

The job was done perfectly.
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
and his crew showed up on time and carefully removed a 550
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
tank buried 8 feet deep in my back yard. They back-filled the area and graded with quality black dirt and didn't damage any of the nearby trees or fence that weren't directly over the tank. They took soil samples, had them tested for leakage and returned the results promptly.

Sales rep came to take a look at the job in May after we purchased an Angie's List coupon. We agreed on a
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
date for the job, but it had to be postponed a couple times because of the hot weather. We're mostly satisfied with the end result, but the crew could have been a lot cleaner than it was, and the details aren't impressive (edges that aren't straight, sloppy sides).

The project went exactly as expected & I have no complaints. We share a driveway with the neighbors and this posed access challenges to keeping everyone happy--
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
was able to work with neighbor's vacation plans in order to minimize disruption to them. I am very satisfied with both the quality of the work & the price paid. We plan on using this company again for other construction projects on our home.

He removed the driveway but the draintile was installed incorrectly and backed up all around the foundation of the house when I put a hose in it. After I asked him correct this matter he basically took his toys and went home and never completed grading the front yard. He refused to acknowledge the draintile was installed incorrectly and I had to dig the whole thing up myself to give the system the correct pitch so it wouldn't back-up next to the house. I had to hire another contractor to bring over a bobcat and finish the work he refused to do in the front yard. When I refused to pay the final portion of the bill in full he threatened to put a

on the client's house if I did not pay.

Very unprofessional.

Even if his bid is the lowest, I would strongly advise against hiring this guy. Nick is the worst I have encountered in many years of hiring contractors.

Initial contact was great and we were confident that the job would be done to our expectations in a timely manner. We wished it could have been a better experience, but we wanted to keep our existing very old garage and that posed challenges to the job. The scheduled start date told to us was not followed through on, delaying the project for another week and then delayed another week more due to the heavy rainfall. We were not told early on that they were not going to plan on showing up on the scheduled day, so we actually waited for them all day. We had to call them to try and find outwhat happened with the no-show. The actual worker for the job showed up in a timely fashion the following week and worked alone so progress was very slow. We were told that it would all be wrapped up in a week, but with the rain delay, that would not happen. Part of the job included reinforcing the structure, in this case they sistered new wood to old roof rafters. When they said that they were coming in to start framing we thought they meant that they would actually add more to help the roof- not just adding 2x4s to the existing 2x4s on the sides of the garage.) There is some added support to the roof, and if they had more than one guy doing the heavy lifting, we might of gotten what we had envisioned. The bottom 3-4 strips of siding were removed and we wanted it to be replaced (with something that matched the rest of the siding of course) and just wanted to know the cost but they couldn't get back to us and never did and just put green treated siding up because it was what they had planned. The worker showed up in the morning to explain that the plywood was going on and we got him to stop and get a hold of the guy who could tell us costs but the guy never followed through to tell us any costs or any other options to the ugly treated ply. The actual concrete work looks great but having been home to walk though with the inspector, we sensed some disapproval with regard to the concrete contacting the wood. Only time will tell how well it holds up. Before we hired
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
, we talked to another friend who just built a new 1-car garage the month before and he spent the same price as us. Other vendors we contacted did not want to do this job unless they could tear our garage down and just build new. The cost would not be much more to build new but we stuck to our plan of saving the structure because we believe that newer materials can sometime be of
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
quality than old.
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
wanted to take on the job, but through the process that sentiment seemed to fade. We paid what they wanted and when they wanted and are not the sort to
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
and distact the work during the process- which should be a really desirable trait in a client. We just wanted the same quality of work they would want in their own home and I don't think we got it.

We were awed by how hard they worked!
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
was a great communicator and wonderful to deal with. He had a dedicated work crew who respected him ( he worked along side) and worked their butts off. The drainage problem was above and beyond and probably lost them money as the ground was extremely hard and needed to be hand dug because of the location. This review is 2 years late as we stopped Angie's List. But every time I look at the driveway or we have a downpour and no water comes in the basement I am thankful for the work they did. Two years out and everything is great! I have rejoined and I need to write this now. My wife and I have had a lot of work done on our old house by different professionals throughout the years but we have never been as satisfied as we were ( are ) with
Minneapolis Excavators Provider Name Locked
and his company. I am sorry that I am only getting to this now. Thanks you! Is there a higher score than A???
