I am very pleased with the results of this project and everything went as planned. I would recommend this company to anyone considering their services. My job was a major project that took a year and half to prepare for and once started 7 weeks to complete with a crew working daily. Planning included learning what my options were, consulting with and gathering estimates from three companies, hiring Structural Engineers and a Geo Tech Engineer to develop site plans, going through the Seattle permitting process which required hiring a lawyer and several rounds of review for very minor corrections to the plans (8 weeks), and finally scheduling the work for the drier season. I met
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
Nolten, who was then the owner of
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, at the beginning of the entire process and selected this company based on my trust in
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
developed over this period. He is honest and has very good communication skills. He listened to my concerns and addressed every one offering several creative suggestions. I could see by working with him that he had considerable knowledge gained through his years of experience and that he was proud of the company that he helped to grow. Over this period he decided to retire and the company is now restructured as a partnership including
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
's son and senior staff who have also been with the company for 25+ years. These partners also worked on my job (

, and

), and I was impressed with their skills as well. Every day the work crew seemed happy, were well organized, good at communicating with one another, kept the site safe, and kept each other safe (e.g. took dependable scheduled breaks). Additionally they subcontracted the concrete and worked well with that crew too for 2 separate pour days. They were also very considerate of my neighbors and adjusted their work schedules to arrive a little later and break a little earlier to minimize disturbing their routines.

My husband and I were planning on building 60ft concrete retaining wall on our back yard for the past 3 years. We have researched and talked to at least five different contractors. As an architect, I always tell my clients to get at least 3 estimates. First three estimates I received were priced all over the place and didn't get the impression they know what they're doing nor priced fairly. I decided to get two more and their price came out close. I decided to use
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
at the end because the estimator,
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, left me with good confidence this company knows how to build a quality wall. I like the fact everything except concrete supply is in house. The first day of work two workers,
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, came on time and started working right away. They worked hard all day long to finish excavation on the first day. The following five days they worked right on schedule and kept the project moving. They had great work ethic whether or not their boss is watching. The final quality of the concrete wall was fantastic! We're so glad we waited long enough to find the right contractor. Thank you for your hard work.

GREAT EXPERIENCE! No job is too small or silly. Quite pleased from initial e-mail inquiry, to completion of project, and a follow-up personal phone call regarding the same. Digging in our small garden I hit a "rock." Curious enough the "rock" turned out to be a 4' x 2 1/2' concrete slab. Impossible to move and quite impossible for me to let it go, since I had a new home in mind for this vintage slab. An e-mail inquiry was sent to
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
responded. A free estimate was provided and removal was scheduled. The concrete slab was placed in its new location without a hitch, and the actual invoice was lower than the estimate. Bonus. Thank you
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
,
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, and
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
for making this a pleasant experience. You're the best!

The project took a bit longer than they had thought but they did a thorough job. The project managers were very professional, courteous and knowledgeable. The only minor complaint I have is that the work crew left some of their trash behind. I bought the crew some coffee and they left the empty cups along with some energy drink cans behind.

The work went smooth and efficiently. They even went out and got a "specialist" to oversea and help with the concrete formwork. The owner,
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, helped and negotiated a change order with the building inspector (which they had a good reputation with (it helps alot). I was impressed at how easy the crew and
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
were to work with.

This company is very good with communication, which was a breath of fresh air after dealing with contractors who never get back to you. I used their website to get in touch initially and they I'm pretty sure they responded within 24 hours, if not one day then no more than two. They have a nice & informative website with pictures of work done & pictures of the employees. They came out to do an estimate pretty quickly, within the week.
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, the owner, did the estimate & was easy to talk . He got down in the crawlspace and told me what needed to be done and gave me options where he could. He gave me a nicely detailed and itemized quote. It was not the lowest quote; but definitely not the highest. They honored the discount they offered via Angie's List. They provided me with referrals, who all had positive things to say. It was easy to schedule the work, they tend to be about 6 weeks out. There were five workers total who came out, and
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
came out to check on things the day I was there. His foreman onsite answered my questions and told me what they were doing. The job took a total of two days, which was what they bid. They did a pretty good job of cleaning everything up. They had to dig up parts of my yard and they did a pretty good job of putting it back together. They provided a ten-year warranty for labor. And they seem like a company that will be around for those ten years. Overall, I am satisfied with the work that was done. And I am using them for two more jobs. The bids on those jobs seem fair and in-line with other bids I received.

We were planning to purchase a building with foundation issues in a sensitive area.
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
gave us excellent service. He was very professional, experienced, and quickly assessed what would be required to do the work. He also referred us to other soils and structural engineers which would be required for the project and met with them at the site. Unfortunately, the purchase fell through at the end but we were sufficiently impressed that we would have had
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and Co. do the work and felt he deserved our best rating.

Company emailed me two days before the meeting to say they had to cancel since I had not provided my address. I provided my address when I booked the appointment and the least the company could have done was email or call me saying they still needed my address rather then saying that as a result of me not providing it that they had to cancel. Very unprofessional and I will not do business with them,

These guys are tight, they work well together and my project was completed exactly as I had communicated. They resolved an old water run issue that had been inherited with the house with a very
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
grading and trenching trick.
Very happy with these guys and have used their services more than once with this old house.
Their history and knowledge of the area we live in, is invaluable to the projects
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
has worked on for me. Excavators NW is very thorough and approached each project with respect and pride in their work.
Thank you Excavators NW.

Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
and his team were great! They were professional from beginning to finish and we ended up with an outstanding final product. We wanted to do a major remodel to the main floor of our house. We had some ideas about what we wanted, but didn't have anything set in stone. Out of three bids,
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
was not the least expensive, but not the most either. We ended up going with the
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
bid due to the detail in the proposal and the fact that it was easy to chat with
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
. After the first few meetings with
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
, he helped suggest vendors, engineers and review the plans that we had. He was very easy to work with and his team reflected his professionalism, while at the same time being friendly, flexible and easy to work with. We had a few surprises during the project, and after the initial bid, we decided to do some additional work. One of the larger changes was to add roof wok to the project. Due to the weather, the decision and work was very time sensitive.
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
pulled out all the stops and more than doubled his team's size in order to pull the roof, restructure (which allowed us a raised ceiling in the kitchen and bathroom) and get a new roof on before the weather turned on us. For the inside of the house,
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
an his project manager,
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
worked with us wonderfully. This was our first large remodel, and
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
's contacts and suggestions were very helpful and the subcontractors were great. Also, since this was our first major project, we didn't plan as much as we could have up front.
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
's team was very flexible with any changes or additions that we decided to include. The attitude was one of "How can we best accomplish this to give you the house that you want?", instead of "That's more work or more time, let's just take the easy way out." Our project encompassed entirely the first floor of our house. The kitchen an bathroom were completely taken down to the bare bones, even to the point of removing several layers of old flooring and bringing three rooms' floors to the same level. We removed two long sections of wall by the kitchen and staircase, which opened up the house incredibly. We added forced air heating, which required ducting to be added to service all rooms in the house. We have plans for a future remodel and addition of a bathroom upstairs, so
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
helped to run plumbing upstairs along the entire length of the house, giving us many more options for the future bathroom placement. We moved several doors around, added hardwood flooring in the main living room, kitchen and staircase.
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
's team did a stellar job with our custom woodwork requests. We gave them a description of a built in bookcase that we wanted under the stairs and the completed bookcase couldn't have come closer to what we had in our mind's eye. They also worked with is to add a custom trapezoid shaped window in the bathroom, making the space even more unique. In addition to the kitchen/bathroom/living room changes, we also turned an mostly unfinished covered porch into a newly finished laundry room. After all was finalized, we couldn't be more happy with the final product. But honestly, the pictures will tell you more than words ever could, take a look! In the end, I wouldn't hesitate to hire
Seattle Foundation Repair Specialists Provider Name Locked
again, I just hope they have time to fit me in when the time comes!
