Saint Louis Excavators Reviews

Saint Louis Excavators Provider Name Locked
came out to give us an estimate. He was very personable and knowledgeable. After getting several estimates from other companies we decided to go with Atlas based on the estimate and good reports from Angie's List and the BBB. It's difficult to comment on the quality of the work as we really won't know right away. I will say that I was happy to see the large cracks in the wall of the affected room close significantly when it was lifted to optimal elevation. The men who showed up to do the piering work were prompt, quiet (as quiet as one can be when operating heavy equipment) and worked very hard the entire time they were on the property. They put tarps on the ground prior to excavating. This was much appreciated as it saved us from having to deal with a muddy mess after the work was completed. They guy in charge of the work crew listened to us when we asked questions or voiced concerns.

, the office manager, was very professional whenever we called with questions prior to during and after the whole process.

I gave this company a B due to issues with communication between the office and the work crew. The work crew did not seem to be aware of all work specified in the contract. The contract specifically stated that Atlas would investigate and replace as necessary the vertical section of the cast iron downspout drain pipe within the excavation for Pier #3. When I went out to ask about this, the work crew had no knowledge of this and would not have investigated this drain pipe had I not asked. We were told we would not need to be home during the two days the work was being performed. My partner and I decided of our own accord that at least one of us would be home during this process. A member of the work crew did need access to the house in order to determine if the affected room was level while being elevated. If we had not been home I'm not sure how this would have been done. Lastly, the contract specified that exposed steel rebars of the concrete piles would be sealed with zinc rich paint to

oxidation.. The crew had no knowledge of this. When I showed them the contract and pointed this out they did apply paint to the exposed rebar.

This is an update. I've now dropped my overall grade of this company to a C. Shortly after the concrete was poured in November cracks formed in two areas. In March we contacted Atlas about the cracks. The owner came out looked at the area and said that they would repour the sidewalk. We said it was okay if they just fit us in when they could. Weeks went by and we didn't hear anything from them. We called and they told us they were really busy but they had not forgotten about us and that they'd be by the next week. We didn't see them the next week or the next or the next. We made another phone call to them and got the same story with similar outcome. Just a word of advice for Atlas. Promptness when doing service recovery goes a long way. It's true we did say you could fit us in when you could but we didn't realize that the wait might be three months or longer. Finally we told Atlas we were tired of waiting and insisted they finish the job right away. They then called to inform us that they'd be out the next day or the day after. The concrete was repoured two days later and so far no new cracks have formed. Again lack of communication was an issue. I think if we had received a phone call or two at some point apologizing for the delay in getting to the concrete repour we might have formed a more favorable opinion of Atlas.
"Customer service from this company is top notch. Other places could/should take lessons from

next to the house. Work was completed in one day and drain functions as it should--no more swimming pools next to my house. Highly recommended!"
"Clear description of the job; described the possible optimal findings once concrete was removed; very honest and upfront; and patient; they completed the work within days; they cleaned up every evening (it was frightening the first two days); they were helpful in moving things around the basement; the basement is now better than ever as is the front street work."

is very nice and professional. He was always very prompt when showing up to the house. It took a little extra time on the estimate b/c of flooding in the area and he was waiting on the countertop company. His employee did the work and was very professional and hard working. He did a great job on the shelving. The only problem was that the 3rd coat of mudding the drywall didn't get done initially. They were trying to save me some money by eliminating an extra day coming out to work. They are going to do this for me when they come to do the rest of the kitchen. Their rates are very reasonable. They do good work. They communicate well. They clean up after themselves. They were also very accommodating regarding my tight time line."
"After deciding to put a swale in our yard so that rain would flow properly to the street, we checked Angie's List for recommendations. We found

came to the house and estimated the job, providing several good suggestions on design. The job was scheduled for 1 week later and it was completed on time. I was unexpectedly out of town during the work but phone communication worked very well. The finished patio is beautiful and very professional looking. I found

to be friendly, knowledgeable, professional and responsive. He was a pleasure to work with."
"While the plumbing was ok, we guess and the job was complicated by additional work needed, they seemed unskilled in the ground work, though they came back to try fix it and the sidewalk they broke. It was just a long & messy experience. Hired a landscaper to rebuild the yard."
"WOW!! This company was an incredible experience! I thought I was in a "time-warp". Rich is VERY professional, helpful, out to please the customer, and his crew was fantastic! They started excavating one day, finished the second day, and on the second day upon finishing the excavating, set up our footing forms and poured them using his pump and were done by 2 pm! Next day, they set up on basement wall forms. Next day they poured the walls. Next day they removed all the huge trees they had bulldozed and finished the swale and grating. WOWZER! AND THE JOB WAS PERFECT!!!! To me, it was expensive, but it is perfect and I just don't know today's costs. I didn't want to quote the price as everyone's would be different but the amount field was a required fill. If you need a perfect job, give him a call!!!"
"Worst company I have ever delt with. At first, they gave me their bid and replied to my inquiries while I was told the job was moving forward. They said they needed half their money. They drove out to pick up my check for half due (red flag). After that, I never heard from them. They wouldn't return my calls. The new receptionist was ''snippy.'' And, they let me down for 2 1/2 months! Finally, w/inner connections, they did the work! A warning...NEVER pay upfront, and NEVER expect this company to reply to you. Fortunately, in the end, they did the work (inner connections). Their price was tops (why we went w/them). But, they scared us so bad that we thought we were going to loose our investment($4850.00). When they removed our old house, their equipment broke down (not their fault), but again, we had to wait a day on them. I don't wish anyone ill will and hope they can make a drastic change - BUT it HAS to be DRAMATIC! Their inaptitude put building our home almost 3 months behind!"
"Back yard was in much better shape than I anticipated. Work done quickly and well. Received call when work was finished that day describing what was done. Required half of payment up front but very accommodating about payment plan for remainder."
