Saint Paul Excavators Reviews

"Grant Utilites did an excellent job. They were here on time, used some type of boards or metal plates to protect my yard, did a fantastic clean up job and completed the job without any hitches. The owner was there on the job, was very professional and patient, he answered all my questions and both he and his crew allowed me to

them while they working. I will recommend them to anyone who needs sewer repair and would use them again in heartbeat."

did a fantastic job from start to finish. I would definitely use them again, and in fact, plan to in the future.

The positive experience started with the initial phone call to the receptionist,
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
. I had two priorities. The first was achieve a dry basement. The second was to simply to find an honest contractor, one that would do what they said they would do - which is very rare. When I told
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
my priorities, she was very reassuring.

That evening
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
Gehan called and we met the next day to review the job. I was really impressed with the way she listened to what I wanted. All along the goal was to achieve a dry basement and she never lost sight of that. I liked the way she didn't try to divert me away from the main goal. The next day,
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
took
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
to the site and he suggested more solutions for achieving a dry basement.

Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
was amazing, very knowledgeable and accommodating. When he mentioned building up the window wells with treated wood, I balked and said I'd rather have something more permanent and classy and that I could do it myself. I suggested using stone. With that suggestion, he offered to drop off some wall stone, adhesive/sealant and even to loan me a stone cutting saw. When he arrived, he explained how to
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
out the stone, cut it and apply the sealant. He even helped me move the air conditioner to gain better access to the east window well. Due to his helpful advice I was able to build up the window wells in about three hours so everything was ready when they arrived a few days later.

They accommodated my schedule and even bumped up the date so things would be done before the next down pour. The crew, including
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
, arrived when they said they would and did what they said they would - only more.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
included a few "extras" without charge - like putting left over river rock in the window wells and filling in a depression with left over sod. The crew did a great job and they were all done by noon.

Another thing I really appreciated was the follow up when
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
came in for payment. He went over everything they did and explained why they did it. All the while, the whole goal was always to achieve a dry basement. When I mentioned that I was going out of town for a few days right away, he even offered to stop by and water the sod - for free. Throughout the job,
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
and the crew maintained a pride in workmanship that is nearly absent in most contractors.

I and my neighbors have been burned by incompetent and dishonest contractors, so a healthy skepticism is always present. However, I'm happy to report that
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
will restore your confidence in contractors.

"After having repeated sewer backups, we decided to repair/replace the sewer line at our 1941 house through the City of
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
's program which allows you to pay for the repairs over 20 years. We contacted several contractors for bids. The majority of solutions proposed involved digging up our front lawn and possibly the street in order to 1) replace the line completely or 2) jam 4" PVC into the existing 6" clay tile line.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
offered CIPP piping which could be installed with only a hole in the floor - saving us landscaping costs - and one heck of a big mess.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
from
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
came and gave me the quote, he was on-time and explained the options clearly -- very nice guy.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
emailed me the quote and discussed the options with me some more on the phone. After awarding them the work, they came out and cleaned the line, videoed the line and prepared for the CIPP install. The crew was very nice, and kept the work area very clean for a very messy job. The installation of the CIPP the next day when extremely smoothly. They were onsite the majority of the day while the piping cured but hung out in their trailer parked on the street. When they were done, they patched the concrete floor and cleaned up. The concrete patch was not the best I have ever seen but is functionally fine. Billing and the paperwork with the city went fine. I have to say they were one of the easiest contractors I have ever worked with. I would definitely recommend them.

"Our house is undergoing major renovation and in the middle of all this work, we find out unexpectedly that the main sewer line has failed and is in need of complete removal and replacement.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
is the owner and came out to do the bidding on the work. He was on time, very courteous, respectful, and professional. He truly knows his work and business and he answered all our questions and concerns to our complete satisfaction. We decided to have his company do the work because we felt completely comfortable with their experience and abilities.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
made such a huge and unexpected project go so smoothly and seamlessly every step of the way. Once the project was begun,
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
was on hand throughout to make sure the project went well. His employees were very courteous and professional as well, so when he had to step away for a period of time, we were very comfortable. (We stayed at the house while the work was being done). The work itself was to take 3 or 4 days, but it was completed in 1 1/2 days to our complete delight. And, they were glad to answer any questions as the work was being done when we didn't understand what was taking place. We wish all other contractors that work on people's homes cared as much as this company does about the customer and the work being done.

"Overall, quite well.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
was always very prompt, and we felt like he listened to us and wanted us to be happy with the work. We knew we wanted to reconfigure the bathroom and thought this would mean moving a wall.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
came up with another plan that did not require moving a wall that we are very happy with.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
(lead carpenter) was very pleasant and always cleaned up well. He kept us informed on what would be happening when. The quality of work of the subcontractors varied, but was mostly pretty good. Our biggest issue was with the sheetrock taping. We felt like the work quality was poor and was not adequately supervised -- we needed to point out big gouges and rough spots that should have been obvious to anyone who does this for a living. The problems were fixed after we pointed them out. In general, our biggest complaint was that we felt like errors would not be fixed unless we pointed them out. Attention to detail was sometimes lacking."

"I was very impressed with the work
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
and his crew did.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
called me right back and came out a couple of days later and we discussed what I was looking to do. He had a couple of very good suggestions, such as putting the patio out front. He came back about a week later with a well detailed plan showing everything they would do, including the types of plants with the prices. They came out to start the work 3 weeks later on a Wednesday and were done with everything in three days. The crew was very professional and polite to me and my family and answered any questions I had. They cleaned up every night and warned me of areas to be careful of so no one got hurt. They installed a circle within the paver patio that looks great and everyone is very impressed by it. They know what they are doing!"
A
"Perfect. They were on time, professional, and very good with the equipment. They were careful not to cause damage but were very quick handling the equipment. There were no breakdowns or delays."

"Great.

did the demo and eave repair himself, then contracted with a roofer to patch the roof where the squirrels chewed through and contracted with the stucco repair people to patch the stucco."

"A very professional experience beginning to end. Grant was prompt with an estimate, which came in at less than half the other estimate we received. In fact, he tried to talk us out of the sewer replacement, explaining that it wasn't necessary yet. We went ahead for peace of mind, efficiency of doing both at once. Scheduling was easy, and although it got delayed, Grant was courteous and professional about it and I was able to reschedule without major inconvenience (although I did knock him down from A to B on the punctuality rating because of it). Most of the work was completed on the one-day schedule, as estimated, but Grant's crew encountered a problem with the pitch of the sewer line, which required a second day's work. That did require another $200, but the explanation was credible (he showed me exactly what he was talking about), so I had no qualms about it."

"I had contacted one other person to do the work.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
's bid was $1000 cheaper than the other bid. The first bid was only to slope the dirt away from the house and to add edging, widow wells and rock.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
?s bid included all of that and also working the yard to drain all water away from the house.
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
came out on time; he set to work quickly by installing the window wells. He then had to tear out a small retaining wall, and to raise the central air conditioner unit up a foot. Then he removed the patio pavers under the A/C unit. Then he got his
Saint Paul Excavators Provider Name Locked
Cat and trimmed the slope away from the house. He finished up by building up the dirt around the house, placing the edging, plastic, and rock. When he was finished the job looked incredible! He cleaned up after himself.
