They were great.
Johnston Excavators Provider Name Locked
came early and explained everything to me. They worked a long hot day and finished in one day. I was worried that our old house might have problems with doors and windows but they were very careful. Obviously they are
very experienced.
A couple of days later I was having trouble getting an exterior door to lock. They came right over and fixed it.
Very professional. Very responsive. They were very patient with my many questions.

They arrived on time and sent a camera down the line to show me the damage. Originally they thought my sewer line ran under my front sidewalk/steps but when they ran their sensor outside they discovered that it was a few feet over under my yard. Because they didn't have to remove the concrete slabs and reset them

charged us $300 less than the original estimate. They worked efficiently and explained everything every step of the way.

They returned my call on a weeknight at 9:30p. Good turn around time but too late for a business call!!! I called the next day and they said they'd call me the next week - which is the week we're in now. No call from them. Angie's List contractors are as bad or worse than any run of the mill contractors about returning calls. We have work to be done but no good workers to do it!

They did a great job. Had to dig a new trench, battling large boulders and concrete slabs. Plus, there were trees in the way which they cut and removed all debris. They moved the boulders and concrete slabs to the bottom to form a spillway for the new drain tile. Another great Angie's List contractor.

's helpers were great too. They worked hard moving rocks, tree limbs, etc plus they cut up the trees and limbs into firewood for my neighbor to use.
Their attention to detail was outstanding as the place was spic and span when they were done.

arrived when he said he would, and took the time to not only estimate and describe the job, he also gave me an education about maintenance and repair of our gravel driveway. After run-off from

cut a trench down the driveway, we had our snow-plow provider fill it in so we could use the driveway temporarily. However, they filled in the swale on the up-hill side of the driveway as well, leaving drainage worse than before. We now have a nice-looking driveway with a swale and 3 drains underneath that bring run-off safely below. AND, Mr.

We are very satisfied with the job. The crew was courteous and focused on getting the job done. The areas of the yard where the digging had taken place were groomed, reseeded and covered with straw. Everything seems to be working the way it should be.

May kept in touch about the schedule, showing up early morning on the appointed day. His son and
Johnston Excavators Provider Name Locked
the very skilled back hoe operator, were friendly, thorough, cared for their equipment and left the site roped off and secure between days. The demolition took several days with great care taken for the one wall that could have damaged a neighbor's property. As the building was taken apart the they crushed the wood and filled their trucks to the maximum, putting light weight materials under heavy ones to pack tighter.

separated out some items for salvage on his own time as noted on the itemized bill. The site was left clean and clear. At the end

and

both asked if there were other things to take care of. The neighbor requested they do a small job for him, and they willingly did, and billed separately. The detailed bill gave a clear accounting of every hour, and came in at the estimate. Extra requests were billed reasonably, and also with transparency.
I would use May again and recommend him highly!
