I called
and fully intended to have them do the job. Without my knowledge, my builder got his company out there before
could give me an estimate. In other words, his grader couldn't get out there for months, but managed to do so as soon as
promptly responded. We are not in the house right now, and I was informed of it just barely in time to cancel my appointment with
. I appreciated the promptness, the professionalism, and the courtesy of
and I have no doubt they knew what they needed to do from my phone conversations with them. It was my intention not to use the company my builder had engaged & I had told my builder (before calling
) that I didn't even want his sorry guy on my property.

I had called for an estimate and Mr.
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
promptly returned my call with an appointment to evaluate my property. He arrived on time and talked over his recommendations for installing a drainage system. Within 48 hours, I received an email with detailed plans both written and visual that laid out the installation of the system. I was impressed by the extent of information given and the thoroughness of the plan. After obtaining two other estimates with different companies, I felt the price was the most reasonable for the work provided. We scheduled a date to begin and he and his crew arrived, on time, and completed the project within two and a half days! The project included installing a trench, multiple catch drains, removal and replacement of soil, regrading around foundation, and clearing of brush. The workers were efficient and left the area neat each day. At the end of the project, I was astounded by the amount of work done in such a short time. I was even more impressed that within a couple of days of completion, the system was tested with a tremendous downpour that dumped 2 inches of rain within a couple of hours time. For the first time in 6 years, I had no flooding in my house nor water in my ventilation system! I was thrilled!! I kept going outside to check the drains and running back inside to check the house. No water! I have been so pleased. It was the best money I have ever spent. This company was prompt, courteous, thorough and experienced. They are great!

Mr.
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
gave us an estimate and reassured us that the job was possible. He arranged everything from tree removal to city permits. There was a delay due to weather. We were selling the house and needed to resolve this quickly. Mr.
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
took a long time responding to our calls and e-mails. The funds were put in escrow and he completed the job after the house was sold. Looks very nice and professional - I agree with others that he took great pains with the details and went the extra mile. You can see the driveway at 1609 Sycamore St. in

This was a foreclosed property which had fallen into rack and ruin inside and out.

used a "bobcat" to clear away unsightly trees and underbrush. Then they graded uneven areas so the property looks much better. Finally, they planted grass so the property now looks really good.

In a word the whole project could not have gone better.
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
is a talented professional with exceptional communications skills and has an eye for detail and aesthetics. He approaches the project as a challenge he wants to find the best solution for. After I explained what we wanted to accomplish and he reviewed what he had to work with, he proposed several options. After several discussions we arrived at a solution that was substantially different, and better, than any of the other six estimates we got.
We started out thinking we would have to tear out and replace all 7 steps leading up to our stoop.
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
thought at first he could essentially save and repair the existing stoop, but he did not stop there. He is an "out-of-the-box" thinker and suggested other options, most of which were lower cost than blindly tearing out and replacing everything.
We ended up with a hybrid solution that included disassembling and reconstructing most of the existing steps, tying them into the porch platform with rebar, digging under them and pouring 18" of concrete, adjusting the step heights so they are all equal, topping each step with 2 inch blue stone.
In addition, he noticed that the red brick tile platform of the porch was sagging. After inspecting it further and conferring with us, we concluded that it need to be reinforced.
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
suggested one reinforcing method and I inquired about another.
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
concluded either would do the job. The one chosen reduced the original estimate by >10%.
Initially no work was going to be done on the stoop, but we ended up covering over the entire 6"X0" platform with a 6" wide, 2" thick border of blue stone with PA field stone in the middle. The 4" X 6" poured concrete platform at the bottom of the steps and the treads of the poured concrete steps leading down to the sidewalk were finished with the same blue stone and field stone. The risers on each of the steps were faced with the same brick used in the rest of the stoop. Everything blends so well It looks like it was always a part of the house.
When we balked at starting the project until after Christmas because we had no one to do the wrought iron railings
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
said he could do them too. We quickly got two bids plus his for this work and his was the best of the three, so we let this part of the project to him too. He and his staff did the same high quality precision work on the railings and the install as they did on the rest of the project.
The mason and his helper did superb work. Every brick and mortar line matches the brick and mortar of the original steps and stoop. The steps are all the same height and within Code. A new step at the bottom had to be added to accomplish this. Everything was place with precision. They worked their buns off everyday starting early in the morning and working until dark, sometimes after dark. They were both friendly and always had time to answer questions and cleaned up each day before they left. I might add that the project was completed on time and on budget.
We could not be happier with the results. The front stoop has gotten rave reviews from many the neighbors and friends, several of whom have inquired about having K Squared redo their
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
too. Our son is an accomplished architect with his own firm in LA. He has an eye for detail and was impressed by the look and quality of the finished product. My best friend who is a general contractor in NY for almost 30 years and the local contractor who is replacing our front entry door also gave this completed project a "thumbs up".
We are planning on calling

to give us an estimate on a landscaping project we are close to starting.

First, they told me I had to have the sweet gum tree next to the tank taken down and killed. Then they scheduled a day to come and dig up the line. They arranged for the county inspector to come by as well, which is necessary for a septic field repair. It was Buck and
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
who came out to do the work.
They found 25 feet of line which was stuffed with tree roots. They dug this all up and replaced it with solid pipe, and the flooded septic tank began to flow right away. Good news, since this means the rest of the field is OK for now.
One thing I really appreciated was all the good advice Buck gave me about keeping my system going. I need to add copper sulphate in March and again in August to keep all roots at bay, and have it pumped out every few years. Also, I needed to take out 2 more sweet
Durham Excavators Provider Name Locked
which were in the field and would have now grown into the freshly unblocked septic lines. He was able to answer all my questions about how to take care of this system and also to patiently explain why, which is important to my (always inquiring) mind.
The best news is that, if I follow his advice, my system may well last another 30 - 40 years. I was relieved to have the problem solved. I'd heard stories of having to spend $1,000 to fix septic systems, so I was glad it cost me so much less than this.
