Not the cheapest option.
Did a good job at what they do.
Tried to diagnose a problem with a sewer back-up. They wanted to tear up our yard when we didn't even know what the problem was. Their price was fine for that work, I just didn't want to spend the money if we didn't need to. It turns out after putting a clean out in alone, the problem was on the city end anyway. Glad I didn't tear up my yard.

he was very professional but friendly, even went so far as to remove a couple of trees for us after the system was finished. I would highly recommend him and would use him again if the need arrives.

They were punctual, respectful, careful about our wiring and plumbing, and made sure to clean up and answer all related questions.

had said that all nails and screws would be removed from the basement, and while it took a lot of extra time, the guys kept to their word and took them all out. We are really happy that we went with
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
and will likely be using him the the future.

TERRIBLE! Run for your life! This guy says he knows how to do things & does not. He describes a job at the outset, and then doesn't do it at all the way he originally described. Instead of hand digging a trench to install the drain, he dug up my entire back yard, side yard, and damaged the front yard with his bobcat. once the yard was a sea of mud, I had to let him continue till it was covered up just to have a somewhat serviceable yard for my dogs to use.
He didn't put gravel around the pipe, never covered up the original t-pipe he put in where the water would originate, and then didn't daylight the drain pipe. He buried it, so it doesn't actually exit. Then, when he was supposed to
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
the sod - he let it sit on his trailer till it was half dead. By the time he went to
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
the sod in the yard, he never leveled the yard. He laid sod over a sea of mud that had large balls of dirt everywhere. It's like walking on moon rocks. Every time I asked about it - he said it would settle . . . .I now have a totally uneven yard, damage, and pooling water in many places where it didn't pool before. Then entire job needs to be re-done. At the end he left his huge trailer in my driveway for days. I had to threaten him to get him to remove it. I never want to see this guy again.
He says his work is "guaranteed" . . .really? He doesn't know what he's doing in the first place, so how could he possibly fix the job he botched? He has no business saying he knows anything about landscaping or drainage. He's a total imposter, posing as a contractor.

did an amazing job! He did exactly what I wanted - clearing the undergrowth and saving the trees. I could not be more pleased with his work.

We live on a mountain with a switchback in the drive. This is one of the few septic services with a small track that can manuever the tight curve.
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
at the office was very knowledgeable and informative and they were able to schedule us quickly. The serviceman was courteous and able to provide great information on keeping the roots cleaned out . He was on time and provided great service. We will definitely use
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
again.

They contacted me to set up a time to come to my house. 2 guys came with a truck and they walked around the yard with me so I could identify all the "junk" I wanted removed. They got to work and picked up everything. It was rainy day but they worked anyway.

Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
and seven other
septic system installers were provided a drawing and specifications for a
septic system I had designed and gotten approval to install from
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
County.
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
’s proposal was in line with the other proposals I received with in a few
hundred dollars. I ask
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
to come to the site to review the project as I did
with all the other contractors on the bid list. He came and reviewed the
project with me. After I had made sure he understood the breadth and scope of
the project, I ask him for an estimate of when he could start the job and how
long he estimated it would take to finish the job. After I satisfied my self he
could to the job, I as him if he wanted to change his proposal. He said the
price he had given me was a good price and he did not change the proposed price
to the install the system.

started the job within
the period he said he would and completed it within the time he said it would
take to complete the work. I am a registered professional engineer in Texas
with experience in designing and installing equipment. I know the difference
between right and wrong with regard to this type of work. As I had designed the
system, I wanted to make sure it was installed exactly as it was shown on the
drawings and the specifications were followed as written. I am very aware some
contractors want to rush in, slam the job in, and run away as soon as possible
with your money in their pocket.

did not work like this on my project. One
thing I noted was
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
did the work himself. He did not stand around and direct
the work of others or assign work for others to do and then leave and stay gone
for indeterminate periods of time. The project was installed as per the
drawings and the specifications were followed. I was on-site the entire time
the project was being installed and there was never a cross word.
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked

conducted himself as a professional and knows what he is doing.

The highest complement I can
give a person who has done work for me is to answer the question of whether I
would have him do another project for me in the future or would I recommend him
to my friends. The answer to both those questions is a strong YES. I would hire
him again with no hesitation and I would definitely recommend him to my friends
and family if they should be looking for someone to do this type of work.

This was the second project that
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
was hired for. The reason
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
was rehired to do work that no other contractor seemed to want to take on was because the company delivers what it says it will. The first project was an extensive drain tile system with permeable pavers and a french drain, which has provided a beautiful place to entertain as well as much needed management of a high water table. And when
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
encountered issues with the high water table, they researched and came up with a plan - a plan that became the solution we had been searching for going on 6 years.
On both projects,
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
was upfront about changing conditions of the project and gave us the information necessary to make a decision. At no point was there a feeling that
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
was doing anything other than respecting us and the financial constraints of the projects. It is impossible to expect a bid to always be perfect down to the last penny, however
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
makes a concerted effort to do just that and when they cannot - you will know why.
When
Cortland Excavators Provider Name Locked
finishes a project, they clean up the worksite and leave it as they found it so there is no delay in your enjoyment. There is not doubt that this is a company that is choosing to do business the right way - respecting clients - and should be supported for it.
