Sample Reviews


First of all, found provider on Angie's List, read reviews and contacted
. Response was immediate. From the beginning, it was obvious
knew exactly what needed to be done, received the estimate quickly. Within two weeks (waiting for rain to stop and the tile supplier to deliver the tile!) the job was completed in one full day! It was amazing what he and a coworker accomplished in one, hot day.
definitely has the equipment AND knows how to use it! He was punctual and preplanned the job to have equipment/gravel/tile delivered prior to starting the job and was ready to go the next day. We have more
work to be completed and I am done looking for other providers, we found a great one!

He arrived on time and after more digging than planned he found the sewer line and put his camera in to determine where the break was. The line was over 7 feet deep, which is more than usual, but the real problem was the huge amount of large limestone chunks
that had to be removed in addition to dirt and tree roots.
His excavator is plenty powerful and small enough to go between most houses. He also has a Bobcat loader and dump truck.
He stuck to his bid even though it took longer than planned. The big hole was backfilled and leveled out nicely, ready for a little raking and some grass seed.
In the past
has also delivered gravel to other of my properties. His truck is small enough that it should not damage driveways.

Excavating reviews in Reston


It went well. It was hard and I understand how this type of work is hard to estimate. We also changed the scope a bit, so that's understandable. But we should have probably kept a better tab on the bill as we were progressing.
He does the work safely and he communicates why he's doing various things.
While we met the objective, I will say that it didn't go as I imagined... but then again, I'm not an excavator. I really thought we'd dig a narrow ditch with a temporary retaining wall... it ended up being a huge ditch for safety reasons (so it wouldn't cave. I also did not realize when we got the estimate that removing rocks would be extra. That makes sense, but in hindsight I would have thought that I'd have been given a heads up. After all,

is a Lancaster county native, so I'm guessing that we'd be quite likely on a limestone ridge.

**2013** We used
Reston Excavators Provider Name Locked
for putting in a new driveway at a house we are building. They excavated the area with a bulldozer and brought in all the stone and gravel needed for the driveway in just a few hours. They were very affordable and easy to schedule the work to be done and did a good job.
**2014** We then hired

to bring loads of sand out to level the ground and make a base for where the house is to be built. Understandably, due to a wet Spring season, conditions were not favorable and this took much longer than expected. When the area finally dried up and they were finally able to come out to the property, we scheduled 8 days in advance with Pat to have multiple dump trucks shuttling sand and a bulldozer with operator to spread it out. When
Reston Excavators Provider Name Locked
arrived at our property they only had one dump truck to deliver 15 loads of sand (which would take at least all day if not longer) and no bulldozer operator to spread the sand out. My husband ended up having to run the bulldozer himself and was taken by a Trust Trucking employee to another dump truck so that he could help shuttle the sand as well.
We need to get this work done because my husband works out of town for weeks at a time which is the only reason my husband is willing to do this himself.
I am disgusted at the lack of professionalism displayed by this company.

has been affordable, but I would never recommend their services to anyone in the future.

I could not be happier with the results.
Reston Excavators Provider Name Locked
and his team exceeded all my expectation. During the the three day project he transitioned my back yard from something I was embarrassed by into something I want to show off. The fence he installed was exactly the same as one of the local big name brands but came in way, way less than their estimate. Aside from the great work that you would normally expect there were the little things that went along way.

and his crew interacted with both my neighbors making sure they were happy and touching up their sides where the project met. This was a big project which caused them some disturbances but the fact he spoke and listened to them made my life easier once the project was over. All my neighbors have commented on the great work. His crew cleaned up and left nothing behind. They even emptied some barrels of yard waste unrelated to the project for me that I had never asked for. I have four children, three of which are under eight. I had full trust and confidence having them around the kids and trusting them while no one was home.

Patio is beautiful and the job went very smoothly. They are nice people to deal with and take great pride in the work they do. We will use them again when we replace old cement walk ways in the front of our home.

called early to inform us of his arrival time. Arrived on time. We recently purchased our home and as this was the first time we had our new house septic tank pumped out
Reston Excavators Provider Name Locked
was very informative about the system and it's condition. He had to find the lid which took him no time at all and then had to dig out the lid area, which was deeper than I would have thought it should have been. He preserved much of the sod for replacement after the clean out. He then proceeded to pump out the tank and explained the tanks properties as I watched. The job was completed to my satisfaction and at the price quoted by the company. We are very happy with their service and I recommend them for this type of service. I have always had a septic system cleaned on a 2 year plan. I will be using
Reston Excavators Provider Name Locked
for this service as well as having a riser installed for future cleanouts.

I contacted him when he was on vacation, he returned my call promptly to let me know he had limited reception and would get in contact with me upon his return. When he called me next, he was actually able to come over that very same night and get all the work done that evening. He was prompt, professional, and fast, and took great care in his work to avoid gas lines and for the holes near the house. Overall a great experience and would not hesitate to use his services again.

We needed to repair and upgrade our septic system for Title 5 compliance. We solicited several bids from contractors on the town's approved septic contractor list.

was quick to respond with a proposal, and patient while we waited to hear from other contractors. While their price was not inexpensive, it was very, very significantly lower than the competition.

was able to schedule construction promptly and kept to that schedule. They worked well with the system's designer/engineer and with the town's inspector. It is a small, family-owned firm that has been doing this work for decades and it shows. The men work quickly and efficiently as a team. The quality of work is very, very good, with precise attention to blueprints and measurements. At each stage, their work was approved by the designer/engineer and inspector, with no revisions needed. The final results were excellent and our yard was beautifully re-graded and re-seeded. We got exactly what was promised and in a timely fashion.

Jr., and the others were pleasant and professional to work with and I recommend

with no reservations. (FYI, they do have a website with an email contact form, but it's easier and quicker to contact them by phone.)

Ed Gray was outstanding!
Ed's quote was consistent with three other quotes I received (even a little lower). He showed up and handled all the excavation work himself or with one other guy. Then he subconstracted the cement work, and oversaw the operations of the crew. Ed was very professional, he completed the job quickly and efficiently. The work was top notch, the gradework was perfect, the concrete was done well, without adding excess water, and he billed exactly what he quoted.
He even hand raked out the area he had excavated after he was done. Really finished the job well. I would use him again anytime I needed excavation work.
