Los Angeles Excavators Reviews

came in and looked at our problem, then gave us a creative beautiful plan to fix and improve on what we had. He and his crew were on budget and on schedule performing the work. Would definitely recommend them."

"The dig and 2 1/2 day job (excluding a 1 day wait for the inspection) was done well and had to take into account sprinkler lines in the area of the dig. Things were cleaned up appropriately on completion. After the holes had been dug, a 8" longitudinal crack was discovered in the clay pipe leading from our property's sidewalk into the city's main sewer. This was not noted in the original video inspection which was disappointing since the field of view was very clear as we had previously had the pipes cleaned. I was surprised that the price estimate for lining an 8 foot section of this pipe was over $4,000 despite that there was no need to do any more digging. This seemed excessively pricey for what is a 1 day job. We decided against this repair."

"These guys were great. Totally professional from start to finish. All the workers were respectful of the property. I felt very comfortable leaving the workers at the house when I had to be gone. Time commitments were kept. I actually had fun watching the work and learning how it was done. I'd never seen pavers installed. Despite the need for tractors and large trucks delivering pads of stone and piles of sand, there were no complaints from the neighbors. Clean-up was thorough. The person in charge of the project as well as the workers had some great suggestions that I incorporated into the project. There were a few times when there were some communication glitches. However, when I saw a problem and told the head guy about it, he never once argued with me or tried to change the subject from the problem at hand to a pointless debate about who was right and who was wrong. Instead, as soon as I pointed out a problem or a miscommunication, the immediate response from

was to find a way to get things the way I wanted them.

was the lowest of four bids I received. I am so glad I chose them. I am far more delighted with the finished product than I had anticipated. There were a few fine tuning and touch up items I asked them to look at about a week AFTER I had paid in full.

"My husband and I had not done any kind of termite work since we moved into this house in 1988. Somewhere in the 50 s the residents had turned the front porch into a bedroom, and when the termite inspector looked at it he informed us that the damage would require extensive carpentry/repair. We called Shai
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
to have a look at it, since he put a new roof on our house last year and we were very happy with his company at that time. Unfortunately, he showed us that the way this porch had been made into a room was totally
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
-moused; the vertical supports were built directly onto the dirt, which encouraged enough termite activity that there was basically nothing holding the walls up besides the old stucco! So
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
sat down with me at our kitchen table and we brainstormed a plan for a new room, better than the old one which he would demolish. He even figured out how to put a small bathroom in there, which is great because this house had only one bathroom up to this point! I wanted a shower in it too, and we designed a custom shower which his tile-man installed more beautifully than I would have imagined! All of the subcontractors and workers were awesome.

"I am so lucky, and so grateful. My experience could not have been better. These folks respond immediately to every question. They have been so helpful. The guys they employ are incredibly good. They have great senses of humor and a perfect work ethic. (The guys from another company who installed our elevator said they never saw better work). I can't say enough good things about them. Really. It's been a dream come true. Anyone considering building from scratch in L.A. should talk to these guys."
A
"Very well. Demolition and removal of debris completed on schedule. Soil compaction satisfied soil engineer. Soil imported and compacted as expected. Graded flat to customer's satisfaction."

"There is not to much to say here on this company. They did a good job. They showed up on time and they stayed out of our way while at work. They seemed to be very professional and they seemed to be very nice as well. They did not make a mess in or around my home and they cleaned up anything they might have brought along. It was a pleasant experience. Nothing outrageous happened. Just kind of an average job if you ask me. I believe this cost me around $700 or so."

"The crew was efficiant, professional, and cared about doing a good job. The repiping comes with a ''lifetime guarantee'' against root infestation. They did the job originally in 2003, and, for several years, were good about coming out each year whenever the connections backed up to clear them out. This year, however, they dragged their feet, didn't return calls, and ended up not responding at all. Roto-Rooter came out immediately and, after not being able to use the shower all week, I am now back in business - $167 later. My answers for 4-6 are based on this recent experience."

"Overall, I had a great experience with
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
and
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
. Awarding a job like this is always a nightmare given the investment involved both time- and money-wise, but this job turned out well all around.
Process
The process was generally smooth and easy - a couple of hiccups, but nothing major and far less than is often the case with projects such as these. I had a very clear idea of what I wanted done overall, although I was still undecided on the paver type, etc.
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
, my contact through the whole process, provided me with options (limited, but also based on pavers for which he could get a great deal), contributed some ideas, and ultimately was willing to work to achieve the finished product that I wanted (even when he wasn't sure I had the best idea). He also offered me access to other benefits like trade-cost sod if I wanted it (I didn't go for it but appreciated the offer), as well as suggesting things like running conduit under the patio in case I ever wanted to run electricity to the back of the yard in the future (an idea I was happy to add to the project).
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
was always available and willing to do whatever needed to be done to make sure I was happy and the job went smoothly. He checked in with me regularly and visited the site a few times to keep an eye on the process, and the foreman and crew that performed all the actual work were professional, polite and did a pretty good job cleaning up after the project.
Price
Price-wise,
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
weren't the cheapest, but they certainly weren't the most expensive, either. I felt much better about awarding the job to them based on my interactions with various parties, and feel that it was worth paying that little bit extra for the added peace of mind (and I still feel that way after the fact). After a less successful project earlier this year, that level of trust is worth every extra penny. Granted, you don't know if the trust is warranted until the project is under way, but I was more than happy with how it worked out for me this time.
Quality
It's been a couple of months now since everything was installed, and so far, so good. I love having a great patio to relax in of an evening, and the widened driveway has made a huge difference. Everything still looks good and seems to be working as intended. I think there may be one or two very small pooling areas where the drainage isn't ideal, but again, nothing major at all and not something that I'm worried about (and I won't really know until we get into a
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
season).
Hiccups
Apart from just a few small items along the way, everything went smoothly, and even those items were handled quickly and successfully as follow-ups after the job. There was only one bigger issue that came up, and I'm only mentioning it to illustrate how it was handled, not to position it as a problem. During the project, the crew caught the Bobcat on my driveway gate and warped it/collapsed it. That sounds like a big deal (and to an extent, it is), but without any hesitation, they immediately got a separate
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
and crew to come out to fix everything and refinish the gate so that the damage was completely reversed. While I won't say it's *exactly* the same as it was, you'd never notice the difference, and I appreciated that there was no question that they were at fault and it would be fixed to my satisfaction.
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
made a point of guaranteeing me multiple times that they would do whatever needed to be done to make it right. And more importantly, they did.
Overall
I'd have no hesitation recommending
Los Angeles Excavators Provider Name Locked
, and would be happy to hire them again for future projects!
