    Forest Landscape Inc
    The project moved along in a workman like manner. The crews cleaned up daily keeping the area as clean as possible. This was a huge project so keeping it clean was more about trash and neatness. The project took 10 weeks start to finish. I am very pleased with the work that was done and the overall appearance of the completed project. I have no reservations in recommending Forest Landscape Inc. to assist you with your landscape hardscape project.

    First of all, Seth came out when he said he would and looked at everything and within two days had prepared an estimate. He was reassuring that it wouldn't be a horrendous expense or process. Today the guys came out to do the work and they were prompt, friendly and hard-working. They cleaned up after everything was completed. I couldn't ask for anything more! The whole experience was terrific.

    Work went great. They had to jackhammer into my basement floor and run a new line to replace the old sewer line. The team did so in terrible weather conditions and got us up and running as quickly as possible. They also cleaned and replaced everything as it was. I'd also like to mention that the gentleman that came out to quote was extremely professional and had solid answers to my questions. Also a solid cost. I spoke to reps with other companies during this process and none were as knowledgeable.

    Chris Cory Excavating
    Chris Cory Excavating LLC is an amazing contractor. It's a pleasure to work with a company that really cares about there clients. I've personally called Chris several times with questions. If he doesn't pick up immediately he will call you back. The communication is fantastic. They're also a very trustworthy company and always offer competitive bids. Tammie who handles all the billing is also wonderful to work with and incredibly organized. I would strongly recommend Chris Cory Excavating to anyone.

    Ryan was an excellent communicator and very patient and clear when he was at the house outlining how he would do the project. He was great about writing up a detailed bid and following up a week later. His bid was right in the middle of the bids that we got and so we opted to go with another company that was doing other houses in the neighborhood. We've been having some problems with the other company, so in retrospect, we wish we would have hired Ryan!

    Brick By Brick Waterproofing
    After tenants moved out of our rental we found that one of the basement walls was cracked and leaking water. I contacted Stephen and sent a picture and we arranged to have Nathan come to look at it. Nathan confirmed that the crack would need to be sealed on the internal and external side. I had an independent general contractor estimate the work at $10,000 to $15,000 so I was prepared for the worst. The actual cost was a fraction of that, which I was very pleased with. I also confirmed with the same contractor that the work on their quote was the best way to fix the problem. I also found Stephen and Nathan very congenial and easy to work with. All of the coordination and timing was easy. Nathan and the other young person helping him were terrific, They worked hard and efficiently. The work site was left cleaned up. Nathan communicated progress. They showed up when they said they would and responded quickly to questions. Stephen also pointed out a problem with the way that the gutters were draining that might help prevent water damage in the future. So, this problem that I was anticipating to be a literal money pit was just taken care of quickly and professionally at a lower cost than I was expecting. It's hard to ask for much more than that.

    They were efficient and prompt and considerate of needs of the tenants. The oil tanks were huge and, it turned out, leaking. Soil Solutions promptly removed the tanks, cleared the contaminated dirt, analyzed the soil and basement air, all with professionalism and friendliness. They gave me some discount financially, too. Kept me fully apprised of all details of the situation, and thoroughly explained things to me. Much appreciated!

    Ted Mcbee Boring & Excavating Inc
    It went great. Steve McBee's crew had to dig down 13 feet to repair my sewer line. I hired Steve and waited for his availability because I had heard nothing but FABULOUS things about his work. I heard that "he is the best in the city, that the city permit folks love working with him and that he puts everything back the way he found it." This was all I needed to hear. Honestly, I had to wait for him a couple of months, BUT he was DEFINITELY worth the wait, and I would wait for him again. His crew was the hardest working crew I have ever had do repair at my house. Even my neighbors said that. I didn't really like spending that kind of money on a sewer repair, but I feel so much better that I will not have a back up in my fairly new remodeled basement! Steve explained all the details to me and all the costs were up front. He even added a T line to the garage for future water from the garage. I have passed his name onto 2 other friends and keep his name/number handy. What does that tell you? Enough said!!!

    Best In Concrete Services
    Bill and his crew did a fantastic job: From assessing and quoting the work to be done through demo, site prep, and final pour everything was precise and professional. Bill's initial assessment of the work showed me he understood what I wanted, what the job needed, and that he had the expertise to complete the job. I was impressed with how fast they worked, getting our old driveway out and prep work done in a couple days. The pouring took 2 more days and it was done. Bill bid the job to be done in 7 days or less and he was done in 5. He continuously sent me updates about progress and was very upfront about costs and billing. I would absolutely recommend Best in Concrete Services for concrete jobs large or small.

    Signature Plumbing Services
    I did a remodel on my first floor that removed a closet and laundry room and converted it into a full bathroom. I did a lot of the demo and finish work myself but needed a plumber to do the excavating through my garage for the drains and install the new supply lines for all fixtures. Dave came out the same week I called him to give me an estimate and had some valuable input on how we should set the bathroom up. His estimate came in three days after he did the visit and I immediately said yes because he seemed significantly more knowledgeable than the other plumbers I had that gave me estimates. It was a four day job and Dave showed up on time everyday. His work was excellent and the job came out great. Couldn't be happier with their performance and will use them for any future job.
