In a word, great.
As a first-time homeowner with substantial knowledge and experience in trades and construction, I was out of my depth with the task of making my in-ground pool go away and getting the old asphalt driveway and garage apron prepared for new concrete. My original plan was to demolish the pool using small tools like cut-off saws, concrete drills, electric Provider name locked. , sledge Provider name locked. , etc. After draining the pool and spending the better part of a day trying to drill through the pool wall and bottom, I realized that this was NOT the way to go. What I had envisioned as a couple of weekends with a friend to help turned out to be my version of the Pyramids.
I found Mr. Provider name locked. through his Craigslist ad and chose him over the three other contractors I found. Mr. Provider name locked. drove over the next day to look at the project. I was taken by his approachable and authentic personality. As he explained the details of how he would attack the job, what the charges would be (different rates for different tasks and implements) I quickly grew to trust him. And I was not disappointed.
Mr. Provider name locked. showed up as scheduled the first day... I was VERY NERVOUS as I knew that I was embarking on a commitment for a substantial financial outlay (entire project including concrete). He had the pool, pool apron, and block wall completely demolished and graded over in less than eight hours. He had a hammer attachment for his backhoe that made my pool crumble like a house of cards. I was relieved!
Mr. Provider name locked. came back multiple times as I muddled through the task of planning and grading my driveway pour. He recommended some additions to my project that I wouldn't have considered without his input. He probably saved me $10K over the life of the entire project.
I did rate him as a 'B' on punctuality, but he made every effort to communicate changes in his schedule as soon as possible. I've worked with many contractors over the years, and Provider name locked. is top-notch. His ability with the machinery and his straight-forward manner left me with little doubt that I was in the best of hands.
I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to him for further excavation work nor would I hesitate to recommend him. Mr. Provider name locked. saved my bacon!

From my first phone conversation with Provider name locked. , of Provider name locked. , I knew he would be hired for the job. He listened well and offered many money saving alternative suggestions to me, which we had considered, but realized, sometimes it's just best to pay for a professional. He gave me a very reasonable quote right over the phone, and after speaking with my Better Half, I called him back to ask him to do the job. He came a few days later with his own equipment and he performed the work himself. I just briefly told him I wanted the dirt removed about 4" below the original level and pointed out the staked areas to avoid, where the drip system was exposed. I saw from my window just how carefully Provider name locked. worked. But I had to leave for work, so I didn't get to see the finished yard until much later. But it was great to receive an email from Better Half when he came home first: "The yard looks perfect..they did an awesome job....good choice!" That is pure compliment from someone who is quite picky and adheres to a much higher work ethic. Well when I came home, WOW!!!, summed it up for me! Super cleanup job too! We are completely happy with choosing Provider name locked. . He definitely raised the bar!

Peni shook our hands, asked for 0 money down until the job was done and we were happy. He told us he could start that afternoon and showed up two hours later with a group of guys and equipment. They worked all afternoon and completed the digging, laying gravel and rebar (not chicken wire) that same afternoon. Peni's crew were courteous and respectful to my family, they were available to answer all our questions and checked frequently that the project was going as needed. When I asked for changes Peni and his crew were right on top of it. When I called him for any reason I was called back promptly. His guys layed extra gravel in an area where we wanted a shed built and filled our potholes. They poured the whole driveway in one day. It is a long driveway so it was important it drain water away from the house and the joints be straight. Peni has delivered on everything he told us he would plus more. We are over the moon happy with our new driveway and will be using Provider name locked. again to finish the rest of the driveway and a patio in the spring.
