Recent Review: I called on a Saturday night and they were very responsive getting to my house after hours. They than tried to rout out the drain to no success and then diagnosed the issue quick and repaired it within the same week. They also went above and beyond to try and get the work approved through my insurance. Thank to all for your outstanding customer service and professionalism. TIM B

QUALITY EXCAVATION INC
Recent Review: Quality Excavation was one of the subcontractors working on our new home. It's a typical Chicago lot with a tight fit coming in, a fence on one side and home on another, so they had to work in limited space to manuveur. The excavation and removal of the earth was well coordinated and the entire excavation/removal was completed in less than a day. Charlie handled the shovel like an extension of his hand, and it was nice to watch him work. I would definitely consider Quality Excavation for any future work and I do recommend them to others as well.

BGR Construction Inc
Recent Review: I would not hire this contractor again. This contractor gave us a bid based on plans provided by us. The plans called for 6 piers with footings to be placed below the frost line, and a foundation wall with footings below the frost line. The contractor completed the walls per the plan, but did not dig the piers per the plan. My husband and I spent about 8 hours arguing our point with the building inspector and BGR, before he finally agreed to remove the footings that he poured just about 23" below grade, and replace them with piers poured per the plans. Then when it came time to pour the slab, the contractor did not perform that task per the plans either. The end result is that although the completed project is adequate to carry the weight of the structure we are building, it is not far enough above the finished grade, and we are regrading our yard to be able to have the wood parts of our structure 6" above the finished grade. If BGR had poured the slab per the plans, it would be sitting 5" higher that it is, and we would not have to regrade our yard. At this point we are sick of dealing with this contractor and we paid them to get rid of them.

AMr Roberts Sewer and Plumbing
They were awesome. He made sure to call me and make sure I stayed updated on the project since I was at work most of the time. The guy with the camera who came had very detailed information on the pipe views. He even came out after the project was completed to be sure the fill they placed maintained before winter began.

ACicero Oil Co
Tom, the owner, gave me a price over the phone. He sent a proposal via e-mail and within two weeks the oil tank was gone. He arranged for the permit and had JULIE out quickly. He made a site visit a day or two prior to the dig to make sure all was set to go. Prior to calling Tom I called two other companies. One visited and said they would mail an estimate. Never heard from them. The other gave an estimate over the phone, said they would come out to look, but never showed. The home heating oil tank was discovered through a home inspection. Cicerco Oil backed a huge oil truck into our driveway and pumped out the 250 gallons of oil (!) still in the tank. Not a drop of oil escaped. Two men hand dug and then cut the tank in pieces to remove. This tank was in a very confined area and pretty much blocked in on all sides by the basement wall, deck, air conditioner and steps leading to the basement. After removal the hole was filled with sand and the top soil replaced and leveled. Tom was a pleasure to deal with, very courteous, pleasant and efficient. His workers were polite and worked hard. I will probably never have an oil tank in my yard again, but if I did I would gladly hire Tom --I highly recommend him to anyone in this situation.

ADone Demolition and Disposal Company
Excellent communication up front. Team arrived ahead of schedule. A back breaking job that would have taken me 2 days, to complete, they were done with in 4 hours. Double jack hammers made quick work of the slab, and the rest was moving materials upstairs and into the dump truck. They left a clean space, with a clean cavity that my plumber can work in. Luke, the owner, has a deep understanding of all elements of home building, and gave me some advice to ensure proper back fill and how to finish the cement once pipes are laid. Trust me, you do not want to do this yourself...small price to pay for a professional, worry-free, and properly executed job that is better than what the actual plumber would do.
