Reviews in Pittsburgh to Prepare Building Site

AArtistic Tree & Landscape Creations
ATLC work was great as usual. The work was high quality, on time and a fair price. A fair estimate was delivered on time. The work was done prior to shed construction which was a must. The team that was sent to do the work was excellent as usual. They do excellent work, they provided recommendations, we discussed the work to be done and these are people that I feel extremely comfortable having around my house and family.

We had ten contractors bid on our backyard patio project.  In addition to being one of the lowest bidders, Brian was the only one who clearly understood our vision for an artistic, yet functional, outdoor living space.  As an engineer, I was impressed by Brian's technical competence, as he answered my questions about drainage, reinforcement, expansion, etc., to my satisfaction.  However, it was Brian's creativity and sense of aesthetics that really set him apart from the pack.  Unlike most of the bidders, who seemed primarily concerned with the cost per square foot and with checking another job off the list, Brian was clearly focused on the quality and appeal of the finished product.  He worked closely with us to perfect the size and shape of the patio, even as he laid out the forms, and provided honest feedback when he thought he could improve upon our ideas.  He used curved lines to soften our otherwise square house and yard.  (The patio doesn't contain any straight edges).  He incorporated nine colors in the concrete (rather than the standard two) to achieve a very natural look that complements our siding perfectly.  He suggested a unique, asymmetrical design for the steps leading from our back door to free up more usable space on the patio below.  He used a stone face and slightly darker hues on the steps to make them look like slabs of natural stone.  He was attentive to every detail, such as the direction of the saw cuts and the sheen of the sealer, to achieve a stunning result. Our original plan called for a simple curved retaining wall to help tie the patio into a hillside that runs parallel to the house.  However, we threw a curveball at Brian when we changed our minds and decided to replace the wall with natural boulders.  He ran with this idea, transforming the hillside into a magnificent hardscape that gives the impression of a sandstone outcrop.  Brian spent an entire Saturday morning with us, carefully maneuvering giant boulders into just the right position.  (Several of them weigh well over a ton).  He was patient and receptive when we asked him to tweak the placement by a few inches.  He cleverly situated a few boulders so that they double as seats for the patio.  The formerly unremarkable hillside now has a lot of character and perfectly complements the flow of the patio. Throughout the project, Brian and his crew were professional, courteous, and accommodating.  They arrived to work promptly each morning, didn't cut any corners, and left the site reasonably clean each evening. Overall, we are thrilled with the finished product.  The patio and hillside have received numerous compliments from family, friends, neighbors, and other contractors working on the house.  One visitor commented "This looks like something you'd find at a mansion in Hollywood."  Another asked if she could move in next door so that she could wake up and look out at our beautiful backyard each morning. One very minor criticism - Brian fell a bit behind schedule in starting our project, in part because of the weather, in part because of equipment problems, and in part because of delays in several of his other projects.  If this happens to you, be patient and persistent and stick it out.  You won't regret it!  Brian truly succeeded in turning our vision into a reality.  Our patio and backyard are more beautiful than we ever could have imagined.

AMohney Excavating & Landscaping
He charged me $2500 for one day, I liked his work so asked him to come back, and he worked for another half day for $500. From pricing around his prices were average. However, whenever I called him he called me back right away, and showed up within 24 hours to give me a check right away, then called me 24 hours later to tell me the price. I was really impressed with his speed at responding. While he was on site, he called me down ½ way through to make sure they were doing it right. We tweaked our plans a bit, then he called me back down again to make sure I was happy with it.

Cullen and his team showed up everyday ready to work. That included two days they worked as long as could in the rain. They promised our gas would off for a day as they had to move and completely replace the line and delivered on that. The small changes along the way we asked for were done without question and done to our satisfaction. The crew kept the job site as neat as they could and even cleaned the existing driveway of mud without being asked to as well as keeping the streets clean too. The machines and trucks were new and well maintained. We are extremely happy we chose Green Landscaping and will definitely use them for our future projects. Thank you Cullen and crew.

I have used him before and he has done the plumbing work and he has installed the pipe for the natural gas furnace for a very reasonable price. He finished the work in one day and did a fine job. I liked his price, responsiveness and the quality of work.

Recent Review: It went really well. From the time Dave McGuire responded to our online request for a contractor until the job was complete, he was very professional. He listened to what we needed done and went above and beyond to make sure we got what we needed done. They came before the scheduled time and set up all the equipment they were using. They were quick and efficient. Very polite and easy to talk to and deal with. When they were finished with everything they cleaned up and left in the amt of time they said they would be done. I strongly recommend McGuire Construction for any construction work either big or small.

Recent Review: He was great. He is a contractor/builder because we had water issues in the back with drainage. We decided to redo it the way we wanted instead of just correcting the problem. We are thrilled. He does great work. His subcontractors are honest and really great people. They did a great job. He dug up to correct the drainage and he worked with the landscaper. He has a little backhoe and he excavated. He became a part of the family. We would recommend him for remodeling. They started in September and finished right around Christmas time. They really recreated two rooms. They did a bathroom and powder room and made it into two rooms. One is a media room and a scrapworking/hobby room.
