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

Everything went as smoothly as possible. They got here on time, did the work, talked to the inspector, cleaned everything up, and gave us a great price.

Their bid price was half of what 5 other companies were wanting to charge. I would recommend them to others.

AQUALITY EXCAVATION INC
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.

DBGR Construction Inc
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.

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.

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.

AThe Scottish Plumber
I highly recommend my team from the Scottish Plumber.     We purchased an older home (built in 1929) less than a year ago and recently discovered that a section of our sewer line had shifted and collapsed under the driveway, along the foundation wall.  After obtaining quotes for excavation & repair from 5 different companies, I chose to go with the Scottish Plumber for two main reasons: 1) I was very impressed with the installation manager, Mike D.’s, assessment and recommendations.  He was the only plumber who showed an interest in the holistic picture of my sewer lines. For example, when I asked him about installing a check-valve, unlike the other plumbers, he did not simply agree and add this to the invoice. Instead he educated me about check valves and the possibility of flooding your home if the valve is closed – depending on where your sump pump, catch basin, etc is routed.  Only after investigating all of the inlets into our sewer lines did he determine this was a viable option for our home.  2) Since the sewer line had completely collapsed, we were unable to assess the condition of the sewer beyond the break to the street.  While the known break required excavation, I wanted to be working with a company that had the ability to do stents and trenchless repairs in case we found more necessary repairs.  Good thing – because we did.     Mike was professional, thorough, considerate and very astute. During the original quote, he expressed an interest/concern in the sewer lines under the house due to the presence of an old boozy valve and a floor drain that the prior owners had filled with concrete.  Sure enough, as the project continued we discovered the boozy valve was rusted out and pipe had slipped several inches, allowing water to seep under the basement concrete slab.  This issue within the house was beyond the abilities of a trenchless repair and we elected to undertake a second excavation/repair in the basement.  During this basement excavation, we further found that the cast iron pipe that traversed the basement and exited the foundation wall was cracked and needed stenting. The Scottish Plumber team was able to repair this additional pipe without having to excavate more.     While the bad news kept coming, bad news doesn’t seem nearly as bad when you understand what is going on and are confident that the workers there will not only repair it but repair it well.  My husband and I were well informed and educated throughout the entire process.  The entire crew was excellent (core members: Mike D., Brad, Andy “Mob”, and Matt “Ginger”). Mike D. assessed the situation and determined the best solution for our home.He was on site, making the repairs himself in the driveway. The excavation team (Matt “Ginger” and Martin) worked hard in 90+ degree temps, powering through lunch to make progress on the job.  Brad and Andy worked on the new piping under the concrete slab in the basement, hydro-jetted the lines, and installed the stent. They patiently answered all of my many questions, and kept me informed of their progress and timeline for completion.  All team members were friendly and treated the project as if it were their own home – paying close attention to every detail.  Matt “Ginger” took the lead in clean-up, sweeping and hosing down the driveway every afternoon (even though they were coming back to dirty it again the next day) and mopping several times in the basement once the crew was finished.  It was refreshing to work with a team that set expectations that they not only met, but exceeded.    As far as cost, the quote for the initial scope of work from Scottish plumber was not the most expensive, nor was it the cheapest quote that I obtained. It was on the higher end but was by far the most comprehensive (repair the break, camera/rod & hydro-jet remaining lines, and patch the asphalt/concrete after repairs were complete), eliminating the need for me to track down additional contractors. When the second break was found, this repair was presented to me as a separate quote, to discuss and decide with my husband.  We did not feel pressured or taken advantage of with the additional repairs - which was good, I don't like being told what to do or being treated unfairly.  While I hope to never need to work with them again in this same capacity, I highly recommend this group of guys and will happily use them again for other plumbing issues.
