Reviews in Cicero to Prepare Building Site

AWharff Excavating LLC
Wharff Excavating arrived on time. They had the entire job done and cleaned up in 6 hours. I am very pleased with their work. They hand dug the new pipe ditch doing very litte damage to my yard. They refilled the ditch, tamped down the soil, placed grass seed and straw. They put in two new under ground down spouts, with pop-up's and clean out accesses. They removed the mulch beds and made them larger, adding metal borders and filled in with 5 yards of river rock. Looks great. This area never grew grass well and mowing was a nightmare because of the trees.. The new hardscape took care of both problems. They were courteous, cleaned up the job site, and I definitely recommend them.

It all went fine at the beginning, but it’s not going fine now. He had to excavate on my property. We had him come out and give us his opinion of what needed to be done. He removed a third of the wall and had to replace the drywall. He used a strip of wood on the bottom to make it look better, but now I have noticed that he had to check where there was moisture coming in on the bottom and I have noticed black mold coming in near the bottom where he put the strips of wood in. He said that he would come out on Saturday to look at everything, and he never came. I have tried to call him back multiple times, but I never get a response. It is disappointing, they did a good job at the beginning, but it all ended very badly.

They did an AMAZING job. My neighbors all went with a different company, but I took a chance with Augusta. Months later my yard has no scarring and they even followed up close to a year later to make sure all was in order. I recommend them to anyone.

The soil was built up too high on one section of our house, by approx. 9 inches.  This put the soil above the sill plate of the house and would allow moisture to seep through the brick mortar and perhaps rot the framing behind the brick.  It also made the first floor of the house look out of proportion to the second floor.  John regraded so that the soil was at the proper height at the house and sloped away for drainage.  It was great working with John -- a very good experience for us.  He is very skilled at excavating / regrading, a super considerate person, and he prices his services fairly.  Also very important to us is the fact that even though we are very hands-on homeowners, he did not once make us feel that we should 'go away'.  It was great to collaborate with him.  We would hire him again with no hesitation.

Matt and his team were great. I needed to excavate an Underground oil tank, about 300 gallons in size and roughly 7 feet underground. The tank was up a steep hill, inside a courtyard fence and under a paver patio. Matt quoted quickly and was very responsive to all questions. The work was completed within a week and everything was leveled, grass planted and fence panels put back.

We had Augusta Underground out to look at an ongoing flooding/drainage issue on our property. Steve and Joel arrived 10 minutes early to the scheduled estimate, found the causes of our flooding issue and recommended regrading, along with extending our downspouts, adding a drain box and digging swales on either side of our lot to route the water down to the street. Their quote was reasonable considering the scope of the work. We also had them remove several stumps, a small dying tree, a broken concrete slab from an old 1-car garage that had been torn down long ago, and a broken concrete walkway. When they were on our property they were professional, respectful of our neighbors, and hard working. They completed the project in two long days, and we were very impressed by the work ethic. Even after they wrapped up and were showing us the finished project, Steve couldn't help but bend down to pick up a stray rock or two, like he was still in clean up mode. They meticulously removed old weed stumps from the chain link fence around the property (our next project is a privacy fence!). They put down grass seed on the swales for us, covered them over with hay, and watered without being asked. Steve said it would help get everything settled and working properly faster. We feel they went above and beyond for us and we couldn't be happier with the result. If you are reaching out to them during their busy season, be prepared for response times on emails/calls to be a little on the slower end. We found it took a couple of days to get a response from them at times, but ultimately we understood they are in high demand and very busy. And for good reason! They are worth the wait. This is the crew you want to hire.

Called Wharf Excavating and he was great to consult and talk to me about my basement waterproofing, excavating, drain pipe installation, and concrete work.  He was unfortunately swamped and it was going to be a couple of weeks before work can be done.  I will definitely call him again!

Recent Review: The job went extremely well and English Excavating left my yard in surprisingly good condition.  It was a very challenging project as there was a gas line and sump line to work around and there was only 5 feet between the house and property line.  They discovered that my fireplace foundation was very shallow.  Mark English thoughtfully solved all of the issues and did not charge me extra.  I am very happy that I hired this extremely experienced and reputable company.

Recent Review: They were very professional in giving the price and options for making the repair.  They had to excavate the lawn and repair a broken sewer line.  They took care of all the permits.  They did a very good job and went out of their way to keep us from spending more than necessary.

Recent Review: Jim was excellent to work with! He came to view & quote the job the same day I called, and was on-site 2 days later to perform the work. He successfully excavated - with both an excavator and by hand - around the drain pipe to locate the blockage (caused by a nearby street tree that had been removed, as well as poor installation by the original home builder). He also provided materials to re-connect the sump drain line to the city connection. Once complete he cleaned the site very nicely. I was not disappointed with my interaction or work with Jim. I communicated only with him, and he performed the work himself (although he does have a crew that works with him on larger jobs). I highly recommend Jim for any plumbing or excavating needs.

Recent Review: We were put in touch with Dan Dawson through a local pond retailer while looking for quotes to have a pond dug on a piece of land we purchased to build a new home. We have 4.23 acres we are building a pole barn and 9,000 square foot home on. They have done a few projects for us so far and will be working with us on others throughout the build of the barn and home.
