Recent Review: I think I found them on Angie's List. They were wonderful. It was pretty amazing. The price was absolutely excellent. He was way more cheaper than another company and a lot more reputable. He was more like our neighbor or grandpa or something. He was a very personable man. He told everything upfront. He gave two prices. He said that it could be as much as this or as low as this. I ended up paying the lesser amount. They tried to solve the problem a number of ways. I just thought that the way they went about their work was very good. If I had to have my driveway excavated, it would have cost me thousands more. I would have had to have it all repaved.

ABURNETT EXCAVATING INC
We had a small sinkhole growing in our front yard. There was a crack in the sewer lateral pipe. Burnett came in quickly and diagnosed the problem. Unfortunately the crack in the pipe was on our side and not the city's. We had an appointment a couple days later for Burnett to dig it up. They did and they replaced the sewer lateral pipe and re-filled. We had some bushes in the way, but they managed to do it without damaging them. One small thing is that I wish they had laid top soil and grass seed a little sooner afterwards. But all that dirt needed time to settle. They also had a good price compared to another estimate I got. I would recommend them.

Working with Michelle and Jay at MJS Excavation was very refreshing. They are a family-run business that takes a lot of pride in their work and they won't stop until they know you're happy. They excavated an area of our backyard for a hot tub, leveled it, prepared it with pretty pea stone, and built a very nice retaining wall around it that was way nicer than what we imagined. They also leveled out the rest of our backyard lawn, which had a lot of uneven areas. We are very happy to have found this company and highly recommend MJS!

Excellent. Work was done quickly, professionally and for a very good price. They were a little bit inconsistent on starting, but once it started it was great, and it wasn't a bad wait at all.

FSTILLWATER RIDGE PROJECT & EXCAVATING SERVICES
Long story short, I am acting as my own General Contractor. Stillwater Ridge Excavation put up my foundation in July of 2008. The 10 inch concrete wall in the back of the basement fell in on August 4th, 2008. They are taking no responsibility for this wall. I recently found out from the framers (who were subcontracted by Stillwater who they did not pay) that they (Stillwater) hit the wall backfilling it accidentally. Stillwater stated that they would replace the wall once engineered plans were received. They were given those plans August 15th. My wall is still not up. I have about 12 inches of rain and mud in my frame out basement. I am basically being held hostage by this establishment until I can get my wall up and plus I have invested a lot of money (to me) into this project, that was only 3 weeks from completion. Their only response at this time is that they sympathize with me and I am high on their priority list. I was supposed to be on the their schedule for Monday (9/15) for the re-build of this wall of course they were a no show but on Tuesday they sent me a invoice of $25,000 and that they will begin the project after receiving a $15,000 deposit. At this time, I will not use them to complete my produce due to their dishonestly. They were also caught stealing supplies from my site and attempting to order supplies from 84 Lumber without my approval. The framing inspection has not past and they are refusing to complete until I purchased more lumber (that they have already stolen) to complete this job. They have been paid for a driveway that is a total mess from their people and trucks in and out.

They showed up on time. They worked quickly and did a great job. The price was reasonable. One contractor had given us a quote for FOUR TIMES the price that Levernois charged.

I had a collapsed sewer line. Keith came in with his crew and performed a technical excavation in a tight area including excavating under my front porch with out any damage. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. They worked hard and had a new sewer line and new water line installed and functional after just one day of work. I live in a neighborhood of older homes (just over 100 years old) and I would happily refer Keith to anyone with an issue similar to mine. The job took a total of a day and a half. They did a very nice job cleaning up my yard and my neighbors yard and put down new grass seed and cover. Keith really went above and beyond and even helped me replace a bad sewer cap inside my basement.

I purchased a vacant lot next to my home that another house previously stood on. Because of the sloping grade of the land, it was pretty much impossible to do anything with the property... Until we met Pat... Pat offered me a very reasonable price and was able to take care of it within days of our meeting. He was punctual and very easy to work with. During the project he asked what I wanted and his work far exceeded our expectations! He carved out the areas where retaining walls will go, leveled an area for a shed and fluffed the extra fill so it will be easier to move when the time comes. I got an estimate last year that was triple the price and really didn't think I'd ever be able to afford having the foundation for our landscaping project completed. I was very fortunate to find Pat on Craigslist. I would recommend him in a minute and will be using him again.

The work was done in a timely manner and at the price that was quoted. The Town building inspector approved all of Bobs work and mentioned that it exceeds what the engineers plan specified.

Matt showed up on time and started looking for placement of tank and cover. This was the first time since buying the property that I had the tank serviced. He had one of his workers with a small back hoe in the area so he had him come over and dig where we thought the tank was. One try and the tank was found. They drained the tank replaced the cover and back filled the hole. Matt and back hoe operator were very friendly and answered all my questions regarding the condition of the tank. If I run into trouble, I know I could call them and get an honest estimate of work that may need to be done
