Recent Review: They had to cut into a hillside and level an area and dig a hole on the foundation. It was an area that was difficult to get to, but they did a beautiful job. They did it very professionally and made it look nice. They had to dig ditches and everything.
Recent Review: Bought our first home and due to a number of need-to-do’s we ended up affording a more affluent neighborhood. Little did we know this meant wading through a sea of bids at 3-4x the standard rate while assuming we knew little about the work being done. Superior Underground was a godsend. They were fast, fair priced, professional, and not put off by my town’s extra layers of regulation. When they encountered problems (leaking water line) I was informed immediately along with their action plan, they even had everything fixed before leaving for the evening. They did a great job cleaning up & compacting the site afterward, even excavated a set of bushes I had been struggling to remove.
Business Description: We are a professional excavation and remodeling company servicing the Portland Metropolitan area as well as Clark County. We have over 20 years experience in the industry - both residential and commercial. The founder and owner, Jim Horn, CR, has over 20 years experience in residential excavation and remodeling as well as small commercial excavation.
We do a great deal of the work ourselves, however, we use subcontractors if the project includes installation of items such as flooring, drywall, cabinets, etc... and we know a subcontractor can do the work more efficiently and less expensive to save the homeowner money.
We have a $100 - $150 move-in charge for our excavation equipment depending on the location of the job site & the equipment needed.
We are members of the Oregon Remodelers Association and the National Assocation of Remodelers. James Horn is a Certified Remodeler and is lead certified with Oregon and the EPA. We are also members of our local Chambers of Commerce.
Business Description: We are a locally owned small business specializing in the Forestry, Transportation, Demolition, and Excavation sectors. We employ on average 10 full time employee's with seasonally adjusted employment at 20 or more.
Recent Review: They understood the short schedule to get the job done, and they squeezed my work in with 9 days to spare. They showed up on time and got right to it. They were done in less time than they had planned for, and Will discounted the job by $200. I had to do a fair amount of site preparation before they could get their equipment into the right place to dig the back ditch. I got this work done on time so they could do theirs. They were great guys to work with.
Business Description: We are a family owned and operated business with wide ranging plumbing expertise.

Recent Review: Went very well. We had to clear a lot of debris, plants and small trees, as well as planters and arbors. Work was completed a day early, and Ted really worked with us when we needed to add a few unexpected projects to the list, including a deck removal. He even helped remove our hot tub with his excavator, getting us a discounted price with the garbage haulers, since it turned their 1 hour job into 5 minutes. Overall, very pleased with the finished product: cleared lot ready for sod and landscaping.
2 yrs later: Now that I know how to use Angie's List =) I've used Duane Rinkes for years and always knew he was an artist. Recently had to have some emergency work done by someone else ... You can't imagine the mess a less-skilled excavator can create ... or the mess you will have to clean up yourself. Duane is fast but a perfectionist ... comes from a lifetime of experience. His price is fair-to-low and he is such a nice person too!!!! I will never let another person work in my yard except him.

After a rocky start due to a challenging sloped lot on waterfront property, Bill assured us he would be able to make us happy with the final product he did!. Note: 6 months after occupying the home, we couldn't be more pleased with Bill's work.

ABlue Lake Construction, LLC
Clancy showed up on time to our initial meeting. We discussed the job in detail and he made several suggestions on how to complete the job. Not only did we like the ideas he had, but it was cheaper than what we had planned. He took notes on the job and e-mailed us a detailed bid in just a few hours. The crew showed up on the day the job was scheduled to start and were professional and courteous. We had company coming in so we were on a tight schedule. Blue Lake worked through the weekend and completed the job two days early. The driveway come out even better than we had hoped it would and was right on budget. Clancy was on the job every day and kept us well informed of the progress. There were a couple of minor changes made along the way which we worked together to resolve. I've worked with other companies in the past that tend to make decisions for you and tell you about it later (and bill you for it). I was very happy that Clancy discussed everything with us before any work was done. Overall this was an excellent experience. I absolutely recommend this company and will be using them again on future projects!

AKennedy Plumbing Inc
Our water main succumbed to 21 years of maple roots pushing on it, and so I walked outside on a freezing Saturday morning to see my front yard slowly filling with water. I tried to dig out the main to see where the break was, but finally gave up and called Kennedy Plumbing after reading some reviews on Angie's List. Being the weekend, I was prepared for a long wait, thinking that I would be lucky to get someone out on Monday at the earliest. Thus I was surprised when I called the emergency number and it was immdediately answered by Jorge, who gave me some advice on some cost saving things to do before he came out. I did some more digging until I thought I new where the break was and gave Jorge another call. He was at my house about 30 minutes later and immediately started further excavating the hole. He was able to quickly find and diagnose the problem, a joint that had cracked due to an ever growing tree root. Jorge got the break repaired and the water back on in record time. I have to give Jorge, and Kennedy Plumbing, full marks for promptness, getting the job done quickly and well, and at what i considered a reasonable cost, especially given the emergency appointment and it being the weekend. Thanks!
