Recent Review: There was some confusion at first but once I connected with Eldon, it went smoothly. He gave me assurances. Grant was the foreman was very professional, included me in the decision process, adjusted well to the situation. Very warm and humid day they were not able to use the excavating machine, did not fit through the gate. So  was done all by hand and went well. Shed was just installed all goes nicely together.

Recent Review: I was impressed how quickly the crew completed my new driveway. First, they excavated the layer of stone and packed earth beneath, then graded the dirt base and cut evenly straight edges into the turf. Asphalt was poured and packed down with a roller. The end of the driveway that tapered down to meet the road was sealed. When they were finished, they roped off the entrance to the drive with fluorescent plastic tape. The work was done in about 4 hours.
Recent Review: Overall the work went well. It took pretty much a whole week from start to finish. Of course when you do work like this it's always noisy, messy and expensive. I would have rather not have had to do it at all but there were problems with the original line that was made of the old orangeburg material, and had to be replaced. There was a breakage in one of the interior lines as well. Jeff co-ordinated the work well and addressed any issues that came up. They handled all the inspections that had to be done by the boro and knew what they were doing. The fellow they had doing the excavation was pretty good. He had two different shovels he used to dig and back fill. He was pretty adept at handling the equipment. He had to remove a small tree and a bush, and then replanted them using the equipment. He also had to get in pretty close to the house to get to the footer. They seem to have the men, material and expertise to do this kind of work, and they had plenty of people there to keep the job going as fast as they could. They taped plastic up as much as they could to keep the concrete dust from getting everywhere but there still where some areas that got a little messy. They did try to clean up the work area somewhat. They used a subcontractor to do the concrete patching and they were a little messy.They did not have anything of their own to use so I had to put down plastic to protect the area they were walking on because there was a lot of foot traffic from the garage to the basement work area. Everything had to be bucketed in and out. As stated before, work like this is expensive. I think the pricing was pretty much in line. I've never had to do work like this before but I think I got the right people to do the job.
Recent Review: John & his crew arrived right on time - they were clean, neat, polite and hard workers. They brought the correct supplies and the right equipment. They navigated the tricky parts of the job very carefully. John is extremely knowledgable and skilled - he bid the work & than did the work himself alongside his crew that he supervised. They did an impressive job of cleaning up by raking & grading the dirt back, and leaving no garbage behind. They went the extra mile by re-seeding the lawn, moving the old piers out of site, and providing tips on completing the deck. I interviewed a few contractors before I Show Up Construction and none of them gave me the confidence that they had the ability or knowledge to do the job. After interviewing John and discussing the project - I knew right away that he had the ability & knowledge to do it right. John guarenteed that the work would pass inspection and it did. Every phone call & question was answered and I would recommend them without hesitation.
Recent Review: Extremely well Company was very busy so actual work was a few weeks later then expected but that was not a problem because we had not time restraints. Extremely professional group of folks. Extremely efficient work team. Material and equipment was there on time and the project went without a hitch. The speed with which the work was done was very impressive. All work was performed for the quote that was provided. No extras.

Reviews in Dover to Prepare Building Site

Got the name from Angie's List and contacted. Mark was easy to deal with and although we had some difficulty with communications in the beginning, all worked out well. They arrived when they said they would and completed the job within 1/2 hour, at the price quoted.

Dwight and his sons did a outstanding job for us excavating for a foundation, trenching for underground utilities and lot grading . They provided top notch, experienced work with great customer service. They were extremely knowledgeable and provided guidance on making sure the project was done properly. They went above and beyond. They have modern equipment and machinery that performs the project efficiently and accurately. We highly recommend them.

Mike Hartman and his excavation business at Hand H are nothing less than first-rate. They will bend over backwards to ensure that you as a customer are satisfied, and will work with you to solve whatever problems may arise. Their home remodeling business is extremely responsive as well. This is a quality organization that knows customer service.

Promptly came out to give an estimate and meet with us. Quick follow up to all of our questions. Bob and his crew were right on time when they said they would be there and worked efficiently. We came across a tree stump that wasn't completely taken down by someone else we used last fall. He gave me options and rectified the situation that day. I would not hesitate to recommend him or use him again. Pricing is very fair and he has great customer service.

Mr Deller was professional and honest. He shared ideas and concerns, and worked as a partner with me to tackle some sticky problems. The demolished a silo and an old barn foundation, sourced a buyer for the field stone, contacted the gas company to determine resolution to concerns with gas line placement, performed perc and probe test, moved logs, rlocated a bush, filled a hole in my yard, and relocated my driveway.

We asked this firm for an estimate for grading excavation and installing a swale. Way too expensive! Wanted to overhaul our entire landscape on one side of our home which entailed all kinds of costs, equipment etc. we wanted simple and got extravagant with a cost to match! Very nice owner, but just didn't listen to our plea. Also we had to keep calling to even get the estimate after owner arrived said they kept losing our phone number. Not sure that is a good thing. Didn't hear back from them for over a month.

AJohn Dean Excavation
John Dean was professional and fair, he is experienced, knowledgeable, and easy to communicate with. He did a fantastic job clearing, grading, building retaining walls, and seeding my yard that was overgrown with bamboo. He overcame several obstacles excavating and worked with me through the stages in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him for any excavating needs you have.

The guys from DBS construction always do a terrific job. We have hired them on two separate occasions to construct horse riding arenas, and were extremely happy both times. They have reasonable rates, they know what they are doing, and they get the job done right the first time. They don't cut corners, and they go above and beyond. They leave the job site in perfect order. If you are having excavation of any kind done, I strongly recommend calling DBS construction. I really respect the team from DBS construction because they won't take advantage of you in any way, and they will do whatever it takes to do the job right. I have hired a lot of different contractors and worked with at lot of different businesses over the years, and DBS construction ranks very high on my list of great people to do business with.
