Excavating reviews in Escondido

    Sludgebusters Septic Service
    Sludgebusters are great. Peter came out on time and was very courteous knowledgable and fast. He answered all of my question and told me ways to ensure my septic tank will last longer. I could not be happier with the professional service I received. They have my continued business.

    Sunrise Pumping Service
    I have owned this property for 15 years and have used Sunrise Pumping for all septic tank issues. There are two houses on the property, each with it's own septic system. When we bought the property, they did the escrow inspection and added risers to the lids on one tank, so I called them when I needed to have the tanks pumped the first time. I was very satisfied with their service and have used them about every two years since. Since there are two tanks, they give a small discount on each and I do the digging to uncover and re-cover the lids. Ron and John have always been punctual, professional and efficient - I would recommend their service to anyone needing it in the north county area.

    James Construction Cleanup Inc
    We had a 40 year old or so large pool and built in spa. Pool's deep end was about 10 feet.   In general our project went very well, delayed only due to rain.  Bobcat Billy and James Construction owner Jim are old-school contractors - they promise only what they can deliver, and they keep their promises.  Unlike most contractors, they did not require a deposit.  We paid James Construction at end of each phase.   They did an excellent job on pool demo, especially considering they had a tough access.  They removed a section of chain link fence & rehung it after finishing.  They removed old pool equipment and landscape debris, and cleaned up afterwards.  When the paint we selected for the concrete deck turned out to be too light, they repainted with a darker color, no problem.  The ONLY issue we have is with the artificial turf. installation.  James Construction team tried several times to "retune" it, but there are still a couple of very visible lines in the turf where pieces are joined.  Bobcat Billy offered to rip it out and start over but we didn't want them to eat the high cost of the turf (the turf cost was nearly half the total project amount).  If not for that, James Construction Cleanup would have "A:"s across the board.  We definitely highly recommend them for anyone seeking to remove a pool.

Tom was professional and responsive.  Throughout the whole process any questions and issues were dealt with immediately and smoothly.  Quality materials, and the right sod turf were used to suit our families needs to ensure that we will enjoy our improved yard for years to come.

    Maher Construction General Contractor
    The owner's name is Corey and he is very good. He is honest and very fair. He shows up when he says he is showing up. His work is professional and timely. I have had other people come out to give me prices and he is very fair. I would definitely use his services in the future.

    Joe's Paving Co Inc
    Overall, I was very happy with the repairs by Joe's paving. They went above and beyond and ended up doing much more than we originally agreed. My driveway is 25 years old and not so well built in the first place, so it's due for a complete redo ($10k job), but I figured I'd do one more round of repairs to pospone the big expense.

    I got offers from 4 different contractors for either the patch work or a complete redo. Out of the 3 contractors who promised to excavate (as opposed to just laying new asphalt on top of bad sub base), Joe's Paving had the best price. We contracted Joe's paving to repair the private main road as well, so that probably helped me with my driveway job pricing though.

    Sean the owner made the initial estimate and bid for the work, and he was great to work with. He had a good engineering eye for grading and drainage issues and made some good proposals on what to fix if I want to completely redo the driveway. I ended up going with just repairs to the existing driveway ($2k as opposed to $10k), but they still built a small asphalt ditch at no extra cost as a quick and easy help for my drainage problem.

    The asphalt crew arrived at quite a short notice as some other job had been cancelled, but I understand it's very expensive to keep the crew and machines idle. They had a crew of 10+ workers and got both the main road and my driveway repaired in one day. Sean stopped by a couple of times during the day to oversee the crew, and to tell them to fix a couple of more things with my driveway. All and all, Sean and the crew went above and beyond what was on the original bid, and ended up fixing many small areas we didn't even originally discuss.

    I realize my driveway is already on extended time and eventually needs to be completely removed and redone. With the repairs exceeding my expectations, I'm hoping to get 5 more years out of it as opposed to the 3 years I was initially hoping for. Based on my experiences with the repairs, Joe's Paving will be the first on my list when the time comes to redo the driveway.

    All Cities Hauling Service
    I chose Kevin based on the good reviews on Angie's List and wasn't disappointed. He always showed up on time and kept his promises. I took a day off from work while he was working in my yard to guide him on how exactly I want to have each area excavated / graded. Kevin was very effective with the Bobcat and great to work with. I was really happy with his work and his price was reasonable. Hopefully I got all my grading work done for a while, but if I ever need a Bobcat contractor again, I'll be sure to use Kevin.

    Maher Construction General Contractor
    They got here bright and early in the morning. I shopped with him for the lighting fixtures as I had not previously done that. Another worker did the prep work while we shopped for the fixtures. I knew what I wanted, but he helped me pick out the correct type and size for what I needed. When we got back with the materials, they got right to work. They covered all my counters, floors, and appliances to protect them which was nice since I just got new appliances! Most of the work was done by the time they left at 5:00. They arrived the next morning to finish up and clean up. They did the hall lights and the drywall patching while the other drywall was drying so that it could get the texture coating on it. I supplied the matching paint and my husband quickly painted the finished product. It was great! It went so smoothly and all the mess was cleaned up before they left. I am very happy with my new lighting and highly recommend them for any work that you need. They are thorough and reasonably priced.

    They were very direct and very personable. He came out and located a leech line for the septic system. He was very much on time and was timely in getting a report.
