    Dave and his team were awesome! They were very knowledgeable about many things including natural boulder placement, grading and irrigation. I also appreciated their sensitivity to the existing landscape and how clean they kept the worksite. All three on the crew were sweet to our dog and our son and felt like part of the family by the time the job was complete. We are incredibly happy with their work and we plan on hiring Rothgery & Sons next summer for another project. Highly recommend!

    Dave and his team did a great job on our new playground. We worked together on the design, planning and materials, and they were very helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process. Understood our goals and were able to build exactly what we wanted. Tied into the surroundings neatly and minimized any unnecessary soil disturbance. Wall structure turned out extra sturdy with numerous anchors to the soil underneath. Would highly recommend!

    Great communication and very easy to work with. Lois kept us abreast of the progress and quickly addressed a few problems that occurred along the way which did not slow the completion of the job. Professional and reliable.

    RodCo LLC
    Rodney Robinette came to give me a bid. I was in the process of lengthening my 12' culvert by adding a 4' section and a coupler to hold the two culvert sections together in order to widen the road way where trucks needed to drive in order to access the property. In our phone conversation before he came over, I asked him if he could at all help me with this installation. He immediately said he would be fine helping me out whether he got the bid or not. He spent about 1/2 hour helping me and then declined any payment. Kind of amazing in this day and age. His bid was middle of the road. One bid was $2,000 lower and another $ 3,500 more. Both Rodney and another person I got a bid from said that there was no way to do a good job for that lower amount....and even if he didn't get the bid, he would recommend NOT going with that lowest bid. I had ruled out the higher bid because that excavator wanted to start right away even before the permit was issued, and he said he would lay down sand in order to drive over the top of the newly made septic field to finish covering it up. I had already ruled him out because it seemed like he was cutting corners and from what I read you NEVER want to drive over your septic field. So I selected Rodney and RodCo LLD. Throughout the process he emailed or phoned me often with answers to my questions and explanations of how all this needed to be done. Rodney is very mellow, competent, polite, and really listens before responding. He mainly works on his own, but brings in others as needed. He started on a Monday and was through by Thursday. He does all types of excavation work--from driveways, to foundations, utilities, septic systems, gravel and dirt removal and delivery. He advertises as "No job too big or too small." He also gave me a Senior citizen's discount. I would highly recommend him.

    MP Earthworks, Inc
    Tim Mitchell, one of the owners of MP Earthworks, met with us last year when we drove up to Redhill Forrest from Denver. We purchased 2.5 acres and needed to have a drive cut in (up a steep mountainside), culvert installed, and an RV pad created. Tim did an AMAZING job on the work. We could NOT have found a better company to work with. Just this spring we contacted him again to ask that he enlarge one of the areas from last year and do a little more work. Tim, as usual, didn't hesitate to outdo himself and provide services well beyond what was expected. We will NEVER go with anyone else as we continue to improve our lot on the mountain with plans to build our retirement get-away in the near future.

    He met us several times and was always professional. Rod took care of everything and always gave us the heads up on progress along with pictures. He handled the permitting process on our behalf and installed a fence post gate with a rock retaining wall from rocks on the land. See picture! Above and Beyond! We are already planning our next project with Rod. This is the guy you want doing your excavation project.

    Foundation Repair of Western Colorado
    Foundation Repair came in and performed their job in an extremely professional and caring manor. I am a single woman and was very concerned about this whole process. The crew that came in worked efficiently, constantly and very hard. The took every measure imaginable to ensure the least disruption in my life and the least damage to the home. Needless to say this was an enormous project but they had it completely done in 3 days. The house was left very clean and they removed all debris and swept up everything very nicely. I must say this was an amazing group to work with from the time the evaluator stepped in the front door to the moment they all said goodby. I would highly recommend Foundation Repair of Western Colorado and thank them for their hard work and concern for my home and myself.

    Excellent. Les Shepherd saved us a lot of money by telling us how to fix the septic problems ourselves.

    Drager Well Works
    From the time I called him, he was very efficient with getting back with me. He always honest, dependable and has a high degreee of integrity. He knows that if I even have a problem at one of my properties, he is the first and only one I will call.

    He cleaned and fixed a residential sewer main break.  The break was difficult to locate and became a multi day project. He responded quickly and very good natured late on Friday night when the problem started and showed up Sat willing and eager to help finish the problem.  As the project moved into the next week he continued to return to help me, going above and beyond what I would have expected.  We ended up having to excavate the pipe in the back yard and he helped us locate and repair the piping out back. He is an amazing problem solver when the situation became elusive and complicated.  I would recommend ACE for any easy drain clean out or the most complicated.
