Excavating reviews in Owings

Real People ~ Real Reviews ~ Real Results

  • Contractor did initial excavation work that included digging up driveway and regrading to correct drainage to carry water away from house foundation. In addition they regraded backyard to redirect water run-off away from septic system. First phase of the job went well, but they failed to coordinate the work with their paving subcontractor so we had to wait 8 weeks from the time the drive way was dug up until the time it was repaved. When we asked for status on completing the job they were not helpful or friendly and only referrred us to their subcontractor to coordinate directly. The subcontractor told us that the general contractor did not inform them in a timely manner when the first phase would be complete which led to the significant delays.
    Finally, when we were presented with the final bill is was about $1100 higher then the contract we signed. When I called to ask for an explanation the owner was very upset that I would even ask him to account for the difference. We did agree to a couple minor additions during the job but that would only account for a small portion of the increase.
    Although I have no complaints about the quality of the work and the friendliness of the people performing the work, the company is very poorly run, disorganized and unhelpful to their customers.

  • They did the work within a few days of signing the estimate. The work was done extremely well in addition to being extremely fast. And they did a good job communicating with me throughout the process.

  • Sharper Cut is an excellent company, and we were impressed from start to finish. Justin and Billy are a pleasure to work with, and provided just the right amount of help during the design phase to come up with something we would enjoy. We had a few changes during the building process, and they worked to incorporate these to ensure we were satisfied in the end. Email and phone were used primarily, with a couple of on-site visits. The online meeting worked well, where Justin drew out the design and displayed it while we talked on the phone, to make sure our desires were met. Emails were generally answered very quickly, usually within a few hours and always within a day.

    The main carpenter, Oswaldo, was polite, and very detail oriented. It's good to have a perfectionist working on a project like this! He had help during various phases, including digging the post holes and setting them, building the deck, extending existing drainage system, the CR6 patio base, and finish work.

    A 3-D design was mentioned for an additional fee, and we might recommend this although we did not use it. It would allow the customers to better visualize the details (shape, railing, etc) to ensure it looks the way they want. It might cost a few hundred dollars, but in the big scheme might help to avoid more expensive design changes mid-stream.

    One or two bushes were damaged during material delivery, and they took the trouble to replace all six bushes to ensure they matched. They also repaired a grass area that was rutted by a trailer.

    Overall, we were very happy with the experience and would recommend this company to friends and family.

  • Cotton's septic pumped my septic tanks today.  They arrived at the house on time.  They were friendly, knowledgable and professional.  Given diagrams the previous home owners left from the septic tank installation, Cotton's read the diagrams, quickly located the tanks and drain fields.  They dug up the access covers to the tanks and pumped the tanks.  They also answsered all of my questions about the septic system - and I had a lot of questions!  They were professional the entire time and were not condescending when answering questions.  I cannot say enough about how positve my experience was with them and I will not hesitate to call them again in the future.
