    G A HUNT EXCAVATING LLC
    I am the neighbor of the home where the service occurred, where the seller is institutionalized and the buyer and bank agreed on something that ended up having a negative effect on my property. The service was also inadequate on the subject property. The older house next door (by Health department rules) could not sell without a proper septic tank and field. It had used an old cistern for years. (We did not know this illegal installation was there until the owners were institutionalized and a realtor tried to sell it for them.) The home stood vacant for over a year and the price was lowered. Finally someone decided to purchase it and I'm not quite sure who actually paid for the excavation. The excavation took place while I was away but I saw it when I returned. There was a new roadway to the back yard under the branches of my tree that is very large and old. It extends its branches over the neighbor's yard and roots under it's soil. It provides both beauty and shade to the old home. This route was how they carried sand and gravel for the new grain field. Compaction of soil is a known reason that trees die. The excavator told me that the tree would be just fine, but I know better and I think he needs to be held accountable. There is nothing that can be done now except wait and see. It sometimes takes years for a tree to finally succumb to such damage. I wish a better plan had been made, but the excavator was unconcerned. His work was unsatisfactory in other ways too. He didn't install any silt fences as you are supposed to, and the site is steeply sloped at the edge of the Grand River. The trees on the owner's property are scraped on the bark due to his ineptitude. I have photos of all of this. Silt fences are for the specific purpose of restraining soil that moves away from where it is placed. The excavator also buried debris like large rocks and trees. This poses a problem later when the owner wants to make a lawn. You aren't supposed to do that when you develop a site. On this site, the house was in bad condition, and the only good thing about it was the site, which this excavator damaged. It doesn't have to be this way.

    Mark Burley Excavating
    Had the lowest bid of all we checked; including Michigan Plumbing. Came on time and worked quickly and well. Was very careful not to damage the water line. Knew what he was doing. I would recommend him again. He will beat the other bids and you will get quality work.

    Kelley Construction
    Bob Kelley did an excellent job of removing and filling in my 16ft x 36ft in-ground pool. Despite having limited space in my backyard he was able to accomplish the task without damaging any of my gardens and even graded my yard so that I would have proper drainage, and put down grass seed. He was $1,000.00 cheaper than the nearest competitor (who wanted to remove my fence and drive their big equipment over mine and my neighbor's front yard). He was prompt and worked solely on my project until it was done. I will need to replace my patio and my driveway in the future and plan on contacting Bob Kelley to do so.

    The price is good, it was cheaper. If they give you a price, that's what they stay with. He came on time, tell you what's going on. He was very professional. I'm going to use him when he gets done on his other job.

    DYER WELL DRILLING & SERVICE INC
    They responded quickly even though this was a time of weather emergencies. Mr. Dyer facilitated the quick response of the utility company to mark the placement of the underground services. The men worked in very muddy conditions. 2 men worked together to provide safety in the trench. They didn't damage any other utilities. They preserved landscaping as well as could be expected. They worked steadily and successfully fixed the leak. They replaced the dirt into the trench as well as they could--it settles with time. They were as clean as they could be.

    I am thrilled with my new porch! The project progressed swiftly and smoothly and not only meets but goes beyond my hopes for a new summer room. This company is first-rate.
