Excavating reviews in Chaska

    The project ran from mid-May to September as the Association made frequent changes to the project scope. In every situation, the company communicated effectively, delivered on time with the only exceptions being weather delays. The dailyl workers were professional, courteous and hard-working in sometimes, grueling conditions. The homeowners had no complaints with the work performed and spoke highly of the company. Their pricing was a little higher compared to other contractors, but most know the adage is true, "you get what you pay for." Would use this company again in a heart beat and have refered them to other's as well

    This was the second project that I have contracted with CBI. Greg has experience from having worked on other horse barns/arenas and was helpful in assessing my specific needs. He was also very patient with me as I tried to decide between pea gravel and sand for the footing!
    Greg did some grading around and inside the arena a couple weeks prior to bringing the new sand in. He found and cleared an inconspicuous area for the old footing and laid it in neatly so we don't see it which was far preferable to having a huge pile of dirty sand. He then placed 2 1/2 inches of new sand in the arena.
    Greg is great to work with, friendly and knowledgeable. He works hard, gets the job done quickly and everything is neat when he leaves. His project costs are very competitive. We will definitely use him on future projects.
    And the horses love their new beach!

    The path between our horse barn and the pasture is a steep slope that crosses two ravines/culverts. The path over the lowest culvert washed out twice in four years. Erosion was also causing the slope to get steeper. CBI was one of four companies that we asked for a recommendation and estimate. They were the only company whose recommendation made sense and addressed the issues that are unique to horse properties. Greg came out within a few days of my initial call to him. I could tell by the questions he asked and by the way that he studied the area that he understood the issues, both the obvious and the not so obvious, and that he had a clear vision of what needed to be done. He put in a larger culvert and several boulder dams to slow the flow of the water to the culvert. He removed the silt from the area in front of both culverts. He created a berm on the pasture side of the path to prevent water from washing down the path and he created a path that traverses the slope from the barn to the lower culvert. I could not believe how quickly the work was completed and how neat everything looked when Greg finished. It has been a year since the work was done during which time we have had several heavy rain events. I rest easy because the dams and the culvert are easily handling the water. The path from the barn to the pastures is holding up great and is much safer for the horses who use it several times each day.

    The work started on-time and went very smoothly at every stage.  ALL of his crew were respectful, professional and cheerful throughout the project.  It was very important to me that they were respectful and responsive to not only my husband, but to me as well and everyone treated me as an equal which I appreciated.  Greg always let us know when we had to have decisions made with plenty of time.  Though any project has some amount of unpredictability, Greg was very good at explaining the steps.  He had all the supplies here on-time and the build went very smoothly.  The quality of the product is extremely high as well.  We are thrilled with the final garage.  Even our inspector noted the quality and he surely sees many, many garages.   
    Greg's crew was not only pleasant, but they were at work every day they were scheduled AND on time.  The cement crew even stayed late one night until 9pm!  The siding looks great, the grading is exactly how we wanted it, and the garage door and window is a perfect match to our house.  The electrician was also very professional and was happy to accommodate our special requests for a special RV 50-amp service panel.  
    The project finished on-time and on-budget.  I would highly recommend Greg for your project.  He is a smart contractor who created a high quality project and as a bonus has a great, pleasant and fun personality.

    Last fall we did a remodel to our home and the county inspected our spetic system which failed. We had to hire and pay for a design for a new system in order for the county to approve the permit. We hired and paid a company $450.00 to do the design. We now had one year to get bids and have a new system installed. In the spring, we contacted several companies from a list provided by the county and asked they would have any interest in providing us with an estimate to install a new septic system. Mathews Sewer Systems was one of those companies. We were very clear that we wanted a bid only (we already had a design and knew there would be a cost involved if anyone did design for us) Several representitives from various companies came out and walked our property with us and two gave us verbal bids, two companies gave us written bids all of which would include the cost of a new design once they were hired to do the work. Between 4/10/2010 and 5/24/2010 Jan Mathew, from Mathews Septic System showed up at our house four times unannounced each time. We were not impressed by her lack of professionalism and lack of follow through. Most companies had estimates to us within a week or two. On 4/10/2010 we also contacted another company and had a bid from him by 4/26/2010. In May we chose him to do install our new spetic system. The day after we chose him, Jan shows up at our door again, unnounced, telling us we owe her $650.00 and that she has the design in her hand. We were shocked, we hadn't even heard from her in 13 days, which is part of the reason we chose the other company. We told her that we had chosen another company to do the job. She insisted that we authorized her to prepare a design and that we couldn't have the design until we paid. We told her we never agreed to pay for a design and that we didn't even know she was doing one. She got very angry, stomped away from the door and started pulling the unitilty flags from the front yard. We never authorized her to do a design, not verbally, and not in writing, we have never signed anything. We simply wanted an estimate to do the whole system. We NEVER received any paperwork from them, NO design, NO estimate. To this day we have no paperwork. On 7/31 we received a bill from Mathews Sewer Systems claiming that we owed them $669.56 which included a late fee (this was our first bill). We sent them a letter on August 2nd apologizing for any missunderstanding and to please stop billing us In her bill and letter dated 8/25/2010, she claims that she mailed us the design and the estimate. We have never received anything from that company. She indicates in the letter that we gave our word and that "our words mean nothing". On 9/28/2010 we received another bill indicating they are going to take action to collect from us. I would NEVER recommend that company. They lack good communication by showig up announced, they lack professionalism by their inmature behavior, they have nothing in writing stating that we would pay, which we didn't know they were charging for, and now they attack our character and are taking "action" to collect. I know this is long, please let me know if you need clarification on any of these issues.

    Greg stopped out to see my project, he explained what he anticipated he would be able to do and gave me a bid which included pricing for design options. I asked Greg if we could delay our project's timing for 5-6 weeks and he was very accommodating. In the mean time, I received several emails from Greg with photos of other projects showing their abilities and design options. Once we scheduled the project's start date we got things rolling. Greg and crew arrived as scheduled, removed the old driveway, graded and prepared forms the first day. We encountered a rain delay but Greg was back the next day bright and early. They prepared the re-bar grid and in came the Cement Trucks! Before I new it the job was completed. A beautiful design, I refer to as picture frames, was incorporated and a sealer was applied. Greg and crew cleaned up after the project, marked the end of the driveway for no entry and explained the curing process and timing. Greg will be back in a month for a second sealer application. I love the new driveway, only the 3rd non-asphalt driveway in the neighborhood! Definitely a huge bump up in home value. Many compliments from neighbors too! A very good experience from start to finish!
