Excavating reviews in Lincoln

Real People ~ Real Reviews ~ Real Results

  • They came out, and they determine where we needed the sprinkler heads installed for adequate coverage for the lawn and plants. They did all of the digging. They sunk all the lines and the sprinkler heads. They tested it and made sure everything was right. So, they had to use the control panel that they put in the garage. They did some excavates. They had to put the water lines in. It is wonderful, except for the time that we broke a sprinkler head and then, we had John Henry's come out and do that sewer work, one of the sprinkler heads got broken. Other than that it works perfectly.

  • Rosendo gave a bid within two hours of the first contact. He completed the concrete work in one day, tear out and replace.  The garage floor is excellent.  Very quality work.  Price below the bid.  I would recommend this company highly.

  • Rosendo was very easy to contact, and he and his crew were very professional, friendly, and easy to work with.  He was very punctual.  He came over the same day I contacted him to get a bid and he e-mailed it to me by the next morning.  His bid was very reasonable, and he started the project within a week of contacting him.  The cost to extend the patio was also very reasonable. He did the work fast and he was thorough.  He let me know what he had done to keep the patio and sidewalk areas from sinking into the ground by pounding ground concrete over the dirt and using rebar and wire. He had the work done in one day. He also cleaned up after the work was done and didn't leave anything laying around in the yard.  Before hiring him, I had checked reviews for P&R on Angie's List and on other sites and found all of the reviews to be very positive and now I know why. I am very impressed with his work and the price he charged.  I would highly recommend Rosendo and his crew for their quality of work, fair prices, and professionalism.

  • P & R concrete returned my inquiry call right away.  They came out
    that same night to look at the job and took measurements.  The next day I
    had an estimate emailed to me.  I tried to call another Angie's list
    contractor with an A rating, but never received a call back.  I did
    research on line and knew the estimate to be fair.  I had a new side
    walk from the front stoop to the street within one week.  The job was
    very well executed.  P & R has an excellent rating from many
    previous customers and this heavily influenced my decision to go with
    them.  I am now one of those satisfied customers.

  • Rosendo was very professional from the first contact, he called back and came to the house within half an hour of my first inquiry.  He emailed me a bid in 3-4 days and let me know that it would be 3 weeks before he could get to our job.  That was fine with us and we accepted his bid.  He called me a few days before they were ready to start on our project so we had time to clean out our garage.  It took 2 days for them to finish a large project and the crew was friendly, professional and hard-working the entire time.  We were extremely impressed with them and often went outside to tell them how pleased we were.  They ran into a large tree root that was lodged under the front corner of our garage.  They let us know about it, asked how we wanted to handle it, and then took it out without adding any additional labor to our bid.  Rosendo always stopped to answer my questions, address our concerns, and cheerfully completed a fantastic job.  We had delayed doing this work for a very long time thinking it would be a painful process, but this crew made it very effortless.  They cleaned up everything and even put back the grass that had to be dug out for the sidewalk.  All landscaping was put back in place.  We could not be more pleased!  Wish we could find contractors like this for all of our work!!

  • Overall we are very pleased with this company.  There was a delay in getting back to us after the initial meeting but that was because of a computer breakdown on their end.  After this delay, the entire process took approximately the better part of two days and one very short third day all within the same week.  The design of the steps near the driveway is vastly improved.  They look wonderful.  We are also very pleased with the pool area concrete and the steps to the backyard.  We feel this is a very big home improvement and that the cost was reasonable compared to other companies we have had in the past  Workers were friendly and willing to answer questions. They seemed proud of their work and they should be.

  • P & R showed up and I explained what I needed done. He took the measurements and discussed how everything was going to be done. By the next morning, I had an estimate with a detail description. I asked them to start on July 8th. On July 8th they were there and by noon most of  the driveway was gone. When I came home from work that evening, the old driveway and the walk way to the house were gone. The hump in the driveway was smoothed out and the base was on the driveway and forms were in. On July 9th, they laid the wire mesh and the concrete was poured. That evening they came back and took the concrete saw to put in the joints. On the 10th they had a little bit on concrete work to finish up from the end on the driveway to the street. I met with the owner and
    he showed me how he solved my problem with the window well for drainage. What a perfect idea. They cleaned up everything afterwards. Would use them again?? You bet. They did a very professional job. I am extremely satisfied.

  • After agreeing on the project, he gave us a timeline for starting.  He ended up being able to come early, and checked with us regarding that.  He came at the times he said he would and his crew was also timely and respectful.  He told us how long it would take and what problems might arise (rain!!), and kept us informed about how that would work. 
    It did rain, but he managed that and was able to finish by the next day.  The rain caused it to be a bit more messy than would have been anticipated, but he was EXCEPTIONAL at cleaning things up and we are very happy with how it looks. 
    If anything comes up, I am not concerned that he will take care of the problem.

  • Dave Spohr presents with confidence, with enough competence coming through the sales talk that we finally decided to select his approach.  The hesitancy was that unlike another landscaper who carefully detailed his estimate, Spohr's estimate was quite vague.  It took a while to get past that, which was based mostly on some word of mouth recommendations.  Dave is definitely a character, not a cookie cutter person.  We finally just took a chance that he would do what he said he would do, and that it would be an interesting ride that we hoped we wouldn't regret.
    The work was to be completed by the end of October, about six weeks start to finish.  Adding on say, two weeks for the additional excavation and foundation, mid-November.  Sod was laid the first week of December, with the sprinkler system finishing in the third week of December.
    Areas for improvement: clarity of the initial bid; clarity of cost adders as decisions were made along the way; self-managing of schedule rather than over-promising on multiple jobs; conveying Dave's sense of excellence and attention to detail to his employees; and meeting his own schedule promises.  One of the subcontractors seemed much more responsive to Dave than to us, as far as getting his portion started.  Some definite gaps between Dave's expertise and attention to detail compared to a few of his employees, which included leaving the grade of the "sunken patio" area outside the egress windows incorrectly directing water toward the basement, and in rough rather than raked condition.  One employee plumbed the outside sump pump drain in a totally unacceptable way aesthetically, which Dave corrected.
    Areas of strength:  assessment of needed work with robust solutions proposed, contacts with capable subcontractors, mostly excellent employees, Dave is a wizard with a Bobcat; and listened well to our perspectives, concerns, and questions.  I appreciate his willingness to bill in accordance with work done as well as the target budget--the bill could have been higher!  We much appreciated his pro-active looking at the overall property multiple times along the way, and offering his suggestions as possibilities.
    Prior to our relocation to Lincoln from NW Wyoming, we used contractors very sparingly, as I did most of the work myself.  With our new house and my new job, plus some debilitating knee problems, we used a lot of contractors between moving in August and the end of the year. I think we could have done a better job of insisting on clarity and deadline-meeting, but we are not highly confrontive people.  Overall we expected it would be quality work, and expensive, and that would be better than poor work and expensive.  Both expectations were correct.

  • Dave's business was very busy with many wet basements when we called, but he made our job a priority.  Ours was a big job, with many phases, but Dave Spohr was always on top of the schedule, his workers and all sub contractors.  The total job took about 3 months and turned out beautifully.  We love it.
