"I called them once and they called back to set up the appointment. I called to reschedule, and we rescheduled but they never showed up. I called to see about having them come out again and they never showed or called to reschedule."

"The water company said that the meter was running constantly and that I had used 60,000 gallons of water the past month (a bill in excess of $300). I called another Angie's List company -

Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
at 11 and he was at my house at 6PM (due to my schedule, not his). He looked at the problem, was very familiar with it, and at 8:30 the next morning he was at my house ready to work and the job was completed by 3PM. Better yet, the work was done well --- no mess in my house and very little evidence that there had been any excavation in my yard (will probably be fine after a little watering or rain, please). He told me that he has been doing this for 20+ years --- shoddy workmanship and materials used in new houses that were built keeps him in business! He offered me a
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
priced option of $800 but all that involved was fixing the leak where the pipe had cracked entering the house --- no guarantee at that point it wouldn't crack somewhere else so my thought was to fix it right and be done with it. Luckily he was able to run the new pipe through the tunnel left by the old pipe so there was only a little digging at the house and then about a 10-foot square at the meter in the middle of my yard.

is a very nice and friendly guy and he does quick work (sensitive to the fact that expensive water company water was pouring out of the broken line) and he does great work. You won't go wrong!

did a great job. Their equipment was very clean and well cared for. Even though it was raining they took great care to not 'tear up' the yard while digging the needed area. All that was left upon completion what a small mound of dirt an top of the newly installed line. Very nice job!"

"Our basement flooded & I had a few dif companies come to my house to get ideas about improving drainage & preventing future basement flooding.
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
at
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
was the only person who seemed to share my desire to fix potential outdoor drainage problems before addressing potential indoor issues. One company just wanted to sell us a $2500 sump pump, even though we already have a working 1/2 hp sump pump & 1/3 hp battery back-up pump.
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
was willing to discuss additional indoor preventative measures like installing a 2nd sump pit but first wanted to make sure that our outdoor drainage was up to par. A previous company (Eco Plumbers) had come out & cleaned both main drains & checked them with a camera; this cost us about $160. When
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
came out just a few days after to check the gutters, he wanted to also snake the main drains. I told him that this wasn't necessary, since the other company had just done them.
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
said that if his company was going to check our drainage, they wanted to check it all and not rely on another company's work. It's a good thing that
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
insisted b/c, after being outside for about 20-30 mins., he came to my door & wanted me to come outside to show me the large roots and a weird piece of knotted panty hose (?? who knows??) that his younger brother (it's a family company) had snaked out of the left drain - the one that had supposedly just been cleaned & checked! They climbed up on my roof & checked all of my gutters (which they told me were quite clean) & then repaired the broken connection on 1 of the gutters.

also talked w/me about how I should get the drainage ditch in front of my home re-dug & have gravel & a drainage pipe put in so that the standing water would properly drain (something that many of my neighbors have already done but we had put off b/c it costs thousands of dollars). Not even 2 days after
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
completed their work, we had a severe but brief thunderstorm around 5:15 AM. Since we couldn't sleep thru the thunderstorm and were already awake, my husband & I both went outside w/flashlights to check our gutters & the main drainage pipes. We were relieved to see that our front gutters, which previously had water spraying BACK out, were running smoothly and the main drains that deposit water into the front drainage ditch were both gushing out water.
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
had said that if we saw water spraying back out of our gutters, we would need to have larger, 6" gutters installed. so we were curious to see what would happen. We might still install a 2nd sump pit but, for now, we are not so anxious during storms, knowing that all of the roof run-off is now draining properly. Our only issue is that on 8/31, our satellite TV service was out (we rarely watch TV, so we didn't realize our satellite was out until then) and the Dish TV people told us that the error code was related to our cable line. After checking our indoor lines & connections and being unable to resolve the problem over the phone, we had to schedule a repairperson to come out to fix the problem. The repair guy went outside & easily found that the TV cable had been severed, right where
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
had repaired our gutter connection. I emailed
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
to see if he was willing to reimburse us for the cost of the repair ($45), since it seems directly related to their repair work of our gutter. If it turns out that cutting the cable line was necessary in order to replace the gutter connector, then that is fine. But we weren't told that this was the case, so I'm hoping/assuming that
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
will reimburse us for the repair cost. All in all, I would definitely recommend

is really personable and was easy to work with, which made the process go smoothly. He took the time to walk us through the details of the quote, which we accepted. When the workers,

"Communication with the owner leading up to the work was good, and responsiveness was very good.
Arrived on time, did a very good job of cleanly and safely removing the oil tank, filling hole with gravel, and replacing original soil.
Price for service was very reasonable, and work was performed as promised.

Kiefner responded to our request for help a day after leaving him a voice mail message and came to the house to view the situation the very next day. He was professional and very helpful. As it turned out our job was out of the scope of his services. He recommended another company. We would definately call him again with any gutter work, drain unclogging, septic line repair, etc.

"We are thrilled with our patio and landscape. It was an easy process start to finish.
Powell Excavators Provider Name Locked
provided great ideas and his crew did excellent execution. The crew was very professional and polite with all my questions. When I needed clarification on the paver step installation - they immediately pulled up a photo on their phone and made an excellent suggestion to slightly modify my original plan.

and his crew went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this company.
