My wife and I are Sellers in a real property transaction on the West Slope. Eric LaRue provided prompt, informed advice about sewer line inspections. The buyers' real estate agent obtained a scope and then prepared a report claiming $4500 was required to dig out and replace part of the sewer line. We sent the video scope to Eric for independent evaluation. First he analyzed their film to determine...

Shortly after our home sewage-disposal system failed, we requested bids from several contractors to fix the problem. We chose The Excavators because of the company's excellent reputation, as indicated by former clients. Our house, situated on a low hillside, was serviced by a 60-foot-long, outdated "Orangeburg" sewer pipeline that was installed in 1962 when the house was built. This pipe joined a ...

The Excavators LLC came in after another plumbing company unsuccessfully tried to fix the problem. They were able to determine what the problem was and it was really significant. The problem was really complicated but they told us what was needed and were super helpful and supportive every step of the way. We had to have the street closed off, involvement with the City, major digging - and it got ...

Eric was able to determine that a very costly sewage pipe block extended farther than was originally identified, he was able to get City workers to come out within an hour, discuss how the problem might have come about, and in the end the City will be fixing the problem the next business day. We were so relieved by Eric's being readily available to help us and his expertise in solving the problem.

How often can you say "wonderful " his team even saved our underground sprinkler systems!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We are in the process of a whole house renovation on a 90 yr. old Portland residence. The sewer hadn't failed yet but was in need of help. Eric was referred to us by American Plumbing who we had used on our rental property. After scooping Eric said we're good candidates for sewer relining because we have cement sections. Eric was ALWAYS so professional but at the same time easy to talk with and fun to be around. Hard to believe when you think of shelling out multiple thousand $ that you hadn't planned on. Job from start to finish amazingly neat and even had a broken rain drain replaced.
