Out of several companies, I chose Ted Rudiger, Excavation Inc. because the company spans three generations and I appreciate professional experience. Furthermore, Mr. Rudiger's estimate was fair and he was not overcharging. Mr. Rudiger and his employee were punctual and pleasant to work with. They explained the work to me at various stages and made sure that the nearby deck was properly reinforced ...

I would not recommend anyone to hire this company! They did a job for us and (in my opinion) they totally ripped us off. We had to hire an attorney to deal with him! We had a contract for him to remove fill dirt and put down erosion control, and he did not seem to follow the contract on many levels. We had to hire someone else to correct what they did because we continued to have issues. Consultan...

First of all this was not an Angie'[Member Information Removed] List project, and to our knowledge you have went to every website possible to slander our company. Legal facts are with CCB and our insurance company, who also provided an engineer to your site, and findings were in our favor. We did have a meet set up with CCB, but you and your attorney cancelled the meeting, so we were not able to r...

Ted was great to work with. He was on time, did the work I asked him to do and exceeded my expectations with the overall quality of the work. There were roots that were buried I didn't know about and more earth to move than he had originally expected. We got it all done and are extremely happy with the result.

This was a great experience. The staff (Roberto, Tyler, Bruce, David and Ted) was excellent and kept me informed daily as what had happened and what was going to happen the next day. They cleaned up after each day and repaired a neighbors fence post that was slightly damaged during demolition. When unexpected issues came up, they found ways to make everything work. Ted ensured everything was done ...

This was my first experience using a contractor ever! The good report is due to Ted's two workers who were amazing! they worked incredibly hard, and did by hand what would have gone much smoother with a mechanical excavator, but they couldn't fit one onto my land. These guys worked for about two weeks, and I can't say enough good things about them. We ran into a few glitches, but when I said somet...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I needed a fence removed, and land next to it cleared of all debris. Debris consisted of left over Bamboo grove out of control, and a large "pile" of concrete and bricks that went deep into the ground. Also the land is a steep slope, and was covered with ivy and morning glory vines in addition to all the bamboo. Ted also offered to de-commission a dirty unused fish pond, and use the sides of it to create new stairs dug into another part of my yard.

Let me start by saying that I am a single woman, and not comfortable hiring people to do big jobs like this. All those horror stories about contractors immediately come to mind...but when I contacted Ted Rudiger in reference to my septic problem I felt reassured right away. I did contact several other companies for bids but decided to go with Ted Rudiger, Excavation, Inc. because of his honesty an...
