Excavating reviews in Fairfax

    Long's Corp
    Cannot state enough how wonderful this company is! They came out on a new construction build (8 months old house) for a sewage smell in the basement. I suspected the ejection pump/sealing. Initially, they sealed it up, and some other vent leaks. However, 3 days later, the smell was back. They sent out "their best guy" who identified the issue almost immediately-a sheared-off main sewer line. Got a reasonable quote, and they got the job. Did a great job! Almost 2 years later, I notice a water leak in the basement, and upon further inspection (rain storm) I found rainwater leaking in through the foundation, right where the repair was. I called Long's again, they came out quickly. Called me to say, "you're not going to like this, but we need to dig up the foundation again, as the seal may have broken." They did just that, and fixed it perfectly. I have witnessed several rain storms since then, and have inspected their top-quality repair, and it's sound. They didn't charge me a dime to come out again, whereas a lesser company might have quibbled over the cost. They didn't-they stand behind their work. I am very happy with them, and recommend them highly.

    Exterior Waterproofing Experts
    Excellent start to finish. Dave was responsive, punctual, thorough and informative in his review of the problem and recommended solution. We felt the timeline and price were both reasonable--we could not be more satisfied with the entire experience and feel confident that our wet basement problem is finally resolved and that if we experience any problems, Dave and his crew will be just as responsive. Couldn't recommend more highly!

    JP Companies Inc
    Great. They came on time, did in the amount of time they promised and did a great job. The driveway is finished very cleanly and professionally. Looks amazing. Just what we wanted. Only thing I'd note is that they dug away a lot of dirt and so water now collects next to the driveway in the crack between the driveway and where the grass now starts. However, once I called and talked to them about it, they sent someone to fill in the dirt. They came with a whole truck full of dirt and spent some time filling the gaps in.

    Affordable Oil and Tank Removal
    This company was great. I had my fuel oil tank removed from my basement. Brian (owner) promptly responded for my request for quotation and explained the process to me in detail. We scheduled my job a week and a half later. He arrived promptly and prepped the tarps and ventilation. Job was done professionally and quickly. I would definitely use them again. The price was extremely reasonable.

    Cornerstone Excavation Inc
    We had a 40yo in-ground pool that was in poor condition. After years of debating what to do with it, and with the kids having grown and gone, we finally agreed to have it removed along with the deteriorated fence surrounding it. We contacted Ed, the owner and operator of the company, after doing a fair amount of searching, starting with the Virginia DPOR site where we found contractors with the licenses for excavating and pool work. Ed was the first to come out to discuss the project with us and sent a proposal shortly thereafter. We did get other bids, but felt very confident in Ed. He was patient, friendly, and obviously experienced with this type of work. Shortly after reaching an agreement, he had pulled permits with the county. About a day before he was to begin, I rented a submersible pump and drained the pool (an option Ed suggested as we pressed for savings). The next day, Ed came with his dump truck, skidsteer and excavator. He got right to work and by the end of the day, had made amazing progress. The next day, he arrived early and worked all day without any noticeable break. He came back the third day and finished up in the morning. Each day, Ed explained what he was going to be doing and was happy to answer all my questions. The four of us working in our home office were fascinated watching him work, which one described as watching a ballet - he is that skillful with the skidsteer and excavator. His work was excellent, and as a bonus, Ed is one of the nicest and most interesting guys you could hope to meet. I ended up taking a lot of his time talking with him about some of his other interests and hobbies, and even though he had other jobs waiting for him, he never seemed too rushed to answer a question. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat. If only more contractors were like Ed, life would be a lot easier!

    Chesapeake Paving
    The work was completed as scheduled on October 18, 2017. To obtain estimates I selected four contractors from Angie's list, based on reviews and located any available references for each. I contacted all four and asked for estimates. Because I picked one of the busiest times of the year all four were intermittent with their initial communication. This was not an issue for me as I was most interested in quality and not in a rush. Three vendors eventually responded and furnished estimates. One came out and looked at the driveway but did not submit an estimate. Chesapeake was actually the last estimate I obtained as they were extremely busy and I needed to meet with them in the evening. Of the three estimates I received, two were consistent and very close and the third was almost double the other two for the same work (lesson here perhaps?). I selected Chesapeake based on the professionalism of the inspection, company reputation, reviews and their reasonable estimate. Once their inspection was complete I received the estimate quickly and all further communication with the company was timely with quick response. The actual work was scheduled for approximately 10 days after I received the estimate. The crew, led by Mark, arrived on time with what looked like all the heavy equipment in the world. Mark's crew was professional and clearly experienced. They had the old driveway out and the new one in place in 7 and a half hours (three inch + substrate and at least three inches of asphalt. The work was surprisingly quiet and looks to be extremely well done. Everyone was courteous and pleasant throughout. The job site was left looking better than when they arrived and they even curled up the hose I left out. All traces of gravel spillage or asphalt was removed from the street. Overall this job was a '6' on a '5' point scale. Mark took the time to provide a handout and explain initial care for new asphalt. If the driveway lasts as well as the conduct of the job one could not reasonably ask for anything better -- The company was a pleasure to work with throughout.

    American Plumbing Inc
    Dan and his team optimistically and carefully took the time to locate the leak, saving us thousands of dollars. Not only did the work of American Plumbing save us money, but they only needed to dig 2 holes instead of ripping up our entire yard. It is this hard work, knowledge and optimism that got the job done, and got it done well. We had received another quote from another plumber and they only wanted to rip up our yard and replace the entire line. This is a clear distinction between American Plumbing and other companies. The attached image shows the extent of the work they had to do above ground.

    Bright Construction Group
    It was one of my best experiences with any contractors I have used in the past. The owner Rui, the project manager Rui as well as the crew were knowledgeable, friendly and delivered a top quality project. The project manager, Rui provided helpful information and suggestion in the design phase, and supervised the crew to execute the job beautifully. Their pricing was very reasonable as well. I would use them again and highly recommend this company for anyone who needs masonry work done.

    Premium Lawn & Landscape
    I highly recommend Premium. With their reputation and years in business, I expected them to do a great job��� and they did. What exceeded my expectations was the crew���s attention to me, the customer. My favorite example: I walked out of my house dressed nicely for work and carrying a heavy bag of garbage. A member of the crew quickly walked over grabbed it from me and said, ���I���ve got this for you.��� What he didn���t know was that I was newly pregnant. That day Premium won my loyalty��� but they���ve continued to earn it ever since. We use them for our regular lawn care and also for other hardscaping/special projects. They removed dying trees, redid our front sidewalk, they wrapped the foundation of our house in rock, and they demoed an old detached garage. We are now in design discussions to put a stone patio off the back of our house. Every project has been executed well and pricing is fair. Honestly, if you have lawn care or hardscaping needs, you���d be doing yourself a disservice if you didn���t talk to them.
