Excavating reviews in Washington DC

    Barratt Construction
    My husband and I live in over 100 year old rowhome. The basement was unfinished and also riddled with asbestos and lead pipes. We decided to roll that remediation into a full basement remodel and chose to go with Barratt Construction to do so. I could not be happier with the experience, the work they did, or the final product! The estimate process was quick and clear. At every step, Peter & David were available immediately by text and phone if any questions or issues arose. The are honest, communicative, and cared deeply about the quality of the final construction. The workmen were skilled, courteous, and efficient. The project -- which involved remediation, excavating 8 inches to get a normal-height basement ceiling, & the interior construction of a family room, laundry room, bedroom, several large closets, and a closed storage area. Despite the huge scope of the project, they finished earlier than estimated. We will absolutely work with them again for any renovation!

    A A Action Waterproofing Inc
    AAAction Waterproofing provides excellent service at an amazing price for what you're getting. I would highly highly recommend them for anyone in the DMV. These guys don't apply a cookie cutter approach to waterproofing. They make sure to identify the real source and innovate a solution that works for the space. I can rest easy knowing they put thought into how to waterproof my condo.

    East Coast Landscape Design
    Mark Simpson and East Coast Landscaping were great to work with on this project. At every step of the way, Mark worked with us to get what we want, and stay within the budget we had set. They were able to completely change our backyard from a plain old DC yard with a less than ideal deck, into an oasis in NE DC. They were able to take my original plans for our yard and create a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the DC work life and stay within budget while still adding in the little extras we came up with in the last few days. The value of the work done will add 2 times the amount spent on the project once we decide to sell and move on form this house. But that will be tough to do now that we have the backyard of our dreams. I would highly recommend East Coast Landscaping for any work you are considering getting done to your house. They are professionals and know what they are doing. It is well worth getting a quote from Mark on your next project, as they were not over priced and certainly not hard to work with through out the project. They are a quality company who valued us as customers. They where willing to come back a month later to do touch ups from the project, and fix our gate which we foolishly left open for the wind to slam shut and damage.

    Green Future Construction
    Thomas and Eli were a very professional team and a pleasure to work with. I had a retaining wall and fence built and throughout the process, they kept me informed with detailed updates. The construction was delayed due to weather and permit issues, but once it began, it was done in less than two weeks. My yard looked like a disaster zone during construction - which Thomas had warned me about, but he was true to his word when the crew cleaned everything up after the job was completed. I must give high praise to the workers who were prompt and reliable. Best of all, Green Future repaved much of my old driveway and provided boxwood for my flower boxes at no extra cost. I'm very happy with the finished project, that due to Thomas' design concept, turned out much better than I expected. I will use them again.

    NV Waterproofing & Foundation Repair
    I hired them to install a large French drain with an outdoor sump pump in my garden, as the garden was getting flooded during heavy storms. NV did a great job. They performed the work quickly and to very good standards. They were on the more expansive side of the spectrum of quotes I received but so far it seems that this was well worth it. In addition, when the sump pump they had installed got accidentally damaged by a gardener a few months later, NV came back as soon as I called them and fixed the pump (for a reasonable price)..

    John Himchak Construction Company Inc.
    When we bought our house, we inherited a detached garage in bad shape -- two of its three brick walls were cracked and caving in due to decades of poor drainage and water damage. Mr. Himchak worked with us to design and implement a project to excavate the garage (which was partially buried in our back yard), demolish the two damaged walls and rebuild them, repair the garage roof, put in improved drainage and build a new set of concrete stairs from our backyard down to the alley. He was responsive and kept us in the loop at every stage of the process. The work is of exceptionally high quality. He helped us deal with a couple of follow-up issues with no complaints and no problems. It was a major project and an expensive one, but it was necessary work and we know it was done right for the long haul.

    All Aspects Waterproofing
    We received excellent service from all Aspects from the first visit to the end of the work. The company representative carefully listened to our problem (water seeping through our basement wall), explained our options very clearly and helped us confirm what the best solution would be. Based on other quotes we had received, their price and service offering were competitive. The work was tricky because it involved removing a concrete walkway and excavating dirt down to the house footer in a very narrow walkway next to our neighbors' fences. The job was done very professionally and was well-supervised. Everything was left clean at the end. All Aspect was responsive throughout, stuck to the announced time frame and budget. Definitely recommend.

    5th Gen Group
    This project could have been the type to cause months of stress and frustration with any other contractor, but Christian and the folks at 5th Gen made sure it didn't. We had the floor of an entire room ripped up because of water damage, including the structure down to the dirt and part of the wall. Their estimate was thorough and their pricing was very fair, especially given the level of service. They were always timely, attentive, and professional, and somehow kept the work space very clean. In the end, the only way to tell any work had been done was that it looked better than before. We're looking forward to working with them on some fun projects in the future, like remodeling.

    Sino-American General Contracting
    Working with Sino-America General Contracting was excellent from start to finish. Our project was a complete redo of the basement - we had demo'd floors, walls, and ceiling ourselves, and hired Mason and his team to help install a custom bathroom under the stairs complete with custom shower pan, under floor heating, and tiled walls. We also had them build a small mechanical room, install insulation, redo flooring, redo drywalls, build a drywall frame around the HVAC, install new vents and ducts, and install recessed lighting. They also built a bannister for the stairs leading to the basement and installed a matching railing and bannister for the upstairs. Finally the installed new doors for the upstairs and downstairs, and moved the downstairs door to the right a few inches in order to accommodate our design. This necessitated external brickwork and they were able to match the 70 year old brick extremely well. From the initial meeting Mason was responsive and professional as we went back and forth on the design of the bathroom. The designer (whose name I sadly can't remember) did a fantastic job with clever use of space and a keen understanding of how the design will translate into real life. Experienced in AutoCAD - they provided clear and very accurate 2D renderings and beautiful 3D renderings of the finished design, including 3D renderings of the style of sinks, toilet, lights, and mirrors we wanted. The contract was well presented and explained with the scope of the project clearly identified. At no point was anything unclear. He worked with a punch list with holdback until the punch list completed. Communication of contractor's needs and schedules were well coordinated with mine so there were no surprise missed days. Worked weekends to help expedite project completion. Any issues or concerns that we had during construction were explained or addressed right away. There was an accidental error during installation of the under floor heating and Mason and his team addressed it which required removing tile, reinstalling the heating system, testing, and replacing tile. They built a good relationship of trust with excellent communication throughout The quality of the work is excellent and stands up to close scrutiny. Smooth, crisp, and even drywall and corners, including on strange angles and niches. Beautiful, uniform color application Beautiful tiling and corners. The attention to detail was also very good. As an example we turned the remaining space under the stairs into a kitty-litter area including custom trapezoidal door and externally vented bathroom fan. Despite it being in a low-traffic area, all the work in that miniature room was of the same quality - crisp corners, well-joined shoe-moulding, and nicely painted edges. I recommend Sino-American Construction without hesitation.

    Excavation/Underpinning Elkot's General Services
    WOW! All I can say is that Al is a super guy to work with. We live in Florida and had to rely solely on Mr. Elkot's superior skills from afar. He went to task, drew up the plans, submitted them for approval and completed the job to my satisfaction. He kept us informed all the way through the process and completed the job with zeal and enthusiasm. I too am a contractor and have made my living in the area flipping houses. My standards are extremely high (having 40 plus years in the business) and Al Elkot exceeded my expectations on every level. Not only did he complete this job for us, but noticed a few other issues that partially contributed to the situation and offered to correct them at a reasonable price. We give Elkot's General Services an overall "A" rating and highly recommend this firm to anyone who desires to be treated fairly. The most important item in any job outside of doing it correcty is completing it 100% which he did. He left no stone unturned and it looks great. In addition, he has givin us a warranty which I doubt we will ever need to exercise since the job was done correctly the first time. WELL DONE AL!
