Angel and his crew made two pillars and four below-ground concrete pylons as footing for a 4-legged gazebo to straddle a circular pavilion in my backyard. His crew also poured a 7’ x 2’ concrete slab in our side yard to function as a grill parking spot. Angel had car trouble the first day, which delayed the start of work to two days later than we had agreed on. His crew spread the work over three evenings, delaying another crew's start date for assembly of the gazebo by two days. The posted rate for Angel's work was $45/hour. When the work was finished, Angel presented me with a bill that would have charged $40 an hour for each of his crew's 5 laborers. Angel may be an engineer worth $45 an hour, but someone digging a hole for concrete does not earn $40 an hour, so we renegotiated. Angel received $45/hour, and each of his workers earned $20/hour. We declined to pay for hours when multiple workers were present, but only one of them was working, since the others were just waiting for Angel to arrive. In addition to wages and materials, we paid $150 for gas. Angel would have spent less on gas, if the work had been concentrated into fewer days, which I would have preferred. The end result is: the anchors are level. The two front pillars have air pockets as large as 0.5" h x 2.5" in the sides, indicating the cement wasn’t packed down well. (I will use filler to get a smooth surface, after which paint will be necessary to hide the filler.) The work started late, was spread over too many days, and the concrete pillars should not have the air pockets they have. On the up side, I appreciated how clean the worksite was when Angel finished. He also gave me a few expert answers to questions I had about other potential concrete projects. Angel is polite and knowledgeable. Even so, it is important to be very specific with your timeline, cost expectations, and aesthetics up front.

Johnny texted me that he'd arrive 20 minutes late, which he did, exactly. He arrived without a leaf-vacuum--I needed leaf removal and weeding. I showed Johnny the job. Rather than return with working equipment another day, he chose to work manually, raking. Then his wife joined him. Johnny had an efficient way of working to address the various yard areas to arrive at a complete, finished job. They worked quietly together for a half day to finish the work. They knew the various plants so I didn't have to worry that they'd remove (or leave) the wrong things. The work was done near perfectly; very nice end results.

This guy is a true professional! Amazing job. From first contact to completion of the job, I was extremely satisfied with his work. He is highly skilled with an excavator, fast yet careful, and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. He maneuvered through a narrow gate with absolutely zero clearance, avoided the vegetable garden, dug a 30 inch deep trench around the perimeter of my 125 ft fence in a cramped backyard, installed a bamboo rhizome barrier, and back filled, all in five hours! He saved me time and money. I can’t speak highly enough of Mitchell.

My Husband and I had purchased a little over an acre of land in Fallbrook and hired WEST Construction to do the excavation work for our new home site. Despite the fact that our land was extremely rocky and had poor soil conditions, West was able to complete the project early! I was in the process of finalizing paperwork and looking for a contractor to install turf for our side and back yard when I was told that WEST also did turf. I was pleasantly surprised and immediately hired them for the job. We had a little over 2,300 SF of lawn turf installed and they had it completed in 3 days!!! I can’t give enough thanks to the guys in the field for all their hard work and professionalism. I would definitely hire WEST again. Thanks guys for your hard work!

We chose Nobel construction to install multiple new windows at our main office and it turned out to be a great decision.Their office personnel were polite and friendly every time I called, the contractor Igor was always prompt and had an answer to every question I had, and most importantly, did a stellar job on what was not an easy project.We hope to have our roof treated this fall and recommend them to everyone.

    We had the joy of working with Palmer Excavating for our back yard project. Construction is never fun, but these guys were very efficient and got the job done on time and on budget. They started by coming to meet us and giving an estimate. We had a back yard that needed about 20 dump trucks of dirt removed. They removed the dirt according to the plans that my designer drew up and even worked around an old well structure. These guys are great.
