We had cement pylons that needed to be dug and removed, along with sand and gravel, from an area where there used to be a pool. The end result looks great. Jim came out to give us a quote, and Ed did the work. He worked very hard, and did a great job. There were some miscommunications between Jim and Ed that were a little frustrating for us. We would use this company again, and would recommend them to friends. However, we would also recommend that anyone using this company, be very clear with your communication with them. Also be sure to get a proposal / quote in writing (which we did not), and insist on a confirmation call to make sure all the information is correct before work begins. Again, we are very happy with the end result.

Unlike other contractors Mike actual came out to see the project, before his estimate. His work was done to perfection and in a timely manner. In fact he is the only contractor I have ever dealt with that always was on time. He had attention to detail and always cleaned the worksite each time he left. I would highly recommend Mike and will be using him again.

They were courteous, prompt, and professional. We had our garage demolished so we could rebuild. They cleared the site before the deadline they promised. It was all good.
