This is a terrible company. Do not hire. David Davis dumped 40-50 yards of dirty fill instead of loam. It is filled with bricks and large chunks of concrete. He will not return to remove and finish the job. After numerous calls and promises, he has failed to finish. My basement floods do to poor grading. Do not hire!

Davis and Sons were very professional, responded quickly and the end result was perfect. Our builder commented on the outstanding job Davis and Sons did. I would recommend them and use them again.

Very satisfied with the job. They did what they said they would do, in the time frame they quoted. I saved money hiring Davis. The other companies were more expensive. I would and probably will use Davis again.

Had David set foundation form and pour cement for new garage . When it was time to frame the walls were out plumb and foundation was out of square. it was brought to his attention on both these promblems. nothing ever came out of it He also gave price for little excavation work and floor slab. In my professional opinion the excavation was over priced . He never contacted to set a date and time for slab. NOT HAPPY AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Davis and Sons completed a number of challenging projects for my wife and I. First, David Davis completed the trench work for installing an undeground electric utility that required him working closely with the municipal wiring inspector and my electrician. He also installed a large, steel rebar reinforced retaining wall in our backyard -- which was a tight space to maneuver. Davis also built us a very attractive concrete driveway and supporting L-shaped wall to replace a rotten, wood timber wall on the front of our house. Many of our neighbors have commented on the attractive retaining wall and driveway David Davis built for us.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
