Review by in Birmingham, AL
While they built a nice wall, the workers left bottles and trash in our yard. They also destroyed our decks and then wanted to charge as much as the wall to replace the deck. At first they cut a 3rd of the deck then they took down the entire deck after they decided they did not want to replace the third they tore down. When we decided on a reasonable replacement cost for the deck they told us 2 weeks, then at the end of 2 weeks the did not show up and told us another 2 weeks. So for a month we have not been able to exit our back door because it is on a second floor.Then when we started confirming what they were going to build, they were not going to give us a deck with access to the pool. They also destroyed our front yard and left piles of gravel in the front yard that i had to later vaccuum up and reseed. They tore down lighting and conduit that was in our back yard and tore down our gate and left our property unsecured for the same time. These things led to my low rating. i see others have left great reviews, but our experience was not the same. in the end we didnt trust that they would build us a deck that we would be happy with so we cancelled the deck build and have to find someone else to build our deck. If they did better after the job I probably would recommend them but they are not recommended unless you want to clean up their mess, reseed your yard and pay more money then you would expect with a professional team.

We are very pleased and satisfied with our new retaining wall. They did a thoroughly professional job and completed it on time. They even came back to redo a small portion and ensured that we were completely satisfied.

Excellent work and good customer service from the owner. The product used, GeoStone, is very expensive but looks nice.

Review by in Gardendale, AL
Dirt Cheap Excavation was able to excavate our backyard to make the slope more manageable without the need for a retaining wall. The job was completed in one day and the price was affordable. They did a great job, we couldn't be happier!!

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.
