I hired Rick to fix my gravel driveway, clear land and put in a pad for a 40 x 60 barn. He gave me a very good quote, and over performed during the job. The barn went up without a hitch and the drive is holding up perfectly. Two months after the completion we had flooding and a river flowed down my driveway, and the next day the driveway looked great. I would recommend ricks work and expertise to anyone and everyone. He is very professional and courteous at all times. A great guy and great excavator.

I hired Forrest Excavation to correct drainage issues from my house and to apply erosion mulch to my front yard. Richard and Zach arrived as scheduled and worked tirelessly to complete the work efficiently in one day. They took great care to “do the job correctly the first time” to avoid issues later. My yard is so much improved. Richard is very personable and easy to talk to. I will hire him again if needed and give him my highest recommendation.

Review by in Auburn, ME
The perimeter drain around my foundation was no longer working. Every time it would rain, I had water behind the foundation wall and developed a good size crack and that would be where the water came in. Also from the chimney door. Richard called me on a Sunday morning, came out later that day and explained it all! He explained every detail about what needed to be done .Excavating, drainage, crack sealing, and coating. By the way this was done January-February. I can't say enough about Richard, Zack and Brad. I would highly recommend Forrest Excavation. Thank you Richard

Excellent experience working with Rick on our project in Weld. He came out to our property twice and explained the job in detail beforehand. Performed extra tasks like stacking the wood from trees that had to come down, moving a boat and creating a walkway not in the original proposal. Kept us updated on his progress since we live in MA and were not there to watch the work performed. Would highly recommend him and his crew!

I was pleased beyond words. He was prompt, polite,trustworthy and very helpful. The results were extraordinary. My back yard has been transformed. Richard even transplanted my roses. He offered to do this for me! I recommend his company to everyone. I can't find the words to express my gratitude for a job well done!

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.
