    5.0 Heidi H. Troy, NY

    We had an emergency sewer line replacement and Michael was there right away and put in extra time to make sure everything was done right. He helped coordinate the various moving pieces and made sure the plumbers did exactly what needed to be done and got the job done as quickly as possible so our household could get up and running again.

    5.0 Kar M. Clifton Park, NY

    New Stone Wall - He listened to our ideas, was a good communicator and flexible. Reliable and showed up when he said he would.

    5.0 Jackie G. Fort Edward, NY

    We had an old tar and chip driveway with ruts and holes. Mike leveled all and put down a mix of gravel and dust. He took care of some drainage issues as well. He was very communicative - explained everything and considered what we wanted. Itâ s all working beautifully.

    5.0 Will S. Glens Falls, NY

    Great communication skills. Great customer service. The highest quality of work possible. Six (or more) stars would better represent the value Mike and his team bring!

    Response from Company:

    Thank you very much Will. You were a pleasure to work with as well.

    1.0 Paul D. Stillwater, NY

    I got an L-shaped deck in two sections 14 by 32 feet wide and returns behind the house at 10 by 8 feet wide. I can not use the stairs. They do not really know what they are doing, when you put hammer and saw on his hand he does not know what he is doing. At least the crew knew better but they were not able to complete it, they never knew enough to finish each part. 9 months later and it still does not pass the inspection. We learned he actually asked people/his crew to give him a good review and he never worked for them. Anyone who would like to contact me to talk about the deck or see the improper work he has done, feel free! I would rate them a zero!

    Response from Company:

    Paul was a very difficult customer to deal with. He wanted a number of things that he did not pay for and expected them to be installed for free. such as he wanted a $700 custom made metal rail system put on the stairs, which was not agreed-upon in the contract. A treated lumber rail was put up and he didn?t like it. He did whatever he could to sabotage any inspections that were done and when he realized the deck was going to pass inspection he wouldn?t let us on the property to finish one small thing the inspector asked us to do to pass the decks final inspection. Very difficult person to work for.

    Mike communicated clearly and regularly, showed up when he said he would, and completed the job on time. The retaining wall and steps are well built, and he found a more affordable solution than other contractors I spoke with. Recommended.

    5.0 John M. Burnt Hills, NY

    Mike is knowlegable, honest and thourough. The quality of their work is outstanding. I'd recommend them to anyone, any time. In fact, I already have.

    5.0 Les C. Albany, NY

    Mike was a total professional. Showed up on time. Great communication. Great work. Definitely would recommend.

    4.5 Dan A. East Schodack, NY

    I hired them for a small demolition project. Michael, the owner, was very good with communication throughout the entire process. He showed up on time, performed very satisfactory work and cleaned up the job site. I would recommend this business to anyone in need of demolition or excavation work.
