5.0 Kevin V. Boise, ID

Great communication! Follow up after the work was done to ensure the French drain did its job after a heavy rainstorm was a great touch! Thank you!

5.0 Alex M. Meridian, ID

Josiah installed a French drain and also a pit drain for us. His work was exceptional, excellent cleanup, and final result was far superior than anything we expected. Working with Josiah was a pleasure. Communication was excellent.

5.0 Greg B. Middleton, ID

I was pleased with the professionalism and willingness to discuss options. Work was preformed quickly and on budget

5.0 Alex L. Boise, ID

Great communication

5.0 Natasha P. Boise, ID

Josiah is knowledgeable, friendly, prompt and fair. He discussed with me the project throughly and the plan and cost were clear and concise. He is the owner/operator and was not on the job, but came to the house the night before the project started and walked through everything with myself and Joe, who did the work. Both communicate very clearly and know what they are doing. I would 100% recommend this company.

Can not say enough nice things about my experience with Red Fox Excavation.

5.0 Mindy W. Boise, ID

Red Fox Excavation did an amazing job clearing a back lot and two other areas on my recently purchased property. Mr. Silva was prompt, courteous, conscientious and it is extremely evident that he cares about his customers satisfaction. He met me at my home to measure and talk me through different options and within a short time he had emailed a bid for scraping the areas to remove weeds, laying a weed barrier, delivering and compacting gravel, and removing all of the mess. He started work on Sunday and had the large job completed by Tuesday, putting in long hours to ensure the job was done correctly. He went the extra mile to clean up the staging area, which was no small feat after a spring snowstorm left the piled debris a muddy mess. I would not hesitate to recommend Red Fox Excavation for any lot clearing and gravel needs. He was professional and knowledgeable and took great pride in the job he completed..

5.0 Erin T. Eagle, ID

Josiah was very professional. He showed up when he said he would and did excellent work. He worked with us to find a creative solution for our drainage issues. His prices were fair and he did his best to find ways to save us money.

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
