Everything You Need to Know About Palo Alto Excavation Contractors

How does invoicing/payment work for most Excavation Contractor projects in Palo Alto?

Every project differs, but you should ask any excavation contractor for an estimate, before they do any work. In fact, ask for their general payment terms before any excavation services work is done.

If the job is large and going to take longer than a day, it's common practice for excavation contractors to request a down payment. Usually, this will be around 25% so they can commence work on your excavation contractor project.

If it's a quick job, you'll likely be given an invoice/bill when the job is complete. Then it's up to you and the excavation contractor to determine if you pay immediately or can send payment at a later date.

Who should I hire if I need Excavation Services in Palo Alto?

Right now there are about 20 companies in and around Palo Alto ready to help you with your excavation services project.

    Below we've listed a few of the top Excavation Contractors on Porch:

          What should I check for once my Excavation Contractor in Palo Alto has finished working?

          Every excavation services project is going to have different results, but here are a few things to check for once any excavation services company has told you they've finished the job:

          • Obviously you want to do a visual inspection. Even if you're unfamiliar with excavation services work, this gives you the opportunity to ask questions (even basic ones like, what did you do?).
          • Ask the excavation contractor to describe what they did. Whether your excavation services project was a repair job or a building job, have them run you through what was done.
          • Compare the description provided on your excavation services project estimate to the work completed. Did the professional do what was promised?
          • Request that the excavation contractor do a follow-up visit to check on the work. Most professionals are willing to do this, especially if you ask them.
