Dirt Works Testimonials

We wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the good work you have done to help us save our 100 year old house. The circle drive to fix the drainage problem was a genius idea. We were able to fix everything that needed to be fixed, the foundation, new patio, bad wood, and drainage problem, at a reasonable price and time frame. We have gotten so many compliments on everything. Thank you very much.

Alan Vaughan has been a friend to our family for a number of years. But friendship was not the primary reason he was selected for work at our homes. His work at other sites and the quick response to our needs made the choice simple for us. Mr. Vaughan has completed 4 large construction projects for our family at various locations in the Kansas City area.

  • Raytown, Missouri – Replaced a cracked and heaving patio that allowed water to run back to the foundation of the home and installed support posts and beams under a settling basement wall
  • Richmond, Missouri – Our sons home had a buckling wall due to ground water pressure in his basement. Dirt Works successfully created drains and channels to relieve the pressure, installed support beams and straightened the wall.
  • Richmond, Missouri – On two separate projects, Dirt Works installed new sidewalks and driveway areas. The work was done quickly and the front walk made very attractive. The driveway work connected onto a state highway. Dirt Works handled all state and local permits without the need for our own involvement.

The type and quality of work that Dirt Works did for our family’s homes, should we have other construction needs, will definitely place them in consideration for the job. -Leonard Lacy – Richmond Missouri

We were having a lot of water coming in the basement for years and it has taken a real toll on our house. We had received bids from other companies through the last 5 years and Dirt Works was not only the best price, but he personally walked through different options with us that others did not even offer. After the infrastructure and the concrete work finished we have had some pretty heavy rains, but NO water in our basement and we love the new patio! The bottom line is that Dirt Works did what they said within the budget we had and it works well and very nice. I highly recommend this company and Alan to anyone in need of their services.

Dirt Works Excavating replaced my sewer line and reconnected my house to a new city sewer line tap in March of 2012. They were professional, efficient, and constantly asking my opinion. It is apparent that they are interested in providing good customer service and satisfaction. I am happy to recommend them to future customers.

I am happy to write a letter of recommendation for Dirt Works and Alan Vaughan. I have used them to repair two places in my basement and found their work to be both affordable and professional. Alan explained all parts of the process as well as fixing the drainage around the problem area of my foundation to fix the problem. I would happily use Dirt Works again should the need arise.

I am writing to recommend the services of Alan Vaughan of Dirt Works Excavations and Construction. Our company has hired Dirt Works to do several projects over the years for us at our mobile home park in Liberty, Missouri and we have been very satisfied with the results.

In our experience, we have seen that Alan is honest and trustworthy and this shows in the quality of his services. He follows through on all that he says he will do and more! He has poured several driveways, sidewalks and foundation footings for us and helped us clear land for our projects. He performs the job beyond our expectations and does a good job of clearing up the work site when the job is over.

We have always found him to be knowledgeable of the relevant codes and applicable laws, and helpful in presenting possible solutions to problems. He is always cheerful and willing to help. His staff is respectful and hard-working. His bidding process is very fair and he does not change his invoices without complete understanding between the parties of what work is being done. In short, Dirt Works is a pleasure to work with. I recommend them without hesitation.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dirt Works who came to Independence to repair a plumbing problem we had recently. He was able to begin work sooner than any other plumbing company, and do more at a lower cost. Dirt Works removed and replaced about half of our main drain to the sewer and then came back and removed the major cause or our problem – a large tree growing right over the drain. They stayed at the task until all our drains, both in the house, and the main were running free and clear. They are a great company that I can highly recommend without reserve.

- David Graham – Independence, Missouri

We contracted with Dirt Works to re-grade and improve our driveway. We found them to be knowledgeable and competent with all aspects of the project from material recommendation to equipment operation. Alan was honest in his transactions and fair to deal with. I would recommend Dirt Works for future work.

I hired Dirt Works to dig up and replace a waterline in the front of my house. From that meeting I decided to ask them to do some other things around the house. They waterproofed my basement which included digging up my front yard.

After all the work was done, to my satisfaction, I was well pleased with all the work and plan on having them come back to do some more work around my house.

I feel that I can trust Dirt Works with the keys to my house and can expect all the work they do will be of top quality.
