Grading

STAY AWAY, unless you feel like hiring a dishonest and unprofessional contactor who will dig as deep into your pockets as he feels he can. Completely disgusted. Work in the construction industry and work with many contractors. I have definitely found the most dishonest, contractor in the GTA. Demanding pay for work they never completed. Made an absolute mess of the yard. Hired to Grade the property, never got completed, but asking to be paid.

Henry also stated gravel would be delivered, but rather brought a tri axle of crushed concrete, charged $720....NOTE the actual cost of this material delivered is $310. Also crushed concrete delivered was full of pop cans and plastic bottles. Henry didnt think this was a big deal!

In addition, he was hired to complete the work, rather than staying on the job he had his son working on the yard (very nice kid) but made a mess of the yard. They should have recognized that the ground was to soft that day and should have stopped the work right away. In addition, Henry wants to charge $120/ for his son on the machine (which is what he charges himslef) but his son doesn't nearly have the experience obviously of his father. Than wants to charge TWO hours of float. Broke the sump pump drain in the front yard with the machine. It was a terrible experience.

NOTE****THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE THAT I HAVE EVER TAKEN THE TIME TO WRITE A REVIEW, BUT THOUGHT IT IS WORTH MY TIME IF I CAN SAVE SOMEONE A HEADACHE****

I am sure people have had some good experiences with Henry but we had the complete opposite. Also after reading some google reviews there were multiple people who mentioned that he is dishonest and takes advantage. Should have taken time before hand to do the proper research. Was uneasy about it from the start, when he wouldn't come out to quote. Hence the add ons as he is on the job!

Front Yard Complete Renovation

Wish to thank Henry and Benjamin for an absolutely excellent service and for their professionalism. All aspects of the job were done superbly. With 40 years in the construction industry it was refreshing to deal with honest, professional, dedicated individuals with more than a great deal of common sense and old fashioned work ethic. Would highly recommend this firm to anyone.

Thanks again Henry, all the best in the future.

Project

Henry's son Tony came to install three large granite rocks. He was very polite, skilled with the bobcat, and we worked well together in order to install three very large boulders. A good guy to work with.

Yard excavating

Henry's Bobcat Service was hired to relevel and deal with an eroding end of our yard. They suggested filling the area and making a gentle slope to stop the erosion and also improve the look of our backyard. We are more than pleased with the result, it is far better than our other ideas. The work and supply of fill was done quickly, efficiently and the staff was very pleasant. I have already recommended this company to another neighbour and we called Henry's on a customer recommendation. We plan on calling on them again in the spring of 2018.

I believe you know the value of the work performed and it is always nice when the customer appreciates our expertise. Thank you for calling Henry's Bobcat Service Inc.

Excavating/pile drilling/jack hammering/rubble removal

I love family businesses as we have our own family business , homeowners cannot be in a better situation when they hire a family business that actually cares a lot about the reputation and their workmanship because it is their name.
Communication from the first call to having Anthony start and complete our job as requested couldn't be better , if he was unsure about something or ran into a snag , he wouldn't just do what he thinks he should do , he would actually call one of the 3 lil pigs for guidance first , not like some of these guys that I have dealt with in the last 42 years
They made sure we had our locates done before they started ,
The other guys will just dig before you even given the go ahead and now we have a ruptured gas line !!! Ben there dun that !
- Very honest { family business and reputation }
- keeps to their schedule
Henry's excavating is the best I have seen for a long time and would strongly recommend them.

It was also great working with other professionals who care about their reputation, workmanship and are also knowledgeable and helpful. We hope this can develop into a lasting business relationship which will develop over the next few years as our family business grows to include the new generation of contractors.

Thank you for your review.

excavate backyard, grade and level soil

Henry was very professional, cost effective and sensitive to time restrictions. They worked hard and were diligent and kept me posted at every step of the way to guarantee full satisfaction of the job. I had three other estimates but I trusted Henry. He was honest and fair with the price and that is important to me. I would highly recommend Henry and rest assure that the job will get done with extreme care and perfection.
