    5.0 Jerry N. Ignacio, CO

    Corey and his crew did an outstanding job on our driveway. We have received many compliments from our friends and other contractors on the superb job they did. We would highly recommend them!

    5.0 Jimmy N. Bayfield, CO

    Michelle provided some of the best customer service we've received on home-related needs in this area. Her crewman, Steve, managed a truck like a bobcat when dropping and packing the load he brought for the driveway. We look forward to calling these folks again someday.

    5.0 Rob B. Pagosa Springs, CO

    worked with corey and planet excavation team in my undeveloped lot in pagosa springs and extremely happy with their experience and professionalism. We live a few hours away and corey and planet team truly looked our for our needs in project in our absence.

    5.0 Donald C. Durango, CO

    Great job, pleasant to work with. Would definitely hire again.

    5.0 Chris G. Durango, CO

    Planet has done much work at my property. Site excavation, rock work, grading, etc. Excellent all of the time. I won't use anyone else. Good people.

    5.0 Travis W. Durango, CO

    We hired Corey to help us with our septic system modifications so we could build an ADU on our property. He did a great job with the new septic tank install, but his knowledge and professionalism really helped us with the whole septic modification process. Thanks again Corey.

    5.0 Michelle S. Durango, CO

    Corey and Braun did a great job. Even with just the two of them, they managed to get the fence up in two days with no problems. Corey was direct, honest, professional and still maintained a friendly and approachable demeanor. I would definitely hire them again.

    5.0 Alice G. Pagosa Springs, CO

    Cory is the go to man for any excavation job you might need, we had French drains dug we had a round pen made and he graded for my arena which I love . Planet excavation is the only company I would hire thanks Cory..

    4.5 Alana C. Arboles, CO

    My husband and I hired Corey from Planet Excavation 3 times - first for the garage foundation, then for roads, and the 3rd project was the 4-bedroom-home septic. I was thrilled with the quality of his work, his knowledge, his honesty and the price! His bid was the lowest, but his work was better than I ever expected. My husband is a picky engineer and Corey met his standards with ease and professionalism. I would not call anyone else in the four corners area for anything that Corey is able to do. Also, he had referred us to several other companies to complete other tasks involved in building a home and improving our lot; they were all honest and hardworking (just like Corey). You would be foolish to hire anyone else...just sayin' Alana CL

    5.0 Bill M. Dallas, TX
