We hired Chris to do the excavation for our new build site. Couldn’t be happier and more satisfied with his professional work. Chris and his team are top notch. They work well together and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We will definitely use Chris again and highly recommend him to anyone needing excavation.

Chris, of Bob Ames is the excavator you want to work with. My family did not have water for over three months due to our water line freezing. We tried a lot of different methods to thaw the line without digging it up. When it came down to digging, we found an amazing company that stepped up when others told us to wait until spring. Chris, of Bob Ames, dug up our water line that was buried with our electrical without harming it. He worked on a a steep hill, cutting through the ground with surgical precision. Chris orchestrated the best approach to dig up the line and now my family has water again! Thank you, Chis! We are so grateful that we found a company like yours to work with! Best excavator ever!

I needed a driveway regraded, a retaining wall reconditioned, and my culvert cleaned and reset. I was fortunate to come across Bob Ames Excavating. I can’t say enough great things about Chris Ames and the company. Because I live out of state, I had to coordinate everything by phone. I had to trust Chris with regard to the work that needed to be done, the supplies needed, and the timeframe it needed to be done in. Chris was extraordinarily good at communicating with me every step of the way, by phone, text, and photos. Although the company was busy, he was able to fit me in to their schedule. Chris was on time, under budget, and honest. The work was top notch. Chris met all my expectations and more!

The service and quality I received are far beyond any amount of stars I can provide. Bob and Chris Ames exceeded all expectations I had for this excavation project. I knew I needed the right person to be able to execute what was required, and Chris answered that perfectly. Keeping within the 17% grade required by the county was one of the main challenges. Halfway into the project, we encountered another obstacle – a slab of pure rock that ran approximately 265 feet through the job. With Chris’ knowledge, experience, and transparency, we were able to accomplish it beautifully.
Not only was the completed project beyond expectations, but his professionalism and communication need mentioning as well. Chris maintained open communication throughout the project, provided updates, and worked tirelessly in order to successfully complete the project. He developed and supplied multiple plans throughout the mountainside and up the slope. We settled on the one way we both thought would be the best route for the driveway.
I would highly recommend Bob Ames Excavating to anyone needing any kind of excavation work. Bob and Chris are honest, knowledgable, reliable, and trustworthy.They will deliver high-quality workmanship and a memorable, stress-free experience.

We worked with Chris to put a dirt driveway on our property. The process was smooth, fast, and easy, and the driveway turned out exactly the way we wanted it. The price was also very reasonable. We have more excavation work coming up, and Ames will be our first call.

Chris was great throughout the entire process. Working through the layout of the driveway several times with me even after I changed things up a bit and he was always willing to meet me on site to do a physical walk through. He constantly kept me up to date with the progress of our project. I would highly recommend Bob Ames Excavating!

Chris was great to work with. The best communication skills I’ve experienced with a contractor! I have a very accessible property now with the access drive he put in. I’d recommend him anytime!

Chris came out and did an amazing job on my new driveway and backyard. We needed a second driveway for recreational vehicles leading into the backyard and the backyard graded for sod. He was extremely quick but took the time to check in and make sure I was happy along the way. He finished the same morning and we are extremely happy with the outcome. I would recommend Chris for any job, big or small. He’s friendly, professional, and he really cares about the project’s end result.

Wonderful, professional and friendly. Arrived on time and worked until job competed, a day later than planned when they hit sandstone. They cleaned up the site and even took away some branches and smoothed out the ruts made by the dump trucks and the other equipment.

We have worked with Bob and Chris for many years doing electrical underground for large commercial projects. Their prices are competitive, service is above and beyond what the competitors offer. The latest project was a 100,000sf single story school. We installed 29,000 feet of conduit underground for power and systems. There were many scheduling issues with other trades and weather that delayed and changed the flow of the job. Chris was always able to work with us to make sure that we were always done with our work ahead of schedule and with the best quality out there. They are extremely knowledgeable, professional and trustworthy. As a plus, they are a joy to work with because of their upbeat and positive nature. I would highly recommend them for your project, no matter what the size. Looking forward to the next project. Thanks guys.

While digging for the installation of the underground secondary, your backhoe operator became suspicious. He had seen some communication locate markings elsewhere on the project but was unable to tell where they went. Excavation was stopped and Base Locate was contacted.
It was discovered that there were two conduits buried mere feet from where the excavation was proceeding with fiber optic communication cables routed in them. The conscientious actions on the part of your field personnel are the only reason a major disater was averted. Thank you.

In reference to Bob Ames Excavating Inc., they are not only dependable, but very safety oriented and on task at all times. They are affordable and very easy to work with.
They have completed many projects with us including underground on Ft. Carson and currently at the Vestas project site in Pueblo where we have installed 40 miles of PVC. All underground inspections and compaction tests were completed and they passed.
Because of their diligence and work ethics, I wouldn’t hesitate to take them to any job in need of excavation no matter how big or small the job may be.

I would recommend Bob Ames Excavating Inc. for any utility installation or general construction projects. I recently worked with them on a sewer line and site prep project for the Town of Estes Park. They installed 1,500 linear feet of sanitary sewer and site prep for a mulit million dollar multi-use building at the fairgrounds.
The project was very challenging due to continuous plan changes and delays by the design engineer as well as unexpected ground water thru a protion of the project. Bob Ames Excavating Inc. was veery professional working through all the unexpected. They were also very fair on negotiations of change orders due to improper design. They did very good work in the field and their administrative staff was very organized and quick to respond to any of my requests.
I have over 24 years of construction management experience; working with Bob Ames Excavating Inc. on this project was very easy as they demonstrated utility and general construction expertise. I highly recommend them.
