What our customers say about Barr Excavating


I've used Mike Barr and Barr Excavating on several projects for my home, rental properties, and road association in Pollock Pines. Mike is a great professional who takes pride in his work.  You can be sure that when the job is done, Mike will leave your property in good condition and ready for your project to move tot he next stage.  He chooses just the right equipment for each job, matching it to the configuration of your land and taking into consideration access to the project site. He brought in just the right size tractor on my property so that the trees and surrounding areas were not impacted.  I recommend Mike to everyone.

I have worked with Mike for two years as he has provided snow removal services for our Homeowners Association.  He is very professional, has strong written and verbal communication skills and is a man of his word.  His RFP response was very complete and cost competitive and he understands the importance of providing top customer support.  The past two winters have proved to be challenging from a snow removal perspective and he has never failed to get the job done.  He is very reliably, takes pride in his work and has very good follow-up.  Lastly, I find Mike to be very responsive and easy to communicate with as he is equally comfortable communicating face-to-face, or via phone calls, email and/or texts.

"I've known Mike Barr for many years as a top notch grading and underground utility contractor.  So when my septic system failed and I needed some backhoe work done, naturally I called Mike.  What I got from him though was much more than a friend with a backhoe.  He treated me like a client,  providing the knowledge and experience needed to understand my problem and engineer a solution, advise on how to work within the local regulations, the best tools and materials to get the job done right, and the hard work to get it done quickly.  Mike was very professional yet friendly; and his costs were clearly quoted and very reasonable.  Just like always, Mike went the extra mile to make sure I was completely happy with his work.  I was very impressed, and highly recommend Barr Excavating for your project." -Keith


I recently completed a project for a client to build a garage and storage area, large enough for a Motor Coach, tractor and some solar panels.There was a fairly large cut into the side of the hill. So I called Barr Excavating to come and take a look. I called Mike Barr because he always calls you back, shows up on time and gives you some honest “feedback”.  His prices are reasonable and he gets the job done Right Now! The finished pad grade was cut to within ¼ of an inch of proposed level pad grade and the footings were clean. Barr Excavating does some real clean work. Thanks Mike - See you on the next job – Richard Engstrom, R.C.E. Construction
