Knowledge is definitely power, according to Steven Mezynieski, owner of Southampton Excavation.

When Steven Mezynieski is not running his excavation business, he dedicates a good portion of time educating clients, local companies and homeowners on how to enhance curb appeal and add value to their properties.

Steven Mezynieski believes the only way to truly achieve this level of service is to hire the best excavation contractor for the job. The first thing Steven Mezynieski suggests is to: “Make sure the contractor you hire has an active license to work in New York State.”

Steven Mezynieski also suggests checking a contractor’s certification and permits before signing the dotted line. A reputable contractor will have documentation readily available for clients to review. If the contractor refuses to share licensing details, find a new contractor. Clients may also check a contractor’s licensing status on their own by checking the New York State license verification website.

If the excavation contractor has a crew, they should be insured in the event there is an accident on the property. The contractor should also have a keen awareness of local specifications and procedures.

“Does the contractor have experience that's verifiable?” This is the second important question to ask. A contractor’s level of experience will mean the difference between receiving quality service or subpar service. Steven Mezynieski advises hiring a contractor that specializes in the type of service that needs to be performed. Hiring the wrong excavating contractor can be a very costly mistake.

“Finding affordable rates are important, but it shouldn't be the primary focus when searching for a contractor.”

Steven Mezynieski suggests avoid hiring contractors that offer the cheapest rates because they probably will cut a lot of corners. For example, they could lack the necessary skills to complete an excavating job properly. They may also use poor quality materials or lack the necessary equipment to complete a job within the deadline.

Steven Mezynieski is not only known for having the skills and using top-rated excavation materials, his company is known for utilizing innovative equipment.

The third way to find the best contractor is to focus on quality first and pricing second. Steven Mezynieski advises companies and homeowners to never settle for the first contractor. Review at least 3 to 4 contractors before making a final decision. Steven Mezynieski suggests asking for verifiable references from past clients.
