Questions & Answers
Can Sergeant & Sons Septic and Excavating give me a guaranteed bid or estimate over the phone?
No. Unfortunately we are not able to do that. Each job is "unique". There are different variables that can come into play when planning a septic and or excavating project. We will come out to your home or site and perform a "at no cost" evaluation. We will then formulate a guaranteed bid and submit that to you for review.
What is a guaranteed bid and why do I need one?
At sergeant & Sons Septic and Excavating we believe it is very important to be upfront and honest with our customers. We do not want there to be any surprises once the job is complete. This is why we provide a guaranteed bid. This guarantee means that everything stated on the bid will be done, done right and that you will know how much it will cost to you without any hidden or added fees. That is why we sign this bid and we ask that you sign it as well.

My septic was installed but there is a pile of dirt in my yard and it has not been covered up, how long will it be like this?
We know that this can be frustrating. We sympathize with you for this inconvience. Unfortunately, this is all dependent on the weather. When a septic system is installed, due to the type of soil that we have here in Northeast OH, we must allow for the system to "settle". We cannot cover the freshly dug hole until it has settled and dried out a bit. We do promise that we will not forget about you, once the weather allows, we will be over to finish the job.
