The best demo contracting company I have dealt with thus far. Called up to get some slab broken up in the basement for plumbing, Bella came the next day to give me a quote with a very competitive price and then came the day after and finished it that day. They were very communicative and prompt and cleaned up and hauled away everything as discussed . Couldn’t be happier with this experience. Almost always with this kind of stuff there are some kind of issues, but with Bella I had absolutely none. Will definitely use them again.

All I can say is wow!! Ben and Chris are timely, professional, and thorough! My shed demolition which required them to smash and remove the shed as well as a concrete pad and dig out about 10 poles that were firmly cemented in the ground (and I was told could not be done by others) is beyond my expectation. EVERY detail was taken care of. Ben met with me initially and reviewed the pros and cons of our options. He carefully walked me through aspects of this job that I had not considered and that other contractors overlooked. Chris and his workers were so polite and left the site and surrounding area immaculate.Without hesitation I would highly recommend Bella contracting!

Read reviews before I hired them and thought they were exagerating about how great they were. Boy was I wrong. I couldn’t agree more with the excellent ratings everyone gave them. They were a class act. Professional, courteous, neat and easy to talk to. The workers worked so well together. My husband and I were beyond pleased at the work that was done. I have already recommended them to a friend. Great work Ben and team! Thank you!

Patricia G.

I cannot say enough good things about Bella Contracting, doing business with them has been a very pleasant experience. Ben and his team were professional, polite, and did a perfect job of dismantling my commercial space. Ben always responded to my inquiries in a timely fashion. The workers were always on time, cleaned up nicely at the end of the project and carted off all the debris using their own trucks, which saved much time and additional cost. The job was completed in the time frame required and I am very happy with the results! I would very highly recommend Ben and his crew for your next project!!

As a first-time homeowner, you want everything cheaper. You can get 30cu. dumpster and hire anyone for 150-200 for a full day to get your demolition job done. But what you can’t get is peace of mind and quick professional workers who can get the job done for you without a headache. Yes, slightly higher price but worth the amount. Ben and his team is the best pick for this need. I called Ben to get an estimate and he came by the same day. Explained how they will do the demo, arrange date and time, and an estimate of course, and that is exactly what happened. His team arrived on time around 9 AM. 2 big guys who decide what to knock down first, and 5 more who move stuff to their own dumpster like the Flash! In 4-5 hours before 2 PM, my garage disappeared from the backyard like magic! I highly recommend Bella Contracting for demolition jobs! Thank you, Ben and team!

Lou ann F.

Ben worked with me through the entire process: the demolition and the city requirements. They were safe, friendly, clean, did the best job for me possible. They were half the price than anybody else, which did concern me, however they were EXCELLENT; they could not have been any better! Inexpensive, great, clean and fast!

Jianglu Z.

Ben and his team are incredibly responsive and high-efficient. They came to our home first for estimation and gave a very reasonable quotes. They complete out removing project within 2 hours and quickly cleaned up all of the debris on site. I would definitely recommend them to my friends.

Sandra D.

Ben was very professional and punctual. The two workers were as well. They demolished two outdoor sheds and removed wood fences. They cleaned up the area afterward. I would definitely recommend this company.

Joseph M.

I am thankful for Bella Contracting Services. They did a great job. They were on-time, fast, and efficient. They did work in one day, that would have took me a week. Time is money in my line of work. Bella Contracting Service saved me time and money with the great price they gave me. They haul away the debris and clean and vacuum everything. Bella Contracting Service is well worth it. I will definitely hire them again.

Jeffrey F.

I hired Ben and his team to perform full demolition on the interior of a historic home bringing it back to the studs in preparation for a full restoration. His team took care where care was needed and worked diligently to get the job done. The fact that Ben had his own trucks for carting really made the difference given the site conditions. I would definitely hire them again.

Myron C.

I hired the team to perform full demolition on the stand alone car garage in my backyard. The team took care where care was needed and worked diligently to get the job done. They were able to knock down the garage and remove the debris in a minimum amount of time and at far less of an expense if the city got involved. I would definitely hire them again. Already in talks for our next project.

Larry M.

Worker’s arrived on time. Demolished the shed and cleaned up effectively.

Marcos F.

The guys got to my house a little bit late, but it was Father s Day on Sunday and they demolish my Drummes studio. they took care of it, great guys ,hard workers. Did what they re supposed to do.

Jay G.

Crew was on time and focused and did a great job! It was an organized demolition of a backyard shed. They were professional and cleaned up. Would use them again and reccommend.

Maria P.

Ben and his crew did demo work on our home. Ben was very thoughtful and catered to all our needs. They completed the work very quickly and efficiently, making sure we like the way they did everything. Everyone was very friendly and it was a pleasure to do business with them. They left the area clean.

Scott L.

Very easy to communicate with the owner Ben. They were able to start the project when I needed and complete just as fast. Had a dumpster truck so no need to have a dumpster delivered on a driveway.

John C.

Couldn’t be happier with the results. They have a great team of experienced guys and take care of you. I highly recommend them!! I needed to get rid of an old shed and a rusted basketball pole. From the initial inspection to the day of the job, Bella Contracting was timely, polite and really good at their jobs. The team came in with their own trucks and tools, which allowed for them to give me a fair price on handling two demolitions. It took them less than two hours! I appreciated that they were willing to listen to my needs and how they even gave some tips on house-maintenance coming from their decades of experience. Thanks guys!!

Tatyana B.

I hired Bella Contracting to demolish garage and to build the garden shed. The company team did a perfect, high quality work. Friendly price and very well organized , they produced an excellent result. Best, T. Belinskaya

Anthony B.

Ben showed up on time for the estimate when promised. He was complete and thorough with pricing and completing the project. His team lead by TJ were very pleasant to work with, they were very detailed with there work. One project lead to 3 others projects which Ben and his team made time for. I will be using Ben and his team again in future projects. Anthony B

Jessica B.

The were on time and friendly. They worked well and left demolition area clean.

Yolanda R.

Bella contracting came to my rescue when my garage was about to collapse. Ben (owner) was very professional and worked really quickly in submitting paperwork to my town to get a permit. The electrician who came was polite friendly and very knowledgeable. The demo team — HANDS DOWN TO THEM! You guys are the absolute BEST! They demolished my garage BY HAND (No machines as it was too close to my neighbors garage)!!! The team that came to collect the trash- you did great picking up all those pieces of wood and nails. The best part is he doesn’t collect ANY payment until the job is completed. This shows you that they pride themselves on a job well done. Thank you Ben, you and your team are fantastic! I’d recommend Bella with my eyes closed!

Rich Parker

I hired Bella for a large job, cleaning up a warehouse property after 20 years of Neglect. They did an excellent job. They were very responsive, did a great job and were a pleasure to work with. I was amazed at how their machine demolished and shredded two old 40′ loaded trailers and put them in dumpsters.

Kevin Yacker

Ben was able to schedule a last minute demolition job, and had his guys over within a day. Excellent work all around, nothing damaged and the crew led by Joe was top notch. Would use again.

Jaci Rochedieu

We called to get a concrete slab broken up to make room for a pool installation in our backyard. Of course, we had left it to the last minute, and Bella was able to come out the next day and get this huge slab broken down- including the surprising 2 foot thick footer around the perimeter. We WILL be calling again. Super helpful, very friendly and got the job done!

Anthony D.

Excellent work. Quick and efficienct, workers communicated every step of the way.

Josh C.

Fast efficient and quick to the scene on weekend to assess property destruction, secure the area and got a crew onsite immediately to prevent further destruction to my home. Did what he said he would do. Way to go Ben! Thank you. Ben was very responsive to my needs when our garage was crushed and threatened our house. He and his team were on site very quickly. He answered all my calls and described what he would do to mitigate further damage to my property. He really works through a job! thanks, Ben.

Megan K.

Start to finish, my experience with Bella Contracting exceeded my expectations. Ben and every member of his team were professional and polite, responsive and able to meet my timeframe and reasonably priced. The work was completed and cleaned up nicely at the end of the project and carted off all the debris using their own trucks, including a separate trip back the next day for some additional materials that didn’t fit, which saved much time and additional cost to me. I am very happy with the results! I would not hesitate to use Bella Contracting again or recommend them to anyone in the future!

Ki L.

I met Ben at the house and walked down the demolition job to bring down a 3000 sq ft residential home. He promptly gave me a quote with a good price and after receiving the demo permit, he went to work with his guys to bring down the house and remove the debris. Barry, his heavy equipment operator is super friendly and nice. They even started the job New Year’s eve as requested so I can get my house off the tax roll. He kept me informed on what was going on and due to a massive snow storm, the job slowed down but once the snow melted, he finished up and even returned to clean up the job site as requested. Easy to work with and good communication via text and phone. He was also very flexible with the payment. Good to work with and would use again.

Residential excavation

You’re thinking about expanding your property. But if you’re interested in adding a pool, garage, or addition to your home, you need to lay the groundwork first. We offer residential excavating services that prepare the land for new construction projects.

Foundation excavation

Foundation excavation

When constructing a new building, we spend a lot of time thinking about the materials, floor plans, and dimensions of it. But what about the ground it’s built upon? The earth must be properly compacted to prevent structural instabilities.

A stable building relies on a stable foundation. For new residential developments, our excavation services are practically a necessity. We’ll ensure that your property is primed and prepared for construction.

Our foundation excavation services are designed to create a level, stable, and firm base for your construction.

Underground utilities

Utility lines are essential for any residential property. When these systems are damaged, it interrupts your ability to live comfortably and safely within your home.

Damaged water lines can lead to dangerous septic issues—exposure to contaminated water can make people sick. However, repairing these lines pose challenges of their own. Since they’re underground, one needs to know precisely where to dig to access them. It’s also important to avoid damaging other utilities, such as gas or electrical lines.

We’ll map out your entire property before we start digging. This ensures that we only excavate in areas that will not damage other utilities. Our excavation services allow you to safely repair or install underground water, gas, and electrical lines.

Underground utilities

Land grading

You’re happy with the exterior of your home, but not with the land that surrounds it. In your yard, all you see are boulders, tree stumps, and bushes. You’re ready for a fresh start. 

Our grading services allow you to shape the landscape to fit your vision. You can have the backyard that you’ve always dreamed of, with space for a deck, pool, and/or garden.

Dealing with water drainage issues? Standing water is unsightly—not to mention, it also allows insects to multiply rapidly. Our land grading services are just what you need. We’ll dig trenches that redirect water flow away from the foundation of your home. This will prevent water damage and flooding after an extreme weather event.

…and more!

Our excavation services can assist you with installing a wide variety of systems, such as:

  • Sidewalks
  • Swimming pools
  • Septic tanks
  • Dry wells

From obtaining permits to project management, we’ll be there to help you along each step of the way. 

Commercial Excavation Services

With each passing year, your goal is to grow your company. But what happens when your building runs out of space? You want to hire more staff, expand your storeroom, and increase your storage capabilities, but you’re limited by the dimensions of the property. Excavating the land allows you to expand your building to accommodate your growing business. 

First impressions are important, especially when it comes to your business. Our grading services can transform the landscape that surrounds your commercial property. By revamping the exterior of your business, you can increase its curb appeal and attract new customers. 

We aim to disrupt your commercial operations as little as possible. Our excavating contractors make every effort to complete projects on time or ahead of schedule.

At a commercial facility, you might be working with hazardous chemicals or other contaminating materials. What can you do if those substances leak into the environment nearby? Left untreated, toxic chemicals can lead to illness, soil erosion and foundation damage. We offer hazardous material removal and disposal to make your property safe and contaminant-free. 

Jobs of this scale require extensive experience to pull off. At Bella Contracting, our team has what it takes.


We can handle any job

Are you concerned that your excavation project is too complex or large for most contractors? That’s not a problem for us. At Bella Contracting, we use an array of equipment to get the job done, including hydraulic hammers, grapple buckets, and skid steers. Our excavation machines have the capacity for:






And 80,000 lbs
