We were needing some gravel to fill our new window wells. We checked the prices at Home Depot, and were fairly blown away. We decided to check Portland Sand & Gravel after having a good experience over the phone about finding a dumpster company to leave a drop box for the soil and concrete we dug up for the wells.
It was a little daunting to go there with all of the big dump trucks and large excavating trucks moving around in the lot, but we remembered the kind voice on the phone. Once inside their little office building, we were impressed by their suggestions and what seemed like unbelievable prices compared to HD. We were never made to feel like an inconvenience, even though we were definitely small potatoes when you see how busy they are with large trucks.
I will definitely come back to this family owned business for any gravel or dirt needs.
Pros: Very friendly, and tons cheaper than Home Depot.
