"We were able to get a hold of
with no issues for quotes and to sign the contract and make our initial deposit and then never saw him again." Our contract stated he would submit the permit within 15 days which took months and then when the county required engineering drawings, nothing was ever resubmitted. It has been over six months of very little communication and no permit or any pilings/building for our dock. I can not emphasize enough to NOT use this contractor and to look elsewhere. He is not licensed and there is a good
you will never actually get your dock built which is a shame.

"I guess
is doing well...too busy to return phone calls from serious buyers. I was looking for a quote for a double jet ski lift and contacted"
. They rebuilt my dock 4 years ago so as a returning customer I would have thought they would be responsive. I spoke to someone in their office and they took my phone number. No one ever called me back. In fact, out of 5 dock/lift building companies, only 2 called me back. The work was done by another company.

Dock Building reviews in San Diego


From our first contact,
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
were professional and friendly. They responded immediately to our request for a quote and set up a time to meet us.
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out and discussed different options with us on how to site the lift on our dock since we already have a boat lift. He explained the advantages of changing to a 4 pole system. We purchased a 10,000 pound boat lift that is set up to hold two jetskis. If in the future, if we decide we want to use it as a boat lift instead, it will be an easy conversion.
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
quote was about $750 less than the only other quote we received...and his quote was for a higher rated lift (Pateco 10,000 lbs.). We contacted 5 companies for quotes and only 2 responded. The work was completed in less than 2 days.
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
also went over and above expectations when he greased our existing boat lift because it was making noise. We are very happy to have completed this project with no hassle, at a decent price, and a better product than what we had anticipated.

gets two thumbs up from us!
- Debbie B.

They were very unresponsive and non-committal regarding start and completion date. (gave them the ok and deposit 4 months prior to completion date) In retrospect the price i paid was on the high side. On the positive side, the work performed, as supervised by
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
, was excellent!
- Ralph D.

I specifically asked the sales person
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
whether their company did the work themselves because I didn't want it subbed out. Installer showed up and told me he'd worked for Superior Doors for 15 years. This was a lie.
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
later told me that yes ...the installer was a sub and no they hadn't mentioned this to me even though I had specifically requested that no sub-contractor be used on my job. The installer did a very sloppy job of installing the doors. You could see daylight under both doors when shut which kind of defeats the purpose of purchasing doors with R-17. He made a mess of my siding and caulk and did not re-caulk when he was done. When I later asked
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
about this he told me they weren't allowed to re-caulk when they removed your existing caulk......because why???? The installer unplugged my water pump (needs a ladder to plug and unplug) and gave me attitude when I asked him to plug it back in because he had to get his ladder out of the truck. He dinged up my siding and chipped paint off of it during the install. He left a huge mess in the driveway including lots of staples and nails to drive over even though I asked him to clean up his mess and he said he would. He deprogrammed both garage door openers and didn't bother to reprogram them so that I couldn't use my remotes. After he left and I discovered neither of the remotes worked I called Superior and was told that I'd need to wait 5 days for someone to come out to reprogram them. Are you kidding me! I hope the doors hold up without problems. I had to wait an additional two weeks for someone from Superior to come out to adjust the doors so that they closed all the way. I have zero confidence in this company.

- carol F.

Easy to work with and great communication throughout process.
Best bid of 3 quotes. Timely response to all requests.
I asked to have the lift installed ASAP and was shocked how quickly the permits, installation and boat setup were completed. All done in just a few weeks. Pilings were placed perfectly just an inch away from the from the dock for easy boat access.
If you need a boat lift AMC is the place to go!


After having had one of the shortest piers on the lake for several years, we wanted something that would make launching a boat a little easier. After contacting
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
, it turned out they had installed the original pier for the prior owner and would be able to match the construction of the pier very closely. We were given an estimated time frame, and despite a very wet rainy stretch of weather, the extensions were completed and installed right on time. They match beautifully, and we finally have a pier that's big enough to have a few people sit on - launching the boat is much easier! They were friendly and profession, and very easy to deal with.

First, let it be said that if speed of completion is a major consideration, then
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
may not be the best choice for you. Our project took much longer than anticipated and virtually every deadline was missed, some by a considerable margin. While
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
has some of the best equipment on Lake Winnipesaukee in terms of excavating, pile driving, and
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
capabilities, he has a very small crew and is challenged to balance all the jobs he has contracted, making it difficult for him to keep everything on time. However, if quality of construction and a far superior finished product delivered at a competitive price is your goal, then
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
may be your guy. We were quite content to give him the time he needed as long as the job was done right, and it was. Our old permanent dock was wiped out in the spring of 2014 when the ice went out. We contacted several dock construction companies, including two of the larger ones.
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
San Diego Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the only one who actually sat down with us, showed samples of his work, discussed various options, and had a reasonable plan for negotiating a permit approval that included some needed minor configuration changes to protect from further ice damage, while quoting a competitive price. With the exception of the aforementioned scheduling issues, he was true to his word and delivered everything that he promised. He took charge of the permitting process, he removed the old dock, and built the new one to the agreed specifications. His workmanship was excellent. The post-job cleanup was complete. The dock that he built is a thing of beauty and we are absolutely delighted with it. We feel we got excellent value for our investment. We feel very comfortable recommending

He was just terrible. He lied, he cheated. He didn't stand by what was written in the contract. He used some used materials. And he didn't honor the warrenty.
- Gary & Martha H.

After the initial site visit we were told we would have an estimate within a few days. Have not heard a word back in about six weeks. With no follow up how do you stay in business?
