) called soon after I left a message for him, came out the next day, and began work on this small project the day after that. The contract allowed up to 2 weeks, but they finished it in 2 days. The contract was straightforward.

, his father, and the other 2 workers were all very pleasant to have around working. I paid for materials and this was an excellent value for the amount of work they did. I wished that I had looked at their internet site and asked them to bid before my kitchen was remodeled.

He's very good. I used him for a project and have been using him ever since. He responds, he's dependable and he's honest. He doesn't try to pull the wool over your eyes and quote you a $30,000 kitchen remodeling job. I can't find anything wrong with him, he's the only one I'll use.

Imagine a contractor who is always on time, and who keeps in touch with you about his work schedule. He never disappears into the ether leaving you wondering when he'll finish the job he started. And he does excellent work, and is creative about solving construction problems.

Wall is punctual, responsible, easy going and helpful, and on top of this, he does a wonderful job. I didn't think there were many people left with his work ethic; and who expects a contractor to accommodate the customer?
I am so grateful to

for the work he did on my property: he came up with an imaginative solution to my storage problems, in addition to retrofitting the very large basement of my soft story 1939 duplex. The inspectors signed off on the retrofit every step of the way, and

had us email him pictures of the subject property and gave us a rough estimate of work necessary to be performed. He followed up with a visit to the property, to be sure that his estimates were correct. With a few minor changes, he provided us with a proposal for a total home remodel which was very well priced, and which we eventually accepted. He provided us with a bond for his work and we set up a schedule of payments with a large down payment (approximately 1/5th of total job) and 4 more increments of 1/5th each. Because we ran into some unexpected issues during construction, we had to do some work change orders for which work would be completed when, but he basically completed everything according to the schedule, with the exception of outside holdups for city inspectors and PGE hook up of new service. (It took PGE 6 weeks to get out to our house and hook up the service!!) Though we asked for a few minor items that were not in our original contract, he incorporated our desires into the job without additional charge. The only time he asked for additional money was when we ran into an unforseen electrical issue which required relocating the electrical service. In fact, PGE took so long to do the final electrical hook up, that we didn't feel it was fair to hold up

Builder's final payment so we paid them in full. When PGE finally got it done,

and his crew came out immediately to do all of the finish up work and attend to the final details, even though they had already received all of their money. We appreciated that immensely!
Because of our inexperience, we didn't obtain a termite report prior to the work being done, so after work was completed, several items were discovered that we had to take care of. It was our opinion that

's crew should have noticed some of that work and notified us. This is the primary reason I have rated him with a B, rather than an A. However, when the termite contractor issued a report for work required with an $11,000 price tag,

and his crew took care of the work for a mere additional $2,000. Also, because we were selling the home, he provided a 30 day warranty to the new buyers for anything they might find issue with.
One other downside was that there were a couple of items that were not completed to my satisfaction by the crew during the job (such as painting prep work), and I had to bring the items to

's attention. He immediately had the items corrected, however, and at the end of the project, he and his crew had done such an amazing and beautiful job that our house sold after only one week on the

What I learned through this project is that you must be very specific as to the details of what you want done. Thank goodness

came out for an estimate and gave me a great bid. I dragged my feet for too long and he was busy by the time I was ready to do the project.
