"Kreativ AV provided a clear, comprehensive and competitive quote.
was creative in designing a system that met our family's preferences" and did so in the most cost effective method available. He installed the system on time, working around our builder's schedule. Everything works great and
is very responsive to any questions we have had. Could not recommend more

"Can't say enough good things about
, the owner. He is professional, dedicated and always available. He came to my house, gave me a" competitive estimate, and i ended up using him to install a wireless security system in my entire house. He did the entire job in one day, the workmanship is good, and the system seems to be working great. As he was installing, and since, we have encountered a few problems related to the hardware (cell phone communications errors/faulty speaker). He is incredibly responsive, and each time he scheduled a time to fix the problem within 24 hours. There was never any charge for coming back out to fix things, and he always was able to get things back in order. You know how, sometimes when you use a big company, you end up having to call a bunch of times to get anything done. Or you end up arguing about why things are broken, or whose fault it is, or when they can schedule a time to come out. And then they give you a 6 hour window and send dome doofus out to fix things, but he can't ever fix them?
is the exact opposite of that. 100% recommendation.

From start to finish the process was smooth and communication was great. I scheduled an estimate appointment, but had to cancel a few days before - they were very accommodating and were happy to reschedule. When the tech arrived to survey the house he immediately got to work and took the time to walk me through all of the options. I liked that he provided info rather than a sales push - on several occasions he pointed out that it might not be necessary to do x and y due to cost/effectiveness which showed me he was being upfront and not overselling. I picked out a system that fit our needs and within a week it was installed and ready to do. The installation process took about 4 hours and the same tech who provided the estimate did the work. After the instal was complete he took the time to walk me through the set up and gave me his cell number should I have any questions. So far the system has worked as advertised and we're very satisfied.

There must have been some confusion, I answered all their questions prior to their tech arriving but he still arrived with a wall mount which was not needed. They were supposed to arrive at 2PM but asked if they could come the day before at 5PM- due to the rain and the tech not knwoing the area- he arrived after 7PM but he did call to say he was going to be later. The

Self installed security system. They talked me through the whole process. They were helpful. It was very fast and easy. It was easy to speak with someone for the process.

They did a great job but the deal was not as it seemed. There was more listed on the deal than he could possibly complete for this amount. Provider said that he would call and have this corrected on the Angie’s List site. He did give me a swivel mount, which I paid for, as I did not want the standard mount. He had to put an outlet behind the TV, which I only had to pay for the outlet and not the labor. He did go over and above. He was very nice and cleaned up when he was finished. I would use this provider again if I needed to.

I have been trying to get a hold of him for 2 weeks. I think he accidently answered my phone call and told me he was busy and said he would call back. And he will not retruned. I have called him just about every day to have him come out and get my system set back up.

I needed to have a forced air furnace fixed. The business is listed on the Nest Thermostat website as being one of the certified technicians in my area, but when I called, the technician was extremely rude, saying to me, "FYI, it's 8:30 on Saturday morning. Good luck!" and abruptly hung up on me.

I called as I wanted my TV hung over my fireplace. There were no existing wires or a TV mount there, so I was hoping this could be done. When

came out, he did just that. Hung our TV over our fireplace, we bought a mount from him, and he did all of the wiring work for the TV. We are very pleased and will use him again in the future. Thank you again
