Evolution Installs was super responsive in email communication leading up to the day of installation.
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
, owner of the business, asked good questions to make sure he understood the project before coming on site. On installation day their team of 3 were professional, taking off their shoes, moving furniture, and covering floors. The installation itself was well done. They painted the areas of the wall they had to punch through (we supplied the paint). One challenge that came up was the install of a ceiling fan. We bought the wrong length downrod but

figured out a solution to get the fan installed.

also made sure to keep us informed during the day as the project moved along. Overall we are very happy and highly recommend Evolution Installs.

I called

for a consulation. I had wired outlets in the walls and speakers around my pool deck and in my kitchen ceiling, but I was not sure if they were integrated into these wall outlets or how to best use the system.

came out, did some testing and gave recommendations. I went with his suggestion to install a Sonos system as I wanted to have multiple zones that I could control with my phone.

ordered the equipment and came out and installed the equipment working around my busy schedule. The system is fantastic and works better than I could have imagined.

was extremely professional and easy to work with. He was always on time, efficient and very accommodating to work with my schedule. He also installed an interent service through my entire home. I needed two access points so that I could run off of one network. It covers my entire house with strong signals. I would definitely recommend

failed to deliver any & all products, services and programming for a complete Home Theater Installation and they billed me a 50% deposit. we've since incurred additional huge expenses in the preparation of our home for their custom-altered home theater installation, tailored exclusively to their requests and specifications – and we will now have to alter once again. We have since filed formal complaints with the local BBB, Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation and with

After numerous phone calls and messages during nearly 30 days of sales pitches, on May 20, 2014, I accepted the proposal from
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
, in Boca Raton, FL, for the purchase of the hardware, the programming services and complete setup of the home theater in our entire house encompassing 6 rooms. The company owner,
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
(semi-retired) introduced me to his son-in-law, JP
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
(managing the business), among other technicians and “engineers” when I was reassured by
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
and his team to receive the utmost professional service, diligent follow-up and an immaculate experience with
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
. I then agreed to the $9,000 50% deposit.

I supplied
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
with a written detailed account of all equipment inventory and work that was expected to be performed with drawings and equipment list, which was not reviewed nor used by their technicians.

Our home was undergoing a large remodeling project and throughout the remodeling phases, I frequently updated
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
technicians in writing of the progress to ensure perfect synchronism with their installation of our Home Theater. Our experience with this company has been destitute – as I made clear in writing several times to its owner, with many mistakes – most of which I averted since at this point, I no longer trusted
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
to work in my home without supervision. Mistakes made were such that the project manager
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
informed me that the person most responsible for this chaotic service was fired due to his lack of performance.
1. On the morning Aug-20-2014, 9:30 AM, I was informed by owner
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
by telephone that
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
would no longer be performing any services in my home; they would not install the home theater nor deliver any of the products listed on their proposal;

2. I was also informed that
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
would review and offer me a small partial credit of my $9,000 deposit;

3. Furthermore, it was made clear to me that the contract was being unilaterally canceled because “I was one of the most difficult customers they’ve every worked with and I was disrespectful to the staff and employees” – which, as at least a half dozen contractors can attest to, never, ever happened;

4. Based on their instructions and installation guidelines, I invested thousands of dollars on electricians, painting, finishing and materials specifically for the installation of the home theater locations, which were all outlined and marked on location by
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
;

5. Throughout these months, my contractors made countless repairs from the sloppy, shameful work performed by
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
with over 80 holes that had to be patched, mended and refinished – this is in spite of my constant requests to properly protect the work areas, surface and furniture when they are working;

6.
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
did not deliver any part or portions of our complete home theater installation project;

7. Their employees are amateurs and ignorant of the project scope to be performed maintain arrogant postures when called upon to clean up after themselves or repair problems they caused; They have no idea what they are doing, no proper instructions on what to perform when they are on site with owner's who are unresponsive and simply don't care;

8. Numerous mistakes were made – many of which I was able to correct prior to escalation;

9.
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
canceled the project leaving thousands of dollars of the home theater remodel now useless;

10. Once our $9,000 deposit was received I never again received any phone calls or follow-up from either the owner (except to ask for more money and increase the project cost) and trial text messages clearly demonstrates my claims.
11. My calls placed were not returned and messages not replied by owner's

or JP

I had been going back with
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
for a number of weeks during the proposal process (including an onsite visit), and once we had agreed upon the work, I unfortunately had to put the project on hold for a bit until we were ready to move forward.
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
honored his price when we finally started the work.
He showed up on time on the day of install, and got right to work. He asked me questions as needed throughout the day, and didn't mind that I was asking him a lot of questions as he was setting things up. We ran into a few "snags" (due to the layout of my house) but
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
was able to quickly figure out a workaround. I was extremely happy with the final product and I would definitely use him again in the future (I already have a second project I am thinking about).
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
is also very knowledgeable about various A/V and Home theater equipment, and he was willing to answer the numerous questions about what I should buy. When I wanted to use some of my existing equipment as a part of the install, he was not pushy about me upgrading everything, but he did explain to me the various pros and cons of going down various paths.
I didn't mention price yet, but I can tell you that he is extremely competitive on that front. I think you would be hard pressed to find a better deal with someone that is actually very knowledgeable and does good work.

I am extreamly happy with my new system and the way the installation went down.
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
's crew called me when they were on thier way to my house and arrived on time, wore shoe covers and kept work area cover and clean. They were very careful and detail oriented. They explained in advance any and all issues that may come up during the installation. They explained how to properly use our sound system. My wife and kids love, love, love our system. Thanks
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
and keep up the awesome work!

From a technical stand point, they were very good. They cleaned up and the install looks beautiful -- no wires or chords showing. Unfortunately, my $99 Angie's List special ended up costing me $1,100. I told them when they first got here that I would like the 3 TVs mounted, but wasn't sure how much my $99 special would get me (I knew it wasn't going to cover all 3 but maybe 1 of them). They ended up doing all 3 and spent almost 5 hours. My inner voice told me to stop them after a couple of hours to ask how much this was going to cost (always listen to that inner voice), but I didn't - so I take partial responsibility for that, but assumed maybe another $300-$400. After it was all done,
Shinglehouse Home Theater Installers Provider Name Locked
showed me an invoice for $1,030. I was SHOCKED and completely taken off guard. They had already completed the work what could I do. I told him that was a lot more than I expected. He said he does good work and he does a lot of work for high-end clients (because evidently that is supposed to impress me and compared his high-end technical work to that of a plumber who charges more). I had no choice but to pay. Needless to say, I felt sick about it and being taken advantage of and spending so much money. The next day I called and left a message stating that he should have disclosed how much this was going to cost before hand or at some point during the install. I also stated that I probably should have asked and accept responsibility for that. He returned my call a couple of days later. He said he understood but could only offer to come back out for another job that he would be willing to do at a "fair and reasonable" price. No thanks!

was a joy to work with...
They bid quickly, installed quickly and continue to service the install to tweak things to our liking. I would use them again and would recommend fully to all with A/V or Automated Home needs.

was great to deal with. He arrived on time, did the installation, patiently went through RCN's activation process. He is knowledgeable about all things related to TV's, wireless networks, and much more. He explained everything in detail. He even provided a cable at no charge, because he found the original cable to be problematic. I would not hesitate to recommend Evolution Installs to anyone.

Ed showed up on time and gave me a quote for the installation. He was polite and very helpful and made sure my system worked properly before he left. He returned a second time to adjust the speakers and did not charge me for his time. I highly recommend him to everyone. He was a pleasure to work with.
