  • Provider name locked. rocks. I have to say I have used architects in the past, but the price and quality of his work is superb compared to anyone have ever used. Full set of as-built drawings; full set of new design drawings; clearing the paperwork through the city of LA (which would have been a nightmare for me). He very professionally dealt with issues we had - including prior owner's illegal build (which we are going to have replaced).
    Very impressed with his demeanor - no drama, no issues that can't be dealt with. Highly recommend him!

  • Provider name locked. is courteous, professional, and responsive.  I needed an architect quickly, someone who would have no problem working directly with my contractor, who was already in place.  Provider name locked. was able to meet right away and turn around his architectural drawings in a reasonable amount of time.  I recommend Provider name locked. -- as long as you take care to have him work with a structural engineer who is readily accessible and can visit your job site.  I liked working with Provider name locked. , and would've given him an A+ rating if I was just evaluating him.  However, since hiring an architect generally means working with whomever he/she uses as their structural engineer when you need structural calculations, I was extremely displeased with the process with his go-to structural engineer.  The structural engineer turned out to be someone based in San Provider name locked. -- I didn't know this up front.  I only found out once I started complaining about the delays, when over a month had gone by and I still didn't have what was needed for permit submission.  It made no sense since my job site was in LA.  Had it been someone based in LA who could visit our property to see the existing structure and fully understand the changes we wanted to make to it, it would've been very different.  I had to tell Provider name locked. that I wanted to use someone else, and found another engineer.  That other structural engineer finished his work within a few days, and I had my building permits in no time.  The whole experience with Provider name locked. 's structural engineer was very upsetting.  Provider name locked. did what he could from his end to make things right, which I appreciated, and is why I can still recommend him -- but again, only with the caveat that you not use the structural engineer (Provider name locked. ) he'd put on my job.
  • When a general contractor says this (and I quote this literally from his mouth) "YOU HAVE TO SPECIFY IN THE SCOPE OF WORK THAT YOU WANTED STRAIGHT WALLS", you should either run away, fire him, Provider name locked. in the brains for being an freaking  idiot, or just take away his contractor's license all together and tell him to go back to his clown school!
    What kind of dumb idiot would say such a thing. Oh that's right, our contractor, Provider name locked. . I asked my fellow colleagues who are real architects and interior designers, and they said that is the most ridiculous thing they have ever heard. Okay good, I'm not the crazy one. Do I really have to specify I wanted straight walls? It goes WITHOUT SAY  that every built or renovated wall should be straight! COMMON SENSE Provider name locked. !!
    What's even worse is he proceed to argue with us about it. As if we were crazyfor wanting all our walls straight. Are we in the twilight zone or what?! Are these the words of a licensed contractor? Scary, very scary. He should get his licensed revoked. His subcontractor, Provider name locked. doesn't even have a license!! Provider name locked. claimed Provider name locked. is an employee of Fidelity, but turns out, he's just an unlicensed sub (did a background check). So this whole time, this unlicensed sloppy contractor has been working on our house. If I had know that, I would've hired some idiot off the parking lot of Home Depot!! FAIL!!!
    At this point, we are obviously appalled and just dumbfounded. Provider name locked. is the president and owns this company!! Frightening!! Not to mention, a procrastinating, lazy liar as well. Not only did the project run about 4 weeks over completion date, he never disclosed that there would be significant height/level difference in our bathroom and kitchen transition points. Really? He just responded to us as if there was nothing he could do and basically proceeded without any other alternative. And now, we have ugly level changes in our kitchen and bathroom. Thanks for the heads up!!
    The contract was signed on August 21st, 2014. The crew didn't start working at the house until August 29th, and I know because I was at the job site every other day, sometimes even every day. That's 8 days after we signed the contract! Provider name locked. also said, from the beginning, that because we were not living in the house at the time of renovation, his crew would be able to freely work on both areas at the same time, thus getting work done quicker. He said 6 weeks or mid-October they should be done. There were number of days when I went to the house and nothing was done. They didn't even show up! Infuriating! Wasting my d*** time! Mid-October rolls around. Not even close to done. Not only were delayed, they didn't even apologize for delaying our move. We were supposed to move in November when did they actually complete the project (the word "complete" is questionable). NOVEMBER 11th!!! A mere 3-4 weeks more than what was scheduled. Not a couple days, not a week, 3 weeks delayed!!  We paid close to $50,000 to get the quality and craftsmanship of a group of guys from Home Depot!
    - Nickel and dimed us for the stupidest little change orders
    - THREE weeks late finishing
    - Basically had to hold the foreman's hand as he always did things without asking us
    - Provider name locked. NEVER came to job site except to collect money
    - Provider name locked. NEVER once came to check on job unless there was problem
    - We had to ask several times to remove trash from our yard
    - Never sent us a schedule or gave us a timeline when we needed things, everything was always, I need this tomorrow!
    - Has absolutely NO clue how to restore old Craftsman homes
    - Has absolutely NO sense of what "craft" is, shoddy workmanship all together
    - Subs ALL his contractors
    - Didn't finish a lot of things in the house or left them broken/unfixed, lots of loose ends (and now we're stuck with it!!!)
