Recent Review: It went incredibly well. Ignacio spent a lot of time with us working on the design and budget. While this company is not the cheapest on the market, in this case you truly get what you paid for. Ignacio's design took our breath away. The texture and color of the stamped concrete is beautiful. The extra patio space transformed an ugly weird patio to a masterpiece. The flagstone topped retaining walls easily provides seating for more people than we know. The color coordination between the concrete, the flagstone, and the stucco faced retaining walls is very pleasing to the eye. Unique' s crew is one of the best that I have had the pleasure to have working for me. I have never seen a harder working crew. The truly gave us a full 9 hours of back breaking work. The job superb Roberto was fantastic, easy to work with and to communicate. Ignacio made it a point to stop by every day. As with all construction there are issues, broken water lines, sprinkler lines, irrigation control cables. Roberto took immediate care of any and all such issues. He did a great job in keeping my stress levels low. This may be the best hardscape company in the Bay Area. The attention to detail is exceptional. Ignacio has a designer's eye. We love the result, and have spent more time outside in the last month than in the three previous years.. Hire this crew. You will not be disappointed. Bryan Grady 408-309-5363

Recent Review: Excellent! I am so glad that we decided to go with Austin at Upright Engineering. Austin was a pleasure to work with. He seemed genuinely excited about our project. He found workarounds to achieve structural changes that others told us would be impossible. We took down several walls in our home, raised the ceiling and added large sliding doors and windows. He was knowledgeable about city requirements, responsive and very quick. He has since followed up to make sure the project is going smoothly and has worked with the contractor to address any questions he has had. We are so thankful to have found Austin- we highly recommend him!

Recent Review: It was remarkably painless. Their bid (for the painting, before we knew how much carpentry would be needed) was much lower than two other bids I had gotten, but their documentation was excellent, their references checked out, the reviews on Angie's List were positive, and they responded quickly and fully to my email questions, so I decided to give them the job. They were able to go to work on our project right away. Once they got the walls open, the carpenter was able to very rapidly put together a quote for the carpentry work. The bids ($3600 for the painting, $3250 for the dry rot repair and carpentry) were exactly what we wound up paying. The work went very quickly, and was completed while I was out of town for the weekend. I returned to a dazzlingly bright house. The handling of the trim around the doors and windows was immaculate, and the siding patches were matched to the original darn near perfectly. And, as I mentioned, they took care of the wooden fence around my front yard without asking, and even painted the retaining wall (which needed it, but which I had neglected to ask about) at no extra charge. I confess that, had I been there to view the work before they finished, I probably would have negotiated to have them put on an additional coat, just for added longevity, but the coverage (primer+one coat gloss latex from Sherman-Williams) was quite complete and I am confident it will look good for quite a while. And as proof that they stand behind their work, they came back on the Saturday after I returned (i.e. after I had paid them in full) to finish up painting the edges of a door (which they could not have opened while I was out of town). The workers were always prompt, polite and professional, and the entire job stress free.

Recent Review: First, there are not enough superlatives to bestow on Atlas Pavers as a company, its employees, owners or the quality of their work. With that said, let me share some examples of their outstanding professionalism, skills, commitment to their customers and deep understanding of a project’s need. After being informed in August of 2016 that my 1930s home needed drainage to preserve its foundation, months of research began. Not only did I have to find and decide on which company was proficient in drainage, I also had to decide on replacing the aged and broken concrete with more concrete or pavers. Learning that pavers would be better long-term—since it’s known the Bay Area has earthquakes (small tremors to large quakes)—I chose pavers. Next came deciding which company could do the work in my area, keeping in mind that the primary focus was on drainage and appearances secondary; thus, leaving only two companies on my list. Knowing the project was large: grading, two retaining walls, steps, a walkway and driveway…I believed the smaller of the two to be less knowledgeable and unprepared to handle the job, so, I chose Atlas. Jeanne, Atlas’ Design Consultant, was not only pleasant to work with, but understood the goal of the project was drainage; giving me total confidence in my decision to go with Atlas. Within a week, Jeanne returned with a specialist, Radek. Radek not only saw the problem right away and began planning on how to correct the issue of standing water against my foundation and under my house, he explained everything to me in a through and professional manner—never once talking down to me, in that “little-woman” voice so many contractors use. Together, the three of us developed a plan and design for the project that fit my budget—something that is rare when working with contractors! Work began in late November and finished just before the rain began in early December—a total of three weeks. Junior, the Chief Operating Officer, was on-site every workday morning. The crew was efficient and friendly—they carried my groceries in for me since I had to keep my car on the street. They also fitted the five down spouts into drains, and several hidden French drains behind the retaining walls carry water to the main system, along with a drain in front of a basement door and end of the driveway. When they encountered an unexpected plumbing problem, they informed me and called a plumber immediately. When I discovered leaking faucets, there was no problem, other than rainy days, for the same plumber to return and fix the aged faucets. After all the rains this winter, there has been NO standing water against nor under my house, no sagging of the driveway, and the design is subtle but consistent with the era of the house. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the quality of the work from the Atlas team…I only wish they gave lessons to other contractors.

Recent Review: Mark came out and estimated the job and showed up on time to do the work.  He gave us a heads up that the job might run into two days of work.  Because the retaining wall was part of a terraced garden, he had to sit on a short garden bed to access the wall and do his work in a very confined space . He took down thre broken stones, chipped off the old adhesive, sanded the wall to reapply the concrete mixture.  He then re-built, rock by rock, the compelte wall.  It took two days but he did a tremdnous job.  If you need ANY masonry work I would highly recommedn Mark Young!!  And he is a delightful person with great communcaitiosn skills.

Recent Review: The first job Julio did for me was a quick yard clean up of dead leaves accumulated over 5 years. He also moved a huge potted off of my deck down a flight of stairs. I was impressed and promised to call him when I was ready to do my landscape. The landscape project was awesome, Julio came for an estimate on the same day I called. We discussed my project and he spent additional time thoughtfully measuring and planning and gave me a written estimate the following day. We agreed on a start date, he was always prompt in arrival and his crew was polite, neat and easy to work around since they needed to go through my garage to get to the yard. The patio is made of 1 foot square pavers and they are all aligned perfectly straight and level. The wall and raised planter are also straight and level. I was completely blown away by the quality of the work and how pleasant it was to have Julio and his small crew on site each day. I wanted to put the materials on my credit card, so I gave him my Lowes card and he returned it to me with a very neat organized envelope of receipts. I was impressed with his honesty and integrity, his priority was that I was pleased with the outcome of the job. I most certainly was pleased and I plan to call Julio in the spring to put in the plants. I would be happy to provide any additional information needed.

AEco Friendly Energy Company
We initially hired Eco Friendly to remove the chimney that the associated fireplace had been blocked off and had wall board over it from a previous remodel. They came out and gave us an estimate which we found reasonable. They started immediately and completed it in the allotted time frame. Not only did they remove the chimney, they also removed the fireplace, repaired the stucco,  matched the paint of the wall and repaired the roof. It looks absolutely beautiful!   We were so happy with their work on that project, we hired them to replace for the backyard fence re-do. They did a great job at communicating with us, they cleaned up when they were done for the day and were overall very professional. We are overjoyed with the results and will definitely use them for any future projects!

ANichols Retaining Walls & Pavers
The wood retaining wall in our backyard was old and collapsing.  After getting a couple of quotes, we decided to go with Nichols because: 1) he is professional and knowledgeable, 2) he quoted $2,000 less and 3) his estimated time to clear the old wall and build a new wall was a couple days less than the other guys!  He brought by sample blocks for us to look at on Sunday, started work on Monday and by Wednesday afternoon we had a new wall!  The wall looks really nice and level and a hundred times better than our old wood mess.

We needed to have a large retaining wall replaced on our property and while the job was either to big for some contractors yet to small for others. Zack at Green Bay was knowledgeable and understanding of what we needed to have done. Along with his team, they were able to come up with an amazing design for our retaining wall. They were able to complete it quickly and with respect to our property and pets. Zack went above and beyond our expectations to make sure that we were satisfied through every step in the process.

Fantastic. Chris McDonnell is absolutely fantastic! We had a terrible time trying to find a stove to fit our 1982 kitchen. Chris moved the gas mains behind the stove, to do this correctly he opened the wall and sealed up the wall again to such high standards we were amazed. He is honestly fantastic.

This was tricky, because the wall had to match other retaining walls that are almost 100 years old. Other contractors I spoke to had no interest in trying this.

Excellent, Sergio had plenty of good ideas and worked diligently to create a low-water use rock and plant garden and a new lawn. He built 2 retaining walls and put in walkways. He worked with large stone slabs. He upgraded our curtain-drain drainage system. We've hired him to come back and do more.

Gophers chewed under former wooden retaining wall and emptied dirt onto concrete next to my house. Plus, large agave plants were also threatening to bring down a 30 year retaining wall. I got two estimates, Chris came out to give me an estimate, measured the wall exactly and followed up with a written estimate. He was also ON TIME and that is huge with me. The work took about 7 days (we were out of town) and about 6-7 people. They replaced the wooden wall with a concrete block wall. It looks fabulous, it will last forever. In the meantime, part of our back fence fell during a recent windstorm. My first call was to QLC and Chris. I don't need another estimate. They are coming out next week to replace a portion of the fence.

They provided a prompt estimate and were very professional. Mike offered wonderful advice. The guys did an excellent job constructing the walls. We were very pleased and impressed with the results. Every rock was fit to perfection. We will definitely use them for future projects. We look forward to working with them again. Great guys all-around.
