Exterior Contractor reviews in El Sereno Car

    Exterior Specialists did an amazing job on our house! We hired them to do a full painting of the exterior, including repairing cracked stucco in a number of areas and priming and painting our newly installed fascia. Not only did they do an amazing job with the fascia, they also patched and sealed a number of areas where our fascia wasn't flush with the rafter tails. Our house is on a hill so much of the work was 2 stories up. The attention to detail was evident even on the less visible second story areas. At any time- and multiple times- throughout the project they were very receptive to addressing any areas of concern that we pointed out. This extended to the crew that was there each day, not just Chris. We felt like we could point out an area to anyone and it would be addressed, no guilt trips, no sighs, just simply "no problem". They also painted our interior entry way, staircase, living room, hallway, and 4 doors. The interior had a number of cracks as well and they did a great job repairing and re-finishing all of the areas that looked terrible previously. We couldn't be more pleased with the way the project turned out, and we can't recommend Chris and his team strongly enough.

    So Cal Builders & Design Inc
    I had been refereed to So Cal Builders & Design from an online home serve site. I first spoke with a lady from their call center, she was very helpful and polite. She took my info and told me I would get a phone call. I did not think I was going to get a return call but I did! That same day! ����. Avi returned the call, I explained what my project specs were and asked what was needed to start this project. Avi explained all the details so I would know what to expect for this size job. He then offered to make an appointment so I could see a current job site he and his team are working on. I took the opportunity; I am glad I did. I was so impressed with my meeting. The work site was amazing, the project had original stone work that will be preserved, the site looked organized and his team was working. It was all under control. Avi is very knowledgeable he answered all my questions and scenario that I needed advice on. I also had a chance to briefly meet the owner of the property. He was all smiles he could not say anything negative all praises and how honest and the great job Avi is doing. I was so impressed cannot wait to start my project with this team from So Cal Builders & Design. Sarah P.

    Color Fusion
    Raul worked on our house in a span of two days, painting two bathrooms, our full kitchen, and 3 additional walls. The work also included patching of cracked drywall and even repairing the patching job of a previous job. He even went back to the paint store to rebuy a white paint so it matches exactly what is existing. Raul did honest hard work and charged a fair fee. He kept receipts for all the paint purchased and even worked around our pesky indoor dog. He listened to my concerns about what I want with the house in general and even gave thoughtful advice that saved me money. We already plan on hiring Color Fusion again to help us with some exterior painting and will recommend him to everyone in the neighborhood.

    Cielo Construction Company
    Tom Cohen and Joe Sapir were great. They went through the possibilities and options with us, including what we could do with our budget and possibilities for financing. We bought our house as part of a repossessed hillside property, and we had to buy it in "as is" condition with decades of deferred maintenance. We had chipped away at fixing up the interiors over the past ten years, and were ready for a major (and long overdue) overhaul of the exteriors. The house is 1,200 square feet, but the garage is basically two stories with the living area on the third floor. That means a lot of stucco to repair and a lot of surface to paint. We needed new windows to replace the 50-year old ones that were original with the house, along with a new front door and sliding glass door in the back. This included expanding the size of the windows so that they were bigger (and actually up to code). The insulation in the attic was very old and needed to be replaced as well. Our garage door was dented (by a previous owner) and needed to be replaced along with the motor. Our back porch was falling apart, and we needed that repaired and painted. Our back yard had little privacy and was too hot to spend much time in for most of the year, so we also had them put in a large alumawood patio cover that extends over the porch and most of the yard (to the edge of our garden). It was important to us not to just pick a "low bid" contractor and instead to get a company that would do the work with high-quality materials and skilled crews with proper insurance and quality guarantees. We wanted this to be the last major overhaul we have to do on the exteriors of this house. The crews that came to do all of the work were very skilled, and worked with us to make sure they were doing exactly the work we wanted. Each phase of the project went quickly and efficiently, with prompt inspections and "touch-ups" afterwards to make sure everything was done well. Tom and Joe were very responsive and communicated well with us throughout the projects. We are very happy with the work, and we got our money's worth.

    O'Malley Construction Co
    Randy was responsive and communicated by text and visited the house in April. We looked at the project and he promised to get back with a bid. I texted him a reminder that we hoped to get a bid. He texted this back: "I'm getting them. I'm just a little busy to have gotten back with a bid." I replied back that we remained interested and asked him to "get back to us when you have time". We never heard back from him again. He seemed like a nice guy, but contractors waste valuable time when they don't follow up or give you bids - or say they don't think the job is for them. He just went into radio silence, or forgot about us completely.

    Pasadena Concreteworks Inc
    Ron was very responsive to my initial email in February, and made a visit to our house. He was very nice and took video of the project. Because we're in the City of L.A., he began to waffle about whether we needed permits. I informed him that I had been to the City Bldg & Safety department once, but I went down a second time and confirmed we didn't need permits. Ron claimed he would give us an estimate, but he never did. He just stopped responding. We found another contractor and had excellent work done. Did not need permits. It's okay if contractors don't want to do a job, but Ron was not really straightforward with us, and didn't follow up with a price or any closure. Maybe he got a bad vibe that my wife and I didn't know what we wanted, but we continually, politely, insisted we needed an initial estimate to help us decide what we could afford to do. We've worked with many contractors over the years. We're very glad we didn't use Ron on this job. Sorry to give an F, but I rely on Angie's List to give me information like this.

    Amilcar's Construction
    Well, unfortunately, his worker did a great job around the doors, but then screwed up the cement. Amilcar came out to redo it, at which point I paid him in full for the job. He said it would take a few days for the cement to set. As you can see in the photo, his patch-up job stained the porch and cracked immediately. I called and texted him NUMEROUS times for 2 MONTHS begging him to come repair the bad job, but he never replied to ANY of my calls or texts. Now I have to hire someone to fix it, incurring additional costs. I'm so disappointed. This could have been avoided so easily.

    Fernando's Complete Landscape & Hardscape
    They did an amazing job - all the work was really high quality! Though we got behind schedule a bit (rain & materials delays + the flagstone took much longer than anticipated), Fernando did a great job of communicating with me frequently so I always knew where things stood with the project. The team also worked weekends to make up some time. In addition, Fernando helped problem solve as issues came up (as they do with any project!) and was able to flag things that I would have missed otherwise. All in all, I am so glad I chose to use Fernando's company for this project - not only did he offer competitive prices from other contractors, but he helped reduce stress for me in what could have otherwise been a monster project.

    Clif Jones Painting Company
    I was going to hold off on reviewing this company, but I feel the need to warn others, after Clif bothering me about work he does not want to perform, out of the blue, on one of my very few days off from work (and, I thought, from Clif & his workers as well... but apparently no such luck) -- Thanksgiving Day. Clif does a lot of boasting, and it turns out getting him to deliver on what he boasts is a very arduous process. He consistently does not do what he says. All I expected was for him to do what he said. He said he'd be on the job site every day, which is far from true, among many other things. When you have concerns, if you like to be told things like (yes, these are direct quotes): "Why do you hate me so much?" and "Calm down"... And if you want to be told you are "flat out micromanaging" him, that you are "confrontational", and "combative" when you ask a simple question about the work being done (or not being done, as the case may be)... Then this is your man to work with.  Clif Jones is the most unprofessional person I have ever worked with. His employees are good and easy to work with. Yet, his degree of unprofessionalism leaves me in awe. If it weren't for his workers, I would give Clif an "F" in professionalism. Clif's foreman, Marco, communicates very well and listens when I speak -- even if/when there are mistakes -- instead of talking over me without letting me get even a sentence out, as Clif consistently does. If I could hire Marco without Clif, I would. As it is, the huge hike in price above other companies that Clif Jones does his best to justify via copious boasting & bullying, is really not worth it to me. Nothing is worth the way Clif Jones has behaved. My advice is shop around. Your options that are several thousand dollars less are probably a much better choice. Don't believe the hype (of Clif Jones).  I will elaborate more when it is not Thanksgiving Day, and when the job is complete. My update: I spent 10 hours today working on my own home with Clif's employees (I am very adept at the work, I just thought I was paying $16k for them to do it, not have to be so involved and work myself as well). There were many areas that were not properly scraped or sanded (and/or not scraped or sanded at all) before priming & painting -- I could peel the paint off with my fingers, literally, as I showed the workers & other witnesses. His workers were stressed because they said Clif told them they would be in trouble if they did not finish my house today. Even though Clif told me I was paying for three full weeks of work -- 6 days a week, 8 hours per day (be warned, they only actually work for 5-6 hours per day, on a good day) -- and it has only been 2.5 weeks of work. Clif is rushing his workers to wrap it up and it shows. I had to demand for them to do the work, and after much resistance, finally they did... But they did not finish and worked into the dark, and it was a very rough/unfortunate way to spend the evening. These emails (below) speak for themselves. If you want to be threatened to be sued and/or have a lien put on your house -- because you ask for time to review receipts and to have the job actually completed on you home: wow, Clif Jones is your man. Note: Marco said he was instructed by Clif to not leave my home until he got a check from me. Even though he knows the job is not complete. This is very creepy and unprofessional when the workers are already at my home 3 hours later than they are supposed to be, and you are a woman, alone, having this conversation in the dark on your patio -- where the worker is standing & says he will not leave. Clif put both Marco and me in a horrible & unprofessional situation, and I filed a complaint with the Contractor's State License Board tonight. I have ever experienced anything like this degree of bullying from someone I am hiring to do a job.

    Emails: Clif, It's clearly best to do things by the book with you. I should not have issued a check at all to you when the job is not yet complete. When it is complete, I will pay you, as agreed. In light of your hostile email, a stop-payment has been placed for the check I wrote to you. I should not have written it to begin with, as the job is not complete, and all my giving it to you did was cause hostility... Which is the opposite effect of what I wanted. As stated, I appreciate you and your employees not being at my home from now on unless I am here to supervise. I look forward to the job being complete.

Things do not go well when I am not here to supervise. I can do Saturday, which is one of my few days off. I paid you $5095 to be nice, the job is not complete and I did not have to pay you anything until it is complete. You have no way of proving what materials you did or did not use on my house. You were not here. I was here, when I was not here my neighbors were keeping watch, and Marco was here. It appears you charged me for things that weren't used. Not giving me time to review the receipts, and your guys taking off with all kinds of materials I paid for is a problem. This happened because you are rushing them to finish the job. They normally finish by 2pm, and today you kept them here past 5pm -- which very negatively affected both me and my tenants. There is still paint splattered & spilled that, more than once, you & your guys said you would clean up -- on windows and on the patio. I would like that taken care of as well, as you said you would. If you want to go the route of charging more money, then I would love to be reimbursed the 10 hours of labor I did today to help your guys -- out of kindness.

You are now trying to get the guys to leave MY brushes for you, Brushes I paid for . This is what's going to happen . I am going to replenish my supplies that were taken from my shop and used on your home . You WILL pay for them , in addition to the existing material bill . You will either pay for the materials by check or I will file a mechanics lien on your home immediately and take you to court , which will cost more than the materials but I am fine with that and so is my attorney . Marco also said he doesn't want to come back . I might have to bring another guy in for a day . I will let you know what day works for me and you let me know what day works for you . You wanted to go this route . Then that's what we are going to do. Best Regards CJ Painting -----Original Message----- From: K Sent: Saturday, November 28, 2015 5:03 PM To: Clif Jones Subject: Receipts/materials Clif, I had no idea I would be charged for so many types of supplies, and so many that were not used/leftover. When you spoke here today, I did not know there was so much leftover and there is no way I can use all of the leftover materials. After all of the receipts & materials are sorted through, your men can take the things I can't possibly use in such quantities, and I would like the receipts/materials charge to be adjusted accordingly. I don't have time to go through it all now. I understood the "materials" mentioned in our contract and in our conversations before you began work to be mainly paint and primer, and I now understand differently. None of my other painters/bids charge for materials in such a way, so I am surprised. You say your bid is not time and materials, which is especially strange (to me) -- to literally be charged for tape. I obviously did not understand what you meant by "materials" in your bid. Marco knows what he bought & what he used, but he does not want to go through the receipts. It will take me time to figure out all of the receipts & materials -- and to sit down in the daylight to do so. I've been working with your men all day, helping them do their work on the house, since 730am -- because they said told them they had to finish today. I will give Marco a check for the remainder of the actual job bid, $5095, but not for the supplies -- until this is sorted out in a way that is fair and accurate. I also need to look the house over in the daylight to give my final approval. It is getting dark and they aren't done yet, there are a few things that aren't done yet -- like a switch-plate under the walkway that they removed & said they would cut to fit and/or replace. There is a missing screen & missing parts for two other screens. My plants & things are still moved around from the guys moving them. I will need at least one guy here another day to take care of these things -- in the daylight. Going this late has already caused me to cancel other commitments I had for tonight, which is unfortunate. Thank you, K Sent from my iPhone
