Quite well. In my first call to him, Don asked essential questions about the issues and prior to coming out, did considerable homework about my partcular model. He did the maintenance descaling treatment throroughly. He then showed me on a diagram where the plumbing was never installed correctly, suggesting that this might be the reason the heater runs too much. While with me he called the manufac...

The above client review is false.I did not overcharge him for unapproved wet rot repairs. The contract, -which he added revisions to, and agreed to and signed in September 2019; stated clearly that wet rot repairs would be charged out at $100.00/2 men hour plus materials. He was sent photos by text and e-mail of the damage and repairs as they were going on. The starting date outlined in the contra...

All of these jobs were done to perfection. We enjoy our walk-in shower, and are the tiles ever beautiful! When we have a quick question, Don will assist on the phone and stay on the phone with you as long as you need his assistance. Our neighbors have commented how great the pergolas look; he put them in place with incredible precision. Don is highly competent, reliable, and did all his jobs to ou...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The projects included converting the bathtub in our bathroom into a walk-in shower. Don also put beautiful redwood pergolas on the south- and north-side of our house. Over 10 years or so, we had called him frequently for jobs like installing a new dishwasher, correcting electrical issues, fixing door lock problems, installing and maintaining a new water softener, fixing doors that had been improperly installed at the time of construction.

Weird! Constantly requesting payment because his workers we're from Santa Barbara and he had to ”buy their lunch and put them up for the nights they were here.” Told him ”not my problem” I felt like an ATM machine. Had to call him back to finish important things like calling and sealing plumbing. Toilet moved when sat on. Still there is paint that needs to be finished. Purchased very expensive til...

the bathrooms were gutted and remodeled from scratch. I asked for the shower heads to be raised. he did not. he plumbed the shower valve incorrectly which results in water flowing out the shower head when you fill the tub. I specifically asked for one-piece, dual flush toilets. in the upstairs he installed a one-piece, single flush toilet. I told, in writing, the downstairs bath would have a one-p...
