    Bischoff Design Build
    Zac has been awesome. I'd totally recommend him and his team. They've been professional, reliable and the project is going to finish on time. We expect to move back in by our very hard and fast deadline of 2/15. With any big project, there will be issues, because no one can foresee everything and so dealing with someone who keeps the drama low and their problem-solving hat on (although there really haven't been many "problems") has made the project really workable and even enjoyable. Zac's bid docs were extensive and precise. I'd definitely recommend him as a contractor. Note that the photos attached are for the project almost, but not yet complete.

    Black Diamond Paver Stones & Landscape Inc
    Overall we were very satisfied with the work.�� The pavers are attractive and should be maintenance free.�� The prep work and installation were done in a professional and neat manner.
    The only problem: initially they patched the area between the pavers and the street, and reinforcing the berm, with an asphalt preparation that never hardened sufficiently.��
    When I pointed this out, they had the team dig out all the asphalt, and replace it with concrete at their expense.�� It now looks fine and seems to be very durable.

    Interviewed three contractors and Ruben got the project on time and materials basis because he understood that it was a restoration, not just a replacement, of the koi pond.
    He and his crew have done such excellent work that we have extended the project to become a thorough restoration of the back yard terracing, planting, and raised beds I built myself 20 years ago.
    I have worked closely with Ruben and his team and have felt very comfortable doing so.  In fact, I'm having a great time and feel fully involved.

    We actually only obtained a bid from this company and did not use them for the work as their bid came in at $50,000 higher than the previously highest bid (out of 4 bids). No quarrel with their responsiveness and professionalism, however. They even followed up with us. If we have concrete work in the future, we will ask for a bid again because, short of their exhorbitant price, they seem like a company that has the professionalism we desire. Price was way too high for us this time, but we encourage others to at least obtain bids from them - it may work for you.

    Ultimate Concrete
    This was a very preliminary meeting, but the first contact was so positive, I felt it merited an initial report.  I don't yet have a firm bid, but he was willing to give me a ballpark number, which hasn't been my experience with most others.  I was grateful for his best guess, since it will help me decide whether I want to do the work, or sell the property "as is." I was very impressed with his outstanding people skills and what strikes me as his high degree of integrity.  But perhaps most of all, I was struck by his willingness to go to the work rather than relying on the work to come to him.   Since I live in Oakland, and he's in Turlock, I commented on the distance he'd traveled.  As he explained it, he values his employees, and it's important to him to keep them working.   I find that kind of commitment from employer to employee to be refreshing, particularly in this economy.   If I decide to do the work, he'll be my first choice, and I'll update this report accordingly.

    Thor & his crew dug up invasive bamboo and then dug a trench for placement of a bamboo barrier. Although he doesn't advertise landscaping, he & his crew did a great job after discussing how to accomplish our goals. We earlier had his crew excavate the entire length of our fence for this same purpose (this took several days and was more expensive - $800) and we were so pleased that we had them come back and dig the trench along our front fence. We'll definitely be calling them back to finish off the last remaining area.

    John Wilkins Custom Kitchens represented by Aimee and Nader, listen carefully to your dreams then try their hardest to fulfill them. They are organized and detail oriented artists. When they are finished with your home, it will be much more beautiful and cleaner than you ever imagined. Thank you!

    The renovation went as smooth as one could hope when working with the city on a change of use permit.
