    JC Painting
    I have had multiple projects completed by JC Painting including painting the house inside and out. They did great work at a reasonable price. One of the jobs they completed for me was to install a "Life Deck" coating on my upstairs deck (18 feet by 16 feet), everyone complements me on the deck, so very pleased.

    BCG Remodeling
    Excellent, the contractor that did the work was so helpful and reasonable. Everything I needed done on my list of things to do was done quickly and at the most reasonable price I could ask for. John was informative through the whole process and gave me options for every possible scenario when it comes to plumbing repairs. I will be using BCG again in the future and will be referring them to family and friends.

    Grade A Handyman Services
    Antonio did an excellent job with everything, especially the amateur radio antenna installation. He drilled the hole thru the wall, ran some PVC tubing large enough to slide the coax cable and connectors outside. Then he installed about 15 foot of PVC from the upper outside of house to the ground to cover the coax cable. Antonio is hard-working, professional, very courteous, polite, and friendly. He goes out of his way to be helpful, doing whatever needs to be done. Will definitely hire again!!

    Earl was great, it was raining hard for San Diego standards and gave me a call that he would be a little late. Once he was here he took his time to understand what the problem was and help us uncover 3 issues that we were having with one of them being a potential fire hazard. I would definitely recommend his work for anyone needing help with electrical issues. Thank you for your service to our country as well!

    RC Energy Solutions
    Top notch team and service! Right on par with pricing and better with service. That's a great combination. What I liked the most was that Justin focused on what his company did and never bashed the other guys. That to me shows confidence and respect for the industry. They were perfect with timeliness, total professional installation crew and clean. I also like that they do more than just solar. I total energy acumen is more advantageous for a company than just "solar." Thanks guys.

    Baker Electric Home Energy
    Everything was done quickly and very professionally. It's been about 3 years, and the converter failed recently. They ordered a new one and replaced it all under warranty. We've been very pleased with them.

    Far West Electric
    I called to get a quote on replacing the panel and adding a single 15a circuit. The initial communication and professionalism was excellent. They scheduled a time within 2 weeks and coordinated with the city for permits. When I got the call to confirm the install I was told the technician did not have time to quote the additional circuit in advance but would look at it when they are there and come back to do the work another day. Unfortunately the tenant ( this is a rental property) did not feel comfortable letting him in to review the additional work so we talked about it over the phone and he said they would send a quote! Which did not happen, but not a big deal. The dissatisfaction occurred when I asked to see a picture of the completed work. The stucco around the install was torn out leaving big areas of exposed beams. I asked if they had a trim kit or something to seal it up and was told they did not make such a thing and that stucco work was not part of the job since they are electricians only. When I expressed my surprise over not being told there would be a large hole to fill, I was told the quote said they are not responsible for stucco repair. Well...sure enough, they pointed that out to me and it is there is fine print on the bottom of the quote. I would say 'not responsible for repairs' and 'there will certainly be stucco repair needed' are 2 different things all together. They were nice enough to refer me to a nice repairman who completed the work quickly and I then contacted a painter. The repair and paint cost another $1,100 dollars, on top of the panel upgrade cost of $1,750, and the amount of work needed was a complete shock ( see image). I just wish this extra work and cost would have been communicated up front. All this being said, overall they seem like nice competent electricians.

    Shea Electric
    It took a while to get them on the books but once we were able to do so, he and his co-worker Jose banged out the work quickly and did a great job. Once the date was set, they showed up on time and completed the work quickly and cleaned up the area they worked in (they brought their own tarps as well). Price was right and the quality was top notch. Thank you, gents!

    California Smartscape
    Overall, it went great. We waited a year to write this review because we wanted to see how everything held up, in case there might be any issues that arose after the initial install. Among the firms we interviewed, California Landscape was the most flexible in trying to meet our budget goals while also meeting our overall design intent. Their professional landscape designer, Jesse, did an excellent job listening to our high-level intent and our ideas, as well as contributing his own suggestions. His cost proposal(s) were thorough and included options that we could potentially subtract in order to stay within budget. He delivered beautiful color 3D design drawings that included pictures of proposed plants. Key element of the new design were (1) replacing all concrete with pavers, (2) removing rock that covered the front "lawn" & side gardens and replacing it with more tropical looking gardens, (3) removing the wood deck and installing a 2-tiered paver patio, (4) removing the Bermuda grass and replacing it with artificial turf., and (5) removing a palm tree that was blocking lake views. After the design was signed off, construction was planned. Construction began roughly on time and went largely as planned, although the project took a couple of weeks longer than the original 4 week schedule. We were well informed of each step and each day's and week's plans. Crews were efficient and courteous. The project manager, Leo, was diligent, although he was managing a large number of jobs (more than we expected), so he wasn't on-site quite as often or for as long as we were originally expecting. As any issues arose (either as noted by California Landscape or by ourselves), they were openly discussed and quickly resolved. Some resulted in slight cost increases, others resulted in slight decreases. We felt pricing of any changes was fair and California Smartscape was very straightforward to deal with. They were very professional and we had no major conflicts. At the end of construction, the resulting landscaping looked beautiful, although obviously many of the plants were still quite small and hadn't grown in yet. We received many compliments right away from people who saw the front & side landscaping. We also received many compliments from people who saw our rear landscaping (the house is on a lake and boaters frequently pass by our back year). We were delighted with the way it looked. The only significant glitch that we ran into for the construction part of the project had to do with a railing that we wanted on the raised rear 2-tier paver patio. Although we technically didn't need a railing because of the height of the decks, we wanted one. California Landscaping was not willing to take on the railing portion of the project themselves, but they said they could refer us to a railing contractor who could provide what we wanted. Unfortunately, when the recommended railing contractor showed up, he passed on the railing project because it was not a simple type that he only does. California Landscaping was unable to help us at all once the railing contractor punted, so we were left on our own to source it. That turned out to be problematic. We eventually got it done, but the railing part took much longer than we wanted and it cost quite a bit more than we had planned on. The final result looked great and turned out great, but the railing part of the whole process was painful. The railing aspect of the project was another reason why we delayed our Angie's list review - we didn't want to provide a review until the full project was completed - including the railing. Then the heavy, heavy rains came in the winter of 2017. It was a good opportunity to see how the full landscaping (installed in the spring & summer of 2016) would hold up. We had a 1-yr warranty so we were still well within the warranty period when the winter rains came. Well, the rains prompted some settling of part of the raised 2-tier deck, which caused a section of pavers to tilt upward. The deck area also puddled significantly due to the settling. So, we pointed out the quality problem to California Smartscape. The company owner, Robert, came out to inspect it himself and immediately committed to repairing it back to new. Cost was never discussed, but the repair was done without any cost to us. A couple of weeks later crews were dispatched to repair the paver deck settling problem and they did an absolutely first class job at the repair. It looks brand new and we're confident that the settling problem won't recur. The company held up to their high standard of quality from design, to construction, to any subsequent fixes that were needed later on. We would (and have already) highly recommend California Landscape.

    Tibi Home Design INC.
    Wow, I cannot say enough about our experience with Tibi Home Design. Elmar, the working people and everyone at the office were very professional and great people during the whole work. They made our master bathroom a gorgeous modern space in 2 weeks. They all took great amount of pride in their work and they worked excellent as 1 big team. The remodeling went very fast, productive, spotless and courteous. They arrived promptly at 8:00am each morning during the week ready to work and left no earlier than 5:00pm. Elmar was very good at helping and supervising all the people and he also helped us along the way with our vision, suggestions and he even did it with a smile! Even the sub-contractors that worked at our house, had only nice things to say about him and that means a lot. We are looking forward to our next remodeling project.
