  • I had Built Strong level my home and quite impressed. Their crews are extremely knowledgeable and experts at what they do. They took photos throughout the project, even custom fit/ repaired my foundation in specific difficult areas and my home now leveled like new. Impressed with Built Strong.

  • From the very first day when Jose came out to assess the project and give me a quote, to the end of the project, Jose was always prompt, courteous and professional. I sought three quotes for the driveway replacement, and his was the most affordable, so that definitely was a factor in our choosing MB Paving. But what really sealed the deal for me were the great reviews on Angie's List and the fact that Jose was so patient with my questions and just comes across as very kind.
    It took two days to complete the driveway: the first to demolish and haul away the old concrete, move a couple of sprinkler heads to allow a widening of the area, and leveling/prepping the area for concrete. The next day they poured and brushed the concrete. Both days the crew arrived exactly on time, and they worked quickly and efficiently. I am so pleased with our new driveway--it looks fantastic! I highly recommend Jose and MB Paving!

  • Luis and his team did an excellent job on our 107-year old farmhouse.  Weather delayed the start of the project, but once underway, it went smoothly and quickly.  Of course we are extremely happy that our house is now resting on a solid foundation (and you can feel just how much more solid it is, which gives us a great sense of security), but the best part for us is how comfortable the encapsulation and insulation has made our home.  It's no longer cold and damp; the floors aren't cold; and the air quality is dramatically improved.  Luis promised that there would be a dramatic difference in the comfort level of our home and there is.  It is so warm and cozy -- just in time for the delayed winter.  We had a competitive bid from another Angie's List provider, but we are very happy we went with Xpert.  Luis has had decades of construction experience, which showed on the job.  He notices everything and stays on top of all of the details.  He also graciously helped us with advice on other projects we are planning that are completely unrelated to the foundation work he was doing.  In terms of cost, while an expensive project overall, we feel that we got our money's worth.  When the project was underway and hidden problems that required additional work came to light (literally), Luis worked with us to keep the cost as low as possible.  We are very glad we chose Xpert and highly recommend.

  • Alex is the project manager from doggers that we met with, and right away as we began explaining our ideas for the project, and showing the scope of work, he gave us insight on different ways to design the project, and right away we knew these were the guys. They weren't the absolute cheapest, but he convinced me that instead of extending the living room and creating a much more expensive project, we could convert the garage that we do not use to a req room, and utilize that space for the boys. He gave me a great price on the wet bar I wanted built, they also took care of some other small things I needed done around the house. their team works fast and cleaned up perfectly every day when they were done. Alex has great vision when it comes to design and suggested several nice additions to the plan I had, he really goes the extra mile to make sure his customers are happy. Everything looks amazing, I know down the line we will do more work with them. In a few months I am hoping, thanks again.

  • Two New-Pipe people arrived quickly.  They ran a camera through the cleanout at the front step of the house and showed me what they said were roots and damage to the mainline pipe causing blockage which caused the shower to backup in one bathroom and the toilet in the other bathroom to flood the floor.  They cleared the blockage but informed me that the pipe was in bad shape and really needed to be replaced as snaking it or power flushing it in the future would cause more damage.  I agreed to replacing it for about $5700.  They sent a crew the next day and dug a hole at the front door cleanout and another at the sidewalk.  They threaded SDR-17 through the old pipe (trenchless technique).  When they finished that, their supervisor informed me that there was visible damage to the clay pipe which runs beneath the front sidewalk to the main sewer line in the street.  I could not really determine by seeing what damage they were referring to so decided to trust what I was being told by the supervisor that he could save me money by taking care of it now so I wouldn't have to have the hole at the sidewalk dug again later when there would be a problem.  This was disturbing and I probably should have declined this additional job proposal to "perma-line" the existing clay pipe as a preventive measure suggested by the supervisor.  There seemed to be a sense of urgency and think I made a mistake in accepting the supervisor's opinion and therefore the amount of money I ended up paying was twice as much as I was prepared for as the total for both jobs came to about $10,000.  I have to say that the supervisor and the men working for him were all polite and worked hard--no question about that; however, my own lack of knowledge of plumbing problems and solutions and cost probably cost me more than I should have paid.  If I had it to do over, I would have definitely called at least one other plumbing company for an assessment and bid.  Instead, my own ignorance and sense of urgency that this needed to be taken care of immediately or it would probably cost more if I delayed, caused me much stress and money.

  • I initially called National Plumbing to replace a rusted and leaking pipe to a hose bib and then we discovered all the exterior piping was galvanized steel (30 years old), disintegrating in various locations in the yard.  It was necessary to replace the entire outside system with copper pipe.  Tony was able to begin the work the next day, and completed it by the second day.  He and his team were very efficient, professional and thorough in reorganizing the connections to the house and sprinkler valve system in the front and back yards.  He also removed some extraneous piping damaged in the earthquake and added a separate water regulator for the sprinkler system to mitigate the high water pressure affecting the valves.  In addition, he took extra time to replace the worn and leaking faucet stems and shower head in our shower.  He is very knowledgeable and experienced, and was very responsive to all my questions and concerns.  His team was very efficient in performing the work and straightening everything back up.  He made an unexpected job a more pleasant experience than I would have expected.  I would certainly have him back for any other plumbing installations that we may want to do in the future.

  • I called Bob.  He came over and started digging the same day.  His price never changed.  The report was in my hand in about 10 day max. start to finish.  AMAZING!
    Now because my architect and engineer are slow, I have not submitted this yet, but the county has gone over it, and there are no questions.  Bob has been in business a long time and re-assured me that if there is any problems, he will address them in the future - always helpful.

  • The Foundation Works is top notch A+ all the way!!!  I spoke with Ann, very nice person, to make an appointment and she was helpful in letting me know the person who would be inspecting, awesome job Brad, the cost and of course the day and time.  Sure enough the inspector by the name of Brad showed up and did a comprehensive look at the foundation of the house.  He also made a draft drawing of the house to let us know where if any problems existed.  After he was finished, approximately 40 minutes, he gave me a run down on why nothing was wrong with the foundation of the house.  Not only that, he did not charge me!!!!  Courteous and honest without a doubt!!!  I would HIGHLY recommend The Foundation Works to anyone!!!

  • The overall room addition process with them was smooth and they ensured that everything was right for my project and fit my needs. I expected an end result and they delivered it to me accordingly. All the construction work flowed on schedule and fortunately I did not experience any unpleasant problems or complications. The field supervisor Eli helped me understand the steps throughout the room addition and kept me at ease.  I have heard horror stories about construction companies not meeting time and quality deadlines, but I am more than satisfied with the work that California Construction Center provided.  

    I started searching for a reputable company online and found California Construction Center and gave them a call. They scheduled an appointment to see my home and gave me a fair estimate for my room addition, which was also within my budget. I met with a designer who was also the owner named Jonathan. He was very professional and personable throughout the consultation. He showed us on a 3D model how our new home will look like, my wife was amazed. Their price was very reasonable and given their credentials, I had a feeling that they were the best choice for a construction company.  

    After the agreement was made and the work began, I had mixed feelings. The hardest part was seeing my home being demolished in different areas, but I knew it had to be done in order for them to build the room addition. I was sure that one way or another my home was going to be changed for the better. The field supervisor Eli made sure that everything was on schedule and that my home would be better than ever. Not only that, the workers communicated with me well and helped me understand what was going on at each particular point of the project I asked about. In the end the addition was very well built and it perfectly blends into the rest of my home giving it a much needed size increase. California Construction Center went above and beyond my expectations, for that I highly recommend them!

  • Avalin was the first quote I got and they set the bar high. They were very professional and straightforward. I was emailed a very complete package and they were available for my questions..even emailing city codes regarding my questions. The Installation started quickly and was done in two days.
