    C & L Construction
    C&L Construction performed our job with professionalism and expertise! Eli is warm, friendly and honest and that is so important when you have projects in your home. Communication was quick and consistent and we felt included throughout each stage of the project. I would definitely recommend C&L Construction to anyone and use them again myself!

    Nexxus Remodeling Inc
    This is where it gets interesting: I interviewed three top rated businesses from Angies List which is my usual pattern. The first two were usual, pleasant, listened to my vision, took notes. I had reviewed all their reviews and brought up some issues that had been mentioned (not every customer can be pleased of course) which they explained or clarified. The third was Tony from Nexxus. After explaining my process of vetting he told me I was wasting my time, that my (common) approach tended to essentially have contractors race to the bottom in price and quote an unreasonable price that would not result in good quality work. Not only that but that having a design drawn so early was also a waste of time and money and useless because things change as you go along, with additions, obstacles etc. Besides being brash and opinionated, he looked like a biker with tattoos on his hands, And his quote was the highest of the three. But he pointed out one thing. All reviews from people who ACTUALLY HIRED HIM were A's. All the negative reviews were from people who were put off by his attitude, some reviews based only on the initial phone call and for whom he had done no work. So i went to his website and watched a video where he explained why he believed the process of getting so many quotes was not helpful and even detrimental to a good outcome. (He needs to update that video, it is a bit low energy.) Now I had had work done in the past, and had sub-par results because i had to work and could not keep an eye on things, so i was determined to use a contractor to oversee everything. In thinking about it, and reading reviews of his work, it occurred to me that the subcontractors he hires must do good work to be able to produce the results quoted in the other reviews, and I found out later he has worked with them for years, no turnover. So after explaining to him that I thought that we would be butting heads throughout the process, I hired him. ( I had a strong vision and strong personality myself.) Things turned out as he said. Where we expected one weight bearing wall, after demolition there were two that were weight bearing. The inspector wanted TWO beams on one side due to poor design of the original house making three beams. Due to weight calculations, the beams had to be the stronger composite beams. The ceiling of the kitchen came down (there had been a prior leak, and revealed galvanized pipe and some odd criss crossing of pipes that explained the glug glug glug we would hear upstairs in bathroom from sink when the bathtub was draining. We discovered the roof leaks that had been missed due to years of drought and blocked by insulation and the stucco based ceiling. And after demolition i was able to re-vision the kitchen in a way i could not before. I was initially seeing just an updated galley type kitchen disappointed that there was not enough room for a freestanding island. So i was sitting in the distant corner looking at the space available and a totally different design came to mind. By creating two "islands" coming off the wall i would have the same effect that i wanted. One would be a cooking space with exhaust fan, stove oven, sink and prep space, next to double wall oven. The other one in the former sun room would serve as informal eating area with sink to rinse dishes and dishwasher next to it. That left the other wall free to create one long counter with the 5 windows, no need for upper cabinets so it is open and airy, and room for two prep areas with counter space and sinks. (yes if you are counting, that makes 5 sinks but one is the utility dog washing sink next to the stacked full size washer-dryer.) The floor had to be bulletproof with three dogs who race around the house and the mess i make cooking, so he brought in a group that did epoxy floors for restaurants and car showrooms. With the master bathroom upstairs, the plan was to include the other bathroom's small square shower space into the new master shower. But after all was gutted, in made more sense to put the wall hung toilet in that space freeing up more room for the steam shower that now had room for two shower heads and a bench. And custom work really means custom. Standard counters are lower that i like, so i had mine made two inches taller. They literally held up the sink, and all fixtures so i could determine the height and placement of all fixtures. They blocked out the shower floor so i could optimize the space before they started. At the beginning of the project, Tony went with me to all the main shops to pick out all the finishings, faucets, shower heads etc. (The kitchen faucets i got online) and especially tile for both bathroom floors and walls, and tile for shower and bathroom floor and ceiling (you need to tile the ceiling in a steam shower.) Fortunately, i had changed my job location and go home for lunch, and Tony met me nearly every day to go over the work and plan. Head were butted. But not with me, but ON MY BEHALF with the subcontractors who pushed back on some of my ideas (5 sinks). So, in the end, Tony was correct. Even though it makes Tony's job more difficult, a fixed design early on would have limited my ability to change on the fly and the quote he gave me anticipated the multiple changes I ended up making. So, do not be put off by his gruff facade, me is that way because he cares. I enjoyed working with Tony, and plan to have him do any further work needed on this house. If you want quality, and expert craftmanship go with Tony. If you want the lowest price and motel quality work, go with the lowest bidder. And hurry up. Turns out he is a biker and races on weekends so who knows what might happen at his age! (Had to get a dig in.) Any questions, e-mail me at sjjjbrown@sbcglobal.net

    Boston Brick & Stone, Inc
    I called for a foundation inspection and to have some cracks repaired in my house.  One guy came out, crawled under my house and seemed to do a thorough inspection including pictures of what he determined were  faulty repairs from the previous contractor.  After about two weeks, I finally get a written report indicating that the foundation expert was going to look at the pictures and get back to me.  Fast forward a few more weeks.  I contact try contacting the guy who did the initial inspection only to find out he is no longer with the company.  I contact the foundation guy and he makes an appointment to come and do a re-inspection.  Although he did come, he clearly was not comfortable coming to my neighborhood because it was during the time of the Michael Brown/Ferguson unrest and he did not want to be anywhere near Leimert Park.  This was in November 2014 and in December I emailed him to see what his estimate was.  He emailed me back, said he thought he had sent me a report, apologized and I never heard from him again.  He did however mention that he did not think this was something that I could present to my insurance company.  Maybe that is why he never got back to me besides the fact that he did not want to be in the Crenshaw/Leimert area. Needless to say, I am looking for someone else at this point and I will be sending this same scenario to Angie's List.

    Boston Brick & Stone, Inc
    It was a Big Deal that I purchased from Angie's List. I am actually considering working with them. I have been talking to my insurance company regarding some things. I think they did a real good job. I haven't spent any additional yet. The person they sent out was very nice and very thorough. They were professional and knowledgeable. They were good. They did well for the deal.

    The Foundation Works
    Matt Frey came out to inspect my property and he was 5 minutes early which I appreciated. (I am tired of contractors showing up late!).  He crawlers all under the house, took plenty of pictures, made sketches to demonstrate the problems and issues.  He then provided detailed inspection report via email two days later with cost breakdowns which fit in the budget we had talked about on his visit.  The project was approved and a date was selected.  The crew that came out to perform the work were early - thank you. There were five very polite and hard working guys who came to do the work.  They completed the job on time having accomplished all of the repairs that had been negotiated under contract.  Each day the crew cleaned up after themselves which is a real added plus in my book.  
    I would highly recommended The Foundation Works for your foundation work.

    The Foundation Works
    Matt, the inspector, was punctual, thorough and went out of his way to explain his findings to me right on site. I received his written report in clear and understandable English without the use any trade jargon later that day, together with photos illustrating the key issues.

    ESI General Construction Inc
    The estimate from ESI General Construction was $3800. They ended up refunding me $1100. The only way I could get my refund was that they told me not to say that I was not satisfied. The experience was horrible. It is not a company I would recommend.

    Avalin Seismic Construction Co Inc
    Inspector spent more than an hour under my house checking out a number of loose post and pier supports and foundation cracks. Then the boss never called with an estimate.  He never would return my calls and the phone number was just to a machine.  Very strange action. Very rude, very unprofessional.  If they didn't want to do the job for some reason, he should have at least told me why. 
    Still have not heard from him.

    L C GENERAL CONSTRUCTION INC
    LC Construction did an EXCELLENT and thorough job on another big foundation repair job!  I wish I could give Mr.
    Canta's LC Construction an A++++ rating if Angie's List had one!  I have rated price as "Fair" because, I beleive that he gave us a "fair" price, not that he was too expensive or anything like that.  Again, Leonard Canta was pleasant, professional and prompt to the job site.  He called to say he was running late, but still arrived 20 mins. early.  His Workers showed up He was clear and detailed with his paperwork and CLEAR with what he would do and how long it would take.  He noted that there were "un finaled" permits with the City of LA's Department of Building and Safety and took it upon himself to offer to call them in so that it would be better for us as property owners/managers. 
    Like many homeowners we had no idea that there were "un-finaled" permits on the property(ies) and that we could be fined for this (we had unfortunately hired and paid another "construction" company, to repair the foundation at this house.  They made no repairs, just placed some "Simpsons" that according to inspectors were "not to code" in some areas under the house, in some cases the "Simpsons" "had undermined/made the foundation worse" according to one of the non-biased inspections we received.
    He is Excellent.  He provides an Excellent service at a fair price.  You WILL NOT be disappointed.

    White Castle Construction
    I was very pleased with White Castle services. The day of my foundation inspection the owner arrived to personally explain everything after his employee completed the inspection and provided pictures, report, etc. I was happy with the no-nonsense explanation and sales pitch. When I hired them to complete the repairs, the crew showed up on time, was respectful of my property and cleaned up completely after each of the 2 days of work. One week later, the city inspector signed off on the work. I feel better having the work completed and would recommend them to my neighbors.
