"I have used
Vista Carpenters Provider Name Locked
for several years for all of my handyman and home repair work. Several years ago I remodeled a home, which involved several months of work. They did excellent work in dealing with a mold issue in the kitchen, building a wall to enclose a room, a closet addition, remodeling a bathroom with a change in the layout of the fixtures, installation of cabinetry, mirrors, repairs to windows and various other items in my home. The company has also done major work on the sewer system, drains, air conditioning/heating, refridgerator and plumbing.

has done consistently excellent work at a very reasonable price. The work is professional and of the highest quality. I have referred dozens of my friends to the company and they have all been pleased and continue to use the company. I highly recommend

"I had a bigger job than I realized and Bill made me confident that he was going to take care of things. We would talk about the project daily, which allowed me to raise any questions or concerns. He was very professional, always on time, consciencious, always respectful of my property as far as prep work and clean up. Because of his years in the business his experience and contacts were very resourceful. He truly went above and beyond the call of duty. I really appreciated his work ethics and integrity."

arrived on time and did a great job. He covered the entire floor with plastic to protect my carpet. He did a very professional job and I would definitely hire him again."

"Very good experience. I contacted
Vista Carpenters Provider Name Locked
by e-mail. We chatted briefly on the phone. He came by briefly to spec the job (as did two other contractors). He made a written bid, which I accepted after reviewing the others. He and his team did a professional job of starting and finishing on time, doing a very detailed job, and cleaning up. They were nice guys, too. I highly recommend them."

"When I hired
Vista Carpenters Provider Name Locked
I thought either he or someone working for him would be performing all of the work - I did not know that contractors would be providing any of the work.
1) In the process of cutting/removing the exterior wood trim, my gas line was nicked but no mention was made at the time. When the painters began painting the exterior of the house a few days later, they brought the nick to my attention. When I advised
Vista Carpenters Provider Name Locked
about this via email - he denied that he had done this. When he came to the house to examine it, he did accept responsibility, but stated that his helper had done it.
Vista Carpenters Provider Name Locked
did have the gas line replaced and SDG&E did certify that there were no leaks but the pipe was not replaced the way it was found - a male/female connection was made outside where the pipe entered the house.
2)
Vista Carpenters Provider Name Locked
did a nice job on the creation of the pony wall but the initial pony cap was a piece of exterior unfinished lumber that was crudely nailed in place with 3 large nails and then primed. When I expressed my disappointment, he replaced that cap with a second cap that was made from 2 finished pieces of lumber but the edges were not even nor squared at the corners. He then left me a voicemail that the work/job was complete but he has denied doing so. I have since not allowed him to finish this as I do not have the confidence that he will perform the job correctly.
3) Did a good job on the casing around the doors.
4) Did a good job on the front security door.

gave great ideas during his initial walk through and provided references and the opportunity to see the work he'd done on his rental remodel. Our old house was a real challenge, with floors that were uneven, sloping, and out of true. The high spots had to be ground down and the low spots had to be filled so the floors were level in all areas. It took a lot of extra work and time, but the tile and wood flooring look fantastic. The family room was originally a patio between the kitchen and the garage. When
Vista Carpenters Provider Name Locked
opened up the kitchen wall to install the pocket door it turned out that the wall was originally an exterior wall, so there was the surprise of heavy beams and framing. This meant that almost the entire wall had to be removed and re-built to ensure it was still load-bearing yet able to accommodate the pocket door. The new wall was then refinished and textured to look exactly like the original. The concrete steps from the kitchen into the family room and from the garage into the family room had to be jackhammered out and re-done according to code. The tile work on the steps really highlights

's expertise and attention to detail in cutting and fitting multiple tile pieces. They look wonderful. When we were not happy with the original texturing of the walls in the family room,
Vista Carpenters Provider Name Locked
immediately went back and re-did them to our satisfaction. We also pointed out various minor things that needed to be fine-tuned, such as re-plastering a few dents in the ceiling - all of which was done without hesitation. His bottom line was "I want you to be satisfied with the work". The extra complications in dealing with our old house caused a lot of extra work and added about two extra weeks to the process, but

did not charge extra for this. We love our re-model and we recommend

"First visit confirmed we had dry rot and determined the extent and cost of repairs. The work was completed on time and on budget. After the fact I think a different method should have been used in one spot (replacement of a door jam rather than cut and replacing just a section) but the rest of the work appears to be excellent and I am satisfied.
