We responded to your initial 845am request for a quote for pool services we do not perform with our standard reply explaining our services are limited to solar pool heating at 905am just 20 minutes after your request for a quote for a liner replacement (which we do not do). Later that day (1131am) you expressed an interest in an "idea as to the cost to do solar heating for a pool 14x28 and later t...

Mike and Ethan are great. They have been tending to my 20 year old solar pool heating system for years and always do a great job. They are straight up about what is worth fixing and keeping the system working at it's best. Mike shows no hesitation, climbing up on a roof which I dread to tread on, to repair my solar panels. Plus they are just nice to work with and they care about doing great work!!

He provided a detailed description of the steps needed to complete the job and a price estimate. A few days before the job he called to confirm. Ethan and Mike arrived right on time and went straight to work. Before beginning the job the system was checked and Mike and Ethan ensured t...

They responded quickly, were able to come to the house to check out our situation the same day because they were nearby and then sent us a detailed estimate explaining exactly what they would do -- removal, temporary storage, meeting flashing requirements, electrical work, seali...

This is the most professional, courteous, friendly company we have ever encountered. Appointments were kept, phone calls returned promptly. They provide a high quality product that is locally manufactured. When Ethan came to give us an estimate, he looked at the pool and pump location, measured the roof, sat down with literature and explained the system. What was most refreshing is there was no hi...

Solar Living was great. They deserve their excellent reputation. My job was fairly small but very frustrating. I called them for a simple repair and they noted that my panels were potentially under recall. I appreciated that because I had no way of knowing. I immediately contacted the recall administrator. Long story short, it has taken almost 9 months to work this out and zero amount of delays we...

Thank you for taking time to post feedback on your experience with our service of your solar electric system. Repairing rodent damage to wiring and roofs is a major issue with systems not designed to prevent rodents from nesting under the panels. We're happy we are able to get your system repaired and protected from future issues.
