Our 1929 gravity heaters had finally failed, so we needed a whole new system—forced air and A/C.  This is something like major surgery for an old house like ours.  Even though the Haney bid was not the lowest we went with them, in part because of Yelp reviews.  I’m glad we did. The Haney crew was hardworking, knowledgeable, and very professional.  A supervisor came around almost every day to check up on the work.  The office staff was friendly and efficient.  As it turned out, the job was harder than they had originally anticipated, but they did not charge more than their bid for the system. I think it helped that they are larger company than most, so they have the capacity and experience to deal with problems as they come up.  My only regret is we did not do this years ago.

After being told on August 1, 2013 by a so-called "reputable" company that we have termites and need to tent our house by the end of the year, I immediately began making plans which entailed my daughter flying here to help  with the pets, etc.  At this point, I am not certain as to why I searched for another opinion, but the important part is that I did and found Wold Termite Company.  After a thorough check of our house on October 18, 2013, their final report was WE DO NOT HAVE TERMITES IN OUR HOUSE!

Javier is a true professional!  I have found him to be honest, innovative, reasonable, and gets the job done to your perfection.  If a city permit is required, he takes care of that.

I have contracted him to redo our two decks.

Using this organization is a win-win for all involved because they employ at-risk youths (with superivision on the jobs).  We recently used them to haul away a couple of piles of wood logs we had accumulated and which had started to get evidence of bugs.  After discussing the job with Alfred Garcigia, program coordinator, he knew a pick-up would be sufficient (vs. a larger truck) and a very reasonable price quoted.  They came slightly early and completed the job very quickly - including clean-up without my asking for it.  Last fall, I had used them to haul away a driveway-full of thatch when we had our lawn de-thatched.

called them for second opinion on possible termite or  dry rot damage to roof.  They did a very thorough inspection, determined the massive re-roofing recommended by another firm was not needed, but that the roof needed some general maintenance, including new flashing and sealing around sky lights and chimney.  When they actually did the work  (the next day) they found other problems but fixed them without expanding on the agreed upon, very reasonable, price.  They seem like very good people to work with.

Recently had our electrical sub panel upgraded and replaced with new amp circuits. Voltech Electric was priced reasonable and Aram was on-time, courteous, clean, and very knowledgeable about his work.  I would highly recommend Aram at Voltech for any electrical repair or renovations.

Sunshine Masonry re-built retaining walls and replaced/strengthened wood fences for us after we lost a major tree in early 2011.  Manuel Gonzalez and his son run a very reliable and professional business which we strongly recommend to anyone needing their services. Their work was very high quality, reasonably priced and neatly executed.

Tim has done several projects for us with beautiful results (e.g., creating a cabinet for our living room that perfectly reflects other pieces we had;  cleverly retrofitting a credenza I bought for $100 in a thrift shop for office files and supplies).  He's very talented and a perfectionist who takes great pride in his work.
