Sheri, Marc and team provided excellent service at a reasonable price to fix my wall and flooring after I suffered water damage. I plan on hiring them again for future work and highly recommend them to others.
American Castles Mike To the RESCUE!!! The water heater at my rental property burst on a Friday afternoon causing some major damage to the house. The renters were furious because their items got damaged and the house wasn't inhabitable after that. On the inside, the bathroom wall and under stairway closet were all soaking wet and drywall/carpet/padding had to be removed immediately to prevent mole build up. On the garage side where the water heater located, the entire wall was destroyed. so I called my home insurance who provided me with their preferred plumber who quoted an additional $540 out of pocket on top of what the insurance was going to cover just so he can bring up the water heater installation to code! He told me that it will take him 1+ week to order the water heater (duh...get one from Home Depot take only 1hr...which is what Mike did) and that he can install a temporary water heater and will charge $137/wk! He also referred me to a water damage restoration company which I was not too happy with either. Since it was an emergency and I went with that company. They came in and ripped out all the wet drywall without caring for any molding; especially for garage doors and closet doors! It seemed like what ever the water heater didn't damage, they did. They also broke my water heater intake shut off valve. damage the water heater over flow copper pipe. All I can say is I will not use them again! Back to the plumber, something was smelling fishy about his quote and so I called and questioned this plumber. His response was "Well, I will need to flush out the gas line and calibrate your water pressure...upgrade to the new California safety quote...put in earthquake straps...install new vent line since the new water heater nowaday don't use the old vent line!". I was not convinces so I started to Google for good local contractor and AMERICAN CASTLES (Mike Tay is the owner) came up from Thumtack along with few others from other websites. I contacted them and they came in and provided me quotes. Mike was the last one I contacted. He arrived within 30min. He checked out the damages and explained to me what needs to get done sequentially to get everything back in proper operation for my tenants. Mike is very knowledgeable and very patient in explaining things. I told him what the plumber had said, he laughed and told me the whole thing was a rip off and a scam! Another crock of bull**** and advised me against it. He told me to call my insurance company to inquire about using other plumber. Sure enough I was offered the "cash out" option which I didn't even know was available. I took that option and went with Mike for the repair. Mike knows how important it is for my tenants to get the hot water running again once the water damage restoration company completed the clean up/dry out the area (took 1 week). As soon as that company removed their equipment, Mike had his crew come in the next day (Saturday) to repair the garage dry wall and finished the installation of the new water heater and brought it up to code on safety on Sunday! He even added the water pan and installed drain pipe for me. I didn't even know such a thing exists (talk about quality...he treats it like repairing his own home!). The best part is his charge for the whole job including new water heater, earthquake straps, valve, drain pan, vent and new connection is far way less than what that plumber was going to charge me. I loved the fact he took the time to show me how things should be done up to code and what works for my situation instead of just giving a price and walking away. He did an awesome job! Unfortunately my landlord insurance's deductible was so high, I asked Mike to give me a quote for fixing the damage in the garage and inside the house. Mike's quote was very competitive and the best part is he is always willing to work with me knowing my situation (thx Mike). My bathroom paint is 16 years old so it was a challenge to match the paint for the new wall. After only quoting me for painting a small wall inside the bathroom, Mike decided on his own to paint the entire bathroom without charging for it. Now that what I call TAKING PRIDE IN YOUR WORK AND STICKING TO YOUR WORD!!! My summary is, Mike successfully completed the entire job and installation in four days. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone and will definitely be using and referring him to everyone I know.
Martin and his team were referred to us. We closed on Friday, we fumigated over the weekend, and they had our 1200sq ft house apart Monday morning. Here is what they did in only five weeks: Exterior: -Repaired the fascia -Replaced my window trim on all windows, and two of my windows entirely. -Painted the exterior -Poured a patio -Replaced a large side gate -Built and painted a picket fence -Installed a mailbox -Helped me assemble my patio furniture in their down time -Hauled away two truckloads of garbage from the yard and garage that the prior tenants left -Trimmed the trees to keep the off the roof -Patched the roof -took care of the loose wireing in the garage Interior: -Scraped all ceilings -Ripped out all flooring -Ripped out the tub and shower -Ripped out the vanities -Ripped out the toilets -Ripped out all base boards -Retextured the walls and ceiling -Build two doorways -Built a small wall to fix the hall -Reinstalled the bathrooms with new fixtures -Replaced all the ceiling fans -Replaced two doors to the exterior -stripped my sliding glass door of that terrible fogging-effect plastic - hung fresh bedroom closet doors -new carpet in two rooms -new laminate in the living room, office, hall -new vinyl in the kitchen and bathrooms -new baseboards -new kitchen cabnet with counter to match the others -re hung kitchen cabinets to match the other side (they were low) -full paint -smoke detectors -fire extinguishers -re-wired my unsafe attic -new switches and plates Basically, They made it turn-key, from a total dump. And they stayed within my budget. But what will always stay with me is the sense of deep care and respect I felt every step of the way. Our first experience. Never were we blown off of treated like novices. Every time I share pricing with friends who have had work done on their homes, their eyes bug out at how wonderful our pricing was! They always went above and beyond. Like, meeting other people (the surveyer, the city for utilities, the garage door guy, the Apliance delivery guy) so that I didn't have to take work off. Like lending a hand with our last few boxes when we were moving in. Like staying around until my husband made it home on they day he got lost so that I wouldn't be alone in a new neighborhood after dark. Like working weekends to get it done. Like touching base every day with updates. Like helping me spray my yard with flea killer. Like always having a good laugh ready to share. Like answering my stupid "what-the-heck-is-this" calls weeks later when something native to the neighborhood would turn up (mostly bugs). I am so grateful. Also, It's been months and nothing has gone wrong. Our life carries on (knock on wood), and we don't think about trivial house stuff because it's all done.
Rami Z, the owner and leader of A to Z construction, embodies the best of a true professional. He takes on your project with your best interests as priority and uses his expertise and the commitment to excel and get the job done right. He asks the relevant questions and listens to you so he knows what your looking for. So after 2 month of seemingly never ending demolition for flood damage involving garage, bathroom, bedroom and half the kitchen we wanted to restore what we had before the flood quickly and without my wife and I having to spend a lot of our time and money. He made himself available after hours on a weekend to take our call and meet with us and see to the damage. He gave us an estimate of the cost and the time that it would take to complete. The next day he gave us a contract and the following day his team was already working. (While other contractors either no showed or told us it would be a week before they could give us an estimate and were late on that too—to be fair the season did have near record rain and cold, but in the meanwhile we were in a drafty house, with family displaced from the bedroom, without use of the kitchen sink. His contract did turn out to be 20-30% less than a couple of others when they finally did come in, and it was his professionalism and ability to ask questions and listen that probably saved us time and money—we got excellent quality work for a good price.). Rami works with our best interest in mind and that saved us time and money several times during the project. For example he discovered that the knobs on the doors left by the demolition team could be used on the new cabinets. When the rain came he added a small segment to the gutter drain outside to keep water away from the house that wasn’t in the contract, he didn’t charge for it, he just did it and he may well have prevented a second flood. That speaks to Rami’s quality of character, I only stopped by a couple of times during the project and met some of the A to Z team. It was obvious they were trustwory and Rami was in charge and taking full responsibility. He listened to our needs. He knew we needed to have use of the kitchen as soon as possible so he put together a temporary plywood counter so we could use the sink while he found granite to match the granite from the others side which had been in style for 40 years and kept the work on the flooring and walling the bedroom. He did find a good match and his team also matched the painting—no one could see that have our kitchen had been demolished. It’s hard to imagine how difficult the job appeared with bear wood beam on the lower half of what had been the wall between the garage and bedroom, the ditch where the toilet had been, bear pipes located the site, beams and dirt floor, smashed granite kitchen countertop. We needed an expert we could trust and that is Rami from A to Z. Ronald from LA
I hired TMC to demo my old fire place that was in the backyard to add a water fountain with beautiful decorative rock and it came out great! I definitely recommend TMC for any kind of cement,rock, wall work.
guy's team is fantastic! guy was very fair and communicative. he did a nice job handling all of the difficulties that come with contracting a residential renovation. i certainly hope to work with guy and co again. note: i will require them to budget an onsite supervisor in the future, to minimize the type of errors that happen on every project, but can be minimized and immediately remedied with consistent supervision.
I highly recommend Orange Air Duct Cleaning Services Solutions. Kevin is very knowledgeable, helpful, and most of all, honest. I would recommend Kevin to my family, friends and clients.
Richard did a fantastic job--I highly recommend his informative, courteous and swift service. We hadn't cleaned our dryer wall vent for several years and he discovered not only combustible lint but water blockage too (2 shop vacs full!). In less than an hour he had our problem solved. Now a full load of clothes take one cycle to dry instead of three...thank you Richard! If you want to reduce your risk of fire, reduce your electricity bill, dry your clothes quickly and support a great local business give Richard a call! His rates are very reasonable.
I would recommend Duct Cleaning Experts Services to anyone. Eli, Ben and I think his name was Rolando were professional and just plain nice people; a real pleasure to work with. Their customer services is second to none.

When my roof collapsed after a fire in my home, La Rocca provided me with options to restore my kitchen and roof. I like the competative pricing, and communication was great. The project managers attention to detail, and my homes unique needs was amazing. I was worried that my homes needs would be to expensive but La Rocca competed for my home.
In 2015 got with Tom to revamp typical fireplace found in homes built if the late 1980's. Gave him free reign to design and create fire place with hearth and mantel. Came out spectacular, his ideas, his workmanship, his prompt completion of the work was best I have ever encountered. Anyone who contracts with Tom will not be disappointed with his quality creations. I definitely plan to retain him again!
April had a big job to do to get us started on our place that needed cleaning 😬. She has passion for her job & great on communication!
I hired Matteo to consult with me on finishes for my house which is being reconstructed after a fire. He spent most of a day with me going over colors and textures that would suit my taste. The whole experience was very positive and helpful. He helped me define what I really want in my space. He didn't tell me what to do -- he helped me see what I want to do.
My Fire Magic built in barbecue was repaired in record time by BBQ Repair Pros when I couldn't even get other repair companies to respond. They were fast, thorough and efficient. Very fair and professional.

Being the hotshot crew of the Fire Department is very difficult, especially under hot and dry weather conditions, and it can be very dangerous at times out on the fireline but yet an adrenaline rush.
