    He gave us a bid and we told him I was waiting on other bids and he did not like that. He then told us never mind his bid and told us he did not want our business after all.

    I was in fact very polite and went in great detail explaining the circumstances. painting requests are very popular and extremely competitive. Mr. Quijada's request received only one quote in over 24 hours when they usually get 5 quotes in the first 30 minutes or less. this in itself is very telling of who was upset about the circumstances. this is why we say it must be a good fit for both parties,

    Wants to be paid cash and wants most of his money up front.

    would like to do better for most good folks. however after receiving information regarding the character of an individual at locations of their properties we at times find it unsuitable to do business in any other way. best of luck to all.

    Not good in follow up
    Adrian called and we agreed on price. He requested cash payment. I agreed to make cash payment as long as the work is covered by Thumbtack Liability Insurance. After that he never replied to my multiple message on his phone and as well as Thumbtack message board. Not accepting work is fine but not responding to multiple messages is not acceptable.

    He might do good work - but two stars because he said he would show up on a Friday afternoon, he never came or called...Says he sent a email to our 'company' email-but its the same one that I use for both the business and at home office-nothing there from him...Got the job done with another contractor on Thumbtack that both showed up - and kept in touch...

    I was looking for someone to re-roof my house. He wanted to charge me to bid on the project. Ridiculous!
    Adrian A. May 19, 2015

    We are honest and upfront with anyone regarding our services. Mr. Forest D. specifically requested our services so we messaged back to him detailing that weekends are at a premium because this is when most customers are available. No agreement was made or meeting held or time wasted by anyone. He stated that four other contractors were willing to give him the free estimate he wanted. I hope the best for Mr. Forest D. and his vacation house in the mountains.

    Adrian repaired our balcony that had dry rot. This was not an easy job replacing joists and lifting the whole balcony so water can drain off when it rains. He also laid ceramic tile on our 17 X 10 balcony. He and Mark did and excellent job. Very thorough with attention to the smallest detail. Very polite and overall nice guys. We will use Adrian again when we have the need.

    Terrible experience. This guy wasted so much of my time. He was due to start on a Monday morning (I had worked the week-end to get everything ready to go for my kitchen demo). He contacted me Sunday evening to cancel. He made lots of excuses to justify his deplorable behavior, but, in the end, his actions speak for themselves. I found another contractor that did that job and more, and the work was performed perfectly.
    Adrian A. Apr 2, 2014

    We truly wish you the best in love, life and happiness. It is apparent you are severely lacking all of the above. please consider having a signed written agreement at least before slandering someone. as a lawyer you should know it is in your best interest.

    Adrian was amazing! His attention to detail, pride in excellence, integrity and a tireless work ethic combined to make a beautiful result of painting my Laguna Beach home. We feel like we got a new house that now befits the gorgeous views. I give my unqualified recommendation to Adrian and his associates and plan to utilize his other skiils in my future projects.

    Adrian is a nice guy, showed up as scheduled time. My original request was to change the wires to new copper wires from the old aluminum wires. He was open to discuss options about the job, I decided not to change the wires but replace all the outlets and switches for the whole house. He his charge was reasonable, no trick, no game, did a little extra trouble shooting without additional charge. Easy to work with. Highly recommended. Thanks for the happy business, Adrian.

    Retaining Mr. Arroyo proved to be one of the best experiences. He and his staff are courteous and professional. Adrian is a hard working man. His work is exceptional and his pricing is fair. He was retained to put up a wood fence. The job was a challenge because of working on a hill, tree roots and large river rocks. I am completely satisfied with the end product. I have retained him for further projects. I have recommended his services both to family and friends.

    The job Adrian worked on was hanging two vinyl outside gates, removing cedar shingles from the front of the house around the front door and window, stuccoing the area removing and rebuilding the front door jamb and threshold and tiling the small front porch with saulito tiles. Adrian and his partner were very reliable and hard workers. Adrian spent time doing the quote on the spot and adhered to the quote. When some unanticipated problems arose, like running out of tiles (my fault), he went out of his way to solve the problem, find the correct matching tiles and complete the job. Even after finishing, when the screen door was not hung correctly, he came back the next day and fixed it. Very honest, I could rely on his word and he did good work. His prices are very reasonable. I would definitely hire him again.

    He is absolutely great! The scope of his knowledge was amazing. I needed a gas line, shelves and dog door and "poof", I had them. His communication skills are excellent. I'm hesitant to tell how impressed I am because I have a few more jobs I'd like him to bid on. I have recommended him to my friends and I will recommend him to anyone on thumbtack. He's an A+.
