Angel and his crew made two pillars and four below-ground concrete pylons as footing for a 4-legged gazebo to straddle a circular pavilion in my backyard. His crew also poured a 7’ x 2’ concrete slab in our side yard to function as a grill parking spot. Angel had car trouble the first day, which delayed the start of work to two days later than we had agreed on. His crew spread the work over three evenings, delaying another crew's start date for assembly of the gazebo by two days. The posted rate for Angel's work was $45/hour. When the work was finished, Angel presented me with a bill that would have charged $40 an hour for each of his crew's 5 laborers. Angel may be an engineer worth $45 an hour, but someone digging a hole for concrete does not earn $40 an hour, so we renegotiated. Angel received $45/hour, and each of his workers earned $20/hour. We declined to pay for hours when multiple workers were present, but only one of them was working, since the others were just waiting for Angel to arrive. In addition to wages and materials, we paid $150 for gas. Angel would have spent less on gas, if the work had been concentrated into fewer days, which I would have preferred. The end result is: the anchors are level. The two front pillars have air pockets as large as 0.5" h x 2.5" in the sides, indicating the cement wasn’t packed down well. (I will use filler to get a smooth surface, after which paint will be necessary to hide the filler.) The work started late, was spread over too many days, and the concrete pillars should not have the air pockets they have. On the up side, I appreciated how clean the worksite was when Angel finished. He also gave me a few expert answers to questions I had about other potential concrete projects. Angel is polite and knowledgeable. Even so, it is important to be very specific with your timeline, cost expectations, and aesthetics up front.

My Husband and I had purchased a little over an acre of land in Fallbrook and hired WEST Construction to do the excavation work for our new home site. Despite the fact that our land was extremely rocky and had poor soil conditions, West was able to complete the project early! I was in the process of finalizing paperwork and looking for a contractor to install turf for our side and back yard when I was told that WEST also did turf. I was pleasantly surprised and immediately hired them for the job. We had a little over 2,300 SF of lawn turf installed and they had it completed in 3 days!!! I can’t give enough thanks to the guys in the field for all their hard work and professionalism. I would definitely hire WEST again. Thanks guys for your hard work!

The guys were extremely polite and took extra care in making sure that my landscaping was protected as well as they were very good about containing construction debris to the work area. Also, they left the place cleaner than I imagined it could be. Highly recommended!

Our apartment has never been cleaner! There were a few communication hiccups (understandable with a new business), but Vania and Cherryl were fantastic, friendly, flexible, and determined to do the job right, going far above and beyond my expectations. Happy to work with them, and would hire again.

Baldemar and his crew from 4 Trees Landscaping and Tree Services, helped remove a forty foot Elm tree and trimmed two 100 foot Redwood trees, at Givmar Precision Machining, in Mountain View. They started about 9:30 AM and was done by about 3:00 PM. They got the Elm down quickly and were trimming the Redwood trees with in two hours. The clean up took the longest, but they were waiting for the wood chipper to get to our facility. They chipped everything and blew all the sawdust off our parking lot. I would recommend Baldemar and his team to any of my friends that need tree services. Job well done Baldemar!

It was my lucky day finding Zeus online... The kitchen countertops set up by the previous owner were ugly and unstable in places, and I needed them redone before visitors arrived. I liked their portfolio, i just hoped their work stood up to it, and quick... Well it sure did! Jesse immediately sourced a great-looking, durable and surprisingly inexpensive replacement. The finish is modern and practical, and it really transforms the kitchen. I get so many compliments! Their attention to detail is commendable, especially given how darn fast these guys work. Jesse and his crew did this in a few hours, even carving a new custom handle treatment for the lower cabinet doors. When he offered to take on raising the stovetop hood next (previous owner was a midget!) I trusted him that they wouldn't still be wrestling with it days later when those guests were due. Again, so glad I did. They did it in a day, re-wiring and everything. No more bumping my head when I look into my cooking pots! Next up, they're building a little studio for me, to be cut into the hillside just below the house... With Jesse's clever design and materials, he's managing to keep this affordable without looking "budget"... I'm excited! I recommend Jesse for his style-conscious, resourceful, and unique remodeling approaches. He and his Zeus team do beautiful work, built to last.
