This was my first time ever having to hire a contractor, and I will use Arreola again. I had 3 large sidewalks that needed to be replaced, a patio to put in and a retaining wall that we were looking at replacing. I did my research online as to what to ask potential contractors and what to look out for. We got 4 bids, the lowest being around 12k and the highest around 22k. Arreolas owners Malrie and Carlos came out and spoke to us upfront about any potential permits we may need (none of the other companies even mentioned permits), and all of our options. They drew up a contract complete with a pay schedule so that we would only be paying for the work as it was being done; we were not paying in fractional increments (as other companies had wanted). Their crew showed up on time every day (including Easter, which was not expected but greatly appreciated) and was very professional and friendly. Malrie and Carlos were onsite with the crew each day and they finished before their estimated date and exactly on budget. Any questions I had about the process were answered immediately either by phone or by email. I cannot give a higher recommendation; they were a pleasure to work with, EXTREMELY reasonable and very professional.
