I contacted Rudy Acosta prior to purchasing a house because I needed someone to assess the irrigation system and I had heard that Rudy is the best in town. Rudy made a detailed inventory of all the leaks and problems in the system and gave me a realistic quote for the work. Six weeks later, after I closed, he returned to review and finalize the proposal. As we iterated over the work to be completed over the following six days, he remained very responsive to SMS and e-mail concerns. He provided me with contact information for two prior customers, and when I called them they both indicated that his work is excellent and that they would hire him again (their stories are not found on this site). Over the next three days, Rudy repaired and replaced many hoses and emitters, replaced two valves and installed a new one, installed and programmed a new irrigation timer, installed a Pressure Regulator to reduce our residential water pressure at the main, and answered my many questions in an engaged and respectful way. The work came in slightly over the initial bid and took a half-day longer than anticipated, but this was to be expected as he was repairing a system that had clearly been neglected for years. It was not necessary for me to trust his judgment as he explained all of the decisions carefully. I would hire him again.
