Michael D.

Everything they do is perfect. He is excellent and always figures out the best way to do things with no shortcuts. I would highly recommend him. I've used him six times in the last two years while remodeling.

Description of Work
They did electrical work. They moved a switch and I had him put in a plug. They also installed some recessed lighting.

See above detail of the services performed.

Description of Work
I had the company come out to give me a quote for a garage extension with an additional side room and removing & making some walls for my hall bath. The first appointment was rescheduled by the company, but they did show up on time for the reschedule. Both guys were friendly and knowledgeable. They listened to what I wanted to have quoted, made some suggestions and told me I would receive a quote by email. I received the quote about a week later via email. Because of the amounts quoted, my husband is going to do the work himself; he is able, but doesn't have a lot of spare time. The amounts were too expensive for our budget.

When we had an old deck removed, we discovered substantial dry rot in the bottoms of five large redwood posts that support part of an arbor that covers most of our brick patio. When were looking for someone to repair the arbor, Pete Pruitt of A-1 General Contracting was recommended to us by two people who work with general contractors. Pete came out to look the situation over the very day I phoned and came up with two options for repair. After we selected one, he gave us a written estimate and an approximate date for the work. As it turned out, he had an earlier opening and was able to make the repair within a week. He and a helper installed a temporary scaffold to support that portion of the arbor, cut the rotten bottoms off the posts, formed molds for and poured concrete pedestals for the posts, and anchored the posts to the new pedestals. After the concrete set, they removed the molds and scaffold and told us how long we should let the concrete cure before completing the surrounding brick work. The new pedestals and anchors will ensure that the bottoms of the post are not exposed to dirt or water and should prevent the problem from recurring. Pete and his helper cleaned up completely when they were finished and were unfailingly professional and courteous. We felt the price was very fair. We intend to use A-1 General contracting again for other projects.
