Eagle Rock - November 10, 2022

I live in hilly area and a lot of dirt was falling and accumulated behind a small, old retaining wall in my yard. I saw Alberto in the Neighbor2Neighbor book and thought about calling him. Then I was out walking the dogs and saw the nice fence my neighbor was getting done. She said Alberto was doing the work! I called him and he removed my old wall, moved the dirt and built a new wooden retaining wall. I’m very happy with his work and I am going to continue to do business with him.

My landlord hires Alberto to do repairs on the house I rent. Alberto is very pleasant, kind and professional. As a woman I appreciate how respectful he is. He’s also very communicative about timing and works around my schedule. I have no complaints—he’s really good at his job and he’s a nice person to have around.

Everything Alberto Arevalo does is done well. Last year, he did an excellent job sealing the basement in my home – no more rodent problems and the area now stays warm in the winter. This year, he constructed a beautiful six-foot tall by thirty-foot long retaining wall. He also created a swale for drainage alongside my house. He will be coming back to work on another retaining wall soon. In addition to fair pricing and high-quality work, Alberto is pleasant, easy going and always quick to respond to any communications. I’m happy to recommend his company to others.


Los Angeles - March 20, 2020

My wife and I hired Alberto to replace an aging patio roof that was old rusting galvanized steel and some rotting wooden beams. Alberto worked with Nacho to tear down and rebuild the structure with wood and palram suntuf polycarbonate sheets on top. Due to incorrect installation and misalignment of the poly carbonate, from the beginning, we had problems with rain and leaking water through the structure (where the old one which stood for 30 years still did not leak). After only six months, we found out during a windstorm that Alberto had COMPLETELY neglected to attach the structure to its front support beam which allowed the wind to blow the entire structure up onto our house's roof. This destroyed the structure, knocked out our electrical main, and also damaged a section of the new roof we recently had completed. Costing thousands of dollars to fix, Alberto agreed to reimburse my wife and I, over time for the cost of building the structure. Ultimately, he only paid us $600 in compensation until he stopped responding to our phone calls and texts. People have the right to know about this incident so they don't get stuck in a similar situation after hiring Alberto.

Alberto did a beautiful job remodeling my garage into a studio space, laying hardwood floors, painting and adding shelving. He's very thorough and timely and you can tell he takes a lot of pride in his work - I would also recommend him for kitchen and bathroom remodeling too - he did immaculate tile work for a friend's bathroom, which is how I found him!

I have been recommending Alberto to people I know who need work done. My job was done as quoted and on a timely basis. I have an old house and he did a myriad of things for me. At the time, I was gone a lot so I couldn’t oversee everything, but I trusted him because he knows what he was doing. I felt confident in not having to check in all the time. He’s easy to get a hold of—if I texted or called he would call me right back. I feel very comfortable with Alberto.


Silverlake - December 9, 2016

I own property with tenants and I’m always looking for handymen. After he was referred to me, Alberto took a look at the job and gave me a price. It was not an hourly rate, but a set fee, which he stuck to. He was clean, polite and punctual. He has done lots of little odd jobs for me: replacing a glass in a window, painting, plastering. And he cleans up after himself. His pricing is not cheapest, but not the most expensive either. I’m big on writing lists. I went through the property with my list and told him all the little things that needed to be done. He also had his own pad and pen and took notes. He’s very organized and I was pleased to see at the end that he had done everything on my list down to the last little screw and spot of paint, without my having to go over it twice! I’ve worked with a lot of handymen and they aren’t often that reliable or organized. Some people have got it and some don’t. Alberto has been back twice now and I will use him again.

I would highly recommend Alberto. The quality of his work is excellent. We get a lot of compliments from people who see his work. Alberto has done things like install tile and wood flooring, some painting and put up moulding. He is very reliable and reasonably priced. He always lets us know what something will cost before he does it and there are never any surprises. He is honest, he’s always on time and I just like him. It’s all good!

Alberto is great. He is always easy to reach. He has done some painting and tiling and other small jobs around our place. I have referred him to lots of coworkers and friends. He was awesome. Even my kids love him!


Highland Park - December 1, 2016

Alberto does a great job and is easy to work with. I usually just text him and he responds promptly. He has done a lot of different work for us. He gives us an estimate and always sticks to it. He is courteous and totally trustworthy. I have even left him alone in the house when he is working. His pricing is excellent. He is respectful of the house—he always wipes his feet before entering and picks up after himself. It doesn’t look like he has even been there when he leaves. I have referred Alberto to so many people, always with good results.

Alberto is a very nice, reliable person. He does a lot of things for me. He has worked for me for almost ten years. He takes care of things for my tenants in my apartment buildings. He always fixes it right away so the tenant is satisfied. He also works at my house. I have recommended him to my friends when they need work done. He comes on time and when he finishes he always cleans up. If I ever need any follow-up, I just call him and he comes right back.
