Alpha Productions, Inc. Review

"Consider a retractable awning before you spend money on a temporary solution. A custom retractable awning is functional, saves energy and looks great."

We were so pleased with Alpha Productions They have lot of integrity. From the time we engaged with Linda, to working with Vatche, it has been nothing but a positive experience. We give them a ten out of tena


West Hollywood - November 15, 2022

The people at Alpha Productions are wonderful! I purchased a condo and there were existing awnings over the terrace that were old and needed to be replaced. I called Alpha Productions because they were the company that had fabricated the original awnings and they had lasted a very long time! When Vatche came out, it put a smile on his face to see the old awnings were still working after all those years even though the frames were rusty and the fabric was old. They had a fabulous choice of fabrics to choose from. Vatche recommended extending the new frame a little so it covered the whole terrace and I was able to get a powder white colored metal for the frame that matches the trim on my windows.

The service was impeccable, the guys were friendly and efficient and they tested the motors to make sure everything was working perfectly.

Alpha is a remarkable company. I could not be more thrilled with them.

Vatche did a beautiful job. We had a really good design meeting. He had an idea for the placement of the awning that I hadn’t considered, and he was completely right. I was able to go see his product installed at another client’s home, and I was impressed both by the quality of the work and by the strength of their recommendation. His workmen were thoroughly professional, and the work area was left clean. The awning has made my patio into a place I use all the time. I am extremely pleased. The awning works perfectly and looks great!

Vatche built me a retractable awning about a year ago. He did a great job. I have a great awning. Vatche is professional. He showed up on time and everything went smoothly. I only have positive things to say and am happy to recommend his company.


Encino - January 2, 2016

Alpha Productions installed awnings for our balcony and second floor as well as for the barbecue area. It's so easy to work with Vatche! He is wonderful. My daughter did some research on the Internet and found Alpha Productions. Vatche came on time and gave me suggestions. He was so professional that right away we said 'We are going with him!' We are really, really happy with him! The quality of his products is excellent. Vatche really knows what he is doing. I would recommend Alpha Productions absolutely without hesitation. My daughter wanted to install some awnings and I said, 'Use Vatche—no one else!'

Alpha Productions installed a retractable awning over our trellis. We have a brand new house and I was concerned about drilling into our exterior. But the installers were meticulous, conscientious and clean as well as being professional and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend them.

I heard about Alpha Productions from friends who had worked with them and loved them. I told them what I wanted and they executed the job perfectly with no heartburn or headaches for me. They were cordial, clean and did a great job of installing a high-quality product. My house is so much cooler now. I would absolutely use Alpha again. I got a lot of bang for my buck.


Pacific Palisades - October 7, 2013

I have large, west-facing windows on my house, and the interior of my house would get pummeled with sunlight and was about ten degrees warmer inside than outside. In the summer it would get very stagnant. My contractor recommended Alpha Productions as he had had a great experience with them. They installed rolling screens that you can see through and let in air but block the sun's UV rays. They work beautifully and Vatche was so knowledgeable and really helped guide me in my choice of materials and did a great installation.

While Vatche was at my house, he noticed our patio, which also gets a lot of sun. I was initially opposed to an awning because I had a preconceived notion that they were tacky. My wife and I thought we might install a sailcloth, but Vatche showed me the awning samples and explained what he could do with them. He worked with me and we designed a huge awning that not only compliments the design of my modern home, but has created a whole other room in our house for us to use. Now my family can enjoy being outside all the time.

I often get on my soapbox about how we've become such a serviceless society. Its a shame we are blown away when we get good service, when it should be the opposite, it doesn't make any sense. Alpha Productions goes against my theory. I would give Alpha Productions an A ++ for service and I've referred them to a number of people. There's real pride in the company and that's rare these days—Vatche even invited me down to his facility to see where they make the awnings.

Everyone who works for Alpha is awesome, from Linda in the office to Pablo their electrician, and the follow-up is great. When I had a problem with an outlet four months after installation, I emailed them and got a response within twenty minutes and they were out the same day to fix the problem. There are a lot of people who have worked on my house, and I don't remember who a lot of them are, but I will always remember and recommend Alpha Productions.

This was one of the best experiences with a contractor. They were courteous, punctual, knowledgeable, responsive to phone calls, and professional.

I moved into my house two years ago and have dealt with numerous companies during my remodel—and I was disappointed with almost all of them. Alpha Productions is the only company that stood out that I would be thrilled to recommend.

They installed three different awnings on my house, including a huge awning that made our outdoor patio into an indoor room. They gave me ideas for what type of awning to use and offered a selection of fabrics. They offer a high-end product and I opted to use high-end materials, so it wasn't cheap, but their wide range of materials allow for flexible pricing.

The quality of work was above my expectations and the customer service was great. They showed up when they said they would, did the work and the work was clean and professional. I decided later I wanted something changed and they came right back and fixed it.

Silva and her brother are both professional and know their product. They have both stood out in my mind from of two years of dealing with people. A consumer experience this good shouldn't be unusual, but unfortunately it is. You should definitely use this company.

The awnings on our building had been damaged when they had been left open in the rain, so I called Alpha because they had installed them originally. The woman who took my call gave me an absolutely precise estimate. The repairmen came on time and did a superb job and explained the process to me. They were clearly proud of their work, showing me what they had done and how they did it. They have real respect for their customer and treated me like a sentient being. I really believe in this company.

Vatche did a good job! His work is unbelievable! He put in an awning at my restaurant and at my home. My partner at the restaurant on Sunset used him and told me about him. I tried other companies but Alpha Productions is a traditional company. The father started it and is still working there. They do an incredible job. It was very important to me that they started early, finished early and cleaned up beautifully. From start to finish I am very impressed with them. And I am so happy with my patio!

North Hills - December 6, 2010

My awning was a surprise gift from my mother so it was very hush-hush until Vatche showed up. I never even knew this kind of thing existed, so convenient and practical. Vatche has a fast, friendly crew. They answered any and all questions I had. We had a huge wind a few days after the awning was installed and they came back out to readjust everything. Alpha Productions is friendly and responsive—always there for you, to guide and advise you.

West Los Angeles - November 29, 2010

We had an existing wooden patio structure and Alpha Productions added an awning on one side to extend it and another awning on the top, which rolled out to create even more shade. It is the best thing ever! We met Vatche in the showroom and then he came out himself for the estimate, which was nice. I like that his father invented all these cool things in their factory. Everyone we came in contact with was very nice, from the person who answers the phone to his entire crew. They were always on time and finished the job in a shorter time than they estimated.

Malibu - November 8, 2010

Vatche is fabulous! He designed solutions to a space and sun problem. It was so right, it worked out better than I could have imagined! My awnings are beyond fabulous. My patio is now one of the nicest rooms in my house. It is by far the best thing I have ever done for myself and for the value of my house. I have added a large square footage of room to my home at minimal cost. Vatche was extraordinarily responsive to my every need. From Linda in the office, to his entire crew, Alpha Productions is top notch and five star!

Hollywood - October 14, 2009

The company speaks for itself. For 50 years they have been making this product. Vatche’s father is a great person. He brought a lot to the company in the formative years. Vatche is continuing in the legacy of his father, making an incredible product without any competition. They made the custom awnings for my restaurant. Their pricing is reasonable.

Calabassas - October 5, 2009

Alpha did a great job on our awnings and pergolas. They have worked on two of my houses now and always did a fantastic job. The customer service is very good. Vatche is a bright guy and has a nice personality. He gave me what I feel is a good deal. His guys were good and always on time. They did everything right which is extremely unusual for a contractor. Very reliable.

Alpha fabricated a retractable awning for us that extends over a trellis. The awning looks wonderful! We have parties under it. We can choose to have it open, retract it partway or have it closed, depending on the weather. Vatche was very accommodating. Everything about that company is terrific! They are very professional, personable and on time. The pricing was very fair. We have referred them to many people.

Pacific Palisades - September 24, 2009

Alpha made the awning for a long patio that runs the back of my house. When I have the awning out, I extend the livable portion of my house by an entire room. It is a beautiful place to sit. The awning itself is easy to work—I just push a button. Alpha gave me excellent customer service. They were on time. Vatche came by to make sure everything was as it should be. The price was good and he stayed with the quoted price. It was way cheaper than a home addition! And now I can open up the house when it is sunny—all the windows and drapes. Vatche was always on time, easy to work with and attentive. He took the measurements and made no mistakes.

Hancock Park - September 6, 2009

My interactions with Alpha Productions have all been very positive. They delivered at the price quoted, on time and rose to the occasion. They did a very custom awning system to cover a long, ridged skylight on my 1920’s house. It was important to me to have the awning keep with the style of the house. I really pushed the envelope. Vatche is an earnest, hard-working, young man. He was intrigued by the challenge and rose to it. The lead fabricator, Jack, was terrific! With Vatche’s backing and encouragement, Jack came to the house multiple times to tweak the awning so it was perfect. I’m not an easy person to satisfy. Alpha went over and above to make the paint look like metal with a particular sprayer. They disassembled the awning, painted it and reassembled it. Alpha is one of the few contractors I have used in LA who was terrific.
