I’m a real estate agent and Adolfo is the only person I would ever recommend to my clients. Besides being an amazing human being, he’s very good at what he does. He is responsible and I give his work the highest marks.

We have heard so many horror stories from friends about their contractors. Adolfo is a unicorn. Not only is the quality of his work great, but he is also an impeccable human being. Adolfo is responsible for almost every home project we have done since we moved into our house six years ago. He put a new roof on the house, installed a water heater, replaced the old electrical panel, rebuilt our deck, and built a free-standing laundry room in the backyard. Additionally, two weeks after we bought our house, the plumbing failed and he came in with his team on a Sunday and re-plumbed the house!

We were originally connected through our real estate agent. We called three or four other contractors for comparison, but Adolfo was the only one who showed up on time, was easy to reach and followed up with an estimate when he said he would. His price was also the most reasonable. It turned out that he was also dead on with his estimates. The quote he gave us was always exactly what our total ended up being.

He really cares about his clients. I have seen him go above and beyond for people. I truly can’t say enough good things about him!

We do house flipping and have worked with Adolfo on every single job. He has high standards and wants to do the best work. He is not expensive and he is always on time. We have an architect and we do some design ourselves, but Adolfo also makes suggestions. I have learned over the years to listen to Adolfo or I will regret it. He is always right. He is also a great communicator. We need to have that good communication because of the amount of work we do. We just love him.

I have hired Adolfo four separate times for jobs ranging from roof work on a two-storey Spanish tile home, to appliance work, to plumbing issues that I had thought were related to a leak in the roof. I have hired him on my own home as well as for a client. Adolfo has great communication and he does great work. I couldn’t be happier with him.

We hired Adolfo to convert a garage into an ADU. He came in with the cheapest estimate of the five people we spoke to. He was incredibly fast, had excellent communication and the work was very strong. He was able to accommodate changes and the few times there were small issues he was always happy to make it right. There were no surprises with change orders or extra charges. The job was done on time. And we are happy with the results! I would work with him again.

Adolfo came to us over a decade ago through a friend who is a contractor. Adolfo did a six-figure addition on a house for us and was literally under budget and on time. It was shocking.

Since then he has done two more jobs like that for me. He also rebuilt an entire theater I own in North Hollywood.
Very often, people hire him after they have had trouble with other contractors. I have have gotten so many thank you’s for referring him.

He's a good guy, really honest. He is always my first call when I have to do anything, small or big. He has come through for me over and over.

I have hired him when I had my own architect and I have also hired him with a designer he loves to use. Adolfo is always involved, but he has no ego about it. He is on the scene and helps facilitate. He just wants what is best for the project.

I have nothing but love for Adolfo.
