New heating system

Jose and his team excellent! Local company that showed up at appointed times to meet and install new heating system. I chose him because he was innovative re no drain in furnace area and challenging venting required. His price the best considering work involved. He left basement spotless. I asked for wheel valve from old boiler and he remembered to remove it for me. I will be using Building Ideas for annual maintenance knowing that I will be dealing directly with the company owner.

Extra power outlets and Coax Outlet

Jose and his apprentice came to our house and installed a couple of power outlets and relocated our Coax outlet because rogers wont do it. Jose did a fantastic job and paid attention to all of the details I gave him. They also did an amazing job cleaning up after they finished working. I will definitely hire them again for another project :-)

Old fashioned style service and quality

Jose and his partner are a pleasure to work with. They are clean, respectful, and explain what needs to be done in detail.

Our job included a very awkward light installation that some other companies did not even bother quoting on. In addition, there were special parts needed for a second job that Jose ordered and came back with in short order.

Jose lives up to the high reviews given to him on this site. Thank you Jose!

Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2: Electrical Wiring

Jose provided the quote and was also the person who did the work. We communicated via email in a timely manner. He did arrive a few minutes late but I did appreciate him explaining why (accident on the highway).
Jose was able to figure out the best & most cost efficient manner to get an electrical hook-up working for the hardwired Ring Video Doorbel Pro 2.
This cost excludes installation of the video doorbell.
We liked how Jose & his helper had booties to wear while they were indoors.

Furnace replacement

The Fan from my vet old furnace stopped working and I was referred to Jose, the owner of Building Ideas.
When I called him and explained the issue and urgency, he found a time same day to come look at it. He exhausted all possible options to bring the blower back to life, but unfortunately it was blown already. He recommended me to change the furnace (35yr old) as the cost of the blower would be a third of the price. He could've mentioned to change the AC as it is old, however he mentioned there's still life on it and I should not do that now.
He gave me a very good price for the new furnace, he explained in detail what he was going to do, and he installed the furnace within the same week, performing an outstanding, clean, and professional installation

Clear communication and transparent

We had been having problems with our power flickering and were worried that there might be issues with our homes electrical. The team came out and did a very complete assessment of the voltage and circuits in the house. Additionally, they were able to quickly and accurately troubleshoot another issue. Would definitely hire again for any future projects.

Outdoor pot lights and LED house number and fireplace repair

Jose was very professional to deal with throughout and really knows his stuff. I have vaulted ceilings that required a lot of extra work for pot light installation as they had to go through my ceilings rather than the attic. They did their best to minimize the cuts and were very neat and tidy thoughout. I also had an issue with my fireplace while he was here and he was able to help with that and an outside LED sign. Was impresses me about him is his ability and confidence to do a complicated installation. He knows what he is doing. Others I spoke to just want the easy job going through an attic on one switch. He was also very fair on the price of the work and stands behind it. I would highly recommend him and would be happy to provide a reference in case anyone wants one and show you what he did for me. Really nice, honest guy.
