Boiler and Hot Water Replacement

FIRST - Clear Estimate:

José's estimate was straightforward, detailed, and free of complications. No confusing jargon or contracts, just a precise breakdown of costs. His honesty about potential changes kept unforeseen extras under 10%.

SECOND - Skilled Installation:

José demonstrated passion and skill in handling the intricate heating system installation. With numerous variables, precision and expertise were crucial. His attention to detail turned the job into a true work of art.

THIRD - Code-Compliant Installation:

José emphasized the importance of a code-compliant installation for system longevity, proper warranties, and trouble-free operation. From my perspective, this guarantees a hassle-free experience without contracts, avoiding potential issues with commitment, honoring agreements, and avoiding staggering buy-out fees.

Fantastic service and expertise

I chose to replace a gas stove with electric and needed electrical plug install and gas capping. Jose came in person to check things over and took the time to carefully explain what work was involved. He also respected my decision for switching stoves without question.

He quickly provided a very reasonable quote.
He and his partner arrived on site, took care to ensure all space was protected and went above and beyond - fixing a couple other electrical issues I had.

Jose's integrity and expertise is #1. I will not hesitate to call him for future work and highly recommend him.

Heat and A/C

Just used Jose to install new Heat and Air Conditioning. Also, had him move the duct work and hot water heater to make the room more efficient. They did a fantastic job. Will use them again.

Panel upgrade from 100 to 200 Amp service

Jose and his crew did a great job. His quote was fair considering the amount of work to be done, which was completed quickly and on schedule. His crew swept and vacuumed the work area nicely afterward - which I think says a lot about a contractor. The work itself looks very professional with wires laid out neatly. He and his crew are very friendly and easy to deal with. Unlike some larger contractors, Jose himself is always on site working with his crew.

Jose is very responsive to any questions (even on weekends) and will usually respond within the hour.

I will consider him for future electrical projects and would recommend him to friends and family.

Bathroom Vent Repair

We contacted Jose about an issue with our bathroom vents. Jose is professional, polite and clear about the steps and costs. Communication was great! They investigated the issue, ordered the parts and re-installed everything. They had shoe covers and kept everything tidy. Thank you very much!

Multiple lighting Requests Fulfilled

Jose and his apprentice were very efficient ,courteous, polite, knowledgeable and clean. They put down rubber runners in the work areas snd vacuum up at the conclusion of the work. Most importantly, their work was professionally done. Jose was extremely courteous and easy to work with especially when there was a issue that popped up. He found the most effective way to resolve the problem. I have subsequently used them for additional work and will willingly use them again. I highly recommend their services.

Jose is the problem solver

My AC stopped working and I had 2 different contractors to try to fix it but no luck even after replacing some expensive parts. I called Jose and didnt get my hopes high as I know that my system is a bit complicated. After a thorough diagnosis he and his partner eventually located the broken part inside my compressor. Unlike other tech who just take a quick look then suggest replacing parts, Jose really take the effort to look for the problem down the line. He will be my go-to HVAC tech from now on.
