San Francisco

Customer Feedback:

Rock And Rose Landscaping

“I love them. We had horrible winds that almost blew over a ‘walking willow’ in my backyard, and they came right out and fixed it for us. The flow between Michael and I just led to this great thing. They do my weekly maintenance, offer great suggestions, and work around your budget. Tish actually calls to see what I need— they don’t just show up out of the blue. You really get taken care of.”

Customer Feedback:

Lightstream Window Cleaning

“We’re very happy with Andy’s window service. He’s really savvy. We have a ton of windows at our home in Montclair, and he figured out a time of day to clean them when the light is just right. We’ve been impressed with how conscientious he is.”

Contra Costa County

Customer Feedback:

McKinley Painting

“McKinley painted the whole exterior of my home. They were extremely careful with everything, especially the plants outside. We have an older home in Berkeley and he was very aware of how to take care of it. He was the most knowledgeable painting contractor we talked to. His workers didn’t play loud music, smoke, or chat. They just got the job done.”

Customer Feedback:

Cal-Pac Roofing

“These people are gold. You just can’t find people like this anymore. I think I’ve referred five or six customers to them since they completed my job. I had a small problem a year later, and they took care of it immediately. The roof is beautiful, and the product is awesome. They put in two sky tunnels, too. Those really are terrific. I put one in the central hallway, and it just opened up the whole house. At night, even the moonlight lights up the house.”
