Many years ago, we decided to model our business around the idea that we would provide a different kind of contracting service. Our Patio Cover business would be one that people could count on for reliability, quality and longevity. That's what we've done, our past customers have experienced that they could count on us, and our future customers have confidence because of our reputation.
I am constantly amazed at what kind of individuals actually get away with calling themselves "patio cover experts", this includes contractors and their employees... That said, in rare cases competent "patio cover experts" do exist and they would also share my opinion.
My wife Debbie and I started our patio cover business in 1980, the same year we were married. That's almost 4 decades of quality jobs and satisfied customers. While living and working in beautiful Irvine, we have raised two wonderful children, now raising families of their own also in Irvine. And thus the cycle continues...
As in a family, the patio cover business has many challenges. One of my greatest, has always been trying to hire skilled carpenters and installers. We attract the best craftsmen because we take good care of them, and train them from the ground up with ur original techniques. The main component of a quality job however, is for the patio cover contractor to stay involved in the field, and be aware of what's going on.
It's a mistake to assume that all patio cover contractors follow techniques that will allow your patio to last. The reality is that the contractors and workers are pretty much on their own, and faced with a lot of variables that few pay attention to. This is why your patio cover needs attention now.
