As consumers ourselves, my wife Debbie and I are tired of contractors falling far short of what they promise when they’ve worked on our house in the past. Every contractor says “they're the best”, but too often the results are disappointing. This is a common experience for many homeowners.
Many years ago, we decided to model our business around the idea that we would provide a different kind of contracting service. Our Pergola/ 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.
We are a Professional Licensed General Contractor, established in 1980. Lic #452151 Bonded and insured, but more than that, we surpass the Irvine Pergola/Patio Cover industry standards by far. As an innovator with an engineering background I consider the techniques that we have developed, as unrivaled anywhere.
At Blue Knight Pergola/Patio Covers, we do not follow basic industry standards, we exceed them. If the average Irvine homeowner only knew what goes on behind the scenes in the patio cover industry, they would be disheartened to put it mildly. I am constantly amazed at what kind of individuals actually get away with calling themselves "Patio Cover Experts", this includes contractors and their employees alike... That said, competent "Patio Cover Experts" do exist and they would also share my opinion.
My wife Debbie and I started our Pergola/Patio Cover business in 1980, the same year that we were married. That's 4 decades of quality jobs and over 2000+ satisfied customers. While being involved in the beautiful Irvine communities, we have raised two wonderful children, now raising families of their own nearby. And thus, the cycle continues...
As in a family, the Pergola/Patio Cover business has many challenges. My greatest challenge by far, has always been trying to find skilled carpenters. That is why we’ve remained a small business with only a handful of carpenters who meet our standards. A small company like ours does have its advantages. It makes it easier for the contractor to stay involved in the field, and be aware of what's going on. That is what I do. I love to get outdoors and work with these guys!
It's a mistake to assume that all Pergola/Patio Cover contractors follow the same techniques. 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. At Blue Knight, you will get true quality craftsmen (as defined by us), and without the baggage of poor industry techniques.
We will prove that you made the right decision throughout the job and not just during a sales pitch.
