Project: Build or Install a Concrete Swimming Pool
AO TORRES, was hired to build and install a pool system in our house in Palm Springs. Gerado was the main person who I dealt with, overall he was pleasant man and has good intentions. However is his boss Alex, could be difficult to work with. The project was schedule to be done in less than 2 Months and ended up almost 5 months. One thing I learn in working with construction workers is never let your money get ahead of the job progress. In other words you should be paying them as the job progresses. See what happens is these construction guys will use your funds to fund other projects that have and in the meantime your project is on the back burner. Overall the pool was nicely done but the final cost was 12k more than the original estimate. Other complaints include -Leaving a mess everywhere, trash from men?s lunch, to construction by products -damaging the gate and not fixing it properly, called them several times to fix it. Til this day gate is not working properly. -workers harassing neighbors ( girls in pool) -cheaply placed sliding door alarms -unfinished drain covers Overall B-

Project: Build or Install a Concrete Swimming Pool
WARNING...RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN! As a real estate investor, I have hired and worked with many contractors through the years. Never before have I had such a horrible nightmare experience as I had with Alex Torres. I hired Alex to build a pool and block wall on my property. The following are just a few of the issues I experienced. 1. Work would stop for days after I made each progress payment. 2. Nothing was ever complete after each progress payment. 3. The important thing was missing like shutoff valves, steps in the pool, gates, wall and gates too short for code, self-closing gates not operating to code, pool and wall built on setbacks, blocks in wall badly misaligned and crooked, equipment not working and leaking. 4. Alex refused to provide release waivers and refused to finish the project per contract. 5. Alex employees were reporting to me they weren't getting paid by him and that he was in trouble at another project. I refused to make the final payment until he agreed to complete repairs to equipment and all of his unfinished work. Alex refused to answer my calls and texts and held my project hostage over 3 months. After refusing my requests to complete the project and provide me with an official Release from the California State Contractor Board, he proceeded to file a mechanics lien on my property for several thousand over the actual amount due. This guy is TOTALLY unprofessional, unethical, and a lousy contractor at best. All of the other reviews on here must be paid for because there is simply no better explanation. Save yourself a headache and find someone else!

They did an amazing job! We added additional concrete and the price was very competitive. We would recommend A.O. Torres highly.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
