    I got to this company after interviewing a different one, BCA Construction, based on Home Advisor ratings. I thought I was hiring BCA, but as we were closing the deal passed me on to California Home Solar, telling me it was the same company. I regret not questioning this! I still don't know their business structure. Be careful and don't be like me. Anyway, two words for CA Home Solar as a remodeling company - DISORGANIZED and AMATEURISH. I guess they are mainly a solar company venturing into home remodeling? I eventually fired them, and I wish I had done so sooner. I am a first-time home owner and renovated my 1300 square feet condo -- 2 bathrooms remodeled, all floors replaced, kitchen re-tiled and replaced countertops, lights updated including a new LED system installation, and repainting the condo. The price was 48k without materials. I consider this to be on the expensive end, so I expected them to be competent, professional, and headache-free but the experience was the opposite. Time Management - very poor. Estimated completion was 2 months and 1 week maximum according to them, but by the time we were close to 4 months and the pace still didn't pick up, I decided to fire them. They have very serious staffing issues. On several occasions workers would actually no show. Contractor's favorite fallback line when talking about missed deadlines, "well, construction is dynamic." They were not the cleanest in terms of picking up after themselves and generally did not use blankets or plastic covers. Neighbor was complaining of the dust in the hall, and I was surprised when contractor told me they did not have a vacuum cleaner (like isn't that super basic?). Quality was very inconsistent. Sometimes was okay (floors were good, most of tiling was good) to downright shabby and unacceptable (e.g., wall underneath the vanity was unfinished and exposed the drywall, baseboard under toilet looked like someone used their teeth instead of tools to cut it, among other examples). Contractor was reactive instead of being proactive, was not on top of things and I never felt he was in control of his project, ever. Clearly overstated his abilities. Was often passive-aggressive, sometimes would try to blame me, either subtly or directly, for things that had gone wrong. Had little foresight, poor planning skills (e.g., did not account for height of baseboard and height of side splash touching structures above them, and did not even notice until I saw and pointed it out after the fact; he miscalculated tile requirements repeatedly, causing delays and additional shipping charges; also never mentioned, hence I know he never noticed it before, that an electrical outlet would be in the way of the kitchen backs plash, when I called his attention he said it was because there was a beam behind so he could not move the outlet, if that was the case then why didn't he move it the other direction). Greatly underestimated the complexity of the LED project

    My project was handled quickly and efficiently, which works great with my schedule. I had a great experience, and was thankful to have a company that cared about my home, as much as I did. I would recommend this company to my friends and family, for any service they offer.

    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)
