Excellent communication and dedication to his craft. James helped me out and worked with me like very few companies do these days. I am an out of state owner. I put complete trust and faith in ENC s work.

James is a pro. If you could see what he did for our pool you would understand why I say this. Our pool was devastated by a hurricane in 1918. The liner was ripped by branches and the water was like pea soup. Debris had accumulated in the pool and we tried other people to fix it but they just took our money and ran. When James promptly showed up to take a look he said he was going to take of this and fix what the other guys did (they had actually made it worse). He fixed the collapsed walls, replace the liner expertly, and got it going for us. Now we are looking forward to enjoying our pool this season for first time in years. I think James is the best. We also hired hime to maintain and service our pool. Very trustworthy and skilled.

4.0 Christopher B. Jacksonville, NC

The quality of the work was very good but the cost for what turned out to be only a few hours of work seems a bit high.

5.0 Elizabeth G. Hampstead, NC

James is very polite, conscientious and skilled. We are very pleased with every aspect of the work he completed and what could have been a stressful experience was a breeze.

5.0 Brett B. Emerald Isle, NC

We retained James Bruns of ENC Solar Works to evaluate the condition of our pool as the wall began to lean on one side. After his evaluation, we decided to have James take down and remove the pool. He completed this job and removed all of the materials of the old pool. Once the pool was down, we discovered the reason for the leaning as the bottom strapping holding the side walls were corroded and coming apart in different locations. With Jamesâ vast knowledge of pools, he was very helpful in helping us select a replacement pool and all accessories that we would need. We ordered the pool and all the accessories. We contacted James and arranged to have the pool installed. Along the way there were some ups and downs including Hurricane Florence. Through it all James handled the matter in a professional manner. We are so pleased that we were able to find an individual with skill, knowledge and the professional integrity displayed by James. We now have a beautiful pool to enjoy, thanks to him. We would highly recommend James Bruns if you should need the services he offers.

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.
