Review by in San Diego, CA
Our backyard was completed about two months ago, and I am still in awe on the job Sarul and his crew performed. After purchasing a new home, we were looking to get ~1200 sqft of hardscape, retaining wall, planter wall, electrical, and drainage installed. I reached out and received literally 15 quotes with some quotes being outrageously high and others being so low I wondered if they knew what they were doing. Luckily though, I found Shawn at IID. Shawn is very professional and extremely knowledgable about his craft. He arrived at our house a few days after I contacted IID, and spent two hours listening to what we exactly wanted and provided some amazing suggestions. After measuring, sketching, and selecting supplies, he gave us a quote right on the spot (completely awesome as I didn't have to wait 2-14 days for a quote like others). Best part, he showed us pictures and examples of every project he has managed. That's right, we didn't just see pictures of "selected" jobs, but pictures of all jobs. The price was also amazing. IID will give you 20% off since they pass the savings of buying directly straight to the consumer. Believe me, their prices are best you can find with the best service and quality. You truly will receive the best bang for your buck. After finalizing the contract, Shawn helped us out with the design to send to our HOA. IID check in on us every few weeks to see if we received approval, and once we did, they immediately started the job. We then had a walk through with Shawn and Sarul (crew manager) to go over the job, and Sarul had a few suggestions as well, which again, were awesome!. Sarul and his crew were amazing what they did as well. Sarul made himself available all of the time and promptly answered any questions. His crew was also very respectful to our house and property, and they cleaned up each and every day. I couldn't be happier. They were able to complete the entire job after 10 days. A few weeks later we noticed some small things (i.e. one small crack paver and one wall cap not glued), BUT after contacting Shawn, Sarul and his crew immediately came over in two days and resolved it (unbelievable service). We receive compliments all of the time, and are still in awe with how our backyard turned out. We weren't planning on doing any more hardscape after this job, but now we are planning a second project in the next 1-2 years and will be reaching out to Shawn to complete it. Thank you everyone at install-it-direct for everything!!! We really appreciate it!!!

Our front and back yard were just completed by Install It Direct - I am not an outdoor person, whatsoever; however, for the first time in years I am excited about spending time outside with my kids and dogs! For Consultation and Design, we met with Emily and instantly hit it off! It's so rare to find people who genuinely love their job and are eager to satisfy their customers in this area and industry - from beginning to end, Emily hit out of the park! She is so knowledgeable, meticulous, and enthusiastic; a true professional who is passionate about her work, her team, and her customers! For Demolition, Construction, and Finishing, we had Rufino's crew who were nothing short of amazing. They were courteous, polite, always on time, and some of the hardest workers I have ever seen. These gentlemen are truly experts at their craft and the work they did to transform our yard was exceptional! I'll never be able to thank them enough! If you're ever in the market - I would highly recommend Emily, Rufino and the rest of their crew!

We hired Install-It-Direct for our backyard remodel project and could not have been happier! Our project manager, Emily Ayala, was fantastic - listening to what we were looking for, putting together a great design and producing beautiful results on time and on budget. The site crew, led by Fernando Alverado, did a great job and kept the worksite organized and accessible. We felt the pricing was fair and are thrilled with our new backyard. We highly recommend Install-It-Direct!

We had such a great experience with Install It Direct and our project manager Emily for our backyard renovation project. We first met Emily with no clear idea of what we wanted other than a modern patio & outdoor kitchen. Emily helped us conceptualize and design something that I know we couldn't have designed alone. We trusted her design aesthetic completely and we appreciated her attention to detail and quick thinking. Using the materials thoughtfully to elevate the space is definitely one of Emily's strengths. The whole process was easy and quick from demo to completion. Andy and his crew were so friendly and finished the huge job in about two weeks. Now we are so stoked to have our dream outdoor entertaining space. We couldn't be happier with our experience working with Emily & Install It Direct!

In preparation for putting in a patio, side walkway, and widening the driveway(all with pavers) we researched many companies and poured over the reviews. We obviously made the right choice because we are very pleased with the quality of work and thrilled with the final product. Crew Fernando H was always on time, friendly, professional, courteous and our toddler enjoyed every second of watching them work. Emily stayed on top of everything, gave regular updates, and delivered what she promised. We highly recommend!

We recently had the pleasure of working with Emily A. of Install it Direct. After weeks of meeting with potential contractors, we met with Emily from 5-7:30 on a Thursday evening. By 6:30 the next morning we had paver samples on our driveway, a quote and a drawing. Impressive! Emily's friendly, informed and proactive style not to mention great pricing made selecting Install it Direct an easy decision. Where other companies had told us we couldn't have the design we wanted, Emily and her professional crews made it happen. Their work was done quickly yet perfectly and we absolutely love our patio, patio cover and walkways! We look forward to a future project together.

Emily and Fernando did a great job at our house. They were professional, high quality and always cleaned up at the end of the day. A contractor that meets their schedule and follows through with commitments. Who knew!

I wanted to beautify my yard to enjoy it more and increase my home value. I needed an extensive upgrade and was very careful choosing a contractor. I had a half dozen quotes done by the highest rated contractors in my area. What impressed me most about Install-It-Direct, and led me to choose Casey Schletz as project manager, was the value I received (i.e. best bang for the buck) and his frequent visits and communication to make sure I was satisfied and the job was done correctly. He cares more than the typical contractor in my experience. I am so pleased with the results and receive compliments and requests for Casey's contact info from neighbors all the time. I'm so happy that I chose Casey and Install-It-Direct.
