Rob and Scott were amazing ... they responded to my call for help within a few hours, and scheduled an appointment the next day. They completed their inspection and had an estimate to us within 24 hours. The work was scheduled and completed on time, within budget, and with a minimum of inconvenience.

Review by Karl R. in Los Gatos, CA
I cannot say enough bad about Scott Ruth and his company. I never knew that the man is apparently retiring and no longer doing contracting when I hired him. We hired him in August of 2017 to do a fairly simple kitchen remodel. The only complication required removing a wall and installing a header. I would say the total job was about 50 man-hours of work start to finish. Scott Ruth is the essence of a "PAPER CONTRACTOR". If you hire Scott, you will get a part-time purchasing agent. There is almost 0 attention to detail...he delegates everything to his subs and spends very little if any time managing your project. It took him 7 months to complete a 50 hour job! His sub-contractors left trash all over my front yard, my back yard and my house. My wife had to interface with the sub-contractors and explain things to them herself since Scott never did. I had to haul away loads of trash myself. A simple under the counter Legrand wiring took 3 months for him to figure out because he never kept a red-lined electrical plan at the job-site and explained things properly to the electrician. Mostly he never did his homework. The wiring wasn't even done the way I wanted it to be done. The man spent most of the 7 months taking vacations (spending my money) whenever we came up on a critical point in our project. The only reason why the project ever got done was my wife and I had to hold Scott's feet to the fire to finish. If you can, find a contractor that does most of the work him/herself and avoid Scott Ruth. The project came out OK, but it took way longer than it should have. A real contractor could have done it in 2 months after all the parts were in.
Response by Ruth Construction: Karl, As you know, we had many issues with the electrical on this project due to the wrong Legrand parts being ordered by your designer. I am sorry you feel this way. We had many great conversations and you or your wife never brought up these feelings with me during the process. In addition we added many change orders to the job which added extensive time to the job: I would love to sit down with you and deal with these complaints in person instead of blindsiding me and my company with these false accusations. My door is open to you 1. Change of electrical panel 2. Fireplace stone 3. waterproofing your leaking windows installed by others incorrectly 4. installing a complicated tile backsplash on your beverage center that took 4 weeks to get (which you ordered)

Project: Install Ceramic or Porcelain Tile
Ruth's team was very professional. Customer focused. They took care of my kitchen from start to finish. They helped me buy required materials or tools from home depot and cleaned the dust. They were punctual, clean and stress-free. I will hire them for the future floor and other projects.

Review by in Fremont, CA
Scott always returned texts or phone calls promptly. I agree with the other reviewers that he listened well, asked questions and tried to thoroughly understand what I wanted. He offered suggestions if he thought they might be useful. When there were unanticipated problems, he worked hard to remedy them quickly. I always felt we were on the same page. I would recommend him enthusiastically.

Scott Ruth was someone I feel I've known all my life. He listened to what I wanted, made good suggestions and did excellent work. His team is wonderful: courteous and dedicated to getting the job done. Very reliable. I am so happy that I plan on having them replace all the flooring in my home.

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.
