Many years ago, we decided to model our business around the idea that we would provide a different kind of contracting service. Our Patio Cover business would be one that people could count on for reliability, quality and longevity. That's what we've done, our past customers have experienced that they could count on us, and our future customers have confidence because of our reputation.
I am constantly amazed at what kind of individuals actually get away with calling themselves "patio cover experts", this includes contractors and their employees... That said, in rare cases competent "patio cover experts" do exist and they would also share my opinion about the patio industry throughout Orange County and elsewhere.
My wife Debbie and I started our contracting business in 1980, the same year we were married. That's over 35 years of quality jobs and satisfied customers. While living and working in beautiful Orange County, we have raised two wonderful children, now ages 34 and 35 and raising families of their own also in Orange County.
As in a family, the patio cover business has many challenges. One of my greatest, has always been trying to hire competent patio cover carpenters and installers. We attract the best craftsmen because we take good care of them, plus we train them our way. The main component of a quality job however, is for the patio cover contractor to stay involved in the field-work, and be aware of what's going on.
It's a mistake to assume that all patio cover contractors follow techniques that will allow your patio to last. The reality is that the contractors and workers are pretty much on their own, and faced with a lot of variables that few pay attention to. This is why your patio cover needs attention now.
