If I could give negative or zero stars, I would. Find another contractor, no run, they are horrible and completely unprofessional!! Here's our story: In 2016 a salesman named Joshua knocked on our door, claiming to have a fabulous product that could reduce our energy costs by up to 40%. Well of course this peeked our interest, so my husband invited him in. The product he claimed was so great was Tex-cote. So it was sold to us under the H.E.R.O. program because of the so called energy efficiency. Under the HERO program (SCAM PROGRAM) the contractor is paid by the federal government after the work is complete. You pay the cost in your property taxes each month, until the amount is paid in full, allowing you to right off those taxes on your federal income taxes. There was no money upfront. They would remove all the old stucco and replace with this wonder product called Tex-cote, in which Joshua stated this product consisted of thousands of glass particles in the paint and when the sun hit the paint, the glass particles would defect the sun rays not allowing any heat to be absorb into the wall, thus reducing your energy costs. Sounds great huh??? Their crew showed up, blasted all the old stucco, applied the primer, then the "wonder" paint Tex-cote. This process took a several weeks. I loved the new color and trim of our house. But noticed there was not a significant reduction in our utilities costs. Then 3 months after completion of the project, the stucco was peeling and lifting, and left a large crack in the wall. My husband called their foreman a couple of times and left and message and the call was never returned. Months went by because I wanted to see if my utilities would see a change. I called the utility company and asked for the previous 12 months before the application of Tex-cote and the 12 months after. Well to my surprise, there was a increase in my bill 7 out of the 12 months. There clearly was no change, but an increase. Not seeing a change in my utility bill and being blown off by the foreman, we decided to file a complaint with the California Contractors Board. It took filing a complaint that got their attention and we were able to finally meet the owner of California Showcase, Brian Jones. Him, his foreman, and the office manager made an appointment to come see the crack, and immediately Brian Jones starts playing the blame game. He states, "whoever installed the window did not install it correctly," also stating, "the window is bowed." After paying close to $24,000 for a glorified paint job, you would think Mr. Jones would do whatever possible to make sure he had a satisfied customer. But NO!! Then the foreman walks over to the other side of house and states the stucco is cracking in another area where a new window was installed. It was a crack that you could barely see and after having 2 different reputable general contractors look at it they both stated it is going to crack because its a "cold joint." But Mr. Jones in his arrogance again states "you had butchers work on your house." My husband is very upset at this point and raises his voice, and Jones states, "I won't stand here and get yelled at," and storms off and ends up on our driveway. My husband still upset continues to raise is voice, and Jones states, "you yell at me again, its going to get ugly." Really, so unprofessional, what Mr. Jones didn't realize is my husband is a former Marine and martial artist, so if anything was going to get ugly it would have been Brian Jones' face. You challenge customers to a physical altercation, Brian Jones is a JERK!! The 2 other contractors we spoke with stated the Tex-cote is a joke and they would never use it. Another paint contractor we also spoke with stated if there were millions glass particles in the paint, it would eventually clog up the sprayers. If there was a issue about the installation of the windows, why was it not addressed in the beginning?
