Dear Ralph,

Many thanks for your letter.

We could not be happier with the results of your contracting services. Simply stated, your work was consistently of the highest quality, a fact which we appreciate more each day. Because our renovation turned out to be more complex than originally anticipated, we experienced firsthand your excellent analytical and problem – solving abilities, as well as the various innovative design changes which you made to the original plans. We especially want to commend your imaginative design and execution of the outdoor stairs. They are both elegant and extremely user friendly.

Throughout the job, we particularly valued how effectively and respectfully you interacted with each and every person you encountered: all the sub contractors and workers, our family …

Dear Ralph,

When I was at a loss to find just the right contractor to work on my house in the Oakland hills, my dear friend (and plumber) suggested Ralph Hill. After a brief discussion with Ralph, I engaged him on the spot, and was absolutely delighted with the results.

I have had extensive experience in building and rehabbing residential units in Oakland, and Ashland. My partner and I do a lot of the work. Therefore we know what good work – and good contractors and subs are. This particular house was difficult to work on because: (1) I had drawn the plans – there were no formal “specs” and, (2) it was an owner builder house, well-built but unusual, including walls that ran in and out of plumb, and floors that did the same in the horizontal plane…

Dear Ralph,

I have to send you this enthusiastic letter for taking care of a problem that I thought I could not afford. I want to thank you for your honesty, and maturity in dealing with a rattled client, as well as the quality of your work. The basement did not flood during one of the worst rainy seasons we have had in years! The retaining wall and storage area, the seismic work, the beautiful flagstone patio, and all the rest was done to perfection and I adore you and your crew for it all.

The friends I have recommended you to have all told me what a pleasure it was to work with you and your crew. I will continue to pass your name along whenever the opportunity arises.

You have a wonderful eye for details, and a great work ethic. Thank you and thank you again!
