They literally rescued me. My a/c unit was crashing just when I was expecting visitors. This happened on a Friday. We set up a date for the following week but to keep my house going until the date, Gary sent a couple of his employees to put in a used condenser to hold us. And, that it did. My new Trane a/c was put in the following week. It is the best thing that could have happened to us. I never knew how my "old" a/c was struggling to keep us cool. My bills are now lower and my house is much more comfortable, so much so that I actually sometimes forget that it is summer in Vegas..... (Phyllis Tolidano – 702-478-5545)

Artistic Iron, 387-387-8688:  Recommended by Marty Myers and:
            We had Artistic do an ornamental wrought iron gate at our front entrance some years ago. We had Lowes install a Security door from our patio to the Nevada room recently. Were satisfied with both; it depends on what type of door you want; each company will provide a different solution. I suggest you get a quote from each. (Sheila McCanna 838-1152)
            I had Artistic Iron come up and give me an estimate for nice scroll doors across the patio sliders. I chose a not too ornate one about $1200. Rather than plastic, this would allow me to have my patio doors open for a cross breeze, as I have an iron door on the front. (Barbara Davis)

No job too big or small.  Arnoldo did a job for me, and with my poor eye sight, I accidentally overpaid him $50. He just put the money in his pocket, but the next day he came back to return the $50 bill. He is honest, as well as being skilled and professional. I definitely will use him again, Phyllis Garrison, 702 8698253, 9/3/21

Floor Tile, Laminates and Repair

CLOUD CARPET ONE, 7351 W. Lake Mead/Sales ask for DOUG WILBANKS Cell #702-352-7390: Most important- ask Doug for the installer to be VICENTE. -He really knows his stuff and the whole job quality depends on the knowledge of the installer. I doubt that we could have had a better installer- - - Let me Know if You want to know anything else about the tiles (Ralph Edrich)

LOWE’s – Romeo Lindo @ Charleston & 215 store @ 352-2510:  Laminate is very easy to keep clean -- damp mop with water and a little vinegar/carpeting starts depreciating immediately and becomes worthless over time/laminate holds value and appreciates with time. It’s more expensive than carpeting/ figure $45 per sq. yd. plus a lot of extra charges -- baseboards, repainting, etc. but worth it. Buy commercial grade 12 mm, 25 Yr. warranty, don't buy laminate with underlayment already attached to laminate/ buy separate underlayment -- allows laminate to fit better on uneven slab, softer to walk on, quieter. "Dry Shield" is best underlayment. Lowe's had best price and handled materials, labor, etc. (Ted Starosciak)

It's a great place to buy iron gates and many decorative pieces, but also a place that can take care of your little welding projects. We recommend it highly. (K&E Waldick)

Garage Door
Sun City Garage Doors @ (702-269-9713 (Steve A.):  Recently during a “senior moment” I backed into our garage door and dented the lower panel. We were not able to open the door, so called a local garage door company and a repairman came out and although he could get it back on track and operational, he said the panel could not be replaced or repaired--we would need to buy a new door. A couple of days later, while walking the dog, I saw a truck parked on a nearby street and the driver gave me his card. I called & on 3/1/19 Steve A. came out looked at it and proceeded to bump out the panel and said we didn’t need a new door; but if we decided to, the price he estimated was several hundred dollars less than the other company. I definitely recommend them!  (Gina & Abbott Mosher)

            My eighteen year old garage door opener became intermittent and I called Jeff Dreikosen who explained the differences between openers – chain drive, belt drive, AC motor, DC motor, Time To Close feature (if you forget and drive off with door open), WiFi remote access etc. I pondered my choices and called back and the opener of my choice was installed and operating two hours later for less than others had quoted.

Damian Douglas, 9360 Oxbow Lake Ave., Las Vegas 89149. 702-526-3667:About a week and a half ago, my husband noticed that our garage door had bowed in the middle and wasn’t working properly. i decided to go to Lowe’s to see what they had for plain old garage doorsظآ‚ظآ€عآŸآŒnothing fancyظآ‚ظآ€عآŸآŒno windowsظآ‚ظآ€عآŸآŒjust the same thing as we had now. We went with our measurements, and the salesman took a look and told us that we might be able to replace it for $3500 although it would probably cost about $5000.ظُŸ‰  He said he couldn’t give us an exact price until their estimator came out and measured the door. I paid $38 for the estimator to come out. Since it was going into the New Year’s holiday, he said we’d hear from the estimator right after the holiday.ظُŸ‰  We have a home warranty on our house, so I decided to contact that company and pay the $75 service charge to have them send a company out to give us a second estimate. The man came out, looked at the door and said it couldn’t be fixedظآ‚ظآ€ظآ”but we sort of knew that already. I asked how much a new door, of the same quality, would cost and he began with “7” (I shuddered in fear) and finished up with $700! My husband and I were simply dumbstruck. The contractor thought we were upset that his estimate was too high, so he started to tell us about the quality of the replacement door. I found my voice and asked, “When can you do the job?” Long story short, the door was replaced today and looks great! He took away the old door and reconnected the door opener. Now the only thing left is for the door to be painted to the sub-HOA required color. I got an estimate for that: $250. (Alice Magrane ظآ‚ظآ€ظآ“

BSN Contractor’s LLC, Mark Carles, Owner. 702 592 5571.
I was a stranger in a strange land when I moved to Las Vegas & Sun City several months ago from out of state.  I was in need of many things, from little to big projects, to make the house I bought into “my home.”
I had several less than fair, professional or honest experiences in my past, so am always a bit leery with service workers. 
 Mark turned out to be a friendly, professional, family man, that takes care of business like you’re his family. He & his crew did so many extra things for me, as I kept finding little things not mentioned when I first hired him. He’s licensed, ensured, honest & stands behind his work & the work of his staff.
Everyone in Sun City should put Mark on their speed dial.

Plumbing Suggestions by Residents
Ted Starosciak:

  1.  Anyone who is replacing a gas water heater should also have the special aluminum pan installed under the water heater to capture any leaking water and redirect it onto the garage floor and away from the house. The pan costs about $20 to $25 at Lowe's or Home Depot and is about 3" deep with a hole cut at the top into which a PVC tube is attached and extends to the garage floor. It's a simple "fix" that works great!
  2. I have the Grundfos hot water recirculating pump and have found that it was costing me about $25 per month to keep it on 24/7 -- not good! What I did was to use one of those remote control devices that you use to turn on your outside Christmas lights from inside your house. When I want hot water quickly in my farthest bathroom, I turn it on and have very hot water there in 8 seconds! Works great.
    Sharon Cline:
    How about the “Grundfos Maintenance-free Timer and Thermostatic Control”? It is installed on the water heater and truly gives you instant hot water no matter how far away your sink is. I have one, and I do get instant hot water way in the farthest bathroom. It has a timer on it, so you can leave it on 24/7 or just set it for the time you feel you will be needing it. Just a thought.

I would like to make a recommendation for a business listed on the vendor list.   With the recent rains, there was a crack in our ceiling so we needed a roofer asap.   We called 5 different roofing companies and only one immediately returned our call and came out the next day.   Within a couple days our roof was repaired.   The name of the company is Jose Roof Maintenance LLC.   Jose took pictures before so we could see the problem and pictures after he completed the work.   We were very impressed with his workmanship and his price, which was very reasonable.   His phone number is 702-337-4080 and 702-637-6759.   Hope this helps someone who may need a good roofer.
