SunCraftsmen Solar Highly Recommended

John Gallo and SunCraftsmen Solar provided excellent advice, a competitive quote, expert installation, and responsive follow up. We installed a large system on our ranch in Santa Clarita and I am very happy that John was the installer. I highly recommend SunCraftsmen Solar. I might add that John and his crew were meticulously tidy, aesthetically sensitive, and — they are local! Many thanks. DB

Suncraftsman made solar panel installation simple!

I first got interested in solar panel installation from Solar City. All I was interested is to know how much it cost but it took weeks to schedule an appointment. And then takes forever to get the the actual estimate. The whole process was very complicated and the salesman was pushing us to rent the system which we had no interest in. After various online search & bumping my head into those weird sales man, eventually I found EnergSage. John from SunCraftsmen did a fair bid on my house for the solar installation. John was very quick and responsive to reply all my messages. . He answered all my questions in detail and quickly. Of course I scheduled a meeting with John and he was able to answer each of the questions from me & my wife. The whole process is very transparent, there's no crazy contract with hidden clauses. We immediately felt that John was honest and trustworthy. And it turns out we were right. John finished our project very quickly and on-time. We had some issue with our funding that we had to delay couple days and John was totally fine with it and didn't give us any hard time. Our solar panel system was installed back in Dec of 2015. And we are very happy with the result and the whole installation process. John from Suncraftsman really made solar panel installation simple!

I received 7 quotations through EnergySage and 2 outside. John Gallo's quotation was the best and his proposal the most thorough. He proposed a premium system for me utilizing the latest technology panels available. He was local, so he was very knowledgeable with working the LA-DWP and LA-DBS. He actually came over my house, went over the proposal in detail, and answered all my questions. There was no hard sell as with some other companies. He personally supervised the installation and inspection process. From the time I signed the contract to final inspection was only 2 1/2 weeks! His installers absolutely lived up the name "craftsmen" in execution of the system. The whole process was so painless and easy I wished I had found him years ago. 3 days after completion LA-DWP came and installed my net-meter. We have only been up and running 4 days, and the system is making excellent power so far.

7.8 kW system

John Gallo and Suncraftsmen Solar made the process of going solar quick and painless. He offered the flexibility to choose the equipment that the big guys could not. He offered guidance on getting the best value and quality out of the system. His pricing was more than competitive and his reviews were great (which he met and exceeded). He installed the system within a week of my final decision to go solar. He repaired my roof which included some missing vent covers, broken tiles and leaks around all of the vents. He was insanely fast at getting the HOA paperwork, power company paperwork and building permits and inspections coordinated and carried out. He did not overlook small details and went the extra mile to get all of my questions and concerns answered. The system is up and running and exceeding our output expectations. I wanted to find the smaller contractor and avoid the big corporate hassle and I am glad I did. I would highly recommend him for your solar job.

Over and above

Not only is the installation perfect but when we needed help with the city power company, with birds nesting and more, SunCraftsmen was always there. They even fixed a ventilation fan and cleaned our skylights even though that wasn't their job AT ALL. Thanks so much.
