  • "Beware of these folkd"

    Reviewed Feb 08, 2021

    Beware of these folks. They are overly priced and use every snake oil salesman trick that they can use to get you to buy from them. Don't ever deal with their sales guy named Ryan. He will curse you like hell if you don't end up going with them. Very unprofessional and shady people.

  • "Worst Experience Ever"

    Reviewed Sep 03, 2020

    This company was sub contracted through the solar company. They came out and began the installation on time and with a great pace...Until they started installing the panels for the front of the house. They were supposed to had contacted the HOA and verify that it would be ok to install on the front of the house. Long story short, they did not and the my HOA informed us that it was not allowed. We had to redo the layout for the panels and have them installed on the back of the home. Problem was Solar Chief had started installing on the front. They promised they would repair my roof and return it back to the condition in which they found it. They did not, as you guessed. They patched the roof and contacted roofing companies to get quotes to repair the roof correctly. The owner of Solar Chief explained that the estimates, from three different roofing companies, were too high. MONTHS later they sent two of their own guys out to repair the roof. They did a terrible job...maybe because they are not ROOFERS. The shingles were different colors and not laid correctly. Anyway...the own of the company stated that he should not have to pay for the roof because he thought it was ok to install on the front because there was another home in the subdivision that has them on the front. We contacted a lawyer, they contacted their lawyer. Bottom line they offered us $3000 towards the roof repairs that were estimated at $6000. We finally excepted the offer and never got the payment. A storm came through and damaged the roof severely and we were able to get it repaired properly a year and a half later. What ever you do, DO NOT use this company.

    I gave these people $13,250 as 50% on a project. They've done nothing and won't return calls. Nobody in any department answers their phone or email. These people are awful. Run the other way if they approach you. I'd give them minus 5 stars if the rating existed.
