General Contractor Francis Alwill got repair jobs in my house. I first hired him for small repairs. He is very easy to get a hold of and to negotiate. Reasonable price and professional job guaranteed!! I had other general contractors, handy men, and plumbers for repairs but now I call only Francis Alwill whenever I have some problems at home.
He also replaced heating ducks and old pipes in the kitchen. He installed a drywall in the garage. He remodeled my master bedroom.
He showed up on time. I did not know that I had to get a permit for the roof. He scheduled city inspection before & after the job in a timely manner and he provided me the permit when the job was completed. He did not charge me any extra money. I got the city permit right away. His crew members were professional and did all the jobs on time.
Whenever I have some problems with my house, I feel comfortable giving him the job. I refered him to my friends and they all love him.
I highly recommand him for any repairs!

Please post this on Angies List, not the Monterey Forum.

Of course, I may consider calling him if my regular ducks get cold and I need to warm them up with heating ducks. Unless they decide to get into my heating ducts, and then I may need to find someone to rescue them.

I started my project with a contractor who was not familiar with the Carmel building department. After talking with Francis for 10 minuates I knew he was the contractor to do my remodel. He finished on time and on budget.

Francis Alwill was refered from my good friend who is his long time client. I was not sure how much was involved with my remodel. Francis drew me up a proposal lining out every detail. I found his prices for labor to be competitive and fair. I was glad that Francis was there to ease my concerns throughout the project. Many late phone calls were made and calmed by a contractor who not only knows his work but understood my concerns.

Francis was referred to me when I was in desperate need of a contractor. My best friend Carol told me he does good work but is pricey. Francis encouraged me to get bids from other contractors. Everyone was about the same but Francis proposal warned me of the possibility of what could go wrong. I used him and the project went as Francis promised. In 2010, I wanted to remodel my kitchen. I got three bids, Francis being one of them. One bid was almost 25% cheaper and the other two were pennies apart.

I went with the cheaper. The project dragged on and on. Extra after extra. 1/4 of the way through and the budget had already been exceeded. I called Francis for his advise. "I warned you."

I paid the contractor off and hired Francis. Francis has my trust. This fall, I'm doing a room addition and Francis still insists I get two other bids so I know i'm getting value.
