Fir & Judy Geenen

Rancho Santa Fe, California

"A building or remodeling project requires patience and an immense amount of trust in your contractor. When Judy and I decided to do some significant remodeling to our home, we took our time screening for a contractor with outstanding credentials who would execute our project in an attentive, timely and creative way. Ken Tarlton and his team came to us with impeccable references and delivered a high quality remodel with a high level of integrity. "

"I could write volumes and volumes about the WONDERFUL overall experience we had with TARLTON ENTERPRISES INC. on our remodeling project because they are THAT good! Our project was almost a total remodel. We also completely created a library/office out of a 1750 sq. ft. barn that had previously housed a greyhound bus-like RV, and a woodworking shop. We have used contractors in 5 cities on many projects, and the TEI team is absolutely the best we have ever worked with on a remodeling project. If you want a contractor that is professional in every way; is honest; gives you realistic time estimates; stays within the budget; listens to what YOU want (YES, REALLY!); solves problems creatively; has great design ideas (you won't find this anywhere else!), and is a pleasure to work with .....look no further. You get all this and more with TEI. After a year and a half of all this work you would think that I would be glad that they are gone ... I am only glad that the work is finished. We absolutely LOVE the transformation of our home, and now, we happily call Ken and his team our friends, as well as our contractor. How many people can say that?"

Marianne Dickerson

Rancho Santa Fe, California

"Several years ago we purchased a home in Rancho Santa Fe in order to be near our children. We have always lived in Virginia where we were familiar with various contractors and tradesmen; however, it was a bit daunting to be in a totally new community where we did not have the same resources. When we decided to renovate our California home, we were referred to TARLTON ENTERPRISES INC. Though we did have some preliminary meetings, most of the communication was done long distance. We were constantly informed of the progress of the project. Everything was completed in a timely manner with great attention to detail. We could not have had a finer company to work with than TEI!"
