This is a letter of recommendation for Joe Charmasson, Whom I have maintained a professional relationship with for almost 20 years.

I know Joe to be a consummate professional in everything that he does. He is dependable and trustworthy, which are two attributes sadly lacking in contractors today. Over the years, he has done upgrades on my 1950’s home, and both of my 1920’S and 1930’s apartment buildings. Joe also designed and built a major office remodel for a friend's printing company.

In 2008-2009, my Wife and I did a “ground up” remodel of our Point Loma View home. While (another company) was the primary general designer and contractor for my remodel, l utilized Joe’s extensive background in construction management to review plans, suggest changes and monitor workmanship. He was invaluable! The electrical contractor had only planned a basic low~bid electrical system for our house. Joe reviewed the plans, completed a comprehensive electrical plan re-do, giving our home the panels, sub-panels, outlets, 3,4 and 5 Way switches that made the system match the functionality and quality of the house. Joe also identified several workmanship, design and product flaws which aided me greatly in getting what I was paying for.

One of the most outstanding design items that he did for our re-model was suggesting lowering the crown molding in the living room and the addition of indirect rope lighting concealed inside the crown molding. This change absolutely enhances the full harbor View in the evenings. Both the owner of (the construction company) and the electrical subcontractor were very ­impressed with the unique design change.

Joe also designed and supervised the installation of our “state of the art” solar electric system, using only the best components. It Was installed on time, and on budget.

Over the years, my working relationship with Joe has evolved into a personal friendship. l do not give out recommendations lightly. I would, however, be more than happy to meet or speak directly with anyone considering using his services."
