He is trustworthy, I/you can count on him!

He thinks things through and goes the extra mile just because.--- When in doubt, he sends me a picture and we discuss it on the phone.

Ryan B., A.K.A. "The Wood Wizard. Master Carpenter.
My only pet peeve is that he doesn't always answer his phone. Other than that, top quality craftsmanship and doing his best, means everything to him.
He is a perfectionist and falling short of perfection is not an option.
He specializes in Pergola/Patio Cover Construction and Repair, Dry Rot Repair, Exterior Gates, Interior Finish and Exterior Carpentry, Doors, Windows.
He loves what he does for a living! A true Master Carpenter and Craftsman of many trades.
He also specializes in Rough Carpentry, Painting, (Meticulous Prep, and the right Primer and Paint).
His Painting techniques are different than the Rancho Santa Margarita standards. Believe it or not, there is a difference.
The standard painting techniques are what caused your Patio Cover or Fascia Boards to weather prematurely. Our Patio Covers will outlast the Rancho Santa Margarita Competition by far.

64 years old and I can still hang with these guys.
We all love our work! Truly, one of my most enjoyable activities is to come to the job and work with these great guys.
Great exercise outdoors, doing somthing productive, love it!
At Blue Knight Pergolas/Patio Covers, we do not follow basic industry standards, we exceed them by far.
If the average homeowner only knew what goes on behind the scenes, they would be disheartened to put it mildly.
I am constantly amazed at what kind of individuals actually get away with calling themselves "Pergola/Patio cover experts", this includes contractors and their employees... That said, they do exist and they would also share my opinion.
It's a mistake to assume that all contractors follow techniques. The reality is that the contractors and workers are pretty much on their own, and faced with a lot of variables that few pay attention to. This is why your Pergola/Patio Cover needs attention now.
Rude/Uncivilized behavior will not be tolerated by Blue Knight Construction!
The following is common practice in the construction industry:
Urinating in flower beds, asking to use the homowner's restroom, cigarette butts in street or gutter, spitting on sidewalk or street, cussing or yelling, loud obnoxious music, just to name a few. We bring our own bathroom facilities and none of the above will will happen.
At Blue Knight Pergolas/Patios, you get true quality craftsmen, (as defined by us). We will prove that you made the right decision throughout the job and not just during a sales pitch.
These guys wouldn't work for us if we didn't embrace a higher standard. In the end, it's all about Our Techniques and the Craftsmen who take great pride in their work.
