Customer Reviews and Testimonials


My company Enviroscape LA has been building award winning landscapes for over 30 years. We can not afford to create anything but the best of the best, on time and on budget. The contractors we chose to work with are an integral part of hitting our target. Thankfully, when it comes to carpentry, we can only work with the best and this is why we have been working with Franco for the past 20 years. When our construction projects call for carpentry, we work with Franco due to his excellence in craftsmanship, promptness. reliability and ability to be on budget. His foundation is built on integrity and honesty and I would recommend his services for general construction the entire South Bay and Los Angeles areas.

I am a designer located in Redondo Beach, California and have worked with Franco on a number of projects throughout the South Bay. Franco has built everything from pergolas, trellises, railings, high-end modern fencing, seat-benches, decks and freestanding planter beds with complex drainage systems. I have been consistently impressed by his ingenuity, quality, and commitment to outstanding customer service. The design-build phase of a project requires a great deal of accurate communication and timely correspondence. In both areas, Franco excels. A true craftsman, he develops creative solutions to complex problems and never cuts corners, even if it means undercutting his bottom line. He is most concerned with the longevity and quality of his product and offers a great deal of knowledge of materials that can be used to fit within any budget. I trust Franco implicitly, he is an honest man, a hard worker and I look forward to working with him for many more years to come.

Franco and his crew just completed a large Pergola for our Manhattan Beach home. We are very happy with the end product and look forward to many relaxing evenings in our ‘outdoor home’. The design is elegant and the craftsmanship excellent. We found Franco and his men responsive to our input and accommodating of changes we requested during the work period. Throughout, the site was clean, well maintained and appropriate care taken with our home and yard. The job’s ratio of quality to cost was excellent. We felt the project cost to be fair and appropriate. In short, we are very pleased and are happy to recommend Franco Remodeling.

As a garden designer, it has been my pleasure to work with Franco Colao on projects in the South Bay for over ten years. Franco is an excellent and experienced carpenter and a talented craftsman as well as a professional and reliable person. Franco brings focussed energy to every job, large or small, and his finished work is on schedule every time. He takes my concepts and sketches to the next level making every finished design beautiful and built to last. I recommend Franco for any project requiring a carpenter with outstanding skills and integrity.

As a landscape designer, I rely on reliable, talented contractors to materialize my conceptual drawings. I was fortunate to make Franco’s acquaintance about 10 years ago.
Since then, Franco has brought to life all woodwork that I’ve designed with extraordinary mastery. From benches, to decks, to pergolas, to trellises, every piece has been a work of art.
Franco has not only been a respected colleague for years, he has also done extensive carpentry work in my own home. As a professional and a homeowner, I’ve always appreciated Franco’s workmanship and sterling character.

We were in desperate need of a new pergola, as our old one was in serious disrepair. We weren’t sure what we wanted the design of the new one to be, but we had definite ideas of what we didn’t like about our existing pergola. Francisco came over to look at the existing pergola, the dimensions of the porch, and the surrounding area, and came back to us with a design that exceeded our expectations, and fit our budget. He came in and did a truly professional job, from demolishing the existing structure to fabricating the new pergola, and the end result is an awesome looking pergola in a space that was neater than he found it! Francisco was eager to help us transform our outside area into a place we would love to be in, and proud to show others, and we have done that time and again. Thanks Francisco, for creating a wonderful space for us!

Franco built our two gates and a pergola for our backyard and we are very happy with what he created. He is a first rate craftsman and a perfectionist in his handiwork. If you’re looking for beauty and perfection for your project this is the guy! Thank you Franco!

Franco did a great job building and installing replacement gates for our house. The workmanship was beautiful and he delivered ahead of schedule and on budget!

Franco’s Remodeling has just finished building for us a new 103-foot redwood fence.
We are very pleased with the result, especially since there were some challenges that needed to be overcome due uneven terrain; the workmanship was excellent and the fence looks great.
Franco is very professional and easy to deal with.  He explained clearly what the work would entail and the execution progressed as planned. We are happy to recommend him.

I just wanted to thank you again for your incredible craftsmanship! The planter boxes (and the fence of course) couldn’t be more perfect! Aidin got home last night and was thrilled as well! So thank you!
