We had a patio cover installed extra large one.  We are very happy with quality and the time that it was finished in. I would recommend these guys to anyone. They installed everything lights, fans and conduit. Billy and Michael did a great job from start to finish. Oh ya can’t forget Mark cause without him we would not have it. Thanks to all of you at Bright Ideas we really enjoy it.

Mark, Michael and Billy are awesome! Mark came by for a quote and actually was early! He took measurements, explained the install process (attached to stucco/flashing) and showed pictures of previous installs. Hands down I was impressed with his knowledge and any quiestion I had was explained thoroughly. I got the non-insulated cover with 2 lights & fan.

I was called a 3-4 weeks later as they make the cover to the dimensions from the manufacturer. I received a call from Bright Ideas and they gave me notice that the cover was in and they could start the next day. Billy and Michael are fabulous installers, showed up on time and got right to work. I offered them waters but they had there water jugs ready LOL! Since they started mid-day on the install they came back on Saturday to finish up.

One of the lights I had purchased was defective and didnt work. They offered to stick around so I could run to Home Depot while they clean up to get a replacement and didnt mind at all. By the time I returned, they had the patio spotless (prob even cleaner than it was before they arrived LOL!)  We got the light installed and they carried on there weekend!

A+++ service and expertise from this crew, highly recommended and would do it all over again! (and I might, you never know!)

This company is awesome. My hubby is a carpenter and I been asking for 16 years for a patio cover. My brother in-aw had them come out and put a cover on his patio. I seen it and it looks just like wood. It is made out of aluminum and is called Alumawood .  Mark, Billy, and Michael are on it. Their work is done so professionally.
Billy and Micheal are great to have as installers, very friendly and they clean up as they go. I would recommend them to my family and friends. This was done in a day and a half.. These two guys are so good I feed them lunch and was so appreciated for the food and I was for the patio cover.. Thank You Mark, Billy ,Micheal and Bright Ideas Design center…

I highly recommend these guys!  They were excellent from beginning to end.  We went in and Mark helped us choose what we wanted and worked with us on timing it so the project was done before my daughters 1st birthday party.  This company is great also because there are two installers Billy and Michael, so you know who is going to be at your house.  They were friendly and efficient they had the entire patio cover up in one day.  They also were very clean and had it all blown off the concrete and swept up in no time.  I would not hesitate to hire them again, in fact we are thinking of putting up another one in the future.

We love it!  Your guys did a great job.  You have great installers working for you.”

Mark, the owner, is honest, reliable and his prices are better than the competition (at leat the three I checked against). I am very happy with the finished product (though the quirky electrical work for the lights I requested left me scratching my head a bit).
It looks great, was built on time and I ended up with exactly what I wanted. I give these guys five stars and definite recommendation.

“We are thrilled with our overhang by Bright Ideas!  Your team did a great job installing and I was amazed how quickly they got the job done.  We even sat outside during the rain under the overhang a few days ago, it was wonderful!  We will be sure to let everyone know the outstanding and professional work you do.”

What can I say about these guys other than great things? Adding another chapter in my home improvement book, these guys were highly recommended by my concrete contractor, Callado Concrete.  I was a little skeptical given that I’d plunked down so much money already for the house of my dreams, but alas I allowed him to at least give us a quote!

The owner came out to scope our patio, take measurements and show me some photos of patio awnings they had installed previously.  They use a material called Alumawood which looks like real wood but is made out of aluminum.  He gave me an excellent quote and I decided it was worth it.  This would complete my back yard once and for all so I figured what the heck.

From start to finish the whole project took under half a month which being the not-so-patient guy I am, that was music to my ears!  Not only did they install the perfect patio awning, they also installed lighting, an outdoor fan, a power switch and an outlet all of which were expertly integrated with the awning.  Of course I had to buy the lights and fan separately but that wasn’t a bother at all.

Since all they do are awnings, I don’t think I’ll need their services again any time soon however they will come highly recommended for friends and family that would like the same.

“Thank you for the great work on my patio cover.  Please tell Bill that he did a great job envisioning this project and executing it in a precise way.  It looks great and is already making a difference in the temperature inside the house.  I’ll definitely recommend your business to others.”
