This is the worst company that I have ever done business with.

I bought a system that took over 4 months to get connected to the grid! The wait time had nothing to do with my utility company, PG&E. PG&E gave me permission to operate 3 days after receiving all the correct paperwork from GCI. The multiple delays were caused by a series of GCI employees that all screwed up.

I signed GCI's Construction contract on 8/30/13, I paid outright for the whole system, and installation happened about three weeks later around 9/20/13. They failed to schedule the inspection on time, I called multiple time to inquire about it. When it finally happened - sometime after 10/28/13, They failed the inspection. Some time later, they sent one of their installers out to make all the required corrections that were cited during the inspections. This included grounding the system to a water line...among other things. I had to reschedule the inspection myself, and meet with the next city inspector without a GCI representative just to get it done!

In the mean time, they falsely told me that I needed to upgrade my panel to handle the new system - I paid $240 to the city for a totally unnecessary extra permit because they have no idea what they are doing!!! It turns out that my panel is just fine as it is - it was just some bonus confusion...My husband cut the drywall above our electric panel to install lines for a Jet tub in our bathroom several months ago...because the drywall was cut, and we had pulled a permit for the panel (Only because GCI told up that it would need to be upgraded) - the city said that it looked like a new panel and needed us to pass the inspection on it! We never installed a new panel!!! It just cost us extra money and time.

That whole process took me into November. They are horrible at scheduling next step and tracking progress. They told me that I was in line with PG&E to get my system connected to the Grid....I just called PG&E on 1/9/14 (assuming that they were the hold up) and they said that they STILL haven't received a copy of the approved permit from the solar company!!!! Wow. How many times could they possibly drop the ball!?! When I called them, they told me that they had sent it to PG&E in early December, and that it's not their fault...after some time on hold - they backtracked and said that they had actually made a mistake and failed to send it. THIS WHOLE TIME NOBODY CHECKED ON THE PROGRESS???? PG&E even sent the a note back asking for the permit again! Nobody from GCI ever responded to them! What are they doing over there? Nobody is paying attention at this company. I do not recommend doing business with them. They finally sent the paperwork into PG&E on the 9th after my call, PG&E turned it around very quickly - I had permission to operate within a matter of days.

On 1/9/14, I spoke with a Manager, David Nguyen. David said that he would speak with his VP about all the trouble and call me back no later than Tuesday, it's Friday and I still have not received a call from him....however, I did receive a call today from their sales department asking if I was interested in installing a system!!! Wow.

I also wrote a Yelp review about them on 1/9/14. It was responded to by GCI's William Chen. William must have failed to read my review, because he responded to it by blaming PG&E for the delay while making other false claims about the situation.

It has been amazing to experience this complete, across the board, lack of competency.

I contracted GCI SOLAR to install solar panels at my home and I have been happy with the whole process.

My electricity rates are high and they will only continue to increase over the years. GCI SOLAR presented me with a few options that would benefit my specific situation. They were even able to sign me up for no money up front. That was a huge relief for me.

My panels just went up and I am now ready for the summer to begin.

Thanks GCI SOLAR!

Just another out-of-town solar vendor that makes empty promises. Do yourself a favor and go with a LOCAL established C10 electrical contractor.

Today GCI Solar cancelled their appointment on the day of arrival, citing too far to drive. So if 1.5hours is too far to drive for a company's sales team, it makes you wonder about their installation and customer support teams.

For me, there are just too many solar vendors out there. You as the consumer deserve to be picky and choose the best fit for your situation.

Don't waste your time with GCI Solar.

A marketing person came to our home and could not answer simple technical questions. He also only provided a handwritten proposal on notebook paper (no terms, conditions, etc.) and asked us to make a copy of it. Then he wanted to close the deal - no way! When we asked for referrals of customers that had already had installations by them, we waited almost a week, and then were given one referral who had only had their system in for 2 months. We asked for a few more referrals of similar size systems they were proposing and that were installed for longer than 2 months, and are still waiting for their reply - it has been over three weeks. That is ok - we decided to put our money with another company and are extremely satisfied with their professionalism and integrity. Buyer beware with this company!!

GCI ENERGY is the BEST home improvment company in southern California BAR NONE. Yes, they are a little more pricy, and Yes, they are persistant. But we are talking about a company with Excellent ratings, and a company that surpasses the competition when it comes to quality and customer care. If you are planning to make severe upgrades to your home, you want GCI. Others may claim to be cheaper, better, etc, but i ahve been fooled repeadetly. GCI has always kept their promises and are very persistant not only with the follow-ups, but even at making sure that i am happy with everything. My comfort and satisfaction was their main goal, and that is what compelled me to chose them over the rest. SOLAR has dropped my bill considerably, and the people running that office are more than easy to communicate with. THANKS GCI ENERGY!!! keep up the graet work!!!

p.s and for the people who left negative comments... feel free to go with other companies, but be warned, 90% of those companies with the great prices and great warrenties, will not be around in the next 5 years. GCI has been in business for over 33 years.... something to consider. QUality beats anything in my book, :)

As seen with other reviewers on this and other sites, we have experienced many months of frequent telemarketing calls from GCI. We have asked them to stop many times, but they just keep calling. In a recent call, the telemarketer made demeaning comments to my wife.

If you are on the Do Not Call list and they call, I recommend you report them as we have.

There seem to be a number of very well written reviews of this company on this site. While there is no way to confirm these were actually written by real customers, they seem to be in contradiction with their sales methods.

I would never do business with someone I don't trust.

I HIGHLY recommend AGAINST using Galkos Construction for any project. Their work is okay, but they bombard you with sales calls afterwards, and even sell client phone numbers to other construction companies in the area. We are still getting "referrals" from Galkos two years after having work done, and having requested that Galkos stop calling us.

My wife and I cannot express deeply enough our gratitude for a job so well done. Our windows are so beautiful they surprised even us. It was a difficult decision for us to make. We are a single family income residence with typical household responsibilities that are priorities.

Such an investment was a major concern, as well it should be; however, that concern was silenced after the completion of the job. It did not take long for us to realize we were wise in our investment with Galkos. Our heater, which ran almost continuously through the cold nights, is now heard only sparingly, as will be our air-conditioning unit we expect.

The house truly reflects our desire to have a beautiful home to come back to. Armando and his crew were as efficient and friendly as the brochures have made all Galkos employees out to be, and I was amazed to return from work the day they began, to find the job complete. It was truly an outstanding experience to have done business with the Galkos family.

We would like to express what a great job Galkos Construction did installing Green Fiber Insulation in our attic. The salesman presented the plan to us with no high pressure on his part concerning buying his product. His presentation was very professional and plainly understood.
This is a company that does what they say they will do, and we would recommend them whole-heartedly to our friends. They arrived on time, and the job was completed in less than four hours. The workers were all very polite and helpful. The clean-up was very through, and we were so happy to do business with a local company.

We are thrilled with our decision to go solar with GCI Energy. The entire process was simple and straightforward, and the GCI Energy representatives were there each step of the way. The installation was amazing. The crew was on time, very courteous and worked extremely efficiently. They made sure everything was hooked up and running. They went above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend going solar with GCI Energy!

My wife and I have been customers of Galkos Construction for a few years now, we have had windows, patio doors and recently had Armor-Tech Coating done. Now our home stays cool when its hot and warm when its cold. The staff has always been great to us and the workers have been very clean and professional. We now have the best looking house on the block. We highly recommend Galkos to any one - neighbors, family and friends without hesitation.??

We have been treated with the utmost concern and caring every step of the way from Mr. Brian . providing us with all the answers to our questions, to Jennifer (in production) rescheduling the job start date when we had an emergency health issue, to the crew that did an excellent job preparing our house and applying the Tex-cote.

We were very impressed, five years ago, when we had Galkos Construction install vinyl windows throughout our home. The crew kept the glass and debris cleared all through the process of cutting out the old windows and installing the new ones. We have since seen a substantial reduction in the need for heating or cooling of our home, therefore reducing energy cost.

Because of this excellent service we decided to use Galkos Construction when we needed the outside of our home redone. Again, we are very impressed with the work that was done, from repairing of the existing stucco to the excellent application of the Armor-Tec. We tell everybody how impressed we are with the excellent job and courteous service we have received from your company.

My wife and I just got solar from GCI Energy because our electric bill was so high having a pool and air conditioning it only made since to utilize the all the rebates offered right now . GCI was not the first estimate we got but due to the knowledge and service we got, we chose GCI. When the salesman came out he answered every question we had like an expert and was very professional. We were able to get exactly what we wanted for a great price. Our electric bill now is so small we barely notice it. We are very happy we chose GCI and woulde recommend them to anyone looking into solar.

Thank you

I made the mistake of giving them my number. They keep calling and calling for years even after I told them I'm not interested.
Recently, they lied just to get into my house ("we will give you an energy savings estimate"). When the salesman showed up, all he wanted to do was sell windows. When I refused to buy any windows, he just up and left (I never even saw what kind of windows he is sellng)!
I think this company is very aggressive, but not necessarily competitive in pricing.

"My name is Catherine G., I had four windows and a French door installed from Galkos Construction . This is the third time we have had Galkos come out to do work at our home.

The Installation crew is very professional and have provided us with very good service each time they have come. Their job is always complete and when they are finished, the only thing to show that they have been here are the lovely new windows and doors that they install. I would recommend them highly in the future. I'm sorry to see others had a bad experience because I'm very happy once again.

A few months ago my wife and I were approached by a Peakpower sales manger who suggested that we could reduce our current electric bill significantly. I was, at the very least, quite skeptical. After listening to what he had to say we set up an appointment to get the whole story. Upon completion of the presentation, my wife and I singed the agreement to have solar panels installed.

The solar panel installers from Galkos Construction came out on time and started preparing the roof for the panels. I was very please in how efficient the workers were and how the kept me abreast of each step of the process. Their ability and professionalism in getting the panels installed on a timely basis was only exceeded by their willingness to answer the myriad of questions I hit them with. I would be honored to have them work on my house at any time.

We received our first full month bill from the electric company and we were thrilled to see that we had saved $200.00 over the previous month. I feel strange in saying that I look forward with anticipation for our next bill. (Who is ever anxious to receive a bill?).

In closing, I would like to say that everything that was promised to us from Peakpower and Galkos construction was delivered and I would highly recommend all who were responsible for making our life a little easier and would welcome anyone wishing to look at the system or call for any questions.

Thank you again,

BEWARE OF POSITIVE REVIEWS. I would bet they are fakes. I asked them for a quote on new windows about 5 or 6 months ago. Shceduled an appointment and that is when it started. They immediately started harrassing me by calling my cell phone every day to try to get me to meet earlier. After over a dozen calls I told them to cancel the appointment and never cvall me again. they continued to call me daily even after making complaints to two supervisors and a manager. I put in a complaint to the B B B and the do not call registry and finally they stopped calling...for 3 months. Then they started calling me again under a different company name (GCI ENERGY) which is a division of Galkos. After doing some research, it seems this is how they get their business. Predatory hard sales tactics. They sell for twice the prioce of competition and then finance it so they get an even bigger cut. This company is a sham. Use a legitimate company, don't fall for these guys.

I received a hard sell quote from them in 2007 and was NOT please with the price or the bad car salesman tactics. I did not use them and in fact did not complete the project. They called me today 06/08/09 and wanted to come by again for another quote with at least 50% off the original cost. I told the person on the phone that I could not schedule without talking to my husband first and he gave me a # to call back. I asked him if this was a call center and he said no that he was the assistant to the owner. Well His name is Mario and according to Galkos - When I called the # back the owners assistants name is Wendy. Here we go again... More lies from Galkos.

Wow it was just a couple of months ago my husband had Galkos install new vinyl replacement windows and solar. We were looking for quality products not the cheapest price. After doing some research we found that Galkos has been in business longer than most construction companies and most are no longer in business now. Not only did we upgrade to energy efficient products to save on energy but we got products that a company stands behind.
Galkos offers a lifetime warranty on their windows which we did not find offered by other companies. We just felt this comment surprising and would like to say we are very happy with our Windows and Solar and would definitely reccommend Galkos if you are looking for quality products.

This afternoon, the final touches were made on my Armor-Tec coating and trim package I purchased from your company. I am extremely happy with the results and the professional standards demonstrated by your work crew. Everything I was promised, prior to signing the contract, was accomplished.

During the 10-day work period, I was approached by several of my neighbors inquiring as to the progress and coloring. I chose Cape Cod Blue with a white trim to accent my large, nearly 4000 square foot, two story home. The final result was simply, beautiful.

I do not write such flattering letters often, in fact, it is a shame that in the construction industry, most people are disappointed during and after the process is completed. Your company, Galkos Construction, stands apart in that everything from beginning to end was accomplished. Your crews were respectful of overspray, they covered all vehicles close by with plastic tarps, even neighbor??s cars parked next-door in their own driveways. Additionally, plants, patio tables and chairs were likewise covered.

I would recommend your services to anyone thinking of coating their homes. The investment of over 1 million dollars to purchase my home, well justifies the cost of Armor-Tec coating of less than 2% of my homes value.

In closing, please accept this letter as my family??s sincere THANK YOU for an excellent job!

I just wanted to inform you that your staff Han and his crew came to my house early this morning and in a timely manner installed my new windows. I am very pleased with their workmanship and professionalism. Han is a very personal individual and does a good job in representing your company by doing what he can to accommodate the customer's needs.

I look forward in having your next crew do my patio cover in the near future.

Sincerely,
Richard A.

My wife and I got several window estimates from different companies our self and we have to agree Galkos Construction was not the cheapest but what we found Galkos had the best warranty and a better product. Galkos also offers Anlin Windows not just Atrium. All of Anlin Windows and Doors do qualify for the energy tax rebate so we made to purchase. We have to admit the service was very good and we really love our windows. So if you are looking for good service and good products we would recommend Galkos to anyone look for new windows. We have found some negative reviews but more positives so we would have to say it probably goes with the saying you can't please everyone. Hope this helps thanks again Galkos.Brian Simmons.

We would like to express how satisfied we were with the installation of our windows done by Galkos Construction. Their work was extremely professional. Not only was their work excellent, but also themsleves were very cordial.
Customer service is something that lots of companies lack, however, We think Galkos is very lucky to have the kind of dedicated workers representing their company.
We would recommend Galkos in a heartbeat.

Pros: High quality products with the best warranty

Cons: none

Definitely recommend this company. I was going to purchase from them but cancelled and the owner personnally thanked us for even considering them for the service. He was very professional. They beat any price you see out there and "satisfaction guaranteed" or your money back. We only cancelled because our priorities changed in regards to our finances so we put it off for another year. Definitely using them next time.

Galkos is a horribly run business. I had them come out to give an estimate, passed on their quote, and unfortunately gave them my home number. For two years running, they keep calling my home, never leaving a message, and will not stop calling, in spite of repeat requests. If you do business with Galkos, DEFINITELY do not give them a phone number you use often. HORRIBLE!

If you are looking for a construction company to purchase windows or probably any other home improvement upgrades we would highly recommend Galkos Construction. With all the discounts and service they offer we had to give them a try and purchased new vinyl windows. Our family is very please with the product and service we recieved from Galkos. Very well recommended.

The salesperson came to my home to give me a estimate. After he told me the price, I told him that I would need time to think about it and also get other estimates. At the end of the presentation, they put on the heavy hard sell tactic and want you to say yes right away today. After a while of arguing back and forth about why I cannot decide today right away, when I told him there is no way I was going to say yes today no matter what the price was, he became very infuriated and told me that they don't just come to give free estimates and that I was wasting HIS time - What about MY time that he wasted trying to argue with me!! He had a very bad attitude at the end and would not even want to give me his business card. Because of that, he just missed any chance of me ever calling him back for any business.

Just recently purchased 16 windows and texcote for our home and could not be happier. Our home looks brand new and the quality of workmanship was excellent. We looked into several different companies and decided to choose Galkos because of the product quality, the warranty and they offer financing. If you are looking to do any home improvments we would highly recommend Galkos Construction.

Thanks Again

I just purchased 5 windows and 1 patio sliding door from Galkos Construction Co. The marketing man seem very nice and honest to us. He recommended us the Anlin infinity plus windows. The price is a little high for our budget, that is why we only bought 5 windows instead of 9. We can not wait to see how it look. Takes about 2-3 weeks to order, but only half a day to install. I'll let you know how it turn out. Well the windows looked very nice. The crews show up on time and they did a great job.

Having been an architect on many commercial, educational, hospital and military construction projects, both small and large throughout the United States, I appreciate the quality work I recived from the profeesional installers. Galkos completed the project in a manner beyond our fondous expectations. My wife mentioned how clean the work areas were maintined and how well the final job appeared. It was a pleasure having Galkos install our new vinyl windows that just look beautiful. We would highly recommened Galkos Construction to anyone looking for great service.

Just wanteded to say what a great company I have read a couple negative reviews so I thought I would help out and give my opinion about Galkos Construction. First of all love both products I have purchased in the past and the service was excellent. If you have any questions or concerns all you have to do is call. My Galkos patio cover was the first product I purchased and was very happy so when I bought my new property I purchased a Galkos sunroom. Theres nothing like sitting in a room full of windows watching the sunset and knowing you paid almost half than a regular addition. So I would recommend Galkos to my friends and family.

We recently purchased a patio enclosure and texcote from Galkos Construction. The crew was very friendly and the job was done in a reasonable time. Construcion is never a quick process but we arevery happy with our patio encloser and texcote. The customer service was very good so we recommend this company if you are intersted in a patio cover, patio enclosure, texcote or vinyl windows.
Oh can't forget the discount they give you if you go through there website www.galkos. com

I got a $30k quote on my windows. They said they make their own but that isnt true. They sell Atrium. I got my windows at Door and Window Plus in South El Monte for thousands less. Bryan was my salesman that came to my house. 626-354-4268

I had them come out to give me a quote on 6 windows, the saleman wasvery nice and we agreed on a price of $2,900..yes that's right $2,900 for all six. Then the final measurement guy came in measured and the next thing it was $5,900 because they had to adjust the size of my bedroom windows dueto some fire code. I think they should have this information in the very begining so that there is no surprises or maybe it was all part of their selling scheme. SO beware.

The salesman was very nice but I couldnt spend over $775 a window. He started at over $1500 a window and then dropped the price. Not very professional price. I told him I wanted the best price. He told me several times it was his lowest price but he still dropped 10 minutes later. The window was nice but only had one brand. Atrium which is a nice window but I found it much cheaper elsewhere.
