Client Testimonials:

"The team at Residential Concrete & Design has successfully completed several projects on my home.  Each time we are impressed with John's attention

to detail, timeliness, follow through and the quality of his work.  I would highly recommend John and his team for any of your project needs!"

-Stuart Crosby, Homeowner - Cardiff By The Sea, California


"My family was in desperate need of capable and trustworthy contractor due to a flood in our house.  Residential Concrete & Design responded promptly, was reasonably priced and did a first-rate job with respect to concrete design and execution.  John Merklinger, who performed the work, was extremely experienced yet was careful to explain the details of the work....this was important as the flood most immediately impacted my 70 year old mother who was in a desperate state.  John took great care to assuage her that the problem was quite manageable and we are very satisfied with the work.  I highly recommend Residential Concrete & Design as a truly family friendly contractor!"

-Philip Hirsch, Venture Capital Fund Manager - 4S Ranch-San Diego, California


"My residential property needed attention.  Unreported to me, water damage to the existing tile caused a substantial amount of damage to the sub-structure.  John's team strategically repaired and replaced over 50% of the existing structure.  Other contractors wouldn't even touch it!  Yes, in today's world, it's easier to trash and replace than it is to repair just about anything.  But it takes more skill & less money when you find someone who can get the job done.  Residential Concrete & Design did a great job! They were on time, on budget and less than half my ground up quotes!"

-Jim S, Homeowner - Dana Point, California


"My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting John Merklinger in July of 2011 as we were selling our San Diego home and were in need of a Licensed Concrete Contractor to perform repairs for the sale of the home.  We felt fortunate to acquire John, from the minute we met him he was wonderful, not only did he provide professional and reliable services, but he did so with a great attitude and expert knowledge.  Since we live in Tucson, Arizona and were unable to be in San Diego, John cheerfully offered to help us in anyway possible.  Mr. Merklinger was available 24/7 and stayed in constant communication with us every step of the way.  John is fair, fun and friendly and it is easy to see he has a special talent in working with the public.  In a day and time where one rarely finds such genuinely friendly and caring people who are truly diligent and knowledgeable in their respective industry, we would like to pay tribute to John Merklinger for a job well done!"
