Here’s what our happy customers had to say about our services:

“I recently had my house coated with Supercoat cool wall by Select. I was impressed with the punctuality of the crews. The job was finished in the amount of time that was predicted. During the process of working, I wanted to make a few changes and the foreman and project manager were very willing to work with me. They even removed old paint from a block wall that the old homeowner had done and I didn’t like.”


“All the people I talked to were very friendly and answered all my questions. I had 8 windows put in. One was a garden window in my kitchen. Looking through the windows were like as if the windows were not even there because they are so clear. When I went to clean in my bathroom the other day I went to open the window and thought how hard it would be to open then I thought I have new windows. They opened so smoothly. They put trim around the windows so the windows have a clean look to them. I just love my windows. The outside of my house where the windows have a nice white trim around them too. Makes the windows have a nice clean look on the outside too. I am very happy with my decision. Thank you Select Home Improvement Anaheim!!”


“From the sales representative to the roofers to the office personally, I was impressed with the way they handled themselves. The knowledge of the business of all the trades involved in the building and improvements for the home. The crew they sent out was the same crew to do the tear off to the roofing and everything in between. With the tear off, what a mess, they kept the debris to a minimum. After the installation of the roof the clean up was not as big as I was expecting and when they drove away, it looked as though they weren’t ever here. My experience with Select Home improvements was a 5 star. I would feel confident to recommend them to my family and friends who need any work done on their home.”
