Ed Talavera and his crew from Variety Construction were awesome!  They were professional yet friendly.  They completed the job on schedule and the finished product has received compliments from all the neighbors.  Not only would I recommend them to others, I would choose them myself for future projects.  Great job, great people, great experience.  Thanks!

I needed my cracked asphalt driveway ripped up and pavers put down.  Variety Construction gave me the best quote and completed all work as promised in about 3 days.  Ed was very professional and always available when I had questions.  His team worked very hard, on days where the temperature was over 100.  My driveway looks beautiful and I highly recommend Ed and Variety Construction to anyone.

The workers were very competent and did the work efficiently and in a timely manner. The weather was so hot and they still worked hard and finished the patio on time and did a great job. <br />Ed was courteous and had given good customer service. I would have given 5 stars if they had remembered to fill a corner area where the patio pavers had curved in the grass area with dirt.It was a simple fix and Ed did come back the next day and took care of it and we love the workmanship of the patio! His company gave great results and it was a pleasant experience.

Being a novice as far as dealing with contractors, my experience with Ed Talavera and his Variety Construction crew  made me feel like a pro. His competitive bid and knowledgeable insight of what i wanted as well as what i needed, gave me a warm feeling throughout the job. No hassels whatsoever. In on Thursday am, out on Friday pm, and a followup two days later left me with a smile and a beautiful new driveway.

It was the most excellent experience the project manager was on site every day most of the day for 6 weeks. The crew was professional and courtesy. Their craftsmanship was beautiful I spent over 70000.00 and it was well worth it.

Ed Talavera, owner of Varsity Construction was fabulous!  Very easy to work with and helpful with decision making.  Also, his workers were excellent.  On time every morning and very hard working.  Robert is an artist with stone.  I would hightly recommend this company for any type of stone work.  They completed the job when projected and there were no hidden costs.  I will be sorry to see them leave.

Ed was great to work with.  Not only did he come in with the most competitive quote but he also provided insights and ideas beyond the other contracters.  He was able to start and finish within the timelines he quoted and the work was done thoroughly and with attention to detail.  I'm very happy with my new driveway (pavers) and highly recommend Variety Construction.

Ed Talavera is the most professional contractor I have ever had. Variety Construction was always on-time, great communication skills, even finished the job one day ealier. In addition to this, you don't need to manage these guys, just tell them what you want and they do it. I will definitely use them again. Thank you Ed.
