Your Local Pearl Contractor in Palm Springs, Palm Desert & La Quinta, CA

We are dedicated to leading the way by providing the highest quality service and comfort to our valued clients – in fact, that’s our mission statement! We’re so committed to excellence in every aspect of our work that we went the extra mile to become Pearl Certified. Many contractors say they’re high quality, but few can back it up with verification from a reputable third party like a Pearl Certified contractor can.

What Is Pearl Certification?

Pearl Certification is a national firm that qualifies an elite network of HVAC and plumbing professionals (including us!), giving them the ability to certify high-performing homes – homes that are healthy, comfortable, resilient, and energy efficient. The fact that we are Pearl Certified means that our work is verified to be high quality.

Our Work Is Pearl Certified

Only the top 5% of contractors in the country qualify for the network of high-quality, vetted professionals who can certify their work with Pearl — and we are one of them. This means that you can know for a fact that your home is in good hands when you choose us. Plus, with Pearl, we ensure your home’s upgrades are documented and certified by an independent third party.

How Our Pearl Certification Benefits You

Our Pearl Certification does three things for you as a homeowner:

  1. It gives you peace of mind: Our Pearl Certification helps you know that our work is top notch, because we are among the top 5% of contractors in the USA!
  2. It brings you energy efficiency: Because we meet the stringent requirements for Pearl Certification, you get the best improvements to your home’s energy efficiency. We do the work, and you enjoy the increased comfort and lower utility bills from your energy efficiency improvements.
  3. It increases your home’s value: Because we are a Pearl Certified contractor, we have the ability to certify your home with Pearl and award you Pearl Points for making energy upgrades. Pearl-certified homes sell for, on average, 5% more than similar homes without energy-efficient features or certification.

After every upgrade you have us make to your home, we will provide the documentation you need for added home value. Pearl also qualifies a network of real estate professionals who ensure your high-performing home is properly marketed and valued if and when you decide to sell.
