They love us, they really love us! A&E TV called one of our very own CalFinder.com contractors to the set of “Flip This House” to rescue a nearly penniless couple from their home remodeling nightmare. In the episode, an ambitious San Clemente, CA couple embarks on a full-scale remodeling project only to face one disaster after the next, including the death of their original contractor. According to A&E, “Their renovation project has spiraled out of control: a 3,000-square-foot Spanish Renaissance dream house has become a house of horrors.” Good thing our guys stepped in. The California Construction Center (CCC) was CalFinder-certified in 2008 and we’re proud of their hard work.
You can catch the episode this Saturday, August 15 at 11 a.m. EST. It also features one of the show’s popular hosts, the suave Armando Montelongo, working alongside the CCC to bail these homeowners out of catastrophic financial ruin.
