Q1:10 out of 10
Q2:Yes
Q3 & Q4:

"I have already sung their praises, including to my neighbor down the street, who used them as well. The only caveat I have is that I am unfamiliar with the program in Alameda County that allows people to afford getting their houses earthquake retrofitted. I qualified for that but didn't realize that I was supposed to take pictures before and after, so it didn't happen. I didn't get the money I qualified for."
