A Little History:
In regards to your decision making process, in terms of which company to go with we would like to add a few words about INSTALL-IT-DIRECT. Several members of our Team worked for one of the largest Paver/Synthetic-Turf/Design companies in the United States for over 6+ years absorbing as much knowledge/experience as one could absorb. The next step was to start our own company. In our discovery process, we found many opportunities to make the system better, much better! We exposed the fact that all of the companies buy their material from the same manufacturers and most of them subcontract the work out to the same group of installation crews which contain all different levels of experience.
Bingo, why not go DIRECT to only the best crews in the industry with 25+ years of experience, employ them exclusively to our team, implement extremely efficient methods with every process, which will eliminate the unnecessary overhead, and in turn, pass the savings onto you. Hence, INSTALL-IT-DIRECT was born; Unmatched Quality, Service and Value, which result in our most important goal, Extremely Happy Customers, paying it forward to you each and every day!

The "middleman" refers to many factors; all of which drive the price of your project higher and higher. A few of them include: the Clever/Crafty Salesperson looking to land a BIG commission check, the unnecessary middle management, the enormous marketing budgets, and other unnecessary overhead. Install It Direct doesn't believe in sneaky sales tactics. In fact, we don't have sales people at all. We offer FREE Professional Design Consultations where we are looking to add Beauty and Value to your home. By going Direct, you are receiving volume pricing directly from the best installation crews in Southern California without any fluff or hidden costs, which other companies must include to pay for all their "middlemen."
It depends on many factors. A higher score does not necessary correlate with the quality and service of a company. A higher score has a lot to do with the length of time a company has been in business and the number of complaints filed against the company. There is a big caveat here. When you join the BBB, they take your "stated business start date." What does this mean? This means that you can state whatever date you want as your start date. Yes, you can fabricate a start date. Make sure you cross reference a company's alleged start date with the date they obtained their Contractors License. FYI: it is illegal for any company to contract work over $500 without a valid contractor's license. So if a company states that they have been in business longer than their contractors license issue date, then they have been operating illegal and could face large fines and/or jail time. There are a lot of companies operating right now that have fluffed their numbers to make it seem like they are more established and increase their BBB rating, however, it is up to you as the consumer to do your own due diligence and find out the truth.

It depends on many factors. First of all, please note that there are very few companies in Southern California that have been in business actively and legally for more than 9yrs. Secondly, keep in mind that approximately 10 yrs ago, 99.99% of all companies switched from in-house crews to subcontractors due to the cost. What does this mean? This means that if a company has been in business longer than 10ys, they do not have the same crews working for them as they did on day one. As a result, their experience is tied to the subcontractors, not the company. A company is only as good as the people they have on their team. Since 99.99% of companies use subcontractors to do the work, then the question should really be, how many years has the subcontractor been in business, as they are the ones that are going to be doing the installation. Install It Direct has hand selected only the most experienced crews in the industry. We back up our claims by providing our customers with a 2yr warranty.
According to the CSLB (Contractors State License Board), a contractor must either have their C-27 license or their C-61/D12 license to legally install turf. If a contractor has their C-61/D06 (Paver License) or C-12 license and states that they can also install synthetic turf, this is NOT true, as they are not licensed to do so! They must apply for an additional classification with the CSLB and obtain their Synthetic Products license. INSTALL-IT-DIRECT has ALL three, D06, D12 and C-27.
