“HTA Certified firms undergo a rigorous background check to ensure they are technically competent, demonstrate solid customer service, and have a positive reputation. Less than 10% of companies will reach this status!”

Our home building experience with Cloud9 has been terrific! We engaged Thomas and the Cloud9 team early in the design phase of a new home project in Steamboat Springs. At the project’s outset Cloud9 listened carefully to determine the features and functions that would best fit our lifestyle. The resulting control-system proposal for sound, lighting and blinds worked well with how we wanted the new home to function. Throughout the process Thomas and his team were flexible and responsive. They made adjustments to the plans as ideas evolved, while remaining disciplined about the project cost with well-documented proposals and change-orders.
Thomas and team also enthusiastically pursued new ideas and expanded Cloud9’s capabilities to accommodate our unique requests. And they’ve provided great post installation support. The end result… an amazing in-home experience – exceptional audio/visual capability coupled with intuitive smart-device control of the house’s main functions. Highly recommended!
