The two security patrol and alarm services companies with the largest
presence in Ladera Heights are Security Services Systems and Bel Air
My choice from the two is Security Service Systems because they have
been heavily involved in supporting the Ladera Heights community and
they have patrol officers who really know the area, what is normal,
and what is not. In addition to their 24 hour response, Security
Services Systems currently has car dedicated soley to patrol of Ladera
Heights for 8 hours per day. As the number of residents signed up for
their patrol service increases, they will expand the hours of their
dedicated patrol, so the more Ladera Residents that choose Security
Services Systems, the better it will be for all of us.

- Bel Air Patrol (ADT) - 800-577-5677
Locksmith and physical security

recommendation is Top Lock and Key. They have been involved with the
Ladera Heights community for many years, and really know what they are
doing. Their owner regularly teaches locksmithing, and he knows how

Your choices for telivision are cable, from Time Warner Cable, Satelite from
DirecTV or Dish Network, or getting your signal off the air with an
antenna. If you are near the top of Upper Ladera and don't need the
cable/satelite only channels, you can get strong signals for all of
the major on-the-air stations, but the signal is weaker as you move
down the hill. Of the other two choices, Satelite is likely to be the
cheaper option, but if you get high speed internet from Time Warner Cable, the
discount applied to internet access might make the cost comparable.
For drywall work, including patching, replacemet, texturing, and painting, my recommendation is Dehaven Company at (714) 647-2339. When I needed a drywaller, they were recommended to me by a neighbor. I obtained several quotes, and theirs was the best for what I needed. Combined with the recommendation from my neighbor I went with them and am delighted with the quality of the work, and the time it took them to complete the job. Their operation is very professional and efficient. Where texture was applied, it extremely well with that on the the existing drywall.
Another recommendation for painters is Dandy Painting reachable at (213) 382-5922. They painted the outside of my house a couple of years ago. I got a good price, excelent quality, and quick completion of the work. They too had been recommended by a nieghbor (a different neighbor than the one that recommended the drywallers).
