Garage Building reviews in Los Angeles
we've never done a renovation before and were apprehensive, but now we have a beautiful, well design and well built home. Like most construction jobs, we did go over the expected delivery date but only by a week. They have some very skilled craftsmen on staff - the attention to detail is magnificent, and managed the project in a very comprehensive manner. We are very grateful to SOD for going above and beyond what we expected.
The problems I had with them was communication and professionalism. The length of the project was supposed to be 30-45 days. Although there were some additions to the overall project, the time reflected did not meet the scope of the additional works. The project was 2 weeks overdue and that delay was not necessary. There were spans of 3, and 4 days where no workers would show up when they were supposed to. Understandably, these are subcontractors with their own schedules, but the inability to get these guys to show up at a specified time was problematic to say the least. My job requires me to be gone from home for up to 5 days at a time, and although
Also, the bookkeeping was a mess. The original estimate included a number that seemed to be pulled out of thin air. I asked for a more detailed estimate to include materials, hourly pay, etc, and barely received something that was useable. Numerous times they tried to charge me the incorrect amount for different stages of the project. It looked like they had a spreadsheet to keep track of expenses, but at times they couldn't even interpret their own numbers. Other times, they made mathematical errors and didn't even know it, or one person would tell me an amount was due and another person in the office would give me a different amount. Thankfully I kept track of my own expenses and corrected them when necessary.
For the most part, the quality of work done was great, such as framing, cement work, stucco finishing, and general construction. But there were some areas where I had to prompt them to finish, or correct work that they thought was complete that actually wasn't (i.e. door trim and baseboards). Small oversights in the electrical work
Overall, I think that
They worked with me to meet all my needs, they never went over me and every step of the way I was confident that each and every task was being executed in the most efficient and proper manner possible.
My entire house was basically in their hands, and I am so happy it was, because every action they took, every decision we as a team along with them made, only improved and bettered my house.
Their staff and team are absolutely the best group of people my family and I had the privilege of working and doing business with. Some of the guys include,
we will always keep you in mind for any future work or task needed.
We wanted to completely renovate our garage. Previously, it was used as a storage space with carpentry shelving throughout which severely limited the space. We wanted to convert to a living space so we hired PHB to gut it, insulate, dry wall, install lighting fixtures, install a new french door system, trim, baseboards, paint, concrete, etc. The whole shebang.
And he would paint the structure. He also created the empty opening for the pass thru into the garage for free. I gave him a Home Depot shingle part number and he purchased and installed asphalt shingles.
