Very well - SOD are incredibly professional, dedicated and skilled. SOD worked with us to build the home we wanted - not the home they wanted us to have.
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.

I've used
in the past for smaller projects, and decided to go with them for a larger garage repair from earthquake damage. Their prices are very fair and the work is usually of good quality.
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
was willing to work around my schedule very well, they failed to keep me updated regarding the progress of important stages of the project when I was gone (which was one of the only stipulations I had of the company admin department). So I would come back home and see that no work had been done and have to call or ask via email why the work wasn't complete. Very frustrating. I do give them kudos for working on weekends and after hours to complete phases of the project.
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
to a small electrocution on my part when flipping a switch. Had they talked to me about it beforehand, it might have been prevented. Also some of the estimates of electrical loads were incorrect, leading to misinformation down the road. For example, I was wondering how much electrical load the entire garage could take, and was told 20 amps, when in reality, it had a 30 amp breaker, which could have been communicated had they checked the breaker panel. This tells me that the information I was getting, was at best, a guess, and not knowledge based on professional opinion.
Overall, I think that
is great for smaller projects such as window replacements or ceiling repair, or maybe a bathroom remodel. However, the company barely has the resources or administrative expertise to handle larger projects. I know they hired a new administrative worker, so hopefully this might improve the quality of the experience in the future.

was always personally available and took responsibility for each phase and aspect of construction. He does all of the work in house, with his own guys, so the increasing cost of subcontracting each aspect out does not become an issue. They are professional, do high quality work, and follow through on their promises. Also, we pre-negotiated a price for the whole project, so there was no concern with hourly wages/ the speed at which folks were working (though never an issue, always efficient, just nice to not have to worry about the "well it took longer than expected, so you owe us an additional".... possibility) Also, when there were some minor issues that had to be redone or done a bit differently,

took full responsibility at no extra cost, and made sure the corrections were done quickly and correctly. The only thing I would have asked to be a bit different if we had to do it all again would have been to assign a project manager to our specific project. There were so many different aspects going on with the project, and different groups of people coming on different days to implement the various specifics, that sometimes my wife and I had to be the ones looking out for the cohesion between the components of the plan, which

is an amazing company. No other company was able to meet my needs and demands with such poise, professionalism, and expertise. They worked on a very large, very tedious project, and they were able to maintain all aspects of their professionalism from the beginning to the very end. I am not a very easy person to please, granted I know this. But I was fortunate to have come a across a company which is not only extremely knowledgeable of the process and work needed, but that they were essentially very patient and encouraging along the way.
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.

is a company unlike the rest. They make it clear that their ultimate goal is to make their customers comfortable, happy, and satisfied through and through.
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 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.

I found

on Angie's List.
Los Angeles Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
was easy to deal with and responsive by email. I contacted him a month in advance, negotiated a price with a drawing and photos of the site. He told me his price did not include the door or windows or paint but that he would install a window or door for $25 per unit. 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.
In one day

and two coworkers built a 12'x16' shed including installation of the windows, door and paint.

prepainted the shed components and then assembled them. It was not a

was able to call in another worker to help finish the project.
I wanted to have a peak roof shed but after some discussion during construction
Los Angeles Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
talked me into changing from a peak roof to a "lean to" style roof. It works better for rain and with the height of the door I had purchased. But, I had told him the size of the door in advance and I had drawn a scale drawing of the shed front and side elevations. If I had it to do over again I would ask

visit the site and be involved in the design. He did not see the site until the day he purchased the materials and showed up.

returned the next day to put some final touches on the shed. He is located quite a long distance away but that did not impact the project.

are great. Our house is somewhat eclectic, providing plenty of quirks and challenges for anyone making repairs. For our jobs, they gave us estimates on several different scenarios of repair, giving us options in cost and choice of materials. They explained each option in detail, helping us make a choice to fit our circumstances. Then, they got right to work! They worked on our job from start to finish and never left us hanging. They gave us daily updates, left the work area clean and tidy each day, and even finished all the work within the original estimated time frame! They also painted the new wood and trim to match existing wood. We used them for several jobs and have enthusiastically recommended them to family, friends, and coworkers (who have told us that they've been equally as happy with Mr. and Mrs.
Los Angeles Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
's work). They provided us will all the receipts and guaranteed the work. Highly recommended!

My wife and I are extremely satisfied with the work we received from AM Construction, we've seen firsthand the level of workmanship that went into work they performed, inside and out. Not only did they redo our kitchen from the ground up with the specs we requested, but they went beyond that to communicate with us in full along the way, that made us feel very comfortable during the process. With additional work we requested to be done, from the floors, windows, fixtures and appliances are of the highest quality, they put a lot of detail into energy-saving and environmentally-friendly elements including putting solar panels on the rooftop, using recycled building materials when available, and installing all energy efficient appliances. As homeowners, we are so grateful we chose the right company after hearing all of the horror stories out there about contractors.

is a nice guy who works hard and is extremely honest. He shows up on time, gets the job done and is a good problem solver. Obviously, if I didn't think highly of him, I would not have had him do all the projects I listed. He is totally trustworthy and absolutely scrupulous in his billing - everything is itemized and all expenses accounted for. Also, I have appreciated how tolerant and conscientious he is of the many pets we have in our household. I will definitely have him do more projects in the future.
