So I saw this company on Facebook. My friend posted some photos of the work she was doing to her house, and it all looked great. By the time the project was done, I was amazed of how great her house had turned out. Once her house was done I asked advanced builder and contactor to come out and give me a quote. They were polite, and on time. The person I meet with was easy going and experienced, unlike the other companies who were very pushy and not confident about the answers they were giving me.So after about 2 week of checking out all the builders out on angieslist, and reading their reviews I went with advanced builder and contactors, because their proposal was the most detailed and accurate. Also they were the only one who really understood the project. I felt very comfortable with them. They were a bit more expensive than the others, but they had also included more work, and (unlike the other 3 builders, all the correct scope of work was detailed). This project was very complex, so I needed to make sure that all the work was included, and that I wouldn’t be bombard with additional charges later on. So after about a day of going back and forth and trying to do my best to haggle on price I signed a contract.The project itself went by very quickly, and each day as they had promised they would do their best to clean up. The quality was good, and the service was fast. The only down side to the project was that I couldn’t move a particular wall which we had hoped, so we had to go back and redo the plans.

and contactor had warned me of this, but I kept insisting that they try anyways. In the long run it all turned out well. I am very happy.P.S. I was surprised at the professionalism of the entire crew, every spoke highly of the company and the owners. Im originally from the east coast and I know that construction crews get mistreated all them, so I was shocked when I asked the crew how the they were treated, and they all said very well. Not what I expected. I think you can see the integrity of any company by how its own employees are treated.

This group was excellent. We chose this group because they did the most thorough job estimating on our project. They came over to our house 3 times before they typed up an estimate, the 1st time Nick came alone, the 2nd time he came with
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, and the next was with an engineer. You could see they really cared about the project and were looking for a reasonable solution to our many different drainage, hillside, and hardscape issues, so that they would be no surprise in cost during construction.
The other groups we meet with were no this thorough, or caring. They just threw a number at us and said that, the price of the project will start there and they couldn’t even give us a cap. ABC was the only company who actually invested time, and man power before they even got paid to educate us on the problems, and how best to resolve them. And each time they would say we will have to do a bit of demo work, so that we can be certain what the problem is. All the other groups just guessed and wanted money up front or a signed contract before they began.
This house was a mess what I bought, and I’m glad that I was lucky enough to meet the advanced builder and contractors through a friend who had extensive work done on his home and he was extremely happy.
Advanced builder and contractors paid great attention to the smallest details, and double checked their work. They were able to clearly explain each step of the project to us. Our project manager,
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was amazing in both his knowledge and of his caring nature for the project. The results speak for themselves. All our issues have been fixed now, some of our leaking issues took a couple of try’s, which was expected. But everything is now 100% fixed. This group did an excellent job.

Buying a home is stressful enough, and then on top of that you have to find the right contractor who is not going to take advantage of you. After having that horrible experience with a unlicensed contractor I quickly turn to ABC to help out and redo pretty much everything the unlicensed contractor had done. ABC completely understood our situation and give us a proposal the same day which except that the same day. It was a relief finally to find someone who would be doing quality work and be able to get us back into the home as quickly as possible, the unlicensed contractor has been working there for over 7 weeks and still had nothing to show for it. Every time I would ask for an update he would say that next week would be different because he would be able to work on my job full time. eventually I got fed up with the unlicensed contractor I contacted building and safety of Los
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
my self, when the inspector came out he gave me a bunch of Corrections that had to be redone because pretty much everything the unlicensed contractor had done was worthless.
(Right away with ABC we saw a difference the proposal was written line by line, they begin work within the week, everything they promised was done on time, they kept me up to date on the progress of the job and when all the inspections would be done. Since there was so much that they had to redo the project took a bit longer then I had originally anticipated but I'm happy to say that it turned out beautifully and I now have a quality home to show for it.
Take my advice and do not under any circumstances hire and a unicensed contractor for any project in your home. It is not worth the headache and stress to save a couple of bucks. This was a very good lesson for me as I will turn to Angie's List from now on to find good quality licensed contractors who believe in a fair price and believe in doing quality work. Thank you Angie's List.

C&C Partners offers both architectural design and construction. We only utilized them for construction. We met on a regular basis,
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, the part owner and contractor, provided a detailed checklist for the decisions and executions that we needed to make/do. He laid out the decisions that we needed to make (window type, doors, cabinet pulls, built ins, lighting, etc. in a well paced, non-hurried, manner, but still kept us on time and on-schedule.
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had a low key, dry humor that worked out well when we became anxious about a decision. He offered suggestions, many of which were not motivated by cost, but more by how it would perform as we lived in the home. We trusted his judgement and he repaid our trust by providing us with a hassle-free, great experience. No horror stories (except maybe waiting for permits and for the gas company to install our meter), and nothing but positive things to say about C&C, their management, supervisors, workers, and outsourced electrical, plumbing, landscaping, etc. They were all superb -- easy to work with, high quality, fast. We are truly living in the house of our dreams -- everything is in the right place, and it all works. When there is a minor problem, C&C will come back and fix it. It has been an amazingly happy and easy experience. I highly recommend C&C Partners if you have extensive construction that needs to be done.

my bathroom is 25'x20' approximately..
i wanted to have a complete look with new shower and shower jet system.
all the materials were selected and purchased from a vendor that works with
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, so the process was pretty easy.
my meetings with the sales rep (
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
), was good as well. my arrangement with him was that i pay only to them and they will take care of all the rest. the price was basically split to 2 parts. 1 for all the materials and the other one for their work.
all the work performed by their people and i loved it because there was no "external" contractor that got involved at my house.
within 2 weeks from the starting day, my bathroom was complete. this included paint, new vanities, faucets, ceramic all over the bathroom including the shower walls and the shower jets.
as of now, i'm very happy with the new look of my bathroom, and the shower system that was installed!

Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was recommended by a co-worker. We had four general contractors bid the work, and
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's price was neither the highest nor the lowest (but closer to the lowest). We were very impressed by his attention to detail and the questions he asked. Most of the bidders asked questions about the plans, which
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
did as well. However,
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
also asked questions about things that were not on the plans, but which we immediately viewed as important points.
We hired

, and are very happy that we did.
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's subs and material providers were all fantastic, and they clearly respect him a lot. He also works with his wife
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, who is also great.
There are always issues in a remodel, and our project was no different in this regard.
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
took ownership ownership of each issue and found reasonable solutions. One such problem involved the need to completely re-engineer our structural design because my architect was wrong about his assumptions about existing structural conditions.
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
helped find goods solutions, and managed to keep other parts of our project on schedule while the engineers addressed the structural ones.

makes you feel like your job is the only one he is working on, even though you absolutely know that it is not the case. We all hear nightmares about contractor problems, but I know many people who have used
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and none of us have had that experience.
we've since had to do touch up and/or other work at the house, and
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
has either made himself available directly or allowed us to work direct with his subs without

I recommend

without hesitation.

He used workers from LaborReady to perform the first floor framing and installing of plywood subfloor. He refused to let them do a nice floor leveling job and refused to make corrections in the framing. For example his guys installed floor joists not per the plan resulting in longer spans and spongier floor framing. The first floor was over 1-1/4 inches out of level in places when we turned the job over to a competent framer and got
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
the Framer off the job. He refused to pay us the overpayment of about $30,000 .
His State license is under "Probation" which we learned unfortunately after signing him on, that he is not allowed to bring anyone other than himself onto a jobsite. On top of that he demanded a bogus $10,000 price increase for negligible changes in the framing plan, which a competent framer judged to be equal to or less cost to frame than the original design, While
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
the Framer claimed the minor revisions should cost another $10,000 to do, the competent framer offered to do them and eventually did them for the same price.
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
the Framer also tried to claim other costs to justify running away with about $30,000 in overpaid funds.

We hired
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Builders to do the full hardscape project of our new home from phase one. Throughout this time our contractor made sure to incorporate our needs and desires into his plan concept being very considerate of staying within our budget. He walked us through every step of the planning phases making sure that we understood every detail of his proposed concept. He was very open to hearing our thoughts and making any changes necessary to pleasing us. All our plans were carefully thought out and done perfectly to meet the codes and regulations of our city's landscape review board.
The work was done with great integrity and professionalism. All the plans and documents were delivered in an organized and timely manner so we would have no delays. We sought out

This is the second bath remodel that Pristine has done for us. The job was done well, on time and we are extremely satisfied. If you want a hassle free experience this is it.
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
will suggest and help you with time and fixtures. Because he knows the vendors you don't have any trouble with delivery etc. If there are problems he will take care of it. The tile is beautiful. They completely rearranged the footprint of the bathroom to take out a door to the outside that we never used, which allowed us to make a much larger shower.
Los Angeles Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had suggested this...it cost more but was completely worth it. Workers are on time, very competent and clean up everything.
