San Jose Remodeling Contractors Reviews

"We met the brothers at the Home and Garden Show and took up their offer for a free consultation. They made a good impression at the show with printouts of excellent online reviews, before and after pictures, and of course their credentials. We had been toying with the idea of taking up some remodeling projects, and took up their offer for a free consultation.
They were very good with reminders and encouraged us to keep the appointment when we had second thoughts. So we went with it.

visited us. We showed him our home, which included the guest bedroom downstairs, and started talking about our needs and wish lists. Before we could complete, he said we really needed a master bedroom on downstairs. We thanked him for his advice and said we were happy with the one upstairs. And tried to steer the conversation towards our needs, which were around our living space, and definitely did not include adding a master bedroom. But he kept going back and tried to convince us that that's what we really needed - resale value, Jacuzzi, luxury living, et
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. After some time, it was clear that he was not interested in knowing what our needs were and only wanted to sell his vision of what our home should be.
So, we thanked him. And will go with someone else.

"Got to watch each step of the way and they were very receptive to any comments I made. The kitchen is very modern now and the cabinets were built to my specifications. They look great. Bathrooms very updated and I love my deep soaker tub. Ran into a few problems with space in the bathroom and what i wanted but they were able to research and come up with tub and toilet that would meet code. Very clean and respective of my home and cleaned up each day before leaving as we lived in the house during remodel. They have been back a few times for water damage (not their fault) and other construction/handyman jobs that I needed to get done. They built an overhang outside my back door and it is 12 years old already and will outlive my house. They are very courteous and prompt in all that they do. I love these guys.

"As a result of a residential burglary, I needed significant repairs to my front door and based on my past projects with
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, they were my "go-to" team. I was able to schedule an assessment of the repair the day after the break-in and the team (
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
A and
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
H) were able to fully secure the damaged door until the actual replacement began a week later. I am appreciative that the repair aligned with time-off that I had scheduled over the holiday, and total project was completed two weeks after the initial incident. The door repair was completed in one day, with a separate day necessary for exterior stucco finishing.
Early this year, I completed a separate project with this team that involved repouring a concrete garage floor, the R&R of existing cabinets and the installation of sink and counter cabinet in the garage. The overall experience and the results very satisfying and that directly contributed to my decision on the door repair.

has also completely remodeled our kitchen, family room, living and dining areas in 2005, and then a couple of years ago remodeled our hall bath into a designer magazine worthy spa bath with a rain shower walk in shower, spa bath with another shower head, gorgeous granite sink and toilet area. The whole thing is handicap accessible, but you would never know! Lots of oohs and aahs for all of these remodels and the designs have served us very well with no problems, even 8 years after the kitchen was done! It still looks brand new.

was very helpful in the planning phase and helped design our kitchen layout and cabinets, as well as our master bathroom. She was also extremely helpful when it came time to start picking finishes. She totally understood our style and helped us narrow down design options. In addition, she was not afraid to let us know when she felt that we may be making choices that we could regret. We greatly valued her opinions and support!
We had bought an older home that needed a lot of updating and improvement, so the job was quite big. Luckily, we were not living in the home during the remodel. However, we stopped by to check the progress at least a couple of times per week and were always impressed that the workers cleaned up after themselves each day and stored their tools even though they knew we weren't living there. Whenever we did see the workers, they were always pleasant and courteous.
About mid-way through the project,
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's foreman leading up our project left the company. This caused some delays, but the new foreman,
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, was even better than the first and did everything he could to help make up for lost time. We had told
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
from the beginning that he could take his time because we weren't in any hurry to move in (we were living at my father's house so that I could take care of him until he passed away from cancer). The project was completed about 2 months behind schedule, but we had added some work to the original scope and wanted
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to take his time to make sure everything was done exactly how we wanted it.
We have now lived in our home for about 3 months. After we moved in we began to notice certain issues and defects and kept a running list of items to be fixed.

sent his crew back out about a month ago and fixed everything on our list with great attention to detail. We could not be any happier with our "new" (old) home!
We have worked with other contractors on smaller projects at our previous homes before and they always quoted us much lower, but the final bill was much higher and the quality of the work was lacking. We paid
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
exactly what he originally quoted us and are very happy with the results. We would highly recommend
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
for his professionalism, attention to detail, and passion for his work. He is an honest person and demands the same level of honesty and quality from his crew.

was there personally to kick the project off and make sure that the plan we had put in place was being executed just the way we wanted it. We reviewed the scope of work and off they went. Gates were removed and in came the bobcat to make quick work of the re grading that removed several yards of dirt. The area was prepped quickly in just a few days and we were pouring concrete. The stamping and color came our great. We are so proud of the new concrete patio. It looks amazing. The pavers and fire pit were next and were completed just as quickly and are the new center piece of the entire yard. Sod and a small retaining wall were all that was left to complete this awesome project. The bathroom work occurred at the same time and was completed with the same level of attention to detail as the rest of the project. We could not be happier with our choice of H&J to perform this work.

We elected not to pursue our remodel with them as, from a design or aesthetic point of view we really didn't click. Our visions for what we wanted to do with our home and

"Our service was great, we finished on time with only a few bumps in the road. We first had to take down a load bearing wall that divided the kitchen and the living room and put in a 24 foot header. They then pulled up the old kitchen flooring and matched the hardwood floor that we have in the rest of the house. All of the drywall had to be taken down, and they re-insulated and added new drywall. They put up the cabinets and countertops (which they built from slabs) and put up a backsplash. This all took about 8 weeks, which was around the original estimate. Considering we were camped out in our room for the duration, it went as well as I can imagine.

Pools is currently remodeling my pool and backyard, and picking them for the job and trusting what they said was the biggest mistake. Today, I filed a complaint with the Contractors State License Board to hopefully come to a financial settlement for the work that has been done and to nullify the contract for remaining work....more /> My goal was to remodel the pool, including re-plumbing, new equipment, tile, coping, decking and get the pool to pass final inspection (previous owner had never closed the permits). There were also some plaster cracks that need repair and a patio remodel with new travertine pavers.
I met with Ed
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
in August. He was punctual, friendly and helpful. I told Ed about the pool permit situation, and he said it was not a problem since they have an account with the SJ Building Dept and would either reopen the existing permit or open a new one. In either case, he would give me the receipt to pay the permit costs back to
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Pools. Wow. That seems straightforward. He provided me an estimate for the job within a day. The only problem was that some details were missing from the estimate/contract and when I tried to get the details added to the contract and questioned $2600 of additional material costs not on the contract that they said I might have to pay, they stopped responding to me. I figured that they were either too busy or lost interest in the job, so I started gathering other estimates, but in retrospect, this was a major red flag.
Fast forward one month.
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Pools had loaned me some samples back in August, and I wanted to do the right thing by returning them, so I stopped by their office.
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, their Customer Relations employee apologized for not responding and was surprised that Ed had not returned my call. She said that Ed would be there shortly, and perhaps we could work things out. Ed showed up and assured me that he would make sure everything is done right. After all, his family name is on the business, and they have a reputation to uphold. He would even come out and remeasure the yard before the paver order is put in to ensure the right amount of material is ordered and I wouldn't be stuck with extra material. Wow. It sounded like excellent customer service.
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
put me on the calendar with a start date of 9/26. The contract was signed and sent back by email immediately. Two days before work was to begin,
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
emailed me that they bumped us off the schedule because our contract went to their spam email and another customer had sent in a contract with their deposit, so they get first priority. We were not happy, so after we protested, they said they would start 1 day late, on 9/27. Workers showed up the first 4 days, then stopped coming.
The following weeks were similar. Show up one day, not show for a few days. The demo work that was supposed to be done by 10/1 was still being done on 10/24. One of their workers hit my air conditioner condenser and tried to cover it up and did not tell us. Ed did send one of his buddies over to check out the damage, and he said it was only cosmetic. Great. Now I have a new air conditioner with a
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
in it. They also gouged my fence with their tractor, did not tell us and have not offered to fix it. When they were digging up the pool deck, they dug up my existing pool light conduit, and it was rusted out. Did they tell me about it? NO! My pool light still worked, so I was planning on just retrofitting the system with
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
lights, but after demo, my sub panel was torn out and the light wiring buried.
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
offered to send someone over on 10/19 to take a look at it and provide some guidance, but no one showed up. When I asked her about it later, she said that they knew the light was corroded (I guess they can see through concrete), and I should have paid them $2600 for a new light. I had already purchased the
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
lights, so I was stuck with doing the work myself, with no offer of advice or even an estimate to complete what I was trying to do.
I finally had a meeting with Ed on 10/15, and he apologized and said that he would fix it and things would be smoother after demo was finished.
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave us a new schedule on 10/17, but within 2 days, workers were not showing up again. I finally asked for a project completion date, since we were originally told the project was only to take 4-6 weeks, and we were through week 3 with about 1 week of actual work done.
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
argued with me about providing a completion date, but eventually told me the new completion date was now 11/23. When I asked about the permits, thinking I needed to pay
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Pools for the permit costs, she said they did not pull permits and if I wanted them, I had to pay another $2000 for plans, then pay all permit costs. She also said that she had left messages for a building department person, but he had not responded, and she refused to go down to the building department. I told her we should not move to the next stage of the job (tile/coping) until the permits were resolved and the end date was in writing. I don't want to spend money on a pool that could be red tagged by the city and have all the work removed. Apparently, she does not see the logic in this. I tried contacting Ed
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to get this resolved through email and multiple phone calls over the past two weeks, but he has not responded at all, and conversations with
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
go nowhere.
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
later called to say that our pool coping had come in, but it was the wrong color. She insisted that I come into their office to confirm this or the project would be further delayed. So, even though the job was on hold, I went to their office and confirmed that indeed it was wrong. She also sent emails with pictures of the travertine tiles and did stop by my house the next day to show me the correct color, but based on her emails it appears she ordered or will order the travertine without Ed measuring the yard, as he originally promised back in September.
I told
San Jose Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
via email that I need to speak with Ed and have sent emails to Ed and left phone messages, but I have received no response. In summary, I would highly recommend hiring someone else if you have a pool to remodel. I regret that I ever became involved with the Padillas. It has been an incredible amount of stress and waste of time, and I can only hope it will be resolved by the State soon.

"SOD were very responsive when we asked them for an estimate. Their estimate was inline with competitors. We didn't choose to go with SOD in the end, as we changed our plans. But I would recommend them for other people to try out."
