Remodel went very well. I am somewhat indecisive and
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was very helpful in offering inexpensive, creative solutions to design challenges. I added several small tasks to the job and he cheerfully completed them with minimal extra charges.

I was very happy with the work
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
performed. From the very start,
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
(owner) was very responsive during the bidding phase. He was always on top of things and would be very prompt to respond to questions or changes. We went with
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
because 1. Positive feedback from other owners that he performed work for 2. His responsiveness and knowledge about construction 3. Comprehensive estimate that included all of the details about what is covered for the price & 4. Competitive price
We were planning on 6 months to complete the project. We remained in the house during that time. His crew was very good about setting up sections of plastic to allow us to remain in parts of the house. Another thing i liked about
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is that he has a large crew of direct employees so he can control the pace of the job. Our project ended up completing 2 months ahead of schedule.
I am very pleased with the quality of work. If something was not performed up to
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's expectations, he would have it redone. His team were very friendly and conscientious. This was important because we were living in the house during the construction.
I would highly recommend
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for any of your construction or remodeling needs.

This Man,
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
painted my next door neighbors house on East
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Ave, in Carlsbad CA in May of 2013. He and his equipment
"peppered" (not over spray) my house with paint. Neighbor gave him my
number to call to arrange repairs.
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
did not call me but proceeded...More /> to paint my house, wall and trim without permission with paint that did
not match. I contacted him and told him to stop and decease all
activities on my home. He did not, he jumped a six fence with a locked
gate to continue to cover his tracks. A police report was filed. The
company does not have a California C33 license, no insurance, and are
totally dishonest. Do not hire them.

Hired
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
on 1/21 after his submission of a bid proposal for a sizable list of home improvement projects at our new home in Carlsbad.
The relationship began in a professional manor and
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was prompt in his replies. Things quickly began to change as initial timelines that were agreed upon were blown. Three weeks into the job he simply stopped making progress, after payment was made in full. Questions have continuously been met with excuses about scheduling delays, material delays, etc.
At this point we have asked for a partial refund. After starting in January, we're into early April and the job remains unfinished. we've since hired another contractor to complete the work and are awaiting to hear a response on the request for a portion of our payment back. I will updated accordingly if we find an amicable resolution.

The concrete came out fine. They were prompt. We had some serious customer service issues, but in the end, they fixed their mistakes.

Our experience started with the bid process, and we were immediately impressed by the responsiveness and courtesy we received. The project manager (
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
) and the design architect (
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
) arrived on time, and had already gone to the City to obtain information about our property lines, set backs, and provided us with a professional folder with their company information, their current certificate of insurance, and our property information. Very professional. We interviewed 2 other contractors and decided
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was best for our budget and needs. I checked their references, (2 past customers and one current - after all, you want to see how they are doing DURING construction), and all three were extremely pleased. So away we went. Another huge factor in our decision was the fact that their design team is in-house. Their architect,
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, was extremely helpful, patient, offered wonderful suggestions, incorporated our wishes into a design plan we were very happy with. We even changed our minds on a few details and not once did they complain about having to change the plans. The customer service was set at a very high bar from the get go. He would even come to my office to review changes and finalize the plans, which was very convenient. They provided a construction schedule which let us know which trades would be coming in during the process so we could plan ahead. Our particular contract allowed us to purchase all the fixtures (flooring, lighting, bath vanities, toilets, bath fixtures, tile, paint colors, etc.) and they would always let us know when we had to have certain items ahead of time, which helped with our budget as well. The demolition crew was quick, efficient and very neat. They parked a dumpster in our driveway and a portapotty as well for the contractors to use. There were no issues whatsoever with either. At the end of the day you couldn't tell they had been there except for what they had demo'd. Then came the concrete guys with prepping the foundation, and pouring the footings and new foundation - it was a beautifully smooth finished product. Even the neighbors were impressed. Then came the framers, who did a super job, always confirming any questions they might have, always making sure to leave the house broom swept, and always very considerate. They even built our custom fireplace and installed a great skylight in our walk-in closet. The plumbers and electricians followed and they were extremely professional and knowledgeable as well. When we changed our minds about anything in particular, they too would offer suggestions and their work was first class. They even put up with my husband's tinkering with installing a custom steam shower and they just worked around him and offered suggestions for him as well. The roofer was able to locate our exact concrete roof tiles, even though they had been discontinued and we were facing the possibility of a different color new roof. Again, we were very impressed. The drywall and stucco crews came through and did a great job, all walls beautifully straight and the taping and texture matched our existing house such that you cannot tell where the old house and new house started and stopped. Now THAT's good. Their tile guy (
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
) and finished carpenter (
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
), did a superb job with our bath tile and custom walk-in shower, bath tile flooring, hard wood flooring and all our trim and casing work around our windows and doors. They were meticulous - really beautiful work.
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, their foreman, was there almost every day taking care of all the details, finished painting, installation of all the hardware, mirrors, towel bars, touch-up paint, picking up flooring and tile for us, working around us and being as polite and professional as could be. We are extremely pleased with how the remodel turned out and would recommend
Carlsbad Home Builders Provider Name Locked
in a heart beat. They communicated very well with us during the process and made the payment plan very efficient and seamless. Our friends and neighbors couldn't believe how quickly the job went, how minimaly disruptive the project was, how nice the remodel turned out, how courteous the crews were, and how clean they kept the construction area and yard area. Do yourself a favor and call these guys, you won't be disappointed.
