    A Quality Construction
    We wanted to sell our house and our agent recommended us to remodel completely the bathrooms at the house which gave us a tight deadline for that (only two weeks) bathrooms remodeling. We contacted several companies and at the end, we went with A quality construction since they guaranteed to complete the work within our deadlines and our research on them revealed that they are extremely reliable. Colin was our project manager and he made sure that the work will start the following day and that the crew will complete the daily tasks while focusing on the quality of the work. The bathrooms were completed within the time frame and we want to thank A Quality construction for the hard work that was done! They gave us a great quality results.

    SOD Home Group
    We hired SOD builders to do a complete kitchen remodeling and enlarge the existing space by expanding the walls several feet to the patio area. The new kitchen included the installation of the upper and lower cabinets, new paint, new backsplash, marble counter top, LED lighting and new dishwasher, stove and range. Allen, the project manager and Shirael (the lady that we worked with in regards to all the documents, payments and permits) from the office who did an outstanding job helping us. During the work, we clearly noticed that they were always made sure that the costs will remain the same and won���t pass the budget that was set at first and they made sure the job was done accurately. All the sub-contractors that they employed for our house (carpenters, electricians, painters etc.) were outstanding, qualified and experienced. We were very fascinated that our project Allen was able to complete the entire kitchen few days earlier than he promised us. We were always given a personal attention by Allen, who was very good in communication and organized and by Shirael. The new kitchen looks perfect and very useful and we strongly recommend them and we will hire them again for any remodeling project we may have.

    Feraru & Associates Building & Design Inc
    The architect reviewed scope of work and was paid for 2,5 hours leaving w/o statement of next steps. I sent communication to Mr feraru about what the next step to getting bid and starting process. And clarify that his website said initial visit was free. He replied that he wanted to clarify that he wasn't able to do the project. I was stunned and said he should have said this up front and I wouldn't have even had design architect come. I let him know that communication was very unprofessional and money was spent for absolutely nothing. All other companies completed free initial meetings with bid or that they could not start in timeline up front.

    Homeworx Construction & Plumbing
    When I first tried to initiated contact with Chuck,the owner, his mailbox was full and I was unable to reach him. Eventually we made contact and he said he would send two guys. The curtain rod I wanted installed went up with no problem but it took over an hour for them to figure out the refrigerator door needed another part in order to complete job - which was not finished. The first handyman seemed to know what he was doing but his partner spent a lot of time tinkering around and didn't seem to quite know how to do the job. He seemed more interested in socializing with me, asking personal questions and looking around than working. He also reeked of stale alcohol which concerned me. I set up a second appointment with Chuck himself because I had much more work that I needed done that I wanted to discuss- he was 20 minutes late to this appointment.. This was potentially a several thousand dollar job for him - resealing floors, installing a new bathroom vanity and tub, installing molding along my staircase and a sliding door for the kitchen among other jobs. Hesaid he would get a quote to me the following day via email and I set up a follow up appointment with his handyman to address the refrigerator. I never received the quote. I waited for the handyman to show for our appointment. After 15 minutes and no sign of him, I called Chuck. Chuck didn't seem to know if I had an appointment or not. He told me he had just rolled out of bed as he was in Disneyland on vacation. He checked and said oh yeah the guy will be there in twenty minutes. I told him to forget it. Being 40 minutes late for an appointment, and the previous lateness is completely unprofessional and disrespectful of me and my time. Obviously, they are in no need of new business or referrals if this is the way he operates. I have taken my business elsewhere.

    Re-Bath By Schicker

    The entire experience with Rebath was very satisfying from the in-home consultation to the final walk-through. At all times Rebath was very accommodating, courteous, and punctual. I was very happy with their work for all the right reasons: customer service, both over the phone and in my home; work crew punctuality and cleanliness; quality of the work; and the integrity of the service representative. I had one issue: my curving retractable shower rod was damaged on installation. I was leaving the country the following weekend and we had to reschedule the repair 6 weeks in advance. Rebath honored their commitment to replace the curtain rod without question and without delay six weeks later even though I had already paid the majority of the bill. All of this alone would make me use them again but there is one more intangible that makes me eager to write this review. They worked me in because of my need to have my remodel done before I left the country. I have a very, very small bathroom and I am sure my job was more of an annoyance to them than an important project since my job was scheduled during their busiest season. But, they treated my house with all the respect and care as if it was their most important project. That kind of commitment from a large company means a great deal to me.

    If I had another bathroom, I would use no one else for the remodel.

    Sorin and his team have just completed a ton of dry rot work to clear
    the pest report on our recently purchased 1925 stucco house in Albany, CA.
    Having dry rot removed and repaired is not the kind of house project
    one looks forward to, but Sorin made the process run smoothly and
    efficiently.  What does one look for in a good contractor?  I want a
    contractor who is knowledgeable, professional, a good communicator,
    timely, and can get estimated work done within budget and on time.  I
    also want a contractor who can manage a team of workers who are good at
    what they do, show up on time, work hard, are respectful of property and
    people, and keep the work space neat.   Sorin and his team met and
    exceeded my expectations.  It was truly a pleasure to work with him and
    when budget allows, we plan to have him back to complete seismic work as
    well as remove our chimney, which is pulling away from the house.  
    I've already recommended Feraru and Associates to two neighbors and will
    rely on him for any future work done to our house -- his team seems to
    do it all!

    Jerry's Jamb And Door Construction
    It went very well.  Jerry Stone (owner of Jerry?s Jamb and Door Construction) and his son, Jared, worked together on the job and were finished in four days ? three, if you don't count the one day in between when I painted the drywall before the cultured marble was installed.  They both were very nice, friendly, and professional, and took the time to answer all of my many questions.
    Some reasons why I was impressed by Jerry?s Jamb and Door Construction:
    ? When Jerry scoped out the project to work up an estimate, he explained everything that would need to be done.  He talked about the different phases of the project, what would happen during each phase, how long each phase would take, and when in the process inspections would need to happen.

    ? Jerry told me that to save his clients money, he has them deal directly with his subcontractors (in my case, the cultured marble people) to see samples, choose colors, make payments, etc., rather than be the go-between and add an extra 5-10% to his bill.
    ? Jared replumbed the pipes to accommodate the new single-handle valve. The finished job was not only secure and did not leak, but was a piece of art.  I can say the same for their fence work.  After Jerry and Jared were finished with the fence, it was structurally sound and trimmed out to look better than the original ? before it had fallen into disrepair.
    ? I asked Jerry about installing a tube-type skylight in my bathroom, but after he took a look at the roof, he said he wouldn?t do it.  The main reason being that there is already a bathroom fan vent, a bathroom plumbing vent, a whirly-bird attic vent, and another tube-type skylight in the same section of the roof where the bathroom skylight would need to go, and he was not willing to put an additional 10-inch hole up there and create a potential risk for leaks later on.
    ? When Jerry scoped out the project, he told me they would leave the bathroom in useable condition at the end of each day, especially since it was the only bathroom in the house.  He was true to his word.  Although I couldn't use the shower, Jerry and Jared left the bathroom and tub clean enough to bathe in every evening.
    ? Also, when Jerry scoped out the project, he told me he would lay down tarps inside the house where they?d be walking while they did the job.  And they did.  On the days they were taking out the tile and putting in the new drywall, they laid tarp over the carpet and floors before they began work.  After the cultured marble was installed and they returned to put in the tub/shower fixtures, they put tarp over the carpet and wore disposable shoe covers to protect my wood floors.
    ? Jerry and Jared were very careful not to damage the tub or the surrounding walls when they were demolishing the tub/shower surround.
    ? I was concerned about my neighbor?s wisteria, which over the years had grown through and over the old fence.  I asked Jerry to preserve as much of the wisteria as he could when rebuilding the fence, knowing he might have to cut it down entirely (I had discussed this possibility with my neighbor who was fine with losing the plant should it come to that since the fence was in such disrepair).  However, Jerry not only did not cut it down, he wove the new fence boards through the wisteria where the old fence boards had been, preserving the entire plant.
    ? My dad wanted my old fence boards so when taking down the fence, Jerry agreed to save the boards and take them to my father?s house rather than just haul them away.  Jerry and Jared not only saved the salvageable boards, but also removed the nails before delivering the boards to my parents.
    ? I only replaced the valve trim in my tub/shower during this renovation, keeping the old tub spout, shower pipe, and showerhead.  When it became necessary to replace the original escutcheon for the shower pipe, Jerry and Jared chose one that matched the style of the new tub/shower valve trim.
    ? At the end of each day, in addition to leaving the bathroom in useable condition, if they left anything outside, like fence boards or their garbage cans for debris, they left them neatly stacked to the side, or otherwise out of the way.  They also swept up.

    I am very happy with Jerry?s Jamb and Door Construction.  Their craftsmanship is beautiful, their work solid, and their attention to detail is outstanding. I especially appreciate their professionalism, honesty, integrity, and tidiness.  I would definitely ask them back for other projects.

    locon construction
    Paul was great to work with-he handled all the permits and inspections and sub contract with plumber and got the bathroom ready for the holidays in plenty of time.  The price included everything needed for the job with quality materials and fixtures.  Paul did most of the work himself, and took the time to meet me at the tile store and Home Depot to pick out fixtures.His crew and subcontractor were on-time and  they worked fast, and left the area and hallways clean each day and removed all debris from the site quickly.  Am hoping to install a new full bathroom in my basement and will use Paul Holland again.
