About Us

  • on Angie's List for 10 years
Acme Builders Incorporated is a full service general contracting company. We take pride in attention to details. We answer email promptly. We're not a huge company and to tell the truth, don't want to get too large. We have 4 employees and on small projects, we do almost everything in-house, but the larger the project, the more we subcontract in order to get your project done in a timely manner. We try as much as possible to do just one project at a time, and the owner is on site pretty much every day. In the vernacular of this high finance corporate world, we're a Mom and Pop shop. We are licensed with CSLB #926393 bonded and insured. (Actually we used to have a lower license number but got a new license number when we incorporated). The owner was fortunate enough to learn the fine tradition of carpentry under the gruff sharp eyes of older East coast master carpenters. He started on high end custom homes an worked on affordable housing projects. After a couple of years of this he moved to Boston and did commercial projects, from laboratories at MIT to retail shops downtown. He then moved to a heavy equipment operation, doing pipeline and infrastructure projects. This was followed by an all to brief period of working for an engineering company in Hawaii, and then it was grad school and almost a decade of totally different stuff, from journalism to interactive programming to the seemingly inevitable dot com web times. We bought a fixer upper Victorian and, well, fixing up stuff is kind of fun. And it's meaningful work. We pride ourselves on having the best equipment. Even jaded building inspectors have commented on it. We are tool junkies and all incoming employees are asked to show up at their interview with their tools. The quality and condition of a journeyman's tools tell you a lot about their work. For most projects we give free estimates and don't charge any initial service fees. And to tell you the truth, we really love catching homeowners when they are still planning their project. We can help you pick an architect or draftsman, an engineer, and even project financing, and help you through the challenges of zoning and building permits. If you are thinking about a kitchen or bath remodel in particular please email us and we'll send you our planning checklists. If you mention Angie's List we'll give you $100 (or 10% if the project is under $1000) off. We have 4 employees and on small projects, we do alomst everything in-house, but the larger the proejct, the more we subcontract in order to get your project done in a timely manner.
