I recently used Preferred Home Builders to renovate my small house, and was extremely pleased with their work. Im not sure how their prices compare to others, but they were open about costs and warned me to expect costs associated with change orders. I interviewed other general contractors, but found only PHB both professional and personable. They were amenable to my getting other quotes for aspects of the work: I had my own workers for the shower door and painting, but otherwise used all the Preferred crews. The kitchen and bathroom needed to be completely re-worked, and Ran helped me design spaces that work beautifully and are very attractive. I had an idea of what I wanted, but he added the practical to it, and informed me of the requisites. He also planned the space on the computer (several renditions), so I could see it in 3D. He managed to keep the spaces true enough to their 1923 roots, while making them work for 21st century needs: For instance, he suggested enclosing the light and exhaust fan in the existing space above my old Wedgwood stove, so that it is unobtrusive, and the stove seems to stand on its own in its original niche. He knew I loved that setting, had obviously been thinking about it on his own, and had come up with this very practical and responsive idea. The bathroom is a tiny space, and was very eccentrically laid out by the previous owner. The new layout makes use of what little space there is efficiently, and the end result is lovely. I discovered that the wiring and plumbing needed to be completely re-done; the wiring was original to the house, and I was not comfortable with it. My only dismay with Preferred is that they did the rewiring, but did not include the re-plastering of the holes they had made, since they were not doing the painting. I am told by others that this is normal, since they were not doing the painting, but I continue to think it should have been part of the re-wiring. However, they were upfront about it, so I really cant complain. The plumbing in the bathroom literally crumbled when it was touched, so I redid the whole house. Preferred not only handled the permits, as they did for all the construction, but kept on top of the city, so that they would do the inspection sooner than they had planned. Edoe is the project manager, and manages to put together the pieces so that they fall into place one by one, an admirable ability for an exacting task. Except for city inspections, which occasionally held things up, there was very little waiting around for the next phase of the work to get going. And the various crews were pleasant, respectful, and cleaned up after themselves. The house has many quirks, such as un-plumb walls, and Preferred made accommodations for them so that they are not noticeably askew. When I had concerns about any detail, Ran and Edoe saw that it was corrected; they wanted me to be satisfied with the results, and I am (as you might be able to tell). Recently, one of my circuit breakers tripped, and I could not get the new breaker box open. I dont yet have my own electrician, so I called Preferred and Edoe took the time to call the electrician who had installed it, call me back, and walk me through the safety mechanism, so that I could re-engage the circuit. I didnt feel any hesitation or reluctance from Edoe, just a quick response to the dilemma. Thats service with a genuine smile! I will use them again if I do any other work, and highly recommend them.Oct 27, 2018Review from GooglePreferred Home Builders's reply
Hi Marantha - Thank you for taking the time to provide such a detailed review. It would be our pleasure to assist with any future remodeling needs. Bye for now. The PHB Team.
I had the pleasure of hiring PHB to build an master bathroom and closet for my home. Their attention to detail, speed, and quality of work exceeded my expectations. They accomplished this all while staying at the quoted budget they gave me has reinforced the certainty I have in using them for any future job I have in the future. If you are doing any major work to your home I highly recommend working with PHB!Nov 28, 2019VerifiedPreferred Home Builders's reply

Thanks for the great feedback and review. The door does look amazing. We look forward to working with you guys again in the future.
Preferred and it's project managers - Itay and Michelle - managed our 2 bathroom remodels and extensive interior and exterior painting in a professional manner. We always knew what was happening and when. Their crews always showed up when scheduled and did high quality work. We are extremely pleased with the finished project and have already recommended Preferred to others.Dec 11, 2019
I hired Preferred Home Builders to remodel my kitchen. They not only did a superb job but also did it in the time they had quoted me, despite some last minute changes I requested. Great Job! I plan to use them again in the future.Jan 22, 2019Review from GooglePreferred Home Builders's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our pricing is project -based, meaning that we provide a price based on a scope of work and project specifications that we review with you. Our goal is to be as accurate and detailed as possible to ensure that the price does not change as the project progresses avoiding extra fees.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It begins with a phone consultation where we gain a general understanding of the project. The next step is an on-site visit to your home or job site, where we work with you, going through a more detailed approach of the project. The result is a detailed 3D rendering of the proposed project. Once approved, we build a detailed scope of work based on our discussions and design work. This will then be used to provide and estimate of the project work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have over 23 years of industry experience as a B-licensed contractor in California. As the business owner, I have extensive experience in all facets of the residential construction field, ranging from small bathroom remodels to brand new construction of fully-customized homes.
