I had the whole house exterior completely painted. Carlos's crew made this experience easy, and hassle free. I don't give 5 stars very often, but Carlos's crew deserved 5 stars. Their painting skills were very good. The complete job came out beautiful. I could not be happier.Dec 12, 2016VerifiedContemporary Design Builders Inc's reply

Drywall Installation and Hanging
The original estimate on when our project would be done was not held to by two weeks. They also did not finish the project and drilled a hold in the wrong place in one of our brand new cabinet drawers when putting the knob handle on. When I showed Carlos he noticed me painting an old night stand a totally DIFFERENT gray color than our new cabinets and when I showed him the hole his workers drilled he asked if I had any extra paint from that to cover it!!!! I was in SHOCK, I said " no, it's not even the same gray!! Almost had our granite island an entire foot off because his cabinet guys again just didn't want to take the time to measure and I had to point out that it wasn't aligned where it needed to be and asked the guy to measure with a measuring tape and when he did, he clearly saw that. We bought a microwave/hood vent for above our stove and they did not cut into the cabinet before installing which is RIDICULOUS being that is necessary in order for it to VENT! We had to have the cabinet workers of Carlos come back to reattach our cabinets doors the correct way because half of the kitchen cabinets were aligned with the bottom of the cabinets and the other half was an entire inch off. Also, something that was a HUGE issue for us was we were leaving for a trip and was asked by Carlos if the workers could install the cabinets while we were gone and we agreed. We were told by Carlos there would be a Lockbox with our key in it and the workers would have the code... THAT WAS A LIE! He gave his worker (some random stranger) our key to our home and we asked for It multiple times before we got it back. Now the house had to be completely re-keyed thanks to that, which to me is not ok in any way and very unprofessional. We were suppose to have our dishwasher grounded/installed NEVER DID THAT either. THEN in the end he had the NERVE to ask for $400 more dollars 🤦🏻♀️ Carlos never returned our phone call after that to fix it, we literally just haven't gotten a return call. Working with Carlos was not a fun experience but we will say the first guys who came to do the drywall Israel,his father and brother were FANTASTIC! We would work with them again but Carlos NEVER again.Sep 6, 2017VerifiedContemporary Design Builders Inc's reply
Hi Sophia, thank you for your feedback, but what you said is not shocking and not true. There are some misunderstandings in our communication. For the cabinet, we did our best to restore the little scratch. It is common in remodeling something might get scratched. For the key, our guys are trustworthy and we would not give just any random stranger your key as we are liable if you got stolen. The dishwasher installation is not in the scope of work we discussed originally. If you have any further questions or problems, please give us a call anytime. Our job is to have happy customers. Thanks.
He came to check on the work and give us quote same day. Our old dishwasher was leaking under the sink... My husband thinks he did a great job with removing moldy pieces of cabinets and replacing them with new wood.Jun 2, 2018Verified

Francisco, thank you so much for choosing Contemporary Design Builders Inc. for your landscaping work. We appreciate your business a lot. Glad to work with you.
I flip homes in the North County. I have worked with Carlos for nearly 3 years on a number of custom remodeling projects when flipping homes. He is easy to work with and his guys are skilled. They are not the type of contractors who will rip you off. They work around my budget and Carlos's guys deliver quality work. I'm happy that I found them.Mar 30, 2017VerifiedContemporary Design Builders Inc's reply
