Browse these insulation contractors with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in El Cajon.
When many of the other contractors I contacted were not interested in doing our job because they considered it too small, Jose didn't hesitate to give us a fair price and follow up with professional work. The job required replacing about 30 sg ft of concrete and matching the surrounding concrete rock finish. I was a little concerned that matching might be hard to do, but Jose found the right color, size of rock and the result turned out great.
Insulation in garage ceiling & creation of storage space in ceiling area of garage. Antonio arrived early; stayed late until project was completed. Good clean up afterwards. Fair in pricing
Brandon met me at Lowes at 8:30am to pick up supplies. We got to my house around 09:15. He fixed a broken kitchen cabinet. He painted my bathroom including the trim around the window. He hung a Venetian blind in my 2nd bdrm. He replaced my old toilet with a new and improved version. All four of these tasks were part of the estimate. Brandon also unclogged my bathroom sink-not part of the estimate- he just did it. Brandon was finished around 3:45pm. He knew all the tricks that help a contractor save time, but still get the job done correctly. I am extremely happy with the results and definitely will be using Brandon for future jobs. Thanks Brandon! Mark Gonzales
We received information that our shower would require some updating due the deteriorating nature of its foundation. The tile was also very old and not cosmetically pleasing. So we took this as an opportunity to update the shower and its tile, and also replace the old vanity and mirror. Not a huge job, but certainly a tedious one due to the install of the tile. We received quotations from other contractors; however we decided to go with James at Jamestown Design in the end. Pricing was on par with the other quotes received. Lead time of the project was also equal to what the other contractors had projected. What lead us to our final decision? James gave us a level of confidence, which the other contractors could not match, ensuring that the job would be done to our expectations 100%. The demo of the old shower went flawless. James carefully prepared the surrounding areas by laying down covers over everything, and even including the floor to reduce the amount of debris caused by the demolition. James showed up on time every day and left as quietly as he arrived. Every day he made sure that all of his tools, or whatever that was required for the job, was organized and off to the side & out of the way. As with any job unexpected issues can and will arise. More specifically, there was Black Mold found on one of the walls behind the shower. James brought this to our attention and recommended that we take care of this prior to completing the shower. He priced out the repair accordingly and with our approval he took care of it. James did not suggest anything that was unnecessary – This was certainly appreciated. Our bathroom and shower came out exactly how we wanted. The tile looks amazing and the quality of work is nothing short of exceptional. Apparently James does it all! He also was very helpful when it came to installing new doors in each of the rooms to our house. James is a great honest guy who does great work. We would certainly recommend James to any of our friends/family…And would most certainly have him do another project in our home when that time comes. Look no further than Jamestown Design.
I could not give a higher rating for Abe. This is an extraordinarily kind, honest, hardworking, and likeable guy. He does great work for a good price. He communicated through every step of the process and the end product was wonderful. He did a bunch of misc things for us, including drywall, insulation, and duct work. He is very talented and knows his way around most every trade. Best of all, you can't help but feel comfortable to have him around your home. He is just a great guy and a reliable, affordable option when you don't want to do the work yourself. I'll be hiring him again, that is for sure.
We had Coggins Construction install crown molding in our home. Patrick was very professional throughout the entire process and satisfactorily completed the project under the initial price quote, which was already extemely reasonable. He actually listened to what we wanted and was respectful of our house-things that previous contractors neglected. We would recommend Patrick's services to anyone.
Adam and Mike came to do an assessment of our house and give us an estimation for an insulation work. They were efficient, thorough and very patients (we did have some questions and they took the time to explain everything and answer all of our questions). The price seemed fair as well. Mike came with his crew the following day, they removed and replaced the entire insulation. they were on time, worked quickly and even finished earlier than expected. they were friendly and quiet during the work. We're very happy to have chosen them to do the job, and we're a lifetime customers!
I found Luke Carr Construction on thumbtack when searching for a contractor to paint the trim on our 19 unit complex. Luke did a fantastic job on our property. I've worked with numerous contractors over the years and I have to say I've never found one better than Luke. He takes pride in his work and aims to please the customer. I'm now using him for a bathroom remodel and other projects...he can do it all! Tony Pezze
We have worked with him on several projects ranging from landscaping to flooring and other handyman type projects. He is very professional, punctual and delivers quality work. He documents his process which is very helpful and provides detailed itemized invoices. Working with Jason is a pleasure!!
Remodeled my mom's kitchen after a water leak disaster. Fast, friendly, efficient, prompt service. Great end product. Demo'd old cabinets, drywall, insulation, flooring, subfloor, plumbing, did mold abatement, then replaced all. Also installed beautiful new tile backsplash. Looks great!
Raymond and his team did a very profound job insulating my newly renovated home. His response to my request was very quick and detailed he new exactly what I wanted and got the job done sooner than expected. I definitely would recommend him to anyone who’s looking to upgrade or add insulation to their home!
I needed an odd-sized interior door replaced and a front door repaired. Ron delivered exactly what a contractor should. He: 1) estimated at the work, 2) quoted a very competitive price for labor and materials, and 3) did excellent work on time and on budget. Ron will be the first place I look next time I need repairs made.
Ray drew the plans for a remodel of my home last year. His quote was significantly below that of contractors, his work was accurate, and he followed through on his word. I would use him in the future and recomend you give him a call for your plans.
Because I go the extra mile for my clients
The general contractor is a manager, and possibly a tradesman, employed by the client on the advice of the architect, engineer or the architectural technologist or the client him/herself if acting as the manager. A general contractor is responsible for the overall coordination of a project. A general contractor must first assess the project-specific documents (referred to as bid, proposal or tender documents). In the case of renovations, a site visit is required to get a better understanding of the project. Depending on the project delivery method, the contractor will submit a fixed price proposal or bid, cost plus price or an estimate. The general contractor considers the cost of home office overhead, general conditions, materials and equipment as well as the cost of labor to provide the owner with a price for the project. Contract documents include drawings, project manual (including general, supplementary and/or special conditions and specifications), addendum or modifications issued prior to proposal/ bidding and prepared by a design professional such as an architect. The general contractor may be the construction manager or construction manager at risk.

I take pride in the things I accomplish and dont settle for mediocrity. 17. I have experience managing either small or very large projects with all of the organizational skills and trade knowledge to get the job done. 18. From all of the years of having a renovation company, I have mastered the ability to work in a persons home or office, while they are living there, protecting their items, cleaning up makeshift kitchens while work is being performed. I have foot protectors for the work crew. I instructed all of my employees how to operate in a persons home or office with appropriate behaviour, no smoking, no drinking, no foul language and being conscientious of things around them, safety and leaving things as good or better than they found them, respecting the owners privacy and directing questions to the supervisor rather than interacting with the tenants. Experience: 1. Custom homes 2. Additions 3. Remodels 4. Make ready for homes, apartments and commercial properties 5. Commercial project manager and for my latest project, I ran four trades and up to a 75-man crew to convert 170 luxury apartments into time shares for Wyndham in Mission Valley in San Diego 6.

I presently maintain two commercial buildings in San Diego which take a monthly inspection and doing any maintenance. This results in only a few hours a month. 9. I semi retired in 2007 and have become a specialist, working for developers for code violation corrections. I get the inspectors on our side, take care of the plans and permits, go to any special meetings for project permission and oversee the work to correct the violations and get the owners out of most fines that were attached to the violation. I know all trades in construction and have a thorough knowledge of all codes and exceptions to the codes in the state of California, which are usually tougher than the national codes. I received all of my work by word of mouth from satisfied customers. Some of the projects I have done over the years 1971 to 1978: Work in Europe (England and Holland): A. In London, I renovated a large warehouse to become offices and living quarters in Bromley, Kent. B. In Hollingbourne, England, I replaced dry rot in a 43-room home and oversaw the maintenance of this property and the one in Bromley for a year. C. In Holland, I turned a large farmhouse into a two story commercial property. Work in Europe (Italy): A. I renovated a twenty-seven-room, four-hundred-year old villa on a property called Poggio Secco outside of Grassina (Florence). I was in charge of the project and worked with a 30 to 40-man crew for two years. We installed a heating system that was a copper piping system in concrete floors that heated up the floor itself. We removed over sixty windows and shutter systems form all exterior walls and remade them to match the ones built 100 years ago. We replaced all of the panels and all of the wiring. We replaced all dry rot in the building and replaced hand-hewn beams to match the original. We built a rain catch system for drinking water. We completely replastered all exterior surfaces and had artists repaint murals and window frame vines and family emblems at each window. Gas lines were installed throughout for a propane system and the furnace in the basement. While there, I helped run the cantina and oversaw the harvesting of grapes, olives and fruit trees on the 400 acres that surrounded the villa. B. I spent six months in Rome and built the #4 rated disco in Rome. This was a 10,000-sq.ft. warehouse that we turned into a wine and beer bar and pasta restaurant. I ran this project and had a twenty-man crew I oversaw. C. Numerous other properties were renovated during this time period of 1971 to 1978 in Florence and Portofino over an additional two-and-a-half-year period. These were usually farm houses or animal stalls that we turned into small villas. The reason for this is no new construction was allowed, so if you wanted a new living space, you looked to what was already on a foundation, even if it was a horse barn. I had to work with the Belle Arte in Florence who would come out to inspect the work I did and make sure everything was done properly, down to the right paint color on the newly-built houses, matching what was on the old original houses. Work in Houston, Texas (1978 to 1985 and again in 2009): A. Worked in a cabinet shop as a lead fabricator and became the foreman within a month. B. For five years, I had a shop with a dozen employees, where we built the first mass-produced redwood lattice panels, pre fab gazebos and modular wood decking (my creation) to Sears and most major lumberyards. During this time, I had two companies - Cedar Creations and U.S. Wood. C. Built and remodeled many homes D. Built a mobile home park in Houston, Texas that had 200 spaces, where we began with a dirt lot and made all roads and infrastructures E. Built a 20,000-sq.ft. research facility for A. F. Tubescope Research in Houston, Texas F. In Abilene, Texas, I developed and built a 99-home development. I did all of the permitting and went to the city permitting meetings for approval and development for the project. I built the swimming pool, office, usage room building, all infrastructures. I did privacy fencing and eleven model homes. This was a recent project when I returned to Texas for a year to work for an old employer/developer. This was 2009. Work in Wyoming 2010: A. Reworked pumps and other machinery in six oil wells in Jeffrey City, Wyoming that were drilled in 1929 and only producing one third its potential. We got the six wells up and running to maximum potential and the developer I worked for sold these for millions above his investment. Work in California 1986 to present: A. In 1986, I had the opportunity to relocate to San Diego, California and build three custom homes. Since then, I have built many more custom homes and countless remodels and additions, as well as landscape and hardscape, decks, fencing. B. I converted an apartment complex in Casa de Oro, California into individual condos that sold within a few months of completion. I worked as the main contractor with my crew and numerous subs. Job was done on schedule and within budget. C. I converted two apartment complexes into individual condos, adding a laundry room and second bedroom to each unit. I got all of the permits, licensing, et cetera. I was the supervisor for the contractor/owner of the project. I supervised my own crews and numerous other sub contractors. Job was done ahead of schedule and on budget. Units were luxury units and all sold in less than six months. D. I was the job supervisor building one of the largest Messianic churches in the United States in Calabasas, California. I worked with the crew and subs and obtained all permits and plans. E. I built a water filtration and juice store in Santa Barbara as the first for a chain of stores. This was a $250,000 project, completed in seven weeks and on budget. I did all of the high-tech filtration systems and built a dispensing wall for thirty different juices. F. I was the supervisor on a project converting 171 luxury apartments into Wyndham Timeshares. There was a crew of 48 to 75 people and two shifts. I did four sub contracted trades for the main contractor and owner with Wyndham Timeshares. This was my last commercial project done in 2007 in Mission Hills San Diego, California. G. I built three custom homes for the developer I worked with throughout the years and 27 more luxury homes over a 25-year period for this developer in Texas and California. H. I ran a make-ready, tenant improvement business with Apache Construction for numerous apartment and commercial properties and town home developments for the HOA. I ran this part of the business for five years in San Diego, California. I. I did hundreds of remodel jobs on homes and condos in Texas and California over a thirty-year period. Many of these were done in La Jolla, California. These remodels averaged from $150,000 to $500,000. J. Since 1987, I have had my own business and employees. I ran sales, subs and most phases of the business. K. I worked as an interior designer for many of my customers for whom I built homes and remodeled. This included paint colors, kitchen, bathrooms, wall coverings, flooring, furnishings and art work. Personal information: A. Married forty years, three children and three grandchildren B. I love anything that has to do with the outdoors, hiking, walking, horseback riding. Favorite vacation spots are Mammoth and Colorado and Italy.
