Outstanding Construction is truly outstanding. Kirk did a wonderful job. Hauled away a ton of junk and built a beautiful double gate. He even helped me with some car problems I was having! Very friendly with reasonable prices.
Kirk Castor is great. I contacted him on Saturday and he showed up on Sunday for free estimate. By Monday, he cleaned up my backyard and all done. He was fast and got the job done! I really appreciated his work. Would love to work with him again!
We had Outstanding construction do a full interior remodel (Kitchens/Bathrooms) including landscaping front/rear. Concrete patio and side walkway of my Moms home in Belmont. House was in need of major upgrades throughout.
Entire interior was re-textured / crown moulding / kitchen demo/replace including appliances.
Because KC has his own dump truck is very convenient for haul out of debris as well as pickup of landscape and other materials for the job as the job progresses.
KC did have good suggestions and has the contacts to get good pricing on quality products such as Brick/cabinetry/foam accents/windows etc.
Kirk and his team work very hard are conscientious and keep a tidy jobsite.
He will work with any of your own subcontractors but will also provide contact details for folks he has worked with in the past.
Pricing was fair after the whole job was done although it did take longer and cost more than originally estimated but from what I hear this is normal for larger re-model projects because there are so many moving parts.
He had the plans drawn up and went to the city to obtain the permits...so no problems with any of the intermediate city inspections and achieved permit sign off .
Our realtor who was checking in periodically on the projects progress was very impressed with the end result as was his colleagues who came to see the finished product.
As testament to how well the finished product was received, when we put it on the market it sold in 7 days with multiple offers over asking. Granted alot of that had to do with the location but it also had a lot to do with the "Pop" the house had after the remodel was completed... people that looked at it were very impressed with the finished product.
Replied to Kirk P. - Apr 24, 2013
kirk p was avery good client we liked working with him both himself and his family including the realator made everything go smooth on the overall project we did run little longer due to unforseen wiring and remodel problems. but they seemed to move past we acheived a good finished product i would be proud to put another outstanding construction job.! kirk c. besides how can you lose with two kirks?
I am extremely pleased with the response and proffesionalism of Outstanding Contstruction on a recent tile job we had done in our formal dining room. We are a Premier Senior Community which adds extra challenges to any job we contract out. It takes a special contractor to work in and around our community, Kirk and his staff were proffesional, couteous and above all, knowledgable in all facets of the job we wanted done. I appreciate it very much and look forward to contacting Kirk on future projects. Thank you.
Kirk constructed my salon from the ground up. He was very punctual, and finished when he said he would be finished. Most importantly he is very honest, which is a rare thing to find these days. No matter any job, I highly recommend outstanding contsruction, they truly are outstanding.
Kirk and his team performed an interior remodel and a new garage build for my house from January 2011 to July 2011. I am satisfied with Kirks work. He is very experienced in new constructions and remodels. He did a very good job for a very good price. Kirk also gave me lots of free extras at his expense.
In March 2010 I purchased a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom house in Union City, California. The house was in good structural condition, but as a foreclosured unit, it needed some rehabilitation. The original detached garage was in poor condition; it was badly damaged by termites and water. My intent was to have the detached garage demolished and completely rebuilt from the ground up. I planned on doing interior renovation at a later time.
I found Kirk from craigslist and he had a link to his Thumbtack page. I called him and he came by to give me an estimate. He said he could give me a really good deal on a new garage and do an interior remodel for a little more than what I would have paid for the garage alone. Kirk was really enthusiastic about doing my job, much more so than the other contractors I had come to give me a bid. Kirk also had very good ideas about modernizing the interior. He suggested a bar counter between my kitchen and dining area. He would also turn my empty utility rooms into a master bedroom and master bathroom. And he wanted to create a laundry machine closet.
Kirk had an architect draw the construction plans; his architect did a really nice job. He submitted it to the city as part of the permit application process. I wanted the work done with all permits so everything would be by the book. It would also help should I decide to sell the house at a later date.
Kirk started out on the interior work first. He demolished the old kitchen and utility room. He built a new kitchen, a master bedroom, a master bathroom, a laundry machine closet, and a small coat closet by the front door. Kirk said he could also do a couple more things to the interior. He would do the labor for cheap if I paid for the materials. So I agreed and Kirk also replaced my front door, front window, and sliding glass door. He also remodeled my fireplace and fixed a bunch of broken things in my original bathroom. Kirk also completely rewired the house. The original wiring was a dangerous mess, a potential fire hazard.
The interior work was completed towards the end of April 2011 and all the work was approved by the city inspector. It looked really nice. I received many compliments from friends and family. I am fairly picky with details and I did notice a couple flaws with fit and finish. I pointed out them out to Kirk. He and his workers did fix them.
The garage work started immediately afterwards. The old garage was not worth saving so it was demolished and hauled away. The original foundation was unusable. So Kirk jackhammered it out. Kirk poured a new heavy-duty foundation onto an extensive frame of rebar. He tied it into the house foundation. Then he framed the new oversized 510 square foot garage. Kirk added a storage attic with a pull-down ladder. Kirk also poured a new driveway that looked excellent. Kirk added a 50 amp subpanel to the garage. He also gave me a bunch of free extras like wall insulation. Kirk also used roof panels coated with an aluminum heat reflective substance.
The garage was completed by the end of July 2011. It looked really nice. Like the interior, I also received compliments from friends and family. The above garage attic storage with the pull-down ladder was really useful. The garage also passed city inspection. There were also a few issues with fit and finish in the garage. Kirk fixed the problems that I pointed out.
While the garage was being built, Kirk also repaired my patio awning and side perimeter fence. He did an excellent job on them. One lady even drove by, stopped, and complimented on how nice the outside looks.
I am overall satisfied with Kirks work. He really transformed my house. Since everything was done with permits, I now have a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom house on county and city records. If you want to see his work on my house, ask Kirk to give you my phone number.

Concrete Repair and Maintenance
Kirk recently did some repair work and a parking lot asphalt repair/sealing for my apartment building -
Kirk's prices are very fair and he is extremely dependable; he provided updates every step of the way so that I always knew what was going on.
When bad weather struck near the end of the asphalt work his team put in the extra effort to reseal, clean up, etc. and finish the job properly
Kirk is an excellent construction person and such a great guy. We recently hired him to do some tenant improvements on a commercial space we were leasing. He not only worked really hard (and long hours) to meet our deadline, but he did a wonderful job as well.
He is a pretty practical person who gives great advice based on his experiences. There are a few things (like putting a door in a certain area) that I am very glad that I listened to.
Even though he had other jobs that needed his attention, he helped us move our stuff in and get settled. We were extremely lucky to have found him. He made our transition to our new space SO MUCH EASIER.
I will definitely use him for any and all improvements that I plan to do in the future. If, after reading this review, you have specific questions about his level of service, please email me. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing the services he provides.
Kirk and Pablo recently completed a driveway paver widening project for me. They dug out a small rose garden and transplanted the roses (and moved an exisiting bush for me) and matched and fixed some of the existing pavers. They came everyday at the specific time they said they would and job was done early and for the agreed upon price. I look forward to having Kirk do some additional projects for me.
Outstanding Construction and Hauling Services did an amazing job for us on our backyard.
We were looking to completely overhaul and transform our backyard from a concrete, unusable space to a patio and lawn area where our toddler could play.
Kirk of Outstanding Construction came up with a creative plan to accomplish what seemed to be a monumental task at the time. He and his team constructed our patio along with a retaining wall, lawn area, irrigation, and drainage. He also provided very helpful suggestions along the way and built a garden area and platform for our storage shed.
Although the project took longer than we expected to complete due to weather, we are very pleased with the results and would highly recommend Outstanding Construction and Hauling Services' to anyone.
Kirk, with Outstanding Construction, built an **incredible** custom side door for our home. He was able to take my concept and bring it to life even better than I imagined. The door looks fantastic, works great and we are VERY pleased with the work.
We had a slight problem with the door and Outstanding Construction came out quickly and fixed the problem at no additional charge. I'd highly recommend them.
OUTSTANDING CONSTRUCTION HAS DONE AN EXCELLENT JOB ON TWO BATHROOM UPGRADES IN MY HOME. I GRADE THEM TEN OUT OF TEN IN PERFORMANCE AND SERVICE. I WOULD RECOMEND THEM TO ALL OF MY FRIENDS AND RELATIVES WITHOUT HESITATION.
