Kevin took on the remodeling and project managed, which included hiring subcontractors as well as provided design ideas for my recently acquired 2-story, 2000/Sq./Ft. single-family home in Napa Valley, CA. The home was gutted, two bathrooms fully remodeled, all built-in cabinets rebuilt and refinished, custom barn doors made, partition walls added, needed electrical and plumbing work, installation of FF&E(s), flooring, and multi-color painting throughout. Kevin did a great job, worked hard and long hours to accomplished it all in just 3 weeks, wow!
I am a General Contractor ,from Santa Barbara Area here for several upcoming projects we were hand chosen due to our high quality workmanship thus relocated as part of our deal, While here Wife decided to buy a second home ,not knowing any roofers we ran across his ad and decided to give him a shot either that or wait for our roofer from Santa Barbara to come here when his time allowed,I was hesitant due to the high standards and clientel we are accustom to In Santa Barbara my wife included ...To our amazement Toms personality as a person was a pleasure to work with on a professional level his work and his of qualitywork far exceeded what we were expecting down here ,Tom is capable to perform as directed without little if no input from us it went smooth,Other subs we hired here for our own personal projects saw me as the General and not as the client which we were not happy about , Tom saw beyond that knowing I am a general yet not on my personal property , he gave us A-1 treatment , quality of his workmanship is beyond what I expected if the need arose I would not hesitate to take him back home to Santa barbara as a subcontractor , however as for now we, click which makes my life easier to say the least so in regards to down this area I think I found one subcontractor I will keep....As for you others subcontractors from this area well it's probably in my best interest to just bring my subcontractors from Santa Barbara due the working relationship with me and their high quality of workmanship which I have built my reputation on , However Tom has proved himself beyond what I expected and I look forward to upcoming projects with him down south here as well as back in Santa Barbara if he's up for it his quality will fit right in up there with what the cliental expectsand high standards the client base expect in santa Barbara and like me Tom is hands on not the type of contractor who just sends workers and just shows up when it's time to pickup a check....as for his prices well it is a fair price for the quality and the pleasure of working with Tom.....Not to mention he is licensed insured etc. Tom like my self is not looking to get rich off one Job rather we know during these economic times things have changed and we have to change with it and like myself tom reflected that in His price, all these other subs heard I was from Santa Barbara and saw $$$$$ signs , somehow the general public has this conception all contractors have deep pockets , let me assure you it takes capital to make money and we have a lot tied up in Insurances , Bond's etc things the public has no idea about and although our cost have to adjust accordingly based on these economic times I can assure our Marerial's prices and labor expenses as well as insurance and bonds have only increased...So bottom line with Tom for a licensed Roofer and your protection your wasting time shopping around.
We highly recommend Triton Builders. I feel as though we got good value for money. When the scope of our bathroom remodel expanded we were not gouged with change orders. Enjoys a good relationship with subcontractors and able to get them to perform on time with fair pricing. Excellent quality, listens to the client carefully, responsive, hard working, honest and trustworthy. Good experience; will use again.
I had some difficulty finding a decent contractor to fix issues with my house. Dave solved my problem. He is easy to work with and doesn't charge unreasonable prices as so many do. He does a quality job, and my tenant who lives in the house is also pleased with his work. I look forward to having him work on future projects.
Sione was very cooperative, and did a great job! He left the workplace in much better shape than it was before his arrival!
APCOTECTS/APCO Construction Services of Menifee, CA, recently completed a project at our home. During rain there was an unseen roof leak that caused seen leaking evidence onto a bedroom ceiling, major water splashing from the patio cover onto about 12 feet across an outside wall causing extensive soaking of the wall down to the patio floor, and gutter overflowing. Alan from APCO, timely responded to our request. He came in and made an evaluation of needed repairs, wrote a reasonable cost and expeditious completion (3 days) time frame estimate, including a general contract. The 3 days of repairs were made by Mike within the agreed period. Some specifics are, He: (1) discovered the cause of the roof leak and repaired it; (2) removed part of the bedroom ceiling, replaced, and re-textured the entire ceiling; (3) added flashing and sealing across the entire width of the patio roof; (4) raised, lowered, and/or leveled and cleaned gutters as necessary; (5) and more. Mike also left his work areas clean and neat each day. It is now such a pleasure to observe after the recent (12/5-12/2014) unusually heavy rains, a dry and original condition bedroom ceiling, a dry outside wall, and gutters that are not overflowing. Thank you Alan and Mike for a job well done. Gloria and Bill.
Rick acted as the main contractor/coordinator for repairs on our house following a kitchen fire. The included painting, repairs to walls, replacement of flooring/carpets that were damaged by smoke. Throughout the process Rick not only managed the process, did some of the work himself (he excels at tile and stone work), selected and oversaw sub-contractors, but also was great at making design and materials choices and suggestions. A great combination of workman's skills and an artistic eye, all at a very fair price.
Todd was great - he had some really nice wood double-hung windows built and the installation went well. It's a 100 year old Craftsman so it required more than a simple remove and replace...and they turned out great. He replaced the existing MDF trim with real wood, sanded the edges to match the original woodwork of the house & it looks great. He made sure the work areas inside the house were covered/sealed as much as possible & cleaned up too (which seems like a given, but i've had contractors that created a mess and left a mess). The best thing is that he actually did the work himself - no subcontractors which is always risky for the customer. From our experience, he is very detailed-oriented and also has excellent carpentry skills. He seems to take pride in his work and it shows. We would hire him again for future work.
I have hired John Pino construction THREE TIMES. The first time was a small job in Murrieta to cut-back and re-build a corner overhang on the roof of my house so I could pull my RV up close to the side of the house. John performed that job quickly and easily and for a very fair price. When I needed some work done inside my Murrieta home, I did not hesitate to hire John Pino again. This was a bigger job involving moving a wall and creating custom inset cabinets around my fireplace. Once again, John's work was excellent and his price was fair. After my wife and I moved to Escondido, we kept in touch with John. When we decided to add-on to our home, we hired John Pino without hesitation. It was a truly large job, adding over 1,000 square feet to our hillside home in Hidden Meadows. It was a tricky addition over a steep slope. The new addition included a full wrap-around deck on the south the west sides. The west side deck was cantilevered. We also had John re-locate a stairwell and a laundry room in the older part of the home. It cost us $180,000 to do this. In comparison, the HUGE, well-advertised construction companies such as Lars and Marrokal estimated this job would be $225,000. I am an aerospace engineer and I love to work with my hands. Impressively, John allowed me to work with him when I was able to. He was even willing to teach me some new things. John is not the type of contractor to hire subcontractors, then take off and ignore them. John would always be right there working with them and monitoring the quality of their work. Especially impressive to me was a time I was home when a building inspector arrived. I talked with him just before he left and he raved about John's work. He told me that if all contractors did that quality of work, his job would be easier and more fun. He actually said to me, "I wish I could bring other contractors here to see what's been done as an example of what to do right!" It is now six years later and we still live in the same Hidden Meadows Escondido home and we LOVE the changes John made. It was excellent quality work that has stood the test of time so far.
Ivan has always been available for our construction projects as well as home repairs. His prices are reasonable and his subcontractors he uses have done a great job. I would recommend him for anyone looking for a honest and reliable contractor.
Jim was absolutely a pleasure to work with. I was so impressed with his communication. He ALWAYS answered my texts, emails, and phone calls promptly. That made the entire process so much better. He had great ideas and gave me suggestions. All of Jim's subcontractors were professional and very very respectful. Jim and his workers left each day only after making sure everything was cleaned up looking nice. I highly recommend Jim. Now that my kitchen. Is complete I will hire him again to remodel my bathroom.
We had our Kitchen completely redone and had a Patio Awning built. We received about 5 estimates. The experience was frustrating because most of the contractors made us feel like we could not get what we wanted within our budget. We knew we would have to compromise some to get what we wanted within the budget we had. Travis took the time to find out what we wanted and helped up find the way to make that happen. He also introduced ideas to us we hadn't thought of and made the outcome so much better than we expected. He also finished the job in a very timely manner and was very respectful of our home and life.
I hired JSJ Construction to paint the interior of my home, replace the baseboards and install new doors, closet doors and crown molding. In addition they built a linen closet into an existing closet, wired my living room for two new chandeliers and replaced the facia on my fireplace. The owner, Joe, was easy to work with, he always answered the phone when I called or returned my call promptly, and he gave me a very fair bid for the work. I recommend him to my friends and to you. I am pleased with their work and their business protocol. They began the job on schedule and completed it within the timeline promised. They were considerate of the people in the home as they worked. Their quality of work was very good, especially the fireplace facia which involved 5 different tiles and a good deal of grout work (excellent job).
I was a general building contractor in California for 30 years and am very familiar with residential and commercial construction projects. I currently own an 8 unit apartment property in Banning and have made many interior and exterior improvements. I've hired subcontractors and employed local workers to accomplish this and have been disappointed with almost of them. It's difficult to find someone who does a good job for a fair price. Ed has proven to be a responsible guy who shows up for work on time, communicates well, takes pride in his work and is not lazy. He has extensive construction knowledge, works in a clean, organized manner and finishes what he starts. He has installed floor tile and concrete block, made interior repairs, done carpentry and landscaping jobs for me and did a great job on all of them. I'm particular about the quality of work product on my property and do not normally recommend people but I know you will be glad you chose him for your improvement project.
January 7, 2017 To whom it may concern: It is our pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for John Duhon of Duhon Construction. John was our general contractor for an extensive remodel. The remodel included removal of first-floor interior walls, relocation of the kitchen to the back of the house, addition of two bath-rooms and an upstairs bedroom, downstairs and upstairs decks, a new roof and flooring, and plumbing and rewiring. This project, which took twenty months, involved coordinating the work of different subcontractors and work crews, consulting with a structural engineer, and working with an interior designer. For work that he did not do himself, John used knowledgeable, skilled, and competent subcontractors, who conscientiously followed project specifications. He effectively coordinated and managed the work crews, who were reliable and courteous. At the end of a day, John left everything in order. A friend commented she had never known a contractor to be so tidy. John was an expert at dealing with City Hall. His familiarity with building codes and with the permitting and inspection process, kept the project on track. When a situation arose in which work was called for that had not been foreseen in the plans, John took care of it--often without charging extra. Communicating with John at the project or by phone and email, was always easy. John was generous with his time and clear in his explanations. When requests or concerns were brought to his attention--for example, when we asked for storage space under the stairs--John willingly complied. John’s services were invaluable. We recommend John Duhon as a general contractor, highly and without reservation. William and Ana Greenberg
Wayne is one of the most honest contractors I have ever had the privilege of working with. He is knowledgeable and cares about you and your project. We were delighted with the results and outcome of our project. I strongly recommend him and would be more than happy to talk to you if you are considering using his services. He is truly a "gem"!
Over the past few years we have used Rocky on various home and rental renovations. He is always very thorough and honest in providing cost-effective recommendations. His workmanship is of very high quality and he is very professional in his dealings with owners and tenants.
We were extremely fortunate to have met Steve Marsh just after we purchased our lot for our new 10,000 square foot custom home. Steve helped us develop budgets, select contractors, fixtures and material suppliers, and he took complete control of the project from beginning to end. He made helpful creative and money-saving suggestions where alternative methods or materials could be used, and managed all of the subcontractors in a congenial and professional way, which encouraged them to work efficiently and to produce their best work. Steve has always been there when we've had a follow-up question about something involving our home, and even though we built it a few years ago, he remembers every detail as if we had just completed it last week. We cannot give a higher recommendation for this gentleman, and we will certainly use him again for our next dream house!
We met John Santos through Thumbtack. He was always prompt, on time and responsive to our questions and concerns. We hired him to gut and remodel out kitchen. He has a lot of great ideas which helped us in our decisions. He also helped us save money by recommending pre-fab quartz for our countertop. He recommended a custom cabinet builder who we also worked with. He had a great network of subcontractors. John managed the project very well and came in on budget. We would definitely use him again and recommend him to friends.
I have hired Mr. Jesus Sanchez many times from 2011 to 2015. First, he was our electrical subcontractor for our new commercial building in Downey. Thereafter he has been helping us as the handyman in different types of maintenance works for our properties around Downey area. His is always prompt, pleasant, knowledgeable and the fees is very reasonable. Quinn Nuyen, Manager of Compartment Business Partners, LLC
A complete remodel of a 3500 sq. ft. home in Bell Canyon. This is what I would call a "one wall remodel!" Everything from floor to roof was changed. The finished home is beautiful and now renting for $6750 a mo. Other than minor "glitches" with a subcontractor now and then and change orders (not caused by the contractor) during the remodel, which slightly slowed the job, everything went perfectly.
We have done numerous major remodel projects at various homes in San Diego, but we had no idea where to begin looking for a GC for the house we were buying in Fontana to flip. We had never used thumbtack, but ultimately all of our bids were done through this site. We ultimately hired California Way Construction and all I can say is - LOOK NO FURTHER. HIRE THESE GUYS. They know their business, are honest, beyond reliable, amazing communicators, available night and day. Raul has an incredible design sense and made wonderful suggestions throughout the project (to the point I stopped doing much myself because I ended up liking every single recommendation he made better than what I had picked -- paint color, granite, tile, hardwood stain color., etc, etc.) This house was (literally) a tear-down and it's GORGEOUS. Oligario and Raul (with wonderful subcontractors) do what they say they're going to do and have exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We are just days away from finishing this huge job, so don't take them yet (!), but there are not enough words to recommend the quality, professionalism and kindness of this team.
