We hired Lifetime Remodeling in the summer of 2017 to do a first floor addition to our home in Millbrae. The project involved adding 400 square feet to our house, which included expanding the living room and adding a new bedroom and a new bathroom. It was wonderful working with Sam and his team at every step of the way. Their bid was very competitive compared to the many others I got, and the estimated time for completion (about four months) was much shorter than most of the other quotes. Lifetime's responsive customer service and attention to detail made our lives so much easier. Here are just a few examples of things they did to minimize our stress. When strong winds blew the construction fence over during off hours, they came out here quickly to get it back up and weigh it down with sandbags. When it came time to block off the parts of the house being demolished, they helped us move furniture and cover it carefully so that it would not get damaged or dirty during construction. When they needed to move the wiring for our internet access, they made sure to reconnect it promptly. The temporary wall they built was very sturdy and effective at blocking out dust, so we had no problem continuing to live in the house throughout the construction. Sam also closely inspected all the work and often caught adjustments to be made that I did not notice. For example, even though the interior painting looked fine to me, Sam decided that he wanted another coat. When we did point out other things that needed adjusting, such as leveling out certain fixtures, the team promptly fixed them. When I asked for a different design for our recessed lighting at the last minute, even after some of them had already been installed, Sam accommodated the request. Sam checked in with me often, so I always felt well informed about the next steps coming up and what I needed to plan for. This was awesome because I learned that it can be agonizing to pick out tiles, hardwood, hardware, etc. for a project like this, especially for someone like me doing it for the first time. It was also helpful to have Sam's recommendations for suppliers for the finishes and fixtures. We were really impressed that Lifetime finished the project pretty much right on schedule and with absolutely no cost overruns. To make this happen, most days, Lifetime had a team of two to four workers here by 8 a.m., and they worked steadily for the entire day. They also often worked on weekends. After Lifetime finished the addition to the house, we ended up also hiring them to do landscaping for our front yard and replacing our concrete driveway with paver stones. They also did a great job on this, and we are so happy with and amazed by how our house looks now. Remodeling inevitably involves many hard decisions and a lot of time, energy, and money invested by the homeowner! The last thing you need is a contractor who adds unnecessary stress, yet it seemed like everyone I talked to had horror stories about their contractors. We are so grateful that Sam and Lifetime made it a wonderful experience for us.Feb 3, 2018VerifiedLifetime Remodeling's reply

I am extremely pleased with the major renovation of my home including kitchen, bathrooms, and all interior and exterior walls that Lifetime Remodeling completed for me on March. 13, 2018. I certainly welcome the opportunity to give them a five start rating. Everybody at Lifetime was top notch to work with---The supervisors of my project, Sam and Mike, back office and all the workers who came to make the completion of this project a reality were extremely hard working, very professional, and completely trustworthy. I also liked that this company works with many suppliers and saved us thousands of dollars on flooring, marble countertops, tile, cabinets and more. The supervising managers and their workers were also top-notch in every way. Because I am an older, single person it was very important for me to go with a company I could trust from the beginning to the end of the project. I'm thankful and could not be happier. I will gladly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a general contracting business for their home renovation needs. They're top-notch all the way!Mar 30, 2018VerifiedLifetime Remodeling's reply
Hi Moni! Thank you so much for trusting us with your project. We are very happy to hear that you are satisfied with your remodel!

Again thank you for your comments and for sharing your experience working with Lifetime Remodeling. We appreciate it! Looking forward to work with you and your future remodeling projects.
I love Eli, Shmuel and the entire team at Lifetime Remodeling. We had an unexpected leak in the master bath that slowly destroyed our kitchen ceiling. They made an assessment, remodeled the bathroom, fixed the kitchen (and put in money saving/beautiful recessed lights), and left us very happy. When we encountered a problem with the plumbing, most other contractors would have taken advantage and hiked the price. But, they were so professional and everything was still finished on time and in-budget. (My friends tell me that never happens. So now I refer all of them to Lifetime.)Nov 10, 2017VerifiedLifetime Remodeling's reply
Lynda, thank you for sharing this great review and your very kind words! We appreciate the recommendation and the opportunity to have served you. Thanks for trusting us and we can't wait to work with you again! We hope you enjoy your new bathroom.
Good Value, High Quality, Efficient Work. We recently bought a house and called on Lifetime Remodeling to help us with a master bathroom remodel that continued with replacing the old roof. My wife and I are inevitably more difficult as clients than your average homeowner is, but we could not have been more impressed with Lifetime Remodeling. Firstly, their pricing knocked the competition out of the park, and the completeness and detail in their proposal and scope of work is like nothing I've seen before from contractors . As a home owner we were initially wary of having an additional external project manager on site, but Samuel and Matan from Lifetime Remodeling are absolutely fantastic: knowledgeable, reliable, resourceful and respectful of our role to design the project. The work itself was performed to a really high standard: the crew were excellently coordinated by Frank the foreman; they came when they were supposed to; and were clean and tidy. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to others.Feb 17, 2017VerifiedLifetime Remodeling's reply
Hi Linda, thank you for sharing this great review and your very kind words! Offering the best service to all our customers is our top priority. The entire crew had a pleasure working with you and your family.
We first met their team when a salesman cold-called us. It took us a while to make a decision about what we wanted to do, but once my wife and I decided to move forward, working with Shmuel and his team was excellent. I can't say enough good about them. The project involved removing a bathroom, adding a bathroom, removing and remodeling a kitchen, adding hardwood floors, adding a gas line, upgrading an electrical box, moving HVAC ducts, wiring and hanging a chandelier, tile for a fireplace and mantle, and painting. There were structural walls that needed to be modified. They promised to get the job done in six weeks, in time for an important family gathering we had planned. We were skeptical, but bet on them, and they came through. In any project of this size, there will be unforeseen issues that come up. In all of those cases, Shmuel was excellent to work with. Some examples are: - Once we saw the lighting in the new kitchen, we wanted an extra light over the sink. He tore-up some of his work and added it and charged us for the hardware only. - We wanted a cabinet added by our front door and another by our laundry room. He added it to the work without question, and charged only for the hardware. - We decided we wanted to replace the stair railing. He helped us find bids from railing experts, and charged us the bid without any contractor markup. The extra work disrupted his planned work schedule, but he worked around it to make sure we were still done on time. - The vent over the kitchen range appeared too low to us, even though it was within code. He replaced and installed the cabinet with something smaller. No charge. - With all the demolition, he accidentally lost our Nest thermostat. When this was realized, without any questions or me having to ask, he apologized and picked-up a new one, at his cost. Some other examples of the excellent service: - Shmuel and Shalhevet helped us pick paint colors and pick kitchen appliances and cabinet styles, traveling to a number of stores with us. My understanding is that most contractors would just tell you to pick something and leave you to figure out the details. - They allowed us to live in our home during construction. At the end of each day, they spent time blocking-off areas and moving equipment (as required by code) to make the site safe for our children. He could have easily just insisted we spend a month in a hotel. - All the little things. For example, we never discussed replacing the flooring HVAC vent covers; he bought beautiful new ones that matched the wood floors we chose. We never discussed replacing outlet faces, but he felt it wasn't right to repaint and leave the old worn outlet faces. They are highly recommended!May 12, 2017Lifetime Remodeling's reply
