Introduction: We are a local, affordable, construction company specializing in bathroom and kitchen remodels. Our strong-suit is listening deeply to your vision, offering suggestions if needed, giving you competitive, quality pricing, and making your vision a reality. We have been in business since 2014, and are blessed to have great customer reviews across many platforms. 5-YEAR WARRANTY We are licensed, bonded, insured, and use top quality German engineered materials allowing us to be a part of the few companies offering longer manufacturer warranties on our shower systems. QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP Our team members come to us with great pro skills, and we continue to hone new skills together as the industry evolves. Most of our work is done "in-house", and we also strive to build strong relationships with local subcontractors if your project needs extra help. TURN AROUND TIME Our average bathroom remodels can take anywhere between 2.5 to 3.5 weeks of physical remodel time. We allot an additional two weeks prior physical construction to allow for all finish materials to arrive on job site before we begin. We can't sacrifice our quality craftsmanship for a time-crunch. If you are in a rush, we likely won't be able to assist with your project vision. INSURANCE CLAIM While we are happy to do the work needed associated with circumstances involving an insurance claim, we will work directly with you, and leave the insurance details in your hands.

Easy and friendly staff to work with. I learned a lot from our first home improvement project. All of our needs were met and the craftsmanship came out great. We had two hiccups- shower tiling and trim. To save cost we did all the shopping and finished materials pickup. Instructions were clear and problem was solved instantly. Will do business again, including referrals

I contacted American Grade Construction for a 60’s bathroom remodel. Brandon is very passionate about remodeling. He took the time to listen to my ideas and figure things out. I got everything I wanted. Throughout the project, Brandon was commutative and easy to work with. His crew was polite and considerate. There were no major issues, but things do come up during construction. When issues occurred, Brandon acted with a sense of urgency. My new bathroom is awesome! It feels like a spa, and I look forward to taking a shower in the morning. I would contact American Grade Construction again for my next project.

I had multiple conversations with Brandon as we were planning our kitchen and bathroom remodel. Brandon was extremely knowledgeable, professional and patient, walking us through the details of the work and educating us on the different aspects of remodel. He was able to give us a very detailed (so you know where you will be spending your money) and reasonable estimate within 2 days. Thank you Brandon!

As soon as I sent Brandon a message, he gave me a call within an hour. Unlike some other contractors I have dealt with, Brandon is very easy, friendly and patient to communicate with. I had Brandon remodeled my two bathrooms and a powder room, it took about three month to complete. Although there were some issues(nothing major) came up during the renovation, however Brandon always managed to came up with a solution and made sure I'm satisfied. I had my designer friends over and they all loved the outcome! I'd recommend him for bathroom renovations.

Hey Davis! Hope your doing well. Thanks for giving us a good review granted the small deadline setback we had with your 3 bathroom remodel project. You were also a fair easy going client and will be happy to do any work for you again. Btw a lot of my now clients tend to fall in love with your subway tile bathroom design!

If I could give Brandon Guillen and American Grade Construction (AGC) zero stars I would. We started a bathroom and kitchen remodel in Nov 2020 and it quickly spiraled into multiple change orders, him firing his entire staff, and then we fired him after he abandoned the project and did not meet the project deadline of July 23, 2021. After we fired him on Aug 9th it went from bad to worse. He called 911 on us, convinced his sub contractors to harass us, filed an improper mechanic lien, and had his subs also file improper mechanic liens. We have spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to not only finish our project but to to go through the courts and bond system to remove those liens. We won our court case and we were awarded funds from the CSLB (California State Licensing Board) arbitration due to American Grade Construction abandonment. While some of the workmanship done by AGC employees was good, it was marred by multiple code violations regarding electrical, plumbing, and mechanical work done to our home.
