Shaz Construction & Design

Shaz was hired by my next door neighbor to completely renovate the exterior of their house. The whole work crew were always courteous and Shaz went out of his way to ensure I was happy with the work and any impact on my property. As time went by I could see how much care and attention Shaz puts into his projects so I didn't hesitate to hire him to replace some damaged siding on my property. All of the work was been carried out to the very highest standard and I would definitely use Shaz Construction again.* Thanks for everything Shaz, I'll miss you guys! And thanks for all the plant advice ;-) I'll let you know when we are in a position to tackle our rotten siding issue. Best wishes, Ian & Jo.

Lifetime Remodeling

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!

E.R. Builds & Repairs

Our home was burglarized and our back door to our home was pried open and Eddie replied immediately and showed up within an hour to see the job and gave us an extimate. We settled on purchasing a new door and having it installed and our home was secure again.

S.O.T.A. Construction

We've been working with Garrett and S.O.T.A. Construction since February 2016 in opening our restaurant called 'Aina in San Francisco and we couldn't be happier. He came in and gave us a quote on some minor work needed and had some cool ideas. From there he ended up taking on more than we had planned after seeing his work. The work he does is fast and clean, and he always has a new idea or solution before a problem even occurs. He's kept us incredibly on budget coming up with solutions within our spend, as well he's been VERY up front about any cost and keeping any additional work cost transparent. There were no surprises in any payments, he worked hard, and had amazing communication with us. He also did a great job doing custom woodwork for us for our bathroom, tables, a brand new wine rack, outfitting a whole wooden bar, etc etc. He was also knowledgable about restaurant quotes, permits required etc which really helped us throughout the process on an important commercial job. Very responsive and all round great guy. Overall Garrett and S.O.T.A. Construction went above and beyond on what we had asked for. Highly recommended.

DevCo Building Enterprises, LLC

Devin has undertaken a number of projects for me over the past few years, ranging from quite small (realigning cabinet doors) to significant (bathroom remodel, new backyard fence, custom barn door). In each and every case, he has been reliable, courteous, pleasant to deal with, and conscientious about both the quality of his work and minimizing disruption to our household during construction. His work is top notch and he asks questions along the way to make sure that the finished product meets our expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend Devin.
