I found Brendt Finley Construction (BFC) online at Thumbtack as part of a first pass search for a general contractor for my home project. After obtaining 6 different estimates, Brendt was one of three that responded timely and requested to come out, discuss/review the job site and ultimately provide an estimate. He provided a clear and understandable overview of the construction requirements needed to accomplish the job without all the “required” extensive modifications the other contractors noted. The entire project was planned very diligently and conducted with great attention to the details; starting with preparation to the very final part, the clean up. Brendt patiently worked with the city of La Mesa’s building division to understand and obtain the required permits. He coordinated his schedule as well as that of his sub-contractors to maintain my tight timelines. He even worked closely with me on evaluating and coordinating an additional sub-contractor I selected to provide service for the project. I should also add that during the whole time, there was outstanding communication which afforded consensus on proposed changes by both parties. Based on the quality of the work and management of the overall project, I immediately requested another quote from BFC for another home improvement task before he could be booked again. Brendt was able to fit in my second project and finish to meet my schedule. Again, the quality of work and attention to detail came through. I would highly recommend BFC as the general contractor for your home project.Sep 30, 2018Verified
Brendt came on as my general contractor for a 500 sq. ft addition. Just a really skilled, knowledgeable craftsman who did not mind teaching me, as the homeowner, the tools of his trade. Super honest and can do everything from framing to tile to electrical.Oct 4, 2018
Brendt got the condo I bought ready to move in. He painted the interior, added crown molding, improved the fireplace, customized and hung blinds throughout, upgraded the garage. I was very pleased with his work and his price and his timeline. I would recommend him to anyone.Mar 27, 2013

We really enjoyed working with Bendt. He was easy going and yet highly personal and professional. Appreciated how well he listened to what we wanted and paid attention to details such that this structure looks like it’s always been a part of the property. You can see in the pictures how the roof color & the metal trim & the paint matched the house. It’s just perfect 👌Oct 16, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Everyone has their price. There is always someone higher and there is always someone lower. I've typically been in the middle with my estimates over the years which is a good place to be. People tend to look at the high price as too much and the low price as possibly having reliability and quality issues.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?This Thumbtack online quoting thing is a good idea in theory I guess. It is quite convenient for the consumer however, there is much to be said about meeting in person, discussing everything, and visually inspecting the job. It is difficult to accurately estimate a project with a brief description and a few pictures.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?No formal education or training. Everything I know I have attained doing it hands on for thirty years...far superior to anything taught in a textbook
