Zeev was right on time to start the project of installing 8 can lights in the living room and wireing them to a switch. He installed them exactly where we wanted them. Wasted no time and only took a 15 minute break at noon then finished the job. After completion of the job lights were tested and area was cleaned up. I would give Zeev 5 stars and hire him back which I plan to do for another room. Very satisfied with the quality of his work.

It has been a pleasure to work with West Coast, and Nathaniel. He helped us put together our house plans and has been nothing short of patient and courteous. His work is outstanding: Thorough and precise--and affordable! Should we need any other plans made or adjusted, we'll go back to West Coast. Absolutely recommend!
Trish is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in her field. She listens to her clients needs and ideas. And always ready with creative suggestions only a true professional can perceive. I am so excited about my new kitchen design plan she created for my 1972 home. Thank you Trish! I highly recommend her.
We really enjoyed working with Carole during our kitchen remodel. At first, I didn't think I needed a designer since I knew what I wanted, but she was so much help. The suggestions she made to my plan ended up making the biggest difference. I love the stove and door she recommended. When I was overwhelmed by countertop options, she met me at the warehouse and we chose the countertop and had a good idea for the backsplash in less than an hour. She understood that I was on a budget and helped me get my dream kitchen in a price range that I could afford.
We hired an architect who drew us a plan that didn't fit in our property. It was for a 2 car garage with an apartment on the second level. It had to match our 1890 victorian. We contacted DM to see if they could help us. they figured how to make it work out by working closely with the city and a civil engineer. They were professional, never late, always in constant contact with us throughout on a daily basis. They were able to finish the project faster than what we expected. They were able to exceed our needs and expectations. If you are looking for a one stop company that is on time and professional we reccomend De Marco Builders Inc.
Andrew Feldon was very professional in his planning, design, and execution of our project, which was a total rebuild of our house. He was thorough and personable in his approach, listening to our needs and desires. He was creative and innovative in his design, offering practical and aesthetically pleasing design solutions. And, he was responsive, competent, and fun to work with. The project was completed on time and on budget. I highly recommend his services and would/will hire him again.
Sue was really great to work with. She incorporated all of our ideas into the plan she developed. The detailed drawings were very well done so the permit process went smoothly. I recommend Sue without any hesitation.
We are in the process of remodeling our 1908 bungalow in Oakland, CA. The house has gone through various unfortunate design choices and shoddy workmanship. This (combined with the desire to insulate and rewire) has prompted us to perform more of a gut remodel. We had general ideas of what we wanted to accomplish with the project, but we had trouble synthesizing our ideas and updating the floor plan to make it more logical, especially in our kitchen (which is important because we love to cook). We turned to our friend Hiroki Abe for help and have no regrets. He has generated plans for the house, and performed a variety of design iterations, providing suggestions to maintain existing good features while coming up with great ideas to improve the difficult aspects of the house. He designs in revit, which allowed him to easily show us different views/angles from the interior of the home. This added perspective was very helpful compared to just a floor plan to help us understand how a space would look. Hiroki seems influenced by simple, clean designs (and his serious cooking skills!). His design for our bungalow has nicely blended appropriate modern touches but our goal to maintain the feel of the bungalow is intact. The design work has been hampered by our pace making decisions, but Hiroki has kept the process moving and in 3 months we now have a set of drawings that is a serious improvement on our original plans, and is ready for permitting and bidding work with our contractor. We will definitely keep Hiroki involved throughout the construction process. Please feel free to contact us for a reference if needed, or to look at our design.
In December 2013 we experienced a complete water damage disaster due to frozen pipe issues while we were out of state. Fortunately for us, Alan was available to take total charge of reclamation, redesign of floor plan, obtaining bid estimates, acting as general manager, managing subcontractors, budget restraints, change orders, schedules, quality control and coordinating with us. Alan is extremely detail oriented and offered his expertise in the selection of plumbing fixtures, electrical and lighting fixtures, HVAC, millwork/doors, paint colors, flooring, cabinets throughout the home, granite counter tops, tile, mirrors and glass, security system, audio visual, window treatments, custom upholstery, central vac and clean crawl space. We now have a beautiful open floor concept. We are proud to show visitors our lovely home displaying Alan's talents.
We remodeled a recently purchased 1970's home. We raised the living room floor, removed a raised floor in the master bedroom, replaced all the floors with hardwood, moved the washer and dryer to a different location, installed recessed lighting, changed all of the interior doors, changed an interior cedar wall to an amazing feature wall and painted the interior. We used IBI as the contractor for our remodeling. The quality of work was excellent. The work was completed on budget except for change orders that we made during construction. When changes were needed we received bids, negotiated the work to be completed and electronically accepted the changes before any work was done. The workers on our project were excellent and professional. They continually asked us questions to be sure the work was done to meet our needs. They gave us advice and helped us make the right decisions. They were pleasant and made the experience fun. We weren't living in the house when the project was done, but we never felt uncomfortable about leaving knowing that the workers were going to do the right thing. We learned to be patient as there were delays. Sub-contractors were not always available, IBI had other clients that had deadlines that needed to be met; however, we had regular communications on reasons for delays and when they anticipated completion of tasks in the project. We have recommended IBI to friends and IBI would be our first contact if we need a contractor.
We have wanted a covered entrance to our house for years. We called the builders we trust most: Built in Oregon. They found an architect who specializes in houses built around 1940 and she designed an addition that looks original to the house. The original plans called for a wooden, painted hand-rail down the front steps. We wanted a cedar railing. Andrew and his team built it custom on site; it is period-true. It is absolutely gorgeous. People walk by our house now and stop to comment on its beauty. What I love about Built in Oregon is how well they communicate and how fair they are. They respect my budget and do hand-crafted, superior work. They are respectful of my property and clean the work site every day. I have nothing but the highest praise for them and will look to them any time to do work on our house.
"New Deck to Replace my Old Deck" . I bought an older house that had deck in very poor condition sinking in some places due to bad footings, rotting joist, etc. I knew when I bought the house that I would building a new deck. I was in a situation where I was going to build a new deck and change the original layout. This deck was 15 feet off the ground and built over a day-light basement. The scope and size of my project required a city permit and approval. I hired Ogren Engineering to help with a structural design for a new cedar deck for my home. I worked directly with Scott Ogren, who took the time to explain some of the key structure aspects for the project I envisioned. Scott provided insight for the footings, materials, positioning, framing, drainage considerations, seismic requirements, etc. I walked away from the first visit with Scott feeling confident about the direction of my deck project. When Scott finished the engineering specs for the deck, his work was on time, The City approved the engineering plans, there were no surprises (just what I wanted). It is always great to work with a professional, who understood my needs. I had a excellent experience working with Scott Ogren. I would use Scott's services again and have recommended his services to others. Im happy to give him a positive review here. DIY Homeowner
We have remodeled our house four times and each time used Bob Grant Construction. We have never been disappointed. BGC staff are true professionals. They pay attention to details and will take the extra steps to be sure that projects are completed to meet not only project plans but the client's vision for the work.
Bruce consulted with us about adding a 3-stop home elevator to a 1985 tri-level house. He listened well to our ideas, understood mobility issues, carefully and thoroughly measured the entire structure, researched elevators and materials, and drew up detailed plans of his design. He proposed creative use of space from closets and bathrooms to open up the flow of the house with minimal loss of usable space. All went well. Bruce was on time, a clear communicator, very efficient and knowledgeable. We have had to put the project on hold but plan to re-start it later. I can't think of anything that would have improved our experience. He did what we asked him to do, and he did it capably.
