Peterson Remodeling, Inc.
General Contractors in La Jolla, CA
"We had an incredibly positive experience working with Peterson Remodeling. After hearing horror story after horror story about the trauma of remodeling we were extremely wary to start. However, Ray Peterson and his crew were professional, prompt, conscientious, upbeat, timely and responsive to all our questions and concerns. They were really easy to work with. The project came in close to budget and finished within the timeframe anticipated. It was such a good experience working with Peterson Remodeling that when we had a house fire six months post remodel we called Ray and immediately and had him rebuild. We highly recommend them!!"

Classic Home Improvements
General Contractors in La Jolla, CA
"This review focuses on the selection process and structured of bid presentation of CHI. After reading many online reviews, it is clear that this is a critical phase and we hope to provide you some insights with our experience and the reasons why we chose ‘Classic Home Improvements’ (CHI). We read in detail about Do and DON’Ts when embarking in major remodeling projects. Following city approval of our remodeling plans we initiated the search process for a contractor to work with for our Kitchen and First floor remodeling. We interviewed at least 6 independent contractors and companies established in San Diego. We however, did not feel major connection to anyone. We learned of CHI after receiving a known home magazine. After our hesitation to call someone not directly referred by ‘word of mouth’ we decided to give them a chance. From the beginning, CHI process was positively different: an online operator set up our appointment and kept us informed prior to their visit. Then Mr. George Brown, the lead Design person contacted me 5-days prior to his visit and I provided him all our plans, and specifications by e-mail. When we met George, few things were clear in the style of CHI: they reviewed plans carefully prior to their visit, listen to costumer perceptions and communication was clear and assertive. In speaking with George, it was evident that he had years of experience and provided insights for our project. Subsequently, George came back to our house as he offered within 10 days of his initial visit. During the interim, CHI administrative assistants will set up appointment details. Contrary to many of our prior experiences, George presented in person a detailed, itemized scope of work and proposal. We discussed our fixed budget and time line. His bid was not among the lower ones, but we felt right for a reputable, formal company that will delivered outstanding craftsmanship work. Prior to signing contract, we requested some clarifications regarding certain details of scope of work, and terms of workmanship warranty provided by CHI. George was extremely responsible and CHI honored everything we had discussed and agreed verbally in our personal meetings. This speaks about the integrity of George and CHI. Within 5 days of signing the contract we met Kelley, our ‘product selection coordinator’, a true knowledgeable, well-mannered professional to work with. CHI has clearly delivered in an efficient timeline a very professionally structured protocol to star-up the process of our remodeling. We feel that it was worth to wait close to 9 months to final meet George and CHI. They take seriously costumer’s perceptions and their dream projects. They clearly work with integrity and costumer’s satisfaction in mind. We are looking forward to the implementation phase of our project and to show you the final pictures of our project when completed! January 2016: The present review focus on the implementation of the project as I already described our bid process with CHI. Our project lasted 3.5 months and involved major structural kitchen remodeling with renovation of our entire flooring in our first floor. Although we had upfront all architectural, designer and engineer plans, it was a plus to work with a professional company that reviewed every single detail before, during and after project completion. Office: Yvonne and Kelley, thoroughly constructed 3D visual plans (20/20 CAD) and reviewed scales of our project. Indeed, they picked up details that were overlooked in our original plans that could have affected ultimate look of our remodeling project. Dan, the manager, well rounded and organized, provided all the required legal documents timely as agreed prior to start the construction according to law. Nicole was timely providing me the pdf documents of every single payment and keep me updated with balance and logistics of the project. Project manager: Mr. Larry Chase, deserves a special mention, he is well-manner and spoken, impeccable listener and detail oriented. Trust him. He will make sure every sub-contractor delivers impeccable work as detailed in contract and plans. More importantly, if something unexpected happens, he will immediately take care of the matter and fix it for you. For example, resolving an unexpected plumbing issue. I'd like to highlight his work integrity, reflected in two things: stayed within budget and even credited money when final labor was not performed as originally planned. I used this credit to complete some additional home work. A special note is the honesty of every worker involved, this is paramount whenever you have 'strangers' working closely with your most treasure asset: your family. After going through this experience my recommendations to the average educated costumer are the following: first, do your homework and put in writing as detailed as possible your scope of work. Second, plan unexpected 15% for both your budget and any provided agreed timeline with your constructor. I found this last part very important, because like when having a major surgery, if something unexpected arise during the surgery, you don't want your surgeon to rush but rather to do it well and only once. I believe that the same concept applies to construction. Third, if you are a formal, detailed-oriented person and like quality, consider strongly CHI, they will exceed your expectations for their work integrity, workmanship and well-planned process. Certainly, they are a cost effective-option for the outstanding quality of work they deliver. I recommend CHI highly"

"Shear Force construction built an outdoor family room in 2015 that we absolutely love! They did a great job keeping us comfortable during the remodel (we lived in the house) and really made us feel satisfied with the whole experience.

Priority 1 Project Management
General Contractors in La Jolla, CA
"I had the pleasure of working with Ed Earl for four years as he served as the Project Manager for the design and construction of a 27,000 sf estate home. Ed is a great team leader because he always has the vision of the client foremost and he makes sure that everyone on the project is working together effectively and efficiently to achieve that end result. Ed is extremely organized, focused and very articulate in communicating the client’s objectives and making it happen. I would highly recommend Ed to any homeowner undertaking a high-end remodel or custom home construction project."

SoCal Contractor
General Contractors in La Jolla, CA
"As one of the top photographers in the field of architectural spaces, I've traveled the world and seen the best construction one can imagine. On many occasions I've had the pleasure of spending time photographing projects built by SoCal Contractor. From a $14,000,000 in the Hollywood Hills home to many A-list celebrities, to a 3 acre Spanish Revival estate on world famous Laurel Canyon, to more modest loft style homes, to desert retreats, to beach front residences, SoCal Contractor nails it every time. The work is varied and unique, with attention to the smallest detail making the projects stand out among other high end spaces. Two of the projects I shot for SoCal Contractor made it to the covers of national magazines. I've also had the pleasure of meeting the owners of the homes and they have only wonderful things to say about the SoCal team and you can clearly see they are beaming with pride over their enviable homes. I personally know the owner of SoCal Contractor, Roy, and can tell you, he is a stand up guy who really enjoys what he does. I'd recommend SoCal Contractor to anyone who wants a job done well, no matter how challenging."

Precision Home Design & Remodeling
General Contractors in La Jolla, CA
""As good as it gets!" I wish I were able to give more than just 5 stars rating to this company. I've come across construction companies in the past, but the experience I've had with Precision is unparalleled. They show utmost professionalism on each level of interaction, from customer service, to communication, to end result. I truly believe I've had the best home remodeling company working on my room addition project. We started with the architectural plans, that took approx 10 weeks to approve. Measurements, drafts, suggestions were accurate the first time, and after the plans were approved by the City, we moved on with the project. Each day of work, I was getting a full report on the progress and/or issues that we were having. During the entire project we were constantly living in the house, and first I was worried when the work began. I didn't exactly know what to expect, but Steve, our project manager, was here every day, overseeing the process, and giving us a heads up a day in advance as to what to expect. My extra 490 sq.ft. master bedroom with bath came out absolutely incredible. The whole project was very smooth (obviously there were some problems along the way, but Steve handled everything and resolved the issues fast). Over all the project took almost 6 months, including the plans. I will not consider any other company for my future home improvement projects, except Precision Home Design & Remodeling. The name of the company speaks for itself! Steve and the whole crew have not just my gratitude, but that of my whole family as well."

What is a general contractor?


General, or construction contractors, are often known as project managers. They oversee the entire remodeling or new home construction project and facilitate all day-to-day tasks that move it toward completion. A La Jolla general building contractor will work with your architect to review plan as you build a house and ensure everything is in place before work is started as well as arrange for permits and necessary inspections. While good local home improvement contractors in La Jolla will have the skills to handle certain tasks onsite, such as carpentry, he or she is also responsible for hiring subcontractors for the majority of jobs, such as electrical work, painting or plumbing. In addition, the general contractor should be on-site regularly to inspect the progress and resolve issues. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of general contractors: Architects & Building Designers, Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

Home remodeling contractors are a must for successful completion of a renovation. Because of this, it's essential that you do your homework before deciding on the right general contractor in La Jolla as you remodel or build a house. Inspect bids carefully. Was it ready when the contractor promised it? Was the bid for building a home unusually high or low? Each of these things can be very telling: A late bid may reflect timing standards, and an off-the-mark bid could be code for a pricey premium or a deliberate underbid to score the remodeling job. You should call references, carefully read reviews and visit completed projects in La Jolla, CA to see if they’re what you expect for your job. Once you do secure your local La Jolla contractors, read the contract very carefully to be sure everyone is on the same page.

Questions to ask prospective La Jolla general contractors:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • What qualities do you look for in your subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
