Featured Reviews for General Contractors in Hawaii
Moorhead and Company, Inc. General Contractor
General Contractors in Hawaii
"They were very professional & answered all my questions. They also followered up after our initial appointment both with email and phone calls. Unfortunately we had to put our remodeling project on hold so we have not used their actual services."

Barker Kappelle Construction, LLC
General Contractors in Hawaii
"We hired BKC to do our major house renovation. We could not be happier with the results. I am a details kind of guy. Brett and his crew (in particular, Matt- the foreman) took tremendous pride in their work, and the results reflect their attention to detail. They were always very responsive to our calls, emails etc. They finished the project on time, and within budget. We liked them so much, we hired them again to do another project after the first one was completed."

Signature Homes Kauai
General Contractors in Hawaii
"We used Signature Homes Kauai to install our kitchen cabinets, coordinate plumbing and carpentry issues for our kitchen remodel. All contractors who worked on our project were well- equipped and thorough. Signature Homes helped us think outside the box to get the look and function we wanted while keeping to our project budget and schedule. Since some of the project fell outside their scope, I continued to rely on input and recommendations from the team. We are very pleased with the end result and enjoy our new kitchen."

BY DESIGN Builders
General Contractors in Hawaii
"By Design Custom Remodeling is one of my favourite renovation companies to follow online. Brian and Michelle have like me been specializing in linear shower drain installations and building luxury showers in Kihei Maui for years now. We worked together on a project last year and the end result was truly "Top Notch". The care and attention to detail is outstanding. I wish they worked here in Vancouver so they could help out more of my clients. Better yet I wish they flew me out to work with them! When building a luxury shower with a linear shower drain it is so important to seek out installers with the right team behind them. There is a lot more to this than just picking a grill or a drain - that's the easy part. Pick the team first. Michelle is a treat to work with and she has always sounded upbeat and cheery. Her knowledge in the design and bathroom business is impressive. Brian is the work horse and "White Hat" of the company and makes sure that everything is built sound and meets his and Michelle's Highest Standards. If you’re on the Island of Maui or anywhere near Kihei-Wailea, Hawaii - give them a ring. You'll be glad you did. You can catch them at this number (808) 264-7207 or by email: brian@bydesignmaui.com "

Greg Putman Construction
General Contractors in Hawaii
"Our house sold quickly and we needed to buy another. None really matched the quality that we had built. Found one with possibilities. We need someone with experience. Greg and his crew went to work the moment we had keys! Kitchen and bath counters were replaced with granite,sinks and toilets changed, carpeting ripped up and wood flooring put down after leveling the concrete, baseboards installed, cupboards relocated, ice maker and bar refrigerator installed. All this was completed in 10 days!! After moving in, plans for more cupboards and a large lanai were made. One of the qualities we admire in Greg is his thought processes. He thinks projects through, suggests changes and/or improvements to our ideas. Building problems are usually avoided by his thought process. Greg is a very respected person in the building industry, as well as, the County Planning Dept. His attention to details, budgets and quality has given him this reputation. He is surrounded by subcontractors who understand the quality that Greg demands. We are constantly recommending Greg Putman Construction to anyone who wants their project done correctly, cost efficiently and in a timely manner. Greg and his crew are the very best in the business. They are trustworthy and enjoyable people who were even able to make friends with our three dogs!! Talk with Greg and you will understand. Mahalo."

"I'm a full time Broker in Wailea for over 25 years, Timber Creations did an unbelievable job in a remodel for my client who bought an amazing property in a fantastic location but needed much work to bring it up to their standards.

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 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 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 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 Hawaii to see if they’re what you expect for your job. Once you do secure your local contractors, read the contract very carefully to be sure everyone is on the same page.

Questions to ask prospective 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?
