Sonoma Hill Builders, Inc.
Sustainable Design in Berkeley
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 28, 2020
We had the pleasure of working with Tom Ahearn as our project manager on our complete home renovation. Tommy is a consummate professional. Great ideas and designs are just the start- they have to be executed in the field. Forethought, preparation, meticulous attention to detail and great communication left us with a finished project which exceeded all of our expectations!!

Cardinal Custom Construction built us an amazing new home on budget and faster than expected. Dave and his team was responsive and detailed every step of the way. From weekly meetings to late night emails, he was there every step of the way.

We purchased a house from Aron Developer last year and we're very impressive on the high quality and great post-sale experience. 1. High quality: Aron Developer built the house with high quality materials and equipped with top brand appliances. Not to mention the whole design of the house is just terrific! 2. Great post-sale experience: Aron Developer provides 1-year warranty and they provide great post-sale experience. Many thanks especially to our point of contact Yunesh! Yunesh is polite and friendly, and very responsible and patient on helping us to solve all the issues we had in a prompt manner.
MacLeod Design & Construction
Sustainable Design in Berkeley
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 12, 2016
MacLeod D&C just finished rebuilding our house after a fire completely destroyed it. Other than taking longer than predicted, the project was a total success. We love the result. The design was not easy to build - odd angles all over the place and built over a swale that required a complex foundation. It took a lot of care and patience on Ian's part and the skills of several highly competent subcontractors to pull it off. Ian's professionalism, skill, and good humor made the project work - and kept us sane in the process. His ongoing relationships with the architects and his sub contractors kept communications problems to a minimum. We would definitely hire him again.
Palo Alto Building Company
Sustainable Design in Berkeley
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsApril 24, 2019
I highly recommend Palo Alto Building Company as a general contractor. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Chris Loops on our home renovation in 2015. I can recommend him highly and without reservation. Throughout the course of the renovation, Mr. Loops was a consummate professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project. He was clear in his record keeping and time log. He chose and managed the sub-contractors well. There was no better intermediary for ensuring our renovation projects were always running smoothly and at peak times. He was a great coordinator and leader with his subcontractors to follow his lead. This is because Chris exudes a level of knowledge and expertise that simply inspires trust. Our job was done with care and precision. He is a gifted carpenter and the custom cabinetry he designed and executed are perfect. What I appreciated most about Chris was his keen ability to get answers. What he did not know off the top of his head, he knew exactly where to go. I never waited more than a few minutes to hear solutions about location, equipment, cost of materials, labor and time management. With Chris on site, my day-to-day operations were always in good hands. In addition, he is extremely clean and tidy in the workplace. Chris along with his professional staff never left the worksite in disarray. They vacuumed all drywall dust daily. Mr. Loops took special care to prevent any of the job dust from trailing throughout the house. The only complexity in working with Mr. Loops is that, as he himself will tell you, good work takes time to complete. Patience is required when you work with a perfectionist. Our project took time to complete, but the estimation was 100% accurate. Palo Alto Building Company under promised, and over delivered in every aspect of the project! We had a wonderful outcome and a work of art to enjoy now.
Drömhus General Contractors
Sustainable Design in Berkeley
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsAugust 12, 2015
I am an architect and have worked with Dromhus on several projects over the past 10 years. I have always enjoyed working with them as they are professional, courteous, client and service oriented and endeavor to deliver high quality work to all of their projects. My clients have also been very happy with them and I try to recommend them to my clients whenever possible. I look forward to the next project that I get a chance to work with them on. Patrick

Bridgford Construction is amazing! They built the kitchen of our dreams. The attention to detail was unparalleled....and they were on time and on budget. I would recommend them (and do!) to anyone.
K.C. Customs Inc.
Sustainable Design in Berkeley
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMarch 10, 2014
We first encountered this company at the Sunset festival and were looking for someone to do a small project for us because we had really disliked the contractor who had just done our kitchen. They said they were more than willing to do something small so they redid a bathroom in our guest cottage and did some framing for a spice cabinet in our kitchen. I really like their appraiser but find her to be a little alarmist in terms of what problems we might encounter with permitting. (I guess it's better to be that way than to say "yeah, this will all be no problem" and then we have a lot of problems.) She had some great ideas about how to do our shower that wouldn't have occurred to us. The people who actually did the work were extremely fast and easy to communicate with. They were very available by text message and actually made great use of technology. The timing for the remodel worked out such that we were out of town while they were doing the majority of the work and they were happy to send us photos and questions by e-mail and text so that we could coordinate. I am not very picky about design and so I hadn't even thought about colors to paint the bathroom when they were done. I asked them to just pick something that looked nice and they were happy to just pick a neutral color and go with it. The shower had some leaking problems after they installed the doors but they happily came back without complaining until it was fixed to our satisfaction. All in all we were so happy with the service we got that we have asked them to help us do a much larger remodel of the entire house. Hopefully that experience will work just as well!
Jetton Construction, Inc.
Sustainable Design in Berkeley
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 29, 2012
Very professional, stand by its excellence. We used Jetton Construction for our remodeling, they do not scarfiy quality in rushing the job through, Bill Jetton is extremely easy to work with and he handles the project as one of his own. We definitely use Bill Jetton's company again.
PassivWorks, Inc. - Better Buildings
Sustainable Design in Berkeley
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsSeptember 4, 2014
Rick Milburn of Passivworks is the most thorough, honest and knowledgable professional I have ever had the pleasure to work with in building a home. I have built far too many in my lifetime, but I have never experienced such passion for excellence that Rick and his team display.You'll find less expensive quotes, but you'll likely end up paying more for that underestimate from contractors wanting to get your business. I've been there. Rick sticks to his promises on expenses and is incredibly diligent about reviewing each invoice in detail - down to the last nail. I can't recommend Rick and Passivworkds highly enough.
