Berg Construction
Home Builders in San Diego
"Complete master bath remodel and outdoor shower. Steve Berg is awesome!!! He was referred to us by a friend who used Berg construction for a small bath reno. We had an extremely long shower that we had made smaller due to the unused space. New tiles, shower heads, tub and completely new cabinets. Steve had an idea of the style we liked and gave us sooo many great options. He has a great eye for design and was always available when we had questions. Steve gave us a very competitive bid that included EVERYTHING. His tile guy, Julio was meticulous. Our bathroom came out even better than we imagined. We are absolutely thrilled and are considering renovating other parts of our home with Steve Berg."

Hill Construction Company
Home Builders in San Diego
"Hill Construction totally gutted and rebuilt my kitchen & breakfast room, and replaced flooring throughout my house. Pete Hill's workers have been with him for years. They were careful and considerate, which I especially appreciated since I white-knuckled it and stayed in my house for all but a few nights. Phil Hartmann, the cabinet maker, did a superb job on the custom cherry cabinets. Pete, Phil & I sat at my dining room table & did the kitchen layout. Magically, it worked & is exactly what I wanted. The demo guys had experience, and did not wreck my furniture or walls moving everything into the Pod in my driveway. There were a few minor glitches, which were handled well, and expediently. Friends suggested I request a penalty clause if the project ran past completion date: No. As I told Pete, I wanted it done right, not fast. And it was. I am very, very happy with the result, and recommend Hill Construction at every opportunity."

Select Builders
Home Builders in San Diego
"We have hired Select Builders for several large remodeling projects and would most definitely hire them again. The owner, Mike Mastrobattistia is a pleasure to work and collaborate with and is very much a team player. Mike is very experienced in all aspects of building and remodeling and has done top-notch quality work while being keeping our budget in mind. Very often Mike has saved us money by coming up with alternative solutions to tricky remodeling issues. Select Builders subs are all excellent and stand behind their work. We highly recommend Select Builders!"

Hulton Development, Inc.
Home Builders in San Diego
"Most General Contractors are ok until a change order is needed and than the problems begin with cost over runs and a delayed project. Fortunately with the owner of Hulton Development, he was very good at communicating the process and costs associated with the project and when the project had an unexpected change order, Thomas made it work and was efficient at making our concerns, his concerns. We appreciate working with a professional."

Pacific Edge Builders
Home Builders in San Diego
"Did everything they said and more. Very impressed with the finished product and their open communication throughout the process. Job had a few niche aspects that other contractors didn't want to dedicate time to solve. Cody spent the time to work through the nuances and the result was a design and finish work that exceeded our expectations. Best part of the process was I felt Cody was fair and honest from the initial bid through the last day of work. Would highly recommend."

Jantz Construction
Home Builders in San Diego
"Ryan is the consummate professional. He embodies honesty and quality, consistently exceeding our expectations in every way. Both himself and his subcontractors are clean, courteous and polite. My wife felt very comfortable being home alone with them in our house (we have four daughters as well who adored the whole crew). He has done numerous projects for us: two full bathroom remodels, a family room addition and an additional bedroom add-on. We have known Ryan and used his company over the course of 8 years. Look no further, he is the best!!!"

What do new home builders do?


For residential home builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform local market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the San Diego market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. Custom builders also obtain the necessary permits.

A good custom home builder in San Diego has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on local zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home builders: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

House builders are responsible for ensuring that the home-building project sticks as closely as possible to the specified timetable, particularly in the event of change orders. Custom and luxury home builders in San Diego also need interpersonal skills to deal with clients of all types, soothe frazzled nerves, negotiate conflicts and resolve problems.

Questions to ask a prospective custom home builder in San Diego:


  • How long have you been in the home building business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • May I see a current jobsite?
  • Can you give me the addresses of some houses you have built?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • How will I be charged for parts and materials?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What is your policy for change orders?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
