Rebozzi Construction Inc.
From beginning to the end of construction we were very pleased with Rebozzi Construction. They exceeded our expectations. Having never done construction of any kind, we did not know exactly what to expect. After filtering through the contractor bids, and reading all the positive reviews online through Yelp and the Better Business Bureau, we felt it was the right decision to choose Rebozzi Construction. Rick Rebozzi was the most affordable, his personality/character showed pure genuineness, he was polite, courteous, outgoing, reliable, dependable and genuinely cares about his customers instead of just making a profit. He took us to other location sites to show us the quality of his work. From the first day to the final day of construction, all of the employees, from demolition, concrete, building, painting, cabinetry, tile, counter tops, to the electrical, etc. were on time, efficient, courteous, polite, knowledgeable, quick, and made sure anything they worked on was done with 100% quality satisfaction, knowledge, and safety. They kept up in keeping the area safe and clean, clearing out all debris and trash immediately. We had a few minor set backs found during the construction (not relating to Rebozzi Construction or his crew) that were properly dealt with immediately. The opening supervisor, Scott, and the closing supervisor, Joel, were also very detail oriented, reliable, dependable, courteous and knowledgeable. They were on site daily and involved with each step of the construction and the employees to ensure everything ran smoothly and safely. Rick, Scott, Joel, and the office staff made sure we were informed each step of the way and did not proceed unless we understood the next step and gave our permission to move forward. The office staff was extremely polite and easy to get into touch with, via email, phone, or text. They promptly responded to my emails and text messages. Not once did I reach the office voice mail. During the entire duration of the construction, the office staff emailed a weekly updated step-by-step schedule in order for us to know exactly what to expect each day and time during the week.Construction was completed one month ahead of schedule even with several additional projects added on by us (the home owners). A couple of weeks after construction was completed, Rick Rebozzi stopped by to follow up with us to ensure we were completely satisfied and to see if there was anything else he could do for us. Overall, if there was a grade higher than an A+, that is what we would rate Rebozzi Construction and his team. I would highly recommend Rebozzi Construction to anyone, whether it is a small, medium or large project. We were blown away by the customer service and the high quality results.

It's been a few weeks now since I've had the pleasure of working with George but I promised him, and he was very thankful, that I would write up a review for him.I found a few different painting contractors online and through friends. I called a few and of the ones that actually answered or called back, George gave off a good vibe from the beginning. We talked generally about what I needed done (basically full interior) and started telling me about some of the top notch products he uses that are "greener", less smell, etc. I had researched paints and knew of some of the brands, but I really appreciated the extra time George took to give me a quick primer from a pro's point-of-view. We talked price and the quote he gave me was very competitive. I gave George my schedule, and told him I was working with a different contractor to get flooring installed. He recommended doing the painting first and then having the flooring installed. The plan was that he would remove the baseboard and paint all the way down, since the flooring guy was going to put in new baseboard.George estimated that it would take 2-3 days to complete the interior. On the big day, George and his crew, showed up on time, clean, and ready to work. He went into project manager mode and talked to his crew about what they were going to do and they started a few minutes after arriving. At this point, I left the house with the confidence that George and the crew would get things done right. I came back after a couple of hours since I was back in the area. The level of detail in just prepping was of really high quality. I left knowing the rest of the job would be done at the same level of quality. Let's just say I was right, as are the rest of the folks with the reviews on here. The house looked amazing - my wife was super happy. I walked a bit looking in the corners, or in top of the closets or laundry room to see if they did everything and they did. My wife and I couldn't find one thing to complain about or have touched up. George saw how happy we were and we told him it was great, but he was still concerned about our satisfaction and made sure we checked everything. He told us that if we did find anything to just give him a call and he'd take care of it.Would I recommend George? Definitely. I will plan on calling him again for any painting contractor needs. Nowadays this level of professionalism and a focus on customer service is so hard to find. Kudos on the naming of his company because he does deserve an A+.

We just had George and his team paint our hallway and bedroom, including 8 interior doors, a new back hallway door, and a new bay window with window seat and cabinet underneath. We had just had the walls smoothed flat by someone else, and he took the time to carefully examine them and point out small surface problems so they could be repaired before he began to paint. Then he spent hours vacuuming the walls so no dusty wall-mud residue would remain to mar the paint. He is so meticulous – and he was so helpful with color coordination, what order to do things in, and even future selection of flooring! He has a real artist’s sense of color, mood, and attention to detail, and I'm so happy we took his advice on using two colors in the bedroom. The final result is beautiful! We are going to do the other two bedrooms next and of course George will be our painter for those and any future projects. We felt totally comfortable leaving him in the house alone, which is very important. Sometimes I would arrive home after work at 6 and there would be George, finishing up some last detail before cleaning up for the evening. We are so excited with the finished job and highly recommend him to anyone. He is a real treasure.... Thank you George!

Plantinum Builders Inc
Green Construction Projects - Being an avid environmentalist, my job was to construct residential and commercial properties based on green building standards. The focus of these projects is to build properties that are sustainable, environmentally-friendly and healthy for occupants. In keeping with the trend, a designer and builder like myself was entirely responsible for incorporating green building standards into construction projects that created buildings with higher environmentally friendly content, better air quality and improved energy efficiency. I was on the lookout for a construction company that adhered to these standards, keeping their experience and expertise in mind.Platinum Builders Inc. is a Bay Area construction company that follows and incorporates the guidelines of the US Green Building Council and LEED standards of construction. Many project owners believe that green building standards are prohibitively expensive but this company endeavors to educate them on the cost-effectiveness of green construction. The company has a simple philosophy and that is to deliver the best value in building to clients through integrity, honesty and professionalism.

Tenant improvement with optimum construction services Tenant improvement is the key to building and establishing a business. During the past, the conventional approach for construction projects comprises of hiring a contractor and designer separately to construct a building. However, in recent times, the commercial design-build procurement method changes this methodology with a more convenient option for clients by granting them a single-point of accountability in an effort to decrease overall costs and risks. This method is adopted by Platinum Builders Inc., a construction management company in the Bay Area.One of the areas of proficiency for this company is in tenant improvement. They partner with architects by working with them constantly, to create the right type of tenant improvement. They have also established a rapport with a range of skilled and reliable subcontractors whose services are harnessed in all design and construction projects. I prefer to work with Platinum Builders because of their superior design processes, practical solutions and cost awareness.

J & D Construction
I did not think building my dream home was possible on the budget I had saved up and after endless interviews with perspective contractors, hopes of building anytime soon had been smashed. That's when J&D Construction came to the rescue and made it happen. The day I met Joe I confidently knew I was in good hands and he would take care of business with no messin' around. I had many interviews of perspectivie contractors and like many of you reading have probably experienced, it is hard to come by a contractor who you can count on, takes their line of work seriously, works time efficiently and goes the extra mile, dependably! Joe puts his heart into his work and in an unbelievably timely manner, met above and beyond my standards and expectations. Whether it's remodeling or new construction, Joe is the man for all your home improvement needs! I can't wait to use his ROCKSTAR TALENT again for future construction. Keep up the good work boys and thanks again for building my beautiful dream home!

I have known George & Team for many years, and was instantly imporessed. I totally trust his operation, and can leave him my key to do the tasks while I'm at work. Extremely conscientious, dedicated, and a true perfectionist who goes "Above & Beyond" your expectations. Four years ago, he painted the entire outside of my house, inside, mouldings, kitchen/bath cabinets, etc. which was a key factor in getting a good selling price during the lowest point in the economy. When I moved to my new condo, he painted everything and even repaired major leak damage from upstairs tenant to perfect condition. People comment all the time on what a fantastic paint job I have in my home. The "finishing touches" that George always adds really makes it stand out! He coordinates everything perfectly, knows how to estimate time and money, and coordinates everything with your schedule. What a FIND! THANK YOU George for your continued excellence!! Barb

Bay Light Electric
Raymond and his assistant are probably the best contractors we have used at our house. We used them to install recessed lighting in our main room and hallway.They are very professional and courteous. They installed our recessed lighting with care for our property. They covered the work area with a cloth and did all the clean-up afterwards. They also measured out the room and showed me various options for the layout. In the hallway they showed me the right places to put the lights to maximize the effect. Another good thing about Bay Light is that they show up when they say they will show up. No waiting around.Finally, I had some other electrical items at my house that needed to be looked at. They spent the time to look at and fix an outside sensor light as part of the overall project. They took care of fixing the light as a courtesy. We will definitely use Bay Light Electric for future projects.

Calgc
We were absolutely tired of our old drab kitchen and decided to give it a make over. We contacted CAL GC, and after meeting with their team of consultants they sketched out a plan for out kitchen that was beyond what we even thought was possible. They gave us the estimate and we were blown away at the cost. They covered every detail of the job in the estimate including the estimated time of completion. The reason I even took the time to write this review was because they actually billed us less than the estimate because they were able to save on some of the material costs and passed that savings along to us. The honesty and integrity of this construction company is what impressed me the most.I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a full kitchen remodel.

A fantastic job by A+ Painting on the exterior and interior painting of our houses.We used A+ Painting recently to paint the interior of our new 2 story house and the exterior of our single story house. Both jobs finished on time with superior result. And the price of A+ Painting was the lowest among the three job bids that we received. George took time at the end of each job to circling around the house and making sure that everything was done properly and would retouch where needed. George even went beyond the contract to help caulking to wood open joints in trim for all the windows with no extra fee. A great appreciation to George and his crew! I would recommend A+ Painiting to everyone.
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
