  • How close do you stay to timelines and budgets?
  • How are payments made, and when are they made?
  • What about permits?
  • How many of your customers come from repeat business, or from referrals from existing or previous customers?
  • How close do you stay to timelines and budgets?
  • What should I be asking my contractor?
  • What about materials?

      Important materials are specified in the contract. All materials are covered, however, as substitutions are sometimes unavoidable (lots of bricks run out, for example, colors of materials are sometimes no longer made), we make it clear that an equal substitution will be made but only upon your approval. For items such as lighting fixtures or doorknobs that you have not chosen when the contract is signed, a budget is determined in the contract to cover exactly what will be spent on them.

  • What is a change order?

      A change order is a written statement signed by the customer authorizing the contractor to do additional work not included in the original contract. The change order should be signed before the additional work is started, but often it is not in order to keep the project moving. The amount specified is due when the project is completed. A change order also may be written when a contractor comes across any unforeseen damage or problem.

I recently hired San Diego General Contracting Inc. to do my kitchen remodel. I am so pleased with the work they did and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a general contractor.

Paul and Diane Santos were wonderful to work with from the moment we met. I had some ideas about what I wanted to do with my remodel, but they had a vision. Not only did they have a vision of what my dream kitchen could be, but they had the knowledge and expertise to turn that dream into reality.

They completely demoed my kitchen and flooring and took down some existing walls. They relocated my sink, dishwasher, laundry facilities and refrigerator. They got rid of my outdated track lighting and installed beautiful recessed lighting. They built a new laundry closet and island and put new flooring throughout my condo. My home has been entirely transformed and the finished product is absolutely more fantastic than I ever could have imagined.

This was my first remodel in my first home so I wasn't sure what to expect and I had lots of questions throughout the process. Diane and Paul always made themselves available to all of my calls and texts. They really went above and beyond to make sure I was well informed about all the work that was being done. It is clear to me that client satisfaction is a priority for them.

I got a very fair price for the work that was done. Not only that, but they finished EARLY! They had given me an estimate of how long they thought it would take, and they finished sooner than the date on the contract. That being said, they never rushed through anything or cut any corners; I feel confident that the work they did is of the highest quality.

I'm so pleased that I chose San Diego General Contracting Inc. for my remodel. They turned my outdated condo into a home I am truly proud of and I am so grateful for all of their hard work.
