General contractor for fixer-upper


We recently moved to the east bay and might be looking to buy a home. Given the number of old homes for sale, we might be getting into a fixer upper. It would be great to get recommendations of contractors and potentially architects.

Thanks so much

I would highly recommend Baywood Building and Design.  Over 25 years I have had the chance to have them do repairs to remodels.  They are efficient, fastidious, economical (the owner finds the best, easiest solutions rather than the most expensive), and responsible.  When something didn't turn out 100%, they fixed the problem without charging additionally.  Robert, the owner, is conscientious, amiable, and thoughtful.  He pays his employees well, which I count a big plus.

I highly recommend a local company Construction Remedy. (510) 637-8973 They did a wonderful job on my home. Complete and Beautiful Remodel of my kitchen and master bathroom. Great rates and very professional! 

I recommend Feraru & Associates Building and Design, 510 228 7366. They helped us remodel our house, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and the kitchen. We had a very good experience with Sorin and the crew. They are knowledgeable, professional and reasonably priced. We interviewed seven different contractors and we are very happy we selected them. Project duration was 6 months, Sorin helped us secure the plans, permits, a very good architect and structural engineer. He connected us with his entire network of associates, suppliers and consultants to make sure the process was smooth and we built our dream home on a budget and as fast as possible. They are seasoned builders and remodelers with answers and solutions to all of our building questions. We are pleased to recommend them.
