looking for a general contractor

I'm desperately looking for a trustful general contractor to remodel my kitchen, the garage and paint the house.

I had a previous terrible experienced and I'd like to find someone that follow a schedule and doesn't leave unfinished job.

Please let me know if you had some good experience and has reasonable price.

Thank you

I cannot recommend Ken highly enough, though they are terribly busy and I'm not sure if he has the bandwidth to add jobs.

But at the very least, look him up and give him a call. He did a wonderful job on a multitude of things that needed to be done at our place in Berkeley last fall when we were racing to do everything well before the rains began. Wonderful contractor.

At this point he and his team have completely remodeled my kitchen (inexpensively, with IKEA hacks and doing an AMAZING job), added a room and bathroom, completely remodeled another bathroom, added major built in closets to 2 bedrooms (another IKEA hack) and done it all on a budget, on time, with great workmanship and super super nice crew. John is very easy to communicate with, completely responsive and reliable, honest to a fault, and just an exceptionally nice guy. He is about to start a retaining wall and steps in my backyard and I have recommended him to many neighbors and friends. 

I strongly recommend you Emanuel with Bay Area Pacific Construction as a general contractor for your project. Emanuel did an amazing job renovating my kitchen, garage and closets in my house. He came up with a design that extended my kitchen and expanded the storage space. Emanuel and his team are extremely reliable and professional. The guys on the job were very respectful and clean. They frequently cleaned the site as they worked. The job was completed on time and below budget. I would recommend these guys to anyone!

I would love to recommend you Emanuel of Bay Area Pacific Construction as a general contractor (phone # 510 484 5765). I am so happy we found him on BPN. I know there are many people who have very bad experiences with their contractors, but that will never be the case with Emanuel. Emanuel will go above and beyond to give you exactly what you want and for a reasonable price. He is a perfectionist, so you can trust that he will give you quality work. He was always responsive by phone and text whenever I had any concerns or questions. My wife and I are very pleased with the results of his work. He had painted our whole house and remodeled our kitchen within our tight schedule and budget. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to renovate. Best of luck! Tom
