Review by in Los Angeles, CA
Sean and Matthew were in charge of our project to build a wall to wall entertainment replacement unit for our den. Demo was on 1/7/18; install was to be on 1/11/18. Actual install was delayed until 1/15/18 because they said they wanted everything perfect. Well, the unit arrived and the entire inside was unfinished. There were no holes for the "adjustable" shelves in the upper unit, and the lower cabinet's inside shelf was not adjustable. The top of the base unit was damaged and patched. They forgot to include the slide out shelf for the DVD player and we never saw choices of stain colors, so the unit needed to restrained at our house. The base of the unit was installed but was not level, so had to be pulled out and re-installed, and the rest of the unit for TV and books attached after the base was leveled. When it came time to install our new TV, they were unable to pass the wires behind the unit to hook up the TV to the tuner, DVD, cable box, and speakers because the base unit was installed flush to the wall with no space to pass wires, so they had to cut into our wall, or take the whole thing apart again. An electrical outlet in the base of the unit was installed without the plastic cover because it would not fit. This was because the back wood panel was not cut out big enough to accommodate the cover. The cabinet guy said this was the job of the TV installer, and the TV installer said it was the cabinet guy's job. We sent photos to Matthew and called, but nobody ever showed up to fix it. Finally this November, Build A Dream reached out to finish the project, which was paid in full long ago. The owner, Shay, contacted us and scheduled his workman for last Friday at 9:00 A.M. Again, nobody showed up or called on Friday. Build a Dream would have gotten a better review, had they completed the project as promised. We are happy with the final product, but we had to keep eyes on everything, every step of the way to achieve this result. We thought that was the contractor's job!

They also replaced the brick around my fireplace with stone and did a small electrical job. The work was excellent and the finished in two days. My only complaint was that clean-up could have been better. The stone had to be cut to fit in some places and part of the saw was over my lawn. The chips were not picked up and I ended up having to clean this up myself.

Great construction company, we hired them to do pavers and outside patio. They are very fast and very professional. It took them 2 days to go complete pavers and 4 days to complete our outside patio. Mathew, project manager is very awesome! He’s always on top and very informative throughout the whole project. Definitely will hire them for future home projects!!

Review by in Mission Viejo, CA
Build a dream completed 2 bathroom remodel for me. Ty and his team were responsive and super flexible with changes. When I did not like the shower door that was first installed, Ty agreed to replace it with what makes more sense for my limited space and I only had to pay the difference. In addition, Ty sent a crew to replace the tile to remove the holes made from the original shower door. I love my bathrooms! There were scheduling challenges throughout the project, but mutual understanding and patience was appreciated. I would recommend Build-a-Dream to anyone! Super like!

Review by in Los Angeles, CA
I met Shay five years ago. Back then, I wanted to remodel my bathrooms and kitchen because we had mold. He did such a good job that I knew right away i want him to do all my future projects. He is a good guy and very trust worthy, he always addresses our concerns right away, he makes the construction in our house much easier than we remember from past experience, and I have been doing my house projects with him only since. We also called him a few years ago to pave our driveway and patio and it looks amazing still today. A year ago we called him because we wanted to knock out a wall in the kitchen and make it much bigger. The last time we did the kitchen, my husband chose the color of the cabinets. This time I chose a brighter color that I love. The kitchen now is so unique, there is a huge counter space, exactly like I dreamed, and I get comments all the time about how beautiful and how "one of a kind" it is. I love my new kitchen and I am enjoying it every day. I would recommend Build a Dream for anybody, as I had an experience that I wish for all of my family and friends.

My mom recently passed and needed. Remodel her house completely . After being praised gouged by 2 previous contractors , I was referred to build a dream . Gil and Sean were my project managers and they and they crew were amazing ! They were on time , courteous and friendly ,I LOVE LOVE LOVE the final outcome opted for quality cabinets and counter tops at a very reasonable price plus all the other extras they did for me. Based on this experience I plan on using them to update the kitchen on my other property in few months , Thank you build a dream.

I feel that they are good at selling and winning the job but regarding quality of work, that is very poor.

Review by in Van Nuys, CA
Last January, I was planning to move, and needed to update my driveway to improve the curb appeal of my house. By chance, I received a flyer regarding a home improvement company called Build a Dream. I called to schedule an appointment and met with Nick - my project manager - the very next day. I liked him immediately...his pricing and his overall attitude were great. I started work the next day. After completing my beautiful new driveway, I continued to work with Build a Dream on several additional projects, and together we have created the most beautiful house for me. Needless to say, I'm NOT moving anywhere! I couldn't be happier with the results! Not only did I update the driveway, but I updated my kitchen, both bathrooms, added new hardwood flooring throughout, painted inside and out, added solar panels, tankless water heater - you name it, we updated it! And it looks fantastic! The entire Build a Dream team is amazing - Nick, Ty, Shay, Sean and Gil have been wonderful! Always on top of every detail. All of the workers have been great - excellent job, and always clean up afterwards. Any snags along the way were dealt with immediately and fixed beyond my expectations! I highly recommend Build a Dream to anyone who is looking to improve their home.

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.

    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.

  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
