Burkhardt Construction

General, Plumbing and Electrical Contractor.

I've been in the trades for over 40 years. I'm a licensed General, Electrical and Plumbing Contractor. I specialize in home remodeling and repair. I primarily do small remodeling and repair jobs and a great deal of electrical and plumbing service work. I usually work alone these days and have a fully equipped service van which enables me to have the majority of materials I would need to do most repairs on the spot.

Business Overview

Community Involvement

I recently etablished a nonprofit organization called the Community Home Maintenance Project of Santa Cruz. Its purpose is to train economically disadvantaged youth and homeless individuals to

provide home repairs, handicapped accessibility services and yard work assistance for low income elderly diisabled individuals and non

profit social service organizations in Santa Cruz county. I hope to be able to transition into administering

the Community Home Maintenance Project as my full time occupation. Please visit www.chmpsc.org.

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I thought that every person in the country should be entitled to a healthy safe affordfable place to live..

We started in this industry in 1975.

We describe our business as Rooted in the community

Response by Burkhardt Construction: I was personally hospitalized at the time and wasn't able to work. I had Home Advisor forward my job notifications to an individual who was handling these small jobs for me. He apparently provided unsatisfactory service and I was not aware of it. He no longer works for me. As you can see from past reviews, this low level of service was an aberration. I personally strive for excellence.

Review by in Capitola, CA
They responded to my emergency on a weekend and I was impressed with their approach to solving my blocked line by starting with a simple solution before removing toilets and snaking the line. I can t say enough for this company.

Prompt, professional, fast, very knowledgeable. Great communication skills! After a frustrating few days of trying to get a plumbing company to come over to fix a leak under my bathtub, I received an outragiously high estimate for the cost of the repairs. Contacted Home Advisors late at night. Michael from Burkhardt Construction contacted me first thing on Saturday morning and offered to go right over to assess the situation. He sent me a video of the leak and suggested a repair. He coordinated a time with my tenants, did the repair and checked on it within 24 hours. All this at a fraction of the cost I was quoted by another plumbing company. Such a positive experience! I could not be more impressed and happy with the outcome!!

Hiring Sam is like getting multiple Contractors for the price of one. He replaced a kitchen faucet, bathroom sink and faucet, and installed a bathroom light and repaired a couple other light fixtures all in one visit ! He is also VERY reasonable about his prices for labor, so when you add that to the convenience of only needing to hire one person to handle so many different types of home issues, it is great ! Give Sam a call, you will be glad you did !!

Review by a homeowner in Soquel, CA
Sam promises to to the work, but it is difficult to get him out to do the work. He had to order parts, and received them but is too busy to show up to install the parts.
Response by Burkhardt Construction: His comments are inaccurate. I went to his house (a way out in the country) to see his faucet because he didn't know the manufacturer. It was an older faucet.I ordered the parts. They were back ordered because they were out of stock.It took 3 weeks for the parts to arrive. They were sent to his house. When the parts were in, he called and I went back to his house to find that not all the parts had arrived.I reordered the parts. When they arrived I could not get aback there immediately, but went as soon as I could. In total I made three trips out there.I did not charge him for all the trips I made.I gave him good service at a reasonable price

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  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.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    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.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  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.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
