Review by in Carlsbad, CA
It was my good luck that I found First Choice Home Improvements through a friend who remodeled a master bathroom recently with FCHI. She told me about her positive experience and I when went to her home and saw the quality work in her beautiful new bathroom, I called FCHI for an estimate to remodel two bathrooms in my condo. I had been thinking of remodeling for several years but had not been able to get a highly recommended referral from friends or colleagues. Mike and his team are so easy to work with and very responsive to questions and assist with choosing materials. They provided many options for the custom-built vanities, shower tile and trim, faucets, light fixtures and paint which made the selection process easy and stress-free. During the 5 weeks, they kept the project moving on schedule and finished on the day that was promised when I signed the contract. This was my first remodeling project and I absolutely love my two new bathrooms! My experience with FCHI was extremely positive so if youà ¢à  à  re looking for a dedicated, professional and highly skilled team, FCHI is the only contractor to call.
Response by First Choice Home Improvements, Inc.: Thank you Lynne! It was such a pleasure to work with you on your project. We are so happy you love your finished master bathroom. Thank you for the review. We hope to work with you on future projects. FCHI

Review by in Solana Beach, CA
This company is very professional. They were very thorough, explained things to us when we had questions, they worked well together , were very positive, very friendly. They did very high quality work, their time schedule for completion was accurate and they maximized all available space in this small condo kitchen. I whave space for everything, and the design is so very user friendly. When it was finished the kitchen designer came with such practical advise regarding best use of storage, that I give thanks everyday that I found this wonderful company.
Response by First Choice Home Improvements, Inc.: It was a pleasure working with you on your kitchen remodel, it turned out great! Our number one goal is for you to love the end product and have a great experience through the process. Thank you for letting us know we were able to do this for you. We look forward to helping you in the future with any other remodel needs you may have. Thanks for the excellent review, we really appreciate it.

Review by in Solana Beach, CA
We called First Choice Home Improvements because of their 5 star/grade A reviews; we chose them after meeting Mike and being impressed by his experience, knowledge, integrity, reasonable quote, and understanding of our vision for our kitchen remodel. We highly recommend First Choice because we found them to be... RESPONSIVE: We appreciated the timely, positive, and thorough communication with everyone involved, including Rena in the office who is very helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. We always knew what was happening and what came next. They were very responsive to our questions and requests for slight modifications of the plan. WELL-ORGANIZED, RELIABLE, AND EFFICIENT: There was no downtime; they were here every day, all day, and the job was finished ahead of schedule. The crew members are First Choice employees, not subcontractors, and they take pride in their company. SKILLED: Dennis and Brandyn are very skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable in cabinets, tile, paint, electrical, and water, and gas plumbing. They are experts and they did a great job! RESPECTFUL OF BEING IN OUR HOME: They took care to a contain the work area and clean-up daily. We look forward to working with First Choice Home Improvements again on our next remodeling project. Fran and Bill F.Jan. 30, 2019.
Response by First Choice Home Improvements, Inc.: Thank you so much, Fran, It was a pleasure working with you and Bill. We are so happy that you love your new kitchen, and that you had such a great experience with our company. We look forward to working with you on future projects.

We hired First Choice for a complete kitchen renovation. They did an excellent job. Mike and his team have integrity and were committed to carrying out our vision for our kitchen to the very last details. They communicated effectively and efficiently throughout the project and listened when we had requests. I would recommend them and use them again for future projects.

Work was done in a reasonable time and they cleaned up each day. Not only did they show up on time, they kept me informed thru out the job. Excellent work and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Review by in Poway, CA
We hired First Choice Home Improvements after meeting with and getting bids from several contractors. We easily decided to go with First Choice because we felt that the owner, Mike, understood the vision for our bathroom, were confident in his integrity and ability to communicate, and they came in with the best bid. Mike said we just need to communicate and his guys would work until we were 100% happy. We were not disappointed on any level. The First Choice crews were outstanding, professional, and easy to work with. They worked until excellence was achieved in every area. We are completely confident in referring First Choice Home Improvement for any remodel job and hope to work with them again soon on a kitchen remodel. Easily 5 out of 5 stars!!

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.
