From the first phone call from James to the end of the job he listened, suggested and took his time to explain why and how. He was on the job site w/ his crew which is what we wanted. We felt confident with James and were happy with the end result.

James Kennedy is a wonderful human being and a superlative contractor. James returns call when he says he will, is always on time ,very experienced and responsible, very fair and knowledgeable. He is a man of his word and he delivers ahead of time. The personal ethics and work ethics extend to the members of his crew who are first class in their skills, quality of product, timeliness, sense of honor in themselves and respect for others. They were always on time, demonstrated their trade skills which included problem solving , critical thinking, preparation, design and execution of tasks with the care and eye for detail as if working on their own home. The latter is evidenced by taking some extra time at days end ,to put things in cleaned up order at the end of the workday, having their own sense of not just restoring order but actually improving the environment. In my daily experiences, when I observe someone doing a really good job with a great attitude I look forward to complimenting them and passing that along to their employer or supervisor. These are the people that may not make the headlines but ,more importantly , they contribute to our lives pleasant , civil, less stressful and out a higher quality. I am very grateful that James Kennedy of KDOC returned my request for services Himself!( vs several robo -call pre qualifiers-ughhh!) That was a very fortunate day for me! I love my re-do of my patio and enjoy it every day. I could not be more pleased with the results. I can certainly give my full recommendation of KDOC construction to everyone and I will absolutely utilize their services again as needed. R. Joseph , San Clemente, Ca.

They were very professional. They came in and did the work fast and efficient. I felt like I got 100% attention. They didn’t have side jobs going on. They cleaned up every day! I would highly recommend this company!

5.0 Sheryl B. Huntington Beach, CA

I was extremely pleased with KDOC on replacing my pergola and patio. James and his crew were great and professional. The crew cleaned up everyday before leaving. I appreciate James suggestions to accommodate my special needs.

We hired KDOC Construction to replace cracked flagstone and warped Trex with concrete overlay in flagstone pattern. James and his crew were professional, prompt and did excellent work

***WE HAVE TERMITES THROUGHOUT OUR BRAND NEW DECK DUE TO SHODDY CONSTRUCTION AND LACK OF FINISH WORK NOT DONE BY KDOC CONSTRUCTION. *** We have a beautiful-looking new deck which KDOC Construction finished in May. I say *beautiful-looking* because at first glance - it is. However, the work on the deck, and especially the clean up, was never completed by James. THIS IS OUR BIGGEST PROBLEM WITH THEIR WORK: After the wood railing was installed, I asked James to caulk or fill in the spaces between the spindles, the horizontal wood support beams, and the posts, with some sort of sealant. He said no - they are fine. Well, now they are not. We have termites at every post due to the spaces left in between the wood. Now we are stuck paying to have the entire deck fumigated. Less than 4 months after construction. In addition to the above issue, James left rebar from our old deck sticking up - knowing it needed to be ground down for safety reasons, a patch of spilled and dried concrete in the middle of the patio. Also, demoed our bbq countertop with promises to replace it (as an additional job) but thought later that the job was too small for him - which left us with a block wall and rebar for most of the summer. Initially, interactions with James were easy, friendly, and amicable, but quickly turned very strained when I asked him to finish the above items with no success. The nice guy that I stupidly paid before the last details were done quickly disappeared. So sad.

5.0 Robert T. Laguna Beach, CA

KDOC has a great crew who work hard and are customer centric. James is a pleasure to work with and is eager to please.

5.0 Dan B. Newport Beach, CA

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.

  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
