We engaged with Lavan in 2019 for our addition and full remodel project. We were looking to add about 500 sq ft and do a full remodel of our existing house (plumbing, electrical and bathrooms included). We talked to a few contractors and selected Lavan because they were the only ones that explained the process in detail, provided us insights about what to consider etc. Fahid and Moein spent multiple sessions even before they had been shortlisted. The permits were delayed because of Covid and we started our project in Sept 2020. Fahid and Moein did everything they could to get started as soon as possible even with Covid and supply chain delays. It was a big project and we were very anxious. But overall we had a great experience with them. Lavan (Fahid and Moein in particular) listened to our needs, took accountability and even improved their process based on feedback. Throughout the construction phases, they were ready to take our inputs and adjust to our needs where possible. They implemented better project communication when we gave them the feedback. They helped us select quality materials for flooring, cabinets, countertops etc. In any large construction projects there are going to be bumps in the road- and we did too. But Lavan always resolved those to our satisfaction. I have heard horror stories of delays from other people, but Lavan finished our project on time. I would gladly work with Lavan again if there is an opportunity in the future.

Donâ t use Lavan Construction unless you enjoy being threatened by your contractor. Specifics: 1. Lavan does not know the permit rules, even though they insist they do. We were told by Moein and Fahid that our cement landings MUST come up to our door, no step down. They told us, word for word, â trust us; we are the professionals. We know.â When I saw a step-down landing at the new construction across the street and asked Moein to investigate, his answer was no! So my husband and I had to take off work to meet with the inspector. Everything Lavan told us was WRONG. And why did we have to meet with the inspector? Isnâ t that the job of our contractor? 2. Fahid would regularly yell at me for simple questions because he does not speak good English and gets frustrated, so he yells. Yet once I swore in front of him (not At him), and then Lavan threatened to quit. They can yell at me but I can not swear in front of them? 3. Tried to double charged us for items like baseboards and moldings. Watch very carefully. Moein has no professional training in accounting, so they are very disorganized. 4. We bought a very expensive vanity for our master bath and Lavan decided it was OK to cut off the legs without our permission, which totally changed the look. Their reason was because they wanted the cabinet to go right up to the shower stall glass, so we would not have to worry about seeing dirt there. But they are so sloppy they installed the cabinet WITHOUT CLEANING IT, so now we have dirt to view from our shower forever! 5. Aggressive and abusive when asking for checks: sometimes before we can even verify the work is completed, I would get multiple calls while at work. Moein would not reply to emails or texts for 1-2 weeks, but if he wants a check, look out, because he will aggressively call you multiple times. He would repeatedly tell us he can not pay his workers on time. Why can't he pay his workers on time because if they are a legitimate business, they should have 20% cash reserves? 6. Weekly schedule updates are useless because Lavan changes these dates at will and for any reason they want. Also the list does not provide dates to a final inspection, why not? 7. Our punch list took 2 years to complete! TWO YEARS!!! There was a 6 month delay for COVID but that still leaves 1.5 years to complete our punch list. I know Moein will reply that I am a terrible person, but all I was doing was trying to manage our project. How would you feel if your contractor threatened you while your house was torn apart with no kitchen? They made the process awful and their work is very sloppy, as stated above on #4. DO NOT HIRE LAVAN!

Response from Company:

Dear Maria, thank you for sharing your feedback and for taking the time to write your review. We are sorry your experience did not match your expectations. While we are stunned with the review, considering you signed a document stating that we completed the project per contract to your complete satisfaction with the timeline and quality of work. Nevertheless, we do not believe you are a "terrible person," as you mentioned in your review, and instead, we do value your opinion and will use these comments to improve ourselves and our services to do better in the future. Thanks.

We engaged Lavan construction for renovation of 2 bathrooms and addition of a number of storage closets in our house. We thoroughly enjoyed working with them beginning from the design phase to construction. The 3d renderings that Lavan provided of the choices we made for the bathroom stall shower was very helpful to visualize the final look. The tile work in particular was excellent. We added a couple of items in the end and lavan was able to accommodate it. We worked with Robert , lavanâ s cabinet designer, to design a walk in wardrobe, kitchen pantry and hallway linen cabinet. His designs were accurate and focussed on utility. The quality of the material used and the execution was perfect to the last detail. Robert himself installed all of them in under a day. Overall we are very pleased with our experience with Lavan. Worth the money we spent.

Our family decided to remodel our outdated kitchen, update the master bathroom and create an entryway bookcase and mudroom for our home. We looked around for a company that understood our needs and desires with the project and was easy to work with. Lavan was one several contractors we received a proposal and conducted an interview with. From very early on, we knew that they were someone we wanted to work with. They were transparent and upfront about this adventure we were both about to embark on as partners. We started this project together and unbeknownst to all of us, learned we had all just entered a global pandemic. These are unprecedented times, there were many challenges that Covid-19 presented and the team at Lavan stood by our side and continued to work with us to ensure that we could continue and do what we could during this time. While the project took longer than expected, the team at Lavan never left our side and continued to find ways to keep things moving as best they could and complete a beautiful remodel that we are very satisfied with. We found that Moein and Fahid were very responsive to our questions and concerns throughout this project. Even when things didnâ t always go as planned, the Lavan team was good about addressing any challenges and communicating with us that there would be an update and a solution. Fahidâ s knowledge and experience came through many times to help keep things moving, either dealing with various inspectors or sub contractors and navigating any unforeseen construction challenges. While our aesthetics may not have 100% matched at all times, we found him to be understanding, having great insight and vision and his communication style with both my wife and I helped to continue to put us at ease throughout the project. Lavan is a family run business. Throughout our project we met most of the family. They are a growing business with a new design center and continue to look at ways to evolve their business to provide quality results for their clients. Lavan is built on honest hardworking people that you get to know and care about because they in kind care about you and your home!

Fahid, Moein and the entire Lavan team are just terrific. Extremely professional, polite, reliable, and from start-to-end just delivered as promised. Project was completed on time and at cost, and they consistently above and beyond to make sure we were happy. Work product is of highest quality, and the team is super responsive and friendly. We would work with them ahead in a heart beat and recommend Lavan to anyone!

Working with Moein, Fahid and their team was a dream come true. We had a ton of work to do to make our new home move-in ready and Lavan surpassed our expectations on every dimension. Not only did they finish the project on-time (despite several â surprisesâ we all came across as work started getting done), but they met our budget expectations and did everything (and more) in their power to help us get the highest quality for the lowest price. They were beyond professional - they truly became part of our family through this project. They were trusted partners throughout - reliable, honest, organized and always with our best interests in mind. As someone who grew up in a construction family, I was overly impressed with the level of knowledge Fahid has. He is truly an expert in his craft, while being the nicest person to work with! I trusted his opinion and wouldnâ t make a construction or design decision without his input. Fahid was also the only contractor (of 6 we met before hiring Lavan) that didnâ t push their opinions too strongly or with arrogance at all - he always gave his expert opinion, but also always said it was most important that we were happy with our choices. Overall, a fabulous experience - if / when we ever do remodeling, we will absolutely hire Lavan again!

Lavan Construction was referred to us by a family friend to help us with the design and build of our new home in Los Altos Hills back in 2017 and after interviewing Moein and Fahid (the owners) and five other contractors we instantly made a connection with Lavan team, and I'm here a year after the project's completion back in February of 2019 to share our experience with their potential future clients. Look no further; they are knowledgeable, honest, reasonable, and, most importantly, organized. Our agreement was eight months for the design, and permitting witch took about a year since it was strictly on Los Altos Hills authorities and not under Lavan's control; on the other hand, our construction took eleven months, and that's a month earlier than what was promised to us. Thank you, Lavan Team, for really coming through for us and making this dream home a reality, and most of all, thanks for being true to your words from the beginning.

I reached out to Lavan Construction and shortly after met with one of the owners Moein! He was very thorough and transparent and after 2 weeks, we met Fahid and we decided to move ahead with Lavan Construction! Our project took 5.5 months and they finished before the promise date witch now days it s unheard of!!! We are so happy we choose them and appreciate all the care and extra attention they put into our project! They treat you as a family member and they treat your house as their own!!! We will not hesitate to hire them again and we highly recommend working with this hard working family!

We completed a major remodel of our house last year. We added a new full suite bedroom/bathroom, we completely  remodeled our existing bathrooms, kitchen and family room.We moved  walls, plumbing and replaced  flooring.  From the time they started until they finished it was 3 months. This went smoothly and was as expected per contract and some delays if any was due to county inspection. Lavan construction was not the lowest bidder, but they were detailed and patient. This clearly gave us the best impression that they understood the job and how to get it done. They subcontracted most of the work to a variety of skilled workers (carpenters, drywall, electricians, HVAC, plumbers, etc). Everyone that came to our house to work was professional, proficient and worked quietly. Fahid is very patient and extremely professional. He works great at the ground level. Any ideas/changes we came up with, Fahid evaluated patiently and would candidly tell us if it was implementable or needed tweaks. We had to delay our project for a bit due to a medical situation, Fahid and Moein understood the situation and accommodated our requests without any issues. They made our dream house a reality.   As in any large project, there were things that had to be corrected and I will say Lavan Construction never debated or dragged its feet on any of them. We are very pleased with the results of our remodel and would not hesitate to hire them again.

When it comes to any project related to oneâ s primary residence, while it is an important factor, cost cannot be the only variable one uses to select vendors. One also needs to factor in the relationship(s) into which he/she is entering and how those relationships are going to play out during the construction process. Arguably the most important one of these variables that helps to create a positive relationship â as in any relationship in life â is communication. With Lavan, we absolutely made the right decision. Their communication was candid and valuable, based on their knowledge and experience in not only construction, but interacting with the City, vendors, and other trade-partners involved in the project. Their many outstanding suggestions, bringing to our attention things we may not have considered on our own, allowed us to navigate potential pitfalls that could have impacted schedule and/or budget. They took our existing plan(s), provided constructive, nuanced opinion based on their years of experience and helped us to make the best, most informed decisions. Beyond that, their workmanship is solid. They are committed to ensuring the final product aligns with your vision(s). They genuinely care about the quality of the product they install and the subcontractors they choose to perform the actual installation, treating your home as their own.
