Paragon Builders were honest, reasonably priced, respectful and always responsive. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a licensed contractor.

Review by in Los Angeles, CA
We rate Paragon Builders 11 on a scale of 10! Last year they added a bathroom to our home in west L.A. The proposal was reasonable and fair, and the workmanship was first-rate in every category. Adding an entire room to the back of our house entailed every aspect of building and they completed it beautifully, skipping no corners. Guy Liba and partner, Haim Gavrieli, were on the job daily, kept us informed of progress, stayed on budget and finished on time. We have an older home and they were also able to help us in other areas that needed work. My husband and I trust them completely and were thrilled to ask them back this year to remodel our kitchen. That remodel is going on now, and we're equally happy with it. Guy has been able to provide money-saving resources for tile, appliances, etc. This company is the best! We recommend them to everyone!!

Review by in Long Beach, CA
This is not a recommendation but merely a heads-up regarding our experience with Paragon Builders and its owner. It was a really, really bad fit. I do not think most people would believe the problems we had with Paragon, given the glowing recommendations on this and other sites. But what I would like to do is address anyone reading this and contemplating hiring Paragon: I have gone through a child-birth that was more pleasant than what my husband and I went through with this company. Seriously. Here is a tiny, tiny, TINY list of examples: After questioning an item that was expressly provided for in our contract, Paragons owner hit us with, "I do not care what is in the contract" So be careful what you sign, or do not because evidently, it does not matter; Workers and reps of Paragon often showed up with no advanced warning, no heads-up, phone call, nothing. By the same token, workers who were scheduled to appear often did not. When things go wrong (which is to be expected), you should be prepared to take the blame for everything. Even things with which you are not involved will somehow be your fault. One small example: Sliding kitchen shelves that the owner indicated were standard and were written into the contract were not installed, and that was somehow our fault. If you have dogs, be prepared to double-triple-and quadruple-lock your gates because Paragon will forget that you have dogs and leave gates wide open; At your first meeting, Paragon will assure you that you are its only and most important client, that it works on only one job at a time and that YOU will be the single focus of Paragons energy. Um...no. The kitchen contract was signed 1/18/2018, approximate completion date (per the contract) was March 9, 2018, the workers left MID-MAY. The bathroom shower door was finally installed today, it is a good thing we were home to let the workers in or we would have had to wait another 2-3-4 weeks to get that done. The men working on the guest bath (a tiny, tiny room) arrived between 9:00-9:30 a.m., took an hour for lunch and left at 3:00. That is a 5-hour work day. We will just leave that here. So a rough estimate of a 2+ room job: 7 months. Be prepared. On a positive note, the owner was fairly easy to get ahold of. The questions/issues we had that we felt were important enough to text about were dealt with relatively expeditiously. (i.e., the worker who installed a new washer and dryer forgot to turn the water on to the washer. Both appliances are the size of Buicks, thus too large for us to move, and we figured the washer was a lemon. After a lot of hullabaloos, phone calls to the seller, etc., we called Paragon as a last resort, got a "Oh, yeah, maybe the waters not on" and, after a couple of days, our new washer finally worked. We still can not figure that one out.) There is not room to go into all that went wrong, and we absolutely WILL take the blame for being newbies at this whole remodel thing. Paragon is likely more appropriate for the seasoned customer than inexperienced ones like us. UPDATE: Just learned that Paragon installed our oven incorrectly. The door kept falling off and a KitchenAid repairman confirmed that the installation was faulty. Thanks, again, Paragon.
Response by Paragon Builders: Regardless of my disagreement with your review, I am sorry for not meeting your expectations. There are many facets to the remodeling process, some are within the control of the General Contractor and some are not. Unfortunately, change orders and changing your mind during a project cause delays. Lack of schedule payments and bouncing a check on me does not help either. You ordering the wrong color or the wrong size of certain items also causes delays. I was very disappointed by your review. It is misrepresenting, contradicting and hurtful. If everything was as bad as you describe, why did you continue to give me more work? After numerous change orders throughout your kitchen remodel project, initiated by your husband, I passed final inspection for your kitchen remodel on May 9, 2018. During the kitchen remodel your husband insisted Paragon will remodel your bathroom once the kitchen is complete. On June 14, 2018 you signed ANOTHER contract to remodel your bathroom. I made sure all items will be at your home prior to start date. I finished your bathroom in three weeks. I take tremendous pride in the business I built. I am involved with every step of each project and make an effort to be at the job site every day, while keeping in constant communication with my clients. It is my livelihood and the way I provide for my family. For you to quote me saying "I don't care what's in the contract." is a blatant lie. I take my honesty and integrity very seriously and I will not allow you to tarnish my reputation. 95% of my communication and dealing was with your husband who befriended me during this project and kept giving me more work. The little communication I had with you, was via email. You were mostly out of town or in your room with the dogs. We barely interacted. Below is the email exchange regarding the "I don't care..." comment. On April 25, 2018 you sent an email asking for the pullout shelves. This was after you signed the layout and after your cabinets were already installed. After a brief exchange I replied: ?Hi Steve, I will always do my best to accommodate and do what I can to make you happy. I enjoy working with you and it is important to me you are satisfied. Regardless of what was said or approved, I will provide you with the pull out shelves. Please, let me know where you would like the pull out shelves to be installed.? Your pullout shelves were installed the following week with no additional charge. I have documents, texts and emails to back everything I say and do. Unfortunately, this platform does not allows me to write in more detail. I provide the same customer service to anyone I work with. This is the reason I have been in this business for more than 20 years. I also learned, I can not satisfy everyone no matter how much effort I put into a project. I am not perfect but I do strive to exceed expectations. I wish I was able to post pictures of before and after to show how nice your project turned out. I provide warranty and take full responsibility beyond the one year required by law for everything I do. Your kitchen was completed and passed inspection in May 9, 2018. You have been using the oven for almost a year now. I generally install appliances for all of my remodels and do not have problems. We merely took your oven out of the box, plugged it in and attached it to the cabinet. I know your cabinet is leveled and I am not sure what we could have done to install it incorrectly. It is a moot point since I was not called in to address your concern prior to calling the repair man. I have good relations with Pacific Sales and could have taken care of whatever was not working. Please make sure to call me first if anything arises, I will take full responsibility for all my work. Thank you

Project: Install Drywall
Guy remodeled my master bathroom seven years ago. When I had water damage he was the first person I called. He worked all the details with the insurance company and helped me with getting the money to pay for the work. Everything went smooth and quick. Guy was very accommodating and responsive. After all these years, the level of service is just as good on a small project as it was on my Master Bathroom.

Review by in Sherman Oaks, CA
Guy was highly recommended by a friend. I wanted to add space in my home and make my kitchen bigger. Guy made this entire stressful time easy and comfortable. Even when problems rose I knew I was in good hands and that the problems will be solved to my satisfaction. I love my new kitchen and new space I have in my home. I highly recommend Paragon Builders, Guy for any remodeling project. I will definitely call him next year for my deck and patio.

Review by in Northridge, CA
Bottom line, Guy stuck to the original plan of cost and schedule with additional no charge minor adjustments which I requested. The communications with Guy throughout the project was above and beyond anything I experienced. His response to phone calls and messages was prompt and comprehensive. Guy's willingness to go the extra mile was outstanding. The quality of the work was very satisfying. The workers were professional and respected our home. I highly recommend working with Guy, Paragon Builders, it was a pleasure working with him.
Response by Paragon Builders: Thank you very much for your kind review, Jack. It was a pleasure working with you. Your decision on the Brazilian slab really made a difference in your kitchen. Looking forward to working with you on the next project.

Review by in Monrovia, CA
We honestly could not have asked for a better experience with a contractor. The flow in our house was terrible before the renovation and now it feels like a real house. Guy was incredibly kind, approachable, and honest about our ideas -- what would work, what wouldn't, new suggestions, and whether or not something was worth the money. He dealt with the city, all our permitting and inspections. We were barely home during the process, but felt completely comfortable in his hands. He was available any time day or night via text message if I had any concerns. If he had any hesitations about a decision we made, he would always double check with us to make sure we were all in agreement. We completely trusted him! His crew was incredibly clean and did a great job keeping the dust mitigated and cleaned up everyday inside the house for us. When there were issues (as there is on any job, with any contractor), Guy was not defensive. He addressed them immediately and corrected them promptly. He was great with documentation such as our contract, insurance, change orders, etc. We shopped around and his prices were exactly as they should have been. We would highly recommend him and would definitely use him again on any projects in the future.

Review by in Granada Hills, CA
Every single employee who showed up, was here on time, worked hard and was respectful to my home. Job was finished before deadline. Contractor / foreman checked in daily to make sure everything is satisfactory. They gave me great design ideas and I am very satisfied with the end result. I already recommended Paragon Builders to a friend and would highly recommend them to anyone else.

Guy from Paragon Builders was simply outstanding, and I highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a contractor. Guy was professional from the very first day, and had a lot of great ideas for our old kitchen. Unlike other contractors who seemed to sell us unnecessary work, Guy actually helped us keep the project within our budget and get more for our money. He provided a detailed plan and cost prior to starting the work, and was available to answer all questions. His crew was just as professional. They worked efficiently, while keeping the work area clean and safe. They actually completed their work earlier than planned, and the project did not go over estimated cost. We are very happy with our new kitchen and have no doubt that we made the right choice with Paragon Builders. We're planning to remodel our master bathroom next, and will definitely use Paragon Builders for the project.
