How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because Since I was 17 I saw my dad’s jobs and how happy his customer’s are. I knew that this is what I want to do. I met a lot of families along the way and each family is unique and special and so is their style. My job is to transform your house into your dream house and work with you hand in hand to choose your designs, colors, and materials to get the best results. I invite you to contact us and schedule a free consultation with me..

We started in this industry in 2008.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

Review by in Fremont, CA
Excellent craftsmanship, value and expertise. We couldn t be more pleased with our overall remodel of our 1950s home. It s stunningly beautiful. From roof to floors, gorgeous modern open kitchen and bath, beautiful flooring, crown modeling, recessed lighting throughout, lovely outside with new stucco. Yani did a fabulous job picking colors, tiles and floors. He was in constant communication with us during this major project. We were very pleased with his professionalism, ideas and ways to stay in budget and save us money too.

Review by in Dublin, CA
We hired Shefer Builder to remodel our recently purchased condo. The project consisted of installing recessed lights, remodeling a bathroom and building a new closet. I am very pleased with the effort they (primarily their office manager, Natali) put in to make sure that all the necessary documents were in place so that the project could be approved by our HOA. I spoke to 7 contractors trying to get proposals and the documents required by the HOA. Three contractors backed out before giving me a proposal, one had messed up documents, one kept trying to upsell me, one seemed very inexperienced, and one provided a bid that seemed like a lowball bid. Shefer was professional in the bid process and the project was completed at the cost that I expected. I was impressed that for each facet of the project, i.e., electrical, tile, plumbing, painting, carpentry, a specialized crew was working on that facet. The quality of the work was excellent and Yani kept on top of the project to make sure that everything was done correctly. I appreciate that working in a condo and around HOA requirements is not easy. Shefer did a great job in completing the project with essentially no complaints from the neighbors or the HOA. Iâ m very happy with the experience of working with Shefer Builders.

Review by in Dublin, CA
I m so happy I chose Shefer Builder, Inc. We first remodeled my Master Bath and once I saw quality of work and experienced working with the Owner I knew I found My Contractor! He believes in providing quality products, which was very important to me. He only works with top-notch people who provide beautiful results, such as my custom vanity, shower slab and sink with specialty edging, exacting shower tile and floor installation, frameless glass shower with custom extra-large mirror and extra work on my currently textured walls and turned them into lovely and smooth painted walls. We then moved on to the rest of the house. This included recessed lights and high quality flooring throughout, custom hall linen closet, custom china cabinet, a new sub-panel and foundation work. In addition, a complete new kitchen with custom cabinetry, new counter and backsplash. Also new custom fireplace with custom built-ins on either side. All this work was done beautifully with wonderful workmanship and his workers were very pleasant and accommodating. The owner is very involved in his jobs and he has a personal touch when it comes to working with his clients. Once you meet him you instantly know you can trust him. You know he has integrity, he s honest and truly cares about you and your project. He aims to please and goes WELL Above and Beyond for his clients. Liz, Dublin, CA

Yani was excellent at getting back to me when I had a question or concern. He was always encouraging and had a can do attitude.

Review by in Campbell, CA
I planned to work with a different contractor for our bathroom remodel, but I didn't like how he and I were communicating. So I called Shefer Builder and am very glad I did! Yani's people skills and "can-do" attitude were encouraging. Every time I had a question or concern, Yani quickly responded. The workers in our home were polite and hard-working, and the job was completed in record time -- three weeks, including permits. The bathroom is beautiful, and my husband and I are thrilled.

Review by in Livermore, CA
I decided to hire Shefer Builder on a friend's recommendation. Yaniv listened to our needs, responded promptly to our inquiries, and was very open to speaking his mind about our design ideas. Cost estimates were also reasonable. Once we had a contract and favorable date to start the work Yaniv helped me resolve the problems that arose along the way. The whole crew was friendly, trustworthy, very thorough and competent. My kitchen remodeling work was started and accomplished on schedule, within budgets and in a high-quality manner. Thanks a lot, guys!!

My wife and I chose Shefer Builder Inc. not just for the good reviews but for the personal and professional touch that it is owner Yaniv Shefer gave to our bathroom remodel. Shefer Builder has a great team of workers too. They were on time each day, courteous, answered any questions that i had, and cleaned up at the end of each day. Yaniv wants to please his clients in every aspect of the job. He was willing to work within our limited budget and that was very important to us. I will certainly use Shefer Builder Inc. for future jobs.
Response by Shefer Builder, Inc: Good Afternoon Scot. Thank you so much for your kind works and trusting Shefer Builder to be your go to contractor. We are very happy to be able to assist you with your project and give your bathroom a new contemporary look. Looking forward to working with you in the future again. Kind Regards Ana

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.
