FAQ

What types of remodeling do you offer?

At A-List Builders, we are equipped to take on any size project. From indoor bathrooms and kitchens to outdoor decks and hardscaping, some of our most popular remodel options include:

When is the best time to remodel?

Most interior home remodeling can be done any time of year, as it is not affected by weather. If your concern is the exterior of your home, here are some things to consider:

  • Footing, foundation, concrete, and masonry work must be completed when there is no rain and the soil is dry. Once these are complete, framing can continue regardless of weather.
  • Roofing should be considered when rain is scarce, but once weatherproofing has been done, interior work in these areas can continue without concern for the forecast.
  • Kitchen remodels can also cause upheaval in your life. To avoid having to order takeout every day, many homeowners choose to make kitchen changes during more temperate months, allowing them to cook on an outdoor grill.

What style homes do you/have you worked with?

A-List Builders is well versed in a number of modern and historical styles. Our focus is on ensuring that the design and beauty of your home meet your expectations. Some styles with which we are experienced include:

  • Craftsman
  • Country
  • Contemporary
  • European
  • Farmhouse
  • Cottage
  • Mediterranean
  • Mid-Century Modern
  • Modern
  • Ranch
  • Spanish
  • Traditional<

How long will a remodel take?

The length of each renovation depends on the size of the project, the scope of work, and the materials used. When you work with us, we provide you with a clear timeline of our plans and keep you updated on any setbacks or successes that change the project timeline.

Will I still have running water and power during a remodel?

Most of the time, water and gas need to be shut off during the demolition phases, as well as reconnection phases of the project. Some shutdowns only last a few minutes, while others last a few hours. You will know of any shut-offs well in advance, so you can plan your life accordingly.

Who cleans up after the work is done?

Throughout your project, there will be times when your home is messier than you would like. We do our best to clean up after ourselves every day, but dirt and dust are the worst during demolition phases. Sanding and drywall insulation also create a lot of fine dust, but we do our best to seal off the rest of your house to avoid spreading it.

At the very end of your project, our team will conduct a full cleanse to leave your home sparkling!

Can you use my blueprints?

At A-List Builders, we’re happy to begin work at any phase of a project. Many clients come to us with plans that are already complete and approved by Building and Safety.

Can you help with the design phase of the project?

If you’re struggling with various concepts of your remodel, or you have incomplete plans, we can help!

What if I want to make changes during the remodel?

While we encourage minimal changes once your project is underway — as many changes cause delays and raise costs — we will do everything in our power to ensure you’re happy with the work we’re doing.

Do I need any permits or insurance?

Most projects do need city permits. Since our company is fully licensed, bonded, and insured we will take care of the entire process, so you can enjoy peace of mind throughout your project.

What type of specialists do you have in-house? Architects? Interior designers?

A-List Builders employs interior designers, architects, and various contractors in-house to ensure you have access to the experienced personnel you need at any phase of your project. We’ll introduce you to every team member involved in the work — many of whom you’ll see on a daily basis until your project is complete.

Here is what a few of them say.

  • Kobi R.

    It’s been years since I’ve done any work to my home so I was nervous about the whole project. Thankfully, I found a company that not only provided me with a patient ( I am very particular) and punctual contractor, Rani, but the job came out better than I expected. After doing such an amazing job on the kitchen, I expressed to Rani that I would like to do some more work with him but money, unfortunately, doesn’t grow on trees. Fortunately, Rani found an affordable way for me to redo all the bathrooms and flooring throughout the house.

  • Beverly S.

    Our initial meeting with Rani was excellent due to him giving us information and ideas we hadn’t thought of. He returned a week later with a presentation for our kitchen. Again, we were surprised at his additional ideals and his presentation. We had previously had two of the big-box stores come out so we had an idea of cost. Rani was more reasonable and offered us better and more creative ideas. Our kitchen is completed and we feel we qualify for Better Homes & Gardens. We would recommend our experience and job to everyone.

  • Warren M.

    After about a year and a half after we remodeled our bathroom, we had some minor electrical issues and reached out to A-List Builders. Ben followed up consistently and in a timely manner until my needed repair work was done.

  • Debbie W.

    Everyone was professional, nice and knowledgeable. I am so happy with their work and I will be using them again for my next project. In addition, I will be referring them (which I don't do unless I completely trust a job well done) to my family and friends. Thank you, again, for such a positive experience.

  • Deborah B.

    I hired A-List for a large restoration project. The project involved wall replacement with framing & drywall, stucco, exterior & interior painting, foundation reinforcement, a new exterior gate, fence repair, brick & tile walkways. Ben was the only contractor I interviewed who recommended that an engineer inspect the foundation as part of the evaluation process. Megan cheerfully worked through the process with my insurance company. All of the on-site workers were a pleasure to work with. They arrived early, were professional, & kept the work-site clean & organized...even the city inspector commented positively about A-List's knowledge & organization. A-List Builders did a great job & their follow-up was excellent.

  • Lou D.

    Like so many people in LA we bought a fixer upper. Over the last 5 years we have searched intently for a contractor we could trust. Never has a contractor come on our property that affected us the way Ben and Megan from A-List Builders have. They immediately understood our needs and made brilliant suggestions. They answered every question, every call, and it was such a difference dealing with them than any company we've ever hired before. They did not waste a minute of our time, nor did they try to get us to do more than we wanted. Their pricing is more than fair. They are so good at what they do and completely trustworthy and make hard things much easier. There actually IS a really good General Contractor out there and a company that does all that it promises and more.

    I used A-List Builders for my Bathroom Remodel and my bathroom is more beautiful now than I could have ever imagined...I met with Ben who gave me a free estimate for the job and knew right away that A-List Builders was the company I was going to use for the job. Their estimate was fair, and their communication throughout the entire process was fantastic. I always knew there was going to be someone else on the other line if I needed to get a hold of them for any reason. Their workers were true pros that did an immaculate job, excellent craftmanship and very good at keeping the renovation area very clean. I absolutely love my new bathroom and have already recommended them to two of my friends. Truly a great experience!
