    We used Preferred to remodel 2 bathrooms and for extensive interior and exterior painting. We are extremely pleased with the work quality and their professionalism. The project managers- Itay and Michelle always kept us up to date and the work was completed on time and within budget. We have already recommended Preferred to others.

    Working with Preferred Home Builders was a great decision and experience. We have been thinking about remodeling our kitchen for a few years now but have been hesitant as we wanted to save and do it exactly how we wanted instead of doing it with a different contractor at a lower price. We reached out to Preferred about 3 years ago, but we were not ready and did not feel comfortable spending yet. 3 years later we met with Tamir again and he came up with an even better vision for our kitchen. Tamir and Alex (our coordinator) were dedicated to our project. Throughout the entire process Tamir and Alex made it clear that their goal was for us to be happy not only with the final product, but with the process itself. Waiting a few years for this project made it that much better and we couldn’t be happier.

    This review is long overdue, we remodeled our kitchen and I can not express how happy we are with our decision to go with Preferred. Although Preferred was more expensive than the other bids we received, we realized that the price was worth the smooth and stress free process. I have heard so many stories of bad contractors and poor craftsmanship and we were not willing to go through a difficult time. The entire time we felt taken care of by Tamir and Alex. Tamir is the one who designed our kitchen and sat with us for many hours on every little detail. Alex was our project coordinator who worked directly with us and Tamir from start to finish. The crew was always on time, considerate, and clean which we really appreciated. Thank you Preferred for allowing us to enjoy our kitchen without any bumps along the way.

    We were looking for a reliable contractor and found Preferred Home Builders (with a 5 star rating) on Angie's List. Our intent was to replace our current gas fireplace with a modern unit and increase the overall size of the fireplace structure to accommodate a new 75" flat screen TV. Additionally, we wanted to polish/seal our concrete floors and kitchen counter tops and to replace a rusted out upstairs patio railing. We met with one of their contractors, who remained with us for the remainder of the project. Needless to say, Itay personified his Company's 5 star reputation by delivering outstanding service and a fantastic finished product. He was with us during every step of the process and assisted us during both tile and fireplace selection, which we did on the same day.He even took us out to lunch that day, which we greatly enjoyed. We were particularly impressed with his approach to the project and his/their efforts to reduce our personal inconvenience during construction. As many know, living with a home remodel (of any type) can be a nightmare. In this case, we highly recommend Preferred Home Builders and in particular Itay and Alexandria for a job well done!

    Preferred Home Builders have been fantastic to work with! The entire crew has been very professional, prompt and are great communicators.  Superb service, price and quality. Our home is in Simi Valley and we are 3 weeks into our remodel.Itay is managing our remodel of both bathrooms and kitchen and we are so pleased with his level of professionalism and knowledge.  He's an honest and sincere individual who helps us feel comfortable and well-informed throughout the process so we don't have to worry about anything.Michelle is coordinating our job and has been outstanding in relaying updates and schedules.  We always know what the next steps are and when they are coming up and who is arriving for work that day.Luis, the foreman, and the others on his crew (Luis and Marvin) have been highly-efficient, through, professional and great to work with.  They prepared the areas to protect the floors and contain the demo debris and leave each evening with the house in a surprisingly clean state.We are EXTREMELY pleased with every aspect of this company's performance so far and highly recommend them for future projects.

    We used Preferred Home Builders and Eran to do some renovation on our home. Their work was fantastic, and we felt comfortable working with them throughout the monthlong renovation. The team was quick to correct anything we were unhappy with. We stayed in close contact and checked in with them every day. They completely understood what we were going for with the house, and they were great in helping guide us through the process.

    I am a real estate and architectural photographer and have created photos, videos and 3D tours for hundreds of homes, especially in the Calabasas area. I recently photographed an astounding renovation by this company. It's in a very "1980s" neighborhood but when you step inside this home you're in 2019 or perhaps later. The finishes are all quality and the design work is an amazing upgrade for this residence. If you intend to remodel, you owe it to yourself to talk to this team.

    We just completed a kitchen with Tom and his crew and we can’t express how thrilled we are with the results. Our main goal was to find a reasonably priced contractor that made us feel comfortable and could help us with our vision. We had a closed off floor plan really wanted our kitchen to open up to the living room. That being said, Tom came in and presented 3 different ideas and 3-D designs that we could go with. After 3 meetings we felt the most comfortable with Tom and his company and decided to go with one of his designs. We could not be happier with our decision and the outcome of our kitchen. Once we save up we will definitely hire Preferred again to finish the rest of the house.

    I just moved into a new home that needed to be updated. I was recommended by a friend of mine who is at the final stages of her kitchen remodel to give Tamir a call. After seeing her project and doing some research I gave Preferred a call and scheduled my free estimate. Tamir came out and started to measure and design my master bathroom. After a few meetings I decided to hire Preferred and am looking forward to tackle different areas of the house over time!

    I recently used Preferred Home Builders to renovate my small house, and was extremely pleased with their work. I’m not sure how their prices compare to others’, but they were open about costs and warned me to expect costs associated with change orders. I interviewed other general contractors, but found only PHB both professional and personable. They were amenable to my getting other quotes for aspects of the work: I had my own workers for the shower door and painting, but otherwise used all the Preferred crews. The kitchen and bathroom needed to be completely re-worked, and Ran helped me design spaces that work beautifully and are very attractive. I had an idea of what I wanted, but he added the practical to it, and informed me of the requisites. He also planned the space on the computer (several renditions), so I could see it in 3D. He managed to keep the spaces true enough to their 1923 roots, while making them work for 21st century needs: For instance, he suggested enclosing the light and exhaust fan in the existing space above my old Wedgwood stove, so that it is unobtrusive, and the stove seems to stand on its own in its original niche. He knew I loved that setting, had obviously been thinking about it on his own, and had come up with this very practical and responsive idea. The bathroom is a tiny space, and was very eccentrically laid out by the previous owner. The new layout makes use of what little space there is efficiently, and the end result is lovely. I discovered that the wiring and plumbing needed to be completely re-done; the wiring was original to the house, and I was not comfortable with it. My only dismay with Preferred is that they did the rewiring, but did not include the re-plastering of the holes they had made, since they were not doing the painting. I am told by others that this is normal, since they were not doing the painting, but I continue to think it should have been part of the re-wiring. However, they were upfront about it, so I really can’t complain. The plumbing in the bathroom literally crumbled when it was touched, so I redid the whole house. Preferred not only handled the permits, as they did for all the construction, but kept on top of the city, so that they would do the inspection sooner than they had planned. Edoe is the project manager, and manages to put together the pieces so that they fall into place one by one, an admirable ability for an exacting task. Except for city inspections, which occasionally held things up, there was very little waiting around for the next phase of the work to get going. And the various crews were pleasant, respectful, and cleaned up after themselves. The house has many quirks, such as un-plumb walls, and Preferred made accommodations for them so that they are not noticeably askew. When I had concerns about any detail, Ran and Edoe saw that it was corrected; they wanted me to be satisfied with the results, and I am (as you might be able to tell). Recently, one of my circuit breakers tripped, and I could not get the new breaker box open. I don’t yet have my own electrician, so I called Preferred and Edoe took the time to call the electrician who had installed it, call me back, and walk me through the safety mechanism, so that I could re-engage the circuit. I didn’t feel any hesitation or reluctance from Edoe, just a quick response to the dilemma. That’s service with a genuine smile! I will use them again if I do any other work, and highly recommend them.

    Hands down, this is the builder you want to hire. Ran (Ron) is absolutely amazing. If you've been watching the home remodeling shows like we were, and were wondering how you were going to find a designer, builder, contractor, and someone with a vision and a crew to turn that vision into reality, just like on those cool shows where they build cool houses, don't look further, call and schedule an appointment. You won't find a more honest group of professionals to work with. My wife and I are SUPER impressed and blessed to have found them. - From Sylmar, CA

    I hired Preferred Home Builders after receiving multiple bids for different companies. Preferred was one of the higher bids, however I feel that it was worth the money! My project manager was professional, caring, and responsive. The process was very simple we had 2 long meetings where I sat with Tom, the owner of the company. He explained the entire process thoroughly and created a 3-D before and after design of my home. I was able to see what the final product would be before we even started. After the 2 meetings we set a start date and end date which was spot on. Overall I had a great experience and I was very pleased with their craftsmanship, professionalism, and dedication.

    I hired the preferred home builders, in North-ridge, a few months ago to replace windows and doors of my house. They did a wonderful job and start working right after the three days we approached them. They bid us a little high cost but their marvels work worth every penny we spent on the remodeling of our house. Their high-end job quality, punctual staff, great communication skills, and creative design & solutions make them courteous to our neighbors.They were popular in our neighborhood for their great customer services and they had proved it at each step of the project. We had a great experience with the preferred home builder that was better than all expectations. They had done a clean and organized job and everything turns out beautiful. We dealt with an amazing crew that is very efficient and attentive to our needs.We are thrilled about our home and their fantastic job is highly appreciable. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family. The whole staff showed a high-level of respect and responsiveness to their work and taken my home as their own and the results are just awesome. The project was finished on time and kept clean. I will surely contact them for my future projects. That was an awesome job done. Thanks a lot guys.

    I recently moved into a house where everything needed to be remodeled!! We started off by having my bathroom demolished and then remodeled. The lay out of the bathroom was uncomfortable and inconvenient. Tom the owner of the company came to look at the bathroom and took measurements. That same day he designed a 3-D before and after of what my bathroom would look like. The process was amazing and very quick. Tom also helped me choose from tiles and caeser stone when I was unsure which would look best. In the end I am very happy I listened to him because everything looks great together. The bathroom was demolished and re built in less than 3 weeks!! They worked Monday through Saturday from 8-5. Every day and the office checked up on the project and called to make sure everything was going smoothly. I was never confused or unaware at any point of the project. I don’t have any complaints it was a 10/10. I’m excited to continue to work with Preferred Home Builders as we remodel and update the rest of the house. I posted some before and after pictures and I’m sure you all will agree that it is an unbelievable transformation. I recommend Preferred Home Builders to anyone who is looking to remodel any kind of job whether it is big or small I guarantee they will make it as pleasant, professional, and smooth as possible!!!

Not only was the project well-organized (thanks to Hadas), the workmanship was great as well. Whenever there was an issue (all were minor), Tom and Hadas took care of them quickly. I would definitely recommend them to friends and relatives.

    I have experience with contractors who just hire their buddies or family—things get done, but not in a professional manner.BUT IT’S ALL GOOD HERE—finally, there’s a company that feels like they are here for me.What’s great is that there is a project manager. Think of him as the anchor to all the “fun,” which way too many other contracting teams do lack. Honestly, the last team I had over had workers where everybody thought they were the boss. It ended badly, and well…good thing Preferred Home Builders were so efficient, effective, and just plain useful 

    I personally had a great experience with Preferred Home Builders. I bought a house out in the area but wanted to change a few things in the kitchen. They came over gave a free consultation and even helped me pick out new countertops and cabinets. When the crew arrived to install everything they were very friendly. The work was done very quickly. I can't say enough good things about PHB. The work was done well and the price was right. I definitely recommend them.

Construction and home improvement is definitely not my thing, but the team at Preferred made all that easy as I was able to sit back and simply let them do the planning and the work.The consultation went very smoothly and I was really impressed how efficient they were with their suggestions and planning. They were more interested in cost effective solutions for me instead of simply trying to make a quick buck! In these difficult economic times, saving money always helps.Will definitely recommend do my friends and family and will call on Preferred again!

    Working with contractors can be a hassle. You never know who they're bringing into your home not to mention what sort of quality you're going to get. When I decided to do a remodel of kitchen to bring it up to date I frankly waited a while because I just didn't want to deal with the hassle. A friend of mine who also had some work done recommended Preferred Home Builders and frankly their work was spot on so they deserve five stars for removing the contractor hassle from my life. It's been about three months since I had the work done and my kitchen looks great and the price was right.
