“Greg Hendsch redid our kitchen and we couldn’t be happier. Greg and his crew did a fantastic job. We got great results on time and on budget. In addition to redoing all the walls, cabinets, plumbing, electrical, and flooring, he successfully knocked out some closets, moved a few doorways and reconfigured our space to be much more useful and open. He gave great advice about what was worth doing, what wasn’t and how to get the best value out of our money. I expected months without a kitchen but Greg was in and out within 6 weeks.  And he did it all without messing up the rest of the house. The team was very conscientious about keeping the construction as neat and contained as possible. My only regret is that I didn’t call Greg sooner. I love my new kitchen!”     –Linda, Detroit Ave. Oakland

“We just had a bathroom remodeled by Greg Hendsch, and we can’t say enough about how great he is.  The finished room is beautiful and makes excellent use of the space.  He was responsive, communicative, and never left us waiting and wondering.  The work is excellent quality, and he was able to incorporate existing features that we wanted to keep.  A real pleasure to work with!”   –Merry, Oakland

“Going through a major home remodel and living in it is no walk in the park, but having a skilled and sensitive contractor makes the journey far more bearable. Greg Hendsch is just that, and he embraced our extensive remodel with enthusiasm and precision. His experience, positive nature, efficiency in work and in communication, and dedication to your project is what you want to have in an individual who will be spending time in your space everyday for weeks or months. Over the four months of our project there was never a wasted day, there was always time for consults and meetings for clarity and explanations, and a consistent professionalism in being kept up-to-date with costs, permits, inspections as well as the inevitable unexpected occurrences. What evolved was a space even more beautiful than we imagined which continues to perform and “wear well” after five years of constant use.  Greg made it happen, and we feel very fortunate that we not only call him “our contractor” but our friend.” –Terry, Lafayette

“Greg – Thanks very much for the great job you, Alfredo, and many more did on our bathroom and closet remodel. It is beautiful!”   –Therese, San Jose

“Greg Hendsch installed a solar fan in our attic and it seems to be making a significant difference—our house is much cooler late in the day and at night, and our ceilings upstairs are much, much less hot to the touch than they were. Greg was great—good advice, good price, and we couldn’t even tell he’d been here when he was done.”

“I’d be happy to give Greg a referral.  He worked on an earthquake retrofit of our 1970s addition and did a great job!”

Restored exterior

“I did my first project with Greg in 2003.   My husband and I had bought a 3 bedroom craftsman which came with $40,000 worth of foundation damage.  Greg and his team lifted the entire building 14 feet off the ground and built a second story beneath the original building.  Greg completed the project on time and within budget.  I am a real estate developer, and since that project, I have preferred to work with Greg whenever possible.  I simply trust his good judgment, intelligence and sense of fairness.  During our last project together, we had to earthquake retrofit a 14 unit apartment building – filled with existing tenants – and construct 5 live/work lofts on the ground floor. With every difficult and seemingly impossible decision I had to make, Greg carefully laid out all my options and explained to me the costs and benefits associated with each option.  I felt comfortable knowing I was making informed and therefore, wise decisions.  Greg is a good man and a great contractor.”   –Amy, Oakland

“Greg, thank you for all of your help. We were very impressed by Alfredo and his mastery of his work. Nothing seemed to stop him!”   –Gene, Oakland

We are thrilled with our kitchen/bath remodel by Hendsch Construction.  They have given our 1925 home new life.  The disruption of a remodel was softened by Greg’s friendly, hard working, quality crew.  They became part of our family.  An earmark of Greg’s work is high quality supervision. No time was wasted and cleanup was built in. He’s easy to work with, has a great eye for design, and is a creative problem solver. He’s well acquainted with the Oakland zoning department,familiar with changing building codes and he simply does beautiful work. We’re about to embark on Phase Two of our remodel and wouldn’t think of using any other contractor. –Carolyn and Dave, Rockridge
