In 2004/2005 Metcalf Construction performed a major remodel/addition to our home. Joe and his crew did an outstanding, high quality job. This was our first remodel, and we weren't sure what to expect. Metcalf always kept us apprised of the construction schedule and 'held our hand' during the entire process. Joe's expertise helped us avoid making poor choices (i.e. light floors vs. four kids and pets). From reviewing the architectural drawings, to helping us decide on our materials, we put our trust in Metcalf and the many craftsmen who worked on our home.
We lived in our home during the construction and our comfort and safety were always considered a priority. Our questions were answered quickly and issues were resolved in a timely manner. Metcalf was also very prompt following up with any concerns, even after the construction had been completed.
Thanks to Joe and all of his staff, we have turned our house into the home we always envisioned!

Metcalf construction did two remodels for us on our home in Alamo, CA. The first was 1000 sq ft. and included expansion and addition of rooms on the second story and expansion of the great room and dinning room on the main floor. The second was a complete remodel of the kitchen. We were highly satisfied with the work and the relationship with Joe and Lori Metcalf. We would use them again in a heartbeat had we not moved out of the state. We also recommended them to several friends who were equally satisfied with the quality of work and professionalism.

To Whom It May Concern:
Some seven years ago, my wife and I had a burning desire to design and• build a new house, taking into account our life style and our space needs. We found a beautiful lot in Walnut Creek with a creek and many oak trees over 200 years old. On a house tour of a well known person's home, we saw some fine work and great ideas. We spoke to that architect and were very impressed. We asked him to put our ideas and needs into a house plan and recommend the best general contractors in the area, in his opinion. We interviewed many, and through process of elimination, chose Joe Metcalf to build our home. To this day, we could not have been more pleased with that choice.
Or house was to be unusual, spacious, but without a lot of bedrooms, because our children are all grown and out of our home. We wanted a large room for my wife to sew, a nice study, a large master bedroom, and an open arid spacious kitchen and family room, while still having room when family and friends stayed with us. There are unusual angles to the rooms, presenting interesting challenges to ceilings and the roof, Joe and his accommodating staff often were asked to come up with creative solutions to unique problems, and they never let us down... He dealt with all the permits and lien releases in a timely fashion, hired creative subs who were willing to give it that something extra, and finished the project on time. He addressed every situation as it came up and didn't put off difficult decisions.
Joe not only built us a beautiful, quality home, but continues to stay in touch, showing our home to some of his prospective clients. As little things have come up concerning the house, over the last few years, we have continued to as him for suggestions. He and his wife (and office manager), Lori, have been wonderful people to work with, and we would not hesitate to recommend them as a general contractor... Wonderful attention is paid to detail and follow through is always complete. Please feel free to call us if you need more information.

I want to let you know how thrilled we are with the work you and your men did in remodeling our home.
We wanted a remodel that was quite a major undertaking. You delivered exactly what we asked for. And, what really impressed me is that you accepted my suggestions thoughts and concerns and work them into the final design. Additionally, we could not ask for a better construction team to work with. You stayed in touch with us and with your crew to ensure everything was done to our satisfaction. You were on site every day your staff were on site (such quality control is evident in the finished product) I could tell that your men took much pride in their work. They were so polite and always cleaned up the site after the day was done.
Finally, I must not let this letter close without telling you how much I value your integrity. You told me what to expect and you follow through with what you told me. You were on time and within budget. When I wanted some additional work done, you were fair and provided reasonable prices in each instance. If I saw something that needed to be looked at, you investigated it and fixed it without question.

I hope this letter finds you and your staff well. Both Jane and I wanted to follow up with you now that our project is complete to express our thanks to you and your team for an outstanding job.
We are extremely pleased with the work that was done and found working with you to be a very positive experience. It really helped to be able to draw on your expertise as we moved through the various phases of our plans and consider things in a new fight. For example we are grateful that we took your advice on the kitchen- it is now so much more roomy and light!
Your staff were truly professional and courteous and we would appreciate it if you could extend our thanks to them as well. Stan was an excellent ambassador for your company and was always accommodating to our needs as we progressed through the project. Greg was even courteous enough to endure a cup of English tea, come to think of it so was Stan! Carlos was always polite and industrious, even when up to his ears in mud. We will certainly remember them all from the summer of 2004.
Please also let your subs know that they did a great job for us. In particular I am sure Frank will be happy to hear that his lighting is just great and we felt very lucky to have him working on our home.
Anyhow, we are all very pleased with the results and thankful we were able to work with such a professional team as yours. If you are ever in need of references please feel free to use our names.
With best regards,
Andrew and Jane - Danville Residence
I would like to thank Joe and all the sub-contractors used by Metcalf construction for a job well done. Not only was the price quoted adhered to but the project was completed ahead of schedule. The work was true craftsmanship and everyone a pleasure to deal with. We really appreciated the way Joe and crew worked with us to be certain that no detail was overlooked.
Thanks again for all the hard work on our project,

What impressed us most about J. Metcalf Construction, Inc. was the professional presentation and bid we received. During the construction process Joe and his crew always delivered on their commitments and stayed within schedule, and most important to us – they kept us well informed throughout. We would recommend Joe and his team to anyone.

We needed a large company that could handle the size of our project and still wanted the hands on control of the Owners involvement. Overall, J. Metcalf delivered superior construction quality.The experience was great and I would highly recommend Metcalf to any friend or client. They built an amazing addition to our home.
