This review is long overdue for Moshe and his team. We hired Precise to redo all of our bathrooms (3) which included enlarging the Master Bath for a double sink and add a walk-in closet. Moshe was able to quickly sketch out how he would design and build out our bathroom and closet on the first visit which sold us on him.
During the project there were bumps but the way they handled them is why we would highly recommend them. In the end, they checked all the boxes for a job well done; finished on time, on budget and did a beautiful job.
I found Precise by observing how they treated the building sites of 2 neighborhood remodels and I was pleased they specialized in small bath remodels. The project manager gave me excellent design ideas to work with and his knowledge of improving a small and older bathroom shower reflected his experience. The project manager and foreman know the codes, how to make things fit, etc. so I never felt like what I was selecting, using their guidelines, in terms of materials was not going to work out. The foreman and workers were all conscientious about cleanliness, seemed experienced, respected my property and my needs relating to my dogs. The tile installer is extremely skilled. Deadlines were met, the budget estimates were sound. A very nice bonus is the project liason who is not on site but based in the offices of the company. She keep in regular contact, sent the invoices, let me know what was coming up in terms of invoices and inspections, and generally made me feel confident that the company was paying attention. Overall, communication was very good. I would hire Precise again and will recommend Precise to others.
Removed supporting wall between lichen and family room, complete remodel of kitchen and family room entertainment center, remodeled master bath, split hallway bath into two to create new en-suite, refloored entire house. Dino has good design ideas and work was always done on schedule. Never had problems passing inspections.
We hired Precise Home Builders to remodel our kitchen after interviewing Moshe Shachrur. His passion and commitment to our dream kitchen was the connection. Working from a rough layout, Moshe provided tips and ideas to fill in the missing pieces.
The work crews were timely and conscientious as we occupied the rest of the house. Their attention to detail resulted in a quality and finish that is a rarity today.
The remodeled kitchen is now the centerpiece of our home.
We worked with Dino and team on a master bathroom remodel. It has been 6 months since it was completed and we are very pleased with the end result. Dino put on his consulting hat when we asked for tile recommendations and the team was very responsive to our needs. They were very sensitive to the proposed timelines and completed the job as scheduled. We have many more projects to tackle with our home and we would not hesitate to invite Dino and Precise Home Builders back again.
Due to some water damage, we needed help putting our dining room, kitchen, and powder room back together. This project included putting in hard wood flooring, new custom cabinets, granite counter tops, backsplash tile, molding, dry wall, and paint. Everyone at Precise Homebuilders was a pleasure to work with. They did a beautiful job in a very timely manner. I would absolutely hire them again.
Precise Home Builders was excellent! From design to completion! I will always give them a high recommendation! Moshe and is crew were always professional and respectful! My sincere “Thank You” for a job well done! I love my new home!!
Whole house renovation. New dark oak wide plank flooring entire house. New Viking kitchen. Replaced 2 aging bathrooms installed killer glass shower in one. Stone counter tops throughout. Great backsplash & tile work.
Knowledgeable crew. Precise came up with floor plans & executed with style.
Key to hiring them – they took me to finished jobs in my Silver Lake neighborhood.
My wife and I were in the process of a bathroom and deck remodel for our home. After interviewing 10 contractors for the job, it came down to Ronen of Precise Home Builders and another contractor. I can tell you it was a very hard decision to make. It’s unusual you get one contractor that you like, but we were blessed with two. Ultimately, we ended up going with the other contractor, but it had absolutely nothing to do with Ronen and his team at Precise. Out of all the contractors I contacted, Precise was the quickest to respond with setting up an estimate. After an extensive estimate from Ronen, he gave me a very reasonable quote. During the whole process of looking for a contractor, Ronen was very responsive and patient with all of our questions and needs. I may not have been able to use Precise for this job, but we will contact them in the future if we have any other remodeling needs.
Steve and his team at Precise Home Builders are awesome! My deadline for a complete bathroom demolition was Thanksgiving and Steve finished on time and under budget in less than a month! Steve was with me every step of the way from
design inception to referring all necessary vendors. I’ve had many compliments ! My favorite has been
that my guests feel like they are in a 5 star hotel. You can’t find any better!
I recommend Precise Home Builders. The office staff and site manager Steve were very efficient, timely, and pleasant. I hired them out of the 4-5 we interviewed due to the trust we felt in Steve. The best product by far that we encountered was the installation of the tile. Demolition was fast. Cleanup was impeccable daily. Steve worked well with both the employees and us and quickly adjusted to any changes that were experienced. I would hire Steve and his company again,
I did extensive research trying to select the best contractor for my project and I was delighted I selected Precise Home Builders. Moshe was the contractor that came over and to review the work I wanted done. He was on time, very knowledgable, pleasant to deal with and had great ideas. He listened to what I wanted to do and then came back with detailed plans that incorporated all that I had wanted and made some terrific suggestions for things that I had not even thought about. Based on the floor plans I hired Moshe and Precise Home Builders to do all the work in my condo. I liked that I was assigned a project manager who was always available to speak with and to help guide me through this process.
Once I signed the contract: Moshe (the general contractor), foreman, head electrician, custom cabinet builder, plumber, painter and hardwood floor man came over at the same time so we could go over the work in detail. It was fantastic to have their years of experience to help refine my vision and make sure they each knew what was expected of them.
My project included gutting my kitchen, having custom cabinets built, altering kitchen footprint slightly, pulling back a wall, installing beautiful hardwood floors throughout, installing new baseboards throughout, repairing and painting spiral staircase, painting entire condo which including patching cracks and painting 15 foot ceilings.
Moshe and his crew did a terrific job. They were all professional and took great pride in their work. Having never done any remodeling work before, there were many things that I didn’t think about or have an understanding as to what needed to be done. For example his electrician suggested putting the light switch onto a different wall which made total sense to me once he pointed out the benefits of moving the switch. The suggestion was well thought out and I am so glad the electrical switches were moved because they are now in a more practical location. The man who installed my hardwood floors is a master craftsperson. He too helped me with deciding which direction the floors should be installed. Once he pointed out the pros and cons of each direction, I couldn’t be more delighted as to how they look. They are perfection!
Precise Home Builders finished the project earlier than expected which made me so happy! We had agreed to a budget and they did not go over budget.
There were just a few things that needed adjustment and they were addressed immediately!
I know I was a challenging customer, I was so scared because this remodel was a huge financial commitment. The reality is selecting Precise Home Builders was the smartest thing I have done in years. They were helpful, professional, did a great job and finished earlier than expected. I would indeed hire them again for any work I needed done. I love my new home! It makes me so happy to cook in my new kitchen and to have friends over to show off my beautiful home.
Next on the agenda will be my bathrooms. Can’t wait to see what design they come up with for those projects.
This company delivered absolutely the most gorgeous kitchen to me – very cooperative professionals, easy to work with project manager, who really cares that you get highest quality work. Expert craftsmen only. This is top of the line kitchen design for a reasonable price. They do not skimp on material quality either.
Moshe spent unlimited time with us. From start to finish he was perfect. He was honest, fair, had amazing communication – and handled a very difficult job taking two support walls out of a three story 100 year old house.
We used Precise Home Builders to remodel our kitchen and bathroom. Their workmanship, quality and knowledge is among the best. They go out of their way to satisfy their customer.
We had a total kitchen remodel along with a few extras:
–recirculating pump for the hot water tank
–an updated/relocated electrical box
–new hardwood floors in the living/dining rooms
Moshe’s design ideas & guidance along with foreman Yari’s
direction made the project a lot less stressful than we anticipated.
Office manager Lee did a great job coordinating/communicating,
& the crew was punctual, friendly, & professional. The project took
four weeks from start to finish. The estimate we received was not
the lowest, but the level of comfort & trust we had with
Moshe & crew was worth it.
Complete kitchen, powder room remodel. Whole house window replacement professional, clean, responsive team would highly recommend. Thanks precise home builders!
Precise Home Builders have carried out two major renovation projects for us. First time they completely replaced our kitchen and master bathroom. Both projects were finished to a very high quality, on budget and on time. The second project was mainly redecoration to bring other areas of our home up to the standard of the kitchen and bathroom! Again the work was done on budget and this time ahead of schedule. I found the team very easy to work with and very responsive to questions and ideas.
Precise remodeled my kitchen and extended my living room. They completed the project on time. They even corrected mistakes made by a previous contractor. When they completed the project, they cleaned and removed all trash. I was left with a beautiful kitchen and large living room. I was very happy with their work.
Kitchen renovation, hardwood floors, ceiling lights in 1500 condos. Moshe and his team were fast and professional from planning through finish. We love the results and the quality of the work. Highly recommend these guys!
Besides remodeling kitchen and two bathrooms we have wood floors throughout. Came up with unique plan for small bathroom glass shower.
Overall, we like their service, and would like to recommend to others. I first got referral about Dino through a friend’s sister. We interview about 5 vendors, how we decided to hired Precise Builders because Dino show us the very detail drawing on computer and made some really good suggestions that other contractors did not even mentioned , or say not able to do, and the cost seems reasonable even not the cheapest , he also brought us attention those items not included in his estimate`but we should expect to spend ,such as shower room doors, garden window ,appliances if we planned to buy new items.. etc.. (after we signed the contract we found the company also prepared the list.) which is great , some other contractor did not brought it up even it’s our own responsibility, so we kind know the expense mighty be. We checked the review from Angie’s list as we always do . because we wanted to know how others said. On the top of the above , Dino took efforts to find the color of the cabinet which I told him I care very much about it. When the project started, Andres was in charge, Andres is a very good team leader and he had very good team members, hard working, happy workers, and they were willing to match with our schedule , it made our life much easier. and he was very responsible , anything happened, he tried to made arrangement to be here, very patience and calm . The office people, such as Kareen always follow up and took care of us, always follow up even minor issues. So we always know where we are. The project were pretty much on schedule, only few days behind, we consider that was very good… Also, no surprise payment , even there was a very minor disagreement, but they well taken care.. the project completed totally within our plan. We were happy with our decision , but we do have few little suggestions: we believe Dino tried to make our life easier to brought vendors to us ( Counter top, bathroom tiles, shower room tiles etc)but, to think it over, we would rather go visit different show rooms, To see the chart or samll pieces sample are so different then see the display , we would be able to make even better choices .. The shower room high light was totally shocked me when the worker started to installed, Dino was far away , the vendor got upset and just said it was my choices, yes, it was my choices and I was exciting to see the small sample by then. but a no imagination people like me, I wished I could see a display rather then just small pieces. The shower room turn out ok, but it was pretty scary at the time. Of course , kitchen cabinet maker was only sample, but luckily, not only ourselves but all friends visited compliment the color , the cabinet maker ( Michael ? sorry can not remember his name) was really awesome and responsible and willing to made true suggestion according to his experiences ( not just to say what we like to hear) to the detail such as pulls and knobs, those looks tiny but also such high light for the kitchen , we are totally happy with him. We also glad that we hired Dino, thanks for our friend’s referral . we would happy to recommend him to others. but, Before we almost complicate the project, I asked Dino to gave us an estimate for our 2nd bed room’s bathroom and if he can recommend a person to fix our sun room window , he never took effort to do so, we are not sure if he was too busy or he did not think we will do it any time soon. But, at end, we would like to say. Yes, we are happy for the project, happy to work with Dino, Andres and his team , Kareen in the office . We love our new kitchen and guest bathroom.
Everything was done quickly and professionally. Precise Home Builders were excellent to work with, they listened to our concerns and always came up with great ideas on what we could do. I was / am very happy with the work that Dino and his team did for us in just under 3 months. They even worked well and patiently with the city inspectors. I couldn’t have asked for more… easy to work with, no headaches, and everything was done quickly without sacrificing quality. I am so happy that we found Precise Home Builders, and I would definitely hire them again for any additional remodeling work that we have.
Meeting and working with Moshe was a great experience. I trust him and his staff Shay and Olivia with a big project.
Thank you guys!
We hired Precise Home Builders for a bathtub to walk in shower conversation. We selected Precise Home builders based on Angie’s List reviews and positive comments from previous customers.
The project was successfully completed and we are very pleased with the results. All workers (hot mopper, tile setter,
painter, electrician/plumber) were competent and did a great job. The shower looks like a bathroom in a four-star
Although it took a bit longer than we expected, we are pleased with the final result.
Nice job overall. Satisfied with the professionalism of the project manager.
Amazing job and fantastic experience. Everybody involved is very professional, helpful and always on time. We used Precise Home Builders’s Architect and were very happy. The design ideas were fresh and exactly what we were looking for. Our experience was very stress free. Starting with demolition to the final touch ups – the quality of work is exceptional and the services they provide are superior to other companies. Precise Home Builders exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend them for any project.
Precise completely redesigned and updated our kitchen. Our contractor, Barry, was very responsive. Whatever question or concern I had, he always responded, “I’ll take care of it.” He also took us shopping for things like granite and tile.
The only complaint I have is their electricians were not the best–one seemed flummoxed by a doorbell wiring diagram, for example, and when we went up in the attic months after the job we noticed they’d left a bit of a mess (wires not secured carefully, the like). However, when I contacted Precise, they sent someone out quickly to clean up the electrical properly.
Overall we were satisfied, and we sometimes talk about the projects we will have Barry do for us in the future.
We got several bids before starting work on our condo. Moshe’s was the most expensive, but it was also by far the most detail-oriented and comprehensive; we had no change orders and we knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into at the start of the job. Moshe was direct and enthusiastic and we were eager to work with him from the start. His crews were all respectful and professional and they all did great work and we got good deals from his sub contractors. Our project manager, Kelly, was a great contact throughout the process, and we could always ask her or Moshe questions when buying materials. We were planning our wedding when we bought our condo and made it clear to Moshe that we had a very firm move-in date and that we had to move in by the end of February. He DID NOT get us in by late February – he got us in by the end of January, four weeks early. They essentially redid our entire condo in 6 weeks and did beautiful work. We couldn’t be happier and can’t wait to tackle that last bathroom soon.
They did an excellent job. The communication between us and them was excellent. We frequently met with them and spoke with them and that was the best part. Their work was excellent.
Had several estimates. Picked Precise because Moshe was extremely knowledgeable and seemed to understand my vision. Finished product is outstanding! Just what I envisioned. Crews were prompt, courteous, and conscientious. All his subs (cabinets, granite, flooring, …) provided 1st class service and quality. Love my kitchen and would definitely recommend and use Precise again.
Entire home renovation. from top to bottom. Awesome work!
Dino was great to work with. Very conscientious and flexible. I designed the garage and gave rough sketches to him to and he came back with architecture that matched it. This was a challenging project as it incorporated real stone to match our century old home. Dino did a great job all the way around and the garage is now one of the best parts of our property. My only complaint was that some of the crews that he hired could have been better about clean up. We found a lot discard trash, nails, razor blades and concrete debris after the job was done. I find this to be a problem with most construction crews and I only mention it because, I’m sure if you mention it up front that a guy like Dino will insist that his crews take care of it.
Very happy with Dino and the garage.
Bathroom was a total regut~it was demolished on May 27 & completed on June 17. Precise was not only diligent every day but also completed on schedule. In addition, all their workers (no subs) were respectful of my home, cleaned up every day like if it was there house or better yet…their mother’s house! Hard working folks!
Provider came in and quoted for a complete kitchen remodel our house was built in 1951 so everything was out of date we wanted new wiring new water pipes new electrical and a tankless water heater removing the old water heater from inside our house plus we wanted 2 walls removed from the kitchen to open it up they showed up and took on this monumental job with vigor and speed and our contractor steve kept us informed on every detail, since this was our first major construction job on our house we were nervous and kept asking questions and keeping up with each move that was made steve eased our worries and made this whole deal so easy the 2 months that it took to tear apart get the permits and put this kitchen back together went by so quick they were on top of everything clean effortless and too the point on all projects. sit in my living room every night staring into the kitchen cant believe what they accomplished for us we are extremely grateful for all they have done for us, the way they brought our kitchen to life is amazing. we are planning our next project and cant wait to see what precise and steve have in store for us next time.
I found Precise by looking at pictures at Houzz.com. A remodel they had completed in my area was exactly what I was looking for, so I shot them and email and met with Kevin. Although I received bids from three other contractors, I eventually chose Precise because Kevin seemed the most creative regarding design and the most transparent regarding services, customer care and workflow. Of course, his competitive pricing was a major factor, as well. Fortunately, I was not disappointed. Kevin, Lee and the entire Precise team were on time, on budget and very responsive to every concern and question that arose. I could not be happier with the final result and recommend Precise to anyone with remodeling dreams of their own. Steve Previdi Los Angeles, CA.
This was a standard kitchen remodel.
Demo of existing kitchen, wall and ceiling repair, new cabinets, plumbing, electrical, blew out and added on to our breakfast nook, new flooring. Lighting overhead and under cabinet.
Demo went smooth, house protected from dust. Construction crews were careful and courteous. We had a few small issues along the way but had Precise crews in immediately to take care of this.
We searched very hard to find the best service for the best price, Precise did not disappoint us.
Kitchen is complete, we are now pondering the other home improvement projects they can help us with!

I honestly could not imagine a better experience that the one I had with Precise. I did a total remodel of my kitchen and it is gorgeous. From the first meeting with Moshe who discussed what we could do, how long it would take and the cost, I felt I was in capable, reliable and trustworthy hands. The work started on the day we chose, and was done in exactly one month. The workmen arrived every day on time, were courteous, knowledgeable, friendly and professional. They cleaned up at the end of the day. There were no delays, and any problems we encountered were taken care of immediately. When I decided to go ahead with Precise, Moshe gave me a 3 page itemized breakdown of the work to be done and the cost. I did not pay a penny more than that.
In addition to advising me and helping me chose appliances, backsplash tile, countertop etc, I had a point person in the office who called me every day to let me know what was being done, who would be working that day, and to make sure I was happy with everything. She was absolutely lovely to deal with and I always felt I had someone to speak to at any time about any concerns I had.
Moshe runs an extraordinary business and has a terrific crew of people working for him. The quality of the cabinets is excellent, and the attention to detail was evident in all the work done. I highly recommend Precise and look forward to hiring them again for my next project.
First off, the owner Moshe is a real pleasure to work with. He and his team have a passion to do a good job. His office manager, Lee is on top of her game at all times. She did a great job of keeping me apprised of the status of the project, deliverables, and informed me when payments were due. This was supposed to be a three month project, and turned out to be a 4 month project, primarily because I added more to the scope of work. There was a long delay with the City of Claremont in getting permits which cause the project to be delayed about 1 1/2 months or so.
Moshe had great references for various vendors to work with. This made the project go smoother, as all of the references were people had good relationships with Moshe. In most cases, I received the contractor’s pricing for appliances and material.
His workers are one of the hardest working crews I’ve ever seen. They are passionate about doing a good job. The dry walling and slurry sealing was impeccable. Paint work was excellent. His foreman, Adalid, is very knowledgeable and thorough in his work. There was nothing that he could not solve.
I don’t want to make it sound like there were not any bumps in the road. There were communication issues that came up, and Moshe and his team were able to resolve. There were some disagreements about what was supposed to be included in the specs, but we worked through some of those issues.
Much of the communications was done by email which made the project easier for me to manage.
If there was anything that I would offer up that Moshe could have done better it would be to work more closely with the home
owner in anticipating exactly what is needed to satisfy the homeowner. One of the questions I had for Moshe was what would be the estimated cost of all the material I would have to buy to complete the job. His pricing was for doing the construction work. I made it clear to Moshe that I was building my dream home and that was not going to be skimping on appliances and material. I spent far more money on material than Moshe had estimated.
Moshe was quick to do a contract for me, and yes, he did give me opportunity to review the specifications, however, I felt that I was being rushed to sign a contract without fully absorbing all the specs. There were things that I had told Moshe that I wanted to do to the house, yet, it was not included in the specs. He did give me an opportunity to review and add, however, in my haste to get the project started, I didn’t look closely enough at all the specs to see if the items I expected he was going to do was in the contract. Needless to say, my advice to anyone who is embarking on a major remodel needs to completely know what he/she wants to have done and included in the project. Otherwise, all of these omitted items will be adds to the project.
My advice to Moshe to be an even more effective home builder, he should be anticipating what the customer wants before the customer even knows he/she wants it.
Overall, Moshe and his team was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him to anyone. I would use him again in the future.
We cannot recommend Precise Home Builders highly enough. In December 2012, my fiancée and I found ourselves in a less than ideal situation for a major remodel: We needed significant work done on our house, we wanted major improvements in addition to the repairs, we had a hard maximum budget, and we needed the work done in 6 months. Oh, and we were living across the country in New York City, had never been involved with a remodel before, and could only visit three times during the work. Six months later, we have a home that is better than our dreams, on time and on budget. Dino, Lee and the rest of their crew were amazing.
1) Dino did an amazing job of figuring out, and adapting to, our tastes. Early on in the process, Dino took us to tile and slab stores to pick out countertops and bathroom floors. He made a couple of countertop suggestions to start, but we fell in love with a somewhat different look. From that first choice, Dino immediately had our style figured out and was able to calibrate his suggestions to this style (and to be honest I don?t think we could accurately describe our style?but he knew what we liked). For example, on a later trip to a tile store for more bathroom tile and a back splash, Dino let us explore, sensed we were becoming overwhelmed, and then steered us towards a finite range of choices that would best work with the counters and tile we had already chosen. Maybe more impressively he filled in the details on a number of aspects of the home in ways that perfectly matched our style?the molding, a wine bar, built in cabinets in the laundry room, and lights, to name a few.
2) Other reviewers have commented that Precise is expensive. That?s not exactly true. We certainly got quotes from others that were cheaper, but drilling down into those quotes we realized that the lower prices sacrificed on materials and craftsmanship. Precise provides a detailed list of work to be done (ours included nearly 200 specific points); when we showed this to a family member who works as a contractor, he pointed out that a similar structure could be completed for less, but we were getting the best, at a very reasonable price. For example Dino suggested that we do the a ?mud job? or cement float under the bathroom floors and showers, rather than a more lightweight cement board. You may pay a little more with Precise, but it?s almost certainly for a better product.
3) Considering that we are young, had no experience with home improvements, and were not able to check up regularly on the work, Precise could have taken advantage of us. That didn?t happen and I think it is a testament to the their integrity and commitment to quality. One example of this: When we visited near the end of the construction, Dino walked us into the house, took one look at the pendant lights above a kitchen island, turned to us and said, ?Those aren?t placed correctly. See, this one is 8 inches from the edge of the (stove) hood, and this one is one is only 5 inches. I?m going to have the workers move them by an inch and a half each, so that they?ll be the same distance from the hood.? Importantly, we had not noticed the issue before Dino brought it up AND the kitchen was already almost completely finished?including the paint on the ceilings. But Dino had the workers move those lights. Similarly, when we moved in the only problem we noticed was low hot water flow to the kitchen sink–it ended up being a kinked line. Dino had someone out the same day, and called later to make sure everything was working right. . . he was more concerned about it than we were!
4) They are fast. Others had quoted 8-10 months of work if everything went perfectly. Precise said five and a half. And they stuck to it.
5) Precise was committed throughout to hitting the contract/estimate price?and even on bringing it down where possible. At one point Dino suggested doing away with a vaulted ceiling in part of the living room to save money to remodel a bathroom that we hadn?t originally planned on redoing (but badly needed to redo). Later in the work, when they ripped off the roof to replace it, they found that the previous roofers had not put plywood down?even though laying plywood under the roof was not included in the original contract, Precise did it for no additional cost. Indeed, throughout the work Precise endeavored to find ways to reduce our costs without sacrificing on quality.
6) Precise has a great network of suppliers?and is a great intermediary between you and them. Shopping for things like appliances was quick, cheap and painless. Further, when we decided to return a vanity, Precise negotiated down a restocking fee with the supplier.
7) They do a great job of communicating. When I would email with questions, I either got answer back within hours, or I got email explaining when they would be able to get back to me.
The only downfall was that he quoted me a little more than what I am budgeted for. However, I know you get what you pay for, and I believe in Moshe’s quality work. So I am going to have them do my remodeling project, I just have to delay it for a few months. Was very impressed with the “chemistry” I felt with Moshe that I know I will be well taken care of.
Dino and his crew were great. The contract was clear and detailed. Precise finished on time and on budget. In addition they made several useful design suggestions. All in all I am very satisfied with their work and definitely would work with them again..
Moshe, Caby, Karen & crew are great to work with. We did a complete kitchen remodel, interior paint and some flooring….done in 4.5 weeks! Great service, reasonable prices, clean and best of all, they think with you which saved us some money!
Marina del Rey, CA
My wife and I are first-time home-owners. We recently contracted Precise Home Builders to replace a load-bearing wall with a hidden beam, bump out the front of our house, and remodel our kitchen. This is the first time we’ve worked with a general contractor.
I’m a very skeptical, cautious person, so I was afraid of all the horror stories you normally hear about with general contractors — bad work, hidden costs, damaged houses, etc. A couple people have left negative reviews here on Yelp, too, so my guard was up as I went through the process of selecting a general contractor and met with Moshe, from Precise Home Builders.
My wife and I met with him several times, including at the site of one of his ongoing projects, and he put us in touch with a couple of his references (both of whom gave positive feedback and good advice on how to get the most out of working with a general contractor).
When we met with Moshe to discuss his bid, he went over it line by line and was able to provide thorough answers to all of our questions. His professionalism, attention to detail, and passion for interior design set Precise Home Builders apart from the other general contractors we were considering, and we signed with them.
After we signed the contract, Moshe set up an introductory meeting with Adalid, the foreman who would oversee construction. This was an opportunity for us to ask him any questions we had about the construction process, and for him to get a feel for the project and timeline involved. We also had a phone introduction to the project manager, Kelly, who would be our point of contact for any concerns and questions throughout the project. This high level of organization was wholly unexpected, and it really impressed us.
The project had great momentum from the very start. Demolition was done in the first couple days, and foundation-pouring, framing, plumbing, and electrical work was executed over the course of the first few weeks. We visited the site almost daily, to ensure progress was coming along as expected, and Adalid was always on-hand to field questions, explain problems, and make any adjustments we wanted.
We learned pretty quickly that despite being prepared with an architectural plan and our engineer’s drawings, issues come up during the course of construction. The most interesting problem we solved was that of our exterior load-bearing beam. Due to the shape of our house’s roof, this beam couldn’t be hidden inside of the wall — instead, it needed to be placed just inside of the house. This was a big problem because this was where we wanted our kitchen cabinets to go! How could we place cabinets on this wall with the beam in the way? Adalid, Moshe, our engineer, and even our cabinet maker put their heads together to figure out a solution, and eventually decided to hide the beam in a soffit, and hang the cabinets below the soffit. I usually hate soffits, but this one is employed in such an elegant manner that we actually love it! Moshe and his crew managed to turn an engineering challenge into a beautiful architectural feature.
Moshe’s crew finished the project a week ahead of schedule. Our house has been completely transformed and I almost feel like it was a magic trick…. I am still trying to wrap my head around how we ended up with such an amazing kitchen! We threw a small BBQ party for Moshe and the crew, to show our thanks for their hard work.
If you have doubts about Precise Home Builders — let them go! Moshe knows what he’s doing, he’s got a ton of experience, and he’s dedicated to doing excellent work. His contractors are top-notch and equally dedicated to their craft. Thanks, Moshe, Adalid, Kelly, Jaime, Jimmy, Victor, Diego, Uriel, Wilbur, Nestor, Mike, and everyone else who helped make our vision a reality!
I don’t think we can rave enough about Precise and particularly our contractor, Ronen. We did a complete kitchen gut/remodel and powder room gut/remodel. In addition, since we had just purchased the home, we went through Precise for both a complete electrical upgrade and copper pipe plumbing refit. I found Precise after doing a thorough search-and-interview process for contractors (I am a researcher by profession). Precise’s prices were very compatible with what the current market was bearing; but what really sold us was the timeline. As I was taking a hiatus from work to oversee the work on the house and the move, it was critical to us that things be done in a timely fashion.
Ronen was extremely professional, patient, and easy to get along with. He made several suggestions that proved to be both cost-effective and efficient – For instance, utilizing the same electrician and plumber for the work throughout the rest of the house as the kitchen. He suggested that we do our kitchen-adjacent bar in the same style as the kitchen to make the space seem even larger (and he was right). He also suggested we utilize the same hard wood flooring in the powder room as we were using in the kitchen – Again, the continuity (considering the relatively open floor plan of the downstairs) is beautiful, due to these suggestions.
Precise was timely and informative when it came to billing and scheduling; Ronen was either on site every day or checked in with me if he wasn’t going to be there. I always knew who was due to show up at our home, when, and what work they were scheduled to do. Ronen provided an excellent list of vendors for us to work with regarding flooring, tiling, etc. – but at the same time, when we deviated from that list (i.e., choosing another appliance company), Ronen immediately worked with the company of our choice. Having said that, we were very pleased with the vendors he suggested for the cabinets, backsplash, counters and faucets, in particular. The plumber is also a gem.
The project was finished on time, to the day, it was promised. Hard to believe a full kitchen remodel for a larger kitchen like ours could actually be done in eight weeks, but it was. Furthermore, it was on budget. Precise gave us advance notifications of each of the installments due, and nothing was ever a surprise.
We plan to do more remodeling work on the house within the next few years and will be scheduling that with Precise, and Ronen. Excellent work! Thank you!
Wow! I will have to agree with previous reviewer Brian.
For my tiny bathroom, I needed a complete gut and remodel. I interviewed over 10 contractors and nobody supplied confidence, trust and experience more than Steve at Precise. Two major questions every client has is 1) were they on time and 2) were they on budget and I can say YES to both. Not only were they on time for project but everyday they worked they were at my house bright and early and they worked very hard…everyday!
A paragraph for the daily hard workers. Not only were they early and diligent workers but they were all very respectful of my house, kind, and neat. From demo to tiling to paint they were all professional. They cleaned up everyday like it was their house (or maybe better…haha)! I had no worries, no issues!
Thank you Precise & a shout out to Steve, Jose, Hugo and all the rest!
Oh and thank you so much for the lovely flower arrangement!
Ok, I can finally write a review since everything is done. We had quite a bit of work done on our house: added one bedroom, one bathroom, expanded/remodeled our kitchen, removed a wall, new floors throughout.
We interviewed 7 different contractors and we’re happy we went with Moshe, the owner of Precise Home Builders. We felt that we could communicate with him and he has a passion for his work. His pricing is definitely fair. You may find a bid slightly cheaper but you will find higher bids as well. I would say he is mid-priced, but the quality will be high end.
What you need to know is that our project was ON TIME and ON BUDGET. I’ve heard many horror stories from others but I can safely say that our project is now completely done and there were no major hiccups. The actual construction from demo to finish was PRECISELY 3.5 months.
They passed every city inspection the first time, so I can tell that their work is not only quality but time efficient since they don’t have to re-do work and then schedule another inspection which would delay the project. The workers pay attention to detail and they were respectful in our home.
To summarize the highlights: on time, on budget, trustworthy, ease of communication, low stress, good honest people to work with, well priced.
Other contractors: do they know what they’re doing? Are they going to increase your costs throughout the project? Will they stay on the timeline?
Special shout out to RONEN. He works for Moshe and is super easy to talk to by phone or email. Numerous questions/concerns were addressed often within an hour or two.
I strongly recommend Precise Home Builders with a five star review!!
Precise builder are Great! They came out in a knick of time and did a fantastic honest well priced job. I will recommend their service to anyone! Thanks
This is a case of where you pay for what you get. And you may think after your first quote that you’re going to pay too much, but in the end, it’s because they are top notch. Precise Home Builders was professional throughout the entire process. Not only were they exactly on time with 3 bathroom remodel in only 3 weeks, but they knew exactly what they were doing. Everything looks amazing. There were a few minor problems, but they quickly fixed anything we saw as wrong.
Steve is very upfront and communicative. He answers texts and calls fairly quickly. Emails, not so much. They know what they are doing and their team works efficiently. We now love our new bathrooms and are very happy with the results.
I have to agree whole heartedly with other reviewers – the work that Precise Builders did actually makes me say WOW out loud when I walk into my home. During my first meeting with Moshe, the owner of Precise Home Builders, he listened to my hopes, dreams, wishes and concerns. He was professional, thorough and a pleasure to work with right from the start. I was very afraid of selecting the wrong contractor since it was such a huge investment but I felt confident with Moshe and I couldn’t be happier.
They gutted my kitchen, made beautiful custom cabinets, pulled back a wall, removed the old carpeting and installed gorgeous hard wood floors throughout, installed new baseboards, did some dry wall work, tiled the fireplace and painted the entire condo.
I liked that they assigned a project manager to work with their clients. My project manager was Kelly and she was terrific. If I had any questions or concerns she was always available to speak with. She responded immediately to emails. She did research for me when I needed help and she was with me every step of the way to hold my hand throughout the process.
Moshe and his crew were always extremely professional and such a pleasure to work with. They all take pride in their work which is so refreshing in this day and age. His crew made great suggestions along the way which I really appreciated. There are times when I just didn’t think things through like where to put the light switches or which direction would be better in laying the hardwood floors but his crew worked with me to make the best decisions for my home.
All the work they did was such quality! My kitchen is breathtaking. Mike made my custom cabinets and worked with me to get exactly what I wanted within the space I had. Nothing in my condo was level so installing the cabinets were not easy but he did such a great job you would never know the place was so uneven to begin with. Anastacio installed my floors and they are flawlessly installed. They are stunning! I would say he is a master of his craft. Neeson the electrician was so incredibly helpful with lighting suggestions and his work was perfect. Christian and his painting crew were a pleasure to work with and they did a fantastic job with repairing all my ceiling cracks and painting the entire place.
They showed up every morning ready to work, and they put in a good days work each and every day.
The bid I received from Moshe was fairly priced compared to the other bids I had received. They actually finished ahead of schedule which was amazing!
I would recommend Moshe and his entire team to anyone who is need of a professional contractor who takes pride in his work and works with his clients to create an amazing home. I couldn’t be happier with my selection of a contractor and I look forward with working with Precise Home Builders, Moshe and his team on my next remodel project.
Thank you Moshe for showing me there are good, honest, hard working people who honor their word and take pride in making their clients dreams come true.
During the process of looking for contractors for a kitchen and bathroom remodel, I ran across Precise Home Builders on Houzz.com. Setting up an estimate was handled promptly and with the utmost professionalism. I dealt directly with Ronen for our project, and it was pleasure. He handled all our questions with patience and professionalism. After giving us a very good estimate(price wise) he followed up with a 3D rendering of what our bathroom and kitchen could look like. This is the type of effort you can expect with Precise. Ultimately, our needs changed through the process, and we ended up hiring a different contractor that was personally recommended to us by a friend. It was such a hard decision because of the effort that Ronen and Precise had shown us. I can’t recommend their work ethic and professionalism enough. If you don’t want to wade through a bunch of dud contractors, just do yourself a favor and call Precise. I will definitely call them in the future if I need work done.
This was THE BEST company I could have chosen. I got their name from Angie’s List and when they came to my condo, they had a computer program which showed me what my new kitchen cabinets would look like. They remodeled my kitchen and master bathroom and guest bathroom. They did quality work according to schedule and their staff was easy and wonderful to work with. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a beautiful product!
