" My wife and I contracted with SoCal Design to remodel our very plain, outdated master bathroom which had been built in 1989. This was our first experinece with such an effort and we were a bit anxious. The space available was modest as master baths go. The shower area was like a small phone booth (remember those?)and was a particular feature we wanted to improve. But neither my wife or I are inclined toward home design or decortaing. So while we had some general ideas about materials we'd like to see (granite and travertine) we didn't have a lot of specifics on what we'd like to see. Chris listened to us and really helped us finalize the specifics very quickly. He wasn't pushing his ideas but really listened to us and what we wanted in the "look and feel" of the new space. He drew up a nice plan and off we went. The SoCal Design crew took the bath down to the studs and started to create the new bath. The crew specialists were all polite and professional...as well as neat. Along the way Chris added some nice design touches we would have never thought of. These were all done within the estimate and really added a beautiful finish to the entire look. The result was a new master bath that we absolutely love. The workmanship was terrific, from the granite and tile work to the painting. We could not have been more pleased. The bath now looks huge compared to its previous form; the use of glass, tile and granite is very "high end;" and the whole thing is really classy if I do say so myself. The project was completed on time and within the original cost estimate. All the crew was a joy to work with and it is clear they take pride in their work. A few weeks after completion we discovered a small crack in the piece of granite that formed the shower threshold. When I brought this to their attention they responded immediately and corrected the issue. Bottomline: I would use SoCal Design again in a heart beat and would highly recommend them to others.
" We first met Chris at the Home Show at the fairgrounds a few years ago and were impressed with the quality of workmanship and professionalism displayed. Since then Chris and his SoCal team have designed and remodeled our kitchen, master suite, a small 2nd bathroom, living room, dining room and family room representing about 75% of our home. We consistently receive complements from visitors on the design and workmanship that is evident in the final result. We highly recommend Chris and his team without any hesitation.
" I would be happy to recommend So Cal Design for the following reasons.
1) The cost estimates were accurate.
2) Once the work was started the workers kept working until completion, rather than leaving the house in a mess, mid construction.
3) The work was done well, and the workers did all of their own clean-up.
4) The owner didn't try to sell me items I didn't want, but he was attentive to doing the work I did want. He also has excellent sub contractors.
" My husband and I want to thank you for the fabulous kitchen renovation. It's such a joy to live and cook in! "
" I highly recommend Chris and his team! They are amazing and work to give you exactly what you need. They are expert remodelers and can do any job - big or small. I've had my whole house remodeled by them and would recommend them to everyone! "
" I hired Socal Design in May 2009 to completely remodel my kitchen, powder room and living room. From the very beginning, Chris Beatty of Socal Designs based in southern California was very attentive, professional and diligent. He gave me a competitive estimate, always responded to my emails and calls within 1 business day and his crew always showed up and worked when they said they would be there.
Chris even went above and beyond by helping me to pick out elements of my remodel such as the kitchen back splash and granite color -- which I absolutely love. He understood me and knew exactly what I was look for. Chris and his team are not just Contractors, they are truly a unique one stop shop that take your vision and make it come to life.
I would highly recommend Socal Design for anything as small as new closet cabinets all the way up to redesigning an entire house. "
