The Challenges


This Victorian Era home was one of the first homes built in Pleasant Hill, California. It was a 100+ years old had some serious foundation issues. Our lead contractor, Paul Samuels developed a plan to safely construct a master bedroom inside the old home. We were able to extend the master bedroom, install new hardwood floors, build a new closet, install new lighting fixtures, reconstruct new walls and lower the rooms ceiling. A project of this magnitude can be stressful but we came to work each day with a smile, and worked towards remodeling our clients home to their specific needs. See below to see her review.

Paul Samuels is your guy.

It was time to replace the claw foot tub in our very tiny, only bathroom. The tub seemed like a good idea 15 years ago when we remodeled our 100 year old farmhouse, but not anymore; we were ready for a great shower.
Paul Samuels came to our house 5 times before we had even decided to contract with him.  He brought samples of materials, lists of references and potential suppliers, asked and answered questions. We all had a clear idea of what was desired and expected before the project even began. We never felt as if he was pushing, just that he wanted us to know all the possibilities. His estimate was fair and reasonable.

Throughout the remodel, Paul was there to inspect, oversee and assure everything was done completely and done right.  He encouraged and cajoled subcontractors to deliver and meet deadlines.  More than once we were told by a subcontractor that the installation would be done “a week from Friday” only to have them come back after talking with Paul to do the install “day after tomorrow”. The Samuels Construction crew (Victor and Manuel?) was great. Skilled and efficient, leaving the job site neat and clean every day. It was a pleasure having them work in and around our home.
The project was completed before expected and we are so pleased.  Best shower ever!

As time went on, Paul pointed out some improvements that could be done for stability of the house.  Again, price was reasonable, we never felt as if it was a sales pitch, simply advice from a guy who knows (because we knew his suggestions were spot on).  That extra work was done along with the shower remodel.

No matter the size or complexity of your project, we highly suggest you give Samuels Construction a call. From a shower remodel, concrete, additions, foundation issues here is someone who can do the job for you and do it well.
We feel as if we have found someone who can do any job for us, no more searching.  And it’s great to work with someone local.  We’ll contact Paul to handle those many items on our ‘to-do’ list in the future.
