Remodeling and Additions
"Craig and Mike are real pros! Who would have thought it possible to deliver a complete 'down to the studs' remodel project on time as promised. Well they did it and did it well! We found CALCBS to be a very professional, high integrity, exceptionally well-organized, and results focused firm. We worked very compatibly with Mike throughout the construction phase and easily resolved typical 'remodel' issues when they arose. They’d be our go to contractors should we ever embark on another residential construction project."

"We have just completed our third major project with CALCBS in the last 5 years. We previously used them for a complete energy upgrade project. The second project was remodeling our three bathrooms. Both of these projects went very smoothly; the finished product was excellent and the work was finished on time. The largest and most recent project was fully remodeling our kitchen, replacing our existing hardwood flooring, remodeling our fireplace and replacing the windows in our kitchen and family room. We are thrilled with the results and workmanship. The finished remodel is truly beautiful. We would use them again for any remodel without hesitation."

"Craig and Mike were very professional and easy to work with. Everything was discussed up front and if any changes needed to be made, they quickly revised the contract with a change order and we moved forward. The whole kitchen remodel, including new windows in dining area, sanding and resealing hardwood floors, remodel of fireplace, took about 31 days! Very happy with our remodel! We love walking into that room every day, it's now so bright and modern. We have gotten tons of 'wows' when friends and family come to visit. Thank you CALCBS!"
"Hiring Craig Lawson and Mike Fitzpatrick to remodel and update our kitchen was a great decision. Having met Craig on another project, we asked if he would be interested to help with our 1980's kitchen. We met with Craig and Mike, put a plan together, began work in April. finished in May, all while staying on budget. Mike and all his sub-contractors were very professional and a joy to work with. Everyone showed up on time and stayed on the job until done. Every day the workplace was left neat and clean. We highly recommend this company for their integrity, professionalism, and efficiency."

"In August 2016, Bill and I decided on CAL Custom Building Services to remodel our master bathroom. We wanted to remove a jetted tub, remove the window above it and transform the area into a large curb-less shower. In addition, we added a skylight in the new shower area, a window on the west wall, new counter tops and fixtures. The job was done in a timely manner, on budget, and with every problem addressed and handled professionally. We are thrilled with the finished bath and it exceeded our expectations. Because of such excellent work and concern for our wishes, we again went with CALCBS when it was time to remodel our kitchen in 2017. We didn't change the floor plan of the kitchen, but did replace counter-tops, back splash, pantry configuration and the flooring. We wanted stainless steel counters and back splash in addition to two large, deep stainless steel under-mount sinks. When all was said and done, the job was done right, and we couldn't be happier. Thanks CALCBS!"

"When we decided to remodel our home, doing three areas (kitchen, guest bath and laundry room) at the same time, our friends and family thought we were crazy. Needless to say, it took a little courage to proceed, but we are here to say we couldn’t be happier with our experience with CAL Custom Building Services. From the start, working with Craig Lawson, Mike Fitzpatrick, and their crew was a real pleasure. Unlike other projects done piecemeal and fit in around other jobs, once we began with CALCBS, we were assured work would be done every day until the project was completed. We were amazed at how much was accomplished in a short time.
The crew, led so competently by Mike Fitzpatrick, was not only never late, but was frequently assembled and ready to begin early each morning. They were careful as they worked, with coverings and drop cloths everywhere they were needed. At the end of each work day, they cleaned meticulously. One of the things that always stood out was both Craig and Mike’s availability to answer questions, explain processes and work with us when we wanted to make a change. Response time was terrific; we could always count on a quick return call, email or visit when we requested it. Our project turned out to be GORGEOUS and we are completely and totally satisfied with the experience. Not only would we recommend CALCBS to anyone for a building project, but we are eagerly anticipating working with the company again."

"Our relationship with Craig Lawson and his expert team is held in the highest esteem after the remodeling of the bathroom in our home. His team members were professional, friendly, punctual, and respectful of our home by cleaning up at the end of the day. They went over and beyond to please us and make sure their work was met with our approval. Any questions or concerns we had were resolved immediately. The contractor and sub-contractors he chose were also outstanding in their field. They worked with us to make sure we were completely satisfied with their service. We are pleased to say that not only did they complete the remodel on time – they were ahead of schedule. All in all, we are very pleased with CAL Custom Building Services and would definitely call upon them again when we need any type of remodel in the future."

"For the second time in two years, we decided to brave the world of remodeling; this time it was our master bathroom and bedroom. There was never a question of who would oversee the project: CALCBS had done our kitchen and guest bath the prior year and we were thrilled with the results. As before, Craig Lawson's professionalism was there from the start. The work ethic is premier: the team arrived either on time or earlier than scheduled, showed up every day as expected, were as quiet as possible, and cleaned the area at the end of each work day. Mike Fitzpatrick, the "boss" on the job, was always pleasant, professional and easy to work with. He was tasked with making sure everything went on schedule and did a superb job on keeping us on the calendar as planned. Their attention to detail with every aspect of our project was exactly what we had come to expect from them. The bathroom is a dream and every time I walk into it, I look around with both awe and satisfaction that we got exactly what we hoped for. We will enjoy our home makeover for years to come.
Don and I can't thank CALCBS enough for the job they did and how they have beautified our home."

Commercial Renovations & Repairs
"Without hesitation, I would like to submit this recommendation for CAL Custom Building Services. I have had the pleasure of working with Craig, Mike, and their crew for the past six years. CALCBS has managed numerous projects at Farmers Lane Plaza in Santa Rosa, including the complete renovation of the entire shopping center. From start to finish, they have gone above and beyond to make sure the job goes smoothly, stays on schedule, and on budget. What truly sets this company apart is the experience of both Craig and Mike: their expertise, communication, forward thinking, and their relationships with top quality subcontractors and government officials. I would highly recommend CALCBS for any type of project. They're simply the best!"

"CAL Custom Building Services was hired by the Oakmont Golf Club to take care of a mold remediation problem existing in our Quail Inn banquet area stemming from a water leak that occurred the winter before. The work scope was defined by a mold remediation expert, Pacific IAQ. The project was to be completed on a very tight schedule as we had one of our largest weddings scheduled for less than a month after the work was to commence. After deconstruction began, it was discovered more mold existed inside additional walls. CALCBS expanded their work scope by almost 50%. With Herculean efforts by their team, they completed the remediation project for us on the original schedule and to excellent quality standards. We thank CALCBS for their hard work and dedication, thus allowing us to reopen our award winning wedding venue on schedule."
