Simon and Michele Blackburn, Encinitas CA

Just wanted to say thank you so much for a great remodel and addition to our home. The difference is has made already is amazing.


Also we wanted to thank you and your team for your patience when I 'added' work to the original project. Your team worked diligently with real professionalism and were fun to have around! We miss them already!


Roy and Dena Martin, Poway

BWB Contractors was fantastic. They always followed through on everything the team said they would do from Ben all the way across the team.


The team even went so far to make sure our dogs and cats were not allowed out when we asked for them not to be. The team was very kind to explain what they were doing when we asked and I couldn't ask for better people to be in our home.


I can't imagine calling anyone else after the great experience we just had.


The entire crew deserve a cheer from all of us; they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable with them in the house. I know there were a few surprises along the way in the job but Ben and the team maintained a calm and professional manner and worked with us to still get the job done and on time and on budget. These guys are the best!!!


Larry and Laura Malter

We hired BWB Contractors to do three different tasks in our home: 1. replace a fixed skylight with an openable skylight, 2. hardwood floor nearly all of our second floor, and 3. hardwood floor our stairwell as well as custom build a new "Craftsman-styled" handrail, post and endcaps for the stairs. We were highly impressed!! Every employee/subcontractor was diligent in scheduling the time frame that they would be working in our home, communications were very, very good. Each employee/subcontractor performed excellent, detailed, "perfection-istic" work; even then, the prime contractor would inspect the work and find details that my husband or I would not have noticed, and have them "clean-up" the job with small detailed improvements. Everyone who stepped into our home was kind, courteous, professional, respectful and responsive!! We have had one major home addition performed, and two kitchen remodels and I have no doubt who I will consult on any future projects - BWB Contractors!  


Richard and Katie Feifer

You do great work at really reasonable prices, and do more than is asked of you (sometimes without charging us, which we really appreciate). You're great to work with, fun, always upbeat and ready to roll with the punches - there seems to be no problem or surprise that gets you down. We also appreciate how creative you are in finding solutions to challenges. You can look at a space and immediately see better ways to deal with an issue that we envisioned ourselves. When issues come up on a job, you're always available to figure out the solution and make it happen.


Evan and Dawn Davies

Working with BWB contractors was simple and easy. Ben was extremely helpful and involved in all phases of the project and was always extremely flexible. He worked with us to design and build what we wanted within our budget.


All work was meticulously and high quality. Fit and finish work was fantastic and designed into existing construction such that is is difficult to see what was new vs old construction. Ben's team went above our expectations to address any issue and made sure we were extremely satisfied BWB's employees and contractors were profession, helpful and courteous.


We will use BWB Contractors again and would highly recommend BWB Contractors to anyone else.


Thank you BWB Contractors for a very satisfying hassle free experience. Pleasure to work with Ben and his team and will be sure to do so again.


Mike and Veronica Johnson

We live in Poway and have used BWB Contractors for several home improvement projects from having a tile roof put on the house, stone work and paint to the outside, and a full kitchen, great room and bathroom remodel. It was extremely easy working with Ben and his crew. During the planning stage, Ben brought in a designer, who after discussions with us came up with a concept that we fell in love with. They both had great ideas for our home improvements. 


It was also easy to make changes during the construction phase. Ben and his crew were all very professional and so pleasant to deal with. We are very pleased with the quality of work and the overall appearance of the finished projects.  We now have the perfect home for entertaining our friends and relatives thanks to Ben and BWB Contractors!


Mike and Julie Morrell

Our experience with Ben Brady of BWB Construction could not have been better. Ben and his crew were always on time each day with a smile on their face and ready to work.


Each evening Ben would call me and let me know what was scheduled to happen the next day and re-cap the current day. If there were any unforeseen snags (there are always snags) to the work flow he explained what happened and how he was going to fix it. This really helped us keep our job moving towards completion in a timely manor.


Each day his crew would clean up as though it was their last day on the job. This helped keep our home much cleaner during this kitchen remodel.


Our job was major kitchen re-model we re-plumbed all of the piping which was underground to over head, ran new gas lines for the stove and added electrical, flooring and cabinetry.


At the end when the job was finished. I did not need a punch list because BWB had done such a good job to start with there was no need to come back and fix anything.


My hat is off to Ben his quality control it was spot on perfection.


I would highly recommend BWB to anyone doing any type of re-model from a ground up total new home or a simple bathroom he is your guy. I you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me.


Brian Alikhani - Carlsbad

BWB built a bedroom with bathroom, and a large patio over one of the garages at my property in Carlsbad. They built the room in a way that nobody can tell it’s an addition! The entire construction took only two months and they kept the area very clean. The project was within the budget and ahead of time. They have an amazing crew and know construction well.


The quality and speed of work exceeded my expectations.


BWB’s employees are professional and communicate well.


I will definitely use BWB for my future projects. I have lots of confidence in what they can do.


BWB’s mission is to please its customers. They are extremely customer-oriented and left me with a great experience.

Tressa Klossner - Carlsbad

I have known Ben Brady and his family for more than 20 years and I am in the third house that Ben has provided services for me. This includes Real Estate Property Inspections by a certified licensed contractor; Plumbing; Painting (indoor and outdoor), Carpentry; Masonry (travertine; granite; concrete) Flooring (carpet, tile and vinyl); Appliance Installation; Electrical; Roofing, Gutters and Stucco Repair.


Not only is Ben’s work and that of his team of superior quality but Ben personally makes sure that his each and every job is up to his personal standards through constant communication and personal inspections.


All the BWB contractors are courteous, personable and hard working. I was particularly impressed with his painting crew; I was at a loss for a color for a very large area and Ben’s team made recommendations and made multiple trips with various colors and applied sample sections encouraging us to live with the colors for a few days before impulsively starting the job with my original choice. This turned out to be the best advice ever; I completely changed my mind and still so happy months later with the choices.


I would never use another contractor for anything. I strayed once and learned my lesson. Trust is hard to come by in this line of work; when you find a winner, you stay.


Please feel free to use me as a personal and professional phone reference - I will take any calls and allow anyone to see the work in our home.

Gina Alazard 2011, Loft

Our entire experience with BWB Contractors was exceptional! Ben built an indoor, 162 ft2 loft which required expanding the roof line with a dormer. The outcome was fantastic and better than we had hoped for. Our addition feels like it has always been part of our home. Not only was the workmanship top-quality, the entire job was completed in only three weeks. Ben, his crew, and all his subcontractors were extremely professional, courteous, trustworthy, and hard working. They would always arrive early, respected our family’s privacy when we were at home, and did a thorough clean up at the end of the day. We highly recommend Ben to anyone that needs home improvements.


Mark and Susan Connal

We hired BWB to oversee the remodel of our home in Oceanside built in 1953. What began as a remodel turned into a complete rebuild to a virtually new home. Ben Brady and his crew at BWB handled every step of the process professionally and at a cost far less than we ever expected. Great team! Great work! Great price! We highly recommend BWB and would use them again in a heartbeat. Thanks Ben!


Tracey Day

I had a remodel to my kitchen by BWB Contractors, Inc. in 2009. Ben and his team of workers were excellent and I felt comfortable with them in my home. They tore down a wall and opened up the entire room relocating plumbing, electrical, windows and remodeled all the cabinet placement. I worked closely with Ben to make my vision come alive. He had great ideas and helped me implement them. All the subcontractors that Ben uses were great as well. I haved used BWB for other home repairs and will continue to use them and refer them to all my friends. He is honest and does outstanding work.

Testimonial Three

Matt and Leona Magro

My wife and I live in Oceanside and decided to do a remodel and room addition to our home. After an extensive search for contractors, we chose BWB and were never disappointed. The quality of work, commitment to excellence, and attention to detail was awesome. Every aspect of the job was fully explained, the options discussed, and there were never any surprises. For my wife and I, the workmanship was just as important as the integrity of the people doing the job. BWB was a team of honest, hard-working men that worked with integrity and customer satisfaction in mind. They always returned my phone calls; they showed up every day on time and called if there were any changes or delays. Since the completion of our remodel, I have recommended BWB to several friends and family members and would not hesitate to refer them to anyone I know. Thanks again Ben, for making our remodel a great experience.

Testimonial Three

Rick and Kathy Scaramella

As a business owner, personal service and communication is everything to me. My experience with BWB Contractors, Inc. started with very insightful and detailed step by step planning and proposals upfront minimizing the need for costly change orders later. Always a bit trepidatious about starting a remodeling project of any size, it was extremely refreshing to experience a construction company that does exactly as promised, completed on time and on budget and exceeded our expectations of satisfaction. Thank you BWB Contractors, Inc.

Testimonial Three

Rick and Danielle Delaney 2010

I have used BWB several times and have been highly satisfied with both the customer service and workmanship. BWB goes above and beyond the quality of work I expected.

Absolutely.....I would use BWB again and I have recommended them to several friends who very pleased with their work.

Testimonial Six

Greg and Louise Oxhorn

We have used BWB Contractors for several major remodel projects over the last few years and EVERY project has turned out better than the one before it. Most recently we re-did our master bedroom and bath and it looks and feels like a 5 star hotel! Ben and his team are incredible. They work extremely hard and are always nice and pleasant to be around. Each and every person who works for Ben really cares about doing a great job, not just a good job. I refer to them as artists because their work is that good. We honestly can´t imagine using anyone other than BWB ever again!

Testimonial Five

John and Janis Zihla

Where to begin, Ben asked if we would be willing to write a testimonial with our impressions of his company and about their workmanship. It is our pleasure to do so.This is not our first Rodeo. My wife and I have been remodeling homes/condos for over 25 years. We have rebuilt and remodeled a minimum of 15 homes/condos/apartment units over that time frame from room additions to complete "California" remodels.


I can absolutely and honestly say I only wish that I had met him earlier in my life. It would have made the early years a lot easier on my body. Ben has done several projects for us over the last few years...from our current ocean front home in Cardiff, to an apartment building we own in Carlsbad, and he just completed the most amazing dollar for dollar transformation of them all....an ocean view Duplex in Cardiff that was the "dog" of the neighborhood.


A tear down of a building that no one else wanted to deal with...30 year old mixed block construction with plenty of illegal add-ons and continuous "lowest bid" non licensed quality work over the last 30 years.


Ben had the vision and skills to make this pig sing...and get all the permits and requirements met without any major issues. In less time, and with far greater creativity than I would have ever thought possible. He is without question a craftsman of the highest caliber, and his subs without exception share his commitment to quality and service. That building is now the "Resort" of the neighborhood with added property value to boot.


He and his crews finished on time, and it has been so pleasant dealing with him that I have decided to do 3 more Apartments with him in 2012.


The most telling part to me abut a contractor and/or subs attitude and professionalism is the way they leave their jobs at the end of the day. Believe me...that says it all. They are immaculate and never left a pile of debris for us the homeowner to deal with.


My wife and I chose to live in our remodel for over 3 years as we struggled to get everything completed. Ben Brady and his crews came in and did the majority of the real work on our home and created the nicest property we have ever owned.


He had he vision and the ability to complete what the other guys started and did it far better than I could even imagine it. Feel free to call on me at any time....this is the first testimonial I have ever written...I stand behind what I say. Ben and his crews are the only folks you should consider.


Ben and the boys do it RIGHT...the first time and every time. No cut corners...nor is there any attempts to cut corners. He provided great advise that only years of experience can generate, and his extensive framing background saved us a fortune as he negotiated design changes,(with great tack I might add) with a very well known and respected architect we engaged for the design of this home.


Ben was the kingpin between "theory" and "practicality" and in the end we ended up with the same look that the architect had in mind, but with a simpler and more "bullet proof" construction technique as we are right off the beach with wind driven rain and salt air. Ben noted that the architects original designs while beautiful would leave several "leading edges" that could and would eventually trap moisture and create decay over time no matter how well those areas were initially sealed.


I did not have to specify only copper and stainless steel hardware, or all the other ways many contractors might skimp on for near the water applications. Everything was first class all the way, and these decisions will lead to the longevity of the home that we were looking for.


They have the skills to do it all....from budget minded "rental upgrades" in our rental apartments and condos...to the very best construction and materials for a beach house Ben and his crews can and will do it all.


I would consider it an honor to answer any questions you may have regarding Ben or his company. Feel free to drive by the jobs....they speak for themselves!

Testimonial Four

Frank and Susie Kolle

We have used BWB services for a number of remodels and renovations in our home. Specifically bathrooms and kitchen. Ben has a great attention to detail, is able to offer suggestions and advice to assure the best finished product. BWB is time and schedule conscious and does what they can to minimize being inconvenienced during the construction phase. Ben is cost conscience without skimping on the final quality of his work. We have and will continue to recommend BWB to friends and family.

Testimonial One

John and Tracy Smaller 2010

My husband and I live in Encinitas and decided to do an outdoor addition to our home. My husband has a building background and was extremely selective in choosing BWB after interviewing three other contractors. What an INCREDIBLE experience! We looked forward to every day that Ben and his amazing crew was on the job. The quality of their work and their attitude was nothing but excellent and we were not gouged for the extras that we requested during construction. But for me it was even more than this. It was a team of skilled men that worked with integrity. They always returned my phone calls; they showed up every day on time and called if there were any changes or delays. They came to work happy and tidied up every day before leaving. I loved having them at my home every day for nearly three months. We have decided to do more work at the house and won't even bother talking to anyone else, we will be using BWB. Thank you Ben and a special thanks to Reuben!!
