David Brandsen Construction:
David Brandsen Construction has been building and remodeling in San Diego County since the beginning of the year 2000. Working primarily on large custom homes, as well as customizing high end tract homes, we are a full service general building contractor that works toward perfection like no other in the industry. Having worked on and remodeled many beautiful custom homes, we are well accustomed to working with high end automated door, window and wall systems, lighting control systems, as well as whole house automation. We consistently strive to use green materials whenever possible, but also love the beauty of wood in all that we do. Attention to detail and a love of the trade is what makes our work stand out above all others. Our craftsmanship and caring shows in everything we do throughout every project.
David Brandsen has worked in the custom home industry since 1989. Having never worked in the tracts, he learned working only on high end, one off, custom homes. David is a carpenter by trade and is knowledgeable in all areas of woodworking, including concrete forming, framing and finish work. He also has an excellent understanding of every trade that comes through a project and is well aware of sub contractors and their performance. David stays abreast of all the latest industry technology, and loves to be one of the first people to use new technology as it arrives.
David is personally on the jobsite each and every day to see first hand that things are proceeding properly, making sure everyone is working safely, that the jobsite remains tidy, and to answer any and all questions our sub-contractors and the client may have.
We have worked with nearly all of our subcontractors for many years. We take great pride in having an amazing group of subs that we have an excellent relationship with. Our subcontractors are not only fine seasoned craftsmen, but they are helpful, courteous, kind and well liked by everyone! Our subs are ALL people who have worked their way up through the trades and have established businesses just like we have. They are all extremely knowledgeable, and are perfectionists always, just like we are.
Many of our clients request that their projects be completed on a "Cost Plus" basis. We are happy to work in that environment, and without asking, clients are provided with each and every piece of documentation that is generated throughout the development and the completion of their project. They receive every receipt, every invoice, every statement, and weekly itemizations of employee hours.
All clients, whether cost plus or bid, are welcome to discuss project costs with our subcontractors at any time! None of our prices are marked up behind your back, ever. This enables you to ask (for example) the tile guy, "Hey how much could we save if we eliminated that border?", or the electrician, "How much would it be to add two ceiling lights?" Many contractors secretly mark up the bids from their subs and then forbid them to talk price with you, the owner. This transparency is your assurance that this practice will never happen to you.
