Houseworks is a San Francisco-based Design + Build remodeling company that serves residential homeowners in San Francisco. The company provides complete renovation services that include concept ideas, budget allocating, design and construction. Houseworks specializes in kitchen and bathroom remodeling, whole home renovations, additions, construction defect investigations, and water intrusion detection and repair.
Houseworks was founded in 2005 by business executive Jeff Kann, who created his company to include the design and construction process under one company. “When design and construction are the responsibility of the same company, cost overruns and schedule delays can be significantly reduced, and a much greater chance of meeting the project requirements and expectations of the homeowner can be achieved,” he says. “When you add in detailed planning, precise project management, clear communication and focused client care to this approach, an environment is created where great craftspeople do their best work and highest-in-class customer satisfaction can be achieved. The fact that the majority of our new projects come from our satisfied repeat client list and client referrals gives us a strong indication that the Design + Build approach is working well.”
Mr. Kann says the company’s experienced professionals are trained to listen to the needs of their clients and respond with creative solutions. He invites potential customers to visit his company’s website, www.houseworksinc.com, to see a complete list of services and a portfolio of past work.
“Build with pride. Build with precision. Build with passion. Build respectful, lasting relationships.”
