The two things that stand out to me are that he is honest and reliable. When he says he is going to show, he shows. He is not a contractor who doesn't show and doesn't call.

The fact that he took the time to dig into the the construction project, he took the time to quiz me about the project and find out what I wanted. He made sure he knew what I wanted in the final product.

Industry Info

If you’re planning to live in your home during a remodel, make sure you’re well-prepared.

Having your home remodeled can be a stressful experience, but living at home during the project can take stress to another level. That’s why it’s a good idea to make all necessary arrangements and mentally prepare yourself before work begins. With organization, preparation and the help of a reliable contractor, living at home during a remodeling project can be more manageable than you expected.

Establish ground rules. Before work begins, sit down with your contractor and address issues such as the earliest and latest working hours, entrances, keys, storage, off-limit areas, bathrooms, and cleanup. Make sure the contractor clearly understands your ground rules and relays them to the crew in advance of the job. By thinking ahead and setting limits beforehand, you can avoid the stress of dealing with these issues one at a time.

Keep essential facilities accessible. One of the most important aspects of living at home during a remodel is having access to your kitchen and bathroom. Most contractors can help you set up a temporary kitchen by transferring basic appliances to a designated area. Plan on using disposable plates and cups for meals, and keep bottled water on hand in case the water needs to be turned off for an extended period of time. In many cases, your contractor will be able to situate the work area so you have continued access to fixtures like the sink and refrigerator.

Maintain realistic expectations. Even if your contractor makes you feel safe and comfortable while your home is being remodeled, sometimes the extent of the project makes this unrealistic. A one-room remodel is usually manageable, but in the case of a massive job like an entire house remodel, temporarily moving out might be a more practical option. In addition to the ongoing noise and inconvenience, a house that’s under major construction may not be a safe environment to live in—depending on the project, your contractor may consider it too much of a liability, not to mention a health hazard.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long will it take to complete my project?
A: It depends on the acquisition of the materials that are going to be installed. For example, if you’re installing new cabinets, you’ll usually have an established delivery date, but sometimes that moves. Once I determine the materials that I’m using on your project, I’ll be able to provide a general time estimate.

Q: Will you provide all the materials for my project?
A: It depends on what you want to use because some materials are subjective. Take tile—you can spend $1 per foot or $40 per foot, so it can be difficult for me to determine what you want and how much you want to spend. If you tell me exactly what you want, I’ll tell you which materials I can provide and which materials you’ll need to purchase yourself.

Q: Do you work with subcontractors?
A: Yes, and every subcontractor I work with is highly professional and reliable.

Q: Will you provide a contract?
A: Yes. Not everybody wants or needs a contract, but those who do get one. I want my clients to be happy with every aspect of my work.

Steve Daniel: Born to Build

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

SACRAMENTO — Raised in the construction trades, Steve Daniel was all but destined to become a builder like his forefathers. “My dad was a contractor and so was my grandfather, so it’s in my blood whether I like it or not,” he laughs. “By the time I was 13, my dad was taking me out on jobs regularly. He worked all the time and always needed help, and who do you think he was going to call to help him? That strapping young man sitting on the couch watching cartoons, that’s who!”

Following high school, Steve attended college, but it wasn’t long before he was back on the construction site. “I went to school with plans to be a chemical engineer, but I got bored with it after a year and a half and went back to work for my dad. In 1981, I got my contractor’s license, and I’ve been building ever since.”

Today, after four decades in the construction industry, Steve says his favorite part of his job is pleasing his clients. “I like to see the customer smile. I enjoy helping people, and it feels good to give someone exactly what they want at a price they can afford.”

A resident of Sacramento (where he lives with his wife, Linda), Steve spends his time outside of work on a variety of pastimes. “I’m an outdoorsman, so I enjoy camping, hunting and fishing,” he details. “As a matter of fact, I was camping just this past weekend at 10,000 feet, on a mountaintop called Mount Patterson.” As far as day-to-day life, Steve enjoys reading, playing cribbage with Linda, and visiting with his children and grandchildren. “Between Linda and I, there are four kids and eight grandchildren, so we like to spend time with them whenever we get the chance.”

Looking back, Steve credits his professional success in part to his father’s instruction and influence. “My dad instilled a strong work ethic in me,” he explains. “He believed it didn’t take eight hours to do a day’s work, so he would do it in six. But he also put quality first. When he taught you something, you’d first learn how to do it right, and then you picked up speed as you got better at it. It was always quality first with him, whether it was a minor job or the overall project, and that’s the same way I approach the job today.”

When asked what he’d do if he were to retire tomorrow, Steve says he’d find ways to keep himself busy. “You always need a game; something to keep you creative and active. If you’re just sitting around and watching TV, you’re not being very creative, and that actually shortens your lifespan. So, the first thing I’d do is start on some of the projects I have around the house. That’s the thing about being a contractor—you’re so busy working on other people’s houses that you never get around to working on your own!”

Ask Me Anything!

Q: What’s your favorite local restaurant?

A: La Rosa Blanca in Sacramento.

Q: If you could take a vacation tomorrow, where would you go?

A: I’d probably go to Washington, D.C. and visit the Smithsonian.

Q: Are you an early bird or a night owl?

A: Both—I’m happy with six hours of sleep.

Q: What types of books do you like?

A: I like good stories where the main character has to overcome the odds and win the day. Some of my favorite authors are Clive Cussler, James Rollins and Steve Berry.

Q: What’s your favorite season?

A: Spring. It’s when things come to life after winter. The trees are the greenest they’re going to be and all the colors are vivid. It’s very invigorating.

  • Having the Right Motivation With Remodeling

    SACRAMENTO — When planning for a home remodeling project, it’s important to reflect on your motivation. Otherwise, you may end up making decisions that you later regret. For example, a lot of homeowners get caught up in following the latest remodeling trends. However, while trends change, functionality always remains the same. You want your new kitchen or bathroom to function well over the next 20 years, so be sure to prioritize function over fashion.

    Another motivational pitfall that some homeowners fall into is becoming overly focused on the reactions of others. They want to “wow” their friends and neighbors, so that becomes the focal point of the remodel. In reality, you should be designing your new kitchen or bathroom for yourself, not for others. If your friends like it, that’s great, but it’s more important that you like it.

  • Maintaining Exterior House Paint

    SACRAMENTO — A lot of homeowners don’t realize the importance of maintaining their exterior house paint. The reality is house paint isn’t just for looks—it actually protects the wood siding and trim from the elements. When house paint isn’t maintained, it often results in the need for costly repairs, including removal of dry rot and replacement of damaged siding boards.

    To avoid the need for repairs, have your house paint touched up on a regular basis—at least every five years. Also, keep an eye out for signs of disrepair. If you notice the paint is starting to peel or looks like it’s deteriorating, it’s time for a new paint job. By staying on top of maintenance and inspecting things on a regular basis, you’ll avoid unnecessary repair costs and keep your home exterior looking beautiful.

  • Video: Why You Should Maintain Your House Paint

    Complete Video Transcription:

    SACRAMENTO — Steve Daniel: What a lot of people don’t realize is that they need to keep the wood on the exterior of their house painted on a somewhat regular basis. Say, around five years. Basically, if your paint’s starting to peel, or look like it’s deteriorating, you need new paint. And the reason for that is it protects the wood. If you don’t take care of the paint, you’re going to be doing a costly wood repair, dry rot, and such, in time. So save yourself some money. Get a paint job. Makes it look nice.

  • Video: Advice for Remodeling

    Complete Video Transcription:

    SACRAMENTO — Steve Daniel: When people are considering remodeling their bathrooms or kitchens, they sometimes think about the trends that are going on rather than the function. You want this to function well for you for the next 20 years. Trends change. So, think about that. Also sometimes, and I find this often happens, sometimes people are thinking more about what their neighbors are going to think about the end product in their kitchen or bathroom. So, if the neighbors come in and go, “Wow, that looks great,” when in reality you should be building it for yourself. If they like it, that’s awesome. But it’s more important that you like it.

We had him do a couple of small household projects, and he did a great job. He communicated very well. I always knew exactly what was going on. One thing I really appreciated was that when I was working from home, they were very respectful. I have a really small house, and they were very deliberately respectful about the small space, no loud noises or radios and no swearing. After two or three days, I thought how nice. I felt that they were very respectful of my space.

The final product was great.
