    "Reliable Contractor"

    We hired Frank for our extensive interior remodel of our home. Prior to Frank, we worked with two contractors in a short period of time. Both were nightmare experiences for us. We were wary while looking for contractor number three and Frank was patient with us as we screened him. He saw as through the remodel of our home- which included extensive structural work, new walls, plumbing and electrical. He was always available to us throughout the project for questions and responded to issues in a timely manner. Frank was able to stick to his budget, and the few change orders were given to us promptly when they arose and they made sense. Frank's workers were pleasant and trustworthy and we never had any issues with them either. We would recommend Frank in a heartbeat and plan on contacting him for our future work.

    I highly recommend North South Construction. I have used their services as a contractor for all of our remodelling jobs over the past 8 years. They have remodelled 5 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, 1 closet with custom made shelving, 1 garage storage system; and they have repaired and replaced all of our exterior window frames, painted the exterior of our entire house, installed a new roof; and currently they are building a Pool House for us. Additionally, they have worked with us on repairing or replacing old kitchen ceilings and plumbing when we experienced leaks. They have done a superb job on everything and their pricing is extremely fair. They do a good job of anticipating costs up front, so there are no surprises along the way. They are very professional and friendly to work with; their workmanship is of very high quality, and they are extremely reliable. I am happy to recommend North South Construction for any of your building needs, large or small.

    I was the architect on a project that North South built: an extensive interior remodel with some minor exterior work. Frank and Kieran (and their team) did an incredible job of not only building everything to a high level of quality, but doing it all with a very sympathetic and accessible manner with the owners.

    The project was of a very modern style but set in the context of a fairly traditional suburban home in Los Altos, CA. North South was able to execute a very tightly detailed design that also required a bit of site "design-build". They offered great feedback and ideas, and brought an optimism and creativity to the project that's hard to find.

    Even after having worked with dozens of contractors and having built projects of my own, I think North South are still tops on my list of people to call for high-quality, high-value work. It speaks volumes that the owners are very happy with the project and also recommend Frank to their friends.

    The team from North South helped me with a significant remodel of my Victorian home in San Francisco. They removed a structural wall between my kitchen and living room to create a larger family room, as well as renovating an entire floor to create two new bedrooms with fabulous en suite bathrooms. They also helped manage the relationship with the city planning department.

    They built modern storage cupboards in the dining room to blend into their Victorian surroundings, as well as replicating existing finishes into the lobby.

    I was extremely impressed with the quality of their work, the great sub-contractors they selected and managed, and their follow-up after the project.

BuildZoom combines license information on 3.5 million contractors with 75 million building permits, and over 80,000 reviews from property owners.

If you are looking for a specific contractor and you can’t find them on BuildZoom, it’s likely that they do not have a license - please contact us and we’ll try to help!

Here are some of the rules, regulations, and laws governing contractors in California

Does North South Construction Inc carry a valid contracting license?

In California, any remodeling or construction project that exceeds $500 (labor and materials), requires a contractor to have an active license with the California Contractor State License Board (CSLB).

North South Construction Inc currently holds license 953017 ((B - General Building Contractor)), which was Active when we last checked.

How important is contractor licensing in California?

The CSLB is one of the highest rated licensing boards in the US. Applicants are required to pass a written board exam and prove at least four years of prior, relevant work experience. In addition, the CSLB requires all license holders to maintain at least $2,500 in operating capital and provides you with a range of other consumer protections.

Your liability risk when hiring North South Construction Inc

Contractors in California are required to carry workers' compensation insurance if they have employees and proof of liability insurance with the cumulative limit of $1 million for licensees with five or fewer persons, and an additional 100,000 for each additional member over five, not to exceed $5 million total.

Financial recourse when hiring North South Construction Inc

All licensed contractors in California are required to maintain a bond, which provides you with financial recourse in case they perform defective work or violate license regulations. If you feel as though you have been taken advantage of, you should leave feedback on the BuildZoom's contractor profile and file a complaint with the CSLB.

North South Construction Inc has a $12,500 bond with Wesco Insurance Company .

What else should I know before hiring North South Construction Inc

California contractors are required to submit their fingerprints to the board, which are then checked against criminal records held by the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) prior to obtaining a valid contracting license.

How is the BuildZoom score calculated?

The BuildZoom score is based on a number of factors including the contractor's license status, insurance status, verified work history, standing with local consumer interest groups, verified reviews from other BuildZoom users and self-reported feedback from the contractor.

Why you should hire through BuildZoom

When it comes to major construction work or even minor alterations to your home, hiring the wrong contractor could result in incomplete or defective work. You may even find yourself dealing with huge liability claims. BuildZoom does the homework for you and helps you hire the right contractor.

You should get several bids before hiring a contractor

The California State License Board recommends getting at least three written bids before hiring a contractor. Do not automatically accept the lowest bid - an abnormally low bid may indicate the contractor made a mistake and is not including the same work quoted by their competitors. We've made the bid collection process extremely simple (and free). Just click here to get started.
