5th Generation was terrific to work with. I had my house re-wired, new flooring and paint done throughout my entire house. I tend to have a hard time making decisions, but their guidance really helped me finalize things. I can’t say enough about them. Great family company! Will use again!

I had my entire house remodeled both inside and out and the end-result is beyond what I had imagined. They took my dated 80s stucco house and totally transformed it into a beautiful craftsman. Their architect and interior designer are fantastic! Their team designed it to my budget and really listened to my wants and needs. Inside, they raised our sunken den and took down walls to create a massive open living space with a new kitchen layout. We had the bathrooms and floors all redone as well. 5th Generation was amazing from beginning to end. I will definitely recommend them to my friends and neighbors!

We hired 5th Generation Contracting to renovate the main living space of our home including our kitchen. We were impressed from the initial meeting all the way to the final walk-through. The thoughtful approach to finding out the reasons behind our renovation allowed the design team to make budget conscious suggestions to meet our needs. Our project manager’s daily email updates made sure we were all on the same page and knew exactly what happened each day and what was planned for the rest of the week. We appreciate our project manager’s calm demeanor and patience in answering all of our questions and concerns promptly. The construction quality is of the highest standards and the meticulous finishing is impeccable. We absolutely love the transformation of our living space and kitchen and couldn’t be happier.
