Avi of Greenworks is AMAZING !!! We hired him to remodel our kitchen. As with any remodel there are always bumps in the road. However Avi is clear and concise and made the whole process a pleasure. Even after the remodel  we had a minor issue with a counter light. Avi sent someone to fix it and that was months after final payment !!! You will not be sorry I highly recommend Avi and Greenworks More...

Last November we bought a house that was built in 1951 and still had the original kitchen and (two) bathrooms. After interviewing several contractors, we hired Greenworks to redo all three rooms, and expand the kitchen into what had been a separate dining room. Our contractor was Avi Ben-Shabat and I can't say enough good things about him and his crews. During the proposal/estimate process he told us up front that he wouldn't be the cheapest (though he was close), but told and showed us in easy-to-understand detail what would make his work stand out and be worth any extra expense. He showed us photos of bathrooms and kitchens that were in much worse shape than ours and what he did with them. He was also able to look over our dated rooms and make some very interesting suggestions as to how to improve their layouts and make them more efficient. Another contractor we interviewed (who I won't name here) tried to pressure us into making a decision right then and there, and also tried to dangle an Angie's List discount in front of us but also said he couldn't even apply for that unless we signed a contract with him first. We resented the pressure and guessed the Angie's List thing was a bait-and-switch, and sent him on his way. Avi didn't play those kinds of games. He stressed from the outset that we could take our time making a decision and start the job when we were ready. He also laid out all the costs we would be incurring and when each payment would be due. Even with having to estimate the cost of cabinets and countertops, he was pretty close to what those things ended up costing us. We had an active role in the design process but never felt like he was just going to do what we asked, whether it was a good idea or not, and that's exactly what we wanted in our contractor. He's the pro, not me, and part of his job is to tell me if an idea is bad.He and his crew were friendly and professional the entire time. They took great care to protect the other areas of our house from dust and debris, and cleaned meticulously at the end of each workday. In fact they left our garage cleaner than it was when we moved into the house! Special shout-outs to Gil, Anthony and Julio, all of whom were genuinely great to have around. We actually miss them. Avi has different crews for different jobs - one for demolition, another for tile installation, etc. The only real hiccup in our job was discovering that the pipes under the house were galvanized and although they weren't in urgent need of replacement, we did it because it made sense, with the floors and walls already exposed. We hired a separate plumber for that and he and Avi worked together to coordinate that piece of the work.All the guys did great work, only took days off when the weather prevented them from doing what was scheduled and once when someone had a family emergency. They even worked weekends on occasion to keep us on schedule. We fully trusted them in our home and we'd go out and leave them there to work. We even left town for a week and at the end of each day they'd text us to let us know we could turn our security system back on.Avi was always there with suggestions and thoughts on design, paint colors, etc. He also talked us OUT of things he thought would be more expense than they were worth. "If you do it this way, you'll save $500," etc. We really appreciated that. He never tried to upsell us unless it really made sense, and the biggest add-on (removing two existing windows in the kitchen and replacing them with a single central window), was at my suggestion, not his. He went with us to the home design store and helped us pick out showerheads and all that stuff. We bought the major appliances on our own but always with his input.Avi was on top of every detail. More than once we saw him directing his crew to fix something we wouldn't have even noticed. After the cabinets were installed I noticed that the sink wasn't quite centered under the window - it was off by 3/8". Avi got the cabinet guys to come back and shift the entire section of cabinets 3/8" to get it lined up, and looking at it now you can't tell where or how they did it (though I know).With any job this size there will be a few minor issues after it's done - in our case a couple of cabinet doors with defects and some wood trim that's settled and needs to be recaulked, but overall the job went extremely well - we're really shocked, frankly, that there were no major issues or times work had to be stopped to address some problem. Took a little longer than the initial estimate but that's how these things always are. This was our third reno and hopefully our last. Avi made clear to us that if anything comes up, even if it's two years from now - he'll be here to resolve it. Overall we could not be happier with the decision to use Greenworks for our project and we highly recommend them. More...

I am not one who typically writes reviews, but feel that it is important for anyone who is going to spend money and time on a construction project should be able to get clear facts on what it is like to work with Green Works.We met Avi Ben-Shabbat in February of 2016 when we started the process of deciding who to use and what we wanted to do to remodel our kitchen\dining room and entry area.  Avi showed up with an iPad to show work that Green Works had done, and diligently listened to what we wanted to accomplish. Within a few days, we had an estimate. We did not act on that estimate right away. In fact, we interviewed many other construction company's and took our time researching products and designs. What we found is that Avi was very knowledgeable and quite frankly easy to talk to. It took us almost two years to get proper financing to start the project once we agreed to move forward, regardless, Avi was patient and in no way ever pressured us to start when we were not ready. Note that Green Works did not provide the lowest cost proposal. Avi was honest about the fact they would not be the cheapest, but the quality and service would be worth it. Him and his team were worth every penny.When it was time to start, Avi brought in an incredibly professional crew. They knew we were going to live in the house while construction was going on, so that made a point of making sure the work site was as clean as could be after every day, and were polite and willing to show and discuss the progress of the job. They also kept to the schedule that was outlined.If you take nothing else from this review - understand that last statement. All of the workers were professional and polite, and kept to the schedule. Quality and service, indeed.Avi took great care in making sure that the job was as good as possible. In fact, there was one time after the electrical work had been done, that he did not like the location of switches in the kitchen. He made the electrician change the location, and I was not charged any change order fee. Again, quality and service. I did not like some placement of the recessed lights - Avi had them changed without any big discussion. No construction job ever is completed without complications. Avi managed those with professionalism and in a timely manner. If you are looking for a professional group that understands service, you should definitely call Avi at Green Works. More...

I was fortunate to find Greenworks Construction & Design with a simple Google search.  Their fantastic contractor, David Stein, met with me and we covered every aspect of the project. He was very honest and upfront about time-frame, cost, and the requirements of the job, including potential pitfalls given the age of my property. I shopped around a bit and settled on David and Greenworks. The end result was far beyond what I'd hoped. The project was to convert my garage at my Studio City home (original structure built in 1926) into a legal, modern ADU (accessory dwelling unit).  My intention was to create a studio apartment with a full kitchen, bathroom, and living space that could be rented out. I already had the plans ready to go, but David made some suggestions that vastly improved the original concept.Once the work started I was continuously amazed by the speed and professionalism demonstrated by the work crews led by their incredible foreman Jose Elias, who, like David, always made himself available to me and walked me through every step of the process. My concerns were his concerns.  Because of the age of the building, the City inspectors called for some work that hadn't been planned or budgeted for, and they got the work done at the lowest cost possible to me.I consider myself lucky to have worked with David and Jose and highly recommend them to anyone considering any sort of construction or upgrade.

Best experience! Honest, hardworking, never late, and the list goes on. We couldn't be more pleased with the work that Greenworks did. First, Avi was such a pleasure to work with. He helped us with recommendations to make the remodel look even better than we imagined. We remodeled our front entry, staircase and upstairs bedrooms. When we asked how long it would take to complete, we didn't believe him when he said 2-3 weeks. That is unheard of from our experience. The work was completed in exactly 2 weeks!! The team of workers arrived each morning at the same time and went straight to it. They were kind, respectful and cleaned up their mess at the end of each day. Avi came everyday to bring supplies, check in with us and to make sure all was going well with the team of workers. We have more remodel projects in the future with Greenworks for sure!! Thank you Avi and the Greenworks team!! More...

I had a great experience with Greenworks.  I wish to give a HUGE shout out to my Contractor, AVI BEN-SHABAT, & his crew of professionals @ Greenworks Construction!  I remodeled my kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom, & 2 bathrooms.  Avi remodeled my entire condo to perfection. This was an extremely difficult job logistically, & I was no picnic either!  I am a perfectionist, which would drive anyone to distraction, but not Avi.  He's more of a perfectionist than I am!  I knew in the beginning stages of construction, if something did not look perfect, Avi was the first to recognize the problem & correct the issue.Avi is trustworthy - a true professional who takes pride in his work, maintaining & instilling the highest standards for his crew & himself.  He is a man of integrity.  Avi met & exceeded all my expectations.  He blew my mind!One more thing that amazed me totally;  with Avi, there is always a solution to a problem.  Where other Contractors said a remodeling issue was not possible, I never heard this from Avi!When Avi & his associate, Amir, brainstormed, their talents revealed genius.  They continually astounded me!  I got exactly what I wanted from Greenworks Construction @ a competitive price, leaning on the high end - but you definitely get what you pay for.  The quality of their workmanship & materials are the best...& in the long run it is money saved.They deliver what they promise, cost-wise & time-wise.  Once again, I wish to give a million thank yous to AVI BEN-SHABAT & his incredible crew.  I would get compliments on his crew by my HOA, & this really means something!  As for Avi, a more compassionate, caring & brilliant Contractor you cannot find!Rita Gattegno More...

We were so pleased with the work Avi and his team did for our whole home renovation.  The house we purchased hadn't been updated in 40 years and they did a spectacular job making into a home we love, including a custom staircase rail.  The even accomodated our crazy schedule and had us sleeping in our home before we brought our new baby home.  Amir's attention to detail can't be beat.  Would highly recommend them.  They weren't the cheapest but they definitely did things the right way.

Absolutely the best. We have hired many contractors in the 28 years that we have lived in our Pacific Palisades home, but none have come close to Greenworks Construction and Design in terms of excellence of results, speed, cleanliness and professionalism. Based on many positive reviews, we chose Greenworks to do significant remodeling, including reconfiguration and renovation of our master and guest bathrooms, re-tiling our kitchen, replacing kitchen flooring, repairing and refinishing hardwood floors throughout our two-story house, installation of new ventilation, and more. We lived in the house throughout the job, so cleanliness and timeliness were critically important. Itay Farber—who was in charge of the job for Greenworks—is a knowledgeable, organized, trustworthy and engaging fellow with an excellent eye for design. He efficiently scheduled work to avoid delays, and always responded quickly when we had a comment or question. He has good relations with materials suppliers and was able to obtain significant discounts and quick deliveries. The crew doing the work was also top notch—professional, timely, friendly and just a pleasure to work with. We particularly appreciated the precise tile work. Even demolition was worthy of note, with the Greenworks crew carefully sealing off work areas with plastic like a clean room, and meticulously putting back furniture and cleaning up afterwards. The framed pictures on our walls looked cleaner after the job than before. The entire project was completed on time and on budget, and the results are beautiful. We trust Greenworks and highly recommend them. More...

We first engaged Greenworks through Houzz and they were quick to respond and wanted the job even though it was a small landscaping project. I was pleased to have Itay Farber show up at our doorstep quickly and he has been a joy to work with ever since. Itay is very professional, a great communicator and manages expectations well. He pays attention to details and has delivered on many occasions with deadlines and only the best of service and quality products. We continued to expand the scope of our home improvement projects and Itay has also remodeled our kitchen, adding a beautiful kitchen counter and also made recommendations to his connections to include a new french door. We will continue to engage his service on more projects for the house. More...

I can't even say how professional, amazing and good Greenworks construction is. Itay was managing the remodeling of my entire condo in Santa Monica. He has great ideas/designs and also, a great listener and a problem solver. There were some issues with the city of Santa Monica permit and Itay helped us all the way through. He is awesome, very detailed and trustworthy. All his subs are very professional and the work they did are commendable and great attention to details (which is very important to us). When my husband and I were on vacation for 3 weeks Itay handled all the work and sent us pictures of the progress. He and his crew were amazing from start to finish. I highly recommend Itay and his crew who help you achieve your dream remodel to reality. More...

We worked with Itay Farber on an upstairs remodel, turning a big open space into separate rooms. We had an excellent experience. Itay had a great eye for design and helped with everything from the initial concept, getting the design approved quickly, construction and all the final touches. He was responsive, trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. Although not the cheapest option, Greenworks was competitive in pricing and we could not be happier with our decision. In the end, Itay delivered on exactly what we wanted at the exact price that was promised. Thank you Greenworks and we look forward working with you again on all our construction needs! More...

I do not know many people who can say they love their contractor at the end of a remodel or construction project. After working with Avi and his team, we can say he was amazing from start to finish - and always had a smile on his face & a problem solving, get it done right attitude.We received about 7 bids with a wide range of estimates on the same set of plans before we decided to work with Greenworks Construction. We felt really good about moving forward with the team when finally pulling the trigger - not because they were the cheapest, but because of the level of expertise and professionalism we saw in our initial meetings when reviewing his work. I can say this was a theme throughout the entire project and not just in our initial conversations.Avi has great relationships in the industry and was able to guide us with confidence through each step of our remodel. Never the cheapest, but always quality. I like to think I have great attention to detail, and it was so nice working with a contractor who was even more precise than I was on certain details of my home.Time is always a concern with remodels, especially when you just want to get back home, and were lucky to stay on track in this area too. Even when we moved back to the house a few weeks before the project was done, the crew was very respectful and understanding. Also, it is worth noting we have 2 small children under the age of 3 - so having Greenworks construction work with us and around us in the final weeks of the project was a huge plus. I knew this was a risky move with the kids, but it all worked out a seamlessly as possible given the circumstance. There is no place like home, even when it is still under construction!At the end of they day we are in love with how everything turned out, and I would recommend Avi and this A team to anyone looking for a smooth experience. He stands by his work, and down to the very last detail he has made sure we are happy. More...

I cannot say enough good things about Avi & his team.   I cold called the company after reading good reviews and I was freaked out about it because I had just come off a bad experience with a dubious contractor.   Avi was the opposite.   Awesome, trustworthy, detailed, fun, caring, to name a few of his qualities.   He stayed on budget and didn't come up with "fake" overages like so many contractors do.  I paid exactly what I expected and i am thrilled with the result.   My kitchen is awesome.  He transformed a 1990s kitchen to the centerpiece of the whole house.  I trust him implicitly, I would hire him over and over again, and I would never recommend another contractor but him.       As a side note- doing your kitchen is scary.     He set up a little temp kitchen in my house and moved the fridge, so it wasn't as bad as i had hoped, but if you are going to do a kitchen, try to plan at least a week of it during a vacation or  when you can lean on a friend.  Its hard being without a kitchen, and Avi and his team did everything in their power to make us as comfortable as possible.    He moved my fridge, but up temporary plastic walls so it wouldn't get dusty, and did 110% percent.  He's the best.  Look no further.

This project had two parts:1. A complete remodel of master bathroom and kids' bathroom with high-end materials (fixtures, fitting and tile) supplied by us. The construction was based on detailed design drawings by homeowner's designer supplied at the beginning of the project, and modified by Greenworks' recommended architect. 2. Application of smooth stucco on front facade of home. Applied over existing stucco in some areas; removed rock facade around garage door and replacement with new smooth stucco.Positives: Skilled in-house crew (Shlomi and Rico) with a broad range of expertise. Tile work, drywall, paint and baseboard workmanship were all excellent. Custom cabinetry work by subcontractor was superlative. The texture of the stucco is smooth. Negatives: While the project began on time with ample communication, there were delays as well as disconnect/confusion with project manager (Tomer) despite detailed contract and conversations. Areas of confusion included: cost of additional drawings (on top of detailed base drawings prepared by our designer), added cost for cabinets (claimed that "custom" wood cabinets in three places was a typo), framing needs for stucco under roof eaves, stucco color and intensity, marble - undesirable seam on shower apron (but replaced at owner's request),  very tight faucet cutout placement, and wrong backsplash height (offered to fix but I did not want to waste more of my material on the re-do), steamhead installation (wrongly placed on bench against manufacturer directions but eventually moved after much strife), infrequent clean-up (over a four-month period - initial estimate was 6 weeks) until near final. While at times helpful and polite, the tone was unfortunately mostly defensive, belligerent and surprisingly confrontational and rude when addressing customer questions and concerns. This pattern of interactions has made the entire experience extremely stressful and unpleasant, and very unlike our experience with other reputable and licensed contractors on bigger projects.Overall: Crew members doing the work are professionals, made corrections where project manager agreed. This would have been a far smoother process with better project management. Insist that every single detail be in writing (no matter how small) - memories are short! Demand weekly project targets and checklists for on-time completion. More...

We have a small bathroom in vintage 1920s home that needed to be gutted and re-plumbed with new fixtures, tile work and lighting. We were incredibly pleased with Avi and Greenworks Construction.Avi was responsive, thorough, creative in ideas, and fun to work with. He respected our design sense but also had good suggestions in design/fixing older homes. His crew was honest and industrious and showed up on time every day (there was never a no-show day.). The entire job was done in four weeks. We will definitely use Greenworks again for our next project. More...

David.s and his team are top notch. David.s was attentive through the entire process and finished the work quickly and efficiently. Upon final review, he wasn't happy that he hadn't included the tile removal for our demo and decided to call his guys back in to remove the tile as well as a courtesy since we were planning to do it ourselves but he offered to handle it outright. Our project was small compared to their usual projects but they never treated us like we were secondary. We plan on working with them in future, bigger projects! More...

I chose Greenworks after reading the reviews. Best decision I ever made. I was assigned David as my project manager and he couldn't have been more attentive and most importantly, he worked with my budget. He worked with me every step of the way by meeting and communicating with me daily around my work schedule. Greenworks has provided me with the home of my dreams which was above and beyond my expectations. Thank you David....I'm so grateful. More...

After waking up to a flooded kitchen, we had no choice but to rebuild the entire front part of the house. We really wanted to redesign and re-do the kitchen completely. With all the new ideas and designs out now, we were completely confused. To our good fortune, Avi Ben Shabat from Green Works Construction came and completely redesigned our complete kitchen and front of the house.   From the tile to the cabinets to the countertop!  The only thing that there is to say is WOW WOW WOW!  After waiting for 20 years, my dream kitchen is a reality. I highly recommend Avi and his crew of Green Works Construction!!!  Everything that was promised was done and above More...

As first time renovators, we had heard a lot of stories about how they can go bad. Fortunately for us, we chose David at a Greenworks construction. Our project was extensive as we took down load bearing walls, redid the kitchen ground up, upgraded a bathroom and had a leak that required ripping up half the floor in our den. From quote to final walk thru, David and his crew were professional, kept a clean work environment (the cleanest ever according to our experienced interior designer), and delivered quality work while keeping to our budget. The best part of the experience for me and my husband was that David was great to work with. He was up front about issues, accessible, pushed to meet our specs and worked well with our interior designer (even when they had differences of opinion). He also gave us a hard time (in a good way) as we are new homeowners and clearly needed some help in learning how to care for our new home. While no renovation is easy, the final outcome was better than we expected and certainly makes this home our own. When we do our next project, we will definitely use David and Greenworks team.

My experience with Green Works was a pleasure.Start with the amazing customer service I've received from Sean (my project manager) continue with the very professional and efficient work they have done here : 1-engineered wood installation.2-exterior cool wall painting.3-windows replacement.They came in time and finished in time, they charged me a decent price compared to 3 other quotes I got from different companies..when it comes to construction I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Green Works Construction & Design.

I promised to update my review once my renovation was complete. The 4 stars is for the fact that it's over and the result is pretty enough. However, I want to give honest feedback to help other yelpers in their GC search.1. They are not designers. They can generally layout a standard kitchen build, but do not expect it to be revolutionary or well thought out. Please get an architect or interior designer to help streamline the designing and building process. I had a relatively tricky layout. All of which I communicated in advance - and in the end, I still got the wrong color for the base cabinets, poor planning in a trouble corner - which left a large gap between the counter and the stove, and now loss of drawer use due to the "planning & design" aspect, random tubes coming out of a makeshift cut hole in the counter, a washer and dryer that is trapped in a cabinet, a fridge door that doesn't open beyond 90 degrees... just small things that are really annoying and could have been avoided with real planning and design. I would recommend that all consumer double and triple check their planning facts. I had hoped Greenworks would be able to advise accordinly being more experienced, but unfortunately, that was not what happened. From my experience, it seemed they didn't know certain needs/aspect to produce the desired outcome. Some of the aspects ended up needing to be jerry rigged... so definitely get someone to help you be the middle person. It will save you frustration and sadness.2. Cleanliness.Clean enough as the floors were properly covered etc. But some of their subs were not as thoughtful. I had arrived once to find a pile of chicken bones stacked on my window sill - as well as food and coffee stains on the underneath of my cabinets (that were apparently used as tables). After the cabinets had been installed and my unit cleaned, I found layers of dust and the very same stains still living under the cabinets.3. Attention to Detail.I would pay very close attention to the detail as they build. My kitchen, bath and laundry set up are beautiful (on the outside), but I am curious about what's behind the face. We have found shims still in place visible behind cabinets, the tub was not sealed/caulked, and now water pools on the ledge of the tub and corners. Not sure if that is normal. I don't feel like it is. Perhaps proper mounting didn't happen? I've found knicks and cuts randomly - so that's just lack of care/attention - however, anything that seems odd or out of place, David has mostly fixed. He was very apt to ensure my happiness with the final product.4. Knowlege and TimelineLike other reviewers, I recommend clearly writing in advance the expectations for the build. Many things were said verbally and then not remembered. I am a very thorough person and I ask a lot of questions. There were a lot of questions that were unanswered that later created more problems. I feel this is either due to gap in knowlege or effort to move build forward without hold ups (maybe even to harbor secrets? I don't know). Sadly, my 4-6 week renovation took around 6 months. They will say that it was due to my absense etc. But early on in the renovation, I had arrived at least 6 times expecting people to working on my unit, only to arrive to find it empty. Had they been working, perhaps the build would have been finished. My absenses were pre-planned and never should have been a factor in their ability to deliver in the timeframe quoted. Also, my build required permits, all of which were obtained by their in-house person -- however, that person neither holds an electrical or plumbing license, so in the end, I still have some questions about how they were able to obtain what was needed not having a tradesperson go to obtain the permit. Hopefully everything is ok. 5. ServiceHere is where David gets big points. He did his best to appease me and sort everything I wanted. He even went above and beyond helping me with minor things here and there that were not written in the scope. So I really appreciated that. This may also be why his initial quote was 20K more than 2 other quotes I had received. He cares, maybe more than other companies - so there's that.All in all, a solid company that aims to provide great care and consistency which I think is really valuable. All the other stuff that happened -- you'll have to decide if it's worth it to you.Good luck! More...

These guys are single-handedly reversing everything bad you ever thought about contractors. Itay Farber showed up on time for every appointment, completed the design and draft contract within a week, sent a stellar crew--Sabino was "El Jefe"-- for the work (remodel of backyard) with a bias towards quality, and completed the work earlier than they had estimated. I will use them forever!

We needed to remodel our Kitchen and main level flooring. Our friend suggested we speak with the team at Green Works Construction and Design. After speaking with numerous contractors it was a breath of fresh air to meet with Omri and his team at Green Works. They gave us great direction and suggestions with our remodel and we could not be happier. We are extremely picky and to sum things up, they exceeded all expectations with the finished product. Everyday our project was moving forward and his team was extremely friendly and hard working. Unlike previous experiences we were not wondering if someone would show up today to work. The Green Works Team was on top of of our project and we can't thank them enough. I highly recommend them, you will not be disappointed!!! More...

We hired Greenworks to do a full downstairs remodel, including the kitchen. There were a number of obstacles that needed to be overcome (such as moving the location of the sink) which they were able to make happen without any problems. Our contractor David went above and beyond, coming in on time and and on budget from the estimate we were given at the beginning of the renovation. Highly recommended for any home projects, big or small. Their crews were all professional and courteous. We have a number of projects left to do around the house in the coming months and years, and we will be using Greenworks and David for all of them. More...

Doing a complete home remodel was something me and my wife had thought about but wasn't sure if we can handle it given so many horror stories other homeowners have experienced.  We were going for a modern contemporary minimalist home and don't know of any contractor that could perform and deliver what we wanted.  Extensive research and planning led us to meet and receive bids from 4 general contractors.   Choosing Greenworks Construction was our best decision ever even though they came mid-range on their contract price.  We've seen their projects online and was even given tours on actual homes they have done, which were remarkable.  In addition, we couldn't have asked for a better project manager to handle our home renovation. Our project manager, Itay Farber was very professional, diligent, thorough, and was always available.  Without him, our home renovation would have not been as pleasant and stress free. There were bumps here and there but nothing that Itay cannot handle and fix. Family and friends are surprised from what the house looks like now vs what it was before.  Really a home makeover!! Overall, we are very happy, satisfied, and will highly recommend GW for quality work and a job well done. More...

We signed a contract with Greenworks for a major garage remodel but had a change of heart before construction got underway because the Culver City code demanded two-car covered parking that we were ultimately unwilling to add to the property. We stopped work on the project even though Tomer had already ordered the windows and put in significant time on the plans and engineering. Our final price for the company's efforts to that point was fair. We appreciate their understanding about our cold feet. More...

GREENWORKS IS AMAZING. I had my house remodeled with Greenworks construction and I am very happy with the results. I worked with Omri on that project and he helped me through the whole process: design, details, fixtures, choice of tiles, space design. Everything went very smooth. I had the whole house remodeled and it is exactly how I had pictured it. Greenworks made my dreams come true. The crew are very professional and fast. Great people! It was a very big project but I am amazed by the work they performed. My house is now very open and modern, exactly what it needed. Greenworks is on the high price but quality comes with price. I called a few contractors before making my choice and Greenworks won by far on design, quality, time frame, etc. He even let me see some of his current projects so that I could check on the actual work they were doing. I was very impressed. I will definitely use them again. Thanks Omri and thanks Greenworks! More...

We did our kitchen remodeling with GreenWorks Construction & Design. Before signing with them, we spoke and checked another two contractors with very good reviews as well. We decided to go ahead with this company because when we met Itay (the project manager), his knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience in his previous remodeling projects did match our ideas. And their price was very competitive. The project included: wall removal between kitchen and dining room, the entire kitchen demolition, the entire kitchen/laundry/bathroom re-design, replacement of existing flooring in the kitchen & dining room and electrical panel upgrade.

Itay spent a lot of time with us especially during the first stages of the design, he worked with our ideas and offered several suggestions to improve the project and to keep it within budget, without affecting the quality. He referred us to several suppliers that they have been working with, which made our life easier. He accompanied us to different stores to pick out fixtures and appliances and made great suggestions. We are very happy with the top quality of all the supplies he helped us select. Itay followed up and oversaw step by step the remodeling to satisfy our requests. He was always available in case we had a question or to offer very useful advice. He did a great job and most importantly, he could keep it within budget!

The crew was great! Several sub-contractors involved and all of them very knowledgeable, professional, courteous and trustworthy. Particularly Adar and his guy Israel, they were always available to answer any questions or concerns we might have had. They always solved any problem that came up during the remodeling and they made sure to clean-up after each day of work.

In conclusion, excellent results and a great crew! We absolutely love our new kitchen!!! Greenworks cares immensely about customer satisfaction! Thank you, Itay!

The team at Greenworks Construction & Design (Tomer was my main contact) are incredibly passionate about their work and very professional. They came to the table with amazing ideas that complimented what we were thinking and were honest with their opinions when they thought they might have a better idea. That was very appreciated. There were no hidden additional costs once the contract was signed and all of the work was done by their crew (no sub-contractors!). We even had a pipe burst at 1:30am on a Friday night and Tomer came over as soon as he got the message to help fix the problem and covered all costs from the incident. I can't recommend them enough!

We LOVE this company, and we LOVE working with David Ross.  David and his crew are professional, personable, reliable, and really take care of you.  My father is elderly and could not take care of his house anymore, so I have had to do things in his stead.  My father's home needed an update, being stuck in the late 1970s/early 1980s, and we were fighting the insurance company to get them to pay for a leak that had sprung in the walls, flooding the house and causing mold to grow on the wall.  We had to remove the popcorn ceiling, remove wallpaper that had been there for decades and resurface all the walls in the house, fix several leaks (which we found after the work started), get rid of mold, put in new flooring throughout the house, install new countertops/sinks/faucets for all 4 bathrooms, install new cabinets/countertop/appliances for the kitchen, put in recessed lighting throughout the house, etc.  It was not a small job!  We love David's crew so much that we also asked them to stay and install landscaping and an irrigation system for the yard.My cousin recommended David and his crew because she had worked with David on several projects and thought they did great work.  I live 2 hours away from my father's home and could not be there on a whim to check up on things.  David took care of all the details and kept me informed for the entire project which lasted 6 months from start to finish.  He even made recommendations which saved us money and did little odds and ends at the house for me just because he was at the house.David does what he says he will do.  He does it with a smile, and he does it right.  He's unlike most contractors I've heard about or dealt with, truly a gem.  No, they are not the cheapest (which you would not want anyways), but they certainly are not the most expensive.  I found them to be reasonable, ethical, and honest.My only regret is that our project is done, and we will not be working with them anymore.  If I had another house to work on, I would definitely call David and his crew.  Wish they worked on homes two hours away from the Los Angeles area.  I would call him in a heartbeat.  Truly exemplary!  Call David Ross (818-919-0500).  You will not regret it!David:  Thank you so very much for the amazing transformation you took charge of at my father's home.  The results are just beautiful.  You gave back the dignity so due at my father's home.  Thank you for giving us peace of mind and for being so responsible and reliable in our time of need.  We cannot say enough good about you and will always recommend you when people ask for a contractor.  Truly, truly grateful!  Thank you!

So many good things to say about this company I don't know where to start. Our project manager Tom was awesome. A real creative guy. He was so patient with my husband, who I might add, is a really indecisive person. He offered up some really cool ideas for our garage conversion and after my husband decided he didn't like the paint color of the walls Tom re-did them labor free of charge. The best part was not having to come home to dust and debris everywhere after a long days work. Tom's crew was very clean and respectful. Tom was always available, night and day, whenever we needed him which made the entire process more comforting. Our neighbors who recently had their kitchen done had some horrible stories about the contractor they hired so I was skeptical at first. After my experience, I can honestly say that I couldn't imagine the project going any smoother than it did, and the finished product being any more beautiful than it is. Great team you will not be disappointed. I would recommend Green Works Construction to everyone. More...

Most of all my bathroom looks beautiful!Avi was inspecting the job every day.The crew is very polite, hard workers and very clean.They were late once or twice but that can be forgiven with the quality of work they preformed.I will Definitely use them again!

How lucky we were to have found Avi Ben-Shabat and his crew over at GreenWorks. We were looking to build a master bedroom, bathroom and an outdoor deck- in our budget and quickly! Avi worked as the project manager and from the beginning he was always available and took the time to meet with us several times to go over the design- helping my husband and I come to a happy compromise on what both of us wanted. He was very honest with us about our budget and what he could do within that price so there were no additional costs during the construction. Once the plans were approved, I cannot say enough positive things about Avi's hands on approach (visiting the house atleast every other day if not every day) to make sure things were on track. This was our first remodel and so we had a lot of questions and Avi was always available via phone, text or email. He never made us feel as though we were asking too many questions. As with any major remodel, there were things that came up that we were not expecting, but Avi would speak with us about them and we would come up with a solution that kept us within our budget and the price he quoted us. At the time of construction, my children were 3 years and 5 months old and being summer time my son would come home from school and want to run around in the backyard- where the construction was taking place. I felt very comfortable letting him do this because Avi's crew always cleaned up extremely well at the end of the day and would even put up yellow caution tape around the area so my son knew not to go near it. They were always very professional, very pleasant to have in the house and were very nice to my kids. Avi and his crew were not only great to work with, but they are hard workers and they completed our remodel months earlier than what was quoted to us! What a wonderful surprise!! My neighbors would comment to me all the time how fast the crew was working- and how impressed they were with how everything was looking and looks now.Anyone who needs a general contractor that is honest, does top notch work, stays within your budget and is a good, hardworking person, do not look any further than Avi and his crew. My husband and I love our new addition and outdoor deck and are very happy we found him and look forward to working with him again! More...

We just completed a kitchen remodel in our late 70's ranch style house with Avi and Green Works and are extremely pleased. Avi's expertise and customer service turned what could have been a very stressful endeavor into a very pleasant experience. From start to finish, Avi provided clear expectations and guided us through each decision and step in the project in a very professional and courteous way. The work crews were very competent, professional, and friendly. The attention to detail paid by Avi and the work crews exceeded our expectations. We consistently received excellent results, service, and responsiveness. Throughout the project, the mess was well contained and we always felt that the work crews had our best interest in mind.

We will definately be using Avi for future home improvements. Avi came as a recommendation from friends and we will be very happy to recommend him to others. Thank you Avi!

Kudo's to Green Works and especially Avi.  When we started a bathroom remodel we did not know what or how to go about it.  Avi was there every step of the way.  He asked the questions to help us think and decide what was the most important to us.  He provided input about what worked and what did not work.  The designs he created were complete and allowed us to make educated decisions.  During the work he has been responsive, flexible, patient and thorough.  All work was done in a clean and timely manner.  If something was not correct Avi was on it and it got fixed.  I can't say enough good things about the way he handled the job.  We are currently in a second contract with Green Works and Avi.  We look forward to a continuing relations with Green Works and Avi.

Do not hesitate to hire this company. They have the ability to take care of anything that comes up during your remodel. Avi and his crew just finished our kitchen remodel, which included extending an outside wall to add more space. They are very professional, always on time, and clean their work area at the end of each day. They worked on our job six days a week, which was important to us, and made the job go faster. Avi took us shopping for appliances, granite, and tile, which allowed us to receive his discount on those items. Our job included custom cabinets (the cabinet maker is truly an artist), hardwood floors through the entire house, granite, tile, new window, French doors, and all new appliances. When they discovered, that we had to move a sewer line, and replace termite ruined beams in the kitchen ceiling, the work was done immediately and professionally. There is nothing that they can't do! All of our work was permitted in Burbank, and always passed on the first day. We are already planning our next project with Avi. More...

We could not be happier! Our kitchen remodel is everything we hoped for. The job included extending an outside wall to add more space. Avi and his crew were on the job every day including Saturdays. This is a professional company with the ability to handle anything that comes up. They are always on time, and leave a clean work space at the end of the day. Our job included new appliances, custom cabinets, tile, granite, hard wood floors through out the entire house, new lighting, and new French doors and a new kitchen window. The job took 10 weeks, and that included a new sewer line, and removing/replacing termite damaged beams in the kitchen ceiling. We are already planning on hiring Avi to do another project for us in the near future. All work was permitted by Burbank, and always passed the first time around. More...

I'll start by thanking David and his crew from Greens Works - they were absolutely great.My house was a standard 1970 home and we decided to renovate it and give it a modern look. The house really needed a change so considered expanding the house by removing and adding walls as well upgrading plumbing and electricals. We were thinking about getting a few estimates so we researched online and came across Green Works. They also had very good reviews on Angie's list and Houzz so we scheduled them to come out.David came out and met with us. David gave us a few ideas that were very efficient accomplished the modern style that we were aiming for without leaving anything behind. From that point on I knew that David will be the one to do the work. We decided to hire David without calling anyone else, we felt very comfortable to go with David because he was straight forward from day one.The project involved improvements all around the house: kitchen, two bathrooms, flooring, plumbing, electrical, windows, landscape. Almost everything was new. I was impressed to see how David's team accomplished so much work and managed to stay on schedule. David did a great job at making sure the job site remained clean. He was available all the time and made sure to give us a breakdown of each day's schedule.  David addressed every issue that came up right away - which was very important to us. I definitely recommend these guys; they know what they're doing.Once again, thank you David & Green Works! More...

First and for most I would like to thank Green works and David the project manager for a beautiful job and a fantastic experience.
I decided to remodel my kitchen in my 90’s home, I researched some companies online and decided to call a few.
One of the companies were Green works and David was the project manager .He came out and gave me a professional quote, he was very knowledgeable with the work and the city codes.
Once we started talking I realized that I have a bunch of ideas but wasn’t sure if there relevant, David explained witch idea was better or witch is more cost effective.
After talking a little bit we decided to knock off a wall and to create a nice island with a overhang, David designed the new layout on a 3D design and then everything looked awesome.
After a couple of days they pulled the permit and we were ready to go, the demolishing was quick and very clean. like David promised he was there every step of the way and in every important decision making .The whole process was done in a timely manner and on schedule , David in he’s crew were here every day and everything from A-Z.
Honestly couldn’t ask for a better job-company-project manager.
Thank you so much David and green works.

I finished my remodel with Greenworks a couple months ago and I am so happy that I chose them. I interviewed a few contractors but ultimately decided Greenworks was the best fit for me. Specifically, I worked with Itay and he and his team were amazing. Itay was always accessible by phone/text and made sure the whole process went smoothly, including inspections, deliveries, and especially the detail work. They were able to tackle any issues that came up, as they tend to with renovations, and produced a beautiful product that I'm truly happy with. I will be using them again. More...

When we finally decided to remodel our 1950's bathroom, we interviewed several local contractors and decided on Greenworks because we liked their portfolio, timeline and price.  They came through on every aspect of the project leaving us with the sleek, modern bathroom we wanted, ahead of schedule and right on budget.  Our project manager, Itay, worked through the bumps that come with a large project like this, advised on design decisions and was always available for questions, re-works, etc.  Salvador and David led the construction team and did meticulous work from the ground up.  The guys were always on time, friendly and tidy with their daily clean up. We are very happy with our new bathroom.  If you are considering a construction job, large or small, call them! More...

My husband and I hired Omri and Avi of GREENWORKS to help completely renovate our soft modern/ midcentury two-story home. We redid the hardwood floors, completely demo'd the kitchen and master bath, and made tweaks to almost every room, including electrical, windows and structural updates along the way. It was a major process from start to finish and these guys were awesome, confident, thorough and attentive when things needed attention. Omri is a true professional and demonstrates a knowledge that transcends construction and into home design and decor. We have really enjoyed the creative collaboration process with this team. They are talented pros -- as well as good, honest people. Highly recommend! More...

We recently purchased a home and needed a bunch of work done to the plumbing and all around the house. What attracted us to Itay and his team was his attention to detail, honesty in assessing things, and accessibility via phone/email/text. He told us he would take care of us and he certainly has. Along the way, he was really mindful of our budget and helped us find ways to save without compromising on quality. He would respectfully give us the pros and cons behind each decision we needed to make. The company does accept credit cards, though there is a 2-3% financing charge. I've been told they're working on electronic forms of payment (i.e. paypal) but it's not available currently. They are also pretty flexible in terms of timing payments and seem willing to work with you. They also offer financing.The main way Itay communicated with me was through text and an almost-daily phone call. It was a pleasure working with Itay-- it gave me peace of mind that he is proactive and communicative. My husband and I work full time so we needed someone who would be on top of things.The team specializes in remodels and making things look awesome. We asked them to do mainly repairs and replacements for the core systems of our house (sewer, piping). We will reach out to them first when we're ready to remodel. More...

We had a fabulous experience with Itay Farber from Green Works.  In fact we keep thinking of reasons to bring him back for more projects because he does excellent work and he has become a friend.  I attempted to post "Before" and "After" photos on the Green Works yelp page, but I am not the most tech-savvy person, so I'm not sure if they saved correctly.On to the review...When we met Itay he was very empathetic and encouraging while I lamented the sad state of our condo bathrooms.  While I was somewhat skeptical, he was energized by the challenge.  I wasn't sure what we could realistically do with the small spaces, and I wistfully said to my husband and Itay that I wished that the master bath could be like a "Scandinavian sauna," one that would my oasis.  He instantly understood what I meant.  We looked at pictures of projects he was currently working on, pictures from Pintrest and Houzz and came to an agreement on style.  Itay helped my husband and I chose our fixtures and tile at various show rooms.  He encouraged us to take risks on a few of the elements and it worked out beautifully for us.  The project started quickly, with no lapses.  Itay and his tile expert Rigo are definitely both type A personalities, which I appreciate.  I saw Rigo hand-sawing bathroom tile to make every piece fit beautifully.I honestly knew what I wanted but didn't quite think it was possible.  Itay, Rigo and the Greenworks team are the best.  Oh, and I have my Scandinavian sauna now.  :) More...

I have been in my house for ten years now, slowly I've fixed things here and there like the garage, the roof and so on, however with this decade anniversary coming up I really wanted to give the house a different life.There were a lot of things that weren't working properly, but for a loooong time I've put this off out of fear, I know remodeling costs a pretty penny and you just hear so many horror stories of people who will take your money and run, literally not call you back or whatever.In prepping for this remodel I interviewed quite a few professionals and saw a lot of people whom I've liked but in the end I had a wish list of what I was looking for in this person that was going to take over my house for the next few months.Itay Farber was the guy I ultimately chose and I could not have been happier with my decision.We had so many things to do that our budget was really tight but I didn't want to have some parts of the house look great and the others not so much, Itay was AMAZING in giving me the right advice on what to do where and how to make better use of our money, he worked with us to get great prices on materials as well as brought a very top notch team to work on the house. All of his teams were extremely friendly, trust worthy,  knowledgeable people, they had the house for about 3 months and really became our friends rather than just people who were working for us. They were so fast and detail oriented I never had to ask for anything twice and Itay was THE BEST contractor I've ever even heard of, he was available at all times, called me on a daily basis to go over all details and overall the whole project went very smooth.Now we have a house that we love and are proud of, we are extremely comfortable and if you are thinking of remodeling do yourself a favor, call Itay, ask him to bring you Manoel's team, seat back and relax and you will be very very pleased with the result.This was the most well spent money of my adult life :D More...

Researched Green Works and met with Itay Farber, Project Manager, to receive a quote for a Master Bath project. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in answering all our questions, gave us a reasonable quote which met our budget and we hired him on the spot. Excellent crew, very respectful of our needs. Project was finished on time and on budget, and three weeks later we called Itay back to do two additional bathrooms. So when we decided to put in hardwood flooring Itay at Green Works was my first and only call. He is always reachable and makes it a point to meet with the crew to make sure everyone is on the same page. More...

Wow, where to start!? From the first time I met Avi, I could tell he was an honest person because he actually brought up the idea of purchasing IKEA kitchen cabinetry, which I had good experience with in the past, as a cost effective alternative before I did, instead of trying to up-sell me for "custom Italian cabinetry" or an in-house cabinet maker, which he would have profited from.  I had always been scoffed at by other GC's for even contemplating it.  So, from that moment on I had a feeling I had found "my guy".  In fact, after finding them on Angie's List with an A+ rating and other service awards, they were the only quote I ever got and the only company I ever interviewed/met with. I am familiar with residential construction costs having previously having homes remodelled, as well as overseeing construction projects at my job, and upon the intial quote for just the kitchen remodel, I knew that it was a reasonable quote.This project was extensive.  We took the house from a mid-eighties Spanish ranch style to modern/contemporary.  Moving walls and opening up the kitchen/living room/dining area into one large space, new kitchen, adding a 16 foot pocket door, entire flooring, recessed lighting, every single interior and exterior door & window replaced, new electrical panel, interior and exterior painting, two tankless water heaters, exterior hard/landscaping and lighting, FIVE (!) bathroom remodels, fireplaces, new garage doors, re-stucco of entire exterior, outside hardscape and landscape, etc. etc.  You name it, other than the roof and AC, it was replaced. Avi's crew was courteous and professional, always came when they said they would, and left the workplace clean and organized. They also mitigated dust and noise as best they could. We started on May 14th (the day after my birthday) and finished Nov 23rd (the day before Thanksgiving, so easy dates for me to remember). They usually worked 6 days a week, sometimes even 7, to get it done quickly, as we continued to live in the house during the remodel.  We have two small children, so time was of the essence for us.   For such an extensive project, just over 6 months was extremely fast.Of course small issues arose during the remodel and after, as is to be expected for a project so large, but Avi was always reasonable and timely in addressing them. The owner, Omri (aka Mike) would stop by occasionally to see how the project was going and gave a couple great design tips. Can't say enough good things about Greenworks or Avi.pics here:  houzz.com/projects/14759… More...

When we bought our ranch style home a few years ago we had a vision of exactly what we wanted our home to look like, but had a lot to do so we needed to find just the right company to help us bring our dream to reality. In our first meeting with the owner Omri, he took his time to answer any questions we had and explained everything. I am so glad we chose Omri and his team because thanks to Greenworks our vision became a dream come true. We were going from Ranch to Contemporary, room addition full master bed and bath, full kitchen remodel including knocking down walls, fireplace remodel and updated the whole house from top to bottom. We also lived in our home with 3 children while going through construction and Greenworks made sure that every step of the way we were comfortable and the house was clean at the end of each working day. Omri and Shlomie were always available and the whole team went above and beyond! They helped with everything from budget, picking out appliances and ideas and suggestions. My husband and I were very particular with how we wanted things and Greenworks made sure everything always exceeded our expectations. Our full remodel took about 6 months, and I could not be happier with how everything has turned out. I am so happy we made the decision to choose Omri and his team, we love being in, what feels like our new home! Thank you so much for everything! More...

The thing that most impressed me working with you was that you did everything you said you would, you did it in a timely manner and with 100% satisfaction. I had put off the very necessary process of updating my kitchen and bath for years, hating the thought of the mess and the disruption. You made everything easy. My only regret was that I didn't do this sooner. I will, recommend you to all of my friends and clients. More...

After my Aunt passed away, I was asked to handle some of the affairs. She had lived in a nice home over in Van Nuys and I had the challenge of getting it "market ready". I googled a home remodel company and Green Works popped up along with a lot of other companies...I called them and they came out to give me an estimate. I was blown away by their professionalism and by the low estimate...I was kind of worried about their work after seeing such a low estimate, but I was completely satisfied and highly recommend them...Their work is superior...

I had an awesome experience with Green Works. I contacted this company to remodel my Grandmother’s master bath. I’ve had experience with contractors in the past up in Northern California, so I knew to expect some bumps in the road. What I really liked about the crew from Green Works was their affordability, open communication, and professionalism on site. They kept me updated with the work, even if just to say that everything is on schedule. I tried not to hover over the guys while they were working, but when I did check in and/or asked questions, I received polite and thorough responses. They kept good attitudes, which made me feel very comfortable with them working in my Grandmother’s home. I would definitely recommend them to others looking for construction or remodeling. More...

Hired Green Works Construction based on reviews and a reference from a coworker. I had them rebuild an old deck in my backyard that had fallen to pieces over ten years. I like they way they worked. I had some concerns about my neighbors in Burbank (they complain a lot about noise and other stuff, life in general I think), so I asked my project manager if, when possible he could keep the noise done to a minimum (okay asking a bit much because rebuilding a deck requires things like hammering), but he did his best and also had sure all the labor stayed away from my neighbors.

And I am very happy with the deck itself. Sturdy construction. The estimate was less than I expected, the work was much better than I had hoped for. Very nice to have a deck to grill out on and its nice to know I have a contractor I can call for future stuff.

I would totally recommend.

I've hired contractors in the past and was very frustrated by the work that was done. With Green Works Construction and Design, Inc., it was different. I hired them to remodel my kitchen.

Master bathroom needed a massive upgrade. It was too small, too dim, just didn’t feel like a master bedroom. I got five estimates. Picked these guys because their estimate was reasonable and the owner was really hands on, attentive to my phone calls. Very happy with the work. I got exactly what I wanted. Oh, bonus is that they offer these 3D consultations. It is pretty cool to watch somebody assemble your bathroom in 3D and say, Hey, so this is what it will look like if you use us. More...

I bought a second, investment property in Los Feliz. The goal was to rent it out, but the kitchen was out of the 1970s, and I knew that wasn’t going to attract the tenants I wanted. I had worked with these guys in a bathroom remodel in my family home, so I called Green Works again. Work was superb and they completed a full kitchen remodel in less than a month. Less than a month after I rented the property. New tenant oohed at the modernist style and the new appliances More...

After our two sons left for college, my wife and I decided to get our kitchen remodeled. It was our “gift to ourselves” sorta thing. I did a lot of research on general contractors online and didn’t really find anyone I liked. My wife asked a couple of our neighbors and one of them very enthusiastically recommended Green Works Construction.

My wife already knew what she wanted, done to the type of blender she wanted to buy. The guys at Green Works put all her magazine clippings, Pinterest photos, and notes into a 3D layout, complete with blueprints.

Construction went basically according to plan. Took a bit longer than estimate because there were a couple of issues with our subflooring, but we’re happy with the results.

My mother recently moved in with me, my husband, and our two kids. She’s 80 and has a couple of mobility problems. For her sake, we decided to add a walk-in tub to one of our bathrooms, along with hand railings and a few other things to make her life easier. We called around and asked some friends. Eventually we were referred to Green Works Construction.

I was really impressed from the start. They knew exactly what we wanted, and they had done quite a few handicapped bathroom remodels before, and they made a few suggestions (adding handholds, taking out certain cabinets for added space) I really liked. Just felt that they worked overtime to get us the kitchen we wanted.

The work was done exactly as planned, and they met their work schedule and budget. Very happy.
