I would like to share a customer satisfaction issue that met every expectation…it was perfect. We had Lars provide an extensive remodel circa 2010. We have been very happy with the end product since. Earlier this week, our water heater failed. While troubleshooting with assistance from the heater manufacturer tech support, it came to light that a modification to the venting method done as part of the remodel to vent horizontally out the side of the house with an external exhaust fan is not safe and could no be supported. Hearing that we have been in an unsafe environment as a result of recommendation by the Lars team to address the structural constraints for the venting, I became extremely angry and contacted Lars’ office. Matt, the Lars office manager took my initial and subsequent calls. Matt flawlessly handled the situation being calm and respectful and offering detailed advice on his actions going forward and fulfilled and beyond every commitment. Project manager Owen engaged straightaway along with Lars’ plumbing contractor Gustavo of Calplumb. Additionally, Jason Larson returned my call per my demand. Jason assured me that the situation would be addressed without any pushback. After these reactions by the Lars team, I felt totally comfortable that we were in good hands. As requested, Owen and Gustavo along with his assistant Omar rang my doorbell right at 8:00AM the next morning. After scoping the issue and reviewing options, Owen offered the best solution to replace the water heater with a modern model designed specifically for this application that included a new vent line. Gustavo and Omar proceeded to procure the heater and materials for the installation straightaway. Before the end of the day, we were back up and running with hot water. The installation is beautiful. This situation could not have been handled any better by all involved. The ownership and reaction by Lars was perfect. This reaffirms our decision to select Lars originally. We were told at the time that the warranty is basically forever. I can say without hesitation that this is the case. BRAVO! More...

We truly enjoyed our experience working with Jennifer Cavanaugh with LARS. She is extremely attentive to detail, she listened to every item we discussed from the very beginning and brought creative solutions to our project every step of the way. The first presentation we reviewed was literally our dream house! I would recommend working with her to anyone. Professional, kind, fun to work with, and incredibly creative in her approach to project solutions. More...

My experience working with LARS was fabulous, specifically working with Jennifer Cavanaugh who is genuine, understanding, creative and extremely proactive about her entire approach working with clients. She listened from the very beginning and comes up with solutions that we would have never considered. All around a complete professional and someone we really enjoyed personally getting to know along the way! Truly I can't recommend Jennifer enough, she is a total ROCKSTAR! More...

This is an update to my review. When Lars took on the challenge of converting our 1960's home into our idea of what our forever dream home would look like, from beginning to end, it felt as if we were the only clients they were working with.  The level of professionalism and personal attention provided us by the Lars Remodeling team was remarkable! It was with a heavy heart when we decided to sell our beautiful home. Needing to relocate out of state to be with our children and grandchildren was an emotional but necessary decision.  With all the unknowns of the stability of the  real estate market, we were concerned about the sale of this house being competitive and sellable at its listed value. Our home was listed as "coming soon" and we received an offer above listing price two days after it went online.  We believe that the beauty of our home, designed and remodeled by Lars was what made it stand out above the rest.Throughout the process of packing and getting our home ready for the new owners, there were a few things we had to repair.  Accessing the warranty department by email was very easy. Communication with the Lars office was always handled in a timely, supportive and professional manner; and, any person that represented Lars Remodeling, that came to our home was polite, personable and professional. From the "beginning to the end" Lars has stood by their work and maintained a professional working relationship with us...that's what you pay for and that's what you get. More...

Once again, Lars Remodeling and Design exceeded all of my expectations. Having had such a great experience the first time (early 2000's), when it came time to remodel another home (Kitchen/Living Room), I reached out to them again and again had another great experience. It all started with Jeff B. (Project Consultant) who came out to our home for the initial review of the project. Based on that meeting, a conceptual drawing was completed for us to review at Lars. Jeff consistently followed up to answer any questions I had and was extremely helpful/flexible in this process as my wife and I had changed our mind on a few things during this process. Jeff's knowledge was extremely helpful with getting this project off the ground and into the design phase. Yvette T. (Senior Interior Designer) was exceptionally helpful with the design aspect of the project. Yvette came to our home and spoke with my wife to determine how she utilizes the kitchen so that she could make the best design recommendations for us. This discussion was lengthy and proved extremely useful as our project is not only beautiful, it is more importantly super functional and meets all of our needs. Yvette joined us when making our selections (flooring, cabinets, counters, backsplash, lighting, furniture) and provided us with great recommendations. She was always available to us. Prior to the start of our project, we met Rick M. (Project Manager). Rick was onsite regularly and kept us informed/updated throughout the project. He provided recurring oversight of the onsite trades and the work they performed. We also had a regularly weekly meeting to discuss the project. Rick's exceptional ability to communicate, kept us completely informed of our project throughout the process. In summary, we had a flawless remodel that resulted in a beautiful kitchen/living room that is now incredibly functional. As we have had such a great experience both times using Lars, we will again use Lars in the near future on the bedroom side of our house. Thank you Lars Team. More...

After interviewing multiple design and build firms in the San Diego area, we decided to use Lars Remodeling and Design to build our new master bedroom suite. They also renovated an existing bathroom, brought our garage up to code, and included some other improvements around the house such new lighting and a new front porch. We selected Lars because they offered the most personal and professional touch during our interview process. We were very impressed with the enthusiasm, attention to detail, and patience that Vice President Brandon Spann brought to designing our new space. Walking into our new master is a seamless transition that feels like the room has been part of the house since it was originally built. Being in the new room feels like staying in a resort suite and has exceeded all of our expectations for the space. We did have some issues with some of the work that was done. Our Project Manager, Duane, did a great job of addressing the items and ensuring things were redone until they were correct. It was during this time that I was told something by a friend that really stuck with me for the rest of the project. “When dealing with construction, problems are always going to happen. What matters is how you fix them.” I can confidently say that Lars was willing to do the right thing and make sure the project was completed to our satisfaction. More...

I met with Dan from the company for an at home consultation to discuss several home remodeling projects my husband and I have been considering.  I discussed my budget and the materials and projects with Dan and He was very quick to tell me all the best and most affordable ways to do all the projects. It seemed like the projects we had would be better for us to do on our own and I sincerely appreciated that he told us as much and then went a step further to tell us how to go about it. You could tell he was an honest and respectable person working for an honest and respectable company and that's is exactly what I'm always looking for and part of the good thing about yelp. Even though we did not work together this time Dan's honesty and very clear knowledge when answering our questions (and my husband is a structural engineer) makes me expect that we will be working together in the future!

Lars completed our remodel almost two years ago, did a great job then.  A leak developed under our kitchen sick one Sunday morning recently, and I emailed them to let them know I'd be calling them on Monday.  Before I could look up their phone number on Monday, Owen had already contacted Rick, who called me right away to set up a time to come out and check out the leak.  They came out, figured out what the problem was, and repaired it and the surrounding cabinent as good as new super quickly, keeping me informed about the repairs through the process.  I really appreciate their responsiveness and follow-through!

Jeff Brown, from Lars Remodeling, came to my house for a consult.  He was knowledgeable, professional, and a no pressure kind of guy.  I didn't end up going with this company as my projects were not the type they do but was so pleasantly surprised with the amount of time Mr. Brown spent talking about my project and discussing ideas.  What a top notch guy and company.

I'm so thankful that I called LARS Construction!!  After the recent storms, we had some flooding issues in our living room that needed to be dealt with.  I called LARS for a consultation and Jeff B. was assigned my project. He called the day before our appointment to discuss what I needed done; after our conversation we decided that my project wasn't the best fit for LARS but Jeff didn't hesitate to offer to come out to my home and offer advice.  He was kind, courteous, and had wonderful ideas to help solve our flooding issue.  When we are ready to remodel, LARS will be our first choice!

We had a large bathroom remodel by Lars recently. I was very concerned about the amount of time it would take, but Owen our job superintendent reassured me it would finish on time and he was right even 2 weeks early. All the Lars employees were a pleasure to work with on this project. The design team understood exactly what I wanted and made it happen. The construction crew cleaned up at the end of the day, everyday. There were no "extra" charges as we have had in the past with other contractors. You will be very happy with the whole process with Lars. More...

We couldn't be happier with Lars Remodeling and Design. We bought an 80+ year-old Spanish revival home that was in need of extensive renovations. We started with a local architect and were soon disappointed as the project stalled and expenses soared. Lars stepped in with kindness and compassion and quickly helped us to regroup. The office staff is kind and courteous. Any concern you have will be promptly addressed and taken care of to your satisfaction. Your voice is always heard and your preferences are the number one priority. Yvette Travers, the designer is amazingly talented and so much fun to work with. Mike Hebert was our Project Design Consultant and is a pleasure to know. He led us through every step with confidence and expertise. Jeff Brown was our project manager who is exceptionally knowledgeable and was attentive and communicative throughout the entire process. Matt Regole is an ace at helping to choose your appliances and plumbing fixtures without breaking the bank. From the big picture to the small details, Lars has it covered. You will not be disappointed. Our old house presented many challenges and is now safe, aesthetically beautiful and functional. The final product is spectacular. I would go with Lars again in a heartbeat. More...

We have had numerous experiences with remodeling and we find that Lars Remodeling Company is the best.  We had an older condo extensively remodeled on a tight schedule.  Lars guided us through the entire major remodel process with design, permits, product selection and color selections.  Their help was invaluable.  The project manager, on site manager and designer were outstanding.  Their trades were excellent.   We were able to watch the whole destruction to reconstruction on line with pictures of the whole process.  It was amazing.  Lars was on time and on budget.  We highly recommend Lars for your next remodeling project.They made the whole process enjoyable.

There preferred vendor list and trades make this process and very enjoyable.I would highly recommend using Lars for your whole house project. More...

After interviewing several remodeling companies, my husband and I chose Lars. Lori was our consultant, Yvette was our designer and Dominic was the best contractor ever. This is an awesome team. We stayed on track, on budget and on time. We even got money back. If you go with this company you will feel as if your hand was held the entire time. You will know what to expect each step of the way. More...

LARS did a major remodel of our home almost 5 years ago. Due to all the rain we had the past winter we developed a leak. As the remodel was almost 5 years ago, we no longer had the name of the roofing company that installed the new roof. We called LARS and they took care of the issue immediately. We had the roofing company at our house within a week and they fixed the ridge before the last big rain we had this year. Thanks LARS More...

We've been living in our remodeled home from Lars for almost 7 years now.   We did a FULL house remodel; basically tore the old house down and built a second story.  There were definitely ups and downs during the process.  A labor of love it was, but in the end I learned a lot about construction, and I love my home!From beginning to end, our project manager was with us the entire time, keeping our project on track and built to Lars, and my, quality standards.      Now, 7 years later, our home is still beautiful.  The only issue we've had was with some chipping of the stain on the cabinetry - not completely normal wear and tear.  Jason contacted me right away to take a look.  He agreed and is amazingly going to restore the look of my cabinets.  I am so grateful and thankful to Jason and his company.  Having a company stand by their work after warranty expires is a testament to Lars' commitment to their customer and their business character.  They are truly AMAZING, and I am so thankful we made the right choice by going with Lars.  Thank you Jason!

Having done remodels in the past I have had my share of bad experience so I knew I wanted a company that would work with me from start to finish.  I interviewed all full service remodel companies in San Diego before I made the choice that Lars was right for my kitchen and family room remodel.  That being said, after meeting Mike Hebert, I felt a connection and authenticity that he was not only interested in selling me on using Lars, but he was interested in my project and their would be customer service from beginning to end.  Mike was just a GIANT step above anyone I had met from all the other companies - Personable, knowledgeable, detail oriented and extremely professional.  He noticed a hollow tile that would have to be protected during construction and he noted what I could and couldn't do because I wasn't removing my tile and didn't have replacement tile.  My team also consisted of Yvette Travers, my designer and Larry Gallant, my project manager.  Yvette has style!  She had ideas, but maybe more importantly she listened to my ideas - she wanted my vision to come to life. As a result, her suggestions were always in line with mine.   Larry, kept my project moving along, never got flustered and cared that my experience with the remodel was positive.  The great thing is Mike, Yvette and Larrry were on MY TEAM!  They were my DREAM TEAM!  I don't want this to sound unrealistic - were there some hiccups, yes.  But  amazingly - Lars was behind me all the way and always solution oriented.  I've done remodeling before and NEVER have I had a positive experience with hiccups the way I did with Lars and every remodel I have been involved in has had some hiccups.   The promise they made up front held true - they were with me from beginning to end, they stayed on the timeline and budget!  My kitchen and family room are gorgeous - excactly what I wanted and more.

Full house remodel design and build including 3 baths, kitchen, family room, dining room, window replacement, exterior re-stucco. Strong commitment to customer satisfaction. Had more rework than expected which was all fixed to our satisfaction, but it added significantly to schedule (moved back in 7 months after start, but some new countertop replacement led to final completion at 12 months).

We had a 600 sq ft free standing guesthouse designed and built by LARS 2 yrs ago. The design is absolutely beautiful and matches our main house incredibly well. The construction is strong and has held up well so far. There have been a couple of minor appliance related issues since construction, but the team at LARS have been on top of them and addressed them quickly under the warranty. We would have no hesitation is using LARS for our future remodeling needs. More...

I have now had - I think it's - FIVE remodeling projects with Lars.  No regrets and would certainly use them again if needed.  The last one was a reno of MOST of my Moms house do to major flood damage.  The job was carried out with Lars usual professional (and SKILLED design) manner.  Service is remarkable.  Today, for example, we discovered a plumbing problem with one of the bathrooms that was remodeled.  I e-mailed a message to Lars and WITHIN AN HOUR I got a phone call from the plumber asking if he could come fix the problem the next morning.  WITHIN AN HOUR - from an E-MAIL.  I am totally impressed.  If you have a remodeling project - LARS is the company to call.- Ron Donofero More...

Coming from very humble life as a single mom and making it on my own in San Diego, my life took some drastic turns..married, a baby on the way & inheriting my childhood home. My parents hadn't made any changes or improvements to the house which it definitely was in need of.Talk about new territory, going into a scary world of remodel I really didn't believe I would find what I needed. A company that I could trust, not only with my money, but my childhood home filled with memories but also some pain having recently lost both my parents. We met with several companies, from the first initial meeting with LARS I felt there was something different about them. Of course you think to yourself, they are trying to make a sale and are just saying their pitch. So we cautiously went a little further and attended their remodel workshop. If nothing else they sent me away with information that was so helpful going into a remodel. (TIP: read the stuff from the workshop no matter who you remodel with!)Its also helpful from the beginning to be given a detailed explained of the time line and process. Expectations are set from the beginning, including the promise that no remodel is without hiccups but they would always work through everything with us, and be there every step of the way. Our design consultant was Lori, if I can be so bold to say I am convinced meeting her was fate. I needed someone who would not only listen to our desires for the remodel but see the story that this house told & respect it. She listened to every dream/desire we had & filled in the blanks where we had no clue what to do. I was so scared I was going to be told what I wanted or whats best for us. That was never the case, we were heard, our lifestyle was taken into consideration (growing family with young kids), things we had no clue about were carefully explained (and re-explained when needed). The design was truly amazing. As we decided to go into the project with LARS I was transparent that this was a very personal journey transforming my childhood home, and while it may be considered special treatment I asked that if I needed more time to process things it be given. I was never met with pressure only respect and compassion in this regard. Then the concern is how is Dad's old house going to turn into this computer rendering...especially without blowing all my money. I was relieving to discover it is not LARS intention to spend money for the sake of spending money, and I was given freedom to make selections to keep mindful of the costs.We were partnered with Interior Designer Yvette. She was so very patient with our inexperience. She helped put together all the little pieces that would eventually come together into a perfect cohesive home. Without her vision & experience we would of been lost. When you read LARS company motto of trust, and their claim that they don't do cookie cutter remodel, that they treat your home like their own...if you are like me you probably find that a little hard to believe. I would be lying if I wasn't skeptical of the ability for them to live up to this. It was gradual but as we worked through the process I found myself right there...TRUST.Our project manager was Jeff, he said exactly that "I treat your house like its my own". I really didn't think it was possible but he proved himself over and over. There was never a time I didn't think that Jeff & the entire team at LARS didn't have our best interests in mind. You can't fake genuine caring, compassion and good ethics. As promised we had some challenges on the way but Jeff was never phased his experience, professionalism & good heart prevails. He worked very hard to keep our project moving along with the highest quality every step of the way. We find ourselves in our dream home, with the team at LARS to thank for it. My lengthy review doesn't even cover all that I could say about this company. We have zero regrets we chose them to fix up Dad's old house. More...

Jason Larson at Lars Remodeling is a man of integrity and honesty. My whole home remodel of my 70's era home was challenging and complicated. Lars made everything come together and backed up all the work. If I wasn't happy, Lars wasn't happy. Three other family members have all used Lars for home remodeling. They are the best in San Diego and will make you feel comfortable during the entire process. More...

We chose Lars to do our total house remodel in 2008 from seeing their ad on television. We also interviewed two other similar firms but we chose Lars because they understood and worked with our "vision" for our home. Their design team was outstanding and made things "work" that we didn't think were possible! They really helped us to get as close as possible to our dream home within the existing physical limitations. Their main designer, Brandon Spahn, was very flexible and willing to tackle any changes we suggested or hoped to be able to include in our plan. He was very knowledgeable and introduced us to things that were possible that we had never considered. We were 110% satisfied with our experience with the Lars design team!! More...

Just completed another project with Lars.  THESE GUYS ARE FANTASTIC!  We remodeled our kitchen and unfortunately, we did not have an endless pile of cash, so they patiently worked with us to design the dream kitchen my wife wanted at the budget I wanted. End result:  we can't get our family and friends to leave!  Yes, its true, the kitchen is definitely a dream and everyone wants to hang at our house.  From the first meeting with Jason until the last meeting with Jason (their founder and President) everything was very organized and done as promised.  If you want very good work from RELIABLE people, go with Lars.

We recently went through an extensive renovation of our home which entailed moving our kitchen to a different location, expanding a bedroom, remodeling two bathrooms, adding a bedroom and an office, and adding a den. Everyone from Lars was amazing! They worked within our budget, gave us numerous options, and they were extremely accommodating considering we lived in our house during the renovation. Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable. We had estimates from other companies but Lars stood out because they really thought outside the box to make our wish list a reality. We liked the ideas they brought to the table and even almost a year after our renovation completed, they continue to stand behind all the work that their trades completed. We knew we were in good hands when we signed our contract. We highly recommend Lars to others looking to complete a renovation. You won't be disappointed! More...

My wife and I are remodeling our house and engaged Lars construction because we had heard very good things about the company. We were welcomed with a great deal of warmth by Jason Larson, the owner and his staff. It was unbelievable to us the amount of information and insight that Jason has, he didn’t hold back even though our project was more a smattering of a number of items as opposed to a major renovation moving walls and involving an area such as a major overhaul of a kitchen or bathroom(s). In the end, after providing a great deal of valuable information on a wide variety of techniques and resources, we found ourselves using our own trades people to do the more minor work. But, even after Jason realized that he was not going to get the job, he just couldn’t help himself and continued to offer suggestions while, at the same time, offering even more assistance in our efforts to get the job done at the least expense and with competent support from local resources. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Jason and his staff and will engage him and his company when we take a bigger step in remodeling our home. We believe we have a debt to him because of the many suggestions he had about our work. He seems more like a good friend than a mere purveyor and that goes a long way with us. We recommend Lars construction and look forward to working with Jason and company when we take on the larger project.

NOTE: The first paragraph of this review is about our negative experience with another contractor and is NOT about Lars Design & Remodeling. The rest of the review is about our positive experience with Lars Design & Remodeling.

Back in 2010, my husband and I attempted to remodel our entire house, using another contractor, but it ended up in disaster due to fraudulent actions taken by this contractor. This contractor's plans never made it through the City of San Diego's approval process, so in the end we wasted thousands of dollars on completely useless preliminary design plans and we were unable to recoup the money we spent. Needless to say, this negative experience left us feeling frustrated, defeated, and unmotivated, so our project came to a standstill for over 4 years.

In 2014, my husband and I felt ready to begin our home remodel process again, but this time we extensively researched and interviewed 5 reputable home design and remodeling companies. Ultimately, Lars Design & Remodeling appeared to be the company that would best suit our needs, so we went with them.

We selected Lars Design & Remodeling because we were impressed with their business model. Brandon and John, the initial Lars staff we met with, both spent a great deal of time with us, attempting to create a preliminary home design we both approved of, without charging us any money up front! Lars' practice of "no charges up front" took us by surprise because the other 4 companies we interviewed all wanted to charge us between $1,500.00 to $2,000.00, just to come up with a preliminary home design.

When we officially signed up with Lars, we naturally had concerns about the amount of money we were about to spend on our home remodeling project, as well as its final outcome, primarily due to the negative experience we had with the first contractor we attempted to use. But, during the course of our project, the Lars team assigned to our project, (Brandon, John, Chih, Owen, Bryan, and TC), alleviated our fears when we saw firsthand the level of experience, knowledge, expertise, competence, and professionalism each one of them brought to the table. As was to be expected with a project of this caliber, some minor unforeseen issues cropped up, but the Lars team always handled them with the utmost professionalism, patience, and to our complete satisfaction.

In the end, Lars Design & Remodeling gave us a Dream Home that turned out better than we ever imagined and we absolutely LOVE our new home, we're extremely pleased! From our positive experience with Lars Design & Remodeling, we feel confident in recommending them as a reputable home design and remodeling company, who focuses on customer satisfaction, quality, and providing the customer with an outstanding product. Thank you Lars Design & Remodeling, for making our home remodel dreams come true!

We hired Lars to perform a major renovation on our house (additional square footage, new kitchen, new bathrooms). Lars was wonderful to work with. They have a great team that helped us figure out what we wanted and what worked/didn't work within our budget. Ultimately, they delivered a house that looks even better than we imagined.

The few minor hiccups that happened during the project we taken care of by Lars, no questions asked. There were no surprises, and the final bill came in less than the estimate (this was something we were very concerned about after watching all the renovation shows on TV).

We can't say enough good things about Lars. We recommend them to everyone these days. If/when we're ready to do our next project, we'll be going right back to Lars.

We recently had Lars Remodeling draw plans for a home addition. Unfortunately, our financing fell through at the last minute.

My husband and I worked with Jason Lars and his team on plans for a whole-house remodel.  They were very professional, detailed, prompt and knowledgeable.  They came to our home to take accurate measurements and to help us determine what would work.  We then went to their office for a great computer presentation.Quite unexpectedly we found an already remodel home which met our needs perfectly.While we did not ultimately complete a project with Lars we would highly recommend them.

After 4 years we are still in love with our remodeled kitchen - and everything else around the house. We were hoping to be able to afford a really great kitchen remodel - with a laundry room. ..and in a few years do more of the house. What Jason and his team were able to do with our budget was incredible! Sooo we jumped in and did the entire house all at once and had a fabulous time dreaming/working with Brandon Spann and John Klacka.. When our original project manager moved, Jason Larson himself stepped in and took that role for the last few months - completing the whole house project early! The follow up has been incredible as well. Can't say enough good stuff about Jason and his team! More...

NOTE: The first paragraph of this review is about our negative experience with another contractor and is NOT about Lars Design & Remodeling. The rest of the review is about our positive experience with Lars Design & Remodeling.Back in 2010, my husband and I attempted to remodel our entire house, using another contractor, but it ended up in disaster due to fraudulent actions taken by this contractor. This contractor's plans never made it through the City of San Diego's approval process, so in the end we wasted thousands of dollars on completely useless preliminary design plans and we were unable to recoup the money we spent. Needless to say, this negative experience left us feeling frustrated, defeated, and unmotivated, so our project came to a standstill for over 4 years. In 2014, my husband and I felt ready to begin our home remodel process again, but this time we extensively researched and interviewed 5 reputable home design and remodeling companies. Ultimately, Lars Design & Remodeling appeared to be the company that would best suit our needs, so we went with them.  We selected Lars Design & Remodeling because we were impressed with their business model. Brandon and John, the initial Lars staff we met with, both spent a great deal of time with us, attempting to create a preliminary home design we both approved of, without charging us any money up front! Lars' practice of "no charges up front" took us by surprise because the other 4 companies we interviewed all wanted to charge us between $1,500.00 to $2,000.00, just to come up with a preliminary home design. When we officially signed up with Lars, we naturally had concerns about the amount of money we were about to spend on our home remodeling project, as well as its final outcome, primarily due to the negative experience we had with the first contractor we attempted to use. But, during the course of our project, the Lars team assigned to our project, (Brandon, John, Chih, Owen, Bryan, and TC), alleviated our fears when we saw firsthand the level of experience, knowledge, expertise, competence, and professionalism each one of them brought to the table. As was to be expected with a project of this caliber, some minor unforeseen issues cropped up, but the Lars team always handled them with the utmost professionalism, patience, and to our complete satisfaction. In the end, Lars Design & Remodeling gave us a Dream Home that turned out better than we ever imagined and we absolutely LOVE our new home, we're extremely pleased! From our positive experience with Lars Design & Remodeling, we feel confident in recommending them as a reputable home design and remodeling company, who focuses on customer satisfaction, quality, and providing the customer with an outstanding product. Thank you Lars Design & Remodeling, for making our home remodel dreams come true! More...

Jason Larson with Lars Remodeling is the best! We used them 16 years ago in 1999 to do a remodel of our house and they were fantastic. The house was built in 1951, but he was able to design the addition in such a a way that is is hard to tell where the old house ends and the addition begins. But the real reason Jason has been so successful, (you have probably seen his ads on TV ) is Jason's integrity and willingness to stand behind the work of his crew and subcontractors. If there is a problem, he will make good on it. We had a slab leak this year and I called him for advice after I had gotten bids from two plumbers, (approx $5000). When he came out to take a look he saw that the plumber that he used 15 years ago MAY have made a mistake. Although it was Unrelated to the cause of the leak (old house with steel pipes in the slab) he had a crew of 6 guys out the next day to replumb the whole house. They were done in a day and a half he didn't charge us, even though we were ready to pay! What else can I say. You can't go wrong with Lars Remodeling. More...

Lars Construction is top of the line.  We had Lars do our home remodel in which we added a second floor and added almost 2000 square feet to our house.  The job was completed 30 days early.  Each step of the way Jason and his team kept us informed, made sure we understood everything they were doing, and ensured that we were satisfied with the work.  Initially we had another company come out to consult on what we wanted.  They returned with all "their" ideas not ours.  We had a meeting with Lars and they came back with everything we wanted and even more.My wife and I would never use anyone else.

We hired Lars after interviewing numerous contractors for a whole house remodel. Lars is definitely the most up to date with their use of Builders Trend, dedication to keeping to the schedule and the professionalism of the entire staff. Their quote was reasonable and they made sure we were happy with all aspects of the remodel. We are so pleased with the results. Our Design Manager, Lori Drake, and our Project Manager, Jeff Brown, were outstanding. They made sure we were satisfied with each step of the process. There was never a problem too small or too large...they handled it! We highly recommend Lars Remodeling and Design for any remodel needs. We tell everyone we know that they are most definitely the best! More...

We hired this company over two years ago to redo our master bath, then our guest room bathroom, then replace all hallway cabinets with granite countertops. Last project was a redo of our office took out two doors replace with one window and an entertainment center against that wall all in cherry finish! Our Project Manager and Design Manager was Lori Drake! She became a member of our family. She was always ready to take over and make sure the job got done. So kind, respectful, professional and focused on what needed to be done! We would recommend Lare to our friends and neighbors. They are a family owned business and they work hard make sure their clients are always the most important! More...

We had Lars remodel our entire downstairs and were very happy with the finished product.  Our remodel was well over $100,000. and included gutting our kitchen, putting in a tongue and groove ceiling, wainscoting, stone wall, barn door, etc.  Lori Drake was our Project director and she was great!  Whenever we reached a snag, she was able to find a solution. All of the tradesmen arranged for through Lars were professional and expert in their skill.  Yvette Travers was our designer.  I am not one to agonize over one shade of green versus another, but she sure is.  She gently steered me and I couldn't be happier with how all the colors and choices looked together.  If I were to have another remodel job, I would definitely hire Lars again.  I felt like they really cared and made sure that I was happy with everything.

Lori was the Lars rep that sold me on their capabilities, and then really came through on my kitchen/dining/living room remodel, offering such creative design ideas for the selection of cabinets, flooring, granite, appliances etc. My remodel involved taking down a couple walls relocating sink/stove, eliminating and resizing windows, and it's just beautiful. I was living in my home during the downstairs remodel -- The construction crews were careful to be sure my cats didn't get out and they cleaned up every day. I interviewed five of the large remodeling firms and Lars reviews were consistently great - they were a perfect fit. More...

We remodeled our entire downstairs with Lars and were very pleased with the final outcome. We completely gutted the kitchen, added built-ins, a stone wall, tongue and groove ceiling, barn door, built-ins and wainscoting. Lori Drake oversaw our project and was very easy to communicate with. There were some special details- mounting an antique glass panel in an interior door and building hidden cabinets into the wainscoting which required some creativity and the Lars team helped us all the details worked out. I would definitely recommend Lars again and would hire them again myself! More...

I have to say that when Seth came out to give us an estimate on our upstairs project he gave quality information.  Basically, he knew all the specs and didn't try to sell us something we didn't need.  I believe Lars is a  company that gives you what you want and answers all your questions without trying to sell you something they think you need.

We did a major home addition and remodel of our kitchen through Lars, adding almost 600 square feet (extending our dining area and adding a room upstairs).  Jason Larson (who owns the company) is genuine, honest, and down to earth.  These qualities really reflect in his business and ethics.  Our house was only about 10 years old but we wanted it to be more functional.  We wanted a remodel where no one could tell where the old house stopped and the additions/changes began.  And this is exactly what we got.  We love the end product of our remodel.  And we have received so many compliments from our neighbors on how the house really fits into the existing scheme of the neighborhood.  While no major remodel is going to be without bumps, Jason and his team worked hard to make sure we were ultimately satisfied.  I am very grateful for Jason's involvement with our project.    We are going to enjoy many years of enjoyment from our investment.

We would recommend Lars without hesitation. Our previous experience with a contractor was horrible enough to keep us from upgrading our home for many years. Now we were ready for a full remodel. When interviewing contractors we found Seth who was easy to talk to, full of ideas, professional and a nice person. He had many immediate suggestions....many of which we ended up using. His designer John, drew up plans that made us see our home in a new way. We LOVED it! Once the project was started, Seth and his team of professionals at Lars kept us informed with each step. The sub-contractors were respectful of our property, our 'treasures' and of us. The remodel was completed on schedule, although somewhat over budget. Two major problems were found during the job that could not have been foreseen. They were discussed in detail with us and we were given options on how to deal with them.
Seth, Cody, John and Chih were a major help to us for our largest remodel project and hopefully our last. Thank you to the Lars family for the wonderful job you've done.

We just received the closing book for the project we had Lars do, and this is just one more example of the detail and professionalism that was displayed every step of the way (the book contains all product information, warranties, selections, permits, etc that we can hand off to buyers if we ever move). The process started with a free design consultation with Seth Larson and John Klacka, who were such a pleasure to work with, and who seemed genuinely excited to work within the somewhat unusual parameters of our project (a second story on our detached garage to add an artist's studio, storage and guest quarters). Next, we had the pleasure of working with Chih, who helped us with our selections of flooring, doors, hardware, colors, fixtures, etc. She was so attentive to our tastes and preferences, the process was made that much easier.Our project manager was Brian Wood. After working with him closely for a good six months, I have to say that he will be missed!!! He was very patient, attentive, and prompt at addressing any questions or concerns, and handled requests for changes gracefully. He also likes dogs, which is important to us :-) As others have noted, it is very reassuring to know that Lars doesn't vanish with the end of the project, but will be there to help with warranties, etc. Finally, the project came in on time and as budgeted so there were never any nasty surprises or hidden costs. This company is of the highest quality and delivers peace of mind, which in my book is priceless. More...

Lars made the dream home that I pictured in my mind a reality. I described what I envisioned and Lars built upon that and made it even better! Lars was very professional and creative. They stayed within budget and where they could, they helped us cut our budget. They were very forthcoming with their ideas before they got the job, during the job, and even after the job. They were helpful even after the project was completed and they were paid when I called to ask for help on other projects that they were not hired to do (it was a small project that we wanted to do on our own). I recommended Lars to friends and will continue to recommend them. More...

My wife and I were very impressed with whole Lars team. Their customer service level is outstanding. We added a bedroom, repainted both the interior and exterior, as well as replaced much of the flooring throughout the house. Their design team was a pleasure to work with. They were very patient and did all they could to insure we were comfortable and happy at every turn. Every member of their team respected our home as though it was theirs. And they insured that their sub-contractors acted the same way. Never before had I seen a contractor be so thorough in it's selection and management of it's subs. I would highly recommend that you include Lars on your list of potential contractors. They did an outstanding job. More...

We just finished a project with Lars Remodel & Design. We love our new space!!! We were very nervous about a remodel. From beginning to end the Lars team kept us updated and made sure we were comfortable with what was going on. The employees that worked at our home were very respectful of our home and us. Our designer Chih was awesome. She understood what we wanted and helped put it in motion and its just beautiful. Any questions or concerns the president and owner Jason Larson was available to help. We had a concern with tile installed in our new shower and the team handled it efficiently and made sure we loved the outcome. We love to show off our new space to our friends and family. Any future remodel we may do they will be the company we will use. We also would not hesitate to recommend them to our friends and family. More...

We had a free design consultation with Lars, and they were able to come up with an elegant and thoroughly workable solution to our entryway problem - something we'd been wrestling with for ages (and had other designers/architects look at).  We had them do a huge remodel for us... entryway, kitchen, den.  We've never had anything like this done before, and we were slightly terrified.  They were professionals every step of the way, and we are so glad we went with them.  Brandon is a guy of the utmost integrity, and as a bonus, he's a veritable library of useless movie quotes.  He and the rest of our team made the long, arduous process of remodeling completely bearable.  You might get a cheaper quote from someone else, but you won't get better service.  Given the nightmares we've heard from others whose contractors have bailed on them toward the end of their projects, we considered going with a reputable contractor a no-brainer.

Lars Remodeling and Design is a fantastic company to use for any remodel big or small. We had a WHOLE house remodel both inside and out completed by Lars which included 3 bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, 4 bedrooms with built in cabinetry, crown moldings, new doors, room addition, roofing and much, much more. We worked with Brandon Spann and John Klacka who made the design process fun and the end results very rewarding. Our ideas and desires were incorporated into the design so as not to have just a “cookie cutter” remodel. Our dream house became a reality for us. The subcontractors Lars used were always professional and respectful of our home. We also had a great project manager who met with us weekly (and really pretty much on a daily basis!!) Weekly meetings are a staple of LARS. If any problems arose they were taken care of immediately. Our project manager was a great problem solver and was able to fix and/or address any glitches that occurred. The quality of the work and materials used are absolutely the gold standard of the industry. Lars also has taken care of any problems that occur without hesitation and have done so for us even after our warranty had expired. I highly recommend Lars Remodeling and Design for any project.

We did a major remodeling project with Lars in 2008 and were more than completely satisfied with our entire experience with the company. Their planning is meticulous from start to finish and the client is always included in decision making. Everyone we dealt with did everything possible to meet our expectations and even exceed them. But what really continues to amaze us is Lars' commitment to guarantee the quality of their work and the products they provide. They have supported us when we have had issues with our bathroom fixtures at least twice over the years since our remodel, even though the problem was not with the installation. And, most recently, while we were installing solar panels on our roof it was discovered that a part was missing on one of the vents. The solar company sent a roofer to repair the problem and he charged us for his work. I called Lars and they not only made good on the charge but gave us a bonus gift card as well! This happened 5-1/2 years after the completion of our project. I can say, unequivocally, that Lars not only keeps all of their promises, but they go well beyond for their clients. We are so happy we chose Lars for our home remodel project! More...

We just completed a project with Lars Remodeling and Design. We love our new addition and new shower!!! We were very apprehensive about this size project. We met with the Lars team and they made us feel very comfortable. They were up front and honest and we knew we had made the right choice. The president Jason Larson was always available if needed and Bryan the project director were very helpful.  Thanks to Chih for all her design ideas. She was wonderful and pleasant to work with. If we do any projects in the future no questions this company will be who we choose.  We love having friends and family over to show off our new space. We had a problem with our shower tile cracking when they installed it--Lars made sure that is was corrected right away and that we were happy with the results. We would recommend Lars Remodeling and Design to any one looking for a great job at a fair price. They really care!!! More...

We hired Lars Construction to do a complete remodel of our home. It was a terrific experience and we absolutely love the outcome. We went from a small beach cottage to a 2 story home overlooking the San Diego Bay. I knew from our first meeting with Seth, Project Manager and John their in house Architect that they were very creative and professional. They listened to our ideas and then within minutes Seth began sketching possible scenerios of a new updated kitchen incorporating our spectacular view. (incidently when we got to the actual kitchen design detail phase, Lisa, their Kitchen Designer was amazing in her placement and flow of our space. It was extremely helpful to plan with Seth at the La Mesa office & use a spectacular computer program so we could see visuals of our project. We had an overall Designer again provided by Lars to guide us through material selections according to OUR lifestyle and coastal theme, (I considered her my personal designer/shopper!) There were a few times such as in the selection of flooring that we hired our own supplier and installer, this was never a problem and I liked that Lars handled the scheduling with them.. My husband has built many homes in the past and has always been a stickler for quality and service. He was the primary one who would meet at our project site for the weekly progress meetings with Lars. We found them to be very flexible throughout the entire building process & would even try alternate ideas if we so desired. They are a company of honest people that have a lot of integrity. My husband & I recommend Lars Construction to anyone desiring a quality remodel.! More...

Lars Remodling & Design completed our project within 6 months as planned. We are so pleased with the final result! From start to finish their team kept us informed as the project moved forward. The design was thoughtful and incorporated all our wishes and exceeded our expectations most times. The interior design team was beyond exceptional and they made the process painless and absolutely beautiful! From the project manager on down we felt we received the best the trades had to offer. Everyone on our site was professional and even downright fun to be around. We have referred others to Lars because of our positive experience. You can be assured of their total commitment to your satisfaction. They are an honest company that genuinely strives to give you their BEST! More...

We had a great experience working with Seth when he was with Lars. Stel recently began working with us on a comprehensive kitchen, laundry room and pantry remodel. We had consulted with other professionals and interior designers but Seth's design and approach was superior to any of the others both from an aesthetic viewpoint and, more importantly, the practicality of construction. Having been through a number of remodels over the years we can attest to the importance of having the right team on the job. The potential disruption while the work is going on can be minimized with the right approach and the right individuals. The final outcome is also a result of having the best craftsmen that have an eye for finish detail. With Seth and Stel you get it all. Thank you, Seth and STEL!!! More...

I was familiar with Lars Remodeling and Design because of the fabulous job they did on my friends' addition of a second floor to their home.  Recently, I had to undergo emergency surgery to remove a recurring brain tumor, and needed to make my patio and doorsteps walker safe.   As a mom raising two children alone, I was overwhelmed by the work that needed to be done.  My friend contacted owner Jason Larson at Lars Remodeling and Design and explained my situation.  Jason responded with such amazing kindness and generosity!  He and his dad, Gary, assessed my patio area while I was still in the hospital, and completed all the work that needed to be done before I returned home.  They did a beautiful job, making my patio area safe and designing a perfect landing and step area to accomodate my walker.  Jason did the work free of charge, donating both materials and labor as an act of charity.  I am so thankful to Jason, his father Gary, and the other professional crew members from Lars Remodeling and Design who worked so hard on this project.  This was a true act of kindness and compassion, and my daughters and I are so grateful!

On the recommendation of my decorators, I had Lars Construction do my remodel about 4 years ago.  I completely remodeled my kitchen/family room/master suite and added about 850 square feet to my house.  First, I have to say that the work they did was of very high quality.  Second, they were a pleasure to work with, always professional, reasonable to deal with when problems arose, and I love that they warranty their work.  There were several items that I used other sub contractors for (i.e. cabinets, tile, etc) and went directly to those subcontractors in order to save some money, however now i have discovered that they are all out of business, so their warranties are useless to me.  Lars, however, stands behind their work and has always come to fix anything that has gone wrong.  I have had many friends that have had horror stories about contractors bidding a job at one price and then winding up 10's of thousands of dollars over budget and taking twice as long to get the job done.  My job came in on time and on budget (unless it was something I changed).  They delivered what they promised, in the timeframe that they committed to up front.  I would highly recommend Lars for any size remodel, large or small.  Special thanks to Brandon and Brian!!

When we sat down and reviewed the bids this contractor was more expensive. They tried to work with us to fit our budget but we couldn't make the numbers work..

We are very pleased with the remodel of our kitchen and the restructuring of the space to add a powder room. As a result the house is much more useable, practical and livable.  On top of that every one of the employees was a pleasure to work with; in addition to being highly competent and capable.The design took the best advantage of the space available, with just the right modern touches while being true to the look and feel of the house's 1923 ambience. And did I say beautiful yet?  The kitchen is gorgeous and even the powder room gets rave reviews.The team was attentive to our wants and needs; whatever problems, concerns or issues came up, what we asked for was done, and done right.   We were always treated with courtesy, respect and professionalism; there was great communication and an attitude that quality was the only goal.  This went beyond the Lars team and included the sub-contractors as well.  It is obvious that Lars only works with individuals and companies that embody the same attitude and spirit: treating the customer right and doing a great job.We highly recommend Lars Construction. We'd use them again, and will recommend them whenever we get the chance. They do great work, you won't be disappointed. More...

Our experience this past year with Lars was a great example of how a design and build job should work. They recently completed a master bath redesign project for us. Their design team provided plenty of creative ideas, while leaving us with the feeling of being in total control throughout the process. Once the design was agreed to, construction was carried out with exceptional professionalism. The Lars project manager was on top of the job and in contact with us at all times. Everything was out in the open, and every issue that came up (and there will be something in nearly every home remodeling job) included our direct involvement and agreement.  Subcontractors were not just highly skilled in their trades, but  courteous and careful to clean up after each day's work as well. Throughout the job, it was clear that the highest priority was seeing that we would be happy with the results in the end. In the months since construction was finished, Lars has continued to demonstrate a commitment to standing behind their work by following up and responding to every question or issue, no matter how minor. We would not hesitate to hire Lars for future work, and would happily recommend them to anyone looking for a quality full-service construction and remodeling firm. More...
