We worked with Mike Roberts and his team at So-Cal Builders on the complete, top-to-bottom remodel of our home. From planning, to budgeting, to tracking and explaining the many construction phases, SCB was extremely well organized, knowledgeable, and worked closely with us to make the vision we had for our home into a reality. They are prompt, thorough and execute to precision standards. We were not present for much of our project, but they communicated well with us to keep us informed. All the subcontractors brought in were experienced, professional and did top notch work.

Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with. So-Cal Builders exceeded our expectations and we have an amazing home to show for it. I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend them for any project.

So Cal Builders completed a renovation of our la Quinta condo while we were living in Kansas. They did so in an incredibly tight time frame and we LOVE the results! Mike and his team are completely professional and I will sing their praises to anyone who will listen! More...

Mike and his guys did excellent work on our house.  I really appreciated the customer service they gave us throughout the project.  They finished on time and were a pleasure to work with.  They completely delivered on our requests and were really easy to work with.   This is not common in the construction business and I really appreciated it.

We purchased our Mission Hills - Legacy - home in July and were introduced to Mike Roberts of SoCal Builders by our realtor - who knew we were planning a major remodel of the home. Mike took our ideas and back of napkin plans and returned to us an incredible finished product. Through his leadership and the superb team of sub-contractors he has assembled over many years - our best goals were realized. The project far surpassed our expectations. From project accounting to timeline management - we have been amazed by the level of detail Mike and his team provide. This was a "major" remodel in every sense of the word. At the end of the job - we have had exactly zero disagreements or disappointments. That's quite a compliment - especially when you consider we live 1200 miles away and only visited the job-site 3 or 4 times - from beginning to end! Great job Mike and team!!! Thank you for what you have done for our family. More...

The most recent job was completed this fall and include: new flooring, a complete kitchen make over, a new slider, paint, lighting and a complete master bath make over.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mike Roberts of SoCal Builders on two large clubhouse remodel projects with a combined budget of over $1 million. His experiance and attention to the process helped bring the costs in under budget. I look forward to working with him in the future. More...

I had a garage that had two separate doors, with a two foot column between the doors. I always held my breath going in or our of the garage for fear of scraping the cars. Mike Roberts of SoCal Builders gave me a very reasonable quote to demolish the column and put in an eighteen foot single door. The work was done timely and professionally. The workers cleaned up each day. I am extremely happy with the work Mike and his men did. I will use them again if I have any building needs. More...

Mike, the owner of So-Cal Builder was selected from four other bids for my remodel and new addition. The accuracy and clarity of the bid were both factors as well as his competitive price. During construction he suggested many practical design ideas that did not increase the cost. He also suggested upgrades that would make living conditions and long term upkeep more reliable, also at no extra financial benefit to him. He kept costs down as low as he could with sacrificing quality. When there were obstacles or problems he discovered in the old construction, he recommended the best solutions at the most affordable price. He would never cover up anything about problems in the old home that would possibly cause me greater costs and agony in the future. His options and solutions were always put on the table and he always let me decide on whether I wanted to fix it now, at a much lower cost or put it off until later. More...

We have used Mike Roberts & So CA Builders for the past 5 years for various projects. Room & Garage addition (2011), Living Room & Patio Remodel (2013) and current Master Bath Remodel. Mike is on top of everything, him & his staff are always professional and show up when they say. At the end of the day they leave our home always cleaned up and ready for the next day. Already planning the next project. More...

Mike Roberts is a first class craftsman. He has done two additions as well as patio work and even constructed a built in bar-b-q. All these projects were done within the time frame agreed upon at a price that was truly competitive. The work site was kept clean and safe at all times. his workers arrived when expected and carried on in efficient style.
Mr. Roberts was always available if I had any questions and was helpful in accommodating and helpful if I decided on any changes or additions to the original project plan.

Overall, we are very satisfied with SoCal's work. We did floors, walls, cabinets, painting inside/outside, just about everything. Mike's team and subcontractors are experienced, skilled, hardworking and careful.

Mike Roberts, owner of So Cal Builders, and his crew removed my two eight foot garage doors, and a two foot pillar in the middle, and replaced them with a beautiful eighteen foot garage door.  The work was done, compentently, on schedule, and I was amazed at the results.  It is beautiful, and I don't have to worry about scraping my car backing out of the garage.  I would HIGHLY recommend Mike and his crew for any building projects you might plan.Hollis Hardin More...

Mike Roberts at So-Cal Builders is exceptionally professional and detail oriented. Neither myself nor my clients live in Rancho Mirage full time, but Mike has such excellent communication skills, and he is so quick to respond to any questions or concerns that the distance did not matter. His entire crew are true craftsmen that with Mike's direction produced a beautiful finished project that exceeded all expectations. Mike knows and works with all the best suppliers and trades, and he went out of his way to provide me with any introduction I needed to make my job as a designer easier. I would definitely recommend Mike to any clients renovating or building a home in the desert! More...

In March of 2015, Mike Roberts was referred by a friend in Vancouver saying Mike Roberts has successfully managed many projects for him in the past. Based upon that strong recommendation, SOCal Builders was presented with design plans from which he submitted a detailed renovation proposal. Mike was hired to undertake the project in April of 2015. The project entailed a major renovation of a 5500 sq. ft. home in Rancho Mirage. The pricing was fair, competitive and Mike finished the project virtually on time and on budget. Communication with Mike was always a pleasure, productive and he always made the deadlines agreed upon. In particular, I was impressed with Mike's staff and his overall management of the sub trades: I do not hesitate to highly recommend Mike and SOCal Builders. Great job Mike. Thanks. Tim & Judy.

Have done 2 houses for us. On house 1 the extensive renovations were accomplished over the summer when we were not present.Result? Perfect. On time and on budget. Project #2 allowed us to interact more with Mike's people. Couldn't be more helpful and always left the job site immaculate at the end of the day. Result? Perfect. On time and on budget. I should add that ,when we were house hunting, we would often call Mike to evaluate the possibilities in a house we had seen. He would often drop everything to meet us at a house and his opinions were always spot on. More...

Mike Roberts and SoCal Builders are a pleasure to work with. As a designer, I work with all types of contractors and tradespeople, and Mike is by far one of the best. Clients love his temperament, attitude, and work ethic. They also love the fact that things are done on time and on budget. His ability to manage large construction projects and his team with a calm, "can do" manner can be rare in this business. On our most recent project together, a large and complete remodel, Mike managed every aspect of the job, from plans, city inspections, complete demolition, to all construction (interior and exterior), tile, paint, plumbing, electrical and more. He was able to take my designs and drawings and make them a reality for our mutual clients, who are 110% happy and thrilled with their newly done home. More...

Without a doubt Mike Roberts and Southern California Builders is hand up the best company I have ever had the pleasure of working with, as well as all my clients I have referred to him.

I recently purchased a new home in the valley, and I was referred to So-Cal Builders for the renovation. Although the house was already in live-able conditions, we wanted to make changes to modernize and to make it uniquely our own. We wanted various upgrades throughout the home. One of my biggest concerns was budgeting. Since we had just bought a new home, I wanted to make sure that we were not going to be price-gouged with the upgrades. Mike, owner of So-Cal Builders, worked with me every step of the way. From our initial consultation to the final walk-though, Mike was extremely helpful with planning, organizing, and completing our project. He set a schedule that he adhered to, and thanks to his strategic planning and follow through, we completed our project on time. And the very best part, it was within the budget we had agreed on from the start.

The work that So-Cal Builders completed is as follows:

They remodeled all of the bathrooms, which consisted of one master suite and three additional full baths. So-Cal Builders replaced all of the old cabinets and drawers, removed all of the standard counter tops and replaced them with granite, installed new plumbing fixtures, and changed out all of the lighting fixtures. They also built a custom vanity and walk-in shower (with extravagant tile work I should also add) in the master suite, which are now the highlights of the room.

In the kitchen, So-Cal Builders replaced the old sink and faucet with a newer, much nicer model. They installed new appliances throughout, changed out all of the lighting fixtures, made repairs to the existing cabinets, and installed new cabinet pulls throughout.
In addition to remodeling our kitchen and bathrooms, So-Cal Builders also installed crown molding in our living room and dining room. They also custom painted our home throughout, making each room feel warm and welcoming.

We enjoy having guests over, when weather in the desert permits, so we needed a backyard that would be worthy of entertaining. So-Cal Builders turned our empty “desert lot” into a lush paradise. They laid beautiful stone pavers to give us a patio space, and they also designed and built a custom barbeque area complete with a sink, refrigerator, and seating for guests. They also designed and built us a custom firepit with seating for us to enjoy during the winter. So-Cal Builders did all of our landscaping throughout the backyard. They built beautiful planters along the block wall complete with gravel, palm trees, and various other native plants. They laid sod throughout the yard as well. They also installed all of the irrigation and landscape lighting.

I am extremely pleased with the work that So-Cal Builders did. I feel proud to have guests over and to entertain in our new home. Mike Roberts was a delight to work with. He is very thorough and detailed in project management. I never doubted that there was something that Mike couldn’t handle. His team is very respectful and they keep their workspace clean. I highly recommend So-Cal Builders to anyone looking for a general contractor that is honest, reliable, and a true professional. I am extremely happy with the work So-Cal Builders did for us and I will continue to use their services again in the future.

Thanks Mike and team!

I would like to share my experience with So-Cal Builders. Mike Roberts, the owner, made an appointment to come over in a timely manner to assess the problem with my pergola. The large pergola, which is over 20 years old and permanently attached to my home, had started to deteriorate and the beams were cracked, separating from the posts, and beginning to fall. I feared that if the problem was not corrected right away my pergola would come crashing down and cause additional damage to my home. Mike inspected the repair and gave me a couple of options, and together we decided on the repair that would work best for me and my budget. He informed me that he would send workers over the following week, that I did not need to be there, and approximately how long the repair would take. Everything went exactly as he has told me, which I guess from talking with others in similar situations, is rare. No delays, no hassles, nothing unexpected, and I am extremely pleased with the result! Without a doubt, I plan to use Mike Roberts of So-Cal Builders for my future remodeling projects. I recommend you do the same. More...

I have had the "great pleasure" of working closely with Mike Roberts of So-Cal Builders on 3 different occasions to date for a mutual client of ours. He has always been very easy to collaborate with and executes a professional, confident approach for all details necessary with projects ranging from
mid to high end.. More importantly, Mike makes everyone he works with feel at ease and is a "YES" Man...reflecting a positive outlook towards details on all his projects both big or small. He has excellent communication skills, a strong work ethic and has a good sense of humor which is always a welcome trait while undertaking renovations of any kind which at times, can be stressful for the clients.
I look forward to working closely with Mike and his team once again in the future.
If you are in need of a credible, detail oriented company that has celebrated many successful projects based on their own merit to assist you in building or renovating your dream project...
do yourself a favor....call Mike of So-Cal Builders. They will not only meet but exceed your expectations.
