Highly Recommend Joel and Company as a Builder, 1/20/2013

My wife and I just finished a large home addition and kitchen remodel with Joel & Co. Construction. We are extremely happy with the entire process and the outcome of our remodel. We found Joel and... company online where we noticed they had a 5 star rating. We interviewed other contractors but ultimately decided to go with Joel Portillo because we felt he had a more modern style of building, the price was right on target and most important he was just as excited about the project as we were. We contacted all of his references and all were saying that he is an exceptional contractor that cares about customer satisfaction.... We agree, and will continue to work with Joel & Co. on our next projects.

Los Angeles Best Rated General Contractor! No Lie., 6/19/2012

Completely satisfied with my condo remodel. I was introduced to Joel by a girl friend of mine who had her yoga studio designed and built by him. I had just bought my first condo here in West... Hollywood, so this was my first experience with a contractor and happy to say a great one. I met with Joel at my new place to go over the scope of work. We seriously spent about a two hours together going over all my ideas and style. He was super nice, charming and most importantly very professional. After having such a great meeting with Joel, I did a little research on his company and come to find out they are a popular construction company out here in L.A. From the get-go I had a really good feeling about Joel & Company. I had them completely renovate my condo. I had them install new wood floors, remodel my kitchen, bathrooms, and paint the entire unit. I had an absolute wonderful experience with the renovation. This is an awesome company!! Joel is an amazing contractor and friend :) I’ve already recommended Joel to a few of my friends and they all like him just as much as I do. Thanks again Joel for all of your help. Told you I would remember to post a review!!

Above & Beyond our expectations

We decided to hire Joel & Co. Construction to remodel the interior of our home. We upgraded our kitchen, all three bathrooms, change the flooring throughout and repaint the interior and exterior of our house. We are so impressed, the entire project was handled professionally and the final result was a reflection of our taste. Our kitchen and bathroom remodel came out better then we expected.

Best General Contractor in LA

I noticed Joel working on a unit in my condo and asked if he could come over and give me a quote on remodeling my kitchen. He spent about an hour with me going over my ideas and style. After talking with another contractor I felt more confident with Joel. He was straightforward, very professional, and easy to talk with. I am extremely happy with my new kitchen and couldn’t be happier with my experience with Joel & Co. Construction. All the workers were polite, courteous, and demonstrate outstanding work ethic. I am fairly new to LA and having Joel Portillo as a contact is a fabulous thing.

100% recommend !! RELIABLE General Contractor

The general contracting service of Joel & Co Construction is the best I've ever used. Before using them I've tried to be my own general contractor on several properties that I own, and my experience was stressful, and time consuming. The worst part was the scheduling of different and various contractors. Joel & Co Construction is my general contractor that I've been using for a little over 5 years. Whether I need a small leak repaired or a large renovation to a new property Joel & Co is my go to general contractor.

From start to finish.....Great experience!

I recently had my bathroom remodeled by this company. They do amazing, amazing work!!! I live in a condo and the HOA is very strict on contractors working on the building (license, insurance, permits, etc.). Out of 3 general contractors I interviewed Joel & Co was the only one that had all the requirements’ up to date. I was very impressed with professionalism, detail, and enthusiasm they brought to my project. It is very evident that these guys love what they do. Joel is a person of his word, he showed up when he said he would, and completed the work in the time frame he quoted. The staff was neat and thorough in the work they did. I am a very satisfied customer and I plan to do more business with them in the near future. It is rare these days to find a contractor you can trust and who is honest. My experience working with Joel & Co Construction was a pleasant one. I highly recommend them.

Professional Quality Work!

First of all, I just want to mention that it was really refreshing to have Joel (general contractor) come over and give me an estimate instead of a sales rep. I had 5 estimates from different contractors I found on line and this company was the only one who had their contractor come out. Joel was knowledgeable, respectful, and absolutely no pushiness in his tone of voice. I explained to him what I wanted done, he listened, took notes and the next day I got emailed a proposal. I hired Joel & Co. to upgrade my plumbing and electrical and also paint the exterior of my home. I must say, it was an absolutely great experience. If you have a project to do, be sure to get an estimate from Joel & Co Construction!

Wonderful Experience with this CONTRACTOR!!

I was blown away by the services provided by this company. I was in need for a general contractor for my kitchen remodel. I called in the morning and was greeted later on that same day. The next morning I was emailed a reasonable and detailed estimate. They are very respectful, hardworking, talented, honest, and prompt. They helped me redesign and build my new kitchen and their team performed elaborate finish work. I've dealt with many general contractors in the past, but the quality and enthusiasm that Joel Portillo brings to the project is by far the best experience I've had with a general contractor. In addition, although not being part of the contract, Joel provided me with sound advice and drawings to better plan the outcome of my kitchen remodel. I highly recommend his service to anyone! A general contractor that provides great service! I rated them on kudzu and on google, this company deserves it...

General Contractor that delivers!

I had three contractors come to my house to give me an estimate but some of them weren’t licensed, others didn’t have workers comp and some didn’t have liability insurance. Joel & Co Construction was the only company that had all the right credentials in order and also has an A+ rating with the BBB. They even provided me with a list of references before I decided to hire them. Researching a company before you hire is important, Joel & Co Construction sets the bar for other general contractors to follow. I had a great experience with them. I highly recommend using this company, great track record, great communication, and incredible work ethics!

So.... Happy I Hired Joel :)

After interviewing several contractors and receiving several bids, I selected Joel to do the work I needed. Their pricing was in-line with the other bids I received, but their understanding of my ideas, willingness to respond to all of my questions, and openness was superior to all other contractors I interviewed. In addition, I go for contractor whose prices fall in line with the others, as I have found that contractors with the lowest price often offer the lowest level of service, quality, and workmanship. Lol, funny thing is I was thinking Joel & Co. Construction would be the highest priced, but surprisingly their bid was smack in the middle. Their work was performed when it was planned and how it was intended to come out. Everyone in the crew did an excellent job and I felt totally confortable having them in my home. I finally found a good contractor that I will use more then once.

Joel & Co Construction is the best in the business

Our drainage system for our house needed to be replaced due to a large tree we have in the front yard. The trees root badly cracked the main drainage pipe and was giving us issues with the plumbing. We called two plumbers that we found here on Kudzu for an estimate. One plumber quoted us $5,200. and the other was wanting $7,000. for a 4” pipe that was only 8’ long “are these guys crazy”. I noticed a sign for Joel & Co Construction next door; they were installing a new driveway. I met the owner Joel and talked to him about my situation. Joel said since he still has his trenching equipment next door he would do our project for almost half off including permits (which both plumbers said I didn’t really need). We ended up changing out about 15’ of old drainage pipe for half the price with Joel & Co. Construction. This company is a rare find! Give them a call! You’ll be happy you did!

Best Contractor in town

Joe & Co Construction was referred to us by others in the neighborhood a few months ago after having their homes remodeled. They were right about this contractor. They were easy to deal with, stuck to the price, completed the project on time, with little to no inconvenience to our hectic schedule, and did top quality work. We would definitely recommend them to others and will use them again for our future projects.
