Starburst Construction - San Jose, CA - Portrait


Starburst Construction has been recreating spaces for homeowners in the San Jose, California area since 1974. Owned by Phil Carey,CR and Cindy Carey, Starburst provides design and construction of new homes and renovation projects. Whether it is a new kitchen, bath, addition or a new home, Starburst uses time tested systems and procedures that makes the process an enjoyable one for homeowners.

"Like most professional builders and remodelers, we want to see a smile on our clients'.. faces when a project is finished," says Phil Carey. "When done properly, the challenge of building a new home or addition, or renovating existing space, can be rewarding and will result in years of enjoyment for our clients."

Read what Starburst clients have to say, review past projects, and then give Starburst Construction a call, or use a convenient online form, to find out how your ideas of new spaces can be accomplished.

Starburst is a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) Cindy Carey is a Board Member and Phil Carey is a Certified Remodeler.

NARI CRs are professional remodelers who provide a full range of remodeling services. To become a CR, candidates must possess skill and knowledge in a broad range of business management and technical skill areas.

Our process begins with the initial call from a homeowner, during which we ask questions that allow us to evaluate the homeowners' scope of work, timetable and availability for a on-site meeting. If there is strong enough interest, we ask the homeowner to fill out our online pre-meeting questionnaire which will help us conduct our initial meeting. A date and time is set when the homeowner(s) are available for approximately two hours to review the scope of the project.

After that meeting, a detailed estimate is prepared. At the next meeting, the estimate is reviewed, adjustments made, followed by drawings that reflect the adjustments.

Once the drawing meets the homeowners' expectations, a formal contract is drafted complete with financial and legal responsibilities for both parties.

Once construction is underway, on-site management team members keep homeowners up-to-date on progress and any issues. If the plans change along the way—and as any homeowner knows who has gone through this process before, ideas occur to homeowners that they didn't consider early on—a change order is agreed upon in writing to eliminate any unexpected expenses.

After the construction phase is complete, a "walk-through" is conducted, whereby any small overlooked item is noted for correction. Upon correction, the project is declared "finished" and Starburst's warranty period takes effect.

Approximately six months after the finish of the project, Starburst staff checks back with the homeowners to be sure they are still pleased with the work, and a request for comments is made.

    I can't think of any other construction company that would have kept to the planned schedule and budget as Starburst did. That, coupled with the quality of the work, should be enough to recommend startburst for any construction project.

    Starburst was a dream to work with. They gut-remodeled our house and did an amazing job. We had our first child during the remodel and Starburst ensured we moved in on time to a beautiful new home. We strongly recommend them and would love to work with Phil, Cindy, Brian, and the team again in the future

    My project is in the early phase. So far, the process has been less painful than I expected it would be and seems to be running smoothly. Everybody I have met so far, who has been connected with Starburst Construction, has been professional, thorough, and easy to work with.

    Neutral on satisfaction - the only crew that cleaned up thoroughly both inside the house and out was the demo crew. All others left the paper-covered hallway and entry dirty and dusty which I had to clean to keep from tracking over the rest of the house. Staff pretty good at letting me know the scheduling of who would be coming each day, plus making sure any questions are answered to my satisfaction.
