Boyd and Sons completed a large remodel on our home in early 2015. After one meeting with Phil and his son Nick, we knew we wanted them to build our addition. Phil and Nick came up with practical solutions for the floor plan and building design. We are so happy with the results of our remodel. Boyd and Sons added approximately 1100 square feet of living space including a laundry room, master suite, huge new living space, and a new 2 car garage. The job was completed within the time frame we originally agreed upon. We have worked with a few other contractors locally over the last 15 years and we think that Boyd and Sons is by far the highest quality contractor that we’ve worked with.
Nick and his crew take pride in their work and are true craftsmen. We really appreciate the finish carpentry areas where the team went above and beyond to give our house a hand-crafted custom feel. Our highest level endorsement is for the Boyds’ customer service and integrity. They recommended smart upgrades, didn’t oversell us on things we didn’t need, phased the job to meet our budget, negotiated on our behalf, and improved on our ideas. Our whole family loves our remodeled house. We would work with the Boyds again in a heartbeat.

We are incredibly happy with the finished product of our remodel/addition. The entire process of working with Phil and Nick on the project was easy and informative. From the initial stage of communicating our vision and working through several design options that would best meet our needs, the Boyd’s gained our trust. They proved themselves in the quality of their work and commitment to their craft. They also served as extremely valuable resources in suggesting different trades people; from custom cabinet makers to concrete artists that could fulfill our design vision. They deployed a skilled team on our project and met our timeline needs. Their input and advice throughout the process was incredibly meaningful and allowed us to achieve our goals for the project and ultimately turn our dream into a reality. The Boyd’s were a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with them on future projects.
It is not often that your plans turn out much better than you expected but that is certainly the case with our Boyd and Sons constructed deck and fence. We could not be more pleased with the results of your professional efforts. From our initial ideas and requirements, you added your design and construction expertise to create a stunning outdoor living area that previously was neglected and unused.
Our friends and family are amazed at the transformation you have created and now love spending time outside “on the deck”. I appreciated meeting each of your hard working team members who were respectful and professional in every way while working to the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality.
My frequent updates on the project status and request for input on all decisions made me feel very comfortable throughout the project. I quickly became dependent upon Nick for his keen sense of design and his recommendations certainly maximized both the functionality and final appearance of the project. We will certainly call Boyd and Sons for our future construction projects and can confidently recommend you to others. Thanks for a job WELL DONE!

The Sequoia Retreat Center has employed Boyd and Sons Construction on a variety of projects. We could not be happier with their work. They are professional, fair, creative, and are master craftsman. I highly recommend Boyd and Sons Construction.

The construction Nick Boyd did for me exceeded my expectations. It set a standard that will be impossible for any other contractor to meet in the future. On second thought, I’d never have anyone but him do work for me in the future. The work was efficient, meticulous and beautiful. He built a storage facility that should have been nothing more than utilitarian and at best unnoticeable, but made a few suggestions and transformed it into the most beautiful structure on my property.
It looks like a French country villa. One of the other contractors who bid on the project came by, looked over the work and said, “I could never have done a job like that.” And the most important thing that Nick did was absorb all the psychic stress of the project. On several occasions, when those inevitable but unexpected roadblocks arose with the county, Nick resolved them first and told me about them later. He made the whole project worry free.

When my wife and I decided to do our remodel six years ago we interviewed many contractors in Santa Cruz county. Of those interviewed, only Phil and his sons made us feel like they would take on our project and treat it as if it were their own home being remodeled.
Phil and his sons did a fabulous job on our remodel adding more value and pride to our home then you could imagine.
As a testament to Phil’s workmanship, some 3 years later we refinanced our loan as did many when interest rates fell to all time lows. I asked the home inspector prior to him leaving “I know you can’t put a number on what our home will be valued at but if you could ballpark it.” He said to me “this is one of the best remodeled homes I’ve seen in years and wouldn’t hesitate to value it at the high end of the scale” he added “yeah, you have a very well built home here and its worth every bit of $. I called Phil that day to extend my gratitude for a job well done. Thanks guys for the awesome job!

What can we say about this crew...family business, responsive, respectful, clean, timely, quality work, detail oriented, and helpful when making the big decisions. Basically everything you would hope to find in a contractor.
We heard about stresses involved with a remodel or construction of a home, working with Nick and Phil really helped lighten that load. We were on a tight budget and under time constraints and they delivered in less time as expected and on budget. Yes, on time and on budget!
Sure there are plenty of qualified/capable contractors out there but why even look. Phil, Nick, Mike, Shane, Thomas, AJ, Marshall and everyone that helped make this happen, thank you guys so much for your commitment, coordination and quality work.

When we found this property we thought we could make something special from it. We were so lucky to find the Boyd family. They saw our vision and and understood our dream.
It was a pleasure working with the whole team. Their energy was positive from start to finish.
They kept our budget in mind and gave us the most competent and professional advice as to how to proceed. Their skill is world class to the last details. We now have more than what we wished for and so many wonderful memories of how it was made.

Our experience with Boyd and Sons’ construction during our remodel was fantastic, to say the least.
When we first met with them, we had just a vague plan for updating the kitchen and bathrooms in our 20-year old home. During subsequent meetings, they worked with us to formulate a solid plan that we were comfortable with.
Throughout the construction process, we worked with Nick and his team, who guided us every step of the way. They took multiple, major changes (initiated by us) in stride, and saved us more than once with on-the-fly design input. Nick and his team helped us realize our dream, when we didn’t even know what that dream was!
