Michael Rex Associates"Based on working together on many projects over many years, I’m happy to say that Elkington Building Company is often our first choice of Contractors to recommend to our Clients. This is because they are simply among the best. If you want a builder whom you can trust and upon whom you can fully depend to provide a well-organized and thoughtfully executed project, select Chris, Daniel and their hardworking crew. Elkington Building Company’s jobs always go smoothly and produce stunning results."

High quality work that came in exactly on time and exactly on budget with easy, clear communication and without disputes — I don't think you can ask for more than that on a major construction project.   Chris, Danny and their crew were always extraordinarily polite and professional — really a pleasure to have around.   My neighbors (who you would expect to be annoyed with six months of construction outside their windows) even commented on how polite and accommodating they always were and how neat the job-site always was.    My home is a 1900 Victorian cottage and I was afraid that the new construction would look out of place with the older parts of the home, but these guys clearly love and understand old houses.   They carefully salvaged and restored everything they could (from the original redwood trim to old hinges and door knobs) and made sure all details in the new contraction matched the classic details of the old construction – from the beadboard pattern on the walls to the detailed framing around the exterior windows.   I am just delighted with how everything turned out.

We hired Elkington Building Company in 2014 / 2015 to complete the extensive remodel of our Sausalito home. The remodel was more like building a new house since the home had been remodeled so many times in the past by unlicensed contractors. Elkington Building Co. had to go back and redo foundation, bedrooms and bathrooms, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, flooring, decks and skylights. Chris and Daniel proved to be an excellent choice for our project with years of experience in complicated projects such as ours. We would definitely use Elkington Building Company for any additional construction projects in the future. Chris and Daniel are very easy to work with and with their insight, resources and contacts made the project run smoothly. I would highly recommend Elkington Building Company to anyone looking to hire a contractor.

If you are considering a contractor for a small or large project Chris, Daniel and the entire Elkington Building Company team is the professional company you want to hire for this important decision.

They are easy to work with, very personable and good communicators. They keep a neat and clean job site, and have a good attention to detail.  They love what they do and take pride in their work. They have worked in many of the towns in Southern Marin and have good relationships with the city staff and building inspectors. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a fair, honest, reliable and high quality building contractor."

Chris and Dan came to me with a recommendation that they were long established, did high quality work and would likely be around for a while. My experience fully supports that reputation. Together we undertook a patio deck repair that turned into a re-build. They employed first rate sub-contractors e.g. for the water proofing and laying of the stone work, used top quality materials, liaised with city on permits seamlessly, collaborated with and I believe earned the respect of my architect – all done with first rate communications and response times, no matter how difficult the wrench thrown in the path of the project. I recommend Elkington Building Co. without hesitation.

I have employed Elkington Building Company for several projects over the years. Chris and Daniel are the best; fifth generation local contractors who love their work and are dedicated to the community where they live and work.  Their high standards and fine craftsmanship reflect their commitment to providing a quality product at a reasonable price.    Elkington Building Company has always made me believe that my happiness with my building project is their top priority.  They have always listened to what I want and determined the best and most cost-effective way to achieve it.  It is clear to me that they want me to love the finished product; and I always have.  They complete projects in a timely manner while maintaining a tidy work space.  

Chris and Daniel have always treated me with utmost respect.  Living in your home while it is being remodeled is challenging and somewhat of an invasion of privacy; however, when it was Chris and Daniel doing the work, I always looked  of forward to seeing them (and actually dreaded the project ending, knowing that I wouldn't be seeing them).  They are kind, thoughtful, fun and funny; they are family men, members of five generations of contractors who have volunteered to make our community a better place to live.  They are gems and I consider them like family.  They are truly a joy to work with.

The Elkington Building Company has been the contractor on a number of residential projects for which I have been the designing engineer. They are a first class operation and produce quality workmanship. Their crew is efficient and professional and never shy away from difficult jobs. They make my job easy.

The Elkingtons poured a solid foundation! Also, our neighbors appreciated that the Elkingtons were courteous, respectful and sensitive to the trucks, noise and general inconvenience that a house remodel can have on the surrounding community.
