We had a major remodel done that included a large second floor addition and a complete makeover of our home. We liked how Alon approached and helped us balance the issues of needs, wants and budget and we were very comfortable with him personally and felt assured by his knowledge and professionalism.
The design exceeded our expectations and the fact that it was within our budget was a welcome surprise. We cannot be happier with the result. As Alon repeatedly promised, the work was completed on time and on budget and our home looks better than we hoped.
We give Mega Builders a 5-Star recommendation!

Mega Builders is professional and easy to work with. I would trust them to work on any construction project at the house. They work smart and clean and do high quality work. It is an honest, dependable and quality company. They did several major remodeling projects including doors, windows and a lot more. I would recommend them highly and plan to use them again.

I hired MegaBuilders to do some major remodeling work to my house. They remodeled my kitchen, 2 bathrooms, removed 1 bathroom and added the extra space to another room. They also upgraded my wooden stair rails to glass rails and put in wooden floors on part of the house . The house was painted inside and outside completely. The results were amazing and much better that I could have imagined. I wished it could have finished a bit faster, but these things take time, specially since some work required permits. Nevertheless, I am very happy with the result and highly recommend Alon and his team.

we've hired Mega Builder as our contractor on our adding additions/renovating project on our single family home ( we pretty much rebuild the whole house.....)
Since this is the first time I am personally involve in any project this size ( well.. I should say, I've never involved in any kind of building project in any size ) . At first, it was pretty scary as I've heard so many things about people having problem on budget controlling, and unable to finish the project in time. but during the pre-construction meetings with Alon from Mega Builder. He provided a detailed list of all possible cost according to our wish list, and the approx. time of the construction. which I gotta say, they were both pretty accurate except there was a week delay on the construction caused by the city Inspector. it was really nothing considering it was originally projected as a 28 weeks project.
although, it was a long project, but I have to admit it was a pleasant experience, especially the result turned out before than i expected

I have had the pleasure to work with Mega Builders on 2 very large, very intricate custom home construction projects. Alon Toker’s work is second to none. As a company, his staff has the ability to implement changes seamlessly on the jobsite when the scope of planning has changed . The craftsmanship and attention to detail is simply amazing, and from my experience as a sub contractor, each team member that I have worked with on his projects responds immediate to questions and details that produces perfect end results.
I highly recommend Mega builders . Maelisa Reed Lighting

Mega Builders are by far the most professional company that have participated in my project. Their knowledge of technical details and how to choose the right technique for installation of various components made a big difference. To that date, every area of the project that they were responsible for is flawless.

Designed and built an extensive remodel of our home in 2004. Work involved moving interior walls, moving windows, earthquake updates, complete new wiring and electric panels, new air conditioning ducts, new flooring, complete new master bath and walk in closet, lighting, etc. We had excellent communication during both design and construction phases. He convinced me to contract with him when he said #1 - your selection of contractor has got to be based on trust, and #2 - he offered a guarantee that he would be finished in 10 weeks from our start date - I did not have to ask for it. He finished in 10 weeks and 3 days of start. There was no bickering at all with changes and cost. Finished within contracted cost. Work was excellent. His crews were diligent, careful, knowlegeable, hard working, & respectful.

Mega Builders is absolutely meticulous and of the highest quality -- even to my perfectionist standards. They seems to know just about everything there is in construction and there seem to be no standard house building techniques... And everyone in Mega Builders are absolutely nice, polite and respectful of owners, children, pets... There are just not enough good things to tell about Mega Builders! Happy As Can Be

To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is to acknowledge the generosity, talent and kindness of Alon Toker, who has helped with the development and construction of the Kids Cancer Connection Family House. Alon has made himself available at all stages of construction to assist with guidance, information, materials and labor. Without his efforts, the KCC Family House may not have become a reality. This home is used primarily to house children with cancer and their families when they come to Los Angeles for treatment. The KCC Family House also provides educational services, social activities and support group meetings for children and parents as well as many other psychosocial services for these deserving families. We really appreciate everything Alon has done as do the many families we host. Kids Cancer Connection is thriving because of the support and commitment of people like Alon and we look forward to working with him again soon. Warmest Wishes,
Enriching the lives of children with cancer.

To any homeowner considering a remodel:
"Have you been considering a remodel for years, but you don't know where to start? Do you want a bigger house,but are afraid to go through the hassle of a remodel? Are you afraid of being taken to the cleaners by a contractor? I have an answer to all of your problems. MEGA BUILDERS. My wife and I had been considering a remodel for years, and after finally deciding to start the project we hired an architect. Dealing with the architect and with the city (plan approval) took much longer than anticipate*. We had very little time to select a contractor and get our house completed by the end of summer (our original goal). After speaking with several contractors, we were concerned that we would not be able to afford the changes we wanted to make (beware of architect's estimates*). Then we met with Alon Toker from Mega Builders. A friend of a friend referred us to Mega Builders. The reference raved about Mega Builders and offered to show us their work. We toured the home and were impressed with the quality of the workmanship and the positive comments the homeowner had about Mega Builders. They met both the homeowners' budget and schedule. Based on our friend's reference, the face that Mega Builders bid was VERY competitive and the fact that they could start immediately, we hired Mega Builders. Mega Builders gave us a 12-week estimate to complete our project. The demolition crew showed up at precisely 8:00 am on May 20th (the day they said they would start), and we were able to move back into our home 13 weeks after completion. The only reason they took one extra week was due to delays in getting routine inspections (the city was understaffed for all of the construction taking place during our project). All change orders were handled fairly, although there were very few changes. Alon helped us clarify any discrepancies on our plans prior to signing the final contract. This helped us avoid making very many changes during the project. We can't say enough about the construction crew who built our house. The foreman was very professional, and took great pride in his work and the work of his crew. He would always get our input when there were questions about the plans, and helped us with some of the many decisions we had to make during the project. Our home turned out better than we expected. Our neighbors all rave about how good it looks. We would definitely use Mega Builders again, and would recommend them to anyone (including friends and family)".
*If we did another remodel project, we would use Mega Builders to do the design portion. Our architect did not do a very good job of designing a remodel that would fit our budget, and was not very timely.

Re: Letter of Recommendation
"Thank you for a most beautiful kitchen!
Even though you came highly recommended and we read great things about you in the Los Angeles Times, we wondered how our project would unfold. When so much depends on the contractor of one's choice, a lot of things can go wrong. We, like all homeowners, had nothing but our faith and trust to guide us. We hoped that the promises made, would be followed by corresponding actions. We also wondered how true, your stated commitment to our satisfaction, would prove to be. Mega you have come through with flying colors! Our kitchen is airy, functional and warm. We enjoy it tremendously, and plan to use it for many more years to come. We would like to extend our thanks to all the good people who took part in this effort. Everyone was cordial and mindful. The crews demonstrated sensitivity to our comfort and well being, and most importantly, all were dedicated professionals and accepted no compromises. Without exception, we can report high commitment to the project and an unwavering dedication to our satisfaction. Kudos again for a job well done, and keep up the good work. There are plenty of homeowners out there in search of an excellent and reliable contractor. We wish all will be fortunate enough to find you. "

RE: LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION
"Thank you for helping us to achieve a truly beautiful addition to our home. From the very start of the process to the finished product, you and your staff were there every step of the way to help us in achieving our vision. You and your design staff were able to listen to our wishes, both spoken and unspoken, and suggest a design that was truly unique, gave us more that we originally thought we wanted, and yet very practical. Now that it is built, we are the envy of all who see it. Although we lived at the house during construction, it was not nearly the horror story that everyone warned us about. We were pleased with the way that your crews showed up to work when you said they would. We were also pleased with the way that most of the changes to the design were accommodated by you without additional cost. For the most part, the costs for the change orders were fair and reasonable. Additionally, we want to especially commend your finish crew for the professional way in which they completed the project. They were indispensable in helping us to design the finish look and feel of the remodel. Not only do we have a beautiful addition, but most importantly, it is both functional and a reflection of our tastes and personality. We would not hesitate to recommend you."
- Very truly yours; S. and J. C. -
"I am writing this letter to let you and your staff know how happy we are to have chosen Mega-Builders. You know how difficult it was for us to "trust" somebody to do our remodel/addition since we were almost involved with a firm who was not even legal. Every aspect of our construction experience with Mega-Builders was a complete joy. You gave us four different plans to choose from (none of which any of the other companies came close to), you started ON TIME, you came EVERY DAY, and you finished AHEAD OF SCHEDULE! All of your workers were polite, hard working, and craftsmen. If we had a question, it was answered. If we had an idea to change something, it was changed. If we wanted something done differently, it was done. Our friends went through a re-model at the same time we did (with a different contractor), and when they came over to our house one day after Church, they were very upset. You see, their contractor had not made a THIRD of the progress you guys had. I told them that when it was raining, you guys came into our house, put up a tarp, and started nailing down a foundation under it! AMAZING! It is so hard to imagine what our house used to look like. It is so beautiful now! Like I said, EVERY aspect was a joy. I thank you Mr. Toker for helping us like you have. You truly care about the people and it's not "just a job" for you, and that shows. Karin, the kids, and I really appreciate you and your company's hard work and commitment to quality. If anybody would like to call me for a reference, please call me at home ###-###-####, or at work ###-###-####. I will (and do) recommend Mega-Builders to anybody thinking of ANY type of construction. Don't even bother with somebody else, believe me, it would be a waste of time."
- Thank you, M.E. -
"It is with the greatest pleasure that Chess and I thank you for the masterful job on our remodel. From start to finish, the project was so filled with pleasant surprises and craftsmanship that we had to pinch ourselves a few times! The master bath ended up more warm and elegant than we even imagined it could be. In this world of cookie-cutter sameness and fast food enterprises, it is good to know that there are perfectionists such as you. The quality of the work, the speed of delivery and the professionalism of each member of your team were gratifying indeed. It took so much of the stress out of the process for both of us. Again, we thank you very much. Under your expert guidance, a longtime dream became reality. You have helped us to create our own personal and private sanctuary. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you again."
