I hired Mega Builders to to renovate my kitchen and I had an outstanding experience. They are very courteous, very respectful, and above all, very professional. I am completely satisfied with their work and would not hesitate to hire them on my next home remodel.

A coworker suggested I give Mega Builders a call and I'm so glad I followed his advice. We didn’t have a clear idea of what we wanted done with the house, but with our input and Alon's suggestions and the architect's interpretation the end result was not only a stunning plan but one we could afford. During the project there were so many decisions do be made, like which products to select and what colors to choose, but Alon always gave us heads up well in advance so it was manageable. Everything ran like a well oiled machine and I couldn't be happier with the results.

In February of this year my wife and I purchased a 5,000 square foot "fixer" on 1.1 acres in a community that is consistently in the top 5 most affluent cities in the country. The entire city is within the control of an HOA which is in sync with the city. Many of my neighbors are national and international celebrities and performers. I, most certainly am not! I reference this fact because it emphasizes the level of scrutiny and impact that the city and HOA can have on remodeling and planning here. It is not uncommon for planning and permit approvals to take more than a year.
My wife and I have completed nine major remodels over the last 30 years, all progressively more intense and all as an owner-builder. Since this was to be our most challenging project of all, a tear down to exterior studds, plus 1,000 square feet, we decided to go with a “design / build” firm rather than first engaging an architect and then going out for bid to General Contractors. We felt that we could have a greater influence on design development and create an efficiency by using a team to achieve milestones collectively, reducing redundancy and shortening the approval process.
Alon Toker of Mega Builders, has proven to be the right choice and was able to begin work on our project on December 1st, a mere 10 months after we closed escrow! This might sound like a long time to the uninitiated but the fact is that it's is close to miraculous when you consider that the demands of the community make our project closer to a commercial job than residential.
We worked very closely in the initial design stage using 3D drawings, floor plans and elevations drawn by Alon showing various options and making changes along the way. After we completed this creative process, Alon’s team created the requisite plans and took care of obtaining permits. This process involved handling environmental testing and abatement, soils testing and engineering, civil and structural engineering, drafting, fire department coordination and site drainage planning, among many others.
Our contract was in two parts. The first part being “Design” the second part “Build” with no commitment to part two. We were very pleased with the cost of part one, especially since it contained a promise of a sizable discount on part one IF we went with Mega Builders for part two. When the time came and we decided to use Mega Builders for part two, we were so pleased with the quality and effort that we declined the discount! Alon earned the bonus!
As one might imagine, this is a multi-million dollar project so keeping a sharp pencil has been critical in establishing costs within an affordable budget. Alon has worked closely with us and enabled us to save a considerable cost making the project feasible.
It has been only three weeks but, based on years of personal experience, I can already see the “wisdom” of my decision. No effort is wasted and there is no question about the various crews doing what is needed. This is just the start of a job that, with a little luck, will take a full year. I will have more to say along the way but I have no reservations in recommending Alon Toker and Mega Builders.

I must've driven Alon and everybody else crazy with all the change orders I introduced during the work, but he was always patient and priced them very reasonably. The end result is definitely worth all the hard work everyone on the team had put into the project. Our house turned out gorgeous.

A big 'thank you' to Mega Builders and to Alon. We couldn't have done this complicated project without you. From the planning, to dealing with the city, to working with the HOA, to building our beautiful new home, you've managed everything with outmost dedication and attention to detail. The transformation of the old house into this new and vastly improved version is so complete that it's practically a new house. And what's more, we got it build to our exact preferences and within our budget.

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.

Relationship: Colleague Project Date: January 2010 Project Price: more than $100,000 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

After my visit with Alon, I felt comfortable taking a chance on Mega Builders, even before getting fully acquainted with their work. I'm writing this now because that chance paid off in a home that's 100 times more comfortable and livable. They do unbelievable work. After my initial contact with Alon I knew I could put him in charge of the remodeling work around my house. Fixing your home is sometimes a harried experience. But that's not the case with Mega Builders. They're efficient, easy to talk to, and make your life nicer with their outstanding work. Everything is properly installed, fixed, and finished. They're also upfront about costs and time; definitely no curveballs here. This is a company you can trust.
