Here’s what some of our Belmont, CA customers are saying about us:

Someone else started their review by saying "In the world of general contractors, Fred Faber is a unicorn", and I couldn't agree more. When we told the GC who bid our project before Fred we were concerned about having an absentee project manager, he told us "if you are looking for the type of contractor who shows up to the job site every day and unpacks his own tools to work, they don't really exist anymore". They were pretty rude about it too. Well, we met that guy in the next person to bid on our project, Fred from Bay Area Traditional Builders.

He did a bathroom and kitchen remodel in our family home and they both turned out great.

Fred combines experience with honesty and anyone who has experience with contractors knows how difficult that is to find. He also has some of the friendliest and most talented subcontractors working with him. The tile contractor he works with in particular is extremely skilled.

I'm not sure if Fred is still actively working but if he is you won't regret having him bid on your project.

In the world of general contractors, Fred Faber is a unicorn. Hard-working, reasonably priced, stays on schedule, dedicated, and most of all, honest. He didn't BS me, he didn't try to upsell me, and he didn't scare me and make up work to make money off me (unlike other contractors I've worked with.) He did what was necessary with precision and care, and he tried to save me money where he could while guiding me toward choices that will save me money in the long run. You couldn't find a more trustworthy guy to oversee your project. From the moment we started, it was easy with Fred. He knows everything about building, and in my case, knew a lot about old houses. His expertise was invaluable on my project. I knew there was rot in the bathroom, but not the extent. Turned out to be extensive water damage that started in the 1970s. Fred held my hand throughout all the twists and turns of the project, guiding me toward choices that I am beyond thrilled with. My finished bathroom completely exceeded my expectations. It's gorgeous. Not only is Fred "the man", his team is outstanding. Exceptional subcontractors. From Matt at Concept Tiling to Noel at Goodfellow Plumbing to Ed the Paint Guy and his team to the shower door people, DB Glass and Shower Door, to Glen the electrician, everyone who worked at my house felt like family. Except these guys worked their tails off, and produced amazing results. All of them were at the top of their game. When it was time to pick out bathroom fixtures and faucets, Fred sent me to the best places: Decorative Plumbing Supply, Quesco Cabinets, Daltile, and South Bay Marble. All of the people I worked with were smart, kind, and provided excellent customer service. And all of them love Fred. I found Fred through my favorite plumber, Noel Diaz with Goodfellow Plumbing. Noel said that he'd worked with many customers of Fred, and they all said the same thing: "He's so nice." So if you want someone with expertise, talent, and honesty--who is also a super great guy-- look no further than Fred Faber. He's one-of-a-kind. I can't wait to have him remodel my other bathroom, and my kitchen. You can't go wrong with Fred.

Yelp Review

Fred is bidding out a significant retaining wall project for us right now. He has done a couple smaller projects for us too, plus some jobs that required a skilled handyman.

We find Fred extremely knowledgable and skilled. It really seems that he can fix or build anything. Plus, Fred's prices are very reasonable, even more so considering he gets the job done faster than anyone else we have had working on the house One quick example of speed and skill is that within a couple of minutes, Fred figured out an irritating problem with our french door that several other contractor/handyman people could not seem to solve. Fred then fixed it within minutes too and it wasn't even the project he was working on - he just noticed it and knew he could fix it. Fred really is the definition of a handyman.

Fred is also perfectly prompt - and I mean he arrives right on time. Another big plus is that he is very friendly and easy to talk too.
