Here are what dozens of overjoyed customers have to say..

Jared Lewis Construction remodeled our kitchen and master bedroom and bath. Throughout the project, Jared was responsive and listened to our needs. He tried to stay within our project budget, even when unexpected issues came up.

Alan S.

This was the first major remodel project we've ever done and it went more smoothly than I imagined. It was tough living out of one bathroom and only our three bedrooms while the entire kitchen/living room area was being worked on, but Jared and his crew made it as painless as possible. Our family couldn't be happier with our brand new kitchen and guest bathroom and wouldn't hesitate to call Jared for our next big project!

Mike D.

Jared and his team remodeled our kitchen, living room and bathroom. He was very honest from the beginning and stayed in great communication throughout the process. He worked with us through our budget and we were able to keep track of the progress easily online. They were a great team and worked really hard to get the project done by our deadline. Highly recommend!

Mandy E.

I’m not sure what to say other than FIVE STARS for Jared Lewis AND his crew. This was our first home renovation and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Right off the bat he was phenomenal: Bid was thorough, very professional, ORGANIZED and competitive.

Leanne S.

Jared and his crew did an amazing job remodeling our house. The project required every function - carpentry, plumbing, electrical, drywall, painting, etc. He brought together a great team and managed them expertly. We changed course many times during the project and his team adapted seamlessly. I'm a perfectionist and Jared provided a final product that exceeded my expectations.

Josh E.



Any competent contractor can do what you ask. It may even look beautiful. But will you really love living in the space? For that, it has to be better than beautiful. It has to be just right. That’s why we work hand in hand with you from our first meeting to bring out the best in your vision – every alternative explored, no opportunity overlooked, so in the end your remodeled space is just right. It’s why our customers use words like “easy,” “amazing,” “seamless,” “extremely attentive,” “spectacular” — and yes, “grateful” – to describe their experience with us. If that’s the kind of remodeling experience you want, let’s talk.

Take the Mystery Out of Santa Cruz Remodeling in 4 Main Ways With “Design-Build”

What does “Design-Build” mean to us?

The design phase is fully integrated into our project management, giving you a seamless transition from vision to design to execution. We start by learning about your needs, developing ideas, and iterating to capture exactly what you have in mind. Only when we’ve got it right do we move on to the next phase.

Our design-build process takes the mystery out of the timing that remodeling projects take, improving your outcomes and the experience you have along the way by adhering to the following four tenets for our clients: 

1.) Superior Communication

Coordinated design and development from Day 1 means that your final design will match what you envision – no need to compromise or cut corners. Questions and concerns go to the right person right away and you never have to wait for outside personnel to “get around” to you. Consolidated project management makes it a certainty you have access to your project manager by phone, email, or face-to-face.

2.) Rock-Solid Accountability

Your home is our top priority, and we treat your property with respect from beginning to end. With just one company delivering every aspect of your design-build project, you can rest easy knowing the highest level of professionalism is always followed.

We bring all equipment necessary and fully clean out waste before we call the job "done". If there’s ever an issue, we take full corrective action right away.

3.) Greater Cost-Efficiency

With Lewis Design Build Remodel, “on time and on budget” isn’t just a pleasant idea – it’s our objective 100% of the time. Everyone on our team knows your budget, the timeline, and their role in making it all happen. If an unexpected cost arises, you’ll always be informed before you pay a single cent.

Continuous communication makes the process faster, and all changes are handled by the best person for the job.

4.) Unbeatable Time Savings

Many remodeling firms let weeks or even months slip by as they wait for outside contractors, sit on your ideas without response, or cite outside issues like the weather.

Our years of focused design-build experience ensure our timelines are dependable and backed by instant communication. It all comes together so you get the quality craftsmanship you deserve in the timeframe you expect.
