Welcome to Elevate Builds

Elevate Builds—formerly City Construction—has been providing top-notch service for the construction and development needs of the greater metropolitan San Francisco Bay Area since 2012. Elevate Builds was developed in partnership with licensed contractor Steven Taylor, who has been completing projects in the Los Angeles metropolitan area since the late 1980’s. Building from this knowledge, Elevate Builds has completed projects and established a substantial reputation across the state of California.

Our company ethos is to first serve the client and the community, and with this in mind, every partnership we establish and every project we take on is built upon three cornerstones: Quality, Hard Work and Trust.

At Elevate Builds, we bring decades of combined experience together with forward-thinking strategy to create a customer experience that’s second to none.

After meeting with a few very pushy competitors, I was completely & utterly relieved to meet Carlos, and his project manager Mary. They listened to my needs, understood my vision and were VERY responsive to every last one of my inquiries throughout the process for my kitchen remodel. I was most impressed with the quick response, total professionalism and personalized customer service I received working with their entire team. Carlos provided me a very detailed proposal, worked with me on pricing and made sure to let me know of any changes along the way. It’s so refreshing to find a company on the up and up. LOVING the final outcome and will definitely be using them again when my husband and I are ready to start our bathroom. Thank you Carlos!

Carlos and his crew were amazing. They gave me a quote and stuck to their budget. Even though the demolition took longer than anticipated because of the root system in our front and because the concrete had granite aggregate in it which made it harder, Carlos honored his original quote to us. His crew worked hard and did very high quality work. Carlos came back to the house once the job was done to make sure everything was to our liking. I mentioned the car was scraping on the bottom of the driveway (which was not in scope for his crew) and he fixed it within a week. Great quality, good customer service, honest hard working and friendly crew. I have a lot more work that needs to be done around the house and will be calling Carlos again.
