With 514 builds under our belt (that’s a tool belt, of course) and an approval rating of over 95% we think we’ve earned the right to call ourselves experienced, trustworthy, and client-centric. But don’t take our word for it – check out what our customers are saying and then let us know what we can do to add you to the growing list of We Build San Diego family members.
We are so pleased with the four jobs that We Build has done for us: tile floor replacement, a/c install, 7 kWh solar install, and interior repainting. The work was meticulous and the team was skilled, communicative, and respectful. We've got a unique house with a lot of quirks, which required a lot of their time and attention. The team doing the work (Donny, Jace, and others) was a pleasure to have in and around the house and the project manager, Troy, and owner, Dave, were up front about costs, timing, and challenges and worked to minimize all three without sacrificing quality. They use an online project management system to present quotes, collect payments, and delivery daily updates with photos and comments. Questions and issues were handled quickly via text, phone, email, and in person visits, when necessary. We definitely plan to use them for future projects.

We worked with them for several projects and will do all of our major home renovations with them moving forward. They installed our tile (pictured attached) and solar and did an incredible job. Everyone we worked with was knowledgeable and felt like a true partner from start to finish.Donny and Jace were incredibly detail oriented every step of the way and were thoughtful and diligent with their commination. They kept us in the loop throughout their work and allowed us to feel confident that the project was in good hands.Additionally, they provided painters Robby and Robert who also demonstrated world class skill and customer service. We're already eyeing other projects that could use their services.It can be tough finding a contractor you trust to come into your home and build your dream space. Without hesitation, I'd recommend this team to anyone considering any kind of home renovations.

We hired Dave and the team at We Build San Diego to install a new solar system at our home, including Enphase batteries and an off grid switch. From our first meeting, Dave was extremely informative about the process, sizing our system, and designing our installation. We had so many choices to make, and Dave helped us navigate the math of electricity and translate that into the actual benefits and requirements of running our house now and into the planned future. While the City of San Diego is particularly slow with permits, once we were approved, we had a talented crew arrive to install the system. Our installers were quality focused, respectful, and great communicators. In addition, We Build's platform for communication, photos, and finance makes things extremely easy to track. The installation worked perfectly from the moment we threw the switches into test mode, and we were up and running with both SDGE and City permission to operate in just a few days. The team at We Build San Diego stand behind their work and are extremely responsive and patient. We highly recommend them and look forward to hiring them for future work.

We are very happy with We Build San Diego, we hired them to do some remodeling of our home that we just purchased, install new floor, do some demo of a wall and soffit, and install some recess lighting. They did an outstanding job with the aggressive timeline before we had to move in. Dave the owner is very responsive and professional, was patient with us, explained the process and always followed through with our questions. Troy the project manager was super responsive, really kept track of our project and made sure to keep us updated and in the loop of what was happening. The website is very organized, you keep track of who is working in your home, and what they've accomplished for the day. All the workers were very respectful, and really accommodating. We will be using them again in the future for our kitchen remodel.

Dave and the team did a awesome job installing some new solar panels and backup batteries for my home. They dealt with me adding more panels half way through and a faulty piece of equipment from Enphase.I also got them to run an electrical line for an induction cooktop.Super nice workers, they answered all my questions for me as they were working.I highly recommend them!

Outstanding company to do business with ! ! All the people involved from Dave (the owner) , to Troy (project manager) and Jace and Christian (the installers) were professional and thorough. Jace and Christian were on time every day and were a pleasure to work with. Troy made daily visits during the installation to ensure all was going as planned. And by the way, other companies could not match the price. I will continue to recommend We Build San Diego to anyone looking for solar. Chris G.

These guys are amazing! So far I’ve had We Build repair stucco and paint the exterior of my house, replace all the windows and sliding glass doors with dual pane, replace the water heater, HVAC and remodel a bathroom, plus some smaller stuff. As I was listing off everything I wanted to do, Dave (the owner) was great about explaining what was possible, due to the age of my house, and never tried to upsell me on anything I didn’t want or need. All of the employees are very friendly and professional, always showing up on time, wearing a mask, and treating me and my house respectfully. Lane’s attention to detail set my perfectionist mind at ease. Everyone is very knowledgeable, but Donnie in particular really impressed me and I knew that if he was working on something, it would be done right. And Joey and Jace are hard workers that get sh… stuff done 🙂 The foreman for my projects was Troy. He’s a really nice guy and made sure things stayed on schedule and got done right. We did have an issue with a vendor for my shower, and Dave and Troy took care of everything, even through multiple returns due to shipping issues. I now have a shower that I love, and it’s laid out exactly the way I wanted.I’ve already recommended We Build San Diego to multiple people, and will definitely have them come back to remodel my kitchen and another bathroom.

Dave Pollock, CEO and owner of We Build San Diego is the BEST CONTRACTOR I'VE EVER HIRED --- BAR NONE!I was in the market for a solar panel installation. I received 7 quotes through the energy sage website. While all of them followed up through email, or phone calls, they all designed a system by looking at computer software roof data and none of them offered to come to my home to actually survey the roof and my previously installed conduit from the attic to the garage (new construction 3 year old home).Since Palomar Solar had many positive reviews, I contacted them and a salesman came to our house to give his sales pitch with a laptop that displayed glitzy info about solar power consumption and monitoring data. When I mentioned the already installed conduit and offered him access to the attic, he declined and said that locating it and using it would be part of the site survey, AFTER I signed the contract. I said I wanted to know if the conduit could be used BEFORE I signed any contract, to which he offered to send one of their electricians to my home for $300 to find and discern the viability of the conduit. Not satisfied, I discovered We Build San Diego when I stumbled upon a couple of YouTube videos of Enphase battery installations recently completed by We Build SD.I reached out to Dave Pollock and after an initial phone call, he came to my home, crawled up in my attic, found the conduit, surveyed the roof and designed the perfect solar system for me. Where other companies just used my last year's SDG&E consumption data to design a system, only Dave went the extra mile by asking me things about future electricity needs; "Do you plan to own an electric vehicle? Install a workshop, pool or hot tub?"Most of all, I appreciated Dave's honesty and integrity. He patiently answered all my questions clearly and without hesitation or obfuscation. His commitment to excellence and his character are beyond reproach; without hesitation, I have recommended him to several of my neighbors.The solar panel installation by Lane and Christian was flawless and professional; they were prompt and efficient; done in three days including the time it took to "fish" the wire from the attic to the garage through the conduit. I'm convinced that through the diligence of Dave and his crew, they are the only company who would've taken the time and effort to use the installed conduit instead of taking the easy way and run an exterior conduit from the roof to the garage. I appreciated the daily clean-up on the jobsite and follow-through by Dave and Troy to ensure that the permit was moving through the appropriate channels, that the inspector was accompanied up to the roof during the final inspection, and ultimately coordinating with SDG&E for permission to turn the system on.I was also impressed by the "Can-Do" attitude of every employee in Dave's company. Clearly it's a tight knit group whose professionalism and work ethic exceeded all my expectations. I couldn't be happier with my new PV system! But don't take my word for it; give Dave a call and you'll see what I mean.

Outstanding service and top notch technicians. These guys know their business and can handle just about any construction task you may have. Solar, electrical, plumbing or roofing just to name a few things they excel at. Timely service and a friendly get it done way of doing business is the norm! Don't hesitate to call them. Lane and Jace really rocked the last job! Thanks guys....

April 2021Well it has been nearly 2 years since our last remodel (bathroom - see review for that project below) and when it came time to remodel our kitchen, we got some quotes but in the end we decided to go with We Build San Diego for our kitchen remodel!Now that the kitchen has been completed we are pleased that we picked WBSD again to do the work! We got a different crew this time but again the professionalism shown by Lane, Charlie, Jason, Troy were top notch! The crew were extremely punctual, always on time exactly to the minute every morning at 7AM. They work hard days and whenever there was a decision to be made (small or large), they would always call us into the kitchen to ask us how we wanted things done instead of just "assuming" we might like something and just making the decision themselves.The crew were again very respectful of our house, space, and time. Since both my wife and I are working from home these days, they accommodated us when we had meetings or if we had to ask for no loud construction/demolishing noises during our meetings.Periodically over the project Troy the project manager would stop by and make sure everything was in order and if we needed any modifications, requests, suggestions, etc.. he would work with the crew to get it done.The kitchen turned out lovely and we are please with the whole experience again with WBSD! (before/after photos attached!)To be honest, now that the project is over, we are sad to see the crew go (This is how you can tell you made the right choice in selecting the company/people to do the work!). We miss the pizza/mexican lunch parties we had every week with the crew as we sat and got to know them better and a chance to go over any project details with them.I guess the only solution to that is to have WBSD come back out for future projects we have in mind (garage, patio, etc) when the time is right.I would not hesitate to recommend the company if you are looking to do a remodel or have some house renovation needs.May/June 2019After some searching, my wife and I decided to have We Build San Diego redo our master bath. They are a joy to work with. Dave was very flexible with scheduling and worked with us when we had to twice change start dates. He also followed up with us periodically during the project to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The crew are AWESOME, both Justin and Donny were great workers, they showed up on time and most importantly cleaned up after their work at the end of each day. They were very respectful of our property and house and always kept us in the loop on the work done. They have a great work ethic and good personalities and sense of humor. As a bonus, we have a full fledge lemon tree in our back yard with too many lemons, Justin offered to make us a pitcher of his special homemade lemonade! We came home one day to a cold pitcher of EXCELLENT lemonade in our fridge! On top of that he also cleaned up after himself and the kitchen supplies that he used. I would recommend anyone give We Build San Diego a try for any home improvement projects. Ours was a great experience and yours will be too!

We were extremely happy with the solar system installed by We Build San Diego. The owner David Pollock was knowledgeable about the technology, both what best suited our current needs and what the options might be for future changes or expansion. The installers, Cristian and Jayce, were friendly and knowledgeable. At the end of each day, everything was left clean and tidy. The communication was excellent. We had daily updates, with photographs, on the progress of the installation. Questions were readily answered by the owner, the project manager Troy, and the installers. When the project was complete, our clay tile roof was in better shape than before it was started.

We Build San Diego has completed several home improvement projects for me over the past 10 years, including: remodeling my garage into a livable space, installing an attic platform, insulation in my ceiling and south/west walls, all new windows and 2 new doors, repairing/replacing damaged window jambs and sills, new air conditioning system with ductwork, replacing the plumbing in my main bathroom/shower, removing a crumbling brick veneer and planter attached to the front of my house and replacing with a stucco veneer, and most recently rewiring a portion of my house.The reason I keep rehiring them, instead of going elsewhere, is I know they’ll do an excellent job, and complete the job in a timely fashion. Their customer service and attention to detail are impeccable. I know that if I’m not happy with something, they will fix it. They work efficiently and care about their craftsmanship. They were all very respectful during COVID-19.I’m looking forward to doing my next home improvement project with them.

If you're looking for a company that will take care of your home as if it is their own home, We Build San Diego is the company to choose for your home renovation/improvement projects.The entire team is made up of hand-picked professionals who excel in their trades. Dave and Troy run their business with integrity and honesty, and their communication is above and beyond. They are knowledgable and willing to try new projects, and when something does not go to plan (as is always the case with any home project), they are adaptable, quick to adjust and troubleshoot. We have worked with multiple contractors over the years, and We Build San Diego is by far the best we have ever worked with.We can't wait to come up with future projects so that we can get We Build San Diego back in our home as we continue to make our home into a home that reflects who we are. Thank you We Build San Diego for being a part of that for us!

Reading through other postings and must say I echo every positive comment. When we first sat down with Dave, everything was so perfect, I hesitated, thinking, "this guy can't be real." Well, happy to report he is, as is Troy, and every other professional on their highly skilled and creative team. Remodeling our bathroom / shower was something needed, but also dreaded. We made some significant changes, but they were able to blend old with new which left us with a beautiful and cohesive look while staying within our budget. We are so pleased with the beautiful, functional outcome, but just as important to us, we were pleased with the whole process. From the very beginning, Dave truly listened to what we wanted and he communicated honestly and openly about what was realistic, what was not, and what his professional recommendations were. Throughout the entire process, the team communicated with one another and with us. They kept a tight and disciplined schedule and at the end of every day, the only evidence that people had been in and out of the house was the progress made on the project. We work outside of the home and were completely comfortable having the crew come and go. Even with COVID, they stayed on-schedule and within budget. We are truly grateful. We appreciate the whole team and highly recommend them, and will use them again, without hesitation, for any and all future projects.

Quality work. Very professional with great communication. Job turned out better than I envisioned. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you!!

If you are looking for a professional and trust worthy contractor We Build is the go to team. The work was completed on time with excellent workmanship. I loved that all his team introduced themselves and kept me posted of their progress.
21:36 29 Oct 20
Dave and his team installed a new roof, solar system and a high-speed car charger for us. We are thrilled with the quality of the work and their professionalism. Very COVID-safe! We are having them start another home project ASAP; they make the process painless. I’m glad We found them. They did a complete remodel of my friend’s home, and it was stunning. I wouldn’t hesitate to call WeBuild.
21:02 15 Sep 20
Dave came out and fixed my AC from completely non-functioning to ice cold!Being a single female homeowner, is exceptionally important to me to find people that I feel like I can trust. Dave took the time to answer all the questions that I had for him, pointed out another legitimate issue with my home but did not push me to get it fixed immediately, and seems to be exceptionally trustworthy and professional. He got the job done very quickly and I was 100% impressed with the work and professionalism.
20:29 17 Aug 20
We Build is the most professional contractor we have ever used. They were always on time, courteous, and completed quality work above our expectations. They were always happy to answer any questions we had and fix any issues that came up. But the best part is that they do such great work, everything looked excellent when they were finished.I’m very happy to have found a contractor we can rely on, and a company we would gladly use in the future.

Hands down, an amazing experience. Remodeling is stressful no matter how big or small the project. Hard earned money is going into your home and you hope that it will all turn out right. Well, WBSD makes sure that it happens. Dave and his crew were very professional, courteous, and very, very accommodating to our lifestyle. We have 3 young kids under the age of 9 and the entire crew was so sweet to them through the whole process; there were very respectful of my wife and made sure we were happy through the entire process.Inevitably, this is an interactive process and it can be difficult at times when decisions have to be made on the fly. We are total newbies to remodeling, working with contractors, etc. and Dave walked us through every step of the process. He is very particular about who he picks to be on his team and his attention to detail is amazing. Dave was encouraging and practical, all the while stressing his desire to achieve excellence and make sure we got what we wanted; he never talked down to us, treated us as idiots or side-stepped our wishes because he "knew" what was best.There were some hiccups with the some of the design elements (not his fault) and Dave made sure everything worked out; explained all of the impacts to the cost and schedule due to different design directions and was very easy going about modifying the scope of work when necessary. In the end, we are extremely happy with the workmanship, how fast the crew worked, and the genuineness of Dave as well as the crew.We plan on using them again when we have saved up enough for the next phase. No question about it. This is the team to go with. Dave treats the whole process as a partnership - you will be involved and even during the challenging moments, you will appreciate Dave's desire to alleviate as much stress from you as possible. The crew is wonderful and you can feel safe with them if you have any kids.Overall, we definitely recommend them and will be using them again for other projects we have in mind. We were blessed to land the We Build SD team! Our kids still ask when they are coming back, especially some of the crew!Cheers!
21:53 22 Jun 20
Dave the owner is all about integrity and providing a high level of quality and responsiveness throughout the project. We Build uses its own employees in the build process, and it makes the difference as the crews were extremely respectful, responsive, and customer friendly. The end result exceeded expectations. We highly recommend We Build San Diego and would definitely use them again for our next project.

We were in the market for a new kitchen and after interviewing multiple contractors, we chose We Build San Diego to remodel our kitchen. From the beginning, Dave (the owner) was very forthcoming on what could be done for the kitchen. He told me how long it would take and what the investment would be. He answered any and all of my questions that I had and always made me feel like it was ok to ask questions. Remodeling a kitchen is a big endeavor and I wanted to make sure that we did it right.Before beginning the project, we did a pre-construction walk through to make sure that every aspect of the job would be addressed and covered. He mentioned who would be on the job and when to expect the guys. All throughout the project, the guys were prompt, cordial and answered any questions that I might have had. They worked with me throughout every aspect of the remodel. The guys made sure that I knew what was going to happen everyday. If I was unclear about something they would explain it further for me. They also cleaned up after they were done for the day. The other thing that really appealed to me was that the guys acted like it was their kitchen that they were remodeling and not just mine. I love that.After my kitchen was completed, Dave came by and did a final construction walk through to go over any last minute issues. By then there were none. If I had a concern or if there was something that needed additional focus, Dave made sure that his guys knew about it and then would send someone to correct the error. My kitchen is now beautiful and everything I wanted. It has clean lines, more cabinet space and the color scheme is amazing. I am so happy that I chose We Build San Diego to remodel our kitchen. It was the best decision that we ever made. Thank you Dave and the guys for everything.
16:16 04 Jan 20
The workers were extremely helpful and did an incredible job. We were in a very tough situation and We Build San Diego went way above and beyond to be accommodating and helped us be able to move back into our home very speedy manner. All of the work done well exceeds our expectations!
17:37 01 Jan 20
Dave and his crew put solar on my house. He made the process so easy for me, communicated every step of the way and did fast clean work. He is a very smart man that communicates well in a friendly, professional manner. I wish I would have gotten solar sooner! And when I need more work or remodels done on my house I will use and recommend We Build San Diego.
21:11 23 Sep 19
It’s always a bit nerve wracking when deciding who to select for a large project. Our faith in Dave and We Build San Diego was well placed. He explained what he was going to do, when he was going to do it, how much it was going to cost, and what results we could expect. He came through in each area and we couldn’t be happier. He sized our system perfectly; we ran the air conditioner almost 24/7 during August and our net due to SDG&E for that month was $15! Highly recommend Dave and We Build San Diego.
18:52 16 Sep 19
Simply amazing! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Dave and his team have done many projects with me over the years. In fact I was one of his first customers almost 10 years ago. We Build San Diego is extremely reliable, amazing with customer service, and affordably priced. The most recent project we did was a large scale solar installation. I could not be happier! I highly recommend them for any home-improvement need! Five stars! 🤙
01:23 29 Aug 19
We have had an exceptional experience with, and highly recommend WeBuildSanDiego !Their team upgraded our house including; rebuild a 2nd floor balcony, installation of new rock vernier and siding, roof replacement and subsequent installation of a solar electric and air conditioning/heating systems.Dave assembled a great team to make our home improvement a reality. The consistent theme was "make it right".Project leader, Ian was a detail oriented craftsman who listened to our input and concerns while consistently moved the project forward. Under his leadership the team built in quality in as we progressed.The building skills of Troy and Charlie were the foundation of the successful completion of all of the phases of our project.Area specialists Florine (masonry), Donny (HVAC) and Shawn (PV solar) each added their own special expertise, drive for quality and enthusiasm to complete their phases of the project.Compared to other contractor "horror stories", ours has been an "a-typical" home repair/improvement experience. The folks showed up to work on time and prepared to work a full day. Our questions or concerns were immediately addressed and resolved. The consistent theme was we want to "make it right".We are thrilled with end product ! Thanks Dave and Ian's team !

As new homeowners installing solar was a difficult decision. My husband and I went back and forth on it and reached out to various companies for quotes. We ultimately went with We Build San Diego for two key reasons 1) Dave sat down with my husband and explained every aspect of the solar installation/ cost. 2) They had the best price. After our experience we would definitely recommend Dave and We Build San Diego to friends and family.
19:28 25 Aug 19
I cannot give enough praise and say how amazing the “We build San Diego” team is. Dave and his crew built our dream home in Escondido and out of all of the contractors we researched, “We build San Diego” was the only company that thoroughly went over their bid with me line item by line item explaining every detail. Their follow up was superb and they would keep in touch with me constantly throughout the entire process. During construction, Dave would always keep me notified of all updates and the work and quality was nothing short of amazing. As someone who used to work as a foreman in construction myself, I can attest to the quality of their craftsmanship. I re-hired “We build San Diego” for my 5 car garage and even the beginning architecture plans are already amazing. Five stars to “We Build San Diego” and if we could, we’d give them ten. If you are in search of a contractor to build your San Diego home, look no further. Dave is your guy!
02:46 24 Aug 19
All of We Build San Diego’s work is top notch and very professional. Staff has been always honest and trustworthy. Dave was always able to answer any questions and concerns I had which always gave me “peace of mind.” I highly recommend We Build San Diego to anyone. You can not find a better construction company. We Build San Diego is the best of the best!!!!
23:34 23 Aug 19
We've been using WBSD for all of our home renovations over the past 5 years and could not be happier. The renovations have included addition of a second bathroom, expansion of our home living area by 500sf, and a lot of other work both inside and outside. Quotes for work are always highly accurate, with no hidden costs, so we always have confidence that the work will be done well and within the budget we set at the beginning. We recommend WBSD exclusively when anyone asks for a builder!
02:44 24 Jul 19
If you're in San Diego and are looking into solar energy options for your home or business, contact Dave. He's a goldmine of information and will save you money. Highly recommended.
17:05 11 Jul 19
Dave and We Build are my contractors for life. We've done three projects with them - laundry room, kitchen and master bath - and I'll never use anyone else. I've recommended him to friends, which shows the confidence I have in him and his crew: Ian, Sean, Donny, Justin and Troy.
19:05 09 Jul 19
Dave and team were the best!! They we professional, detailed and honest. Pricing was great and they have been a stand up business to work with. I have now used them multiple times and would use them again and again. We have been through a lot of home construction teams and Dave's is the best!!Shawn was also awesome and I swear my kids were ready to have them all move in! We had them build a customer pantry, move our furnace into the attic, add an AC, do solar, roofing... The list goes on and on!Thank you guys! I give my recommendation of you all to everyone!Kelly Bailey
From the minute I first talked to Dave I knew I wanted him to build our home. His attention to detail, his straight forwards approach his leadership with his crew is what makes “We build San Diego” amazing. He did such a great job on our first phase project that I hired him for the second phase of our project, blueprints and all.
David and his crew are amazing! They reworked / updated our newly purchased home in the short timeline we had. So polite and courteous, and open to all of our questions and changes. The workmanship is great. Looking forward to our next project. Recommend David and his crew to anyone!
Wow! Where to begin (or continue) my praise for We Build San Diego. Dave and his crew at We Build San Diego did such a great job with our kitchen work a few years ago, they were my first go-to company when I was looking for more renovation work this time around. Over the past 6-7 weeks, we had some major work done by Dave and his crew from WBSD and it's ALL PICTURE PERFECT! Brand new roof and solar, completely remodeled bathroom, wall to wall new hardwood floors, additional kitchen remodel work, completely upgraded electric, and various odds and ends that we kept adding along the way. Exemplary service, highest quality work - can't say enough good things about WBSD! Star to finish excellence! Thanks, Dave and the WBSD crew. I recommend We Build San Diego with my highest regard - and I'm happy to share more detail, if anyone is interested!
