About Us

For several decades as a Berkeley general contractor the company's orientation was the restoration of Craftsman Style buildings, which then evolved into more specialized trades working with Slate, Copper, and Clay Tile roofing and architectural metals and solar. We have built some of the largest and most architecturally integrated solar rays in the state of California.
