“An absolute unicorn in the construction world”
“Payman and his team pretty much re-built our house from the ground up, did an absolutely impeccable job, and if you can believe it finished ahead of the timeline.
Payman and his company is an absolute unicorn in the construction world. They work at warp speed, take full ownership of every part of the construction process and deliver just exceptional, high-quality, and flawless work. Everyone we met that worked with Payman was warm, polite, and helpful.
We are so grateful to him and his team for everything they did to make what could have been a very painful process completely painless.”
“Very professional team!”
“Very professional team! They did a great job with remodeling of our house and finished the project as promised, even one week earlier. Payman is a very caring, detail oriented, reliable individual with brilliant ideas. Subcontractors were very professional as well.
I highly recommend them to everybody.”
“It was a small project by their standards, but they paid as much attention to my project as they would to a larger one”
“Bay Area Design & Construction just completed converting my lower level into an ADU. It was a small project by their standards, but they paid as much attention to my project as they would to a larger one. Payman cares about the details and wants to do the job right. He’s also very good at lining up the work, there was barely a day when something wasn’t getting done, and we finished two weeks ahead of schedule.
I would highly recommend them and would hire them again!”
“Payman and his team are competent, solutions focused and they move quickly on the project”
“We’ve used Bay Area Design and Construction for 5 projects (including a complete overhaul of a 4000 Sq foot home).
Payman and his team are competent, solutions focused and they move quickly on the project. They stand behind their work and can give you some creative ideas. Bring your own design or work with their preferred suppliers to create your vision.
I’ve also referred them to many people including my 80 year old mother; they did 2 of her bathrooms.”
“This was the first time I actually enjoyed working with a contractor.”
If I could give Bay Area Design and Construction six stars, I would. This was the first time I actually enjoyed working with a contractor – Payman and the rest of the team were a pleasure to work with. We did a major remodeling work on our house – completely redid four bathrooms, kitchen, two fireplaces in family and living rooms, floors, tons of plumbing and electrical, all paint and just about everything else.
I could go on and on about the quality of work, but just look at the pictures – everyone said that’s the best-looking job they ever saw – both the craftsmanship and the way everything turned out. That’s the #1 thing that, I believe, sets them apart from others – their folks and people they bring are true craftsman that do an impeccable job – tile and kitchen surfaces, carpentry, floors, and everything else were done incredibly well.
Another positive was the way they handled complications that inevitably happen during any large project – nothing ever goes 100% according to the plan, and no large and complex task is ever 100% perfect on the very first attempt. There was nothing major, but there were minor hiccups, scheduling complexities because of the COVID and supply chain issues, we changed our minds here and there (I suppose everyone does occasionally) – they handled everything with ease and utmost professionalism. That is what I liked about Payman the most – he honestly wanted to do the right thing and make us happy, which is a rarity. I would definitely recommend and use them again!
“Payman and his team did an amazing job throughout the entirety of the project”
“Adding another 5-Star review for Payman and Bay Area Design & Construction. We did a demo and rebuild of our house, and Payman and his team did an amazing job throughout the entirety of the project.
We interviewed a lot of contractors before we decided to go with Payman. A few things which set him apart from the other contractors we talked to were: 1) How honest and upfront he was about the details of the construction, possible issues and cost overruns. 2) The quality and attention to detail he had in his past projects (we were able to see the houses for one of his previous clients, and another new construction he was selling).
As the project started, Payman was really efficient at managing the project and communicating the details and deadlines. We had a weekly meeting with him to discuss progress, any issues which came up and also a list of decisions he needed from us to make sure the project stayed on track. He is also always reachable and available to answer any questions.
His crew was also always professional and courteous and Payman made sure he dealt with the subcontractors so we didn’t have to worry about dealing with multiple people. He has good connections and recommendations for various vendors, which helped us select a lot of premium finishes at a discount.
After the house was done and we moved in, Payman was always responsive and quick in resolving any issues which came up … and he went above and beyond at times when he wasn’t really required to.
I will highly recommend Payman and his team and if we ever did another construction or remodel project, we would go with him again!!”
“Because of the ease in working with Bay Area Design, we hired them for a second project ”
“We hired Bay Area Design to do a complete interior gut and remodel for my parents’ home. Payman and his team are pleasant to work with it and take the time to understand the customer’s point of view. More importantly they work with you to offer solutions when at a crossroad.
The team also makes every effort to stay within the timeline of the project. His team shows up on time and are easy to communicate with.
Because of the ease in working with Bay Area Design, we hired them for a second project that involved our home. We definitely recommend Bay Area Design & Construction.”
“The main strength of him and his team was their ability to stay on-schedule and complete the project when promised”
Payman and his team did an amazing job for our whole home renovation and addition. He and his team worked very closely with us on every detail from design, project planning, building, materials and finishes. They were always very responsive and maintained open lines of communication to ensure we were happy with each decision and step of the project. The main strength of him and his team was their ability to stay on-schedule and complete the project when promised. [We] highly recommend Payman and his team for home renovation projects.”
“He took a Cape Cod style home and transformed it into a beautiful transitional/modern home”
We cannot thank Payman and his team at Bay Area Design & Construction enough for an outstanding remodel job on our house. His team brought our dreams to reality. He took a Cape Cod style home and transformed it into a beautiful transitional/modern home. We are so happy with the remodel.
Payman is trust worthy and fair with his quotes. During our remodel process Payman and his team established weekly meetings to help us understand progress and next steps. This really helped us plan and procure materials during the 2021 supply chain issues. Our remodel included expanding and remodeling of our kitchen, adding a new bathroom, remodeling an existing bathroom, new floors, new staircase, trims, doors and windows. He also completed our remodel well before the expected date. Can’t thank Payman and his team enough.
“Thank you Payman and team for giving us our dream home”
“It was the second time that we worked with Payman, however; this time our remodel was a major [one] almost to the point of rebuilding our house.
Payman is a reliable and trusted contractor and you can have peace in mind that your work will be done with the highest quality and no cutting corners. Payman’s attention to details is superb.
We had a few situations that we couldn’t think of a solution and Payman came up with the solutions that were not only practical but also very nice regarding the finishes.
Payman’s crew are very cordial and knowledgeable and again very trusted. His main key people are experts in what they are doing.
If we come up with another project, we don’t look anywhere else and go straight to Payman and Bay Area Design and Construction. Thank you Payman and team for giving us our dream home.”
“Payman is responsive, meticulous, and solution/customer-oriented”
“After our initial consultation with Payman, we knew we wanted to work with him on this project. Payman is responsive, meticulous, and solution/customer-oriented, and working with him gives me such peace of mind through what is typically an anxiety-inducing process.
Each member of his team and his recommended partners were also great and worked extremely hard to deliver our remodeled house back to us 2 weeks ahead of schedule.
We’ve always heard nightmare stories from our friends and families who have gone through the remodeling process, so we feel extremely grateful and lucky to have found Bay Area Design & Construction. Hire them for your next project – you won’t regret it!”
“Payman plans and sequences the work of his various teams very efficiently”
After months of exploring, discussing and reviewing various companies, we selected Payman as the contractor for our home remodel project. We were adding 50% more area to our existing home with new bed/bath/family rooms, upgrading an existing bathroom, removing a brick fireplace and a few other smaller things. Since week 3 of our 20-week project, we have been referring him to any friend who was looking for a contractor. Here are the things we would like to highlight for what we got (and judging by so many reviews online, what you will get too):
Payman walked the talk every step of the way that got us comfortable that he is doing the right thing by us, and in the right way. One example: We had inadvertently given an extra weekly payment check to him. It may have probably been months, if at all, for us to have noticed it. However, Payman proactively reached out to us and cleared this up with us.
Our project was happening in the middle of the pandemic with all the supply chain challenges. Windows needing 4 months, and a door with 6 months lead time are just a couple of examples. Payman’s anticipation of the challenges and pushing us – for example – to order the doors and windows on Day 1 after we got the city permits – was much needed (If he tells you to get something by a date, please do it; else, you will be the one gating your project; not him!).
Payman plans and sequences the work of his various teams very efficiently. He got us so used to having someone at work in our house that the few days where it was silent felt very odd even it was to wait for city inspectors, or materials to arrive etc
We moved into our home within 1 week of the committed time; and even that delay was not because of Payman, but because of delays in our finished materials coming in etc.
Payman is super responsive to communication via email, text and in person. We cannot recollect any big or small situations where he did not get back to us within a day.
The weekly in-person meetings really do work well. If you are well prepared with your list of things to discuss, it will help you (he will always come with his list and be prepared).
Overall – as Payman himself will tell you – he is not the cheapest contractor but he is also not on the high side of costs. After reviewing a few quotes, we felt his quote stayed true to what he said.
‘Change orders are where contractors make their profits’ – this is what we had heard time and again from many people. Over the course of all the change orders that needed to be completed, we found Payman’s quotes to be consistently fair and reasonable.
All of the above would mean nothing if the quality of work was not good quality. And this is an area where Payman’s team really excels in delivering very high-quality work.
“I was so impressed with your dedicated/hardworking team and project planning”
“THANK YOU Payman (Bay Area Design and Construction) for an OUTSTANDING remodeling job in my townhouse. I was so impressed with your dedicated/hardworking team and project planning from day one till the completion date.
You are very patient and you make sure your client needs/concerns are ALL addressed in a timely fashion. Your many years of experience and expertise truly reflected in all phases of the project.
Customers are always looking for a trusted contractor, peace of mind during the project and high quality outcome. You accomplished ALL. Looking forward to working with you in the future.”
“Our end product is better than we imagined”
“We used Payman (owner of Bay Area Design) for a large house remodel and extension in the middle of the pandemic in 2021.
Payman impressed us from the start because he gave us so much details and information to think about in our very first meeting and he was extremely knowledgeable about the city codes, what would work and what makes sense etc. Our interactions with him was excellent at each stage of the project from planning to execution. Our end product is better than we imagined.
Payman was great also in advising us on what additions make sense and what might not really be good bang for our bucks. I personally appreciated this a lot because it meant that he was watching out for our interests (he would have made more money just saying yes to all the extras we wanted!).
The project was completed on time, which is a miracle even under normal circumstances, let alone a pandemic with supply chain issues and it was not way over budget (except for add ons that we wanted).
Overall, a great experience. So glad we went with him.”
“We were thrilled with the final result – the remodel turned out better than I could have expected”
“We used Bay Area Design & Construction for a bathroom remodel and were absolutely thrilled with the results. We were referred to them by a friend, who had a great remodeling experience as well. This was our first remodeling experience, so we were apprehensive.
Payman and his team walked us through the project and answered our many questions informatively and patiently. We had obtained three quotes before choosing their company; not only did theirs end up being the lowest, but they also seemed the most experienced.
They were easy to communicate and work with, and came in on time and within budget (with the exception of upgrades that we chose for ourselves).
We were thrilled with the final result – the remodel turned out better than I could have expected.
We highly recommend Bay Area Design & Construction and will definitely use them again for future projects.”
“Payman and his team managed to find a solution for the unexpected issues”
Payman and his team did an extensive renovation in our house. They were really professional and finished the job in the original time planned. Our house is a 100 year old house, with different issues and challenges. Payman and his team managed to find a solution for the unexpected issues that were found during the construction. We are really happy with the results and quality of the work.
