Here are (excerpts) what our clients have to say:
Robert helped us design and
complete a full remodel of the bathroom on the mezzanine
level of our loft. He added a small walk-in closet to that
The end result is absolutely stunning in the quality and
precision of the work and in the esthetic outcome.
I am now looking for a new home and believe me, few
bathrooms I look at in these completely renovated homes
present with the quality of work Robert produced. I know I
will ask him to help me again in the future. Thank you
Robert for your integrity and talent!

Robert was an incredible
professional to work with. Very clear and transparent,
detailed in our discussions of what needed to be done, and
kept channels of communication open. His bid came in a
little higher than other contractors, BUT literally 100% of
all those other contractors I contacted flaked, proved
unresponsive, gave us slipshod diagnoses, but by contrast
Robert clearly outlined how he came to his bid while being
an absolute professional along the way (part of his bid also
included a very prudent "worst-case scenario" being built
in, which meant that we came in under budget when no
worst-case scenario arose, but meant we had properly
budgeted in case things went bad).
Would highly recommend Extra Care Contractor to anyone, and
I will happily use Rob again for future work.

"During the entire remodeling project, I was on the east
coast and entrusted Robert with the tasks at hand. He
updated me via email every Friday with a progress report
including pictures of work performed. I came back to find --
on time -- my entire condo completed as contracted. The work
was done beautifully and the entire condo was cleaner than
when I left!"
-- Ellie W. San
"Contemplative, even tempered guy with a sense of humor that
comes in handy when encountering unpleasant surprises inside
a ceiling or wall. His expertise in addressing unexpected
problems as part of planned construction, the quality of his
workmanship, and his trustworthiness are why we continue to
use and recommend him.

"Thanks very much for a wonderful job on our new door. The
workmanship is amazing..."
-- Terry G. Oakland
"I've used him twice (two different homes) for work on a
bathroom remodel and a kitchen. His team is superb. The
pricing is competitive (believe me I've talked with dozens
of contractors) and any changes I wanted were done with
clear pricing adjustments. I've recommend him to several
people and we are all very happy with his work. He even
worked on a friends kitchen that another company did badly.
His contracts are clear and pretty standard when it comes to
hiring someone to remodel. I highly recommend him."

"You did beautiful work repairing and replacing my front
steps and front porch this past winter. You planned
carefully, explained things thoroughly, used quality

He is a
real professional with amazing, Swiss-grade skills and
precision. He sweats the details even more than I do... and
I'm a picky, hard-to-please customer.
He has done several projects for us around our house -
everything from hanging heavy, expensive framed artwork
extremely precisely to align with each other to renovating
our guest bathroom. One time he came to reinforce our deck
balcony and ended up spotting and consulting on stress
cracks on a load-bearing wall caused by settling of our
foundation...no task or subject matter is too big or too
small for him!
I strongly recommend him to any person who cares about
quality and wants it done right the first time. It's good to
know craftsmanship and quality still survives in this age of

"Thank you so much for the lovely suite you built for my son
and me. Your exceptional handiwork and attention to detail
have contributed to a very pleasant, comfortable, and
workable space for the two of us to enjoy for years to come.
I also want to thank you for always keeping me aware of the
progress and cost of the job. You explained everything along
the way in detail and you always took my concerns and ideas
-- Angela "Princess
Jasmine" K. Piedmont
"As a long-time client, I wish to both vouch for his skills
as a handy man (that is as an electrician, plumber,
carpenter and tile setter, among his other capabilities) and
his general intelligence, competence and common sense
(surely an uncommon quality today). He has performed work
employing each of these skill-sets and has also conducted
research for me that has yielded thoughtful, innovative
solutions to complex problems..."
-- Robert .A. Pacifica
"He is a perfectionist... But don't let that give you the
idea that he isn't flexible. While he offered me guidance on
much about the fixtures and design of the bathroom, he also
listened to my ideas and choices. I appreciated his ability
to help me make choices as well as his ability to work with
the ones I had made. He'll be back the next time I have work
to be done."
-- Ron M. San
"I am an architect in the East Bay, and I have worked with
him on a number of projects. He is a very skilled craftsman
and does exceptional work. He is great at finding solutions
to lots of different problems, and he does so with good
design in mind. He is clear, thorough, on time and reliable.
-- Kate S. Berkeley
A contractor with Swiss precision (unsurprising, as he
is from Switzerland). He's done numerous amazing jobs for us over
the last year, including building a beautiful room in our attic;
creating gorgeous built-in cabinets and counters for our kitchen;
and too-numerous-to-count small jobs like installing outlets, locks,
sinks, gates, etc. He is the rare contractor willing to do small
jobs in addition to larger projects. Robert is fully licensed, has
incredible attention to detail, is capable of doing all aspects of
jobs, and bringing in qualified and courteous subcontractors when
needed. I have recommended him to several friends and wholeheartedly
recommend him to you!?
