I have used Paul for several projects over the past 10 years and would recommend him without hesitation. We met when I, in exasperation, had fired my previous 4 contractors for poor quality, overcharges and poor rapport with my Berkeley Inspector. Paul came in, did several complex projects, including a several story deck and structural upgrade, completed everything under budget and on time and impressed my Inspector, thank God.
He is cutting edge with technology and best practices. Also always available for a question by phone or email.
Do yourself a favor and talk to Paul before you make your final decision.

I bought a home w/ literally a tree through the roof (it was foreclosed). The 2011 rainy season was at its peak when I finally got connected to Paul. He was the most helpful, honest, and supremely knowledgeable contractor I met after having screened bids from from over 10 GCs. He took the time to walk through and explain all phases of construction, and worked with me when I wanted to find more cost-effective solutions. His work is impeccable as well as timely -- he got that leaky roof up within 2 weeks of meeting! He went on to pour a new basement foundation, reinforce structural beams in a sinking corner of the house, and built a bath addition, amongst many other repairs in my "fixer." I can recommend Paul and his team w/out reservation.

We looked for a good contractor far and wide and couldn't be happier we found Acme. Paul's crew always showed up on time and went the extra mile. Paul kept me really well informed along the way to with access to a spreadsheet with a lot of detail. He was right on about the costs of things and even provided me a few freebees. On the day of his first meeting he even got his engineer over *while* we were talking to look at our problem. I liked all the subs he suggested and he saved us a ton of money and time. I know remodeling can be expensive and stressful, but consider Acme and you may find it a lot less painful a process!

In the dark, bewildering world of home remodeling, where you can seldom trust a contractor's word, Paul is a shining beacon.

As a new, 1st-time home buyer of a 133 year old Oakland house, Acme Builders has proved to be an invaluable resource. Paul's friendly and generous demeanor helped guide me through the grueling process when I otherwise may have failed. In addition to being consistently quick, responsive, & thorough, Acme brings insider experience to rehabilitating older homes. Paul shared his personal contacts deep in the hall of records that proved to be gems buried in the sand and has proven his ability to successfully navigate the awkward & restrictive contractor time lines required by 203K constructions loan consultants. I look forward to working with Acme again!

We asked Acme Builders to rebuild our failing two story deck. we had to wait awhile for permitting and an opening in the schedule but the deck that Acme built was well worth the wait. Paul and company are master builders and very knowledgeable in what will work and what won't work. Paul worked very diligently to guide us through the process from design to completion and he stuck to budget- with no surprises- keeping us updated all along the way.

Paul assisted me in preparing an income property in San Francisco for rental. I was under very tight time deadlines, and Paul responded quickly and accomplished all the work to meet my needs. He and his crew were meticulous in the the work they performed, and left the property spotless. I am pleased to recommend Paul without qualification, and will use him for all my contracting needs. He is the real deal.

Paul and his crew have built two decks for me and have done an excellent job on both. Not only were they the cheapest bid but Paul also spent the most time explaining his process and offering suggestions on how to get the most for my money. They were very timely, actually finishing the job when Paul said they would. I also found Paul very easy to get a hold of whenever I had a question. I'd hire Acme again and highly recommend them to anyone looking for an honest, fair and highly skilled contractor.

Paul and his crew are experienced, reliable, friendly and reasonably priced. They left my house and yard cleaner and in better repair than when they got here. They found a few additional problems that they fixed in addition to the work that was contracted for the same price.

Paul recognized that we couldn't afford to fix everything at once and made reasonable and intelligent decisions on what to fix first and how to keep costs low.

He knows his stuff and is particularly good at restoration of older homes and at using quality materials as efficiently as possible.

Thanks Paul!

We asked Paul to do some earthquake retrofitting.

Paul and I started by consulting with a structural engineer. It was obvious that the two of them talked the same language. From the type and placement of anchor bolts and hold downs to how to tie the rebar for the concrete. Paul knows what he's talking about.

Paul and his crew were great to work with too. Great guys and hard working. They started work as soon as they arrived in the morning and cleaned up before leaving in the evening.

There were no hidden items in the work scope. The cost was just what was bid.

I've already got future projects in mind. I know that I want Paul and his team to do them."

Paul Peczon said all the right things and then backed it all up! His attention to details, knowledge of materials and all around breadth of his skills made every facet of my home remodeling project more pleasant then I thought it could be. Plumbing, carpentry, electrical, hauling and educating me the owner on the do's, don'ts and why not's... thats the kind of contractor every home owner should have and the kind of service I recommend with out any reservations. Acme Builders isn't a household name yet but they will be!
