Make your dream remodel a reality.
What our clients have to say
After interviewing dozens of contractors, we hired Christian Construction to do a major kitchen remodel and could not be more pleased with the outcome. We were incredibly impressed with Wayne Christian's references. Every client we contacted sang his praises, and now we know why. The quality of his work is outstanding, but what we appreciated most was the clarity of communication, the transparency of billing/costs and his proactive approach. Wayne's deep knowledge and professionalism helped us to avoid some mistakes that we had not considered and his "can-do" attitude helped us achieve our dream kitchen.
I have known and worked with Wayne over the past 5 years and highly recommend him and his company. The quality of his workmanship is consistently of the highest caliber. It is always a pleasure to speak with Wayne's clients and hear about how happy they are to have him on their project. You are in good hands with Wayne!

I’m an interior designer new to the East Bay Area so when it came time to hire a contractor to work on my home I looked for the best. I was referred by a colleague to Wayne of Christian Construction. From the moment I met Wayne I was impressed. He’s down to earth, organized and professional. The work that he and his crew did on my home was done to my high standards. I appreciate that he respected my design concept, asked questions for clarity and offered sound advice. His attention to detail and knowledge is impressive. I was particularly pleased with the labor intensive precision with which he and his team installed a geometric marble backsplash. From plumbing to building, Wayne's work is carried out with pride and skill. I highly recommend Wayne. I know I’ll be calling on him for future client projects.

We hired Christian Construction to renovate our kitchen and prepare floors for new hardwoods in the dining and living rooms. I am completely thrilled with the final product. Our new kitchen is amazing. Wayne delt with many challenges regarding rotting floor joists and uneven floors, his crew work diligently to repair this old house. He communicated with us every step of the way and helped us make finishing decisions. Every thing came out better then I could have imagined. I would hire Wayne and his crew again. Thanks again Wayne.
Premier Kitchens has had a working relationship for 15+ years with Christian Construction. Wayne Christian is one of our main "go to" contractors for kitchen and bath remodels. He and his team are knowledgeable, professional and detail oriented. If I could add an extra star, I would for the amazing "can do" attitude they bring to each and every job!
Wayne took on our project after our initial contractor balked and quit when we asked for more detail on his costs! Wayne was far more forthcoming and transparent about all his costs. Throughout the project, we felt like he treated our money like it was his money. He was also very understanding and flexible when we made changes and had to deal with some structural surprises along the way. He also went above and beyond when our architect / engineer got a little flaky -- he helped get a number of changes through the permitting office. Compared to other firms we considered, we liked that Wayne was on the job site every day. He had a small team of two helpers that he managed while working alongside them. He did all the plumbing and electrical work himself. His contract terms were also more reasonable. Wayne was friendly, reliable and always tried to understand the owner's perspective. He was also mindful of the fact that we had small children and were living in the house during the remodel. In terms of Wayne's work -- we had a large, complex job with lots of changes that spanned knocking out walls, new foundations, holding the roof to insert new support beams, an entirely new kitchen, a new master bath, a new laundry room and a new bathroom / entertainment area near the pool. We are very pleased with the results and get lots of compliments on the remodel - including comments on how well some of the framing, carpentry and finishing was done. I've included photos of before, during and after our for the living room / dining room / kitchen area that probably best capture the work done.
I used Christian Construction to remodel my bathroom last summer. I was very impressed with Wayne (the owner) and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to remodel. He was outstanding in every way. I used Houzz to get ideas and he was able to translate them and improve on them. He is very knowledgable about all the obvious aspects of the remodel, plumbing, electrical, etc. but his ideas and problem solving set him apart from his competition. He was timely getting information to me and would recap and keep me updated with an email every few days. He kept to the schedule and the price he quoted me so I was happy from the beginning to the end. He is organized, and was careful to keep things clean and livable during the project. I kept some existing things in the bathroom and he was able to tie them in so the whole bathroom looks brand new. My husband noticed how nice and professional he was and would also give him 5 stars: bottom line, we would hire him again in a second!!!
It is a pleasure to work with Wayne Christian on kitchen remodel projects. I am a kitchen designer and enjoy working with him. I find him easy to work with, shows care for the client and their choices and does great work through out the completion of the project. He takes care in his work and will make extra changes to better the design with out hesitation. I look forward to working with him on more projects!
We hired Wayne to remodel two of our bathrooms in Walnut Creek. He did an amazing job. He listened carefully to our needs and worked with us to come up with creative solutions to some design challenges. He is extremely conscientious, taking special care to limit dust in our house and to tidy up each day. He stayed on budget and was very transparent about all costs, sending us regular updates. Very good craftsmanship as well. We highly recommend Wayne.
We hired Wayne for a master bathroom remodel and could not have been happier both during the process and with the final result. From the beginning Wayne was responsive and prepared. On his initial walk through he discussed his ideas and was very responsive to the ideas we had too. He came in on budget and on time. Professionally Wayne is fantastic. His craftsmanship is remarkable. He has a great eye for the big picture and how everything will fit in. He had excellent suggestions for everything from the aesthetics of wall placement to suggesting we install an outlet in a drawer in the vanity so we wouldn't have to deal with moving the hair dryer (first-world problems, I realize). He was on site every day and was always available to discuss where we were in the project. Besides being a consummate professional, Wayne is incredibly personable as well. His crew is friendly and our kids loved having them around the house. He even coached me up on a couple home improvement projects I was working on. He's fun to talk to, easy to work with, and a great resource to bounce ideas off of. We have recommended him to other friends and will most definitely use him again when we decide to pull the trigger on a new kitchen.
Wayne was at our house performing the work himself every day of the project. He was very professional every step of the way. His vast experience and attention to details helped see potential issues ahead of time which eliminated unnecessary delays. Our project included some challenging structural work and Wayne took care of it like it was not a problem at all (even though I know he worked really hard to make it all work). Wayne was able to perform all the contracted work per the contracted budget and was accommodating when it came to extras not included. The final product is the dream kitchen we we had envisioned during the design stage. We could not be happier with the outcome!
We hired Christian Construction to renovate our master bathroom. The project involved going down to the studs and moving some interior closets next to the bathroom to make the space bigger. Christian construction provided us a fixed bid and stuck to the price even though minor changes were needed. His crew was there every day, they were respectful and clean and were always available when we called. We will definately use them again. We love our new bathroom!
Excellent company to work with! Great craftsmanship, well organized and clean job-sites. Really enjoy working with Wayne on his projects, he is a stand up guy. We really see the quality of his work means we are the last subs to work on the job-site. Really looking forward to working with Wayne on many future projects.

We hired Christian Construction to remodel our guest house. They were a great team, did excellent work, were very accommodating and easy to work with. More specifically, communication was good, the jobsite was always well maintained and tidy, the crew arrived on time and when expected and the estimate and budget was accurate. When items such as more wall plugs and a change of window size occurred, Wayne explained the additional time required and the added cost as to not surprise us in the end. We would highly recommend Christian Construction and plan to use them on our main house bathroom remodels in the near future!
We were impressed with Wayne's thoroughness at our very first meeting as he carefully evaluated our project and discussed our various options. He arranged to start our demolition after the new cabinets arrived so that we could make certain they were exactly what we wanted. When he started, the work moved quickly and painlessly. It was a pleasure to have Wayne and his assistants in our home. They were always considerate of our needs and left our home as tidy as possible at the end of each day. I was impressed with how Wayne worked with his young assistant. He was a patient and generous teacher and it was a pleasure to listen to their give and take! He was on time and on budget and his work is flawless. If there was ever a concern, he addressed it immediately. I am VERY happy to give Christian Construction all 5 well deserved stars!
Wayne and his crew were a complete pleasure to deal with from beginning to the end. We never felt the high anxiety and exasperation that one often hears about during a kitchen remodel. The work was done on time and on budget. Wayne particularly made every effort to get the best and smartest finished product down to the smallest detail. Everything was explained in advance and when adjustments needed to be made to the original plan, options and recommendations were outlined and thoroughly discussed. Once he started the project he worked a regular schedule and we knew when he would be there. The work site was kept tidy and he cleaned up every day before leaving. The kitchen is beautiful and the transformation striking. We would recommend Christian Construction without reservation.
Wayne Christian of Christian Construction was a fantastic contractor to work with. We hired him for a complete kitchen remodel. He helped us get out from under a prior design we would have never been happy with, and pointed us to a design and cabinet set we are definitely happy with. The kitchen remodel lasted about 4 months total. During that time, Wayne helped us set up our temporary kitchen in another room. He understood the disruption the remodel would cause, and was very accommodating during this time. Wayne is a wonderful communicator- whenever problems came up, he was first to point them out and come up with pros and cons of the various solutions. He graciously answered our repetitive questions, and made sure we stayed on top of our own work for the kitchen (selecting door pulls, kitchen sink, etc). We love our new kitchen! Wayne is very detailed, and made sure that all loose ends (literal and figurative) come together. He has been a pleasure to work with, and the final result of his work is wonderful! We highly recommend Christian Construction for your project!
We worked with Wayne to remodel our kitchen. The job entailed pushing an exterior wall out 2 feet, supporting the extension with a steel beam and a complete interior redesign/remodel. Wayne did an outstanding job. He partnered with me from the very beginning as we discussed design ideas and laid out the schedule. He was exceptionally accommodating and worked very hard to minimize the inevitable disruptions that a big kitchen remodel will create. He even set up a temporary kitchen sink for us in our downstairs shower (very creative). He always had a positive "can do" attitude and essentially became an extended member of the family for the duration of the project. We are very happy with how the project went as well as the finished product. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and would definitely use him again.
Christian Construction provided a professional, high quality, job well done. They showed up on time, kept us well informed as the job progressed. The job site was always tidy. There were never any access issues to the home. They worked with us on small details very well. I was very comfortable leaving the home while the crew was on site. They always showed up in a good mood! I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Services provided were floor leveling and installation of tile in the master bath. Christian Construction was wonderful. Always in contact with me regarding How the project was coming along. Very conscientious with rest of my home, covering carpets and cleaning up everyday. They took the time to lay out the tile so i could decide on placement of individual tiles prior to installation. The floor was done on schedule and budget. Beautiful job! Christian Construction was phenomenal to work with.
We recently did a full remodel of our kitchen, and were lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with Wayne. In the initial design stages, Wayne was great in talking through our design ideas, showing us examples of his recent work that incorporated some of these concepts, and even forwarding us ideas on Houzz to help inspire us. During the construction period, Wayne was very thorough in ensuring that he kept the workspace as clean as possible, and always kept our family's comfort in mind as we lived through the "fun" of trying to live in a house during construction! We could not have been happier with the results of the remodel. Wayne's has a high attention to details and really worked with us in what we considered "tricky" design details. He has a great communication style and kept us informed all the way. We would definitely use Wayne again, and would recommend him highly.
You'll see the true colors of a contractor when an unexpected problem in your project arises. Well, we had two or three snafus during the remodeling of our kitchen, but Wayne Christian was always super helpful, resourceful and patient to help us out of problems which arose. Additional work which needed to be done was charged at a very fair price. My husband (an engineer) is super picky about any contractor's work, and Wayne is one of two he actually thought did an outstanding job. Wayne has done many kitchen remodels, so he plans the process very well with a lot of attention to detail. Even if it's your first kitchen remodel you'll be fine, as he'll guide you through it!
Our recent kitchen lighting upgrade was the third time we had worked with Wayne Christian on home improvement projects. Being renovation novices, we appreciated his recommendations for improvements on our initial concept. We were pleasantly surprised at how little we were inconvenienced while he inhabited our kitchen for several hours each day until the project was completed. He kept the work space remarkably clean, and moved his materials and equipment out of the way daily, to provide us access to this critical room in our home. We will continue to recommend him to our friends seeking top-quality craftsmanship, attention to detail, professionalism and courtesy from their contractor.
Wayne completed our kitchen and various other construction jobs, den lighting, conversion of closet to wine refrigerator, repair/replacement of exterior siding. He is a methodical and detailed planner delivering timely outstanding results. Trustworthy and dependable. We were always amazed at his resourcefulness. He is a professional who we highly recommend. In October 2015, Wayne completed our Bath remodel - demolishing the existing structure, removing the tub, installing new sub flooring and providing a good subcontractor for the tile work. The laundry room and adjacent guest bathroom were also retiled. He continually provided timely updates until completion. We highly recommend him.
Wayne Christian completed our recent remodel of two bathrooms in our home. We highly recommend him without reservations! Wayne was wonderful to work with in every way. He provided us with a competitive bid as well as detailed plans and a timeline. The project went very smoothly. All of Wayne's work was excellent - thorough and detail-oriented. He was at our home every day, even on days when his subcontractor was doing the work. Wayne is a great communicator and he went above and beyond to confirm every important decision. He is honest and fair - we trusted him completely. Beyond all of that, Wayne is just the nicest person! Our kids loved him. He brought the sheet rock for our bathroom onto our patio a few days ahead so our daughter could decorate it. We are so pleased with the outcome of Wayne's work and we would be very pleased to work with him again in the future.
Another excellent job! We hired Christian Construction to install some electrical timers and wiring for a complicated project involving both the inside and outside of our home. Wayne helped us pick out the appropriate timers, which was not straightforward, and answered questions regarding details and concerns we had regarding the project.Upon completion, the work was first rate. This is the third time we have used Christian Construction and they have always exceed our expectations.
Our kitchen is beautiful and our experience was positive. We felt heard in our hopes for the aesthetic as well as the functional. Wayne Christian encouraged us to speak up when we had ideas or concerns. They worked diligently and gave us just what we'd hoped for.
Christian Construction did a fantastic job remodeling our kitchen a couple of years ago. When we discovered a damp carpet and wet wall in our family room we called Wayne and he showed up within hours. He made room in his schedule to meet with our insurance adjuster, provided emergency restoration services and in the end demoed much of the family room and all of the fireplace and repaired everything. Additionally, we discovered some bad siding on our house and he replaced that and repainted it. We can’t say enough about Wayne’s professionalism. He communicated well with us about the scope of the repair, did high quality work and showed up when he said he would. We were very happy with the end result of our unexpected project thanks to Wayne and Christian Construction. We recommend Christian Construction enthusiastically.
Hiring Wayne Christian to do our kitchen remodel was the absolute best decision we made in the entire project. We had to bury a 17 foot steel I-beam in the ceiling to hold up the 2nd story of our house in order to remove a wall that opened up our space. There were many obstacles in doing this, including routing of electrical, plumbing vents, and venting of our exhaust hood to the outside. Wayne always had a solution and discussed options with us. Despite the additional time involved to do some of this, he was extremely fair with change orders and we never felt "nickeled and dimed." He worked very well with other parties including the kitchen designer, the cabinet installer, and the granite fabricator/installer so that led to a minimum of problems during the job. He works alone (although sometimes with his son Andrew in the summer) so if you are looking for the fastest job, look elsewhere. But he was diligent in keeping our job moving forward with very few days that he had to go to another client/project. Wayne is a terrific person, very creative, very meticulous, and always conscious of minimizing the disruption on us. We feel he has become a friend, plus someone we would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. All-in-all, it was the best experience we've ever had with a remodeling contractor. Highly recommended! We couldn't have been more pleased with the experience with Wayne and the outcome of our beautiful kitchen. Bill and Ginger Wadsworth
