Testimonials

OUR CLIENTS BECOME OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY

They have faith in our work, confidence in our abilities and they trust Teevan with their homes and projects.  The Teevan team values this tremendously. We recognize that our clients are the heart of our success and truly appreciate and value each and every one of them. Our dedication to our clients is apparent. We take great pride in this and are happy to share their comments about our team.

Teevan was just voted San Francisco’s Favorite Small Business by 7×7 Readers.  Our team was overwhelmed by the response from our clients and neighbors. We received more nominations than any other business in the city!

Here are a sampling of few of our nominations . . .

“My husband and I were looking for a painting contractor to Paint the outside of our home and replace some windows that were rotted.  We met several contractors, but selected Teevan to do the job.  It was a pleasure working with this company.  The team who worked on our home was extremely efficient, competent and polite.  But, what really amazed me was how the company stands by their work.  Teevan actually contacts me yearly and comes by to inspect their work.  Last year they found a couple of small spots they were not pleased with and re-did them at no cost.  This really impressed us, and we would not hesitate to recommend Teevan to anyone in need of contracting services.  Teevan is a truly awesome business and we would like to nominate them Best Small Businesses in San Francisco.”

“Teevan is a construction company that excels in customer service and high quality construction. It is owned by a lovely young couple with strong ethics and a loyal commitment to their customers, vendors and employees. We rely on Teevan to maintain and improve our Richmond District home because we know that they will be honest with us, that they will collaborate with us, that they have a skilled group of professionals that we can leverage. While we do not enjoy home remodeling, but we do enjoy working with everyone at Teevan. When we are nearby their office on Union Street, we bring our young sons to drop in and visit; it feels like family to us. We have worked with Teevan since 2003, and they have completed several highly technical waterproofing jobs for us, as well as interior remodeling. “

“Teevan is the full package that anyone is looking for in a small business.  They are incredibly professional, extremely knowledgeable, and truly work with you on your project to accommodate your needs within your budget. I have had the privilege of closely working with many Teevan employees, including the owner, for 6+ years on a number of projects. Their quality of work is consistently impressive and their personal attention can’t be beat! All of the Teevan representatives are all respectful, accommodating, easily reachable, thorough and trustworthy. Teevan is most deserving of the Best Small Business in San Francisco recognition so that more people can experience what a privilege it is to work with them!”

“They are a small very tightly knit team providing building consulting, exterior repair and remodeling at a high level with lots of hands on care.  They are knowledgeable and very experienced with working in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area on all types of large residential and commercial projects, especially those requiring sensitivity to special construction needs and multi-unit clients.”

“I’m writing to nominate Teevan as the best small business in San Francisco. Teevan has taken what used to be a stress-filled, confrontational process and turned it into something that was actually enjoyable. Home restoration is never simple, but the Teevan team went out of their way to make sure we knew exactly what was going on at all times and to guide us through all aspects of the decision-making process. Every member of the team was courteous and helpful, and it was obvious that Teevan takes care of its employees as well as it does its customers.”

“I understand that you are having a contest in search of the best small business in the SF area.  Without hesitation, I am nominating Teevan for this award.  They are an awesome family oriented business that does a wonderful job renovating homes.  They are courteous, do quality work, and tackle even the most difficult jobs with enthusiasm.  We will utilize Teevan for all of our renovating needs.  They are always neat and tidy while they are doing their projects.  We could not be happier with this company.”  

“Teevan is a small general contracting company which was founded in 1963. I’ve used them for nearly 10 years, for interior remodeling, interior and exterior painting, leak detection and correction, and for general maintenance. I’ve come to trust them enough that they remodeled my kitchen and bathroom while I was in Europe for a month! I appreciate the attention and care they bring to their work, and to their 20 employees. I happily recommend them to my friends and colleagues, and definitely support them as best in their class!”

“In each of the past four years we have asked Teevan to protect our building from the harsh weather in San Francisco.  We go back to them repeatedly, because they exhibit the same concern for the protection of our building as we actual owners.  Teevan has consistently found creative solutions to allow us to protect our building, while simultaneously minimizing the cost to us owners.  Teevan has taken on the role of worrying about our building, leaving us to rest easy while the storms lash our building in the winter.”

“I want to endorse Teevan for their distinguished work.  Their leadership is concerned with their relationship to clients, to understanding the job to be done and to applying their capacities to the work at hand.  Their workers are competent, careful and professional.  They are sensitive not only to the client’s work but to the environment, especially to the neighbors who may be affected by the work to be done.  I was interested that after seeing the work being done on my property that my neighbor retained them to undertake work on his own residence.  They are not a financial bargain, but they are fair and a value contractor.”

“I want to nominate Teevan because I have been truly impressed by and thoroughly enjoyed working with EVERY member of their team. Ben said he only hires the best and this was repeatedly my experience. Their standard of excellence exceeded my own and the question was never “how difficult is that” but rather “what do you want it to look like?”The Teevan team has the unique ability to simultaneously hold the larger remodel vision while paying meticulous attention to all the details. 

Each of the workers is really an artist who practices his craft with such care and takes pride in his work which once again results in a standard of excellence that is rare in the construction industry which is often more about getting things done fast and cheap. Their standards were always higher than mine often pointing out things I thought looked great which they were still tweaking  because they were not “perfect” just yet.  

I have talked to many people who have endured remodels and most of them ask “do you want to kill your contractor/construction crew?” and my answer is quite the opposite…while I am so excited to complete our project, I will truly miss getting to see and interact with the Teevan team. Getting to spend time with the Teevan the guys at my house with their warmth, thoughtfulness, and positive attitudes has been such a gift, and I will truly miss them all. No matter how overwhelmed I felt when I arrived at the house, I always left feeling better and lighter because of my interactions with the Teevan crew.

I so enjoyed working with Teevan’s designer Sandra. She is extremely talented and connected to so many unique resources that have been such fun to incorporate. She did such an incredible job really understanding and supporting  both our individual tastes and our family’s lifestyle while offering suggestions based on her extensive design experience and her exceptional creative genius

It has been such a gift to feel total trust around Teevan’s  recommendations- both because they do such a thorough job around due diligence and have such a breadth of experience AND because they are such an integritous company always honoring the relationship with the client. We had a very stressful (but I have learned typical) experience where we discovered all sorts of problems due to previous builder negligence once we were in demo. I feel so grateful to have had Teevan as our wise and trusty guide through all the decisions, and I can rest assured now that our home is both beautiful and safe. “
