  • “I own a grocery store in Oakland that needed repairs after a fire. My adjuster suggested Norcal, and I was really satisfied with them. They suggested what should be done, did it, and made sure it met inspection. They are reliable, and I will be using them again.”

  • “Gerard remodeled our kitchen, which involved a lot of coordinating with the cabinet maker, plumber, and electrician. He kept us informed, told us the cost way in advance, and made good suggestions on the job. We felt great about the whole experience.”

  • “He is wonderful! He’s done two major remodels for me, and he is just amazing in that what he envisions is always what I want. He gives great suggestions, it is so nice to have his guidance. And I loved every one of his subcontractors, they are all so knowledgable.”

I give GREAT service, with French flair,” says Berkeley builder Gerard Dahan. “I’ll take you to clients’ homes, show you my work and you can ask them what they think about working with us.”

Originally from France, Gerard spent 10 years remodeling chic Paris apartments before coming to the United States just over 20 years ago. He began working with a Hayward contractor in 1987, then bought him out while keeping the company name and Hayward facility. He specializes in remodeling kitchens and baths for discerning East Bay clients, Gourmet Ghetto foodies, and parents at the French-American School where his 13-year-old daughter is a student.

“I’m like a family doctor,” he says, “Once people have worked with me and my crews, they always call us back to do their next project.

“We usually work on one or two jobs at a time, and I am present on every job. Our prices are very competitive, given the quality work and the level of service we provide. Before we start work, I meet extensively with the client, and discuss different ideas and design approaches.

“We go over every detail, point by point. That way I can order cabinets and other materials well in advance, and have everything on-site, so that we can complete your job as quickly as possible.

“I can take you shopping, suggest local resources and stores for you to visit, and show you catalogs that will help us define the look you’re going for. Once I have every construction item clearly specified, I can really make the project move quickly, and with a minimum of inconvenience for the homeowner.”

Gerard says his company can do whatever remodeling work a client wants— it’s simply a matter of how much is in their budget.

“Whatever route you choose, we will give you quality work, great service and fast turnaround. I take the attitude that each new client is going to be the reference for my next job.”
