What Our Clients Say

Building a house with Behr Construction was a wonderful experience, not only did I get a beautifully built home, but I also feel like I’ve got a second family.

— Deb Schofield

When our prior contractor would not return calls after completing a project, we called Behr Construction. Behr cheerfully and reasonably repaired windows that leaked, tile grout that needed to be filled, and a bathroom faucet that sprayed water from an improper seal. I cannot say enough great things about your group. They were responsive, polite and diligent. While there to fix the problems, Behr performed a number of other projects for us including building a walk-in closet, laying tumbled marble in a bathroom, and installing a gas line to the fireplace. They are the handyman I didn’t marry and a great community asset!

Thank you, Behr Construction!

— Anne Buettner

Myrna and I had the pleasure of working with Chris Behr and Behr Construction on several occasions over the last 15 years. It is therefore with considerable experience, the greatest of confidence, and the highest of praise that I commend Chris Behr and Behr Construction.
As a person, Chris Behr’s integrity is beyond reproach. He was raised in La Canada and still maintains a residence in this area, making him a very accessible figure in this community. He gives generously to numerous community causes and organizations.

As a contractor, he runs a company that both demands and delivers perfection. His employees and independent contractors are, without exception, courteous, timely, and well qualified.

I do not take referrals lightly and give them quite sparingly. However, it is with absolutely no reservation that I strongly recommend Chris Behr and Behr Construction Company for virtually any construction project. His innovative ideas (typically impressing architects, designers, and decorators), high quality of workmanship, accessibility, and sense of responsibility set him apart from his counterparts in this field.

Thanks for jobs well done! Your personal commitment to maintaining the quality of your men’s work, and your patience in explaining work in progress and the time frame necessary made a long, arduous project manageable without a complete reorganization of our lives! Myron and I will tell others of our satisfaction with the quality of your work.

-Mr. & Mrs. Morris

When I remolded by home, I called Chris Behr because of his excellent reputation. He and I worked very well together on plans for this project on a house built in 1929. He has so many wonderful ideas that work and make my home very comfortable. He and his employees and sub-contractors are all very professional, know their jobs and are the best I could have asked to work with. I am very satisfied and happy with the results. I have recommended Behr Construction firm to all my friends and will continue to do so.

— Joyce Davison

Behr Construction Company deserves our highest recommendation. We are able to enjoy our wonderful new kitchen and skillfully laid driveway because of the attentive workers and because of the ever attentive supervisor John Mills who, when found necessary, was willing to make necessary adjustments. Workers and supervisor gave high priority to our concerns which ensured a high level of satisfaction.

— Venetta & Peter Tassopulos

Thank you for doing a superior remodel! The bathroom is beautiful and functional. Please thank all the fine craftsmen who did such wonderful work and were so considerate while in our house.
Thanks again-we love our new bath.

— Betsy & Jeff Hall

My wife and I gave a lot of thought last night to what you talked about and we have decided that this will be our new home. I wanted to let you know that your recommendation, along with those of others in the community, had a big part in our final decision and I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to talk to me. We will always feel that you played an important part in our decision to settle in this wonderful friendly town. Thank you again for your input.

P.S. We look forward to joining the community and providing quality work. It was interesting that I would recognize the photos of one of your reconstructions in my mom’s neighborhood when I stopped by the other day. Your comments were most helpful. Will be there soon! Best of luck with your new projects.

— Jeffrey Spencer

The Behr Construction Company has recently completed its second remodeling/restoration task in the past two years for me.

The first job was the total remodel of my 1960’s vintage ranch style home. Working to my designs, the building was stripped to the open studs, interior walls removed and relocated, all the windows and doors were replaced, the electrical wiring was completely replaced, lots of concrete work was accomplished and the roof replaced. I was very pleased with all of the work, with the quality and craftsmanship of Behr’s in-house personnel and their subs. The job was well managed and completed on schedule at the agreed to cost. The finished work was so good that the house was chosen to be featured in the ASID Pasadena Chapter 2014 Kitchen and Home Tour.

Based upon their excellent performance on the house remodel, I engaged Behr for the restoration of my beach condo following significant water damage. The drywall and electrical systems were replaced in half of the building. All the plumbing fixtures were replaced, all the flooring replaced and everything was painted. Again, the job was completed on schedule and on the agreed to cost. Many of the same subs and in-house personnel from the first job were used which was very satisfying. While parking is at a real premium in the beach community, the neighbor across the street remarked that all the workers were extremely considerate and caused no concerns to the neighborhood or local traffic.

I chose Behr again because their great job management, efficient scheduling, great communication with their project managers, and their fine business practices. In both cases, I worked closely with the project managers and totally enjoyed the interactions. The quality of work met or exceeded all my expectations and is guaranteed for a year.

Behr Construction has been doing work for us for close to 10 years. Its been a pleasure working with Chris and Tom, both who are honest and up front. Their work is excellent and I like the fact that when they give me a price I don’t end up with twice as much when the job is completed, as have done in the past. In fact, sometimes the job is a little less than the quote. There workers are polite, clean and hardworking. I would highly recommend Behr Construction to anyone wanting quality work done.

— Joan Casella

It has been almost a year we have been living in our new house and we keep praising ourselves for making the right decision in choosing Behr Construction as our general contractor.
The company and the employees have demonstrated ultimate professionalism with special touch of personal attention. Big thank you to “BEHR Construction”!

— Armen & Rita Baranian

Sarah and I want to tell you how pleased we are with the way the kitchen project turned out. Your planning and budgeting were right on target and, according to many friends, completing the job in six weeks deserves a medal.
Contributing to the finished product was the fact that your employees and sub-contractors were all very good at their specialties, had good attitudes and kept the disruption to a minimum. Coming in under budget is always a pleasant surprise.

Chris, you have worked with the Kniering family for about fifteen years now, and that in itself is a good recommendation. If you wish to have prospective clients touch base with us, that is one of the dividends earned from a job well done.

–The Kniering Family

I am enclosing some pictures of our finished project. We are still decorating but the construction and landscaping are done.
We wanted to thank you for a great job. We are very pleased with the result. The expanded dining room was wonderful when we had 24 here for Thanksgiving dinner!

With all good wishes.
