Steve Howard established his construction business in 1984 with the goal of building and renovating homes of exceptional design and quality. His initial projects were in Palo Alto, Woodside and Portola Valley both new homes and large scale remodels.
In the 1990's he had the opportunity to rebuild several historic homes damaged in the Loma Prieta earthquake. This experience inspired him to acquire extensive knowledge and experience in rebuilding and renovating classic California residences, renovating and upgrading them in a masterful way that respected and complemented the original design and architecture as well as including upgrades that reflected current lifestyle trends. His own Los Gatos home became one of his "earthquake projects" and he still resides there today.
Steve's long time experience in rebuilding fine homes in Monte Sereno, Saratoga and Los Gatos has given him the opportunity to team with talented architecture firms, interior designers, landscape designers and real estate agents to provide the superior services in residential contracting projects. He is able to recommend the best solutions from the planning stage to post construction services for new build and rebuilt homes. Steve values his clients, providing them with excellent problem solving skills as well as ongoing support and consulting for their homes.
Steve was been voted Los Gatos Weekly's Reader's choice winner for “Best General Building Contractor" for 2 years running.
