Bill Feilen with United Construction and his crew do EXCEPTIONAL work. His prices are truly unbeatable. The quality of workmanship is outstanding. Our job was completed exactly on time and within budget. Bill has great ideas and functional design suggestions. I have referred him to all my friends. I never write testimonials for anyone for anything.Review By: Lynette Reid, Santee 92071 | Submitted: 07/08/2014
I became aware of United Construction as they had done work on three other homes in my neighborhood. All the homeowners I spoke with were very complimentary of their experience with the company, the workmanship and the personnel. After obtaining a quote, I had them do a major renovation to my 45 year old home. My experience was so positive, I recommended them to friends on several occasions and also had them perform work on my daughter's home. The workmanship was excellent and performed in a timely manner. Their personnel were congenial and professional. Any changes that occurred during construction were handled in a professional manner at very reasonable prices. I would highly recommend this company and plan on using them again in the near future.

Bill and his team from United construction were timely in completing both projects. They were neat and clean. Any questions we had were answered and we were well educated on our options. Bill completed the first project on schedule, a large remodel and the second smaller project he started and completed ahead of the anticipate dates. He is easy to communicate with and always polite. His prices were more than reasonable for both projects. Can't recommend him highly enough.

United Construction, did an excellent job on adding a 2nd Story Addition to our house. Bill is very knowledgeable in construction and he knew exactly what he was doing all the time. He had an excellent crew working for him. If there was ever any delay it was because of the weather condition. To my knowledge he used exactly the best material for building what was agreed to on the contract. Since he does the work himself he gives reasonable prices. I truly recommend him to anybody.

I have used Bill Feilen and United Construction for several jobs, including a room addition and other construction projects. I have found Bill and his crew professional, reliable, and very much concerned about the quality of their work. They work with the home owner to make sure every objective of the job is met in a timely and professional manner, for a reasonable cost.

United Construction did an excellent job on our remodel and room addition project here in La Mesa. His "hands on" attention to the details really helped to achieve a quality job. United Construction helped plan our room addition and layout and offered great ideas such as the vaulted ceiling and the electrical layouts which proved to be very convenient now using our house. Bill himself was on the job regularly and his crew was courteous and trustworthy. The project was timely, the only delays were on our part as the homeowner trying to make decisions on changes, once we say some of the work. Bill actually drew up sketches, and built a small model and sizing of doors and windows to help us decide on some changes. Bill also had sub contractors such as the plumber and stucco person who we have hired separately since then for other work because of their quality work and good pricing. We are now saving our money to have Bill start a new project for the kitchen remodel and have no doubt that Bill will do the work. He is the only one we trust in this crazy market. Be careful out there, because there are rip offs trying to fake being a contractor and some even have licenses that should because of their shady business practices and poor quality work, In summary, United Construction was HANDS ON and GOOD QUALITY

United Construction has done a couple of jobs at my home. United construction, Bill and his crew are friendly, professional and trustworthy. There was a Friday afternoon that was coming to an end and I had a pipe break in my yard,( nothing to do with the work they had been hired for). He and his crew stopped what they were doing and took care of it. This was not a quick fix, it took a couple of hours. I can't tell you how grateful I was because my homes water had to be turned off at the main. They had our home up and running again with no complaints. Bill puts a lot of care, planning and thought into your job. He really wants you to be happy with his work.

Bill provided excellent customer service. He and his crew were professional and maintained the highest level of customer service. We were not only satisfied with our remodel, our expectations were exceeded by Bill and his team. We will definitely recommend him as he listened to our needs and tailored his services based on our feedback. Bill is honest and did an excellent job on our home. We will recommend him to family, friends and all of our neighbors.Review By: Faraidon Bustani, La Mesa 91942 | Submitted: 08/04/2014
My husband and I have used United Construction for several projects at our home. Our projects included a 400 square foot family room addition, master bedroom walk in closet, full bathroom remodel, moving out a wall in living room, patio cover and 480 square foot deck. Each project was handled professionally in a quality workmanship manner. We were always kept informed of any unexpected and/or uncontrollable delays. We have been so pleased with our experiences we have referred United Construction to several friends and family members.

United Construction has done several projects for me and my neighbors. Bill repaired my sagging roof, facia and eves. That was a huge task and Bill came up with some great methods and materials to get it done. Then he installed a new Energy Star "Cool Roof". Later I had him reframe some sagging floors before we installed travertine. These items increased the beauty and value of my property at a very reasonable price. I'm a retired general contractor and currently working as a California State certified construction inspector and consultant for public schools. To say I'm fussy about construction is an understatement. Bill is always the first call I make when I need something done at home or the ranch. I trust Bill Feilen and know what to expect from him in quality, performance, price and value.

Juanita Meza September 11, 2014 The purpose of this letter is to write a recommendation for United Construction as a general contractor. I had the pleasure of working with United Construction in the addition of a 2 car garage. Throughout the project, Bill Feilen has been professional and responded to all my questions and concerns without any reservation. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the cost of my project. My job was done with care and precision. He kept the job site clean and communicated the processing detail. I would highly encourage anyone to utilize the services of United Construction. He is a true professional.

I have used United Construction for the past 12 years, since we moved into our present house. Bill Feilen and crew have remodeled my kitchen from start to finish. United Construction replaced all of our existing sliding doors with new ones that are energy star efficient. They have replaced everything for us from new bathroom fixtures, plumbing, electrical, dry walling, repairing existing leaks, heating units, AC tile work and new fencing. Bill and his crew are always prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. And if at any time I call Bill for our remodeling needs he comes right over (even after hours) to go over plans and options. When I decide to tackle a DIY project and mess it up, I can call United Construction and Bill comes over to repair my mess. Bill goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable throughout every phase of repair, construction and remodeling, always getting the job done right! He also likes Chocolate Chip cookies!

I have hired Bill Feiler, owner of United Constructions, to make improvements on my house three times in recent years, and each time his workmanship and expertise has been exemplary. Bill Feiler is not merely a supervising owner, but a hands-on contractor He hires a top notch crew of men and works side by side with them. Bill oversees all the work and insures that everything is done to his high specifications. I intend to speak to Bill about two more projects that I have in mind, and I would not hesitate to recommend his company to anyone who asks.

The job was to replace a rickety, old, termite eaten stairway that was the only entrance to my attic apartment. My house is over 100 years old and of the classic "craftsman" style. The final product is not only beautiful, but a safe and secure stairway to a beautiful deck. This has given so much pleasure to me and my family. The addition has been literally life changing. His crew is also very competent, polite, punctual and hard working. I would recommend him and would love to be able to use him again in the future. Everyone that sees my new deck and stairs is blown away. It is so nice...the work is impeccable. Thank you, Bill. You did a great job and I am so happy with the work that you did!!

The job was for a room addition to our property, which posed a challenge as there was no space to add the room on the ground level. Bill came up with a plan that would work well with our existing layout and also agree with our HOA. The job went well and Bill was considerate to working on a house with people living in it, trying to keep the construction as minimally invasive as possible, and being considerate to our schedule as well. He was also very accommodating to a few additional requests we had of him, as well as pointing us in the right direction for additional services which he did not specialize in. Overall, we are very satisfied with the work that was done.

We have used United Construction for a few different jobs. Bill Feilen is very good at what he does. We had a Remodel to our home to convert and add an Income Property 1BR unit. We also had a few smaller jobs to our own home. His knowledge and expertise was very helpful in making design decisions. His workmanship was very clean and we were pleased and satisfied with all the work he did for us. I would use United Cobstruction again and highly recommend him to my friends.

We hired Bill to do a unique remodel on our home. He was onsite every day which made communication regarding what we desired very easy and manageable. The end product exceeded our expectations and Bill attended very diligently to everything we desired. I would certainly recommend him to anyone seeking a remodel and we will be sure to rehire him for any future projects.

I was very happy with the work that Bill and his crew performed on our house. They were professional in their duties and courteous at all times.

This review is long overdue. We met Bill Feilen from United Construction in March 2015 while he was building a home in Imperial Beach. We needed much renovation to the outside of our home which included wood framing, windows, new outside covering for our fireplace, stucco, and painting of our two story home. He provided a detailed description of the work to be done, which also included clean-up. Despite the delay in rain, the work was completed in a timely manner. Bill was very professional, easy to keep in contact with and kept us updated on the project. One year later, we are still very pleased with the renovation he and his company completed. Our home looks like a new home. We highly recommend Bill Feilen and United Construction.

Our neighbor had Bill Feilen do a re-model and we were so impressed with his work that we had him do extensive re-modeling to our house. Bill and his hard working crew did an amazing job, and we were more than pleased with the results. Bill's attention to detail is appreciated and he really is "hands on from start to finish" We would absolutely recommend Bill Feilen and United Construction!

To preface, i am probably a customer that most contractors dread. I am an engineer who is detail oriented with a do it yourself attitude. That being said, i do most housework myself. In this case, i hired United Construction because i do not trust myself with major structural changes. United Construction removed a wall, rebuilt a wall adding new doors and windows and moved plumbing within my foundation. All work was professional and well done. While many contractors do good work, below is a list of positives i find rare with contractors i have worked with. 1) open to suggestions and changes. During this project, plans changed and expanded multiple times. Bill (the owner) was very quick to pick up the changes and suggest additional changes. He was also very quick to give me updated quotes and pricing on the extended projects. 2) Bill ( the owner ) was on site a majority of the time, working and supervising the project directly. 3) They used high quality materials on the project, often going above and beyond normal construction permit rules. 4) They kept the area clean and protected the surrounding areas. Multiple plastic tarps were used to keep dust down. They also put plywood down over my flooring while moving materials in and out of my yard. 5) Great communication on a day to day basis.

My wife and I wanted to remodel our living room, kitchen and dining room. We also wanted to add-on a family room. The project was pretty extensive. We interviewed 8 high end builders and decided to go with Bill at United Construction. Our main focus was on Workmanship, Quality and Price. He exceeded our expectations in all 3 areas. Two of the most common words during the remodel process was " brilliant and beautiful ". We love coming home - thank you *****

Bill did a family room+master bedroom,bathroom,closet+kitchen for us nine years ago and we were very pleased with his work. When we decided this summer to add another bedroom, we simply called Bill to build the room for us. The entire process took about eight weeks and the project just passed the City's final inspection! Everything went smoothly, on time and on budget. Bill and his crew did a great job once again. Thank you, Bill!!

We hired Bill/United Construction for the add on of our master suite, kitchen remodel and our covered patio. The customer service as well as the finished product was fabulous and beyond our expectations. Bill and his team were great, they were there as scheduled, did daily clean up and were prompt to answer any questions we had. It truly made the experience easy. We couldn’t love our new spaces more, family and friends have been so complementary on the work done. I would definitely recommend Bill and his team to work on any project, as a matter of fact, we will probably be starting our bathroom remodel soon! United Construction’s pricing is hard to beat, so really…look no further. Lynda and Richard Palmer Santee, CA

Bill built our 2 story house in 1999, from the ground, up. We loved the work he did and still very much enjoy living in the beautiful place he built. As we look toward retirement, we've decided to build another house and rent out the one we're living in. The first and only builder we thought of was Bill! His attention to detail is amazing. He comes up with great ideas that we never would've thought of. He's conscientious about every aspect of the project. He's careful and extremely attentive, easy to talk to, and a heck of a nice guy. He truly cares about making his customers happy. As we are just in the design phase at this time, we're looking forward to working with him again. If you need remodeling work or want to build a new house, Bill is your man, without a doubt! You won't be disappointed.

Over the last 15 years United construction has done all my construction needs. I have 3 homes which he has worked on from writing to concrete and everything in between. Bill has done a complete remodel on one of my homes. He wants remodeled and upstairs one bad Room rental and his suggestions were such an improvement on the rental that the tenant still lives there to day and loves it. Yes such insight of the construction industry that only experience can provide. Bill has built me a man cave for me at my. Now my daughter and my grand kids live in the house on a enjoy their company. There are a lot of other projects that are too small in nature to mention and it would be another page of work. All these projects I have enjoyed working with bill and his crew. They all go out of their way to make sure that I was happy with what's being done. He is very fair with his prices. I have gotten beds from other contractors. Is price has been sometimes higher but usually lower. It's the comfort of knowing that the work will be done with quality and care with respect to my needs that has left me satisfied every time. In edilean to that I have had with bill I have found him to be very honest and forthright. I highly recommend the team of United construction to anyone that needs to have work done on their home.

We have used United Construction for four large remodeling jobs at our home over the last several years. These projects have included a large addition, as well as adding a second story to our home. Each project was reasonably priced and completed within budget. Bill is onsite with his crew to oversee the work and make sure the job is done to the highest quality. We have recommended United Construction to people and are planning to use them again ourselves for an upcoming project.

I recently had Bill, United Construction, remodel/rework my ‘patio room’. The room was an enclosed aluminum type structure that was falling apart. I wanted it changed to be a more permanent and stable part of the house. When he came to do an estimate, he knew exactly what needed to be done, offered suggestions on how to handle some of the challenges and was totally open to working within my budget. During construction I was able to see the new structure from the inside out and was very impressed with the quality and professionalism of the workmanship. The structure is definitely built to last and I attribute this to Bill’s knowledge and dedication to do things properly. He knows his business and helped me a great deal through the process by being fair and honest. During construction Bill always kept me in the loop, and never failed to answer any questions or concerns I had, no matter how insignificant they were. I would most definitely recommend United Construction and would not hesitate to use Bill again for any future work I might have.
