Anawalt Lumber Company
Multiple Projects For Years
Very few contractors know the residential construction business as well as Michael Kavin. Michael has built a successful construction firm based on integrity, quality and craftsmanship. I know his clients are pleased with the extraordinary service level and high quality product provided by Kavin Construction, and I can vouch for his integrity. Anawalt Lumber and Kavin Construction have doing business for over 30 years and I know that Mr. Kavin’s clients are pleased they chose Kavin Construction.
Our house is as beautiful as it is solidly built — or rebuilt as the case may be. Michael Kavin was here to check on things frequently but his crew, headed by the amazing Dan Dixon at my house, didn’t require much oversight as Dan and his guys were on top of every nail and fixture that went into the finished product. We love our house, our friends love what we did and we have Kavin Construction to thank for it!

Before we were referred to Michael Kavin and Kavin Construction, we’d had nothing but nightmares with the contractors we had worked with. They were nice people who promised to deliver what we wanted and needed and indeed had contracted for, only to let us down in the end. The opposite has been true with Kavin Construction. If you are considering remodeling your home, the only company to consider, in our opinion, is Kavin Construction. Their work is impeccable and they stand behind everything they do. Considering our past experiences, they have given us piece of mind.
Some of the highlights of what I experienced were:
1. People from top to bottom who are among the best I have ever dealt with in any company, any trade, in any business.
2. Total supervision; I had a foreman, supervisor and owner all overseeing my project.
3. A bi-monthly bill that was so comprehensive and detailed in nature that I knew every moment where every cent had been spent and how, with copies of everything pertaining to my job included.
4. An attention to detail like no other and an understanding how important ‘attention to detail’ is to any job and client.
5. The highest punctuality, politeness, friendliness and respect.
6. The highest craftsmanship in every manner.
7. A complete feeling of trust from first minute to last.
I feel so strongly about Kavin Construction that I welcome and encourage anyone to call the office of Kavin Construction for my phone number so that I may speak to them in person to give them a more detailed account of just what I experienced.

For six years I suffered the tortures of the damned because of bad contractors until Kavin Construction came to my rescue to finish an entire remodeling of my home. In effect Kavin Construction saved my life because of the almost unendurable nature of what I had experienced up until this point with the building trade. Kavin Construction is not just your typical construction company, this is a company whose sole dedication and commitment is to trust, service and excellence.
Multiple Remodeling Projects
I have been using Kavin Construction for over 20 years and I can’t say enough about them. They have done numerous projects for me, and Michael and his staff have been there for me every step of the way. His people are all wonderful, loving and caring. I always say, if you are still on friendly terms with your contractor after the job is done, then that’s the sign of a good contractor.
I too, have always been impressed by Michael’s unwavering principle of setting realistic expectations for the perspective client, with regard to construction cost and schedule. In a highly competitive business, I have watched Kavin Construction lose work rather than deliberately deceiving a perspective client into signing a contract and ‘looking for ways to make it up later’.
In my opinion, Kavin Construction has always been at the top of a very, very short list of qualified custom home builders here in Southern California. Through good and bad economic times, Kavin Construction remains a stable and trusted force here in Los Angeles. Their refusal to compromise quality and professionalism makes them a top choice.
Multiple Projects for Years
I have known Michael Kavin and Kavin Construction for over 16 years, and through the years have built many large and small scale custom residential projects together. I have always been impressed with Kavin Construction, and by Michael Kavin’s ability to surround himself with truly qualified professionals who have a thorough understanding and enjoyment of fine home building. As an Architect, it makes my job easier.
Multiple Projects Over Years
Kavin Construction has always impressed me with their quality work and personable and qualified Construction Managers. Their proposals are undoubtedly the most detailed I’ve seen in my more than 18 years in the industry. All of this leaves little chance for change orders or Client dissatisfaction. Kavin Construction is ‘tops’ on my referral list to Clients.
Multiple Projects Over Years Including His House
As a client representative, I have worked with Kavin Construction for 18 years. During that time, Kavin has always performed as promised, on time and on budget and to the satisfaction of some very discriminating personalities. When it came to hiring a contractor to build my own dream house, without hesitation I only made one call, to Michael.
Kavin Construction performed as promised, on time, on budget. Most importantly, the finished project looks great.
I wanted to write and let you know what a pleasure it was to work with Hugo. He worked so hard from start to finish and really made the experience as a whole enjoyable. Throughout the project we enjoyed his company, trusted his opinion and felt like he always had our best interest at heart. He is a genuine, hard working, knowledgeable project manager. I am truly going to miss seeing him almost everyday. Our house if everything we hoped for and we are thrilled with the end product. We are very happy we decided to go with Kavin Construction and we will definitely be recommending your company to others.

Kavin Construction delivers on their promise, they are quick, affordable, and clean and the work is exceptional. They are enthusiastic, look at every project as an adventure and have the experience to match their enthusiasm. I highly recommend working with them.
Complete Home Remodel
Kavin Construction did a complete remodel of the house that I grew up in. Michael Kavin is a terrific contractor – he has always been so professional, honest and helpful – constantly working with us to find solutions to any issues that arose during construction, as well as always offering support and assistance even after the construction was completed. This is very rare in my experience with contractors. I can always count on Michael Kavin to explain things to me in great detail and guide me through the stressful process of making difficult choices during construction. Kavin Construction made the remodel experience relatively worry-free.
Complete Home Remodel
I recently inherited the house in Beverly Hills that I grew up in. My family has owned it for 50 years; and, nothing has really been done to it for 40 years. My Husband and I decided to move into the house and have it completely renovated. Since I lived in Arizona at the time, I wanted to hire a contractor I could trust. We hired Michael Kavin because he has the best reputation in the city… great work, good prices, and is very trustworthy. He honestly assessed the situation and told me what I should and should not do. The house turned out AMAZING…it is not the same house I grew up in any more…it truly is our brand new house! THANKS Michael for a great job!!! P.S. When I was at my Sushi bar in Prescott, AZ, someone we knew brought in a couple that just moved from LA to Prescott, AZ. I explained we were moving back and mentioned who was doing the contact work. The couple knew Michael and agreed…he’s the best contractor in LA. Michael, your reputation goes far and wide.

I have known and worked with Michael Kavin and Kavin Construction since the late 1980s on many construction projects, all varying in complexity and scope. Their responsiveness is truly uncanny and second to none. As a Real Estate Broker, I have recommended Kavin Construction a great many times and they always make me look brilliant. To that end, I only wish I could recommend them more often!

I was pleased with Kavin’s work on the substantial renovation of my home. There was quality workmanship and solid attention to the budget. Michael Kavin was good to work with, and the superintendent on the job was a real difference-maker. They have also provided invaluable support in dealing with ongoing maintenance issues as they arise.

You guys are the most professional, friendly, and resourceful group that I have met in this business! You were able to make a working household of four generations of 8 people continue to live inside the house while conducting the work and finishing within the time limit proposed when we first started the project. Any project comes with its snags, but these group of professionals were able to work through those snags and provide knowledgeable and reasonable solutions to the issues. The work performed by Kavin construction, namely the tireless work, dedication, supervision of Dan Dixon (one of Kavin’s great Project Managers) is surpassed by none. I live in a very busy house with family visiting at all times of the day, both announced and unannounced, and each one of these people have proclaimed that the quality of work for the price paid is worth every penny! I am proud to say that the entire remodel and additions will be because of the flawless work, effort, and resources available to Kavin Construction.

5500 Square Foot Custom Residence
Kavin Construction built our 5,500 sf. custom home in Brentwood and we were very happy with the entire process. Everything was professional and timely. The on-site supervisor was diligent and followed through with every detail. When issues or unanticipated conditions arose, he proposed quick and reasonable solutions. Our home was completed in exactly one year and we still live happily in it, and all warranty issues have been resolved to our satisfaction. We would strongly recommend Kavin Construction.

We are thrilled with the quality of the work done on our home. The project was on time, on budget, and was performed by skilled people who cared about the home they were working on – which was very much appreciated. It’s great to go home to a house that you really love.

We would like to extend our thanks for all that you have done to make our home building experience a pleasurable one. The whole process was overwhelming with all the decisions that were to be made, but you guys were there with us all the way. And we are also extremely pleased with the company’s commitment to quality and detail in the planning and completing our house.
They work to an extremely high standard, and in the (rare) event that one is not fully satisfied, they come back and do it again until the desired result is achieved.
Larry (Newberg) has become like family, and, as someone who is often away, I am happy to leave him with a key and for him to attend to any work that needs attention in my absence.
Recommendations for Kavin Construction are passed from friend to friend like a well-kept secret. This was how I was introduced to Kavin, and having used them to rectify all the problems with my house that were left by the previous construction company, as well as initiating some new works of my own, I can unreservedly recommend them in turn.
Multiple Projects Over Years
Because of their attention to detail and strong focus on client satisfaction, Kavin is an indispensable key component to our projects’ successes. Kavin’s professionalism and experience enable our creative visions to become reality in the best possible way.

Kavin Construction’s quality and service is among the best business. From their extremely detailed bids to their on-site professionalism and quality, they set a standard that raises the bar for the rest of the construction industry.

You hear a lot these days about how important exceptional client service is in today’s economy and Kavin Construction is a great example of a company that lives by this philosophy and in turn, is able to win customers for life. Immediately after meeting with me at the project, Michael Kavin had qualified workmen and required them to handle the complete ground up construction of my new Brentwood residence. After many years with dealing with numerous contractors, I’ve seen it all. Now I’m pleased to say I’ve seen the best.

We have worked with Kavin Construction twice in the last 15 years. I have found them to be very professional, straight forward, and there have never been any of those horror stories you hear about with other construction companies. I would recommend Michael Kavin and Kavin Construction unequivocally.
David and Linda Simon
Two Home Remodels Over 12 Years
We have been clients for 12 years and always trust Kavin Construction to stand behind their work.
How many people finish an expensive, longer-than-expected, major remodel and, at the end say, ‘I love my contractor!’? We are those people. We were extremely pleased with our construction supervisor, the trustworthy subcontractors he chose, the top quality of the work, and the timeliness and care in billing that documented every detail. The owner of the company, Michael Kavin, was always available if we had any questions or concerns. We highly recommend Kavin Construction. They stand behind their work and do everything possible to keep their customers happy.
Kavin Construction’s commitment to quality is unparalleled. Upon starting our extensive project, it was clear they select only the finest subcontractors who reflect their high standards and professionalism. The over twenty-five different trades who contributed and collaborated exceeded our expectations.
Kavin Construction’s project managers delivered. As the scale of the project mushroomed and challenges arose, they offered valuable insights and ideas, only further supported by Michael Kavin’s vast knowledge and expertise.
We were fortunate to be referred to Kavin Construction for our project from a good friend who had a terrific experience with them previously for his own home remodel. We will unequivocally refer Kavin Construction to others!
