Positive: Professionalism, Quality

Great customer service from the moment you step foot in the door to the completion of the job. A warm welcome and friendly smile is there to greet you.I was impressed by the service and quality of their products. I came in for some paint for my house and I got more than I expected.

They showed up on time, worked with all safety protocols, were very professional and kept us informed of their work progress every day. They completed work on two bathroom remodel including floors, lighting and window treatment within a month of the start date.

They also kept us within budget when they could and advised us of items that were of the same quality but less costly.

We would recommend Sheryl and her team to anyone wanting any type of construction.

Once again, Sheryl and her team have completed an outside door we needed installed.  Our side door needed to be completely removed including framing, painting, door lock.   We have had full bathrooms remodeled, new fireplace/entry tile,  new front door with sidelights, (beautiful)  and everytime each job is done to perfection.  This is the only contractor I will allow to touch my home.  
They always show up on time.  Everyone is so nice and very professional in their field of home improvement.  We are always so happy and satisfied.  
Thank you again Sheryl for being the best in the business!!!!!

We had a great experience working with Sheryl and the team. We got our kitchen counter and backsplash replaced. The team was very professional and worked with great attention to the details. Especially the plumber and the tile guy did a great job. Sheryl was on the top of the project and responded timely to our concerns. They finished the job on time as they promised. I highly recommend them.

Superlative company! I cannot say enough good things about Advanced Home Improvement. After avoiding home repairs for 20 years due to lack of funds, ADVI did a complete first floor remodel that produced the kitchen, living room and powder room of my dreams. They were able to engineer the impossible-opening up the wall between my 50 year old, 70's style kitchen and living room, all the while considering my budget. Workers showed up daily, at times promised, and completed the job on schedule. I was able to live in my home throughout the job. Their one-stop remodeling showroom simplified the whole process. Sheryl is honest and delightful to work with. She offers instant text communication, carefully attending to any problems that arose. Caroline, ADVI designer, was marvelously helpful in choosing stylish and attractive flooring and fixtures. I was so happy with the work they did last winter that I invited them back to install new sliding glass doors this fall. Would not hesitate to recommend and use again.

This review is long overdue. A year ago Advanced Home Improvement began the process of gutting our outdated kitchen and replacing it with a beautiful, functional, welcoming kitchen that we love being in everyday. They also replaced the floors throughout our house. Sheryl and her team are professional, kind and just genuine humans. Each day that updated us on the progress, they were so PROMPT each morning and cleaned up each afternoon. From the prepping to every little detail, they were ORGANIZED and PROFESSIONAL. They surprised us by finishing ahead of schedule right before Christmas. We have since had them paint our exterior of our house, replace our front door and do some electrical work in other parts of the house. I cannot say enough about how wonderful each person in this company is. They genuinely care about their clients and never try to sell you on something you don't need or want. They are happy to share their expertise and knowledge and they really seem to just love what they do. We are so so thrilled with the results of each job they did and will continue to contact them for any of our home improvement needs.

Windows - Campbell, CA

I would second the Advanced Home Improvement recommendation. They made a large new window opening in my wall (which involved reinforcing the wall etc.) and installed a new window for me a few months ago. The owner and the workers were very professional and responsible and took care of everything. At one point there was a problem, but they really stand by their work, so they redid that part of the work until I was happy with the result. I would definitely use them again.

Two Bathrooms - San Jose, CA

I have been meaning to renovate both my guest and master bathrooms in my loft for some time. Guest bathroom was a smaller scale job, but master needed a major overhaul. I’ve had mixed experiences with previous contractors and have been in a long-term procrastination mode. Coincidentally I found out that one of my colleagues had his entire kitchen renovated with ADVHI and he was very pleased with the work. He especially appreciated the fact that ADVHI was one stop shop with design service, materials, contractors under one roof and owner. I decided to give Sheryl a call and it was one of the best decisions I made.
From the very first meeting with Sheryl, there is a personalized focus which is consistent thru out the entire project. I was interested in a modern look and Caroline captured what I wanted in her proposals with varying budget levels. Of course, the options were functional, but were also stylish with attention to design aesthetics which I totally appreciate. ADVHI offers a wide range of materials, but you never feel overwhelmed. Best part is you don’t need to walk aimlessly in a giant warehouse picking out materials.
As for the actual workmanship, it is truly excellent. Reid and the crew were on time, respectful, of my space and accommodated my busy work schedule. You can see the attention to detail and skill in the quality of their work. My bathrooms are beautiful. Through it all, I felt a level of assurance and trust with Sheryl and team which is important to me. The entire process just works. I highly recommend Advanced Home Improvement!

We had a great experience working Sheryl and her team in the remodel of our family kitchen cabinets. They were very professional, thorough with attention to detail and had extreme follow up throughout the process. We highly recommend working with this team and couldn't be happier with how the finished product.

What a great experience our kitchen remodel was! Sheryl and her professional team exceeded our expectations the project started and finished on time and on budget. The team showed up every day promptly @ 7:30am and cleaned up prior to leaving every night. Communication throughout the project was excellent. Special thanks to our designer, Caroline, who was so patient with us as we picked materials and made great suggestions. I highly recommend Advanced Home Improvement.

Whole House - San Jose, CA

We needed to remodel the whole condo- 2200 sq. ft. Master bath, guest bath, kitchen, shutters, floors, paint etc. After searching different stores for flooring, cabinets, countertops etc. our heads were spinning, and we decided we needed help. After describing our vision, Sheryl and Caroline came up with perfect solutions to our vision and went beyond our ability to coordinate accessories and color flow from room to room.
Yes, you can find good contractors to do the work, but if you want excellent guidance on the final product, ADVHI is your team.

Master Bathroom - San Jose, CA

I had Advanced Home Improvement remodel my main and master bathrooms in my townhome. It was convenient for me, as I am not fond of going to big box stores to select materials. I went to their showroom and selected/approved all materials for my bathrooms. I'm very pleased with both projects. I found Sheryl and her staff easy to work with on these projects. I also felt comfortable working with a woman contractor (not many in the business). All my concerns were addressed efficiently and expediently. The workmen were respectful of my home and I felt comfortable with them. I recommend using Advanced Home Improvement for remodeling and construction in your home.

“ADVHI did a great job on hardwood flooring our entire home.  We are impressed with the total look.  Sheryl has a knowledgeable, pleasant, efficient construction team.  She was always on top of the project making several trips over to personally check out the progress.  She's pleasant, personable and knowledgeable.  She answered all our questions to our satisfaction.  We highly recommend ADVHI to anyone in need of remodeling.”

Vickie M. - San Jose, CA

“We had a total house remodel done by ADVHI that started Aug 29, 2016 and ended Dec 9, 2016. We moved out of our house for 15 weeks, so they could gut the place. We were very pleased with the result. Sheryl (the owner of ADVHI) and her team were great to work with from start to finish. Sheryl and Stephanie (the project manager) were always quick to respond if we had any questions or requests. Whenever we stopped by to see the progress on the house, Marc or Reid always took the time to update us on things. I would recommend ADVHI.”

Lorraine P., Santa Clara, CA

“I have worked with ADVHI for two major home remodels (kitchen, and 4 years later my master bedroom/bath). My husband and I are so happy with the results of both projects. We appreciate the constant communication and transparency Sheryl offered. We were made aware of any hiccups or hurdles in project completion - most of them due to delays from the city. There were delays in completion of my most recent project - but even with a newborn baby in the house - the men were very respectful, cognizant of noise and respected our privacy. (Did I mentioned we lived in the house the entire time both projects were in tow).”

Margie V. - San Jose, CA 

“I would like to highly recommend Advanced Home Improvement and Sheryl (the owner) for any and all residential remodeling. I contracted Advanced Home Improvement to do a full remodel of my kitchen. Sheryl came to my home to explain the process and give me an estimate - she was both very professional and very personable. The construction team did a beautiful job, they always showed up on time and cleaned up every day. They were also very friendly and helpful. Sheryl made herself available for advice and suggestions and was always very responsive to my concerns or questions about the project. She assisted me with the appliance purchases and all the details of the project. I love my new kitchen and I was so happy with Advanced Home Improvement that I had them do a bath remodel for me which also turned out fantastic. I just recently had Sheryl and her crew put wood flooring in my hallway and redo a small bedroom. Sheryl and her team are a delight to work with- professional, fair and friendly. For remodel projects big or small I would definitely hire this team again and recommend them to anyone who wants a beautiful remodeling job. ”

“Oh my gosh, where do I even begin?  This company is wonderful, from start to finish I was so impressed with Advanced Home Improvement!  We did a complete remodel of our master bathroom, and I literally could not be happier with the result. They helped me so much with my "vision" of what I wanted. The staff looked at what I wanted, then helped me through the process of choosing all the products we'd need. They have their own showroom with samples, so it was one stop shopping. (They're also totally open if you want to go out and find your own materials.). They had me involved in every step of the process, there were no surprises. The people that did the job were all friendly and professional, and left everything spotless when they were done. I will definitely use this company in the future, and I've already recommended to many friends and neighbors!”

Gloria J. - San Jose, CA

“When my husband decided that our kitchen and bathroom needed remodeling, we had no idea of any good contractors in the area.  I still marvel at the way things turned out for us.  We went to one of the local furniture stores looking for furniture and while there one of the decorators offered to help us.  when we finished she gave me a list of three reputable contractors.  Advanced Home Contractors was one of them.  As I looked over the names I decided on Advance for an unknown reason.  Believe me that was the best decision I could have made.  Mrs. Kanzaki told me she had vacation plans and would be out of town for some time.  It didn't matter to me and I told her that we would see her when she returned.  On December 1, 2013 she came to our home to see the kitchen and bathroom.  We were then given all the information and prices that would be required to perform the job that we wanted.
Mrs. Kanzaki was very professional as well as competent and personable.  She assured us that she only hires individuals that are honest and trustworthy and that she does not farm any portion of the job out to other companies.  The prices we were quoted were reasonable.  The jobs began on time and as scheduled.  Her employees were professional and courteous.  They did not waste time and were also careful to clean up each time they finished working.  I found this to be very pleasant because I have had experiences with contractors that were sloppy about cleaning up after themselves.
During the jobs my husband and I made a trip back east and we had no qualms about giving Mrs. Kanzaki our house key.  Upon our return, we found our home in excellent shape along with much interior decorating that we had not expected.  What a pleasant surprise.  I highly recommend ADVANCED Home IMPROVEMENT and wish that the rating could be higher than five stars!”

“I had an 1928 kitchen in a Willow Glen home that needed to be updated–and a limited budget. ADVHI delivered a fabulous remodel that maintained the look and the integrity of the original house and merged it with new appliances and counters, etc. etc. The cabinet work was exceptional. The work that ADVHI produced was fabulous. Not only was the cost reasonable, the workmanship was incredible. The crew was polite, courteous and easy to work with. The job took about 3 weeks and each evening the job site was clean and neat.”
