Can"t say enough great things about Kolin and his entire crew ! My experience from beginning to end was wonderful. Kolin was right there for us throughout the entire project, his thoughts and ideas helped turn our simple ADU project into what we consider to be a truly stylish and functional masterpiece. The entire crew was always friendly and helpful, kept the property clean and were a pleasure to be around. I have known Kolin and his family since we were kids here in Mar Vista and it was a simple decision for me to use him for this project as his honesty, integrity and attention to detail I have always known to be second to none.
Working with Kolin Klein construction was one of the best decisions we've made. The process of looking for the right General Contractor was daunting and it wasn't until we met Kolin that our nerves were eased and fears were calmed.
Upon first meeting Kolin there was an instant connection and shared goal of what it would be like not only to work together, but how to best bring our vision to life. What transpired over the weeks was an incredible transformation of our house into a home we can't believe is ours.
Kolin and his team were very professional, respectful and incredibly hard working. Each time we saw the crew they couldn't have been more upbeat and really took pride in everything they did. And not only was Kolin fair about the numbers, but they finished our job in less time than originally quoted.
To any movie buffs out there I liken Kolin to Matt Damon's character in 'Good Will Hunting.' Will's character saw math equations and incredibly complicated numbers and it just made sense to him no matter the sophistication. Now imagine that type of comprehension when it comes to building, craftsmanship and imagination... thus you have Kolin Klein.
To anyone who is considering remodeling their space, look no further than Kolin Klein Construction.
I was extremely leery of contractors. I have been ripped off, let down, lied to and generally screwed over by several contractors in the past. Kolin Klein changed all that! When my friend told me not to worry, that I was in good hands with Kolin, I was still nervous. My fears could not have been more wrong. Kolin came to view several places with me before I actually found the one I bought. He would always give great feedback that was super useful. Once I found the right place Kolin quoted the price for the job and got started exactly on the day he said he would. His guys arrived at the crack of dawn and the different specialists got to work on their various jobs. He created a free-standing recording studio, with all the soundproofing and special things it needed as well as remodeled the house. Whether the job was digging out trees, replacing retaining walls, building structures, laying electrical, plumbing, installing air conditioning, lighting, painting, roofing, flooring, fencing, security, you name it, Kolin does it. This was an old house with lots of problems, none of which phased him. Under the house was a lot of water, he crawled around under there, sourced the problem, and fixed it. Kolin knows so much about construction he can do anything. He has excellent taste and gives fabulous advice. His team are all stellar workers and experts in their field, every single one of them is a rock star and super nice. I am seriously going to miss having them around. Kolin really is a caring, trustworthy, fantastic human being who assures you it's going to be alright, and then makes it so. I would never use anyone else. If you can get Kolin to do your job, you've already hit the jackpot, the job will be done in record time, will be utterly beautiful and all your dreams will come true. Kolin Klein Construction has restored my faith in the construction business!
My wife and had been meeting with contractors for over a month for a very large renovation. BUT, the moment we met Kolin we stopped the search. We connected immediately, and in just a few moments of him being in the house we were renovating, his ideas where flowing.
He was very honest, open, and full of creative ideas. He gave a very realistic timeline of when work could and would be completed.
We added more tasks to the job, and slight tweaks on what we agreed upon, and he was very flexible with getting it all done, with no fuss.
He even rushed over to the house with 30 minutes of us calling him when the city reported we had a leak. he wanted to triple check his plumbing, which was perfect, of course. But it just shows you he is the type of person to value his work, and stand by it. I would absolutely, in a moment hire Kolin and his team again.

There are four words I'd use to describe Kolin Klein and his construction crew (konstruction krew? no, too much?) - courtesy, efficiency, artistry, and trustworthiness.
First, courtesy: from the very beginning, KK and his team made certain that we, as well our neighbors, experienced very little inconvenience due to the work they were doing (which was extensive!). They introduced themselves to each neighbor, and provided contact information in the event they had any concerns. Once we were able to move into the house, while construction was ongoing, they were very good about letting us know when they would be on site and while there, they were very respectful of the fact that their job site was also our home.
Secondly, efficiency: Kolin and company provided a timeline for completion, and stuck with it - which is unheard of, from what I hear from my friends who have had experiences with less awesome contractors. Every day, we came home to new surprises and were very pleased with the time it took to install the kitchen, lay the tile, paint the walls, build the cabinets, etc.
Third, artistry: despite the aforementioned efficiency, workmanship was impeccable, and was consistently done with an artistic flare. Our custom master vanity is unlike any other one you've seen, and was executed with perfection. Our custom wine rack is the reason why angels sing, and our rebuilt fireplace (which entailed removing an entire section, and then rebuilding it to match the "untouched" portion) looks like it has been a part of the house all along - which in this case, is a very, very good thing!
Finally, trustworthiness: there are few things in life that are more intimate that bringing someone into your home, for weeks on end, and asking them to create your dream - all for a hopefully fair price. Not only did we implicitly trust Kolin and his team at our home on a daily basis, but we are confident that his rates were very fair, particularly in light of the superior craftsmanship.
We are endlessly grateful that we found Kolin Klein Construction, and will be using them - and ONLY them - for all our construction needs in the future.
Kolin did a wonderful job on our property in Brentwood. The scope of the project was:
-Large kitchen remodel, including custom cabinetry that Kolin himself built
-Removal of old ceilings & replacing them with new cedar
-Guest bathroom remodel
-Master bathroom remodel
-Installation of all new doors and new paint
Kolin is a true professional & he has great design taste as well. His team is top notch & worked hard to complete the job in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him for any project.
Kolin is beyond amazing. He completely re-did a kitchen, two bathrooms, and a ton of odds and ends throughout our house. Everything turned out amazing and exactly what we wanted.
He completed the entire project quicker than he had even told us at the beginning and was extremely reasonable with the costs. He is extremely honest, holds his work up to a high standard, and is a great communicator. He is also extremely reliable, always answers his phone, and would check in a lot during the project to keep us in the loop and make sure we were getting exactly what we want.
One of the best things about Kolin too that makes him different from most other contractor's is that he is a great collaborator and has really great design suggestions and a really good eye. He helped us out a lot and our house would not have turned out as beautiful at all if not for many of his suggestions.
It is extremely rare that you finish a job and you still like and trust your contractor by the end of a job but Kolin is truly a rare contractor. My wife and I highly recommend him and his crew.
Kolin finished renovations in my house on-time and on-budget. He's patient with first-time homeowners, extremely honest, and always went the extra mile to make sure I got the best deal from subcontractors. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs a contractor. He has a great work ethic and an eye for detail and design.
Remodeling your houme is a very stressful undertaking and I am so glad I was referred to Kolin by a friend as a general contractor. He made everything simple, seamless, and easy from the beginning. He is extremely careful and thoughtful about all his decisions and his attention to detail is truly one of a kind. He also has an amazing eye for design and his opinion on decisions we made on the house were invaluable. Kolin was always available on the phone anytime of day and he stuck to our tight timeline perfectly, which is a rare thing in the world of construction. I have nothing but great things to say about working with Kolin and his crew and consider yourself fortunate to have him on your job, no matter what it entails.
Being a flooring contractor for over 25 years, I have worked with several general contractors. However, my experience with Kolin has been different in a way where it has been spectacular. He is very organized and always on top of his job and he is always prepared at work. He is extremely passionate with what he does and as a subcontractor, it was very easy working with him. He is definitely a man of his word! I would definitely recommend Kolin to anyone, whether they are in the construction field or homeowners.

Kolin and his team of pros knocked our remodel out of the park! Going into our 8th month of pregnancy Kolin began demo on our bathroom, kitchen and living room. We are now a week away from our due date and are enjoying our newly remodeled craftsman home! Kolin and his team moved fast but did not cut corners. What a great group of hard working gents. Kolins a creative guy who is passionate when it comes to his clients vision and their satisfaction. This man runs a tight operation and I couldn't be happier to recommend his services to my friends and neighbors.
I asked Kolin to get me a new deck to be ready for a party in 2 weeks and he had the old one demo'd and the new one in and ready for paint and stain in 4 days! Impeccable workmanship and crew and I'd recommend him to all of my friends!
Kolin and his team constructed the most beautiful deck off my home which created an amazing outdoor living space. They also opened up a wall to my deck with amazing La Cantina doors. it has transformed my home into a peaceful retreat and given me indoor/outdoor living which created beautiful views. Kolin had very creative ideas and solutions, along with a great quote, and every detail was finished with great quality and artistry. Kolin and his team were professional and great to work with, and he is passionate about his work.
We met Kolin 8 years ago when he converted our garage into a pilates studio beautifully and ever since then he has been our go-to guy for all home projects. Kolin built the most stunning deck off our home, wrapping it around a big California Pepper tree. It turned our backyard into an oasis. In our current home he came to the rescue after our child flooded the second and ground floor. He has also built the most beautiful furniture for us - a hand crafted 4 poster bed that is sleek, modern and beautiful and an absolute masterpiece. He also created a roof top garden on our home, encasing our entire roof top deck with custom built planters. The last project he just completed was a custom desk for our girls bedroom and an beautiful Oak table with seating for 10 to finish off our backyard renovation. Kolin is a member of our family and does anything and everything to help us and stands behind his work and is impeccable in his craft. You will not go wrong in hiring him as your most trustworthy, reliable contractors. He leaves no stone unturned while making sure you are completely satisfied with his work.
-Mallory and Jeremy Woodlee
Kolin and his team are quite simply exquisite. Their work is professional, thorough, mindful- even artistic. It is clear they care deeply about every detail. Their pricing is fair and their attitude is refreshingly positive. I feel incredibly grateful to have found them and recommend them with the greatest enthusiasm!
Finding a professional, trustworthy, contractor with experience, can be difficult.
Fortunately, our experience working with Klein Construction, always produced top notch results.
Their ability to brainstorm and create, or troubleshoot and rebuild, consistently guaranteed a perfect finish, from installing a beautiful flagstone path, to fabricating a custom swinging kitchen door...always on point.
Kolin took on each project with confidence, provided fair bids, and kept us informed of any unforeseeables.
An all around, Ace team to work with!
-L.Jussen/Los Tilos LLC
Kolin and his team have made it impossible for me to ever work with any other contractors! With honesty and integrity, it's no wonder he's in such high demand. I can't say enough about his attention to detail, and his ability to find cost effective solutions for the complicated ideas my designer and I have had in creating my dream kitchen.
Kolin and his team are to only conscientious in their work; each of his skilled workers displayed exceptional manners while in my home, and are a pleasure to have around.
-Dita Von Teese
Kolin and his team are absolute professionals. They take the time to find the right solutions for the job. The work is consistently of quality, on time, and on budget. We have worked with Klein construction several times in the past and will gladly do so in the future.
