Bill Dillon was one of the contractors referred to us by our cabinet supplier and we chose him because experienced, professional, and personable; he was also a licensed electrician.
When our kitchen remodel started, Bill contributed some very progressive ideas to maximize the use of our space and worked with our HOA to introduce ways to comply with the latest local building code requirements. He went to great pains (and ingenuity) to contain and exhaust construction dust and temporarily transferred our refrigerator and stove to operate in our dining room during the reno. Bill's hands-on approach, clear communications and design savvy quickly convinced us that we also needed him to remodel our entry closet and master bath, which he added into our main kitchen project.
Sadly, no sooner were these renovations completed, when a corporate move took us away from our newly completed dream kitchen. Needing to make some last minute repairs and updates to bedroom ceilings and curtain attachments prior to holding an open house, Bill came to our rescue with some very timely remediation efforts that enabled our whole condo to look as great as our kitchen. It sold quite readily, giving us an excellent return on our investment.
Now on the east coast, we are on a mission to find a contractor that will even begin to approach the performance level that we experienced with Dillon Construction.

It gives me great pleasure to recommend Bill Dillon for all work requiring a General Contractor.
I have observed Bill's ability while he was doing three projects at Birch Creek in Mountain View.
Bill has a sound knowledge of the mechanics involved in construciton. He is creative and can make structures that are aesthetically suitable for any environment. He is keen on attention to detail and works on the job with his men, making certain everything is done correctly from start to finish.
Each area was left neat and clean at the end of the day. Special attention was paid to safety for his men and the public.
As a licensed C-33 Contractor in California for many years, I've seen good and poor work left by contractors. I found Bill Dillon's work to be well thought out and his craftsmanship of the highest degree — a rare combination in this day and age.
Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions about this contractor. It would be a pleasure to speak with you about Bill Dillon's work.

I would like to provide a strong recommendation for William E. Dillon Jr, Building and Electrical contractor. He recently completed a bathroom remodel at my home in San Mateo. After interviewing and receiving bids from several contractors, we decided to work with Bill. We were impressed with his candor, professionalism, and fair bid. Bill conducted thorough research on every aspect of the project and then discussed a variety of options with me and my husband. We also relied on Bill to provide advice on the design and detailing.
Bill's team worked efficiently and were incredibly neat. Everyday his crew cleaned up the project space, as well as the garage where tools were stored. I was impressed that the remodel space remained neat and organized throughout the project. I was also impressed that throughout the project, Bill provided updates on the project, timeframes, and completed the project within the estimated timeframe. Bill was also very respectful of when my family's schedule and minimized the disruption to our household schedule. The final remodel was beautiful and we were thoroughly satisfied.
About a month after the project completion, I had a minor issue with a drawer and Bill fixed the issue without any hesitation. His customer service was truly exemplary. I am happy to answer any questions via email or phone.

I highly recommend Bill Dillon for repair, construction or building work. I have known Bill for almost 20 years and over the years have had him do some remodeling, kitchen work, add a deck and give me general advice on home maintenance and emergency repairs. Moreover, he has done work for many of my friends, including construction of a cottage, and we have all been more than satisfied with Bill's work. He is a pleasure to work with and I recommend him without reservation.

Bill Dillon does excellent work. He and his team performed an entire remodel of my house and every element of the construction was performed with high quality. They are also thoughtful about the construction. It was not without issues, however. The plans were drawn in a way that showed the bathroom to not be exactly adjacent to a hall waywall, which would have looked odd. Bill's team noticed the mistake and took the initiative to construct it correctly. They think outside of the box, not simply following orders.
They take pride in their craftsmanship and thoughtfulness. Bill is a good communicator and very responsive on text. An essential element for quick decision making, as there are thousands to make during a home remodel. His crew is well mannered and courteous. They take pride in their work and it shows in the finished product.

"I was referred to Dillion Construction by a friend, who thought very highly of his work. I was looking for a construction company to earthquake retrofit my home. I called Bill and he came up with a plan to retrofit my large unfinished basement. I was satisfied with the plan he proposed and had a retired contractor review the plan and the cost. He confirmed my opinion, that it was a comprehensive plan at a reasonable price. Bill and his crew emptied the contents of the basement and got to work. The project came in on time and on budget.
This past Winter I noticed water leaking into our living room and basement. Bill diagnosed the problem and gave me two alternatives to seal the leak. One was caulking with a sealant or a more extensive and expensive repair, which involved removing some of the decking. I chose the later. Our leak problem has been resolved.
I unequivocally recommend Bill and his crew for construction and renovation.

Their attention to detail and innovative problem solving skills shows their experience and knowledge in the industry. I enjoy working on kitchens and baths with Bill because I know they will put the extra effort in to ensure a positive experience for the home owner.

"Bill Dillon converted our half-bath into a full handicap bathroom with a wheel chair accessible shower.  They are able to incorporate all of our needs and ideas into a workable plan. They secured all of the necessary permits and inspections. In order to do the job, Bill had to relocate the bathroom fixtures, water heater and laundry. They found space, to add a full sized pantry cupboard, to the back porch.
"We have been very pleased with the quality of workmanship as well as, that of their subcontractors.
"Bill is licensed contractors, and skilled practitioners, of all the building trades. They stay up to date, on the products and their applications, and want their clients, to be fully aware of the pros and cons of alternative products, tools and techniques.  They set high standards for themselves and sub-contractors. They work quickly and carefully."

"After we moved into our home, in 2003, a friend recommened Bill Dillon to us. Our home's electrical system was a mess, a combination of knob & tube, switches mounted up-side-down, live wires dead-ending behind walls.
"Many of the rooms were protected by makeshift fuse boxes. Bill laid out a plan for us and we gave him the go-ahead.
"As a man, Bill is polite and clean in personal appearance. As a contractor, he explained, in detail, what he was going to do; he left the site clean each day and he finished on schedule. We would recommend Bill Dillon to anyone that is seaking these qualities in a general contractor.
- James and Sharon Lahey, Redwood City, CA

"Bill Dillon of William E. Dillon Construction has done work for us on both our residents in San Carlos and on commercial real estate. Bill is a responsive, helpful, competent and a skilled general contractor. He is extremely customer oriented doing whatever it takes to insure he exceeds the customer's expectations. As an example on a remodel at our residents, it was Bill who recommended we remove the existing eight foot ceilings and create cathedral ceilings to compliment the rooms expanded size, his recommendation was right on. If we had not done as he recommended the room would have looked like a cave, instead it is beautiful.
"Bill, being the perfectionist, also insisted that at his expense he bring back the sub who had done the ceiling taping as Bill wasn't at all pleased with the way the seams looked. In fact we were quite satisfied, however Bill insisted. When the ceiling was to his satisfaction Bill came back on a Saturday to repaint the ceiling all at no extra cost to us. Bill's reason for wanting the ceiling redone was that the work his sub did was a direct reflection of his workmanship and it was subpar. This spoke volumes to us about Bill's commitment to not just meet, but exceed expectations.
"During the work performed, attention was given to keeping the work area clean, managing the dust, by walling off the other rooms in the house and protecting the existing floor by putting down not just drop cloths, or paper, but plywood to protect them.
"Unlike other contractors we have worked with, Bill provided a turnkey approach, providing recommendation on the designer, engineer, obtaining of the permit and recommendations to reduce cost. Additionaly, Bill was on time, worked every date at the site and met our deadline expectations.
"As mentioned, Bill also has done work on commercial property for us, as a result of the confidence we have in Bill we have given him approval to do what he deems necessary, allowing us to step back from the day to management of these projects, the results we have been very pleased with his managing of these projects.
"From our experience and what we know about Bill we are 100% confident in recommending Bill Dillon for your next project."
- Fred and Toni Bravo

"Bill did a fabulous job on our extensive kitchen remodel project. They were excellent to work with, extremely professional and did a great job solving challenges as they arose during the project. Bill executed our kitchen vision and offered up great ideas that made our kitchen better than we imagined. They were also very tidy, making living through the remodel much easier. We would love to work with Bill again for future projects!"
- Jennifer and Brendan Fischer, San Carlos, CA

The crew is respectful of the homeowners' privacy and try to be as quiet as possible. They are a pleasure to work with- smart, dependable and honest. I give Dillon Construction my highest recommendation."

"In order to accommodate an aging family member, we elected to push out our garage on the front of our home and build two bedrooms with walk-in closets, a bath and a deck plus storage space. But then we thought the inconvenience of the addition would not be with the need.
"After much consideration, we select Bill Dillon for the job.
"Now, years later, we know we made the right choice. The work was done without disturbing our lifestyle and the addition proved to be sensational. It is a unit that although separate from our main living area, has give us the extra quality of life that we now have become accustomed to.
"If in the future, we should undertake another project like this, you can be sure it will be Bill Dillon that we will call."
- Mike and Nancy Miller, San Mateo, CA
