“Gina helped us with a bathroom renovation in a circa 1900 Victorian in SF. She and her team are true professionals. She was right on budget and timeline. She was willing to help with as much or as little design work as needed. She took great care to minimize dust and impact to the other living areas of the house. I would definitely recommend her to any friend!” HU-66687013

“I have worked with Gina and her crew on numerous jobs now. That in itself speaks volumes. She has a trustworthy and caring crew that completes jobs in a timely manner, with impeccable workmanship. I plan on hiring Centoni for future projects!” Jeffrey Ralph

“I highly recommend Centoni Restoration & Development. We used them to add a bathroom, attic storage access, and central heat. The results were flawless and on budget! Gina and her team were professional, responsive, and communicative. We always knew what was happening and what decisions needed to be made. I especially appreciated how available and transparent Gina was throughout the process and how respectful her entire team was of our home (which we still lived in during construction). I would hire Centoni Restoration & Development for future projects.” Katrina K

“We worked with Gina and her team on our full-scale renovation on our San Francisco Edwardian flat. Our project spanned from March 2018 – October 2018 (we moved back in early November) and included adding on 400+ square feet of living space by converting our unfinished basement storage area to a master suite, a full kitchen remodel, multiple bathroom remodels, building functional closets, creating a laundry room, performing vital structural work, and many other things I’m probably forgetting. Gina even proposed reversing the lay-out of the flat to move the living room to the back of the house. We were initially resistant because it was such a radical change in our minds. But, we are SO glad that we took her advice on this decision and this advice really demonstrated Gina’s keen design expertise. During the design process, Gina worked closely with us to understand our vision for the project and helped develop an amazing layout that is much more functional and also looks beautiful. Our one key design principle was that we wanted to keep all of the amazing details of our Edwardian home, while upgrading it to 2018, and Gina’s design and her team’s execution was perfect in this regard. Everyone comments about these small details and how the house still feels classic, which brings a smile to our face every time we hear it. Throughout the process, we genuinely loved working with Gina and her team, which I’m sure isn’t something everyone says about their contractor. She’s extremely communicative, always willing to hop on a call, or meet you in person to discuss your questions and concerns. To stay up to date on the project, we did weekly walkthroughs and/or emailed photo updates when scheduling didn’t allow for an in-person meeting. This ensured that there were very few surprises along the way. The entire project was extremely well organized and Gina did a great job at explaining what the key dependencies and decisions were in order to keep the project moving forward. With every large project, there are going to be unforeseen issues and even disagreements. However, I always felt comfortable bringing them to her attention, and appreciated Gina’s collaborative approach to working to a resolution that we were both happy with. Again, I’m not sure everyone can say that about their contractor. It’s clear to us that Gina’s crew is extremely skilled at what they do, and everyone she hires takes great pride in their work and holds themselves to a very high standard. We can’t thank Gina and her team enough for their amazing work at renovating the home that we will raise our family in!” Nick Leader

“We absolutely love the results of our remodel. We added a bathroom to what was a large laundry and storage area and then remodeled the existing bathroom to accommodate a laundry closet and still have a full updated bathroom. The best part of working with Gina was that she was always available and often onsite. There were minimal delays and work was continuous. I was home for most of the construction with a new baby and the crew was respectful and as clean as construction can be. Gina provided great options on all aspects of the design and was flexible with us bringing our own ideas to the table. As with any construction project, you need to go through your contract with extreme detail. We had a couple of surprises, but in the end only went about 10% over our initial estimate.” J Glea

“Excellent attention to detail – we appreciated her expertise and design choices/recommendations. She recommended high value choices in terms of layout/architecture and design/finish details. Very definitive – telling us yes or no on project choices when other design/build firms were less helpful. Would definitely return to her for repeat business – and she’s been incredibly helpful after the project finished with follow up details, questions and projects. We still communicate with her regularly and as needed two years after the project has finished.” K C

“We would like to give a big thank you to Gina Centoni and her team for the great work they did on our bathroom remodel a couple of years ago. And we’d like to recommend Gina to anyone looking for this type of big project. Ours is a single family home of a vintage San Francisco Victorian/Queen Anne type. It had an old-fashioned bathroom that was two separate smaller rooms, one with tub and sink, and another with only the toilet. Gina was able to combine them into one spacious room making it much easier to move around. We had decided to stay in our home long term and the bathroom was designed to fit our current and future needs. For example, we replaced the tub with a large walk in shower. Decorative, yet ADA compliant features were added like safety grab bars and a low profile curb. Gina helped us find many useful accessories. Especially appreciated were the beautiful and ecologically-friendly locally made Fireclay hand-painted tiles which we got at a discount. They really gave the bathroom an extra sense of style and color. The space is so much more functional and stylish now, but still has the historical charm of the rest of the home. The workers who did the work couldn’t have been more careful and accommodating to dealing with dust and safety concerns. The whole team did a great and super professional job and did it in the time frame and budget that we all agreed upon. They were also lovely people to work with. We have really enjoyed the comfort and beauty of the work they put into making this bathroom special!” Norita Vlach

“Our family owns an 1875-vintage Victorian in the Alamo Square Historic District. Parts of the kitchen hadn’t been remodeled since the 1920s and the parts that had been remodeled by the previous owners, were falling apart. Although we were initially focused on the kitchen and family room, as the project progressed, we learned that the previous owners had skimped on the upstairs master bath and the shower was leaking into the kitchen. So, we expanded the project to include the bathroom. I love our new modern kitchen and family room. It’s open and comfortable enough for all our kids and grandkids to gather for an afternoon and dinner—12 of us, so far. And, my husband loves this new surround sound music system built into the walls all around the house. Gina has wonderful taste and an excellent sense of scale and space. Although it’s modern, it conforms to the Victorian nature of the house—something I know Gina specializes in doing. The bathroom is breath-taking—with a large glassed in shower, a gorgeous soaking tub, and 2 walls of windows. I love taking visitors upstairs and watching them gasp when they walk into the bathroom. During the project, Gina was right there every time I needed her. We love Centoni, Inc. and have already referred them to our friends.” Judy Ford

“We first met Gina when she helped us replace our original wood windows (with new custom wood windows) several years ago and then hired her again for our kitchen remodel in 2013. We did a full kitchen remodel down to the studs and removed the wall between our kitchen and dining room for a more open concept. I can’t say enough great things about Gina and her team. Communication is key and she ALWAYS kept us up-to-date on exactly what was happening each step of the way. Her team is also amazing. They were at our house every day exactly on time (never once late) and left the space neat and tidy every single day. There were many days I was working at home while they were there and they were always very kind and respectful. I cannot recommend Gina and her team enough. I have worked with many contractors and her customer service and communication put her in a league of her own. I have referred her to many friends and would give her 10 stars if that was an option.” rlbj4752

“We hired Gina and her team to remodel our Edwardian flat. We needed a layout that would give us more room for entertaining, and a complete remodel of our kitchen and bathroom. Gina was fantastic from the start- she met with us multiple times before we even hired her, and gave us so many excellent suggestions. Everything was done on time- her crew never missed a single day at work. Everyone was very pleasant, accommodating, and extremely professional. We were so impressed with the skill level of everyone who worked on our home. We were always notified of every purchase and every expense so that we could agree or decline. Because our home is so old, a few unexpected situations occurred, but Gina and her team were able to problem solve and take care of everything beautifully. We felt like she really listened to us and gave us what we wanted and needed- sometimes before we realized we needed it! Because this was the first time we remodeled, we were a little nervous about the process. We had heard so many horror stories from other people who had miserable experiences. We are happy to say that not only was our experience not miserable, we really enjoyed it! Gina held our hands through the whole process, and made it painless. And we agree with other reviewers- we are always happy to see her around town!” diannemogannam

“We hired Centoni Restoration & Development to remodel our flat. The job consisted of a full kitchen remodel, the conversion of a large bedroom into a dining room and living room, and the conversion of the former dining room and living room into two separate bedrooms. We were extremely pleased with Centoni Restoration’s performance throughout the process. Gina gave us great advice during the design phase and the project execution was perfect (on time and on budget). We also appreciated that everyone on the Centoni team was professional and pleasant to work with. Perhaps the simplest way of describing our experience is to note that we happily recommended Centoni Restoration to our friends and are always happy when we are fortunate enough to run into Gina while out and about in town.” knuckles0810

“Gina and her team just completed extensive work on my 1930s flat – remodeled kitchen and the existing bathroom, and added a master bathroom. Overall, I was very pleased not only with the quality of the work, but also with the level of professionalism. Gina made the process as pain-free as it could reasonably be through regular communication and expert advice on a wide range of construction and design matters. I was wary of the renovation process given all the nightmare stories about contractors, but I did not experience this at all. The project was done on time for the most part and the crew was always courteous. It felt like a true partnership throughout the process. Most of all, I am very happy with the end product and would highly recommend Gina and her team.” eycsfca

“Gina and the team helped us customize and finish the facade of our house. From color recommendations – to custom windows and hand railings – to stock (but special) hardware – the house looks amazing and we are so pleased and proud each time we walk in the door! We plan to work with Gina and the Centoni team for our next projects from the big (kitchen re-model) to the smaller (built in shelves). Attention to detail and follow up are both amazing!” kindley

“My partner and I worked with the owner of this firm on a complete kitchen remodel (with tear down of a wall separating our kitchen and DR, inc. structural reinforcement) over the last 90 days. Gina Centoni’s reliable, efficient and competent team replaced all of the plumbing in our 80 year old house in the Outer Richmond, including some unexpectedly horrible pipes leading to our upstairs bath, ripped out all of the plaster and nob and tube wiring and replaced everything with new sheet rock, appliances, tile, stone and wood flooring to match the original Tiger Oak. They were tidy and courteous. Gina encouraged us to be highly involved throughout the project, recommended vendors, antique stores, and suppliers down to every last detail on finishes, light fixtures and cabinetry hardware. She was very responsive when we had questions and issues, was on-site regularly, and was generally a pleasure to do business with. I interviewed many firms for this job over the course of a year and Gina stands out among her peers as professional and passionate about getting the job done right. She has a keen eye for detail and demonstrated a dedication to preserving the historic aspects of our house that give it the most charm and elegance. We highly recommend her for anyone considering renovation work – large or small.” paulasue535

“We needed our 1950’s bathroom renovated but didn’t know what was possible given our space and budget. Gina provided lots of ideas and gave us realistic costs for each decision. For example, we thought we would replace our original 1918 bathtub, but she costed it out and we ultimately decided to leave it in and have it refinished, saving us about $5000. The Centoni workmen were considerate, careful, cleaned up every day after finishing their work, and keep us current with the progress of the renovation. Our friends told us that bathroom and kitchen renovations are horrible experiences, but we were so pleased that Gina and the group make it bearable. The final results are amazing and now we wonder why we didn’t do the renovation years ago. We give Centoni Restoration our highest recommendation, and have used them again for other projects.” guisardegirl

“Centoni Restoration remodeled my master bathroom last year. Gina and her crew were nothing but professional, punctual, and polite. Gina is a perfectionist and will not consider your project finished until she knows you are happy. She actually tweaked things that I hadn’t even noticed! She is easy to work with, has lots of great ideas and will keep your costs in line with your budget. I have done many renovation projects here and in Michigan and she is heads above the rest, in my opinion.” kcd1024sf

“Centoni remodeled the dated kitchen in our old Victorian. We relied on their expertise to 1. help us revise and implement the design concept we had in mind; 2. source materials from local and specialty shops necessary for the project; and 3. carry out the construction work and manage the entire project. We wanted a builder that understood Victorian homes, and the special challenges they present. Centoni excelled at every requirement, providing us with a kitchen that suits both the age of the house and our lifestyle, and finishing the project on time and budget. We look forward to working with them on the next project!” raylaboyd
