Very professional, did an incredible job. Very accommodating during rain with a tarp on my roof. They never left a mess, very clean and considerate of my home.

My husband and I were unexpectedly hit with a complete home renovation late last year. Old home = everything was wrong with it. Everything. It was a daunting task of even trying to wrap our heads around everything that needed to be done, where to go, where to start, what costs would be and so forth. It was an overwhelming and stressful time to say the least. After asking around and not really feeling comfortable with those interactions, I searched online for some assistance — and let’s just say it gave us a big fat hug in the form of Shawn and Leeran Goldin.
Since we have dealt with a handful of contractors (I’ll spare you of the horrendous details), I can speak confidently and state unequivocally that Goldin is a rare gem. Shawn and Leeran are meticulous to boot, VERY professional and courteous, and just all around reallllllly nice guys. As complete noobs to this world of construction, they were so patient and thorough in answering a gazillion questions and keeping us informed (and calm) through the entire process.
They are HIGHLY knowledgeable, honest, caring, and did an incredible job on a complex project that involved planning, extensive demo, rebuilding, renovating, permits/building and safety.
Communication was on point consistently — holidays, after-hours, you name it — and Shawn and Leeran both are conservative AND realistic with what they quote and anticipate. (My husband and I swear that Shawn has some x-ray vision superpower because he spotted things and pointed out issues within minutes of stepping foot onto the property.) I can assure you that having dealt with so many for our project that GOLDIN stands above the rest and candidly speaking, are the only ones I’d recommend to friends/family.
We absolutely adore Shawn and Leeran and after having had so many horrific dealings with other contractors (big and small), I can’t imagine trusting a project with anyone else. While working with them, you feel like this is THEIR home — owning the project from start to finish.
Trust me – go with Goldin and spare yourself of months of mishaps and sanity dealing with the unscrupulous companies out there.

I recommend Goldin Construction as a very competent and honest contractor. Shawn was very responsive and professional. Job was completed on budget and on the date committed to. I would use them again.

Nicholas Keros

Goldin Construction is phenomenal in every way. I have used Goldin Construction for approximately 15 years. They have pretty much every construction need big or small. The have remodeled almost every part of my house, from the kitchen, bathrooms, including new flooring, new fireplace, amazing windows. Shawn Goldin the general contractor is the best I would never hire anyone but him. He also turned my garage into a beautiful studio apartment. I loved him so much we also had him totally remodel our condo in Ventura Beach. Yes he came all the way to Ventura. Goldin Construction is the best. Anytime any one sees his work they ask who did it. Goldin Construction is the most professional, on time, always clean and I have trusted him to do work when I have been away on vacation and when I came back everything was completed in perfect condition. If you want the best shoot for the Gold-in.

Fast, quality, and clean.

Allen Sheldon

I have utilized Goldin Construction for many projects throughout condominium properties I manage. Myself and every Board member expresses their upmost gratitude for a contractor (Shawn) that is not only very knowledgeable, but professional, competitive in pricing, timely in the completion of work, organized in billing for their services with straightforward invoices, and responsive in communication. Goldin Construction is our go-to general contractor for ALL projects. It’s never too big or too small for them. They can do it all, and do it right the FIRST time. You will not be disappointed!

Carolyn Rubio

Very happy with the job GC did for me in Santa monica. Code enforcement, building, planning , safety etc… are very tough down here, But Shawn fully understands the process, He’s a true pro, . If your looking for a great contractor. Try GC.

We gutted our 1971 family room & kitchen and literally rebuilt the back half of our home. This was a significant remodel as it required changes in the structural support of the roof. In addition we built an amazing patio cover that extends our living space into the back yard. Shawn gave us a very detailed proposal and laid out a timeline of what to expect. There were no surprises. His team was always on time and cleaned up before stopping for the day; always respectful of our home. Most importantly, they could do it all: Flooring; Drywall; Electrical; Plumbing; HVAC; Painting; Custom Cabinets; Granite; Roofing; Hardscape… I was very impressed by how versatile they were. Even the city inspector was impressed! We now have a new kitchen, family room (with new fireplace!) and outdoor living space. Our next project will be to remodel the bathrooms. We’ll be calling Shawn at Goldin Construction!

Very very impressed with Goldin Construction. As someone who is constantly in need of a contractor for clients and one who is frequently asked for referrals I have met and been disappointed with many contractors until I met Shawn Goldin. He did a rather large project for a client of mine that I had to supervise as she was out of town. #1-He does what he will do when he says he will do it. Sounds basic, but I have wasted many an hour waiting on someone to call or show up and been disappointed. #2 His estimates are accurate and obviously #3 The work is well done by his neat and polite crew

Lovely L.


Just had these guys build a laundry addition at my place. Super fast work, on schedule and reasonable pricing. Really appreciated Shawns fast communication via email and text. Good contractors are tough to find, I highly recommend using these guys for your next project.

Shawn is the best, meticulous, trustworthy and dependable. Dont hesitate to give him a shot.

I am in the process of obtaining bids for a mid-size remodel of my older home (1921) which will include bathroom, joining some rooms, electrical and HVAC. Shawn has assembled a very professional team to address the issues of an old house. They have come several times both individually and as a team to consult and trouble shoot. I’m weighing in now because I’m so impressed with the level of care taken at this early stage, the ease of communication, the prompt responses, the coordination and the depth of knowledge on these tricky issues.

Kelly A.


Shawn and his team were amazing. They gave us our dream house. We renovated our entire home in Calabasas and it turned out even better than we imagined. Shawn is super detailed and concerned about getting every detail correct. His team were all friendly and covid-safe. I would 100% recommend to anyone who is looking to do work on their house! We already have ideas for new projects we want him to work on!

Heather F.


I have worked with Shawn on several projects as an interior designer and I continue to recommend him for more client work. He’s communicative, and solution-oriented. He’s meticulous and always checks in about design direction which is why we asked him to partner with us on this year’s Pasadena Showcase House. Showcase, under normal circumstances, is a balancing act of time constraints and strict house rules. This year, with COVID, it was a test of will and perseverance. Shawn kept a level head and calm demeanor throughout it all. We were so grateful to have him helping us pull it all together.

Courtney T.


Professional and meticulous. Shawn is a wonderful contractor who listens to your needs and works very hard to bring your vision to life. I highly recommend this company.

Blanca F.


We are renovating our master bathroom and I called Goldin Construction to get a quote for the framing work. Shawn came over, gave a very competitive quote, and even helped me finalize some design plans free of charge. Once they got started on the framing, Shawn and his crew worked very quickly and cleaned the entire site before leaving. We couldn’t be happier with the end results. Shawn is professional, friendly, and does excellent work.

Devin W.


Excellent work from this company–reliable, fair, and helpful with the project. Would recommend Shawn as the go-to guy for any construction, and will speak to him first on all future jobs. Communicates well and is willing to work with others on site–doesn’t have to own the whole project but is expert at all phases and trades so can coordinate well with owner-builders and other tradesmen. Rare find!

Randy L.


They worked seamlessly with our other contractors. They kept us informed of everything they were doing and everything was done on time.

Ian S.


We worked with Goldin Construction on an ADU (garage to bedroom conversion). He was great to work with. We were out of the state much of the time but he communicated effectively through messages and email. He made suggestions about details we had overlooked, and accommodated both our schedule and our overall goals. The quality of the work was outstanding. He saw us through all inspections, making sure work exceeded requirements. We felt like we were in very good hands!

Rhonda S


Always detailed and honest and they do beautiful work

Catherine O.


I lucked out the day I found Shawn Goldin. He has done small and large projects at my house. He makes estimates, sticks to them, does the work on time, cleans up meticulously and does the work with extreme care and professionalism. I highly recommend him.

Eleanor S.


The experience was great from my first phone call to the time that I collected the box. The quality of the product is great and exactly what I wanted and anticipated. There were no delays or surprises. It was a perfect experience. Hire this man!

Ian S.


Superb workmanship, communication, and thoroughness in identifying issues secondary to termite damage. Have used Goldin Construction for multiple needs including cement floor of garage, cement repair of city sidewalk, sewer plumbing out to street, and now extensive termite damage of 2 windows and associated house wall and painting, replacement of rock/stone patio seats that had to be taken out. Tells you what needs to be done and what is optional so you can make an informed decision. Most important is our trust in each other. Thank you Goldin Construction! I never have to worry!

Virginia J.


We are very happy with the overall quality and professionalism of the work. We had Goldin Construction put a new roof on 2 Gazebos and our 2 Story home. We reused as many tiles as possible, and Shawn went out of his way to find the correct tiles to fill in and replace anything that was broken. We had a lot of broken tiles. It’s rained quite a bit and no leaks at all, so we are very happy with the results. The roof looks great from the street also, all the tiles are matched.

The hardest part of doing home repair is finding a trustworthy and reliable contractor. Shawn is the best. He’s honest, knowledgeable, professional and does quality work that’s up to code. I especially appreciate how quick and easy it was to communicate with him. He was recommended to me by a structural engineer to do a structural repair on a house we had just purchased. As work progressed, he discovered many other problems that were missed on the home inspection. Luckily, Shawn does everything. I feel confident that all the issues were resolved, and he’s given us the peace of mind that the house is safe. It was a real pleasure working with Shawn. He has a great staff and their work is incredibly neat and clean. I highly recommend him.

Oy Y.


Shawn appears to be honest, friendly, and to the point. He even gave me a proper written estimate for all the services that I asked about and was on top of communication. Pricing is fair. This put him on the top of my list of all of the contractors that I interviewed. I would not hesitate to hire Shawn in the future and he will be the first person that I call. Thank you!

Mariah H.


Shawn is fantastic: professional, clear, reliable and easy to work with. My jobs were all difficult and required not only skill to execute but experience and creativity to figure out what to do in the first place. The work was all done completely to spec, on time and with the work area respected…everything prepared and cleaned properly. I called Shawn back a week ago to have him estimate a kitchen remodel. I’m looking forward to working with him again. He is the best.

Eleanor S.


The project went very well. Shawn was very professional. He got the door finished in a timely manner with minimum disruption. He took a standard pocket door with wood jamb, and created a beautiful drywall-finished arch doorway. We are very happy and would definitely use Shawn for other projects.

Wendi Y.


I had used Goldin Construction in the past to enclose the front balcony. I was very pleased with the results. When my patio cover needed to be repaired because of dry-rot and termites I called Goldin Construction. Mr. Goldin worked with me on the design and materials to be used as I had specific thoughts on how I wanted it to look. The work was very professional. I am very happy with my new patio cover.

Patricia J.


We got the name of Goldin Construction from Angie’s List. The owner, Shawn Goldin, promptly returned my call and made an appointment to come out for an estimate. Though it was not a huge project, Shawn spent considerable time looking over it, taking measurements, climbing a ladder to see it from above, asking questions, pointing out some other things we hadn’t noticed. He listened to what we wanted, made suggestions for materials and ways to work with the current wood structure, which was sound but had been enlarged and repaired piecemeal over the years. He subsequently e-mailed me a detailed estimate, covering the removal and replacement of materials and hauling away the debris. We hired him because of the thoroughness of the estimating process, and the fact that he answers calls and e-mails. Even when it looked like we would have to postpone the work due to an unseasonable rainstorm, he did not leave us hanging. He both e-mailed and phoned about the delay and then the re-schedule. He arrived early in the morning with two workmen. They spent some time discussing what was to be done and how to do it. Then the two men went to work while Shawn brought the materials. The men worked steadily all day, breaking only for lunch. As a result of the proper planning and the excellent workers the job was done in one day. Shawn stayed late to re-attach some small shelves and things that had to be removed for the post replacement. He did a final sweep-up and removed the last of the debris. When I paid him he shook my hand and thanked me for using his company. We are very pleased with the results. What had previously looked cobbled together now looks very pulled-together. Though some changes had to be made in the original plan to compensate for the old structure we were not charged extra. He listened and asked and the level of communication made for a smooth and successful project. We would definitely hire them again and refer them to others.

Shawn installed a new range hood as well as added electrical outlet for my garage. Had to cut through the kitchen ceiling and the roof. Also installed recessed lights for a closet being remodeled. I was impressed with his professionalism and speed of the work. Cleaned up each time and left NO MESS as opposed to other workmen that I have encountered. Would highly recommend him to anyone.

Betty B.


Excellent. Gave detailed estimate and price breakdown. Arrived on time. Cleaned up each night before leaving. Very reliable and easy to work with. High quality of work. This was the second time we had Shawn and his crew do remodeling work for us. Would definitely call him back for future jobs and would recommend to a friend.
