Shaz just wrapped up a 6-month rebuild of a house across the street from us. Neighbors are never happy when they have to put up with construction which doesn’t benefit their own house, but Shaz and his crew really went out of their way to be good neighbors. They cleaned up their worksite every night, they were considerate with material delivery and storage, they never hogged precious parking spaces. And Shaz himself made sure to keep the lines of communication open at all times, so if we had any concerns it was easy to mention them and Shaz would take care of it.
Did I say that construction across the street doesn’t benefit our own house? It actually does, in a big way. Now the house we see from our front window is a pleasure to behold rather than the eyesore it was. It brings up the value of the whole neighborhood. From a neighbor’s perspective, this was painless construction which benefitted the whole street.

We have used Shaz Construction for 3 projects at our home. The most recent one was a major exterior project that involved replacing siding, windows, roof and a complete paint job. Shaz did a wonderful job with everything, and we now have a beautiful new home to admire on the outside. He was there every day working and overseeing his workers to make sure everything was done correctly and then some. His attention to detail was observed by several neighbors who would stop and comment about the handcrafted work he was doing. He never took short cuts or used inferior materials- only the best. We know our house is better built now than it was when it was brand new. We appreciate all his hard work and recommend his services to anyone who truly wants quality work and service.

We've had the pleasure of using and looking at the stylish bathroom you remodeled for us. Everything is working perfectly and we no longer fret about the floor or tub giving way because the beams are ready to cave into the basement. Our newly installed pipes drain swiftly; the fixtures look and work perfectly; the outdoor vent pipe and re-graded asphalt landing drained perfectly in the recent rain; the shower and floor tile fit perfectly and everything you did to improve the home is greatly appreciated. Had it not been for you, we would have never known that the heater was not properly vented and might result in a fire. It's was re-vented at no cost to us and now the heater totally heats the entire home within ten-minutes of being turned on . . . it's glorious!
We don't know what we would have done without you; thank you so, so much for your major efforts on getting our home properly repaired. As you're aware, we'd use your services in the future.

I appreciate the wonderful job you did when I needed a new bathroom due to a leaking shower and resulting dry rot. You did extensive unseen rebuilding and designed and completed an entirely new bathroom. You and your helper came every day until the work was completed. What started out to be a dismal upset, ended up to be the delight of a new bathroom that is a pleasure to see and use.
I am pleased to recommend Shaz Construction and Design, and its owner Firooz Sahaleh, known more intimately as 'Shaz', for all construction, remodeling or renovation projects that you may envision.
Shaz has worked on two extensive repair and upgrading assignments for me in Sausalito, during the better part of one year during 2011 and 2012.
He is capable of all types of construction projects and possesses skills in all phases of construction, including all exterior and interior projects, from the very basic heavy supports and new concrete surface for a four-car carport, to complete replacement of dry-rot damaged sub-flooring and complete remodeling of bathrooms and kitchens, to interior and exterior painting, to electrical and plumbing requirements, as well as skylight and window and deck doorways. In short, Shaz is a jack of all trades and a master of all trades. If very specialized work is required, such as hardwood floors, new carpeting or the installation of a gas insert for a fireplace, he has worked with many specialists in such areas and can serve as a general contractor selecting the most expert ones and supervising their work.
Shaz is punctual, keeps his promises, is realistic in time and cost estimates, and most importantly, has an old-world pride in the quality and look of any construction project he undertakes.
Based on the excellent work he did for me on my two Sausalito duplexes, I can confidently recommend Shaz for any construction projects that you may have.
Shaz and his crew have worked on three of my listings recently. He has a great crew and he oversees them and makes sure that all is done to the highest of standards.. Their finished work is exemplary and he has great ideas and is always very pleasant to work with.

When we bought our house it was a major fixer upper tract home. Shaz was remodeling the house next door, and we watched him build it from the ground up. It was not only the beauty on the outside, but what he did underneath that you didn’t see, that impressed us. It was at that point that we decided Shaz was the contractor to do our house. We had very high expectations, because we saw the kind of work he did, and I have to say, what we ended up with FAR EXCEEDED what I ever could have imagined. Our house is a beautiful, one of a kind, work of art. Coming from another professional artist, that is a big complement. Thank you Shaz for our masterpiece! We now have the nicest house in the area and will never forget what you did for us.
We bought our house for it's tremendous potential and great value. Shaz Construction made it our home! When Shaz presented his design for our home we never thought that it could be the home we had always dreamt of. When finished it was more elaborate than we could have ever imagined. It is truly the work of a tried and true designer & craftsmen.Thank you Shaz & Company for a job well done.
Thank you Shaz for doing an amazing job! Your insights and sense of style are as exceptional as your knowledge of construction and design. You were always thorough and conscientious, and kept us well informed regarding timetables and options. We love our "new" house and really do feel like we have found a wonderful new friend.

Shaz has worked miracles and done the impossible! I am absolutely amazed at the extra time and effort Shaz has provided to ensure a beautiful custom remodel with the best quality materials and workmanship.
It was a pleasure working with Shaz Construction to remodel the bathrooms in my home. Shaz and his workers are masters with tile and design. I had difficulty in making decisions at the onset of the project. He listened to what I generally wanted to do and made suggestions about styles that I had never even considered before. It was very helpful and I was delighted with his expertise and guidance. The bathrooms are lovely and I’ve already got him working on redoing the back patio and garden!
Shaz provided and performed various tasks and projects such as foundation, framing, structural modification, and concrete retrofit projects at our facility here in Redwood Landfill. His excellent performance and professionalism is highly recommended.
