Repairs / Living Room Remodel / Patio Doors Replacement
Living Room Remodel & Other Items
We’ve lived in this house in Bennett Valley since 1978, and have done significant home improvement projects every three years on average: expansion to open floor plan, hardwood floors, two bathroom remodels, bedroom remodel, kitchen update, Andersen windows throughout, new decks, etc.
The general contractor we’d worked with so successfully for the past 20 years retired recently and we asked him to recommend a replacement who worked to the same high standards. His enthusiastic highest recommendation was Youngs & Company. And so when it came time to choose a contractor for the items on this year’s home improvement list, we called on Bob Youngs.
The project had three phases:
1. Maintenance Items: Replace the side door to the garage, damaged by dry rot and southern exposure. Rehang four interior doors that were sticking in their casings due to settling of the house over the years. Scrape, sand, prime and paint the roof fascia boards to prolong their useful life, and paint the rain gutters to generally “spruce up” the curb appeal.
2. Living Room Remodel: Remediate the popcorn ceiling and re-texture. Install pot lights on dimmers. Replace 1970s vintage electric outlets and switches with up-to-date equipment. Add crown molding. Paint walls. Remove old carpet and install hardwood floors and baseboards to match existing in the foyer. Refinish the natural wood trim of the bay window and window seat.
3. Replace two 30-year old Anderson sliding patio doors with modern Mil-Gard Essence line units.
All phases are now complete and the finished results are absolutely beautiful. The level of craftsmanship, skill, attention to detail, and pride of work shown by the crew throughout the project has been exceptional. The electrical sub who did the pot lights said the crown molding installation is the best he’s ever seen. Matching the living room clear-finished baseboards to those in the adjacent foyer was tricky because the living room floor is step-down from the foyer. The quality of the joinery in this very visible transition is absolutely superb. The Youngs & Company team member responsible for the painting is a master painter, and it shows in the finished product.
Money: The contract was clear, complete, and the budget and payment terms straightforward. There were no surprises of any kind in the course of this project. We did not solicit other bids. We’ve been through enough home improvement projects to know what’s in the ballpark. Quality is remembered (and you’re reminded of it every day when you look at your house) long after the price is forgotten.
Our house looks great, functions better, has had value added and feels new again. Thank You, Youngs & Company, for a superb job.
Sorry we have no photos to post. If you’d like to see the finished job as a reference, Youngs & Company is hereby authorized to give you our contact information so we can arrange a visit.

One thing and another . . .
We recently bought a tired old house that turned out to have quite a lot of things that needed to be fixed. The Youngs team did a terrific job for us. From installing new skylights, crown molding, interior doors, a hot water recirculation pump etc. to fixing electrical circuits, water-damaged siding, etc. The work done was most satisfactory. Bob has an eye for detail and planning. Jordan and Scott (the hands-on guys) were a pleasure to work with. They know what they are doing and they couldn’t be more pleasant and accommodating. We would certainly use them again (and will if we have future projects) and we would highly recommend them to others.

Master Suite, Hall, Entry Remodel
We just had our Master Bathroom/Walk-in closet project completed by Bob Youngs Construction. A total tear out down to the studs in this 150 SQ Foot space. Outstanding final product involving custom made cabinets installation, glass block, various tiles/various patterns, Granite counter tops, mirror, great low energy lighting, vent fans for toilet and shower, heated floor, re-circulating hot water pump (low cost install and has already saved us $40 per month on PGE) and vanity kickboard lighting!
We were so happy with the results we continued on into the Master Bedroom with new hardwood floors, new ceiling texture, new remote custom lighting, baseboards and paint. We then installed new slate tile and baseboard throughout the hallway all the way to the entrance. We remodeled the entry with bead-board and new baseboards and paint.
That put such a nice new look to our inside entry we decided to have a brand new custom-fit solid wood door installed. It all looks fabulous! Bob was always very timely and his project management skills are outstanding. His two sons Jordan and Timothy are outstanding and they cleaned up every day to ensure minimal interference.
I highly recommend Bob Youngs Construction, without reservation, for its quality of work and outstanding project management – not to mention the fact that they are very nice and trustworthy people who treat the customer with respect. Thank you Bob, Jordan, and Timothy.

In the twenty-five years we have lived in Santa Rosa, we have had some major remodeling work done on our ninety-year-old house in the historic section of town. We feel that none of the contractors we have worked with has ever gotten it “right.” Bob Youngs is the first!! He and his sons did an excellent job of fixing dry rot and other problems, and adding improvements to this old house. Bob cared about our house and really wanted to do the job the right way. Everything turned out perfect. One aspect that sets Bob apart is that he really listens to you, makes suggestions, sends possible sketches for your approval; basically he communicates at every stage along the way. Wow! That has never happened before.
We are happy to recommend Bob Youngs–please ask Bob for our phone number so we can talk to you about the quality of his work.

I hired Bob Youngs Company to repair the second floor wrap around deck on my home. A large supporting beam and several joists were rotting and needed to be replaced. It was a tricky job getting the very large rotten beam out while keeping the overlying deck supported.
Bob and his sons did a superb job. They were professional, clean, courteous, on time and on budget. I would definitely use them again! Thanks Bob!

I have had Bob Youngs & Company do repair work on my home on several occasions. Bob – and his entire team – has done every job with professional excellence. I am always confident of the high quality of their workmanship, and pleased with the finished product. It is a pleasure to work with them.

A Team You Can Trust
The things that meant the most to me in hiring a company to work on my home was finding someone I could trust to do a great job, be considerate of my tenants and help me through the process. Bob Youngs and his great crew did just that and more. Jordan, Lucas and Scott were very helpful and I always looked forward to seeing them on the job. They helped me when I needed it and were positive, solution minded builders. No job was too big or too small. A small job turned into a big one when termites (and dry rot) was found during the course of construction. They fixed it all and went out of their way to work around my tenants. They did a super job and if I ever need work done in the future I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them. If you love your home and need builders you can trust this is the company you should hire.

Meticulous, creative & kept us informed
I used Bob Youngs first in 1990, when he did a major remodel on our home. He was meticulous, creative, and kept us really informed the whole time. At that time I decided I would use him for any construction or remodel.
I had occasion to need his services this year. I had a major termite infestation which actually rotted several members of the frame and involved replacing joists and siding. He and his men did a great job, kept us informed, showed us what they were doing, and completed the job well. I might point out that I am not an ignorant user of their services, but rather was totally familiar with the work they were doing.
I would use Bob Youngs again in a heartbeat. Once his crew gets done with a job, it is done and done well.
If you have any questions about his work, feel free to call me at (707)529-9670.

We are new homeowners in Santa Rosa, and there are many things to be fixed in the house. We had a first meeting with Bob for a consultation. He really listened and paid attention to the details of our needs. He offered very helpful options for us to consider. He even recommended a handyman for us to work with. We are grateful for his caring and integrity.

High Quality Workmanship
We selected Bob Youngs for our home’s renovation and knew this was the right choice from the start. Bob is a highly knowledgeable and experienced general contractor whose easy manner and gentle attitude are greatly appreciated when tough decisions and unexpected obstacles arise.
He and his sons (Lucas & Jordan) managed our project with efficiency and poise. They spent substantial time making sure that the details were what we wanted, and understanding our view of what we thought our place could be. We are especially pleased with the elegant, high quality workmanship. We would recommend him to anyone with a dream for their residence.

Pergola Repairs/ Removal
Our homeowners association takes care of 30 upscale Santa Rosa townhomes. One of our owners used Youngs & Company and recommended them. Not only did Youngs do an outstanding job–but they sent us a written cost estimate revision each time we changed the project scope. AND they provided detailed photographs. This made it easy to get the appropriate approval. We highly recommend Bob and his team AND we will definitely be using them again.

Second Story Deck
My husband and I had a second story deck that needed repair, as water pooled in the corner on the side of the house and made the deck unusable during rainy season.
We were able to contact several people who could “help us,” however, each time we would not get a quote on materials and labor, or the details of how the job would be accomplished were vague and they could “do whatever we wanted.” We feared that we would never find someone who actually knew what needed to be done to fix the problem.
When we contacted Bob Youngs he was extremely friendly and met with us quickly. He knew what needed to be done to fix the situation and let us know what that looked like.
He was transparent in his timeline to the best of his abilities (we were racing the rain), and made sure we were included every step of the way.
The job was completed in a timely fashion and we were extremely satisfied with the work done! I would recommend Bob and his team to anyone needing them!
Thank you so much!!

Your completed total remodel of our home has been a source of absolute pleasure and satisfaction. Throughout the entire project, despite some inconvenience, we were able to remain “in residence,” which was a source of relief on our part.
Not only is your craftsmanship to be admired, your professionalism, work ethic, and “people skills” are to be equally admired. We are totally satisfied and pleased with our “new home.”
Without hesitation, qualification, and with total confidence, we would recommend you and your expertise to anyone in need of your skills.

Although my job was small – it was very complicated – Bob and his crew were able to diagnose the problem and efficiently come to a resolution as to how to fix things. I was very pleased with their work and would not hesitate to use them again for any future projects.
Condo Bath Remodel
8/2015 Updated review
It is a year later and my bathroom remodel by Bob and his sons is still working great and still beautiful. It is great compliment to be able to say that with use that what you paid for is still working well and that you still enjoy it. If ever you need a contractor. Robert Youngs should be your first choice. They were punctual, very quiet (or as quiet as you can be knocking things out) and very clean, during and after. Even when the water had to be turned off, I had time to notify my fellow condo owners, and it was off for the least amount of time. If I ever need additional work they are my first and only choice.
9/2014 Previous review
This summer I finally got the courage to have my one and only bathroom remodeled. It was a very scary commitment, not knowing what would be under the very poorly laid vinyl flooring. I got encouragement and many suggestions from Robert Youngs. It ended up being a very pleasant, easy remodel. It was the only bathroom we had and I thought we might have to stay in a hotel but Robert and his sons made the whole remodel happen without us leaving. They timed everything perfectly. The other reason for the remodel was to make it safer for my mom with grab bars and better lighting. I was asked for my opinion on everything and I got extras that I didn\’t know about like a timed light switch. I love my new beautiful bathroom. Although I have a small condo that doesn’t need much work done now, I would always chose Robert Youngs and his sons for any future work.

A few weeks before Thanksgiving, my double ovens stopped working. When I found which new ovens I wanted, I learned that the newer models were slightly larger than the space provided between my built-in cabinets. I was worried that around this time of year I would not be able to find someone to help me solve this issue in time for the holidays. Fortunately for me I was given the recommendation for Youngs & Company. I contacted Bob and he was not only quick to respond, but he was kind and understanding. The very next day he sent Scott and Jordan to my home to start the measurements. Both of them were on time, precise, and polite. They were very methodical to make sure that the space was the proper size without damaging my cabinets. They removed my old ovens, installed the new ovens, and accomplished this task all before Thanksgiving. I am grateful for the effort that Bob, Jordan, and Scott put into installing my new appliance. I would easily use them again and I highly recommend their work to anyone in need.
