About Us

Since 1999, Elite Construction has been building and remodeling homes that our clients love to be in, while maintaining a level of professionalism that makes them even more comfortable.

In the process, we’ve built ourselves a company that has grown continuously every year. We’ve also built a 5-star reputation on Yelp and Houzz and we have a long list of satisfied clients, who refer us over and over again.

A Certified Green Builder and member of the National Association of Remodelers Inc (NARI), Elite Construction has received awards from Best of Houzz, The Sentinel, Good Times, and the City of Santa Cruz Green Building award.  Our work has been published in Remodeler Magazine, the Santa Cruz Sentinel, and featured on HGTV.
