Wind Damage – Tree falls on roof of home

If you live in Southern California chances are you have experienced the very strong, warm and dry Santa Ana winds.  They often bring in gusts up to 60mph or more and are known to cause tremendous damage to homes.

Unfortunately, this 100 year old oak tree fell and crushed the garage of a home in West Hills.  Kling Family Construction was called in to clean up the destruction and repair the damages done to the home owners garage.

Below are some before and after photos of the work we did to remove this 40foot high tree.  When the removal was complete, our team built a whole new garage from the ground up.



A (Small) Tribute to Huel Howser



The Los Angeles Times has a nice piece on Huell Howser.


Huell Howser has passed away today, he was only 67. It seems like only yesterday, that my friend Dave and I met him: Visiting…with Huell Howser


And like people who have been interviewed by him, or have met with him off camera, I have experienced his genuine curiosity and compassion–and its real!


It is truly a sad day, my hero, California’s magnifying glass and spotlight, Huell Howser has died. His memory will not be forgotten. Rest in Peace.

Oak Park: Quick Bathroom Remodel

Another recent bathroom remodel we just completed. This was a very quick, simple, budget friendly job. We removed and replaced the old tub with a larger, modern tub, installed a new shower valve and drain, new shower head and trim, new toilet, new tile surround and new tile floors. Below are the finished pictures.

Our client decided to go with a prefabricated vanity with marble top, it turned out really nice!

Recent Wood Floor Damage Repairs

Wow, it has been a busy year! I am finally getting to post all the amazing work we had the opportunity to do over the past year. I have included pictures and comments on a job we completed this summer in Westlake Village. It first started as a simple water damage job, but soon turned into a bathroom and kitchen remodel. I have included a link from a Very Satisfied Customer. Please see pictures and comments below!

Three weeks after dry out, we completed repairing the baseboards, drywall, and cabinets. Installed new granite tops, new tile back splash, new cabinet doors and drawer fronts, all new wood floors, and painted all walls.

Because they liked our pricing on all the additional work we were doing, they also had us install a new tub, toilet, shower valve, faucets, new travertine tile surround, frameless shower door and slab counter top over their existing vanity.
