Contractor for new bathroom in Oakland Hills?

Asked by Katie Daire, Piedmont Pines, Oakland, CA Wed Jul 3, 2013

We want to add a new bathroom to our home, and are looking for any contractor/designer/architect recommendations. The house is in the Oakland Hills, and ideally the bathroom would be built in the space on the bottom floor that opens into a random dirt "room" that's the hill we're built into (like most Montclair/Piedmont Pines homes I've seen--not sure how else to describe it!).

Any recommendations of where to start or experiences others have had would be helpful. Thanks!

Hi Katie -

Happy New Year! You may have already completed your bathroom addition by now, but this is still a relevant question as my clients often ask for contractor recommendations so I wanted to post a response. I have personally used Alward Construction for a large renovation/addition, and they are fantastic. They are based out of Berkeley. I highly recommend reaching out to Keith Alward and his team.

Hi Katie,

I highly recommend Karen Dinardo with Dinardo Design & Construction. She has extensive experience with bathroom and kitchen remodels in the Oakland Hills and her work is top notch. She is very reliable and detail oriented, below is a link to her website.


Best of luck with the bathroom addition!
