Dr. Gerald & Susan Novick April 2019 "My husband and I used Havens Construction for a recent big construction project. I cannot recommend more highly Havens Construction. Every detail was completed in a first class way. The high quality of work was evident in every part of this large remodel and new construction project The attention to detail was shown by Sanford Havens and how he approached the project. Sanford was always a phone call away, taking care of any questions or changes that needed to be done. He oversaw the project arriving early morning and staying to make sure the day's work was underway. It was obvious Sanford had a good working relationship with the subcontractors as well as his very experienced and easy to work with employees. I am so proud of our redone house, it could not be more perfect!"
Tim McNeil April 2019 "I have worked with Sanford on many projects over the years and always have the comfort of knowing that he is paying attention to the details and that I will be well taken care of. He has built large, new homes for me, done extensive remodels and has handled small projects, as well. San is knowledgable, easy to work with, honest, forthright and runs his jobs efficiently and in a timely manner. I highly recommend Sanford Havens and Havens Construction to anyone looking for quality work with fair pricing while getting the expertise and experience that can only come from decades of being in the field of construction and building."
Summers and Novick Architect February 2014 "In the last 20 years, Sanford Havens has been the General Contractor on a number of projects designed by Summers & Novick. Sanford is rarely the low bidder on a project, but he has the drive to finish the work without delay, the means to finish it completely, and the ability to understand the technical content of the work. Importantly, he has a long-time crew dedicated to him. Consequently, Sanford works efficiently and his workmanship is of a high caliber -- time and money-saving factors. Recently, one of our clients required a third-story telescope observatory to be built, supported from the ground by a complicated steel-frame hidden within the walls and floors of the dwelling. Sanford did the work quickly and made it look easy. I often take it for granted that Sanford will do a good job-- and that's why it's a privilege for me to take the time to write a note of appreciation for him". Leon Summers, Architect
Los Gatos Clients August 2012 "We recently hired Sanford Havens for a home remodeling project, including a master bedroom remodel and new skylights throughout much of our home in Los Gatos. We couldn't be happier with the result! Because of Sanford's creativity and many years of experience he made many suggestions during the remodel that resulted in a finished product that far exceeded our expectations. And just as critical, the process itself was relatively painless. We never had to guess whether things would be on schedule or what would be accomplished when. sanford communicated frequently and kept us informed. His crew cleaned up daily so that when we returned to the house at the end of the day, the house was clean and tidy. In short, we cannot recommend Sanford highly enough".
