The best part of my job is seeing the smile on the client’s face after their house has been transformed into the home that they always envisioned.

Local Santa Cruz contractor who does it all. From small repairs to remodels, maintenance issues and almost anything that is broken at your home or business can be repaired or improved.

I have been in the trades for over 20 years. I have done it all, from foundation to finish. I started with restorations of Victorians in New York and have continued here in Santa Cruz for the past 16 years.

There is no job too small or too difficult to complete. I take pride in my workmanship and it shows in my completed projects. My specialty would have to be finish work, but I am more than capable of taking on any requests that a homeowner may have.

I got my own license in 2008 after working my way up from being the grunt to my last stint as a project superintendent for a large commercial firm.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

Rich remodeled half of our second floor – totally reconstructing the master bath , adding a washer/dryer room, remodeling our master bedroom closets and taking out a fireplace to add extra square feet. From difficult reconstruction to final painting and hanging of doors Rich was the complete contractor providing expertise and helpful hints along the way. We are very happy with our new home and highly recommend Rich for any home construction project.

Rich Singer is the best contractor around!! I have used him twice now- first for my master bathroom remodel in 2011, and just this past month for my fantastic new kitchen remodel. Rich is very professional and honest in his approach. He always points something out that I had not seen (like forgetting the cabinets doors above the fridge!! – oops). He is always prepared and goes the extra mile too. I kept adding little “extra credit” projects and Rich would smile and execute, simple as that. On my bathroom remodel, I added a second bathroom new vanity, and a new laundry vent. In addition to my kitchen remodel, I got all new electrical lighting in my living room and dining room areas and got my front screen door fixed (finally). I would highly recommend Rich to anyone for any project of any size. He’s the BEST!

  1. David Tausheck says:

    Richard Singer and his crew designed and performed a complete remodel of my 3-bedroom house in Santa Cruz. Their materials and workmanship were of the highest quality, and the result was incredible. I couldn’t have been more pleased. I was particularly impressed with my new kitchen cabinets, counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The new bathroom with tiled, glass enclosed shower was amazing. Recessed lighting, backyard deck with a beautiful arbor, exterior and interior paint, installation of new windows and sliding doors… I think the only thing his crew didn’t replace was the roof! I would highly recommend Singer General Contractor to anybody who wants a quality job done by true craftsmen.

  2. Joe says:

    Richard Singer worked on my home remodel in the spring of 2007. He showed up on time, did the work he promised on time and on budget with exceptional quality. I was very pleased with the results his work and would gladly hire him again.

  3. Lou Albert says:

    Rich and his team just completed a major interior remodel of my beach house. His work was impeccable. He meet an extremely tight schedule and managed every aspect of this complex and high-end job. Rich oversaw every detail and made sure new systems like the wireless whole-house lighting and entertainment system worked the first time. I highly recommend Singer Construction.

  4. Martina Lin says:

    Richard Singer had just finished working on the maintenance of the deck and repair back side of the house to properly re-installed the flashing, siding and trim. I am fairly impressed with his professionalism, attention to details and workmanship from start to finish. Rich spend time to understand what I am looking for and helped me to identify the key areas to work on within my budget. He even stepped in to help with a water emergency at the house when I was out of town. He is honest, responsible and on time! He is also easy and fun to work with. I highly recommend him and his team and would work with him again.

  5. Janet Yantis says:

    Rich designed and constructed a beautiful new fireplace with a built-in TV nich above it. He finished it off with a tile hearth at the base. The end result is drop-dead gorgeous! He took my early-1980s ugly, useless fireplace, with the tv sitting on a stupid table next to it and turned the area into a showpiece! He completely rewired ALL the tv/media cable/electrical wires to a different part of the living room so that when I look at the tv and the fireplace-NO WIRES!! My living room is now a warm, functional, and a beautiful room where we want to be. Rich is so conscientious and meticulous in his work. He is intelligent, thoughtful, ethical, and reliable. What more could anyone ask for? (Can’t wait to have him re-do my kitchen!)

  10. Linda B says:

    Rich Singer did a fantastic job on a ton of stuff around our vintage 1926 house including installing a glass and metal stove hood (vented through the roof) and metal surround in the kitchen; replacing 2 ceilings; and building an art studio (with a very cool custom triple-set of hanging exterior doors and swing out windows). He is a craftsman who has a good eye and pays attention to detail.

    Rich was a breeze to work with. He was prompt, communicated schedules and procedures exceedingly well, and was quick and neat. We did not always know what we wanted, but he was patient and calm with making last minute changes. We will be hiring him in the future for more renovation. We highly recommend Rich for small to large construction projects.

  11. John B. says:

    These guys do fantastic work – they did a superb job fixing up our recently acquired house in Capitola – from electrical and cabinetry work to installing hardware (e.g., water filter, plumbing, storage racks) to refurbishing/replacing redwood fencing. They kept to schedule and were consistently reliable/dependable — even coming out after hours to help tackle an emergency situation (water shutoff on Thanksgiving). Highly recommended!

  12. Darci Davis says:

    Rich not only did an awesome job with my Dad’s condo doing but was also a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend his services!

    We have been trying to get my Dad’s home ready to be put on the market, and he was really honest about what he thought HAD to be done, as opposed to over selling us on work that wasn’t necessary. He even went to Home Dept with my Dad to pick out materials thus saving us more money in the long run and keeping us under budget! Just like his previous clients have commented on, he does quality work and goes above and beyond.

  13. Robert Azensky Fine Art says:

    Richard completed my move in punch list to my new gallery space, quickly and on budget. Excellent work ethic and superior craftsmanship throughout the entire project. I enjoy working with Richie and he makes the process smooth and easy with no surprises.
