Ken and Becky, we want to express our appreciation for the beautiful remodel of our Bay Park home. The transformation of our galley kitchen and confined floor plan into a modern kitchen and open, flowing floor plan makes entertaining family and friends enjoyable. We were unsure if we could overcome the complicated structural challenge of blending the original 1930’s construction with a previous 1970’s addition, but Ken patiently worked with us through several design ideas and coordinated with his engineer to ensure that the project was structurally feasible. We were impressed with the skill and professionalism of the tradesmen that worked on our project.
The remodel turned out fantastic, just as we imagined from the construction drawings. The new portico adds a lot of character and curb appeal to the house and months after project completion we continue to get compliments from our neighbors. As with any remodel project, there were unforeseen challenges during construction and Ken diligently worked with us to find workable, cost-effective solutions. Ken and Becky were professional, easy to work with and really cared that the remodel met our expectations. We enthusiastically recommend that you consider Suffridge Design & Build for your home remodel project.
Ken and Sharon K.
Ken and Becky, thank you so much for making our vision become a beautiful reality. We love our new room additions SO much. We had our doubts in the beginning but you and Becky gave us the reassurances we needed to see what the finished project would be and how great the finished result would look.
I also want to thank you for addressing all of our needs and concerns throughout the project. With three small boys on the job-site, our kids safety was our top priority and your guys did a great job with securing everything and making sure everything was cleaned up each day. They were all friendly and treated our family with the greatest respect. We couldn’t be happier with everything.

We are incredibly happy with the kitchen and family room remodel done by Suffridge Design & Build. The project was complicated and involved major structural, electrical and plumbing changes, combined with my fanatical desire to have every detail just perfect. Ken and his team rose to the challenge, making every part of the experience just awesome. There were no surprises along the way, no extra costs and everything was completed on the original schedule. The end result is the most amazing kitchen and family room, and we continue to thoroughly enjoy it every day.

Dependable. That’s what you want in a company when you hire it to remodel a kitchen. Ken and Becky were the most reliable; conscientious and professional people I could have asked for. I apprecated that they ended the project on time and within budget. My kitchen is beautiful. Everyone who worked on the project was responsive; neat and tidy; and provided the highest quality of workmanship. What a joy.
We had thought about remodeling for a few years and had dallied with rough plans and ideas, however the people that we spoke with never really caught “our vision”, until we teamed up with the Suffridge Design team. We met regularly with Ken and Becky in our home, for almost 4 months, planning and changing various details, until we had what we thought was a finished plan. Our remodel was a large endeavor for us, and we wanted to be sure everything was livable for the Tripp Family of 5, and so did Ken and Becky, so they never pressured us, and after the months of planning our remodel began. Ken had cautioned us that there would be disagreements and disappointments as was went through the remodel process, however frankly there were no disagreements and very, very few disappointments.
Today we are enjoying our beautiful home, and it flows and feels just like was intended. Working with Ken and Becky Suffridge was a blessing from the very beginning, and an answer to our prayers. We would highly recommend their services and expertise. Ask them to see our before and after pictures, as the pictures are worth a thousand words.

We had the pleasure of working with Suffridge Design & Build during the planning, design and completion of our whole house remodel. We wanted to create our own “Shangri-La”. Ken was able to understand our vision, and collaborated with us to transform our home exactly as planned.
Our project included the remodel of our living, dining, kitchen, powder room, and master bathroom, and the addition of a first level family room with a fireplace and a second level roof top deck, and the enlargement of our master bedroom. In addition to the construction expertise required for a renovation of this scope, Ken helped navigate the plans through all the steps required in order to obtain our building permit, as our home is located in a high fire risk area.
We appreciated how well we all worked together as a team, and the regular communication between everyone involved. Ken was attentive to our needs throughout the project, and Ken and Becky worked with a high level of integrity and personal concern from beginning to end. All the different tradesmen were professional and the job site was kept clean and well-organized. We would be happy to recommend Suffridge Design & Build to anyone interested in working with a highly qualified and creative design and general contracting firm.

We hired Suffridge Design & Build at the recommendation of friends after touring their major remodel. We are happy we followed their advice for our full kitchen remodel and home make-over.
The Suffridge Design & Build design process allowed our vision to evolve and change to address our home constraints and budget. Ken and Becky shard our enthusiasm and provided design insight which resulted in a fabulous finished product; better than originally envisioned. Having both Ken and Becky involved was invaluable!
The construction process was smooth and the team was respectful of the fact that we were still living in the sleeping/bathing quarters during the remodel. Unforeseen conditions were quickly assessed, discussed, priced and remedied to keep us on schedule. Our home was clean every evening when the construction crews left for the day.
We wholeheartedly recommend Suffridge Design & Build to help you create your dream home!

Ken Suffridge, performed our kitchen remodel in grand fashion. It is beautiful and uniquely fits our lifestyle. We have requested he return for an encore performance to remodel our patio. He is easy to work with and fair, and an excellent designer and project manager.

To potential clients of Suffridge Design and Build, We are writing this letter to commend Suffridge Design and Build on the recent work they performed on our home and to recommend their services to others with similar needs.
We personally interviewed, screened and received bids from five (5) different contractors for an addition of an upstairs master suite. Most of these screenings involved large companies that deal exclusively in the home addition/renovation industry. We were unimpressed with the other bids. It should be noted that ours is an older home and there were complicated structural issues that we felt many of these companies did not fully take into account. While we had higher and lower bids than that submitted by Suffridge Design and Build, we found through extensive research that their pricing was very fair given their quality of workmanship and scope of the addition.
Moreover, we were also very impressed with both Ken’s and Becky’s ideas, knowledge and professionalism. Their ability to analyze and recommend appropriate solutions to potential and/or encountered problems was highly impressive. They and their subcontractors were always on time and worked tirelessly to ensure a successful completion. I found Ken and Becky to be honest, upfront and extremely proficient in all areas of this project. In fact, we were so impressed with the work performed on our master suite addition that, when that project was not yet completed, we authorized Suffridge Design and Build to conduct a complete kitchen renovation – a second project that also turned out beautifully!
In closing, we would like to express our gratitude for all of Ken and Becky’s hard work, dedication, planning, organizing, expert advice and abundance of pertinent knowledge. They managed to make our addition and renovation easy, fun and exciting. Both projects were well planned, on time, on budget and finished to perfection with a fine attention to detail. We are very happy with the addition of our master suite and kitchen renovation and look forward to other home renovation projects with Suffridge Design and Build in the future.

As a follow up to our room addition project, I am writing you to express my happiness with the entire job, you and the trades people under your management. The job went smoothly, on-time and on-budget. All questions along the way were answered expeditiously while changes and the inevitable construction surprise or two were handled much to my satisfaction. If I am in need of future design and build services, your company will be my first and only call!

We had a room addition done this year and would like to express our appreciation to Suffridge Design & Build for the great job they and their workers did. Everything went smoothly and satisfactorily, and it was a pleasure to have them take care of all that was involved throughout the construction. We did not encounter any problems and would highly recommend Ken who is reliable, efficient and trustworthy. Their company has integrity, teamwork and a commitment to quality craftsmanship.

We weren’t sure where to start our house project until our neighbors recommended Suffridge Design & Build. From the moment we contacted the owners Ken & Becky, they were very helpful and guided us through the whole renovation project. They took our ideas and put them into a 3D design that showed us exactly how things would look before we committed to anything. Once the renovation started, Ken’s son Ryan project managed everything so we didn’t need to worry about anything. It was great not to have to deal with the different contractors, and Ryan was very accommodating and was available on a daily basis to discuss the details of the renovation and how it was progressing. Now that the renovation is completed, we are loving the new design and the extra space and it feels like we’re living in a new home. Thank you again Ken, Becky and Ryan for all the work and making the renovation project as stress free as possible.

Last year we visited the Del Mar Homeshow, and were just shopping around for remodeling ideas. As we spoke with a vendor on-site he mentioned of a remodeling company that he highly recommended for the quality of work and creative approach to design. The fellow vendor walked us over to the Suffridge Design & Build booth, and within 30 minutes we setup a meeting. Ken and Becky visited our home and listened to and looked at ideas we had for the space.
A couple of weeks later they came back with a design that was exactly what we wanted and also included a very creative pantry idea that we hadn’t envisioned. The best part of the design process was the 3-D modeling of the kitchen. With this tool we were able to truly visualize what the kitchen would look like. The work was going to be extensive, but they were highly organized and were highly referred. I will also mention that during the remodel the site of the remodel was blocked off and the construction area was cleaned up every single day. The biggest challenge we faced is that we were remodeling a very old house and it is impossible to account for everything. During construction we had anticipated reinforcing two load bearing walls, but once they came down, it was determined we would need a third. Resubmitting the plans took time and did cause a bit of a delay.
We decided to use Suffridge Design & Build, and it turned out to be the best decision for us. We are very happy with our remodel. We love the open space of our family room and kitchen, and the pantry, the countertops, the tile floor, and…….We just love it all!
