We didn't say that, they did! Honestly...

What’s Ground Up Builders really like? Homeowners share why they chose us and how that decision had changed their lives for the better.

“I was referred to Ground Up Builders by a friend that already had a solar system installed by them so my expectations were high to begin with. Still I was surprised by the efficiency and communication level I enjoyed. Got consistent updates about everything and always had someone to call. Had a minor set back with the city which was resolved next day. I'm very happy with the work and already sent more friends to them.”

Dan my sales contact is outstanding stood by me all the way through the process. If you choose Ground Up you will be nothing but satisfied. Thanks again Dan and the ground up team.”

“One day we found water dripping down soggy walls in our guest bathroom, and the nightmare began. Through our insurance, various ‘experts’ came and looked, made holes and tried to find the cause. I was whining about everything at work, when a friend told me ‘you should talk to my contractor! He is absolutely amazing. Here is his number; his name is Uzi’. And just like that, the nightmare ended! Somehow, Uzi was able to get right to the problem leaving the other guys still scratching their heads. He and his team fixed the leak and rebuilt the bathroom on time and within budget. Uzi was always pleasant and seemed genuinely interested in making sure that we came up with the best design and best materials at the most affordable prices. We ended up with the most gorgeous bathroom! Of course there is always a downside. In this case, the downside was that Uzi and his team were so wonderful, that we decided to add on a few more projects to their work load. Somehow, everything was again completed beautifully, on time, on budget and with that personal touch that is so hard to find. We plan to eventually remodel the other rooms, kitchen and deck, and there is only one person that I will call: Uzi Ray @ Ground Up Builders.”

“Uzi and his 'Groundup Builders' will definitely be our contractor for any house work needs we may have in the future. We just finished remodeling our new home with him and, what in previous occasions and with other builders ended up being a nightmare, with Uzi it has been the most pleasant of experiences. He (and his whole team of people working different specialties) has been extremely professional and serious about work, while at the same time the nicest people to work with. After seeing them work and listening to Uzi's advice and suggestions for a while we had complete piece of mind leaving the house in their hands, knowing that while we were at work the job was being done at top quality level, all of it while being considerate and respectful to both ourselves and our neighbors -and- meeting their estimates in terms of both time and money. He was always there to listen to our ideas or concerns, he -always- picked up the phone when we needed him, and he always had the right answer or solution he would then perfectly apply. Even after the job was fully completed he came to our house just to have a final check on everything and make sure everything had been done to our complete satisfaction (and indeed it had been, to the last detail). We couldn't recommend Uzi enough, he and his fantastic team are the people you want to have around the house for this type of work, taking care of every detail for the very best results at all levels.”

“We purchased a home and land that was functioning as a business property. The home was built in 1962 and the roof was in bad shape. We did not know the extent till a serious rain storm hit. Prior to the rain, we did our best to repair, re-paint, and even had the ceiling re-textured getting it ready for our business move. Everything looked great until that rain. The evidence of the roof's poor condition was all around the house. Large water stains throughout indicated we had a problem. I contacted various businesses requesting an evaluation and estimate. Uzi was the only contractor that demonstrated a thorough understanding of what needed to be done. He was the only contractor that actually looked in the attic (one company based their estimate on looking at my property through Google Earth!) We had Ground Up Builders replace our roof, re-insulate the attic, and remove a section of a poorly constructed patio. I am very satisfied with the quality and cost of the repair. Uzi even came back after work was done and installed wall-socket plate foam insulation. I highly recommend Ground Up Builders.”

“I had been having a lot of trouble with the city of Glendale for about five years over an unpermitted bedroom and bathroom. Rooms that were already there when I purchased the property. I failed to get a variance to be able to keep the two rooms. So I was going to have to remove them. A neighbor down the street ironically was having a bedroom and bathroom built. I would go down there every day on my walk. Ground Up builders was doing the construction. I met Uzi who is the owner of Ground Up. I told him about the problem I had with the city and he came up to look the situation over. I hired him to demolish the rooms and to do the construction to match the tear down with the existing structure that was left. Uzi dealt with the city getting all the required permits and handled every aspect of the demo. His crew was very professional and polite. They cleaned up every day before they left. Uzi was here every day to see the progress and to see what needed to be done. He took me shopping to pick out certain items that I needed, such as a door and some outside lights. He even had a doggie door installed in my new door. I can't believe the whole project was done in about 3 weeks. Uzi was always there to answer any questions that I might have. Was always available and always returned calls very promptly. I would definitely recommend Ground Up Builders for any kind of construction or remodels or like in my case, tear downs. Last thing, after everything was complete he even bought a ramp for my dog so she could get out of her doggy door easier.”

Customer Solar Success Storie

“I went ahead with ground up builders from the simple reason that they analyzed my need before the solar project. My house was built back in the 1950's and was so inefficient that I was wasting so much consumption $$$ of electricity because of that.

Going solar would be the best way to go. But, I ended up doing a smaller solar system+attic insulation. first they audited my house to see what's need to be done for the best energy efficient as far as dual pain Windows, doors, attic insulation etc.

No doubt, the best customer service and best reputable company.

Adi, the field supervisor was very honest and a straight forward guy. I appreciate that, and for sure found my general contractor also for my future wish list. My neighbor will be contacting them soon too! Go Ground Up...”

“I have considered going solar over the past year, all the neighbors seem to be going that direction so I figured I would find out what the big deal was. I reached out to about half a dozen companies and met with 3, and Ground Up Builders was the clear choice, and have made the process painless. They were professional, helpful and answered every question I had. The install is almost done, we should be up and running in a week! Looking forward to producing my own electricity, and actually turning the pool heater on this summer!”

“I was shopping around for a new roof and I called Ground Up Builders after reading a few yelp reviews, not only were they friendly but they had fair pricing for qualify material and work. Now that the roof is done we are going solar with them as well! We found a company we can trust and we definitely would recommend them to family and friends! It's hard to find a contractor you can trust, and hands down I can trust Ground Up Builders.”

“Very grateful we found an honest reliable solar company to complete our solar installation, after purchasing our first home two years ago our utility bills were ranging from 4-600 a month. We met with Uzi he explained the solar process and went over our solar options. We had our solar installed and up and running in no time. His staff was very friendly and kept us informed every step of the way. We have to say it was the best investment we could have made. Thanks ground up builders for making our switch to solar easier than we expected.”

“We interviewed 5 companies for our solar system and narrowed it down to 2, we heard of Ground Up Builders and figured why not get another opinion. FINALLY our decision was clear. Uzi was a wonderful, extremely helpful, and knowledgeable. He really went above and beyond to make sure we had all the tools available to make the most informed decision. Price: affordable and competitive along with all-inclusive warranties and a very CLEAR contract with no hidden verbiage. Service: timeline was followed, all workers were professional, timely, and great to work with. Follow-up: all questions were answered in a timely manner, all possible issues were addressed immediately, service was simply great from start to finish and even after. Edison was slow to get us the permission to operate BUT I didn't have to do a thing, the wonderful project management team did all the back-and-forth work with them to get us up and running as quickly as possible. I would highly recommend Ground Up Builders to anyone looking into solar!!”

“If you are thinking about installing Solar panels, I have a referral for you! We recently purchased a new home here in peach Hill and used the same Solar company we used for our last home...they are "Ground Up Builders." They are a family owned company and I have nothing but great things to say about both of our installs! The process was extremely easy and smooth and the customer service is amazing! They truly care about their company and make sure everything falls into place perfectly. They do everything for you...I cant stress enough how easy the whole process is.

I had installed the same solar panels last year on our other home and have had absolutely no problems with those either! This time was exactly the same...superb customer service and a sigh of relief. They all have great customer service and use professional installers. If you ever have any questions go ahead and ask, as I will always refer them personally and professionally! They have also been notarized on "the best of the best in the Nation" TV series!

Here is the link for their website as well as the TV series raving about the company: groundupbuilders.com

Here is the Salesperson I used this last time....he was fantastic and he will take care of you throughout your entire project.!”

“Well, after having a good experience with the solar and the roof. Me and my sister really wanted the back yard to be redone with artificial grass and gravel etc. So, ground up builders again gave us a good deal of getting it done within our budget. and they really made it so good that it turned out better then we expected. Adi, the field manager came up with really good design ideas. He did work with our needs and wants, and had great suggestions during the process. He was always with us to make sure everything went well and as we wanted. The installers made it on time everyday, cleaned up after every day of work, they were prompt and took pride of their work. And it was done faster then expected. Again me and my sister nancy are very much satisfied with the results and ground up customer service. If there is anything that you are thinking of getting done at your home with peace of mind from the ground up, I will highly recommend ground up builders. And a special thanks to Adi for taking a good care of us down the line...”

“Ground Up Builders promised to submit the necessary paperwork to LADWP for my Solar Rebate and said that it could take up to a year for LADWP to actually made good on the rebate promise.

Ground Up must have bugged the heck out of LADWP on my behalf because I got my rebate check yesterday - and it only took two months!  Considering my personal experiences with LADWP in the past, I have to give credit to Ground Up Builders for making this happen because I expected getting money out of LADWP to require about as much pressure as making a diamond out of a lump of coal!

Way to go, Ground Up Builders!”

“Great customer service. Compared multiple interest rates from several loan companies. Quick installation. Helped us at 5 am. and on a Sunday with roof issue. Heather was wonderful.”


Rich J – Sun Valley, CA

“These guys were great! They were professional, direct and a very very well done job! They re-did our neighbors roof and fixed their solar panels that were messed up from a different company.

May B – Woodland Hills, CA

“I wanted to go on record by thanking you and your crew for the fine work done installing our new solar panels. I am very satisfied with the job done by Ground Up Builders. Uzi, the owner, answered the phone and he was at my house with his team later the same day. He gave me a free estimate and we were ready to start work later that week. The price was slightly higher than another company I had come out, but I was comfortable w Uzi's honesty and knowledge of the solar product.

great work our roof top looks just right and our energy bill is down 85% which is amazing. I'm sure it will continue to decrease. Thank You very much Ground Up Builders!”


T.S. – Upland, CA

“I have changed my review to reflect what I believe is an exemplary owner of a company who truly cares about his business and the satisfaction of their potential and current clients. Uzi reached out and I'm satisfied with the prompt handling of my prior dissatisfaction.

I do want to want to note that Tom came dressed neatly and professionally with an organized binder chock full of pertinent information for your home remodeling needs. This company was one of the only ones to offer information on major rebates for jobs you were already planning to do for your home.

I will keep Ground Up Builders in my book for the future- thank you Uzi.”


Linzi S – Garden Grove, CA

“Three cheers for GROUND UP BUILDERS, a reliable, professional, well rounded construction company.  We'll happily rate them a 5 Star company for a solar job very well done. 

Their representative, Gregg L, was the greatest throughout the entire process of installing our solar panels, dealing with the city and So Cal Edison to get everything properly completed.

Several teams from Ground Up Builders worked on different stages of the solar panel installation.  Each team was knowledgeable, professional and courteous. 

Gregg himself was there for us anytime we had a question.  We never hesitated to call Gregg to have something explained or re-explained because we came to know he would be willing and pleasant anytime we called on him.

Our experience with Ground Up Builders was a pleasure from start to finish.  We highly recommend Ground Up Builders.

Ask for Gregg Lto be your representative.  He will take care of you throughout your entire project.”

Anthony M – Rancho Cucamonga, CA

“In the last few weeks had some work done on our house through the HERO program,  to include new roof, insulation, solar, and a new variable speed pool pump.

The contractor used by HERO was Ground Up Builders,  owner Uzi Zaray.  Couldn't be more pleased with the work they did and the timely manner in which they completed each aspect of the job.  Work crews were always on time, finished the jobs in estimated time frame and cleaned up any resulting debris from whatever job they were doing.

Uzi kept us informed every step of the way.   Any questions we had were answered in a timely manner, including weekends.

Ground Up Builders did an excellent job and I would use them again for the next project.

Thank you Uzi.”

Since my system has been installed, I haven't had an electric bill higher than $WOW - and that's been through some pretty hot times with AC working hard. I am completely happy with the system and the whole purchase installation process. Can't complain!!”


Sherman C – Los Angeles, CA

“Ground Up Builders was an absolute treat to work with. I called the owner Uzi, and he helped me understand exactly what I needed done. I didn't know anything about solar before the call, now I feel like an expert. They installed the solar panels on the house roof, helped me get the rebates from ladwp and i am paying now a bill that is half from what i used to pay ladwp. I am very happy with the new bill and with Ground Up Builders.”


Arnold L – Los Angeles, CA

“In the purchase of our Solar power system we were impressed with Ground Up Builders professionalism. Prior to the installation there team (Uzi as well) assessed our electrical requirements and surveyed our home to determine the optimum positioning of the solar equipment. During installation the installers explained to us the procedures that were going to occur.

They were well prepared + careful to not damage our landscape and cleaned up immediately after each procedure was done. After the installation was completed they explained the systems operation and procedure for the utility company to switch the system on.

We have been extremely happy with our new solar. We have had no call backs and the system has operated 100% to our satisfaction. Overall the experience met our expectations! My wife and I could't be happier!”


Phyllis J – Santa Maria, CA

“Very happy with the installation of the solar system I had installed by Ground Up Builders. The crew was very professional. Answered all my question when asked.

J.A. – Hidden Hills, CA

“My husband and I decided to look In to getting solar panels since we were paying an arm and a leg for our power bill every 2 months.  We had about 3 or 4 companies come out and pitch to us how much we would save and all the other facts.   When Uzi came to make his presentation, he was more clear and realistic than any other company.   They worked with our finances and got us all set up!    I highly  recommend using this company for your solar or at least having them come out to enlighten you! But, only if u want to $ave!”
