“I hired Paul to install a “french drain” around my home, which was subject to extreme flooding during storms. My drainage issues were fairly complex and problematic, so I interviewed several drainage specialists, each of whom had slightly different recommendations. As a single woman homeowner, it was important to me to work with someone who listens to my ideas and questions and collaborates on solutions. Paul was very easy to work with, open to collaboration, and very patient in explaining the complexities of how subdrains work. His crew was very professional, and the end result is working out great! No flooding whatsoever this winter. His bid was slightly higher than some others I got, but I it was definitely worth it for the excellent job he did.”

Elizabeth R – Berkeley CA

“Carty Construction was not the cheapest bid we got, but Paul Carty and his crew know their stuff.  In the words of our neighbor, when he saw the work they were doing on our property “that’s the right way to do it, that’s how we should have had our drainage done too.

Paul came out 3 times to discuss the planned work with me to make sure we were aligned as to what needed to be done.  He answered every question very knowledgeably and with enough detail to make us comfortable.  His team did a great job and even though it ran a little longer than we expected, the team was thorough and detailed and took their time to do it right.  They responded very quickly to any requests (which were few) and were attentive to our feedback.

Paul was also very creative in helping us think through the drainage system and come up with solutions.  We would definitely hire him again.”

Seema L – Cupertino

“We had a subterranean drainage trench and drains that needed to be installed at our duplex to forestall more flooding and damage to the foundation.  Our duplex is on a double lot, and there was a lot of ground to cover. Not only was Carty Construction the most reasonable bid we got, by a very good margin, but they were quick, extremely clean, and the job passed inspection immediately.  They were also responsive and accessible in scheduling the job. We would and will gladly call Carty Construction again to do any other construction jobs we can’t  do ourselves.”

Maria A – SF

“This was a great experience. Paul came out to take a look at the drainage situation at my house, since I was seeing some water damage on one of our bottom floor walls. I also pointed out several structural concerns I had, and Paul recommended a drainage/structural engineer, who ended up putting a full drainage design plan together for me. Paul’s bid was super reasonable and so I was happy to hire him and his team for the job. His crew was fantastic. They came out and quickly took care of the job in 5 days. They were friendly and knowledgeable and their work looks great! I highly recommend.”

Matt M – Oakland

“Several years ago I hired Mr. Carty to fix drainage problems around my home in Berkeley. I got several quotes, and found his to make the most sense in terms of work needed, and also to be reasonably priced (other people who came out gave higher estimates, and they felt more work needed to be done – french drains around all sides of the house, etc…). I hired him and he did excellent work! Our moisture problems under the house were solved, and we have had no further problems.  Flash forward to today (4 years later). I did not get regular servicing on my sump pump (my fault- I forgot to follow up) and it was not seeming to function correctly (It turned out to be clogged). I called Mr. Carty and he remembered our job and sent his colleague out to our property, who fixed the problem.  I have have now scheduled regular maintenance for our sum pump and drain system. This work is also reasonably priced.  The most amazing part of the experience is that Mr. Carty took my call on a Sunday afternoon while he was on vacation and sent an email to his colleague to follow-up, which happened within 48 hours.  This is a company with amazing service, and I recommend it highly!!”

Carolyn T – Berkeley

“We have nothing but good things to say about Paul and his crew. The work was done quickly, as described and the results are amazing. I can not believe how much water was under our home.

Paul made this experience as painless as possible. Thank you, I highly recommend.”
