E.L. Shimp Builders Inc. - Superior Service and Craftsmanship of Uncompromising Quality


Traditional values and craftsmanship 

The skilled artisans at E.L. Shimp Builders are dedicated to infusing every project with only the finest in quality products and labor. The Bay Area is filled with examples of late-19th and early-20th century architecture in styles from Craftsman, Cottage and Victorian, to Bungalow, and Ranch. Our goal is for every home we build to take its place among the best examples of home building craftsmanship, and we strive to achieve it by closely overseeing every project from inception to completion, as well as only hiring subcontractors who share our passion for excellence. 

An unparalleled dedication to client service

At E.L. Shimp Builders, our experienced tradesmen treat every project as if it was our own home. We work hand-in-hand with you, starting from the beginning stages. Our architect will work with you to ensure the design accurately reflects your vision. Design at all scales can improve the environments we inhabit. From adding a light fixture to adding landscaping to designing new buildings, it is our goal to make the spaces we occupy places where you will want to linger. Whether you want to remodel an existing space, add to an existing building, or construct a new building, we work with you to create spaces that are responsive to your needs and to the site.

At the end of each stage of construction, our owner/general contractor will walk with you through your home to make sure it is progressing to your expectations, and we are readily available to address your every need or concern from the moment your project is begun until it is completed to your satisfaction. 

So that your dream home comes to life exactly as you’ve envisioned, we also offer the assistance of full-service design consultants to assist in the selection of custom paint, tile, flooring, fixtures and window treatments. 

A genuine, lifelong passion for building

E.L. Shimp Buiders is more than a general construction company—it is the fulfillment of owner Eric Shimp's childhood dream. Eric's passion for construction began in the 1970's while working for his grandfather and two uncles, all of which excelled individually as custom home builders. That same unbridled enthusiasm and love of building infuses each and every one of his custom homes, additions and remodels. 

"I have wanted to be a contractor for as long as I can remember," Eric says. "I feel very fortunate to make a living doing what I love, and when you do what you love, it's not like work at all". After each project, the client’s ecstatic expression and subsequent referrals say more to me than a thousand words.
