What They Say

As someone that works in the trades, I work with many contractors. Dean Mazzei is always a pleasure to work with. He exudes a level of knowledge and expertise that inspires trust. From the beginning of the project all the way through, it is always a pleasant experience. I certainly appreciate his calm demeanor as this field can be quite stressful at times. Highly recommend hiring Mazzei Construction for your next project!

If you want a contractor who will respond to you quickly, who is personable, reliable, a man whom you can trust to be honest and do quality work for a fair price, then I strongly suggest giving Dean a call, because he is all of those things. He has now completed multiple projects on our home and has done a top notch job on all of them. As others have mentioned, his subcontractors have also been most excellent. I truly feel fortunate that we found out about him and gave him a call. I can without reservation recommend you do the same.

We recently acquired an electric vehicle and needed to install a ClipperCreek charging station in our home. ClipperCreek has a list of recommended installers, and Dean Mazzei Construction came as a top hit around Santa Cruz area.

We initiated contact with Dean via email and he was incredibly quick to reply, even on a weekend! He kindly offered to visit us to better understand and customize the installation. We explained to Dean our wishes for routing the cables, and how we were hoping the final setup would look like in our garage. He took measures and suggested some changes to improve the appearance of the setup.

He was very flexible with possible installation dates and provided a great quote for the service, detailing every single item and labor. He arrived at the date and time agreed and within 3 hours had completed the installation that exceeded our expectations.

It was comforting to see this effort, vs. other contractors that just asked us for photos and did an estimate over the phone. The personalized service, customization and timeliness are reasons why we will keep Dean as a first option for any work that our home needs going forward.

Thank you Dean!

Dean was recommended to me by San Lorenzo Doors and I couldn’t be happier with his work. My house was built in the 40’s but Dean was able to overcome its many flaws with patience, calmness, creativity and skill. I watched throughout because I couldn’t get over, and was not used to, his ability and positivity. The job he did is perfect. So lucky to have been given his name. I would enthusiastically recommend him and would definitely rehire.

We worked with Dean a couple of years ago when remodeling a bathroom. He did a great job and worked within our budget. We we were ready to tackle the kitchen recently, we knew just who to call. Dean has been so helpful in working with us on the design, exploring options for materials and generally understanding the style we are going for on this project. We are so glad to have Dean on our team!

A good friend recommended Dean to do an extensive electrical hook up for our new hot tub. When I called Dean, he was super nice over the phone, willing to work with my schedule, and was eager to help! I’ve had a lot of guys work on our house & Dean, by far was the most reliable and efficient! It was like a breath of fresh air. He was in and out within one day for the job, he worked quickly, and was extremely fair in what he charged for the job. I’m really happy with what he did and I highly recommend him for any job you need done at your house! I’m certainly going to keep his number in my phone for future jobs as well! Thanks Dean!

I had Mazzei Construction come out and give me an estimate on a remodel of my original 1973 bathroom. From the bid process to the completion of the project Dean was always available to discuss any questions or concerns that I had. Dean and his subs replaced the tub with a beautiful walk-in shower. The tile work by Eric came out beautiful. Dean and his subs were very professional and would always be on time or call if they were going to be late. I am very happy with my new bathroom. I would highly recommend calling Dean for any renovation needs and I look forward to working with him again in the future.

We got Dean’s name on suggestion from Next Door Depot Hill when we were looking for someone to do a complete and rather complicated bathroom renovation. Dean and his crew worked so well together and it showed in the end result. As others have said, he was always timely in responding to our many questions. We couldn’t be happier with the results and we would not hesitate to recommend Dean and we won’t hesitate to call Dean when we have renovation needs in the future.

We found Dean on the Santa Cruz Construction Guild, and we could not have been happier with our experience. Dean remodeled our front bath and did some other smaller projects this last year. I can say that he is honest, hardworking and has a lot of integrity for the quality of his work as well as the relationships he forms with clients. Dean was always timely in responding to our questions, calls or emails. He is a very easy going guy, and we look forward to working with him again in the future.

Good things come in mellow packages! Dean just finished spending the better part of a few months at our house, he did a complete remodel of our 1950’s dated kitchen and turned it into a unique and custom place to not only cook but just hang out. As things tend to happen when you find great work our remodel spilled over into the dinning room, the hall, living room and front door. We have had other contractors in the past but Dean went above the bar. He can not only do the general contractor work but he is a true craftsman and helped us plan, design, pick out colors etc to make our house a one off custom. He uses only quality supplies and builds things to last. I have, and will continue to use Dean Mazzei Construction in the future. I would most definitely recommend Dean to anyone who needs help in making their house a home. Todd Earhart S.C.

We had our master bathroom remodeled by Dean. We made the right choice. His workmanship and attention to detail was noticed right from the start. He did a beautiful job in helping us through the process and had several great ideas for our new shower. He kept us informed during the job and the end result is a new bathroom that looks awesome. We would highly recommend Dean to anyone who wants a quality job.

Thanks again Dean, we look forward to doing our other bathroom soon.

Recently my wife and I decided we wanted to do a full kitchen remodel in our new home. After having Dean do a few things hear any there in our home and seeing the quality of work he does first hand, he was a clear first choice for the job. Now, we are almost completed with the remodel and the difference is insane. The remodel involved tearing out EVERYTHING in the kitchen down to walls only. New tile floors, cabinets, appliances, under mount sink, quartz countertops, LED lighting, etc. We went from a worn out kitchen built in the 60’s to a totally modern and beautiful new kitchen. What a difference! Dean does exceptional work and he has a great eye for custom touches on all of his projects. I HIGHLY recommend Dean to anyone looking to do any type of repair/upgrade on their home. He is the real deal.

Dean has performed several different remodeling projects for us, ranging from lighting, to a sliding glass door, to our favorite, the rebuilding of our 40 plus year old deck. Dean used his unique combination of skills, including creativity, and use of unusual materials, and techniques, to build our beautiful deck, which is perfect for taking advantage of our great view. Not only is it aesthetically beautiful, it has increased the value of our home. Dean completed our projects promptly, professionally & on budjet as promised. Dean’s passion for his profession shows in his completed projects, & is much appreciated. Thank you Dean.

Dean is easy to work with, and gets things done! He keeps projects on time, and is absolutely great at finding quick and thoughtful solutions for any questions that arise during the construction process. Dean is also very good at providing homeowners with cost effective, quality options for keeping projects within their budgets. Hard working and reliable, I am happy to recommend him for your building needs.

Dean recently updated my kitchen and I absolutely love it! He listened to everything I wanted to do, and then made recommendations based on his expertise. His help and guidance helped me tremendously since I was a little overwhelmed with decisions! He advised me where to go, how much to spend, and where to save money. He completed the entire project in less that a week, and came in under budget for me too! Dean does outstanding work, and is a hard-working, honest, all-around great guy!

I recently got a referral to Dean from a friend and I am so happy I did. Dean is extremely skilled and easy to work with. He modified our old 40+ year old cabinets to fit a new oven. He also installed a new gas cook top for us to replace our old electric one. Dean was very helpful and reliable. Being a new home owner, we have dealt with many other contractors that take weeks to get anything done and are just a pain to deal with, Dean is not one of those guys. He’s been integral to our kitchen renovations, and hopefully the rest of the house as well. He’s been great at pointing us in the right direction, and understanding what we like. I would highly recommend Dean to anyone and will be using his services again for sure.

Dean Mazzei just completed a job for my mother. He did fantastic work and is also very personable. We don’t live in the area and wish we had somebody so reliable. But I feel good knowing my mother has somebody she can call. He has our full recommendation.

Hey everyone. I have worked with Dean on two significant projects over the past few years and I want everyone to know how great my experience has been. I work and have a busy life with my kid so I have a lot of requirements. Dean has always been there when he said he would be there, he works solid days and always cleans up when he leaves for the day (this was particularly important for me and my little 3 year old). The best part is that the work is top notch – His craftsmanship and dedication to quality is obvious. Also, I was able to make better decisions about my remodel because of Dean’s experience and knowledge of the available options for me. oh …. best of all. He was UNDER BUDGET! Does that ever happen? Thanks Dean!!

I have known Dean for several years and trust him and his work. Dean has done several projects for me, both large and small, and I can always count on him to do an excellent job. As a senior with little building knowledge it is important to me to have a contractor that I can trust and count on to do the job right, in a timely manner and within budget. I have recommended Dean to friends and they also are very happy with his work. Dean does a great job at a fair price.

Dean Mazzei is a reliable and skilled contractor. He is easy to work with, hard-working, and charges reasonable rates. He has done several jobs for me, including plumbing an outdoor shower and remodeling part of a house. I would use him again in an instant, and recommend him to anyone.
