Unity Remodeling

23326 Victory Blvd., Woodland Hills, CA 91367

Established in 2000, Unity Remodeling has extensive expertise in kitchen remodeling, bathroom remodeling, and room additions. At the age of 16, Shay Alon, the owner, learned how to install flooring and build kitchen cabinets from scratch. In the years since he has expanded his focus to include virtually every aspect of construction including the very latest technologies and techniques. Shay’s team of bonded workers have mastered exterior and interior painting, removing interior walls, and building new islands with quartz countertops.

This is reflected in the kitchen and bathrooms the company remodeled where the team installed new flooring, lighting, painted the interior and exterior. They also provided plumbing and complete rewiring in a number of projects.

The Unity team’s critical thinking and problem-solving skills stood out when it assisted a client who had a backyard that tends to flood during heavy rains, and the water flows down onto the patio. On the spot, Shay designed a French drain system: a trench drain collects the water before it reaches the patio. It is routed to a network of four French drains, which would be lined with alternating layers of pebbles and sand to act as reservoirs for flood overflow.

A custom glass elevator installation and home remodel converted a 1950’s Laguna Beach, California house into a light and bright piece of art featured in Orange County’s Home magazine.

Accustomed to renovating old homes, Bob handles midcourse corrections with transparency. He worked on a 1930 Spanish Colonial Revival home where he encountered a complication with asbestos abatement.
