A home is something a true homeowner cherishes. The process of designing and building your own cements your relationship to your home. And what happens when a home no longer makes its owners happy? Before giving up completely on a home, why not see what you can do with a remodel?

Below is a list of the best general contractors operating in Walnut; these California general contractors are well-versed in the complexities of renovation. These builders were chosen for their backgrounds, their experience, and their ability to rejuvenate a home’s character with a simple addition or remodel.
