Here is what a few have said about Tony and Calcoast Construction:
Restoration with Respect
"Our house was designed for us by Frank Gehry. lt has been published in magazines across the world and we are often visited by university sponsored tours and assorted groups of Gehry fans. Consequently, my wife and I have always felt an obligation to retain a high level of maintenance. However, the corrosive effects of salt air during 25 years on the Venice oceanfront had taken it's toll. We needed to do an extensive remodel. Windows and doors had to be replaced. Two bathrooms had to be totally remodeled. It was important that we find a contractor who fit three criteria. 1) He must be respectful and appreciative of Gehry's design. 2) The quality of his craftsmanship must be high. 3) He must have a pleasant personality since we were going to live in the house while under construction. 4. and last and most important, since we are not wealthy, his fees had to be reasonable. We found that man in Tony Cosko. Unlike any other contractor l've known, he actually showed up when he said he would. The quality of his and his sub contractors was very good and he is a pleasant respectful person who was a pleasure to have in our home. There were no unnecessary messes. His crew cleaned up every night when they were finished and anybody who has had to live in a construction site knows how important that is. Finally, here is the most extraordinary thing about Tony Cosko. He brought in the job significantly under budget. Yes, it was almost unbelievable in this day and age but we actually saved money. I recommend him highly."
There When You Need Him
"It is without hesitation that I wholeheartedly recommend Tony Cosko. Tony is very talented and creative in coming up with solutions for project which at first seem quite challenging. He is always on time and comes in on budget. Tony and his crew are a joy to be around. My 2-year old daughter frequently wondered where Tony went after our job was complete. My wife and I always appreciate how Tony made himself available if we had questions or issues to discuss, regardless of whether it was in the evenings or on a weekend. We would use him again without thinking twice."

"Tony Cosko is the best general contractor I have ever worked with. He has an incredible work ethic and by far the most important for me as a designer, is his attention to detail. A project takes 100% of your efforts and more. With Tony, the last 10% of the job, when the finishing touches are crucial and everyone is tired he is right there making it perfect! This is a rare gift, someone that cares as much as I do. My clients think he is the greatest, because he is present and hands-on, provides professional subs, and responds immediately to the needs of the project. He stays on calendar and budget and is accountable. I hope he is available for all of my projects."
"lf it's complicated and challenging and I want perfection at a very competitive price, Tony is my go-to guy. His work is impeccable, his experience and knowledge are extensive and very reassuring."
"I am a 20 year veteran in the real estate industry and have a pretty discriminating eye for quality. I first hired Tony to build an outdoor room for me 5 years ago. Since then I had Tony and his team do an extensive remodel to my Pacific Palisades home including blowing out ceilings, remodeling a bathroom, completely remodeling our kitchen, and adding an office. He managed the project professionally and cleanly, and the workmanship again was great. I would definitely recommend him to others."
"Tony Cosko has completed various projects on our house over the past 10 years ranging from building a fenced-in enclosure for garbage cans to rebuilding our dining room because of a fungus incursion. Tony is always professional and pleasant to work with. He brings both an understanding of building and the ability to translate our expectations into something concrete. He is the first person we call when something needs to be built or repaired. When our dining room had become damaged because of an underground fungus, Tony rebuilt and increased the size of the foundation without destroying the room. He replaced the damaged windows and he sealed the foundation with an impervious, rubber membrane to prevent any future fungus incursion. Tony installed vents under the house to increase air flow and rebuilt the redwood deck. Although water had not created the problem, Tony realized the roof drainage could create problems in the future and built a system that would take all the roof drainage underground and to the street. We've had no further problems since this was done five years ago and sleep nights not worrying about it. We highly recommend Tony Cosko to friends to address any home building needs."
