“Rob and Watkins builders have done a few jobs for my clients when they needed to get their house ready for sale. They were all happy with the job quality and professional manners of the team. They also built a deck for our house, which we love. They always do a great job. I won’t hesitate to recommend them. “

– Kate Almassi, Santa Rosa

“Rob is a General Contractor so he is capable of doing almost anything. He has helped me with electrical, plumbing, construction issues in many of the properties I have managed as a Realtor. He is very responsive unlike many other Contractors, and works well within a tight budget. I would highly recommend him for any home improvements small or large…!”

– Christopher A. Smith, Santa Rosa, Ca.

I hired Rob and his crew to do a bathroom repair to remove dry rot and retile the shower. They did an excellent job. They were very clean, neat and reliable. Very easy to talk to and kept me informed during the entire project, even sending email pictures to keep me updated on the progress. I would recommend them for any home improvement project.

I was referred to Rob by my Realtor who told me that Rob Watkins does quality work at competitive prices.
I brought Rob in to build a Redwood deck and after seeing the results I have already hired him to do two more jobs. His crew is friendly and very capable. They get things done in a timely manner and they clean up after themselves so you’d hardly know they were there.

If you are looking for a licensed contractor who is committed to customer satisfaction and who does quality work for a very fair price, I suggest you give Rob a call and see for yourself.

I recommend Rob and Watkins Builders, Inc. with no reservations.

Where do I begin….I am managing Gaslight Apartments as Alliance Property Management took over in February of 2014. What a project. You name it and it has needed to be done or on a list of “to do’s” for the future…we have a 4 year deferred maintenance plan for this place. Rob was referred to me by a trusted friend that has been using his services for years.
His company has been providing many services for us. The following is a list of services that he has provided here at Gaslight Apartments…this complex has 138 units and is 42 years old…..need less to say, we have our work cut out for us.

  1. Window Replacement
  2. Dry Rot/Siding Repair
  3. Debris Removal
  4. Concrete
  5. Fencing
  6. Electrical
  7. Cleaning of Gutters
  8. Emergency repairs–he has saved us many times…when I have an emergency, I call him first. ex: I recently had a tenant run into the side of the carport destroying the size wall…I had to call the insurance company, etc….he was at the complex the very next day—on a Sunday– (as I called him on a Saturday)….checking the damages etc….I received the estimate within a couple days….which has made dealing with the insurance company easier.
I cannot say enough about Watkins Builders. The words that come to mind are honesty, trustworthy, integrity, dependable, professional, friendly and easy to work with. These qualities are a rare find…he has made my job easier as I know I can count on him and trust his judgement.

I cannot say enough about him…..he’s our right hand man here at Gaslight Apartments….I am thankful we found Watkins Builders.

"Great service. Received a recommendation for Watkins by Michele of Royal Service Cleaning who works with them often. We needed our ceiling fans re-attached before moving in after they were removed (quite forcibly) by contractors during our popcorn ceiling removal. After trying to re-attach them ourselves and finding parts/screws missing, Rob and Bill re-installed the fans for a great price. They also came back after we moved in to make on the fans more secure with extra screws since it had been rocking back and forth when turned on--and they didn't charge for stopping by to finish the job"

We hired Rob to do a complete remodel of our house in Sebastopol. We were leery of any contractor, really and spent a good deal of time refining the plans and piecing together a budget. The project is nearly complete and Watkins has done everything we could have asked of them. Not just Rob but the entire cast has been terrific to work with. Rob hires good people who know their stuff and then lets them work with an appropriate amount of supervision. A couple of smallish things went wrong and they were attended to quickly and efficiently. Rob listens. He is patient. (We are very picky) And, he cares about our satisfaction. We commend him for his efforts and the results.
