Fantastic work on a tenant improvement for our escape room in Tustin. This was my first time starting a business, and everyone warned me about how rough the construction process would be, so I was braced for the worst. But… John was fantastic! Working with him and his crew was the best part of the process. He paid attention to details about what I asked for, helped me with value engineering, prepared a very detailed and competitive bid, was accommodating on contract terms and timelines, delivered early, and passed most inspections on the first shot. Were there change orders? Yes, but they were all reasonable, and John was great at communicating beforehand about anything big. Did everything go perfectly? Of course not, but any mistakes John took care of.

John and his crew are the best. We’ve worked with them on two bathrooms now and they make sure to put every effort to make it high quality and listen to every request we have. John personally comes to check in and chat with us to align on the upcoming plans for the renovation. He is also very clear on his invoices about what is spent on each item. Finally, his crew is so friendly as well and checks in at critical moments with me to make sure that the placement of fixtures are just the way I want them. Thank you for the hard, quick and efficient work and the care you provided to renovating our bathrooms! Special thanks to John, Levi, Esteban, Travis and Kyle!

I am thankful that I was able to connect with John Christopher Construction. My experience working with them was a positive one. After having negative experiences with other contractors in the past, I’m pleased to say I now have a reliable contractor that I can count on for any future repairs or remodels. I have a rental property in Irvine. The tenants recently vacated with little to no notice. When I inspected the property it was completely destroyed. I reached out to a few reputable contractors and wasfloored by the pricing and the limited scope of services provided. After another search I connected with John Christopher Construction. From start to finish I had a sense of confidence that not only was this team competent,but also looking out for my best interest. My point of contact was co-owner, John Frize and I am impressed with how professional and more importantlyhow responsive he was. The pricing was fair and the quality of work completely met my expectations. John and crew took my ruined and non-rentable property and restored it to a condition that is marketable. I’m also impressed with their commitment to getting the project done on time, and with limited change orders. Again, I am very please with my experience working with this company.

My husband and I contracted with John Christopher Construction to do a complete remodel of our kitchen. We were told in the beginning the project would take approximately 4 months to complete and they were true to their word! We worked primarily with Chris and found him to be professional, knowledgeable, honest and always responsive. They had their crews in and out of our home almost on a daily basis and they were all professional, polite and very good at their various trades. They always took care to avoiddamage to other areas of the house when bringing materials in and taking old materials out. They always cleaned up after themselves after a days work. We recommend John Christopher Construction for any of your construction needs, whether large or small. We will continue to contract with them in the future.

John Christopher Construction did a GREAT job for a very reasonable price in a timely manner on our recent home project. John Frize orchestrated the demo, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, painting, flooring and stucco. All of their “in house” craftsmen that worked on our home were punctual and had a sense of pride in their work – artists! Throughout the project John and his crew were always communicative, friendly and consummate professionals. Our family is grateful to have had them do their magic on our home!

Chris Manos and John Christopher Construction are a hidden gem. The top ADU contractors in southern California by far. They are constantly on site, on time, on where on budget. When do you get to put those together when talking about construction? They really care about their clients and it shows in the craftsmanship and supervision of our project. Chris and John do more than ADUs and can’t wait to hire them to help renovate our main house. Give Chris and John a call first, you won’t regret it.

After years of speaking about it, My husband and I finally settled to renovate our Garage into an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). We initially went with my husband’s “work friend,” who is cheap and fast. Still, after a week of working for us, I came down to the decision to let him go of the lack of communication and responsibility, so I proceeded onwards and took manners into my own hands. I looked online and settled on John Christopher Construction, as they had a satisfactory history. I told them I had a specific time frame to finish, and they surpassed it with flying colors! Also, Zachary was so accommodating and experienced in helping me pick out the perfect layout for my garage, and it came out better than I could think of. Based on The quality, With quickness and pleasant service, I would recommend them to anyone.

When our tenants left, the house was a complete disaster. John Frize assisted us in coming up with a whole interior house remodel at a reasonable cost. The cabinets were painted inside and out, new appliances including stove, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, washer, dryer, software system, and osmosis system were installed. New sinks, counter tops, faucets, medicine cabinets, ceiling fans, window coverings, flooring, and base boards were installed. John and his crew removed all the old appliances and other rubbish. As you can see from the pictures, the house turned out amazing! John and his crew were easy to work with and accommodated our short two week time frame to have all the work completed. We highly recommend John Christopher Construction, and we will use them again on other projects.

From start to finish, Contractor John Frize gave 100% to this project. Project proceeded without delays, even when there were issues that needed to be resolved. The project was completed on time. Carpenter, Robert, did an excellent job understanding my vision and helping to make sure everything was done to my satisfaction. John always answered calls and texts in a timely manner and always provided clear expectations and project costs. All trades did an excellent job, and took pride in their work. I would highly recommend this company for your next project.

John and his team did an incredible job for a client that I have down in Huntington Beach. Not knowing any contractors in the area, I found John Christopher Construction online due to their outstanding reviews and recommended them as I wanted to make sure my client was in good hands. Their service absolutely matched their reviews. They were able to get to my client within a day of inquiring on a time sensitive project and the homeowners were extremely happy with the work done on the drywall. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the area!

John Christopher Const gets a 10 out of 10! I interviewed eight construction companies for me kitchen, bathroom remodels and co-owner Chris Manos was by far the most professional and thorough. During the entire 3 month process he stayed in communication and if an issue came up he also offered solutions. Project was completed before the estimated timeline. Highly recommend!
Anne Quick

John Christopher Construction remodeled our master bathroom and kitchen. We were thrilled with the finished product. All of the subcontractors were professional and did an excellent job. Chris is incredibly knowledgeable, available and helpful. I highly recommend them for any home remodel and for their handyman services as well.

Highly recommend! I have hired John Christopher Construction for numerous ADU projects (by way of the modular home company I work for.) We have a regular and ongoing rotation of incoming work, that I’m happy to continue to contract them for. They offer fair pricing, they’re very transparent and very timely! Chris & John are extremely hands-on owners and their willingness to go above and beyond for my customers and the company I work for – is quite exceptional!

I had the pleasure of meeting Chris Manos at a contractor’s walk through on a 5,959 SF building in Irvine. From inception, Chris was by far the most professional and quick to respond to our requests and seemed genuinely interested in trying to work with us every step of the way. I then requested another proposal for an 11,270 SF space and experienced the same professional and personable attitude and demeanor. I highly recommend John Christopher Construction for your building and construction needs.

Managing properties in Orange County brings a bag of mixed experiences when it comes to quality and honesty. Chris maxes out with a 10/10 for both of those. I appreciate the fact that he’s upfront about his pricing. Quite literally, what you see is what you get. His work is top notch and he updates you and explains everything in a way that you can understand. I have already used him twice and both times, he’s been prompt, communicative, and effective.

I recently purchased a medical space in Orange. The entire thing needed to be gutted and rebuilt. I am so glad I picked Chris and John. They were quickly able to get on the job and finish it in a timely fashion. During the construction, we ran in to snags with my design and they had great ideas on how to make a space work well. Glad to see someone thinking outside the box. I’m thrilled with the end product and would gladly use them again.
