From Our Clients & Colleagues:
Kevin Moon and his crew are the best!  What a relief to have found a contractor who communicates clearly, has an extreme attention for detail, an artistic eye, great design ideas and follows through with all the little details that sometimes can get forgotten.  
Gabriel, his foreman for our job was fantastic.  The entire crew was extremely professional and did very high quality work.  Also, they left the job site in a clean condition at the end of every day and were extremely respectful of our needs. 
We just had Kevin and his crew at our house for a remodel of our downstairs (family room, office, and laundry room) and it has been a real pleasure working with them. 
They have also been extremely flexible, as we continually added scope to the job.  I would highly recommend Kevin and his crew for any remodeling project.

As an interior designer, I've worked with quite a few general contractors.  Kevin is hands-down one of the best. My clients love him and so do I! He is conscientious about the design, schedule and budget. If he's working on my project, I have nothing to worry about. Thank you, Kevin!!

Creativity, honesty, integrity and the highest quality work and work ethic. Kevin and his team were craftsmen, well informed and always on time. We did a remodel of half our home (including kitchen) and they finished on time, with no hitches. They went the extra mile when something needed to be ordered and their contract was not an estimate ... it was an exact contract so there were no surprises as to cost. Dealing with Kevin and his team was extremely easy. And they left the house clean at the end of each day. Kevin is very knowledgeable about sources for things like cabinets and counters and was spot on when it came to advice. We could not have been happier. The best part is when friends come to visit and go on and on about the work and the workmanship. A friend who had just paid to remodel her kitchen actually cried when she saw the difference in quality and how economical it was. Crescent is very reasonable when it comes to cost. We couldn't give them a better recommend unless they allowed 10 stars!

It has been incredibly difficult to find an honest, open, reliable contracting firm that is willing to come into the city of San Francisco and do work. In other words, a firm with integrity.
While attempting to work with contractors to remodel my condo in SoMA, I met with a number of firms and people, and even attempted to work with a few, whom I found sadly lacking in one or more of the criteria I listed above. More than anything else I wanted to find a contractor who could provide a reasonable estimate, show up on time and as scheduled, provide reasonable work orders when changes must be made, and not disappear before the job is done.
Crescent Builders has been all of that and more. Everyone I have worked with at Crescent, from Kevin who founded the company, to every person I have had contact with in the office and on-site has been professional, punctual, extremely reasonable, and in general just an absolute pleasure to work with. I find myself wanting to throw more work their way even without competing bids simply because the experience has been so positive for me.
I can't say enough good things about Crescent. I would without any hesitation recommend you contact them for a consultation about your project and a bid. Even if they can't handle the job or think it would be better for you to work with another company, they will be open about it and why. It's sad that this seems to be so hard to find in the city, but I'm happy I did finally find a company I can say this about.

I had wonderful experiences working with Kevin Moon and his team at Crescent Builders several times as a flooring contractor.  It is obvious from the outset that Crescent operates more smoothly than most firms, more like your time is critical to them.  It is not so much the doing what they say they are going to do, it is asking questions beforehand so the project managers can be proactive instead of tilting at windmills.  Oh sure, there is other talent in Marin, and it is easy enough with a magnetic general contractor sign and a pickup truck to put your shingle out there, but Crescent Builders manages the details and customer quirks with ease.  If you want a clean project and piece of mind, call Crescent Builders!

Crescent Builders, owned by Kevin and Lindsay Moon did a large scale remodel to the front of my house. I was incredibly impressed by them. The work was done to a high quality standard. Kevin's team were clearly very knowledgeable and totally reliable.
I have been in the situation before of being unable to track down the project manager when needed to, an infuriating process. Kevin's team in contrast were always extremely accessible and responsive. In addition to Kevin, Lindsay his wife was very helpful and knowledgeable and easy to get hold of. David, their project manager was fantastic too, ensuring that everything ran smoothly. For example, once when in a lighting store I needed very specific information relating to the lights. Within five minutes I had the exact information I needed. Gabriel their foreman was the best I have ever worked with.
Crescent's bid was extremely competitive. I have also been many times in the situation of once a contractor starts working on my house, they then suddenly "find" extra problems which really "need" fixing. This never happened with Crescent. I really felt I could trust them.
I would totally recommend Crescent and will use them again in the future.

Crescent did an excellent job of reconfiguring our 30 year-old kitchen cabinetry and windows to accommodate installation of new cookware appliances.  Their bid was reasonable, and their crew, under the foremanship of Gabriel, was of "old world craftsmanship" quality.  The finishing paint job was perfection.  I highly recommend Crescent Builders.

I hired Crescent on two projects with very tight timelines due to personal circumstances. Kevin and his crew did an excellent job. We did work in our bathroom and kitchen for a remodel. The work involved new countertops, making a few cabinets, light electric, appliance/sink install and plumbing -- all done professionally by his crew. Also some cabinet surgery had to be done to work in appliances and his foreman did a solid job. His crew was very clean, always protected my floors and walls, respectful, and offered to work around our baby's nap schedule.  I personally chose all the new items myself for install, but Kevin did offer up a few design suggestions that I ended up going with.
I found his bids competitive and he turned around estimates relatively quickly to help me plan. I do find it helpful to get a few bids for remodels, but in the end, it isn't always just about price. Some contractors are better at certain tasks then others, you be the judge when meeting with them. You can tell a lot from a contractor on small things like attention to detail, communication skills, cleanliness, adherence to a timeline, organization of work, or even being told a handyman would be more cost effective for certain tasks -- Kevin stood out on a lot of regards. Things happen on all remodels, for example our timeline was pushed out a bit more than anticipated due to a sub-contractor dragging, but what matters is how the contractor deals with it. In balance I was very happy with both jobs and would hire Kevin again.

We recently used Crescent Builders to do a series of small renovation projects at our home in Kentfield. Kevin and his team did an excellent job, were on time, on budget, very courteous and their attention to detail was up to our high standards. We will use them again for upcoming project needs!

I have worked with many and a wide diversity of contractors over the last few years and Kevin is head and shoulders above the rest for three reasons:
1. Kevin has integrity and is reliable.  He arrives when he says he will and does what he says he will.  100% of the time.  If he makes a mistake (rarely) he takes responsibility for it.  If he doesn't know something, he'll admit it and find the answer.
2. Kevin can communicate well.  He explains what he's going to do and we discuss every project in advance so we both know what to expect and there are as few surprises as possible.
3. Kevin and his crew are trustworthy.  I never have any reservations about giving Kevin and his crew my key.  I know they will put everything back as they found it and won't leave a mess.
I can't recommend Crescent Builders any more highly!

We hired Kevin to remodel our bathroom and replace some wooden floors after our house flooded this summer.  After interviewing a few contractors we quickly settled on Kevin and I am so happy we did.
Kevin and his crew were organized, efficient, helpful with design ideas and they are just so friendly.  Usually when your house is all torn up it is depressing but they made the whole process go so smoothly. They did what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it and kept our house as tidy as they could as they did the work.
Our new bathroom looks amazing.  We look forward to working with them again on other projects.

Can I give out 6 stars? I hired Kevin to do medium size remodeling in my house, which included modifying walls, closing new space, and restructure several rooms.
Kevin and his team were able to complete all the work within the time frame I wanted and within my budget. While other contractors pointed out the complexity in the changes I wanted to make, Kevin made everything seem so easy!
The modifications to the house were done while I was at work, and Kevin always made sure I have a clean (and exciting) place to come back to. Kevin work was very detailed, and all changes were done better than I imagined possible.
I would definitely use Kevin again for any further updates in my place, and I am happy to send pictures and personally recommend him to anyone reading my review.

Contractor Kevin Moon and his team remodeled three full baths and put in my new Ikea kitchen in record speed and on budget. Our Fairfax house is an antique with plumbing and wiring to match.   When there we a few hiccups (old wiring etc) that needed to be ironed out, Kevin provided several solutions and costs to choose from along with his recommendations with regard to safety, cosmetics etc.  I can't say enough about his communication and professionalism.  It seems no job is too big or too small for Kevin and his team.  The house looks fantastic!  Thank you Kevin!!

Crescent Builders was great to work with. Even though it was a small project, Kevin showed exquisite attention to detail and was extremely thorough. Both he and Lindsay were very responsive and always kept me in the loop. Highly recommend them.

If you are looking for someone to do excellent work on your home with attention to detail and craftsmanship, I highly recommend you call Kevin.  You will not be disappointed.  Plus, he's the kind of person you'll feel comfortable letting into your home while you are at work.   He's well educated, very creative and a great communicator. 
Kevin has remodeled 2 of my kitchens (2 different homes), 4 bathrooms, built a huge multimedia center/bookcase, crown molded rooms, and even made a gorgeous tiled patio table for me. I highly recommend him.

Kevin remodeled my townhouse & it came out PERFECT!  He is a true gentleman, and an honor to work with!  I highly recommend Kevin for your job!

Kevin just completed remodeling my kitchen and he turned my outdated '70's look into a new and magnificent place to cook! I can always trust Kevin to make great design suggestions that make sense and don't cost any money. He always keeps me informed and discusses any issues or changes that always come up during construction projects.
Kevin also remodeled my two bathrooms a few years ago and they came out beautiful. He does quality work and it shows that he really cares about his customers.
I highly recommend Kevin Moon and Crescent Builders. If you hire him, you will not be disappointed.

We used Kevin to fix a leak coming in from a rooftop deck railing. Although we located the origin, Kevin suggested a solution that has thus far held up against torrential rain. Downstairs, he patched the ceiling and it looks great. Price was right. But more than that, he listened to us and is personable. He was on time and thorough. He ranks as the go-to guy for nuts and bolts construction needs.

Kevin, Everything looks fantastic! You turned a set of IKEA cabinets into a custom built-in.  Lis loves her chandelier as well - she had trouble packing for our weekend away and I kept catching her staring at the ceiling of the closet whispering "it's so perfect!" Thanks again for your support!

Kevin is so good at fixing things both big and small.  Kevin has helped me with a few projects around my apartment and even though my projects have been little (like installing a new kitchen faucet, or helping with some plumbing issues) Kevin has approached my requests with professionalism, sometimes humor, and always a great attitude.  Kevin has great ideas, is flexible to demanding clients such as myself and has been a pleasure to have in my home for my various projects.
I highly recommend Kevin and Crescent Builders.  You won't be disappointed!

Kevin Moon and his staff did a marvelous job on my kitchen remodel while my tenant lived there.  The work was done well and in a timely manner so as not to inconvenience the tenant any more than necessary.  Kevin even helped to set up a "mock" kitchen for the duration.  The kitchen remodel which included demo of cabinets, countertops,and flooring followed by installation of all the above and back splash was completed in one month's time.  Thank you Kevin for a job well done in a timely manner.

I have used Kevin and Crescent Builders for a few projects. The first was an easy bathroom fix, but the other one was a much more complicated range hood installation. I wanted him to install the range hood higher than what the specs recommended. He was honest and said that he had never done that before but was confident that they would be able to do it. When I returned home and saw their work, I was extremely pleased - the range hood was installed exactly how I wanted it, and now our kitchen and dining room are competely open.

Kevin, Thanks for the prompt, well-defined work/project effort. I appreciated the ‘out of scope’ final trim work too.

Lindsay – I appreciate how much you and Kevin have communicated with us about status and timing.  Many people don’t and I really appreciate how you guys do.

I had a small but out-of-the-ordinary project. Unlike most contractors or handymen, Kevin is creative, responsive, and email-savvy. I emailed him some digital photos of my space, he came up with a solid cost-effective solution, and brought all the right materials and tools so he could finish the job in a single visit. And he stands behind his work. Thanks!

I worked with Kevin and Lindsay to remodel my yoga studio. Kevin helped me make important decisions AND stayed within my budget. He followed through on everything we discussed and kept me in the loop on progress and any glitches that arose during the remodel.
Lindsay was timely in responding to my emails and giving me suggestions for colors and other details.
I loved working with Crescent because I didn't know exactly what I wanted from the beginning and Kevin really helped to hear my vision and give appropriate suggestions. The studio looks amazing and we receive complements every single day on what a great job we've done. Thanks Kevin and Lindsay!

I highly recommend Crescent Builders! We hired Kevin to help us remodel our laundry room and he did an excellent job. He was very patient and attentive to our needs and had great ideas to resolve some of the issues we encountered. Most importantly, he is very honest and hard-working.
Also, he really helped us keep the project within our budget and actually saved us money by trying to find cheaper alternatives through his connections in the industry. Thanks Kevin!

We have used Kevin's services more than 4 times over the last 6 years for a kitchen, 2 bathrooms and some other smaller projects. He started by completely remodeling our kitchen. Living in a house during a kitchen remodel is a stressful situation but Kevin made it easy. His attention to detail, commitment to sticking to time tables and pleasant personality made a stressful situation manageable.
Kevin kept us updated with regular emails about his progress for the day and next steps. He was also very respectful of our home and always kept the construction area cleaned up at the end of the day.  Overall, we completely trusted his ability as a contractor and his personal character.
One thing in particular that I appreciated about Kevin was that he was a great sounding board for the many, many decisions (specifically design decisions) you have to make for any remodeling project. I was not always clear on what I wanted but Kevin was always available to talk me through the options, give me the pros and cons and offer his opinion, if asked.
Over the years we have recommended him to several of our friends who have used him and all ended up happy with his work. I would have no qualms about recommending him for any size job.

Kevin did several improvements to my new home.  I was very pleased with the work and professionalism.  He gave detailed quotes and kept within his estimates.  Kevin is very good in working with you.  For example, I had a shower stall that I wanted to upgrade, and completely replacing it was too expensive, but Kevin figured out that redoing the shower pan and fixing up the tiling made the shower stall quite nice at reasonable cost.  He also installed a vent fan to the roof in each bathroom, which has very quiet fans that suck out the steam very nicely.
Kevin can do all jobs himself, e.g., he tiled one bathroom, installed the bathroom fans, new sink and cabinet, but has other helpers.  One room I had heated tiles installed by a subcontractor of Kevin and the tiling pattern suggested and done by the subcontractor is very nice. 
I also had the entrance to my home screened in and he built a very nice screen paneled structure with screen door.
Kevin is very neat and meticulous about his work. 
Kevin was recommended to me by a colleague at work who has used him for many years for home remodeling and improvement. I highly recommend him.
