Paul Dashevsky, of GreatBuildz in California, takes time out to talk about how he connects homeowners with contractors, how to go about hiring a contractor and how to make the construction process smoother. The main focus of his visit is his advice about how to build an ADU- accessory dwelling unit. ADUs have been in the news lately as a way to gain additional living space on your property without adding to the house. This may be a solution for people (zoning permitting) who are looking for a home office, place for their parents or adult children to live nearby, or as an income generating unit.

About this week’s guest Paul Dashevsky, founder of GreatBuildz:

GreatBuildz was founded by a team of real estate and construction professionals who believe everyone deserves to find a great contractor, have a stress-free renovation, and enjoy their beautiful new space.

We match clients with only reputable contractors who passed our rigorous screening process and signed our Code of Conduct.

Over 50% of homeowners report having a negative experience with their contractor.

It’s no surprise people considering a remodel are often anxious and confused.

GreatBuildz provides clients personalized guidance and support, empowering them to renovate with confidence.
