EB Knight Construction Santa Barbara CA


If, when choosing your contractor, you have integrity, honesty, professionalism, and skill on you list of required qualities, then Eric is your guy. You would witness his abilities firsthand as they extend from your project’s conception through its completion; from drawings and permits to that glorious day the inspector signs off on your project. During construction, he brings on board only the best subcontractors and craftsman in town. And, more importantly, he knows which ones to avoid. He is pragmatic, often fixing issues before they become expensive and time-consuming problems. He has an aesthetic yet practical eye. His record-keeping is impeccable. And most importantly, he is trustworthy.

Eric came highly recommended by friends as well as several families in the neighborhood who had already completed similar additions to their homes. He was a pleasure to work with and very organized in his scheduling and billing. We had several concerns during the project such as security and timing due to our first child due five months from the start date! We especially appreciated Eric’s logical billing. The project was completed on time with great results.

We are pleased to say that our construction project went better than we could have dreamed of and we would not hesitate recommending the services of Eric Knight. He was a pleasure to work with and, the ultimate testimonial, we are extremely pleased with the results of our project. Eric worked closely with us to ensure that our idea of how we wanted the house to look in the end became a reality. Also, the project was completed on time and within the budget.

Eric Knight was the General Contractor on the recent remodel of our home. Through the entire job he and his crew were reliable and their workmanship was excellent. They were on the job when they said they would be, came in under or on budget, and finished within the estimated time-frame. Though we were living in the house at the time, he and his crew did their best to work around our family and were not an intrusion in any way.

We have been involved in a number of prior construction projects with other contractors, and I know from experience the pitfalls that can occur with an unscrupulous or inefficient contractor. I can say from experience that Eric and his crew are excellent to work with, and I whole-heartedly recommend their work.

We had Eric Knight build a custom second story addition above our Mesa area home. We found Eric to be extremely east to work with, and very competent in handling every aspect of the job. The finished addition is well executed in every detail and we are very, very happy with the results.

Eric dealt with us in a professional, honest manner and has a good rapport with his subcontractors and city officials. We highly recommend him as a general contractor.

I had the privilege of meeting Eric Knight a couple years ago when I was the project supervisor for a historic preservation project in which he was the contractor. Eric ran a very smooth job; working had to meet the schedule while taking care not to disrupt the historic fabric.

I was pleased and impressed by his effort to remain in constant communication so that the architect, engineer, and I were aware of any problems or design changes that needed to be made.

I hope that I will have the opportunity to work again with Eric in the future.

Eric Knight was the on-site supervisor of the seismic retrofit of and other work at the Casa de la Guerra, a 5,000 sq. ft. 1820’s adobe. Mr. Knight was an excellent person to work with. Most important, the Casa project came in on time and within budget. The quality of his work and the timeliness with which he responded to my request were exemplary.
