We Are The “Good Home” Contractor!
Comfort and trust are the two most important feelings any Contractor must instill in their owners. After initial introductions, through estimating and award, to design and permitting – who are you going to then give the keys to your house to? Home remodeling isn’t done in China – it’s done in your kitchen, your bathrooms – your home. Who do you want in your home? Typically that’s not the first question you ask yourself when you start your search for a contractor. But it’s the question we ask ourselves. We treat your home, your family, and your pets as if our own, which is why we ask ourselves “Who do our clients want in their homes?” “What kind of quality would we be happy with?” When you select Beacon Bay we don’t take it for granted. We work hard for you, we deliver quality construction, and we will keep you informed through-out the process.
How We Started.
Beacon Bay Construction was founded by Eric Johannessen. Eric is a 3rd generation contractor. He grew up working with his father in home construction in upstate New York; he has a Master’s in Architecture degree from Virginia Tech, has been licensed since 2000 in California and since 2004 in Florida, and has built multi-million dollar commercial, hospitality, and residential projects across the US. Construction is in his blood and is one of his passions. He’s renovated every home he’s ever owned, and he can’t wait to help you build or renovate yours. Eric happily resides in Winter Park, FL with his wife Shannon and their four children.
Where Do We Service?
We service the greater Central Florida area. We have offices in Orlando, but we have a wide reach including but not limited to Orange, Seminole, Lake, Sumter, Polk, Osceola, Brevard, and Volusia counties. Give us a call; if we don’t service your area, we can help you find someone who does. Our goal is to be the General Contractor you turn to when you need someone you trust and can count on.
Are You Licensed & Insured?
We are! You would be surprised to learn, there are a lot of Contractors out there who are not, but claim they are, and we beg of any owner contemplating hiring a, “licensed & insured contractor” to verify their license on-line at www.myfloridalicense.com. If you sign a contract with an un-licensed contractor and give them a deposit, it is legally un-enforceable - they can disappear - and you have no recourse! The State of Florida has mandated significant criteria to protect homeowners by enforcing strict licensing standards. Do your research; we are at the top of that criteria as a Certified General Contractor (CGC1507250) which means we are the most qualified, the most tested, the most experienced, and the most capable to State standards.
Did you know the Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB) in Florida mandates that contractors include their license number in all advertising? Next time you see a pick-up truck with a, “Contractor” who says, “licensed and insured”, but no license number – run! Because you know what they do? They obtain a local business license from the County or City they live in, and say, “I’m licensed”! You could go down to the office, pay $75, and obtain a business license in about an hour. Don’t be fooled!
What Do We Do?
We can take on just about any project that you can throw our way. We take great pride in offering a comprehensive list of construction services. From building a new custom home, a new kitchen or bathroom, or even a new addition - we have architects, designers, subcontractors and all the vendors you need to build the project of your dreams. Just tell us what you want and leave the rest to us!
We do Additions.
Do you need more space? If so, let’s talk about an adding on to your home. From a sun room to a second or third floor we have worked on every type of addition project. Keep in mind that your existing home should flow into your addition as if it were always there. To do this you need someone with experience. We have that experience, we have done it for countless clients and we’ve done it to our own homes! We can help you from the planning stages all the way through the finished results of your addition.
Give us a call. We can walk you through the process and offer real solutions and amazing ideas. Let us help you and your family get that extra space you need.
We do Kitchens.
We love kitchens. Everyone always gathers in the kitchen and some of our favorite memories were in our grandparent’s kitchens and our own. If you’re looking to renovate your kitchen you’re in the right spot. We have renovated kitchens through-out Central Florida. We work with the best kitchen designers to conceptualize the best use of space for your kitchen. We know how to move walls, place islands and appliances in such a way that your new kitchen renovation will not only be beautiful, but will be practical and more functional for you and your family.
Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and one of the biggest factors in resale. Let’s get cooking and renovate it.
We do Bathrooms.
What type of bathroom do you dream of? From luxury master baths to functional pool baths, we’ve done it all. Give us a budget and we will get to work on the design that best fits your needs. A great bathroom design is important. Second only to the kitchen, the bathrooms in your home are what set your home apart and above. They are also a huge factor when it comes to the resale value of your home.
When you’re ready to renovate your bathroom, we’ll be ready too.
We do Dream Homes
Do you want to build a custom home? From a rustic Florida ranch to a modern mansion—whichever fits your style and budget—we are equipped to build it. From design to move-in, we can and will build the home of your dreams. With over fifty years of experience building and renovating homes, we have the vision and the people to implement the project of your dreams.
When you’re ready to start your project, know that we are looking forward to meeting and working with you.
What Don’t We Do?
Despite all of our talents, our licensing, and abilities, we too have to hire licensed and insured contractors for roofing, mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP), and pools. See the State of Florida considers these specialty trades, which require a lot of hands-on specific learning. We’ve all heard of an electrical apprentice, to journeyman, to master electrician - right? They too need to learn their craft, have years of experience, pass the State exam and carry a license number. Don’t let the concrete guy wire the bedroom addition no matter what they tell you they can do – okay?
