About Canyon Oak Construction

Kitchen & Bathroom Remodeling Experts in the San Gabriel Valley

We've been serving the San Gabriel Valley since 1992. Then and now, our reputation is built on craftsmanship, professionalism, and an unmatched commitment to customer service.

Since our beginning, the majority of our clients have come to us by referral - largely due to our track record in completing complex, highly detailed kitchens and bath projects. Although we now specialize in kitchen and bath remodeling, we'rre skilled in all areas of home remodeling, and repair.

Our Commitment to Green Construction

We're constantly finding ways to practice to 4 R’s of “Going Green”: Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle and Recover the Resource. For example, we often reinstall old cabinets from remodeled kitchens into garages for our clients, donate appliances to charities, recycle cardboard from shipped products, and we’ve recovered more space with every new project

Kitchens are often the heart of the home - where families and friends get together. Our goals of “Greening” a kitchen project include natural lighting, optimal ventilation layout, low-toxicity finishes, energy/water-efficient appliances, and surfaces that are durable, cleanable and, of course, aesthetically pleasing. While there is no material with zero impact on the environment, there are many eco-friendly products and materials available to our clients today.

Many of our manufacturers are producing these products, allowing our clients to be less reliant on existing harmful or toxic materials. For example, Showplace Wood Products has introduced the Lypus wood as an option for the environmentally conscious customer. Bamboo, or cork, are great material options for flooring, and stainless steel or concrete are now being used for countertops.

Who We Are

Steve's motto always has been “Commitment to Excellence” and always will be. Steve and his skilled crew of craftsmen never cut corners - always striving for perfection on any project. With any room, big or small, they've got the knowledge and talent to complete them all.

Past clients know we're honest and reliable. They run their jobs from conception to completion, giving the homeowner peace of mind that their job will be done right and on time.

Michelle Clemens Controller/Office Manager

"Starting a new project takes a lot of work, from the decision making to the ordering and receiving of new products. Our customer’s don’t need to worry about the ordering; confirming or receiving once they’ve signed up with us."

My goal is to have the products arrive prior to the install date, checked for any possible damage and make sure the items ordered are what we’ve received and delivered to the jobsite. After all, the client’s vision is our mission!"


Phil Miller of Monrovia, CA
My wife and I live in Monrovia, and in 2010 we hired Canyon Oak Construction to re-build our entire kitchen.

The project extended beyond merely tearing down an old kitchen and fabricating a new one. Additional challenges that had to be overcome included cracks in the cement floor, removal of a load-bearing wall with insertion of a new attic support beam, as well as designing and acquiring customized cabinetry that could be installed plumb upon walls that were not always straight or even 90 degrees perpendicular to the ground

As one might expect, there were a few minor snags during the 3-month project (for example, a window frame needed to be moved laterally a bit further than originally expected), but Steve Clemens and his crew overcame that problem with little difficulty. There was nothing out of the ordinary that could not be resolved with attention and dedication, which the Canyon Oak staff demonstrated consistently throughout

There are likely contractors out there who would say they could've done the job for less that what we paid, and that might well be true. But an important part of getting one's value is to deal with a company that is upfront and earnest, and Canyon Oak Construction delivered that for us. We consider the peace of mind we experienced to be a critical part of the purchase, and we recommend them!"

John & Elena Corcoran of Los Angeles, CA
Steve and his crew have always demonstrated the highest quality workmanship and integrity in all of the many projects Canyon Oak Construction has performed at our house. Some of the projects were unique and difficult, but were always completed in a stellar manner. Not only is the work excellent, but all of his crew are trustworthy and honest. I would highly recommend Canyon Oak Construction for any home improvement or remodeling project."

Susie Kater of South Pasadena, CA
"My new kitchen is gorgeous thanks to the design and Steve’s construction. To make the experience even better: Steve’s work is perfection, AND the job was done within budget and in less time than he originally estimated. I can’t wait until Steve can help me with my next project – a new dream bathroom!"
Leanne & Lance Baroldi of Temple City, CA
"Steve and his crew do meticulous work and had far exceeded our expectations on our new kitchen. We had worked with other contractors in the past and would never work with any other contractor. We highly recommend Canyon Oak Construction for any remodeling project."
Peter & Jeanie Price of Pasadena, CA
"We have been extremely happy with the work done by Steve and his crew -- complete remodeling of our kitchen and three baths, as well as some smaller projects. His prices are competitive; the workmanship is excellent; his men are so nice to have in our home."
