Construction and Remodeling Company Speaks Out on Commercial Remodeling

SAN PEDRO, CA: Silva Construction (, a construction and home remodeling company in Southern California, spoke today on the importance of hiring experienced contractors to do commercial remodeling. While there are many reasons a business would undertake remodeling (not the least of which is a business acquiring/leasing a new building to operate from), Silva Construction spoke on some of the potential pitfalls of undertaking commercial remodeling on a DIY basis.

The company sited concerns about hazards to conducting DIY remodeling and renovations on commercial properties when the persons involved are not experienced with construction. For the safety of all concerned, it is generally recommended to call a general contractor to inspect the job site and carry out any remodeling or renovations that require expertise. The company also sited economic concerns as a factor that many business owners may fail to take into consideration. While a DIY project may appear to be more economical, paying a general contractor to oversee the project will almost universally be done more efficiently in terms of time and materials. A remodeling or renovation done with incorrect or inferior materials can result in the need to redo work if anything breaks down.

Dave Silva, co-owner of Silva Construction, stated “When you are starting a new business, or you have an existing business that has moved into a new building, you will run into situations with the floor plan that you need to adjust to your business. Commercial remodeling is something we have a lot of experience with. We’ve remodeled offices, schools, churches, etc. We even turned a laundromat into an art gallery! Any job is possible, if the crew you are working with is experienced and knows the right tools for the job.”
