Featured Reviews for Architects & Building Designers in West Covina, CA
Brandon Architects, Inc.
Architects & Building Designers in West Covina, CA
"I am a local builder in Corona Del Mar, CA. I have watched and admired the many homes Brandon Architects has designed in the area. It did not take me long to realize this firm had many talents. By the time my next project came along, I made sure I would consult with this firm first. From their initial presentation to the drawings and site visits, I have been nothing but impressed. Chris and his team have proved to me they have talent, creativity and professionalism. My project is currently just past the framing stage, and Chris and his team visit my site frequently. Each time they prove to me they are there to assist and support me all the way to completion. I look forward to working with Brandon Architects for years to come.

Jeannette Architects
Architects & Building Designers in West Covina, CA
"My wife and I hired Jeannette Architects to assist us with a major remodel (interior/exterior) of our 3,500 sq. ft. ranch style home in Newport Beach. The task: incorporate warm contemporary design into our 1970's "woody cabin." As a real estate developer and because it's our third major house remodel there were many design elements we knew we wanted but many more that we needed help with. As capable as Jeff (Jeannette) is with his design sense, we believe that it's his ability to listen to his clients, understand client goals, how we will live in the space and how that fits into our budget is what sets Jeff apart from other architects. The Jeannette team met aggressive time constraints, produced a thorough set of construction documents, were always quick to provide clarification and answers to our questions and were great resources for product and material options and information. True professionals that we would use again and confidently refer to others. Our project is nearing completion and I can't wait to share photos."

Michelle’s work strikes a perfect balance between successfully addressing practical concerns and aesthetic excellence. She was a pleasure to work with and the homes she designed for me are beautiful!"

Dutton Architects Inc.
Architects & Building Designers in West Covina, CA
"We are nearing the end of a remodel/addition for which we hired Dutton Architects. Through permitting difficulties and modification reviews they were there every step of the way. From structural issues to the smallest of details there was always an open line of communication. They were always available to answer our questions and address our concerns anytime - even for a second or third time. Construction is a trying time for any family and working with a team sympathetic to that was so helpful. People literally slow down to look at our project as they are driving by. It is so uniquely ours. So happy to have hired them."

Hsu McCullough
Architects & Building Designers in West Covina, CA
"Chris and Peggy are the perfect team to build your dream house. They turned our traditional styled home into an amazing modern home without gutting out the entire house. I loved how extremely detailed and meticulous they were in designing every corner of the house and guiding our contractor along the process. Extremely professional and passionate about their work which reflects in the home I live now. People are constantly "wowed" by our house."

How do I find the best West Covina, CA architect for my home design or renovation project?


When building or renovating your home, you don't simply hire an architect or building designer — you build a relationship with them. Be sure you chose a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. Architecture is an incredibly technical profession and one where getting things wrong can literally put lives at risk, so ensure you hire a professional with a valid license or an architectural firm to maintain high quality and standards. Your next consideration will be architectural style. Some residential architects specialise in designing traditional homes or farmhouses, others in designing modern replicas of traditional homes. While a few have a knack for imagining bolder, more futuristic architectural design in West Covina, CA that incorporates the latest technology.

Once you have frozen on the architect or building designer, chat through your goals, projected budget, scope of work, schedule and any other specific requirements you might have. Ask them to walk you through the process, including the number of architectural design consultations, site visits and what they will be delivering and when, e.g. feasibility study, a technical drawing, tender package and/or planning application drawings. Also, get a sense of whether they are a good listener, collaborator, and problem solver. Finally, be sure to find out what the architect needs from you,deeds, rights of way, deposit, staged payments and so on.

How much does hiring an architect in West Covina, CA cost?


Home construction and renovation often have a preset budget and hence it is important to understand how much architects charge. While there is no set payment structure, independent architects may charge differently from architectural firms. Architects sometimes choose to calculate their fees on the basis of a per square foot rate. In rare cases, especially with smaller projects, West Covina, CA architects may choose to ask their clients for a fixed fee. Make sure the total figure and payment schedule is agreed as part of your contract, particularly if you are trying to accurately estimate the cost of building a house.


Questions to ask prospective West Covina, CA architects:


  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • Who will be working on my project? (This is very important if you hire an architectural firm)
  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Can you handle my special requests?
  • What is your experience with similar projects/ architectural design and style?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)

  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
