Grijalva General Contracting, Inc. got its start back in 1995 working out of a one bedroom apartment in Newhall California. Newlywed's Bill and Melanie Grijalva were expecting their first child when they got their first client.
Bill started in the construction field in 1987 two years out of high school and became a master carpenter/framer, working under some of the biggest contractors in Los Angeles. Here he learned all about building and remodeling homes.
Seven years later he decided that he wanted to become his own boss. With Melanie by his side, their business grew.
Now, 21 years and 8 children later and now based in the mountains outside of Santa Clarita, Ca., Grijalva General Contracting inc, has become a leader in the industry.
Still focusing on home remodeling, Bill treats each and every client like family. He still works alongside his employees and subcontractors, hammer in hand.
Recently, William Jr. has started working alongside his dad and daughter, Aubrey is helping with design, marketing and photography. With 5 sons, there is a very good chance that Grijalva General Contracting will become, Grijalva and Son's General Contracting, or perhaps "Grijalva and Sons and Daughter's."
Melanie does the books and helps with the estimating and sometimes the design. With 8 kids and homeschooling, this is not always easy, but this husband and wife team work hard to keep their customers happy.
