Remodel & Renovation

Home remodeling projects come in many sizes and shapes … from updating a kitchen or bath  to undertaking a large-scale renovation. And to complete projects like this on time, within budget and on schedule, it really makes sense to hire an experienced home renovation company.

Although most new homes adapt easily to remodeling projects, older homes require particular care and attention. The team you hire should have experience with increased structural demands, working with aging electrical and plumbing systems and dealing with the potential presence of asbestos and lead-based paints. In order for you to take advantage of the full value of your investment, it’s critical that any changes look like they were part of the original design, and not just added on.

When you choose Surfside Developers you get a team of dedicated professionals working together to guarantee that your project is a success. Our experienced project managers and team leaders keep your remodeling project on track and provide you with detailed information about your choices and options at every stage of the project.

At Surfside Developers, we have the experience to make sure your project is done right.

Kitchens & Bathrooms

  • Kitchens

Since we all tend to gather where the aromas of good food originate, a well-designed kitchen is the social center in your home. Therefore, it is only natural that we want our kitchen to look beautiful, yet be functional. From designing your dream kitchen, to installing the cabinets and counter tops, or putting in the lighting and flooring… Surfside Developers will be there every step of the way.

  • Bathrooms
Does your bathroom need a facelift? Most people are looking for more luxury and more overall space and storage in the bathroom. Thoughtful planning and attention to detail are the keys to success for any bathroom remodel. Whatever your desires and budget, Surfside Developers will evaluate your family’s lifestyle in order to achieve the remodeling results you desire. A well-done bathroom represents an improvement in your home’s attractiveness.



New Construction

  • New custom homes, from plans to move in, we can get it all done.




What is Design/Build Construction?

Design-build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the design-build team – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. One entity, one contract, one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion. Design-build is also known as design/construct and single-source responsibility. Across the country and around the world, design-build successfully delivers custom projects with superior results.

  • “Surfside Developers has my hearty endorsement. Derek spends time on consultations. He is open and flexible and he listens to his clients. The boys take pride in their work and they clean up after themselves! SD works quickly and efficiently to achieve a great end result.”

Annette – Bay Park, California



  • “Derek has been by far the best contractor I have ever worked with and his ability to listen to my clients and react to their needs is above what I had ever expected. Derek being classically trained and professionally educated shows. Dereks knowledge of both the practical and the possible allow him to do both small and large scale jobs and for that there is nothing I will not refer his way. Derek has done over 25 jobs for my clients over the years and I hope to continue to do business with him in the future!”

Seth O’Byrne – San Diego, California



  • “Our experience with Surfside Developers has been outstanding. They came highly recommended to us by our trusted real estate agent assisting us in a remodel of our recently purchased home.

With past contractors our experience has always been a hit or miss proposition. And so we were very nervous about committing to a major renovation on the order of $70K plus.

Nevertheless, we were very confident of the plan upon our very first meeting with the owner, Derek Wattenbarger. Derek listened intently into our vision of what we wanted the remodel to accomplish and faithfully carried out the plan. And just as important, Derek provided great insight and advice to improve the execution of our plan when he saw opportunities to do so, as well as cautioning us when some of our original ideas were not economically feasible or may have contained an unforeseen downside.

All through the process, Derek was completely straightforward, transparent, and respectful. Communication was terrific. All calls, emails, texts, etc. were returned promptly. He even introduced us to all of the various sub-contractors so that we had an opportunity to establish a relationship with them and communicate the details to the next level. Finally, and probably most importantly, the quality of the finished work was great, delivered on time, and within our overall budget. What more can you say than that? Highly recommended!”

Jack and Sue Serrino-Del Mar, California



  • “I was very pleased with my experience with Surside Developers, Incorporated. Derek was extremely professional, pleasant, and easy to get in touch with. Our 1975 kitchen and Bathroom desperately needed updating. They gave me a bid for the remodel and supplied me with sample Granite pieces for the Counters. Our job was completed on the day they said it would be and the pre job estimate was nearly spot on. Both the Kitchen and Bathrooms turned out fantastic. I was very impressed with the work they did for me, and I highly recommend Surside Developers, Incorporated to anyone who wants high quality service at a reasonable, respectable price.”
