Other contractors might promise good results. But as many unfortunate consumers have found out first hand, not all contractors have the knowledge and expertise to back up their promises.
Len Nordeman, general contractor and general partner of Montgomery Sansome in Millbrae, is one of the few local contractors who can promise proven results. With 43 years of experience, and more than 20,000 projects under his belt, Len Nordeman knows construction inside and out.
Starting with his first job at a San Francisco Naval Ship yard, Len has been a hands-on kind of guy. "I built United States war ships, for Uncle Sam for four years including working in the submarine watertight division," he said. "I can make anything watertight."
At 22, he obtained a building contractor license and was, for a time, the youngest building contractor in California. Out on his own, Len began to run his company with the same ideals he still embraces today as leader of Montgomery Sansome.
All Kinds of Family
Many contractors hire subcontractors to complete jobs. While the work usually gets done, quality standards often aren't met. The overseeing contractor doesn't have full control of who is working in customer homes, leaving your family and your property unprotected.
Len Nordeman asks his own staff to handle every job contracted to Montgomery Sansome. The in-house team encompasses plumbers, electricians, painters and carpenters. Having a full staff under one roof allows for faster job completion as well as a more congruous approach to the business. One carpenter started working with Len in 1966, and many others have been with him for decades. Len knows and trusts his workers, and they consistently provide the quality work for which Montgomery Sansome is known.
A reliable team is more than just a convenience for Montgomery Sansome, according to Len. "We're more like a family. Everybody understands the goal—we're there to do a good job," he says. "I get such delightful reviews; the customers love the painters. They say they're clean, tidy and friendly."
The staff at Montgomery Sansome doesn't just seem like family to Len Nordeman—some of them actually are. His two sisters have worked with Len since he started and they all became partners in 1997 and some of his children work right along side the other workers. "I enjoy working with them, and they've lightened my load, and they all understand the true magnitude of honesty and far play," he says.
This idea of a family-run, family-friendly business has reaped definite rewards. Len Nordeman has maintained a complaint-free business record for decades. In fact, a recent random customer service report found that 100 percent of Montgomery Sansome clients surveyed would use the company again.
Customer relationships don't end with Montgomery Sansome when the job is done. "Almost every customer that I finish a project with becomes my friend," says Len. "I enjoy being with people, and I enjoy the fact that they like what we did for them."

What a great company to have in the Bay Area. Our house was flooded and the city recommended Montgomery Sansome. We were so fortunate to get Len and his company come to our house. They are in constant contact with us and the friendly extraordinary customer service he has shown us is exceptional. The best part is we feel like our job is the only job they have. The one to one service they have shown us has been top notch. The concern he has shown for our family, especially our two year old daughter, is something you don't see anymore. I would recommend Len and his company a 100 times over
