My wife and I chose Dave Sipes and ESI Builders & Remodelers to construct our new home in Serrano because Dave immediately made us feel completely comfortable about the process. During our new Custom Home Project, Dave Sipes thoroughly reviewed the process that ESI goes through with us to make sure that our expectations were met and exceeded by the end of the process. Another bonus was the fantastic team that ESI put into place. For example, Dave Sipes suggested Miles Ostermann who worked with us to design the home and Diane Nicholas who has helped with the rest of the design details. We would highly recommend Dave Sipes and ESI Builders.
From the beginning, David Sipes (President, ESI Builders) was focused on building an energy efficient home. Our development included the use of integrated tile photovoltaic cells, solar water for the pool, a tank-less water heater with recirculating water for instant hot water on demand, radiant barrier insulation, adjusted low U value windows based on sun exposure, and high R-Value insulation. Great features to make our home sustainable! The additional cost of the state of the art energy-saving features ESI implemented in our new home was offset significantly by rebates and tax credits that Dave passed directly to us. With this complete combination we sacrificed nothing in the amenities of our custom luxury home, and we have run net negative electricity bills since moving in.
Dave was in the field nearly every morning, pipelining tasks efficiently and supervising a tight timeline in a very hands-on way. We were impressed by his problem-solving ability and engineering acumen, while at the same time others involved in the process and even passers-by complimented us on both his courtesy and his professional skill.
We would recommend you consider Dave Sipes and his team, without hesitation and would be more than happy to speak with anyone about our experience! We would also invite you to take a look at our custom home in Rocklin as the strongest testament to their work!
We especially like the “transparent “cost breakdown of fees and charges. ESI works off of a flat builder’s fee so that each time we make a change request the builder fees will remain the same. Dave said that he should not expect to make extra fees just because we chose more expensive finishes, appliance, hardware, etc. – what a great concept and way to build trust!
I cannot commend ESI Builders enough for the quality construction and finishes of our large home remodel project in South Lake Tahoe. The quality of workmanship, product selection, and the top-notch subcontractor team created a living space and luxury that is incredible! I would highly recommend ESI for any project! My husband and I are very pleased with the quality and energy efficiency of the 1,000 square foot home addition completed by Dave Sipes and ESI Builders last year. From the initial project start through completion, the ESI team was transparent about the schedule, our costs, and any issues or problems – best yet, they delivered on every commitment. Visitors to our home rave about the transformation and quality of our new living spaces and kitchen – we couldn’t be more pleased!
The energy updating project we received from ESI Builders on our home was phenomenal! Not only has it helped with the comfort level but has helped with lowering our electric bills. Dave Sipes (ESI Builders) and his crew were very conscientious of our home and were meticulous with their clean up. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for exceptional work.

The energy efficiency and other projects at our house such as installing a new hot water heater, door weather proofing, dry rot damage, and porch reconstruction work was completed in a timely and professional manner and the quality of work was outstanding. I would not hesitate to utilize ESI Builders in the future.
Plain and simple, Dave Sipes at ESI Builders is a top notch contractor. He is knowledgeable and stays on top of projects. We can’t recommend him more.
The ESI project team did a great job on the renovation to our home. The new kitchen, granite countertops, open design changes, and wood flooring all look great – and best of all, the project was completed just in time for us to move in.
