A Deck Contractor and Design-Build Company Trusted in Montclair and the East Bay Hills

We founded Schafer Construction, Inc. in 1988 with the goal of providing the best, most professional, honest quality services at a fair price to our customers. We are proud of the work we do, and the satisfaction of our customers is a reflection of our commitment to excellence.

We are based San Leandro and specialize in elevated decks and bridge driveways. Our services don’t stop there; we have decades of experience in foundation repairs and replacements, siding, windows and doors, kitchen and bathroom remodels, and more.

Elevated Decks

We’ve been working on elevated decks for over 35 years now. When it comes to heights, dimensions, and your dreams, we are fearless. When it comes to your reputation, we value it just as much as ours. We stand by our work. Each deck we build is designed and executed with attention to detail and precision.

No one understands the intricacies of this niche neighborhood quite like Rudi Schafer. The winding, tucked away streets of Montclair and the surrounding areas, always lead to a home, and no home is complete without a warm entrance. We live to help make your house your home. We believe that you should love every aspect of your home and that includes your deck and driveway.

We are dedicated to our community. Schafer Construction, in conjunction with Rebuilding Together Oakland (RTO), has been volunteering for over 20 years repairing churches, rehabilitation centers, schools, senior citizen homes, and city parks such as Children’s Fairyland, PAL Camp in Roberts Regional Park, and Sequoia Arena. For more on our involvement with RTO click here. We are also members of consumer and professional organizations like the Better Business Bureau (BBB) with an A+ rating, and the California State License Board (CSLB).

For over twenty-five years, property owners, property managers, and Realtors in the San Francisco Bay Area have relied on Schafer Construction as their first choice for all their structural repair and construction needs.

Community Involvement

For 21 years now, Schafer Construction, Inc. has been actively involved in Rebuilding Together Oakland (formerly, Christmas in April).
