Nancy Plasschaert


"When we started looking for a contractor, my sister recommended hers, and I thought, wow, nobody I know recommends their contractor. Usually when the project is over, most people have had more than a few things go awry, and, with unmet expectations and unresolved conflict, they just want the whole thing to be over with.

My sister gave me several examples of Bret’s integrity during the course of her kitchen remodel. I was impressed. My own experiences with contractors and the horror stories of others left me wondering how we could trust anyone with our remodeling dreams. But by the end of our project, I had my own inspiring story with Top Shelf Construction, and it bears witness to their integrity, work ethic, quality workmanship and attention to detail."

"We had our kitchen remodeled by Top Shelf Construction in the fall of 2007. We also had our bathroom remodeled in the spring of 2009. Bret Gedryn and his crew are phenomenal. Not only did they do an excellent job, they were all polite, punctual, hardworking and all around very pleasant to have around the house. They were nice to the kids too. They were professional, courteous and left the workplace clean and orderly every day.

For how troublesome it can be to do a remodel, the whole process was really minimally intrusive. Bret is thorough, reliable and trustworthy. He will come back and fix things to your satisfaction. We trust his expertise and his character. We have been very happy with the work done on our house by Top Shelf Construction and have recommended them several times."

Group Orthopedic MD


"In May, 2007, there was a flood in our orthopedic office. We were introduced to our contractor, Bret Gedryn from Top Shelf Construction. He worked with our Architect, Structural Engineers and X-Ray Engineer as well as many of our own subcontractors including X-ray, computers, landscapers and roofers.

Brett was available anytime there was an issue and he resolved problems with calm and confidence. As is the case in all construction projects, we had a few obstacles and unforeseen circumstances that arose during the course of construction.Bret and company made sure they were all overcome quickly through open communication and got the job done right and on time.

All inspections went well and we are back in our beautiful building. I am the office manager and had to deal with all phase of this project from the initial flood cleanup through the final box being moved in and I can truly say that Bret and Top Shelf Construction made the job much easier."

"We just had some construction done on our home and they finished in January. We used Top Shelf Construction and were EXTREMELY happy with them! I have had horror stories with contractors in the past and I’m very picky with them! They were really good, VERY reliable, showed up on time or early every time and always kept me informed of the latest! I would highly recommend them! Bret Gedryn is the President of Top Shelf and that is who I dealt with. He is based out of South San Jose. His number is 265-3238. Just let him know that I recommended him. I told him I would be happy to recommend him to anyone!"

Dean and Kelley Fletcher


"Bret Gedryn of Top Shelf Construction built our dream home after a devastating fire in June of 2008. We could not have been more pleased with the quality of the craftsmanship provided by Bret and his crews. The project was brought in on budget and two months early! Bret kept us involved and appraised in the status of our project throughout the build, and his crews were professional, friendly and efficient as they conducted their work. We would recommend Top Shelf Construction to anyone who is considering a remodel or rebuild of their home."
