About Us


In 1981, Frank and Phyllis Rebarber founded the company as union contractors specializing in high-end work. With over three decades of experience, Rebarber Enterprises has become the San Francisco Bay Area’s #1 Division 10 Subcontractor. John Shillingsburg purchased Rebarber in 2006, and the company is now characterized with rapid growth (revenues up 30% yearly), expanded service offerings and three times the number of highly qualified employees. Recently, Rebarber secured the Levi Stadium job—proving the company’s ability to complete even the largest jobs on time, on budget and with zero punch-list work.
