Here is an extract from the California State Board of Equalization Publication 61 relating to construction/property improvement sales/usage taxes - tax would be due on the billed value of the materials:

INSTALLATION LABOR—Labor or service to install or apply property sold is not subject to tax, but the charges for other services in connection with a sale are subject to tax.
