“Exceptionally talented”

We've used Jackson Remodeling 5 times over the past 15 years. First was to do seismic retrofitting of our old house - bolting the house to the foundation. A couple years later they refinished our bathroom and kitchen (walls, windows, cabinets). After that they rebuilt a fence and tool shed. Our big project was over the winter of 2010-2011 at our new house. They managed the remodeling needed (new roof, insulation, gutters, some paint and electrical work, new hood over the stove, custom-built bathroom cabinet door, and more).

Last year they devised a way to divert rainwater from under our deck away from a basement door in a very confined space. Totally a one-off custom job that has worked to perfection. Erik has been our lead contact person through all of these projects. Besides being a very fun person to work with, he is an absolute professional. Crew members (like Josh) are exceptionally talented. They communicate well throughout the project; their budgets are accurate; they are timely; they clean up; they are a real pleasure to work with.

“Excellent attention to detail”

We hired Jackson for a kitchen & bath remodel of our 1903 house. We hired them in part because of their specialty in identifying “green” building solutions, which was important to us. We found them extremely pleasant to work with, they came up with some really great design ideas, especially for our bathroom, and did excellent work. They were also very accommodating to our participating in the remodel, doing the demolition and tiling ourselves, and handled a couple of small “bumps” along the way with sub-contractors very well.

The employee who did most of the remodel, Josh, was great: super enjoyable to work with, accommodating to our requests, and paid excellent attention to detail in all parts of the job. In particular, he did an amazing job of installing very tall kitchen cabinets along walls that are not only un-square, but actually bowed. While I’ve heard endless nightmares from friends about contractors going way off-budget, Jackson did a solid job in their budget estimates so there were no big surprises. They are honest, knowledgeable, do really nice work, and are completely pleasant to work with and I’d definitely recommend them.

“The Jacksons saved our basement!”

“We got an initial quote for our project from them about 1 year earlier and, honestly, choked at the price and thought we could get someone else to do it for less.  Long story short, the contractor we hired gave us a favorably low quote (on which we based a cash-out refinance), but after months of discussions, he finally said he couldn't do the job for that price, leaving us with a stripped-out, useless basement. 

At that point I called Jackson remodeling in a very contrite panic.  They worked with our restrictive budget, doing the "heavy lifting" as Erik describes it, and leaving most of the finish work for us to complete as agreed.  They fast-tracked our project.  Their carpenters were willing to try new techniques and materials I suggested.

As with most remodeling projects, we had some surprises, which were resolved easily since we maintained clear, open communication through the job.  I appreciated their commitment to "green" construction practices; they willingly used salvaged and low-VOC materials as well as recycling most of the debris.

Everyone at JRL was very professional.  They worked with us and respected and respectful "partners" on our project.  They respected our privacy and schedules.  They made sure the work was left neat at the end of each day.  We will use them again if we have any new projects, and have recommended them to friends.”

Design/Build Remodeling Works!

The design/build concept is a departure from the "old" way of doing things - hiring an architect to draw the plans, then putting the plans out for bid and hope that contractors can build it for something close to your budget.

Some clients even expect a budget before design work has been done! How could anybody estimate the cost of a kitchen or bathroom remodel before cabinets and finishes have been selected?

Design/Build remodeling is one-stop shopping for design and construction. You work with us for the entire project, from concept to completion. We provide "real-world" pricing information, timely feedback on the budget effect of decisions you make, and help you design your project to get the most "bang for your buck".
