meet the builder: about jay

I am thankful.

I have been able to make a living doing what I love to do.  I feel appreciated by my clients who frequently become my friends and vise versa.  I am surrounded by a team of competent people who are all doing what they enjoy doing.  And we have pride in our work and a sense of accomplishment with each project that is hard to put a value on.

There are good builders who started with business degrees.  I started with a tool belt and a nail sack and kept them on as long as I possibly could.

We have a lot of successful projects completed over the last 30 plus years.  New homes, additions, restoration work on historic homes, restaurants and office renovations, and an uncountable number of kitchens and baths and smaller unique tile and trim jobs.  We are construction experts, unique in the diversity of our abilities.  We treat each project as if it were our own.  That may be a sales pitch but it isn’t a lie.  There are no lies here.

I’m trying to set the highest standards for quality and customer service.  I have associates that have been with me for decades that feel the same way I do.  You probably already heard about us from whoever sent you in our direction but I’ll take the opportunity to promise our best effort to produce fine work performed in a professional and respectful manner.
