We had a full bathroom gutted to the studs and redone entirely. Best things I appreciated about the experience was 1) The proposal was incredibly detailed and procedural, which is something our other candidates did not provide, 2) Jim, John and Jose showed up every weekday, consistently and timely, and took the necessary and thoughtful steps to protect the rest of the house, 3) The work was perfor...

The man they sent stole my mother's credit card and attempted to purchase over $4000 at Home Depot! Luckily for her, the self check out was flashing and the worker would not accept the card!

I have been in construction for nearly 50 years, so I have developed a keen eye for quality craftsmanship. Our project was no small project, so there was a genuine concern that the right company be hired to do our project. After reading J T General Contracting's reviews, I reached out to Jim for an estimate. Again, as I stated earlier, I have been involved in construction for nearly 50 years, so w...

Very good. Jim gave us a quote and told us the extent of the work his crew would have to do. He also advised us up front that until they opened up the drywall, they could not be 100% sure there would not be more than the initial estimate. There was a little, but he did not try to gouge us and it was a fair price. His guys did a great job, and they left is as clean as they could. He also repaired s...

Jim replied to all messages in a short time, and did an excellent job when we hired him. Finding the door we were looking for was very difficult. Jim contacted many vendors and showed us several options until he found a door very similar to what we were looking for. He did a very good job covering the area around the sitting room and cleaning after work was done. The result was excellent. We are v...

Jim was friendly and very professional. First we didn’t have a clear idea of what to do with our old deck within limited budget. He advised us what needs to be done and what we can keep. We are so happy with our new deck upon his advise!

JT Contracting / Jim were incredibly thorough in explaining our options to replace wood porch steps. They had been constructed in a way that they were taking in too much water and as a result were rotting much sooner than they should have. The work was completed on time, their workers were thorough and professional -- and we're happy with the end result.

JT did a complete gut remodel of our bathroom. The work was done professionally and we are very satisfied with the completed project. It did take a while for them to get started, but once they did they worked continuously through the end of the project. Would definitely use them again!
