Great Price and Top Notch Service
I just got done working with J & B Improvements during the construction of a new deck, and I have to say I am quite content with my results.
I began the process by contacting 4 competing contractors in our area, including J&B Improvements, trying to find out who could give me the best bang for my buck. The J&B guys wound up getting the job due to their excellent price, extensive and up to date licenses, and the professionalism they exuded which some of the other contractors simply did not.
In this awful economy, however, the biggest plus in their favor was the affordable quote they gave me. While quality and professionalism is important, unfortunately raw prices played an equally substantial role in helping me decide who to use. I think I got lucky, as this company is one of the few diamonds in the rough that doesnt suffer in terms of quality despite being the cheaper bidder.
After the easy part, came the hard part: actually building the deck. Their workers consistently arrived very early and stayed until the end of the day, they were funny guys who I had some great conversations with. The best part, however, was the fact that I was allowed on the site of the building, which was important to me because I liked making sure the project was going in the right direction. At one point, in the middle of the decks construction, I decided I wanted to add something new. I was at first adamant about this, since I thought it would throw the contractor off or cost me a fortune, but actually they were very eager to hear what I wanted and did the accentuation for a very decent rate.
I will definitely save J&B Improvements to my little book for my future needs, and I highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for that rare affordable quality in a market full of sketchy companies, rip-offs, and inappropriate practices.
