We hired Jerry to fully paint our new home, tile our bathrooms and laundry room, add a kitchen backsplash, and update sinks and shower in our bathrooms. He did a tremendous job with all of the work, with a careful eye to detail. He also helped us to add a few "extras," like under-cabinet lighting, once he got started. He was trustworthy, hard-working, and did a really quality job. We found the pricing fair and straight-forward, with Jerry willing to work with us to help us save money as we moved along. We absolutely plan to work with Jerry again in the future!Apr 4, 2016Verified
Very happy with Jerry's paint job in our new home! He is timely, friendly, hard working and priced very well. We already have several projects lined up for him in the near future and look forward to working with him again!! Highly recommend!!Jun 1, 2015Verified
We hired Jerry to completely a remote home remodel for us. We were in Chicago while Jerry was remodeling our home in Cincinnati- not an easy task, but he did an excellent job. His quote was more reasonable than others', and we also liked the fact that he only takes one job at a time (finishes start to end before taking on a new one.) He retiled our bathrooms, installed new vanities, new tub, and new fixtures, replaced granite countertops with quartz, painted, installed a new backsplash, added railings to our staircase, installed new light fixtures.. just to name a few. We highly recommend him and would hire him for more jobs in a heartbeat.Apr 9, 2017Verified
Absolutely recommend! Jerry always reaches for the stars! His work is as perfect as he can make it - in his words “trying to be perfect in an imperfect world”. The work he did for me included a remodel on an existing bathroom, building/creating a second master bath, remodeling the kitchen, painting and hanging new doors, redoing the laundry room floor, painting all the rooms, building a linen closet, putting crown molding in the living room and kitchen, building shelves and a cap for the half wall between the living room and kitchen. He also put in a drain in front of the garage, helped the electrician, and made a very unattractive large crack in the living room ceiling disappear. Jerry is creative, intelligent, and friendly. You won’t be disappointed if he decides to take on your job. Btw....you can trust this guy with your life!Feb 13, 2019VerifiedJK Construction-Remodeling's reply
Thank you so much!
We had a water leak in the kitchen that ended creating a project that included: removing an old range, cutting some cabinets to fit the new range, patching, painting and wall papering. After no luck with reliability with another contractor, we tried Thumbtack and found Jerry. What a blessing in disguise that the others were flakes- he has been terrific! If you read other reviews and think, "This guy is too good to be true," don't worry; he isn't! He is just a rare breed! Where to start....first, he was very fair and reasonable on the price. Apparently there is an industry standard pricing guide that set process high (hence the sticker shock with everyone else). If he feels that it is unreasonable, he works down from there. His rate was reasonable enough that we could add in changing the title on our backsplash. But this does NOT mean quality is sacrificed. He is more than experienced and it shows. He is extremely neat (never leaves a mess), and his work is careful. A true generalist, he has ended up helping us with other problems that ironically occurred while he was here. I asked him to remove the sink for me so that I could apply some stone finishing to our counters, and he saw that our wiring for our disposal and dishwasher was not up to code (and it wasn't!). He fixed that. Our basement had water in it after rain one night; he helped up trouble shoot where the leak was coming from (it was from a crazy odd place, but he helped our insurance adjuster to find the leak! Our adjuster liked him too, btw). He also fixed a support on our porch that was cracking. From drywall to roofs, he is a household renaissance man. He really went beyond the call of duty for us, and was never, ever "pushy". To top it off, he is very kind, friendly and honest. A couple of days he needed an extra set of hands and brought a couple of workers with him, who were also neat, skilled and polite. I could go on but you get the picture! ;-) My father was extremely handy this way and always did anything around the house with skill, care and integrity. I didn't know anyone else was cut from the same cloth until we met Jerry. If you are lucky enough to grab him, do so.Jun 16, 2014Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I consider keeping the cost down as part of my job.I typically take 20% off labor because I don't agree with standard pricing on alot of things.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically I try to visit the homeowner to get an exact idea of what they want,figure up a quote that I feel is a good price and set a start date.I don't schedule any other jobs till I complete the project.Each homeowner has my full attention till completion.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have 33 years of experience in the field.Started out as a trim carpenter on high end homes.I have experience in all finish areas of work for interior and exterior remodeling.
