JNT Developers Roofing & General Contractor

I’m a real estate investor and hired JNT to remodel a house I flipped in 2013-14. In short, I encountered all of the nightmare scenarios that you hear about with shady general contractors: poor quality work, multiple missed deadlines (and by multiple I mean one after another after another), and lousy/nonexistent communication about the status of the project. The owner of the company, Jorge Abreu (he goes by “George”), even admitted to me in an email that JNT did a lousy job, while at the same time stating that I was “an excellent customer”. I should have turned a very solid profit on this flip, but ended up losing money specifically because of the problems I had with JNT. When I tried to sell the house, it fell out of contract THREE times because of problems with JNT’s work that were discovered by the buyers’ inspectors. When I contacted Jorge and explained the problems I was having, he told me I should have given JNT more time to fix the problems. All this, despite already giving them WAY more time than was stipulated in the contract and, like I said, missing repeated deadlines. When I brought this to Jorge’s attention, he said that change orders were the reason the project was so far behind schedule. If you know anything about construction or remodeling, you’d know that these change orders should not have taken ANYWHERE NEAR the additional time that they did. NOT EVEN CLOSE. While JNT did offer to compensate me for the problems they caused, the amount they offered was absolutely laughable. It wasn’t even close to what they actually cost me. I would pursue legal action against JNT, but after seeing how poorly the company is managed, I’d be shocked if they actually were able to pay a settlement after losing in court, which means I’d then be out thousands more in legal fees. I’m sure Jorge, or someone from JNT, will respond to this review and try to somehow twist things around to put the blame on me. But like I said, Jorge admitted to me in writing that they did a lousy job. I have documented proof of EVERYTHING I’ve written above. I’m absolutely certain I could win in court if I chose to pursue that path, but I’m far less confident that JNT could pay. So I’m here writing this review instead. There are tons of general contractors in DFW. Trust me, you can find plenty that are better than JNT.May 12, 2016
Absolutely fantastic service - from the initial contact to the very end. As I was searching for the contractor, I was contacted by JNT Developers practically within minutes. After discussing the scope of work and seeing the pictures that I submitted, they were ready to start the work on the next day! We worked out the schedule and the crew showed up as promised. The office coordinator, Faith, kept the whole process smooth and painless. I also got pictures after the job was completed to show "before" and "after" results. I will definitely contact them on my next roof repair/replacement projects and I strongly recommend JNT Developers as a trusted business partner.May 21, 2015VerifiedJorge A.'s reply
