Columbus-area contractor warms house with new furnace, fire pit
The list of things that Jennifer Starr wanted to do to her Dublin, Ohio home just kept growing. So when she wanted to cross off some of the bigger items, including a four seasons room and a patio, she looked on Angie’s List.
Starr contacted multiple companies, but she decided to go with highly rated JNP Construction Services of Pataskala, Ohio. She says that owner Jacob Pleger gave her the most reasonable quote, and she appreciated how he was upfront about what a job with so many miscellaneous tasks would require.
“He was clear from the beginning in telling me that I might need to upgrade my furnace due to wanting the new room and a finished basement,” she says. “I ultimately decided to put the basement project on hold and go with the room, patio and various other projects throughout the house.”
Starr had JNP install new light fixtures, a new furnace and additional ductwork and crawl space under the four seasons room, as well as adding storage in her laundry room and garage. They put hardwood flooring in three rooms and tile in two others, and they changed all of the hardware in her house to brushed nickel.The job started last fall, and after taking a break over the winter, ended in March.
Although it’s nice now, Starr says there were some headaches during the process with local regulations and inspectors. However, she says Pleger kept the job on track. “I had a very long list of things I wanted done at my home, and Jacob was great at keeping up on the list and keeping me updated on the status,” she says.
The crowning achievements, she says, are the four seasons room and stamped concrete patio with a fire pit. Her family now spends many evenings outside, relaxing and watching the flames. “My family has been very pleased with Jacob’s team throughout the project, and my new room is now my favorite room in my house,” she says. “I’m also excited to be using the patio this spring, and the kids are having fun making s’mores over the fire pit.”
