Recent Review: JCB Construction provided labor for post earthquake repairs and kitchen remodel February 19-March 21, 2019. The owner, James, and son Ryan did an excellent job. Their work was meticulous, manner reassuring and workmanship exemplary. The project took longer than scheduled but we were not dissatisfied due to circumstances discussed below. We appreciate JCB Construction’s job so much that we are having JCB remodel our master bath in April, 2019. Here is a detailed review. This job was our first major remodel. The 2018 quake caused structural damage to deck supports that were installed improperly when the home was constructed in 1982. We insisted upon municipal permits and inspections for the deck work. A guest bathroom downstairs needed total replacement of floors and shower surround with porcelain tile. Drywall cracks and compromised joints were concentrated downstairs. Drywall work was needed downstairs in two rooms and stairwell in addition to the bathroom. Since we were having these repaired, we decided to have an overdue remodel of the kitchen: modern cabinets installed, over-range microwave with vent through the ceiling, porcelain floors, new porcelain flooring and glass backsplash. We opted not to have minor drywall repairs done upstairs. With the exception of a subcontracted pile driver for deck supports, James and Ryan did all the skilled labor themselves. Their skill and attention to detail were evident throughout the job. We were asked, advised and included in many small decisions regarding details along the way. We attempted to have most materials, fixtures and connections on hand at the job’s start. We made some mistakes in choosing just the right stuff. James and Ryan were very patient in getting us the right stuff. Often the workers would insist on doing some detail work BETTER AND NICER than we expected. They were always right and the result more satisfactory than our way. James and Ryan are very skilled at all aspects of our project: demolition, drywall, plumbing, minor electrical, tile, cabinet installation, finish work and painting. The pile driver James hired for the deck was swift, professional and friendly. In the bidding process, James provided references who attested to skill in more extensive renovation projects. The project DID take longer than planned. Some of our mistakes in ordering supplies resulted in lost time. The granite install started a bit late and fabrication took a week. For a couple of days tile work was stalled waiting for the granite install. Rightly so, the tile installer worked these days at the next job. Workers were on site every day except these two days and weekends. We never felt like we were slighted to accommodate another job. Wisely, James planned a week between our job and the next scheduled job. James was very supportive in assuring us that the finished job would be worth minor delays and snags along the way, Cost listed below is for labor and supplies. We purchased cabinets, appliances, tile and fixtures ahead of time.
