We had recently moved into the area and initially relied on ads in the local paper to find a contractor. After coming all too close to selecting a notoriously unethical contractor, we joined Angie's List. Eventually we chose J.K. Construction among several quotes; the best of the best we like to think. Jack is honest, trustworthy and a gentleman. He was true to the original estimate including maintaining an accurate log of receipts for materials he bought and delivered for us. His estimated time to complete the job was pretty good, too. Seldom did a day go by without a workman on the premises. He visited the job site frequently to monitor progress and was readily available by cell phone. It's hard to anticipate everything at the outset, but Jack was flexible to our changes while the work was in progress. He offered helpful advice on design including room layout. Jack did some of the work himself, and his laborers were very good craftsmen; framer, plumber, electrician, woodwork, tile layer etc. They maintained a tidy workspace throughout the job as well as removing any remaining debris by the end of the job. Jack made sure that everything was to our satisfaction before requesting final payment; just as he'd done with progress payments at the end of various phases of the project. The whole process went smoothly, and the end result is something we are proud of. I expect that we'll be calling J.K. Construction the next time we move.
