They started out reasonably well, but had one employee who did questionable work and was not properly supervised. He ended up leaving in middle of the job and left all his tools scattered about my garage. I was then charged in excess of the contracted amount and had to renegotiate the final payment. The quality of the work was only semi-adequate, at best, and some of the renovations did not meet code (they were supposed to use greenboard for the drywall since it was a bathroom, but used standard drywall instead). The toilet they installed leaked shortly after the work was completed. I had a plumber come repair the leak and he said the toilet had not been properly installed.

to start with they started thee months later than they said they were going to.then once the hole for the basement was dug it took another month for there block layer to show up .after showing up he worked alone laying over 1200 block which took another month which landed the project in the depth of winter.they never covered anything to protect it from the weather through out the intire job no matter what inclimate weather was predicted even on the week ends.but back to the basement.they then proceded to poor the 30-60 floor in seven degree weather with borrowed equipment and not one concrete man in the whole lot of there employees.it was the worst mess ive ever seen and i made them tear it out start over with profetional concrete finishers.well they would not use the men i recommended because they wanted a mere 200.00 more than the flunkeys that they hired so now our floor still isnt even close to being on grade.water runs to the walls but i guess we are stuck with it .and remember this is only the begining.we then had an argument about core filling the walls.i told them if they didnt they would move and crack if they didnt fill them with concrete and rebar.before back filling them.well they would not listen and after the house was framed and ontop the foundation they back filled and quess what the wall pushed in two inches cracked and started leaking.they didnt even want to fix it .they tryed to bs me and tell me that all inground walls move some and they would be fine.we had to hire a structural engineer to make them fix it which came at a cost of five grand.the entire rest of the job proceded this way this would turn into a ten page essay if i listed every lie and or problem that we had with these incompitant peaple so ill just say this.i would not wish these guys on my worst enemy we are still having work done here a year after the fact to stop the basement from flooding and drain runoff away from the house and these people hold there selves out as experts on drying up basements when they cant even build a basement that doesnt flood and leak

Our neighbor, son-in-law and I enclosed the covered patio. (took about a year). Drywall up 9/2010. Project stopped because our neighbor's job took him out of town for long periods and our son-in-law found a job. We had asked a relative if he would want the job, but he was busy. I asked around at work and got JM Construction. They are prompt and did an excellent job. I asked for additional minor things to do and we worked it out without a problem. We've worked with contractors before and some of them "hear you, but aren't listening." I think JM construction listens. We would hire them for another job and would refer them to others.
Recent Review: Just talked to Rich about getting an estimate for our basement repair job. As soon as I described what was going on over the phone, he could tell that he wasn't the right guy for the job but he explained what sort of service pro I should look for instead. So I can't review his work, but I really appreciate getting such an upfront response that wasn't trying to sell me on something I didn't need.
