Description

My name is James Merritt. As owner of Big Jim's Home Repair, I have over 20 years of experience in most aspects of construction and home repair services. My goal is to remodel, or fix your home so that the only reason you will call me back is to have me do another project for you or to give me a referral. In other words, I don't want to hear that the job I did for you was not to your satisfaction. If I have to come back to bring the job up to your satisfaction, I don't look good, I don't make money when I come back to fix it and most of all, I will lose your confidence and the possibility that you will refer me to your family and friends. Email me or call me with your questions!...

Jim answered the phone on the first call...what a concept that a contractor actually answers a phone call today in this outrageously busy industry!!! I was impressed. Super nice guy, Big Jim, who came out and gave me a bid to repair a fence with a fair amount of dry rot. I hired him. He removed bad boards, shored up the weaker ones, installed new where needed and repainted the entire fence. This m...

I hired Big Jim to do a couple of small jobs – clean the gutters and repair the gutters where they had come loose from the house in one spot, and also to add a threshold piece inside where carpeting had pulled away and left an exposed spike strip between hallway carpet and bathroom tile. He was able to fit me into his schedule quickly and I was pleased with the work he did. I had him give me estim...

The jobs were completed quickly and professionally.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had a laundry list of things that needed to be fixed to get our house ready to put on the market. The most critical items were related to patching drywall in places. It is no easy thing to match texture on the walls. This was done expertly so that the repairs are invisible.

We bought a light fixture that we wanted to install over a canned light. Bought a converter kit, but wasn't sure how it was all supposed to come together. We called Big Jim to install the light.
