Description

We are a family run business and I am a 4th generation contractor, having recieved my first contractors liscense in 1978. We specialize in remodeling light commercial and residential buildings. Our skill set is framed in meeting the needs of our customers with a focus on troubleshooting problems and recomending specific solutions. We place emphasis on doing turnkey work and have the ability to provide design and build services. We self perform some carpentry related tasks, but bring in sub contractors to help get larger projects done more quickly. I always rely on licensed plumbers and electricians to do specialty work, while applying for building permits and having the proper inspections completed as occasion requires. Since communication is such a large part of success, we use smart phones to stay in constant contact with our customers as we work together. Payments with Visa are possible. Generally we require 50% payment upon acceptance and the balance upon completion....

From initial consultation to completion, we recieved the highest level of customer service and quality workmanship that went beyond our expectations. A deteriorating wood deck was replaced with a composite that required additional engineering for the weight of the new material. Dorson carefully designed the structural reinforcements and directed his team in precise installation. We couldn't be hap...

The project is about 50% complete at this time and we can’t say enough about our wonderful experience with Jackson Construction (Dorson Jackson).

Dorson responded immediately to our call and met twice with me at the property, with our insurance adjuster. He provided detailed bid pricing, and created drawings for the repair work the very next day. His quick response and ability to work with and explain the scope of the job to the insurance adjuster made the approval process easy. Dorson has applied for the necessary building permit and plans...

Mr. Jackson was quickly able to come by and take a look at what projects I have wanting to get done. He was able to discuss ideas and suggest how projects could be performed to still keep the integrity of the home while also updating it. No remodeling services have been rendered at the time of this posting.

Dorson Jackson and his crew did a beautiful job with this challenging project of converting a small storage room in the basement into a full bathroom for our special-needs teenage son. They solved unique situations with plumbing (did you know that pipes can be flushed 'uphill' with a special injection system?) and created the most lovely bathroom in our entire house in a timely and affordable way....

Very prompt, and provided some ideas about what I wanted to accomplish. Also gave me perspective on the cost to do the work. I appreciated the upfront, straightforward discussion which led me to not move forward with the project. If I had moved forward I would definitely have had Jackson Construction.

It went great! Better than great. Dorson is patient, friendly, personable, and professional. His attention to craftsmanship almost doesn't exist anymore. He wants to do a good job because it's an inner drive, and you can't find that very easily these days. He hires the best people and demands the most from them. He exceeded our high expectations and he brought the project in under budget. He has o...
