We are happy to recommend JDF Builders to everyone
"After much debate we made the decision to tear down our small, seasonal lake cottage and replace it with a permanent house. We couldn’t be happier with that decision and we owe it all to the fabulous job that was done by JDF Builders. Friends and family who had built new homes warned us to expect the whole process to be very stressful and intimidating. That could not have been further from the experience that we enjoyed while our project was being completed. From the initial planning phase to our completed home everyone involved was wonderful to work with.
Jay and his architect used their years of experience to create a house plan that worked perfectly for our needs and budget. They really listened to what was important to us and made sure that the plan reflected that. Building on a lake brings additional restrictions and permitting issues. We were very glad to have Jay on our team to deal with those headaches.
All throughout the build we were kept informed of what to expect next. The communication was great. We always knew who would be working on what and when they would be there. There are so many choices to be made in the home building process. Jay made sure that we had the information we needed well ahead of time so that no decision ever felt rushed. He was always available to answer questions and share his knowledge with us so we could be confident in our selections.
Sticking to the planned budget is definitely something that Jay takes seriously. Every detail is figured in before the project is started so there are no big surprises later on. The products and finishes that are quoted are ones that have proven themselves to him already. We never felt like we had to worry about making upgrades to get a superior end product.
One of the main characteristics we feel that distinguishes JDF Builders from different contractors is their insistence on quality. This was carried through with every tradesperson that worked on our home. It’s very apparent that the same high standard that Jay sets for himself is expected from others as well. This was especially reassuring in our situation, since we weren’t on the job site daily.
We came into this project with some idea of the home that we wanted but we ended up with so much more than we had ever imagined. Jay and his family were a pleasure to get to know. They really care about their customers and the work that they do for them. We are happy to recommend JDF Builders to everyone."
We knew that JDF Builders was the right builder
"When we decided to build our new home you were referred to us by our friends. We are so glad they did. From the first time we met, we knew that JDF Builders was the right builder. Your knowledge and experience is second to none. (Heck , you even had the meetings at our house for our convenience.)
Starting with the design you listened to our needs and were able to design the home of our dreams while staying in our budget. We thought it might be difficult building on our land because of the steep hill (no problem). Then came the construction and it was just like you said it would be. "That you would be building our home as if it was your own “From the products to the work that was performed, the quality and craftsmanship of JDF Builders and all the contractors is second to none. We never even had any questions because you would have the information for us already. We enjoyed getting to know and working with you on our new home. Thanks so much."
We will be enjoying our new home for years to come
"A special thanks to you for building our dream home. The interior and exterior design and being able to incorporate a mother in law suite that can later be easily converted was amazing. We will be enjoying our new home for years to come. You truly set a high standard for yourselves and the tradesmen you hire. Both of you have exceptional talents and we will be referring you to all are friends and family. It was a pleasure getting to know both of you and we look forward to many more cook outs."
We could see the integrity and professionalism
"We checked out several home builders before we chose JDF Builders. After our first meeting with Bruce and Jay it was an easy decision as we could see the integrity and professionalism. From designing our home through all phases of construction, the communication and the attention to details was excellent. Their experience and dedication to building the highest quality home is very evident. We can’t thank you enough as we fully enjoyed the home building experience with JDF Builders. We highly recommend them."
We are very pleased with our building experience
"JDF Builders built our home in the summer of 2007. This was our first building experience. We had a general idea of what features we wanted in our home. Jay and Bruce had many great ideas and suggestions that we incorporated into our home before finalizing the plans.
From the day we broke ground until the day we moved in, Jay kept us informed and updated on the progress. Jay is very conscientious and particular in his work. Even small things that we wouldn’t have noticed, Jay would point out and insist on changing.
We are very pleased with our building experience and would recommend JDF Builders to anyone. If fact, we had Jay come back and build our beautiful deck the following summer."
You have a talent at what you do
"We just wanted to express our deepest appreciation and gratitude for the amazing work that was done on our home by you and all those you employ. After getting a referral from a friend, we immediately called and summoned your expertise. We had consulted with other contractors but from the get go had no lasting impression and they didn’t seem interested. And there was you Jay. You came, gave us ideas, and from the first meeting seemed so easy to work with and committed to what you do. I can’t say enough, having a kitchen torn up is never easy to deal with. But with about 2 weeks, we survived. You made it easy. We heard stories of contractors not showing up, not completing the work, etc. This was our first experience, and we are thankful it was so wonderful. You and all your subs were always on time and got the work done. And there were no periods of things not getting done. It was amazing. My kids enjoyed all the workers here too, very kind, patient and committed to what they’re doing. You have a talent at what you do, and your pride shows in your work. I was amazed at how serious you took things and it just shows in your craftsmanship. The addition to the room upstairs was a breeze as well, always cleaned up at the end of the day, so there was no horrendous mess that we had to deal with. I know that when someone asks me for a referral for a builder/contractor, your name comes up, and we are committed to passing the work on to you because nowadays it’s hard to find dedicated and responsible people like you.
Thanks again, we are truly enjoying our new kitchen and rec. room!!!!"
It is beautiful and we could not be happier
"We have recently put an addition on our home. We added a new dining room with a deck leading to the pool. We decided in addition to the dining room and deck, to include a transformation to the whole front of the house. JDF Builders designed the plans for our project. It is beautiful and we could not be happier. The interior is seamless and the exterior entrance to the house is upgraded beyond our expectations! Our dining room project included quit a few windows and the finish work is excellent. Jay and his team are people of integrity and outstanding craftsmanship and will be able to envision your project right alongside you until it’s completed. The attention to detail, keeping us informed and getting it done on a timely basis was greatly appreciated."
Thanks for all the exceptional work
"Jay and Bruce have been trusted assets to us on our numerous projects. They basically have remodeled our house from front to back and top to bottom. Our kitchen and master suite projects are exceptionally beautiful. One of our favorite rooms is the addition of the 4 - season sun room which Jay and Bruce designed and built. Their knowledge, experience and craftsmanship are matched in value by their honesty and integrity. Jay also never gets mad when the lady of the house changes her mind several times during a project. Thanks for all the exceptional work."
Just wanted to say thanks for all you do for us
"Just wanted to say thanks for all you do for us. After all your hard work remodeling our previous home, we found a new place with spectacular views that we wanted to call home. The only problem was the entire house had to be remodeled and updated inside and out again. That’s why we immediately called you and once again you performed your magic. The outdated straight ranch is now our beautiful new home. The design and complete transformation of the interior to the exterior including the living room addition is really amazing. You should truly be proud of the work you do."
