“My wife and I have a few investment properties that we generally take care of ourselves. We had recently bought a duplex that was in need of a lot of exterior work that we couldn’t do ourselves. Both of the apartments were in nice shape on the inside, so we had planned to renovate the outside while not disturbing the tenants inside. Sounded so simple! I started interviewing contractor after contractor for the Mansard-Hip roof style repair, as well as the pole gutter replacement work. There were at least 15 interviews, some saying ‘no problem’ or ‘this is right up our alley’, others saying ‘no thanks’ or ‘can’t be done that way’. Our vision was a very simple one that no one else would agree with. A buddy of mine gave me M. Jay Builders’ number, when we met at the house he was already up the ladder. He asked me what I had in mind, and after I told him, he said ‘that is exactly what I see too’. We have used him a couple more times and will be hard pressed to even consider anyone else. They do excellent work and stand by what they do!” – Paul & Piera T.
“M. Jay Builders did an absolute amazing job building our addition. It is absolutely beautiful! The contractor and his workers were very respectful, reliable and dependable. I would recommend M. Jay builders to anyone that is looking for good quality craftsmanship to be completed in a timely manner. They will meet or exceed your expectations! We look forward to working with them in the future for our other home projects.” – Jennifer P. & Daniel C.
