Project: Basement remodel (wet bar, theater, fireplace, full bath). We contracted JM to design and build out a finished basement for our family of five.
After discussing our project with several contractors we were close to selecting one before meeting Jerry at JM. He was immediately able to offer thoughtful suggestions on how to better use the space and provided a fair and sufficiently detailed quote.
TRUST: A project like this requires you to trust your home to 'strangers' for months and this was not an issue at all. The JM team did a good job communicating when and who would be at our house on particular days and were flexible when needed. The employees I worked with were professional and courteous.
FLEXIBILITY: While we went into the project with a plan some changes were inevitable to make the project turn out right. JM was extremely reasonable with some of these changes along the way and in several cases pro-actively made no, or low cost suggested changes to improve the project. In the case of our bar, the team framed out the entire space per our design so my wife and I could see it and make adjustments before finalizing. This really helped put the space in perspective and allowed us to improve the design. Jerry and the team were extremely flexible with design choices (counters, colors, fixtures, etc.) and the outside supply firms they recommended were easy to work with and had a good selection.
QUALITY: We couldn't be happier with the quality of the workmanship. The drywall work was outstanding and in several cases, the JM team pointed out and subsequently fixed minor quality issues that I overlooked.
VALUE: We finished the basement so our family (read: kids!) could enjoy it, but I was also hoping some of the investment we made would be reflected in the resale value of our home. We refinanced after the project and received a substantially higher appraisal than we did ~2yrs ago, mostly covering the cost of the project.
I didn't know JM before selecting them for this project and stand to gain nothing from posting this review, I just want to share what a great job they did for our family.
