OUR TESTIMONIALS


I hired JCD Construction after investigating several companies. I loved that they specialize in bathrooms and expected them to be knowledgeable which they were. From the first meeting when we reviewed the work and requested a quote, we knew that we had chosen the right company as they fully understood the work, We removed the existing shower and put in closet space which was badly needed. We removed the jacuzzi and put in a large stand-up shower with a bench. JCD gave us a complete description of what they would do, with a very good price. They were very easy to work with and solved a couple minor problem along they way. We are very pleased with the final product and are enjoying our modern bathroom, especially the large shower.

A friend highly recommended John Dericks, JCD Construction, when I admired the work he had done on her renovation. I met with John and told him I wanted to update my kitchen. He and Noel Green (his partner) took it from there. They were professional, reliable and very easy to work with. I was so pleased with my beautiful kitchen, I had them move on to the den, bathrooms and bedrooms. They’re great and I will use them again!

Use John and his crew ONLY if you want a truly professional experience. This is a contractor who knows the meaning of doing things the right way. No fooling around! He is always a step ahead and wants to do the job the best way possible. Our modern master bath makeover has been a pleasure to use since its completion 2 years ago and has had absolutely no problems. Working with John and his crew was a pleasure. I would never hesitate to use their services again.

We selected JCD Construction to renovate our 30+ yr old master bath after interviewing and getting quotes from several other contractors in the area and getting referrals from friends. John also worked with us on our budget. He and Noel helped with design decisions and were professionals in every way. They not only completed the renovation in a timely manner, kept the area neat during the renovation, used quality products, but also agreed to do other small projects not in the plans. We love the result and highly recommend JCD to anyone needing a renovation.

We first used JCD Construction in 2007 to remodel our master bathroom. We were so pleased with the results, we hired them again to paint and update our kitchen in 2009 and to replace 3 sets of french doors off our family room in 2012. John is very meticulous and always completes work to our satisfaction and Noel can’t be beat on tile work and painting. They always seem to go above and beyond....usually adding something extra to finish off project. John offers valuable suggestions when selecting materials, and his knowledge has been spot on. His estimates are fair and they spend a full days working once they begin a job. We also trust John and his crew to be alone in our house. We have recommended JCD to several of our friends, and they too have been pleased with his work.

More than 15 years ago we met John Dericks when we wanted some minor renovations done to our newly purchased home. His work was so outstanding that we have had him do all our renovations/repairs evern since. This includes total renovation of our master bath, replacement of all our inside doors, renovation of the guest bath and a myriad of other small tasks. In all jobs, John has been respectful of our needs and always very neat and tidy. We look forward to using him again whenever the need arises.

I first hired JCD Construction for my kitchen renovation 10 years ago, after purchasing a large fixer-upper. John Dericks’ attention to detail and dedication to creating a design-oriented project impressed me. I still get compliments on my kitchen and after 10 years it looks like it could have been done a year ago.

JCD Construction has completed several other major renovation projects in my home over the years, the most recent being a master bath renovation completed last year. JCD is the only contractor that I have hired to work on my house. They are always on the job when they say they will be, they show up prepared, and leave the work area in order at the end of each day. My next project will be the kids’ bathrooms and I can’t wait to collaborate with JCD.

We have been dealing with JCD Construction for the last fifteen years. The first project was a remodeled bathroom. The workmanship, dedication and follow through convinced us that JCD Construction would be our “go to” in the future. Next JCD completely updated our kitchen. They moved the sink, tiled the floor, closed an entry to the garage, built in an island updated the electrical and lighting and provided all new cabinets and appliances. Despite all this we only lost use of the kitchen for one day! JCD met all our expectations and then some.

JCD remodeled a hall bath, replacing the tub with a tile shower and all new cabinets and lighting fixtures.
The most recent project was converting a bedroom into a master suite with a 20’ X 20’ addition for a master bath and walk in closet. It also included a hot tub and walk in shower of glass blocks. This was a major undertaking with a splendid outcome.

In all these projects the workmanship was precise and pricing was fair and within an agreed upon budget. JCD are excellent craftsmen and keep subcontractors accountable. No job too big nor too small. We are very proud of the work JCD Construction does for us.

In 2009 we were introduced to John and his team as a result of a competitive proposal process to do a total renovation of our kitchen. After a careful evaluation process, we chose JCD Construction to do this important project. We were so satisfied with the result that we sole sourced to JCD the renovation of our master bedroom, master bath, two other bathrooms, dining room, foyer, outside patio and even our garage. For all intents and purposes, John is rebuilding our home, and we couldn’t be more pleased. Here are some of the reasons why: John is personally involved in all aspects of our projects. He and his team provide ideas and solutions to any problem we might encounter. They are respectful of our home. They work neat and clean up everyday. We also trust them with our home and have given them total access when we are out of town. They stand behind their work and make quality their number one priority. They are enjoyable to be around and, occasionally, John even has a funny story. And let’s not forget Noel, who just celebrated her ninth year anniversary working with John. With a degree in home interiors, she adds a woman’s touch to every project and is not afraid to voice her view, always respectfully. This is a good team.

My wife and I chose to work with JCD Construction based upon recommendation and
reputation. We have remained with JCD Construction based upon satisfaction with a job that is well done and timely completion. The quality of the workmanship is excellent, his pricing is fair, and his time lines are very accurate. The team of staff and subcontractors have consistently demonstrated knowledge, professionalism and integrity.

JCD has performed several renovations for us including a kitchen overhaul, minor renovations to two bathrooms, the repair and remittances for some flood damage, custom cabinetry and replacements of exterior doors. All of these jobs have met the expectation for timeliness and avoiding cost overrides.

With all of this said, my number one reason for continuing to work with JCD Construction is due to integrity. I feel as though my home is safe and protected when they are handling home issues for me. I have recommended them on several occasions to friends and will continue to confidently do so.

When we decided to remodel our two bathrooms, we did research work to determine which contractor could fulfill our goals. We chose two contractors to contact with JCD Construction being one of them. We presented our scope of work and our goals to the two contractors and requested an estimate on the cost of the project. John Dericks, JCD Construction, provided a very detailed and thorough cost analysis that gave us confidence he had the experience and knew how to do the work. We were looking for a contractor who could meet our cost parameters, had a high level of skills to do a high quality job and would be reliable and dependable. JCD was selected as our contractor.

It was obvious from the beginning that John and Noel had the skills and the passion to do the tasks that would meet or exceed our quality expectations. It was a joy and relief to watch them work in the different areas that required different skills. Watching Noel do the shower tile work was amazing: her skill and her obsession to make the shower a thing of beauty.

John outlined his planned schedule and how they planned to progress. Reliable and dependable! They came to work on time, worked diligently and steadily and we knew what to expect every day. If there was a situation that required altering the daily plan, we were communicated with in advance. There was never a delay waiting on sub-contractors or late delivery of parts. They always had a plan B that they could work on and continue with the scheduled progress. We never had to contact them regarding timing or scheduling.

Cost is always an issue but this project was managed so well that the detailed plan and cost estimate were maintained.

In addition to meeting our goals of quality, reliability and cost, we enjoyed several bonuses working with John and Noel. Their communications with us were friendly, courteous and very thorough. We never had to wonder about or question anything. They were very careful not to impact the adjoining areas in a negative manner and left their work area in an orderly manner each day. The biggest bonus was their desire to meet our expectations and express ideas that would enhance our bathrooms. Their ideas never impacted our major goal and plan but were additive. A suggestion to modify the lighting plan to provide more flexibility and improved lighting was excellent. An idea how to work the door arrangements did an excellent job of reducing the negative door operation and provided a significant increase in “open” space. Each idea and cost impact was explained thoroughly so could decide if we wanted to implement the idea. Their ideas were very creative and additive to the overall bathroom remodeling. Their desire to provide us with two very attractive bathrooms was impressive.

When the bathrooms were completed we were very happy and pleased. Our expectations had been met or exceeded. And we never had to contact JCD to correct or improve any of the work, first class quality work.
