“JL Builders has done numerous jobs for us. Beautiful work, attention to detail, easy to work with and reasonable prices. Highly recommend them!”


“JL Builders did a magnificent job building our custom home. The level of attention and detail they gave our build was tremendous. They truly went above and beyond and were very eager to help in any way they could– From picking out land, to going through revisions of plans, to even helping us along the construction loan process– I can’t say enough about how great these guys were. Many people think of a custom build as needing to come with a hefty price tag. But JL Builders gave us the opposite experience. Similarly styled & sized homes in our area are selling pre-built without the same level of customization for well above the total price we paid. JL Builders listened to our vision and worked solutions all along the way to give us exactly the house we wanted, and within our budget.

But make no mistake there is no lack of custom details or high end fixtures and finishes. They built our completely custom house to the highest standards and included everything we asked for. If a selection we really wanted didn’t fit the budget, they worked relentlessly to come up with a solution—meeting with additional vendors and exploring additional options to stretch our budget. We got it all– Higher quality granite, hand-scraped hardwoods, highly custom lighting and plumbing fixtures, and top end mechanicals.

Here are a few examples of the high end work they did: They sourced and restored an antique clawfoot tub for us, they custom built the wood-burning fireplace to our vision, they built a custom high end staircase, and they built a custom banquette for our eat-in kitchen. All of these touches gave our house the character we asked for.

They were truly professional and they had a lot of knowledge and expertise not just in the build, but the whole process of custom construction. If you are considering building your own home and want a custom build at an affordable price, don’t settle for one of the main stream, cookie-cutter homebuilders– I highly recommend you give JL Builders a call. Don’t settle for a “package” deal where you get only some of what you want but not everything. Let JL Builders give you a truly custom experience and for a better price. We couldn’t be happier with the dream home they built us!”


JL Builders built us a beautiful custom tudor-style home, and we are absolutely in love with it! This was our first time building a home, and JL Builders made it a great experience. They were very responsive and professional throughout the building process. For every unique idea that we had, they found a way to build it. For example, they helped us to build a wine storage closet and custom mudroom for our pets. JL Builders was also instrumental in helping us to source high-end finishes from various places to minimize costs. We were able to install features like wide-plank oak hardwoods, a spa-style soaking tub, and high-end light fixtures at a fraction of the cost of other builders. It was a pleasure to work with JL Builders. We highly recommend them!


“Wow! Given the green light to use their creative talents while staying within the parameters of my budget, JL Builders surpassed my dreams when they added fiber optic lighting, gemstones and geodes into the cement countertop for the bar. The metallic ceiling paint used on the ceiling of an already unique tray ceiling was also a nice touch. If ever I want a perfectionist who will guarantee the quality of the work, JL Builders will be the first company I will call.”
