James did an amazing job for us on both our fireplace renovation and built-in bookshelf unit. He was reliable, super easy to work with and gave us great advice on what might work best in our space. We absolutely love what he did to transform our living room area into a much fresher and more modern space, and we can’t wait to have him come again when we are ready to move on to updating other areas of our home!

James was excellent from beginning to end. He installed an additional kitchen cabinet for us to use as a pantry. James was very helpful with design and ideas and incorporated the new cabinet into the existing seamlessly. The new cabinet looks like it has been there all along. His work is neat and he pays great attention to details. We would highly recommend James.

I have known James since childhood and I knew that I wanted to forgo the builder’s built ins and hire James. After seeing all of his work and meeting with him to take measurements and talk out ideas, I knew it was the best choice. James exceeded my expectations and did the best work I’ve seen. I would recommend him to anyone. His pricing was extremely reasonable for the quality of work he does and the efficiency of the job. Thank you James!!

My wife and I had a small tv wall unit with a fireplace. We have 9 foot ceilings with detailed trim around them. We hired JL contracting to build a larger wall unit using the existing tv stand and fireplace to make it look like a built in. James did an outstanding job with special emphasis on the detailed trim to match our home. We receive many compliments on this outstanding workmanship.

He was extremely professional and supported every decision we made! He offered his opinion and with our own ideas he created something perfect! During the process we changed our minds on some of the design elements and he was super supportive of our decision! Will DEFINITELY use again for other projects around our house!! Thank you!!

I want to write a note of thanks and much appreciation to you James, for your exceptional work on our book shelves! You turned a plain wall, very difficult to decorate, into a spectacular showpiece! The detail is exquisite and your work is impeccable! I love my bookcases and they are so fun to decorate! I have recommended you to several of my friends, who are also very pleased, and will continue to do so. Thank you.

James did such an amazing job in our empty mud room. He completely transformed the space and not only brought our ideas to life, but made them even better than we imagined! His attention to detail and craftsmanship definitely sets him apart from others. He stands by his work and is so easy to work with. Loved our experience and will definitely be having him back for more custom and home improvement projects!

Before working with JL Contracting & Design, I didn't know what to do with my books. I just threw them all over the floor and played "the floor is lava" all the time, jumping from book to book.
