Your Project Deserves — and Will Receive — Attention from the Top

Justin Schuder, Owner of J & M Remodel, will be your primary contact from the start of your project through completion. Justin will prepare the bid, including the budget for labor and materials, that J & M Remodel submits to you for your project, and will review the bid with you to ensure that you clearly understand the costs and duration for your project. In many cases, Justin personally creates the detailed plans and drawings that render the design that you've discussed so that you have a clear understanding of the work that will be done. If you've engaged an architect for your project, Justin will meet with you and the architect to ensure that the design and budget align, and to help identify any issues and offer suggestions to alleviate them upfront in order to avoid delays or added costs.

While each of our craftsmen are extremely skilled and capable project managers themselves, from the time you request an estimate through completion of your project, Justin will be readily available and will check in frequently in person. We carefully schedule our resources so that we can give each project the personal attention that it deserves. We understand that a home remodel can be disruptive, and we go to great lengths in order to make sure the process is as pleasant as possible for our clients.

Each of our craftsmen are with us for the long haul. We do not use day-workers or subs on our team. You may rest assured that we carefully screen each of our employees, and as valuable members of our team and family, we hold them to very high standards of professionalism and work quality. We carefully select partner companies who perform specialized tasks on specific projects for the same level of craftsmanship, attention to detail, and professionalism that we demand from our team.

A Resident’s Impression of J & M Remodel’s Professionalism on the Job Site

Robert (Rob) and Ben, members of the J & M Remodel team, are working on a remodeling project in an apartment building in Seattle. Recently, one of the residents emailed the building owner about their impressions of the J & M Remodel team. Here’s an excerpt from the message:

"just wanted to drop a line and say how delighted I am with the workmen working on [a resident's] apartment.

I stopped by to introduce myself and also let them know that when the bathroom is not usable they were welcome to knock on my door if they needed the facilities.

Yesterday [a resident's] mom was here and Rob let us take a look inside as to what they had done so far.

I was amazed not so much from what they had done but from the fact that I had heard none of it. maybe a bump or a thump but not the kind of noise you would expect to hear.

not only that but Rob told me that he had been playing music and I cannot tell you how nice it is to have someone who doesn't have the music blaring when they're working. In the past sometimes the workmen you've had had their music so loud that even though they were on a lower floor I could hear it up here. not everyone is out of the building during the day, so Rob and Ben are very much appreciated.

I realize that there will be a lot of noise coming up, there's no way to avoid it, my dad was a construction man and our house was always under construction in one form or another so I'm used to it. But to know that these two gentlemen, and I stress the word gentlemen, are so conscientious is really delightful.

Thank you so much for hiring them."

At J & M Remodel, we strive to do the best work we can on every project. We also do our best to make the quality of the work that we do the main memory that you have of our time in your home. One way that we do that is by reducing unnecessary noise whenever possible. Everyone at J & M Remodel understands that remodeling projects are disruptive, and we do our best to be respectful to our clients in every way we can.

Bathroom remodel turned out great

Everything turned out great; J&M did a great job on our bathroom. Not only the workmanship, but they were very intuitive regarding organization and cleanliness and being sensitive to this old house. I look forward to working with the J&M team in the future.

Kitchen remodel with a new baby

Our kitchen remodel was our third project with J&M. With a 6-month old in the house, it was important to have access to parts of the kitchen throughout the project and for the project to finish on time. Having worked with Justin and Russ in the past, we knew they would deliver. We’ve definitely found a partner with J&M, and we will continue using them for future projects.

Six Years and we are still happy.

We have had a relationship with J&M for six years. And yes, they deliver high-quality work at a fair price. And yes, their attention to detail and customer service is exceptional. But what puts Justin and his team into a class of their own is that they stand by their work 100%. Justin's willingness to show up, troubleshoot and solve problems long after the initial work was complete gave me absolute trust in him and his work. Thank you, Justin and the wonderful crew for making our master bathroom so beautiful.

Exceptional Work & Service

J&M remodeled 3 bathrooms for us and far exceeded our expectations. Their work was of the highest quality as was the professionalism of the staff. They were responsive to our requests and provided great advice that resulted in 3 uniquely different bathrooms. Should we decide to undertake further projects, J&M will be our choice.

Fabulous Job - Highly Recommend

I have worked with a number of construction companies, both for personal needs and as a Realtor. J & M is by far one of the top companies. They do excellent work, clean up after themselves everyday, and on my project, the final amount was less than the estimate. How often does that happen? Our project was making some changes to our basement to create an ADU.

 by R. O, on J & M Remodel and Repair
Master Bathroom Remodel

We redid our master bathroom - tore it down to the studs, knocked down a wall, full tile, glass shower - the works.

Top three things we looked for in a contractor (1) finish on time, (2) communicate regularly and (3) be neat. Having done home renovations (while living in the house) before, these were must haves. J&M nailed all three. They finished their work a week early. They explained the plan for the week at the start of the week and communicated next weeks plan at the end of every week. Finally, they cleaned up after themselves every day.

The only challenge we had was our fault. We used a designer and acquired the materials through their suppliers. We ended up short on tile and had to reorder which took a week. J&M just worked around it. Our major issue was a miscommunication between me and my wife which lead to the counter tops coming in a week late. Totally our issue, no issue with J&M. This leads me to the pointer. If you haven't ordered your materials yet, and J&M can get what you want, order through them and they will sync timeline.

Overall, very happy with J&M. We have already slotted our next project with them in December. And will be using them for a kitchen update sometime next year.

Responsive, easy to work with, and expert finesse on every level

“I'd previously hired J and M Remodel a few years back, and given their excellent work at that time, didn't hesitate to hire them again for this more extensive job. They did not disappoint - and in fact, exceeded my already high expectations.”

“.… let me reiterate that I am blown away by the difference between how it looked when you started the job and how it looks now.”

“… As for the work on the house, Russell is a star, as is his assistant Bob, and I appreciate everything they've done on the house with so much care and attention to detail. After Justin left the house following my meeting with him last Wednesday, his crew talked about what a great guy Justin is, and how much they liked working with and for him - and they didn't know I was listening at the time. It's a testament to how good Justin is at what he does that his own employees sing his praises like that when he's not around to hear them do it!

I'm so glad I found you two and J&M Remodel to work on the house, and appreciate it more every time I come up there. Thanks for everything.”

Very happy with bathroom remodel

Brandon did a great job on our bathroom remodel. He did several follow ups to ensure there were no loose ends. The remodel took a bit longer than we would have liked but overall, we are very happy with the results.

…a simply outstanding job.

Reviewer: Jens and Jill M., no city given, WA - 7/16/10

J & M Remodel: “I am writing this letter to express our appreciation for your dedicated efforts and to thank your company, J&M Remodel and Repair, for the job well done in finishing the bathroom remodel in our house from June 21, 2010 to July 16, 2010. Within the three weeks of construction, your company and especially your craftsman Ehren, has shown diligence and dedication to finish quality work in a timely manner, which we really appreciated. This obviously greatly benefited other little pending projects we are handling (and expecting!).  I witnessed Ehren handling many different tasks with enthusiasm and motivation, and when combined with his natural abilities it always resulted in complete success. He listened carefully to our requests, provided clear explanations and possible options and was also very quick to recognize important ‘situations’, which resulted in overall satisfaction with the finished product. Ehren’s attention to detail and finishes, as well as communicating required feedback for upcoming tasks in a timely manner has been very remarkable. Again, we appreciate your work and we would not hesitate to refer J&M Remodel and Repair to other home owners who are also in need of quality contractor services. This letter serves as a formal acknowledgement of our sincere appreciation for a simply outstanding job.”

…a wonderful job for me in my kitchen.

Reviewer: Verna M, Tacoma, WA - Undated

J & M Remodel: “J & M Remodeling did a wonderful job for me in my kitchen. French doors were replaced, and I am so grateful. I had more than 3 contractors come out and all they did was make minor repairs that never fixed the problem of water coming in. J & M were the first to tell me to completely replace the doors. It was just what was needed. No more leaks! I recommend them to anyone & everyone. Very friendly & extremely polite.”

Thanks for the great work!

Reviewer: AJ W, no city given, WA - Undated

J & M Remodel: “My wife and I recently needed our upstairs bathroom remodeled, but didn’t want to break the bank. We heard about J&M through another customer who had some work done by them as well, and recommended that we approach them specifically to save on some custom tile work. After our first meeting, it became apparent that these guys were going to be able to do much more than just tile. After all was said and done, we got our entire bathroom redone by them and are extremely pleased with the results. We have already referred several friends to J&M in the last couple months, and will go back to them for anything else we need in the future! Thanks for the great work!”

J&M did a great job.

Reviewer: Mark J., no city given, WA - Undated

J & M Remodel: “J&M did a great job. They cleared the yard of plants that were in the way, made repairs as necessary, primed the house, painted it, did the trim, all within a week’s time. They did a great job, but as I told Justin, the fact we got back to the house after they were done, and everything was put back where it was originally, made it look like they were never there. Except for the fact that the house was very nicely painted.
I will recommend them to anyone I know looking for any remodel or repair work. Pricing was also very competitive, and in fact very reasonable based on what I’ve seen out there.”
