    The job started in April with replacement of the original builder's grade deck. The finished product is aligned with the concept drawings yet so much better. And the additional pergola is the perfect addition. The addition seemed to take a long time to come together and be under roof. And then the original walls started to come down, the spaces came alive, and it starts to be understandable; why so much effort goes into the rough construction. Bob and Kris along with the team that worked thru to this point have done a tremendous job helping us to live in a construction zone. I was told 6 months. We have had some set backs and of course added work. We will see how the timeline ends up.

    The project scope was to completely gut and renovate the kitchen in an old, redbrick home (1902 approx.). The original space was dark, cramped and worn out. J Francis made new openings in the interior and exterior walls, resulting in a much brighter, useable space, with views onto the rear garden. We would be happy to employ J Francis for future renovations.

    Having worked with numerous contractors in 3 states over the past 40 years, I'm pleased to tell those of you who may read this survey that these guys are the real deal! Dave Meyers was our project manager and his professionalism and attention to detail in every aspect of our project was unparalleled in my experience! The job site was kept clean and orderly, and the employees and subs were respectful and courteous at all times. I cannot say enough about the principal too; John McCloskey - I've gotten to know John recently, even more now that the job is complete, and he is the reason this well-oiled machine called J. Francis Co. is so successful! One of the real surprises were the suggestions they had along the way to help me reduce costs during our $250K+ renovation. In my experience, most contractors go the ‘other’ way. They went out of their way in fact to try to NOT charge any extra for small things that come up with every job, it didn’t happen all the time, but it was sincere in its attempt - rarified air in today’s uncertain business world I can tell you that. I also loved the fact that none of my tenants complained (too much) during the project, which was done without interruption to their day to day work habits. They worked evenings and weekends to avoid any disruptions during normal hours, and built this into their bid – a VERY pleasant surprise too I must say. I think if I used one word to describe this company for potential new clients who were wavering about who to hire, I’d say HONESTY. Dave and John may not have always told me what I wanted to ‘hear’…but they ‘always’ told me the truth! I would be remiss to 'not' give one more thumbs up to Dave again, whose daily emails/site visits/calls and professionalism made this 4 month project the best build out experience I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in! You will NOT go wrong letting the team at J. Francis do 'your' next project!!! In fact, I invite you to come to our offices and see their work anytime - I am proud of our new offices, and J. Francis (and a quarter million bucks) made it happen! Dana DiVecchio – President – Holland Mortgage

    This was our first experience in having a major home renovation. We discussed the scope of the work, and since it involved both our kitchen and bathroom we decided to leave town during the work period. We were very impressed with the amount of planning time and the beautiful ideas that were presented by the designer, Melanie Verbaarschott. We were kept fully informed of the progress during our absence. When an unexpected problem was discovered, it was addressed promptly and solved beyond our expectations. It was so exciting to come home to our beautiful new rooms. Thanks to the J. Francis staff and the work crew for such a lovely job.

    From the conception of our project to the finish, we felt it was handled like a professional construction site with weekly in-home meetings with all the members of the construction team. We're absolutely thrilled with the outcome. The final product exceeded our expectations.

    Our Old Main Building chapel's 100 year old, curved, plastered ceiling needed replaced, and the walls and trim needed painting. J. Francis subcontracted as needed to remove hazardous materials and to coordinate the replacement and painting. The job was completed on schedule so classes could resume. The job was completed under budget. Craftmanship was exquisite, and professionalism was top notch. Out of 4 stars possible they are a 4 star company. By: Jeff L.

    I'm only about 2 weeks into the process with J Francis and David specifically, but having had extensive prior build/design experience I can say unequivocally they have been nothing short of a joy to work with. The job is left clean daily, and the workers I've met to date are professional in look and manners. So far frankly, it's too good to be true, so stay tuned for more extensive critique good or bad as the job progresses.

    The ability of J. Francis Company to manage the construction project from beginning to end eliminates any anxiety over the process and allows more time to be focused on design details. They are easy to work with and make the process fun!

    It's nice to see that I get the same level of service. Guys were professional in every aspect. I appreciate that they tore down at the end of each day so my family had our house back when we got home from work; and that it was clean. Nice to see someone come thru as they promise.

    The J Francis Company did a beautiful job on my building. They transformed an abandoned, run down building into a gorgeous medical office for me. They are hard working, intelligent, trustworthy people who communicate well and get the job done on time. I would not hesitate to call them again for any future project that I might have.

    I have worked with many contractors, professionally and in my personal affairs, and have found J. Francis Company and its representatives to be honest and forthright. From executing the construction contract through the midway point in our project I have always known exactly what to expect. If I have any questions I have received prompt attention and the questions have been resolved. There is more work to be done, but I am confident that the job will be completed as agreed and to my satisfaction.
