"Jay is very professional and knowledgeable about the business, whether the project is big or small, he gives a 100% attention and commitment. He has done all kinds of projects around my house and I am alway pleasantly satisfied. I strongly recommend him"

Jay and his team did a great job with some renovations in our house. He was very communicative during the entire time and was very organized and thorough in his estimates. While his prices were a bit higher than other competitors we met with, he was willing to work with us on some of the pricing. The work they did looks great and we wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future.

We were very pleased with Jay. All the way from helping us with design ideas to picking out the right materials. Thank you for our new spa shower and our kitchen back splash. Jay is a good communicator and always there to talk. We plan to use Jay on future projects

Jay redid my shower at a great price and he did an amazing job at a great price!!!!

Jay the Builder was super responsive to my request for an estimate on a bunch of work we wanted to get done around the house. Although we decided not to move forward with the work right away, in part due to the prices being a little higher than I expected, I'm confident they would have done a great job and appreciated their responsiveness to my inquiry. I would absolutely use them in the future.

Jay remodeled our master bath shower, tub and kitchen backsplash in October. He did an impeccable job and was on the job everyday until he finished. His attention to detail was so appreciated and the fact that every time I called him, he answered his phone was so refreshing. He certainly has our business from now on! Thank you again Jay, for going the extra mile for us! Kathie B

Jay did our master bath and guest bathroom of our home. My husband and I are expecting a child in Sept and we wanted to redo our bathrooms before the baby is born. Jay went beyond what we expected. Even though he had 3-4 other projects along with ours, he made it seem like we were the only ones. Jay pays attention to details, very knowledgeable, and does not cut corners like some contractors do. He was present when picking tile, granite, and glass. I must admit he suggested a dark metallic floor tile which I resisted because I didn't think it would look good in the bathrooms. Boy was I wrong. I'm so glad we trusted his advise because the floors are my favorite part of the bathroom now. We would definitely use Jay again with his rates and quality work.

"Wow... this guy... what a wonderful experience. Jay really bent over backwards to get our house wrapped up to sell. We had another painter fall through, Darrell with FX wasn't available either, we lost a couple of days trying to find a good replacement, and Jay came through with flying colors. Short fuse for sure. We had cabinets re-painted and a lot of trim work done throughout the house. He worked LONG hours to make sure we were ready for our listing date (let me stress this - LONG hours). Great work. Professional. Respectful. Clean. Good communicator. Fair price. What more can I say? I like the guy. A lot. He does it all - balancing a busy schedule of work, running around giving quotes, taking care of his kids (schedule revolves around priorities!), and almost always being available for a quick phone call update. Impressive. I've give him 10 stars if I could for bending over backwards for us."

"Jay and his crew were great. They came over to replace a shower/tub combo that had been leaking with a standalone shower. We are choosing to do the tiling ourselves but had Jay and his crew build a new shower pan, replace the walls and redo the plumbing. While some reviews have mentioned that his prices may be higher (I'll admit it was a concern of mine initially) I will say that the attention to detail and quality of materials he uses explains that. For example, our shower walls were not just replaced with your typical home depot/lowes type backer board but rather with a special type used for commercial applications and was waterproofed three times. I am highly doubtful that the other folks do this and I think is where the difference in price may come in. So, bottom line, if price alone is your main driver then you may get what you pay for but if you are looking for high quality that will stand the test of time (and the ever shifting foundation issues in Texas) then Jay is your guy."

"Just moved to town and needed a handyman to hang curtain rods and install my gas dryer. Spoke to Jay and he was over in a flash with his very good assistant, who did a great job at a reasonable price. Jay is knowledgeable & fair and will go above and beyond to help you in your home. I would recommend him to friends and family!"

Jay just finished my kitchen, and MY GOODNESS what a transformation! The pics speak for itself! Here's what I loved about Jay and his crew- Very professional and friendly, SUPERB communication, accurate estimate (does measurements and thorough evaluation instead of throwing numbers off the top of his head), fair pricing (stayed within budget even with unexpected electrical, wood, and plumbing issues), has connections with suppliers for the best deals on materials, has good taste and is blunt and honest about design ideas, go out of their way to do little improvements not mentioned in the contract, very detail-oriented and so particular about execution (he notices little things that I don't even think about or realize)... Gosh, the list seriously goes on! Our family feels super comfortable with Jay... My kids (specifically my 7 year old) compliments on what a great job he and his crew did every single day they were here! One thing I had to learn is to trust him, particularly with design ideas. Everything, from our floors, to the paint, to the baseboards, cabinets, backsplash, and countertops were all his choice! I had an idea in mind for the kitchen as a whole, and he knew what little things were needed to put together the vision! It was really weird cause I doubted his choices initially, thinking I knew better. But I had to trust his experience, and it turned out awesome in the end! I doubt my kitchen would be just had I envisioned it, had I chosen the original materials! Jay knew what it took to deliver the big picture! We are in the midst of planning our next home project, which pretty much includes the rest of the house. Can't wait!

"Jay was very helpful in doing some minor odd jobs around the house that I didn't have the equipment for. Courteous, friendly and willing to help even while feeling a little under the weather. He was even able to refer me to another quality contractor for masonry (which is something that he doesn't do.) Would hire him again."

Timothy M.

Jay and his team does great work at a fair price. I have used him on multiple handyman projects, and he is very responsive. I will continue to use his services in future.

Rajesh B.

Jay is at it again! New electric sockets, shelving and cabinetry in the garage. On a top of that, he is mounting all bathroom hardware. Amazing work!

Greg B.

Jay was a lifesaver for us. We had had our master bath done except that contractor took our money and never finished the job! A friend had Jay do some repair jobs before her house went on the market and he was very professional and paid very close attention to detail even if they were not going to be seen when the project was finished. He helped us out of a very bad situation and I would definitely hire him again and recommend him to anyone who is looking for someone to do outstanding work at very reasonable prices.

Becky R.

We had a downstairs guest bathroom project with Jay last year. We really enjoyed working with Jay and his final products! Jay is a very detailed person and helped us the design of the wall tile, box, threshold, etc. Project finished with expected time frame without any major issue. I highly recommend Jay the Builder for your next Bathroom project!

"This is your guy and your company for a remodel/renovation. We had several meetings with different contractors and companies. As others did, we thought Jay would give us the his preferred tile and granite places and send us on our way to make our selections (him not knowing we had felt very overwhelmed with this task prior). Instead, Jay spent his Saturday walking us through tons of tile and granite selections. We watched him slowly build (from samples) what would be our new kitchen and master bathroom. This is something no other company or contractor had even offered. Jay gave specifics and itemized our quote, again, something others failed to do on their proposals. He promised the jobs would be done in 4 weeks and he delivered. Like another reviewer said he was ALWAYS available for our questions and calls - even when he was out of town on vacation. Never did we feel like we were just a job. You can always get a job done by someone for the right price but to have peace of mind and assurance from beginning to end and even after completion is another story. The crew that worked with us (my boy, Kwame, and Garth) were great and complete professionals and made me so comfortable, even my dog loved them! Our friends and family are impressed with the quality of work and craftsmanship as are we. In the end, the work they did was fantastic and we couldn't be happier. We will be calling Jay on our next project for sure."

I have asked Jay to remodel my kitchen and within less than 10 days, Jay replaced the tiles, install new countertop and backsplash. I couldn't be more pleased with Jay's professionalism, great customer service and making sure I'm happy with the final result. I have already recommended him to my friends and colleagues. Thank you Jay,

Oshrint Funt

After being basically abandoned by another contractor, Jay really came through for me. He took time to go with me to the Tile Shop to pick out the best tile for my backsplash project, which turned out beautifully. He always did what he said he'd do when he said he'd do it -- a rare quality in today's contractor! Quality work done efficiently and a friendly guy to boot. You won't go wrong with Jay!

Denise Dupont

Wonderful experience, outstanding & trustworthy customer service. Project completion time exceeded my expectations by far. Jay & crew were a pleasure to work with...I would highly recommend his services!

Jennifer Phillips

Jay and his crew remodeled a bathroom for us, and they did a beautiful job! I am very particular, and Jay made sure everything was to my satisfaction, even though he had other jobs going on. He assisted us with all aspects of the job, including the selection of floor and wall tiles, as well as paint and grout color. I look forward to working with Jay in the future when we remodel the kitchen!

Sandra Munk

Jay renovated all three bathrooms, the kitchen, painted our house and ceilings, changed out all interior doors and replaced all baseboards. He did an excellent , professional job that everyone admires when they visit my house. His experienced was evidenced the varied recommendations that he was able to give us. Through conversation he immediately understood our style and vision and was able to guide our buying decisions. Jay knows the business and vendors in Dallas and has excellent taste. This can be seen with everything from the tile design, granite choices, fixture selection to paint colors. His attention to detail to ensure that rooms were finished was appreciated. For his level of expertise and experience his pricing was very competitive and I would would not hesitate to recommend him for any job.

Makeba P.

Jay did a very professional job with my kitchen. I have had a number of people who were amazed how beautiful of a job he did. Jay’s expertise was second to none when it came to picking out the floor tile to the backsplash to the countertops and other small details that made the kitchen a showpiece. Thanks Jay, I look forward to working with you on my next project!

The most impressive part of our experience working with Jay the Builder was his communication skills. From start to finish, Jay was available 24/7 to answer all questions and address any concerns in a timely manner. Coming from a corporate background, I especially appreciate Jay's professionalism, flexibility, and kindness. There is no "perfect" company or contractor; you can only hope, despite reviews, that all the stars align and things go as smoothly as possible. But when they don't, Jay is a great asset to have in your corner. We are happy with the finished product and look forward to listing our home on the MLS soon. Best wishes for your continued success, and we look forward to doing business with you again. Big shout out to Max with that great smile of his! Mucho gracias, amigo!

Wonderful experience...Highly recommend Jay and his crew

Jennifer Phillips

I have used numerous contractors in the past but Jay definitely lived up to his commitment to his client. He went above and beyond to ensure that my marble floors were exactly how I wanted them. I will not be using anyone else in the future because he is true to his word on delivering the product you hired him to do.
