I found a local contractor recommended in Lago - J&R Construction. I ended up using J&R for an elevated deck project that required a bit of design work to come up with something that was capable of holding a heavy spa. John was absolutely great to work with: * Largely, he does most of the work himself. When he needs assistance, he gets it, but he doesn't leave sub-contractors out there doing a job that he was contracted to do. * He has substantial attention to detail and if there are questions, he communicates. * He's technical and understands engineering plans/drawings. * He's conscientious about keeping a clean job site - not only after construction, but during construction as well. * He shows up when he says he will and actually pushed harder to complete a job than was really necessary for our project. * He communicates well, sticks to the plan, and addresses necessary changes well. * Included in his bid were things that I didn't expect - such as sanding and detail work. John made it easy to do the work that we wanted to do on our own, such as electrical and final stain. I've attached a link to the deck and a photo.

Review by in Leander, TX
Where do I start? First, John is the BEST!! Our home burned to the ground a week before Christmas in 2013. We hired a crook of a contractor that stole over $50k from us and did work that was not only hazardous, but wrong in every direction. John came in, took over, re-did all the crappy work and rebuilt our house from the foundation up. The finished product is better and more than we could've imagined. He is honest, shows up when he says he will, builds to the highest standards, prices fair and is the easiest guy to work with. I've owned and built several homes over the years, as well as used a multitude of contractors and sub-contractors in several states. I can honestly say that John is the best and most reliable contractor I've ever used. We will never use anyone again and we're going to have him build our next property as soon as we purchase some more land. If you are thinking about anyone else, you're crazy!!! He won't leave the job until it's done right.

Project: Install Drywall
John is great! We've used him twice and if we need something else we'll call him again. He's painted our living room and kitchen, and walled up our loft to create a home office. He's professional, quick and very clean. When he painted he even took down our blinds and hosed them off! He actually leaves things cleaner than when he started. We have recommended him to our friends too.

Project: Install Drywall
You can trust J&R Construction! As a single woman, I was so glad to have found them because I knew John would give me a fair price and follow through on his work. He and his wife Rosario are professional, they work hard, are smart and they try to make sure you are as comfortable as you can be in the middle of your construction zone, which is really important. They are great!

This was my third time hiring J&R, and I'm sure I'll be using them in the future. John knows his stuff but is also great at listening to my design requests. Really pleased with all the work he's done.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
