    Fantastic! There is no other way to describe our experience. We hired Jack for both a kitchen remodel and water damage repair. He met with us and brought us through the whole process. He was in constant contact and did exceptional work. We couldn't be happier with the results. I couldn't recommend him enough. We have already recommended him to a bunch of our friends. If you are looking for a contractor that gets it done right, Jack is the guy.

    Jack met and even exceeded the high praise I heard from every reference I spoke with before contracting with him. I would not hesitate to call for his services again. We valued his attention to detail, his skills, work ethics, knowledgeable advice, timely communications and management style. Our extensive remodel of two bedrooms and miscellaneous carpentry throughout our house was completed to our total satisfaction, as priced and as scheduled. JoAnne and Chris A. Billerica, MA

    Took great pride in his work and ensured things were done according to our liking. Did a great job communicating the schedule and sticking to it.

    We never thought we would be writing a glowing review about a contractor... but Jack really is that exception to the rule. Over the years, we have dealt with many contractors. They have ranged from the just about okay to the incompetent - and in a few cases, the downright dishonest. Jack is different - a rare breed who combines skill, attention to detail, and integrity. Our's was a large project: finishing the lower half of our house, including flooring, ceiling, paint, construction, some HVAC rework, and a bathroom renovation. Everything was completed to the most exacting specifications, on time and on budget. From the very beginning, Jack took charge of all the details, supervising the various subcontractors and executing the plans flawlessly. When things occasionally didn't go as expected, Jack stepped into the breech and got us back on track. For example, when we found water on the floor one day, he tracked down the source of the problem and reworked his schedule to help us find an appropriate solution. No fuss. No drama. No sleepless nights. The price was competitive, but perhaps more importantly, it was accurate! Jack spent a lot of time ensuring he understood exactly what we wanted. That allowed him to price the job properly. And that meant no nasty surprises for our budget. Value for money. No question. Oh, and did we mention he's also a very nice guy? Jack gets our highest recommendation.

    Good quality. Very reliable and when he says he will do something he does it. Always on time. Very trustworthy. The project and payment schedule was very clear from the beginning.

    The communication between them and I was great--if there were any questions or concerns that had come up he would contact me immediately and we would find a solution immediately. He stayed on track with the time frame of the project as well.

    Jack did an amazing job in creating a family room in our unfinished basement. He was meticulous and detail oriented in his planning as well as execution of our project. He was organized, professional, and considerate. He was thoughtful in the details of the project, and communicated with us along the way to ensure everything was too our liking. We were extremely pleased in our choice to hire Jack!

    Jack is a highly skilled craftsman & managed our kitchen project from conception to completion. We're pleased with the quality of work & the other professionals he brought in to ensure the project was completed to code and our expectations. He was easy to contact via phone or email & responded quickly to any concerns or questions, Jack arrived promptly every day & cleaned the work area at the close of every day allowing us to continue use of the area as much as possible. We will absolutely use J. Delaney General Contracting for our future home improvement needs.

    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.
