5.0 Matt M. Rochester, NY

I got a few quotes from several companies for some bathroom remodeling work and was shocked on how high the labor charge would be. On a recommendation from a friend, I contacted Josh and found his quote to be much more reasonable. I suppose I was a bit skeptical that he could do what I wanted for the price. I wound up asking for some additional work on top of the original estimate and the additional charge was right on par with my expectations. Josh worked with me to go over all the materials that he needed to buy for the job and the finishes I wanted and sent me the exact receipts for the materials. Along the way there were a couple times when I wasn't completely satisfied with how something was done but Josh immediately re-did it and made sure I was happy. Overall he did a great job for a very reasonable price. I also appreciated that he was personable and eager to share his knowledge and experience. That made me comfortable asking him questions about the work so I could keep informed about what exactly he was doing every step of the way.

Josh is great for first time homeowners who have many questions. He will not only patiently answer them but also generously share how-to technical tips. He's advised on multiple purchase decisions from toilets to tubs to paint that make our two bathroom remodels functional and beautiful. With naivete, I picked out small mosaic tile that was complicated to install, but Josh was determined to get it perfect, much to my delight. I also added ceiling replacement mid-job, and he just rolled with the punches. More importantly, his expertise and skills come at competitive rates. I look forward to my next (bigger) project with him soon.

5.0 Mark H. Rochester, NY

Josh is professional, creative and very talented. Josh is a perfectionist and treated our kitchen and basement/bathroom remodel like it was his own. His pricing was more than fair with no hidden surprises. He transformed our house to what we wanted it to be and my wife and I couldn't be happier with the finished product. This was our first major home renovation and he helped us make decisions the entire process. We will certainly hire JL again and have already been recommending him to family and friends!!!!

5.0 Stevie A. Rochester, NY

It was great to work with Josh while making our dream bathroom a reality! He was so patient and knowledgeable through the whole process of brainstorming, planning, and carrying out the final project. He was reliable and flexible with our crazy schedule. We are so happy with the way our bathroom turned out and will definitely hire him again in the future!

5.0 Dan K. Brockport, NY

Very good people to work with. Conscientious, hardworking, and trustworthy. On any major project, a few mistakes will be made. They made a few, but were always willing, and in fact eager to correct any issues in an effort to get the job done right. Top notch workmanship, attention to detail, and good communications. I will definitely be working with them again in the future.

5.0 Daniel B. Rochester, NY

Absolutely the very best experience I have ever had working with a Contractor or any other professional for that matter. I would give Josh 10 ⭐️ If possible.

5.0 Denise E. Rochester, NY

They are wonderful. Materials for the job was picked up by them on Saturday morning and they completed the job that same day. They upgraded my kitchen and did some work in the bathroom. If you re looking for someone to get the job done timely, JL General Contracting is the way to go . Thank you Josh.
