Review by Christopher H. in Cleveland, OH
Five years ago this company installed a composite deck for me. They claimed it was TREX product. It was not. They got it from Home Depot. They claimed they knew how to install it. They did not. Boards were installed too close together and they warped within months. JR came back the following spring to try to fix it. As the picture show, this was a complete failure. Pooling water, warped and wavy boards make this project a complete failure. Total incompetency!

Review by Kyle C. in Strongsville, OH
After a good initial meeting, it was all downhill from there. While remodeling our first bathroom multiple things were installed improperly. The bathtub, tile, exhaust fan all had to be redone. While trying to shove a supply duct between two joists they managed to bust a hole and knock down a light in our kitchen ceiling. Then they were going to just put the light back up without patching the huge hole in our ceiling. Luckily I was home at the time and caught this. The gentleman that butchered our first bathroom was taken off the job. We should not have allowed them to continue with our master bathroom. They had a new gentleman work on our master which seemed to be working better...that was until they finished our bathroom and my wife was taking shower one week later. I was in the kitchen below and water started pouring through our ceiling. They forgot to seal our shower floor properly! We obviously did not use them on our kitchen remodel. While working on my kitchen remodel we found that they incorrectly pitched the drain pipe in our master shower and switched the hot and cold water lines. We found multiple other issues including electrical problems that were fire hazards. I spent hundreds of dollars fixing their problems and Jeremy the owner was supposed to send us a check to pay for their mistakes...5 months later I still do not have a check. I would like to warn anyone out there not to use this company. We have spent much more money than we ever imagined trying to fix their problems.

Based on our experience with JM Build II cannot in good conscious [unprofessionalism, incompetence and questionable ethics. They caused extensive damage to our house: pouring grout down our brand new Masterbath and utility drains resulting in a solid cement blockage that took hiring Roto Rooter (4 hours of drilling) and costing $400 (we had to pay, they took it off our bill); worker turning water on when masterbath faucets open and not connected to drains resulting in water pouring through our family room ceiling and staining our couches (they did not offer or pay for cleaning of couches and who knows what damage to the floor under cabinets.) We also experienced incompetence in remedial construction such as hanging the stove direct vent 4 inches too low resulting in tile replacement; using tile grout as caulk which is cracking, not sealing shower tile and grout discoloring. No permits were pulled and there is electrical work that is not up to code such as loose wiring hanging from my basement ceiling and exposed junction box in my kitchen cabinet. These are just SOME of the incompetences, there are too many to list. I question their ethics as they breached our contract twice; the owner, Jeremy Salupo, called bullying and demanding payment without notice (95% of the job was paid and the bathroom was still not functional) and when I questioned the payment he pulled the worker. Contract states 24 hrs. written notice for payment. Second breach was they pulled original Project Manager was pull from our job 3/4 into the job (contract stated they will not pull men from our job to go to another which attracted us to JM in the first place) this is when everything started to fall apart. I have requested they come and make the repairs and have yet to be told when. What I haven't mentioned yet is the amount of stress and anxiety this company caused myself and my husband. We are 6 months out from the job and still finding problems. Please do not put yourself through this anguish.

Review by in Beachwood, OH
My wife and I had a pleasant and professional first meeting with JM. This relieved us as this was different than other quotes. We were given a tidy 6 week schedule for work. That was basically the last time things went according to plan. After the first week, what we were told rarely took place. Our home was often left a mess. We had workers use our personal groceries as if it were a convenience store. We constantly had to check and double check work and re-ask for simple tasks to be completed. We lost power in 50% of our house for 6 weeks and their team could not figure out the issue, suggesting a total rewire until I had an outside electrician come in, who fixed the issue in a matter of hours. Plumbing work has lead to leaks on multiple occasions. There were multiple days when we would have one or two worker show up for 2-3 hours and leave. I am still cleaning up paint off of my floors in several rooms. Although JM usually responded to our requests, it was often after the 2nd, 3rd time leaving us feeling like they didnt care. They ran out of material and lost items that we purchased delaying the project even more. The final product took 15 weeks. I am writing this review 2 weeks after they have left because my house is now gushing water AGAIN from a shower that they installed. I chalked a lot of what happened up along the way to the nature of renovation, but this goes far beyond unexpected hiccups. I already am concerned about what my house will look like 6 months from now if we are having issues less than 2 weeks after they have packed up. **addition to review*** 12/20/18 Although I was not at all satisfied with the process for much of the project, JM did come back to completely rectify all of the issues that my wife and I had. They came back until we were both satisfied and stayed within the original terms of the contract and as a good will gesture, fixed an issue that was not their doing. I am appreciative of that and we are very satisfied with the final result.

Review by in Hudson, OH
I used Jm Design to first replace windows in a sunroom. After removing the old windows the company found that our house had a water problem that would involve more work than anticipated. The owner of the company and his employees worked with us to get a project that would fit into our new budget and repair all water damage. We communicated what we wanted done or went with their suggestions in other areas. The key to reoair with any company is to be specific about what you want in the way of product and finished work. We were pleased with the final project as we evaluated the work on the last day. Thanks, JM Design
