Joe and his crew did an amazing job on my screened in porch! They were all friendly, polite, professional, and went above and beyond to make my porch exactly how I wanted it. Joe is a straightforward and honest guy. His quote was very reasonable, and his contract clearly stated what work he was going to do and how much I would pay for each service. I liked that Joe was in constant communication about when the work was going to be done, so I always knew what to expect. He made some excellent suggestions for the porch, and it came out beautifully. Everyone who sees my new porch loves it and agrees that I had a great contractor! If you are looking for a contractor who does high quality work, has great customer service, and will give you a good price, call Joe. I will definitely call Joe to do other projects in the future!! Joe and his crew were great to work with, and I highly recommend J. Passero Home Services.

This is my third major project (previous desk/screened porch, slate patio) with Joe. That should tell you all you need to know but I'll continue... Perhaps the greatest thing about Joe is his pride in the workmanship of his team. If his name is associated with a project, it's got to be up to pretty high standards - if not, he'll fix it until it is and you are happy with the result. Inevitably in any major project you're going to be surprised (huh, didn't know that drain pipe was behind that drywall, tile company that you purchased floor tile from 3 yrs ago gave you one wrong box of tile that you didn't notice and it had to be replaced (delaying the project), sink manufacturing defects on sink fixtures that YOU ordered (not Joe) that further delayed the project...) Joe took all of these surprises (none his fault) in stride and rescheduled his team as required to get the project complete. When some minor issues with workmanship (some plumbing/painting rework) did occur, Joe ensured the work was corrected to his and my satisfaction. Can't ask for better than that in any contractor. We're not done with all the projects around the house yet and Joe will remain my "go to" guy. Highly recommended.

Joe is a very straightforward, down-to-earth guy to work with. He got a fairly complicated job done efficiently, including a couple of mid-course changes I requested. I'm happy to recommend him and his crew.

Joe did an absolutely beautiful job adding a screened porch and stone patio onto our house. He was in regular communication about the timeline and next steps and followed through on the dates he set. I also really appreciated that, of all the people who provided quotes for the project, he was the only one who took the time to sit down to discuss and put together a detailed proposal-- not just a bottom-line number and quick dimensions, but an explanation of what exactly the porch would look like, what features it would have, what the payment schedule would be like, etc. I felt like I knew from our first meeting what the finished product would look like, and he more than delivered. All of the foregoing is even before getting into the quality of the work itself, which is stellar. I had received some quotes from people who said they could do the project for less, but I wasn't confident that the finished product would be as polished and professional as what Joe indicated he and his team could do. And they did. We're absolutely thrilled with the result and will be enjoying the porch and patio for years to come.

Joe took on the project to redo is a driveway from a crumbling asphalt to concrete. The work was subcontracted and he did a good job of describing how the work was done. In the end, he did little supervision of their work, and I was communicating some key changes in the contour of the driveway for aesthetics. While the driveway turned out nice, the grading was such that rain now runs into my garage. Joe was contacted about this issue and never returned our call to address it. we had to find a mitigation to address the defect. needless to say, I am very upset and caution those who'll use him in the future.

Joe and his team does great work and communicates very well. He is a down to earth person that is great to work with. Very satisfied with our new garage and highly recommend him.

If you want a guy to go above and beyond to beat your expectations, hire Joe. I can't say enough good things about this guy. From the start - prior to signing a contract with him - he took the initiative to go down to the permit office to discuss my potential garage plans to alleviate my stress on whether I needed a variance. The contract drafting process was fluid - he listened and accepted most, if not all, of my changes and upgrades - with minimal cost impact. He walked and talked me through the entire building process, addressing my questions and/or changes all throughout the way. Joe even was taking care of business while he was away on a family vacation. He always had a smile on his face and a can-do attitude. Stand-up guy. Couldn't have asked for a better builder! My garage is AWESOME!

Joe completed the job within the time frame on the contract. Addressed all of my concerns and did a fantastic job. My new composite deck and new fence look fantastic.

I'm a serious DIYer myself and I'm pretty picky. Was going to do the screened in porch project myself but decided to hire Joe based on reviews and a neighbor's recommendation. Absolutely made the right call! Couldn't be happier with the completed project, or the customer service. We had 41 folks at the house for Thanksgiving this year and the collective reaction was simply "Wow!" Highly recommended.
