Review by in Princeton, NJ
We hired John and his team to completely remodel our first floor, including the kitchen, den, family room, powder room, and entry hall. Going in we didn't have a plan, just a vision and some ideas, John took our ideas and Pinterest photos, working along with us and applying what we envisioned, then spent the time to put this all into a design app and create 3 dimensional renderings, all on his own. The we sat the second time he presented us with his concepts, along with a rough proposal of the cost. We loved the fact we were able to see this in a way that we could actually feel like we were standing in the space, that was extremely helpful in making our decisions. His references are impeccable and he's worked for many of our friends. Once the project started he was on site every day working alongside his team. He was always available to answer any questions concerns, and if a problem was found and there were a few as it was an older home, it was brought to our attention and addressed immediately. We communicated almost daily if not directly then thru texted progress photos. As to the quality of the work, IT WAS EXCELLENT, my impression was that he enjoyed his work, for most its just a job, it was more like he was working on his house, and he took great pride in what eh was doing for us. I think the Kudos really lit him up! I could go on, and there's not enough stars available. I give him TEN. GREAT JOB TO YOU AND THE TEAM!!!!!!!!

Review by Caitlin J. in New Milford, NJ
Project: Build a Garage
Moral of this story: If you value your money at all, do not hire NJM Construction. That is all you need to know, but keep reading for details. Let me tell you about NJM. We hired them in May 2018 to build a garage and breezeway and install new windows in our house. In the first month of working with them, the red flags started popping up like a color guard routine at a high school football game. First, after agreeing to one of his proposals, they emailed a contract to us and continuously called my husband and me the next day to get us to sign and more importantly, hand over the deposit check. We should have known then that something was off. But, we handed over the check and lucky for them, our bank screwed up, and they ended up with double the money we intended to pay him at that point. The next month of working with NJM consisted of nothing other than them insisting that the money never made it to their account. Coincidentally, all the money hit their account right before our next payment was due anyway, so they never returned any of it.Then it took 2.5 months for any paperwork to be submitted to our town. At that point we made some changes and small additions, fully anticipating a slight increase in cost. We will get back to that shortly. Fast forward to SIX months later when we finally have a permit to build our garage. I will not even get into the details of those six months except to say that they were full of delays, caused both by NJM and our town. They will blame everything on the town but if you put NJM s delays on one side of a see-saw and the town s delays on the other, the town would be launched into the air like an illegal roman candle set off on the 4th of July. By that point it was January and it was too cold to work. Finally, at the end of March, a start date was set. That is eleven months after we signed a contract. NJM figured this would be a good time to give us the official change orders for modifications decided on about seven months prior. Between our additions and unplanned drainage requirements by the town, the cost of the project had practically doubled. Yes, they went seven months without notifying us of this. We decided to just nix the deck completely so work could get started immediately. Then came the excuses. I am wrapping up other jobs. I need to order supplies before I can start. I am sick. If we had a nickel for every excuse we got from the start of this project, we probably could have paid for the entire thing with a giant barrel of nickels. And that brings us to where we are today, 14 months later. Our garage is beautiful. It is imaginary, but it is beautiful. And it gets better. When we decided to terminate the contract, we agreed that NJM would keep the money for the work that they did and return the rest. Ready for a laugh? They think that the day and a half window install and the permits we have are worth over $9000. BTW, we supplied the windows. So, $9000 for a garage permit and unfinished window installation. We tried to negotiate, and just to be done with NJM completely, we finally settled on $7500. Is their work worth that? Does it snow in the desert? But, getting rid of them is worth that.The worst part: they admittedly spent every time of our money, so we are still waiting for them to return it. As we suspected not long after we signed the contract, we feel that NJM used us a bank, spending our money while we paid the interest on it. And they still think they deserve thousands for the work that they have done. We have been working on setting all of our connections to this company on fire for months now. We feel that at no point was there any sign of sincere remorse. And that brings us back to the point. Do not hire.

Review by in Oakland, NJ
We hired NJM to replace a support beam for the living room/kitchen as well as bringing our back deck up to code. Despite some challenges with the recent snowstorms that disrupted work schedules, John was able to meet our tight timelines for completion including the town inspection process. He was very "hands on" throughout the process and always available via phone, email and texting to keep us up-to-date on the project progress. The quality of the work was excellent.

Review by in Morristown, NJ
We hired NJM to remodel our split level home. The quality of their work is flawless, John was always on site every day with his crew, everything was always neat and clean, a big plus since we lived in the house during the renovation. John had a plan of attack he shared with us every day so we always knew what to expect. We love the work they did, John is truly a craftsman and takes great pride in his work. Cudos John!!!!

We hired John to remodel the first floor of our home, this included the kitchen, guest bath, family room and living room. His input and vision really helped us realize our design. His attention to detail and the quality of his work is impressive. He was always available to answer our questions and address our concerns, as well as provided us with options to our own ideas. Most definitely will be using him again, will be recommending them to all of our friends and family!!!!

Review by in Dumont, NJ
We hired John to do a complete remodel of our 2500 sqf Ranch, we had a incomplete set of drawings and lots of ideas, and we were stressed that we really didn't understand much about construction and had even less vision. John brought even more ideas to the table, but he had vision and a lot of practical knowledge. On our first meeting he listened to our thoughts, and ideas, and in about an hour or so he had familiarized himself enough with our drawings and had a real good understanding of what we wanted, he was able to help us understand and visualize our possibilities. We interviewed 2 other contractors, but John's experience and his shared excitement and caring made him stand out from them so we hired him and his team. From the first day on the job he was very professional and neat, his team followed his lead, and they were always on time. He didn't use a lot of subs, most of the work was done by him and his team. The whole project took about 3 months, and he walked us through every idea, question, and concern every step of the way, In the end the house is beautiful from top to bottom, the quality of their work is just amazing. We highly recommend them!!!!!

John was very professional and knowledgeable, from the first visit at the house he brought an excitement to the table, showed us ideas that we never would have imagined, it was if he was getting ready to remodel his own home. He was on site every day guiding his team and was always hands on, he truly enjoys his work and it shows in the quality. We would absolutely hire them again and recommend them to all of our friends.

Review by in Maywood, NJ
NJM Construction completed a complete kitchen and bathroom remodel at our home. While we interviewed many contractors, NJM stood out with their professionalism, vision and dedication to perfection. John and his team did an amazing job delivering a beautiful, functional, professionally designed and implemented kitchen and bathroom. NJM was very accommodating with addressing increased scope of the project to repair/replace items that were found behind the walls. From carpentry, paint, dry wall, plumbing, electrical and design NJM covered all the bases and really made the renovation a smooth and enjoyable process. They were here everyday, working hard and keeping us informed throughout the project. It was truly a great experience working with NJM we highly recommend them and will hire them again for more projects.

Review by in Fair Lawn, NJ
John was very professional and was a pleasure to work with. He performed a complete remodel of our bathroom which included an expansion and reconfiguration. John had a vision for our unique bathroom layout and did a great job making our bathroom much more functional and visually appealing. John was always available to answer our many questions and always put extra thought and care into his work. We plan on using him again for future projects. Highly recommended!
