J & P Contractors

is proud of our Angie’s List Rating.

J and P contractors were very efficient. They were able to come out and do the work in a timely fashion. They did a very good job. You cannot even tell that there was damage to the garage. Everything was handled very professionally, and we are very satisfied with their work.

I am very happy with how Joe took care of all the project for us.
He removed our old framed garage (very bad state) and built a new one made of cinder block from scratch. I was able to see the progress on the project on a very frequent basis and what I really liked is that Joe was always looking out for the quality of the end product.

He didn’t look for shortcuts and what I really appreciated is that he was looking at details of things that you don’t even see once the project is finished, including work in the foundation of the garage and things hidden behind the walls or ceiling.

Overall I would highly recommend Joe and his team for construction projects if you are looking for a great end result.

Kieran expertly guided us through the remodel process while focusing on our vision of the outcome. He was always punctual and always maintained contact. We had a written agreement of costs which varied only when I added extras. The work went very smoothly and was cleaned up as much as possible at the end of each work day. All tradesmen were considerate and performed expertly. We cannot heap enough well earned praise on Kieran’s expertise. We are very satisfied with our kitchen and will contact him for any future remodeling projects as well as recommend him to friends.

We have nothing but positive things to say about J & P Contractors. Joe and his team were fantastic to work with. They were very professional, extremely respectful and conscientious in our home. We are a family of four with two small children under 5 and had planned to remain in the home during the construction. It was a rocky four months for us as a family, but we knew it would be worth the end result and it absolutely was! Joe did his best to keep our living space closed off from the mess and they were very respectul of our personal space and considerate of the fact that we had young children.

Joe was true to his word from the very beginning. He stuck to the timeline the best he could. There were absolutely no delays on the project on his part. (We did have some delays due to city issues with Park Ridge and some hiccups getting our countertops, but all of those things were out of his control). He did his best to keep the project moving along.

Most of his subcontractors were top-notch as well. They were most definitely professionals within their trade; not just Jack-of-All-Trades types of people.

We are planning on doing more work with J&P Contractors on the existing structure in the near future. We’d highly recommend J & P Contractors to anyone planning a major renovation or construction project on their home.

Joe Lyons is truly a man of his word. He was upfront about all the costs and scope of the work to be done. He was extremely helpful in directing us in all the aspects of this project. No money was asked for until that part of the work was complete. He was easy and fair to deal with, and stands behind his work. The work was done in an unbelievably short time. All my neighbors are impressed the the speed, quality and beauty of the job done. It is refreshing to come across such a upfront, straight forward and honest businessman.

He was excellent and affordable. He came out right away. A very helpful man. He cleaned up his mess. I can not say anything about disliking him. He came and did the job, did not bs around, and he was great. I would recommend him to anyone, highly recommend him. His work is good and solid. I know a wood butcher when I see one and he is far from it. He ripped the ceiling down and when he was done there was not a piece of dust on anything.

I would highly recommend Joe and his team to anyone. They are very accomplished and able to handle the oddities that come up when installing new things in an old, crooked building. I know the guts of it all were done well and the finishes are impeccible.  The results are impressive – and my standards are high.

I also appreciate that Joe suggested some changes that were much less expensive and did not compromise the design in anyway. I also appreciate that he (very kindly) disagreed with some of our choices and pointed out why. Sometimes we took his suggestions, and for the few that we didn’t, he happily did it the way we asked.

Joe and his team were all very considerate that we were in the building while they did the work. They showed up when they said they would.
I’ve never worked with anyone better than Joe!

What can I say? I almost don’t want to submit this review for fear that my newly-discovered rock star contractor may become too popular and forget the little people! Simply put, Joe Lyons of J&P Contractors has an absolute talent for general contracting.

I have had A LOT of work done on my house (it was built in 1902) and have never had as positive an experience as I did with J&P. I do a fair amount of home improvement projects myself, have very high standards, and can say without hesitation that the quality of the work done was outstanding. Joe and his team completed a large amount of work for an incredibly fair price and remained on budget. Joe never made me feel like an imposition when discussing concerns; never made me feel high-maintenance even though I’m sure I was at some point! All big projects have issues that arise, and mine were resolved quickly and calmly. Joe was inexhaustibly cheerful and positive throughout the entire job, and I doubt there are other contractors who would be so dedicated to creating such a safe and comfortable space for my family. I was amazed at how he remembered the tiniest of details discussed at our very first meeting.

I am very grateful to have found THE contractor for my future projects and have no intention of bidding out another one again. The ultimate compliment–I did not hesitate to recommend J&P to very close friends even though I have avoided doing so in the past. I was sad to see J&P leave my home and can’t wait until my next project!

Joe and his team were fantastic to work with!

I was doing a full remodel of my condo kitchen including door and window replacement. Joe confirmed my layout dimensions, did all the demo, installed the cabinets including all trim work, ran gas and plumbing, installed backsplash tile, re-framed and installed window and exterior door including drywall. I’m in a 100+ building, so you never know what you are going to find and of course, nothing is level or flush. Joe worked around all that and I ended up with a kitchen I love. I had a few delays in deliveries (my fault), and it was no problem to re-schedule or adjust Joe’s team’s timeline. Even with all the delays/changes, Joe came in on budget.

Great team and completely professional, which is reassuring when they have your house keys for 3 weeks! I would absolutely recommend them and plan on using them again in our building.

Joe & his crew were fantastic. They kept us in the loop during the entire project, and Joe always made sure that we knew what time to expect them. Joe and his team were always on time, and completed the project quickly. Our baths look wonderful – we are so pleased! I highly recommend J & P.

The tile looks great and they even added a small row of tile on the wall above the floor tile to make the bathrooms have a nice clean look. We had not considered doing that when we originally told Joe what we were looking for and his suggestion really made the bathrooms look great.

A terrific experience. J and P was on time, professional and right on budget. Could not ask for a better contractor. It is a wonderful living space for my family and me.
