Dear Joe,
Thank you for the wonderful and timely job you did on the new lighting. (If nothing else it forced us to change that nasty green color in the kitchen to something more livable!!!!) In all seriousness, we will enjoy the new "light" for a long time, I'm sure. It's wonderful to look down the halls and in the bathroom and actually see.

We especially appreciate your honesty. We would never have known you didn't use all the material you estimated in installing the tube lighting if you hadn't told us and deducted the cost. That says a lot about you and your overall integrity. Thanks for being that kind of guy. Should we ever get the chance we will certainly recommend you! Thank you so much. We wish you and yours the best.

Very Sincerely,
Bruce and Lovina Josslin

“If you’re looking for an honest, highly skilled, and professional contractor, you should call Joe Kelley.

We were referred to Joe while planning a kitchen remodel. Having worked with three other contractors for other remodeling projects, Joe Kelley was a breath of fresh air. First, Joe is respectful of his client’s ideas, time, and budget. He will provide you with a candid, honest, professional opinion as well as suggestions to get you to where you want to be with your project. While other contractors will “work” their clients with flash and intimidation, Joe is an advocate for his clients and will sit down to truly listen and discuss your plans and provide you with insights and ideas on how to make things work.

When we decided to build a pool house/game room, we spoke to three contractors about the job. Joe impressed us once again by going above and beyond the others by thoroughly researching what the City would allow in terms of setbacks, etc. There was no doubt in our minds that he would do a great job for us again on this project. What could have been a simple 495 square foot box, Joe created a game room that continuously gets rave reviews. He is a highly skilled craftsman and architect who cares about the details of the finished project.

I also found Joe to be ideal at delivering the “bad news” that can often come up during a remodeling project, i.e. termites or the need to replace ancient plumbing. His style and demeanor is respectful and factual. Ultimately, Joe becomes that friendly face at your kitchen door each morning. He shows up as scheduled, supervises his staff regularly, and ensures that the job site is always picked up and safe. His crew is efficient, respectful, and hardworking.

For future projects, I wouldn’t blink an eye before calling Joe Kelley. I’d hire him in a heartbeat and would encourage others to do the same!”

This was my first experience at building a home, so I had lots of questions. Joe Kelley was very helpful, informative and knowledgeable when it came to answering all my questions. The work was done in a professional and timely manner. Joe Kelley was very open minded to my ideas and changes and would let me know the pros and cons to my thoughts. I am very happy with my home!!

We have had the pleasure of working directly with Joe in the construction of our Home. We found Joe to be very helpful, not only in the building of our home but in the correction of our original drawing/plans. Building a home we've heard was very stressful and confusing, but we did not experience this with Joe. We found him to be cooperative, flexible, offered us choices and was easy to work with. We would highly recommend Joe and his services to anyone who has plans to start a home or doing remodels.

We met Joe in April 2005 when we were expecting our second baby. We were interested in adding 2 bedroom's and a jack & jill style bathroom. We called a few numbers out of the phone book and Joe Kelley of JBK Construction was the most responsive. At the same time we called the people that built our home for a referral and were pleased to find out that they said we should talk to Joe. We were very hesitant about doing construction because of horror stories we had heard but we needed a larger home. From the beginning Joe was very easy to work with. We were concerned that there may be some "hidden costs" that would add up to a lot more than we were quoted but that did not happen. Joe did everything for us, from beginning to end. He made some suggestions to us but also listened to what we had in mind. We landed up also adding a 900 square foot shop attached to our garage in addition to the bedroom's and bathroom.

Construction was a little delayed due to extra rain but Joe knew our baby was coming and was very concerned about how to make it easiest on us and the new baby. Joe was at our home almost every day giving us the status on what was going on, status on which sub-contractors were coming, etc. It was obvious he did not want to cut any corners but he wanted to get everything done as quick as possible. We had a 2nd birthday party planned for our daughter and Joe made extra effort to make sure we were as close to completion as possible. He was actually at our home the Saturday morning of the party waiting to make sure the carpet got installed before the party started. We had several friends and family members comment on how impressed they were with our contractor.

We would strongly recommend Joe and JBK Construction to anyone that is looking for a contractor, and we would not call anyone but him if we thought of doing any other construction at our home.

We purchased our home knowing that we had a significant amount of remodeling to do to make it what we wanted it to be. We remodeled the kitchen, both bathrooms, extended the master bedroom and put new flooring throughout the house. We interviewed three contractors and Joe Kelley was the one that we selected and we're glad that we did. Remodeling is difficult, time consuming and expensive. You need a contractor that you can trust and Joe is that guy. The next time we need work done, Joe will be the person that we call.
