I am not sure where to even start in an effort to explain what a fantastic experience it was working with Jimmy Tereyla, Michael Grewe, and the rest of the team at JT Custom Builders. From first meeting to talk about ideas, get estimates, and figure out how to proceed, Jimmy was helpful, attentive, and is clearly a master at his craft.We decided to take a page out the Fixer Upper handbook, and provided Jimmy with some must-have's, a wish list, a few inspo pictures, and a budget. He and his team took it from there, and for the duration of the project, I had no idea what was happening behind the Zipwall.I would do it that way all over again in a heartbeat!Once the project was underway, Mike, John Nico, and all of the subs were top notch. Not only was their work spectacular, but they were extremely conscientious about working around our family; patient as it felt like it took a gazillion years to pick a floor stain; communicative to keep us updated on where things were; thorough as they cleaned up every.single.day; and I could go on....They went so far above and beyond, too!! From cleaning our (super gross) fridge, to hanging out a few extra minutes after they were finished when I was running late from an appointment, to trying to help fix the water heater when the fumes from the flooring triggered some sort of safety feature.And yesterday, after the big kitchen reveal, we celebrated with a little happy hour to break in the beautifully updated space in which I cannot wait to make more memories with my family and friends!Our youngest asked me this morning if "the guys would be here for breakfast," because truly, they've kind of become like family! Thankfully, we have some more projects we'd like to accomplish in the months to come, and I cannot WAIT to see what they come up with next.If you are looking to reno a kitchen, bathroom, basement... put on an addition... or even build a custom home (they do that, too!!) these ARE YOUR PEOPLE.Jimmy, Michael, John, and Amber... you all are simply the best. THANK you for far exceeding anything I could have ever imagined both in product AND process. You all are incredibly gifted at what you do, and we can't wait to get those bathrooms on the calendar!!Behind the masterpiece of our new kitchen is an INCREDIBLE company with INCREDIBLE people! We could not be happier!

Jimmy and his team just completed a kitchen remodel in our home. Could not be happier with their work. John, the head contractor was professional, always on time and aimed to please. His Can-Do attitude in regards to my numerous requests was great. Every day him and his assistant Mike didn't leave without first tidying up the work area. I will definitely use JT Custom Builders for any and all projects going forward as well as recommend to anyone looking for a great company. They actually exceeded my expectations, which isn't easy to do. My kitchen is gorgeous...thank you so much.

We HIGHLY recommend JT Builders.We contracted JT Builders to do several projects in our new-to-us but outdated home. We just finished up phase one of the work, largely comprised of our new kitchen and walk-in pantry, and we genuinely couldn’t be any happier with the results! Here are a few highlights from our experience to date:• Communication – expect to be impressed with how in the loop you are regarding status, pricing, options, expectations, etc.• Quality – these guys know their stuff and genuinely care about the finished result. You don’t have to fight about little things that come up along the way because they’re on top of a solution before you even realize there was a snag in the plan• Work ethic – I am seldom impressed with anyone’s work ethic and attention to detail, but Jimmy and his team continually impress. They delivered what we wanted and did so in a timely manner. Which brings me to:• Customer service – they really embody the customer-is-always-right mentality. We’re constantly throwing curve balls at them as we come up with new ideas, and they couldn’t be more accommodating, pleasant, and responsive.• Last but not least, you’re comfortable having them in your home. We’ve worked with a number of the guys on the team (if not all) and they’re all just good people that you’re very comfortable being in and out of your space all week long.We can’t wait to get started on our second phase of the work and are confident that we will be just as pleased as we were with the first phase.

I entrusted Jimmy and his crew to gut and renovate 3 full bathrooms in my home. I am SO glad I did!I have been renovating the entire home over the last two years and dealt with many subpar or downright terrible/dishonest contractors along the way. The experience with JT Custom Buikdets made me wish I’d found them sooner!Not only are my bathrooms absolutely gorgeous (you can see them on Instagram under #cantonbathrooms), but the crew also left my house so clean every day! They protected every space on the way to the workspace and swept before leaving daily. All the subcontractors I encountered were trustworthy and courteous. Jimmy himself is incredibly honest about any issues that come up and potential solutions and I did not get the dreadful feeling that he was squeezing every penny out of me whatsoever.The quality of the work is exactly what we discussed beforehand, and I would keep in mind that you get what you pay for - not just the finished product, but the experience, too - especially if you’re living in your home during a renovation!5 stars and I love my bathrooms every day!

We had a very unfortunate situation, with another contractor redoing our kitchen, that we had to fire midway through our project. We were left with a mess and a lot of frustration. Enter Jimmy and JT Custom Builders. He was the superhero we desperately needed. He listened to our needs and wants and offered experienced advice. He was understanding of our time constraints and was willing to go the extra mile to get the project done. He was courteous, timely and always cleaned up before he left for the day. The outcome of his work far exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend JT Custom Builders to anyone that needs a contractor.

We just had a complete kitchen remodel from JT Custom Builders. They were recommended through a friend...and Oh what a great recommendation! From the very start Jimmy and I seemed to be on the same page as to remodeling our kitchen. He was never pushy but had great ideas. We had talked to 4 companies before deciding on the best one for us. SO happy we chose them!
John, the head contractor...what can I say...he had what I would refer to as a "Can Do" attitude and response to my numerous requests and changes along the way. Never once did he make me feel that it was a bother. Instead it was always, "Sure, we can do that"...or "No Problem" and always with a smile. His attention to detail and craftmanship is "Top Notch" for sure...and I'm not the easiest person to please. He and his assistant Mike were there every day as promised and on time like clock work.
One thing that really impressed me was the way they prepped our home the 1st day, making sure to cover all the walked on areas as well as hanging plastic to keep the amount of dust to a minimum.
Every day before leaving, they would thoroughly clean up the work area.
In addition, all of the other contractors brought in...ie, plumber, electrician, tile guys "they were amazing" and etc...showed the same level of attention to detail and professionalism.
I will highly recommend JT Custom Builders to all of my friends and family and will surely use them again for our next project. The end result actually exceeded my expectations...which is not easy to do!
Thank you so much.
Very happy client.

Jimmy and his team did a great job with our project. They were timely, professional, excellent communicators, and finished ahead of schedule. Their drywall and painting lead Ignacio did a great job. Very happy with their work would trust them with any of my projects.

JT Custom Builders took a small job for us--replacing a roof. The roofing crew did a fabulous job. The gutter crew worked with us to solve a downspout puddle problem, and the fix is highly successful. Best of all is that the estimate was about half that of a national roofing company. Go local!

What was once a small, dated bathroom, has now become a luxurious oasis thanks to the JT Custom Builders team of Jimmy Tereyla, Nick, and co! Project #1 expanded and updated the master bathroom, while project #2 updated the upstairs hall bath. What a transformation on both!

Talented, communicative, responsible, responsive, and trustworthy are a few words that come to mind when describing JT Builders. Their work is thorough, clean, and timely. Without fail, they accommodated our every need and request.

We couldn’t be happier with our experience working with JT Custom Builders! If you are ever in need of a Maryland certified contractor, look no further than JT Builders!
