J & M Contracting Compliment - Skilled Work, Good Price, Fast Service

Review by 49772 on 2008-09-09
PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA -- We called John Messman, owner of J & M Contracting (insured & licensed) of West Mifflin, PA on Monday August 25th to quote a job building a (approx.) 4'x5' wall with a Pella window on our porch, paint our awning, and replace a garage entry door and jamb (the jamb had to be rebuilt by piece since the old one was set in concrete). Within 15 minutes John returned our call and about one hour later came by to look at and estimate the job. His quote was the best of 3.

On Thursday his son and an assistant commenced work. Friday they worked until 8pm to complete the job. Saturday morning his son John came and finished the last details. The work was precise with attention to detail. J and M was prompt and started and finished ahead of our expectations. The crew was polite, friendly, and professional.

We highly recommend J and M for home improvement and repair in the Pittsburgh area.

Good post. Contractors are hit and miss and it's nice to have a good reference to go with.

Great to hear, but it's always a good idea to ask for references BEFORE you hire a contractor - a list of the last five or six jobs they've completed over the last six months in your price range. Consider member services such as Angie's list - kinda gives you a thumbnail sketch of who might and might not be a good idea to hire.
