TESTIMONIALS
  • Architect & Homeowner

    I had the pleasure of working with Jon Walsh of J Walsh Construction Inc during the major renovation of my home in 2007 & 2008. I was also the Architect for the project which is my primary residence. The renovation project was essentially a teardown of an existing 1,100 square foot single story home and the rebuilding of a 2,600 square foot two story home with a rooftop deck. Jon was very accommodating and understanding of the process I wanted to follow for the construction of my home. He reviewed and understood the plans and made every effort to minimize my unnecessary involvement in construction-related issues. He was excellent at alerting me when decisions needed to be made concerning structural or aesthetic concerns with the project. He understands not only the foundation and structural rough framing of a project but also how finishes are applied and how they are affected by decisions made in those early stages. It was  refreshing to know that Jon was at the project site thinking about tasks further down the road than the current week’s work. He was an honest, pleasant, and even-tempered person to work with which is rare in the custom home construction industry. It was easy to see the respect his employees had for him and his knowledge of construction, workflow and client maintenance. I have recommended Jon on several projects since my home was completed and will continue to do so.

  • Quality Craftsmanship and Attention to Detail

    I was extremely pleased when J Walsh Construction took on the total overhaul of my 1910 Mission Hills Historic home as I could see from Jon Walsh and his team’s previous work that they understood and respected the classic Craftsman ideal. Ultimately, I am also tremendously grateful for Jon’s sense of design and fantastic communication skills. Over the course of the project, Jon took the time to educate me about each stage of the remodel and brought many vital suggestions and solutions to problems that arose—always presenting multiple options and giving me the time to make an informed decision.k9YJeBZvsv0hDmj6ELVJ8I6BwkDUaiUmD9TDyGrHXYc

    This project expanded our 2 bedroom 1 bath, single story home with a tiny early-1900’s kitchen into a 3 bedroom 2 . bath with playroom and entertaining dining/kitchen. We doubled our livable space, performed a complete interior remodel and replaced all plumbing, wiring and mechanical infrastructure. The end product is a truly gorgeous home that stayed faithful to the original home’s sensibility and simple beauty but also suits our modern family’s lifestyle. Our “new” old home is everything we had hoped for—the historic status preserved, the new design in harmony with the original home, the added space accommodating room for kids and dinner parties, and the craftsmanship and detail of the highest quality. I recommend J Walsh Construction with the utmost enthusiasm.

  • Exceptional Every Step of the Way

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, your staff and hard-working crew for a job well done! There are time when things just click and this was one of them.

    You and your team were exceptional every step of the way, before, during and after. Neighbors reporting back, as they often do, had nothing but positive things to say.

    What made this project challenging was the long-distance nature, which never really seemed to cause much strife on either side.

    … I look forward to working with J Walsh Construction in the future!

  • Performance with Integrity

    I have worked with Jon on several of my home upgrade projects over the past few years and always found him to be extremely reliable, cost conscious and very focused on the quality of workmanship.  In all of our dealings,  Jon has always performed with the top level of integrity.   I could not offer a higher level of recommendation.

  • Happy Homeowners

    Jon’s and his team’s work were great. He did a large remodel of the front half of our house including a new bathroom, new windows, new framing and replacing much of our original 1920’s plumbing and wiring. We requested multiple bids and Jon’s provided us with the most value.Because our house is old, we knew there would be surprises. Jon was always honest and forthright about any problems uncovered as the project went along. He always gave us a wide range of options from which to choose when suggesting solutions. We have recommended Jon to our friends and neighbors, and we look forward to having him help us with future projects. Most importantly, our friends and family always compliment the fine craftsmanship of our house especially our new bathroom and custom, craftsman-inspired built-in cabinets Jon built for us.

  • Satisfied return client

    October 13, 2011 019I have had the pleasure of working with Jon Walsh on 3 large remodels, in the past 2 yrs. I met Jon when he stopped off at one my projects. I decided to give him a shot at some siding on this particular job. Jon’s knowledge of all aspects of construction truly impressed me. Since then I have worked with him on all of my jobs. His work is always up to the quality & expectations of my high end clientele in Point Loma area. Jon is a man of his word, and very fair with pricing. I highly recommend him for any size project.
