What recent clients say about their experience with J. Schwartz, LLC Remodeling & Fine Home Building

I guess from the very beginning I was a skeptic. Oh, I didn’t doubt that J. Schwartz LLC could deliver a beautiful room. But I wasn’t convinced that you could really deliver a room that looked like it had always been there, that looked as old as the rest of the house, and that fit in seamlessly. I’ve seen enough additions in other old houses, and they always looked like “additions”. When I saw new windows, new doors, and new floors coming in, I thought we’d do the best we could to blend in the new with the old. But I’ve seen the room; now I’m a believer! I am amazed at how well the new room flows into the rest of the house, like it’s always been here. The replication of the wood trim, the “old brick” fire place and built-ins, the faux-grain door–it truly feels like a 1918 bungalow room. Even using the old doors to the closet and powder room was the perfect touch. We had a couple over the other night, and the old doors fooled them into thinking that area was part of the old house. Especially at night with softer lighting, the room feels old. I think it will take an expert eye to ever detect that it wasn’t part of the original house. I’m a skeptic no longer.

N. Soisson, West Lawn, PA

All – just wanted to say thank you for everything and a very special thank you for today’s surprise of planting flowers…Matt, it was so nice and thoughtful and we can’t thank you enough. Honestly, people don’t believe us when we say how awesome this experience has been and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with all of you. We are really sad the project has drawn to a close but we look forward to resuming renovations down the line. In the meantime, please feel free to use me as a reference. Many neighbors have inquired about your work and we have passed along your information. I hope they decide to reach out to you because your work is exceptional and it has been such a pleasure working with you. Again, thank you so much

We have survived several renovations and additions. This time, with J.Schwartz Construction, we actually enjoyed the process! Joe’s team is professional, courteous, respectful of our home (and our dogs!) and very talented. They care about the project and have integrity…not something one always finds in these situations. Every phone call and email was responded to quickly and courteously and what ever it might have been about was immediately taken care of…also a rarity. The customer webpage is terrific! It allowed us to stay updated on the project, gave us before, during and after photos, kept track of our costs and any change orders and is an easy and efficient means of communication. Follow up after completion of the addition, even with issues unrelated to the work done by J. Schwartz Construction, also were immediately addressed and we are grateful for that as well. Overall, a wonderful experience! How many times does one hear that said about having work done on their homes? Joe is a great guy and leads a great team. We would recommend him without hesitation and with lots of enthusiasm to anyone looking for a company that really delivers what it promises. We could not be any happier with our new addition. Thank you Joe!!

J. Schwartz provides quality workmanship, fair pricing, and excellent service. We knew in advance each day what was to be done and who would be in the house. This was excellent communication. The finished product exceeded our expectations…we love it!

Working with Joe and his crew is always enjoyable. They are good communicators who take the necessary time to answer questions and offer solutions. Their dependability and organization when it comes to scheduling is uncommon in this field. They are more than qualified to handle projects of all sizes and scopes and I never hesitate to refer clients, and friends, to them…

Jessica Berry, Elements Design, Interior Design Firm in Ardmore, PA

…the quality of work exceeded all of our expectations. We certainly will recommend J. Schwartz LLC to our friends and we will use them again very definitely.

Debby Merker, Homeowner in Haverford, PA

Just wanted to reiterate my impression of the construction and site conditions at the Gilliland project (new home). I am so impressed by both the quality of the framing and the cleanliness of the site in general. Obviously your attention on this job is the reason for such a noticeable degree of organization and quality control. We are proud to be associated with J. Schwartz LLC…

Chris Caniglia, All Phase Electric Co.

…Joe found that we were faced with an unforeseeable serious problem with soil and foundation issues during the construction of our addition that if covered up or handled improperly would have resulted in serious structural issues or even catastrophe. I was always comfortable with J. Schwartz LLC on the project because I knew the issues were being handled correctly, competently and without hesitation. The finished product is not only rock solid, it is also absolutely beautiful…

E. Malady, Homeowner in Elwyn, PA

Joe and his team continues to impress me through various projects. Their meticulous attention to detail, realistic / timely scheduling and last but not least quality finish work is top notch! I look forward to working with joe in the future and watching dreams / ideas become reality!

On time, on budget, quality work and workmanship. They have done a gut remodel of our kitchen and of our master bathroom with special needs requirements.always responsive, always contactable and available. Great people to work with, will use them again.

Alfred Yudes

I’m not one to usually write reviews but thought this one was well deserved to take the time. We could not be happier with Joe and everyone at J Schwartz. We had an old solarium that was re-done into a full studded-out room. From the beginning, Joe and the crew were punctual, professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Joe carefully listened to everything we had to say, guided us in decisions, and gave us a complete detailed quote. The job ran smoothly, on time, and on budget; there were no surprises. The crew was always respectful of our home, being careful as they worked and cleaned up daily. Even the inspector who came complimented on the good job being done. We are extremely pleased with the results, we love our new room. Everyone who comes over compliments us on it, and what really pleases us, they say it looks like the room was always part of the house. We highly recommend J. Schwartz, LLC Remodeling & Fine Homebuilding for any renovation/job you may have.

Joe and I ended up working together on a very difficult renovation and restoration project. Joe has consistently been responsive and easy going through the many hurdles we've had to cross. His willingness to please the client makes this difficult job much easier. His goal of a quality product over cheap and quick is refreshing and hopefully leads us to future collaborations

J. Schwartz designed and built a beautiful addition for my family. It included a first floor and kitchen renovation, and we could not be happier with the process and the outcome. We will be recommending them to friends and family.

Jon Longo

If you want a contractor who is on budget, on schedule and cost conscious, then choose Joe Schwartz. Joe and his team renovated our kitchen, living room and dining room. The workmanship was excellent and any changes we made to the original plan were addressed without hassle. We love our new living space. Thank you Joe for a job well done

oe was recommended by a trusted painting contractor/friend. Three bedroom three bathroom ranch. With 50's 'modern kitchen and baths became 2015 retirement - age in place oasis. I found him to be straightforward, on time for appointments with me, and helpful in 'hearing' my needs as I downsized my living area. His workers are conscientious, and travel the extra mile to please. I've already recommended him to a satisfied friend.

I have had the opportunity of collaborating with J.Schwartz on dozens of projects over the past ten years. We consistently choose to recommend J.Schwartz to our clients simply because I can be confident of the results. Joe Schwartz is able to coordinate the many trades involved in a construction project and in doing so, bring our designs to fruition. An important trait of Joe Schwartz is his ability to anticipate potential construction issues before they become issues. As is often the case in a renovation project, there is a great potential for hidden conditions to create visible problems. Joe can present a series of viable solutions for consideration by the owner and the architect. This is an extremely important asset, especially in a time-sensitive renovation project. Simply stated, his intimate involvement in each project saves the homeowner time and money. At the end of the day, the homeowner receives a beautiful project and Joe will likely be recognized with a construction award.

Joseph Augustine, Architect

I have had the opportunity to work with J. Schwartz, LLC on numerous projects over the past several years. Joe and his crew are professional, timely, and on budget. They are able to make changes on a dime when required. All projects have maintained clean work environments and crew members are always respectful of clients and their individual living situations.

Joe and I have worked on many whole house renovations over the past years. Joe manages the client's expectations and needs as well as my specifications as the designer. He is always respectful of design suggestions and is open to complete collaboration. I look forward to many more outstanding design build projects with Joe and his crew. I would highly recommend J. Schwartz, LLC for any projects a homeowner might be considering.

We originally contacted three contractors and were very happy when we met with Joe. Before J. Schwartz even gave their proposal, Joe pointed out a number of structural and heating issues that no one else had even recognized. We hired him because he is professional, knowledgeable and organized.

Our project consisted of a badly neglected master bathroom renovation, and a renovation of the master bedroom. We moved some interior walls to make the bed and bath both larger by taking over an unused bedroom and closet. His teams of workers are all very professional, and friendly. The work is absolutely beautiful, and my husband and I could not be happier. We have even called J. Schwartz with completely unrelated issues in our home that needed attention, and they came right over and took care of us.

Debra M

J.Schwartz and crew took my houzz inspired ideas and made them even better. We had a whole house renovation, which would have been daunting without J Schwartz. They created pieces that guests to the house comment about.

They definitely went above and beyond, especially on projects that I needed a little "hand holding". Most importantly, they made sure I was happy with the work long after they finished.

We had a whole house makeover following a fire. We could rely heavily on Joe Schwartz for guiding us through the many decisions about structure, design and construction. He works with a great collection of contractors and trades. Joe is very patient with his clients and goes the extra mile to make sure you are completely satisfied. I enthusiastically recommend Joe Schwartz to anyone I know or care about that plans to undertake a home renovation.
