When you arrive at the offices of J. Demaree Construction, you’ll see a sign on the wall of Jay’s office that reads,  “Our #1 goal is to provide customer satisfaction.  We provide quality craftsmanship and quality materials to do the job right the first time!”

Besides the construction division, J. Demaree Construction recently introduced their new Drywall, Stucco and Plaster Division. “Plaster installation is a dying art,” said Jay. “So, to have that skill within the community to install plaster is a benefit. It is rare to find skilled trades people with the skill to install it.”

“We feel like having a physical place of business gives us solidarity in the community,” says Jay. “Many contractors work out of their homes, but having someone available to answer the phone and talk to customers is a big deal deal to us. We strive to offer personal service.”

Jay has 25 years of experience in the construction business and started his company in 2012. He employs between 8-12 local skilled trades people depending upon the time of year. In fact he emphasizes purchasing locally. “We use local vendors whenever we can,” he said. “We use local architects, local land surveyors, local interior designers. We have developed good relationships with our local vendors and that results in quality workmanship for our customers. ”
