John and his company did a fantastic job on our laminate flooring. Asked him for a turn-key installation and everything from the baseboard and carpet removal, to the leveling and floor prep, to the floor installation and touch ups. Everything was done with complete professionalism, at a fair price, and within schedule. He even had to make some custom transitions and adjustments to other baseboards because of pre-existing issues in our home. John is very easy to work with and laid everything out in the beginning, so no surprises. I highly recommend J&R Construction and personally will not use anyone else. Can’t wait for our next project.

What an awesome job! John redid our deck railing and it turned out great. He was incredibly helpful when he came out to listen to our ideas and give us an estimate. John and his team were also very considerate as we had them redo our railing with a newborn in the house. We will definitely be using J&R Construction again when we add on a pergola to our deck.

John recently painted our home both upstairs and downstairs and replaced the base moldings along with sheet rock and texture repairs. This project was the third John has done for us, after each project I always tell John that I'll call you for the next one. We are relieved to have found someone local that can do it all.

John has completed two projects on our home and we are now are going to use him for our inside painting project.

I appreciated how helpful John was with me over the phone when I called to ask for an estimate on drywall replacement due to a leak that caused mold in our ceiling. It was convenient for me to be able to send him pictures over email and I felt like he gave me a fair quote, unlike the ones from other contractors. His crew was able to get the work done quickly and they left the area clean after it was completed. Overall, I was impressed with the company and I definitely plan to use them again if I ever need any other projects done around the house.

Enlisted John to help us with our outdoor deck that took some heavy damage from the April 2015 hail storm. From the quote to completion I could not have been happier. John showed up on time and offered us a very fair quote on our deck. He explained what he would be doing in good detail and gave us a time frame we could expect. I observed John's work habits and this man works his tail off. His attention to detail is second to none. Our deck was in bad shape from the hail but also from normal weathering. He did everything he could to keep costs low. John flipped boards over, replaced those that needed to be replaced, and sanded everything down to where we can walk barefoot! He got a bunch of stain samples on one of the old deck boards so we could make a good pick. Mileage and time out of his day that he didn't really need to do. He completed the job in the time frame he promised, minus days he couldn't work because of the rain. As good as John is, he can't control the weather. On occasion his wife, Rosario, came out to assist John in his job to help complete the job quicker. Two really great people to work with, trustworthy, hard working, and very professional. If you are tired of shady contractors and shady work, JandR construction is the way to go. A+ all around. Our hail ridden 10+ year old deck looks new again! Our friends and family have all commented on how nice it looks. John and Rosario will be our go to for future home repairs. Thanks guys!

John and his team are the ones you WANT remodeling your house or doing your home improvement projects. I have used him on my last two projects and will definitely be bringing him back for my future projects I have planned. I have an older house that has been in need some much needed TLC for some time now. I put it all off for years because it is difficult to find a good honest contractor these days that do a quality job, complete the job on time and do everything exactly the way agreed upon and quoted. I have had a few bad experiences in the past with “other” contractors taking much longer than promised to complete a job, leaving the place a mess every day with tool laying all over, not showing up on time with no communication and the list goes on. I am happy to know now that those days are over for me. John is the only guy I will be calling in the future. The first time I called him to come by and give me a quote on rebuilding and extending 2 decks and replacing my falling down 20+ year old wooden fence, he showed up two day later as promised on time. We walked the projects and I explained what I wanted done. He took all of his measurements and discussed with me the material options and ball park price differences. Once we agreed on everything, he said he would e-mail me a quote within a couple of days. Two day later I received his quote. Everything was listed out that we discussed and the price was very reasonable in my opinion. I called him back and scheduled a start date. John and his crew showed up on time at 8:00am and got right on the task at hand. They worked hard all day and worked a full day. They cleaned everything up, put away all of their tools and stuff and left everything as tidy as possible before leaving right at about 5:00pm. This action happened every day throughout the entire project and I was very impressed with their work habits. The quality of their work also impressed me. John and his team really pay attention to the small details and ensure everything looks right. When they started, they took care of the fencing first. When they were getting close to completing the decks, I threw a couple of add-on at him to add a skirting to the decks and also apply a stain to all of it. He gave me a price the next day as well as how much longer it would extend the job in days that I accepted and he got all of that done too. They completed the job on time and when it was done, it looks great. I have received several compliments from neighbors on how nice my house looks now with the new decks and skirting. I called John back again recently for another project to remove the old vinyl siding and complete the hardy plank siding and trim on 3 sides of my house, install a new exterior door and window as well as paint it all. Again, he showed up on time, gave a very fair price, completed a quality job on time, leaving a clean and tidy work site each day. We did run into a few issues with wood rot behind the vinyl siding (which I was already half way expecting) that had to be replaced that added to the original quote but again, when the issue came up, John brought it to my attention right away and advised me of the additional cost. Again, John was very reasonable on the added cost and time. Also knowing that it is all fixed right without any hiding or underlying problems is a peace of mind to me as well. I defiantly like John’s work ethics and pride that he takes in his jobs ensuring his customers are completely happy with the job they paid for. I will for sure be calling him back for other future project I have in mind. I would also recommend him to anyone who is looking for a contractor to do your home improvement or remodel projects.

We highly recommend John and his crew who did a great job for us which included interior & exterior painting; installed baseboards ; remodeled bathroom. John was very professional and took care of everything we asked of him. John and his crew did a quality job and we would hire John whenever we need his services.

We were looking for a good contractor to rebuild our front porch. We are so happy we found J&R Construction and we love our new porch. It is obvious that John is very dedicated to making his clients happy and was very patient with us as we worked together to get just what we wanted. John and his crew worked very hard everyday and the quality of their work was excellent. At the end of each day the job site was clean and tidy. We would highly recommend J&R Construction and will certainly use him again for any future projects. Thanks J&R Construction

We called John and discussed our small powder room paint job. Within days, he came to the house, gave us an estimate, and scheduled the work. Elias completed the work in such a professional way, as if our small job was as important as any other, more extensive, job. The project was completed on time, as promised, and with good quality. We'll definitely use John and his team when we begin our bigger remodeling projects!

We were extremely pleased with the work done by John and his crew.

John and Cathy Harrington said on Mar 3, 2014 8:32 AM

We needed to have our 2 dormers repaired and painted. My wife had read about J&R construction on the Lago Vista Forum and the rave reviews about their work. John and Joe came out an replaced the trim, painted the trim, dormers and the chimney, looks great. Will keep their number close for the next major repair that needs to be done.

Before I begin I would like to mention that we were in the mist of remodeling our home and had experienced two (bad) contractors before we met John and his team. A friend called John on a Saturday after we had fired the 2nd contractor and John agreed to meet the very next day. Right away I could see that John truly cared about our mistreatment from our previous contractors. John walked throughout the house and made some discoveries. He pointed out issue with tape and float, unleveled concrete in the dining/living room area, bathrooms tiles were in a mess and John also noticed a pile of wasted mortar that had been shoved under our home from the previous contractor. I mentioned to John that we had sold our house and only had 10 days to move out. John immediately felt our urgency and took lead and began with the project. He realized that this was not a patch up job but a full blown remodeling project and John’s concern was to get us in our home as quickly as possible. Measurements were taken and within a couple of days, he introduced his plan. John and his team were always on time and work diligently throughout the entire day, which displayed integrity and hard work. We saw the immediate progress and were absolutely blown away on how quickly our home was starting to look like a home. We also appreciated the details John and his team displayed every day on the job, they truly cared about doing a good job. Very impressed with the professionalism that the whole team showed and the constant communication that John kept with us. The house was always cleaned after every day’s work. We would stop by on occasion and were never disappointed on how well John respected and cared for our home. When the job was completed and inspection had passed, happy tears appeared. A million thank you’s to John, Rosario and their team. We so much appreciate the beautiful work. We look forward to working with J&R again with the second phase of our home.

John did a great job repairing our house after we had an issue with our plumbing. His price was competitive, and he completed the job quicker than expected.

John painted my house (exterior) recently and did a terrific job. He and his crew were very polite and professional. Further, John was as meticulous a contractor as I've met and was pure pleasure with whom to do business. He was also very accommodating and reasonable when my wife and I made multiple changes midway through the job (sorry, John!) I would happily recommend him without hesitation.

5.0 star rating. J&R Construction helped remodel my kitchen, bath and living room. It was a pretty complicated job that required a lot of coordination. Not only did they ensure the job was done well technically, they were honest, good communicators and got all of the job done (not just what was in the contract) while keeping me comfortable in a construction zone. Unfortunately I have a lot more work to do on this house; fortunately I know about John and Rosario. I highly recommend them, for many reasons.

John stained a deck that I recently had built by another contractor in early June and was planning on staining myself, but decided I did not have the time to do it. I am very glad I called John - he and his crew came out and did a wonderful job , and it is absolutely beautiful. I was very pleased with their work and efficiency! I plan on using him for other jobs in the future!

I desperately needed some help with water issues after the last rain. I found John on Yelp, and took a chance. When we first talked, he was very professional and quickly scheduled an on-site visit to allow him to give me a proper estimate. Water was coming in a the bottom of a wall on the driveway, which was built many years ago to enclose a double car port. Another contractor had informed me that significant concrete sawing and trenching would be required. John called me after his site visit, and informed me there was already proper drainage on the driveway, but the wall had been improperly built, without flashing and waterproofing. He filled me in on how he would remove all the damaged structure and rebuild the front wall properly, solving the significant leakage problem in the affected room. His bid was very reasonable, and he quickly and professionally finished the job, leaving a clean and properly repaired work site, in a very short period of time. I have some more projects I need done, and will be calling him to take care of various issues, in the near future. He is a top notch and trustworthy contractor and business man, and I am really glad I took a chance on him.

Great, professional and clean . My project was done in one day. I had not one spec of clean up after the job was completed. We are hiring J & R for part of our pool build as well. I have never felt so comfortable with a contractor in my home. John is the best. When my granite is installed I am posting pictures of the before and after. John should charge more! If you have a "honey do" or home improvement project the only number you need to call 512-779-2417. Thank you John, Rosario and team. You Rock! I see many projects together in the near future as we build our dream stay-cation in the backyard.

5.0 star rating I called John & Rosario Monday morning hoping by chance they could paint our master bedroom by Wednesday. I knew this was very short notice. They came out Monday afternoon to take a look and started that evening. They worked late into the night and came back Tuesday to finish it. Our goal was to have it finished by Wed morning & without them it wouldn't be. They did a great job, not a drip on the floors or our furniture. John went above and beyond. When he noticed our vents needed to be cleaned and that our filter was way past due, he went to the hardware store & replaced it for us. He didn't have to do that. They made a great team!
