New Homes and Additions (see our gallery)

J&L Builders has designed and built many custom homes throughout the state of Rhode Island.11a-f29

Are you hoping to design and build the home of your dreams? J&L Builders can make it happen. Joe and Michael’s extensive background and experience enable them to help guide you through the design phase, all the way to move-in day. We have the expertise to control and manage every aspect of the project (unlike many companies that rely heavily on their subcontractor’s expertise). We work hand in hand together with our clients, understanding their needs and ideas, drafting working plans, and building their dream home to completion.

J&L Builders can also design and build that addition you’ve always wanted. We’ve built very simple additions to more complex ones… like adding a second floor to an existing ranch house. Dealing with existing (and many times older) construction can sometimes be more challenging than new construction. It takes years of experience to foresee the obstacles that lie ahead, be able to deal with them, and make your project look gorgeous in the end.

Kitchens and Bathrooms (see our gallery)

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in a house and one of the biggest focal points. Many people hold their family gatherings and entertain primarily in the kitchen. It can often be the one room where you may spend the most money, but it will definitely give you the biggest return on your investment.

J&L Builders can transform your old, out-dated kitchen into a more modern, functional kitchen… adding beauty and value to your property. We have the experience and knowledge of the materials needed to help guide you in making the right choices, within your budget.

J&L Builders are experts in transforming your existing bathroom into a fortress of solitude. We can enhance the most basic bathroom into a room of beauty and functionality. Simply adding little pleasurable upgrades like a heated ceramic
tile floor, heat fan, a silent exhaust fan, recessed medicine cabinets, granite countertops (or whatever your imagination desires) can make a huge difference to both you and your home.

In most cases, J&L Builders will perform all of the work necessary for this transformation. If the project does require subcontractors, we have some of the most trustworthy and qualified subcontractors available in the state of Rhode Island to help you achieve your dream room.

General Remodeling and Other Services

Remodeling can be very challenging. It takes years of experience and a thorough knowledge of construction, including local building codes, in order to have a successful renovation project completed on time and within budget. There are many unforeseen obstacles that the inexperienced contractor will not anticipate in his quote. This is why J&L Builders takes it’s time to inspect the site of the work, carefully taking measurements, and getting the full description of what you expect in the finished product.

Energy Savings and Tax Credits

Are you looking for ways to save money on your energy bill? One of the biggest losses of energy in a home is through the windows.  There are always rebates and tax credits available when you purchase energy efficient windows.

J&L Builders installs high-performance, energy-efficient replacement windows. These windows have been certified by Energy Star and have been evaluated by the National Federation Rating Council and meet the requirements to receive this credit. We’ll be glad to give you an in-home consultation.

The demand for solar energy has increased in recent years. J&L Builders, Inc. is a certified dealer and installer of Alternative Renewable Energy Solutions (ARES) Solar Thermal rooftop systems. There are many local and federal tax savings offered to homeowners who install a qualified solar thermal system.

An added benefit: saving money on your energy bills is good for you and good for the environment.
