In July of 2016, while entertaining company, we had a plumbing emergency. Our handyman engaged Jason Holmes to come to our rescue over a two-day period, he completely solved our problem. He was admirable and friendly and immediately exuded confidence + capability. He did not try to make a costly job but was honest and upfront about what costs the job could entail and how extensive it might have to be. He used care in disassembling and re-assembling our bathroom cabinetry. He tried to make as little mess as possible and was considerate of recently laid new carpet it is a pleasure to have workmen in your home who take pride in their work. At the end of the first day, he cleaned everything up and left our home tidy. Jason seemed genuinely pleased to be able to make the job less onerous and less expensive and displayed real knowledge and skill in completing the work in a timely and competent manner. I have no hesitancy whatsoever in recommending him for any contract work you may ever need.

I’ve had multiple spectacular alterations by Jay performed to my home and not only has he given what I desired but he has always excelled in the quality and visualization that goes beyond awesome. Thanks Jay for all your hard work.  I’m excited for future projects.

Jason has completed several building projects for us at both our home and cottage, including bathrooms and laundry room involving demolition, new framing and drywall, ceramic tiling, plumbing piping and bath fixtures, electrical wiring and flooring.  Other work includes cottage deck railing  and roof repairs.

His workmanship is of high quality; neat and tidy including protecting existing finishes; clean up and removal of old materials.  We have been very satisfied with Jason’s work.  He is a pleasant guy to have around, and we would highly recommend him.

Jason did a complete renovation of our Bathroom, he was very helpful with ideas, and his work was excellent.
We were happy that he only took on one job at a time, and stayed until it was finished.
Jason was also very organized, clean, and trustworthy, and an all-around nice guy.

We would certainly recommend him.
Yours truly,

Called Jason when I had an emergency with my hot water tank problem, Water had been pouring out everywhere it was late at night when I contacted Jason he stopped everything came over to investigate he then made it safe for the night then returned the following day to replace the hot water tank. Jason also kept in contact over the next few days after it was installed to make sure I no longer had any issues with the water tank.

Jason explained everything what was going on and what needed to be done. He was very helpful and extremely happy he attended the emergency as fast as he did and also that he stayed in contact over a few days to make sure everything was going well.

Jay did an amazing job building my deck. He was able to provide design ideas that I wouldn’t have been able to come up with on my own. I love the outcome.

just wanted to take the time to say thank you for your fantastic work on our bathroom.
you went above and beyond your call of duty everyday, making sure that the toilet was back in place for me each night after work and every day you thoroughly cleaned up before you left.I don’t think there is another contractor who would of done what you did for me, and that makes you one in a million. John and I both truly appreciate you and hope you have an extremely successful future!!!

Mr. Jason Holmes

I wish to express my appreciation for the above namedgentleman, which is just what I have found him to be. Jason is, in my opinion, and I have seen many tradesmen and workforce personnel in my eighty years of life and industrial adventures, an exemplary person, this is not a solicited submission, it is rather the result of personal observation during the time he has performed his noticeable ability in my home. Mr. Holmes is kind, compassionate, understanding, amicable and friendly. he obviously cares profoundly for his role in customer relations and workmanship. I have never met Mr. Holmes until now. all I can say on his behalf is that when I was occupied in the world of industry, retail sales and contractualnegotiations, Iwould of felt very fortunate to have had a person of Mr.Holmes’s character and ability in my employ …

I was looking for a contractor to renovate my basement.
I just moved into my home and was very particular on who I chose.. After talking with Jay, I knew he would be honest and trustworthy. I was really impressed on how he itemized the bill so I knew exactly what I was getting into.  He did an extremely professional job and left at the end of every day with no mess.
Every day was exciting..
He is a very hard worker and has a lot of pride in what he does.
My basement is now amazing thanks to Jay.
I would highly recommend him for any job, you will not be disappointed.
