This experience laid the foundation for his shift into the construction industry.

"Look no further! The Build Firm and Jason are are the ones you want handling your remodel. Jason was a fresh breathe of air when it came to handling my complete remodel. It's so hard to find a contractor that is down to earth and relays all the information you need in order to feel good about your project. My home is located in Huntington Harbor, and it was so important to me to find someone that understands high-end finishes. Jason showed me his portfolio of work from projects he had done and that he was experienced with. multi-million dollar homes remodels. Jason was always available to answer any questions I had and was very up front around the timeline and price...which is the so important. I have 4 kids and was on a tight schedule to get the work done...Jason made it happen. I couldn't be happier with the final product and look forward to working with Jason in the future. Thanks for everything Jason!"

Jason @thebuildfirm did a two phase remodel for us on time and on budget all the while juggling a million details while keeping us happy and comfortable through the whole process. I run a preschool out of my home so he had to schedule our work during my school breaks and worked on a tight timeline as well. Not only is the work outstanding in quality he is highly design oriented and made changes here and there to upgrade the esthetic. He always uses top notch craftsmen who were all excellent pleasant and trustworthy. In phase one we upgraded our electrical installed HVAC and put on a new roof Raingutters termite roof repair and installed a pull down ladder to access the attic. In phase 2 we made the kitchen bigger and took out two walls one of which was a supporting wall so redid our roof and installed a footing and new support beams. He hired a custom cabinet maker and we remodeled the kitchen to my specifications and working with a designer @lpinteriors and Jason and the cabinet maker Sergio at Ardmore wood works we nailed my dream kitchen. We upgraded plumbing and added a tankless water heater as well. We also upgraded the back den took out popcorn ceiling moved the door jam and demoed the old electrical box bump as well as painted and added new flooring to match the existing flooring in the house white oak. We ran the same flooring through the kitchen and back room. Really Jason continues to go the extra mile in getting that punch list finished. This is a picture of him in our rafters vacuuming after our garage got debris after the roofing was done.
