"JCM has done various home improvement jobs for me in, two homes, over the past eight years. In 2011, JCM renovated the entire floor of a home in the Bronx. The work included the renovation of a bathroom, kitchen, and the installation of new windows and wrought iron entry doors. In 2013, JCM renovated the entire house in preparation for sale. The work included the renovation of another bathroom and kitchen, restoration of hardwood floors in five rooms and two hallways, installation of a 12 windows, renovation of front entry way (door and stoop), painting the entire inside of the house, roof repairs, installation of a backyard fence, etc. When the house was listed, the first people that viewed it bought it. In 2014, JCM renovated the first floor of my primary house in, Westchester County, to accommodate an aging parent. In addition to major jobs, Jose has never failed to respond to minor job requests over the ensuing years.
Jose Matias has been a godsend. He does almost all of the work himself. He is a “stickler-for-detail;” a craftsman with an artist’s touch. He has always stood behind his work and if you have a question or a need for him to return for any adjustments, his response has, consistently, been immediate. Jose and his associate, Ada, are a joy to work with. I’ve worked with many contractors, over the past 60 years; in a number of states and locations. JCM is the best I’ve ever worked with."

"JCM Contractors did a complete renovation of our 2 bedroom apartment and few months ago I hired them again to replace the ceiling of my condo. They paid amazing attention to detail and were incredibly responsive. They far exceeded all of our expectations and would immediately turn to them if we were to have any additional renovation needs. From creating the design to following through in making it exactly as it was planned they were highly professional, and more importantly trustworthy. We would definitely use this contractor again and would recommend them without reservation."
"I interviewed many contractors before I discovered JCM Custom Contractors via Porch...and now I have a contractor for life!! My kitchen was beautifully transformed in such a professional manner, with little stress on my end, and at a very reasonable price. Jose and Ada are highly skilled, very professional and personable, which is rare in the contracting business. After the amazing kitchen job, I hired them again for air conditioning insulation, installing numerous light fixtures, vents & outlets, and re-grouting a shower stall. Another wonderful job. Highly recommend JCM. You will not be disappointed."

"Jose and Ada from JCM Custom Contractors LLC is an awesome contractor. He takes pride in everything he does and perfection is his goal. He re-did a bathroom for us a couple of years ago. We were a little skeptical about the project after he gutted the whole thing down. As he worked through it, we were very pleased with the outcome and I would recommend Jose to anyone any day!!!"

"The most important decision in renovating one’s home is deciding who will do the work. We decided to put our home in the hands of José Matias of JCM Custom Contractors, and it was unquestionably the right decision. We could not be happier with José’s work. He completely renovated our co-op apartment, highlighted by a brand new kitchen and bathroom. Not only is José a master craftsman, but he made wonderful creative suggestions throughout the process. José’s communication skills are excellent as well; he always kept us informed so there were never any “surprises.” José Matias is an honest, friendly person who is a joy to work with, and the quality of his work is outstanding. Hiring José was the best decision we made. Thanks José!"
"I purchased a fixer upper. I found JCM Custom Contractors LLC on Google. Jose and Ada showed up they were very honest about what the process would be like, the budget and the time it would take to do. They made a great first impression. I was thrilled with their professionalism and how knowledgeable they are. They were by far the best out of all that I interviewed. I am thrilled that I chose them and will encourage anyone looking to have renovations done to hire them. From the interior to the exterior they completely transformed my home. Their innovative design ideas gave my home the edge I was looking for. There is nothing that they are not capable of doing. Thank you Jose and Ada you are truly the best!"
"When my wife and I decided to renovate our Kitchen and Bathroom, I was searching for contractors on the internet. Thats when I came accross JCMs web site and somehow I felt I had to give them a call for an estimate. When they came to my home I instantly saw the pride Jose and Ada had when they were talking about what they do. Even though I had never heard of them I decided to trust them with my expensive renovation. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made. From day one they always came on time and I was amazed at the amount of dust in the house None! They insulated the door so that dust didnt come into the rooms. Along the way they always explained what was happening and what the next step was. I have never met anyone who loves and cares about their work as much as these two wonderfull people do. My bathroom now is all finished and it looks like it came out of a magazine cover. Thank you so much Ada and Jose and I'm looking forward to our Kitchen."

Now I have to throw dinner parties just so all my friends and family can see my new bathroom 🙂 "

"Dan and I want to thank you so much for the lovely kitchen you created for us. It was such a pleasure working with you over the past months to design the kitchen of my dreams and then to have your work turn out so beautifully. Ada, we deeply appreciated your taking the time to meet with us weekend after weekend at the different vendors and guiding us toward choices of cabinets, tiles, colors, etc., that were not only the best values and quality, but which best reflected our ideas, taste, and dreams. The result is a kitchen that not only has tremendous style but which is an absolute joy to work in. Ada's management of the job was also commendable – making sure she kept rigorous notes, copies of all work orders, and was simply on top of all details.
"We can’t heap enough praise on the quality of Jose’s workmanship. A consummate professional, Jose has a tremendous work ethic and his attention to detail is second to none. He also solved a huge logistical problem for us in an amazingly creative way. The refrigerator I had bought from Sears, and which I had my heart set on, wouldn’t quite fit through our kitchen door, even with the fridge doors off. I was about to send it back and order something else I didn’t really want, when Jose found a way to kill two birds with one stone – he was able to take the door frame off to enlarge the opening and then construct a new door frame that could accommodate the louvre doors I had had originally wanted to close off the space. I now have both the fridge and the doors, and it looks great.
"A few final observations. At the end of every work day the kitchen space was tidied up and all debris was removed. The refrigerator was hooked up the entire time so that we could have some basic use of the kitchen during the renovations. Jose developed an excellent working relationship with our co-op’s super and building staff—they couldn’t say enough about how easy he was to work with and have in the building."
The process of renovating a kitchen is never easy. We learned to live among boxes in the living room and eat take-out from the end of our coffee table for a few weeks. But once the work was done and everything was put back into place, the discomfort quickly faded away as we now have a truly beautiful, efficient, and up-to-date kitchen to cook in and show off to our friends.

“There are truly no words to express the gratitude I have for JCM Contractors and the work they did on my bathroom. After dealing with an unscrupulous contractor that left my bathroom in a rubble heap and who failed to come back after repeated requests, I discovered JCM Custom Contractors who worked with me to take that rubble heap and make it a truly show-worthy bathroom. Jose C. Matias is a man of his word and an incredible perfectionist who went above and beyond to explain what needed to be done and why. He is a true craftsman in every facet of contracting and showed me step-by-step the plumbing work and how the entire project must be handled so that the bathroom will last for the next twenty years. Additionally, Ada, JCM Contractor’s key Contractor/Administrator and Designer took the time to prepare a detailed accounting of the work being performed and the expenses for all the materials and products being purchased. She even took the time to accompany me to tile show rooms to help pick out the tile that was best suited for the project at hand. I came to trust Ada’s design judgment so much so that she picked out the details, including paint choices and the results were out of a magazine. More importantly, using their suppliers and contacts they made certain the costs were kept very reasonable and that the products were of the highest quality. I can’t say enough good things about JCM Contractors but to state that I can recommend them without question and am looking forward to working with them on my next project. They are the best of the best! Thank you Jose and Ada for turning a horrific experience into a manageable and pleasant one in the end! Extremely Happy Client."
