“We have a long term relationship with TJ Built, been working with this incredible team from 2015 through 2022 and continuing. They were a referral to us by a trusted resource. We could not be happier and more grateful with TJ Built’s level of professionalism and quality, as well as efficiency with completing our work on time. We worked with them hand-in-hand on several phases of construction and renovation of our home including our kitchen renovation, our complete outdoor demolition and rebuild, adding square footage to our home including an extra bedroom, bathroom, roof deck. The quality of TJ Built construction is exceptional. Jim and Tom are always so responsive, reliable, and continue to provide us with the best guidance throughout our projects. We trust them completely and will continue to work with them for the various needs of our home.”

“We hired TJ Built for a demolition and renovation of our Petaluma home. We love their attention to detail and quality work. But there is more:
1. Honest, hardworking employees. We especially loved Marvin. He works hard, does good work, cleans up after the job each day, and he is an honest, kind human being. We trust all of TJ Built’s employees, so much so that we gave Jim key to the house.
2. Clean: as mentioned above, they clean up each day after working.
3. Creative: Jim and Tom have creative solutions to unexpected problems that may arise. And they have wonderful suggestions for the house that we didn’t know were possibilities. For example, Tom suggested we use a smooth texture for the walls. And it looks great. Tom suggested that we put in a gas line for our outside bbq. No need to keep replacing tanks. It has been a godsend. Many other examples too.
4. Jim and Tom stand behind their work. If they had ever made a mistake, I know they would have taken responsibility for it. They are that kind of people. Honest and trustworthy.
We recently renovated our bathroom and TJ Built was our contractor of choice. The bathroom looks great.”

“Our architecture firm had been working for over a year with a client, developing a comprehensive plan and technical documents for major renovation of their home in Larkspur. TJ Built was not originally the contractor selected to do the project, but they were assisting the selected contractor on the framing of the project. TJ Built’s leadership and capability quickly became obvious and eventually they were awarded the entire project. On any project our company works on, we always find the most successful outcomes are when there is a strong team effort between the owner, architect and contractor. We found Tom and Jim excellent to work with particularly because of their contribution to this team approach. They were great at wanting to understand what we were trying to achieve and coming up with ideas and solutions to meet those goals. TJ Built also has their own team of great carpenters and subcontractors, who were equally helpful in delivering a beautiful and high quality end product. I would highly recommend TJ Built! “

“We had a new kitchen installed by TJ Built Construction last summer and we could not be happier with the entire project. From beginning to end, the process went smoothly. This started with getting a custom design done (which was much better than the road we initially started down with the Home Depot kitchen design department) through demolition (painless and clean) to installation of cabinets and appliances. Finally, the cost was the lowest of any of the bids we received. The end result was as good as you can get…..at any cost!!! I highly recommend them.”

“After 3 years of planning for a kitchen renovation, we put our plans to bid with 4 contractors. TJ Built had been brought in by my landscape contractor to fix a problem. I was so impressed with them, that they became our 4th bid. They have been on the job for 4 of the estimated 8 weeks. Owners/builders Tom and Jim are amazing. They work smart, are conscientious, brainstorm problems with us, pay attention to the details, clean daily and are enjoyable to spend the days with. Since I work from home, and they are directly below me, I have developed a rather intimate relationship with them and their dedicated crew. I have other properties and have worked with dozens of contractors. These guys are as good as it gets. I appreciate them everyday!!”

“We have worked with TJBuilt on multiple projects over the last 10 years. We have been extremely happy with the quality of their work. In addition, their input on design elements has been very helpful. Tom and Jim have stood behind their work and continue to offer support after projects are completed. The crew led by Marvin and various sub-contractors have been considerate, knowledgeable, and careful. We wholeheartedly recommend TJBuilt.”

“Jim and Tom were referred to us by a friend (whose renovation we loved) to help us add on an extra bathroom within our house, all new construction…and during the first year of the pandemic! Not only did the team do a fantastic job (notably carpenter Candelario and electrician/utilitarian Marvin), especially under the circumstances, they also took great pains to keep our family safe, which was greatly appreciated and no small task (using alternate makeshift entrances, keeping spaces sealed off, etc). Jim and Tom helped us sort through multiple seemingly small details that other contractors may have overlooked, all while patiently walking us through options and reasoning, which was a big deal as this was our first true renovation/construction project. Not only did we learn a ton with their help, but everything came in under budget and on schedule, which again was remarkable given the circumstances. We look forward to hiring them again for our future renovation jobs, and would not hesitate to refer them to friends and family as was done for us! “

“If we could give TJ Built Construction company a 10 star rating we would! From the moment we met with Tom and Jim, we knew they were they right people for not only our first renovation job but second and third. They are the rare combination of professional and personable. If we made a special request the answer always was “of course, if that is what will make you happy”. We could not be more pleased with the results. Quality, integrity and simply a wonderful, first-class group of dedicated craftsmen who value their superb work and reputation. In addition to Tom and Jim, brothers Marvin and Byron are simply gems to work with. We could not have asked for anything more! “

“Tom and Jim are terrific to work with – from planning and designing our project to the clean and careful demolition and reconstruction process to the new windows and finish work – all we could have hoped for and more! Very creative and helpful as things evolved. As an example, a wall/ceiling support engineering issue discovered during demolition was quickly resolved completely; pretty sure another contractor might have found a way to charge a lot for that fix. But Tom and Jim brought it to us, worked the problem, and took care of it immediately and without difficulty. They and their team were on time, courteous, careful, on budget, and a pleasure to have in our home. The final product was spectacular and has made a tremendous difference in our lives – everybody loves it. We’ve recommended them to friends/family and cannot praise them enough! Real pros and great people!”

“I met Tom and Jim in 2018 when they bid on a project to build-out a 5,000 square foot professional office for my firm in Corte Madera. I did not know Tom and Jim, so I reached out to one of their clients that they have done many projects for; the reviews were outstanding so I hired Tom and Jim without further due diligence. We were on a very tight schedule to coordinate the timing of the build-out and occupancy of the new premises to avoid significant penalties with our prior office space if we had delays. In summary, Tom and Jim completed our job on-time and on-budget. They were outstanding to work with and they did a great job of managing all of the various people and organizations involved including, us as clients, landlord, architect, city permitting and inspectors, sub-contractors and their own employees.”

“In 2020, My wife and I hired Tom and Jim to complete a renovation of our backyard at our personal residence. Our renovation included a decommission of a swimming pool and fill-in, and a design and build of a backyard deck, above ground Corten steel planters and a custom barbeque and gardening center. This project was very fluid but with Tom and Jim’s expertise and vision, the project turned out far greater than first planned. Again, Tom and Jim did a great job in managing the entire process and team. My wife and I could not be more happy with the outcome.”
– Scott & Jackie – Greenbrae
“In 2021, my family hired Tom and Jim to perform a complete refreshment of our 60 year-old family home that had 30+ years of deferred maintenance. Tom, Jim and their team, did an outstanding job in renovating the entire house, inside and outside, in preparation of our house for the rental market. The renovations included, new hvac, water heater, appliances, painting, resurfacing of floors, fixtures, electrical upgrades, fences, stairs, landscaping, etc., etc. Once again, Tom and Jim managed this project on-time with great professionalism and outcome.”
