Comments: Juan and his men showed up on time, were very polite and courteous. He estimated that the work would take 2 days but he finished it in 1 day because they did stop for lunch. They cleaned up the area very nicely and the results were absolutely stunning. I am now thinking of hiring him for a major house renovation next spring.

Comments: We highly recommend J. Salazar General Contractor, LLC. If you had 10 stars that is what they would get! They were very professional,knowledgeable, detailed, knew what they were doing, experts in installing drywall, repair, and painting. We had a very high ceiling (side hall old 1929 colonial) that they had to put up scaffolding to install sheet rock and paint. Some of the old paster walls had cracks- they repaired them to look like new. They did a fantastic job. We are planning to re- hire them for additional projects on our list! They cleaned up and were very careful with not getting paint on our hardwood floors. Excellent work! We are so happy with the results! Thank you doreen & tom v, Livingston, NJ

Comments: Very timely, courteous, and professional. Juan pointed out a lot of details during the work, so that I was aware of what he was going to do. The crew always cleaned up after each shift. They were patient and very nice to work with. I'm very happy that now I have someone to call when my home needs work.

Review Date: 05/03/2015 | Author: Bill W.

Comments: Last year I bought a house that needed extensive repair. I have hired over 15 different trades people to do the work. Of the 15 I would recommend only three. Of the three I would rate Juan Salazar number #1. Excellent work beyond my expectations professionally done clean on time on budget. I would defiantly use him again. My only regret is that I didn't find him earlier. Bill Roseland

Comments: We called a plumber earlier and he gave us a fixed rate of $399, but on top of that, we need to hire another contractor to take out the dry wall and put it back after he complete his part... That is ridiculous.... Miguel is dependable and price is also very reasonable.

He showed up on time and got the project done in the time frame we originally discussed. He checked with me along the way to make sure I was in agreement with what they were doing.

Comments: Juan was courteous, friendly, on-time and did an excellent job at a good price. He minimized cost by thinking through and suggesting, for my approval, alternatives for replacing my kitchen fan which had been mounted in a very unconventional way.

Review Date: 07/16/2012 | Author: Alyn Y.

Comments: Juan and Miguel were a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. They did a big painting job on the interior of our new house (a five day project). They described exactly the detail that they would pay to the trim and repair of the walls, etc. They cleaned up after the job very well. They even did some extra work (painting of baseboard heater) just as a favor. The house looks beautiful, I couldn't be happier!! I am definately going to hire them again in the future for other projects.

Review Date: 06/22/2012 | Author: Marcelle J.

Comments: Salzar did an excellent job in hanging our Paintings on the Well. We were very pleased that he did the Job on the same day he came to give the estimate. We recommend this service to anyone who would like to hire him. We will hire him again if the price is reasonable for other jobs. Marcelle Jagdeo

Comments: This is a honest, professional and responsible family crew. The price is also reasonable. They make good suggestions and communications. They are also willing and patient to answer my stupid questions. I had a headache when required by the appraiser to fix my ceiling drywall. I think I just got lucky to find this family crew through servicemagic. They worked in my house for three days and it turned out to be good experience. I'll definitely look forward to working with them again for next project.

Review Date: 06/13/2012 | Author: Pinchas G.

Comments: This contractor is bar none one of the most curteous, professional and pleasant I have ever dealt with. From start to finish, they were meticulous and never failed to communicate issues with anything they were experiencing. Will definitely use in the future, they are a family owned and operated business. No corporate gimmicks.

Review Date: 06/06/2012 | Author: Avi B.

Comments: We are very happy with our choice of using J. Salazar. They were very good. They worked quickly and most importantly in the end--they cleaned beautifully. They even came back after they were done to do some small touch ups that we found after they had already finished the job. We would use them again.

Review Date: 06/01/2012 | Author: Alexei K.

Comments: Excellent work. Done in time. Reasonable price. Very easy to work with. Looking at the quality of work they did, I invited Juan and Miguel to do more projects - bathroom renovation, kitchen renovation, painting of the whole house and some other smaller jobs. I would definitively recommend them to my friends. Thank you very much.

Review Date: 01/01/2012 | Author: Adrienne G.

Comments: Juan was early for both the estimate and the actual job which was appreciated. He explained everything that he planned to do and why without being dramatic (which is usually a hint that the pro plans to quote you a really high price). He made sure I was informed every step of the way and the job turned out beautifully and the clean-up was perfect. I will certainly consult him for future paint projects.

Comments: Mr Salazar is a perfectionist!! Outstanding craftsman. What a Great Job!! The two ceilings looked super. We had a lot of furniture to move and Mr, Salazar and his crew did not charge us to move the furniture to the other rooms. It is obviously Mr. Salazar takes pride in his work, it sure shows in the works he did for us. Thanks for recommending him to us. Peter Summers Little falls, NJ

Comments: J.Salazar was fantastic. They were very professional, finished the painting project well on time with quality work. They gave great advice on color selection and cleaned up their work areas. They were also very cordial, patient & accommodating and also helped with a few areas that were not even on contract. Their pricing was quite reasonable. Of all the contractors we've used in our home in the last four yrs, they are outstanding.
