    John and his team did a fantastic job with out basement remodel. Fair price and great work. Very professional and detail oriented. Understood our needs very well and offered some suggestions that helped improve the space. We'll get a lot of use out of our new room!

    5.0 Clifton N. Chagrin Falls, OH

    We’ve been remodeling our house for quite awhile now and to say John was the most genuine and professional contractor that we’ve worked with so far is an understatement. John treated us like family and went way beyond what we contracted him to do! Not only did they do an outstanding job with our basement remodel but he was patient and professional with a little bit of drama that we had during construction when it came to other contractors that he had to work around. I would definitely refer John to anybody who need remodeling done and will definitely use Desborough construction for ALL our next projects!

    5.0 Steve H. Madison, OH

    My family and I recently decided to finish our basement after leaving it unfinished during the initial construction of our home in 2019. We received quotes from almost 10 different companies, but ultimately chose Desborough Construction to complete the job. John, the owner, and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. John took the time to fully understand our vision and provided expert advice throughout the process. He was able to customize every aspect of the project to our liking, and the end result exceeded our expectations. His attention to detail and commitment to quality were evident in every aspect of the finished product. Throughout the construction process, John and his team went above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction. They consistently communicated with us and were always willing to answer any questions or address any concerns we had. Their professionalism and expertise made what could have been a stressful experience an enjoyable one. Overall, we are thrilled with our finished basement and grateful to John and his team for their hard work and dedication. We would highly recommend Desborough Construction to anyone looking to build or remodel their home. Their commitment to quality, attention to detail, and exceptional customer service make them a standout choice in the construction industry.

    5.0 Edward M. Concord Township, OH

    John and his crew recently finished our 1400 sq-ft basement in Concord. They added a bar, small kitchen with cabinets, full bath, multiple closets, etc. They handled all aspects of this project including rough and finish carpentry, insulation, drywall, electrical, plumbing, flooring, paint, assembly of all cabinets/doors/fixtures, etc. John is a high energy guy who always shares great ideas and multiple options. His crew share his work ethic, and focus on quality. They are all extremely detail oriented, neat, courteous, and very conscious of timing and budgets. My wife and I are extremely satisfied with this basement project, and will be contacting John for addition work throughout our house in the future. We would strongly recommend John and Desborough Construction.

    5.0 Bob M. Mentor, OH

    We had John finish the basement of our new construction home. He provided a detailed estimate and worked with me to carve things out I wanted to do myself. He showed up early every day and worked very hard. He was exceptionally courteous and professional, even provided floor protectors and clean air filters while he worked. He coordinated his own helpers and other trades as necessary, and was an advocate for a quality job beginning to end. It s not every day you come across someone like John who not only cares about you as a customer, he and his people take pride in doing a job well done. I d recommend John to anyone.

    5.0 Debra H. Perry, OH

    John completely finished 1440 sq ft of our unfinished walk-out basement, adding a huge family area, an office, a craft room, a bedroom, a master-sized bathroom, and access to storage and workshop areas. John provided us with the space that we had envisioned and more, always keeping in mind our intended use and those who would occupy the space. He made suggestions for improvements that, while seemingly minor, were hugely significant in the end. He masked duct and piping runs with dropped ceiling areas that are symmetrical and look premeditated, rather than making the ceiling look like it was formerly a basement. And the finish work is immaculate! John and his crew worked long hours, always sensitive about our living areas being kept clean, and always cleaning the under-construction areas nightly. This is a crew of cheerful professionals, and John has a knack for bringing in other trades on whatever day he needs them, including same-day! The finished rooms match our existing structure in materials and style, and the overall effect is that the house was all done at one time. Over these holidays, we entertained nearly daily, and several friends with their own future projects asked for John's info. He told me that he is available for any project, and he will provide whatever manpower is required, including for the outdoor pergolas that we have planned!

    5.0 Ann M. Painesville, OH

    He installed baseboard molding and painted them in his shop before. He touched up on them prior to my carpet. They cleaned up after the work and it just looks amazing! Installed furnace vents in every bedroom. He was on time and professional! I would hire them in a heartbeat.

    5.0 Tanya J. Cleveland Hts, OH

    N/A Ivana Y. Willoughby, OH

    John and his crew did a fantastic job on our kitchen remodel. They arrived on time everyday. They cleaned up the work area and left it spotless after each day worked. Any questions I had, John answered them in a timely manner. Communication with him was the best we have ever had with any contractor. We absolutely love our new kitchen! We would without a doubt hire John again for future updates to our house. He was a pleaseure to work with and went above and beyond to give us our dream kitchen! Thank you John for a job well done!
