Jackson Andrews Building + Design performed a whole-house renovation for me three years ago. Under the best of circumstances this would normally be a stressful ordeal. But Jackson and Rick made it anything but. Their work was excellent; though this was not the best of it. They became my friends. And even now, I miss seeing them on a regular basis. Simply put, JABD provides superb work on a timely basis for a reasonable price. One can’t ask for more than that. I could not recommend them more highly.
We hired Jackson Andrews Building + Design to build our Northend home. Hiring Jackson and his team was, by far, the best decision we made. The entire team was professional, knowledgeable, and accessible throughout the process from beginning to end. The quality of the build and the integrity of Jackson and his team are unmatched. Jackson’s impeccable taste and understanding of our vision helped the process to be very smooth and relatively stressfree, which was a surprise to us as so many people told us that building a home can be extraordinarily difficult. We never felt stressed and enjoyed the whole process. Jackson was also very cognizant of the budget and always looked to find savings for us. We cannot recommend JABD more!

The benchmark of a premier builder, such as, Jackson Andrews Building + Design, is, “Would you use them again?” My answer is an unequivocal yes. In fact, I have renovated all 3 floors of my house with JABD in the past 6 years, so I have called them back 3 times! Their team is outstanding, the nicest, most customer-driven, finest craftsmen I have ever worked with. I was happy to have them in my home and I actually missed them when they finished the job. They did special mock ups for me of hard to envision custom features so that I could say, “yes” I like that or, “no” lets try this. They even covered the construction dumpster with lattice so that it was more pleasant for me and my neighbors to look at. They are experienced with high end products and finishes and were able to recommend just what I was looking for. At the end of the project, JABD presented me with a detailed binder including pictures of the inside of the walls so that I would know exactly where certain pipes and wires are run within the house for future reference. It also contained the plans and owner’s manuals for all the systems that were installed. Jackson Andrews is a person of the highest integrity and that is reflected throughout his company. He is the best!
Happy, satisfied customer since 2012
Our experience working with Jackson and his team while building our house was extremely positive. They are all professional, responsive, respectful, honest and 100% stand behind their work. They were open to working closely with our interior designer, and unlike other builders who say “we don’t do that,” Jackson and his team were always willing, and made a concerted effort to find a way to execute what we wanted. One of the highest endorsements we can pass along is the unsolicited and consistent comments from the outside tradespeople / subcontractors working on our build. We were told many times “you are really lucky to have JABD, we work with a lot of builders and he is one of the best around, you will end up with quality work throughout your home and it will last.” We fully agree and 3 years later JABD has been there to help and troubleshoot any issues that arise. The integrity of Jackson, his team, and their work remains evident.

We highly recommend JABD for any construction project large or small! Bruce and I bought a spec home on the property of the Cavalier Hotel. It was only two-thirds complete when we bought it. We needed a builder to complete the unfinished space and to customize features in the finished areas of the home. From drawing/designing the architectural plans for the unfinished space to completing the various customization projects, the JABD team was fabulous. They listened to our needs and preferences during design and drew the plans to accommodate them. The progress and details of the project were kept on track by the on-site supervisor which proved to be invaluable. Their subs were courteous and their work was of superior quality. We are extremely pleased with the results of our design/build collaboration with JABD.

Three years ago my wife and I decided to build our dream home… We interviewed two builders before a family member recommended we contact Jackson Andrews. In our first meeting with Jackson, we were highly impressed with his design and building knowledge. He spent several hours answering every question we had in full detail. It wasn’t long after that we signed a contract with him to help design and build our custom home. During the design process the whole team was detailed, patient and informative on everything from the architecture to the color of the walls. They even framed up a portion of our house in an open field to help us visualize a space that we were unsure about. It was a lot of work but so helpful! It showed us from the beginning they would go the extra mile for us… JABD was an absolute joy to work with from beginning to end. Most importantly during the whole design and build process, their team was attentive, responsive and did what they said they were going to do! I went into the building process thinking it would be difficult and miserable, but with JABD’s help, they made the process enjoyable. Without question, we would recommend Jackson Andrews Building + Design to anyone looking to build or remodel their home!

My wife and I decided on Jackson Andrews Building + Design in the summer of 2015. We had already secured property and wanted to build a custom beach bungalow at the North End of Virginia Beach. In meeting with Jackson, I conveyed my specific budget requirements, as well as various design concerns. I also required the opportunity to see examples of his work and meet those clients. Jackson not only provided those references, he met all of my other requirements. I admit that I am difficult to please, but Jackson and his outstanding staff of professionals exceeded all of our expectations. The fact is, building a new home is not an easy process. The decisions you face can be daunting. Jackson’s team guided us through every step and I can say without reservation that this was simply a wonderful experience for us. We absolutely love our new home and are happy to provide this reference and tours of our home as an example of their first-class service and excellent workmanship.

From our initial meeting to the completion of our project, working with JABD was a dream. They took our initial idea for a renovation and exceeded every expectation we had. Many people warned us about the stress and chaos that typically with renovating, but the care and attention to detail we experienced with JABD made the process fun and easy. JABD handled each and every detail with precision and care, guiding us along step-by-step.
The entire team at JABD is committed to excellence–not only do they excel in their field, but each member of the team joyfully goes above and beyond what any client would expect, always putting clients’ needs first. The entire team is marked by talent, vision, and integrity, and we couldn’t be happier with our finished project!

We could not have had a better experience with the team from Jackson Andrews Building + Design. (And we can VERY CONFIDENTLY make this statement, having used other contractors in the past – there is simply no comparison). JABD does what they say they will do, and finishes the job when they say it will be done; there is none of the typical run-around, mistakes and missed deadlines typically associated with general contractors. In our (very complicated) home-renovation, Jackson himself was invaluable from beginning to end, with everything from design elements, to budget planning, to timing considerations, to “last mile” work, and JABD’s warranty and follow-up services are second-to-none. Maybe most important of all, every person involved in a JABD project – from the JABD project manager to each subcontractor – is reliable, trustworthy and committed to providing the excellent service and incredible final work product that distinguishes JABD from other contractors. Home construction projects almost always involve a little bit of “pain”, but Jackson and his team truly made our experience as painless as possible, and we would not for one second hesitate to use them again or recommend Jackson to family and friends.

I loved working with JABD on the renovation of our 1946 beach home in the North End. Design recommendations were creative and met my objectives. Prompt and detailed communication was consistently exceptional. All personnel were friendly and professional. Some people think construction projects can be a headache, but not with these guys! What a pleasure. I’d hire JABD again in a heartbeat!
