Customer ReviewsJones Construction will fix your house like it was their house. . . . ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"If you are looking for a licensed general contractor for your home repair or remodeling, you have found them. What began for us, as a simple kitchen countertop and sink replacement, ended up a major structural rebuild of half of one side of our brick home. Termites had obliterated the wood framing behind the cabinets and drywall.
Rigsby Jones gave us a fair bid. He understood the severity of our problem, giving us a bid the morning after seeing our home. They fit us in ASAP. Through their diligence they found even more termite damage than anyone thought possible. He rearranged his calendar to address our serious problem. Rigsby and his crew also found a plumbing problem and a masonry problem done by our original home builder. He helped us with sub-contractors who could correct the problems that added to our original dilemma.
The Jones Construction crew came every morning at 8:30, laid out cloths to protect our floors, and minimized sheet rock dust and other debris by vacuuming while cutting. They took one half hour for lunch, came back and worked to the end of the day, every day. They cleaned up after themselves every day. They were kind, helpful, optimistic and very, very smart. Jones Construction will fix your house like it was their house. They will make it better than it was before. The man who comes to your home to bid the job is the man who comes to do the job. That is important to know.
Also, the window replacement company and the stone counter installation crew were both astounded and impressed with the accuracy of Jones Construction's work. The window rep said he couldn’t believe the window openings were true to his previous measurements. The counter installation crew couldn’t believe that the corner of the two walls Jones Construction rebuilt were exactly 90 degrees where the corners met. It made their installation a breeze.
Thank you Jones Construction."
What stands out to me... is how easy they are to work with . . . ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"When it came time to do some major renovations on my 40-plus-year-old house, I realized I needed a contractor. I had observed Rigsby for years working with the 4-year-olds on Sunday mornings at my church and 'knew' that was the kind of man I wanted to give my business to, and he did not disappoint.
After negotiating all the details, we decided to focus on renovating the master bath first. The challenge was to make the most of every inch of this too small, 1970s bathroom. Rigsby suggested some improvements I hadn’t thought of and I agreed the bathroom needed to be taken 'back to the studs.'
He developed a proposal and turned the everyday supervision over to his son, Brad.
The job is now finished and I couldn’t be happier with the look and the functionality of my totally new bathroom. But what stands out to me about my experience with Rigsby and Brad, and all their team really, is how easy they are to work with:
-considerate about the fact that their crew would be coming and going in my house while I am, too;
-conscientious about the details and standing behind their work;
-good at communicating what to expect when;
-meticulous about cleaning up after themselves;
-being patient with me as I tried to figure out all the things that needed to be 'selected by the owner;' and
-always trying to help me achieve an outcome I’d be pleased with."

"Rigsby and Brad,
We are thankful everyday for the superior work you have done on our house. The new windows for our whole house, kitchen remodel, french drains, crawl space liner and dehumidifier, roof repairs, and ductwork replacement were done with excellence and care for every detail. We couldn't be happier. It was a pleasure having you and your subcontractors in our house! We knew we would enjoy the finished product, but we actually enjoyed the process because you kept everything cleaned up, enjoyed your work and the genuine camaraderie between you and your men was enjoyable to be around! Thank you for your excellent work."

Rigsby and his associates became a part of our family . . . ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"In 1995, my wife Kim-pregnant with our son Dawson-and I decided that we needed an addition to our house. The "addition" was going to be twice the size of the original, with a somewhat "funky" structure. By chance, our architect struck up a conversation with Rigsby at Ro-Mac Lumber and Supply; he expressed interest in the project and after and an interview with us, sealed the deal.
The things that we most appreciated about Rigsby were that he worked daily alongside his carpenters, until the job was done; when needed, he used only subcontractors of whom he had personal experience; he was deeply knowledgeable about all aspects of construction; he used quality materials; and he always got the work done with a high level of craftsmanship. These and other tenets form the "Rigsby Jones Philosophy of Construction, (and life in general)," which he might share with you if you have a minute… or three.
Because we lived in the old house while they built the addition, Rigsby and his associates became a part of our family. Rigsby’s joy for life, his abundant stories and anecdotes, and his commitment to our community made the work that he did for us much more than a contractual job. Now 15 years in our house, we continue to appreciate the workmanship, but we also feel fortunate to maintain a wonderful friendship with Rigsby, Beth, and Brad"

We are extremely pleased with the results . . . ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"The work we needed in our kitchen and other areas of our home was by necessity, not choice. (A sink hole developed in the backyard causing the slab to shift and crack or loosen most of the tiles in the home.) We weren't looking forward to having things torn up and replaced and worried about finding someone we could trust in our home. (Kitchen cabinets and countertops removed, kitchen and bath floors torn up and redone, tile countertops removed and redone, drywall repair, painting inside and in the garage.) Rigsby came highly recommended through an acquaintance and we were grateful for the recommendation.
Rigsby and his crew were professional, skilled, easy to work with, trustworthy and reliable. Rigsby listened and responded to concerns and patiently answered lots of questions. The work area was kept as neat and clean as possible, with little intrusion into other parts of the house. We are extremely pleased with the results and can easily recommend Rigsby Jones and his team to others."

"I highly recommend Rigsby Jones for your contracting and construction needs. From the moment I met with him to the actual construction work and final product, and now my continued relationship with him as a consultant, Rigsby has been professional, competent, and respectful. He cares about the big picture and the tiny details of a project. I put complete trust in him for this project and I would do so again for any work on my house. All of this and the complete renovation of my bathroom was done in budget and on time."

"This is to convey my experience with Rigsby Jones General Contractor. I was more than pleased with their work. Each job was done in a timely and professional manner. The site was always left cleaner after the job than before. The most important matter was the honesty with which they conducted business. I never had to question any statement made by either Rigsby or Brad concerning the task under discussion. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation."

"Twelve years ago, my wife and I hired Rigsby Jones, on the advice of a friend, to renovate our newly purchased single-family house built in 1940. The house had been standing empty for a year, and needed some serious maintenance, updating, and expansion, including a new roof, HVAC, and plumbing, removing interior walls, and refinishing all surfaces inside and out. Mr. Jones drew a plan based on several conversations with us and some design options sketched up by an architect friend, and we shook hands with 'Rigs' and hoped for the best. The next day, he showed up on time with several colorful but seemingly honest characters who were also crack carpenters, and off to the races we went.
The man is brilliant, honest as the day is long, works like a draft horse, and although he can charm the birds out of the trees, he also knows Tallahassee and the construction trades. He knows how old houses are built, and nothing surprises him. He and his carpenters worked for months while we paid the bills, tore nails out of ancient yellow pine studs in freezing weather, and watched our charming old house that had been long neglected slowly come back to life. At worst, it was not a nightmare. At best, it was exciting and a pure delight to watch him and his loyal crew work hard and solve the countless issues and problems involved with renovating an old house.
In the end, we ended up with a solid, tasteful renovation that, although it seemed expensive at the time, has proved to be a solid investment and an excellent place to raise a wonderful child and pass the time of our lives in.
Rigs and Dan have come back several times to replace old doors and windows, seal unknown openings, and to provide advice on how to keep an old house alive and well in a time when craftsmen are rare and precious. We have complete confidence in Rigs and we would recommend him to anyone who has an eye and a taste for quality and craftsmanship, and who might also enjoy a long but good chat with an engaging character who is a slice of real Tallahassee."

"We hired Jones Construction to address an on-going problem that we had with water intrusion at a townhouse that we owned. They created an innovative solution to address water run off and also repaired the damage that resulted from the unabated water intrusion. The project was completed timely and we were delighted with the service and quality of work that was performed."

His honesty and integrity are without question . . . ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"Being a repeat customer of Rigsby Jones General Contractor, I can, without reservation, recommend him and vouch for the excellent quality of his work and reliable service. Over the years, he has expertly taken care of a variety of projects ranging from replacing doors and fascia, to totally renovating my kitchen, plus other major and minor updates to my home. In the last project he completed, he designed and constructed a large storage shed that perfectly matched my home which was built over 40 years ago. His honesty and integrity are without question. When he does work for you, it’s done right."
