About Our Residential Construction Company

Over 30 Years Serving the Ridgefield & Westport, CT Areas

Merritt-BioJC Merritt, Inc. was founded over 30 years ago in Northwest Connecticut by Jeff Merritt. Still family-owned to this day, Jeff and his crew specialize in foundation and structural repair, but deliver all size projects across Fairfield  and Litchfield counties. We have the knowledge and expertise to take on jobs from small repairs up to contracting additional crews and consulting experts for complicated projects.

Our goal is to give the client something they love. Our philosophy is to always let the customer know if something they expect or want just isn’t feasible; we work hard to find a solution that works and that the customer is completely satisfied with. JC Merritt, Inc. is Connecticut’s most reliable general contractor. Our business practice is honest and ethical, and we take pride in all of our projects. Take a look at some of what we’ve done across Connecticut.

What We Do


In addition to foundation and structural repairs, JC Merritt, Inc. also specializes in antique home renovations. We can salvage old wood that is in good condition whenever possible and are able to put it back into the home, to retain the antique quality and value.

While much of our service area is Northwest Connecticut, we also serve homes on the Connecticut Shoreline. Often with CT’s fierce hurricane seasons, shoreline homes can experience the damaging effects. JC Merritt, Inc. can handle erosion problems, as well as any seawall repairs you may need.
