From Our Clients

I enthusiastically recommend JCMerritt. I first used them to evaluate my home on Lake Waramaug before I purchased it in 2010 and have used them for everything house-related ever since. Jeff and his son Branden could not be more responsive. Day or night, summer or the dead of winter, they answer my calls immediately and make sure things are fixed right away. I have used them for full-blown renovations, for new construction, for repairs, for maintenance and for general advice, and they are spot on every time. It is hard to imagine anyone better.

Customer, CT

I have worked with JC Merritt for 7 years, beginning with the house inspection and continuing through many, many repairs, renovations and improvements. Every interaction has been thoroughly professional and the work has been exemplary in every regard. They are extremely responsive and go the extra mile for work that is important to us but is not what they’d probably like to be doing (like restocking firewood and extricating the occasional mouse). They are not the cheapest, but on a total cost basis we come out ahead bc the quality is so high that the maintenance is lower in the future.

Customer, CT

Quality contractors who went the extra mile to guaranteed we got exactly what we wanted. Couldn’t have been happier.

Customer, CT

We inherited Jeff when we purchased our house in 1988, and he has been wonderful ever since!

Customer, CT

Quality work for a fair price and prompt attention when there is a serious problem or an emergency. Also, we have complete confidence in the integrity of Jeff, Brandon and the crew who have full access to the house when we are not present. This is critically important.

Customer, CT

They aren’t the cheapest, but they’re unquestionably the best. JC Merritt has done a lot of work on my home in the last 2-1/2 years. The quality is great and they’re thorough, meticulous and great at diagnosing difficult problems. I’ve come to rely on them for every fix – and there are many. I’ve also recommended JC Merritt to friends, who’ve been nothing but grateful and happy. I recommend them without any hesitation, whatsoever.

Laurie C.

We have used J.C Merritt for multiple projects. Their company is built on trust. There are very few people I would allow full access to my home while I’m not there. I have always been treated courteously and with respect. i recommend anyone give their expertise a chance on their next home project .

Ashley W.

Great people and great work. Very reliable and responsive

Jamie L.

Amazing local company. Small enough to offer personal service, yet large enough to handle all facets of construction. My family and I were in desperate need and thanks to a referral from Emmons Tree, we were put in touch with J.C. Merritt INC. My wife and I are beyond impressed and will definitely be refer our friends & family!

Bob A.

We used JC Merritt to solve a long-standing issue with a wet basement. The new French drain lives up to their promise of a dry basement! They are truly professional, honest, friendly, hard working and frankly the kind of people to invite to dinner once the project is done! We hope to use them again in the future to solve more of our “old house issues”.
