We have completed countless remodels and renovation projects in Connecticut for homeowners who love their home but want to improve it.

It is our goal to create an end product that you will absolutely love, and that meets or exceeds all of your needs and expectations.

Remodel or Renovate?

Many homeowners don’t know the difference between remodeling and renovating. They are similar, but there are some important differences.

Renovations often consists of updating, fixing or replacing some or all of the following: cabinetry, counter tops, showers/baths, vanities, lighting, flooring, painting and/or adding decorative finishes. Renovating is the perfect option for someone who wants to update, rather than remake, their space entirely.

Remodeling redesigns the space. During a remodel walls may be moved or completely removed, the space would be configured and evaluated for optimum use, and other major changes to the structure and/or design of the building could occur. When you work with JC Merritt, we create detailed designs with specifications that show you what the reconfiguration will look like. Remodeling is the perfect option for someone who not only wants to update the look of their space, but also wants to improve its configuration or structure.

We can help you make the most of your space

JC Merritt, Inc. can complete any project you are interested in achieving and even give you more than you originally bargained for! We understand that your home is something you care deeply about, and our goal is to make sure that any project undertaken by us is exactly – if not better than – what you expected to see on the last day of construction.

As a remodel or renovation is underway, there are sometimes factors that come up which impact the planned design or features – factors such as environmental concerns, structural concerns, and so on. If, after careful review and discussion, it’s simply not possible to implement something you want, JC Merritt will tell you and we will offer other solutions which as closely achieve the purpose of the original design as possible.

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”.
