In June of 2016, I was in the market for a home purchase having rented in South Asheville for a few years. I found the perfect neighborhood and yard, however I wasn’t completely in love with the house. The floor plan was dated and interior of the house felt closed in. The homeowner’s in an effort to get the house ready to sell had performed some cosmetic changes but had used lower end materials that however functional was not inviting. Jay had been recommended to me through my mortgage lender who used Jay’s services in renovating an old home in West Asheville into a modern industrial office space. I loved the work and called Jay for a meeting. We had about 2 months to do the renovations which included removing walls in the living room, dining room, a brand new kitchen, dry stack fireplace, new flooring and a new industrial modern bar/ eating nook area. Jays approach to the project gave me a lot of comfort. He was logical, knowledgeable, creative and resourceful. He was able to form an overall plan which allowed for my input as well as his vision. Jay and his team completely transformed my new house into truly a home, it came out beautifully and beyond my wildest imagination. I am so proud of his work. Jay throughout the project was a calm, confident organized force that made it a pleasure to work with. He is trustworthy and fair.
I would highly recommend Jay and his team, he will make your remodel or renovation a pleasure and creative experience.
I am so thrilled and grateful I found McBride Construction. From the moment I first spoke to/met Jay In January to enlist him and his crew to tackle our major renovation project, I knew that this would be the first of many, many projects to come.
Jay was recommended to me by one of his happy clients (our family guitar teacher) whom he did amazing work for, and I couldn't be more grateful for the recommendation. I have thrown so much at him and his team as the project keeps growing into larger multiple projects. He is truly an expert who can handle all things!
He is incredible to work with, I cannot sing his praises highly enough. The same is for all of his clients, in fact, sometimes during guitar lessons, we find ourselves off track just comparing notes and going on about how great the whole crew is to work with!
McBride Construction is currently helping me restore an old dilapidated abandoned home by giving it new life and converting it into a charming little farmhouse. Aside from gutting parts of it and restoring the rest we are also building a 5022 sq ft master suite in addition. We've also got a brand new 1360 sq ft steel warehouse that they will be constructing from scratch. Gone are the days of renting my warehouse and soon I will be in a brand new space THAT I OWN!
They have also cleared much of the overgrown land (brush, VERY large obstructive trees with massive roots), a concrete structure, and more to breathe new life into what will be a beautiful backyard. It's pretty amazing how different and open the property is already looking, but, once we're finished, the before and after will be nearly unrecognizable.
Jay is extremely thorough, meticulous, thoughtful, and his death of expertise in so many areas is truly impressive.
I highly recommend for ANY construction project you have!
