Testimonials  
JKM Contractors did the home inspection on the mobile home I recently purchased. I was very happy with the fine tooth inspection he did. Suggestions were made with the fre findings.
Being a single woman needing some guidance I feel JKM Contractors did right by me. I will be looking to them in the future for work I will be planning in the future.

Jim helped me on my original project,gutter unclogging, and a second project. He is flexible and understands old houses. Walt P On November 22,2015

We usually take care of the maintenance of our home and property; but with age and commitments to outside obligations, we needed to reach out to hire someone to assist us in cleaning our spouting. Thank you for the opportunity to experience an individual who cared and saw other needs and took the time to do over and above our original request. It was an experience I was happy to share with others.- John B on October 26.2015

My goodness! What a great job done for me by JKM Contractors. I could not ask for a more professional team that was fair and reasonable in cost/pricing, on time, prompt, clean, timely, thorough and good. The work as a painter was just the beginning as needed power washing of my home, some general 'honey do' items I could not manage on my own. I would strongly recommend them. You will not go wrong.
