Jason is extremely detail oriented and transparent.  Throughout our construction process, Jason kept an open line of communication, and ensured that everything was done correctly and timely.  We enjoyed working with Jason and are very happy with the finished product!

We completed a redesign, master bedroom addition and total renovation of our 1960’s ranch house with Jason in 2019/2020. From the beginning we knew we had the right contractor as Jason had years of experience working with houses that were similar to ours so he had great thoughts and ideas about what we could do to modernize our home. We were able to use most of his ideas to make our house much more livable for the 2020’s.

Jason is very organized and communicative to work with and he was able to keep our project on track with the construction goals even after Covid hit. He provides regular written updates showing the construction timeline moving forward so you always know what is happening next. He also provides regular written budget updates outlining where you are with regard to your budget.

Jason will provide as much or as little assistance as you need with regard to purchasing items for the renovation. He helped us with tile, backsplash, windows, paint colors, and other selections and he has an excellent sense of design. He really helped us make sure everything that was selected for the house worked well together.

Jason has worked with many of the same subs for years so he knows the quality of their work and they all work well with him. The quality of the work from these subs was excellent especially the carpenters, electricians, plumbers, painters, and HVAC subs.

When things arose in our project (and with a whole house renovation of a 1960’s house, things are going to arise!) Jason was very communicative about the issue and provided options for addressing the situation. He is also a calm person by nature and he did his best to make these situations less stressful.

We found Jason to be a very honest and professional person to work with and we are very happy with how our home turned out.

We love our home remodel! Working with Jason and JL Custom Group was a truly great experience! Jason was so patient with us and he has a great eye for design and detail. In addition to the construction aspect, Jason shopped with us and helped us pick out flooring and pointed us in the right direction when looking at plumbing fixtures and other design features. We stayed in our house during our remodel, as what started out as a smaller job ended up being a bigger kitchen remodel than we had originally imagined. His crew was extremely responsible, respectful, and skilled in their respective trades.  Both Jason and his crew were helpful with troubleshooting some unforeseen issues- they were all solved creatively and the end result is amazing. We had envisioned a change when we bought the house but Jason really brought our vision to reality. Besides the fact that our new office space, kitchen, and laundry room look great now, we made some functional changes that improved the organization and flow of our space. Highly highly recommend! We would not hesitate to use JL Custom Group again, and are already thinking about what’s next on the list!

The moment I spotted it, I knew THIS was the house that had to be mine. It was as close to perfect for me as I could have possibly hoped. But as with most things that are not custom there were a few updates I wanted to make, and I knew that Jason Laviage from JL Custom Group was who I wanted to work with. This would be my second renovation with JL Custom Group and I had no doubt the professionalism, cleanliness, punctuality, transparency, and pricing would be better than other contractors who offer similar services. 

Jason stayed in constant contact with me during the process. He offered industry advice by presenting choices and suggestions, but he never pushed me to change the scope of my design ideas. All of the sub-contractors he used were kind, professional, and made sure to keep things as tidy as possible.

Throughout the renovation, Jason provided me with weekly budget updates and detailed explanations for each line item. I felt Jason did an excellent job of communicating with me; keeping me informed about everything including potential delays, how to prepare and what to expect. Jason always returned my emails, phone calls, and text messages within 24 hours, but most of the time he got back to me right away.

Now that the work is complete, I am beyond thrilled with the results. The final product is exactly what I wanted. Every time I walk into the spaces that Jason transformed, I get this big, happy smile on my face! I look forward to the day when I can host people in my home again and show off the fabulous work Jason and JL Custom Group did for me.

Jason Laviage and JL Custom homes is one-of-a-kind among my multiple experiences of remodeling my homes.  Who do you know that offers a 1-year guarantee of their work?  Jason is my first!!
Have you had a general contractor complete jobs on time and sometimes less than budget?
After having a sewage flood and 6 weeks planned for living outside of my home, Jason completed the remodel early and along the way found more cost-efficient ways to complete tasks than each of the quoted builders.
Jason’s subs are very conscientious craftsmen, some who worked weekends and all who did great work and were willing to revisit a project if needed!
Working with Jason was a breeze, he plans for timely execution and keeps a rigorous accounting of
where the remodel costs are each stage of the way.  It is apparent with each visit that highest quality work and customer satisfaction are forefront in his mind when working with his clients.
I look forward to my next project with Jason and team!
He had us on the same team always and he had my best interest at heart!!

We cannot say enough positive things about Jason. Jason is responsive, patient, caring, and just all-around wonderful to work with — we had complete faith in him throughout the project. Jason made the process of renovating our home as painless as possible. He has assembled a top-notch crew of workers and subcontractors, and we could not have been more pleased with their professionalism and workmanship. But what distinguishes Jason from other contractors is his fine sense of aesthetics and creative yet practical design ideas. A real class act.
Jessica and Matt M.
If you have the opportunity to work with Jason – TAKE IT!!! Immediately! You are one of the lucky few! He turns down most jobs because his roster is full. He does not overextend his team because he’s all about quality of the work, convenience/schedule of the client, and being responsive and present throughout the whole job. The guidance, artisanship and finished product you get with Jason is probably worth at least twice as much as he charges (shh, don’t tell him). The whole team is incredible, but we particularly loved Jose and Proto’s work (carpentry and tile, respectively). Overall, the most important thing anyone should look for in a contractor is honesty, with quality of work a close second. Jason is honest (almost) to a fault. He never underexplains, overpromises, underdelivers or overcharges. Never once having to worry about whether you can trust your contractor – or his large team of workers – that’s worth its weight in gold. This is a no brainer! Take it and run, none of the other decisions you have to make regarding your renovation will be this easy. Oh, and assuming you go with Jason, congratulations on your beautiful new home.
Rollin and Eden McCleskey
Jason was so conscientious, honest, responsive, creative, and a pleasure to work with.  We love our new remodeled home and if we were to flood again, we have already retained Jason.  He had wonderful ideas to remodel our flooded house and we love our new updated home.  Our experience with Jason and his subs was outstanding.  We would highly recommend Jason and his company.

JL Custom Group did a fantastic job helping us put our house back together after the devastating Harvey flood. They were amazingly quick and responsive (Jason was there as soon as the streets were drained), provided solid suggestions for improving our renovation, and were always available to answer any questions or help solve any problems (we have worked with other contractors who would just stop responding after a while or would even fade away—never Jason, no matter what time!). Jason and his crew were very sensitive to our situation and kind in every interaction. They got us back into our house less than 7 months after Harvey (and our house had to be gutted due to 2.5 feet of water), and did so while maintaining an exceptionally high level of quality and professionalism. We love our house more than we did before! While we wish we hadn’t flooded we are so happy with the finished product. Our HUGE thanks go out to Jason and his crew and we will use JL Custom Group each and every time we remodel in the future.
Dave and Marni
JL Custom Group did a complete remodel down to the studs on my home. Everything was completed in a timely and efficient manner and Jason was delightful to work with. I felt that he always listened to my needs & concerns and always took action as needed. He has a very hands-on approach to the process which is hard to come by. The end result is a very well-built home with attention to detail and I’m so very proud of the work that he and his trusty crew did for our family.

We hired Jason for our home remodel because we’d heard really good reviews from previous clients and we liked the creative design element Jason brought to the table. Jason spent countless hours shopping with us and scouting out the perfect finishes;  time and effort other contractors surely wouldn’t expend.  Despite a number of challenges out of our control, Jason was able to come in under budget and on time for the arrival of our new baby! We are so thrilled with the finished product and highly recommend Jason. Most people don’t end up friends with their contractors nor do they want to hire them again – well we broke both those rules with Jason.
The Levins
Working with JL Custom Group was a true pleasure. Jason and his staff were organized, reliable, polite and most importantly, highly capable! We still marvel at the way Jason was able to manage so many home remodel projects after Hurricane Harvey. He was available, easy to communicate with, and had an artistic eye that made us feel like we were working with both a contractor and designer. We would definitely re-hire JL Custom Group for our next remodel project! 
The Raizners
After we got through the initial shock related to the floods of Hurricane Harvey, we called Jason to initially get some advice on the extent of the restoration and possible renovation of our house.  Jason came over almost immediately and provided some very solid and helpful advice — and we had not even discussed hiring JL Custom Group as our contractor, as we still had a lot of clean up work to do. A couple of weeks later, we reached out to Jason to visit in more detail, and we were delighted when he said that he had capacity to take on our renovation and rebuild. We always liked Jason’s design aesthetic and had seen various examples of his previous remodel projects.  
Several months later, we were so pleased with the final product.  Our house looked great — certainly better than it did before Harvey. Throughout the remodel, Jason was so easy to work with. If we had changes or questions or wanted to visit on some new ideas, Jason was always accessible and took time to make sure that we were on board with each of the decisions being made.  Additionally, since we lived upstairs during the renovation work, Jason and his crew were very respectful of our time and our space, while endeavoring to get all of the work done in a timely manner.
We would highly recommend JL Custom Group for your renovation and remodeling needs. 
Leslie and Paul Strug

We can’t say enough positive things about JL Custom Group. Jason led us through every step of the renovation process – from the conceptual scope discussion (where he advised us on what renovations would result in the best return on investment) to the details of choosing materials and finishes. Jason finished the project on time and on budget. The final product is not only beautiful but also extremely functional for our family

The Chaffin family

When we decided to move to a larger home to accommodate growing teens, we were happy to have the help of Jason Laviage. The house he helped us find had the perfect footprint for our family, but needed improvements to optimize space. Fortunately Jason was able to make our vision became reality as we now have a wonderful house with an open floorplan, game room for the kids and master bedroom with new bath and walk-in closets. He helped us at all phases of the project including layout and architectural changes, design ideas including tile, paint colors, and hardware, and overall support through the construction. He was always upfront with costs and we were in constant communication. We could not have picked a better partner and are 100% satisfied! Highly recommend!

Lisa & Jay

We worked with Jason to remodel our mid-century house in a way that preserved the retro flair while making it functional for a modern family. He understood our aesthetic and gave us great suggestions, like having a pull-out drawer for dog food and helping us think through paint colors. Jason kept the project on schedule and was easy to communicate with throughout. We enjoy our house so much more now!

The Clarke Family

Jason did a small project for us. He helped us design and built a new cabinet and counter for our kitchen, replace a window, and paint our house. Despite it being a small project, he paid a ton of personal attention to every detail, and ensured that we were completely satisfied. Everything was done on time and on budget. JL Custom Group workers went above and beyond, cleaning up the worksite every day so we could continue using our kitchen and our house. A few months later our new window frame had shifted out of place. Jason responded immediately and got it fixed promptly, with no further issues. We were thrilled with the results and wouldn’t hesitate to work with Jason again.

Pilar and Jorge H.

Working with Jason at JL Custom Group was great start to finish. Living in an older home we have worked with various contractors in the past on other jobs and suffered unfinished jobs, unreturned phone calls and poor management. JL Custom Group is different. No one has the vision, creativity, professionalism and execution like Jason Laviage and his team. JL Custom Group worked in our timeframe and our budget to deliver a product we love.

Michelle and Ben F.

Choosing Jason Laviage of JL Custom Group to renovate our house was a decision that I am very happy to have made. We love our beautiful home that Jason fully renovated and customized. My husband and I contracted to purchase our home from Jason prior to the renovation, and were able to work with him along the way to ensure that our home became exactly what we wanted it to be. Jason gave us the option of having as little or as much input as we liked. The process went extremely smoothly and stress-free on our end, given Jason’s incredible style and high quality work. Everyone who enters our home- both friends, family and housing professionals, rave about how beautiful it is. The independent inspector that I hired prior to purchase repeatedly commented on the high quality of work and attention to detail that went in to the renovation. After purchasing our home from Jason, he continued to check in to request any punch-list items and ensure that we were happy with our home. We are thrilled with our home and thank Jason and JL Custom Group for doing such a wonderful job.

Claire & Ben Metz

Working with Jason and JL Custom Group to develop our new home was one of the best decisions our family has made. After seeing the excellent job Jason did renovating my sister’s house, we decided to switch gears in our home search and work with Jason on a renovation. Jason found a house with perfect ‘bones’, then he and his crew tore it down to the studs and completely renovated everything exactly as we wanted it. The result is so much more than what we expected. We absolutely love everything about our home, and thoroughly enjoyed working with Jason throughout the renovation process. After six months in our house, we still sit and marvel at the transformation nearly every night; so thankful that we took a chance with Jason and created the perfect home for our family.

Celeste & Califf Cooper

We purchased our new home from Jason while he was about half-way through the renovation. We were able to work together with him to customize a lot of the features and accents of the house to our own tastes. Jason was very helpful with his suggestions and we were able to get the house that we always wanted. We would definitely work with Jason again in the future.

Garrett & Kelly Moran

JL Custom Group truly transformed our backyard into an oasis! With a perfect combination of his own creative vision and input from our own ideas and preferences, Jason turned our backyard into a place the entire family will relax, enjoy, and entertain. He was professional, honest, and timely and all of his sub-contractors were easy to communicate with and friendly. We are confident that the work is quality and was done right! We would highly recommend that anyone trust their home projects to JL Custom Group.

Rysse & Brian Goldfarb

My wife and I purchased a mid-century home in Meyerland that had very little work done since it was initially built. Everything inside the home was old and outdated. We really liked the design and structure of the house and purchased it knowing a large renovation project was needed. Neither of us are creative or good at being able to vision an area different from what is in front of our eyes. This was one of the main reasons JL Custom Group was selected. Of all the contractors we interviewed, they were the only ones that were able to sit down with us, listen to the ideas of what we were looking to accomplish and then provide suggestions, both on the construction side as well as the design side. The design side is what makes JL Custom Group unique. For anything you are trying to change, there are so many options. JL Custom Group was great at looking at an area, listening to what you’re looking to accomplish, provide suggestions on how to accomplish it and narrow down the options to select from. We are very happy with the results and have received numerous compliments. If you’re looking to do a renovation and need help making your vision a reality, or help with putting together your vision, JL Custom Group is the contractor for you.

Carley & Cory Giovanella

After searching for over 2 years for our “perfect home”, we came across a completely remodeled home in Westbury. We fell in love with the home instantly! The layout, color selections, location, finishes, etc. Not only did Jason (JL Custom Group) make the entire home buying process fairly easy, he was willing to work with us on some small requests that we had before moving in. After being in the house for over a year now, we can honestly say that he home was remodeled with quality products and craftsmanship. The few issues we’ve experienced have all been minor and anytime we had a question regarding the house (warranties, floors, appliances, etc.) Jason responded immediately and was very willing to coordinate with us a solution to resolve the matter. We added two new members (twin boy/girl) to our family 5 months ago and are so glad we chose this house as our first home! However, with that being said, we will be looking for a BIGGER home to accommodate our growing family in the not too distant future and will definitely see what projects Jason has to offer. We HIGHLY recommend JL Custom Group to anyone looking for a wonderfully remodeled home or seeking a contractor to deliver excellent workmanship on any home renovation project.

Mr. & Mrs. Mendoza

It was a wonderful experience to work with JL Custom group. We contacted them regarding our ideas for new bathrooms and they helped us by creating beautiful, functional and tranquil spaces. Help on design was given when asked for; workers were punctual and really, our project went without a hitch. We are so excited with what JL Custom group has created in our home and will definitely use them for our next project! 

Dena and Nils Magelssen

I appreciate the work that Jason and JL Custom Group has done for me. Jason’s sense of style is impeccable, and his attention to detail is outstanding. Jason took time to explain the process, set a date that worked for us both (and kept it), and cleaned up afterwards. It is nice to have a responsible, caring contractor take our neighborhood to the next level. I would recommend JL Custom Group to anyone! 

Cecelia Harris

Jason Laviage did a turnkey front of the house remodel for us. His vision, precision and efficient work made us very happy. We have been very happy with every facet of his work. Jason is also very friendly and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him as a contractor.
