JS Builders specializes in building apartments, condos, and senior care facilities. In addition to our focus on building systems and interior finishes, we pay special attention to the quality control and cost management that are critical to successful housing development whether it is intended for renters or buyers, families or seniors.

We provide cost comparisons on alternative structural, plumbing, heating, electrical systems and architectural assemblies. The following is an outline of components that we investigate.

Anything that has possible alternative ways of being done is explored to be sure the owner can make sound decisions based on cost, durability, quality and warranty factors.
