Does the Contractor Do Quality Work?

Does the Contractor Use Quality Material?

Janke Construction only uses “quality” materials. Our years of experience in the construction industry have convinced us that it doesn’t pay to use cheaper, inferior products. In addition, we know that quality is not determined by price alone, it takes experience to judge the quality that will ensure a long-lasting end product.



Does the Contractor Use Licensed & Qualified Subcontractors?

Janke Construction holds their subcontractors to the same high standards we observe for our self. We will only use licensed, qualified subcontractors.

  • “We would recommend Janke Construction and their subcontractors to everyone.” – Todd & Gwen Richards, Bountiful



Does the Contractor Pay its Subcontractors, Keeping You “Lien” Free?

It’s a sad situation when a homeowner has paid the contractor only to find out a subcontractor has not been paid and has taken a lien against the home. Unfortunately, homeowners are legally obligated to pay such liens and must then take legal recourse to try to collect that payment from their contractor. This is why it is so important to hire a contractor who is known to be trustworthy and honest. Janke Construction’s subcontractors like working for us because they get paid in full and on time.



Will the Project be Completed in a Timely Manner?

Janke Construction will give you an estimate of when the project will be completed and will make every effort to meet that date. In the construction industry it is unavoidable that certain things will affect the completion time including availability of materials, weather, and unforeseen circumstances. Janke Construction will make sure you are updated every step of the way and you will be well informed of any revisions to the completion date, if necessary.



Does the Contractor Honor Warranty Issues?

Part of Janke Construction’s commitment to quality is their follow-up with warranty issues. We deal with the suppliers and subcontractors to obtain warranty servicing for you.
