What Customers are Saying About Rick Jacobson

Working with Rick has been fantastic! We are on our third project together and have really enjoyed every experience. He provides extremely high quality work and transparency to schedule, timeline and expectations. He has provided creative solutions on maximizing space in some of our smaller spaces and helped bring our visions to life. We have felt very comfortable with he and his team being in and out of our home while we aren’t there. It is clear he takes a lot of pride in his work and we are able to take that same pride in the projects we have had done in our home.


We remodeled a bath and added a bedroom to our lower level. The house was originally built in 1953 so this job was not without its challenges. Rick and his team were great to work with overcoming issues and staying within budget. We are veterans of multiple projects involving several different contractors and would definitely recommend Jacobson Construction.


If you are looking for a contractor that is honest, trustworthy, and efficient at time management, Rick Jacobson/Jacobson Construction is your answer. We were extremely pleased with his communications throughout the process, and loved the end product. This was particularly challenging since we were living in another state while Rick handled the project seamlessly. We would highly recommend him, and will use Rick for future opportunities!


Rick and his team did a wonderful job recreating our master bath into a relaxing retreat. Rick is honest, helpful, never pushy, and does a nice job communicating through every step of the project. His team arrived and worked hard every day. They were talented, professional, courteous and did a great job ensuring the job was done to to our liking. Each day the house was prepped (tarps, etc.) and cleaned up well. Rick was great to work with and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or use him again on future projects.


Jacobson Construction did a great job with our project. Excellent build quality, clean job site and showing up on a consistent schedule made the process enjoyable.

Mark & Cari

I hired Jacobson Construction to remodel my condo prior to my moving in. Rick was extremely helpful during the design process. He worked in close partnership with my interior designer to develop the project’s design and budget. He contributed several key design ideas. Rick skillfully managed the construction process, staying within budget save for one or two of the inevitable unknowns inherent in an older building remodel. Rick’s work and that of his subcontractors is first rate and I was completely satisfied with the result. I’ve had several people tell me I have the nicest looking unit in the building.


Rick was the first of 10 GC’s we met throughout the decision making process. We selected Rick because he was patient, knowledgable and had years of experience. We trusted him to renovate our ENTIRE home. There was not one space that he and his team didn’t touch. He helped us stay close to our target budget even when surprises popped up (you never know what you are going to find when you knock down walls). He thought outside of the box to save as much money as possible. He ALWAYS answered our text messages or phone calls promptly no matter how many questions or how late. In addition, it’s not often that you can say a GC’s subs are a pleasure to work with. Dave, Tony, Steve, Bill are all great. Overall, we are very pleased with his work. We will be calling Rick back to help us with phase 2. Thanks again Rick!


Rick is honest, easy to work with, and an overall nice guy. I was pregnant during the renovation and him and his team did everything they could to make sure it was done before our little one arrived. Rick was easy to contact and was very attentive in answering any and all of our questions regarding the project. We are amazed at the finished product and are so happy with it. In addition to all his coordination and effort on our kitchen and family room renovation there were some small painting projects around the house that me and my husband were going to do on our own and he was more than willing to offer us advice on what to use and some simple tips and tricks. Thanks to Rick and his team for a job well done and for a beautifully completed kitchen before our family gets a little bit bigger.


Rick and his crew did a great job for us! Rick is very attentive, thinks outside the box, and is committed to seeing the project through. Very pleased with the final outcome!!


I first contacted Rick when I was helping a design client of my own find a contractor to remodel his condo. The results were fantastic. Rick is a true professional, a great collaborator, a highly skilled and resourceful contractor. I have since referred him to other design clients knowing that he will represent the quality of work my clients expect.

I would happily hire Rick Jacobson again. He and his able team remodeled my old, ugly bathroom, and it is now a showpiece! Rick is honest, patient, attends to every detail, explains every step and every charge, cleans up the site daily, and is just overall a person of talent and character.


I contacted Jacobson Construction after seeing the work he did on my neighbors kitchen, basement and exterior. My house is 60 years old and was in need of new siding, windows and doors. After a year of contemplating what I should do and contacting other companies, I chose Jacobson Construction because of Rick’s experience, honesty and professionalism. He was very helpful assisting me in deciding styles and colors. Although the job took a little longer than expected, I was very pleased with Rick and his team. They were considerate, pleasant to work with, mindful of my questions and concerns, and went beyond the original scope of work.


Our project was a kitchen remodel including:
– new cupboards and countertops
– opening up space by cutting out a part of a wall
– relocating appliances and updating electrical and plumbing

We couldn’t be more pleased with our “new” kitchen and the craftsmanship of Rick and Jacobson Construction. They truly want you to be happy with the end results and we are. Rick is honest and dependable. He offered many helpful ideas and involved us in all decisions in the project. Jacobson Construction continually modeled respect towards our home and our time. They cleaned up every night and kept us up to date with their schedule.

I would give Jacobson Construction the highest recommendation possible. We will definitely use Jacobson Construction again when we remodel a bathroom.
Rick’s ideas and recommendations led us to a much better plan than we originally envisioned. He was a great partner and was respectful of our decision making process. When it came to the budget we were incredibly impressed with the transparency provided. The entire crew was extremely respectful, courteous, and trustworthy. In addition to the high quality work, we were also happy that the project came in on time and on budget. We will definitely use Rick again for future projects.


My home is 60 years old and was in need of some minor repairs as well as an updated look. Having worked with Rick in the past on both interior and exterior projects I knew that he would help me find the ‘look’ that I wanted, and then ensure that it was done in a timely manner. He is the consummate professional. Not only is he creative, but his knowledge of structure and his attention to detail are superb. He always stretches my original plans with either new materials or new applications. For this project he suggested taking out the red brick, shaping the wall under the bow window added years before and using architectural stone across the front of the house. All very good ideas! And then topped it off by putting pavers on the front step.

I am thrilled with the results and have gotten numerous positive comments from the neighbors! Rick is a skilled and passionate contractor. I have recommended him to many others.


Jacobson Construction has performed the following home improvements over the 22 years we have owned our home: 4-season sun porch addition, full basement finishing, including bedroom, bar/kitchen, wine room, furnace repositioning and custom workshop, full bathroom, rec/TV room, reading nook, and 3-station study/computer room; full kitchen remodel including new appliances, custom cabinets and granite, stone floors; 3-car to 4-car heated/insulated garage with second-story private balcony; and complete re-build of our basement after water damage (failed sump pump).

Last summer our battery back-up sump failed during a 3-day power outage, and Rick Jacobson and his team again rebuilt the entire basement, with even better finishes and granite replacing the old countertops in the study room. (Now I have a whole-home generator.) His work ethic is without equal, and he’s honest about both time and cost. (You can go with that bid that is 10% less, but the “add” and “change” orders will kill you and eat up 10+%, so Rick staying on target and on-bid actually saves you money and headaches).

He’s the real deal and will continue to do all my jobs at home and in my workplace. He and his team clean up after themselves, and the actual work is superb. I’m a plastic surgeon so I sweat the small stuff, and so does Rick. There may be others that claim to be as good, but Jacobson delivers consistent and quality results you can depend on. He stands behind his work and is honest and dependable. What else can I say–call Jacobson.

Dick and Sami

Rick Jacobson came to us with high recommendations from an individual who expects nothing short of perfection.

Rick’s project for us was to replace our very old windows. First, he guided us through the selection and ordering process. Then he and his experienced crew showed up on time and as scheduled, going about their business efficiently installing the beautiful windows. Rick was very hands-on throughout the project and kept us advised on the status of the project. His crew was friendly, neat and very nice to have around.

We love the open feeling we have with the new windows, as well as appreciating our lower heat bills. We hope this will be the first of our planned updates to our home that Jacobson Construction completes. 

Lynn & Jan

“I have had the pleasure to know Rick Jacobson for almost two decades. During that time Rick and his team of skilled workers have executed a variety of projects for me and all have been done with precision and in a friendly and timely manner.

Projects have included replacement of four skylights at my office condominium, along with siding and foundation repairs; a lake home project including eight new skylight installations and a complete kitchen makeover with cupboards, countertops, flooring, lighting, plumbing and appliances.

Rick Jacobson has the experience to solve whatever surprise may come his way during a project with skill and ingenuity.

Whatever your project may be, I am proud to recommend Rick Jacobson and his crew with unbridled enthusiasm. In short, he’s the best of the best, bar none.”

Sincerely, James

“I wanted to send you a long overdue email about the great work you did here at Arbor Therapy Center. We are so happy with how it turned out. I love the wall colors, carpet, cabinets, etc.

Also, the soundproofing is AMAZING! (Rick used denim insulation made from ground-up blue jeans.) We were just talking about how we can’t hear a peep from each other’s offices. Confidentially is incredibly important to me, and you helped make that happen here!

Thanks again, Rick. I appreciate your work so much and would definitely recommend you to others.”


“I don’t know that I have ever met such a gifted contractor, artist and craftsman as Rick Jacobson.

I first met Rick when I was soliciting bids on a basement bathroom remodel of a 1940’s house. I had no idea at the time that Rick also lived in my neighborhood, I just set out to get at least three bids. His estimate arrived somewhere in the middle of the pack, but what he talked about doing was much more creative and far superior to the other’s plans. He is a self admitted “problem solver” at heart (though I would call him a visionary) and he worked wonders with the space provided.

This guy truly delivers as promised, is honest, forthright and committed to understanding your needs and desires. He commands a meticulous crew.

As if it couldn’t get any better, he educates and allows us wanna-be “do it yourselfers” to participate!

 I would highly recommend this gentleman and hope to hire him again real soon.”


“I was so impressed with his creativity. The space he had to work with was small with low ceilings. Not to mention the house was built in the late 40’s and thus he had to deal with some pretty dated plumbing. In the end the space feels bigger and roomier even with the addition of a shower that never existed before.

I will add that Rick was very conscientious about keeping the area clean. He was also thoughtful about putting equipment away for we were living in the house during the construction. I felt he knew the invasiveness of the project and was very respectful to minimize it from his end.”


“I hired the company for a bathroom and basement family room remodel. They were always on time in the morning and only took an hour break in the day for lunch. Rick had some ideas for adding some closets in spaces that weren’t being utilized. It was very appreciated in my older home.

They were very efficient, friendly, knowledgeable, clean and patient with my questions. The cost came in at the proposed budget and there was a detailed, itemized account for the work and materials.

I would highly recommend them.”
