A Letter From The Owner

Welcome to J.T. McDermott Remodeling Contractors, where we understand that remodeling your home is a creative and collaborative process. To us, home remodeling is more than blueprints and construction. We have a deep awareness of what distinguishes a house from a home and, since 1993, we’ve brought creativity and passion to home remodeling projects of every size and scope.

Along with experience, reliability, and integrity, we pride ourselves on our unique ability to integrate your needs with a seamless, stress-free remodeling process. Our entire team is committed to treating you and your home with the respect you both deserve. From design concept to construction completion, we work hard to develop an authentic personal connection with our clients, helping them make informed design decisions that add value to their home and their lives.

At J.T. McDermott, we believe your project is unique to you, and through the years we’ve developed a process that’s designed to meet your specific goals and bring your vision to life.

We’re proud of our outstanding reputation in the community, and believe we offer a level of craftsmanship and teamwork that is unmatched in the St. Louis Metro area.

Whether you’re an empty-nester ready to put in that updated kitchen, or a growing family in need of more space, we’re here to help you make the remodeling process an enjoyable one. We understand how overwhelming it can be – you may have some reasonable concerns and wonder if it’s even worth it to remodel in the first place. What will it cost? Will I be comfortable with the people who will be in my home? Where do I even start? Our job is to take you from apprehension to confidence in our ability to get the job done right.

Our priority is finishing your remodel on time and on budget. We measure our success by our clients’ satisfaction, which is reflected in their testimonials, repeat business, and referrals. Visiting our clients in their finished home is always a celebration of an enjoyable, collaborative experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the advantages of design-build remodeling over a more traditional approach?

    That’s a great question, and one of the most popular ones we get asked. The answer is straightforward: since we design what we build, clients come to us for a more streamlined, one-stop process. Before you start your own remodeling project, asking the right questions will help you make informed decisions in which you can feel confident about.

    Is it even worth it to remodel?

    The value of a remodel depends on the outcome you’re looking to achieve. Remodeling for resale value can help move the home faster and make it more appealing to a wider audience. Remodeling to add a level or improve the function of a room lets you personalize the space and offers great rewards through updating appliances, fixtures and finishes; creating a space that is efficient and easy to use; and addressing any special needs. We believe that remodeling your home should, first and foremost, be about your family living comfortably in a house that suits everyone’s needs. If there are things missing that would make your lives easier and more efficient, a remodel is a good option. It’s up to you to decide whether a remodel is worth it. Two things to consider are whether you plan to stay in the home for a certain amount of time, and if it’s worth the effect the remodeling process itself would have on your family’s daily life.

  • How much will it cost?

    Cost depends on the project itself. The price can change dramatically by changing the scope of work, completing it in stages and by the material selections. A larger, more in depth project can affect several things in your home that you may not have realized would be part of the scope of work. For example, if you’re remodeling a master bath but your water heater is 20 years old, there’s an opportunity to replace it while you’re having the construction done. If you’re concerned about costs, creating a scope of work that adheres to a budget can help control them and give you peace of mind.

    My situation is an uncommon one. Can it even be done?

    These are the challenges upon which we thrive. We have seen lots of interesting workmanship and design features. Almost anything can be done, it’s just a matter of cost and timeline. More complicated projects will obviously require more time and materials which are the main cost drivers. That said, our goal is to help you make the right decisions, and occasionally that means not doing a project. Our long-term goal is relationships built on trust and confidence, and we believe an honest answer is always the right one.
