CONSTRUCTION

WHO WE ARE

J. A. Long Construction Company is a Boulder-based general contractor firm, operating since 1994, specializing in custom home building, renovations, and remodels.  Project development is a collaborative process.  For us, this means that the project itself gets three advocates

...the client, the architect, and the builder...each independently empowered to champion a unique set of parameters critical to the project's success.

The Client advocates for their needs, present and future, financial realities, and for all the ways they want the building to serve them.  The Architect advocates for the project's aesthetics, volumetrics, spaces, durability and energy efficiency. The Builder advocates for the project's durability, safety cost containment, and the building's efficiency.

In other words, the client dreams, the architect designs, the contractor builds, forming an integrated and essential team, that brings the client full circle to live their dream.

OUR APPROACH

With our team approach in mind, we believe in rigorous project management:  on-time and on-budget projects delivered through clear communication, open books, and project management acumen.

Regular site meetings include the client, architect, site supervisor, and project manager to review project status, and to ensure the work is moving along smoothly.

At J.A. Long Construction, we are driven to create and maintain 

meticulous  control over the project's objectives.  The pre-construction phase includes developing a budget, confirming the scope of work, and creating a schedule.  The construction phase requires attention to a high level of craftsmandship and detail throughout the building process, along with continuous monitoring of the budget and schedule.

DREAM, DESIGN, BUILD, LIVE!

TESTIMONIALS

We are extremely pleased with the work that J.A. Long Construction did on our complicated remodel. They were professional in all aspects, their estimates were accurate, and they worked aggresively to address all those fun things that don't go exactly as planned in a remodel!

Dean and Becky Leffingwell

Our house took two years to build because of its architectural complexity and unique materials.  Eight years later, we continue to be incredibly happy with our house, in large part because of Jerry.   He was a joy to work with, and as the project moved forward, we were always confident in his ability to help us realize our dream house.  He did not disappoint.  He works with the best craftsmen and subs in the business and never accepted less than perfection. His attention to detail along with a deep knowledge and understanding of all facets of construction were unparalleled in our experience on multiple past projects.  Always calm and professional in his interactions with us, it's easy to see how he got the best out of everyone who worked on the house.  We highly recommend Jerry.

We are thrilled with our extensive remodel completed by J.A. Long Construction. Jerry provided proactive communication on budget and design decisions throughout the process, and was helpful in providing insights and advice on project trade-offs.  Jerry and his team were highly present on the job site, providing a steady handle on the details as well as the big picture.  We have now been in our home for several years and are thrilled with the outcome and the durability of craftsmanship. Jerry has always been responsive and available to us for any follow up questions and advice.

We contacted Jerry Long to handle a kitchen and master bath remodel on our parents’ house. Jerry’s efforts in transforming the spaces into extraordinary living spaces were greatly appreciated.  J.A. Long Construction’s attention to detail and extensive network of experienced trades, together make it easy for us to highly recommend their services.

We were very pleased with the work J.A. Long Construction did on our house. If it wasn’t for their attention to detail, it would have never turned out the way it did. After working with Jerry Long for more than two years, we appreciate the unsurpassed builder/ client relationship that was formed.

We had the pleasure of working with Jerry Long and his team during the construction of our custom home in Boulder.  Our project had many moving parts to it, as we were having Jerry construct both a home and an agricultural barn on a 37-acre parcel of land that had not had a residence on it in approximately 15 years.  To complicate things, we were building during the Covid-19 pandemic!  

These factors made our project a bit more challenging and slowed us down a bit.  However, we were extremely grateful to be working with someone with Jerry’s experience.  There were numerous complications, government regulations, and other factors that had to be managed very carefully.  Jerry’s decades of working with architecture firms, dozens of subcontractors, and county authorities gave my wife and I a great deal of comfort.

With this project, we set to build our dream home.  When the architecture firm showed us the design for the two buildings, we never would have imagined that the finished product would turn out as good as the plans and renderings.  In fact, the finished product is not only better than the renderings, but better than we could have imagined.  Every person who comes in the house and barn are constantly amazed by the extraordinarily high build quality and attention to detail of every single aspect of the home.

We could not be more grateful to J.A. Long Construction and would highly recommend them for any building project someone might be considering.  Thank you, Jerry!
