Company History

In the summer of 2006, a hardworking and resourceful young man named Jason Lajeunesse founded a small building & remodeling company in Southern New Hampshire as a general contractor. Inspired by his father’s career work in the industry, and needing to reinvent himself in a tough economy, Jason boldly founded JDL Building & Remodeling as a solopreneur.

By doing quality work, being extremely communicative with clients, and keeping his promises, Jason soon developed a small and successful business.

Three years later, Jason’s wife’s cousin Charles Knight left his own carpentry start-up to join JDL as Jay’s “right-hand man.” The addition of Chuck enabled key support for the growth of the organization.

Today, JDL is a respected full-service Seacoast firm that employs an impressive 20 full-time staffers, and continues to grow.

By focusing on the basics of honesty, thoroughness, and conscientiousness, plus going beyond to help those less fortunate, JDL Building & Remodeling has forged a reputation for best-in-class professionalism and community leadership.
