Testimonials

I was extremely impressed by the sophistication of Eric's presentation which gave me the confidence in EJD Construction to select them above all other contractors I interviewed. I was looking for quality and professionalism at a reasonable price. Their price was very competitive and they showed exceptional knowledge and experience in all aspects of my project. They were very informative and helped me understand every process that went into my entire project. Eric even provided me with visual examples of materials and products from tiling to fixtures. They were always prompt and very courteous to my property as they provided me with plastic coverings for my furnishings and they always cleaned up there work area. The work was completed within the projected time frame. I was very happy with how beautiful everything looked especially my new frameless shower door that Eric suggested.

We contacted EJD Construction in late August 2009 to schedule an estimate. Mr. Eric Scarborough arrived punctually and well prepared with materials including licensures & insurance, letters of reference, and exhibits of previous jobs. Within about one week Eric delivered a detailed written Proposal & Estimate. We made a # of modifications to the original proposal and Eric was very responsive in working with us. As we were living in another state while the work was being done, it was very important for us to select a contractor who was comfortable communicating by email & telephone. We signed a contract with EJD for the remodel in early October 2009 agreeing that time was not of the essence and anticipating a completion date near year's end. The work was finished by Christmas. Mr. Scarborough and his workers were competent and professional throughout the entire process. Eric generates confidence as he discusses his work. & was helpful in offering suggestions based on his extensive experience in construction. We would heartily recommend Mr. Scarborough and his company for your home remodel. We contacted EJD Construction in late August 2009 to schedule an estimate.

Our home in North Miami is over fifty years old. The bathroom had never been remodeled. Not only did the bathroom need to be completely gutted but we also needed a new water line pulled from the street. My wife and I had three or four contractors come in to look the job over but it was Eric Scarborough who impressed us with his knowledge of both what had to be done and his familiarity with the North Miami Building and Zoning Department. He completed the job with only minor cost overruns pretty much within the time allocated. If I have any criticism it would be with the language skills of some of his employees. During any remodeling job there are inevitable changes/modifications that will come up as the work is in progress. Being able to communicate with any particular worker while they are on the job is essential to avoid small misunderstandings developing into time consuming and costly do over’s. My wife and I are very happy with the completed bathroom. We would gladly recommend EJD Construction for any work you need done, especially if you live in North Miami.

I contacted Eric regarding a property that I owned that was vacant and I wanted to build a new house. Eric listened to my vision and produced comprehensive proposal. I was most impressed with his knowledge of construction and the detail in which he went about explaining it. He produced a floor plan and a 3D rendering of the house so that I could see what it would look like before it was built. After the plans were approved EJD Construction built the house in about 4 months. That was pretty fast considering a house was built down the street and it took them about 10 months to finish. The quality of the project excellent and my kitchen was magnificent. My wife loves the bathrooms! I have no problem recomending EJD Construction.

I've used Eric before so I knew that I could trust him. The contract went smooth as usual, I just thought that the price was a little high. He did give a discount after I complained :-). The job was done in about 2 weeks, just before Thanksgiving. I pressured him a lot about the date and he preformed great!

We had them submit a proposal for kitchen remodeling. This followed a previous bid about 1 1/2 years prior on a more extensive project which we deferred and down-sized until now. We are still very impressed with Eric. His bid was very competitive. We decided to use another company only because we felt that company better fit our remodeling concerns. Eric and EJD are, however, still very much on our "do call" list for probable addition projects.

Mr. Scarborough arrived promptly at 2pm. He introduced himself and asked what I liked about being an Angie's List member. I told him that I felt a bit more confident that I would not be ripped off and that I coud trust in receiving good service and workmanship and if not I could have some by filing a report of my experience. I then showed Mr. Scarborough the kitchen. He asked me about my ideas, preferences in materials etc. He then told me some ways that he could make the space more efficient and functional and what materials were available through his suppliers. He answered additional questions on lighting and the upgrade of the water heater to a tankless water heater and also the electrical panel. He then proceeded to take measurements and take notes. The visit lasted approximately an hour. He told me that he woud email the proposal and design plans in a little more than a week( I received them in 10 days). He encouraged me to call with any additional questions that I may have.

After some of the worst contracting and remodeling experiences ever, I checked Angies List, crossed by fingers and contacted Eric and EDJ for a total bathroom remodel that we really needed. Eric is the owner and Licensed GC of EDJ. He promptly returned my call, paid a home visit, provided references, copies of his license and even arranged for a visit of a nearby home he was almost finished working on. His estimates and payment schedules were fair and reasonable. He even cautioned us that given the age of our home, it was likely that the estimates for electric work would run over once he began demolition and prepared us for the possibility of further expenses to get through City Code Enforcement. Work began promptly, quickly and professionally. Our remodel is a very contemporary, high end European bathroom with expensive tile, stone and fixtures purchased in Europe. In 30 days he completed the job and work was signed off on by Miami Shores inspectors. We are thrilled with the result and will definitely use Eric and EDJ for our future projects.

"Eric responded to my calls and concerns immediately.  My kitchen is absolutely beautiful.  Eric did a fantastic job. He was concerned with how happy we were with his work, and he tried very hard to really make me happy with the new room he gave me.  It is totally beautiful, and I am completely happy with every aspect of the job he did.  i would have him do the work for me again with no doubt at all.  The entire kitchen went very smoothly and easily, and it is PERFECT!!

I discovered E J D Construction Contractors and Investment Corp.  thru Angie's List.  Mr. Eric Scarborough contacted  me and we met.  I was very impressed of his presentation and knowledge of construction.  He answered my questions with ease and said that he would deliver the plans and estimate.  After reviewing the plans and estimate I felt comfortable accepting it.  The work began and even though I had a medical emergency and was admitted to the hospital for seven days; the work continued  I felt at ease all the time I was in the hospital.  When I returned home I was more convinced that Eric Scarborough and Crew were very competent.  The work was finished and I was amazed.  The finished kitchen was above any of my highest expectations.  I highly recommend Mr. Eric Scarborough and Crew  of E J D Construction Contractors.

I contacted Mr. Scarborough through Angie's List. He had a very informative presentation. He answered my questions thoroughly and made great suggestions. I felt comfortable with him from the start and he had a very honest persona about him. He quickly sent me a comprehensive proposal via e-mail and what i liked most about his approach is that he was not pressuring me to sign or using gorilla tactics like other salesman before him. I collected 3 bids and took my time studying them and makeing adjustments. I felt others were getting bothered but Mr. Scarborough remained patient and as a matter of fact, he kept assuring me that it was ok and that his main objective was to make sure that our contract was exactly as I wanted it. He did not act like a sales person, he acted like a friend. Also, other contractor sales persons could not answer technical questions w/o having to ask someone else while Mr. Scarborough almost always knew the answers which also gave me great confidence. The project was a kitchen remodel and an addition. I changed a couple of things during the project that probaly would have cost me a lot of money but found ways and made suggestions to keep cost down while still providing me with what I wanted. This was a rare case of the Service was just as good as the first impression. He wasn't even the cheapest but I'm certainly glad that I went with EJD Construction. The job was completed in just 3 months after the plans were ready and his communication was great! I definately recommend EJD Construction.

It is easy to work with Eric, the general contractor. He was fair and involved in the work. There were delays, but in general they were not because of him. We are satisfied with the work done.

A few specific issues that made this a more challenging job. I am from out of town and needed to work with someone punctual and did what was promised on a reasonable schedule. Eric Scarborough and EJD Construction made this very easy.
Eric Scarborough came to see me on a weekend (as this was best for me) to evaluate the job and provide a very detailed estimate and also review the process and explain covered and uncovered costs. He also discussed the permitting process and expectations.The contract was negotiated and the price was  fair, but not the cheapest.  Also,  that same weekend he brought in his cabinet team to immediately get that started once a contract was negotiated. He was very easy to contact and discuss options and issues during the entire process.
He kept the construction moving well and big stops were essentially permits and inspections. He had a very fair payment schedule essentially as items were completed then payment was made.
The work quality was very good. As always there were issues that came up when we inspected the work, and felt it was not what we desired and he ALWAYS made good to fix/repair or change to make it correct. Due to a poor tile sub contractor, the floor tile was not adequate and he also felt was not up to the quality he desires, and he replaced this at his cost. Clearly it would have been better to not have that issue, but some will always come up. The most important thing to me was that he understood our desires and he made things right. This was without any battle. He did it because it was the right thing to do. In the end the project took about 5 months and the final product was fantastic. He also stayed on budget in general. We did have to put in a new AC and air handler as the old one ended up not working.
In summary, am very pleased with the condominium and Eric was very easy to work with and clearly is interested in quality work, punctuality and customer satisfaction.  I gave him all "A"'s  for the final product.

You can't go wrong with EJD, living in South Fla there are a lot of contractors that are just looking out for their own interest but not EJD. The whole process was overseen by Eric (Owner) and he was very fair and straight forward with me and answered all my questions (I asked a lot). Eric returned all my calls and text messages (yes text messages) Eric has a great team that can work on anything that needs work done. Besides the bathroom remodel I also had an AC pipe leak that needed patch work and EJD handle that to within the same time frame of the bathroom remodel. In closing EJD is a great company that can and will handle any problem(s)/upgrade(s) within your home the right way and not skip any steps.

Overall it all went very good, when we had a problem with some issues in the bathroom Eric and his brother took care of if for us.  Eric oversaw all the details and we were very pleased with the results.

We contracted them; they did a lot of work for us and we were very happy. The man spelled it out exactly how he was going to do it, and he did exactly what he said he was going to do. He always answered his telephone which impressed me. Anytime I called him he always answered his phone. Every morning when he was going to send someone out to do some work he called me first. He let me know what they were going to do for the day. He let me know people are coming and they are on their way, and they will be leaving at noon etc. That impressed me completely. I was very, very happy with them and their work was very good. He even told us how long it was going to take and they were in and out within the month. They knocked down a wall and built it up again three feet away. They made one room larger for us, and when he said what he was going to to they did it. My husband had a little complaint about one of the workers that came in and did some plastering. Basically what happened is they didn't realize what they were doing and had to do this. My husband said I want you to do this. It was late in the afternoon and they worked later then expected to. When he spoke to the owner when they called he said there was a problem. They had slopped some of the stuff down on our rugs. The guy said, no problem I'll send out Stanley Steamer. Every time we had a problem which was just two the guy was right there to correct it. They would walk around outside to make sure they didn't leave anything unsightly or that you could trip over even though they were working inside.

EDJ was called to give Quote for bathroom remodel. They responded on time and gave quote. While on site EDJ did not measure anything. They looked at the bath and discussed what was wanted and gave quote stating these jobs are all the same and after many years of doing this we don't even need to measure.

From the time the owner of the business (Eric) showed up for an estimate, there was a sense of greater professionalism than what I have come to deal with via previous contractors.  I told him what I wanted done and he contributed additional ideas to materialize my vision while showing references of his current and previous work.  He emailed an estimate to me within 24 hours and we agreed to start the project which comprised of complete remodeling of an original 1979 master bathroom including relocation of toilet and conversion of adjacent walk-in closet into a nursery room with an integrated sliding glass door closet.  I was able to communicate with Eric on a regular basis and he even came by on a Saturday just to gauge the process, inspect the work that was completed, and accommodate revisions that I may have had in mind.  The project finished on time and within budget so great job overall and I will use again.

They were very professional and on time; everything was okay.   I didn’t use them and I don’t know how the cost was; that’s why I’m looking at other options.  They called me the same day or the next day and we set up an appointment.  There is a chance I will use them in the future.

"There were minor bumps, like the marble installation taking longer than i thought, my ordering the wrong part for the shower fixture and the vanity weighing 400 lbs and it needing to be moved upstairs. Eric was always available and took care of things as well as keeping me informed throughout the process. We had a tight time frame, we were leaving on vacation for two weeks and they began work three and a half weeks before we left. Even though I was worried at times they wouldn't finish before we left they did. And they took care of all the small details that make the bathroom look so great.

"I purchased the Angie's List Big Deal for a custom set of kitchen remodel designs from EJD Construction in March 2011; everyone from their office was extremely prompt in responding to my request to set up an appointment and communcating in general. Eric came out and took the measurements and all information to do the design, and was very polite and professional. The turnaround time on the design was very quick as well. Unfortunately I had to set the project aside due to other urgent matters, but I would definitely recommend EJD based on my experience.

EJD Construction Contractors & Investment Corp. were fine, they were great. They came out, the drew us a plan and we got an estimate from them but we eventually got someone else to do the job because their price was a little higher. We had to go around when they were available and when they were not but we got to have them come within a week. He was running a little late but that was no problem because he called. The next time we do construction, I will definitely ask them for a bid. They were very professional.

Paul H

"Eric and his brother John are the kind of responsive and dependable contractors you always want but never get in Miami; they call you back, their estimates are fair and accurate, and their work is of the very highest standard. They completed structural work for us in the garage to enable installation of a replacement garage door and they went beyond what was expected of them. The work included rebuilding part of the structure, including introducing proper reinforcing, and plaster/stucco. It was a small job by construction standards but Eric made sure we were treated with respect and courtesy. Great job, definitely will use them again.

"First of all, understand that I came to my project from a slightly different perspective ? I actually am an attorney for a large, international General Contractor.  And so not only do I understand construction  in general better than most people, but I also have some idea of how to minimize risk on projects from a contractual perspective.  Most importantly, however, I understand the need for transparency and honest communication with your contractor throughout the project.

MacAdam G
MIAMI/FT. LAUDERDALE

The construction went very well from start to finish. I was kept up to date with each step of the construction. The guys working on the construction were friendly and very cooperative. Whatever questions I had were answered in detail. The construction was able to pass inspection with no major problems. The minor problems that occurred were due to the fact the house was a very old building and had to be brought up to code. I was very pleased with the finished product and will recommend this company to my friends and relatives who need their services.

Emily D

"Eric was very easy to work with even from a distance ( we did most of the coordination from out of state) . Generally punctual and always available for questions and great ideas when issues came up. He was very concerned for quality and our satisfaction. He always would follow up. He was trustworthy.  Would without question use him again.

"Eric came and gave me a quote for an addition.  He was on time and professional.  He also wasn't afraid to be honest and throw out some numbers and others were afraid to do.  
Eric also too the time to take me to a project he was doing.  I saw the quality of work he did and it was amazing.  All in, we spent 2 hours together and I was impressed. 
I haven't made my choice yet, but he up high on the list."

"From the time Eric came to give me an estimate everything fell into place. I personally wasn't around (I travel for work) but my mother and nieces boyfriend was at my house while the work was being done. They were very impressed with the way that the work was being done. They were on time did the job in a professional and timely manner. And when I came home the after product was a very well done job. It was blended in to match the rest of the house perfectly. Eric and Louis and there crew did an excellent job on how I wanted it done.

"I shopped around a little before deciding to work with Eric. I found his price to be competitive with the other quotes. But he was a standout when it came to the high end, beautiful, custom cabinetry and his attention to detail in our plans. He also showed us a lot of photos of previous work.  He was friendly to work with and and accommodated every one of my requests. He also offered some really great ideas I had not thought of.
Although it took more time than expected, it was well worth the wait! My kitchen and bath are even more beautiful than I had ever thought possible in my budget.

Katie W

Everything went very well. I had only one complaint on how long it took as it took a long time. Eric was very responsive every time I had a question or some concerns he acted on quickly. He also apologized as no one was living at the house at that time and it was easy for him to just let it go but it took a long time but the work was beautiful. I was so happy in the end and I don’t regret working with him because whenever we had a concern he responded. The job was done beautifully. It is a beautiful kitchen and a beautiful bathroom.
