We Understand Craftsmanship

Artisan projects and craftsmanship are part of the LeVeque DNA at every level. “Quick and done” is simply never a part of the Jim LeVeque process. Jim’s scrupulous work shows in even the smallest of details. Intricate millwork, patterned stone flooring, an unusual application of materials, the addition of an arch to accentuate a doorway…all of it combines for the LeVeque signature touch!

Careful attention is always given to fit a project seamlessly into an established neighborhood, as if it had been there for years. No matter how authentic the production of a period style may be, a myriad of carefully researched, modern amenities have been incorporated to serve current lifestyle needs. Occasionally matching materials for historic or vintage buildings and homes are not available or cost prohibitive in production channels. Jim LeVeque has the expertise to recreate matching cabinetry, doors, moldings and the like to blend the old with the now. Honoring tradition while creating new living or work spaces is just one example of Jim’s unique approach as a craftsman.

We were so impressed with Jim LeVeque Remodeling's work product and business style, we were prepared to wait as long as it took to fit us into their project schedule. They always listened to our priorities, shared their knowledge and research on the topic at hand, and then let us make an informed decision with great data. Jim often came up with creative solutions that ended up giving us an even better finished product that we could ever have envisioned. We just love that both projects have generated that "wow" factor when guests walk in! The Jim LeVeque Remodeling staff and subcontractors are truly exceptional, and we feel there is not one we would not have at our table for dinner. We wouldn’t consider any other general contractor! - Chris and Dick Bertrand (Sierra Madre, CA)
I am most grateful that I met Jim LeVeque when I bought my house. I was working off of my inspection report and my own ideas to make my new house a home and I was overwhelmed! Jim helped me phase the work in my house in a logical manner and according to my budget. Jim guided me through several successful remodeling projects and each one resulted in the beautiful vision I had for my home. My home is also an investment and the projects that Jim LeVeque Remodeling has completed have added value beyond my expectations. I will always use Jim LeVeque Remodeling for my projects and I am also pleased to call Jim my friend. - Monica C. (Pasadena, CA)
We have been very blessed here at Mater Dolorosa Passionist Retreat Center, to have had Jim LeVeque Remodeling as the master builders of two very special projects. The first entailed the renovation of a very important meeting area; the second, a partial renovation of the living areas for the Passionist Community. In every way, Jim LeVeque Remodeling did an outstanding job, taking great care and giving amazing creative detail to the entire job from start to finish. Not only is their work done well, but the imagination of Jim LeVeque Remodeling makes the projects event better than initially imagined. - Rev. Patrick Brennan, CP (Director, Mater Dolorosa Passionist Retreat Center)
