Our project included knocking down a wall, expanding the kitchen into the once dining room, 10 foot island, downdraft vent for a Wolf stove, TV, new cabinets, etc. 

John and his project manager Todd were there for me, and would answer my calls immediately. When something went wrong, they were "on it" immediately, and remedied it quickly. Todd, his project manager, had a detailed plan. I worked closely with him on deliverables, theirs and ours, to make sure we purchased things to keep the project on schedule.

We are so happy with the way the project turned out and really appreciated John's work and his professionalism, plus his “can do” attitude!

Thanks for all the fine work you’ve done for me over the years, and especially on this house. We had a going away gathering Sunday and everyone had such a good time in the space and raves about the remodel. I especially appreciate the practical solutions like the attic. I can always count on your common sense to solve a problem…


We wanted our old (ca 1915) single family detached garage torn down and replaced with a larger and more functional garage / workshop. We found JP Whitney doing a similar project in our Shasta-Hanchette neighborhood, liked the quality of work we saw, talked with John Whitney and his project manager, Todd Lazetera, and ultimately signed a contract with JP Whitney to take on our garage rebuild…


JP Whitney Construction did a complete remodel of our home in 2009. The project was completed on budget and on time, and went quite smoothly without a single hitch. Whitney Construction works with top-notch subcontractors and stands behind their work 100%. Our project manager was always accessible, kept us on track and answered all our questions…

I worked with John and Todd to fully renovate three bathrooms as well as some others. Through 2-3 month project period, I very much enjoyed working with John and Todd. They did a great job with nice finish, and delivered the work on time. If you are looking for quality work, JP Whitney is definitely the right contractor to consider.


We hired JPW to do a Kitchen and Bathroom remodel to our 1940s house and we were very happy with the work done as well as with John and his crew.

I hired JP Whitney to fix a 20 year plus leaking problem. They accurately diagnosed the issue and professionally fixed it. Throughtout, they were responsive, helpful and friendly. John Whitney was personally involved at all times. I highly recommend them.


John has successfully completed two major home renovation projects for me. I recommend him highly for his knowledge, experience, and transparency. John is a great teacher and thoughtfully explains the pros and cons of every nuance of design, construction, and finish work.

JPW is a person of the highest integrity with a commitment to high quality. He frequently visited our job site to insure our total satisfaction. Very professional staff and subs. Was very accommodating to our change requests. I have recommended him to three friends in the market for remodeling their residences.

Hank Gauthier

I received 3 bids for a kitchen remodel and JP Whitney was about in the middle. What “sold” me upfront was his “can do” attitude, that he would build anything we needed (but he leaned on us and our designer to tell him WHAT to build as opposed to him pushing on what we should do. Which I very much appreciated)…

Suzanne Smith

We highly recommend JP Whitney Construction. You will be in good hands with John and Todd. Your remodeling project will be done on time and on budget. We are happy with the results and enjoy our beautiful new home.

Marie Atkins

From the involvement early on of a structural engineer to shed light on our options (considering the load-bearing walls we wanted to eliminate), to the help with design and finishing ideas, we were pleased with their organized approach, sound recommendations, and adherence to their projected timeline…

Katy and Jesse K.

Just to let you know your team is the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! They were professional, polite, and the work was exceptional. The speed they did this job was remarkable.

Chelsea Murray

Monday morning my bathroom was in shambles and by Friday afternoon, I had a dream bathroom. It’s a sanctuary. I helped design it myself, the guys were great and it’s satisfaction guaranteed…

Thomas Williams

This team is responsible, ethical and we recommend without reservation or hesitation. I truly wish I knew John Whitney a long, long time ago.
