Why MJE?

Choosing the right contractor for your home remodeling or addition project is key to success.  You might believe that all contractors are the same, but nothing could be further from the truth.  When presented with the same medical condition, one physician might put you on the road to a speedy and full recovery while another might amputate the wrong leg.  When presented with the same case, one attorney might vigorously and flawlessly defend you while another sends collection letters for his fees to your jail cell.  When flying to the same destination, one pilot might handle an emergency situation completely without your knowledge while another has you praying for an opportunity to go back in time to take the bus.  The construction industry and contractors are no different.  Your choices matter and your results will vary.


There are plenty of reasons to choose Michael John Enterprises, Inc. for your home project, just as many Tampa Bay homeowners have done before you.  We invite you to do your homework and check us out.  To get you started, here are just a few of the reasons why MJE should be at the top of your list.


We have “been there and done that”. 


MJE has been providing solutions to homeowners in the Tampa Bay area since 1984.  Although no two projects are exactly alike, chances are good that we have done many projects similar to yours.  Not just one or two like much of our competition, but many.  That experience allows us to deliver unparalleled results.


Additions and remodeling are not sidelines for us – they are our core business. 


Michael John Enterprises, Inc. specializes in building room additions and remodeling.  As a result, we understand and appreciate the very specific challenges unique to designing for and working in an occupied home. Many contractors and tradesmen prefer to work in new construction and only take on remodeling and addition work when business is slow, if at all.  Some may call us crazy, but we have built our business around working in homes like yours.


Our solutions maximize homeowner value.


Additions and remodeling can and should add value to your home, if properly designed and completed. If not, your investment can result in an expense with limited or no return.  Our best work is undetectable at project completion.  We approach every project with an eye on delivering a solution that fits as seamlessly as possible with your existing structure. Your value is maximized by a solution that appears to be part of your home rather than an afterthought.


Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch?


In addition to free estimates, we also provide free design services.  As part of our initial meetings, we will help you turn your ideas into workable designs focused on your needs, wants and budget –FREE Design Services all at absolutely no cost or obligation to you.  We want you to be able to realize your dreams.  In fact, our business depends on it.  All too often, we meet with frustrated homeowners who have spent a great deal of money to have professional plans drawn up only to find out their grand plan cannot be built. The reasons vary (from not meeting setback requirements, exceeding local municipality spending limitations, not obtaining HOA approval or simply designing something beyond one's budget), but the results are always the same - wasted money and disappointment.  By getting involved with the design, we can ensure that the path chosen is sound and that all factors and alternatives are considered.  If you do proceed and choose to work with us, we will be better positioned for success having been involved from the start.  If not, we move on to the next opportunity armed with even more design ideas and experience.

What you see is what you get.

The price we quote for your project is the price you will pay.  Our project estimates are only estimates for our costs - not yours.  Our contract with you will define the scope of work and No Bait & Switchidentify what is included and excluded from your price.  With MJE, you know from the outset what you will pay for the project.  You might assume that is the way all contractors work, but you would most definitely be wrong with that assumption.  With most contractors in our field, you almost always end up paying substantially more than the initial estimate.  For many contractors, this is intentionally done because all too often the lowest bid gets awarded the project.  After the contract is signed, money changes hands and the work begins, there are plenty of opportunities to increase your cost for items that weren't included in the estimate.  For other contractors, the price manipulation frequently happens from a simple lack of experience.  Estimating remodeling/addition work is often more complicated than new construction because of the variables involved in dealing with the existing structure.  Many contractors would simply go out of business (and often do) if they had to stand by their estimates.  As ironic as it seems, selecting a contractor solely based on the lowest bid can be the most expensive mistake you'll ever make.

Please note that we do still accommodate flexibility in our projects, where appropriate.  For instance, we often incorporate allowances in our contracts to handle situations where every detail may not be known up front.  Because you may not know the exact plumbing fixtures you want in your new bathroom at the beginning of a project, we might include an allowance in the contract sufficient to purchase and install typical fixtures.  When you determine what you really want, you pay (or save) the incremental cost for your actual selections.  You remain in control of the selections and the budget.  We also accommodate requested scope changes through change orders.  This flexibility is critical to meeting your needs without any associated surprises.

We’re not satisfied unless you’re satisfied.
