Building a new home should be fun and exciting, and our seamless process makes it an enjoyable experience.

Choosing T.L. Jackson Construction is the best decision you’ll make in building your new home. Our quality rests in the types of materials we use, our construction methods, documentation, and skilled craftsmanship. Our professional staff overees the entire process including project management, coordination of construction, supervision of tradesmen, and customer service. We also specialize in the unique building challenges of waterfront homes, so you can be assured that your lake home is quality constructed for the requirements of lakeside living.

We build more than just houses, we build relationships. By the time their homes are built, many of our clients testify that they feel they’ve become a part of the Jackson family. The fact that several clients have returned to us to build additional homes testifies to the trust they place in T.L. Jackson and the quality of our work.

By the time construction begins, you’ll have had the opportunity to interface with individual members of the T.L. Jackson team. It is very important to us that you feel comfortable asking questions and working with us. We provide you with the resources, schedules, and gentle reminders to keep the process on track, making it a pleasurable experience.

Many times when building a new home we have to demolish an existing structure.  To some it seems pointless to tear down a standing structure to rebuild a new one – why not remodel?  There are a variety of reasons why we would chose to demolish, especially around a lake.  Just a few of those reasons might be:

  • Moisture problems for decades in the crawl space have taken their toll on the foundation.
  • The cost of remodeling is many times more expensive than demolition rebuilding.
  • Desired placement of the new structure on the site is different than where the existing structure is located.
  • The layout of the old structure does not meet the requirements for owners

When TL Jackson does demolish a home, you can trust that we use equipment and methods that have the lowest impact on both the surrounding structures and the land upon which the structure was built. You can also trust that our employees and sub-contractors are professionals with many years of experience and a wealth of knowledge in commission of their job.
