The skilled artisans at JDL Construction are dedicated to infusing every project with only the finest in quality products and labor. Orange County is filled with examples of late-19th and early-20th century architecture in styles from Craftsman, Cottage and Tuscany, to Bungalow, Ranch and Mission Revival. Our goal is for every home we build to take its place among the best examples of home building craftsmanship, and we strive to achieve it by closely overseeing every project from inception to completion, as well as only hiring subcontractors who share our passion for excellence.
James Lepak, Owner of JDL Construction
Unlike other high-end contractors who juggle a multitude of projects at the expense of quality service, at JDL Construction, our experienced tradesmen treat every project as if your home were our own. We work hand-in-hand with you, starting from the beginning stages. We review your blueprints to ensure the floor plans accurately reflect your vision, and help you select the finest fixtures—doors, cabinetry, windows, lighting, electrical, surround sound and much more. Space is optimized, ambiance is created and furniture placement is conceptualized.
At the end of each stage of construction, our owner or foreman will walk with you through your home to make sure it is progressing to your expectations, and we are readily available to address your every need or concern from the moment your project is begun until it is completed to your satisfaction.
So that your dream home comes to life exactly as you’ve envisioned, we also offer the assistance of full-service design consultants to assist in the selection of custom paint, tile, flooring, fixtures and window treatments.
While we strive to build homes with the same quality and craftsmanship of those found in generations past, we also understand how utilizing 21st century technology can benefit our clients in ways homeowners of the past could only dream about. During the conceptualization (pre-building) process, our 3-D computer rendering software allows you to see exactly what your custom home, remodel or addition will look like, allowing for changes and modifications before we ever begin construction. As a green builder, we also utilize the latest in ecologically friendly and energy-saving products and materials to help ensure the beauty—and energy efficiency—of your home for years to come.
JDL Construction is more than a general construction company—it is the fulfillment of owner James Lepak's childhood dream. James' passion for construction began with tree houses, backyard forts and home improvement projects, and that same unbridled enthusiasm and love of building infuses each and every one of his custom homes, additions and remodels.
"I have wanted to be a contractor for as long as I can remember," James says. "Construction is the only thing I have ever known. I feel very fortunate to make a living doing what I love, and when you do what you love, it's not like work at all. After each project, the client’s ecstatic expression and subsequent referrals say more to me than a thousand words. This is the greatest compliment I could receive.”
James' story is one of overcoming adversity through dedication, hard work and a belief in his ability to fulfill his dreams. James founded JDL Construction at the age of 19, only five years after losing both of his parents. Since that time, he has utilized that same spirit of commitment and positivity to bring the dreams of Coastal Orange County homeowners to life.
