"Jim has a unique ability to see solutions where others can't and also tailor those solutions to the needs of the client by simply taking what may be the quickest or easiest route
for him. As a local in the San Lorenzo Valley, Jim has extensive knowledge of the requirements for soil, slopes, drainage, and erosion in this area. Jim's advice has also been invaluable to us during
all phases of our most recent home project, helping us with everything from initial appraisal of the property to planning and carrying out all renovations and enhancements."

"Dear Jim and Crew,
You did a terrific job on the gabian basket walls that will control some of the erosion that was starting to happen in our creek. We are so grateful for your fine work. First of all, you promptly
answered our phone inquiry and responded with a visit and free estimate. That shows so much professionalism in itself.
We appreciate your hard work, your ingenuity in getting the rock material down into our steep yard and the extreme care you took in keeping the existing landscaping intact. You also stuck by your quote, which shows you really know your projects, and we were impressed with your prompt follow up to make sure everything was acceptable. And finally, the walls look great!
You and your crew showed a professionalism that isn't always exhibited in the construction world. It was a pleasure working with all of you! We recommend J. Porter Construction to anyone, and we'd certainly do business with you again."

"Mr. Jim Porter was hired by us to solve drainage problems at our home in Ben Lomond.
The job was designed by Jim to mitigate severe drainage problems on a sandy hillside home. Jim and his crew built a retaining wall around our water well storage tank, and designed and built two diversion ditches, and designed and built a detailed underground drainage system for our home, including tile installation of underground gutters. Two weeks after this installation, a severe rainstorm occurred. All of the drainage systems worked to perfection!
Jim's crew took four days to complete this job; and there was no “long- break” to head off to other jobs under construction.
J. Porter Construction is a first class company. I give them my hearty recommendation.
