What Our Clients Are Saying About Us
Jon Ballard and his team are our first choice for contracting services in Sonoma County. If you seek a high-quality, full-service build from planning to finish, this is your team of choice.
Our last project included a commercial space in the city of Sonoma. Jon and his team helped us work with current city requirements and codes, keeping us on track. We were all about attention to detail in our project, but the timing was also critical. We found Jon and his team committed at the same level of detail while providing needed input and seamless communications with the city team to keep us on schedule.
For our project, we requested special materials with low VOC emissions and finish details beyond city requirements, and they delivered every time. Jon and his team are seasoned professionals, and it shows in their completed projects on all levels. We love to support local businesses in Sonoma, but we can only recommend the best. From our experience, Jon Ballard Construction is the gold standard in our community."

My third project with Jon Ballard Construction is just beginning. As a realtor with over 30 years in the business, I have dealt with many contractors. Jon is readily available to me for questions or comments, has reliable sub-contractors, is honest and reliable, and has good taste! I would recommend Jon Ballard Construction to anyone."

Jon virtually rebuilt our cottage from the inside out. We were able to work within the footprint of our house, make major interior changes to the floor plan, take the house apart and rebuild on a new foundation. Every facet of home remodeling was utilized; foundation work, framing, roofing, trusses, windows, doors, plumbing, electrical, hv systems, finish carpentry, siding and more.
We are very pleased with the quality of work performed and the finished outcome. I believe two of the most important qualities in working with a contractor are communication and performance, our expectations were met in both areas. We would highly recommend Jon."

It gives me great pleasure to recommend Jon Ballard Construction Company of Sonoma, CA.
My husband and I purchased our weekend home in December 2004. Needless to say, there was work to be done! Fortunately, I was guided in the right direction to Jon Ballard and it has been a very pleasant and ongoing experience.
The workmanship is excellent and the crew is very polite and thorough. What I have also found so satisfying is the quick response and follow through from his office to even the smallest detail.
I highly recommend consulting with Jon Ballard Construction Company—you won't be disappointed!"
Ballard Construction completed an addition for us on our home in Sonoma last year. We were very pleased with every aspect of working with them. They were on schedule, stuck to the budget, and performed high quality work. Jon was such a pleasure to work with. Thanks for doing such an excellent job! We would highly recommend them."

We recently re-located to Sonoma from San Francisco, acquiring a house in bankruptcy and one that had been left ignored for about two years. We had a punch list comprising several pages of big and small projects. Ballard Construction came well recommended, and within about a month we had successfully completed critical items on the punch list, prior to moving in. The recommendation was spot on.
We found Ballard's work to be timely, well-crafted and executed, and fairly priced. We have bigger projects in mind requiring some heavy lifting, and we will again turn to Ballard to get the job done."
I would highly recommend Jon Ballard as a contractor. Jon has worked on two projects for us, both in Sonoma County; one a guest suite in a single-family house, and the other, a conversion of a single-family house into a commercial office. As we are based in San Francisco, most construction administration was done via phone.
Jon was very conscientious and very thoughtful throughout the construction process, bringing a very calm, friendly, accommodating manner to a sometimes hectic process. He assisted in helping us with a very convoluted planning permit, as well as dealing with inconsistent Building inspections. He was very forthright, professional, and a great craftsman to boot.
I like working with people who are problem solvers and that is one of Jon's strengths; he knows when to ask the right questions, and is always looking out for the end result over his own self. I am very pleased with the quality of workmanship and so are my clients.
I have absolutely no reservations about Jon Ballard. Please feel free to call me if you would like to speak more extensively about my experience with him.
