Your Jersey Shore Area Builder

Crafting Custom Homes & Living Spaces

Proud to serve the Jersey Shore, we’ve built a decades-old reputation that’s defined by our family-owned culture, personalized service and flawless attention to detail.

As one of Ocean County’s fastest growing builders, our passion for excellence starts at the top. John Lorton constructed his first custom home in 1982 and opened J. Lorton & Company one year later. Since the early days, home and business owners throughout the region have come to rely on our reputable team. Partner with us to enhance your existing property, make room for a growing family, construct a light commercial space or engineer your beachside abode.

Selecting a Beach Construction Expert

Choosing a partner to build your dream home or complete a kitchen and bath renovation is a weighty financial and emotional commitment. With J. Lorton & Company, you can rest easy. Hiring our team means no project detail is overlooked, and old-school values are back in fashion.

Unfortunately, high-caliber service is a lost art in the construction and service trades. The building industry has too many fly-by-night contractors who rush the small stuff, install cheap materials and miss every deadline. When you partner with our Jersey Shore custom building team, the difference is clear. Every aspect of our business reflects a timeless commitment to character and integrity. We emphasize transparent communication from bid to completion, and we respect your schedule and budget.

At J. Lorton & Company, we’re turning first-time clients into lifetime clients—and putting the same time, energy and attention into your home that we’d spend on our own. We’re a licensed State of New Jersey and South Carolina builder who stands behind our work, and we do things right—the first time.
