Jersey Shore Renovation & Remodeling

Love Your Home Again

Whether you’re breathing new life into dated cabinets, designing your dream kitchen or upgrading drafty windows in a NJ vacation cottage, J. Lorton & Company brings proven skill to your renovation project. Since 1983, we’ve engineered and remodeled hundreds of homes throughout Ocean, Monmouth and Atlantic counties. Taking pride in every project detail, we provide impeccable craftsmanship for home and room additions, full-scale home and business retrofits, custom decks and carpentry projects of all sizes.

Your Home, Reimagined

At J. Lorton & Company, we are in the business of building lifetime client relationships. When you partner with us, you’re part of the family—and we’re thrilled when a client who entrusted us with their home’s construction returns years later to update the space. Whether you’re making room for family and guests or sprucing up a summertime retreat, count on us to take pride in every project detail.

These days, remodeling services make good sense. Beyond serving as a safe harbor and place for family connection, your house has become a major productivity zone. Renovating the place where you work, learn and play is a practical, cost-effective way to engage this new season of life. When you partner with J. Lorton & Company, we tailor every remodel to your lifestyle-specific construction goals. Together, there is no limit to what we can create.

Our seasoned staff has decades of carpentry, architecture and interior design expertise, and we put it to work with projects like these:

Expanding livable space. Before starting from scratch with a new home, remodel your house interior to include in-law and guest suites, entertainment or play spaces, work- or learn-from-home zones and built-in storage galore. Growing family? Let’s stretch existing square footage with a whole-home renovation.

Basement finishes. From man caves to mother-in-law quarters, we’ll optimize unused square footage. Turn your basement into a workout studio, or let the kids run free in a safe, downstairs playroom. Go beyond the spare bedroom and transform your walkout into a full apartment. This high-value home addition is ideal for transitioning young adults and aging parents. You can also turn some profit with a basement vacation rental; then sit back and watch the renovations pay for themselves.

Dining room conversions. For many of us, the formal dining room is dusty and rarely used. Families go where the food is—then circle up at the island or gather in the great room. Convert your dusty dinette into a TV hangout or guest room, or nix the China cabinet and expand the kitchen. If you’re faced with space challenges for working and learning from home, exchange the dining room for an added study, library or homeschool set-up.

Sustainable home upgrades. J. Lorton & Company is committed to reducing carbon emissions in our own facility and homes, and we’re doing the same for our valued customers. Transform a dated, low-efficiency house into a healthy, sustainable environment with eco-friendly building materials and green construction techniques. Think solar panels, ENERGY STAR® certified appliances, high-efficiency storm windows and new insulation. Own a business? Ask about LEED certification. We’re the experts.

Updates Make a Home New Again

You adored your Shore home when you moved in, but now the popcorn ceilings and wall-to-wall carpet feel more like your grandma’s place. Freshen the living area with LED lighting upgrades or newly installed millwork and baseboards. Invest in a master bedroom makeover, splurge on a state-of-the-art kitchen and finish off your changes with a fresh coat of paint. Whatever your vision, J. Lorton & Company helps you reimagine your forever home at prices that won’t break the budget.

Have you stopped to look at your home’s exterior recently? Beach homes take a beating, and over time they become weather-worn and drafty. If curb appeal is lacking and the coming storm season has you worried, trust our construction professionals to upgrade windows, repair damaged siding, build a sunroom or deck out the garage. Choose from weather-tested materials and high-performance construction that outperform conditions at the coast.
