"We chose Joy Developments for our summer 2016 remodel after meeting & getting quotes from Patrick and 3 other companies. Patrick's quote was not the cheapest, but it wasn't the most
expensive, either. We chose Patrick based on a gut feeling after meeting and talking with everyone - it was apparent from day one that Patrick was honest, hard working, no-bullshit, with a good eye
for detail, and who valued us as customers and maybe one day as people he'd run into at the grocery store.
At the time we got contractor quotes, we already had plans in hand for remodeling our kitchen, two bathrooms, and flooring elsewhere in the house - ripping out everything down to studs, moving a couple walls, and changing/adding new electrical. Patrick asked great questions (who's getting the permits? do you want the texture on the walls to match the other rooms, or do you want smooth?) and made great suggestions for things we hadn't yet considered that really improved the quality and function of the finished space. We felt sure that he took the time to understand our project and our needs in order to provide us the best possible quote. Sure enough, he performed all the work up to a high quality standard, and never charged us a penny over more than what he quoted. A couple times we decided to add something new to the scope, and he was totally fair about telling us what the price would be and why - we never felt like he was charging us extra at the back end to make up for losses elsewhere.
Once his flooring subcontractor came in and accidentally installed the tile by the fireplace facing the wrong direction (we chose a tile with a directional line pattern). He came in the next day, saw it, and gave us a call to let us know that he was bringing the subcontractor back to fix it at his own cost. Any time he noticed something that wasn't done up to his standards or to our plans, he made sure to make it right without making it our problem. I really, really appreciated that, especially because we were gone for several weeks during the remodel and couldn't check in on progress.
He was great at communication throughout the whole process, and asked questions regularly to make sure that we were getting exactly what we wanted.
He and his crew really went met and exceeded our expectations in every way. As an example, we live in a condo building. He not only dust protected and cleaned up our unit daily throughout demo, but he also lined the common area hall with paper to protect it from dust every day. Our neighbors were so impressed with him that several of them have used them for their own projects, and routinely raved to me about the quality of his work, his ability to do it on time, and how fair his prices were.
It's been a year since the remodel and all of his work has held up with no issues, and I *almost* wish we had more work to do so I would have an excuse to hire him again. Since I don't, do us all a solid and hire him for your next project instead."

"Patrick Joy has gone far past our expectations. Superb quality and fantastic subcontractors, if need be. West Seattle family and business too, which we like to support."

"They did a excellent job! Along the way, PJ was able to give suggestions on how to improve my original thoughts and executed them consistently, great team to work with, honest, trustworthy and hard-working..would definitely recommend!"
-Rob Jack, Loan Officer, West Seattle, WA
"Patrick and his team did a fantastic job on designing and building a carport on our 1900's Craftsman. We wanted a carport that looked modern, but not out of place with the existing home and
neighborhood. The result was a seamless addition that functions well and looks stunning.
It was a pleasure working with Patrick to design the carport. He has the uncanny ability to transform about three Pinterest photos and a few bullet points into a full vision, and it was just brilliant to see that vision come to life. Patrick and his team worked efficiently through the demo and construction process, and the carport was done in almost no time.
Communication was always on point- we could always reach Patrick with any questions and get a prompt response, and he kept us updated on the project's progress.
We had a minor issue with a malfunctioning lock on the new gate, and Patrick was out within days to assess it and order a new lock. I would hire him and his team again in a heartbeat, and I wholeheartedly recommend him."

"Patrick and his team are amazing! My first clue was how quickly he responded to my initial email when I reached to ask about remodeling my kitchen. While I had some specific ideas about how I wanted it to look, there was a ton I didn't know and Patrick patiently walked me through things, offered great suggestions, and overall seemed genuinely interested in making sure I was happy with the entire process. Patrick always answered all of my questions and he was very transparent about everything. He and Tyler, and everyone else involved, turned my awkward and un-functional kitchen space into a beautiful "real" kitchen and an eating area. I highly recommend them and I will definitely call them again for other projects!"
-Kristin F, Seattle, WA
"I worked with Patrick and his team on doing a total renovation on a bathroom. Patrick was very professional from the get go. We received four quotes and his was in line with the other quotes we received. I found him honest and fair and very good at problem solving. He didn't blink at our nitpicky requests and handled little glitches along the way quickly and pleasantly. His team was also very polite and efficient. The bathroom came out beautifully and we are very proud of it. We hope to use Patrick and his team again for another project down the road."
-Clelia G, Seattle, WA
"Patrick designed and built a carport for my single-family home in Seattle and we were extremely pleased with his professionalism, communication, and quality. We look forward to working with Patrick again on future projects."
-Steve F, Seattle, WA
"I contracted Joy
Developments to work on many projects over the past 2 years and always was extremely satisfied with the results. Patrick is a rare find of a contractor: reliable and punctual, well
prepared, knowledgeable and resourceful. He won't mislead you about a cost of a project , moreover, would give you money saving tips from where to buy materials to
conservative maintenance. He also have an artistic eye for finishing details and color, and gives excellent advice on remodeling projects. I have recommended Joy Development to my friends
with pleasure and confidence"

"Patrick came to my rental and did the subfloor in my bathroom. I was extremely satisfied with the way it turned out. He saved me the time and frustration of doing it myself. Punctual, professional and a very nice guy. Definitely going to use Joy Developments for any future projects that I need done."
