MJM Construction LLC's Services and Experience Building Additions
Since 1988 Mike Ritzzo specializes in all facets of home construction from Basement to the Roof. We are a family founded, owned & run construction company (MJM Construction LLC).
We offer the following:

  • We provide permitting & inspects
  • We Finance everything we sell
  • We are fully insured
  • We use our own workers and do not sub-contract out the work performed


The Importance of Lighting
Think of color corrected lighting and natural light sources. Use insulated ultra violet protected skylights where possible for healthy natural light. Use lighting fixtures with reflectors to save on energy costs, at the same time do not compromise your eye vision for poor quality lamps or light bulbs.

Planning Your Addition
Plan your Space by your Life & Work habits
Remodel rooms in your home to suit your lifestyle. Space should be planned only by function & needs. Remember that all appliances must be within reach with plenty of counter space in-between. For bath room fixtures, think function, personal care, health needs & comfort in your design.
Think about creating new space in:

  • Attics
  • Basements
  • Enclosed Porches


The Cost of Remodeling
You do not have to spend a lot of money to remodel a room. There is good quality kitchen & bath fixtures out their that are reasonably priced. You can achieve a rich comfortable environment simply with color.
The best products are massed produced and cost far less than trendy products. A contractor should give you what you want within reason and within budget.

Safety First When Planning Your Addition

  • Use non slip floors
  • Keep electrical appliances away from sinks
  • Use only non-porous surfaces
  • Make sure fire and smoke alarms are working
  • Properly vent rooms


As a General Contractor, MJM Construction LLC can be your New Home Builder; Renovations and Additions Contractor; or your Kitchen, Bathroom or Basement Remodeling Contractor.

  • When we act as a general contractor we either perform all of the construction work with our own employees, or we supervise the work of our subcontractors. We contract directly with the owner of the property and we handle all aspects of the construction work as agreed upon per the construction documents.
  • If you wish to engage us as a general contractor, we are glad to provide you with a competitive bid for your project. If you compare us with any other builder, home improvement contractor or remodeling contractor, we're confident that you'll be impressed with our workmanship and the range of services we offer.
  • Please be sure to provide us with a complete and final set of architectural plans that have been drawn up by a licensed architect. If you do not have plans, we can always work with you to develop plans in a Design and Build Contracting capacity.

For Bathroom, Kitchen or Basement Remodeling, please call Boxtree Homes

  • Assuming you have final architectural plans, please provide us with a complete list of specifications desired for the project including: all lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, tile, flooring, doors and trim, hardware, wall and ceiling finishes, appliances, kitchen cabinets and countertops, bathroom cabinets and countertops, as well as all other finishes and all design details ready for construction. If you or your architect is unable to provide complete specifications then we can always work with you develop these specifications as described in our Design and Build Contracting services.
  • We can usually provide a bid within two to four weeks assuming that all information has been provided.
  • If all of the information has not been provided then we may also bid the project including "allowances" for items that are not fully defined. In this way, the client can determine the choices for these allowance items at a later date while the project is underway.
  • After we finalize the bid, we meet with you in our office in order to completely review the itemized budget so that you can more easily compare our bid to those from other builders, home improvement contractors or remodeling contractors. It is especially important for the client to distinguish all of the details that we have included for all kitchen, bathroom, or basement remodeling projects.

If  subcontractors are involved, your remodeling contractor must properly supervise  their work to make sure it meets the highest standards of quality
