One thing you quickly realize as a homeowner is that it is VERY difficult to find a contractor who is dependable, professional, an expert in their craft, personable, and reasonably priced. John Langan is all those things and more! We had John install wainscot, crown, and floor molding, in addition to room dividing columns – about 6 rooms and a staircase in all. John was fast and professional, and he made our house look like a candidate for a home decor magazine cover in less than a week! John also helped us correct a molding issue we had in a room we had installed molding in ourselves, and he also corrected a molding issue on our staircase that was leftover from the builder. He did such fantastic work that we contacted him again several years later to complete molding in some bedrooms and also install some large frame molding on the upper walls of our foyer and above our fireplace. My husband loves John’s work so much that he asked me if there was anything else I wanted John to do when he saw me writing this review. We HIGHLY recommend John and JL Molding Design!

I hired JL Molding Design to install crown molding throughout my home and we are extremely impressed. Not only by the quality of their installation, but their professionalism and cleanliness. I would not only use them again but would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a quality installation.

We had molding work completed a few years ago by JL Molding Design. They beautified our foyer and made it very warm and welcoming, and the price was very reasonable. John was extremely professional and courteous. He setup in our garage to cut the molding and after he was done, our garage was immaculate!

We had a great experience with JL Molding. We were only doing our dining room right now but would definitely use him again when we are ready for our next project. He came in and was very professional. He showed us various options and honestly discussed the trade-off between looks and price. He told us what was worth it and what wasn’t as well as what would look good (even if what he was suggesting was the cheaper option). He was extremely professional and prompt with his service. We will definitely be using JL Molding again.

I would like to take the time to let others know what a great job JL Molding Design did with the installation of molding throughout our NJ home. The communication with John was prompt, efficient and top notch. During the initial consultation, John listened to our needs and what we wanted to have done. We printed out several photos from his website and discussed what look we wanted to achieve. I have to say that after the work was completed our home looked absolutely amazing. Anyone that comes into our home for the first time always asks about the molding and who we hired to do it.. I proudly tell them, JL Molding Design. It’s the only company that I would recommend! !

As the owner of an Interior Design firm, it is important that I use the services of highly qualified contractors to assist me with all of my clients projects. I have worked on several occasions with JL Molding Design over the past three years. John’s level of craftsmanship is outstanding and he and his crew are always neat and respectful of my clients home while working on projects. JL Molding Designs’s attention to detail and pride in their work shows with each project that we complete.

The whole experience was perfect. John was a professional! He was very attentive to details and spent quite a bit of time talking with me about what kind of molding we wanted. He looked at the rest of the house and considered how high our living room ceiling was, and he made suggestions for what would look best and match the rest of the house. He came right before the holidays and the work was completed within several hours. He even worked around a fully decorated Christmas tree. He was a perfectionist and we couldn’t be more pleased with his work. The room looks finished now.

I have used this company for multiple projects: Custom fireplace mantle, crown molding, chair rails, shadow boxes. Was very thorough and meticulous and all the projects done came out excellent. I intend to continue to use this company in the future. Every detail was covered and explained fully. Installation was done timely and neat. No complaints.

I was looking to have shadow box molding added to 3 bedrooms in my home and after receiving a few estimates, I decided to go with JL Molding Design. From day one, I was extremely impressed with the professionalism displayed by owner John Langan. My wife and I were so happy with the work done in our home that we asked John to come back a few months later to add some trim and wainscoting to another room. Unlike many companies today, JL Molding Design is punctual, courteous and most of all performs excellent work. If you are interested in any of these attributes call JL Molding Design immediately!

John was outstanding. We wanted to put crown molding in our living room and dining room. We wanted to change the molding around the three windows and put up a medallion over our current light fixture. We also wanted to put decorative molding in our foyer. John helped us choose the molding that would look best. He knew better than us what size and how decorative to be without the molding over powering the room. John was refreshingly honest. John did not sell us materials that would over power the room or that might need to be taken down later and redone. If he thought we were looking at something that was too much, he told us. We ended up with beautiful crown molding, a medallion purchased at Home Depot ( John told us we would get the best price there), new molding around the three windows, molding above our front door and four boxes with boxes inside in our foyer. Truly beautiful! I never would have known what to pick without John! I am totally happy with how it all came out!
Overall, working with John and JL Molding was a wonderful experience. John was honest, cared about our time frame, explained everything in detail and did exceptional work. Even our painter was impressed with John’s work. John and his employee Rick were respectful of our home and left our home clean. I trusted John and left him in our home to work alone. I really feel like John cared about our home like it was his own. I highly recommend JL Molding and would definitely call them again to do more work in the future.

Working with John Langan (the owner) and his team was a pleasure. They were very professional and did great work. John gave us an estimate which came in a little above what our painter’s guy would have charged us. But we thought John would do a better job, and he specializes in molding, so we decided to go with him. For what it’s worth, we also contacted a friend’s contractor, who quoted us a much higher price. John ordered the molding and had it delivered to our house a few days ahead of time. On the day of the work, he and a crew member arrived on time and got to work. He consulted me on the placement of the molding – how high it should go, how many picture boxes on each wall, etc. He had ideas and suggestions, but wanted to make sure we’d be happy with the end result. Then he and his partner cut the wood in the garage, and installed it in our dining room. They worked quickly and efficiently. I was very pleased with the work. Note that John does not caulk and prep the molding for painting – that was up to our painter to do. However, he made that clear from the start, so there was no confusion.
John and his partner vacuumed the garage when they were done, as all the sawing left a lot of dust. The floor was pretty clean, but there was still sawdust other places in the garage – ie on all the junk in the garage. That is my only criticism. Overall I was very happy. The molding looks terrific, the price was fair, and the people were professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend JL Molding Design.
