Spokane Washington & Coeur d'Alene Idaho 


J&S Construction is a fast-growing residential remodeling company serving clients throughout the Spokane Washington and Coeur d'Alene Idaho area. We are a Licensed Home Improvement contractor and a General Contractor. Our focus is primarily on High-End Custom kitchen, bath, and basement projects, with some whole-house and commercial projects as well.  J&S Construction sets the bar high in terms of craftsmanship, client care, and professionalism. We are a young, agile company with strong market expansion goals that will create career growth opportunities for qualified individuals.
