About J&RS

Build A Better Tomorrow with Exceptional Remodeling Services

J&RS has been bringing clients' dreams to life since 1995, started by two brothers, Jim and Ray, who began doing small remodeling projects for their friends and family in the Duluth area. As demand grew, so did their business. J&RS is a full-service construction company with an award-winning team of in-house professionals. Their ambition is to diversify and invest within the community rather than grow regionally. J&RS is one of the most trusted remodeling companies in The Northland Region area.

Our Mission

To elevate the community's quality of life through innovation, efficiency, and empowerment.


We are people people. From friendly and transparent client relationships to fulfilling and progressive employee culture, the community is our most important asset.


Tech-driven design, cutting-edge materials, and high-efficiency solutions underpin our desire to advance both the customer experience and the construction industry as a whole.


Our comprehensive, start-to-finish process ensures economy, integrity, and meticulous attention to detail, right down to the last nail.

About Our Owners

Owners Ray and Ty

Ray has been part of the company for 27 years. He became a licensed contractor in 1995, graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from UMD in 1993 - and has worked in construction since then.

Ray is the head of Sales- he runs multiple leadership activities to maintain the team and absolutely loves working with the team in such a positive and encouraging environment. He loves bringing the customers' dreams to life.

When he isn't working, he likes to find time to go on vacation with his wife, help his kids remodel their homes, and take time to go camping, hunting, and fishing.

Ty has been with the company for 18 years. His day-to-day consists of providing clarity for the entire team through leadership and process building and implementation across all departments. He also provides general information, encourages communication flow, attends staff meetings, trainings, and brainstorm sessions.
