Pete Olson, founder of PJ Builders, is a man of form, function, and craft. After studying civil engineering and gaining a mastery of rough and finish carpentry, he adds a level of forethought and realism to the logistical navigation associated with general contracting. He’s made a name for himself though his Historic renovations in Old Town, which is comparable to building in Manhattan. After successfully facing those challenges for years, his craft and demand for quality shows effortlessly in his Custom home builds.
PJ Builders brings a combination of professionalism and stunning craftsmanship to each and every project, ensuring a positive experience and highly successful outcome. The finished product is designed to enhance the homeowner’s lifestyle and reflect their individuality. PJ Builders builds more than homes; we build relationships. In fact, we still have keys to 95 percent of the residences we have constructed in case the homeowners need something maintained. We are proud of the level of trust and confidence we instill with clients from the beginning.
Our exceptional craftsmanship, long-lasting relationships with clients and subcontractors, and ability to navigate the strict, ever-evolving building codes in Summit County and Wasatch County are unrivaled in the local industry. We take pride in treating every project like it were our own dream home and are adept at using the latest technology to communicate with clients, most of whom are not based in the Park City area.
We are thrilled with our newly renovated home in Park City. The sub-contractors that PJ Builders used on our home were highly qualified, creative and very professional. We had a great working relationship with each of the sub-contractors which enabled them to understand and execute our vision. Because our home was a small footprint, there were many challenges associated with creating the storage and living space that we desired, and PJ Builders was able to accomplish all that we wanted and required.
Pete Olson and PJ Builders made our vision for our new home come true! Pete and his team are professional, detail-oriented, creative, and flexible. They kept us up-to-date at every stage of the construction, sent us weekly progress photographs and made it easy for us to monitor the project from a distance. Pete’s attention to our needs and questions is unparalleled. Our new home is stunning. We highly recommend Pete and his team!
Every time I return to Park City I think, PJ Builders did such a good job, I love my house!
I like the community feel you get from working with Pete. Pete cares and that makes a difference; PJ Builders offers a lasting service and friendly treatment.
I have worked with Pete and his team for over 10 years now. His attention to details and communication sets him apart from other contractors in the industry.
Pete and his crew did a terrific job on our full remodel. I live part of the year in Barcelona, Spain and Santa Monica, California. PJ Builders was very easy to work with in spite of my frequent absence. I would highly recommend them.
We chose PJ Builders for our remodel because they came highly recommended. After first meeting Pete and his crew, we felt comfortable with them in our home and would definitely select them again.
I used the services of Pete Olson of PJ Builders for my renovation. I needed someone with local contacts and good ‘subs’ to oversee converting my vision into a reality. Knowing how important one’s word is, Pete made the commitment to do the work, we agreed to a price for his services and he lived up to his word. Pete worked well with my designer and the specialty subcontractors were excellent I would use Pete again without question or hesitation.
Having witnessed Pete’s previous work and spoken to other customers, it was obvious that Pete and his crew take a great deal of pride in what they do. Price is always a factor, but the most significant attributes involve the overall quality of work. The attention to detail was exemplary, as the end results were nothing short of beautiful. We appreciate the open lines of communication throughout the process, from the initial design phase all the way through to completion. In the event that a question or issue arose, we knew that it would be discussed and addressed in an honest and timely manner. We couldn’t be more satisfied with our experience with PJ Builders.
We contracted PJ Builders for an historic renovation in Old Town Park City. Being an old miners’ home it was not an easy renovation. At every turn there seemed to be another challenge that needed to be overcome. No obstacle seemed too much for Pete Olson. He would determine a solution that met planning codes and the renovation style we wanted to achieve. His attention to detail, workmanship and communication were always a priority, which was invaluable to us.
We have worked on All types of construction for PJ Builders from New Construction, remodels, Renovations to additions. I find PJ Builders to be one contractor we can work with because they follow a schedule and expect that from us as well. PJ Builders pushes for High standards in what they do and one of the great things this brings to their projects is sub-contractors that are easy for us to work with, making projects move smoothly and pleasantly. R L Peek Painting recommends PJ Builders any chance we get.
PJ Builders did a bathroom remodel in an Old Town house we own in 2000 and a deck/yard remodel in 2005. The quality of work was excellent. Pete and his staff are professional to work with and they completed the work in a timely manner. I would definitely use PJ Builders again in the future.
I cannot say enough about Pete Olsen, PJ builders and the incredible team of subs. I have done several remodels with other contractors and our projects always seemed to end with the feeling of ‘please just make this end’. With Pete and his team we never had a moment like that! The communication, respect for our budget, timeliness of his team and subs, respect and cleanliness of the worksite and quality of work were like nothing we have ever experienced. I knew Pete had multiple other projects at the time but he never made us feel like it. He answered text and phone calls, checked in continuously at the project and with his subs and was always a calming presence at a hectic job site. I am already looking forward to our next project with Pete and his team.
I have been pleased to use PJ Builders for three separate projects over the last 15 years. Most recently PJ Builders built a mudroom addition on my home. From start to finish, I have been completely happy with PJ Builders. The cost projection for my mudroom was incredibly thorough, and when the project was complete, our expenses were nearly to the penny in sync with the cost projection. The work has always been completed to the highest quality, and in a timely manner. In the future, should I require a professional builder, I will definitely be calling PJ Builders.
