“Working with John was such a great experience! It was our first home to buy and he was beyond patient with us. His eye for design was up to date with current trends and I was surprised to find out he had no formal design training. He did a wonderful job (no cutting corners) He’s ethical, trustworthy and followed through on all (minor) issues that came up within our warranty window. I cannot recommend getting a Clason home highly enough.”

“We have been so pleased with our experience with Clason Company. Their industry experience allows them to offer sound guidance on technical/structural decisions while still allowing the client to let the project reflect their personal style. The common complaints you hear with construction projects are “twice the cost and twice the time” — Clason Company has integrity and works diligently to deliver on their initial promises on both time and budget. They have truly made our remodel a turn-key experience, delivering a very pleasant experience as they handle all the tough issues that arise with confidence and grace. It has given us so much peace of mind to have them managing this project. I recommend them without reservation. :)”

– Emily Williams, Central Point

“We used the Clason Company for our remodel, and they handled all details beautifully. We tried going through lots of different companies for various projects and so many of them were a total flop. Clason Co. totally went to bat for us to get exactly what we wanted to have the prices we wanted. I also appreciated their transparency with costs. Also we were on a super tight schedule needing to get our kitchen done in 3-4 weeks, and they made it happen.”

“Building our dream home with John Clason and Clason Company at the helm was a truly remarkable experience. From our first meeting to our final walk-thru, John kept our project moving forward efficiently and professionally. We had a complicated build on a hillside in Ashland, Oregon. John was meticulous in making sure each phase of construction was done properly and in a timely fashion. His subcontractors were the best in the valley–always polite, professional, and always willing to answer my questions or hear my thoughts. And most importantly, John was very respectful of our budget, and did his best to help us stay on target with minimal “surprise” expenses. He was extremely honest and ethical, and I always felt completely comfortable that he had our best interest at heart. It was a pleasure working with John, and I would highly recommend him as a General Contractor.”

“Our home was built by John Clason and we could not be happier with the design, layout, and his site selection that optimizes our views of the Ashland hills. We have an open floor plan which would allow us to live on the ground floor if necessary, a requirement that many seniors are now seeking. He built a large covered deck adjacent to the dining room and kitchen with a lovely backyard below. He fenced and gated the backyard and at our request, made sure that we had a sunny area to grow vegetables. He and the landscaper were able to save a lovely, big evergreen tree that anchors a corner of our front yard. John chose simple yet modern finishes for the home that all flow together to create a beautiful, stylish residence. Our home qualified for both Energy Star and Earth Advantage certification which means that the design elements, systems and materials meet strict green building energy standards. We highly recommend John for anyone contemplating building or purchasing a new home. For the few concerns we had initially, he was extremely responsive — he and his excellent subcontractors are easy to work with.”

“When we first walked into what would become our home, it was semi-completed. The first and most striking thing about the house was the massive windows, and breath-taking view, that defined the room, and by extension for us, the entire house. Beyond the aesthetic impact of the windows, the floor plan was everything; it had obviously been carefully thought out to maximize comfort and function. At that time, John was a new builder to the area, and didn’t have a local reputation that our realtor was aware of. So, prior to being in contract, John put us in contact with the owner of his previous build. After touring her home and discovering what kind of builder John was, we were eager to finalize the contract. Once we were in contract, we had an opportunity to sit down with John and begin to go over the finishes. John’s philosophy was to approach the finishes as being as personalized as possible, to make our home feel as custom as possible, including some changes to the layout of the kitchen. To that end, John had an incredibly organized and well communicated plan for moving through all the choices that we had to make. For each category of finishes, he had an expert we could speak with, a store we could visit, and a very clear budget for everything. In addition to all the options that John had prepared for us, he allowed us to go beyond his pre-identified vendors to find what we liked, with the understanding that if the cost went beyond our pre-established budget, it would be an out of pocket charge. As we finalized our choices, he confirmed the exact choices we had made, before any money was spent, or any deadline was breached. As John walked through the confirmation process with us, several times he caught miss-matched pieces and found the matching option that we were unable to find. John has always answered his phone, or gotten back to us within a day. Whatever the issue, he has either dispatched an expert to resolve the issue, or shown up himself to take care of it. We would definitely recommend John to anybody looking for a builder that will deliver a quality home, with first class finishes, tailored to your own personal style.”

“We recently had a remodel done for our home by Clason Company. We were impressed with their perseverance in getting the documentation completed with the city to get our project started. We were also pleased with the professionalism and politeness of all the subcontractors they brought to the project. And we really appreciated and enjoyed the collaborative process of designing the details of our remodel.”

– Marilee Grimm, Jacksonville

“We chose the Clason Company to build our forever home because of their quality, honesty, timeliness in finishing construction and professionalism. They exceeded our expectations, and we felt like we were their top priority. Our home is beautiful and every detail is a reflection of the pride they take in constructing. Throughout the process they made sure that our home reflected our own style and personality while being mindful to keep everything within our budget. We are so happy we made the decision to build with John and his team at the Clason Company, and we recommend them to all our friends that are looking to build the home of their dreams.”

– Mike & Rachel Uffens, Medford

“John made the intimidating process of building a house feel smooth and attainable. He was able to work with our budget by helping us find areas where we could save money and then use that money to incorporate things that were really important to us. He involved us in the process so we had some ownership in the project and was very accommodating to some of our unique ideas. He was very open and honest with us from start to finish which we really appreciated. Best of all, he’s fast! Our old home was demolished and a new one built all in five months’ time! We highly recommend Clason Company for quick, quality work!”

– Brandon & Kari Clark, Ashland

“Building a custom home is very intimidating and overwhelming. We knew we wanted someone we could trust to be honest with us and guide us along the way. Trusting John with our home was easy. He is very hard working, attentive to detail and budget, had great relationships with his subs and easy to talk to. If ever there was an issue we could count on him to solve it in the best and most timely way possible. It was an absolute pleasure working with John and his team. We love our new home and recommend him to everyone.”

– Todd & Melissa Clevenger, Medford

“John built our wonderful, warm, and charming home in Southern Oregon. The quality of construction is top-notch, as he pays attention to detail and selects the best contractors. He’s a responsive and trustworthy member of the community who stands by his work. We couldn’t be happier with the experience of working with John!”
