“Having been a builder most of my career, when it came to selecting one to build our new home at the Jersey Shore, we wanted someone who was knowledgeable about shore building practices, who had earned a reputation for quality and timely performance, who would make sound recommendations to us, and who would listen to our own product and design preferences but not hesitate to tell us if we weren’t heading in the right direction.  We wanted timely performance, not excuses, and a builder whom we could trust.  That’s what we got with Erik! 

He is a terrific person with whom to work, a builder who is as good as his word.”

“Quality materials, solid construction, and elegant craftsmanship are the hallmarks of Erik Johnson’s work as a builder.  During the past ten years, we have had the opportunity to work with Erik on several new residential building projects on Long Beach Island.  He is an onsite builder who takes a great deal of personal responsibility in the project details.  He coordinates all elements of a job seamlessly, and his subcontractors are professionals who are among the finest in their fields.  We have always valued Erik’s open communication during the building process.  He is easy to access via e-mail, phone, or text message.  Most importantly, his company’s final products are superb.  His work is represented in many beautiful and ideally functional homes on LBI.”

“As an on-the-job and hands-on builder, Erik explains the steps of the building process as the project progresses, and he offers guidance with the many decisions that are required of homeowners.  Erik and his crew work neatly and efficiently, and they are reliable.  It’s our impression that he and his company limit their number of active jobs so that each one receives the proper attention and is completed in a timely manner.  From our own experiences with Erik, it’s easy to understand why he has an excellent reputation as a quality builder on LBI.”

“We are totally happy with Erik Johnson and our new home.  Erik made sure that our house was not only built well, but also on time and within budget.  During the progression of our project, we frequently saw him in person working alongside his construction team.  When we visited to check on the progress, he always answered all of our questions.  He was always available to meet with us to go over details and choices.  We originally were going to do the finish work ourselves, but it quickly became overwhelming, and Erik’s response, ‘Don’t worry.  I’ll take care of it,’ came true over and over.  Erik’s straightforward style is truly a breath of fresh air.  He also checked on us several times during the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy, and take note that our new home on LBI stood strong.”

“When you have EHJ Inc. build your home, you are dealing directly with Erik Johnson every step of the way, and that’s a good thing because Erik is focused on attention to detail and on building a quality home for his clients.  The fact that our house was undamaged by Hurricane Sandy is testimony to the quality of the construction. 

We suspect that many people approach the homebuilding process the way we did – hoping to find a builder who is willing to work with you, who is accessible throughout the process, who stays on task and completes the project within the specific time frame, and perhaps most importantly, who takes pride in his workmanship.  EHJ Inc. was the perfect choice for us.  Erik exceeded our expectations in all of these areas.  We are thrilled with the end result and feel as though we received a great value for our money.”

“It was a pleasure having Erik Johnson as our builder for our new home in Beach Haven.  Not only was the outcome beyond our expectations, but Erik and his staff also made the entire process effortless for us.  EHJ Inc. is truly a professional operation with a tremendous track record of beautiful homes on LBI.  From design, product selection, and the attention to every detail, to the quality of workmanship and the strict adherence to our timeline, EHJ Inc. is truly a premiere construction company offering an unsurpassed product and providing a level of confidence and comfort along the way.”

“We sought out builders who could assist us with creating our dream house.  We were fortunate to have several neighbors who had done total renovations over the last several years, and we went to them for advice.  To our surprise, they all used the same builder, Erik Johnson.  All of our neighbors were complimentary about Erik, their building experiences, and the quality of the workmanship in their homes.  Erik was there every step of the way through all the phases of construction, and he delivered our new home on time in early May, which allowed for a great summer at the beach.  It was also a pleasure to work with Erik’s subcontractors, who were professional and helpful.  Erik was very adept at striking the right balance between allowing us the freedom to make our own choices and offering his recommendations when necessary.  Erik truly cares about his customers and the craftsmanship that goes into his work.  He is reliable, punctual, and knowledgeable in every phase of building a home.  Our experience was stress free.”

“Erik was one of six builders whom we considered.  We chose Erik because of the feedback that we received from previous customers and his competitive price.  It also impressed us that he is on the job site working with the subs and not managing from an office.  Erik completed our home within the agreed-upon time and handled the two changes we made during the building process at a reasonable price.”

We met with several builders before meeting Erik to discuss building our new home in Haven Beach.  After talking with him and seeing the attention to detail and craftsmanship he put into his own beautiful home, we knew we'd found the builder who could make our vision a reality.  Although we were initially concerned about trying to build a second home from a long distance, our concerns were soon alleviated as Erik is very hands-on and we knew we were in excellent hands.  He and his team were terrific at helping us through myriad design choices while keeping on schedule and coordinating with others like the landscapers and pool company to deliver our finished home in time for the summer season.  If you are looking for a home and not just a house, built by a true craftsman, there is no one better than Erik.  We have had more complete strangers compliment our new home than we ever imagined.  We always tell them we had a great builder.  Erik wasn't just our builder, he is now our friend.

I initially met Erik Johnson in 2002 when I bought a “spec” house that he had built.  We were so impressed by his craftsmanship, professionalism, and manner that we asked him to build another property in 2006.  He was a gentleman throughout, and I now consider him a friend.  Erik is not a builder who slaps up houses while racing the clock and employing any laborer he can find.  He is an artisan who is hands-on at the job site and enlists only similarly motivated assistants.  His subcontractors all seem to give him priority status.  If I should decide to undertake another building project on LBI, Erik would be my only choice.  In fact, I would do it all on a handshake.

We chose Erik because he was one of the few builders who said that he would be on-site just about every day and would be doing most of the finish work.  In addition, he was very proud of the houses that he built and used materials that were a notch above most other builders on the island.  His process appears to be a well-oiled machine, but what I like the best about Erik is his integrity and his interest in building a house that we would enjoy.  Erik always made himself available to us to discuss the project, but if you call Erik during his workday don’t expect to have a long conversation.  As I came to appreciate, when he is working, his focus is on his work and finishing on schedule.  If you contact him early, late, or on weekends, he spends as much time as you need.
