Ever since T.J. opened its doors in 1995, it’s owners Tom Taralla and Jeff Montgomery have remained hands-on from start to finish. With T.J.

In fact, T.J. was awarded the Builder of Integrity Award from the Quality Builders Warranty Corporation both in 2014 and 2016. T.J. is also a member of the North Central Home Builders Association. T.J. has built homes in over 20+ family-oriented communities throughout north central West Virginia and in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. The best marketing for a T.J. home is simply word of mouth. Because of their personal relationship and commitment to every customer, T.J. has a long list of distinguished, satisfied homeowners. If you are looking for options, T. J. Contracting & Custom Homes has you covered. T.J. has numerous floor plans to choose from ranging in style, cost, and square footage.

When you choose to build with T.J. Contracting & Custom Homes, no construction loan is needed. It is all handled in-house. So as a T.J. customer, there is only one closing – the final step before you get the keys to your new home. T.J. Contracting & Custom Homes offer a 1 year builders warranty, a 10-year structural warranty and a 6 month and 1 year appointment with every homeowner to handle any warranty items. In fact, every homeowner is provided with Jeff’s personal cell phone number at closing. Now that is a peace of mind that cannot be replaced!

"At TJ Contracting and Custom Homes, we make it easy and affordable for our new home buyers! We have honored this tradition for 20 years."

  • TJ Contracting was recommended to us by a friend who had used them to build a house in Morgantown. We found that with the prices and options TJ Contracting offered, nothing else was comparable. We even ended up making some changes to our original plans and TJ was more than accommodating to them. They were very quick to respond to our every need. Even after we moved in, Jeff himself stopped by twice within the first month to check in and see how things were going. We are really satisfied with the whole process. — Greg, Canterbury Woods (White Hall)
