Custom Home Builder & Renovations Team Exceeding Customer Expectations

The Joppa Group Construction Management – Premier Newburyport Craftsmen

The Joppa Group, a local Newburyport custom home builder with a strong reputation for building customized homes and managing complex home renovations, brings unmatched service, knowledge, and experience to the area. If you have a vision, this premier construction company has the ability to make it a reality. How does the Joppa Group differentiate itself from other builders? It starts with their commitment to providing exceptional service. The Joppa Group service standards were developed utilizing customer specific input, with a strong focus on clear communications, attention to detail, innovative solutions—and of course—top quality finish work.

In an industry where home builders often over promise and under deliver, The Joppa Group’s renovations team makes customer communication a strong priority. They invest time prior to the start of construction in order to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction. The Joppa Group works hard to gain a clear understanding of customer requirements, clarify project details, offer alternative solutions for consideration, and document the project plan in order to ensure that the execution is aligned with the customer’s vision. The Joppa Group knows first-hand that to be a top custom home builder takes considerable time investment, therefore they are selective with their work and careful to avoid taking on more construction projects than they can manage. They prioritize each customer and dedicate the time and resources necessary to ensure top notch craftsmanship. The Joppa Group strives to exceed customer expectations.

As an experienced builder of custom homes, the Joppa Group realizes that even with a clearly defined plan, there are often variables that may cause the original project scope to change. Understanding the nature of home renovations, the Joppa Group team is able to quickly adapt and always ready to explain options and offer creative solutions that often provide potential to enhance the original plan. While The Joppa Group works on a broad range of construction projects, they have a passion for renovating older homes and the experience essential to anticipate challenges and overcome common obstacles. As a premier custom home builder, they understand how to preserve the integrity, charm, and character of old homes while integrating modern conveniences, upgraded amenities, and maximizing the use of space. The Joppa Group has tremendous experience navigating the zoning and permit requirements that a construction company must manage to successfully renovate Newburyport’s historic homes. They also make safety a top priority, inspecting job sites daily to ensure the safety of customers and the Joppa team.

The Joppa Group was founded in 2016 by owner and Newburyport native Blake Wilcox. Blake enlists a team of equally skilled craftsmen that bring specialized expertise to each home renovation project. Blake’s background as a real estate developer strengthens his position as a top residential and commercial builder.

New Construction Meets Historic Homes of Newburyport

Historic Homes of Newburyport, new construction

At The Joppa Group, we have specialized custom craftsmen to usher Newburyport’s historic homes into the 21st century, combining a blend of interior new construction layouts and designs while protecting and preserving the historic facade and charm of our homes. Redesigning historic homes for today’s uses requires a complex and time tested process of careful planning and intelligent craftsmanship. Open concept layouts and vaulted ceilings are not what post and beam homes were designed for and often are not what they are even capable of structurally without significant repair.

It all starts with a vision of how the space will be used for today’s needs, recognizing limitations of the space and developing clever designs that often blend the character of a historic home into a modern layout.  Our process often demands that we quite literally build a new construction home inside the existing historic home. We do this in such a way, that if you were to remove the original historic structure there would still be a new home standing there. Our goal is always to maintain unique attributes of historic homes, especially if they add to the structural integrity such as chimneys or wooden support beams constructed from ships. Other features that clients frequently want to maintain are built-in china cabinets, fireplaces, elaborate ceiling moldings, mantles, and other class wood carvings.

As an experienced custom home builder, this is the level of care and attention we put into the basic framing. Our true passion comes to life when we wrap the kitchen in custom cabinetry and tile work worthy of a magazine cover.  Our vision transforms into reality everywhere as we layer in thousands of feet of custom trim work through bedrooms, hallways, living rooms, and mudrooms.  The final image is accented by custom lighting and splashes of texture. Whether it’s a bold doorknob made of glass or a glass door entering a custom built pantry, our spaces are meant to pull the dreams from inside your imagination and lay them out for the world to see and experience.
