Jay Merchant Builders, located in Elk Rapids, Michigan, has been constructing custom homes and remodels to the highest standards since 1992. Deep community roots, a focus on customer relations, and the satisfaction of our clients sets us apart. 

There is no job too large or too small for the Jay Merchant Builders crew. We construct new custom homes, remodel existing homes, including kitchens and baths, and provide window and door replacement services. Beautiful custom cabinetry and millwork is produced in our own workshop to the customer's specifications. 

Jay Merchant and his entire staff make sure every job is done correctly and that it meets our high standards. Each one of our team members brings  



unique talents and skills to the job, resulting in a superior finished product. We have the ability and experience to accommodate any style or request, ensuring that your project is designed with your style in mind.

Just as each home is unique, so is each client. Our goal is to help make each client’s personal home-building dreams a reality. Many of our happy customers have come back to Jay Merchant Builders a second or third time for construction and remodeling projects.

Whether you are thinking of giving your existing home a facelift, or want to build a new home, let Jay Merchant Builders open the door on a great building experience.
