Quality isn’t only found in our homes but also in our service. When choosing JDM Andrews, new homeowners can feel assured that they are working side by side with an honest, caring builder. It is of the utmost importance for us to establish a strong relationship with each customer.

AWARDED 2015 Builder of Integrity & Best Builder

As a builder committed to quality, JDM Andrews is a member of the nation’s most selective new home warranty program, Quality Builders Warranty, which is backed by Liberty Mutual.

QBW builders have been carefully screened for technical knowledge, craftsmanship, and financial stability. The 10-year new home warranty industry began in the United States in 1975 as a method to restore integrity to the homebuilding industry by only doing business with the best builders. Although several companies in this industry have strayed from those principles, QBW has maintained the original intent of the industry by continuing to do business with only those builders who hold the highest standards of quality construction and customer services.

Our company, through hard work, unwavering integrity, and superior craftsmanship, has become one of the leading custom builders in Southern Ocean County, receiving various awards including Builder of Integrity by Quality Builders Warranty, Best Builder 8 times by the Times Beacon, Best General Contractor by the Manahawkin Awards Program as recent as 2015, and 2015.

QBW Screens builders for integrity so you don’t have to.

Family Owned and Operated

My name is Don Finelli, I have been building custom homes successfully since 1975. I formed JDM Andrews Construction, Inc. 25 years ago, naming it after my four children; Jennifer, David, Mary, and Andrew hence, JDM Andrews. The hope and vision of creating a family company at that time has come to a reality today, as Mary and Andrew have taken their respective positions, Vice President, and Project Manager. Together with Kathy Finelli, David Del Rio, Lisa Caldiero, and countless others, we can truly say, “From our Family to Yours.”

Don and Kathy Finelli
Don began his career 40 years ago building his first house in Fairfield, NJ. Twelve years later he was joined by his wife, Kathy, and together with their children, and hundreds of homes later, they brought JDM Andrews to be one of the leading builders in the greater LBI area. As local residents and owners of a family business, they have maintained a personal and business life of honesty, integrity, and quality workmanship that gained them the reputation and privilege of being associated with one of the areas leading custom builders.

Andrew D. Finelli
After graduating from Southern Regional High School, Andrew obtained an Associates Degree in Business. If experience is the best teacher, Andrew has it all. Being born and raised in this family business, Andrew has experienced all aspects of construction. Combined with his own unique vision and the time tested methods of operation at JDM, Andrew will ensure JDM Andrews' continued leadership role as LBI's quality custom builder.

Mary L. Finelli
Mary, a graduate of Southern Regional High School obtained her undergraduate degree from Rutgers University, graduating with honors in Economics. Mary's love of detail and numbers is a true asset for JDM, making her perfectly suited in her position as Vice President and Financial Controller. Mary shares her personal vision with that of JDM Andrews, "to lead based on honesty, integrity, and quality workmanship." Her competitive drive and pension for state of the art developments, assures JDM Andrews will continue to maintain its status as LBI's custom Quality Builder.

David DelRio
Having been in construction his whole adult life, Dave came to JDM Andrews over 10 years ago, bringing not only construction knowledge and a great work ethic, but also a personality that brightens our staff, customers and workers. He is truly a part of the JDM family who has contributed greatly to its success.

Lisa Caldiero
Our most recent addition and one of JDM Andrews treasures, Lisa joined JDM bringing extensive construction and real estate experience. Being versed in all aspects of construction, from permitting to Certificate of Occupancy, she has become an invaluable asset as she continues to uphold the values and expectations we strive for here at JDM Andrews.
