About us

The Jim Ostler Contracting Team started working together over 30 years ago when Maggie would go to work with her dad, Jim, and “mud the screws”. Though their career paths took different directions, construction has always been a father-daughter connection, and with the addition of Maggie’s husband Mike, who brings his own considerable management and renovation background, the time has come to put this team together to deliver excellent home improvement services.
So, when it comes time for your family’s project, you can trust our family to do the job.

Our ‘Peace of Mind’ Program

Do you remember the last time you changed your furnace filter? Is your bathtub caulking getting a bit scraggly?  It’s easy to get busy and miss these small but important To Do’s that could be affecting your comfort in your home. That’s why we have come up with an easy, affordable program to ensure your home maintenance is always caught up. We will attend to your home on a quarterly basis, complete a quick but thorough inspection, and provide you with a report on items we resolved for you, items you need to consider for the future, and items that need to be addressed right away. This is a great program for:

Elderly parents who need a bit of help around the house.

New home owners unsure of what to do.

Busy families who need their home time to be a rest, not more work.

Travelers who are away from home for periods of time.



With over 40 years as a renovator and general contractor, Jim knows that people have a choice when looking for someone to complete a renovation, and delivering value for their money is of utmost importance.


A background in property management means managing projects from small clean ups to full renovations, where time is literally money. Maggie ensures projects stay on time and on budget.


Whether starting a fresh project or wrapping one up, Mike knows the importance of keeping the client up to speed. From start to finish Mike is your “go-to” on all things communication.


In his role as Chief Life Balance Officer, Doug reminds the team to get lots of exercise (walks / ball chases), eat regularly (treats), and make sure to get enough sleep (naptime).
