About Us
We are a husband and wife whose complementary backgrounds in construction and design drew us to each other and to start our own full service construction company. Since 1995 we have provided projects for Bay Area families as if their homes were our own. 

Our Business Philosophy

Our philosophy is to maximize communication with all of the members of a Project Team (Builder, 
Subcontractors, Owners and Architect), and provide the highest possible value, leading to savings of 
money and time as well as a higher quality end result.
J. Burke Builders is committed to providing value to our clients by:
  • Listening to our Clients and constantly striving to exceed their expectations
  • Being thorough in the execution of every phase of a project, from budget planning to a well-built finished product
  • Foreseeing potential problems before they happen to minimize cost and schedule overages 
  • Seeking and maintaining exceptional relationships with Subcontractors that are the most knowledgeable in their fields.
As a result, approximately 95% percent of our business is by referral from past clients.

Our Experience

Jeff Burke, Owner, has been working in residential and commercial construction for the past 27 years. He began his career in construction with a strong foundation in the hands-on aspects of carpentry working as a Union trained Journeyman Carpenter and then Job Foreman on various high-end residential and commercial projects all over the Bay Area. In 1995 he obtained his General Building Contractor's License and began a small quality-minded construction company. He has successfully completed numerous projects with an emphasis on custom homes, residential remodels and additions. With a hands-on approach, a broad knowledge base of all aspects of construction and attention to detail, he has gained a strong reputation as a quality builder.

Andrea Burke has a Masters Degree in Architecture from Harvard University, Graduate School of Design. She has worked side by side with Jeff for over 18 years completing numerous design/build renovation projects. Her strong communication skills and strategic nature are particularly valuable in the pre-planning stages of a project. In addition to having a background in design, Andrea is also a licensed Realtor.
