About Us

Meet Our Family Owned-and-Operated Team

Kevin and Lindsay Ayres own and operate Jacksonville Contracting Company and both take a very proactive role in managing the business. They reside in Street, MD with their three children.

Formerly known as The Jacksonville Construction Company, the company was started by Dean Ayres, who earned a wonderful reputation for quality work in the Baltimore area. The company was known for saving customers the cost of replacing concrete surfaces with their innovative mud-jacking techniques. 

Dean’s son, Kevin has expanded the service area into the greater Baltimore metro area while maintaining the excellent reputation the company holds.  With a commitment to personal customer service, clear communication, and quick response time, Kevin and his team have strengthened relationships in the community and with commercial clients he serves.
