We Love What We Do

Why Choose Us

Doing it yourself doesn’t always pan out. Rely on our knowledge and experience instead. Let's work together and make something great!

Jack Young was a licensed lead paint inspector for many years. Prior to that, he was a highly renowned contractor and developer, building several homes and developments in Central Massachusetts. He was also a Housing Rehabilitation Specialist for many years with the City of Newton. He wanted to bring his vast knowledge and experience into the realm of modern ideas. In 2002, his son-in-law, Shawn Young ( same last name but no relation) brought his creativity and extensive customer service experience to Ames & Young. Jack and Shawn became partners of one of the premier construction and lead abatement firms.

Throughout their years working together, they were a great blend of traditional concepts and values with a modern twist. They both wanted only the best for their customers and strived to easily guide their customers through anything from a small home repair to new construction. Ames & Young has built relationships with a variety of subcontractors as well as employees. Our subcontractors, such as electrical and plumbing, have decades of experience and are fully licensed and insured. We will not accept anything other than the best for our customers. Unfortunately, Jack is no longer with us. With his passing in 2010, Shawn and his employees continue to fulfill his legacy as well as begin a new legacy with Ames & Young, Inc.

We Truly Care

Our Promise to You

Ames & Young, Inc. was founded on basic principles. Integrity, honesty, and respect go a long way in the construction industry. We strive to give our customers a higher degree of professionalism and experience than is typical of our field. Ames & Young was founded by John A. Young ( his customers knew him as Jack) over 18 years ago, in 2001. At the time, lead abatement was becoming a significant and very important issue. Jack wanted to help his customers and bring his knowledge of lead and its effects to his customers.
