  • Kris Hazenfield

    Great experience, attention to detail, communication. Highly recommend. Would work with again

  • Kent A. Lewis

    Rick is an especially responsive and thoughtful contractor. His team is first rate; friendly, industrious, and exceptionally competent. In the execution of my bathroom, he and his staff came up with a creative solution to the shower drain that made a more dramatic and seamless space. He was very accommodating to changes and additions to the construction process. When my personal subcontractor for my floor refinishing suddenly balked at the job, He had his subcontractor come in. That individual did, I believe, an even better job than the person I initially selected. The final product is terrific and has exceeded all my expectations. My entire experience with Rick was professional and pleasant. I most heartily recommend Rick for any home remodeling project you might have. I am looking forward to having him work on my next phase in the coming months!
