Why Choose RG Construction Services?

Our Clients Speak to Our Sucess

RG Construction did an awesome job on our remodel. We had them install flooring, replace a couple exterior doors, full bathroom remodel and kitchen counters/tile work. They are a company you can depend on, they are more than fair, and go the extra mile for you. I feel the true test of a contractor is how they handle problems that always seem to come up in every job and RG handle those issues like the professionals they are. Always up front, honest, responsive and they really care about the customer. I would recommend them to any one looking for a contractor. We will definitely use them again in the future. Thank you RG for our remodel and the care that was behind it all!

I was soooo lucky to find RG Construction Services for my kitchen remodel! This was my first remodel project. The Team and Richard were wonderful. All the Contractors were courteous, professional and did a great job. I got more done than I expected and even came in a little under Budget. I would highly recommend RG Construction and have to my neighbors!!

We used Rg construction to add an additional 735 sq ft to our existing house, as well as replace all the floors, light fixtures and added a kitchen pantry. They were prompt, responsive and receptive to changes along the way. They were upfront about costs and worked with us to accommodate our budget. I would highly recommend them, and we would use them again for other major projects!

We worked with Richard and his team on a total kitchen remodel of our 1931 house. We had a pretty firm budget and Richard was totally upfront about costs and worked with us to find selections that would keep us within budget. From the project management onsite, to the help from the design team and responsiveness when any issues/questions came up, everyone on the team was really top notch. I recommended RG to my best friend who is now mid kitchen remodel and also very happy with the process. We will definitely use RG again for any major construction needs.

Richard, Brett and the RG team came to our rescue when our framing job got botched by another company. They swooped in to manage the rest of the framing stage, and turned what started as a nightmare into a beautiful chapter in our brand new home build. Incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and pleasant to work with. Highly recommend these people to any owner-builders in the area!
