Wonderful, on time work. Ralph can up with original ideas that helped the project be better than we imagined!
As an architect, I have worked with many contractors over the years, but RK Construction has been consistently reliable and their workmanship second to none. I am a trustee of a condominium residence in Cambridge and RK has worked on many of our projects and the results have always been impressive. They call almost daily to review what work was done that day and often recommend good solutions to problems that get uncovered during construction. The have also worked on commercial projects with our firm with the same care and diligence.
I hired RK Construction to install vinyl siding and new gutters on my house with associated insulation and electrical work. Ralph made suggestions and guided me through the process. His team did an excellent job and his on site project manager, John, was available on a daily basis to answer my questions. I have additional projects and RK Construction will be the company I call.
Look no further! RK construction is the best around and I did my home work after a neighbor of mine was taken advanage of by a contractor that I almost used! What an amazing job RK CONSTRUCTION did on our roof and front porch ( which because of carpenter ant damage and neglect was a total mess). The work done was top notch! The workers were respectful and knowledgeable yound men who take such pride in there work ! You know your in good hands when the workers brag about what a GREAT guy they work for and they were right! Ralph (the owner) went above and beyond to help us with our project. We will NEVER use another contractor! Ralph and team....we are forever grateful thank you so much for ALL your hard work. Ralph we owe you big that final bill was surprisingly low... Thank you!

Over the past 3 years, RK Construction Company has updated our kitchen, enlarged our foyer and removed an interior wall to open up the living room, including all necessary roofing, siding, painting, electrical, plumbing and flooring work.
We have been very satisfied with every project. Ralph Khirallah plans meticulously, preps a home for maximum protection and dust-control. We stayed in our home through the projects, and every day they left the house as clean as possible and making sure our needs were met.
Ralph uses high quality suppliers and excellent subcontractors. To the extent possible they stay on schedule, explain any difficulties they encounter, watch their subcontractors very closely, and respond quickly to calls, texts, and emails seven days a week. Ralph himself visited the work site each day and mentored his staff to his high standard. His site supervisors, Dana, John and Jerry are professional and friendly in addition to being excellent craftsmen and leaders.
Ralph and his team take great pride in delivering a professional quality product. While mindful of our wishes, Ralph gave us advice as if our projects were his own. We will turn to Ralph for our next project and recommend RK Construction Company without reservation.
Over the past 15 years RK Construction has done three projects for us: an extensive demolition and addition of a second-floor family room, 3-season porch, bedroom and bathroom; a bathroom renovation; and, most recently, a kitchen and laundry reno plus installation of a central air conditioning system in our 90-year old home. We have been more than completely satisfied with every project. RK plans meticulously, preps a home for maximum protection and dust-control, and takes great pride in achieving a perfect outcome. Their construction staff are gentlemen, and their supervisors see through every detail with utmost commitment to their customers as individuals. To the extent possible they stay on schedule, explain any difficulties they encounter transparently, watch their subcontractors very closely, and respond quickly to calls, texts, and emails seven days a week. We stayed in our home through all three projects, and every day they left the house as clean as possible. Their estimate for the first project was more than competitive and since then we simply wouldn't consider working with anyone else because of our complete trust in the company. Ralph Khirallah himself stays very close to the job and he has mentored his staff to reflect his high standards as a builder and a gentleman. Renovation is challenging, but we have actually enjoyed the artisan spirit of the crews and the chance to observe their craftsmanship.
From September 2016 to April 2017 Ralph and crew built a 1-story addition on our 1920 3-bedroom house in Roslindale. Plus a full kitchen gut & renovation, new unfinished basement room/new foundation, new roof, exterior & interior paint, replacement of the heating on the first floor, new built-in shelving in the living room, new front steps, and new covered porch out back.
Dana our site supervisor was on there long hours every day and was excellent at communicating with us about each step of the process and when any decisions had to be made. Ralph and Dana really "got" our philosophy and met our need for high quality work and materials without going over budget.
We lived in the house through the entire project and everyone was very sensitive to our needs and worked around us when they needed to.
They worked closely with our architect throughout the process, and we used a lot of their suppliers who were all great to work with (Republic Plumbing, Tile Factory, Anslone Flooring, Buonato Granite, Kitchen Views). On time and under budget, super professional and they stand by their work. . . . they'll be there when they say, they'll be responsive to your emails/calls/texts, and they are honest. RK will be our first choice the next time we need any work done.
RK Construction Company is Top-Notch! This year Ralph and his team update the following on our home:
- New Hip Roof Entry
- New Windows and Trim
- Deck Renovation
In addition to the projects above they ate wrapping up whole house painting and will then begin a Master Bathroom renovation. Ralph and his team have earned our trust by delivering a professional quality product with a friendly and approachable demeanor. Ralph treated our projects as if they were his own home - a quality very hard to find.
With encouragement we recommend RK Construction Company for your next home renovation.
After getting several consults/estimations from a variety of construction companies, I decided to go with RK Construction. I am so happy I had RK renovate our bathroom. After the bathroom was gutted, there were unforeseen issues. Ralph explained everything, got all the permits, gave me a timeline and suggestions as to how to maximize the bathroom space. Having had other construction work on our house, I anticipated delays, workers not showing up, and the cost exceeding the initial quote for the work being done. I can honestly say Ralph stuck to his word on all counts. My bathroom is beautiful and is my favorite room in my house. Ralph's work exceeded all of my expectations! I would recommend RK construction to everyone.
Last fall RK Construction did an excellent job rebuilding our entry vestibule and front porch. The cantilevered canopy above needed to be restructured after decades of settling below it. We had to wait months to squeeze into Ralph's busy schedule, but I'm so glad we went with them. I did not expect the high level of craftsmanship based on the fact that they were not the highest bidders. Boy, did they exceed our expectations! It makes me think that the other contractors were overpriced. Ralph has loads of experience and his pricing (not to mention scheduling) is spot on because of it. Also, he's not going to gouge you if there are design changes or changes due to unforeseen conditions. He's fair. And ethical. He does things by the book. In fact, our inspector was familiar with RK Construction's work and said we don't need to worry about them, unlike others. "They're good."
As an architect, I really appreciate their attention to detail. We had Dana as the supervisor/lead carpenter, and he was fabulous! He was there early every morning and managed the job smoothly. He was always one or two steps ahead, making sure the architectural details were resolved, samples were approved, custom millwork was on its way, etc. He was easy to work with and offered suggestions if he thought a detail could be improved. All the guys on the job, Jimmy and Jay, were super nice, very professional, and took pride in their work. In fact, my neighbor who is a retired contractor was impressed by their work. High praise indeed, since I've observed him meticulously restore his own beautiful Georgian house over the last decade.
I feel like all of Ralph's guys go above and beyond to please the clients. (I could go on and on about Billy and the terrific job he did staining four different wood species to match...but that would take up too much space.) His subcontractors are all top-notch as well. And he's got a great cabinetmaker!
In summary, whatever your construction needs, I would recommend RK Construction without hesitation.
