Ralph and his foreman John along with the crew delivered a professional and timely job on our new in-law apartment we are more than pleased and would highly recommend RK Construction.
We are enthusiastic endorsers of RK Construction. They did an absolutely incredible job finishing our basement in early 2020 and we could not be happier. We interviewed six contractors before selecting RK and it was no contest. Their craftsmanship is perfect, but the things that made them really stand out were their exceptional communication and their cleanliness. Ralph and John (our foreman) were available for phone calls and/or text messages whenever we needed them. They were friendly, on-time, and professional. The entire crew was always wearing shirts to identify themselves and they were respectful during a crazy time for us (my wife was nine months pregnant while they were doing their work). We have worked with several contractors over the last few years, but I can say with confidence that RK Construction will be our first choice from here on out.
My family had a wonderful experience with RK Construction. We did a complex kitchen/bath/mudroom/guest room remodel on an old home with lots of issues, and Dana and Ralph made things as painless as possible. Their work was excellent -- friends and family always compliment the beauty and quality of the job. After months of living with the finished renovation, I don't have a single complaint, and there's nothing I would change. RK finished the job on the day they said they would, and there was basically no punch list because the work was so carefully done. When one or two issues arose in the weeks after the project ended, Dana dealt with them the same day I texted him. Our experience was the opposite of all the stories I had heard from friends about their struggles to get a punch list finished. Dana also continues to answer my questions about home issues having nothing to do with RK's work; I'm sure he regrets giving me his cell number.
We lived in the house for the final few months of the renovation, and I was home with my three young children. I was apprehensive about the situation ahead of time, but I wound up being totally comfortable. Everything was neat and clean at the end of each day, they never left out dangerous things where my kids could get at them, Dana kept me informed about everything happening and who would be in the house, and the guys were kind to my kids. They still play games in which they pretend to be Derek and Dana working on a house, and Dana bosses everyone around.
We have a few more things we plan to do to our house, and we'll definitely hire RK when the time comes.
I cannot recommend Ralph and Dana more for any home projects; they were extremely professional, knowledgable, kind and take extreme pride in their work. They were on time and within budget and there were never any surprises or "upsells". I trust them entirely.
My wife and I recently had Ralph and Dana renovate our master bathroom to convert our oversized molding tub to a walk in shower with a sliding glass door. Since our first encounter you could tell that both Ralph and Dana were extremely meticulous and knowledgable; they took detailed notes of the project and measurements and noted any challenges unlike other contractors who would just ballpark values. It was also refreshing that both Ralph and Dana shared their feedback and opinions but at the end of the day respected our decisions; you never had to fear that they were "upselling" you.
We worked day-to-day with Dana who inserted himself seamlessly into our routine and household. He was extremely kind to my entire family and 1 year old daughter and was respectful of our property, he laid out protective coverings over the house even outside of the work zone and would clean / vacuum after every day. Dana was very communicative the whole time and would update you everyday; most importantly Dana stayed within budget AND within schedule, which was extremely impressive.
We loved working with Dana and his team so much and trusted him that we ended up adding additional work replacing our HVAC during our bathroom renovation, which was also quick and within budget.
Can't wait to work with Ralph, Dana and their team again!
We had the pleasure to work with Ralph, John and their team on a remodel for our upper level including open kitchen concept and bathroom. We were so pleased by the whole process and by the team’s professionalism. The work was of the highest quality and we were impressed by the attention to detail. The entire team was completely reliable and we appreciated the great partnership. We highly recommend R.K. Construction.
We worked with Ralph and Dana from RK on a complete remodel of our condo. The work included redoing the kitchen and all the bathrooms, adding a new bathroom, adding a window and a new bedroom, re-insulating the house, re-doing the HVAC system with new zones, custom carpentry, and replacing all of the doors, trim, etc in the unit. It was a big job but RK did a very complete and accurate job of creating the cost estimate and schedule. Where we went over, it was clearly communicated and was because of decisions that we made during the building process.
The work is top-notch, Dana and his crew were really great to work with, communicated pro-actively and really well, and followed up after the job to make sure that everything was working.
We love the home that they built for us and we recommend to anyone who's doing work on their home.
Friends and neighbors don't believe me when I tell them our renovation was done according to the time frame and budget that we were promised, but it's true! Ralph and his crew were highly responsive, respectful, and communicated clearly. Ralph provided clear documentation about the costs (work and materials) of everything we added or changed about the project. The work they did was beautiful, including gorgeous custom carpentry.
My husband and I were in an unfortunate situation where our prior contractor before abandoned our kitchen remodeling project midway after 5 months of no kitchen. RK construction took the job and it was completed in less than a month and was able to address the substandard work of our previous contractor. There was always a solution no matter how challenging it felt to us. Dana was assigned to oversee the project and provided excellence in all areas- craftsmanship, transparency, customer service and committment to completion of a project without compromising his masterpiece or timeline. We will definitely use them again for any future renovations.
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.
