Testimonials

We could not be happier with the work that Ralph Lewis did on our home remodel. Taking on a complete remodel of our 1910 home was very daunting, but Ralph's professionalism, work ethic, and attention to every important detail made the job rewarding and stress free. We are very proud of our new home and will enjoy Ralph's beautiful craftsmanship for years to come.

We recently completed - right on schedule - a whole house remodel working with Ralph Lewis Construction.

Ralph shared our vision for our rebuild. Some of the best features in our new home - the ones we appreciate daily and people notice when they first walk in -were the result of Ralph's contribution to the design process. Many of the details I envisioned for our home were hard to put on paper - Ralph did not just build our house he helped us create our vision - with the assistance of his talented crew.

As a very involved home owner I appreciated working with a contractor who valued my input and was willing to listen to my ideas. Ralph works hard to develop good relationships with his sub-contractors and as a result they are some of the best I have ever worked with. I experienced a willingness to respond any time I wanted a change made or was not sure about how a job was progressing. After hearing many a horror story and witnessing my sisters remodel disaster, I feel like we were fortunate to work with Ralph and his subs.

While building is Ralph's main business I also need to put in a plug for his talent working with concrete. Ralph created a beautiful and unique concrete counter for our bathroom that gets many compliments. There are many concrete fabricators around these days - and I looked at many of them. Ralph's work is at the top - the patina and finish are gorgeous.

I always wanted to have my kitchen remodeled, but I was afraid of not having a working kitchen for a long time--up to a year and a half downtime, I had been told. That was before Ralph Lewis Construction. The total remodeling time for my new kitchen, from demolition to finish, was less than four months, part of which time I could still work in it.

Ralph Lewis Construction did exactly what they promised. They showed up when they said they would. They charged exactly what they bid. And the work they did was fabulous--from installing beautiful custom-made cabinets to granite counters and limestone floors--everything was beautiful, on time, and well-priced. I couldn't be happier, and I finally had the kitchen of my dreams.

My family had the great pleasure of having Ralph Lewis and his team from Ralph Lewis Construction handle the remodel of our entire kitchen. Having heard how stressful a kitchen remodel can be we had put off this project until it screamed to be done. Surprisingly and mostly due to Ralph, the project wasn't stressful for us. Ralph is a consummate professional and very detailed oriented. He had a plan and a budget and he executed on the plan and held to the budget. We always knew what was happening, when it would happen and what decisions we had to make in plenty of time. Ralph worked very well with the architect and the interior decorator on the job. Most importantly I believe was the quality of his work on our project. He didn't cut corners and the work was done in a way that will hold up to the extensive use we give the kitchen. Our kitchen is so beautiful now and such a contrast to the "before" version that Gentry magazine included it in its August 2008 issue. FInally, there is the not trivial fact that Ralph is a wonderful family-oriented human being who is enjoyable to be around.
