Words are inadequate to express our deep appreciation to John and his project manager,Mark,for the outstanding work they did on our kitchen, half bathroom and mudroom renovation! Notably, the majority of the work took place in our absence,this past winter.Mark and John were not daunted by the many challenges of renovating an older home.Incredibly,the finished result not only met, but exceeded,our expectations! John, Mark,and their craftsmen continually kept their eye on attending to every detail, so that the finished result reflected our vision, as well as the best features of our 1929 home.The few issues we had were acknowledged and easily corrected; e.g. a few back splash glass tiles needed to be replaced. Best of all, the project was completed on time and within budget!!! All the little extras Mark and his team did for us were and are also much appreciated! We look forward to having RH Homes remodel our master bathroom this winter!

We are delighted with our kitchen remodel. Over the course of a year we removed a wall, redid the lighting and put in new cabinets and counters. John worked with us to accomplish the result in stages, that made it manageable and comfortable.
We would heartily recommend him to all.

My wife and I couldnt be more pleased with the installation of our new bathrooms. John Ricks, the owner, and Mark, the Project Manager, were a pleasure to work with and extremely professional during every step of the renovation. Johns entire team of craftsmen were punctual, efficient, trustworthy and professional. During the project a few changes and additions were requested and John was very accommodating. John and Mark were very easy to work with and eager to please. If there were a problem, it was taken care of immediately.
We were very impressed with John and his company from the beginning. His estimate was fair and he stuck to it. We had a deadline to meet and he met it. We were confident enough to give him and his people access to our house even when we couldnt be there. We have no qualms in recommending John to anyone with a similar project.

This was my first personal remodel experience – mainly the kitchen and bathrooms. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect and was a bit overwhelmed with the process and the decisions to be made, but luckily I chose RH Homes! John Ricks was very helpful during each step of the process, and both he and Mark made it easy to deal with any questions, issues or changes that came up. They were respectful of my time and my home and I really appreciate everything they did for me. I am very pleased with the results and I would definitely recommend RH Homes!

We have hired many contractors over the past 20 years, not only for remodel projects but also for custom home builds. At the end of each project, we were more than glad (to put it nicely) to part ways with the contractor. However, that was not the case with RH Homes. John was, hands down, the best contractor we have ever hired. First and foremost, the quality of the work was top-rate. But beyond that, John was so incredibly easy to work with, even under the occasional challenging circumstance, as was Mark Heilbrunn who works with John as the on-site supervisor. We would hire, as well as recommend to others, RH Homes again, without hesitation. We are so pleased with the final result!

The team was very professional and great to work with. Listened to my requests and did a great job of following up on each item. Scheduled around my own needs such as moving in, completing work before company arrived, etc. Very high customer service. Any time I brought up issues or made changes, they addressed very quickly. I was very pleased with work and enjoyed working with the team.
John Mast-Finn

Very friendly and patient with my questions. Excellent craftsmanship and a great value. Would recommend and will hire again.
Robert and Avis Gloeckner

They did a great job. We are completely satisfied. Best contractor we ever worked with.

Wanting to rehab the bathroom of our 1919 home, we received a recommendation from a friend, “R. H. homes, John Ricks.” John’s bid for the work, which was a moving target, this being our first remodel, was detailed and specific. He bid changes we had mentioned only as “possibilities,” thus making costs part of our plan.
In the bidding process, John was available face-to-face, walking us through the project we selected. He was open about possible contingencies in old houses. From start to finish, the sub-contractors were easy people to have in our home. The project was minimally inconveniencing thanks to John’s planning. Workers answered questions, worked promptly, comported themselves as guests in our home, and cleaned up at the end of the day.
The project was completed on schedule. John and sub-contractors work as a team and show mutual respect and regard. From demolition through final touches, workers showed skill, artistry, and admirable work-ethic. John continues follow-up to resolve unforeseeable glitches after final payment has been made. We would or will without reservation engage R. H. Homes again.

we had a main bathroom that needed attention, as well as an outdated entry way and powder room. John from RH Homes met with us, arranged for us to meet with suppliers for plumbing and tile, and we were on our way to a new home. John was responsive to my questions, gave me updates on the timeline, and overall did a fabulous job on our home. I would recommend John and RH Homes without hesitation.

I have a home built in the 1920s and hired RH Homes to remodel the kitchen/dining room areas and the master bathroom. The rooms were gutted, electric and plumbing were upgraded, walls were moved, new walls, flooring, and cabinets were installed. The entire renovation process for both projects went exceptionally well. RH Homes provided a very competitive and detailed quote with realistic allowances for materials (cabinets, granite, plumbing fixtures, etc.) The project completed in the estimated time frame and under budget, and John Ricks (the owner of RH Homes) did a great job communicating with me of what to expect throughout the entire renovation process and was very receptive to my changes/ feedback. He pays close attention to details and would make corrections before I had a change to point out imperfections and he would often make suggestions to improve the quality of the project, while always keeping my budget in mind.

John takes pride in the quality of his work, does a great job managing the subcontractors, and has the experience to anticipate and prevent project delays and unexepected costs. He is also very kid friendly, and was patient with my young childrens curiousity about the project and he was very careful to keep the areas as safe as possible. John also worked to minimize the amount of debris/dust from the projects -- which made it much easier to live in the house while the renovation was underway.

RH Homes built a large addition on the back of my house to accomodate a 14 x 14 foot kitchen, screened in porch and bedroom bumpout. They completed the interior and the exterior. It went extremely well. I submitted architect plans to about 5 contractors for bid and RH Homes won by a significant amount. John Ricks, the owner, started the construction in July and it was finished in November. They stayed with it throughout without interruption. John stayed in touch with me throughout the project, asked me questions to make sure it was being done how I wanted, responded to my questions without delay, and supervised the progress. His subs were all respectful and considerate. This was my first experience with a contractor and I was prepared for issues, but never had a single one! The whole project was completely stress-free. In fact, now that its done Im going into withdrawal and want to start another!

I really cant say enough about John Ricks and his ability to make it all so easy. His subs cleaned up after themselves, he let me know what was going to be happening next, he even has someone who comes in and cleans at the end of it! I am very, very happy with my new kitchen and porch and the entire process of getting them. Dont start a project without checking out RH Homes first.

We would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to John Ricks and his crew of R.H. Homes for the outstanding job performed on our master bath. Our initial contact with John was wonderful, the processes were explained thoroughly and creative suggestions were welcomed. Our renovated bath certainly exceeded our expectations. John and his staff were very competent and professional and went out of their way to make sure we were happy and understood each step of the project. Most importantly, they were extremely courteous to work with and they did an excellent job working with our busy schedules. The attention to details and workmanship was impeccable. We would highly recommend R.H. Homes for any building and/or renovation projects.

We appreciated the ease in which the work was done and look forward to future renovations with R.H. Homes.

We chose R.H. Homes to build our new home, and we could not be more pleased! From the planning stages to the final walk-through, our family was treated with the utmost respect by John Ricks! The entire process was very positive, smooth, and timely. We were always so impressed how John checked out each subcontractors work to be certain everything was done perfectly! We now live in a truly custom home with the memories of a happy building experience! We love our new home and know that it is an extremely solid, well-built house!

Our family and friends all marvel over the quality of everything from the inside to the outside! We would highly recommend any potential new home builder to choose R. H. Homes and enjoy your building experience with an honest, kind, sincere, and hard-working man, John Ricks! You will be glad you did!

We want to tell you how pleased we are with the work that your company provided us. The professionalism that you offer is evident in the quality of the finished product. We especially wanted to comment about John Ricks. He is outstanding! He was intentional about keeping us informed about the status of the project and the subcontractors; he somehow seemed to always be available for our questions, and he was very professional in every aspect of the work. We feel that the success of the work is due to his coordination and attention.

Thank you for a job well done. We will gladly refer you and will certainly contact you in the future.

Having our kitchen done through R. H. Homes was an amazing experience! The work that was done was extremely professional. We were given many different options to choose from.

R. H. Homes made us feel comfortable knowing that they were here to make us happy. John followed up with us on a regular basis and made sure everything was perfect. We definitely recommend R. H. Homes!

We desperately needed to replace the old cast iron plumbing in our circa 1913 town home. While we were tearing out walls to do this, we thought we would renovate the kitchen and bathroom as well. This must have been a crazy idea! We met with three contractors to understand what our project would cost. Two of them never came back while one sent an estimate that was more than the value of the house.

We knew there were a great deal of challenges in our place, but we really did not expect what happened. We were about to give up and sell when we were referred to John Ricks and his company RH Homes. John came in, listened to our needs, understood our tight timeline, and had no issue with our demands.

Well, we thought we would be OK after meeting with John, but we were not expecting the level of service and workmanship that we received. All of Johns work has been performed with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. He and his sub-contractors worked hard to limit the level of inconvenience we experienced. He was on time for every appointment, called as soon as there was a concern and offered clear options to resolve any issue. John scheduled regular walk throughs of the project and, most importantly, he answered his phone virtually every time I called. We were not easy on John either, but he performed under pressure, brought our project in on time, on budget, and far exceeded our expectations in every way. If there is ever an opportunity to recommend a contractor (and we have many times), RH Homes is my first choice.
