Very Happy with our new Kitchen!

We had a complete kitchen remodel as well as changes to the dining room and living room. Rich walked us through the process from start to finish, making sure we understood each step. He had good ideas for making the most of our space. He gave recommendations on quality materials at affordable prices and kept us informed throughout. The project was done in the expected time frame and the costs were as planned. He does quality work and we would definitely recommend him. He’s a professional! Also, he is really nice and a pleasure to do business with! We are very happy with our new kitchen!

I would recommend him for a kitchen remodel. 

“Rich was very friendly and was meticulous in the work done. He is a one man show so the job took a little longer than what I expected, however he did advise me up front that would be the case and he was there every day from start to finish of the project. I had cabinets, backsplash and under cabinet lighting installed and the extraction and replacement of my existing granite counters/sink/plumbing. He worked with me as I made changes along the way and gave his recommendation on what could be done. Overall he did a great job and I would recommend him for a kitchen remodel.”

Everything was timely, communicated, and completed to expectations. 

“As young homeowners, this was one of our first major interior projects, so we received several consultations and quotes. Rich immediately stood out among the competition as someone who was experienced, could be immediately trusted, would provide the guidance we needed when discussing and making decisions, and ultimately, do great work. Everything was timely, communciated, and completed to expectations. We are very happy with our new kitchen and the decisions Rich helped us make along the way. He and the vendors he brings to the table were a true joy to work with.”

He finished in 4 weeks – ahead of schedule.

“I hired Rich because he struck me immediately with his professionalism. He was always on time, returned calls promptly, provided a detailed bid with a blueprint of what my kitchen could look like and pointed me in the right direction on everything – appliances, countertop, cabinets, etc. I did some of my own pricing, to make sure that his vendors were competitively priced. And they always were. A kitchen remodel can be an overwhelming project to take on, but he managed everything exceptionally well, and I knew I was in good hands. My remodel included tearing out a wall, new cabinets, countertop, backsplash, appliances, plumbing, and lighting – in short, pretty much everything. And he finished in 4 weeks – ahead of schedule. Best of all – the final price was true to the bid. And – I absolutely love my kitchen. It’s beautiful. I’d definitely recommend Rich to anyone! In fact, I’ll probably hire him again for my bathroom remodel next. year.”

The tilework on the new backsplash is nothing short of amazing!

“Rich was great to work with, and we are VERY happy with the result. The tile work on the new backsplash is nothing short of amazing! He took care of all of the little details, made sure that we were informed along the way, and interfered as little as possible with our day-to-day lives. I HATE remodeling and redecorating, but even after the project, I’d recommend Rich in a heartbeat!”

When it’s time to remodel the bathrooms, we’ll call Rich!

“Rich listened to our wishes, asked questions to assure understanding, and offered additional options so that the end result of our kitchen and flooring remodel was better than we had ever imagined! Rich’s workmanship is exceptional; he always wants the customer to be satisfied. He kept us informed of the remodel timeline and costs. It is evident that he is passionate about his work and is fun to be around.  When it’s time to remodel the bathrooms, we’ll call Rich!!”

Great products for a reasonable price.

“I contacted Rich Larsen about fixing up my basement & possibly redoing the cabinetry in one or two of my bathrooms. I have never contracted anyone for remodel work before, so I was not really sure of the process, or costs it would entail. Rich was wonderful to work with. He walked me through every step of the process & was very conscientious of staying within my budget. I was amazed to find out that the basement would not be as expensive as I thought it might be, & therefore I was able to remodel my kitchen instead of the bathrooms. The craftsmanship is wonderful & I love both spaces immensely!! Rich is great to work with & the contractor discounts he is able to obtain from local businesses was very helpful in getting great products for a reasonable price. I will definitely be referring Rich to my friends & family as well as hopefully getting those bathrooms done sooner rather than later!!!”

We highly recommend him for any remodeling job.

“Rich Larsen remodeled both our bathroom, laundry room and lately kitchen. He does his job on the high professional level and with great craftsmanship.

Our laundry room was just a dark and dusty utility room with open walls and ceiling. Nobody thought that this room could look and feel as cheery and bright as it is today. All utilities are hidden now and I actually love to spend time there doing laundry.

Our bathrooms were done three years ago and still draw compliments from everyone who sees them for the first time. And my favorite and most important place in the house is kitchen. It was just a contractor grade kitchen and now it’s a real masterpiece of design and craftsmanship.

I am very glad we found Rich three years ago. Now our house feels like HOME! And we highly recommend him for any remodeling job.”

Kitchen is not only beautiful but is far more functional for my family.

“Rich Larsen did a fantastic job helping to make my vision become a reality! He was able to readily handle the challenges that come with updating an eighty year old home and came up with creative solutions to remedy any obstacles. What I ended up with is a wonderful kitchen that is not only beautiful but is far more functional for my family. Thanks Rich!”

He did the work efficiently, promptly and was respectful of our property.

“Rich Larsen remodeled our kitchen with new appliances, cupboards and floor in May, 2009.

He was very helpful and insightful with plans and was willing to work within our budget. He gave us some advice, without telling us what to do.

He did the work efficiently, promptly and was respectful of our property. He kept us appraised of his schedule; the work was done on time and within this estimate. When corrections or adjustments had to be made, he took care of them properly.

Our friends and family have remarked at how nice the kitchen and floors look. We would hire him again!”

We will definitely hire Rich Larsen for our kitchen remodeling when the time comes.

Rich Larsen remodeled both bathrooms in our home last year. Despite some setbacks he always had a creative solution to any problem. Rich is a great carpenter. He built mirror cabinets for us to match new cabinets in the bathrooms.

He was always on-time; we never worried about being late for work because of him. As painful and disruptive for the family remodeling could be, the end result was worth it. We will definitely hire Rich Larsen for our kitchen remodeling when the time comes.

Strongly recommend Rich for any remodeling project you may have.

Rich was very professional from the start. This was our first remodeling job and he made sure if we had any questions they were answered quickly and fully. He was very quick to respond with the original quote and additional quotes as we had him bid other jobs. We also felt he had our best interest in mind when dealing with the cabinet company. When a piece was not exactly right he made sure that is was corrected instead of just making it work. He made sure we were not too inconvenienced without a kitchen by not starting anything major over a weekend and leaving it unfinished. At the time of the remodel we were also residing our house, this required Rich to work around the other contractors and be flexible. After Rich had installed our cabinets, we were so impressed with his work, we asked him to do our backsplash. We were unable to find the tile we like at the location he had an account at, but he went out of his way to open an account at a different location where we found what we wanted. Rich also came back for repairs at no questions asked. The overall result was a kitchen we are extremely happy with. We would strongly recommend Rich for any remodeling project you may have.
