"We were first time homebuyers, with a home that needed a lot of work! Rick came in and gave us his honest opinion as to what needed to be done and what didn’t. He was great at keeping us on budget and helping us to find solutions or alternatives to problems that came up during the project. Every piece of the project was done with care, and we couldn’t be happier with the work. When we decide to do larger projects in our home, later down the line, we will definitely use him again."
"Our very happy ending – I decided to turn my small patio into my own private tiki lounge. I hired a guy down the street to build a patio cover. After paying him a very large sum of money, I was left with a small amount of lumber, and no patio. My boyfriend contacted his friend who happens to be a building inspector. He deals with a LOT of contractors, and he said Richard French is THE best. So I called Richard, and we got together and worked on plans and ideas. Richard would send me pictures, and I would send him pictures, he would make so many trips to my place to get my thoughts on his ideas, and to show me so many options. I could tell right away that I had the best person for the job. He and his help would always be on the job first thing in the morning, work a full day , and clean up every speck of dust before going home at night. I had a beautiful patio cover in just a couple days, it was perfect! I was so happy, that I asked Richard if he could build me a raised planter, and install artificial turf as well. He said “sure!,” so then we started planning what materials we could use to make it look tropical, and again Richards ideas and workmanship were spot on. I have to say that I could not be more happy with my Tiki lounge, and I give all the credit to Richard French, HE is the best!"
I love my bathroom! My bathroom is exactly what I wanted and was completed earlier than expected. He gave me continual updates and options when I needed assistance. Professional and detailed is how I would describe his work. I will be using him again. On a side note, he also went above and beyond to make sure my pets were safe. Thank you again!
"Richard remodeled our bathroom last year and we were very pleased with the quality of his work. He is honest, punctual, very professional and pays attention to details. His sub-contractors were professional as well and pleasant to work with. We highly recommend Richard French"
"The Board of Directors of the Lafayette Condominiums hired RBF Construction to rehabilitate a former ballroom into a functioning gym and to install ADA compliant bathrooms in one of our ground floor commercial spaces.
As manager of the building, I found Richard French and his staff to be responsive and professional. They kept the sites clear during construction and arranged for excellent subcontractors! They finished their work sooner than expected and on budget!
I'm happy to recommend their services!"
"I would highly recommend Richard B. French Construction without reservation for any home construction and remodeling plans you or others might consider. Rick’s professional demeanor and insightful practical experience came into play from the first day we walked our job, to the final walk through of our remodeling project.
Some of the things I appreciated most about working with Rick on my project was his eye for detail, candid, forthright, and honest approach to the various tasks of our remodel, including his timeliness, punctuality, and follow up communication. Rick’s wisdom acquired through years of experience contributed countless esthetic tweaks and alterations to our original plans that fine tuned the outcome of the remodel, including many $ costs reductions and savings with the final outcome clearly exceeding our expectations on time and on target.
If you want outstanding work to be done, I would put Rick French at the top of your list. He is at the top on mine, in fact, I was so satisfied with Rick’s work that I am having him work on my next home project. "
"I think the thing I appreciate the most is you and your subs willingness to stay engaged after your contract is finished. That level of support is exemplary."
"Our addition is amazing! Rick pulled it off on a short calendar with minimal disruption to the rest of the house, found solutions to every problem that came up, and it looks like it cost twice what it actually did. My favorite room in the house."
I knew from the referral I got that Rick was good. I just had no idea how good until the project started. Work started ahead of schedule and, if the rains hadn't interrupted, would have been done early as well. You know you've got an exceptional contractor when he shows up every day for weeks, rain-or-shine, to work on and supervise the job personally. The horror stories I'd heard of other contractors bidding a job, starting work, then disappearing for weeks at a time leaving rubble in their wake (and of cutting corners where corners shouldn't be cut) were totally absent with Rick. Rick's way of doing business is exceptional; his focus on satisfying me, the owner, was incredible. I might have been able to find a "lower" bid initially, but I'm convinced that in the final cost, Rick's way of doing business was actually the highest possible quality at the most reasonable cost.
Having worked with Rick French on several projects, the one thing that truly stands out more than the quality of the work performed is his dedication to getting the job done right. Rick is professional, knowledgeable and efficient. Each time he has delivered on time and on budget. We are small business owners and Rick understands what our needs are --he outlines a schedule and meets deadlines, looks for ways to keep costs down and communicates with us every step of the way. Our companies share the same commitment to providing our customers with exceptional quality and customer service.
This is a quality company run by quality people that we have enjoyed working with.
What can I say?! RBF Construction did a great job remodeling our bathrooms! From the initial quote to the finished work, Rick and his crews couldn’t have been better. They always kept us posted on the work. They were very friendly. They started and finished the job on time. And they were definitely one of the most competitively priced. We would absolutely use RBF Construction again!
