“Ron Houston was the contractor for the expansion of our house and we have been very pleased with the result. A passer by would not guess that the house has been enlarged, and the interior work is excellent. The work was concluded on schedule and in an orderly fashion. So pleased were we that we called him again to remodel our kitchen. Ron makes every effort to keep costs within his contract estimate and closely monitors his projects. He suggests ideas and opinions that are so helpful in making the best choices.”
— Mr. and Mrs. David Bergner Arlington, TX
“The first contractor who bid on m remodeling job could only see the difficulty of accomplishing what I wanted to do— he was so negative that I wondered if I was making a big mistake. But then came Ron Houston, who immediately saw the possibilities and was excited and enthusiastic from the beginning. You and your crew captured my vision and turned it into a lovely reality, doing first-class work in a timely and ethical manner. I love my “new” house, and I’m always delighted to recommend RHR Builders!
— Jan Penland
“I just wanted to tell your prospective customers what a great working relationship we have had and what a wonderful job your company has done on our remodeling projects.

RHR Builders has successfully completed several remodeling projects for our company. Ron has always considered our needs, such as time scheduling, materials requirements, and even noise level, making thoughtful suggestions, while at the same time listening to my ideas and somehow managing to incorporate everything into a successful project. He was always willing to make changes and accomodate us if a better idea presented itself. Craig Pyles has done a beautiful job on our custom cabinets and trim throughout the remodeled areas. I was able to give him an idea of what was needed; Craig worked up the design and produced some beautiful cabinetry. I would not hesitate to work with Ron and his crew in the future.

Thanks Ron and Craig for the beautiful job you have done for us. Our office is a much nicer place to work. We receive many compliments from our customers, vendors and guests.”
— Kathleen Walker
“It’s too bad out guests do not use our master bedroom so they can admire your craftsmanship. It has been 8 years since you finished the project, but oh! we enjoy the room, money well spent too. And it looks good, even brand new. When we think of the next project, we will certainly call on you.”
— Mary Ann and John Judge
The most loyal, honest and trustworthy contractor that I have had the pleasure of working with. He is very creative and positive in the way he looks at a job and follows through to deliver a beautiful project. He allows me to do my job as well so that I can compliment the already lovely home he has renovated
— Diana Nesuda
We receive compliments all the time for our newly remodeled guest bathroom. Thanks for saving me when I got in over my head trying to remove old wallpaper and texture the walls. Your painter skillfully covered those problem areas in the sheetrock, and his expert texturing gave the room a whole new feel. The special-order countertop is exactly what we had envisioned, and you guided us to hardware that completed the look perfectly.
In addition to your good advice about design and finish details, we appreciate the professionalism of your work teams—clean, efficient, and always courteous. We highly recommend RHR Builders!
— Paul and Nancy Witt
My husband and I really appreciate having a great company like RHR Builders. They did a room addition for us several years ago, and we constantly get compliments on it. Recently, we had some less exciting renovation work done — as usual, in a first-class way by Ron and his folks. One great thing with RHR Builders is their attitude. Every job, whether big or small, seems important to them. Their work is top-notch, and above all, they are honest and ethical — very important (and rare) things in today’s world. I can’t imagine using any other contractor, and we plan on continuing to do business for years to come!
— Mike and Shawn
We loved our home but the master bathroom was tiny: a 30inch shower, and no bathtub, and had no ideas of what or if anything could be done with this room. We just knew my husband needed a bigger shower and I missed having a bathtub.

Ron walked in; looked at the bathroom, looked at the dressing area in the bedroom. Within minutes he excitedly had a vision of what could be done. We could not envision this but it sounded very good. Our bathroom is amazing. The ceiling was raised, the wall separating the bathroom and dressing area was knocked out. Now we have a corner whirlpool tub, large shower; the walls around the commode are made from antique doors we found in a junk yard (Ron’s idea). I did not want the traditional sink unit so Ron had his cabinet maker build a cabinet. Ron utilized every inch of space; even built a small corner cabinet in between the shower wall and the commode, a brilliant idea and incredibly useful. The crowning glory of the room, double French doors separating the bathroom and bedroom. Amazing, unique and perfect.

The blessing of this bathroom now is the corner tub. Our 2 grandchildren spend happy times in the “ocean” as they call it.

Thank you Ron for an exemplary job, we recommend you and your team with the greatest of confidence.
