Featured Reviews for General Contractors in Raleigh, NC
Home Upgrades, LLC
General Contractors in Raleigh, NC
"I'm so glad to have met Chris and the work that Home Upgrades, LLC did for me was top notch. Home Upgrades is very responsive in all communication from estimating to project execution to follow-up. Pricing was very competitive, and the quality of the work was exceptional. Every person that came to the site was courteous, professional, and obviously highly skilled in their area of expertise. They fixed an issue with a root cause that stumped at least 6 other businesses. Highly recommend and will be calling them again."

White Oak Custom Builders
General Contractors in Raleigh, NC
"White Oak Custom Builders (Justin Hartman) was the contractor for a very extensive remodeling project of my house in 2013. The scope of the remodeling involved window replacement (22 windows and 6 patio doors and all new interior doors), interior wall and flooring system replacement, three decks, a new roof structure (approximately 2400 sq. ft.) and all new interior trim for what became a three level house, originally built in 1950. While major remodeling is inherently stressful for almost any homeowner, Justin’s services as a contractor were invaluable, and I am extremely pleased with the final result. Specifically, I would give Justin top marks in the following areas: 1. Quality of work performed. The quality of work done was consistently top notch. Justin knowledgeable, skilled, and competent and is conscientious about following project specifications, and his work product rarely needs improvement or revision. 2. Project management and coordination. Justin’s prior experience working in construction really paid off. He was knowledgeable about all aspects of our project, and was able to plan, coordinate and manage the activities of different work crews effectively. He remained closely involved in overseeing the project from start to finish. His excellent attention to detail, strong organizational skills and commitment to follow-through are assets which enabled him to juggle the extensive details involved in our project without missing a beat. Justin’s familiarity with building codes also facilitated a smooth and hassle-free process when it came to building permits and inspection. 3. Integrity and professionalism. Throughout the project, I was impressed with Justin’s commitment to generating a top quality product, rather than maximizing his profit margin. When situations arose where extra work needed to be done (because of hidden problems that were not apparent until work on the house had commenced), Justin either (if it was relatively minor) took care of it, or (if it was more extensive) involved me in an informed decision making. 4. Effective communication. Justin kept me closely informed of work crew schedules, delivery dates, and projected completion dates of different phases of our project. His communication (whether by cell phone or email) was always clear, informative, and helpful. He was either available on his cell phone, or returned my phone call within 2-3 hours. We never had a single miscommunication throughout the project. 5. Flexibility and effectiveness in dealing with unexpected developments. When unforeseen problems surfaced (e.g., termite damage in a wall, structural problems with the existing floor and roof system), Justin worked diligently with me to identify a solution that was acceptable to me. He utilized resources effectively (e.g., recommending the services of a structural engineer in a limited fashion) and creatively to make changes necessary for implementing required solutions. 6. Sensitivity to worksite appearance and neighbor relations. Our project required huge dumpsters and a portable toilet (for the work crew), and there was very limited parking. Justin’s placement of the dumpster, portable toilet, and construction materials was based not solely on function and convenience, but showed a consideration for the aesthetics of the worksite. The work crew parked their vehicles in ways that were minimally disruptive to the neighborhood traffic, and their conduct never caused any discomfort to our neighbors. In the period of this project, there was not one single neighbor complaint! Instead, three different neighbors passed on compliments about the work. In closing, I am very pleased with the final product which Justin was instrumental in delivering, and I am extremely impressed with his work as a contractor. In a world where shoddy workmanship and poor service are unfortunately all too common, Justin is indeed a rare find. I would not hesitate to hire Justin again, or to recommend him to my friends and neighbors. I recommend White Oak Custom Builders to you most enthusiastically, and without any reservations."

Clearcut Construction, Inc.
General Contractors in Raleigh, NC
"Richard Ryder did a large renovaton for me including gutting my master bath and closet, upgrading two more baths, installing hard wood floors, installing all new light fixtures, widening closet doors, taking down a wall, and painting the entire interior. He is currently doing repairs on a second home we have recently purchased. My master bath and closet were a disaster. Richard not only refurbished the space, he completely redesigned it creating a spa like oasis that we still can't believe is ours. He did the carpentry on the built-ins himself. While we have worked with several competent contractors, no one compares to Richard Ryder. He can do anything from historic preservation to new builds to remodeling. He is a creative problem solver, a skilled craftsman, and a reliable, fair, and honest person. He offers a range of options for any job and stays on budget. When Richard works with you it is as your advocate; he works with you to get the best result for the most reasonable price. We feel blessed that we found him and he has our highest recommendation and our complete confidence."

Neuhoff Custom Builders
General Contractors in Raleigh, NC
"After my husband had an accident and was partially handicapped, Ken did an addition on our house that included an elevator and half bath. He also changed two steps to 3 steps and I had no idea that was even possible. And he turned a bathtub into a shower. Ken is wonderful to work with and his subs are equally nice. They were very neat which meant a lot to me. He has good ideas and suggestions and can help hold costs down when appropriate. He can explain how things need to be done. At another time Ken had all the duct-work in our crawl space and attic replaced and it was quick and neat."

Noble Renovation
General Contractors in Raleigh, NC
"Noble Renovations built an addition to our property and did major renovations to the main part of the house. This was a large project lasting 4 months. It involved all of the major trades, framing, drywall, plumbing, electrics, HVAC, painting, flooring etc. Steve's attention to detail and professionalism were second to none. Also his project management skills are very good and everything ran to schedule. Some issues were encountered along the way but Steve was solution orientated and came up with options/solutions. Steve kept us informed of progress and plans for up coming work. I would have no hesitation in using Noble Renovations again and recommending them."

David Price Construction
General Contractors in Raleigh, NC
"David came in and remodeled our kitchen with new granite countertops, sanding and repainting cabinets, installing new stovetop, faucets, sink, garbage disposal and insta-hot fixture, cleaned-up, and left it as new all when we were on vacation one week. He did a great professional job. I have used him for more major projects in the past, and I will continue to use him. His staff is courteous and very professional as well."

North Carolina Custom Construction, LLC
General Contractors in Raleigh, NC
"NC Custom Construction did an excellent job with our kitchen renovation. Rob and his manager Vance were on site often and were constantly in communication by phone and e-mail. Having heard many negative stories about renovations, my husband and I were wary going in to the project. We considered four contractors before hiring NC Carolina Construction. Rob told us exactly what to expect and gave us a timeline (that was met). There was one mistake on the framing, but Rob quickly had it corrected. With the exception of the painters (to whom I would give four stars), all the tradesmen Rob hired were excellent (five stars). Rob gave some good advice, saved us some money with a couple of suggestions and carefully checked all work. and ordered some retouches when he wasn't satisfied. He even noticed a small dent on the new refrigerator door (not installed by his men) and ordered a new one. Rob and Vance are extremely honest, straightforward and personable. We are very happy with the finished product , and highly recommend NC Custom Construction."

What is a general contractor?


General, or construction contractors, are often known as project managers. They oversee the entire remodeling or new home construction project and facilitate all day-to-day tasks that move it toward completion. A Raleigh general building contractor will work with your architect to review plan as you build a house and ensure everything is in place before work is started as well as arrange for permits and necessary inspections. While good local home improvement contractors in Raleigh will have the skills to handle certain tasks onsite, such as carpentry, he or she is also responsible for hiring subcontractors for the majority of jobs, such as electrical work, painting or plumbing. In addition, the general contractor should be on-site regularly to inspect the progress and resolve issues. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of general contractors: Architects & Building Designers, Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

Home remodeling contractors are a must for successful completion of a renovation. Because of this, it's essential that you do your homework before deciding on the right general contractor in Raleigh as you remodel or build a house. Inspect bids carefully. Was it ready when the contractor promised it? Was the bid for building a home unusually high or low? Each of these things can be very telling: A late bid may reflect timing standards, and an off-the-mark bid could be code for a pricey premium or a deliberate underbid to score the remodeling job. You should call references, carefully read reviews and visit completed projects in Raleigh, NC to see if they’re what you expect for your job. Once you do secure your local Raleigh contractors, read the contract very carefully to be sure everyone is on the same page.

Questions to ask prospective Raleigh general contractors:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • What qualities do you look for in your subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
