"They put an on addition and a garage for our home. The job was done sooner than the date that was given and everything went really smoothly. It came out the way we wanted it looks good. i would recommend them. They did a great job and I think a lot of times you hear things like "it took so much longer than anticipated," but that didn't happen with us."

Remodeling Right
General Contractors in Providence
"Lou Lou's Decor, the interior design firm which designed this home, had the pleasure of working with Mike on this project. Mike's expert building skills transformed this home from ordinary to extraordinary! We work with very high end finishes and materials, and Mike was the perfect fit for the installation and construction. Mike is always thinking ahead, and provides great input to our designs from a construction standpoint. He is very dependable, always adhering to schedule and budget, completing his excellent work, on time and under budget that is! Since completing this complete redo of a master suite, powder room and master bathroom, Mike and I have collaborated on several other projects for my clients. He is my go-to resource for remodeling. I highly recommend bringing him on board for your next project!"

MRD Woodworking
General Contractors in Providence
"I hired this company to do kitchen cabinet refacing based on the high recommendation of a neighbor who is a contractor and who worked for MRD Woodworking in the past. The owner came to my home and then invited me to his very well organized woodworking establishment in South Kingstown, RI. The shop was clean and I go got pick out the cabinet design. The in shop consultation was very helpful, as I could observe the quality of the products that would be used. I also had a special stain color that I wanted for my base cabinets and the company matched it perfectly. The crew was on time, neat, very polite, and personable. Communication with the owner was good, as was clean up by the crew at the end of the day. I was very pleased with the end result and really do now love my kitchen. I would highly recommend them."

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 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 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 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 Providence to see if they’re what you expect for your job. Once you do secure your local contractors, read the contract very carefully to be sure everyone is on the same page.

Questions to ask prospective 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?
