    Canyon Consultant LLC
    Josh, owner/contractor, did an outstanding job. He did a complete plumbing renovation throughout the house, as well as painting, bathroom remodels, new flooring, and general handyman work.
    At the start of the project, we spent about a month with pre-construction interviews to figure out exactly what I was looking for, even helping me with design elements, and reviewing the budget and schedule. He was completely open to showing me what tasks would add or deduct cost on the project. I needed a lot of hand-holding (having never done anything like this before), and he was wonderfully patient with my changes and doubts.
    Once we'd settled on a plan, he put together a complete package including an action plan of all the tasks, a detailed schedule, itemized budget, and listing of subcontractors for me to review with the final contract. During the contract & package review, we went through all the details, and talked about the daily set up, clean-up, and what kind of mess I could expect with each phase of the project. Since we'd settled on most of the design elements during the pre-construction work, he purchased all of the product ahead of time. He started work right on time and the schedule was set up so I could see exactly what he was going to accomplish everyday. Once a week we went through the progress and talked about any changes or updates I wanted to make. Since product had been prepurchased, the entire project went smoothly without any delay. In the end, he actually finished a couple days early.
    As can be expected in every project, I made changes along the way. Josh did an great job helping me to understand the scope of the changes and how they would affect the schedule and budget. For the larger changes, he did formal Change Orders so I knew what it all meant and have it in writing for the record. At the end, when we reviewed the final budget and changes, everything tracked and there were no surprises.
    His craftsmanship and attention to detail was excellent. His tile work was top-notch without dips, gaps, or any irregularities. The plumbing renovation required new drywall and wall texture in every room. Once done and repainted, there was no visible difference to indicate where the walls and ceilings had been opened up. Paint lines were crisp and professional.
    I will definitely use Josh for all my remodeling/handyman work in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone who asks.

    Our experience with Raimo Construction has been excellent.  Of the three bids we received, Raimo's was the middle.  The price was fair, and the quality of the work and Raimo's professionalism has been worth every penny.

    We were looking for a General Contractor that we trusted to make many of the detailed decisions after getting to know us.  Bill Raimo filled this role well.  He took the time to understand our goals for the project and our level of interest in the day-to-day decision-making during construction.  For the items we needed to specify, Bill made us aware early so we had plenty of time to consider our options and get back to him without feeling rushed.  His effectively managed us as his customer in a friendly and collaborative manner.

    We lived in the house during the remodel, which took about three months.  The subcontractors hired by Raimo Construction did a great job of respecting our living space.  We appreciated that off-hour and weekend work was cleared through us in advance.

    We experienced multiple late-night rain and wind storms during the construction.  Bill was proactive about visiting the job site even off-hours to check on the effects of the weather and to take action when needed to avoid any damage.  

    In these first five months after the completion of the project, punch-list items have come up.  All punch-list items have been minor - e.g. some tile grout work and some tweaks to our hot water system.  Raimo Construction has been very responsive in following up and making sure the items get addressed in a timely manner.  No major issues have turned up

    We look forward to working with Raimo Construction again.

    Because we contracted for the house after it was started, we were not allowed as many choices. The timeline to make changes was very short and we had lots of trouble scheduling with the design center. One of our selections turned into a big problem in the kitchen because the wall tile did not come out as expected. After some negotiations they finally allowed us to make a change and we were compensated. We are a bit unhappy with the carpeting. The quality is not good. We were able to change the original designated color, though. We are also disappointed with the lack of and placement of some outlets, lack of towel racks and the quality of the moldings. Somehow a piece of molding got chipped and the result shows that the moldings are basically made of paper (recycled stuff is good, I guess). They do tend to skimp when they can. McStain has pretty good customer service system and they contacted us 4 times in the initial year to make repairs. However, they could do better.

    Rob [our Project Manager] was very professional and kept us well informed every step of the way. Even your subcontractors were polite and respectful of my home.?
