Ray has done numerous remodeling jobs and a beautiful screen porch addition to our previous home. The work has always been outstanding, and once they started each job they showed up every day until it was completed and we were happy. They always did their best to keep the mess to a minimum and did a good job with final cleanup once the job was completed. When we recently decided to build a new home, our choice was obvious. I had designed our ranch home with the help of Ray so it was not a spec home. They did an unbelievable job on it and we absolutely love it! Ray was very flexible during the building process, he really wanted us get what we wanted. The house is built really well, I am a retired engineering technician and I was there everyday watching it go up. My neighbors even commented on how particular they were, getting everything right. You just don’t get that quality of work anymore! His son Raymond is an extraordinary carpenter and is really a perfectionist. He is very detailed oriented and is a great person to work with.
In 2013/2014 we had our garage converted into a master suite. He used our drawings and suggested additional ways to maximize space and streamline the process. He was great about contacting us whenever there was even a small question about how we wanted things to work. His work was done professionally, looked fantastic, and was reasonably priced.
RDK has performed many projects on our Lansing home over several years including building a large garage and as small as the replacement of a few windows. Each project was very well done. Ray has some excellent ideas on how the finished work should look. We have also been impressed with the excellent workmen that RDK employs.
RDK contractors built a curved deck and free-standing pergola for my back yard last year. They are beautiful and just what I wanted. I had my own electrician install the post cap lighting and run electrical to the pergola. The deck lighting is beautiful, especially in the evening and the stairs are illuminated for added safety. Ray and his team don’t cut corners. My deck and pergola are well built and will last for decades. I enjoy relaxing outside on the deck in the summer and the pergola is a great space for outdoor entertaining with plenty of room for furniture and a grill. I am very happy with the end result of my outdoor construction projects and would recommend RDK to anyone looking for quality construction.
I would highly recommend RDK to anyone looking for outstanding quality workmanship at a fair price. Ray was hired to do some major remodeling of an existing home for us, along with a small addition, and we cannot say enough positive things about the work he did or the experience we had working with him and his team! Not only are they very easy to work with and extremely trustworthy, but they are also exceptional craftsman who truly take pride in their work. They treated our project like it was their own and made great suggestions to help us achieve an end result that was beyond our expectations while staying on budget. Ray was even able to complete the entire project on time, even though we were on an extremely tight timeline and added some things we hadn’t originally planned.
It is my privilege the recommend RDK for anyone seeking contracting services. Ray Knepp and his team were professionals from beginning to end on our project. From the initial estimate to the finishing touches, we were so impressed and pleased with the work, that I wouldn’t hesitate to give his number to my friends and family
I originally chose RDK Contracting for our large home remodeling project due to their reputation as Finer Wood Craftsman. Over the years we keep going back to them for various projects both indoors and out. They truly are custom craftsman!
We are so happy that Ray and his team at RDK did the work for us.
We interviewed several builders and went with RDK Contracting. Our project entailed doubling the size of our ranch walkout. Ray Knepp is easy to work with and responsive. His workmanship is of the highest quality. We were more than satisfied with the addition to our home. I highly recommend RDK Contracting.
We recently hired RDK to do a very extensive renovation on a rental duplex in East Lansing. We do not live in the area so we were very concerned about trusting a contractor to do the work since we couldn’t be there every day. We hired RDK because they were highly recommended by other tradespeople and we couldn’t have been happier. Ray and his crew did an exceptional job. They always showed up as promised, the price was very fair, the job site was left clean, they always answered questions and returned phone calls, they were very pleasant to work with, and the quality of the work was exceptional. Ray’s son, Raymond, did much of the work himself. He is extremely talented and his attention to detail was impressive. Even though we weren’t able to be at the job site every day, they never cut any corners and went above and beyond our expectations. We could not have completed this project on time without RDK and we would highly recommend. We have more projects planned for next year and won’t consider hiring anyone else.
