We've used Ryan and Red Isle Construction previously for two complete bathroom renovations, so he was our obvious choice for our next renovation project.
This time it was a wide mix of things we wanted done. Upstairs we wanted to get new upgraded carpet throughout and also have warm and cold air central return ducts to both bedrooms installed where we had electric baseboard before. Also new carpet on the stairs.
All this as well has having one bedroom repainted was done exceptionally well. Since he already had the old carpet removed and was dealing with running the air ducts, he also added in cat 6 so we now have direct internet connections in each room.
Downstairs, we had our kitchen floor completely redone, removing our ancient ceramic tile and replacing it with new ceramic tile, removing old wall coverings and repainting the entire kitchen, removing a cast iron stove and replacing old back door with new. Also other nice things we hadn't thought about were done at the same time: Our old dull kitchen lights were replaced with new energy efficient led fixtures, our very old furnace thermostat was replaced with something more modern, and lighting for the hallway was improved by adding second switch since the wall was already opened up for the heating duct work that was happening.
It's all the extras that really make me impressed with Ryan. I love how he thinks and I know he will do it right the first time.
Oh, and another thing that wasn't planned at the time but still happened was a new set of stairs off our deck because the old ones were falling apart!
We'll definitely have Red Isle Construction back for our next projects, and next year it will very likely be a complete new deck to replace the aging one we have now.
Thanks Ryan and team for an awesome job!
Short version: You WON'T be disappointed
When I joined this site almost a year ago I started to look for a contractor to develop my unfinished basement. I have always been someone who tries to do a little bit of research before committing to something. My basement was the first major project I have ever done so i would consider myself a novice when it comes to renovations.
I can say that using this website and moreso choosing a reputable contractor was the best decision I could have made. Ryan has set the bar high for me moving forward on craftsmanship, advice and integrity.
He worked from March 2017 and completing the final touches in June 2017. He took the vision we had for the basement and really ran with it without little to no oversight. The great thing about Ryan is he will be honest and speak his mind if there is a bad idea (and yes I had a few), and provide you with expert advice on how he would do it with a non-salesmen approach.
The scope consisted of a fully in wired speaker system, projector, 110" sceen, built in wall CUSTOM AV cabinet (sexy I may add), bathroom, wall niche, and luxury vinyl floor. There are too many things he did that I don't want to list but its the small details that add up that really make it the room feel top notch. Ryan also wired the theater area with cat 5 which made it the cats a$$ for hooking up keyboard / mouse / subwoofer.
If there was anything I would criticize is that Ryan's schedule was busy with jobs and wasn't able to work a full week all the time. However, I would add that his communication was top notch and provided us with notice on the progress and what the upcoming schedule looked like.
In terms of quality I didn't experience anything that i ended up saying "i dont like that". I believe the main reason is because he really drills down (no pun intended) on your vision to execute it perfectly.
I will be calling him again on my next project.
Red Isle Construction had done a large kitchen renovation for us last year and we really enjoyed working with Ryan. We wanted to update the look of the fireplace (blond oak) with granite. The result is a beautiful new look to the main living space that coordinates with our new kitchen. Definitely a wow factor when you enter the house! Ryan always has great ideas, is very easy to work with, and stays on budget. Would certainly work with him again.
We had a bathroom renovation project in our basement that involved moving a wall, all electrical, plumbing, custom vanity cabinet, tile, lighting, painting and finishing. Ryan was dependable and completed the work to a very high quality. It was easy to work with him. He left the project area clean and perfect. He had some good ideas. We selected an expensive vanity and he said he could build one for much less. It was perfect.
It was a pleasure to work with Ryan -- I would recommend his firm.
