I would never hire or recommend Richard for anything other than building a deck. We had hired him on three separate occasions and we had leaks or other problems with every job he did. The addition we hired him to build was cheaply done and he did the roofing completely wrong, which caused severe leaking (and flooding) on our main floor. He does all the work himself, rather than hiring professional tradesmen. Lesson learned: Never go cheap on a reno.
