I recommend Ralf without reservation. He works hard, takes pride in his work, and is a great communicator. His ideas and craftsmanship have transformed my gutted house from an ordinary reno project into a high quality finished product. Among his many talents, he was able to design the limited basement space into highly functional and livable rooms. The bathrooms were done using the Schluter method, the best there is for moisture proofing, and his tile work is gorgeous. He also was also effective at working with the other trades in a leadership role. His pricing was fair and he knows where to get a good price on materials. I appreciated being consulted on the cost of materials so I could stick to my budget as closely as possible. I believe I received full value for my money, and and am delighted with the quality and style of my new home.
