    When we had moved into our house we had unfortunately inherited a poorly built sunroom. It was originally a deck and someone had built a sunroom on top of it. We knew we needed to replace it pretty early on but it was challenging to find someone with the chops to do the work effectively. It seemed like we needed too many skills in a single person and there were a lot of contractors that seemed like they thought it was too big of a project for us to afford and just quit talking to us! Rick & Sue came along and were exactly who we needed. They had a rich history in construction and offered a comfortable experience for an affordable price. They worked with us on designing the deck and gave us options to feature each idea that we had. We're generally reluctant to share budgets early on but we decided to put our trust in Rick & Sue and they respected that by delivering a suite of designs that went right up to the budget. We even could pick and choose our favorite parts among them! We now have a beautiful deck that our neighbors love to visit. In fact, we can hardly bring ourselves to go back inside! They built for us a deck system that included a two level deck and a massive roofed section that's perfect for sitting and reading in the rain and the cedar beams are beautiful and allowed for easy set up of a projector screen that let us have an immersive outdoor movie theater during the evening and discretely pack it up into the beam during the day. Rick & Sue are my favorite contractors that I've worked with so far and I look forward to having them work on our house again!

    Rick and Sue have done multiple projects on our home. We have been so impressed by their professionalism and knowledge. They provide top notch work at a fair price with quality materials. We will continue to use their services in the future for any home projects that arise. Other home improvement companies that we have hired do not even compare to the service and commitment we have received from them! We are so thankful that we found RA Building and Design!

    5.0 Brad L. La Grange, KY

    What a terrific project!! Impeccable craftsmanship. Excellent communication. Used only quality materials. Great value. Fantastic team of workers. Awesome design.

    5.0 Gerald S. Shelbyville, KY

    We had a very unique project involving a large deck and an enclosed pavilion. We also chose to start our project square in the middle of a Covid pandemic! Despite the unexpected obstacles that could not have been predicted we felt that RA Building and Design did an excellent job. We knew from the beginning that the level of communication would be the key to our success and without hesitation they did a tremendous job.

    Rick and Sue Anderson are amazing. We got a great new back porch and a great new back door for a fair price. The workmanship is great.

    5.0 Tina C. La Grange, KY

    When we first met with this company to get a quote for having a deck built on the back of our house, we looked at their portfolio and said to ourselves, there was no way we were going to be able to afford a deck based on the beautiful pictures of their previous work. When we received their proposal and design we were more than thrilled. The design was beautiful and their quote was less than other companies. The Andersons were also using far better materials and had a better design. We had to wait a while for them to start but at risk of sounding cliche, "It was worth the wait!" Our deck and pergola are better than we could have even imagined! It is magnificent! The crew and company were very professional and easy to work with everyday. They kept us updated with any delays that happened i.e like bad weather when they could not work, whether or not they would be starting late that day or if something needed to be changed because our house was not cooperating with their plan (we had rotten wood that could not be seen until after siding was removed from the house). We love our deck and could not be happier with our choice to use RA Building & Design. We can't say enough good praises about their professionalism, design and product quality. They are very easy to work with and the results are beyond compare to other companies!

    We had the best experience. Very professional, they made sure our floors and carpet were very well protected. We can t wait to work with them on our future projects we have

    5.0 Cheryl B. Shelbyville, KY

    The experience from start to finish was excellent. I can't say enough wonderful things about them. The only complaint would be the weather!, which no one can control. Rick is very knowledgeable, does quality work and uses quality materials. Sue is organized and a friendly, good communicator. She keeps you updated on where they're at in the project, what you owe, changes addressed immediately and all questions answered...even if you ask the same question more than once. Their crew are talented and hard-working...no small talk. From day 1 you could tell they knew what they were doing. I highly recommend this company and will use them again!! Thank you Rick, Sue and crew!

    5.0 Laszlo S. Crestwood, KY

    Sue and Rick listened to our ideas and implemented a design to fit. From the very first meeting, we felt we found the right match for the job and they certainly did not disappoint. Professional, dedicated, hard working, focused, engaged are some of the character traits that come to mind that best describes their work and effort. The build *team* was prompt, professional, courteous and hard-working. They stayed focused on task and cleaned up each day. They put in an honest days work each day and knew the work. The end product was certainly worth the added wait and delays due to rainy days and weeks. The proof is in the details and we look forward to using RA Building and Design in the future. Everyone is amazed at the finished work product and we love our new rebuilt and designed deck.

    4.5 Dale T. Fisherville, KY

    Rick and Sue were great to work with. They kept us informed to time tables and any issues. Their work crew was great. The craftsmanship is excellent. The builders were friendly and very respectful and polite. They kept the yard clean and made sure the gates were closed so I didn't have to worry about my dogs after they left for the day. I will definitely be calling them for my neck project.
