If you are looking for a contractor, this is the guy you want. Joe gets the job done, on time, on budget and does not take short cuts. He knows what he is doing and you will get the same impression no matter how small or big the job. When I dreamed up my addition I knew only a contractor that knew what he was doing could pull it off. Joe knocked it out no problem. I could not be more pleased with the outcome. When you work with Joe you not only get someone with the proper experience, you get his crew who he has hand-picked and they are awesome! Next time I need any work on my house only JP Custom Carpentry will do. Thanks again Joe.
Working with Raleigh Contracting & Investment Group, Inc. was an excellent experience. Work was done on-time, as agreed, with very little wasted materials. The project involved elements of fencing, fine-carpentry, and attention to detail which was outstanding! JP transformed a space for our use.
Over the past year, we have used Raleigh Contracting & Investment Group, Inc. to replace and update roof (adding a roof vent as recommended by Mr. Parulski); replacing/repairing and then painting and causing our exterior woodwork; pressure washing vinyl and brickwork; pressure washing, repairing and staining our deck; replacing insulation and vapor barriers in our crawl spaces; and replacing (upgrading) front and back storm doors. We are very satisfied with to quality and value of each project, exceeding our expectations.
Joe Parulski went above and beyond what we expected. He was extremely up-front about everything he said to us, and never misled us.
Joe has done several jobs for me. The last one he did was a very large project downtown that consisted of renovating a current home and adding on an addition to it. The scope of work was very large and nothing was missed! The budget came in on target and so did the timeline. Joe was very good with communicating with me throughout the project. I will certainly use him again.
We had a number of home improvement projects we wanted to complete. We wanted a reliable Licensed General Contractor to work with us that we could trust. After a 2 year search we found Raleigh Contracting & Investment Group Inc. The owner Joe Parulski and his team of talented workers created a beautiful custom outdoor kitchen with stone work all around, gas and charcoal grills, outdoor faucet, custom cabinets, extended our deck with a herringbone design pattern, installed special outdoor lighting and lighted balusters, built two beautiful custom pergolas, designed and built a custom fence.
Raleigh Contacting & Investment Group just recently finished a complete renovation on our recently purchased home in North Hills (Raleigh), NC. We brought in four different contractors to come forward with ideas and price quotes - and after finalizing plans and pricing Joe came in at the best overall value for concept and money. At over 3,300 sq. feet - the complete renovation was a significant undertaking I'm very picky on details and Joe hit the look perfectly. We also had a custom floor done in the foyer and kitchen from a concept we found on the Internet - and Joe was also 100% on this piece as well. It actually turned out better than we'd hoped and was better than the original concept. No doubt that Joe is an expert. Considering the entire price tag was just over 100k, the total overruns on items not changed by us were less than $5k - so he was pretty much right on with his initial estimate. Basically - no hidden costs that many contractors try to stick you with after the build starts. One of the most impressive pieces was that I was overseas during the entire process - so Joe was on the honor system for most of the process. He delivered exactly what he said he would do. I had to leave back overseas before the final punch list was complete - but at this point about 99% is complete with a few small items remaining. I already paid all the money due and have no hold back and I'm not evenly slightly concerned that Joe won't come back and finish the small outstanding items remaining. He's willing to be flexible to ensure a happy client. I would recommend Joe to anyone in Raleigh looking for a solid trustworthy General Contractor that does what he's says he's going to do and finish the job in a complete and timely manner. I would definitely use Joe again if I had additional work - and would be happy to serve as a reference to Joe for any people interested in his services. Thank you Raleigh Contracting & Investment Group!
We have worked with a lot of great people in the past that have done nice work but Joe's business ethics, efforts, product quality and overall results exceeded our expectations. As an example, before we could create our punch list at the completion of the project, Joe had already created his own that had addressed the majority of the items we would have put on our list. We never had to wonder what the status of the project was since Joe would always be responsive and communicate effectively. When we have questions or are interested in discussing a project idea in more detail, he would always make himself available and offer additional suggestions to make the overall project successful and keep us as homeowners happy. Even when challenges come up that are to be expected with large custom projects, he approaches them as an opportunity to make the project even better and again Joe focuses on making sure that we are satisfied with the overall project results. Joe's pricing is very competitive and very transparent. He spends time to understand the homeowners and their expectations, and he was very happy to help us break a large project into smaller chunks so that we can get the results we were expecting. Not only do we highly recommend Joe and his team to all our friends as a talented General Contractor but we are also so pleased with the team's ability to do a great job on small and large home improvement projects!
Raleigh Contracting & Investment Group Inc. replaced all of our 20 year old single pane wooden windows with new vinyl double pane, double hung windows. They also replaced all our existing Masonite siding with new vinyl siding, gutters and trim. The house looks amazing and we couldn't be happier with the work they did. Joes crews showed up on time each day they were scheduled and did a great job cleaning up when the job was done. I would recommend Raleigh Contracting & Investment Group to anyone with any type of home improvements.
After contacting six contractors and getting a range of responses - from no response to unbelievably low quotes to unbelievably high quotes, I decided to make one more attempt at finding a professional to take on the project of building a screened porch at a reasonable cost. I found Joe Parulski on Angie's List and contacted him through his website. The next morning he called and we set up a time to discuss the project and get an estimate. Joe arrived promptly and discussed the project with us listening to what we wanted and offering options that he thought we might consider. After getting his estimate which was upper middle of the range of quotes, we decided to go with him because of his professionalism and the confidence we felt in the work he would do. As the project got under way there were multiple crews involved (carpentry, electrical, gas, painting, roofing, screening, inspectors) and all were very cordial. Joe communicated throughout the project through regular visits and was quick to answer phone calls. Rain and holidays forced the project to take longer than anticipated but this was unavoidable. It was a muti-faceted project that required the coordination of many people and Joe managed all of them efficiently, checking to ensure that what was planned had been done. If something was not done, there were occasions when Joe came and took care of it himself. The end result is a beautiful screened porch, an adjoining deck with our natural gas grill, and a fireplace in our den. We appreciate Joe's attention to detail and his responsiveness. We would call him again!
Our windows were in terrible shape! We had views of the outside and drafts coming through. The biggest part was that all of our windows were custom sized. Joe was the best coach in deciding how to tackle our window replacement project. He was great at educating us on the different methods of replacement and the different types of windows that we could use. His team came out to measure on multiple occasions during the process so that the windows were correct the first time and no mistakes were made. Now that they are installed they look beautiful and, most importantly, we see a dramatic decrease in our energy bills. Joe's team was outstanding. From the outset Joe was personally involved with us, the manufacturers, and the installers. The project took 3 days and went very smoothly. The installers were incredibly professional. They left the house cleaner than it started. The workmanship is beautiful. Joe came through each day to make sure that the work was being done up to his perfectionist standards and helped correct any small issues that arose. His final walk through was done personally. We will certainly use him again.
