Ray Romano Rocks. Listen to this: He did a complete GUT on an eight room wreck in less than 8 weeks. I do not recommend it for anyone. It is CRAZY. But we have little kids and we had no choice. and Ray Romano and his team got it done! The place is beautiful!
Ray rescued us from a contractor job gone bad! He and his crew are great, neat and real artisans.We recommend him very highly and I bet before we know it there will be another "Everybody loves Raymond" but on HGTV or TLC!
Ray added value in ways that other GCs can not. Working with him is a pleasure. He more than doubled the value of my apartment through his gut renovations. I would recommend him to any person looking to make home improvements.
