Initially he appears to be a hands-on experienced contractor. He even provides you a written estimate of what it would cost to finish the job. But after the work is underway, he tacks on what he calls "Add on" as he calls it. I ended up paying more than the initial estimate. In addition, there is a matter of the game called "Find Waldo" in that you can't find him; sometimes for a week. Mind you in the beginning the job was to take a week at the most. Using excuses like the "I am waiting for the material orders to arrive" and so forth. At some point I had to call ask for the status, and he hastily finishes the job and can't wait to get paid and jet. Quality is really job #2. He doesn't appear to care about his reputation or repeat customers. My sense is he has a poor business ethic and forgetful kinda fella too.

I can not recommend this company in any way.

I hired R.C Allen Construction to rebuild a garage and do some work around my house, i regret not firing them and i am hard pressed to give them any good recommendation.

One of the things the owner will point out is now long he has been in business ( Lic #438285) while this may be true, the owner does none of the work other then showing up once or twice a day to yell at his employees in front of you and your neighbors.

If you are looking for a "green" company these are not the people to hire, unless you like uninsulated buildings, poor work and construction debris buried in you yard. At one point the contractor tried to tell me that concrete debris was "Good for the soil", even after my 2 year old son broke into tears trying to walk across the yard.

At one point this rc allen constructionfailed to show up for over six weeks, every week telling me they will be here the following Monday. It took a threat of contractual breach to get his attention. In the end I had to hire other contractors to complete and repair his work.

The only good thing I can say is that a couple of his employees are hard workers and most of them try to do the best job they can given the circumstances.

If you are looking for a construction company I suggest you look elsewhere.
