We are highly skilled craftsmen who value quality and attention to detail as the foundational principles of our business. But, our true core is communication. It’s what defines us. Communication is the structure that provides strength to our relationships. Since we began in 1995, we’ve understood we are more than builders. We are partners with people who put a part of their future in our hands.
Project Review, to get your dream underway. We start with a personal visit to your home, followed by a thorough review and discussion. Next you can expect a presentation of options for your project, and a discussion of the range of costs
Design Services, we’ll help secure the detailed drawings necessary to provide accurate estimates and to obtain permits. Based on the requirements of your project, we may recommend a specific architect or our design services. We perform an onsite evaluation of the construction site and your home, an in-person review of the proposed project. Several 3D sketches are provided to help you visualize your new project, as well as a set of schematic drawings, and a written scope of work. We also include cost planning during the design phase
Pre-Construction Services is how we go from drawing to construction as efficiently as possible. Our estimator as well as tradesman visit to evaluate the current plans in light of the existing conditions. We begin Selection Planning for the specifics. Here we address everything the job will need. From plumbing fixtures, appliances, countertops, tile design, to doors and windows - and everything in between. We also select cabinetry features and hardware. This is where the true personality of your project takes shape. We want to be sure your vision is affordable within your budget. Early planning with cost in mind helps keep your project moving swiftly later. Here we create a Cost Analysis of what it takes to build your project. There will be savings we uncover by addressing other available construction options through value engineering. We create a detailed Scope of Work (The Contract).

“How many people can finish a total house Reno and wish they had a new project to start? That is how I feel. Rittenhouse Builders has been a pleasure to work with, every single one of their employees was professional and respectful of us and our home. There is nothing they cannot do, as a matter of fact, they welcome the challenge. They take pride in their work and accept nothing less than perfection from themselves. I highly recommend hiring Rittenhouse Builders for your next project, you will be happy you did.”
“I highly recommend Rittenhouse who took over our new home build mid-stream. Their team of professional staff assisted throughout our project. From assessing the project, to completing the finished work, their team worked seamlessly to ensure we were getting the higher end look we desired for our “forever” home. Whether is is a new home, a significant remodel/addition, or restoration, I am convinced Rittenhouse can do it all and do it well.”
“Working with Rittenhouse Builders has been a tremendous pleasure because George and his team are highly capable professionals, supportive, communicative, and fair. If an error is made, they address it. If there is a misunderstanding, they work to resolve it, and most importantly, the quality of their work, professionalism and commitment to excellence.”
