Review by in North Scituate, RI
Owner Ray Limoges provided assistance from the beginning with what was entailed in a master bathroom complete renovation. He was available throughout the project for any concerns. Foreman Mike Marciano was on the job everyday and kept me informed to status of project milestones. In addition to his professional craftsman work, Mike excels in customer service. The entire team made a stressful time enjoyable!

Review by in North Kingstown, RI
So happy we refaced rather than replaced our cabinets. 4 days from start to finish. Team on time every day, worked efficiently and excellent clean up at end of project. Ray is a pleasure to work with and very responsive throughout the project to questions and requests. Would happily recommend.
Response by Ray's Carpentry & Home Improvement: Thank you, Sheryl. We appreciate your review. Hope to work together again.

Although all of the issues with the quality of workmanship of our new deck were addressed and resolved, it took several times for them to return and finally repair it correctly.
Response by Ray's Carpentry & Home Improvement: WEATHER,WEATHER, WEATHER...it affects scheduling and affected this project! The Rhode Island area received unprecedented rain during Spring 2017 which caused many of our projects to be pushed back.It was routinely commented on by our local meteorologists that rain such as the amount we had had not been recorded in 150 years of record keeping. The nature of our business is outdoor work and in the rainy conditions it is not possible to do any work. The building inspector was also delayed due to the inclement weather. Problems arose when the railings that he purchased had microscopic scratches on them and he was displeased with their condition. He returned the railings and then it took the lumberyard two and a half months for replacements to come in. We did nothing wrong on this project, the quality is excellent. Mr. DeCurtis wrote this review based on emotions, due to the fact that the project was not done before a party he had scheduled. We had to work around the issues that we were presented with and always tried our best. As stated in his review -The issues were resolved- Ray?s Carpentry made good on everything, but unfortunately we cannot control the weather. We feel that the review that was left is incomplete and not fair based on the circumstances.

Review by in Jamestown, RI
Please don't not use Ray's home improvement or stone work. I spent close to 70K on a basement, fireplace and chimney. His work is guaranteed - so he said. I had a leak from his work and he said - no problem he would fix it but he says one thing and does another- time and time again. PLEASE DON"T USE HIM- you will be sorry as w have been. PLUS I SEE HE USED ME TO GIVE HIMSELF A 5.0-- the guy can't be trusted. Call me anytime at 617 510 9370 if you need more.
Response by Ray's Carpentry & Home Improvement: WE DO NOT GUARANTEE WORK WE DID NOT DO! (consumer name withheld per their request) statements are false and without merit. In 2015 (consumer name withheld per their request) hired Set in Stone to install a brand-new chimney. (consumer name withheld per their request) asked for an estimate to refurbish his current chimney to match the one we were hired to build for him. After inspecting it, I found that the flashing on the existing chimney was 50 + years old and was in failure mode, which could eventually cause leakage. I strongly recommended to (consumer name withheld per their request) that he have Set in Stone replace the flashing to the existing chimney, but he informed me that he did not want to pay the full cost of that repair. To save himself money, he asked that Set in Stone install a stone veneer over the existing chimney to match the new chimney that Set in Stone built. At (consumer name withheld per their request) s request and against my recommendation, Set in Stone only installed the veneer on ?the existing chimney?. The brand-new chimney Set in Stone built was A+ quality. Following the installation of (consumer name withheld per their request) new chimney, he wrote a 5-star review on ?Home Advisor? for the entire job, which was over $70,000, claiming an outstanding job was done by Set in Stone/Ray?s Carpentry. Now that the 50 + year old flashing is leaking on (consumer name withheld per their request) existing chimney (as I told him would happen), and he failed to heed my strong recommendation of replacing the 50 + year old flashing, (consumer name withheld per their request) is now is trying to extort me into repairing the flashing for free and damage the A+ reputation of Set in Stone/Ray?s Carpentry by leaving bad reviews. I take pride in perfection as do my tradesmen. Please review my outstanding ratings on Home Advisor from numerous satisfied customers and feel free to call me if you have any questions about (consumer name withheld per their request) fabrication.

Review by in East Greenwich, RI
I am a very particular person when it comes to craftsmanship and customer service, and was really impressed with the bathroom renovation that Ray and his team did. They showed up every day on time and ready to work. The foreman was a master at adapting new materials into an older house. Any request or change I had throughout the project was done with a smile:) I interviewed several companies before selecting Ray, and couldn't be happier with the end result. The very reasonable price that was quoted at the beginning of the project, did not change. I would highly recommend them, and would definitely use them again.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
