Why You Should Hire R.J. Aley to Build Your Next Project?

In business since 1996, we have worked on and remodeled dozens of homes, bathrooms and kitchens. We’ve built many additions and done plenty of whole house remodels that when completed were practically new homes. While all of this work has added to our experience and knowledge base and helped us improve our service to you, nothing has had a bigger impact on how we build than the dozens of small repair projects we perform each year.

A strong foundation in repairs and other small projects is a valuable skill that not many contractors have, particularly contractors who only build new homes or do large additions and remodels. It’s more difficult to find skilled and willing repair contractors than mega builders eager for that half million-dollar kitchen addition. Maintenance and repair is where a lot of theory gets tested—what works and holds up over the course of 5, 10, 25 years or longer—and what doesn’t.

The proper way to fix problems is not always obvious. An experienced repair contractor like R. J. Aley draws on a wealth of knowledge gleaned from years of repairing rotted exterior trim, solving wet basements and defrosting frozen pipes. We have eliminated ice dams without resorting to costly electric heating coils that will drive up your electric bill. We have solved chronic heating and cooling problems, rooms that are freezing in winter and boiling in summer. We have solved roof leaks that no one else was able to fix.

 Often we find and fix these problems on homes that are only 10 to 20 years old.

R.J. Aley believes that the exceedingly valuable insight that comes from doing repair work—a firsthand view of what goes wrong when things are not built correctly—is extremely valuable knowledge to have when building new homes, large additions or remodels.

When the knowledge and wisdom gathered from years of small repair jobs is not available to the homeowner, architect, or mega builder planning a new home or big remodel it can result in very expensive repairs much sooner than you think.

R.J. Aley remains quite happy to do ordinary repair work for homeowners who require it. We will never turn down modest repair jobs that are essential to the maintenance and upkeep of our client’s home since every job adds to our knowledge base. But we won't turn down bigger projects either, and when we build them, we know what will work in the long run and last for the next 100 years.
