I hired Ducote Construction Company to repair two cracks in my concrete driveway and in various places around the outside perimeter of my house. Ronnie Ducote was willing to change the appointment time in order to work around other projects being done the day of his appointment. He and his helper arrived a few minutes early, did the work well, and kept me informed about the work that was being done. A week after the work was finished, Ronnie Ducote called me to ask if everything was still okay. I will hire them again and recommend them to others.

Ronnie responded quickly to my request for an estimate, began and finished the work in a timely manner, and his workmanship is of a very high quality.

It went very well. Ron and his team of three arrived at 7am each day and performed the work clean and efficiently. They covered everything in our children's room so as to not make them dirty with dust. They also put everything back at the end of each day for the boys to sleep in their beds and put all of their tools in the bathroom. They finished patching up the ceiling in the floor below where the leak was. They did all cutting and sawing out in the back even though it was pretty cold on some of the days.

I have used Ron Ducote in the past and based on his excellent work he was the obvious choice to remodel the bathrooms. There is very little in the construction world that Ron cannot do and what he does is he does it to perfection He installed a large shower, removed a non-load bearing wall (really opening up the bathroom), put in a free standing soaker tub, double vanity with two mirrors, and to handle the storage issue built an amazing closet. His tile work is spectacular and makes the shower a real focal point in the midst of an incredible master bathroom. As for the second bathroom , he also completely demo'd the room and installed a tub/shower combination and a double vanity. Throughout the process Ron was assisted by David Parsons and Jason of Patriot Backflow and Gas Inc. to handle all of the plumbing. My only regret is that I didn't know about them sooner, I would have used them for all my plumbing issues. They do quality work at a very reasonable price. An overall great experience to what could have been an otherwise stressful situation. Will definitely use again.

They were on time and worked around our schedule of availability. The tile floor was replaced. He noticed a problem with the marble sill I had purchased and instead of installing something faulty, alerted us to it and had us get a replacement. The walls and trim were painted. A new vanity was installed. When Ronnie realized the door was scraping the new floor vent cover, he took off the door and planed it down. That is just one example of his attention to detail. Plus he fixed a problem with our front door without us asking or him ever mentioning it. A sub-contractor installed the new sink, toilet, light and outlets. Ronnie was recommended to us by a friend. He has done work for other friends. We will continue to use him and recommend him.

Everything was great. Ronnie actually shows up every day and does the work himself (with a single helper in my case). In most other cases I've seen (including the other bids I got for this project), the owner comes out to give the estimate, then you never see him again. Not so with Ronnie, who was here every day to work. He had a very high level of professionalism, and I could tell that he was very concerned with doing things right and making sure I was happy with the result. They took very good care of my house, and cleaned everything up very well when they were finished. I was out of town for a week during the work, and I just gave him a key to the house; I had complete trust in him. After I buy a new house, I know that I will be calling Ronnie to do any work/remodeling that needs to be done!

Gutted entire kitchen (except floor), arranged for electrical and plumbing needs. replaced windows and siding. Installed new cabinets, put up new drywall for kitchen window Was recommended by a neighbor and we were not disappointed. Always on time, cleaned up each day before leaving. Everyone he brought into our home to work was respectful. Work was done on time and he always followed up even after his part was done to make sure we were happy with everything. We plan on using them again for at least four other projects. Ronnie is the best. My wife said he's part of the family now.

We needed our X-ray machines replaced in our office and before they could be replaced the area had to be prepared and shored up so that the walls could hold the weight. We also needed so cosmetic touch ups in places where there was equipment and now we had no longer had anything in its place. Ron and his team kept in touch with us and kept us abreast of how the project was going. The work was professionally finished and we never had to shut down our business. It was all done in the time frame that was quoted and the work sites were clean when they left. I would recommend Ron Ducote Construction to my family and to anyone.

DUCOTE CONSTRUCTION remodeled unfinished basement to include framing, drywall, duct work, concrete floor leveling, floor installation and painting. Ronnie and his crew did an excellent job. They arrived promptly every morning and left the work site impeccably clean upon departure. The work was high quality and exceeded my expectations. The basement looks great!

Painted the majority of the home. As well as corrected the stress fractures in the bedroom ceilings and the nail pops throughout the remainder of the ceilings. We have used Ron Ducote Construction in the past for concrete and carpentry work, (deck and banister), we have always been very happy with all of their work and always look forward to having them back. Very professional. Left area clean and all furniture was placed back where it belonged.

Our small and only bathroom needed to be remodeled to accommodate our elderly family members. The entire bathroom had to be torn out to allow a roll-in shower to be installed. Ducote Construction removed all fixtures, the tub, the floor, and part of the sub-floor. They also widened a closet door and removed wallpaper from the walls. The work involved adding some plumbing and some electrical outlets and fixtures. Once the demolition was done, the team replaced the sub-floor and installed a new tile floor, installed the roll-in shower, tiled the shower, patched and painted the walls, installed a bi-fold door on the closet, and installed the new vanity, grab bars, towel racks, and toilet. The crew arrived on time every day for this 9-day job, were considerate of our home, yard, and pets. The final cost matched their estimate and I would use them again.

Great. They were on time everyday. Very friendly and professional work atmosphere. They also left a spotless work area when they finished working everyday. We are now enjoying our new bathroom everyday. I would highly recommend them.

It went very well. Ron, Lenny and Kern showed up on time every day and left the work area clean and orderly when they left. The room & closet look great. I'm very happy with the finished product. Ron even helped me get carpet samples and take measurements for the carpet when I wasn't home. It was a positive experience all around, I have no complaints and would definitely use Ducote Construction again!

Ron Ducote gave me an estimate during his first inspection on October 3. He worked with me to schedule the appointment, and then about a week later, when I asked if the work could begin earlier on our scheduled appointment for October 12, he was willing to do that. I had electrical work scheduled to begin at 9, but also have a very sick neighbor who said it was okay for the Ducote Company to begin noisy outside work at 8 AM. Mr. Ducote changed his start time to 7 AM and said he would do the quiet work from 7-8 and then begin the noisy work at 8. He and one other worker kept to that schedule almost down to the minute. His work was done well. During the repairs, he and his helper kept me informed about what they were doing and why. He called a week later just to check up on his work. I recommend him and will use him again for other projects as they come up.

Ronnie and his crew built our daughter a beautiful new basement bedroom and also replaced two windows. Work was completed start to finish in just under two weeks. Ronnie gave us ideas and options we would not have come up with on our own. I only wish we had called them sooner. Will definitely use again and would recommend them to family and friends. What a great company to work with!

He took out several slabs of concrete and repoured the concrete. He and his workmen also skim coated my chipped concrete landing. The end cost was the same as they estimated. They were courteous, positive, and detail oriented. It didn't take long, and we could use our walkway within 48 hours. It now looks fantastic. Now, we no longer have wet feet, due to the sunken slabs that let water pool right at the base of our stair landing. My front yard has much better curb appeal, too.

Job was completed to our satisfaction. Workers were polite, clean, and respectful of us and our property (including our wood floors). They even vacuumed the areas where they were working every night before leaving.We chose to have Ducote perform the work because he did not pressure us to purchase more expensive upgrades that we did not need but did assist in finding matching products we liked. Unlike other contractors he raised our existing vanity instead of requiring us to purchase a new vanity and allowed us to choose products/brands that we wanted.

I dealt with Ron of RON DUCOTE CONSTRUCTION, he was recommended by a neighbor and I will be recommending to other neighbors. Ronnie was excellent at keeping me informed of the throughout the entire process. He started out by going over each section of the house that needed repair and discussing the options and what if would do for me. That is why we ended up with a mix of urethane millwork and wood. After going over the job he was able to provide a rough estimate of time and labor costs that was in the ball park and then quickly followed up with a total cost of the project. The repairs are seamless, you would have to know where to look to find the joints and repairs. The work was completed on time, on budget and exceeded expectations, definition of a great project. Everything looks great. He provided several calls during the job to check in with the progress and to see if it what was done at that point was looking good and what I had expected. During the work, the place was cleaned every night. We plan to have some inside work performed during the winter and will definitely be calling Ronnie.

Full kitchen renovation and buildout of 17x17 addition. Ron was a professional and trusted craftsman throughout the process. He was reliable and dedicated the time to ensure this large project was finished in good time.

Beautiful job! The windows look great, nice and neat and professional. In the past, I have found that caulking can be very messy and sloppy looking if not done correctly. I am very pleased with the results! The porch looks so much better than what it did before!! I don't have the patience to operate the power washer and very much appreciated the cleaner look that resulted from the cleaning, it was in very bad shape.
