“Richie is one of the most honest, capable, talented, knowledgeable, detail-oriented and pleasant contractors we have ever worked with. We have done renovations to several different properties in the past 23 years but have never had the pleasure to work with someone as capable as Richie and his crews. After preparing our lot for new construction he built our dream-house..... it is built with attention to detail, high quality and the best of all materials! The timeline was tight but Richie did it and UNDER budget, now that was an amazing feat considering how extensive this project was. We can't recommend him enough and if anyone is considering hiring Richie you will be very happy with EVERYTHING! Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to see his "master piece" :)”

“We are fortunate to have selected RJC as the builder for our "Kitchen House with Master Bedroom" project just completed. Putting an addition onto an 1827 Charleston Single, in downtown, historic Charleston is not an easy feat for starters. But our living 642 miles away in Pennsylvania made it even more of a challenge. Richie you made it happen for us. Your qualities are uniquely suited for this business: good communication skills; attention to detail; technical capabilities; and the integrity with which you are regarded by local subcontractors, architects, inspectors and others. We selected you in part because of the strong recommendation from our neighbors and friends, the Othersens, for whom you built a house. We would be honored to repeat the favor to anyone seeking to do a building project of high quality, at a reasonable cost"

"I want to thank you for the outstanding work you did on our Sullivans Island house. To deliver to our very exacting requirements and expectations on time and within budget was an awesome performance, and one that has surpassed all of our previous experience with other contractors. I know that this was down to your intimate personal involvement in all the work -you were not just a manager, but a worker! We really do appreciate what you and your team has done for us."

 "When Pattison's Academy needed assistance with building and installing cabinets and sinks in our classrooms, we called Richie and within a couple of days of our meeting he provided a quote and supply list for me to review. He did a fantastic job, very professional and kind. We then needed some other construction jobs completed at the school and he was the first and only person we called. Once again, he did a wonderful job. I would not use anyone else.  He went above and beyond and always made sure we were satisfied with the job.  In this day and time I was skeptical that there was a contractor out there that still believes in hard work, quality and dedication to the client. We found all of those things in Richie Johnson". 

-Sloan Cooper, Executive Director of Pattison’s Academy, Charleston SC


 "We had heard horror stories about contractors going way over scope and budget and delivering sub-par results. It was the opposite with Richie. The project benefited greatly from his attention to detail, both on the work being done by his crew and on his own bookkeeping and resource management.  He communicated with us every step of the way, both with good news and bad news (there always is some), so that we always knew where we stood and what was next. The next time we have a renovation or construction project, our first phone call will be to Richie".

"Richard Johnson Contracting remodeled our Kitchen and Richie also managed the replacement of our roof. He is excellent on attention to detail; our kitchen project was finished in about four weeks.  This was a complete tear out and replacement with custom built cabinets.  He managed the subcontractors with expert efficiency; the subs were particular about their work and cleaned up after themselves each evening.  Richie has a great group of people working with him.  Our kitchen is open for inspection to anyone interested in his services".  


-Sharryn Clark, Mt Pleasant


"We used Richard Johnson Contracting to replace the decking on our island home and were very pleased with the finished product.  The work was completed on time, on budget and the workers were very professional and the workmanship  was outstanding.  When we have additional work to be done we would definitely use Richard Johnson Contracting".

-Mike and Linda P, Sullivan's Island


"Richie was a tremendous asset when we decided to renovate our kitchen.  Not only did he do a great job overseeing the construction process, but Richie offered sound guidance during the design process as well.  Richie made sure we always had the best products available, while still staying within our budget.   We love our new kitchen and would recommend Richard Johnson Contracting to anyone looking for a quality minded, trustworthy contractor". 

-Stuart Saunders, Mt. Pleasant


"My husband and I had never done a remodel and badly needed a kitchen redo.  Richie was recommended to us and I would never look anywhere else.  He came and looked at the job and gave us many suggestions.  This was followed up with an estimate of the cost and the length of time it would take. Last summer the kitchen was completely gutted and remodeled in about 8 weeks.  The people that Richie brought in to do the various jobs were exceptionally nice and professional.  They cleaned up every day and showed up to work on schedule.  We are hoping to remodel the master bedroom and bath soon and Richie was the only person I contacted!  He is thoroughly professional and very kind.  I would recommend Richard Johnson Contracting to anybody interested in a remodel or construction job who is looking for an honest, exceptional contractor".

-Colleen Barth, West Ashley


"Richie Johnson is everything you want in a contractor : knowledgeable, detailed, honest and an excellent communicator. He kept us up to date on the progress of our project and the work was completed within budget and to our total satisfaction. We are happy to be a reference for him”.
