Recognized Excellence - Derek is great to work with. Very personable and knowledgeable.
We had Rolf Schroeder General Contractors do a major remodeling job for us (gutted and rebuilt a master bathroom). They were excellent, from start to finish. Great ideas on the design, very helpful selecting materials, gave us clarity about what to expect, and then executed the job exactly as they said they would. They are not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for - and we were confident that they would deliver on what they promised and they did - that was well worth it. Highly recommend!
Clean - They were extremely respectful of our home and always left it clean. I was so thankful for the care they took to make sure things were left clean and neat.
Respectful - They showed great care to respect our home. We trusted them completely and they delivered.

Quality Of Workmanship - Excellent workmaship - flawless
Professional & Organized - Extremely professional - more than any other contractor I've ever dealt with.

Rolf Schroeder General Contractors exceeded our expectations for design, quality, workmanship, communication and project planning. Their business model is very well developed. If you are like us and have difficulty with decision-making, RSGC is the team for you. They walk you through the selection process, literally. Their design/build model is great because you do not have to commit to the project after the design phase. You keep the design if you plan to move on. Some of the materials they use are their 'tried-and-true', such as cabinet and faucet companies. They know the products are quality, whose companies stand behind their products. The face-to-face time and communication is exceptional. They have decades of experience in the trades and their team is top-notch. The project started on-time and proceeded like clock-work. It was smooth the entire way. We did a complete gut job and the team made sure the walls, insulation, plumbing and electrical were all done right and up to code. The resultant room was beautiful and we enjoy using every day. If you want to work with professionals, have a smooth experience, and receive a quality remodel, RSGC should be high on your list. We are very pleased with their work and look forward to working with them again. Thank you everyone!
Clean - They did a great job leaving the remodeled bathroom clean - it was ready to use!

Additional Comments - The team paid attention to detail so that everything looked amazing once it was done.
Without a doubt, I would recommend Rolf Schroeder General Contractors. We renovated our kitchen which involved taking down a wall over the course of 8 weeks. With 3 young children this project can be overwhelming for a parent (not having a kitchen), but Rolf and his team made this experience well worth it. The end result is a kitchen we look forward to raising our children in. The process of designing and renovating the kitchen proved to be, dare i say enjoyable. The professionalism of Rolf's team throughout the 8 weeks was second to none. We are extremely grateful for the end product, and also the process.
Clean - Everyday through Rolf's team left our house clean. This was an 8 week project and there was not one day that i felt the job site was not clean.
Respectful - Not only did Rolf respect my property and belongings they respected my family. This renovation took place during the summer so my three children were around, Jack, Doug and Derek essentially became "part of the family" during this process. We are very grateful for how they treated us.
Communication - The team "did their homework" before starting the renovation so their were not the "surprises" one might encounter during such a large renovation. The timeline they set in the beginning of the job was followed to the day.

Design - My wife and I had a vision for what we wanted, but Derek was able to put together a blueprint that exceeded our expectations. Their use of CAD helped with the planning.

Jack and Doug showed true professionalism each day on the job, not only with their quality of work but how they treated my family.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The design phase of the project was extremely impressive. Derek was able to translate our vision into a reality. His confidence in his work is well deserved.
Additional Comments - Having a kitchen being remodeled with three children can be an overwhelming process. The team at Rolf Schroeder exceeded my families expectations in all areas. It is difficult to say what impressed me the most, it could easily be the workmanship, or the design, but I think what separates' Rolf's team from the rest would be how they respected and treated my family through the 8 week renovation.
Wonderful experience! Considering the scale of our project, everything ran smoothly and on time. We will absolutely use them again!
Additional Comments - Absolutely wonderful, will use again!
I would highly recommend Rolf Schroeder General Contractors to a friend. Rolf, Derek, and their team were great to work with throughout our entire renovation process. They are professional, have a high attention to detail, and kept the project running on time.

We completed an extensive whole house renovation with them over a 6 month time period to update our 30 year old colonial style home. The results are fantastic!

If there were questions or issues that arose along the way, they would reach out immediately to address them. Also, they responded quickly to any questions that we had.
Quality Of Materials - Rolf and Derek utilize their experience to ensure high quality materials are used. They know and have working relationships with the manufacturers and suppliers who can provide good quality and service and utilize them.
Quality Of Workmanship - This is a true area of strength for Rolf Schroeder General Contractors. They demonstrated attention to detail throughout the renovation.

Another example of quality work is in the screened-in porch they built for us, which included custom made screens.
Expertise - Rolf and Derek are true experts in their field. They have extensive experience in home renovation and construction. In addition, their crew has been with them for many years.
Professional & Organized - This is a real area of strength for Rolf Schroeder General Contractors. Rolf and Derek are consummate professionals. This comes through in the way they interact with their crew, their vendors, and their customers. They had a high level of attention to detail throughout the entire project. It started with a detailed job plan before the project started. We reviewed, refined, and updated this as needed throughout the project.
Schedule - In an era of challenges with contractors, materials, and project timelines, we had no issues with scheduling throughout the entire 6 month extensive home renovation project. We knew exactly what to expect and when as the renovation proceeded. They even completed a few weeks ahead of schedule!

Thanks to Rolf Schroeder General Contractors, Inc. Our kitchen project finished 1 week earlier than promised. We are thrilled with our new space! Derek, Doug & Jack are the only crew we ever want to work in our home. Exceptional professionalism & personality! More laughter than tears during the 8 weeks without a kitchen. Thanks, Rolf, for another superb improvement to our home!
Clean - Rolf builds your calendar allowing time and resources to clean up at the end of every day. That time is with as much effort as the rest of their workday.
Safe - As stated above, the end of day clean up involves putting dangerous tools or sharp objects out of site and at a safe distance from your temporary living space. If a tool isn't being used, it's not out on display.
Respectful - This is our second project with RSGC and we would not have hired them back if respect was an issue. The crew answers your questions when asked and keeps you apprised of their progress.
Communication - Rolf starts with pre-work months before your project begins. The communication never waivers, whether it's a thought he has or an answer he needs, he is a text, call or visit away.
Quality Of Materials - Two projects in and we are thrilled with all of our choices.
Quality Of Workmanship - The workmanship draws you in to a more elaborate scope of the original agreed upon project. You start to see completion of work and as a homeowner, you want more of it!
Professional & Organized - A calendar of when utilities will be off is where it starts...organized in an understatement.
Sales Knowledge - Rolf and Derek are a tag team of knowledge. One of the reasons we have hired him twice is because of the hand holding offered through the selection process. It feels custom even though our project was not.
Design - Through all the initial conversations, Derek is able to put your ideas on paper and make each one of them work.
Recognized Excellence - This would be unfair! Each one of them, Rolf, Derek, Doug & Jack brings their expertise to the table. Rolf creates a team environment and none of them is in it for the glory. It is teamwork at it's finest.
Areas Of Satisfaction - Too many to list; beating their deadline by 1 week, adjusting schedule because of our work calls, adjusting schedule because of our dogs, including us in every scope of work...
Additional Comments - It is often said not to mix business with pleasure. Rolf and his crew have become friends through this second project, and we would not hesitate to hire them back them a third time.
Rolf and Derek were incredibly responsive. They proposed a redesign that worked well for our space. They helped us make very stylish and practical materials selections.
Their crew leader Jack was there every day and actively working on the project. The quality of the subs was top notch. We are very pleased with the workmanship, service and care we received.
Schedule - They were clear about timelines and actually were able to wrap up 1 week ahead of schedule because certain materials were shipped earlier than expected.
100%. If I do a significant project in the future, Rolf will be getting the call.
Clean - The guys were very clean. They basically mopped their way out the door each day.
Safe - I have little kids. Rolf’s guys put away all tools and hazardous items at the end of each work day. We have had contractors not do this so we certainly appreciated Rolfs crew.
Communication - Rolf and Dereck were always accessible. They always answer and kept us up to date on the project. This was huge for us as first time home renovators. We didn’t know what to expect but Rolf and his team communicated well during all steps of the project.
Quality Of Workmanship - Top notch. These guys are amazing. Every detail mattered to them
Schedule - The project stayed on track. The team showed up each day on time and communicated any schedule changes.
Work Done Right - The work is about as perfect as it can be. I can tell they take pride in what they do.
Recognized Excellence - Well everyone was great. Jack and Doug basically felt like a part of our family before it was over. I really appreciate being able to feel that my wife and kids were safe in the home with them while I was at work. That’s certainly not common in contracting world.
We cannot recommend Rolf and Derek enough. They were professional from start to finish, respecting our time, concerns and budget throughout the entirety of our kitchen remodel. Their attention to detail was noted in every aspect of the design and construction. We were kept abreast of any changes to the schedule, no matter how minor and they were respectful of our home at all times, maintaining a safe and clean environment. Issues/concerns were immediately addressed even a minor one that popped up weeks after the project's completion. The end result is an absolutely beautiful, functional kitchen with exceptional workmanship. We highly recommend Rolf and his team.
Clean - Our neighbors made a point to mention how impressed they were with how the respectful the crew were of our property and how clean they kept the area on a daily basis. Our home was always left as clean as you could hope during a revovation.
Communication - We were kept abreast of any changes to schedule no matter how minor.
Quality Of Materials - Did a great job with offering options to cut costs without sacrificing quality whenever possible
Quality Of Workmanship - Stunning workmanship with consistent attention to detail.
Problem Resolution - A minor electrical issue that was noted several weeks after the job was completed was taken care within a day or two of contacting Rolf. When the appliance store delivered our stove without the correct propane conversion and refused to correct the mistake, Rolf made the time-consuming conversion himself despite the inconvenience and impact on his busy schedule.
Schedule - complete kitchen renovation including extending flooring and trim work in the adjoining mudroom was done in 7 weeks. We were initially given an estimate of 6-8 weeks.
Design - Derek provided so many practical design insights that we never would have thought of.
Recognized Excellence - The whole team was great and professional at all times. Rolf made us feel like our job was his top priority and was invested in making it perfect for us. He kept us up to date on everything going on in the project including what other professionals would be in our home on any given day. We appreciate how direct Derek was in answering all our questions when finalizing a design and choosing all of the big and small items. We never felt like we were being led to spend unnecessary and he helped us feel confident in our choices. Not an easy task when spending so much money.
Areas For Improvement - Can't think of any
Areas Of Satisfaction - From start to finish, Rolf and the team exceeded our expectations in all facets of this project.
RSGC is an extremely professional team. They communicated with us throughout the design process and were very collaborative during every phase of the project. As an interior designer, we work with many trades people on our projects and we always enjoy working with RSGC. They are professional and bring extensive experience to every job. We look forward to working with them on future jobs.
Rolf, Derek, and his crew were fantastic to work with. During the whole process, we felt safe with the decisions and adjustments we had to make to keep our budget in check. Derek worked with us to make sure of this as a lot of the time we didn't have any idea of what materials were better to use to keep us happy as well as not blow up our fixed budget.
Recognized Excellence - Doug and Jack were great to communicate with. They always had time to answer any questions we had along the way, even while they were in the middle of something.
Areas Of Satisfaction - at the end of every day after they left, we would walk through the space to check on things. We hardly ever found anything that seems incorrect or different than what was had discussed.
Additional Comments - The guys were great and they'll be back for future projects in mind!
Rolf and his team are so in touch with my needs. It's like they are psychic.
From conception to completion, working with Rolf Schroeder and his team was a pleasure. Rolf and his team, including subcontractors, were professional, respectful, personable and knowledgeable. The quality of work and attention to the smallest detail was exceptional. Rolf maintained excellent communication throughout the project and addressed any issues that arose in a timely manner. He took a personal interest in making sure that we were satisfied with the final outcome.

Exceptional quality. Beautiful work. Thrilled with the results!
This is the second time (and there will be a third time) we hired Rolf Schroeder and his team to improve our home. This project entailed a FULL basement remodel. We couldn't be happier! Rolf and his team listened to our needs and they were more than sensitive to our budget. Did we run over budget? Yes, but it was NOT THEIR FAULT. We chose to add other items to the project than what we originally agreed to. Rolf and Derek were more than willing to work with us. What was the result? Our home looks way better that it did before. They will be welcomed back with open arms when it comes time to remodel our bathroom. We can't wait! Rolf, Derek, and their team (Doug and Jack) are part of our family. We trust them completely.
Recognized Excellence - Doug and Jack
Absolutely! I have actually recommended Rolf to several people since our job was completed.
Clean - Our house was left clean everyday, and they used a special vacuum/air cleaner so the house was not super dusty during the drywall phase.
Respectful - Rolf and his team were very respectful in all our interactions. They were also very kind to our young daughters.
Quality Of Materials - The quality of our cabinets and counter are fantastic. I feel like I am living in a magazine.

Schedule - We started a few days early to accommodate a scheduled vacation, this way we didn't have to live through demolition, and we ended ahead of schedule.
Design - The design exceeds my expectations, and I am so happy we had this renovation done when we did. I cannot imagine surviving under a 3 month stay at home order in our old layout!
Recognized Excellence - Everyone we worked with was so helpful! Rolf's team was wonderful and the vendors he used were experts in their field.
To say that I pay attention to details would be an understatement. I met my match with Rolf Schroeder General Contractors to discuss completely upgrading our kitchen in mid 2018. Our kitchen was approximately 15 years old, it was dark and becoming outdated. We wanted windows put in a side wall to allow for afternoon sunlight, white cabinets, a dramatic black with brown undertone rub through wooden range hood with a mantle to be the focus which would compliment a large custom entertainment center in the family room that is same color. We wanted the window over the sink expanded with a deep granite windowsill with custom trim work above so there is no need for curtains, etc.
Other definite additions were an alcove over the fridge with a dimmer to display favorite seasonal accessories. Over the years, I had torn out pages of ideas from magazines, so when the time came, we could share the vision we had in mind. Rolf Schroeder understood this vision and beyond. They were professional, knowledgeable, extremely organized with a high degree of quality. They kept us informed with a schedule from beginning to end and stuck to it. In the end, the kitchen won The NARI 2019 Contractor of the Year for Residential Kitchen for Bucks and Montgomery County. I would highly recommend speaking to them regarding any project before hiring anyone else.
Clean - Built a temporary wall between family room and kitchen to keep dust out of rest of house along with a dirt extractor going out the window, felt this was a healthy step and prevented breathing in the dirt.

Recognized Excellence - Very open and honest. Anticipating needs and keeping things moving. Quality of staff and work excellent

Communication - We were always kept abreast and consulted along every aspect of the project.
