Paul Vicari - "I highly recommend him"

A few months back, many of the workmoms sent me recommendations for a contractor with a good eye who could draw up plans and build our bathrooms.

I met with 5 contractors and got a great vibe from Paul Vicari, a Project Manager at RGH Development out of Maplewood. His pricing was the same as most of the others, his follow through was stellar, his references were all incredibly positive and he struck me as the kind of guy who would have a crew show up every day until the job was done.

My bathrooms are now almost completely done and I can't rave enough about Paul. He is very organized and concerned with every detail of the work. He doesn't take on more than he can handle. His crew was at my house every single day with no exceptions because they get paid by the job, not by the hour. They finished the bathrooms quickly and meticulously. When I called, he answered pronto....When there were surprises, he made sure I signed a change order first so that I didn't just get a charge after the fact. His vendors for tile, granite, plumbing were all great.....His crew was also VERY CLEAN. My house was broom swept every night and when they were done, they cleaned my whole garage.

While he did a small job for me, I spoke to people who had him do kitchens, full additions, etc...All the people had used him more than once....

I highly recommend him.  No aggravation. I am going to use him again and again!

A note of sincere appreciation

Dear Bob,

After two years, we have finally sold our house.  A note of sincere thanks to you for rescuing our home from disaster time and time again over these years.  A special thanks go to the RGH team who made the house desirable to buyers.

Held up in great fashion during the storm


It's Bob and Emily. Just letting you know that the new construction held up in great fashion during the storm. It was the first storm in over 20 years that we didn't worry about flooding. It was very solid in the wind. Thanks for a nice job.

We have also been called by two potential customers and given you good recommendations. Hope you got the business."

Listens to what you have to say

“He did a gut job renovation of our kitchen, added a powder room, renovated a bathroom, did roofing, replaced 20 huge windows in a sunroom, insulation, painting, etc. He’s very polite, treats women with respect, listens to what you have to say. He’s just a really nice guy.”


“Bob Hume did an upstairs bath renovation for us, and several other small-scale jobs over the years. His “bedside manner” and approachability don’t keep him from being a smart businessman, and his crews are responsive.”

Responsive and quite knowledgeable

“We are currently working with Bob Hume on remodeling our kitchen and 2 bathrooms. Started beginning of March. So far so good. He is responsive and quite knowledgeable. The only delays have been on our part (bath fixtures not getting delivered on time).”

Reliable and dependable

“Bob Hume is reliable and dependable.  He delivers a perfect project pursuant to requested specifications and within the agreed upon timeframes.  He is a pleasure to work with.  Bob’s team is very accommodating when issues arise during a project and they work with you to resolve them.”

We would not hesitate to recommend your company

“…We appreciate the great work you and your crews have done, making our various renovation projects proceed smoothly from beginning to end.  With our own busy work schedules, it was wonderful to be able to rely on RGH Development and not have to supervise any of the workers.  All of your staff was professional and courteous to the extreme, taking great care to leave our house clean, even in the middle of demolition, and always going the extra mile when necessary.  We would not hesitate to recommend your company and will certainly be in touch for future work.”

Best contractor experience we’ve ever had

“Bob and his team renovated our finished basement and several other areas of our home in South Orange, installing custom lighting and cabinetry and creating a high-tech home theater, gym area and fantastic playroom for our son. It was a high-end project that required a lot of custom work and attention to detail, as well as coordination with several other contractors. Bob and his team were thoughtful and responsive professionals from beginning to end. Far and away the best contractor experience we’ve ever had.”
