Your Project Vision

Frequently Asked Questions

Discover the answers to the most common questions clients come to us with.

How Can I Get Started on a Project? 
The first step to getting started on a project is to contact us by filling out a form here on our website or giving Ray a call at (201) 396-1373.

From there, we will review your request and get back to you as soon as possible to set up a meeting to discuss your project in greater detail. Afterward, we will move forward with the process of getting you an estimate and advising you on what will need to be done before we can start a project. 
How Long Does a Typical Project Take? 
At the end of the day, how long a project will take is specific to your project.

However, we can offer ballpark estimates based on the different project types we help homeowners with. Typically, new home construction will take about 12 months to complete and a residential remodel/addition will take 6 - 9 months. Once we learn more about your vision for your project, we will be able to provide you with an estimated timeframe as well as costs. 
Can You Help Me Find Other Professionals (Architects, Engineers, etc) For My Project? 
Yes, with over two decades of construction experience in Northern NJ, we have developed strong relationships with seasoned, licensed professionals across a variety of disciplines. Whatever your project needs are, RAC Builders will help you assemble a great team.

Are You a Member of Any Professional Organizations? 
Yes, we are a registered member of the Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association of New Jersey. This is a local professional trade association affiliated with the New Jersey Builders Association (NJBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) to promote and protect the residential building industry. The goal of the association is to provide its members with resources to ensure safe, affordable, and quality housing to New Jersey residents. 

"We cannot speak more highly of Ray Celentano and his incredible team. We were absolutely lost when our house burnt down and as a young couple, we had no idea what we were doing. Ray took us in and helped us navigate the overwhelming process of building a home. He is knowledgeable, thoughtful, patient, hardworking and has excellent taste. His team gets things done and does them with the utmost quality. Most importantly, Ray does not just pack up his things and leave after the job is complete, but checks in and is always responsive when there are any issues or questions. He takes great care of his clients and his work is spectacular. Thanks to Ray, we were able to turn a bad situation into a blessing and we now have a beautiful home that we could have only imagined in our dreams."

"Whether you are looking to complete a large or small renovation look no further than RAC Builders LLC. From start to finish you can rest assured that Ray and his team will be honest, punctual, and professional, communicating the status of every detail of your project in a clear and concise manner. Ray truly cares about his clients’ satisfaction and understands the importance of being a reliable resource and project manager for his clients. We completed a large home addition with Ray and his team. Ray not only offered suggestions/advice on how to proceed with the project, but truly listened to our concerns and desires. The outcome was tremendous and not only met but exceeded our expectations. Ray made sure the renovation experience was as stress-free as possible, and we cannot thank him enough for that. We highly recommend RAC Builders LLC to anyone that is looking to renovate/remodel their home."
