“The selection of  W. J. Rapp Co., Inc. to do the demolition and pouring of the new slab was a good choice by Richmond Primoid. “

Linda, Property Manager


Dear Kenny,
I wanted to take this time to let you know how much the church appreciates the work that was done on our extensive garage renovation. From the very beginning I had a good feeling about this job and the contractors that were awarded this project.

Bob Smith handling the drawings and your participation in all of the meetings that we had concerning this project, with all of the many different sub-contractors, were always done on time with the greatest care to make sure the church received the best job possible.

I was so happy when Richmond Primoid was awarded the bid and selected to be the main contractor because I have worked with this firm on many different occasions and knew they would take care to give the church a quality job. The selection of W. J. Rapp Co., Inc. to do the demolition and pouring of the new slab was a good choice by Richmond Primoid. The day of the slab being poured I was so amazed to see all of the chief officers of their companies there at 5:00 am to oversee this work.

Bob Smith from your company was first one on site and remained through the entire day’s activities.

Richmond Primoid selected a good project manager, Wes Coston, and he made sure to always ask what we wanted and then explained and answered my many questions about the work detail.

We could not have been happier about the way this renovation progressed. We set the goals and deadlines and they were all achieved. I have done many major projects in my 20 years at the church but found this one to be without a doubt one of our finest.

Please accept our thanks for a job well done and pass along our thanks to all of the many companies that were involved in this project. I look forward to working with your firm again and will indeed call on you when we need a consultant or a structural engineering firm.

Hope you have a good holiday season.
