Here are some building testimonials from customers we’ve satisfied over the years.

When you want quality work, you want the experts at R. Clary Builders.

“From start to finish our 2 story, 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home was completed in 4 months and 20 days; ahead of Clary’s estimated time frame. R Clary Builders Inc, specifically Rick Clary and Sage Carrasco, were professional, thorough, attentive and completely involved in our home project.

Both Rick and Sage were responsive and quick to answer our questions and very prompt in their follow-up. At the end of each day the workers cleaned up around the construction site, such that this was even noticed by our neighbors who were also impressed.

We have recommended R Clary Builders to our friends, family and co-workers. We will call upon them in the future for other renovation projects.”

-McCrea Ohana / Kailua, H

“Clary did an extensive renovation of our existing home which included an overhaul of the existing house and a two-story new addition. When that was finished they built a separate garage with an apartment over the top. All the work was very professional, moved along quickly and came in on budget.

They didn’t sweat the small changes that I made throughout the process and charged reasonably for any big changes. Once the project was done, they came back and addressed some things that we noticed over time living in the home.

I was very pleased and have recommended them to several friends.”

-Boom-Kojima Ohana / Manoa, Hawaii

“Thank you R. Clary Builders. Our two sons are getting married this year and we wanted to make an addition to an existing home to accommodate their families.

We had a package home with a retaining wall built on the property in two months! It was finished just in time for one son to get married and move in. The minor renovation to the existing home and the tie-in in the enclosed patio was also completed in a timely manner.

Rick listened to our ideas, made suggestions, and designed and built a beautiful attached home. Our neighbors, friends, and relatives all marveled at the quick build and the quality workmanship. Now, we are looking forward to our second son getting married and moving in too! Thanks again.”

-Nako Ohana / Kaneohe, HI

“We chose R. Clary Builders as our contractor because they do excellent work. From demolition to a newly built home in 3 ½ months is amazing. Everything came together so quickly without compromising quality of workmanship.

Thank you for building us a beautiful home that we will enjoy for years to come. If anyone is looking to renovate or build a new home give R. Clary Builders a call, you will not be disappointed. With Rick and Brenda’s combined experience they are an awesome team.

R. Clary Builders is the only contractor we would recommend to our family and friends and will definitely use them again in the future.”

-Palea Ohana / Kaneohe, HI

“Was very satisfied and happy with home renovation completed by Clary Builders. They accomplished project on time and within quoted cost. The Clary team—Rick, Sage and Joe—were always responsive to our queries and needs. 

We have been back in house for over 8 months and have experienced no problems associated with renovation. Would highly recommend Clary Builders for any new or existing home project.

-John Harris / Kaneohe, HI

“Everything was on time and as agreed upon. First rate job, on budget and on time.

-Wayne Jackson / Kaneohe, HI

“I met R.Clary Builders as a referral from a friend. From the very first meeting with Rick he was helpful; always did what he promised, and did it when he said it would be done.

I had hired an architectural group (architect, structural engineer and civil engineer) prior to meeting Rick.

Although the architectural group was difficult for me and all associated with the project, Rick was able to bring the project to a very satisfactory conclusion well within budget.

It was refreshing, indeed, to work with a true professional.”

-Norm & Sharon James / Kahaluu, HI

“We had planned to do an extension for quite some time. I asked Rick Clary of R. Clary Builders to give me some ideas and an estimate as he came highly recommended by family and friends. Meeting Rick will give you a sense of trust and sincerity. He stands behind what he builds and guarantees his work. Because of Rick’s experience he was able to give us great ideas to improve the project and save us money at the same time. His estimate was well within reason.

All of the materials were delivered on schedule and the work was completed well in advance of the anticipated timetable. His crew at Clary builders did the work in a timely, organized, and professional manner. The job site was cleaned and I was left wondering why we waited so long to do the project. I would highly recommend R. Clary Builders and will use them in the future.”

-The White Ohana / Kaneohe, HI

“We recently renovated our house after 22 years and we are so happy that we had R.Clary Builders do the renovation. They were meticulous in every aspect of the project. We were very impressed with the extra attention to detail that they added to every phase of the renovation. Rick is a great contractor who brought in reliable subcontractors to ensure a seamless flow of work to keep the project moving in a timely manner.

It was a pleasure to have the workers on our property knowing that they treated this house as if it was their house during the construction phase. Now that the project is completed, we miss our extended ohana of builders. We also miss our cabinet man, he is the best!

We still cant believe that we have the dream house that we have always wanted and we are so grateful to R.Clary Builders for making that dream come true! Me ko makou mahalo nunui.”

-John, Kaohu & Kai Cazinha / Kaneohe, HI

“We wish to thank you for an outstanding job in constructing our new Pauoa home.

Rick: from the demolition of our old home, excavation of the existing adobe soil, backfilling with quarry fill (47 truck loads), to the construction of our two-story 5 bedroom and three baths structure within four months indicates a well managed construction effort on your part.

Brenda: your suggestions and coordination on the interior of the new house, from the kitchen with appliances, countertops, cabinets and lighting, to the bath fixtures and flooring helped make our selections easier and satisfying.”

-Leong Ohana / Pauoa, HI

“Being a first time homeowner and having that home built was such an adventure. We had to learn everything from financing, to building plans, and the most important step in finding a reliable contractor that really considers you, the homeowner, an important part of the process. My husband and I found Rick Clary through Honsador. We had our home built from the ground up in 2 1/2 months. This really helped financially because we were paying the bank and our rent at the same time. Rick listened to our every concern. He was always willing to make changes to the plan and make adjustments to please us. His electrician worked with my husband to add extra outlets and fans that were not included in the plans. Rick’s wife, Brenda, helped us pick out carpeting, tile, baseboards, paint color, etc. She always responded promptly to every email that we sent. Rick and his wife made the process virtually painless.

Overall, we were very pleased with the job that was done. For up to a year after we got the keys to the house we could call Rick if any problems arose. He would respond quickly to solve the problem.

We have been given a home that will be cherished by our family for many years to come. We have recommended R. Clary Builders to our friends and acquaintances.”

-John & Linda Feliciano / Kailua, HI

“Our project involved taking everything in a 3/2 home down to the walls and foundation, then upgrading. Cabinets, fixtures and flooring were all removed. The kitchen and bath now have custom cabinets and countertops, and the house has new paint and flooring throughout.

R Clary did everything we contracted for, and more. The work was on time and under budget, and the quality was excellent. The company did several small things that I did not expect and that we’re not specifically included in the contract (replaced all electrical outlets to be sure they matched the decor, replaced plastic refrigerator water feed lines with copper, upgraded wall switches, etc.). They were a pleasure to work with!”

-Jan Henry / Kailua, HI

“We completed a full home renovation in 2014. Our experience with R Clary Builders was incredible from beginning to end. There was no “wish” too small or too large. We were accommodated throughout the process and our final product was WONDERFUL. I recommend R Clary Builders to anyone considering a renovation.”

-Babyack Ohana / Kailua, HI

“I added 2,400 square feet onto an existing 900 square foot structure using R.Clary Builders. Rick scheduled in professional crews, kept costs down whenever possible, communicated well with me (this is really REALLY important), handled problems professionally and quickly, and finished the job in record time.

His commitment to MY satisfaction was his #1 priority throughout the entire build. The result is a gorgeous addition within my budget. I would use him again and recommend him highly to anyone thinking of building new, renovating or remodeling. R.Clary Builders, no ka oi!”

– Herlinda Lopez / Waimanalo, HI

“Clary Builders built our four bedroom home in a timely, professional manner. We decided to demolish our quaint 3 bedroom, 2 bath house and build a spacious four bedroom, three bath new home.

After almost twenty years in a smaller residence, Rick and his crew helped our dream home become a reality. We now have a house that can grow with us. His subcontractors worked expeditiously to help complete our home. We are extremely happy with R.Clary Builders meticulous work and attention to detail.

Now our home is a place where we are comfortable in our everyday life, and it is also a place that we can share with our family and friends. Thanks R. Clary Builders for helping us have the home of our dreams.”
