From the moment I first spoke with Scott, I knew he was going to be great. He gave us confidence he could get the job done, he was knowledgeable and gave us great suggestions along the way, and always found a solution when we encountered a roadblock. Scott and his team were professional and communicative, and they got everything done pretty much on time. Even though he is a busy guy, we felt like a priority the entire time, and we will definitely be using Scott again in the future for our next project.

Scott was referred to us by a colleague at work. From the start of our project, Scott distinguished himself with his clear communication, honesty and willingness to make practical recommendations. He was good at explaining the tradeoffs of various options and helping us make a choice. We did a host of projects with him. From work in the kitchen, to improving our views from the upper floor, and the big project of expanding a ground floor bedroom with a deck on top of it. He and his crew worked diligently to get things done on time. He was often on site, and always available on the phone. He took our feedback seriously and would ensure we were satisfied. We recommend him highly!

We really enjoyed working with Scott. From the very beginning he was resourceful, communicative and honest. He has an exceptional team that works hard and does a great job.
He brought some solutions to the conversations that I wouldn’t of thought of and was very conscientious and making sure that our needs are being met every step of the way.
Our kitchen remodel was due to a flood and he was so kind to make sure that the sink was working so that we can be functional before the project started. The project stayed on budget and mostly on time- and any minor delays were communicated.
I love that he paid close attention to detail and was very hands-on.
We are enjoying the kitchen and our new floors everyday. We would not hesitate to use Scott Lee Rudge again and are so happy to refer him to our neighbors and friends.

We discovered Scott through a mutual contact and his expertise was
evident from the start. Scott is completely renovating our 2,500 sq
ft main residence and we could not be happier. He’s extremely
organized in his approach, focused on both quality and schedule, and
fair and patient with us as we work through changes. His work is
amazing. Our only hesitancy in recommending him is that he’ll become
too busy for additional projects with us in the future. We will use no

Wow, where do I start. I can’t say enough good things about Scott Lee Rudge Construction. My wife and I selected Scott to lead our custom home build, which is the first home my wife and I have built together, so we had lots to learn. The building process went exceptionally smoothly with Scott. Over the course of the project, Scott was always very communicative, and set our expectations well. There were a few challenges along the way, but Scott always worked collaboratively with us to determine the best resolution. The home turned out well beyond our expectations and a big part of that was attributable to Scott.
With zero hesitancy, we subsequently asked Scott to assist with a rental remodel, which sold quickly afterwards, and a large secondary structure on our property, an ADU. I’ve also referred Scott to close friends, and he did an exceptional remodel for them.
I think you would be hard pressed to find a better builder than Scott and his team.

Scott Lee Rudge renovated my home in PB and I was very pleased. He is a
man of his word, which is very important to me. The quality of the
workmanship was excellent and he stayed in touch with me constantly during
When problems came up, as they always do in construction, he explained my
options clearly and went the extra mile to get me the best result.
He kept to the timeline and he got me back in my home on the agreed upon
I recommend Scott to my friends and I would use him again.

Scott came highly recommended to us by our good friend Greg for a kitchen
remodel. Scott worked closely with us on the design and throughout the
process - he was there every morning to kick the day's work off. From
complete demo to final painting was about 6 weeks - on schedule and on
budget. Scott's team was courteous, careful, respectful and addressed any
and all questions, concerns and issues quickly and effectively. Our kitchen
came out AMAZING! We have recommended Scott to several friends and family -
he is our go-to guy for any and all future construction projects.

We were recommended Scott Rudge by our realtor, after purchasing a large home needing updating and remodeling.
After our initial meeting, Scott offered to have us tour two of his recent home projects: a remodel and a new construction. At both sites, the homeowners greeted Scott with handshakes and hugs, which we took as a good sign!
Over the past nine months, the following projects have been planned, scheduled, and completed:
- Full kitchen including cabinets, sinks, quartzite counter tops, lighting, appliances.
- Three full bathrooms and one powder room – again full scope of flooring, vanities, plumbing, fixtures, lighting. Our master bath is a showcase and magazine worthy, with the addition of a chandelier, make-up area and smart toilet.
- The laundry room was redesigned for higher function and efficiency.
- The master closet containing the home’s electronics was redone to include a closet, keeping the equipment behind closed doors.
- The family room fireplace mantel, cabinets, and ceiling lights were replaced.
- An outdoor shower was installed.
- Hardwood floors were replaced on the entire first floor.
This is a significant amount of work over the past nine months! One of Scott’s goals was to minimize the disruption to our day-to-day home life, and as he said, “Give you back your home” as soon as possible.
Scott is the contractor we could trust. His attention to detail, high personal standards and excellent communication have kept us well informed on the progress, the challenges and the solutions. We have an incredible home to enjoy for many years. Scott patiently followed through the plan for each phase to ensure all steps were discussed, with our comfort. The integrity and commitment to excellence by all the people Scott uses made us feel comfortable that the work was done right, on time and on budget. We highly recommend Scott for any work you desire to have done at your home or business.
We consider it a blessing to have gotten to know Scott and thank him and his team for their outstanding work at our home.

We completed a master bath remodel with Scott in the spring of 2020. During this process we interviewed designers, design-build contractors, and contractors. Scott was referred to us by a friend who had her kitchen remodeled by him and his team. Once we met him we knew he was the fit for us. He helped us with design issues and was very straightforward when I’d come up with a crazy idea that he thought wouldn’t work or where the bang wouldn’t be worth the buck. He promised a six week time frame and I think we were pretty much done in the time and within the budget he projected. His team was awesome. We were concerned about having people in our house during the COVID spring but they were cautious and completely respectful. Scott was instrumental in advising us and his suggestions were spot on. We ended up with the bathroom we’ve been dreaming about since we bought our house. The workmanship is second to none, the cabinet company he uses is amazing, and we were able to live/work in our home during the remodel because they were totally clued in to our needs. I am relieved and grateful we’ve found a contractor who I can trust and whose standards are as high as ours. This will be a long term relationship and I can recommend him wholeheartedly.
