About the Name
RMV is an acronym for the first letter in each of our children’s names from oldest to youngest. This acronym also lends itself to 3 guiding principles.
Reputation – In the contracting business reputation still matters. Quality builders that deliver value tend to be the best quoted. We understand that maintaining our positive reputation is dependent on what we say and do everyday. And while we acknowledge we have made mistakes we also fix our mistakes.
Mission – Do good work and get paid for it. Simple as it sounds there’s a lot to that statement. Our mission is to provide a finished product that meets what is expected. As in true, straight, plumb, level, sized right, valued right, and installed correctly. Now while we acknowledge that construction is not an exact science the difference between good and bad makes all the difference to the customer and we strive to always do good work.
Every customer is a reference. We value our customers so we expect our customers to value us. The old saying “under promise and over perform” is not consistent with the savvy customer of today. Customers know about the building process so part of our mission is to tell it like it is. Projects can extend for years from the initial contact with a customer so it’s important to us that the customer has a positive experience. That experience rests on our ability to translate the customer’s budget and expectation into a positive reality as every customer is a reference
Value – Value is taking lumber, concrete, steel and combining them with knowledge, experience, ability and desire to produce something that employees and the owner can feel satisfied with. 30 plus years of experience does count for value. That value is very important to our customers.
