Bob & Sharon Bell
R Tews Construction completed a third remodeling project at our home this summer. After adding a family room a few years ago, we went back to them because their construction crew is very talented and pleasant to work with; their office staff has excellent communication tools, and the owner is regularly on-sight sharing his ideas and experience. We will use R Tews Construction again.
Best remodel experience ever! This was my first experience with a major remodel, and it was such a positive experience! It was important for me to get the remodel right for my mother, and from start to finish, Steve, Jessica, and the rest of the R. Tews crew solved problems and inspired new vision for the space. The result was spectacular and a way better experience than I had ever anticipated. I cannot say more about their professionalism and knowledge. Thank you!!

Their communication and follow through with us as a subcontractor has resulted in a smooth process for us and their clients. We are proud to have our window treatments included in their new construction and remodel projects.
We can’t say enough about R. Tews Construction and Design and their incredible staff. We recently went through an extensive two part remodel which included new siding and stonework, demolition of old deck and building of a new deck and an entire kitchen remodel (which included removing walls). We were so impressed with the attention to detail their team had. Our house was built in the 70’s and had a few “glitches” here and there and the crew was amazing to address them, not just proceed and “make it work.” The process went great and we have a beautiful house from the inside out!
The gutting of the kitchen was done during the winter months and the crew set me up of a make-shift kitchen in the garage to get through process. Working with Jessica was amazing, she has so many wonderful ideas and was so quick to get back to me on any questions or concerns I had with the design. Again, the crew did everything in their power to make the process go as smoothly as possible. The outcome is absolutely amazing! Again, attention to detail was key for them and it is so very much appreciated.
If you are looking to do any type of work on your house, we recommend this great team very highly, you won’t be sorry!
Thank you R. Tews for your amazing work, patience and expertise!
Grant and Geri Allen
Wow! Amazing seeing the before and after – the room looks and feels so much bigger and warmer now. What a difference!
Once again, I can’t tell you enough how much we enjoyed working with everyone on this project: the R. Tews crew, and every one of your subs. They were professionals that eventually became friends.
After our house burned down, we hired R.Tews Construction to rebuild our home. Our original house was a log home package from Golden Eagle Log Homes. When we went back to them for the new house materials, they recommended R.Tews Construction to build it. It was an overwhelming project, dealing with new construction and the insurance company. However, construction went well and we worked through it with the help of R.Tews Project Manager, Steve. We are very happy with the result! Our new home is nicer than the original one because we made changes that we always wished we’d done the first time. Special thanks to Jessica, R-Tews Designer, who picked out the perfect paint colors! We are impressed with the workmanship and attention to details! Thank you to the staff and crew at R.Tews Construction- the result is a warm, inviting, comfortable home that we are very proud of!
Sandy and Craig 2016
Just want to thank you for helping make our new “cabin” so perfect. We absolutely love it and your creative suggestions pulled it all together.
Cheryl and Robert- 2016
From our first meeting with Randy, we were impressed with his ability to conceptualize what we were trying to accomplish in the remodeling our twenty year old home. In a very short time, Randy understood our vision and came back to us with a well thought out plan to get the job done, within our budget. As we progressed, there were some unexpected developments, as there is with any remodeling project, but Randy’s experience allowed him to come up with creative solutions that kept us moving forward.
At times we were almost overwhelmed with all of the decisions that had to be made. But Randy took the time to get to know us well enough so that he could present us with choices that were well aligned with our style and tastes, which greatly eased the decision making process.
Randy has a strong attention to detail. He focused his attention on the workmanship of his crew and made sure that everything was done to his satisfaction, as well as ours.
Randy also knows how to bring in the right people on a project. Our remodel was quite extensive; in fact, no room was left untouched. We always felt very comfortable with his crew. They were competent, personable and professional. Things almost seemed too quiet when they were all gone!
Our home has been completely transformed and expanded. From the siding, to the stonework, to the flooring, we love our “new house”, especially the kitchen.
We always speak highly of Randy when asked about our remodel project. We would most certainly recommend R. Tews Construction for your building project.
Mike and Cindy Dougherty
We could not be happier with the work done to our home by Randy and Paula Tews and their construction team. Our first project with R. Tews began in the late spring of 2006. We met with Randy on the remodeling of our kitchen. We wanted to create a totally new kitchen and expand it into an existing dining room. We also replaced a half bath on the same level as the kitchen, painted the whole first floor area and added hard wood floors in the living room and the new kitchen area to match our existing ones on the first floor.
One of the first things we noticed about Randy was his professionalism. He came to appointments on time and returned all phone calls promptly. His team was on time everyday, extremely considerate of us and our needs and cleaned up after themselves every night. He was a constant presence on our project and had things redone if he found them not up to his standards. Randy not only provided us with high quality work but expected no less from his suppliers and subcontractors. The day our kitchen cabinets arrived he was there to inspect them and before we had even seen them he had some of them marked as unacceptable and they were replaced. We learned very quickly to trust Randy and his judgment. His attention to detail and careful planning made it possible for our new kitchen to be finished a head of schedule. We have a wonderful new kitchen that is not only beautiful but very functional.
Our second project with R. Tews began the spring of 2007. There was no need to go out to bid with this job. We knew we would never be comfortable using anyone but Randy Tews. This new addition was on the second floor of our house. We had an office, new master bath and walk in closet added to our existing master bedroom. The whole upstairs was painted and windows were refinished. We also added an attached two-car garage to our existing two car garage with a big workshop. This addition was going to totally change the look of our house from the front and it was a big concern of ours. We wanted the addition to look like it was part of the original house design. Randy assured us that it would look great and he delivered as promised. We could not be happier with the end results. Every time we drive up to our house we are just thrilled with the final product. It looks like a brand new home.
Our third project with Randy was in the summer of 2008. We had a deck that extends off the back of our house and encompasses a 28ft. round pool redone. The original frame work was to stay and the green treated wood decking and rails were to be replaced with a new composite wood so that it would not have to be stained every year and we would not have to deal with dry, cracked railings. Randy was efficient as usual correcting all of the structural issues with the original deck and improving on the design of the deck. The deck looks fantastic and our house is now totally renovated to our complete satisfaction.
We could not be happier with the work ethic and quality of work provided by Randy Tews and his team at R. Tews Construction and Design. We would highly recommend them for any project you might be considering, big or small.
Christopher and PattiAnn Curtin
We just finished a major remodeling project with R.Tews Construction. Living in an older home, we wanted the new addition to complement our old, beloved home.
R. Tews put in every effort to guarantee the new room looks like “it has always been here.” We got everything we wanted, and more. R. Tews’ staff is professional, experienced and extremely nice to work with. We consider them part of the family now!
Kerry and Daniel Kincaid
R. Tews Construction & Design Inc. is an Interior decorators dream team to work with. I recently had that experience after being flown in from Canada to Chippewa Falls do a job, which in itself can be daunting when you’re not familiar with the Country let alone the community and its resources. My internet search found Randy’s company and my first call to him from Canada left me with a good feeling. My meeting with him after my first two interviews for the job sealed the deal for both myself and the home owner.
Randy was timely, professional, approachable and the same holds true for his entire team of workers. He makes every job his own personal project and no job is too small, right down to fixing a few tiles. He was a God send to my project and allowed me to quickly hit the ground running with it.
Randy’s crew was excellent to work with; communication is a must in my line of work and there was never a time when I could not call, text or email and gets a timely response. My clients are VERY pleased with the results of the job and will use R. Tews Construction & Design Inc. for any other projects they will have in their Chippewa Falls home. I highly recommend this company, the quality of work, eye to detail, professionalism, and friendliness is outstanding. If cloning a construction team is possible, please do so and send to Canada.
Charlot Morgan, Interior Decorator
Your team of experts completed my project with workmanship and attention to detail in a timely manner. The finished product was far beyond my expectation. Especially the design and construction of the lower level screen porch. I would recommend R. Tews Construction and Design, Inc., to anyone who has in mind a construction or remodel project.
John C Holdorf
We contracted R Tews to remodel our kitchen, bathroom, and family room. They also rebuilt our deck. This involved the design, demolition, and rebuilding of those areas. R Tews’ designer, Jessica, listened to our wants/needs and skillfully came up with a design that incorporated our desires with her design knowledge.
The R Tews staff then carried out the demolition of our old kitchen, bathroom, and deck. Plumbing and electrical were updated. New flooring and cabinets were installed. The deck was rebuilt in the same configuration but with composite material.
The result is a remodel that is both beautiful and functional. Overall, it was a very good experience.
Jessica is second to none at her trade. Together with Randy Tews, they thoughtfully created and carried out a design that meets our needs, desires, and living style. We were always comfortable with the staff of R Tews. They are very skilled at and proud of what they do and it shows. They were respectful of our home and family. I appreciated the “easiness” of having them in our home during the remodeling.
In summary, we are delighted with the high quality remodeling work that we had done by R Tews. He has a wonderful and skilled crew who take care of you and your home through the whole process. The end result is more than we could have hoped for when we started the project.
R. Tews Construction and Design was the builder we chose to add a 570 square foot kitchen addition which included an eating area, mud/laundry room, plus full basement. They understood our vision and made it a reality. We were very pleased with the quality of work by their crews and subcontractors. Their attention to detail, customer service and follow-up after the completion of the project was outstanding. We were so pleased with the experience that we have brought them back for additional projects and will soon be starting a another one. We recommend them to friends and neighbors with confidence as we know they will be well served.
Robin and Bob Burch
We have completed three projects with R. Tews Construction & Design. We continue to be pleased with their workmanship and quality. They are great people to work with and very professional.
Lon and Kris Blaser
Thank you for the beautiful addition and remodel. We obviously appreciate the solid structural quality, but being able to see theamazing finish work with close attention to detail is what we love looking at every day!
We can’t say enough about the caliber of those that work for you.They have always been considerate, courteous, and respectful of our family and our home.Our house has now become very user friendly to live in and entertain. It has become a great hangout for the girls’ friends.
Thank you for making our ideas a reality with your willingness to work with us and providing the quality workmanship that was important to us.
Based off a friend’s referral, I went to R. Tews Construction’s showroom, because I wanted to upgrade my kitchen countertops. Jessica put me at ease and now I sure love my new quartz tops! They make such a difference.
All the workers were enjoyable and nice. I have already been telling people how happy I am, having hired R. Tews Construction. I praise them highly and have no trouble referring them to others.
Betty & Frank Mezera
We began working with R. Tews Construction & Design in April 2003. My husband and I were interested in adding onto our 1-½ story house, so that it better fit our 5-person family. What impressed us up front was the promptness in which our calls were returned from Randy Tews. After our first meeting with Randy, it was pretty clear to us, that he had been in this business a long time, knew how to remodel an older house such as ours, and cared about quality. We thought the design that was presented to us was excellent and fit all of the needs of our young family. The toughest part was definitely waiting for the schedule to open up, so construction could begin on the addition we had decided on.
Construction began on our addition in November 2003 and continued approximately through March 2004. During that time period there were very few days when someone was not at our house working. We thought the scheduling of the various sub-contractors was excellent as the work flowed well, and we were never waiting for someone such as the electrician or plumber to come. The crews from R. Tews Construction & Design were always polite, professional and informative. Any of our concerns during the construction phase were addressed promptly, and Randy Tews continued to remain as assessable as he was during the design phase of our project. The overall concern for quality that we saw during the design phase also remained as we progressed through the 5-month project.
We’re very happy with our decision to add-on to the house, we love the looks of our remodeled house and all the extra space and rooms we now have. There seems to be plenty of horror stories out there about “bad” contractors. I always tell people that we were one of the lucky ones. I don’t think we could have found a company better than R. Tews Construction & Design, and we would highly recommend them to anyone considering a remodeling project.

Looking to remodel or add on to your current house? Our family would like to recommend R. Tews Construction and Design for your next project. Our family was looking to add more living space to our current house, and in the spring of 2004, we sat down with Randy Tews who provided us with many options regarding the addition as well as the cost of the addition. He was attentive and listened to our needs and designed our addition specific to our lifestyle.
We have added approximately 1,000 square feet to our home and everyone who comes in to see our home comments on seamless the addition is to the existing home. Our house looks like it was originally built with our current design and does not look at all like an addition was put on. Randy is particular about the craftsmanship and quality work of his crew. Randy was onsite many times during the construction phase and on several occasions, provided input and suggestions to ensure that the addition met our individual expectations and needs. The crew was also very cognizant of the fact that we continued to live in our house during the construction of the addition and took measures to ensure that our living arrangements went uninterrupted as much as possible.
We would highly recommend R. Tews Construction & Design for your next project. We couldn’t be happier with the quality of our project and the professionalism and courtesy that the crew at R. Tews Construction offered to our family during the construction of our addition.

To celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary my husband and I decide to remodel our home. We studied and searched for ideas. Once we agreed on what we wanted we had the mission of finding a contractor that could visualize our dream as well. I drove by a remodeling project that R. Tews Construction & Design was working on. I was impressed how they transformed an average looking house into a beautiful and inviting home. I never imagined when we met with Randy Tews that he could do the same for us. We wanted to make our manufactured home look like a log home. The experience, expertise, and most of all the enthusiasm Randy had impressed us. He made us feel anything is possible. During the remodeling Randy would come by to see how the project was coming along. He suggested ways to enhance the appearance of our home even more. He found ways to give us the look we wanted with cost in mind. The crew was great, very accommodating. Bob, John and Ralph did a good job with everything, especially the finishing touches. They made sure we were happy with their work. Steve oversaw the project as well. He answered our questions, explained how to maintain the appearance of our home. We are so happy with the results………..
We have the home of our dreams, thanks to R. Tews Construction & Design.
Dear Randy and Crew,
Now that we’ve had some time to get used to our new basement and also to make use of it with company we’ve had this summer, I just wanted to thank you for the nice job you did for us. We feel that it turned out very well, and everyone agreed that is looked great considering the small amount of space we had to work with.
We appreciated the efforts of you crew. They were all good guys and please thank them for me to.
Good luck with your future endeavors!
Our family decided to finish our basement. We hired R. Tews Construction & Design for the job, not only because a friend did refer us, because we were comfortable with Randy Tews and confident in his expertise and experience.
We are very pleased with our new recreational basement. It was finished in the time frame we gave R. Tews and the quality is terrific! Also, we know that R. Tews stands behind their work and would attend to any problems until the client is satisfied with the project.
Betsy and John Reagan
When considering the remodeling of my kitchen, friends and neighbors had recommended R Tews Construction for the job. They couldn’t have been more right. Randy and Steve met with me and walked through what I wanted. They listened to me, made creative suggestions and helped me layout a beautiful kitchen.
While the remodeling was taking place, their crews were conscientious about the fact that a family was still living in the house while the project was happening. Steve did a great job of informing me on a weekly basis as to what was going to be completed that week. He kept the project on task and it was actually completed ahead of schedule. Any issues that came up with suppliers were handled by Tews. I didn’t have to worry about anything.
Randy and Steve followed up with everything promptly and made sure every concern I had was addressed from the beginning to the end. No concern I had was too small. My kitchen turned out beautiful and very functional. I would definitely hire R Tews Construction for future projects and have recommended them to others who are considering building or remodeling.
I hired R. Tews construction and Design for the kitchen and exterior remodeling of my home. I listened to Randy’s presentation at the 2005 Home and Garden show in Eau Claire. Then I spoke with some of his former clients who gave him high cudos.
After seeing his work first hand I can say that I am more than satisfied with the quality of the work that was done. Randy’s attention to detail and his vision of the project matched my own expectations. I am very pleased with the overall project and I would certainly hire him again for any additional remodeling.
Rice Lake Wisconsin
During the winter of 2005 we experienced almost total destruction of our lake home due to a broken water pipe. I contacted R. Tews Construction & Design and asked for some help and guidance in dealing with all of these issues that I knew we would face in the coming months in trying to rebuild our home. Not only were they able to help in the process of design and rebuilding, but they were invaluable in helping us to deal with the insurance company as well. When we had questions about materials or design possibilities, they always had helpful suggestions or directions to speed the process along.
There were so many things we hadn’t considered, such as the health problems that might be encountered with mold growth following the severe flooding we experienced, but R. Tews had already considered the options and were ready with the answers we needed.
The experience and professionalism they brought to this project were greatly appreciated. We now have a lake home that we are excited to show off to everyone, constructed with all the highest quality materials, and with a pride of workmanship, which is obvious to all who see it.
Quality and Trust: My wife and I signed a contract with R. Tews Construction to build our new home on the existing property of my wife’s family on Lake Wissota. After interviewing other firms, we chose R. Tews Construction because of many factors, but the prime one was that Randy stressed he was fussy about details. That made our day. At the time, we lived in a suburb north of Chicago, so we could not be in Wisconsin every day. Because of the distance, communication was extremely important. There were daily phone calls and e-mails about materials, selection of options and styles, and even websites to check the products. But most importantly, what Randy said they would do, they did. That was huge for us.
The design and workmanship of our project is superb. For sure the “WOW” factor is at play. Even after our home was finished, Randy and Steve continued to keep in touch with us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. What a unique experience! Randy, his crew, and experienced subcontractors have provided us with a home that we are proud of and find extremely comfortable. We believe you can trust R. Tews Construction.
Julie and Chris Stein
Thanks to R. Tews Construction & Design, Inc., our home remodeling project was a positive experience for us from start to finish. We purchased our home in 2004 and soon realized something needed to be done in order to fully utilize both the main level and the finished lower level. The main level had a deck that needed to be replaced and the lower level needed better temperature control. We decided to replace the main level deck with a sunroom, screened porch and stairs with access to the backyard; we would add a sunroom, patio, fireplace and rezone the heating and cooling on the lower level.
We reviewed several regional contractors and settled on R. Tews Construction & Design, Inc., for several reasons:
After selecting R Tews, it was evident we had made the right choice, especially since the work was done in the middle of winter, because:
Based on our experience, we strongly recommend R. Tews Construction & Design, Inc., to anyone interested in a quality project.

Looking back on our kitchen/laundry remodel, I continue to be amazed at how “drop down dead gorgeous!!” the new kitchen is. Randy and Jessica took our dream of a “warm and welcoming” kitchen, the “center” of our home and made it a reality. We appreciated all the time and talent of Randy’s team and the attention to details. Jessica was amazing in pulling it “all together”, and having patience with our questions and concerns….pointing us in the right directions, as there are so many different ways to go!!! Randy’s crew is an excellent group of guys—enjoyed relating to them all—Dean, Tom, Tony, Kurt….all very respectful of being in our home, we kind-of miss them!!
Thank-you all!! Pat and Kathy
I just want to extend my (our) thanks to all of you and your team for the fine workmanship and service we received during our bathroom remodel project. Jessica and Steve did a great job guiding me through the process, and we are very happy with the finished product! We will definitely speak well of R. Tews Construction and Design, and we look forward to working with you again when we are able to update our kitchen!
It was a pleasure to work with you.
All the Best,
Cindy and Paul Bammel
After many years of attending the Parade of Homes, we have always been impressed with the work done by R Tews Construction. So when it was time for a kitchen remodel that was the first place we visited. By using careful, up-front planning, Randy knows how to make the experience as painless as possible. His designer Jessica worked with us to provide a detailed initial design. Randy then provided a reasonable budget and schedule up front, on paper — which he stuck to. We can’t emphasize how having everything done on schedule can make the process less stressful. He made no unrealistic or vague promises like other builders might do. He was personally involved with some of our more difficult decisions. His advice and experience were invaluable. He and Jessica also personally visited the job site periodically to speak to us and make sure everything was turning out as planned. We saw or spoke with his construction manager Steve nearly daily. When an unforeseen issue would come up, he always made it right, right away. His crews are courteous, neat, and meticulous. During the final inspection, Randy noticed and had corrected little things which even we had not seen. He does not, and will not; cut corners, and delivers what he promises. We are very pleased with our beautiful new kitchen, and with our choice to use R Tews Construction.
