After having a three part demo/reconstruction of our property, RBG, Inc was by far the most efficient, pleasant experience of the project. Building a pool house, swimming pool were the first two (2) stages. The main house was the third. A record snow did not deter RBG and we did not miss a day. The professionalism, time schedule, attention to detail, cleanliness and openness to homeowner feedback was outstanding. By having theCEO of RBG on site regularly kept the subcontractors on schedule and their work inspected at all times. Change orders were negotiated and a reasonable price/outcome was discussed and executed between RBG and the homeowner. The “we will make right” of RBG and all of it’s employees was a defining characteristic of the project. In choosing RBG we experienced a hassle free selection of amenities, carpets, paint, etc. selections. We loved their design center. Kellie was instrumental in alleviating our stress by showing us amenities in our home and at RBG. After our project was completed (and all checks cashed) RBG was available and friendly to our calls/concerns and needs. We had a walkthrough and a one year walk-through to address any issues. We have recommended RBG to many people and have had fantastic responses. If you would like to visit our home and tour/talk to us personally, please contact us at 610-639-6919.

We were pleased with the professionalism of the entire process from initial planning to the completion of the house. At the beginning of the job wewere provided a timetable and Jim was able to stay on target and finish our house just as he said he would.

We loved our neighborhood and property, but our small split-level home did not accommodate the needs of our busy family. The rooms and storage spaces were small and the flow of the house was choppy. We looked for over a year at both new construction and remodeling projects and decided a substantial addition and remodel of our existing home would be an attractive solution. After meeting with many builders our hopes of transforming our split-level home began to fade. Then we met Jim Renehan.
Jim’s enthusiasm for the project and his professional, responsive manner made him stand out among the crowd. He became our first choice as a builder and more importantly, after completing our project, he would still be our first choice today.
From our initial meeting, through the building process and to its completion, Jim’s guidance, thoroughness and commitment were exceptional.
Jim commands a great deal of respect in the industry and is able to attract and retain the top talent. Everyone on Jim’s team was knowledgeable and very responsive to our needs. The quality of construction was consistently evidenced from the framing and drywall to the trim work and cabinetry.
Jim’s personal involvement and attention to detail throughout the project created a beautiful and well built home for our family that was completed ahead of schedule and on budget!

People always warned us about the horrors of building a house, these warnings had us scrambling to find the perfect house on the market. After2 years of searching, we decided to take the leap and try building. Wes pent months meeting with several of the area’s builders and just did not get the best feeling for one reason or another.
Upon first meeting Jim Renehan, we sensed that not only could we trust that we would get a great finished product, but that the process was not going to be painful as many people had warned. It was that night we decided to go with Renehan Building Group.
Now that our house is finished, I can honestly say our first impression of Jim Renehan was spot on. The process went as smoothly as possible, in fact, we even enjoyed the experience. Jim and his team worked with us tirelessly to ensure that the finished product is exactly what we had en visioned. There were no hidden costs. Jim and his team even helped us save money. Jim’s honesty was another attribute that ensured a great building process. He met all of the deadlines and even delivered the final project ahead of the original deadline. There were no surprises. Jim’s level of communication was impeccable, whether it was on the phone or meetings in person, there was never a time we were not involved. Lastly, he has a very approachable personality, reassuring us that no issue was too small to address.
It is clear that building is not a just a job for Jim Renehan, but a passion.The attention to detail, availability to his clients, and careful planning and execution all contribute to a pleasurable building experience. Jim’s goal of customer satisfaction was achieved and then some. We could not be happier with the whole experience and our new home!
– Amy & David Singer
Jim Renehan is an exceptional builder. From start to finish, he had such an incredible sense and capability to envision what we wanted in our home. We were a first time home builder, but with extremely particular taste. He knows how to build a great home, while still maintaining a sound fiscal understanding of the project. During the process, he encouraged a very relaxed and creative environment that made the process enjoyable. Further, he is driven by an unending interest in the project with a true craftsman passion for personalizing your home. While I interviewed several builders, Jim Renehan had integrity and persona that makes you proud to call him your builder. We were extremely critical and he exceeded our expectations in every category. I plan to refer anyone that is interested in building a home to him.
– David Singer
RBG gave attention to every detail, listened to my needs and reflected it in the home they built. No request was too small or too big.
Top notch customer relations and attention to detail by Liz, Chris, Jim,Donna, and Kellie from start to finish!
When I was introduced to Renehan Building Group and plans were already in progress for the home I wanted to purchase, I wanted to make some cosmetic changes to customize the home for me. The team quickly pivoted and was extremely accommodating in ensuring that my needs were heard and met!
Solid communication-loved the Client Project Access, which is a unique/site/portal where all the changes and progress was captured. It was user friendly, provided the customer the ability to track changes and be informed with estimates, pictures, etc.

We spent 4 months and viewed over 50 homes during our new home search. Along the way several of our friends shared horror stories about their experiences with large builders and the lack of quality in the current housing industry. What we saw in many of the new homes and newer pre-owned homes was shoddy workmanship and “cookie-cutter” design. Many of the homes had the same issues that we’re trying to leave from our previous home including: low quality/poor efficiency windows and doors, floor plans that resulted in cold rooms where all of the heat was trapped in the vaulted ceilings instead of at “body level” where we needed it, rooms that were not sized appropriately to allow comfortable family gatherings and homes that were indistinguishable and impersonal.
When we toured the home renovated by the Renehan Building Group, we saw something very different. A marriage of an older home and a new addition that was unique and perfect for our family’s needs. After touring the home with Jim Renehan and discussing the floor plan, the major systems of the home and the construction design, we knew we had found a well-built home that we all loved.
From the time we signed the agreement of sale to the time Jim handed over the keys to the front door, we felt like we were working with both a conscientious professional and a trusted friend.
The process of building our home with Renehan Building Group was very interactive; we felt that we could comfortably voice our opinions and concerns and Jim would respond with well thought out solutions or options. Having the ability to have an open and honest dialog with our builder made this momentous event in our lives much less stressful. Of course there were deadlines and critical decisions to be made but Jim was always available to answer our questions, offer his expert opinions and guide us through the choices.
Jim’s quick and complete response to the items on our “final walk through punch list” was way above and beyond our expectations. He personally checked out every item and had them repaired within 2 weeks. He held his subcontractors to his high standards and brought them back to repair/repaint/reconstruct anything that was not completed to our satisfaction.
Jim’s continued support and dedication to quality workmanship and Renehan Building Group’s 1 year home warranty have eased us over the bumps of owning a new home.
Responded quickly to phone and email messages – always available
Open to our ideas, even changing implementation to meet our needs
Always approachable and never condescending
My husband is a systems engineer and always strives to understand why things work and how they could work better. Even after closing, Jim continues to take a personal interest in his questions, researches the answers right along with him, and works with the contractor specialists to ensure optimum performance from the systems within our home.
Quality of workmanship
Excellent materials, extra reinforcement, quality construction, plenty of outlets and built-in overhead lighting.

Jim, I want to follow-up Stephen’s sentiments expressed to you yesterday, but on behalf of the entire family. You were always extremely professional without ever losing sight of the emotional difficulty this sale was for my family.
You are a rare and unique person of integrity and high standards, Jim, and wish there were more like you. Fortunately for the Leonard family, we were able to experience pleasure of conducting business with you.
As I said to you before, my parents would have called you a keeper. Knowing you would have softened their blow of having to sell the house for sure.
We look forward to periodically seeing your work in progress. Good luck with your new home renovations – we are excited for you and your family.
It is a great place to raise children. We’ll take you up on your invitation to check that out too.
I hope our paths cross again. The Leonard family says thank you again For EVERYTHING you have done for us and we wish the Renehan family only the best.
– Cindy Mills
Jim, Chris, John & Beverly- You are all the best! You completely transformed our home. Everything looks so beautiful and I can’t believe that we get to live here now! There were so many different elements to this project. It was impossible to fathom but you completely exceeded our expectations.
– MaryRita and Don Clark
Kathy, I just want to say to you that you were always extremely caring as you conducted business with me and on behalf of the Leonard family and my mom, just want to thank you for all you did for us.
We will always recommend the Renehan Group not only because of Jim, but because of you. You are an important part of your success.
– Cindy Mills
You almost think that they are building their own personal home, they put so much commitment and thought into your home.
– Colin and Beth Mooney
RBG did an excellent job renovating a space in our home for my elderly father. Special attention was given to ADA requirements which made the area easily accessible via wheelchair. Practical yet very aesthetically pleasing; my father completely enjoyed his bedroom and bath.
– Lisa Dreyer
We feel that Jim Renehan went above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction with the end product. For over a year leading up to our project, he took the time to meet with us at various “potential” locations where we explored the possibility of renovating existing homes and gave advise and counsel without any commitment on our part. Once we finally found the right location it was an easy decision to choose Renehan Building Group for the task of building our home. Jim met with us on and off site whether scheduled or not. He was flexible when we requested changes or extra work and he communicated whether the changes would result in additional cost and/or delays. He was willing to explore our suggestions and ideas from reclaiming an existing kitchen to installing a geothermal system. There were township requirements that fell outside the scope of our contract and Jim took full responsibility to ensure the requirements were met. Permit issues were seamless from our perspective. The final product is a testimony in itself to the fine workmanship and thought that went into our home.
Kellie Mackie was helpful in coordinating the selections process. She was patient and calm throughout the time we worked together. Kellie helped us with selections and worked toward getting the best result for the cost. For example, the appliances we chose had a rebate promotion and she made sure we took full advantage of this offer. She also directed us to tile, granite and kitchen cabinet vendors with the same objective – getting the most value for a fair price. Kellie followed through and followed up for which we are grateful.

Our project involved the total “gutting” renovation and remodel of our 100 plus year old home in Malvern borough. We asked four different builder/remodelers to bid on our project. Only Renehan Building Group gave us the feeling of confidence that the work would be done at a high quality and that the project would be done on time and on budget. Jim personally worked with us through all the big issues that always come up on large projects like ours and we felt that he listened and worked for a fair outcome. Chris, Kelly and Liz ensured that our project moved along and made progress. We always felt that our project was RBG’s top priority even though we knew that they were handling at least eight others. RBG, thank you for turning our architects plans into reality.
– Gene Amparo and Tammy Newman
Quality, transparency and integrity are the words that best describe the Renehan Building Group! From start to finish, working with the Renehan team was a complete pleasure. The entire process was easily managed and captured via their online system, which tracked all our email communications, hosted photos of the progress being made at the site on an ongoing basis, and included details of change orders requested to ensure accuracy. Perhaps the most impressive element to our building experience was the unsurpassed personal attention we received from every member of the Renehan team. Starting with our first meeting, everyone was professional, friendly, responsive, and went out of their way to ensure every detail pertaining to our custom home met or exceeded our expectations.
Our questions were always addressed promptly and completely, and Jim Renehan consistently made it a point to personally meet with us to explain details regarding critical milestones during the building process. The Renehan Building Group built us our dream home and we could not be happier with the finished result.
– Kristin & Troy Fix
As the other owner of the home that RBG renovated, I can provide my experience through the eyes of a wife and mother, and I was home for most of the construction. I found RBG to be extremely professional and very sensitive to our needs and comfort. Jim Renehan, personally, inspected the work throughout the project, and his site manager, Chris Lake, came almost daily to check progress, to ensure the various subs left the house neat, and to check on our comfort and satisfaction. They were also collaborative in that they followed through on our ideas and gave their thoughts, too, to make our house even better. They were cognizant of costs and maintained an open line of communication, particularly if our plans would take us off budget.
I also liked that RBG hired stellar subs with an eye for quality and craftsmanship while being courteous and understanding that a family continued to live in the house. If there was ever a problem, I just told Chris and/or Jim, and any issues were resolved immediately. When you are going through the stress and mess of home renovations while maintaining a family life, working and running a household, you want a team that can take care of problems immediately, after one report. You need less stress, not more, and that’s what you get with RBG.
Bottom line, we couldn’t be happier. We liked them so much that we’re having them do the rest of the work in our house and will use them again for another property.
– Lynn & Dan Heth
Quality does meet craftsmanship…RBG puts so much effort and service into creating your dream home or renovation project. They make it seem like you are the only client they have.
– Colin and Beth Mooney
In a day and age where customer service is not always up to par, along comes RBG where service and the customer are top priority. Their professionalism, listening skills and attention to detail are unmatched.
The entire RBG team gets behind your dream home project and work hard with your budget and expectations to make it all work.
– Colin and Beth Mooney
We are so excited to be in our new home. We are thankful to you and your team for such a pleasant experience and for making some friends along the way.
– Jen & Mike O’Mara
Our experience working with Renehan Building Group was straightforward and as easy as building a custom home can be. The staff is exceptional.
Everyone has a distinct role, is good at their job and very easy to work with. They are all kind and passionate about the process. Our home is of high quality and has many distinct qualities, rather than looking exactly the same as the homes nearby. Renehan Building Group made the process of building a custom home positive and we are very happy with our new home.
– Patty Heppelman
Renehan came highly recommended and they were always customer first. The house was a labor of love but well worth the effort and time. We are looking forward to filling it with years of love, laughter and fun filled
– The Sharmas
Renehan’s communication was excellent. Their website and Build Right system was an important tool to monitor progress, coordinate selections, track costs and communicate efficiently. The cost was a good value for
the finished product.
