What people say about us

Mrs. Frietas

RYKA General Contractors turned our Hampton Inn into condo’s by adding kitchens and renovating our rooms. We are very pleased with the work that was done, since then we have had many compliments from our guest and owners

If you’re searching for a commercial construction company that delivers excellence from start to finish, look no further than Ryka. They are truly the best in the business, and we are grateful for their outstanding work.

Helmuth Raith

Eric Powell and RYKA General Contractors have been one of our preferred vendors for over 4 years now. We have been using them for many of our repairs, bathroom renovations, hurricane damage repairs, window replacement just to name a few. We are in the planning process for building a storage facility and Eric has been a great help in budgeting for the project. I would recommend RYKA to anyone seeking an honest professional for any of their own projects.

Ryan (Ryka Builders) is the best person to call for Construction/ Remodel needs. I am a new homeowner and I was wary calling a random handyman, but gave Ryan a call as I didn’t know anyone in town. He made the appointment for 9am (the next day from the day I called) and was at my house at 9am on the dot. He gave me the cost of the labor plus the part the day before so I knew what to expect to pay. (I usually buy the parts ahead of time to avoid marked up parts).

He does not mark up the price of his parts. He even fixed some extra drywall for me at no extra charge. He is not the type of person who up charges or tries to get extra money out of you. He is an honest business man who does a good job and even will help trouble shoot any problems he sees in the process. This was one of the most pleasant “house repair fixes” I’ve had to deal with (aside from having to pay for a house repair). I highly recommend Ryan with Ryka, he is licensed and insured (I wondered that myself as it didn’t say). And does a great job at a fair price with no hidden charges or fees. Everything is upfront and to the point. Exactly what you need in a Handyman. I will be using and recommending Brent to anyone I know. Trust me, this is the guy to go to.

My experience:

Eric Powell and Ryka are professional in every way. All of my communications with them were returned promptly, and they gave great personal attention to my construction needs. The work I contracted was done perfectly and quickly, and at a very reasonable price. I am very pleased with this company and I highly recommend them for any construction project you may have.
