To whom it may concern,

My family and I met RTJ construction in April of 2013; after a broken pipe destroyed our home, while away on a short school break. We lost two bathrooms, the entire kitchen, dining room, and basement.  We reached out to our friends requesting a list of contractors whom they would refer, after contacting each one with our immediate need. RTJ construction came through for us above the rest.

It is with great pleasure we write this letter of recommendation for Rich Palmaccio and RTJ Construction. Richard Palmaccio is an extraordinary contractor whom takes great pride in his projects.  My family and I choose RTJ construction over several other contractors for a number of reasons and here are just a few.

Rich provided us with a credible detailed contract outlining, all work requirements construction safety code requirements in accordance with our local regulations. Richard met with our local building department and reviewed our loose in detail to help ensure urgency with the town permits. He also met with our insurance adjusters and provided each with detailed requirements and repair needs.

Rich immediately began dedicating time towards our restoration project. He worked with us through each phase of our project. Rich and his team of professionals helped us gather materials for each phase of our project quickly and within our budget. Rich was on site every day, ensuring our best interest and satisfaction as if it were his own home. If we had a concern or a change Rich made a point to listen and address each of our concerns and changes.

Rich understood our dire situation and the chaos of being displaced with a young family. Rich made it a point to be dependable, professional, understanding, and realistic, no matter the circumstances.

Lastly, we now love and enjoy our home more now than before. We are very pleased with our home and the wonderful experience RTJ construction provided to our family.

Building a loyal customer base –

Rich Palmaccio, general contractor of RTJ Construction LLC, has worked and lived in Bergen County for nearly two decades.

“I’ve lived in Paramus for over 20 years and enjoy the environment,” he said. “Paramus is very central to all of Bergen County, which makes things more attractive and easy to get around.”

Palmaccio has been working in construction for 17 years. He began his career doing simple jobs, then additions, until eventually taking on new construction. He’s licensed in new construction and home improvement.

“I always had a passion for building things and seeing the end result,” he said.

Palmaccio started RTJ Construction in 1999 with two partners who have since passed on.

“Besides becoming best friends, [we were] best partners, without one fight throughout the relationship,” he said. Before starting RTJ, Palmaccio worked with his father on projects such as wallpaper and vinyl flooring.

RTJ Construction’s specialties include new home construction, residential renovation, commercial construction and property maintenance.

Big and small renovations are the most common request RTJ receives. Kitchen additions and new home construction also make up a good portion of the business. Palmaccio added that interior and exterior mid-sized renovations are the current trend in Bergen County homes.

Loyalty, total quality and cost-effectiveness are some of the qualities that Palmaccio uses to define RTJ Construction.

“Every customer I’ve done business with is a very good referral and some are very good friends, as well,” he said.

Palmaccio also cites his professional record as part of his success.

“My record with the Better Business Bureau and Consumer Affairs of New Jersey is flawless and I’m always trying ways to make it better,” he said.

One of Palmaccio’s favorite aspects of the construction business is developing new relationships.

“The enjoyment of the client throughout the process, thanking me for all my hard work and dedication [is rewarding],” he said.

More than 80 percent of RTJ’s clients are repeat customers.

“I always love to work with people and try to do the right thing with their investment,” Palmaccio said.

Palmaccio’s favorite project to date was a New Jersey home with a variety of construction tasks. The residence had “many exceptional features” including batting cages in the basement, a custom outdoor grill area, and a stone masonry gas fireplace.

“I put myself on the job and know what’s going on from beginning to end,” he said. “I’m in communication with clients and work hand-in-hand with them so there are no gray areas or any confusion on the customer’s part.”

“Rich renovated our home in the summer of 2005.  Mr. Palmaccio transformed our home into a work of art. The work was done timely, neatly and efficiently by workers who were always eager to please. Nothing was too difficult or too complicated for Rich and his crew.  We ended up with the home of our dreams in record time and at a reasonable cost. We wouldn’t dream of calling anybody else for any future jobs no matter the size.”

Karen & Mike B., Paramus,  NJ

Service Responsibility

To our clients, we have a responsibility to provide a superior product and quality service.

To our team members, we have a responsibility to provide security and opportunity, and to those team members that make us successful … reward.

“When we decided to do a gut renovation on our Manhattan apartment, we interviewed several potential building contractors. We had heard horror stories about contractors who did poor quality work and/or ran way over budget.  We needed to find someone who could deliver high-quality work for the agreed-upon price.

We chose Richie from RTJ Construction because he was highly recommended by a family whose kitchen he had totally renovated.  Richie delivered everything he promised  — he stood by his estimates, provided quality work and was professional whenever he dealt with us or with our building’s personnel.  Thanks to him, we have a beautiful apartment. We would highly recommend him for any project, large or small.”

Maureen S., Manhattan, New York City

I have not run into a more honest, trustworthy and skilled construction professional.”
