Are you looking for a building contractor who consistently exceeds your expectations? Look no further than Southern Tradition Builders. We had an old deck removed and a larger deck installed. Robert Riley's crews are very good at their respective trades. Any design changes we made during construction, they were able to implement without missing a beat. The crews were punctual & cleaned up the work site each day. While we were at it, we decided to add a Pergola - no problem! The design they came up with perfectly matches the deck. I don't think any of the boards were nailed on the deck or the pergola - all were screwed in or joined with carriage bolts. The attention to detail made us certain we picked the right builder. We will be calling Robert Riley & Company again for our next project
Southern Tradition Builders was contracted to replace old deck with a larger one & add a Pergola.

Our relationship with Robert Riley and Southern Tradition Builders began when I needed rotten siding repaired on our "Ingleside Cottage" I called around and Robert was recommended to me. He is a perfectionist, very professional and goes above and beyond. I have called Robert several times with different jobs, each one is done to perfection, he leaves the site clean and does the job right. I am now considering replacing my roof. I am confident that Southern Tradition Builders will give me a fair price and a quality job. Thank you Robert and Crew. C. Logue, Macon GA

We highly recommend Robert Riley and his crew at Southern Tradition Builders. They were recommended by a neighbor. We had tile work and several miscellaneous jobs done to our extreme satisfaction last year. We called them back recently when it was time for a roof and got the same excellent service, workmanship and professionalism. Robert did every job exactly as we wanted from the start: He sent us a bid via email as requested, was always there when he said he would be, and his crew is friendly, professional and very honest. It is hard to find honesty, value and great service in this day and time. We are glad we found Robert and Southern Tradition Builders. Mrs. Douglas Macon, GA

I needed several repairs on my home & called a friend for a recommendation.I am so glad he gave me Southern Tradition Builders. I called & received a phone call very quickly. This set a pattern of always responding quickly when I would call or needed to meet. The work was done quickly and to perfection. I added several repairs to the list, but there was never any problem. I was impressed with the professionalism with everyone associated with the company and will definitely use them again!I highly recommend this company!

If you want to hear the real story... o s o 49 at c ox dot net I can provide pictures where four gallons of paint were used on the cabinets....and of the grain showing when none was supposed to. And on and on and on........

The 4 gallons, 2 of the gallons were primer, were used to cover up the existing wood stained cabinets. The owner was to cheap to replace the cabinets , as advised , so he wanted new faces and to paint the existing cabinet frame. The use of 4 gallons were used when we went above and beyond to try to satisfy adding coats and spent money and labor to try to make outdated, worn out cabinets , look new again. I also have pictures of before, during, and after. Owner stated in final email that he would put another coat on the cabinets , in which he is complaining about the additional coats above, and opted out for paying the final amount owed. Another story of trying to get out of paying contractor, and bashing them online. Please review Bear31088 reviews and please see Southern Tradition Builders Reviews , plus check us out with the BBB
I recently used Southern Tradition Builders, Robert Riley and his crew, to remodel a bathroom. I was called out of town unexpectedly the week he planned to get started. I called Robert to reschedule and he stated that if I left him a key, he would take care of it. When I arrived home, to my surprise, not only was the bathroom perfect, he saw our new washing machine sitting in the garage and he also installed the washer at no extra cost! I have never met a more honest, courteous, and skillful builder and that says a lot.

We have used Robert and his crew for several jobs including a kitchen/bath remodel, numerous door replacements, new gutters, and exterior wood repair. We have always been pleased with the professionalism, quality, price, and speediness! On our recent kitchen remodel, he said it would be 7-10 days and he was right! By day 10, I was back in full operation mode in my kitchen. They had everything scheduled so well with the plumber, electrical, painter, cabinets, etc that we never had to wonder if the job wasn't going to be completed on time. We wouldn't go anywhere else for any of our home renovation and repair needs.

After seeing a remodeling job of a friend that used Southern Tradition Builders for their kitchen I called for my bathroom overhaul & couldn't be happier. Owner was patient with my questions & personal schedule; he even meet me at Lowes to look at different options. My parents plan to call in the fall for a garage addition.
