R.M. Lagace & Sons was included on a list of general contractors invited to bid on a residential construction project designed by my architectural firm. Very early on during the bidding process, it became clear that they had very carefully and thoroughly gone through all of the drawings as well as the existing house. The questions they raised were very thoughtful and provided a good indication of their extreme thoroughness. Their proposal to the owner was meticulous and complete. In addition to addressing all of the requirements of the bid, they also went above and beyond by recommending areas of potential cost savings. I would not hesitate to invite R.M. Lagace & Sons to bid on more projects in the future.

Our History

After a successful career in manufacturing and over a decade working for other builders doing renovations, Richard Lagace Sr. (Dick) was ready to start his own business.

In 1990, upon completing the construction of a new home for his brother in Farmington, CT, Dick launched his home building business.

With his sharp focus, Dick developed a strong reputation for quality work and competitive pricing that allowed him to build 3-4 homes per year in the 1990's and well into the 2000's.

Having worked alongside his Dad since he was 6 years old, Richard, Jr. (Rit), started out as an electrician but quickly moved into carpentry. Rit joined the company and developed the renovation and remodeling side of the business.

Together, they maintain their vision and reputation for top-tier service, workmanship and client satisfaction.
