The first project Rich worked on for me was a complete kitchen remodel over 7 years ago. It was a complicated and extensive job and Rich proved himself to be an organized, detail oriented and thoroughly professional contractor. He was always punctual and extremely conscientious about protecting my home and my personal belongings from damage. He was a "hands on" manager and did not hesitate to grab a hammer if necessary. He kept a close watch on his subcontractors and proved himself to be a creative problem solver. He has been my "go to" guy for all contracting projects, large or small, for the last 7 years. I highly recommend Rich (or McGowan & Associates).
Rich McGowan is a man of great integrity and honesty. He started the remodeling work on my home in 1995. Since then, he has remodeled my entire house, plus adding on a very large four season sunroom and a screen porch.
My husband and I were particularly impressed with his ability to work with our architect to represent the owner’s interest. Rich worked through all issues in a timely manner and kept the costs within budget. Considering the size of our projects, it would have been impossible for us to coordinate all details without Rich’s expertise.
Rich is extremely detail oriented and listens to the client. He oversees every project thoroughly from beginning to end. I have been working with Rich for eighteen years and would not consider using any other contractor. Rich continues to maintain all construction aspects of my home. I highly recommend him.
Our experience with Rich McGowan was a great one! We hired Rich to correct the work of a previous contractor and to handle additional finish work in our home. His work is precise and his attitude positive. We look forward to working with him again on our future projects!

I have worked with Rich McGowan for the past 20 years; he has done major projects as well as smaller fixes in my houses in Newton, Sudbury and most recently in the South End. His prices are fair, his work is excellent, and most important, he is completely committed to satisfying his customers. When issues come up on a project, as they inevitably do, he addresses them directly and quickly with the client and will do whatever it takes to resolve them. The best testimonial I can give is that I keep going back to Rich for any work I need done because of his honesty, competence, reliability and attention to my needs as a customer.
