“We have worked with Ray Tomlinson and his team for more than three years now. They have renovated two kitchens for us, built a two story addition including a master bath and two fireplaces, replaced a roof, re-covered an entire house with new siding, provided carpentry, come running when we’ve had emergencies, and more. We not only trust them to do the best work anyone does, we like them a lot. We like to do a lot of our own designing, and Ray has been an invaluable source of ideas and guidance. Three years and three major projects in, we wouldn’t work with anyone else either for similar high-end renovations and construction, or for anything else.”
“Ray Tomlinson has done big jobs, small jobs, and those in-between for us. He is trustworthy, tidy, efficient, and dependable. We have enjoyed having him as our contractor for over 2 decades. We are pleased with his work and his staff. Not only does Ray have these qualities, but he is honest and treats his workmen as the professionals they are. We do not hesitate to recommend him and his team.”
“Tomlinson Builders did an extensive home renovation for us during the summer of 2015. This job included finishing a full basement (including adding a bathroom and moving a laundry area), renovating an existing bathroom and family room, replacing all windows, building a front dormer, a front entrance redesign and installation of a portico, new Hardee Plank siding, and a new roof. We could not be happier with the outcome. From the start, we knew we chose the right contractor for the job. Ray Tomlinson was on site squaring away details and sizing up the order in which the work should be completed from the get-go. His crew was always professional and easy to talk to – offering suggestions and solving any and all problems that they encountered. The sub-contractors Ray Tomlinson uses are first rate and worked in concert with each other without fail. The quality of their work is fantastic! Ray Tomlinson is a problem solver, an idea man, and an excellent communicator. My wife and I always knew Ray was just a phone call away to discuss our questions. He was a true partner in our extensive renovation, and we are extremely pleased to have had such a dedicated individual take care of our home. We highly recommend Tomlinson Builders without hesitation and look forward to having them take care of our future projects.”
“We have known and worked with the Tomlinson Family for more than twenty-five years on projects that range in size from replacing a deck, upgrading electrical, installing deck lighting, and building a new portico, to a major renovation and addition of a master bedroom, bath and walk-in closets plus the accompanying plumbing and HVAC Systems. Our home, located in Bucks County, dates from the 1830’s and for many contractors, can present perplexing problems in dealing with the type of construction (and materials) then in use. One advantage we have found with Tomlinson Building and Renovation is their ability to work with older homes, finding material and methods of construction that complement the history of the home while bringing all systems up to current standards. The Tomlinsons use quality materials, are very careful as they work in your home, stay on schedule as much as possible, and have a can-do spirit, all the while maintaining a sense of humor and a friendly environment. They also take time to explain ‘how’ they will do the work, options available, and recommendations as appropriate. All of these factors, we feel, have been extremely helpful and important in providing trust in their work, and knowing the job will be done correctly. We highly recommend Tomlinson Building and Renovation to future customers.”
“For more than 6 years I have been calling on Ray Tomlinson and his crew for everything from small to large projects and have never been disappointed! One of the many things that I love about working with them is no matter how big or small the project is, they are responsive, professional, honest and the work has always been reliable. Ray and his crew really take pride in what they do and it shows! Over the years they have helped us fix many problem areas of our home – leaking walls, drafty spaces, rotting porch wood, ripped up roof from hurricane damage, create and replace trim throughout our home, replaced carpeting with wonderful hardwood flooring, and they have also helped create wonderful spaces such as a new mud room with built-in cubbies, and are currently redoing our bathroom! In addition to great work – their prices are very competitive and they don’t nickel and dime you! I have referred many friends in the area and continue to do so without hesitation!”

“Tomlinson Building & Renovating has been managing various projects at our home for 15 years. Most recently, in 2013, they completely renovated our kitchen, laundry room and 2nd floor hall bath. Two rooms were combined to form one large kitchen, and the rooms had different floor and ceiling heights, so it required extreme attention to detail and meticulous installation of flooring & cabinetry. Their employees were hard working, reliable, neat , trustworthy, courteous and obviously take a great deal of pride in their work. Both the employees on site and the office staff were always helpful and patient with the many questions of such an involved project. I was impressed with the care taken to ensure dust was contained in the construction area, and protection of carpeting and flooring in non-construction areas. Also, a makeshift kitchen sink was set up in an adjoining room to minimize the disruption of the renovation, which was completed on schedule and within budget. Tomlinson overcame numerous challenges throughout the project with an outstanding end result.
The first project Tomlinson completed for us was in 2001. We added two rooms, replaced all the windows, roof, siding, and HVAC. This was a large project expertly managed by Tomlinson. They worked effectively with our architect and guided us through the many stages of construction. Although this project was 15 years ago, I still recall how impressed I was that the new window installations required only minimal interior cosmetic touch-ups. One never knows what to expect during a construction project, but I can assure you that Tomlinson takes the extra steps to ensure minimal disruption in your home.
Over the years, Tomlinson has repeatedly demonstrated extraordinary commitment to excellence. They address any construction issues immediately and proactively. Tomlinson earned our trust and respect during our first project with them in 2001, so we utilize them for both small and large projects on an ongoing basis. I can’t imagine maintaining my home without them! I highly recommend Tomlinson Building and Renovating.”
“We were very pleased with all aspects of our renovation which were done by Tomlinson Building and Renovation. Our project included a complete gutting and expansion of our kitchen, and a re-configuring of most of our first floor. The professionals working for, and recommended by Ray, were very talented, professional, and easy to talk to. That was an important part of our project. A few parts of our design had to be changed midstream a couple of times, and we worked well together to get the results we wanted. We planned well ahead to begin construction, and our timeline worked out great for Ray and for us. Overall, a very positive experience for us.”
“We have had a wonderful working relationship with Tomlinson Building & Renovating over the past few years, we have also had the pleasure of enjoying their craftsmanship in our home. They produce a high quality result that you will be thrilled to share with family and friends. In the office the staff are more than helpful with answering any questions you may have and make you feel at home as they guide you through the building process. Onsite the crew is clean, polite and courteous. The job is kept in an orderly fashion so you feel as comfortable as possible during construction. Needless to say you will be more than happy you have chosen this company for your project.”
“Tomlinson Building & Renovating has worked on 2 houses for us between 2007 – 2016. The first was a beautiful, 3-story house built originally in 1924 with a modern addition dating from a previous owner around 2002. When water leaked through a ceiling on the ground floor of the new addition in 2008, Tomlinson discovered that the 2nd floor outdoor porch on top of this addition had not been firmly tied (i.e. attached) to the wall of the house itself and had an inadequately sloped water drainage system, resulting in water draining through the wall and into the interior ceiling. Tomlinson completely rebuilt the balcony, with a new balcony floor and new water drainage design that solved the inside ceiling leak. What impressed us about this job was the attention to detail and knowledge that Ray Tomlinson and the workmen displayed, their fine craftsmanship, and ability to match the design features of the new outdoor porch to the original lines, style and beauty of the older part of the house.
We were sufficiently impressed by their work that later when we wished to lay new wooden flooring in the family room of our subsequent house in Solebury Township, PA, and to add crown moldings and repaint much of the first floor of this house, we asked Tomlinson to do the job. They also designed, built and installed a new wooden fireplace mantel in the family room that matched the design work of the crown moldings and the rest of the interior decor. Again, the workmanship was outstanding and the result more than pleasing to us.
Tomlinson Building has also done numerous small repair jobs around this second house, including replacing pieces of cedar siding damaged by woodpeckers. The company seems capable of handling numerous kinds of construction work always matching the result to the overall design and style of the building itself.
The workmen who have done these jobs for us have invariably been friendly, courteous, and fully professional. They worked responsibly and adhered to the agreed timelines. In many cases, they made suggestions to us that improved the outcome of our original request. All aspects of this company, including billing, responsiveness to office calls, and willingness to evaluate new issues were fully professional. Tomlinson personnel have become part of the community of friends and professional workmen who made living in Solebury Township special.”
