Chris and his highly professional & knowledgeable crew are “The Best” in all aspects of any homeowners needs.  Chris is very involved in projects, even small fixes!  Chris always answers his cell, or if unavailable, returns your call or sends an email.  He is “On Top” of all his projects.  We couldn’t be happier with Rolling River!  Keep on “Rolling” Chris….We’ll be calling again!

We highly recommend Chris O’Rourke and his company, Rolling River Building Services for any job, big or small.  We initially hired Chris a few years ago for a deck staining job.  We were so impressed, not only with the quality and timeliness of his work, but also his genuine desire to make sure we were completely informed and satisfied.  Needless to say, we have benefitted from Chris’ expertise on a number of jobs since.  Chris and his company should be in your contact list, and your “go-to” contact for all Home Improvement projects.

The estimate for the work we needed to have done was completed in an accurate and timely manner.  Chris took the time to answer all of our questions and made suggestions that would be most cost effective for us.  His craftsmanship, skills, and expertise were most evident in the quality of work completed both inside and outside of our home.  He and his crew demonstrated care for our home while completing their work and left it in excellent condition after each day’s work by cleaning their work area.   We will definitely utilize his services for our future “handyman and carpentry” needs.

We cannot say enough positive comments about Rolling River Building Services.  Owner, Chris O’Rourke, was very prompt in scheduling the installation of the first dishwasher that our older home has seen.  Everyone involved in this project was extremely friendly.  In addition to this, they all had our best interests at heart.  During the installation, it was discovered that some of our plumbing and electrical work needed to be replaced for safety reasons.  Everyone took the time to thoroughly explain why it was critical to make the improvements.  We sensed their genuine concern for our safety and thus trusted their judgement.  We are excited about planning our future home improvements with Rolling River Building Services.

Chris handled the difficult jobs that other contractors shied away from. In fact, some folks wouldn’t even call me back upon learning that the jobs were small and unusual.  Chris made the complicated seem easy, and his prices are fair and reasonable; the work was top notch quality!

Chris installed new window wells and did a very friendly and profesional job.  I have requested estimates for further work.  I recommend Rolling River to others.

Chris – Thanks for the great job you did on our deck! We’ll keep you in mind on future projects.

Chris O’Rourke is my own Mike Holmes.  Solid, reliable, and doing the job right.  And, unfortunately, there has been alot to do.  I’ve my own episode of “Holmes on Homes” going on here.  I’m grateful that I lucked onto a good contractor.  As most people who need work done can attest, finding someone you can trust is oft times impossible.  Chris is not allowed to move out of town or die until after I do.

After seeing what a great job Rolling River Building Services did for us on small jobs, we decided to do a big job with them.  Their workmanship was great, and we were informed and consulted every step of the way!

 Diane and Stacie O’Dell, 2876 Illinois Ave (new deck, insulation, other work)


We would completely and confidently recommend Rolling River Building Services for any construction needs.  We found Chris to be very professional to deal with from the beginning of our project through completion.  There were no surprises and the end result exceeded our expectations.  We felt that he worked on our home with as much pride as he would his own.  If you are interested in quality work at a fair price, Rolling River Building Services would be a great choice.

Kelly & Sharon Myers, 3280 St. Anne Drive (new deck)


I am completely satisfied with the wonderful job that Rolling River Building Services provided at my home following a water damage loss.  My leaking toilet tank caused damage beyond what was visible, and Chris’ expertise not only found the extent of the water penetration, but his experience with insurance claims provided a easy and hassle-free claim with my insurance company!  The repairs are OUTSTANDING!  I have had him back since to perform other work.
