CM Ragusa Builders 


Stress-free is not often a term few builders can boast of a singular focus on custom renovations like owner Christopher Ragusa. He owns his own millwork facility, for one, crafting everything from molding to cabinetry from raw lumber rather than using prefab. In fact, Ragusa is proud to say he’s never built the same thing twice. Many of the company’s projects involve multiple unique aspects, to take advantage of views and homeowner desires for more exotic woods. Success for Ragusa is in the details—the company spends plenty of time in preconstruction guiding clients through permit issues, choosing architects, and detailing budgets.
