Meet The Team
One thing we're grateful for at RHC are our hard-working employees--that's why we'd like to introduce members of our team that make it all possible.

Peter Tevs
Project Manager

Peter has been with RHC since 2004 and has become an integral part of the company. You'll most likely see him out on the job-site looking after all the small but important details that make your project run smoothly.

He enjoys photography, sightseeing and outdoor adventures on his spare time. On a much larger note, he and his wife are expecting their first child--it's a girl!

Congratulations Peter and thank you for your hard work. We appreciate what you do and are proud to have you on the team.

Ask the Builders
QUESTION: My carpets are ready to be replaced and now I'm considering hardwood floors. Are they worth it?

ANSWER: That's a tough question to answer. Even though plushy carpets are more comfortable and less expensive, there are a few drawbacks when comparing them to solid surfaces like wood. If properly maintained, hardwood floors will outlast carpet and are a more permanent option. Just check out some of the nicer Portland homes built in the early 1900's--some of them still have their original wood floors! Hardwood floors will also yield better indoor air quality as they're much easier to clean and less susceptible to staining & debris build-up. You can also consider pre-finished wood flooring to avoid all the dust involved in sanding on-site.

All that being said, bare wood can be a little too hard and cold for some people which is why many use rugs. Also, keep in mind that a wood floor project will be a little more intensive than replacing your carpets.

If you have a specific flooring or remodel question you'd like to ask please contact us!

All the best,
Red Hills Construction Team
