April 15 has come and gone, and with it the deadline for mailing 2018 income taxes. If you’re a late filer this year, and planning to finance all or part of a home renovation with your tax refund, check out Rui Construction and Building Supply for great quality and rock-bottom prices.

“People are still coming in with their tax refunds to get estimates and quotes for their renovation projects,” said Jon Xie, manager of Rui Building Supply. “Some clients use refund money to plan for their summer breaks, and while they’re taking vacations, we do their projects and they come back to brand-new kitchens and bathrooms.”

That’s a smart way to avoid the chaos and disruption of a renovation, especially in homes with large families and single bathrooms. And with Rui’s contracting services and building supply company as two arms of the same efficient company, it’s never been easier or more cost-effective to make those changes to your home you’ve always dreamed about.


“If you’re looking for renovation services, we can help you with design and give you a free estimate,” Xie said. “We also have package deals in which we put everything together for you so you don’t need to go all over the place shopping for your materials.”

Packages cover countertops, sinks, vanities, and more, he explained.

“We set pricing based on room size, and you can pick any materials you desire from our showroom from the selection that’s included in the package.”

As summer approaches, Oahu homeowners are eager to put those projects in motion.


“This time of year, we see a lot of bathroom renovations, like people changing from tubs to walk-in showers, with brand-new tile on the walls. That’s very common,” Xie said. “And a lot of folks expand their kitchens so they have bigger spaces to work with.”

Laundry room expansions and renovations are also increasingly popular in the islands.

No matter what you’re planning, it’s wise to investigate pricing options. Costs for kitchen renovations can range from roughly $10,000 to $50,000, and range from $3,000 to $35,000 for bathrooms.

Budget-conscious homeowners who want to get the most mileage out of their tax refunds are encouraged to check out Rui Construction & Building Supply, the one-stop shop on Sand Island Access Road.


Whether you’re a late filer with a DIY renovation project in the pipeline, or a homeowner anxious to avoid the chaos of a remodeling project, Rui can help.
