As general contractors, we are familiar with Miami-Dade County’s Building Department, along with the procedures and documentation required to obtain permits and pass inspections for your project.
New Construction & Remodeling
We can handle the entire construction process from the structure, foundation and framing for new construction or an addition; to cabinetry, flooring, interior paint and all the finishing touches for an interior remodel.
We offer quality craftsmanship, competitive pricing, a safe worksite and timely completion of your next construction or remodeling project. Our commitment to customers is proven by the returning clients accounting for more than half of our business.

Westwood Lakes Plumber
Almost every interior remodeling project involving a kitchen or bathroom renovation will require a certified plumber. Rausa Builders Corp. acquired its Certified Plumbing Contractor license in 2017, allowing them to offer lower rates to their clients while also giving the company more control over scheduling on larger renovation projects where collaboration amongst multiple trades is crucial.
Our plumbers have extensive experience in kitchen and bath remodeling with modern features such as open concept kitchens, floating bathroom vanities and freestanding tubs. Our plumbing permit history with Miami-Dade County is available for review at the Building Department’s permit portal.

Distressed Property Rehab in Westwood Lakes
Our R.E.O. Team is familiar with procedures involving a distressed property rehabilitation and its preservation. Lenders with R.E.O. & foreclosed properties in Westwood Lakes need their assets in presentable conditions and free of violations before they can be placed back on the market.
Common issues found with these assets range from missing appliances and vandalized HVAC units, making the property unsalable to financing buyers; to building and code compliance violations resulting in liens and restrictions on transferring ownership. These issues can be accompanied by an all-around outdated or run-down property that is already difficult to sell.
We can handle the rehab from start to finish or anything in between, including interior paint, flooring replacement, kitchen/ bathroom upgrades, roof replacement and violation compliance.
Code Compliance & Building Violations
R.E.O. properties in Westwood Lakes are often acquired with code compliance violations or building violations and sometimes both. This can create a scary situation for property owners with threatening notices in the mail and fees that accrue daily.
We have the knowledge and resources to cure violations with the Miami-Dade County Building Department, resulting in a clean lien search and a smoother transfer of ownership.
Certificate of Use
Foreclosed properties in Westwood Lakes (an unincorporated neighborhood in Miami-Dade County) require a Certificate of Use by the title holder of the property, prior to sale. Rausa Builders Corp. has a dedicated team of licensed architects and engineers as well as a processing department ready to handle your Certificate of Use needs, including Miami-Dade County Ordinance # 08-133.
