When Justin was 16 years old he became a "grunt" for a local custom homebuilder. Shortly after graduating high school, through hard work and determination, he had dramatically increased his knowledge and expertise to the point that he was promoted to jobsite foreman, overseeing their concrete, framing, trimming, roofing and siding divisions. He was responsible for expediting all trade work from start to completion, from finalizing blueprints and obtaining building permits to making sure the tiniest details were in place for the new homeowners to move in, with ease.
In 2006, Justin had an opportunity to travel and put his expertise to work in the storm restoration industry, dealing with catastrophe claims. He was extremely effective, yet went on to obtain his adjusters license for a more thorough understanding of "the other half". With his experience and knowledge of construction, quickly he identified an industry that appeared to be lacking in "professionals" and "pride of workmanship". That's when he formed Ridgid Construction.
Justin says, "I was raised with integrity and compassion for those around me, those traits are key elements of this company and demanded from all who work for us. Our goal is to not only meet, but to exceed expectations and I'm proud to say, that's what we've been doing ever since!" Ridgid Construction has since helped thousands of customers with catastrophe and non-catastrophe restorations, residentially and commercially, while maintaining the reputation and ethics he began with. "No one job is more important than another, they're all just different," he says.
Justin’s favorite quote: "nothing worth doing is easy." Obviously, as you will find it stenciled on the walls of their offices. In Justin's free time, he enjoys traveling, fishing, camping, and hiking (he especially likes it when his family comes with!)
Located in downtown OKC, this 3 story, 4 building condo complex was severely damaged by large, wind driven hail. Tear off and replace standing seam metal roofing, gutters, & downspouts. Also replaced 2 flat roofs. See our Downtown OKC Condos Case Study for more details.
Concrete block coating was deteriorated, allowing water to penetrate through the walls creating leaks in multiple units. Coatings were scraped and pressure washed, prepped with Benjamin Moore Concrete Sealer, smoothed out and filled with Benjamin Moore High Block Filler, and finally coated with 2 coats of Benjamin Moore Elastomeric Low Lustre Coating.
Deteriorated wood siding was replaced with James Hardie fiber cement siding on the 3rd story firewalls on several buildings at this downtown OKC condominium complex to eliminate leaking problems. Call the experts at Ridgid Construction if you need a professional!
The framing around the 3rd story loft window were completely dry rotted, allowing water to run into the condominiums destroying their walls and ceilings. The location was over 7:12 pitched metal roofs making them extremely difficult to get to for normal maintenance. The framing around 16 windows was torn out and replaced, then covered with housewrap and finally finished with James Hardie fiber cement siding and painted.
Due to a hailstorm, Ridgid Construction and USAA insurance we're able to agree on a scope of loss that helped us give this customer's home a facelift. It really looks, and especially feels, brand new. Great choice of colors!
