Testimonials

Since we’ve had some time to live in our new space I must say I am still overly impressed with the craftsmanship, detail, design and layout. Brian and Mike plus all the trades did a fabulous job! I must admit I miss Brian being around. He’s exceptional.

We are so happy with the final product. Dillon loves his room as he reminds us it’s the biggest and he has his own fireplace. Hey that’s ok. We have incredible master bath and walk in closet. The kitchen facelift looks great and will easily extend the life for years to come. Thank you both for an outstanding job! Looking forward to the next project!!

Sincerely,
~ Henry

The porch looks great and we are super pleased with the job that David did! Please pass along our gratitude to him. He was a pleasure to work with. Always on time, friendly, and a great communicator. Even called one time to let me know he was running late. You can tell him that our youngest son, who enjoyed watching him work, misses having him around in the mornings! : ) We have recommended Riggs to everyone who asks about our porch and we wouldn’t hesitate to use your company again in the future!

Sincerely,
~ Erin Guenther

I just wanted to say thank you for your time and help in our latest home issue. I had to deal with some bad customer service yesterday. This reminded me how lucky we are to be dealing with honest and true service minded company.

Thanks for all of your help!

Bill and Amie,

As our house enters its last phase of construction, I just wanted to say how much we have enjoyed working with you and your team. I have been in the construction industry for 15 years and have seen some good contractors and really bad ones. I would rank you and your team among the best that I have worked with.

There are a few things I look for in a good job site superintendent. These are cleanliness, ability to multitask, craftsmanship, and smart use of materials. Doyle does all that and more. He really impressed me when he gave up his time off, after thanksgiving, to come in and finish a few item to keep on schedule. Also, Doyle has made sure the existing house was protected before the sub contractors come in to do work, the following day.

Bill and Brett have been more then patient with ALL of my e mails and questions. Moreover, I was impressed when Brett had printed out the diagrams, of where we wanted to add outlets, before the electrical walk through especially since I had just sent him them on the Sunday before an early morning Monday meeting.

Amy and I had fun going shopping with Amie and work with her to pick out all the finishes. A day that Amy was dreading, just flew by.

This project could have been a lot of headaches had you and your team not been on the ball.

Also the boys have loved watching the construction. They knew if they heard the workers in the morning that it was time to go to school. Riggs workers and the subs were all very nice and accommodating when the boys were home sick. Several times the electrical subs checked to make sure it was okay to do work in the existing interior while the boys were there.

We would like to wish your staff a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.

Brett, Amie & Brian –

I’m a bit slow, but truly mean this, I think of (and thank) each of you often whenever I’m home for the various “things” you have done for us at SCT……the shower in the master bath, the gorgeous counter tops in the kitchen, the windows, the LIGHTS in the garage and many, many more things too numerous to mention. I was determined to write tonight, have been meaning to do this “thank you” for way too long.

Simply said: thank you.

~ Nance Frost

I am not just enjoying my space, I am LOVING my new space! I told Brian this morning: I don’t know which I am more excited about – the new bathroom or the laundry area. It is SO NICE to have the laundry area not just on the main floor but right next to our bedroom as well. I don’t know if you all realize it or not, but one reason that my parents had to move out of this house was because it was too hard on my mom’s knees (arthritis) to go up and down the stairs. I am thinking that moving the laundry up on the main floor has bought us a few more good years in our home.

Thanks for the info about cleaning the new surfaces. We will also be sealing the tile grout as soon as we can get to it.

I want to take this opportunity to commend both Brett and Brian on their work. They have both been outstanding on this project. Their communication with us has been excellent; they both listen well to our wishes and our questions. If they could not give us an answer right away, they would find out the information and get back with us. They are both very professional and pleasant to have in our home. I always felt confident in their knowledge, and I knew that even if their were glitches along the way – and there weren’t hardly any – Brett or Brian would follow-through and update me. I hope that somehow they come to know how good they are at what they do.

~ Emily Kuttenkuler

We have worked with Riggs since 1986 and would never consider another contractor for work in our home. They have helped us transform an ordinary brick bungalow into a light, bright home with great open spaces and interesting features. Top to bottom, inside and out, we have more than benefited from the work of the Riggs team. The kitchen, the great room, three bathrooms, a gorgeous master suite, a completely finished basement and, most recently, the facade and exterior of our home–all are beautifully livable due to Amie and the Riggs crew! We would recommend them to anyone who needs work done on their home.

~ Sheldon and Leslie Weinstein

I want to thank Bill, and let him know how much I appreciated his steady, quiet presence and his help in the little decisions that arose as we proceeded it deserves before and after pics.

Riggs Construction does it again! Thank you, too, for hiring such fine workman who do exemplary work!

Bill & Riggs Team,
We cannot express in words how happy we are with the remodel project on our home. You three, and the entire company, have been absolutely wonderful to work with and we feel very LUCKY to have you working in our home. We are so grateful for all of your support, advice, and expertise. I don’t know if all of your clients feel this way, I’m sure they do, but we just feel like you have our best interest at heart and are really looking out for us. We know you have gone above and beyond what your normal construction might be…for all of our hiccups, like dealing with the bank and all of our questions and concerns along the way. Tom and I have had peace of mind this whole time because we know we made the right decision by hiring Riggs and we truly thank you for your HARD WORK!!!!

I think Tom mentioned to you Bill, and it is so true, we tell everyone we know how great your company is to work with. You guys have done exceptional work and we think every penny paid to Riggs is well deserved…despite Tom’s jokes! Your work is phenomenal in every aspect and down to the smallest details. We appreciate all of you and your efforts this past year!

Thank you for everything and we are so excited to move back home…thank you for giving us our home to move back to!!!!

~ Pam and Family

Brett and Bill,
I want to tell you both again how pleased we are with all the work your company has done for us and how much we appreciate the professional way in which your company is run. We were thrilled to finally have a company that performed as promised, showed up on time with polite and competent people, respected our property, worked until the project was complete, cleaned up thoroughly, and had excellent paperwork. I can see now why your company receives so much praise. Your company is going to be our choice whenever we need home improvements!

Thank you,
~ Jane and Jeff Hogg

They were great. They had seven to fifteen people at a time working here in my house. They did something in four months that other companies would have taken a year to do. They were great, they answered my questions, and if they didn’t know the answer, they went and got the answer for me. Everyone who worked here was professional, courteous, and, well, it was quite amazing.

~ Steve & Carol Jonak

We are proud to be a part of the Riggs Construction Team! All of our men appreciate the degree of professionalism shown daily by everyone in your wonderful company! In fact, the notice your guys provide in scheduling a job is superior to any other general contractor we have worked with. Furthermore, the finished job truly displays the abundant talent and skill regularly produced by the entire Riggs team. Our men notice and appreciate the satisfaction of working with a similar client focused company.

Thank you for the opportunity to do your work. Thank you for the confidence you have in us. Please realize we will strive to earn your confidence on every single job we do as if it were the first.

Your Plumbers,

I have noticed for a long time in the past that your construction sites are always neat, tidy, and clean. I drive past your current job in the 1400 block of Dougherty Ferry frequently and have commented to my family about it and decided it was time to tell the person responsible. Thank you!! I wish I could give lessons to other builders.

~ Sandy Stokes, Kirkwood

They do unbelievable work and all go the extra mile!

~ Deborah Becher

Thank you very much for the great job you did on our house. We really appreciate your care and thoughtfulness over the past two months and how you made what could have been a very painful experience into one that was not so bad. And we love how it all turned out! Casey will miss running up to see you every morning to get pets.

~ Barbara Feiner

Dear Becky, Jamie, Brett & Todd,
It was great working with you and the people who helped with our project. We love it! Thanks also for the goody basket- the ÒMr. RiggsÓ wine was a great touch! Take care and weÕll look forward to seeing you again soon sometime.

~ Bob & Cindy Hoffman

Success is born from Honesty, Integrity, Trust and the Commitment to accomplish a goal. You listened to my dream and together we made it happen. I am thrilled with the project! Everyday when I left for work I had complete satisfaction in knowing my home would be well taken care of and upon my return I could see the progress made. Thank you very much for a job well done.

~ Pam Hoffman

We couldn’t believe there were people like you in the world who are so honest and do exactly what they say they will!

~ Jane & Larry Kleppinger

The work is always completely and professionally done. Workers are on time and pleasant, and I love knowing how you stand behind your work.

~ Lenore Bierbaum

It would appear that your company could give Bob Villa some competition. Really, we appreciate the fine work that Bob does.

~ Dick and Kathy Drummond

I am very happy and pleased with my new cabinets and the work performed by Becky and Todd. In my opinion both Becky and Todd are huge assets to your organization.

~ Pat Larson

First, I would like to compliment your company on a job well done. Your people are exceptional. From the office folks to the field workers everyone was polite, smart, hard working and did a great job for us. Bob and Brian did great work and your project manager, Dan, was the glue that kept the job together. He is a very special person who takes personal pride in making sure that every detail was to our liking. He did an unbelievable job and should be commended.

~ Mike and Donna Behan

Thank you so much for making this project painless. It’s such a relief to work with real professionals. I can hardly wait to see the finished product and look forward to the next.

~ Laura Wehrsten

I wanted to thank you. I am so excited about the bathroom, and am looking forward to the elevations, and other shopping trips for tile and stone. Now that I can see it, I am ready to throw the old stuff away, and put the new bathroom in. I am positively vibrating with enthusiasm!

~ Paulette Carr

We are extremely pleased with the work your company performed on our extension and kitchen remodeling and have already passed your name to other people. The whole process from our initial contact with you went extremely smoothly. Dan’s attention to detail and keeping us informed of progress was exceptional.
The word expressed by visitors when they first see the finished product is “WOW”. Thank you for transforming our home to a “WOW”.

~ Paulette Carr

Your whole company was very responsive to any questions and concerns, very polite and you did exactly what you said you would!

~ Andrew and Myra Peskin

We were pleasantly surprised at how well everything went and how nice all of you are. Your high standards and skilled work have created a beautiful space that we will enjoy for a long time. I’ll miss all my new friends!

~ Gene & Elizabeth Young

Riggs keeps the homeowner up-to-date with progress meetings, has excellent subcontractors, excellent protection of property and furniture, completed the project on time and the expertise of Riggs employees was impressive.

~ Gil Kleinknecht

We were very pleased with the inside and outside carpenters (rough and finish). Because Gil could be classified as a perfectionist, having the best carpenters in eastern Missouri was important. You may use our name as an example of quality work at any time.

~ Pat Kleinknecht

Julia and I were extremely pleased and wanted to thank your team (Steve, Bill and Shawn) for all the time and care they put into the job. You listened to our concerns, replied promptly to our questions and kept us “in the loop” concerning deliveries and scheduling. It was precisely that courtesy, timeliness and attention to detail that set you apart from the others. We look forward to working with you again.

~ Tom Jordan & Julia Walsh

We were very pleased and I have alreadyrecommended Riggs to others. It was very difficult, I’m sure to have us in and out of town and I appreciate your diligence. Everyone was great to work with, especially Dan. My favorite part about your company is that you did the worrying for us!

~ Gary and Phyllis Traub

I want to thank you folks for the wonderful job you did on our addition. It turned out better than we expected. The people you employ and the sub-contractors were very courteous, staying out of our way when possible, making much less of a mess than I thought they would. In a word, professional.

~ John and Ruth Knoll

Thank you so much for all your hard work in making our room addition so beautiful. Your expertise, professionalism and friendliness made this so much easier for us as a family.

~ Bruce and Cheryl Elder

Just a note to tell you how satisfied I am with the job done at my home by Brett and Brian. Those two are excellent carpenters. They also are neat and courteous – you have two valuable employees in them.

~ Jerry LaCroix

You were always responsive in a professional, but happy way. Keep up the personal and friendly way of doing business. We found you to be honest and fair in all your dealings with us. Special thanks to Brett, Amie, Becky and Chris for your patience and understanding of our special needs!
