Meet THE Builder
At Edgerton Contracting, the focus is on family.
Edgerton Contracting is a family-owned and operated general contractor outfit that designs and creates beautiful, high-quality custom homes the unique needs of the people they serve. Ricky Edgerton is the owner and lead contractor, and his daughter, Jenny, is a real estate agent with Liz Moore & Associates. Edgerton Contracting works closely with each family, from design to move-in and well after, staying in close communication every step of the way.
By the time Ricky warmly hands each family the keys to their dream home, he and Jenny are so close with their clients they feel like good friends, and they become part of the Edgerton Contracting family.
Edgerton Contracting was founded in Yorktown, Virginia 1994. Before getting his contractor’s license, Ricky designed submarines and aircraft carriers, but seldom got to see his designs once they were built. After building his own house,Ricky discovered his passion for home construction and the fulfillment he received from seeing his design come to life in a practical, meaningful way. It’s fitting that the inspiration to start the business was constructing his own family’s home, as family
is the cornerstone of Edgerton Contracting.
“I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to work in the office every day with daughter,” says Ricky. “She’s been with me in the business for 14 years.”
Jenny is a REALTOR® with Liz Moore & Associates and helps families find a lot if they need one, or find their way to Edgerton Contracting if they’re looking for something custom. Ricky corresponds with clients and subcontractors, and
personally coordinates and oversees each project. Our clients are in constant, direct communication with the owner himself, Ricky. “
When you work with Edgerton Contracting, you work directly with me,” says Ricky. “I take a lot of pride in how much one on-one time I spend with each client. I’m open and honest with each client every step of the way. I do what I say I’m going to do, when I say I’m going to do it.”
That direct, open line of communication extends to Edgerton's subcontractors too.“My subcontractors are the best in the business. We’ve been working together a long time and I trust the quality of their work and the integrity of their businesses.”
A lot of builders claim to be custom builders, but they like to build the same models over and over or do things their way –and not the customer’s way – but not at Edgerton. “I’m open to new ideas,” says Ricky. “I like to get outside the box and build a truly custom, unique-to-that-family, high quality home that they
help create. Often building a custom home is perceived as a headache, but Edgerton makes the process smooth and enjoyable for their clients
Ricky’s 24 years of experience enable him to anticipate potential problems and proactively incorporate solutions,keeping the job on schedule. “I’m very flexible,” says Ricky. “I’m happy to walk clients through the entire construction process from start to finish. They’re an integral part of the process. I like to join my clients
on site to discuss their suggestions, listen to their feedback, and answer any questions. My clients are always welcome, and I invite them to be as involved as they desire.”A designer with a creative mind, Ricky is always thinking about his projects and what suggestions he can make to enhance their home.
“I learn about my clients by listening to them,” says Ricky. “I listen to their desires, how they live from day to day, and how they plan to use each room. I listen to their concerns. I’m in such close communication with them that I really know them and their situation, and from that I’m able to make valuable suggestions to enhance their quality of living and functionality of their new home.”
Ricky and the team also help clients make decisions the details that make a difference. “I’m happy to provide input based on my experience., as well as make customers feel confident in their choices in the home by educating them about their options.
And with 24 years in business, Ricky and the team continue to focus on the families that will live in the homes they build. "Family is one of the most important things to me, in every aspect, from the personal family to my team members and my family of subcontractors and suppliers,” says Ricky. “It’s an honor to build a space that a family will live in. I take that honor and responsibility very seriously. I treat my clients like I treat my family, I make sure they’re given the best product at the best value possible. And at the end of the process, my clients are considered family."
