Family Owned & Operated

Our Story

     Introducing Richie Texas, our newest construction company established by Tommy Richie and family in 2017. Richie Texas is a rebranding of our existing company, which has been in operation since 1987.
The story began with Gerald Richie Construction, where Tommy grew up framing homes with his dad. He learned to read plans and frame houses at an early age, while honing his carpentry skills and managing framing crews. Then in 1984 Tommy and Janis got married and built their first home together. Two years later they had a son, Brandon, the first of their five children. And just a few months later in April of 1987, they started their first company- Richie Construction. Over the next twelve years, they would have four more children (Brooke, Bridget, Christian, and Chaz) in that same sixteen hundred square foot house.
     By 1998 we had outgrown our first house, so we bought land in Midlothian and began building custom homes, including our own. Richie Construction was primarily a residential framing company, framing as many as 550 homes per year at its peak. But with the growing labor issues, we decided to change our focus and concentrate on outdoor structures. With our framing expertise and design-build background, we understand and know how to design patio covers and additions to look as though they were built as part of the original structure, instead of an afterthought.
     Now, 30 years later, Richie Construction will become Richie Texas. We want to rebrand our company from being a framing company into our Family business, Richie Texas, “The source for outdoor structures and additions”. We will partner with our children, making them part owners in Richie Texas. I’m sure you’ve heard it said, ‘No one cares for your business like you do, well it’s The Richie Family business, we all care. And we look forward to partnering with your family on your next construction project!”
     Backed by years of experience, industry knowledge and with integrity, quality, and efficiency at the core, we specialize in building patio covers and outdoor environments. Richie Texas is not just a business, it is a family working together, building a future and a legacy.
