Richard Pierce Builder was organized in 1979.  Richard Pierce, founder, is both a Journeyman Carpenter and Master Builder with nearly 40 years in construction.

The business began as a one man operation with Richard, fresh out of trade school using a room in his parents’ home as an office.  The business grew quickly with quality work, respect for customers’ and service to community generating referrals and repeat customers’.  Soon it was time for the business to move to a commercial dwelling.

The first shop was on Spruce Street in Stroudsburg where Richard gained valuable experience and increased company staffing as the company successfully completed project after project that brought new challenges and opportunities to learn.

By 1985 it was time to move again, to a place that afforded more space, a place where the business could establish roots and store the countless tools, heavy equipment and materials.  It was then that Richard moved the business to its present location in Snydersville, PA and incorporated in 1986 as Richard Pierce Builder, Inc.

RPBI as it is called, employs a team of skilled craftsmen which are an integral part of the company’s success.  RPBI insists on providing the highest quality product and has the utmost respect for its customers’ and their property.  It is a core value of the company and is evident in how company employees work, the cleanliness of their jobsites and product quality.

The company and its personnel take pride in their knowledge of building codes and processes and have excellent relationships with suppliers and building products manufactures.  Employees are continuously educated about OSHA safety requirements, building codes, construction techniques and proper product installation to insure the customers’ project is completed correctly.
