Local Experience, Timeless Stability, Generation-Driven
As a third-generation building company, we care about our work and the people we work with. Starting as a father-son carpentry team based in Sacramento, Riddio Construction was officially incorporated in 1985. Riddio Construction specialized in finish carpentry, and the artistry and craftsmanship that went into the work were passed down through generations.
Riddio Construction pivoted to specializing in door and window services in the 1990s. Riddio Door was born but continued to keep services in-house. All delivered products would be installed by employees. That way, the work would always be controlled and quality-maintained.
Soon, the company moved operations to Sparks, Nevada where we currently have a state-of-the-art showroom so contractors and builders can choose the doors and windows for their projects. While the products may have changed over the years, the service and craftsmanship have stayed the same.
Based in craft, committed to quality service.
Meet the Team
Jim Riddiough has worked in the construction industry for over 40 years. As a teen, he spread doors on jobsites for his father’s company. Later, the two formed a partnership, Riddio Construction Co. Inc., that served the greater Sacramento area until 2012. Jim bought out his father’s interest in 2001 and continued to grow the business, opening satellite offices in Visalia, CA and Reno, NV. After the recession of 2008, Jim scaled the business and eventually chose to focus solely on the Reno market.
Doing business as Riddio Door – Windows and More, the company serves the Reno, Sparks, and Tahoe markets. As President and CEO, Jim oversees all aspects of the business alongside General Manager, Lynn Freestone.
Jim is an expert in both product and installation of doors, windows, mouldings, and hardware. He is a skilled carpenter and perfectionistic builder whose art is constructing aesthetically harmonious homes with exceptional interior finishes.
In addition to overseeing Riddio Door, Jim is frequently asked to consult on custom home projects, working with general contractors and subcontractors to ensure all aspects of the project run smoothly. His reputation precedes him with decades of successful business relationships in the industry.
When Jim is not reviewing budgets or walking job sites, he can be found in the great outdoors, fishing, hunting, cycling, and skiing with friends and family. He is a commercial pilot and flight instructor and is in continuous pursuit of new interests and personal development. Jim is a student of music and guitar and hopes to one day front whichever rock band from the seventies needs a new lead guitarist!
Lynn stumbled upon the door business when he was just 19 years old. He started his career at Home Lumber where he cut casing, made deliveries, learned how to run a door machine, and assemble doors. His ambition and strong work ethic helped him move up to become the shop foreman where he learned blueprint takeoffs and how to estimate jobs.
After eight years at Home Lumber, Lynn launched the door department at Logan Lumber. After 15 years of spearheading the door efforts at Logan, the business was acquired by BMC West. Lynn continued with BMC West as the Location Manager for Door Operations.
In 2009, after BMC West exited Nevada, Lynn teamed up with Jim Riddiough and opened the
Sparks location of Riddio Door Windows and More. Together, they’ve grown the business over the past 11 years from three employees to 32 employees and have set the bar for door and millwork sales and installation in the Sparks / Reno area.
When he isn’t busy making sure Riddo runs smoothly, he can be found exploring the Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area with his friends and family.
