About Us

Hello, my name is Chris Kuehn. My brother, Steve, joined me in 1985 to start Longridge Builders. Steve had worked with J. J. Brennan Construction and John Murray & Son, both firms specializing in heavy construction and site development. I had worked with The Building Company of Wilton, CT and Tolliver & Keene, also of Wilton, CT, two premier residential home builders in Connecticut. With our knowledge and experience, we knew we had much to offer homeowners in Fairfield and Litchfield Counties.

Our company specializes in residential remodeling, additions, and renovations. About ten percent of our business is with new home construction. We bring together the area's finest tradesmen and craftsmen to assure unsurpassed quality and attention to detail in every project we undertake. We accomplish this by our personal supervision of every aspect as the work progresses. You will find us laying out the start of the job, checking measurements and surveys, clearing trees and excavating the foundation, installing drainage and septic with our own heavy equipment, working with our carpenters as the framing progresses, cleaning up at the end of each day, building cabinets in our own wood shop, and installing trim. We are intimately involved in every step right through to the final landscaping and delivery of the Certificate of Occupancy. We are on the job every day, and this allows us to witness the progress which helps in our daily communication or weekly meeting with the client homeowner and architect. This approach has worked well and has led to our success as one of the finest builders in the area.

So if you are planning an addition or renovation to an existing home, or perhaps a new home, we can provide a cost estimate so you avoid being blind-sided during a later bidding process. Or if you need help with choosing a Designer or Architect, we can provide you with a list of names, some of whose work you will see featured in our portfolio. If you have a set of blueprints, give us a call. We would love to provide you with a fixed bid and timetable for your project.

Looking back over our 30 years in business, we are proud of the work we have done and the friendships we have made. We will continue to work hard and earn the trust and respect that has carried us to this point. We look forward to working with you.

-Chris and Steve
