Ridgestone construction, llc

Chris Majewski, founder and owner of Ridgestone Construction LLC, grew up in Cary, North Carolina, attended Apex Middle School and Apex High School, and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a B.S. degree in business marketing.

At the age of 15, Majewski worked as a carpenter for a Cary framing crew, and that experience would prove to be the starting point of a lifelong passion for homebuilding. After college, he went on to work for a North Carolina Caterpillar dealership and eventually, a Raleigh-based commercial general contractor. While in his late 20s, Majewski decided to build his first home and personal residence. The experience was rewarding for him, motivating him to sell the home and build his next house.

From then on, there wasn’t much keeping Majewski from following his passion for building homes. He became a licensed general contractor in North Carolina. After earning his residential and commercial general contractors’ licenses, he increased his credentials to become an unlimited general contractor, allowing him to take on any size project.
