The RAD Builders Process Sets us Apart


You convey your dream results and we explain how we’ll bring them to life.

Rick Darrough personally meets every home and business owner on-site. He sets expectations, and puts together realistic estimates. With a lifetime of experience, Rick knows what your project will cost, and will help you envision getting there.


We’ve spent decades cultivating relationships with Colorado’s best architects and designers.

RAD Builders strives to provide personalized solutions for each homeowner. Starting your project off on there right foot ensures a finished product that is truly a reflection of you. If you haven’t already been working with an architect, engineer, or designer, Rick’s relationships allow him to recommend a professional in tune with your vision.


Colorado’s booming housing market has created an influx of new tradespeople and contractors. Our trusted contractor relationships are longstanding. Each sub-contractor has been thoroughly vetted to be sure no corners are ever cut.

When it’s time to hand over the keys, Rick meets you himself to inspect every job, making sure your dream space is complete.


Meet Rick A. Darrough, the heart and soul of RAD Builders. Hailing from the east coast, Rick left his hometown of Ripley, WV at a young age for the sunny beaches of Florida. With great success in the paving and concrete industry, Rick was ready to grow. He traded in the sand for snow-capped mountains, and made the exciting journey to Colorado. The beauty of the state’s front range is enough to inspire any man, and soon thereafter, Rick set his sights on general contracting. In 1980 RAD Builders was born.

As time’s gone on, Rick’s family has grown as much as much as his business. When he’s not transforming a finger-painting foundation into a Michelangelo addition, he enjoys visiting with his daughters, Erica and Jade. He especially loves playing with his granddaughter, Lyla, and his grandson, Sam.

When given the time, Rick loves to get out of Dodge and travel – anywhere & everywhere. The British Virgin Islands hold a special place in his heart. He’s sailed there a number of times and returns semi-regularly after obtaining his captain’s license.
