Our Story

The high quality craftsmanship of our projects is attributed to our attention to detail and excellent construction team. Our sub-contractors, many of whom have been with Rimmer Construction for over thirty-five years, have been carefully selected to reflect our superb values.

Ron Rimmer is the founder and president of Rimmer Construction. Ron holds both a BBA and MBA from the University of Southern California. Ron founded Rimmer Construction in 1980 shortly after moving his family to San Diego. What started as a predominantly speculative building company evolved into a custom home and remodeling construction business serving the greater San Diego area. This evolution took place through the gradual development and expansion of a trusted client and architect network. Over the past 37 years Rimmer Construction has successfully completed over 100 new construction and remodel projects.

Rimmer Construction Team

Randy Rimmer joined the family business in 1997 after graduating from UCSB with a BS in economics. Having learned all aspects of the construction business from value engineering to project management, Randy has gone on to become an invaluable member and now owner of the company.

Customers Trust Us

"Randy has selected a small group of truly gifted craftsmen to work with. We have hired Rimmer and his team of craftsmen for four major projects on both of our homes. We've been delighted with the end product."

- Dr. William Rastetter

"I can't say enough about the Rimmers. They really helped guide us through the whole process of building our home, and made the whole experience very enjoyable. They are established enough to have an excellent group of subcontractors that work for them, yet they are small enough to make me feel like I was getting very personal attention."

- Steve Salinger, M.D.

"We thoroughly enjoyed our home building experience with Ron. We were impressed with his integrity, ability to work with our budget and his accuracy on how long the project would take to complete. However what really stood out was that unlike many General Contractors, Ron was on site consistently making sure that everything was handled professionally and promptly."

- Stacy McCarthy

"It is with great pleasure that I recommend Rimmer Construction. Working with the Rimmers, over the past decade, has been an absolute delight in every respect! What sets Randy and Ron above the rest is their genuine honesty, superior communication skills, willingness to ask the right questions and their dedication to doing things correctly the first time."

- Maxwell Wuthrich AIA

"As the owner of a commercial construction company I thought about tackling my remodel project myself. However I soon realized that I needed someone who specializes in high-end residential construction, especially considering that the house has a historic designation. I definitely made the right move hiring Randy and Ron Rimmer."

- Matt Reno, CEO Reno Contracting, Inc
