Richwood Contracting has long association with Kawartha Lakes area

A Cannington-based family business is hoping to grow its business in Kawartha Lakes.

Richwood Contracting’s Sue Ferguson says she and her husband, Rick Ferguson, “have vacationed with our kids in the Kawarthas for 20 years.”

She adds, “We had a trailer near Bobcaygeon for 17 years. Even after we sold the trailer, we kept our boat in the Kawarthas.”

The company’s main business is retractable screens, both motorized and manual. They’re custom-fitted on-site for customers. As an authorized dealer for Mirage Retractable Screens for 12 years, she says the company has gained a lot of experience and specialization.

Richwood also does doors and windows, although that’s less of a focus. “Rick has been in the construction trades for over 35 years, so when people started asking if we could do windows and doors, it was just a natural. We don’t want to compete with the big window companies. We just do them if someone asks.”

Installations of the screens or other products are always done by Rick and he travels all over Ontario to meet customers’ needs. To learn more, visit
