• Company History

  • Richard Spurgeon began his career under his father back in 1976. His father was a general contractor who traveled around the country building 200 foot tall smoke stacks after learning the masonry trade from a Irish brick layer that moved to America to make a better life. When his father was building homes and buildings in central Louisiana Richard was paid to help. 

    In 1978 Richard started his own company Richard Spurgeon Brick. Back then a brick layer made 10-12 dollars an hour and used many of the same basic tools that are used today. For over 39 years Richard has been laying brick for commercial and residential customers. He has worked for large companies such as Proctor and Gamble, and International Paper. 

    He runs a crew that ranges from 8 to 22 men depending on the work load and the size of the job. Some of the crew have been with him for more than 10 years. As you look around the site you will see the range of work Richard and his crew have completed. Everything from churches and libraries to outdoor kitchens and swimming pools.
