We will conduct our business honestly and with the highest ethical standards.
We will treat our customers as well as our vendors and subcontractors fairly. We will treat them in the same manner we would want to be treated.
We understand that construction services are a large investment for our clients. We will endeavor to provide good service and a quality product in accordance with the client’s investment.
We all do better when we do it together. We will work together as a team, helping each other as needed. We will recognize individual accomplishment, but always realize that no one can do it alone.
Life is too short not to enjoy whatever you do. We understand that sometimes work can be routine and unpleasant, but we will work to have fun when we can, celebrate our successes, and learn from our mistakes, not dwell on them.
We value profitability, but not at the price of any of our other values. We will work to provide a reasonable return for the stockholders and employees of the company.
The Stevenson Road Covered Bridge is Righter's 51st Covered Bridge project and it is one that makes us very proud! During the ribbon cutting ceremony, this bridge received an Ohio History Connection Historcial Marker. The Stevenson Road Covered Bridge is 96 feet in span over Massie’s Creek and is the second Smith Truss restored by the county in the last couple of years. There are very few Smith Trusses left in the country and Greene County is blessed with two, with the other being a 136-foot span on Engle Mill Road, which is another bridge we completed in 2013.
Based upon previous experience and Righter’s reputation, Urban Five Construction contracted The Righter Company’s Piling & Shoring Services division to design and construct a temporary earth retention system for a new apartment building on Long Street in Columbus, Ohio.
The Righter Company was hired to restore one of Clermont County’s most beloved landmarks, the barn-red Stonelick-Williams Corner Covered Bridge. This 120 year-old, 140-foot long bridge is the only surviving covered bridge in Clermont County. This bridge was a 2015 Preservation Award winner with the Cincinnati Preservation Association!
In the early winter of 2015, the City of Columbus contracted with The Righter Company for a complex and public-sensitive project a that had been the subject of several news reports. A very deep storm sewer, built in the 1970s, had failed, and caused a large sink hole in a residential area on Whirlwind Drive.
On October 1, 2015 the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Alum Creek Trail Airport Drive project was held at the Sycamore Bottoms Bridge location. This recently finished Righter project is the last 1.25 mile section to complete the 22 mile Alum Creek Bike Trail.

What people are saying
The Righter crew I am working with has a plan and executes it. They are helpful and they don’t run me all over the site. Righter is a real pleasure to work with and I hope to work with them again on more projects in the future.
Electrical Subcontractor - Owner
The Righter Company should be commended on the excellent job they did in constructing this show piece bridge. Their craftsmanship, work methods and attention to detail has resulted in a new modern structure that represents the character and detailing of the original bridge.
Bridge Design Consultant - Design Engineer
The Righter Company tackled a very difficult job; the type that scared other contractors away. We worked well together during the job. I really became comfortable with their integrity.
