Rick Wahlund – General Contractor

During the pandemic, we are open and happy to talk to you about your projects. We are preforming exterior work as well as interior work where all parties agree we can all stay safe. Please feel free to call or email.

PorchA native of Chicago’s North Shore, Rick Wahlund, a carpenter with 38 years experience, founded RMW Construction in 1991 to continue his Residential Remodeling work. Throughout his years as a General Contractor, Rick has worked on a large variety of homes. He specializes in additions to and remodeling of older homes, providing modern features and functions while preserving original, rich characters.


As a small business RMW Construction prides itself on sticking with a job once it starts, working hard to bring each job in on time and on budget. Because Rick does not run multiple crews on multiple sites, each of his clients get his full attention, knows that their project is his top priority and sees consistent progress. His clients repeatedly report that Rick and his team are great to have around, making the building process a very pleasant one.

As a General Contractor, Rick recognizes the importance of subcontractors in quality building and puts time and effort into forging strong relationships with the local plumbers, electricians and other tradesmen whom he considers the best. The result is a mutually beneficial, cooperative alliance of craftsmen who enjoy working together and who respect each other for their consistent, high quality products and services. They are all fully licensed and insured.
