Meet The Builder


Rutledge Builders, a family-owned Northwest Louisiana custom home builder, has built a strong reputation on the quality and efficiency of our homes and the impression made in the lives of our customers.  A Rutledge custom built home turns dreams into reality.  Shreveport native John Rutledge, owner/builder with more than 20 years of experience, conducts business with a very hands-on approach.  This translates to on-site daily visits, thorough and frequent interaction with subcontractors which improves communication and guarantees optimum results!   John meets extensively with customers before breaking ground to ensure that they have a clear vision of their home from the start.  Our experience brings innovative details to each custom home executed through beautiful workmanship.  What if you would rather renovate your existing home?  John’s remodeling experience can transform a home. Our long standing relationships with subcontractors, and suppliers and John's planning and care, allow us to finish each home efficiently and in a timely manner.  John focuses on ample pre-construction planning and diligent management of the workflow to avoid unnecessary delays.  Of course, this doesn't preclude making changes along the way, and in anticipation we remain accessible at all times.  We operate throughout Northwest Louisiana and Northeast Texas.  We have built and remodeled homes in Shreveport, Bossier City, Benton, Coushatta, Stonewall, and Plain Dealing, Louisiana as well as Center and Karnack, Texas.
