Glidewell Construction is a family owned business that has operated in Boone County since 1976. Owner Rod Glidewell gathered experience while working as a framing contractor. By 1980, he established Glidewell as a general contractor as it is today. For more than 34 years, our word-of-mouth reputation has been built on strong work ethics, superior framing knowledge, personal attention to details and close supervision of all our projects.

Glidewell Construction has a mission to provide the highest quality construction services to our clients, while enhancing our relationship with our subcontractors and suppliers. In doing so, it is our belief that we will grow in stature within the community, exceed our clients’ expectations, and provide a fulfilling environment in which to work. Since carpentry was vital to Rod’s experience, he maintains a staff of carpenters which provide framing and trim carpentry to our projects.


By having our own employees on the job daily, we can keep on top of projects much easier as our process evolves. We also maintain a full time office to deal with quotations, billings, lien waivers, etc. We strive to use high quality materials and subcontractors, while working hard to get the best value and products that stay in our client’s budgets.
