I've been working in the concrete industry for nearly four decades. I started Rick Ogden Construction in 1977 in Temple, Texas, though my concrete life began in 1972 in Tampa, Florida. In 1980, I moved my company and my family back to Oklahoma, where I was originally from.
I've done all types of concrete work—residential, commercial, industrial repair—but over the last two decades I've spent more and more of my time doing decorative concrete. I still do all types of concrete, but my emphasis is mostly on stamping, staining, and, since 2004, building countertops and concrete furniture, such as tabletops, coffee tables, end tables, reception area tables…pretty much whatever people want that is unique and intriguing.
