We’re built on a foundation of success.

Since we were founded, Wedgworth Construction has created some of the finest custom homes and residential communities in Birmingham, Alabama. In 2019, Patrick Gilbert decided to continue the Wedgworth legacy by purchasing the company from our founder, Mike Wedgworth.

Building homes and establishing relationships is what we do best. Here at Wedgworth, we will help you build your dream home from the ground up, walking you through every step of the process. We build custom homes on scattered lots, as well as in communities which include Overlook Crest, Woodridge, Surrey Oaks, Magnolia Ridge, Thornhill, Ivy Glenn, Wyngate and more.


Wedgworth Construction is not your typical construction company — we’re more than that. We’re passionate creatives equipped with the experience and expertise to plan, design and build fully customized homes. Whether you’re looking to build in a community or subdivision or find your own private lot, we’ll walk with you through the process from start to finish.

Patrick has been in the construction industry for over 17 years, working in various fields such as: trim carpentry, remodeling, and new home construction.

His hands-on approach to the building process is what sets him apart from others and sparks his desire to work closely with our Project Manager and Superintendent to deliver a product that surpasses client expectations.
