Justin Ord is a Colorado-based general contractor and the owner of True North Builders LLC. We sat down with Justin to learn more about how he opened his business.

Justin Ord opened True North Builders LLC in July of 2019. His company specializes in new residential construction, remodeling, renovations, basement finishes, kitchen remodels, bath remodels, and home additions.

Justin tells us opening his own business has been a life-long dream. “I’ve always wanted to own my own business. I had been working in the industry for over 20 years and last year I acquired my Class C general contractor credentials, my mold abatement certification, and my lead renovation, restoration, and repair licenses. I decided that it was time to use my knowledge, experience, and credentials to start my own business.

“I wanted to use my skills and knowledge of the industry to bring high-quality and affordable professional services to my community. I wanted to build something here that I’m proud of. Being able to work with a client and watch a design come to life is really satisfying.”

But, as all business owners will understand, starting a business is anything but easy.

“Getting our name out there has been difficult so we have to put a lot of effort into advertising and capitalizing on word-of-mouth referrals.”

But Justin isn’t letting anything hold him back, and that’s advice he shares with other entrepreneurs. “Just stay committed and don’t give up.”

Even though starting a business has its challenges, Justin says CoverWallet helped make finding the right commercial insurance coverage easy. “CoverWallet got me a great deal on my policy, which has been really helpful, especially in this early stage. The whole process was simple and very convenient.”
