It all started in a garage.
Well, not exactly a garage - but a small, back-room office, where Louis Avallone Sr. dreamed of building something bigger than himself. Shortly after immigrating to the United States from Italy in 1964, Louis Sr. began working toward his own personal American Dream, bringing with him an unwavering determination and a strong belief in the power of hard, honest work.
After attending LSU in Baton Rouge, he began a career in the construction industry, first as an estimator and later founding his own business, where he has practiced those same principles for almost fifty years.
We could say a lot about what we do, and how we do it.
Yes, we are licensed with the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors. Yes, we are members of the Home Builders Association. Yes, we've been in business for almost forty years, with experienced, qualified technicians who have lots and lots of experience under their tool belts.
And yes, we provide continuing education and training so that our people are always growing, developing, and thriving, whether they're twenty-two or sixty-two. Many of our people have been with us for a decade or more - long enough to f...eel like family.
More important, though, is the why - the reason we're here, the reason we run our business the way we do. At the heart of our organization is a set of four core values - the ones we live and breathe every day:
1. Do What You Say You're Going To Do.
2. Be Considerate Of Others.
3. Do What Is Right.
4. Maintain a Positive Attitude.
This is what you can expect when you work with us. Each day we strive harder to do better - and to be better. We never take anything for granted. We think of our business as more than how we make a living - it's how we live our lives. We like to think we're a little bit different in that way.
We believe in hard work. We believe in integrity. We believe in real relationships with real people. We love what we do, and we love helping people. And whether you came to the United States from somewhere else, like Louis Sr., or whether you were born on American soil, we'll do our very best work for you. The fruited planes may be abundant, and the purple mountains may be majestic, but the true beauty of America - like in our organization - is in its people.
We'd be honored to work with you.
