The Past

Our company embodies the American dream.

Gabriel Garcia came to the United States in 1987 following civil strife in his homeland of El Salvador. With the language barrier and other challenges that face most immigrants, securing employment was difficult, in spite of Gabriel’s work ethic and dedication. In 1992 with a handful of workers, he struck out on his own in Prairieville, Louisiana and grossed $60,000 that year.

By putting his customers first and offering consistent, high-quality installation, Gabriel’s company grew rapidly at 30% per year over the next four years. By 1996 the company was at the point that professional management was needed to administer operations. Over the next succeeding years, product and service offerings were expanded to serve more customers and fulfill more roofing needs. A reroof and sheet metal division were added, and a sister company focusing exclusively on commercial and public contracts was formed.

In August 2005 Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, hitting southeast Louisiana hardest of all. For the next two years, the Garcia Companies worked vigorously to help homeowners and businesses repair their homes and return to some sense of normalcy. Even after the cleanup from Katrina was finally finished, business was still higher than pre-Katrina levels - a testament to the companies’ commitment to provide consistent, high-quality service throughout this time.
