About Garcia Roofing
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 a point that professional management was needed to administer operations. Over the succeeding years, product and service offerings were expanded to serve more customers and fulfill more roofing needs throughout the Baton Rouge area. Both roof replacement and sheet metal divisions were added, as well as a sister company focusing exclusively on commercial contracts.
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 around Baton Rouge and all over South Louisiana 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 company's commitment to provide consistent, high-quality service at all times.
