Company demystifies building process

Laochra Construction Corp builds trust with customers

Laochra Construction Corp, owned and operated by Gerald Cote, a qathet region resident with extensive experience in construction, holds a commitment to quality, honesty and unparalleled customer service.

“It's not about the dollar value to me,” says Cote. “My motive in construction and my business is that every customer is happy, always, no matter what it takes.”

This principle is reflected in the company’s approach to charging fair prices while ensuring the delivery of high-quality work guaranteed to meet, if not exceed, expectations of clients.

Laochra offers a broad spectrum of services, catering to a wide range of needs from general contracting, foundation work, siding and finishing, to kitchen and bathroom renovations, new house builds and more.

Cote's mission is to assist those unfamiliar with the construction process, providing guidance, expertise and the necessary trades to bring any project to fruition. His team of eight highly skilled and motivated individuals, including journeyman carpenters, are all committed to the company's vision of quality work and customer satisfaction.

“We work really, really hard,” says Cote. “It's just about doing good work for people and making it happen as smoothly and easily as possible.”

What sets Laochra apart is its unwavering commitment to communication and a stress-free process for customers, he adds.

Cote prides himself on being available for his clients, addressing concerns and making adjustments as needed to ensure they have peace of mind. This dedication to transparency and client support is a direct response to the common grievances faced by homeowners in dealing with construction companies, such as uncompleted jobs and mismanaged deposits.

“I would rather lose money and make sure the customer is happy, and that the job is done right,” explains Cote.

He also emphasizes the importance of educating clients, demystifying the construction process and presenting clear and detailed breakdowns of costs, ensuring they are not overcharged for materials. This approach not only saves clients money but also fosters a relationship built on trust and integrity.

“It doesn't need to be complicated,” he adds. “It's a fairly straightforward thing. I'm trying to make everything as easy as possible for them.”

Laochra is also making a positive impact on the local community by hiring and working with local talent, contributing to the economic well-being of the qathet region. Cote's vision extends beyond the immediate future, aiming to serve the community for the next 30 years, a testament to his dedication and commitment to his hometown.

As the construction company continues to grow and serve more clients, its core values of quality workmanship and customer satisfaction remain steadfast.

“We’re not just building homes and renovations,” says Cote. “We are building lasting relationships and trust within the community, ensuring that every client, from senior citizens to new homeowners, receives the care, respect and service they deserve.”
