History

We would be remiss to begin Pezzuco Construction’s history in 1987 when the company was launched, when in fact, the seedling and spirit of the company began years before that with the instruction from their father. From then on, brothers Richard and Ronald were never far from a new construction project.

 

We look forward to new challenges and endeavors in order to produce dwellings that make both our clients and ourselves proud, continuing the legacy that Joe Pezzuco, Sr. began with his sons.
