Proudly serving Florida since 1989
Wednesday, February 26th, 2014 by Michael Sorrentino
With the onset of their 25th year in business, the folks at L.R.E. decided to throw a celebratory bash to commemorate their accomplishments. Since 1989, L.R.E. has helped thousands of Florida residents with their foundation and structural issues.
Having helped nearly 5,000 local homeowners fix their foundations, L.R.E. has become Florida’s largest and most reputable foundation contractor. Starting with only three team members, the company now employs 130 full-time workers, and recently expanded its service list to include construction and restoration with a focus on fire and water damage repair and mitigation.
L.R.E. Ground Services is an expert on sinkhole repair, and as of recently, this part of their company is in high demand. Out of the more than 4,500 completed jobs, 1,500 to 2,000 have been in the past 5 years, due to the unique conditions in Florida that give rise to many sinkholes. Some people have even nicknamed the state the sinkhole capital of the world, and L.R.E. has stepped up to the plate with their 80 additional workers.
The gala consisted of much more than just the company’s 130 team members; also in attendance were representatives from Hernando County’s Chamber of Commerce, in addition to local business partners and engineers. The local Christian radio station The JOY FM participated, and the Tampa Bay Lightning fan bus arrived to add some extra fun to the event. L.R.E.’s hometown of Brooksville also issued a proclamation recognizing the anniversary.
CEO Raymond Woolever was quoted at the party saying, “We are extremely humbled by the support and the opportunity to help nearly 5,000 property owners since 1989…We sincerely appreciate it and look forward to the next 25 years and more!”
