Family Owned and Operated

At LaPointe Construction Board Up service we are family owned and operated.  In fact, we are among the nearly 90% of businesses that are owned and operated by families in the United States.  These organizations range in size from two-person partnerships to Fortune 500 firms. These family owned businesses make up half of the nation’s employment and contribute to half of the country’s GNP.

Family businesses owe their presence and success to advantages that large corporations tend to not have.  Keep these benefits in mind when looking for a contractor for your next project!

Commitment to Quality

Family businesses have become synonymous with quality.  Businesses run by families often treat their customers and clients the way they would like to be treated.  They therefore take the time to get the job done right the first time.  Unsatisfactory service reflects poorly not only on the company, but on the family that runs it.  Because so much of their success hinges on quality work the owners or family businesses are invested in satisfying their customers in the name of the family.

Better Employee Retention

The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently found that most employees stay less than five years at their jobs.  On the other hand, those that work for family businesses tend to remain with the company for decades.  Family businesses tend to treat their employees if not a part of the family at least like humans.  Unfortunately for corporate employees they are often seen as only a number and are therefore easily replaced.  This leads to a high employee turnover rate, which can make it difficult for large corporate businesses to offer the kind of quality that is comparable to that offered by family businesses.  The employees with family owned and operated businesses ten to devote years if not decades, of their lives to the company, and as such allows those companies to offer unabated quality service that sustains an organization’s longevity.


Family businesses are often better suited to customizing their work based on customer or client needs.  These companies work tirelessly with their clients to respond to changing needs or requests.  In fact, these businesses often treat their customers as a part of the family.  Whatever they do they perform the service as if it were something of their own.  They also understand how valuable your time is and will not waste it by making you wait for them to arrive within a certain time frame like many other larger companies.  If they say they will be there at 10am, they’ll be there at 10am.  If they cannot make the appointment they have the courtesy to call you to arrange a different time.  Family owned businesses respect their clients and customers!
