What People Are Saying

As a General Contractor in south Louisiana, it is rewarding when we get to use a subcontractor that genuinely cares about completing a job on time and maintaining the highest of quality. Edward J. Laperouse roofing is one of those rare contractors that I know we can trust to provide the utmost quality. They go above and beyond to make sure our clients are happy with the project. We have enjoyed having this exceptionally long working relationship and I would highly recommend Laperouse Roofing Contractors for any roofing project and repair work. Their team is very professional and committed to providing quality products and services.

Patrick Gary, Manager

Thompson Construction Co., Inc

We were extremely pleased with the renovation at Schaumburg Elementary and owe much of the success to the general contractor, Edward J. Laperouse Metal Works.


The project included everything from a new artificial play surface to interior repairs to an 84,000 sq. ft. standing seam metal roof over an existing metal roof.


Every aspect of the project was well coordinated, expertly managed, and skillfully supervised.  I recommend Edward J. Laperouse as a general contractor at every opportunity.

“Following one of last fall’s tropical storms, our facility sustained damage that required repair but also gave us an opportunity to address nagging water leak problems and provide a facelift to our aging office building.  I immediately reached out to, Brent Talbot, of Edward Laperouse Metal Works, who quickly responded to my call and was on site within a day or so assessing the damage and listening to our needs.  Brent and his design team quickly developed several renditions which allowed us to choose one that met all of our needs.  Laperouse’s field team that carried out the work were professional, courteous and meticulous in carrying out the work to our extreme satisfaction.  They never impacted our day to day activities and each day the job site was left in immaculate condition.  Upon completion we didn’t even know they had been there.  In our wrap up meeting, I told Brent that I hope future business dictates expansion and if so, he will be the first call I make.”
