About Ray LaBadie, Owner /President
Upon graduation from Hackettstown High School in Hackettstown N.J.,
I immediately started working for a construction company, first as a laborer and advanced quickly to a Master Carpenter. The trade of Master Carpenter gave me many strengths and skills to succeed as a General Contractor.
At 22 years of age, I relocated to Englewood, FL. For the first 4 years in Florida I was trained in commercial construction Layout to Lintel multi-story projects, installing concrete form work and iron work. Form work consisted of beams, columns, floor systems and concrete finishing by hand. I became an expert in concrete stair construction.
Beginning in 1984, I switched from commercial carpentry for custom homes. I was trained on the job in Florida home building construction techniques. With my experience, I became a lead carpenter.
In 1987, I became job site superintendent for Rick Montgomery Construction, Port Charlotte, FL, supervising residential and commercial projects.
In 1990, I became a State Certified General Contractor and opened R.J. LaBadie Construction, Inc., doing home remodeling, new home construction, and commercial construction.
In March of 2011, I opened Doors-N-More garage doors sales and service. We were voted best in Englewood our first year. Doors-N-More also sells and installs entry doors, Impact Windows and Hurricane shutters of all types.
