John Gioffre, Owner/Head of Operations
John earned a bachelor’s degree from Rice University in political science. Shortly after graduating from Rice, John started a real estate investment company buying distressed properties and “reviving” them to a state where they could be rented or sold. While building up this company – which he stills owns and operates – he put himself through law school. When he was studying for the bar, John got an opportunity to be CEO of a real estate development company in Austin, Texas; he jumped at the opportunity and moved to Austin. Through this company, John had the chance to work on a wide range of real estate projects, including flips, multifamily, and land development. In the midst of his work on the Alpheus Project, he saw a great opportunity to serve the ever-expanding and demanding residential remodeling market to work directly for clients. Thus, Revent Remodeling & Construction was born. Since its inception, Revent Remodeling & Construction has completed hundreds of projects across the full spectrum of renovations – from removing load-bearing walls, rerouting or adding new plumbing through concrete slab, to creating dream kitchens and bathrooms. John loves what he does, and working with clients to make their dreams come true is a passion of his.
AJ: Shower & Tile Specialist
AJ started out as a helper for a bathroom specialist company in 2008. John and AJ met in Houston in 2012, and worked on various investment projects together. After moving to Austin, John knew it was crucial that he bring AJ with him to build up his team. AJ went to school to achieve his apprentice plumbing license, and he specializes in custom tile work, custom shower pans, and Schluter waterproofing systems. He takes pride in his work, and provides beautiful custom tile work and showers that you can take pride in, too.
Pedro: Master Carpenter/ Doors and Trim/ Flooring and Tile
At the age of 18, Pedro started working for a large framing and exterior company. He began by carrying sheets of plywood one at a time to the top of the roof, in the Texas heat, so the decking could be installed. Pedro eventually moved up to installing the decking. For 7 years Pedro put decking on roofs, learned how to professionally install doors and windows, properly do sheathing and exterior siding, and became familiar with framing.
When he was 25, Pedro went out on his own doing exterior and framing work. He worked with many large production builders doing their framing, siding, decking, doors, windows, and trim. Over the next decade, Pedro perfected his skills and become a Master carpenter.
Pedro became the contractor-of-choice for a prominent landlord in Austin. What started off as exterior work and repairs evolved into full extensive remodels. This is when Pedro decided to join forces with his brother, Antonio. Pedro handled all carpentry, exterior work and framing, while Antonio handled drywall, texture and paint.
Pedro and Antonio crossed paths with John through a referral for a large fencing project. This led to the full overhaul of the Alpheus Project , an over 6,000 square-foot commercial quadplex, which took more than a year to complete. The Alpheus Project was such a success, Revent Remodeling & Construction was born as a result. Together, Pedro and Antonio create works of beauty and timelessness that make each Revent Remodeling & Construction project special.
Antonio: Master Painter/Drywall and Texture
When he was 16 years old, Antonio started working for a large drywall company as a laborer cutting sheetrock and learning how to do patches. Over the next 5 years, he learned how to hang drywall, tape float and texture. He was promoted to lead man position for the company in charge of his own crew. Doing patch work, they would average 8 houses per day. Matching texture was extremely important, and this is where Antonio mastered the skill of texture.
Antonio switched to working at a commercial painting company, and over the next 5 years he perfected his painting techniques with a spray gun and a roller. During his time there, he was again promoted to lead man, in charge of his own crew, and then finally to foreman, in charge of running multiple crews and projects.
After perfecting drywall and painting, Antonio joined forces with his brother Pedro. Between the two of them they had all their bases covered – Antonio could handle all the drywall, texture and paint, while Pedro would handle framing, doors/trim and exterior work.
