Started by Paul Panagiotidis (left) and his brother-in-law George Avgeris (right) in 1989, Total Home Construction Corp. has grown steadily over the years. Recently the company has begun expanding its showroom and is seeking a second showroom location.

The brothers-in-law are developing systems and procedures — including a new siding system — to differentiate Total Home Construction from other local remodelers. The goal: to double the company's revenue and become Long Island's largest vinyl siding and roofing business.

In its highly competitive market, Total Home Construction has cultivated many “raving fans” who hire the company for repeat remodeling work as well as for roofing, siding, and window projects. “Repeat customers are our biggest asset,” says Panagiotidis, a hands-on owner who visits projects daily. “I'm the first one in and the last one out,” he says.

With a loyal staff that has been with Total Home Construction from its inception, the company maintains a steady focus on professionalism and providing detailed estimates, quality craftsmanship, and what Panagiotidis calls “fanatical customer service.”
