La Garde’s attention to detail isn’t by chance. He started in the construction industry doing framing in 1985, spending four years building custom homes before joining a finishing contractor who dealt with finished staircases and interior trim. From there, he joined a remodeling company, and two months after his 24th birthday, he obtained his certified general contractor license. In 2006, he opened South Shore Construction, and the company has been successfully servicing the West Coast of Florida ever since. It specializes in residential and commercial 
remodeling as well as new construction services. South Shore Construction provides clients with everything from design to turnkey projects and building everything in between.

With every project and every step along the way in each construction process, La Garde remains as involved as the day he started. He believes in keeping the majority of projects in-house and minimizing the use of subcontractors.


Based in Apollo Beach, South Shore Construction is a general contractor that began business in 2006 and offers home addition, bathroom remodeling, and accessibility construction.

From the set of ABC’s Morning Blend and the Action News lobby, to bathrooms and kitchens and everything in between South Shore Construction has the expertise to complete every job.

25 years of excellence.
