Louie Tangalakis, Elias Construction

Louie Tangalakis the President of Elias Construction Company is a Southern California native who started his construction career working for a renowned architect based in Beverly Hills. Louie started out on the crew as an apprentice carpenter building and renovating homes in some of the most exclusive neighborhoods of Los Angeles.  He then began working directly under the principle architect as job superintendent servicing his elite clientele for several years.

In 1985 Louie went out on his own performing kitchen and bathroom renovations and other home improvements on the Westside and the Valley. By the late 80’s Louie was planning the construction of his own first new construction project. The project a two story southwest style house on a small hillside lot in the Mount Washington area of Los Angeles remains a source of history and pride today. The planning of the project and permit process gave Louie valuable experience navigating through the labyrinth of clearances and requirements needed to get final project approval.

Louie used this first experience and continued as a general building contractor, building new homes in the hills above the City and on the flat lands of the Los Angeles basin, while performing even more extensive renovations, remodels and additions. Over the past 30 plus years, Louie and Elias Construction have been performing residential and commercial additions and renovations throughout various communities in the greater Los Angeles area.

Louie’s building experience includes a broad range of home styles from the Contemporary view home, Classic beach cottage, California Spanish, Mediterranean and Country Ranch. Two and three story additions, basement construction, kitchen and bathroom remodels, ocean front decks, recording studios, house moving, horse stables, foundation underpinning and medical office space, are some of the projects he has done. With over 30 years of experience, Louie and his crews have renovated or built practically everything.

Environmentally friendly building is nothing new to Louie Tangalakis.  His experience building and installing solar panels began as early as the 1970’s. Many of his early renovations of older homes in the area included the use of reclaimed building materials and products to match or blend with existing architectural elements of the project. Although materials and technology in construction has evolved over the recent years, Louie has been able to improve upon and incorporate the latest products into his projects.
