Meet Antonio “Tony” Acevedo
My name is Antonio, but everyone calls me ‘Tony’! I am a California native and have lived in Southern California with my family for the past 20 years.
I have recently joined the Patriot Plumbing Rooter & Restoration Team. I am head of construction. I was exposed to the trade since I was 8 years old! I enjoyed being with my uncle who worked as an electrician. I would go out with him to work and was keen to learn from him. I enjoyed this type of work but soon wanted to expand my knowledge and work in all areas of the construction trade. I developed my skills and learned how to plumb, weld, install roofing, drywall, and concrete. I also obtained my Diesel Mechanic Certification and would work on oil tankers, container ships, and cruise ships.
Over the years, I have accumulated over 14 years’ experience in commercial construction trade. This enabled me to build a strong foundation of knowledge and hands-on skills which I can apply to all residential &commercial projects. I have been fortunate to meet strong trade mentors along the way and have created long-lasting relationships with them. I still work alongside some individuals I started out with.
I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of my career because of the variety of work I undertake and the fact that there’s something new to do every day. It keeps things interesting and opens the door to new challenges and projects. I am driven by acquiring knowledge, learning new techniques and figuring issues out. I’m task minded. If I have a task to do, I’m focused on that task until it’s completed well. My reputation means a lot to me and it’s this that keeps me focused and accountable.
I’m a ‘mellow person’, and when not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, children and extended family. I love being a dad and like to take an ‘active’ role. I coach my daughter’s softball team. My family and I love to go to the movies and enjoy eating sushi together.
I look forward to attending to your needs and being of service!
