40 years ago, Al Couto came to America from Portugal with a green card and ambition. He wanted to make a living, raise a family, and do something that he loved. He tried being a baker, he opened a sandwich shop and had a job in manufacturing, all of which did not work out. In the mid 70’s he took a job for a construction company and started to find his niche, where he excelled quickly with hard work, common sense, and dedication.
On November 24th, 1982 he started his own company called Couto & Sons Construction and started building homes. Nearly 30 years later, his heart is still in it.
In 2001, his son Donny Couto followed in his father’s footsteps and started building homes in Hood County, Texas. His skills as a new home builder started getting better, and better, and customers took notice. A few short years later, Al & Donny joined forces and started a company called Couto Homes. Together, Al and Donny have put together a dream team of employee’s that share the same values and are committed to excellence.
The values of the company remain unchanged from 30 years ago. Treat people right, never go back on your word, offer the highest quality home, highest quality service, and deliver the best possible quality and value in a home.
Every custom home is built with heart and dedication. When a customer is unhappy – we don’t sleep until they are. If something isn’t done right, we will make it right. Our dedication to our craft is why we’re the finest custom home builders in north Texas.
