About Lessard’s Rain Gutters
Lessard's Rain Gutters started in Granbury, TX, in 1979, with Rodger Lessard as the original owner. In the 1990s, Charles Gallagher, who lived in west Texas, decided to move and purchase Lessard's Rain Gutters. His decision was motivated by his elderly parents, who needed assistance and were in poor health.
Charles had two sons he started training to work in the company at age 12. His eldest son, Chaz, continued to work for the company every summer until he graduated from Texas A&M. Chaz continued to provide gutter installation on the weekends, in addition to his career as an Environmental Engineer. He eventually left his corporate job and started his own gutter company, Lessard's Rain Gutters II, LLC, that services the New Braunfels and San Antonio areas.
Chaz Gallagher, President/Operations Director
Chaz Gallagher was originally born in New Braunfels but grew up in Granbury, where he began learning the gutter trade at age 12.
Working every summer for his father, he eventually began leading his own crew at age 16. After graduating high school, he left to attend Texas A&M of College Station, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Bioenvironmental Science. After graduating, Chaz began his career at Alamo Cement, located in North San Antonio, as an Environmental Engineer.
Over the years, Chaz started his family and began to establish roots in the New Braunfels community. After 10 years with Alamo Cement, Chaz began to grow tired of the corporate life. He decided to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams and, with God’s help, opened up Lessard's Rain Gutters II in New Braunfels.
Chaz loves saltwater fishing and vacationing on the coast. He also enjoys spending time with his two young boys and amazing wife. He feels blessed to live in such a wonderful part of the world.
