Bertussi Contracting, Inc. (BCI) was established in 1958 in Pearl River, NY, a close knit community in the southern Hudson Valley. Here, Louis Bertussi Sr. and his wife Anne, embarked on their American Dream with their six children – Anne, Cathy, Elena, John, Lou, & Tom.

Once an aspiring chemist, Lou Sr. established himself as the town plumber, working hard to create a foundation for his family and future generations. Anchored in the values of integrity, honesty, and passion, the Bertussi children soon caught the entrepreneurial bug and followed in their father’s footsteps, learning the skills of the plumbing trade, and growing the business into what it is today.


Through the years, Bertussi Contracting has grown into a well-oiled, top-notch construction company that can meet all your construction needs from conception to completion. Having our origins in plumbing and mechanical systems, allows us to be in control of the primary trades at the heart of many jobs. Bertussi’s has expanded to include all aspects of construction, including revamping of entire systems, numerous renovation projects, as well as complete ground up structures.

Today we are proud to say that we have been serving the Hudson Valley for over 66 years!

From its humble beginnings, BCI has grown into one of the leading General Contractors in the Hudson Valley with projects in over 40 school districts. We proudly feature some of our projects in this brochure.

Over $1 M worth of gold, silver, cash and stocks was discovered by our team while working on an old furnace in a home in Pearl River.

Every dime was turned over to the homeowners who were unaware of the existence of the treasure in their home.

The family, who could barely afford their repair bill ,went from despair to joy!

Our treasure lies in our loyal customers!
