Alphonse Sandera was born and raised in Flatonia, Texas. At an early age, he spent his free time working on the family farm.
In 1947, he moved to San Antonio where he met his wife, Bella Hanzelka. After 5 years of working for the railroad, Alphonse found his passion in carpentry and began his career working for a local homebuilder, Doug Scrutchin.
To support a wife and five young children, Alphonse worked 10 hour days as a framing contractor and spent countless nights and weekends working on projects for family, friends and the Church. He was wholeheartedly dedicated to the construction industry. He was meticulous with his quality and tireless in his efforts. Alphonse was true to his word and was often referred to as “the man who could get the job done.”
As a master carpenter, Alphonse managed the framing crew for Doug Scrutchin for 22 years. During those years he solidified his reputation as an honest, straight forward leader with impenetrable integrity.
In 1974, Alphonse Sandera formed his own company, A.L. Sandera Inc. One year later two of his sons, Larry and Robert, joined him in the family business.
Together, the three of them grew the company to be one of the most respected framing crews in San Antonio.
Over the years, A.L. Sandera Inc. served as the framing contractor for some of San Antonio's most elite homes. Architects and builders for the most discriminating homeowners would only use A.L. Sandera as their framing contractor. For nearly 60 years, personal residences for doctors, lawyers, CEO's, professional athletes and other high profile homeowners have been constructed by A.L. Sandera Inc.
In continuing the family legacy, Sandera Custom Homes and Remodeling was founded on the philosophy of treating each client with honesty and integrity while building quality craftsmanship into every Sandera custom home and remodeling project.
