Abcore was created over 40 years ago by owner Keith Lescarbeau in 1978. Keith started the company due to his passion for carpentry and working on historic buildings. Keith started off working with SWAP (Stop Wasting Abandoned Property) for the city of Providence under the Cianci administration. Keith created specifications and estimates to fix old buildings for the state in order to keep them from being demolished.
While working for SWAP, Keith attended Johnson & Wales University to obtain his real estate degree, and worked under master carpenter Amadeo Tella. The culmination of these interests inspired Keith to create Abcore Restoration. Ever since then Keith has been dedicated to restoring and renovating historic homes, landmarks, and buildings.
