Rizziero Boccia

After tenure as a bricklayer with local 41 in New York City, Rizziero Boccia founded a waterproofing and masonry company in 1955. He quickly earned the reputation of performing the highest quality work and maintained that high standard of workmanship for over 50 years.

From design to completion, a BOCCIA job has Rizziero’s stamp on it. He has personally designed and executed well over 25,000 jobs. These jobs range from the most complicated of waterproofing solutions to restoration of historical landmarks. Some of the most prominent New York Architects and Engineers consult with Rizziero and refer him on their most challenging projects.

The single most gratifying part of his work? “Being able to work with my three sons,” says Mr. Boccia. Ray is known to have a glee in his eyes when speaking of his children…and his thirteen grandchildren
