Escalante makes sure those walls look their best


Name: Aureliano Sarmiento Escalante.

Age: 42.

Business name: ASE Desert View Drywall LLC, 360-540-0943,; 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Saturday. 

Town/neighborhood: I live in Peoria and work in Sun City, Sun City West and Surprise.

Personal background highlights: Friendly, professional, organized, reliable, flexible.

Professional background highlights: I have more than 20 years of experience in the drywall business and started when I was 19. I have always worked for other companies, doing commercial and residential. I do it all — hanging, taping, finishing and texture of any choice, matching any hand texture; skip trowel, smooth, spray texture; orange pill and knock down. I always work in a clean area, keeping my clients’ furniture and home in mind and in good condition.

What I am interested in: Making sure my clients are happy with the jobs performed, because that’s what is going to make my business grow. I am not in business to compete with anyone and my jobs are simply my work is quality.

What I do: Drywall installing, repairing, any type of plaster, taping, applying any type of texture and removing old popcorn ceiling in a professional manner.

What I like most about doing business here: I like to stay in the Sun Cities area because there is a lot of 55 and older clients for which I have a lot of respect and admiration.

What am promoting: My drywall family business company.

What am excited and why: I am excited about starting my drywall business and making it grow because I would love for my children to gain this trade experience in the future. Having your own business is very challenging and not easy. This is my dream; I am very happy and blessed because God has given me this opportunity.

Where was I before: I have been living in Arizona since December 2019 and prior was living in Washington state and California. I left Washington looking for the sunshine.

My family: I am married to my lovely wife Carmen; she is what I consider my trustful friend. My wife Carmen is a registered nurse currently working for Hospice of the Valley. She is a caring and loving person always looking after the others. We have five children, Jackie and Jasmine who are caregivers, Isac who is in high school and my babies are Isaias and Israel. Our children are our motivation.

My hobbies: Spending time with my family and being devotional to God. I have lots of faith and strong God believer.

My advice to today’s youth: Follow your dreams. Learn a special trade, and or go to college because life is getting way too expensive.

What inspires me: Life has inspired me in wanting to be successful.

Makes, walls, look, best
